#003

Dior #003 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. Of the four shades in the range, this one had more noticeble shimmer and sheen on the skin, and it emphasized my skin’s natural texture a bit even at medium coverage. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was easy to blend out and diffuse for a softer effect. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

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.

Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks Photos & Swatches

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a new, permanent formula that launches January 19th on Urban Decay’s website. The formula will be available in 30 shades, and I have 25 of those shades swatched (apologies, I do not have the other five!). I’ll try to get at least one set of reviews up before the 19th, but the majority will come after that as liquid lipsticks typically tend to take awhile to test (only one or two a day).

MAC Uniformly Fabulous Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a blackened purple with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not opaque, in a single layer. The texture was smooth, thinner but not watery, and spread easily across the lips for even coverage. It dried down and did not appear “cracked” when I smiled. This shade wore well for eight hours but was drying.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

The one product I really love are their Cheek Pops, but I haven’t loved much else (eyeshadow/lip products) in the same vein. I like their skincare, and I think it’s effective without being too pricey.
