Too Faced Sparkling Bellini Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush

Too Faced Sparkling Bellini Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush

Too Faced Sparkling Bellini Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a pop of medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and sparkling, gold shimmer and micro-glitter. MAC Simply Bliss (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (DC, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Style (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced I Will Always Love You (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Immortal Flower (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). NARS Soulshine #2 (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

According to the brand, the formula is supposed to have “easy application” with a “buildable finish.” It is a baked formula, so the drier, looser consistency wasn’t a total surprise, but it is prone to sheering out and kicking up excess in the pan if you’re not careful. The pan is large enough where you can use two shades or all three together without a lot of trouble, but to get just one shade, it is harder to fit an average-sized blush brush, and even a lot of the highlighter brushes I have were too large to just get a single strip of color. It is most practically used as a mix of at least two shades. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to about semi-opaque) with a nice, luminous sheen on the skin that didn’t emphasize pores. On me, it lasted for seven hours before fading.

Laura Geller Honeysuckle Baked Blush-n-Brighten

Laura Geller Honeysuckle Baked Blush-n-Brighten ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is medium-dark, orange-y brown with strong, warm undertones and a frosted sheen.

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Baked Blush-n-Brighten formula is supposed to be “smooth” and “long-wearing” with “a blend of rich, marbleized color.” It had really nice pigmentation that was nearly opaque with a very smooth, blendable texture, it was easy to apply less and build-up coverage as well, which made it a more versatile product overall. I find my favorite part about this range is when they’re as blendable as this shade, as they’re forgiving on the skin, easy to use, and have a great glow-y finish (without emphasizing pores) when all is said and done. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit
Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four ultra-shimmery highlighters in warmer hues. The formula is consistent in the palette and also consistent with the other two, previously-released Glow Kits. I wish they had gone darker on both of the lighter shades–Summer and Moonstone–and differentiated better between the two, as they look quite similar even heavily applied but almost the same when diffused/sheered out (more like how typical highlighters are applied).

Bronzed is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was fairly blendable and easy to use. The texture was almost too dense on the skin, which made blending less effortless compared to some highlighters, but it didn’t require too much extra time to blend it out. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Cover FX Candlelight (P, $34.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Candlelight (P, $42.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Ignite (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sunlight (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Avalon (LE, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Divine (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (-) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Summer is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It wasn’t quite as high-shine as Bronzed, but it’s not a subtle highlight! It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, finely-milled texture that blended out easily. I noticed very slight emphasis of my skin’s texture when applied with about medium coverage. The highlighter wore well for just over eight hours. Anastasia Sunburst (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Now's the Time (LE, $26.00) is more muted (95% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Turn It On Pearl (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Star Reader (LE, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Burst (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 13 Ivory (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 2 Frozen Gold (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Makeup Geek Electrify (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush I (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Anastasia White Sand (LE) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Midnight Sun (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE)(90% similar). Anastasia Marshmallow (LE) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tourmaline is a muted, medium-dark taupe-bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. Of the four, this one emphasized pores the most noticeably to me, and it’s one that needs a light hand to minimize the impact on the texture of the skin. The color payoff was good, while the texture was smooth in the pan and extremely easy to blend on the skin. I was able to get eight hours of wear out of this shade. Estee Lauder Modern Mercury (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nude Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Riviera (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moonstone is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a slightly sparkly, metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a fairly smooth, blendable texture–it wasn’t quite as creamy or as buttery compared to the other shades in the palette. It applied easily with a nice, diffused edge accomplished without trouble, and it seemed to be so bright applied that it didn’t emphasize my pores. LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Celestial (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Crystal Glare (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). NYX Moonbeam (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar).

The Baked Blush-n-Brighten formula is supposed to be “smooth” and “long-wearing” with “a blend of rich, marbleized color.” It had rich color payoff with a very smooth, finely-milled texture that didn’t kick up excess like some of the other shades have in this range. The color blended out beautifully on the skin and required little effort to get a really diffused, glowing finish. When I wore it, the blush wore well for eight hours before it started to break down.

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains three cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The formula on some of the more matte shades was very, very silky and soft, but they kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and often sheered out when blended–more so than some of Tarte’s past palettes. I noticed that some of the darker shades seemed to become more muted just a few minutes after applying, so it felt like I had to really pat and pack on some shades to get definition and depth out of them. I think the colors complement each other well, and I liked that there were some plummy hues thrown in with warmer, more orange-toned shades. I also felt like the cheek colors actually worked with the palette and its different color combinations, so the scheme is very cohesive. The palette is slated to be fully released on June 6th!

