bareMinerals Perfect Storm Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Perfect Storm Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Cumulus and Tempest. This duo launches in October, and it’s touted as a solid eyeshadow with SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that is “creamy, silky smooth” with “seamless blendability” and “stay-true color” that is long-wearing when worn alone without creasing or budging. When worn alone, I was able to wear several of the new duos for 10 hours without an eyeshadow primer. For more details on packaging, please read my original review.

Guerlain Garconne Rouge G Lipstick

From Guerlain’s fall collection, we have an “intense, daringly bold, real red” called Garconne (25) ($47.00 for 0.12 oz.). It was chosen for its timelessness as a color. It’s a rich, luxurious shade of red–there is depth to it, so it’s not too bright but it’s not brown-toned red. There is a subtle cool undertone running through this blue-based red, but it isn’t too strong. Blue-based lipsticks make teeth appear whiter, while orange-based lipsticks cause teeth to look yellower.

NARS Rue de Rivoli Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as “metallic forest green.” It’s a yellowed green over a blackened base with a golden sheen and shimmer. The pigmentation is good but not fully opaque. It’s most similar to Urban Decay Mildew but it is a bit brighter. You can see more green eyeliners to compare.

MAC Equilibrium Blush Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Equilibrium Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bronze” with a satin finish. It’s a soft tan with a hint of orange in the undertone and a pale, golden sheen. It is a touch warmer and less ruddy compared to MAC Pressed Amber, but it is nowhere near as orange or as intense as MAC Springshine. When sheered out, it has some similarity to Guerlain Sublime Radiant Powder.

MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich red brown.” It’s a red-toned brown with a hint of warmth, and while it’s opaque and nicely pigmented, it’s not as dark as it looks in the pan. There is a soft, frosted finish that’s not too heavy-handed. The color is similar to MAC Brown Script.
