This has a similar formula to products like NARS Dual Intensity, MAC Extra Dimension, Estee Lauder Gelee, and so forth. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and very blendable without being too soft or too firm. The texture feels a little dry, but it doesn’t look dry or powdery on the skin. It doesn’t emphasize pores on my skin, though if you apply more heavily and feel like you have larger pores, then there’s enough shimmer in it that it could be a possibility. I liked that while it was very light, it didn’t have a really strong, white powdery base, so it didn’t look chalky on my skin tone (and sometimes these types of colors can), which makes it more versatile for a greater number of skin tones. I think that those with cooler undertones, the pink tone/tint in this may be more noticeable as well. The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading on me. This product also came with a mini kabuki brush, which is okay, but I did personally prefer a less dense brush for application (as well as a softer one). This is one of the better highlighters Dior has released in the last few years.

ColourPop Santos & New Lowes Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden bronze.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, rosy undertones and a pearly sheen. There’s a plum/rosy vibe I get from it that makes it appear less bronzy, especially as I blended it out (even against my warmer undertones). The texture was smooth, soft, and blendable without being too dry or too emollient. It had buildable color coverage from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how you applied it (which is how it is described). This shade wore well for ten hours before fading. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Paranoid (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop New Lowes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned berry.” It’s a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with a natural finish that wasn’t shimmery but not totally matte. The more this is blended out (and sheered out), the more it appears as a stain. The texture was smooth, thin, and a little drier compared to the more shimmery shades in the cheek color range. It was fairly blendable, but it wasn’t quite as effortless as Santos. It wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. NARS Chic (LE, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar).

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

I reviewed this previously when it was released in the Champagne Glow palette, but I had noticed (or felt) that the consistency of the powders in the palette was slightly drier compared to the permanent versions I had (of the existing two shades in the palette). I know that a lot of readers have been eagerly awaiting Pearl in powder form, so I figured I would check it out. I do think the standalone version is smoother, but the standalone version is also slightly more shimmery (just slightly, though!). The texture was still softer than the majority of the Pressed range, and worth noting, it is 0.25 oz. compared to the 0.28 oz. size of the other shades. It can emphasize pores if I am not careful with the application–the palette version was more forgiving in that aspect. On me, the highlighter wore for eight hours.

Too Faced Warm Glow Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo

Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow
Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow

Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new addition to the Candlelight Glow range (the other is Rosy Glow) in a warmer tone; Too Faced also indicates that they’ve changed the formula (“We’ve revamped our bestselling highlighter by popular demand”)–I didn’t notice that bit until writing up this review, so I’ll be looking to purchase Rosy Glow in the future as well. The formula is supposed to have sheer coverage that highlights the skin. The duo is nice; they coordinate together and both have a similar warmth, and the wear is good, while the formula is consistent with how it is described. I wish there was a little more contrast between the two, because it would make the product more versatile overall (because you could always mix to lighten the darker one); on my skin tone, they look similar on, though fairer skin tones and cooler skin tones should see a stronger difference applied.

Warm Glow (Left) is a light, golden champagne with warm undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer. The finish reads more shimmery than just a glowing, luminous one, but it isn’t frosty or metallic. It adds glow and shimmer without emphasizing pores. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to apply, while the coverage is sheer. It is buildable to semi-sheer with a few layers. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours. Smashbox Glow (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Crystal Glare (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00)(95% similar). NYX Moonbeam (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Perilune (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Albatross (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE) is darker (90% similar). The Estee Edit Snowlit (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Gypsum (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Flexitarian (LE, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Lunch Money (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Double-Gleam (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Sunlight (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Warm Glow (Right) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm, orange-y undertones and a frosted finish. The texture on this shade was a little drier compared to the left side, though not so dry that it read that way on the skin. Once blended and buffed into the skin, it also produces a strong sheen that just slightly emphasizes pores for me. This shade also lasted for eight hours before fading. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Moonlight (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Tribulation (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar).

Too Faced Sweet Peach Illuminator (P) is darker (85% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Show Gold (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe
Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($36.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized blushes–all six that exist in the Love Flush range. The palette contains $52 worth of blush, and it is a nice way to try six for less than the price of two full-sized ones. I love the concept, and I think the quality is on-par with or better than the permanent, individual pans that came out. The big takeaway is that I think the formula is better than it rates, as it primarily gets dinged for not lasting the 16-hours promised (wear is between eight and ten hours), so if getting half the stated wear-time isn’t a deal-breaker, the formula is well-worth a look, whether an individual shade or the palette. The shades were extremely consistent with the individual compacts I tested previously; I specifically tested the shades in the palette for quality and wear, but for the photos of the blushes on my face, those were taken from original reviews.

I know the most frequently asked question/made comment was with respect to the physical width/size of the pans, and they’re large enough for an average-sized blush brush to fit (I tried a Wayne Goss Blush Brush and MAC 159 Blush Brush), but even still, the reason why it works is there is enough space between each pan, so you do not have to worry about colors mixing. Also worth noting, the packaging is very long, so it is harder to store in an average-sized makeup bag.

Love Hangover is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation (more pigmented than the individual I have!) with a soft, blendable texture that was easy to apply and diffuse on the skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Justify My Love is a brightened, light-medium bubblegum pink with cool, blue undertones and a dusting of gold sparkle over a semi-matte finish.

It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency that applied well and wore for nine and a half hours on me.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) is supposed to be an exceptionally long-wearing (16 hours), pigmented, and “buttery soft” blush. It’s a nice blush, but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t last 16 hours. Some shades last eight hours, others last a little closer to ten hours–it is nice wear for powder blush generally, but you’ll find that many shades’ ratings took a hit because of the 16-hour wear claim. The blush has a soft texture that’s just firm enough not to kick up a lot of excess powder, but it’s not too firm where you can’t get good color payoff when you use it. Pigmentation varied from shade to shade and ranged from semi-opaque to totally opaque, while the blush tended to blend well on the skin with a satin to luminous finish. The compacts may be a little hard to open if you have larger fingers/hands (like me), and sometimes I felt like the pattern made it harder to get good pigmentation out of the blush if I used a more feathery brush.

This is the last of the five shades in the NYX Illuminator range. The formula is supposed to have “radiant shimmer” that gives skin a “subtle glow.” The texture of this shade was slightly dry, but it applied without a fuss on the skin and didn’t look powdery, though it did emphasize pores slightly. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage. The highlighter blended out well and lasted for six and a half hours on me.
