Ultimate Eye Collection

Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection ($65.00 for 0.71 oz.) includes two palettes that “lock” together magnetically. Each palette has six eyeshadows, and the set of palettes also came with a black liquid eyeliner and full-sized black mascara. The palette was decent, but the shades released by both brands are the kind that we have definitely seen before so if you’re already a fan of both brands, you might have palettes with these shades already.

Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set ($38.00 for 0.29 oz.) includes a lipstick, liquid lipstick, blush, and highlighting powder that come with a heart-shaped makeup bag. The bag itself is fairly small and very flat, so it was hard to use.

Tom Ford Beauty Sublimate Shade & Illuminate Cheeks

Sublimate

Tom Ford Beauty Sublimate Shade & Illuminate Cheeks ($80.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a cream highlighter and cream blush. The formula is touted as “super sheer,” and that’s what you get: incredibly sheer, almost translucent color. Both shades are sheer and barely-there with a dewy finish that never sets or dries down, and as a result, the wear was between three to four hours. Despite never setting, they didn’t feel tacky, just a little emollient to the touch, and can handle a powder being patted on top (though the dewiness went away completely). I wish they lasted longer, but as they have such short wear, it’s not a very practical product for most. I think this will be best for someone who doesn’t need their makeup to last long, has drier skin (perhaps it would last longer), and/or wants a sheerer base for their powder blushes.

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips

Impulse

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips ($60.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a lipstick duo that features a formula that is supposed to have “rich color” and “adherence” with a “velvet matte finish.” The duos are designed to have a lighter shade and a darker shade, and they can be worn alone, mixed, or as an ombre lip look. There was also a dual-ended applicator–a sponge on one end and a brush on the other–but the sponge really did not work well to apply the color, as it yielded sheer coverage and seemed to suck all the emollient qualities out of the formula and left behind a drier, almost powdery texture on the lips. The lip brush worked, but for me, the tiny applicator was harder to control and took me three to four times as long to apply compared to a traditional lip brush (which has a longer handle).

The actual formula felt like there was a powderiness to it that is not present in any of Tom Ford’s other lipstick ranges, though the formula felt lightly creamy, thin but not too thin, and smooth. Once I applied the color and actually wore it for a few minutes, I did not notice the powderiness that was there when I was initially applying the lipstick. The lighter shade in this duo wasn’t quite full coverage and settled into lip lines, while the deeper shade applied more evenly and had better coverage. The finish appeared to be more like a true cream–a noticeable shine–and did not appear “matte” until halfway through their wear.

Scintillate

Tom Ford Beauty Scintillate Shade & Illuminate Cheeks ($80.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a cream highlighter and cream blush. You get plenty of product in the compact, but the product itself is just that type of product that for someone will be essential and for many others, totally unnecessary and almost am “I don’t get it” kind of product. Both shades are sheer and barely-there with a dewy finish that never sets or dries down, and as a result, the wear was between three to four hours. The formula is, however, touted as “super sheer,” so the coverage level is as described. Despite never setting, they didn’t feel tacky, just a little emollient to the touch, and can handle a powder being patted on top (though the dewiness went away completely). I think this will be best for someone who doesn’t need their makeup to last long, has drier skin (perhaps it would last longer), and/or wants a sheerer base for their powder blushes.

I Love Brunch

LORAC I Love Brunch Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes 16 eyeshadows with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes, cool and warm-toned shades that are centered around a pastel theme. This palette will be best for someone who normally uses an eyeshadow primer (or even a white-based/cream-colored base), likes softer colors, and prefers their pigmentation to be medium and buildable rather than intensely pigmented. The formula felt comparable to LORAC’s typical Pro palettes, but these felt denser and had more substance to them, so there was less excess product kicked up in the pan, and some shades lasted longer (without primer) than is typical.
