Summer Solstice

Huda Beauty Summer Solstice 3D Highlighter Palette ($45.00 for 1.10 oz.) includes a cream highlighter and three powder highlighters. The cream formula is described as a “pearlescent creamy formula” that will create a “flawless, lit-from-within canvas” and is ideal for layering with powders, though it can also be used “on its own for [a] dewy and natural” effect. The powder highlighters can be used alone or together and are merely described as “light-catching.

I think the brand altered the cream highlighter formula compared to the original two that launched earlier this year, as the shade included in this palette was creamier and thinner, not nearly as dense or as difficult to blend out. The powder highlighters remained as a moderately dense formula with moderate to intense shine. The three powder highlighters were buildable in coverage as two shades were semi-opaque (which I suspect some will prefer).

ColourPop Fem Rosa Her Pressed Powder Cheek Palette ($15.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer housed in a slim, cardboard palette. All three shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and fairly easy to use, though the blush was a bit harder to blend out compared to the other two (but not a challenge). I suspect that the shades themselves will not appeal to all, and the highlighter is certainly a color we have seen often enough that you may have a dupe already!

P.S. — Yes, mine arrived broken, but there was no sign of damage on the box nor was it improperly packed, so I’m not sure what happened!

NARS Angel Pride Cheek Palette ($59.00) includes four limited edition blushes (Angel Pride I through IV) along with permanent shades Hot Sand (blush) and Laguna (bronzer). The palette itself contained quite a bit of product, so there’s no worry about it not being value-packed. My concern was that the texture of the palette throughout felt stiffer, thinner, and drier compared to most of NARS’ standalone powder blushes/bronzers. All but one shade (Angel Pride III) applied fairly well to my cheeks and were not difficult to blend out, but I was expecting a more refined texture from NARS.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow Set ($78.00 for 0.80 oz.) includes a bronzer and blush housed in side-by-side pans. Per the brand, it includes a “natural bronze hue” while the blush adds a “limitless glow.” The two worked well together, but the bronzer is quite light and was subtle on my skintone so this might be more suitable for lighter complexions if wanting to use the bronzer as a bronzer. (I liked the bronzer as a soft highlighter, which would work on light to medium skin tones.) The duo was lovely overall, but I wish the brand thought to include a deeper version or had gone with a more medium-hued bronzer that might work for more complexions. There was a brush included, which was serviceable but nothing noteworthy and not something I’d use as it was somewhat scratchy and prone to shedding.

NARS Bord de Plage Fall 2017 Highlighting & Bronzing Palette

Bord de Plage

NARS Bord de Plage Highlighting & Bronzing Palette ($59.00 for 0.66 oz.) contains four highlighters and two bronzers. If you’re familiar with spring’s Banc de Sable, then this palette might seem familiar; it has a similar formula and includes one shade from it as well (Rivage). The two bronzers–Laguna and Casino–are still available individually in the Sun Wash formula. The consistency of both the highlighters and bronzers is firmer in the pan with a smoother consistency that doesn’t kickup excess product in the pan but works better with a denser brush. The Sun Wash bronzer formula is designed to be sheerer, so they will work best for someone who wants a buildable bronzer. The highlighters can be used wet or dry with wet (well, damp) application yielding a stronger sheen and slightly more pigmented, depending on the shade. They are entirely usable dry, though, as they’re more pigmented dry than described.

It’s currently a Nordstrom exclusive but will be available August 4th everywhere else.

Zoeva Basic Moment Cheek Palette ($16.80 for 0.39 oz.) includes three cheek products–a contour powder, blush, and highlighter–in a slim, cardboard palette. The powders are supposed to be “incredibly pigmented.” The highlighter was the “miss” in the palette, as it was drier in texture and had sheerer coverage, while the blush and contour powders were pigmented and blendable.
