FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours. Tuscan is an intensely pigmented blush where a little goes a long way. The powder is very silky and soft, but it is prone to kicking up excessive powder as it is just so soft. That softness does seem to help make it incredibly blendable and forgiving, which is key for something this bright and pigmented. On me, the blush managed to last for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes three palettes, plus a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. Each palette contains six eyeshadows and a face product (either a blush or bronzer).

NYX Nude ‘tude HD Blush

NYX Nude 'tude (02)  HD Blush
NYX Nude ‘tude (02) HD Blush

NYX Nude ‘tude (02) HD Blush ($6.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a meduim brown with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Bon Voyage (P, $8.00) is darker (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Days (P, $48.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay Video (P, $26.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours. Nude ‘tude is semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a really soft, silky texture that practically crumbled when a brush touched it, so there was a lot of excess powder in the pan. If you are very fair, you may find it easy to over-apply as a lot of product gets on the brush if you aren’t careful. The blush is finely-milled, though, which makes it easy to blend out on the skin, and it doesn’t look powdery on. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Makeup Palette

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette
Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette ($165.00 for 0.79 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one contour powder. My favorite products are the highlighter and contour powders, which will come as no surprise, as I have reviewed them favorably in the past as standalones. You actually get more of each product in the palette than in the individual compact, but for $65 you could purchase the Contour Book Volume II, which also contains 0.17 oz. worth of the Celestial Powder and 0.14 oz. of the Sculpting Powder (plus other standout product sin the brand’s line, like a small version of Starlight and larger sizes of the cream versions of the highlight/contour found in this palette). I don’t think the eyeshadows are worth the additional expense; the shades themselves are dupable, but the formula feels dusty, dry, and sometimes powdery and other times stiffer. They blended out better than I expected, and they lasted seven to eight hours (so not too shabby), but they were more semi-sheer to semi-opaque and prone to sheering out when applied.

According to my calculations, the palette contains a total value of $263.20 worth of product. Here’s how the value breaks down:

  • $68 worth of The Celestial Powder
  • $56 worth of The Sculpting Powder
  • $139.20 worth of The Essential Eyeshadow (going off of The Essential Eyeshadow Set price per ounce)

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek & Leopard Pressed Pigment

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “true gold.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish–pretty much just as the brand described it. The texture was smooth, creamy, and a cinch to blend out on the skin. I love that the formula can be used over foundation without disturbing your base products. The coverage is semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how much you apply initially or with what, which is in line with what the formula is supposed to be. The color was going strong after ten hours of wear. Makeup Revolution Gold Addict (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced You Light Up My Life (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar).

ColourPop Leopard Super Shock Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vivid violet blue.” It’s a meidum-dark purple with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, and it was blendable along the edges, but the texture was dry and prone to crumbling when I applied too much pressure on it. Pressed Pigments are “not intended for the eye area,” so keep that in mind 🙂 I wore it as a blush, and it lasted for nine hours. Colour Pop Liaison (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). LORAC Ultraviolet (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Urban (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Daddy (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar).
