Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette

Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette ($39.00 for 0.75 oz.) has three warm-toned highlighters–peachy gold, rosy pink, golden bronze–that leans toward the more extreme of highlighters, as they’re very shimmery and produce a strong sheen when applied. They are easiest to use at medium or higher coverage, but with a light touch and a feathery brush, you can get a less intense look. The powders were consistent in feel, performance, and payoff: they were soft, just a smidgen dusty but blendable on the skin with rich color payoff and a high-shine, frosted finish. I had a noticeable emphasis of pores when I wore the shades at medium or greater coverage. All three shades lasted a solid eight hours on me before fading. On my light-medium skin tone, all three produced some color as well as shine, so I expect that lighter skin tones will find these more to work as highlighting blushes, while darker skin tones will appreciate the lack of white in the bases across these shades.

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go). The majority of the blushes in the palettes are mostly matte, and they look very smooth on the skin–they actually seemed to hide texture and pores, which was interesting. Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.
