6 Frozen Turquoise

Make Up For Ever 6 Frozen Turquoise Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a cool, white base with icy lavender to teal shifting shimmer. It had a strong, nearly metallic sheen but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture as the particle size was so fine. It worked beautifully as a cheek highlighter, as it reflected light well and maintained its shift, and it also worked well along the inner tearduct to brighten the eyes. The consistency was soft, velvety, and finely-milled, which made it easy to blend out. It had sheerer, buildable coverage applied dry and more opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours on me.

The Star Lit Powders can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” with an “ultra-fine loose powder” that can be used “wet or dry to customize coverage intensity and luminosity.” While checking the weight on these, I noticed that the weight differs from shade to shade; this one had a mere 0.02 oz. while others ranged from 0.03 oz. to 0.09 oz. I also noticed that it appears the brand identifies what area you can use a shade on by listing an icon on the back of the jar in the shape of a pair of lips, an eyeball, and then a face (presumably for cheeks).

Dragon Red

Cle de Peau Dragon Red Lipstick ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, medium red with neutral undertones and a smooth sheen. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and comfortable to apply as it did not drag. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied evenly across the lips. The finish on this shade made my lips appear plumper and smoother without calling attention to my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating to wear.

The formula is supposed to have “ultra-vibrant, luminous HD color and rich lasting moisture” that has a “silk, semi-matte finish lasting for 8 hours.” Under “Key Benefits,” they repeat that it has a “long-lasting finish for up to 8 hours” and “delivers lasting moisture for up to 4 hours” (I swear, that seems like it’s switched–it would really make more sense for it to last for four hours but keep lips hydrated for longer than the color itself lasted). The consistency was lightweight, creamy with a more emollient feel as it applied that had a lightly tacky feel afterward. Color coverage varied from medium and buildable to mostly opaque with light to moderate shine. Some shades applied more smoothly across the lips and made my lips appear smoother and plumper but not all shades did so. The wear was four to six ours with some of the deeper, richer shades (like reds) wearing longer. I found the formula very hydrating and comfortable to wear. I did not notice any taste but they had a subtle, rosy scent.

Statemint

Dose of Colors Statemint Blush ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, but it had a tendency to darken and fade after initial application, so it was not a shade that showed up well on my skin tone but I suspect will be just fine on those lighter than me. The consistency was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly and smoothly to the cheeks while blending out without difficulty. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading slightly.

Coral Lipstick

All love! The only “rant” I have is that I tend to prefer a little pink in my coral so more orange-coral and red-coral doesn’t get as excited.

Road Movie

Chanel Road Movie Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent palette featuring a beige, golden copper, bluish teal, and a blackened blue. It had a murky, smoky vibe with pops of color. It was decent but for someone who wants really rich, intense pigmentation, I think they would be happier with another brand, while those who prefer more buildable, softer, and more muted smoky hues, this might appeal.
