Sweet Peach Glow

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette ($42.00 for 0.39 oz.) contains a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. The blush contains more product (almost double) compared to the highlighter and bronzing shade. Everything is housed in a pink-to-orange gradient, metal tin (like the Sweet Peach palette). The palette was good, though the shades themselves may be found within your stash already, and if you have a deeper skin tone, the blush and bronzer might not be visible enough for your liking. The texture of all three shades was firmer and denser but not really stiff–they are in the vein of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes, NARS Dual-Intensity Blushes, etc. They blended out nicely and lasted for eight to nine hours on me. The palette has the same peach scent as all of the other Sweet Peach products.

Papa Don't Peach

Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Sweet Peach Blush ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a medium, coral-copper with warm undertones and a pinkish tint paired with a soft, frosted finish.

It is supposed to be “rich” and “pigmented” with “buildable payoff” and has a peach scent. The blush has been released before–the last I can recall was in the Everything is Nice palette–but I found this release to be darker and pinker with less warmth (which I think will make it more wearable across more skin tones). It had good color payoff that was easily blended out on the skin, and the color could be diffused and sheered out, if desired. The texture was soft, fairly smooth–a little dry overall–and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture but had a noticeable sheen. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

Estee Lauder Lover’s Blush Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm undertones and a golden, satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The texture was smooth but firm, so it took some prodding to get enough product to transfer on a brush (or else use a denser brush altogether) to apply to the cheeks to begin with. It blended out fairly well, but I think the lighter color made it a little more forgiving compared to a deeper shade. It wore for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Chanel Elegance (370) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin sheen. The formula is supposed to be “soft” and “silky” with a radiant finish. Elegance had good color payoff–not quite opaque but definitely buildable to opaque coverage in two layers–with a soft, silky texture that didn’t kick up much excess powder in the pan. The blush blended out beautifully on the skin and gave it a natural sheen that did not look shimmery, just glowy. On me, it wore well for just over eight hours before fading.

Chanel Coco Code Harmonie de Blush ($70.00 for 0.38 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with fine gold shimmer over a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage.

The Harmonie de Blush formula is described as a “multi-task[ing]” product that can be used for highlighting, bronzing, or blushing. There are four shades–a light, shimmery pink, peachy-brown, coral-red, and golden beige–that are easiest to use swirled together, though you can concentrate your blush more toward two of the four shades (vertically or horizontally) for more/less shimmer or color. The majority of the color comes from the coral-red, while most of the shimmer comes from the golden beige. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery or too firm in the pan, so it was easy to apply to the skin. As I blended the blush out, it yielded a luminous sheen that wasn’t noticeably shimmery on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Skin Twinkle Vol. 2

Tarte Skin Twinkle Vol. 2 Highlighting Palette ($42.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a slim, rectangular compact that contains four highlighters from white gold to medium bronze. It is a follow-up to last spring’s Skin Twinkle palette, and it is definitely much improved, because it did not contain a “universal matte sand” shade for brightening the under eye (which was definitely not universal), and that particular shade actually had a more papery, dry texture that was strange. This year’s palette was more consistent, and all four shades are highlighters, so it’s a bit more fitting for more skin tones as a result. The brand also increased the value/amount in the palette to 0.70 oz., compared to last year’s which only contained 0.49 oz. (and they are the same price).

If you aren’t already inundated with highlighters, it’s a nice set. All four shades were very dupable, though, so for those who already have a few go-to highlighters, definitely check your stash for redundancy. For the most part, they’re soft, smooth, blendable, and definitely yield a glow (rather high-shine than “natural” based on their marketing) with good pigmentation and eight-hour wear.
