NARS Despair Cheek Palette

NARS Despair Cheek Palette
NARS Despair Cheek Palette

NARS Despair Cheek Palette ($65.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes four blushes (three new, one part of the permanent line) and a travel-sized ITA kabuki brush. The palette contains $90 worth of blush, so it is a good deal for those who enjoy NARS’ blush formulas, and what’s nice is that three are totally new (though not without their dupes, of course!). I’m not a fan of the ITA in any shape or form, let alone the travel-sized version, which is just rougher and scratchier than the full-size. NARS’ blush palettes like this one seem bulkier than they need to be, but it should still travel well.

Nico is a light beige with a satin shimmer. It had good color coverage with a lightly powdery texture, but it was very smooth and blendable on the skin. This doesn’t show up much on me; it’s more like a very, very subtle highlighter on my skin tone, and I’m not sure if it’ll work at all on deeper skin tones, but it may be something you could mix with one of the other shades to lighten then. On me, it lasted for seven hours. This is part of the permanent range. By Terry Light & Tan Vibes #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Star! (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Soft & Gentle (P, $33.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Paloma Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Savage is a medium, coral-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly dusty, thinner texture that applied without too much trouble, but it could have been easier to blend out on the skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading along the edges. MAC Painted Canyon (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Fruit Stand (DC, $8.00) is cooler (95% similar). KIKO 107 Tomato (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Never Been Kissed (LE, $8.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Chanel Duo N. 02 (Bottom) (LE, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Sid (Shade) (P, ) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Scorching (P, ) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). NARS Boys Don't Cry (LE, $41.00) is brighter, more pigmented, better quality (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Blush) (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Viseart Coral #2 (P, ) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Burnt Pepper (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Esoteric is a soft, medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and fine gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a very easily blended texture, though it was noticeable dusty and kicked-up excess in the pan. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Style Cast (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Milani Coral Beams #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, more muted (95% similar). NARS Jubilation (Right) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NYX Synthetica (P, $7.99) is darker (90% similar). MAC Bright Response (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Honey Jasmine (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Becca Tigerlily (P, $34.00) is darker (90% similar).

Sephora Minnie's Inner Glow (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Fresh Honey (LE, $27.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Ferocious is a muted, medium-dark plum with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture–it was the best shade in the palette–that lasted for eight hours on the skin. Tom Ford Beauty Sublimate (Shade) (LE, ) is less shimmery, less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). theBalm Pinstripe (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, glossier (90% similar). MAC Sweet Samba (LE, $27.00) is warmer (90% similar). IT Cosmetics Radiant in Rose (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Becca Afterglow Cheek Palette

Becca Afterglow Palette
Becca Afterglow Palette

Becca Afterglow Palette ($39.50 for 0.26 oz.) is a cheek palette that features three of the brand’s pressed highlighters and two of their blushes. I think it’s a great concept, and it is a nice way to try their famous cheek products, but I do wish the pans were on the larger side; they are the size of your typical eyeshadow (the palette itself is the same size as Becca’s eyeshadow palettes), like MAC, Urban Decay, etc. There is a little space between each pan, so it is possible to use some blush brushes without issue, but it’s something to consider if you tend to use medium or large-sized blush brushes. If you use a highlight brush to apply the pressed highlighters, I think you’ll be just fine, though. The quality of the palette’s contents is fairly comparable to the standalone versions, but I noticed all five seemed ever-so-slightly drier here, as if there was less binder, which actually made the highlighters more forgiving on the skin (Becca’s highlighters have a fine line between gorgeous glow and pore-emphasizing). This palette contains $20.36 worth of highlighters and $17.92 worth of blush for a total value of $38.28, so you’re paying just over a $1 for the “for the price of about one, I get to try five” point of view. (Becca’s highlighters cost $38 each, while the blush comes in at $32 a pop). This particular palette is VERY warm-toned, and I wish they had done a cooler-toned option or else mixed up the shades more to make it more versatile across skin tones. If I could have chosen the shades (assuming only one edition), I would have gone for Pearl (yes, creating a pressed version just for the palette!), Moonstone, Blushed Copper, Hyacinth, and Nightingale–which is really proof that Becca needs to consider adding cooler and more neutral-toned shades into the ranges.

Moonstone is a pale, golden champagne with warm undertones and a luminous shimmer. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture–it was a little drier than my full-size version–that gives the skin a lovely glow. It wore well for eight hours. NYX Crystal Glare (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is darker (95% similar).

