Morange

MAC Morange Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but there was a creaminess to the finish where some color spread into my lip lines. The finish was incredibly glossy, though, and the gloss stayed on well for five and a half hours while being hydrating.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

Even though a lot of bronzer blushes are huge, I just don’t find myself gravitating toward them–they just feel SO big on my face and I end up using fan brushes or denser, larger blush brushes. I don’t use bronzer all that much and tend to use it as a subtle contour when I have a bolder highlighter or subtle blush color on my cheeks.
I occasionally will use it along my hairline to add warmth. I like to pick up a light amount of product and gently sweep across the areas I’m applying it to.

Temptalia’s Haul

In terms of color cosmetics, there aren’t usually too many items that are on my list, since I tend to purchase those products for review and do so when they launch rather than waiting too long! I usually use the sale as an opportunity to try new skincare or repurchase something I’m almost out of.

Here’s how my hauling ended up going: I decided to skip the Tatcha Hand Cream ($38) because I still have a fairly full tube, should I finish it anytime soon, I can always use the Body Butter or one of ANY number of hand creams I have (I am most forgetful about using hand cream). I’m going to grab my Shiseido Eye & Lip Makeup Remover from Ulta (20% off is better!). I decided to skip the Herbivore Brighten and Blue Tansy masks (I have enough masks at the moment, and I’m not sure either are ideal for me based on your feedback). I also put the Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Oil on the backburner as I have their 100% Squalane oil and should finish that first (I also want to try The Ordinary, which is much cheaper). I usually end up making a few orders through the sale as I remember things or if new items come out!

Also worth mentioning, Sephora DID launch the new NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg collection today (despite having a 5/1 launch date).

Nude Bronze Light

Hourglass Nude Bronze Light Ambient Lighting Bronzer ($50.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with warm, yellowish undertones and a matte finish. The brand said this shade was mixed with “Nude Light,” which doesn’t actually exist in the Ambient Lighting Powder range, but I couldn’t detect any shimmer or sparkle–everything swirled together for a natural, matte finish (matte without being flat). The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and silky to the touch without being powdery or dusty in the pan. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which was buildable to full coverage in two layers, though it was soft enough in the pan that I could use a lighter hand and get sheerer coverage, if desired. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

The Ambient Lighting Bronzer formula is supposed have a “sheer, airy” feel (sheer as in texture) that give a “natural, sun-kissed glow” with the “illuminating effects of Ambient Lighting Powder” with “bronze pigments” that give it “buildable color.” The formula tends to be more pigmented (usually semi-opaque), but the textures are always soft enough that a less dense brush or lighter hand is an option for picking up less product and getting less coverage. I find that the bronzer formula tends to be less powdery compared to the original Ambient Lighting Powders, which is nice. The wear is typically around eight hours on me.

Kat Von D Dreamer Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, light-medium cyan blue with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It seemed to have a whiter base, which gave it a chalkier finish after it had dried down. It had good pigmentation, but it was not opaque in a single layer, so this was another shade that would benefit from a second layer of product (not normally something I find necessary with this formula!). For the type of color, it applied better than most, but there was visible streaking and “cracked” color when I smiled. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was non-drying.
