Save the Queen

NARS Save the Queen Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly on the lips in a single coat. The texture was lightweight, thin but not watery, and so fluid that I had to be careful about over-applying product in the corners of my lips. This shade wore really well for a solid five hours, but it started to transfer and fade as soon as I took a sip of water, so it only lasted two more hours after that. The formula felt non-drying to me.

The new formula is described as “liquefied pigments with infinite matte color saturation for lasting, weightless wear.” It’s supposed to have “full coverage in one swipe” that “dries down instantly” for “smudge-resistant, carefree wear.” The formula has a very fluid consistency that is thin, smooth, but not at all watery, and the majority of shades were nearly opaque or opaque in a single layer. The dry down started quickly but was forgiving as I maneuvered around the edges of the lips but remained a bit tacky when I pressed my lips together for over a half hour later, though as long as I did not press my lips together until five minutes post-application, the color did not lift. I have found the wear to be comfortable so far–non-drying–but not the longest-wearing nor the most budge-proof in liquid lipstick, as just sipping water, tea, or coffee caused color to transfer onto my cups. There was plenty of coverage, so it still lasted through drinking but did start to break down noticeably during a meal. Even just touching the color after a half hour of wearing it yielded color on my fingertips. The formula had a soft, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Russian Red

MAC Russian Red Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that applied evenly across the lips and never tugged during application. The consistency was lightweight, just creamy enough to glide on but not enough to slide around while worn. This shade lasted for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Identity

Pérsona Identity Eyeshadow Palette Review ($32.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows (each is 0.04 oz.) housed in a slim, cardboard palette. The brand is newer and only has only one product (this one!) available, and it is currently out of stock but a restock is coming soon. The brand described the formula as “highly pigmented” (but then also listed “buildable coverage,” which is my favorite contradiction but the brand’s swatches show opaque coverage, so that’s what I will hold it to). It’s an excellent eyeshadow palette for someone who likes slightly muted neutrals that are semi-opaque to opaque, long-wearing (around eight hours of wear), and very blendable. The shimmery shades had a tendency to “melt” on the lid, which made them more flattering on the lid and apply more seamlessly, while the mattes were easy to use. It is a little heavy on the mid-tones, so it may not work for all skin tones; I would love to see the brand release more curated palettes like these, though.

Skincare

It’s confusing. There’s a lot of trial and error. When you find skincare products that work, it feels so good and makes life (skin) better… but trying to get there? It can be a nightmare of a ride!
There’s also a ton of puffery in skincare, and you have to invest time to research and get to know ingredients if you want to buy efficacious products. You also have to know when and how to apply what and where!
