5 Silver Dust

Make Up For Ever 5 Silver Dust Star Lit Liquid ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a dirty, grayish taupe with silver, gold, white, and teal glitter. It is more “wearable” than you might expect of a silver/gray as a highlighter, and that had a lot to do with the sheerer formula. It had more of a cooler, silver effect that did highlight on my cheeks/eyes as the base color did not come into play.

5 Silver Dust had sheer to medium coverage, but it was hard to get higher coverage than medium as the layers would create a thicker, more uneven surface that was uncomfortable on the lid and impractical on the cheeks (looked very much like layers of chunky glitter sitting on the skin that had a tendency to flake away if I accidentally touched the area). The texture was thin, water-like, which made it easy to spread across the skin and kept it sheerer for each layer applied.

It wore well for eight hours on the cheeks, but there were a few glitter particles that had migrated on my face over time. When I tried it on the eyes, the product showed a bit of creasing after seven hours of wear and had some fallout over time, though it was not as much fallout as I typically experience with glittery, powder eyeshadows.

15 Golden Pink

Make Up For Ever 15 Golden Pink Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, rose gold variation on copper with a metallic sheen. It was still warm-toned, but it was one of the “less warm” copper shades due to the stronger pink-red base.

The powder had a soft, finely-milled texture that felt silky to the touch and blended out fairly well both wet and dry, even when used more heavily. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage with dry application, and it was mostly opaque (and used less product) applied with a dampened brush. It was more blendable applied dry than wet for me, especially if I was trying to get more of a medium coverage level (like as a cheek color). As an eyeshadow, the color wore well for eight hours, and as a cheek color, it lasted for eight and a half hours. As a lip product, it was visible layered over most lip products but is a little closer to a greater number of lip colors, so when that happened, the impact of this shade layered was mostly the sheen.

4 Golden Peach

Make Up For Ever 4 Golden Peach Star Lit Liquid ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is light-medium gold with warm undertones and flecks of pink, gold, silver, and lighter copper glitter. The pink glitter seemed to be the most noticeable on the skin.

4 Golden Peach had sheer to medium coverage, so the amount and type of coverage was in line with how it was described, though it is hard to get really opaque coverage, as the consistency can get really thick and be harder to work with (and more noticeable in terms of that thickness on the lid). The consistency was very thin, water-like, which made it easy to spread out but also ensured that it was a sheerer product as it would immediately sheer out when I worked with it. It dried down quickly, but I felt I had enough time to blend and spread out the highlighter as long as I worked one area at a time.

As a cheek highlighter, it lasted well for eight hours but had a few particles that had migrated to other areas of the face, so it does “shed” and lose some glitter while worn. As an eye product, it was better as a lid-only product, as it creased after seven hours of wear if I took it above the crease, and there was also some fallout over time–not as bad as a glittery, powder eyeshadow, though, and really not bad at all given just how glittery the formula was.

Bumpy Ride

NARS Bumpy Ride Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a light golden sheen. It’s a very springy shade, and it’s a less shimmery version of their well-known Orgasm. My guess is this will work well for lighter skin tones and medium complexions who want a hint of color, as it is visible but a more subtle blush on my light-medium skin tone.

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was a touch dusty but seemed to sit well on the skin. The finish became more satiny as I blended and buffed the color on my cheeks. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

13 Ivory

Make Up For Ever 13 Ivory Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. I noticed some more obvious sparkle/micro-glitter in this shade, but it didn’t look overtly glittery on the skin. It seemed so metallic that it made the cheek area appear smooth rather than emphasizing the skin’s natural texture.

The texture of the loose powder was still incredibly silky and finely-milled, despite some of the larger shimmer/sparkle in it. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage dry, and it was fully opaque with a lightly dampened brush. What I noticed was that opaque coverage was definitely achievable with dry application, it just took more product initially. I did, however, find it more blendable when I used it dry, particularly when I used it as a cheek highlighter. The color lasted for nine hours as a highlighter on my cheeks and eight hours on my lids as an eyeshadow. This shade also showed up well over a few different types of lipstick finishes (not just matte lipsticks).

12 Copper

Make Up For Ever 12 Copper Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark copper with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a metallic finish. This shade had one of the strongest finishes out of the ones I’ve tried.

The consistency was soft, silky, and finely-milled but wasn’t quite as blendable as I would have liked when used as an eyeshadow or used with a denser cheek brush; the reddish color had a tendency to stick and turn patchy as I tried to blend out the color, though the golden sheen appeared to be more even. It worked best as a more opaque eyeshadow, as it didn’t require as much blending or diffusion (just around the edges), whereas as a highlighter, it was more obvious where it wasn’t fully blended out. The color wore well for nine hours as a cheek color and eight hours as an eyeshadow. This one was better on the lips, as it was more visible, even with a more emollient lipstick underneath it.
