1999

Urban Decay

Review posted 2 years ago

1999 is a lighter, slightly redder purple than Rockstar, plus an added glitter. It's a great color and looks awesome for a little while, but even with primer and a shadow set this stuff migrates almost immediately on my eyes. If you don't have oily eyelids like I do you'll probably have better luck with this than me.

Stash

Urban Decay

Review posted 2 years ago

Stash is an amazing dark khaki green with a slight gold shimmer, it goes on so smoothly and blends well on application but once it's dried it sticks! For me, green eyed and pale, it's a great alternative to brown eyeliner which always tends to make me look like I've been crying.

Flair

NARS

Review posted 2 years ago

I really wanted to like this. The color is an absolutely gorgeous and rich pomegranate red, but Flair is by no means a sheer lipstick. It's most definitely opaque on my lips and trends towards extremely dry (which is consistent with my other NARS lipsticks). I don't wear it often because it requires exfoliation and a heavy slathering of Carmex beforehand, but when I do it looks amazing.

Sunny Seoul

MAC

Review posted 2 years ago

This is my go-to light pink, Sunny Seoul is a little shimmery and definitely on the sheer side so it's a great choice for easy color. Because of the shimmer it can go on unevenly especially if your lips are dry. For some reason on my skintone this reads slightly blue but not too bright, where Pink Pearl Pop was super neon, so I definitely like this one better.

Superb

MAC

Review posted 2 years ago

This is a gorgeous warm highlighting powder, I had been a proponent of NARS Copacabana cream highlighter but since I found Superb the Copa has definitely gotten less use. It does emphasize pores but I think that's a hazard of all shimmery highlighters in general, rather than a specific drawback of this product.

Haute Altitude

MAC

Review posted 2 years ago

This is a gorgeous neutral/slightly cool medium-ish pink. I say medium-ish because on fair skin it's slightly darker than my natural lipcolor, but for darker and richer skin tones it would definitely be light. Good coverage, not sticky at all, and just enough blue tinge to make my teeth look extra white. I have to mention also, I bought this on a whim in store having not been much of a lipstick person before, and it set me on a MAC lipstick bender like no other. I love it!
