Betty Boop Red

MAC Betty Boop Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy but not too emollient, and comfortable to wear. Though it was listed as a matte finish on the packaging, it did not read matte on me until after an hour and a half of wear. The color wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

This lipstick launches online today (2/14).

Apple of My Eye

ColourPop Apple of My Eye Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a light-medium pink and a rich, magenta purple. The two shades complemented each other well, as they could greate a nice gradient while still offering nice contrast between the two shades. Both shades were pigmented, easy to blend, and wore fairly well. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection, but ColourPop is releasing them as singles today.

Goody Two-Shoes

ColourPop Goody Two-Shoes Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a dark, charcoal gray with warmer, brown undertones and cooler pearl–it read cooler overall. The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture that adhered evenly to the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Ibiza

Kevyn Aucoin Ibiza The Neo Limelight ($58.00 for 0.74 oz.) is a mega-sized cheek palette with three shades of highlighter that form a gradient from pale gold to light lavender to lavender. When mixed together, the effect was a light-medium lavender with a subtle warmth and a luminous finish. Each shade was wide enough to be worn alone, though there’s no distinct beginning and end for the shades. The consistency of the palette was fairly smooth, soft, and blendable, while the pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to opaque. The only shade I had trouble with was the darker lavender, which was drier in feel and had buildable coverage. There was a bit of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but it did not read powdery or dry on the skin. The effect was moderate to high in shine, so the palette would work best for someone who likes a stronger highlighter/highlighting blush.

LORAC Panorama Color Source Buildable Blush ($23.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation, which was easily buildable to opaque, true-to-pan coverage with a second layer. The powder felt soft, smooth, and silky and wasn’t powdery at all. It blended out beautifully on the skin and had a luminous finish that looked glowing but not shimmery. The blush wore nicely on my skin for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

LORAC Limelight Light Source Illuminating Highlighter ($23.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light, minty green with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed to appear cooler in the pan, but the shimmer itself seemed warmer (like a pale gold) so that it appeared warmer as I blended out the color. The consistency was soft, smooth, and a touch thin, but it applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. It had a high-shine finish–definitely not a subtle highlighter–but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This was a fun highlight to work with, as the aqua hue transformed anything I paired it with. On my normal-to-dry skin, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.
