Bite Beauty Cava Luminous Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, medium mauve with warmer, pink undertones and a soft sheen. The Luminous Creme formula is supposed to be pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque, with a lightweight consistency that had moderate slip and was comfortable to wear. Some of the color pulled into my lip lines. The color lasted three hours on me but was hydrating. The Amuse Bouche version appeared lighter, a little grayer, with better coverage and longer wear.

Glowing Gold

MAC Glowing Gold Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had rich color payoff with opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on bare skin. The powder had a soft, smooth, dense but not firm texture that blended out easily without losing its intensity on my lid. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Weekend Warrior

ColourPop Weekend Warrior Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four shades of powder eyeshadow–yes, powder!–the brand’s first release featuring their new formula. The pressed powder formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety” and “silky” texture that is “long-wearing.” It’s a solid formula, so I’m definitely curious to try and see more shades from them in the future but hope we’ll see a little refinement over time. The texture of their formula was soft, a little powdery, but there was substance to it–I wouldn’t say dense, but it wasn’t thin or prone to sheering out, just that there was a lot of excess product kicked up in the pan and some fallout during application. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade, though they were all buildable. I had no trouble blending out any of the four shades, and they lasted between seven and eight hours on me.
