Too Faced Honey Bear & I Want Candy La Cremes

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer paired with a lightly glossy finish. It had a creamy, melty consistency that’s emollient and very comfortable to wear, but it does move around a little more than your average lipstick does. It lasted four hours on me, and it was particularly hydrating while worn. Urban Decay Strip (DC, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Neutral Rose (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty So Vain (50) (P, $50.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Shiseido Crime of Passion, Poppy, Real Ruby Rouge Rouge Lipsticks

Shiseido Crime of Passion (RD311) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and very fine, golden pearl. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips with even color. The texture on this shade was slightly thicker and more emollient than other shades in the range, but it didn’t slide around or wear too quickly–but it was more moisturizing than other shades.

Viseart Orange/Violet (03) Blush Palette

Viseart Orange/Violet (01) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go). The majority of the blushes in the palettes are mostly matte, and they look very smooth on the skin–they actually seemed to hide texture and pores, which was interesting. Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.

Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night (240) Style Eye-Con. 20 Eyeshadow Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night (240) Style Eye-Con No. 20 Palette ($99.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a very large, product-packed palette housed in a bronze-hued plastic compact. Overall, the majority of the eyeshadows were soft, blendable, pigmented, and long-wearing. For a palette with this many shades (and several of them matte!), its performance was impressive. I’m not, personally, sold on the color combination and didn’t feel like it was as versatile as last year’s The Free Spirit palette. If you’re unfamiliar with the way this palette is arranged, look at the shades as columns, as each column creates a “look.”
