Slow Burn

Marc Jacobs Beauty Slow Burn Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium-dark, rosy mauve with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture had a light-medium consistency that spread well across the lips but did not feel too thin or too clingy on. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating over time.

The formula is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and have full coverage. If you like the idea of liquid lipstick but prefer more of a satin finish and something more forgiving on the lips, then this formula is going to be more suitable for you. If you prefer a flat, matte finish that’s transfer-proof, then this formula will not meet your needs. It is, literally, a liquid version of lipstick–it feels like a lightweight lipstick with light to moderate slip that lasts four to six hours.

Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes 10 eyeshadows in deeper, jewel-toned shades with a few that are supposed to have a duochrome shift. The palette is limited edition and exclusive to Sephora, and it should arrive online on December 20th and hit stores by January 27th.

A few notes: Backfire is actually completely different than the permanent version; I swatched mine side-by-side, and the single I have is a cooler, more violet purple, whereas the one in the palette is warmer and more of a plum. Fringe seemed a bit richer in depth compared to the version in the Electric Palette. Lounge was similar in tone but the base wasn’t quite as deep, so it appeared lighter and somewhat greener overall. While Supersonic is not quite the same as Sonic, they are similar.

Golden Hour

Smashbox Golden Hour Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a warm, gold and plum-themed color scheme across eight shades. What I liked about this palette was that each well was large enough for regular eyeshadow brushes, and there was enough product across each that nothing felt skimpy. It actually is a more realistic amount of product, where one can finish and work through it, particularly for those of us with less modest stashes!

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. The eyeshadows in this palette had good to great pigmentation, softer, slightly dustier textures that were blendable but a couple shades were more prone to sheering out without a primer underneath. It did seem like a formula that I would not wear without a primer, but it was workable on bare skin. The wear was between seven and eight hours, depending on the shade, which is about average for me. The biggest issue I had when I worked without a primer was just that the formula was more prone to fallout during the application.

The palette should release officially on December 7th.

Make Up For Ever

The rant? No names!! I need names! I can’t remember numbers at all as product names. Otherwise, I love their more streamlined product ranges (one type of eyeshadow, divided into finishes, for example) that offer lots of shade variety. I also like that their base products are more inclusive than the average brand.
