Urban Decay Hawkeye Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, emerald green pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips without tugging on them, but the color itself could have applied more evenly. The texture was thin but moderately emollient, which helped it apply without pulling on the lips, but it did not help keep the color in place. This shade wore well for four and a half hours but was prone to color getting in my deeper lip lines over time. It felt moisturizing while I wore it.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.11 oz. - $154.55 Per Ounce

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is available in six finishes, which are primarily distinguished by level of sheen, shimmer content, and coverage. Mega Mattes are the thinnest and have the most “cling” as they are drier and more matte (but most are semi-matte and not a totally flat matte) and can be drying, though they are longer-wearing.

Comfort Mattes are creamier, a little denser, with richer color payoff on average (they are the most pigmented out of the finishes), and have a satin finish that is fairly comfortable to wear, usually lightly hydrating, and longer-wearing.

Creams are usually softer and creamier, though not too soft (they don’t mush or break from the base easily), with some being tackier and stiffer in the tube until they warm up against the lips; they have good color payoff, are hydrating, and are comfortable to wear but have more typical wear (four to six hours–six hours for deeper/richer shades like a red).

Sheers and Sheer Shimmers have a more balm-like consistency that feels a little thinner but is wetter/more emollient than Mega Mattes, so ultimately, they feel quite different applied; they have sheerer coverage, though more semi-sheer to semi-opaque than very sheer, and have the shortest wear time at two to fours with light hydration.

Metallized is the most shimmery of the finishes, though some of the other finishes have shades that are actually as shimmery (to me), but the Metallized formula has a thinner, more emollient base that isn’t as dense or as cream-like as the Creams; they feel more like the Sheers but a bit heavier and more pigmented (but seem to run semi-opaque to opaque, not always fully opaque) with average wear (four to five hours), light hydration.

Happy Camper

ColourPop Happy Camper Pressed Powder Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a rich, dark bronze with warm, golden pearl and a metallic sheen. The consistency was smooth, cream-like, and extremely blendable on the skin. It had rich, opaque color payoff in a single layer, but it was easy to use less or sheer out the product on the skin for a less intense look. The only downside was that it did seem to emphasize my skin’s texture noticeably. On my normal-to-dry skin, the powder stayed on well for eight hours.

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.

Fenty Beauty Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains a light, pearly gold and a brighter, peachy gold with a metallic finish. The right side was an intense highlighter but did accentuate the look of my skin’s texture, which may be a deal breaker for some–definitely not “superfine shimmer” as described. The left side was subtle but also quite sheer with a less forgiving texture for ease of use.

Peach Dream

Too Faced Peach Dream Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.44 oz.) is very light pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. The color was rather light and would be more suitable for someone with fairer skin. It had medium, buildable coverage.

The consistency was smooth and a touch creamy initially, but after one or two uses, the surface seemed to become drier, more powder-like, though definitely not a true powder. As soon as I used a fingertip to apply or applied the product to my face using a brush, it felt and performed more like a powder-based texture. The downside was that the product had a tendency to lift my base as it was a drier, harder-to-blend product on the cheeks. I had the best application by using my fingertips to pat the color on the apples of my cheeks and using the side of my fingertip to diffuse the edges. On me, it lasted for five hours.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.44 oz. - $68.18 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "cream-to-powder blush" that has "buildable color" and a "creamy, velvety texture" paired with a "radiant-matte finish." The consistency felt creamy to the touch, but it also felt a little powdery. It had a candy-coated shell initially--very shiny--but after one or two uses, the texture looked more matte and felt a lot drier. It seemed almost as if it was drying out over time, so ultimately, it felt more like a powder going on most of the time.

The texture was thinner and while it was no trouble to diffuse the product across the skin, it did not do so that evenly, and I noticed a lot of color that seemed to sit in my pores (like dots of deeper color). The coverage was more buildable when applied with a fingertip, but it was a challenge to get more coverage that was still blended as the color seemed to disappear as I blended it out (even just a little). The only way I could manage decent application was patting color on the apples of the cheeks with fingertips and lightly pressing to blend, and then going back with a bit of foundation actually blend out the edges. The wear was short end on bare skin at six to seven hours.

Over foundation, they were worse, as they lifted liquid foundations a lot, which resulted in uneven coverage and some unevenness in overall texture, too, as the cream-to-powder formula caused clumping with my liquid foundations (I tried three different ones with this blush formula).
