MAC Spontaneous, Sultana, Teen Dream Patentpolish Lip Pencil

Here are the last three shades from the new MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) range that I’ve finished testing! You can check out part one for an overview of the formula (and in-depth reviews of Go for Girlie, Innocent, Revved Up), part two (Fearless, Kittenish, Patentpink), and part three (round-up coming up next!). To summarize: the formula is lightly hydrating, short-wearing (two to three hours), moderately tacky, and have light to moderate shine. The color coverage varies from semi-sheer to semi-opaque. I’ve also had some issues with even application with some shades.

Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) & Rose Glace (866) Rouge G Lipsticks

This summer, Guerlain introduces new shades of Rouge G. Five shades are being added to the permanent range, and there are two limited edition shades–both featured in detail below–that come in specially-colored lacquered cases. They’ll be available at the retailers Guerlain is sold, and right now, only Saks seems to have the new shades available online. Rouge G is a long-time favorite for me, because of the long-wear, rich color payoff, and hydrating, comfortable formula.

theBalm #37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 Eyeshadows

#37 is a dark, neutral-to-cool-toned brown with a soft, pearly sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was really soft and easy to blend. It wore well for nine hours on me. MAC Phresh Out #5 (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Bewitch (LE, $18.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Smut (P, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Laura Mercier Bare Baby & Poppy Lip Glaces

This spring, there are thirteen new shades of Laura Mercier Lip Glace ($25.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) being added to the permanent range. The new shades are supposed to be richer in color with the same “megawatt shine,” “nonsticky” texture, and hydrating formula. I tested two shades, Bare Baby and Poppy, yesterday. The formula is lightweight, not too thin or too thick, glossy, lightly hydrating, and non-sticky. There’s a burnt sugar/caramel-like scent to the gloss, but I didn’t notice any taste.

theBalm #31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 Eyeshadows

#31 is a light, cool-toned, silver-shot white with a frosted finish. It had so-so color payoff, while the texture was soft, it was also powdery and felt almost dry. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #1 (P) is lighter. MAC A Waft of Grey #1 (P, $21.00) is darker. Dior Lune (001) (P, $30.00) is a cream product.