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

Rose Gold is a soft, light-medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty, but blendable, consistency that sat well on the skin. The shimmer seemed a little larger in the palette than in my full-size version. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Parasol (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

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

Topaz is a medium, bronzy brown with warm, yellow undertones and a strong, golden sheen. The version in the palette is noticeably lighter–more subdued–than my standalone compact, which was surprising. The consistency was still quite smooth, blendable, and illuminating on the skin, though, and it didn’t seem less pigmented, just lighter in overall color–not as an intense. Unless applying more heavily, they still looked quite similar applied. This shade wore for eight hours on me. Anastasia Golden Bronze (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight (P, $52.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Sunlight (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Mimosa (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Wild Honey is a soft, medium brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture–it seemed more pigmented than my individual (though Becca’s blushes are supposed to be buildable, actually)! This shade wore well for eight hours on me. KIKO 100 Cookie (P, $12.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Kinky (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Flowerchild is a pop of light-medium pink with warm undertones and fine, golden shimmer.

NARS Vengeful Dual-Intensity Blush Duo

NARS Vengeful Dual-Intensity Blush
NARS Vengeful Dual-Intensity Blush

NARS Vengeful Dual-Intensity Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a highlighter and blush shade in the wet/dry Dual Intensity formula. I like this formula, but the ratings may make it appear less desirable, which is a result of NARS claiming that it is more intense dry and “translucent” applied wet–the complete opposite of reality. (Even funnier, this isn’t how the eyeshadow version of the formula is described!) I think if you tend to like this type of wet/dry formula, it’s a formula worth considering. This duo gave me a very fall-into-holiday vibe, as you have the rustiness of the blush shade that represents fall, while the more traditional shimmering gold screams holiday.

Vengeful (Left) is described as a “white-gold highlight.” It’s a light-medium, golden beige with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. Applied dry, it had good pigmentation with a fine, shimmer-sheen finish, while damp application yielded slightly more intense pigmentation and a more frosted finish. The damp application just barely emphasizes pores, but I didn’t have any issues with pores becoming more noticeable when I used it dry. The color lasted for eight hours dry, nine hours damp. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Burberry Gold Glow No. 01 (LE, $68.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 13 Ivory (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Lunch Money (P, $8.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Frenzy (Left) (P, ) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Vengeful (Right) is described as a “shimmering brick-red.” It’s a medium-dark, subtly bright copper-red with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had intense color coverage applied wet or dry, though it was deeper and richer when applied damp. The finish went from a softly luminous one to decidedly luminous as the application went from dry to damp. The texture was soft, smooth, and fairly blendable, but it was easier to blend out when dry. It wore well for eight and a half hours dry, nine and a half hours damp. MAC Burnt Pepper (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). MAC Hidden Treasure (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). NARS Almeria (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Cherry Nectar (P, $49.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Realm of the Senses #2 (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar).

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eyes & Blush Palette

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette
Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette

Guerlain Ors et Merveilles Eye & Blush Palette ($90.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes five eyeshadows housed in the top tier and then four blushes hidden beneath it in the lower tier. I’m not a fan of the blush formula they use in these tiered palettes, and I’m even less of a fan of the fact that the pans are tiny (even the “large” ones)–an eye brush just comfortably fits in the smallest pans, so you can imagine what a pain it is to dip a blush brush just into one shade (better to think of them as duos or even a single shade, perhaps). The blush formula is on the drier, dustier side and has lesser color payoff, though it is somewhat buildable. I like the eyeshadow formula a lot more, but the colors are dupable, typical for holiday (not really a bad thing, but it’s less tempting for some), and even more, more similar than not to last year’s holiday palette as well. That being said, the eyeshadows weren’t good enough to make up for the subpar blush performance this year.

Ors et Merveilles #1 is a medium-dark brown with a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wore well for eight hours. bareMinerals Regal (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

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

Ors et Merveilles #2 is a deep taupe brown with warm undertones but a cooler overtone and subtle violet shimmer (that was a little surprise!). The texture was really smooth and buttery, so it applied easily and had intense color payoff. This shade wore for eight and a half hours before fading. Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum (Right) (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Patine (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Ors et Merveilles #4 is a light-medium yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted, sparkly finish. It had so-so color payoff, and the texture was dry, which resulted in sheerer coverage and some fall out during application. It wore for seven and a half hours with some fall out.

Ors et Merveilles #5 is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (it’s a bit better than it appears in the swatch, as it is quite close to my skin tone, I think it looks almost misleadingly sheer in the photo) with a slightly firmer texture. It lasted for eight hours. Colour Pop Party Girl (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 5 (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Ors et Merveilles #8 is a medium pink with warm undertones and lighter pink shimmer. It had sheer color payoff with a dusty, thin texture that tended to sheer out so it was hard to build-up the color during application. The color faded after seven hours of wear.

