Urban Decay Chem Trail, Zap, Recharged, Solstice Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Chem Trail Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a light, champagne gold with warm undertones and a sparkly finish. It had sheer coverage that did not build-up well–the best I could get was semi-sheer–and as I built up the color, it became increasingly chunky and added uneven texture to my lids, making them appear extra wrinkly and raised. After a few blinks, the layers would start to crack. One layer of product wore well for nine hours with no fallout but two layers resulted in small chunks of the product, which can get into the eye and is more painful than regular eyeshadow.

Bobbi Brown Bellini, Uber Beige, Bond Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Bellini Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy finish with a light sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, very creamy texture that glided on without tugging on the lips, but it had enough slip that I had trouble with some of the color gathering in lip lines over time. It was comfortable to wear, as the formula was hydrating, over the five hours it lasted. Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Chella (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Margherita (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Hakuhodo G511, B512, B116, S116 Face Brushes Reviews & Photos

Hakuhodo G511 Highlighter Brush Angled ($44.00) is a small, angled face brush that’s lightly fluffy, moderately dense, and thick enough to blend and apply color, and it was designed to be used with highlighters. It is shaped a lot like the traditional contour powder product, but this is smaller than average. It is 29.10mm in length, 21.75mm in width, and 13.90mm in thickness with a total handle length of inches / centimeters. It is made out of blue squirrel and goat hair, and I’m a huge fan of mixing the two types of hair, because you get a lot of the softness of blue squirrel with a little more durability and blendability of goat hair. It is, of course, incredibly soft, silky, and smooth, and I could never feel any individual hairs against my skin.

ColourPop Jic, Lights Out, PYT, Salt Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Jic Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly, but it did pull into lip lines noticeably as it was drying down. The texture was comfortable on the lips and didn’t feel clingy (it felt more comfortable than it looked, I suppose!), and it was non-drying. This shade lasted for four hours on me. MAC Ring My Bell (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Altered Beige (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Siren Song (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Gossamer Wing (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