Sweet Tea is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a mostly matte finish, but there were a few gold sparkles in the product. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky feel in the pan, which was fairly blendable and lasted for eight hours on me. Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Happy Hour (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Lush Light Bronze (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain #03 (P, $53.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Scone (LE, $27.00) is lighter (85% similar). Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is lighter (80% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Does This Thing Really Work? is a muted, pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle that sits over a matte base. The sparkle doesn’t bind well with the color itself, so it doesn’t tend to stick well to the skin; the few bits that do migrate and move throughout the day or eventually fall off. The texture was smooth and soft, but it was somewhat powdery and looked a little dry on my normal-to-dry skin. It lasted for eight hours (not the 12-hours promised by the formula, though eight hours is similar to wear I get with most blush formulas). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Cruel Intentions (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Debbie Harry Blush (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay TMI (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). KIKO 112 Light Plum (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC The Perfect Cheek (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Stila Dusty Rose (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Sand Pink (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #310 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Empowering (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $27.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Wrapped Candy (P, $27.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Oasis (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gator Wings is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic, glittery finish. There are large glitter particles in this one, and they show up on the face a lot, but they do not look even, so sometimes they catch the light and look sparkly, while other times they don’t and look more like specks of dirt on the skin. This emphasized my skin’s natural texture quite a bit, so if that’s a deal-breaker, I would recommend using a very light touch and a fan brush, then tapping powder over it to minimize the effect. It wore well for seven and a half hours before turning patchy. Tarte Champagne (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Bombshell (P, $7.50) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Sunlight (P) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Gypsum (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 3 Gold Champagne (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Butterscotch (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

#SFS is a light-medium, muted, peachy-pink with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too dusty or too firm. It wore well for seven hours before fading on me. Too Faced Christmas Blend (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Future (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #1 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Kylie Cosmetics Seashell (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Stila Metallic Peach (LE, $18.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Natural Peaches is a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff, but the consistency was so soft that it was dusty, which led to it sheering out when it was applied to the skin. This would benefit from a primer, as it would give it a better surface to adhere to. It wore well for seven hours. Too Faced Millennial (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Toffee (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Spread the Love (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S714 Bisque (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Soft Peach (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Ginger (P, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S718 Salmon (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever S710 Peach (P, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dogman is a medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a dash of fine gold sparkle. The sparkles dust away almost immediately upon application, so I would consider this a matte brown overall. The formula was very smooth and finely-milled, but it kicks up excess product and sheers out on the skin. I noticed that it also faded after a few minutes to more of a muted brown, whereas initially it had more of a warm, burnt orange appearance. After that initial change, the color was good for seven hours. Zoeva Cheap Bar (P) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Top Notch (LE, $5.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Popular Demand (P, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Not For Sale (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Bitter (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Big Baby is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish.

Sassy Bun is a medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a looser consistency in the pan and was a bit drier to work with, so some of the shimmer seemed to separate from the base color when I blended it out. I think it would be better over a primer or with a slightly dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Viseart Minx #4 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Sippy Sippy is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle separates from the base color, so applied, it looks mostly matte, if not entirely matte. The sparkles were trapped in the brush or fell out when I blended out the color. It had a really soft, silky, and finely-milled feel to the powder itself, but it did sheer out against bare skin. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Choco Cake (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Haunting is a muted, light-medium mauve with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was dusty and prone to sheering out on the skin. I don’t think this works well without a good primer, and then it should be patted in place but minimal blending should occur or else the shimmer pulls away from the base color. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably. Clarins Silver Pink (05) (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Aglow (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora Free Hug (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Uncommon is a medium taupe-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was excellent, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too soft or too firm. It wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Divine Rule (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Clarins The Essentials #5 (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Mancat is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though was not fully opaque, with a very soft, finely-milled texture that didn’t sheer out too much when I worked with it. This shade blended out fairly well and wore for eight hours. Chanel Pulsion (112) (P, $29.50) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm Moderato (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

The Baked Blusher formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “natural soft effect” with a “hint of shimmer.” It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage (when built up) that had a lightly dusty texture that kicked up some excess in the pan but did not appear dry or chalky applied to the skin. The shimmer diffuses to a beautiful, glowy finish that didn’t emphasize pores or my skin’s natural texture–just a smooth, luminous sheen. It started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. I really wish these were either more pigmented or the brand more accurately described them, as they have all been sheer to medium in coverage.
