Bite o' Georgia

MAC Bite o’ Georgia Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light, peachy coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply as evenly as most of the Liptensity range has in the past. This one seemed almost grainy as bits of color seemed to clump up on my lips. Even though it had a glossier, the color read chalky. The texture was smooth, firm in the bullet with slight tackiness. It wore well for four and a half hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.12 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense amounts of pigment” with a gel-like texture that melts on lips that leaves behind a satin finish and wears for “eight hours.” It’s supposed to be “comfortable” to wear, but there are no claims about hydration–and overall, they were non-drying.

The majority of the range varied from semi-opaque to fully opaque in one stroke, while the texture had some body and thickness to it but was not heavy. The consistency feels firmer in the tube, but it became softer and more pliable as it warmed up against the lips. This was also true about how the color settled and looked on the lips–it tended to fill up lip lines without emphasizing them as much after thirty seconds of wear. The formula didn”t have a lot of slip, and it was actually lightly tacky, which helped it stay in place better.

The wear ranged from four to eight hours with lighter shades typically wearing shorter than deeper and more intense shades. The finish was anywhere from satin to natural with noticeable sheen, sometimes glossiness, but it often wore to a satin to semi-matte finish after a few hours. The formula has MAC’s typical vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.

Colour Pop Trickles Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with warm, pink undertones and a cool, violet pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but the texture was incredibly dense and tended to apply unevenly as the product clumped up on the skin. It was actually a powder that applied better with a synthetic brush or fingertips rather than a natural hair, fluffy brush as it needed more to break up and smooth out the powder. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.23 oz. - $34.78 Per Ounce

The powder highlighter is supposed to have a "high-shine" finish with "high colour intensity." In general, ColourPop's pressed highlighter powders have a smooth, moderately dense texture that was soft enough to be picked up easily by a brush but not kick up any powder in the pan. The formula was semi-opaque to opaque but easily sheered out for less shine and coverage if desired. There were a few shades within the range that emphasized my skin's natural texture slightly but most did not. The wear ranged from seven and a half hours to nine hours.

Stix and Bones

Urban Decay Stix and Bones Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a shimmer base of blackened plum with warm, brown undertones and larger flecks of green, plum, and copper glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but the darker base made it appear more uneven and patchy when used on its own. When layered over something deeper (like brown or black eyeliner), it looked sparkly and pretty. This shade stayed on well for nine hours with minimal fallout.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.25 oz. - $80.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable" with "superfine glitter" that "dries down quickly and really stays put." For more opaque coverage, the brand recommends removing the wiper (the black component inside the opening of the tube) to get a lot more product on the brush, though I've found this to be messy and easy to over-apply (with a very long dry-down time). When the wiper is left in, it is a fairly sheer to semi-sheer coverage product that is difficult to get in a long, even line. My best advice is to apply in short strokes and going back for more product as needed or use a separate brush to apply. Once in place, the formula lasts a really long time--eight to nine hours--with minimal fallout.
