Holiday 2017

Cover FX Holiday 2017 Custom Enhancer Drops Set ($42.00 for 0.45 oz.) contains four, miniature-sized liquid highlighters. All four shades are available individually, but the set is an excellent way to enjoy the liquid highlighter formula without committing to the higher price tag for a single shade. Plus, as a liquid-based formula, they just won’t last as long as a powder one, so the smaller sizes means finishing them has a higher possibility!

I have reviewed these shades previously, when they were originally released as individual shades, and I did not find any inconsistencies in color, finish, or texture when swatching and applying these shades to my cheeks, so I did not re-test for wear time. For each shade, I’ve included a link to my original, more in-depth review, and you can also click on the tab “Formula Overview,” which provides an in-depth overview of the formula in general.

Value

Each full-sized Custom Enhancer Drops retails for $42.00 and contains 0.50 fl. oz. or $84.00/fl. oz. The set is priced at $42.00 and contains 0.45 fl. oz. or $93.33/oz. You’re getting just about as much product as you would buying a single shade but the upside is trying four shades for the price of one.

The Pinkprint

MAC The Pinkprint Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer. It seemed to have more slip than most Amplifieds, which made it appear a touch streaky along the edges and more prone to settling in my lip lines. The texture was comfortable to wear as the creamy quality helped it glide on without tugging. It wore well for four hours but settled further into my lip lines. The formula felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

LORAC Mega Pro 4 Palette ($59.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holiay season, though the color scheme is certainly not typical for the holidays! To my eye, it gave a more springtime vibe to me due to the more muted quality of a lot of the colors.

First Impressions

While I have always appreciated the blendability of LORAC’s Pro formula, I have often struggled to wear it well on bare skin due to how powdery/soft they are, as the colors often sheer out or go on unevenly (as they seem more prone to absorbing the natural oils on my skin). This palette had some shades that were dusty and thin, and those sheered out very easily and were hard to keep intense/opaque. There were others that were quite pigmented and seemed to go on well (or that they would). The more powdery formula often wears shorter on me than the average powder eyeshadow, and the eyeshadows in the palette felt similar to past releases so nothing says that the wear would be improved but we’ll see.

LORAC seems to like to reuse names, as there were several shades in the palette with the same names as past releases but the colors were completely different (not just in a way that might occur from a different batch). I have no idea why a warm beige is called “Cool Taupe” at all given the shade existed previously (and was more taupe-like!).

Sneak Peek: Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set Photos & Swatches

Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set

Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set

Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six shades of liquid eyeshadow with three shades being part of the Shimmer & Glow finish and three from the Glitter & Glow finish.

First Impressions

Only one of the shades is a shade I’m familiar with–Smoldering Satin–so I don’t have too much food for thought at the moment. Peachy Sheen ran sheer and would definitely be better for adding glitter on top of something else rather than attempting to build it up (which does not always go well in this formula due to the amount of glitter). The three Shimmer & Glow shades seemed fairly pigmented and smooth, and they have more of a pearly-to-metallic finish so I am curious how well they’ll sit on the lid but haven’t had the chance to try them yet.
