Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palettes for Summer 2017

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette for Summer 2017
Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette for Summer 2017

Inspired by Huda Kattan’s hack of layering oil with powder highlighter to amplify her glow, this palette is packed with two different textures. The Melted Strobe, a pearlescent creamy formula, is enriched with karite butter for a flawless, lit-from-within canvas to layer on powders. The three, light-catching pressed pearls are staggered in complimentary tones to give you sculpted, 3D radiance. With effortless blendability and layering power, this palette lets you build and sculpt your highlight to a desired level of radiance—from subtle, natural radiance to an all-over glow.

Bobbi Brown Island Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a dewy finish on the skin, as the formula never dried down. While the finish was always luminous, it had terrible wear–on its own, it had slid around noticeably on my skin after four hours of wear. When I tried it over my liquid foundation, it moved my base around a ton and created a lot of patchiness within two hours of wear. It had sheer coverage, and the pearl in this particular shade made it look spectacular but just required so much maintenance, care, and touch-ups.

It’s supposed to be a “creamy, lightweight highlighter” with “sheer” coverage that gives “an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day.” The formula was very emollient with a lot of slip and wetness; it never dried down and always felt slick on the skin. All of the shades I tried were sheer, and they were not buildable, so several shades ended up looking very similar on my skin tone (but may look more or less different on other skin tones/undertones). The emollient feel of the formula did not play well with products (primers, cream/powder/liquid foundations or blushes).

Thanks for Karen for today's question!

How do you decide what eye makeup to wear?

It usually is based on what I need to test next! If I have a few palettes that I’m testing, then I might coordinate with whatever else I’m testing/wearing or try to make both eyes “match” in a general sense, like neutrals on both eyes rather than bold blues on one and golds on the other!

Noir Petrole (812)

Chanel Noir Petrole (812) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, smoky brown with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there red pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage. The consistency was smooth, thin but not too thin, and dried down quickly. I found it hard to blend the color out evenly and felt like it was best used as a base rather than a standalone eyeshadow as it was hard to get it to appear even at less than opaque coverage. It was still going strong after twelve hours of wear.

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” There are eight shades (view swatches) released with one (Obscur) being limited edition. Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.
