Precious Rocks (864)

Dior Precious Rocks (864) DiorBlush Vibrant Color Powder Blush ($45.00 for oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was fine gold sparkle on top of the powder, but it did not go all the way through. The texture was dry with a very chalky base that was difficult to pick up evenly with a brush, blend out. The coverage was sheer, though the brand described it as a “sheer peach.” The issue I had with this was just how poorly it applied–it was patchy and uneven, as the powder seemed to grab onto the skin and not want to move. It lasted for a mere four hours on me before fading noticeably.

Dior Precious Rocks (001) Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($57.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, but the consistency was incredibly smooth, velvety, and finely-milled, so it was easy to sheer out if desired. The powder sat well on the skin and yielded a smooth, luminous sheen–somewhere between subtle and moderate in terms of reflectiveness. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

Sextrology

Pat McGrath Sextrology LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–with a creamy, lightweight texture that slid across the lips without tugging and applied even, smooth coverage. This shade had a bit more slip compared to others that I tried, and it was one of the “weaker” shades but by no means a weak lipstick. It wore well for five hours and had a touch of color that had sunk into my deeper lip lines after four hours of wear. The formula was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.14 oz. - $271.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "intense color payoff" with "comfort" and "rich hydration" that has a "satiny sheen." Of the shades I've tried, they are richly pigmented, long-wearing, incredibly comfortable to wear from start to finish, hydrating, and generally flattering on the lips. The texture was smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide across the lips with ease but never felt slippery or too clingy. Most shades performed exceptionally well, and while pricey, they at least lived up to a lot of the claims. There was no discernible scent or taste.

Heavy Metals

Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday offering that includes 20 eyeshadows. The new formula was developed to “bump up the foiled effect” and have a “velvety feel” with “insane color payout and shiny metallic effects” that ‘blends like a dream.”

Overall, the eyeshadows felt a bit denser and smoother with less powderiness/excess product kicked up in the pan compared to the average Urban Decay eyeshadow but not like so far removed that they don’t feel like shimmery, powder eyeshadows. I only found one shade to be truly disappointing, which was Angelfire, as it was more like a semi-sheer glitter-bomb than a standalone eyeshadow. There were a few others that had room for improvement but most were quite nice and easy to work with.

I would expect that this palette’s impact would be maximized by combining it with your favorite mattes and satins rather than using only the shades in the palette, as they are all shimmery. It’s just not going to be a standalone palette for anyone who typically uses mattes in their looks.

The packaging is certainly different from a lot of palettes, though it felt unnecessarily wide due to the mirror sandwiched between the two panels of eyeshadow. I found it to feel cumbersome, and the slickness of the packaging itself made it harder to hold, so I’m not even sure how practical the mirror being in the middle actually ended up being (for me).

Tom Ford Beauty Katherine Boys & Girls Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium beige with subtle, warm rosy undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly. The texture had moderate slip, felt thin but not clingy, and was comfortable to apply and to wear. There was a smidgen of color that went into my lip lines, though. It lasted for three and a half hours on me but was still hydrating.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Ultra-Rich Lip Color formula is supposed to have "full-coverage" and "high-shine" that "moisturizers lips instantly." The majority of the range had semi-opaque coverage with a few being sheerer and some with more full coverage. The finish was more luminous--shiny but not glossy or heavy--which meant they had moderate slip, so they tended to wear around four hours on me. There were some of the deeper shades (like reds) that lasted longer and left subtle stains behind. I found the formula to be lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.
