Melt Cosmetics Haze Eyeshadow Stack (x4) ($48.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains a rich red, copper, gold, and pale silver. All four shades contained some shimmer (ranged from pearl to metallic), so I expect that it’ll work better as a complementary “palette” for those who prefer to have a mix of mattes and shimmers in a look. This set of shades was easy to work with, pigmented, and long-wearing.

Purple Panna Cotta

MAC Purple Panna Cotta Oh Sweetie Lipcolour ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, cool undertones and fine, medium pink pearl. It had good color coverage that applied evenly across my lips and didn’t sink into my lip lines as noticeably as a lot of the other shades in the formula have. This shade was also significantly less shimmery/metallic in finish, and it did seem that the less overtly shimmery shades applied and lasted better. As the shininess wore away, it felt less and less creamy (but it took over an hour to get there!) and didn’t slide around any more. The scent was a more indistinct, sweet berries-and-cream, and I didn’t notice any taste. This shade wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "lasting colour" for "eight hour" wear that's "hydrating" and "non-feathering" that comes in "frosted opaque hues." There are 15 shades in the range, and each one has its own distinct scent--tied to its name--and most of the scents were pretty dead-on but I could see those with more sophisticated noses finding some scents a little cloying or synthetic. I didn't notice the scents lingering for long after I applied the respective shade, and I didn't notice any tastes. The coverage ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, while the application was inconsistent, and I think it'll come down to how one wants to wear a particular shade (layered or alone) whether the application pitfalls (settling into lip lines, unevenness) of some shades will be deal-breakers.

The finish on most shades was very shiny and metallic with an initial glossiness that took an hour to three to wear down; most shades felt like a lipstick and gloss hybrid but I can see why MAC has it listed as a lipstick. Once the glossiness goes away, the remaining color and finish look a lot more like a lipstick than a gloss, and it felt clingier (some more than others) and seemed to adhere better. The texture is lightweight, smooth, and mostly non-sticky, so there was more slip and creaminess compared to something like Lipglass, and it didn't have the dry down of a Retro Matte Lipcolour.

They definitely did not wear for eight hours--that claim felt really over-the-top to me--and most shades lasted between four and six hours with a few deviating from that range. There's enough product in an application that a good amount of color comes through after drinking a coffee or glass of water (despite transfer). They were lightly hydrating at best but some seemed more non-drying over time. One upside was that getting colors in this finish (metallic/pearl with some shine) and opacity level (even when they weren't opaque) made them less dupable, though I looked for dupes across lipstick and gloss options.

Glossier Topaz Haloscope ($22.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a fine, golden, dewy sheen. Straight from the tube, it had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable, while if I dabbed it on by getting product on my fingertip, it had more sheer to medium, buildable coverage. The texture was lightweight, moderately tacky, and just creamy enough to feel and blend out like a cream highlighter but seemed to stay in place better and was less prone to lifting up base products. The “coverage” seemed more apparent in person, as my camera picked up more on the dewy glow. The highlighter blended out easily and lasted for eight hours on me–even when I tested it over foundation.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.19 oz. - $115.79 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to give a "hydrated, dewy finish" with an "otherworldly sheen that's never dry, never glittery." First, it's important to note that this product is not marketed as an intense, metallic highlight, and second, the other key takeaway is the use of the word "dewy." It's a luminous, pearlescent highlighter that is cream-based and has some tackiness on the skin, which helped it adhere and stay in place better without destroying base products (like foundation) over time while maintaining a true, dewy finish. Despite the tackiness, it felt very lightweight and worked well on bare skin or on top of foundation (even heavier, matte foundations). If you love glowing, lit-from-within and want some pearl and sheen, this formula just might work out for you.
