#002

Dior #002 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, light pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented–you really do not need much to obtain a noticeable glow!–with a smooth, blendable consistency that wasn’t powder or dusty at all. It was incredibly easy to apply, and while it the finish was nearly metallic, it did not emphasize my skin’s texture unless applied very heavily. The highlighter lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

The Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer is designed to highlight, and it’s supposed to have a “highly-concentrated formula” with a “virtually imperceptible texture.” Each shade comes with a velvet pouch and mini kabuki brush. The brush was decent, but it was dense and larger than most highlighting brushes, so it was hard to apply the product precisely with it. The formula is comparable a lot of the recent highlighting powders that are denser, smooth without being powdery, and high-shine in finish.

Makeup Geek Daredevil, Party Girl, Bachelorette Plush Lip Mattes

Makeup Geek Daredevil Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentatin one layer, but it would be buildable to opaque coverage with two layers (the consistency would get slippery, though). The texture felt very smooth, velvety, and spread across the lips with ease, but it did my lip lines no favors and appeared “cracked” around them. This shade lasted for four and a half hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and did not feel drying while worn.

The formula is supposed to be a “cross between a cream and a mousse” that is “highly pigmented” with a “soft matte” finish. The consistency has an incredibly velvety, creamy feel without being slippery or wet, so it felt very smooth going on the lips and lightweight. I liked the way it felt on the lips for an hour or so of wear, but after testing about half of the range, they did not wear down well with an uneven fade and significant color in lip lines. While traditional liquid lipstick can dry and look “cracked,” I noticed that despite feeling quite forgiving, the finish often was not as lip color settled into and separated away from lip lines. The formula wasn’t designed to dry down to a flat, matte finish, and it does not, so the transfer was similar to that of a traditional, satin-finished tube lipstick for me. On me, the liquid lipsticks have lasted between four and six hours on me. They seem mostly non-drying on but seemed more drying as I wore them, particularly if I wore two in a row, which would leave my lips feeling raw. Just a heads up, each tube contains a surprisingly small amount of product (0.06 fl. oz.) relative to a lot of popular liquid lipstick formulas (Kat Von D contains 0.22 fl. oz., Anastasia contains 0.11 fl. oz., Smashbox contains 0.13 fl. oz., Stila contains 0.10 fl. oz., MAC contains 0.17 fl. oz.).

ColourPop Steele Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a very pale pink with lavender and silver glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was not buildable, and the consistency felt drier than average so it did not blend out as easily. I had the best luck using my fingertip to blend out the color (I think the warmth of my skin helped). The color lasted for nine hours before creasing subtly.