Ors et Merveilles #9 is a pop of medium, orange-coral with gold sparkle and shimmer. The texture was noticeably dry to the point where the powder didn’t feel like it was binding together, so it sheered out and looked a little textured on the skin (the shimmers/sparkles separate from the base). On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours. Clinique Peach Pop (02) (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Love Lust (Discontinued) (DC, $60.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Fox (P, $8.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Set

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set
Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set ($42.00 for 0.38 oz.) includes one full-size and seven miniature-sized Studded Kiss Lipstick. The full-sized shade is also the only limited edition/exclusive shade, as the other seven are part of the permanent range. I think that the miniature-sized versions perform better than the original version I tested in the formula, BUT the full-sized versions seem to be better than these minis (e.g. Coven, Halo, and Nayeon are under-performing relative to the full-sized versions I have, but Coven here performed better than the original Coven I tested–I have three now).

Coven is described as a “matte lavender.” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that had a drier, firmer consistency so it tugged somewhat when applied, though the version in this set is much less dry compared to the original version I have from when the Studded Kiss range launched. It lasted for five hours but faded unevenly from the center of the mouth. It was drying over time. NYX Lavender (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Coven (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Courting Seduction (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Dior Cloudy Matte (380) (LE, $35.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Smashbox Fairplay (P, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Noble is described as a “matte petal pink nude.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-pink with a mostly matte finish. The texture was just barely creamy enough not to pull at the lips too much during application, but the texture was extremely unforgiving and clung to every imperfection on my lips (and I had exfoliated recently!). It had mostly opaque color payoff, which lasted for four hours and was drying over time. Kat Von D Muneca (P, $20.00) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Dior Tender Matte (340) (LE, $35.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Maybelline Beige Babe (P, $7.99) is cooler (95% similar). Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is darker (90% similar).

Tarte Pillowtalk (P, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Child Star (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

NYX Shy (P, $6.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Halo is described as a “neon clementine.” It’s a bright, tangerine orange with warm undertones and a healthy dose of fine, gold shimmer that gives it a matte frost finish. The texture was creamy but noticeably less creamy compared to the full-sized version that released just a month or two ago. It also seemed to have a lot more shimmer in it, so the frosted finish was more apparent when applied. The color wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Timanfaya (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D A-Go-Go (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Geraldine (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, glossier (85% similar).

Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sexer is described as an “iridescent fluorescent pink.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with iridescent violet micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it was less pigmented than the last version of this shade I tried. The texture was stiffer but not painfully dry. It lasted for nine hours before wearing down and was lightly drying.
MAC Dance Off, Pants Off (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). MAC Pink Poodle (DC, $17.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Ionized Iris (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Pink, You Think? (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

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

Gold Blooded is described as a “red with subtle gold shimmer.” It’s a bright, medium red with warm undertones and subtle gold sparkle. The gold sparkle really doesn’t translate much in the finished result, though it is there if you look closely. The texture was moderately creamy with a velvety, fairly smooth feel that was thicker on the lips but didn’t slide around. It wore well for seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me. Bite Beauty Rosehip (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nikita (Left) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar).

Bachelorette is described as a “matte reddish fuchsia.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky-red with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a texture that didn’t tug but could have been a little easier to apply if it had been creamier. The color lasted for six hours and was lightly drying over time. Chanel La Petillante (49) (LE, $37.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Nutcracker Rouge (LE, $17.00) is more muted (95% similar).

Wolvesmouth is described as a “metallic berry.” It’s a plummy red with warm undertones and fine plum and violet shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was somewhat buildable. The texture was light-medium in thickness and tended to emphasize lip lines a bit. I could feel the texture of the sparkle/shimmer in this one while applying. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was slightly drying. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop 3-Way (LE, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Nayeon is described as a “pitch black with gunmetal shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark black with silver sparkle and a soft shine. The version included in the set was a lot more slippery compared to the full-sized version that I have, which applied more evenly and lasted longer. When I tested this particular version, it lasted for four hours but I could never keep it looking even. MAC Hautecore (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar).

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a blue-hued quad that runs on the more muted/subtler side, so it may be an option for “wearable” blues if the brighter blues aren’t your wheelhouse. I wish the first shade was more pigmented, but the four shades work well together. I think the blendability of the products was the high point, while pigmentation levels were the low point.

Tisse Jazz #1 is a soft, muted medium blue with a soft, frosted shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a soft, silky texture, but it was dusty and prone to sheering out. It lasted for eight hours on me. L'Oreal Infinite Sky (P, $7.99) is darker (90% similar). MAC Dimensional Blue (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Milani Bella Sky (08) (P, $4.49) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Seashore Frosts (LE, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Tisse Jazz #2 is a bright, silvery white with a metallic sheen. It had so-so color payoff with a very smooth, finely-milled texture. The color wore well for eight hours before fading.
