It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The texture was very soft and smooth, while it had a firmer feel to it overall, so it seems like a product that would take awhile to get through, but the firmness didn’t make it hard to apply or get color payoff out of the powder. It had medium, buildable coverage, which is in line with the brand’s description of the formula. Sunset Glow applied easily to the skin as it was quite blendable, while it wore well for eight hours before I noticed it fading along the edges.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The texture is dense, firm but not difficult to use, with a very smooth, finely-milled consistency that blends out effortlessly. It is a stronger highlighter, so if you prefer very subtle glow, it might not be the right product for you; it is possible to get a very, very light sheen, but it definitely lends itself to a more moderate sheen when applied with a medium-hand and typical highlighter brush. The highlighter had medium, buildable color coverage. It didn’t emphasize pores on me, and it added a little color to my skin tone (light-medium). The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter
Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade has been part of the permanent range for awhile, but it is being repromoted alongside the three new shades, and I thought it was a good excuse to update photos/swatches of it as well as pull new dupes. The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency that does kick up a noticeable amount of powder in the pan, but it didn’t appear dry or chalky on the skin. The color wore well for eight hours, which is in line with most formulas for me, but it is below the length claimed. Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Cinematic (P, $23.00) is warmer (85% similar). KIKO 105 Dark Rose (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Capri (P, $58.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Rose Bronze (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Plum Ombre (LE, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate Matte (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Seduce (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Elevated (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Piaf (Shade) (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Impress (LE, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Unearthed (LE, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Fetish (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals The Close Call (P, $22.00) is warmer (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan, while it didn’t kick up powder like most of the Blush range, which was a nice surprise. I think the texture is more refined and smoother with this highlighter formula than the blush formula. It produced a nice glow to the skin without looking metallic or overtly shimmery, so I think anyone who likes a light to moderate sheen may find this to their liking. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on me (but not the 12 promised!). Chanel Camelia de Chanel (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Cover FX Celestial (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior #001 (P, $56.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Stunner (LE, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Ray of Light (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Highlighter) (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Plisse Lumiere de Chanel (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar).

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Capri The Neo-Bronzer ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) contains a pink-peach highlighter, mid-tone rose pink blush, and reddish-brown bronzer that create a a muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a luminous finish when swirled together. Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Baby Love (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Heart Throb (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Laura Geller Boysenberry (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tarte Celebrated (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s designed to be used individually or altogether for “the perfect sun-kissed look.” The powder is described as “finely-milled” and the finish is “natural-looking.” It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan, so it was easy to get color onto the brush while still being nearly effortless to diffuse and soften on the skin. The shimmer produced a smooth, luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores but wasn’t so subtle that it was hard to see. The only downside was that there was some excess product kicked up in the pan, which made it harder to use the shades individually as inevitably one shade’s powdery bits would wind up on another, so it is a product I think is better for someone who doesn’t require them to apply as three distinct shades. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before I noticed fading.

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer
Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer

Kevyn Aucoin Siena The Neo-Bronzer ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) consists of a gradient of light, peachy-beige; muted coral; and subdued brown with reddish undertones that swirls and creates a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a luminous finish. Surratt Beauty Parfait (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Revlon Racy Rose (008) (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Style (P, $22.00) is brighter (85% similar). NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (DC, $9.99) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s designed to be used individually or altogether for “the perfect sun-kissed look.” The powder is described as “finely-milled” and the finish is “natural-looking.” The powder was very soft, smooth, and blendable, while kicking up a bit of excess powder in the pan, but it didn’t look dusty or dry on the skin. It seemed denser and more refined compared to some of Kevyn Aucoin’s more matte blushes. The texture sat well on the skin and yielded a noticeable sheen but wasn’t overtly shimmery nor did it emphasize pores or my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation that could easily be applied with a lighter hand for a more diffused, sheerer look, if desired. On me,
it wore well for eight hours before fading. It’s easier to use it two shades at a time, rather than one, but it is possible to use just one shade at a time with most highlighter brushes.

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit
Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four ultra-shimmery highlighters in warmer hues. The formula is consistent in the palette and also consistent with the other two, previously-released Glow Kits. I wish they had gone darker on both of the lighter shades–Summer and Moonstone–and differentiated better between the two, as they look quite similar even heavily applied but almost the same when diffused/sheered out (more like how typical highlighters are applied).

Bronzed is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was fairly blendable and easy to use. The texture was almost too dense on the skin, which made blending less effortless compared to some highlighters, but it didn’t require too much extra time to blend it out. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Cover FX Candlelight (P, $34.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Candlelight (P, $42.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

Looxi Beauty Divine (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (-, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Summer is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It wasn’t quite as high-shine as Bronzed, but it’s not a subtle highlight! It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, finely-milled texture that blended out easily. I noticed very slight emphasis of my skin’s texture when applied with about medium coverage. The highlighter wore well for just over eight hours. Anastasia Sunburst (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Now's the Time (LE, $26.00) is more muted (95% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Turn It On Pearl (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Anastasia White Sand (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE, )(90% similar). Makeup Geek Midnight Sun (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tourmaline is a muted, medium-dark taupe-bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. Of the four, this one emphasized pores the most noticeably to me, and it’s one that needs a light hand to minimize the impact on the texture of the skin. The color payoff was good, while the texture was smooth in the pan and extremely easy to blend on the skin. I was able to get eight hours of wear out of this shade. Estee Lauder Modern Mercury (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nude Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Riviera (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moonstone is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a slightly sparkly, metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a fairly smooth, blendable texture–it wasn’t quite as creamy or as buttery compared to the other shades in the palette. It applied easily with a nice, diffused edge accomplished without trouble, and it seemed to be so bright applied that it didn’t emphasize my pores. LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Celestial (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).
