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.

B202

Make Up For Ever B202 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is light, bubblegum pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, almost cream-like formula that was moderately dense but incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. On me, the color stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

You can view swatches of all of the blushes, all of the highlighters, and all of the sculpting powders in the Swatch Gallery.
