Coral Me Maybe

Catrice Coral Me Maybe Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a pop of light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, flecks of gold shimmer strewn on top of a more matte finish. It appeared more satiny on the skin, once I had a chance to blend and buff the powder onto my cheeks, but it definitely had a subtler finish, which would make it ideal for someone who doesn’t like a lot of noticeable shimmer in their cheek color.

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. The consistency was soft but powdery, a little drier and looser overall, so it was prone to sheering out and was harder to build-up coverage from its naturally medium coverage level, but it was possible with three to four layers. I noticed fading around the edges after six and a half hours of wear.

Truth or Bare

Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Bare Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium pink with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had opaque color coverage that spread evenly across the lips.

The formula is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and have full coverage. If you like the idea of liquid lipstick but prefer more of a satin finish and something more forgiving on the lips, then this formula is going to be more suitable for you. If you prefer a flat, matte finish that’s transfer-proof, then this formula will not meet your needs. It is, literally, a liquid version of lipstick–it feels like a lightweight lipstick with light to moderate slip that lasts four to six hours. This particular shade had a smooth, lightweight consistency that was comfortable to wear, easy to apply, and lightly hydrating over time. It lasted for six hours on me before fading noticeably.

Yours to Try

Marc Jacobs Beauty Yours to Try Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. There was a noticeable sheen, but it wore down to more of a true satin finish after two hours of wear.

The formula is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and have full coverage. If you like the idea of liquid lipstick but prefer more of a satin finish and something more forgiving on the lips, then this formula is going to be more suitable for you. If you prefer a flat, matte finish that’s transfer-proof, then this formula will not meet your needs. It is, literally, a liquid version of lipstick–it feels like a lightweight lipstick with light to moderate slip that lasts four to six hours. The consistency was smooth, easy to spread across the lips, and covered evenly and didn’t sink into lip lines initially. It was very pigmented and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted, though it was more non-drying for me.

Blanc Scintillant

Lancome Blanc Scintillant Petit Tresor Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.045 oz.) is a bright, sparkling white with subtle, warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and semi-opaque coverage applied damp. The consistency was soft, a little dry and looser in the pan, and this particularly shade was better used with a damp brush, as it applied more evenly. The color lasted for eight and a half hours both dry and damp, but this was nowhere near the 16-hours claimed.

The Petit Tresor formula is supposed to have a “delicate and creamy formula” that “does not crease” and can be used “dry or wet to increase color intensity,” per Lancome’s website. One additional claim, which was on several other retailers for this product, was that the formula is supposed to have 16-hour wear. The formula is comparable to ones like MAC Extra Dimension and NARS Dual-Intensity. It felt smooth in the pan, blended out easily on the skin, and tended to have richer pigmentation and a stronger, more metallic finish applied damp than when used dry. I think that the formula looks better in person than in just photos, as it has a very “lived-in” kind of finish–a little melted in, so there’s an illusion of wetness but not creasing on the skin.

As long as you’re not a stickler for wear time, I actually quite enjoyed these and felt like they created a beautiful, sparkling finish on the lid.
