Gold Lights

Lancome Gold Lights Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid ($23.00 for 0.08 oz.) is light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied without issue to the skin, though I felt like it was easiest and fastest to work with fingertips for blending over a brush. The consistency was thin, a little mousse-y, and dried down so the wear was longer (seven and a half hours) but gave me enough time to work with it first.

The formula is described as buildable, though it is designed to give skin a “barely-there shimmer” and a “natural-looking glow.” It has a more unique, foamy, sponge-tipped applicator to disperse and apply the product, which I wasn’t in love with (did not seem to do well at blending, building, or doing anything other than transferring product from the interior to my face) and seemed to soak up quite a bit of product. The formula wasn’t as thin as a typical liquid highlighter, though it wasn’t thick or heavy either; almost like a watery mousse. I had the best luck blending with fingertips, which maneuvered and spread the product without lifting it. They dried down within a minute or so, and the wear time was between seven and eight hours. I’d describe the glow as light to moderate as the coverage was buildable from sheer to semi-sheer. Worth noting, the pen delivery system does not contain that much product, particularly when we’re talking about liquid highlighters.

Dark Desire

Estee Lauder Dark Desire Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly on the lips. The lipstick was lightly creamy with enough slip to glide on without tugging but did not slide around once on. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating.

The formula is supposed to have medium coverage with a lustrous finish. It takes the Pure Color Envy formula and adds shimmer to it with the end result varying from lightly pearlized to more frosted and near-metallic. The shimmer was finer in size, so the lipsticks did not feel gritty on the lips, and the particles didn’t migrate as the lipstick wears down. The coverage was more semi-opaque to opaque, though a lighter hand could achieve medium coverage. . It was lightly creamy with some slip that became more noticeable as the formula warmed up against the lips. The wear ranged from four to six hours and was typically hydrating. The formula featured a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.

Sneak Peek: Stellar Beauty Lipstick & Blush Photos & Swatches

Stellar Beauty Infinite Lipstick
Stellar Beauty Infinite Lipstick

Stellar Beauty just debuted at Sephora (and it’s also a new brand in general!) this month. I picked up six of the Infinite Lipsticks, all five shades of the Metallic Moon Lipsticks, and three of the blushes (one arrived shattered, so I only have two in this post with the replacement still on its way). The brand also has a liquid foundation, liquid concealer, loose powder, and mascara, but I figured I’d see how they managed with lipstick first.
