Make Up For Ever C503, C506, C600 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C503 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright pop of medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy finish with a light sheen. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy with noticeable slip, but applied fairly evenly overall–though not as smoothly as other shades in the Cream range. This shade wore well nearly five hours but had some color settled into lip lines, though the formula was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Courting Seduction (LE, $17.00) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Viseart Plum/Bronze (01) Blush Palette

Viseart Plum/Bronze (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.

MAC It’s a Strike Eyeshadows

MAC Gutter Gal Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “off-white grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a very light taupe with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very smooth, almost cream-like, and it yielded opaque color coverage. It was harder to apply evenly on the lid, as it tended to sheer out a bit once blended. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Anastasia Stone (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Come What Grey (LE) is darker, cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals Trench Coat (LE) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Pinch of Sage (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).
