Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set

Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s Set ($49.00 for 1.23 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows, three blushes, travel-sized mascara, and a twist-up jumbo lip crayon. It’s a mixed bag; some are nice, some are duds, and some are somewhere in-between. It’s a lot of product for your money, so if the shades appeal to you, and you generally like Tarte’s formula and typically wear a primer, it might be worth looking at. They are more dupable shades than not, and you’ll find some shades are similar (enough) to past Tarte releases. I liked how the palettes were separate from the packaging, so you can easily ditch the exterior (with the sequins), though that’s obviously a lot of waste. They could have made this a lot slimmer by skipping the lip crayon and mascara, as that is all that is contained in the drawer!

Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette

Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette
Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette

Make Up For Ever Holiday 2015 15 Artist Shadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.90 oz.) includes fifteen of the brand’s Artist Shadows (all of which are permanent, so you can always purchase them individually or repurchase if you ever finish one). Each shade is 0.06 oz., whereas full-size is 0.08 oz., which makes the palette contain $236.25 worth of eyeshadows. Not only is a tremendous value for anyone who’s wanted to acquire more (or try for the first time) the Artist Shadows, but the palette is of excellent quality. Only two of the fifteen shades were under-performing, and only one of those two is a real miss to me. The only thing that puzzles me is that Make Up For Ever doesn’t include their matte formula in their palettes, because I think it’s quite good (overall) and certainly well-worth including for more versatility and dimension in their palettes–it is even more puzzling given that they’re a pro/artistry-driven brand, where mattes are often a go-to! Otherwise, I highly recommend and is definitely one of the best palettes I’ve tried all year.

I922 Electric Purple is a bright, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It is actually a blush (you’ll notice it labeled as “blush” on the back of the palette as well), which is how I tested it for the review. It had intense color payoff with a smooth, dense texture that was blendable but took a little more patience than your average blush to blend out. It wore well for eight and a half hours.

ME216 Electric Blue is a medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, dense, and buttery texture that applied smoothly to the skin while still blending out easily. The color started to crease after nine hours of wear. Coloured Raine Blue Magic (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #3 (LE) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Nile (LE) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

ME122 Snow is a bright white with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a buttery, dense, and smooth texture that felt part cream, part powder. The color applied well without skipping and blended out with ease. On me, it started to show signs of wear after eight and a half hours. Burberry Optic White (000) (P, $29.00) is brighter (95% similar). theBalm #11 (P, $6.50) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #2 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Violet Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set
MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. For long-time collectors, this will be your best bet between the three lipgloss sets as three of the shades are new (Narcissus is a repromote). MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Like Magic is described as a “clear gloss with silver reflects pearlized pigments.” It’s a clear gloss with good dosage of silver and pink sparkle. It adds noticeable sparkle and glossiness to the lips, and I think it’s wearable on its own, but it could also work to layer with your favorite lipstick. It wore well for three hours and had a light-medium consistency with some tackiness. MAC Pleasure Principle (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Like Venus (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Impossibly Sweet (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Be an Angel, Darling is described as a “baby pink with shimmer.” It’s a light, pastel pink with fine white shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a glossy, high-shine finish, but some of the milky pink color settled into lip lines. The shimmer helps to make it less noticeable, but it may be better over a lipstick. The gloss lasted for two hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Sugarrimmed (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Look Who's Here (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Light English Red (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Date with Violet is described as a “mid-tone mauvey violet.” It’s a soft, medium pinky-mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with some milkiness, which led to color pulling into lip lines, though it wasn’t as bad as some shades of Cremesheen Glass (but it’s there). The texture is lightweight, creamy, comfortable with a non-sticky texture. On me, the gloss lasted for two hours. MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (DC, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Pink (P, $45.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Lots of Laughs (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Narcissus is described as an “intense orchid purple.” It’s a medium-dark, pink-tinted purple with a cream finish. This shade had semi-sheer pigmentation with a creamy, lightweight consistency that was comfortable on. It doesn’t apply evenly, which is its major issue, followed by shorter wear at three hours. Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) (P, $48.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 501 Purple (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Love You Big Time (P, $10.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). YSL Pourpre Preview (16) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Nine (Watercolor) (LE) is darker, less pigmented, lower quality (85% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (DC, $28.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. All of the shades have been released before; Sugarrimmed and Just Superb are part of the current range from what I can tell. MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Sugarrimmed is described as a “milky pale pink with multi-pearlized pigments.” It’s a light, warm-toned pink with multi-colored sparkle (mostly pink and silver to my eye). It had semi-sheer color coverage with a light-medium consistency that was tacky and lasted for three hours on me. Bobbi Brown Bellini (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Amethyste (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Look Who's Here (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Be an Angel, Darling (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Happily Ever After (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Out for Glamour (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar).

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

Just Superb is described as a “neutral pink.” It’s a light-medium peachy-pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied smoothly but settled into every lip line and then some due to its milkiness. It wore for two hours on me. Anastasia Vintage (-, $16.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Sephora Rose Petal (05) (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Sensible (15) (P, $34.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Buxom Creamsicle (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar).

