Rose Quartz

Jouer Rose Quartz Powder Highlighter ($24.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light pink with warm undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. It’s the type of highlighter that imparts a touch of color on my skin tone but is mostly a highlighter–on fairer complexions, it might be a subtle blush as well.

According to the brand, it’s supposed to be a “creamy, powder formula” that is “long-wearing, highly pigmented” and gives a “lit-from-within glow.” It had very nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly to the skin; it was so finely-milled that it seemed to blend as I applied it, so it was nearly effortless to apply. The consistency was smooth, soft, not too firm or too loose in the pan, and sat well on the skin. I was surprised at how much reflective shine it had without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Maybelline

My least favorite thing that Maybelline does is heavily scent (to the point where they sometimes result in off-tastes) their lip products. I love their lipsticks, which have always been one of their strongest areas.

Gold Shimmer No. 28

Burberry Gold Shimmer No. 28 Complete Eye Palette ($60.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays. It contained a “cooler” gold, medium gold, soft bronze, and brighter, golden bronze.

I expect that this palette is going to work best for someone who likes more mid-tone shades and does not want a lot of contrast–and someone who loves more shimmery finishes and does not expect a matte shade in their quads. The palette performed fairly well with good pigmentation, blendability, and decent to good wear; the only issue I had was that the texture felt a bit dusty at times.
