By Terry Light & Tan Vibes Sun Designer Palette

By Terry Light & Tan Vibes Sun Designer Palette ($82.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes six shades that can be used as highlighters, blushes, and/or bronzers. As I mentioned in my review of Tan & Flash Cruise, there was a lighter/mote muted option, and this is it. I had the same experience with this palette as I did with the other: I was impressed by the softness, blendability, and finish of these on the skin–they’re very easy to use and diffuse, and the finish is glowing without emphasizing pores. Despite being very soft and finely-milled, they’re not really powdery or dusty; they seem to have a decent amount of binder so they adhere well and don’t get messy in the pan. The wear varied from eight to eight and a half hours across the six shades.

By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise Sun Designer Palette

By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise Sun Designer Palette ($82.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes six shades that can be used as highlighters, blushes, and/or bronzers. There are two variations, this and a lighter version with more muted shades on the left side (which I expect to review as well). I was impressed by the softness, blendability, and finish of these on the skin–they’re very easy to use and diffuse, and the finish is glowing without emphasizing pores. Despite being very soft and finely-milled, they’re not really powdery or dusty; they seem to have a decent amount of binder so they adhere well and don’t get messy in the pan.

Givenchy Moonlight Saison & Ambre Saison Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powders

Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new “baked” powder that comes in five shades; one is a highlighter and four are in various bronzing hues. Some retailers have the highlighter/bronzer separated out, though they seem to be part of the same formula otherwise. I bought the highlighter and one of the bronzer shades to check out. The formula is decent with a very smooth texture, which has a firmer press and requires a dense brush or a heavy hand to get coverage out of it. The powder blends out fairly easily, wears eight hours, and neither shade emphasized pores/skin texture for me.

MAC Yellow Topaz CCB & Firebrush Bronzer

MAC Yellow Topaz Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, yellow gold with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had sheer color payoff that was somewhat buildable to semi-sheer coverage. The texture of this shade was less emollient than other Cream Colour Bases, so it had less shine and a subtle shimmered effect on the skin. I think the finish is more apparent in person than in photos, but it is a subtler effect. It lasted for seven hours on me (of the eight hours it is marketed as having). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
