Bright Crimson

Burberry Bright Crimson Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a smooth, cream-mousse hybrid consistency that was easy to spread across the lips. Initially, it seemed more white-based and almost chalky, but after a few minutes, it seemed to transform and looked smooth, even, and lush on the lips. The color wore well for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is described as having “rich pigment, smooth application” and a “velvet finish that lasts up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is fantastic for those who want the fluidity of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not sacrificing wear time. The formula does not dry down completely, so there will be transfer, but the product is so pigmented that the color lasts awhile. I’ve found the colors to wear between six and eight hours and easily survive a solid meal. The liquid lipstick has a smooth, velvety consistency that is almost weightless (I forget I’m wearing it) that was never drying and always comfortable to wear. A pleasant surprise was that the formula was unscented (with no discernible taste either), which is not the norm with Burberry’s products.

MAC x Kabuki Magic Today We Live Powder Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes a soft, coral blush paired with a medium, taupe-brown. It’s a decent product, but the taupe-brown could be easier to work with.

Dearly Beloved

MAC Dearly Beloved Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips without tugging. The lipstick wore well for five hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and comfortable to wear.

This shade will be available on February 9th online and in select stores.

MAC Viva Glam Taraiji P. Henson Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a slightly firmer consistency in the tube. The texture was smooth, cream-like but did tug on the lips just a tad (not uncomfortably, though). On me, the color lasted for six hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

This shade will be available on February 2nd.

Warm Mattes (10)

Viseart Warm Mattes (10) Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is an unabashedly warm-toned palette filled with a mix of beige, brown, orange, and red. There are a lot of yellow and orange-based shades here. The palette worked well on its own, but it was easy to incorporate with other Viseart palettes as well. Overall, the quality was consistent with my past experience with Viseart’s matte formula–pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable.
