Chocolate Gold

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features 16 eyeshadows–13 with shimmer and three that are matte. I think that they could have gone with a more satin-to-pearl finish on the lightest shade (Rollin’ in Dough), as it would pair better with the rest of the shades and could be used to lighten and fade the edges of richer shades in the palette without causing any grayness or tamping down the shimmery finish. Otherwise, the palette was pretty easy to use, lasted well, and had good pigmentation. There were a few shimmery shades that applied more evenly or more intensely using a dampened brush, or if one used primer first.

MAC MamaStarrr Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had a smooth, moderately tacky texture that was fairly easy to spread across the lips. The pigmentation was good–not quite opaque–and applied with very minimal streaking, though there was some color that gathered into my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.10 oz. - $170.00 Per Ounce

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I have found that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

Plum Rose

Bobbi Brown Plum Rose Luxe Lip Color ($37.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, creamy, and lightweight without being too thin or too thick on the lips. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips evenly in a single layer. It wore well for five and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.13 oz. - $284.62 Per Ounce

Best Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color  is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way.

The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer-wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on (it’s no Dior/Chanel-level scent!).

In general, I like Bobbi Brown’s lipstick formulas, and this one feels creamier and more hydrating than others, but for pigmentation, you can’t go wrong with this or the Rich Lip Color formula.

Colour Pop Weirdough Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a matte finish. It had a powder texture that kicked up a lot of excess product in the pan and seemed to come from a drier formula, too, as I felt like it skipped on the skin as I tried to apply and blend it out. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but it wasn’t buildable as the powder just seemed to sheer out the more I blended it out. The blush stayed on well for seven hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. - $38.10 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Best ColourPop Pressed Powder Highlighters

Colour Pop Pressed Powder Highlighter  

ColourPop Pressed Powder Highlighters ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) 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.
