Christmas Kiss

Estee Lauder Christmas Kiss Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium pinky-red with fine ruby red and pink pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly.

The Hi-Lustre formula is supposed to have medium coverage, shine, and shimmer with a hydrating formula. I’m a fan of the Pure Color lipstick range, and the Hi-Lustre formula “downside” is that it tends to be closer to semi-opaque to opaque coverage rather than a true medium coverage formula. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear with a touch of tackiness, that sat well on the lips and lasted for six and a half hours. The color stained slightly, but it was faint, and it felt hydrating while worn.

ColourPop Peachy Keen Super Shock Shadow Quad ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four warm-toned neutrals. Three of the shades are ones we’ve seen before; only Kennedy is new (at least, I can’t recall that one). All four performed well, and they coordinated well with enough contrast and variety of finishes to create a few looks out of them.

Unfiltered II

NARS Unfiltered II Cheek Palette ($59.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes six shades of blushes with a mix of finishes (matte, high shimmer, and satin) and colors (pinks, peaches, and plum). I think that the shades in this palette are a little more dupable compared to Unfiltered I, and they run light to medium (though one shade is deeper) and will show up better on fair to medium complexions. Overall, the palette was pigmented, long-wearing, and fairly blendable.

Givenchy Palette Ors Audacieux Eye Shadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday quartet that features four, shimmering shades. The formula is a wet/dry one, where wet application increases the “density and brilliance.” For the most part, I did not notice significant differences between dry and damp application, except with the third one, which had the most glitter. I could see this working best with other shades in one’s stash, like a few matte shades, perhaps a black or deep brown for more contrast, as it could use more contrast for greater versatility.
