Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette ($45.00 for 0.54 oz.) includes six shades of blushes from a pop of pink to a matte bronze. The Afterglow formula is supposed to last for eight hours, sheer coverage. The funny thing about the Afterglow formula is that I don’t really think it’s sheer; it’s more of a medium, buildable coverage formula, which I imagine is something that a lot of people like about it, but just keep in mind that that is how pigmentation is judged from: sheer coverage. The products performed well overall with the only “flaw” being that pigmentation tended to be semi-opaque to opaque rather than sheer. The palette contains $61.04 worth of Afterglow blush.

Too Faced Rosy Glow Candlelight Glow

Too Faced Rosy Glow Candlelight Glow ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) features a light, white gold paired with a gold-shimmered pink. The warmer shimmer dominates against my skin tone, but I think it’ll pull a little cooler (the base color will be stronger) on fairer and cooler complexions. The texture of both powders was nice, though the right side was shimmery enough to emphasize pores.

Guerlain Smile Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a single pan split in half with a darker and lighter shade with both shades running on the warm side with soft shimmer. Despite sharing a physican pan, the darker shade seemed to have a significantly better, smoother texture, while the lighter shade was drier and harder to work with.
