Kat Von D Dagger Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark grayish blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and would benefit from a second layer of product to ensure smooth, even, and opaque coverage. The texture was thin, very fluid, and spreadable but some color slipped into my lip lines–it just did not seem to apply as evenly or as flatteringly as a lot of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks have for me. The color wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly drying after five hours of wear.

MAC Faux Sure & Telling Glow Extra Dimension Blushes

Faux Sure

MAC Faux Sure Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, rusty copper with warm, red undertones and fine, gold and pink pearl. It appeared redder in the pan as well as applied on my cheeks, especially as I blended and diffused the powder, whereas when swatched, it appeared browner. The consistency was smooth, just a smidgen dry, but it remained blendable and easy to work with as a blush. It had opaque coverage that wore well for nine hours before fading.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. With MAC’s newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.

NARS Cote Basque Sheer Pop Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with fine, golden pearl. The consistency was smooth, more emollient than the traditional Multiple formula (which has a more velvety, silicone-like feel to me), so I felt like it yielded a more stained-like look applied to the cheeks.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “buildable formula that delivers sheer, high-impact color on lips and cheeks,” and it’s also said another way: “pairs vivid color with a weightless touch,” which seems to suggest that the “sheer” quality is more with respect to the feel of the product than the coverage. That being said, the coverage seems designed to be “buildable” but still “vivid.” It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was also blendable enough that I could sheer out the coverage to semi-sheer, if desired. It applied better over bare skin, but it was workable over liquid/creams, though it looked patchy over powders. It lasted for eight hours as a blush.

On the lips, it was more comfortable to wear than the original Multiple formula (the additional slip helped!), and the less velvety feel made it appear more like a lip stain. The color lasted for three hours and didn’t actually stain, though.

Kat Von D Satellite Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage in a single pass, though it was harder to get really even, opaque coverage when I tried to fill in both my upper and lower lips with the pencil. I noticed that while it had felt creamy on the very first use, the outer edge dried out a bit for the next use (even though I put the cap back on!) so I had to get through that layer before it felt creamy again. There isn’t a lot of product in the tube (most twist-up liners have similar amounts of product), so wasting any is less than ideal! The color applied with moderate unevenness, but I was able to press my lips together and minimize some of it. It started to break down after seven and a half hours of wear, and as soon as I ate, over half of it came off (not a particularly greasy meal). The upside was that the formula was lightweight and non-drying.

The Everlasting Lip Liner is supposed to have “24-hour wear” with “water-resistant wear and weightless color” that has the “ultimate pigmentation.” It was created to be paired with Kat Von D’s liquid and regular lipstick ranges but also “worn on its own.” The formula has been fairly creamy, which made it easy to line the edges of my lips, but the skinnier pencil made it less practical for really filling in the lips. I also felt like that, while creamy, some shades still skipped when I attempted to fill in my lips. The texture was more of a soft matte initially, which enabled me to press my lips together and even out some of the product before it fully dried down. It was water-resistant, and I had no trouble drinking water or coffee, but I’ve yet to try one that actually made it through a meal particularly well–they all wore substantially away from the center of the lips and turn patchy by the end of a meal. The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks tend to wear longer on me, actually. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Some were more wearable (in terms of evenness) on their own than others.

MAC Into the Pink & Just a Pinch Extra Dimension Blushes

Into the Pink

MAC Into the Pink Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with very subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. At first, it seemed like it might have a more frosted shimmer to it, but as I applied and blended out the color, it yielded that same, glowing, luminous finish that I’ve come to expect from the formula. The blush had opaque pigmentation, but the softer consistency (that wasn’t dry or dusty!) made it easy to pickup less product on my brush for less coverage as well. The blush also blended out with ease, so if I felt like I over-applied, I could correct it. This shade wore well for almost nine hours before fading.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan.

MAC Samantha Ravndahl Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium, buildable coverage–up to semi-opaque, which is in line with the Cremesheen finish formula. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being heavy, and applied evenly across the lips. There was a touch of color that pulled into my lip lines, but the glossiness of the finish made it less apparent at a normal viewing distance. It wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

This shade is a collaboration between MAC and YouTuber Samantha Ravndahl, which launches April 22nd and will only be available in Canada. There are several other shades (with other collaborators) that will release to specific regions: see full press release here. I only have the U.S. and Canadian shades!
