MAC Jupiter Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage. The lipstick felt smooth with some slip, so it was comfortable to apply and did not drag. The distribution of shimmer could have been slightly better, though, and I think that some of the unevenness is camouflaged by the mid-tone nature of the shade (blended in more with my natural lip color). It wore well for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish. The majority of shades featured finer shimmer, which translated to a more foiled, reflective look, but a few had some shimmer. The wear was between three and five hours, depending on the shade, and most shades had some slip but were not slippery overall, so they were comfortable to wear but not hard to maintain. They were vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

MAC Zerocool Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, springy green with warm, yellow undertones and fine emerald green and gold pearl. I had such hopes for this shade, but it had a lot of slip, which gave it a glossier finish and made it harder to apply, as it was slightly streaky and applied unevenly. There was also color that slipped into my lip lines, which worsened over time. It had medium coverage, which did not build up well due to the amount of slip (just seemed to make the end result look streakier). The lipstick wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish.

Make Believe In Yourself

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette ($40.00 for 0.485 oz.) includes ten eyeshadows and one highlighter. housed in a circular compact with a large mirror inside. The formula is supposed to have a “silky-soft” texture and a “long-lasting finish without any fallout or chalkiness.” Across the board, the formula featured a denser powder texture, where there was no excess product kicked up in the pan and often using a patting/pushing motion with brushes was better than gently sweeping for picking up product onto a brush. There were a few that I think would work best with flat, synthetic brushes rather than anything fluffy (like Wings and Marvel).

The majority of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, frosted and metallic in finish, and blendable on the eye, though a couple ran sheerer or seemed chunkier in texture, so they required a little more finessing. The lone matte eyeshadow seemed out of place, both with respect to the tone of it (pinker) as well as the fact that it’s not going to work across all skin tones. Since the whole palette is so shimmery, I think that the one matte eyeshadow should have just been one more shimmer, as I expect anyone who would have wanted a matte eyeshadow to need to reach for more mattes than just the one presently included. The highlighter was intense but might emphasize one’s natural skin texture at medium or great coverage levels. The palette’s powders had a subtle, vanilla scent.

Estee Lauder Candy On Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with cooler undertones and a lot of white frosted shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. It had a thinner, clingier feel on the lips, though it was never uncomfortable nor was it drying (it was lightly hydrating, actually!). The color wore well for just over four and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have medium coverage with a lustrous finish. It takes the Pure Color Envy formula and adds shimmer to it with the end result varying from lightly pearlized to more frosted and near-metallic. The shimmer was finer in size, so the lipsticks did not feel gritty on the lips, and the particles didn’t migrate as the lipstick wears down. The coverage was more semi-opaque to opaque, though a lighter hand could achieve medium coverage. . It was lightly creamy with some slip that became more noticeable as the formula warmed up against the lips. The wear ranged from four to six hours and was typically hydrating. The formula featured a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.