NYX Tres Leches (P, $5.99) is lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Artful (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Creme Anglaise is described as a “rosy mid-tone pink.” It’s a medium pink with subtle, cooler undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied fairly evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines too noticeably. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy with a mostly non-sticky feel. It wore for two and a half hours on me. Dior Ciel Rose (449) (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Ten (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Colour Saturation is described as a “deep wine.” It’s a dark, berry-red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had sheer color payoff with a lightweight consistency that was comfortable tow ear, but the gloss settled into lip lines a lot, so it may be better over a liner or lipstick if you don’t like that to occur. The color lasted for three and a half hours on me. Maybelline Amethyst Potion (045) (P, $8.99) is more muted (95% similar). Chanel Tocade (182) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar).

Bite Beauty Rewind Matte Creme Lip Crayon Set

Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set
Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set

Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes four travel-sized, twist-up lip colors housed in a red tin. I really liked Bite’s set last year, and I think this year’s is also good and works well as a stocking stuffer or more affordable gift to give. Full-sized pencils are 0.05 oz. each, and each of these is 0.031 oz., which makes the set worth $59.52. The Matte Creme Lip Crayon formula tends to be smooth and velvety in texture with good pigmentation, long- and comfortable wear. The formula has a lemony, slightly herbal, scent but no discernible taste.

Aubergine is described as an “eggplant.” It’s a medium-dark, berry-plum with hints of red and a cooler undertone paired with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, smooth consistency that was easy to apply and didn’t tug at the lip. The color wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating over time. This shade is part of the permanent range. The version in the set was actually more pigmented and less glossy, which resulted in a more muted colro overall, though they are similar. Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Claretcast (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Seduce Me (128) (DC, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Boy Gorgeous (222) (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Venom (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Liberator (P, $32.00) is more muted (90% similar). NARS No Shame (LE, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Roman (208) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Heaux (Amplified) (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Xavier (DC, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Mulberry (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Too Faced Berry Naughty (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Purple Noon (LE, $52.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Brocade (P, $35.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sugared Maple (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Estee Lauder Intriguing (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Radish (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Torte is described as a “brown-toned rose.” It’s a soft, medium-dark rosy pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth texture that applied evenly and was comfortable to wear over five hours. It was lightly hydrating. Estee Lauder Incensed (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Rosewood (P, $28.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Libre (62) (P, $37.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cafe is described as a “peachy-brown nude.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that applied without dragging. The formula seemed less forgiving than the other three, and it made my lips look drier as the lines were more apparent. I had some noticeable color settle into lip lines after two and a half hours orf wear, though the color wore fairly well for four hours in total. NARS Rosecliff (P, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Sable (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Austin (P, $35.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Desirable (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Pepper (P, $26.00) is darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Fiesta (DC, $5.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Coulis is described as a “raspberry red.” It’s a medium-dark, neutral-to-cool toned red with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage–there was a little bit of my lip freckle still coming through–but the coverage was even. This shade lasted for six hours and left behind a stain, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Mind Control (LE, $17.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Blood (DC, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Hourglass Innovator (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar).

The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Dressed to Dazzle is described as a “pale white pink shimmer.” It’s a purple-taupe-tinted clear base with gold and lavender sparkle. It’s sheer with noticeable sparkle, but the base does lighten and add a pinkish tint to my natural lip color–as it is sheer, this may look different depending on the natural coloring of your lips. The glitter doesn’t travel and didn’t have a noticeable texture over the three hours it lasted, but it is light-medium in thickness with noticeable tackiness, which may be a deal-breaker for some. I think it would be better layered over a lipstick, as there is some settling into lip lines. Guerlain Rose in Bloom (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Firefly (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bellini (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Feeling Fine (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dress the Part is described as a “pale nude pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It emphasizes lip lines quite a bit due to the more milky consistency of the gloss and lighter color. It had semi-sheer color payoff and was comfortable to wear, but it only lasted for two hours. MAC Date with Violet (LE, $20.00) is brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (DC, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Three (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Deelight is described as a “mid-tone neutral.” It’s a muted, medium pinky-plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. This has been released before, and I believe it is part of the permanent range as well. The coverage is semi-sheer, in line with the formula, with a lightweight, hydrating formula that stays on for two and a half hours. The color pulls into lip lines, though, and can look a little streaky and prone to showing “lines” if you press your lips together. MAC Beautifully Bare (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Dolly (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Double Tap (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Sweet Persuasion (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #524 (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Oasis (DC, $25.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Anything But Demure (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler, better quality (85% similar).

Deep Kiss is described as a “deep burgundy.” It’s a muted, medium-dark burgundy with neutral-t-warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage where the natural lip came through quite noticeably, but it added noticeable color as well. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. It applied surprisingly evenly for a darker shade like this (and I’m not won over by the Cremesheen formula, as it can often settle into lip lines!). The color was moderately hydrating and wore well for three hours on me. Guerlain Madame Fascine (863) (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Intrigue (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Richly Revered (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Hyper-Fabulous (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Desire (LE, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
