Viseart Bijoux Royal (09) Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Bijoux Royal (09) Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a set of 12 shimmery eyeshadows in muted jewel tones. The quality was consistent across all of the shades; they were pigmented, blendable, soft without being too powdery, and easy to work with. Some shades were closer to perfection than others, but there weren’t any misses or even so-so shades in the palette. If you’re unfamiliar with Viseart, their palettes were designed to work with each other, so for someone who likes a mix of mattes and shimmers, it is designed to be used with one of Viseart’s all-matte palettes. It’s a beautiful palette that is just dreamy to use as it blends out with little to no effort while still maintaining rich, true-to-pan color.

Smashbox Cognac, LA Sunset, Get Fired Be Legendary Lipsticks

Smashbox Cognac Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish-plum with fine copper pearl. The consistency was lightly creamy, smooth, and comfortable to wear as it didn’t cling nor did it feather. It had very good pigmentation that distributed evenly and smoothly across the lips. On me, this shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Bobbi Brown Downtown Plum (P, $35.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Little Lovely, Clear Water, Water Deities Lipglasses

MAC Little Lovely Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a light yellow with warm undertones and iridescent pink and gold shimmer. It looked almost like it had a duochrome shift on the lips, but it was hard to tell (and even harder to capture!). This shade had semi-sheer coverage, and the color settled into lip lines a lot. The texture was comfortable to wear, though a bit thicker and tackier as you’d expect from the formula, but it was hydrating over the four hours it lasted. Dior Gold Rain (164) (LE, $29.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC On Cue (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Rouge Charnel (56) Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-tinted red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. There was very subtle pearl that gave it a light shine. The texture was very smooth, velvety, and thin without being clingy. The lipstick sat well on the lips without emphasizing imperfections, and it lasted for over six hours. It started to feel drying after six hours of wear on me.

Make Up For Ever M102, M200, M201 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M102 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, plum-berry with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the better shades in the Matte finish; richly pigmented paired with a lightweight, smooth, and velvety consistency that applied easily. The texture didn’t appear dry or unforgiving on the lips, but it didn’t have a strong sheen (though it is not the ultra matte finish of some of the popular liquid lipstick formulas). This shade wore well for over six hours, left behind a fuchsia stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Scrooge (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $17.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop More Better (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar).
