I usually dab a wee bit wherever I’m trying to spot conceal and then use my foundation brush (usually a Real Techniques Expert Face brush) and gently tap against my skin so I don’t lose too much cover but can blur the edges. I sometimes use a synthetic, cream eyeshadow brush (small, a little fluffy) to diffuse the edges of an area.

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Saffron Sun Bronzer ($65.00 for 0.42 oz.) is light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that was easy to work with.

It’s a new shade in the Victoria Beckham collaboration (which was partially brought back recently). It’s lighter and more golden-toned compared to Java Sun from the initial release, but it performed similarly. The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and silky without being so soft that it turned dusty or powdery in the pan. The powder applied evenly to bare skin, blended out easily, and was soft enough that it could be used with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage as well. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Coral Gypsophila

Givenchy Coral Gypsophila Le Rouge ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a shiny, cream finish. It was richly pigmented with nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across the lips.

The Le Rouge formula is supposed to have “intense color” and a “semi-matte finish” in “one stroke.” I’ve been a fan of the Le Rouge formula for its high coverage, natural finish, and comfortable wear, and this summer’s limited edition shade was no exception. The lipstick was creamy, smooth, and lightweight with enough slip to glide on nicely but not so much that it slid around while worn. This shade wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Kat Von D Swanly Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a very light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented in a single stroke, though it ended up being more challenging to get the same, full coverage results when applied all over the lips. When I tried lining just the edges, it went better but the edges looked rougher, almost ragged. The consistency was lightly creamy and smooth, and the liner only tugged somewhat on the lips (more due to how skinny the liner was, I’d say). It did not go on evenly, but I was able to lightly press my lips together to blend the color out, which worked quite well for evening out the majority of the product. The color pulled away at some of my lip lines and appeared “cracked.” It wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating by that point.

The Everlasting Lip Liner is supposed to have “24-hour wear” with “water-resistant wear and weightless color” that has the “ultimate pigmentation.” It was created to be paired with Kat Von D’s liquid and regular lipstick ranges but also “worn on its own.” The formula has been fairly creamy, which made it easy to line the edges of my lips, but the skinnier pencil made it less practical for really filling in the lips. I also felt like that, while creamy, some shades still skipped when I attempted to fill in my lips. The texture was more of a soft matte initially, which enabled me to press my lips together and even out some of the product before it fully dried down. It was water-resistant, and I had no trouble drinking water or coffee, but I’ve yet to try one that actually made it through a meal particularly well–they all wore substantially away from the center of the lips and turn patchy by the end of a meal. The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks tend to wear longer on me, actually. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Some were more wearable (in terms of evenness) on their own than others.
