Chrissy Teigen

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes two highlighters, a blush, and a bronzer housed in a large, square-shaped palette. One of the four products is a repeat from the permanent line (Rose Gold), while the other three are exclusive to the palette. It’s well worth some consideration if you’re a fan of warmer cheek products in hues of peach, pink, and coral and like your shimmer. The four shades coordinated well with each other and layered nicely, blended without issue, and lasted well on the skin.

The palette contains $48.86 worth of Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, $12.92 worth of Sunlit Bronzer, and $13.76 worth of Luminous Blush, which is a total value of $75.54.

Pretty Vulgar Hush, Blush Make Them Blush Powder Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a muted, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers.

The formula is supposed to have “silky smooth” feel, long-wear, and be “pigment-rich.” The texture was thin, a little dusty, and a little on the drier side. It was difficult to blend out when I applied it to the cheeks, and I had to buff the edges with a clean brush to get more even results, which is not typically an extra step I find necessary with a high-quality blush. The better part of the formula was how long the blush lasted–nine hours–on my cheeks.

Pretty Vulgar Glimmers of BS Shimmering Swan Highlighter ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The powder highlighter is supposed to be “velvety smooth” and “highly pigmented” with a “lustrous” finish. The consistency was smooth, blendable, and easy to work with whether I wanted a barely-there highlight or true-to-pan color, though it was quite pigmented so a moderate touch yielded a very strong highlight on the skin. If one wanted something more diffused or subtle, I would recommend using a lighter hand and a feathery brush.

The powder sat well on the skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture, while it still gave a radiant glow. On my normal-to-dry skin, the highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours before starting to fade noticeably on me.

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base ($50.00 for 1.00 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there golden pearl. It’s a lighter bronzer, which would make it more suitable for fair to light-medium complexions but is likely to get lost on medium and deeper skin tones–I wish it was available in more shades.

The formula is described as a “light cream-gel bronzer” that gives a “sun-bathed look” that can be worn on its own or “over or under” foundation. The consistency was denser, not at all spongy, and smooth like a gel but thinner like a cream product. Initially, there was a touch of dewiness as the product dried down, but within a minute or so, the product dried down and had a more satin-to-matte finish–not quite matte but not luminous or glossy at all. It was easy to buff along the edges of the face for an all-over warmth or applied more heavily to the cheeks. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to true-to-pan coverage or easily sheered out for barely-there warmth. I felt like it had a more visible effect over foundation or over bare skin, and it worked well in either instance. Unless one wears a very, very sheer coverage foundation, it was largely lost when worn underneath a foundation.

MAC Baiana Bronze Bronzing Powder ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, rosy undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a really smooth, silky consistency that wasn’t dusty or powdery. The bronzer applied evenly to the skin, and it was easy to diffuse and blend out along the edges. Though it is a more pigmented bronzer, I felt like using a light hand with it (or a less dense brush) made sheerer coverage achievable without having to spend eons buffing and blending down the color. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

MAC Bronzing Powders are supposed to have “sheer coverage” and give a “natural finish” with “sun-kissed” color. Unfortunately, there was nothing sheer about this shade! If you prefer greater color payoff in your bronzer, I think you’ll be happy with this one, but if you want the sheer coverage as described, I would look elsewhere.

MAC Bronze Hero Lustre Drops ($21.00 for 0.60 fl. oz.) is a rich, deep copper with warm, reddish undertones and a fine, pearl sheen. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-sheer coverage, if desired. There was subtle color and dewiness on my complexion when I used it as a cheek highlighter/bronzer. It also worked well mixed in with body cream for a subtle, warming effect on legs and decolletage. The consistency was thin, definitely watery, and blendable without lifting up base products easily. On its own, the highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

Lustre Drops are supposed to be “water-based” liquid highlighter that has a “sheer, natural-looking” effect that is “luminous” and “shimmering.” They can be mixed with base products (like primer, moisturizer, or foundation) as well as worn alone as a spot highlighter. I like this type of product best for mixing and getting a dewier finish to my base or as a base for underneath blush or highlighter. If you’re someone who enjoys a subtle highlight on the skin or likes a dewy finish, the formula works nicely on its own for just that result. They come in a puff paint-like bottle, and the fine nozzle is great for controlling how much you want.
