Best of Patrick Ta Major Beauty Headlines Collection

Now that I've finished reviewing the newest Patrick Ta collection, which included four Cream & Powder Blush Duos ($34.00 each) and four Matte Suede Lipsticks ($32.00 each).  I really enjoyed the powder blush formula in the duos, and while the cream blush wasn't low quality, it was less interesting...

Best & Worst of Sydney Grace Cream Shadows

Sydney Grace Cream Shadow ($8.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is supposed to "dry down to a smudge proof finish" that isn't waterproof but "will last all day on the lids." The brand recommends working "one eye at a time" as the formula "dr[ies] fairly quickly." It is a very pigmented formula where the merest...

Best of Sydney Grace Eyeshadows | Matte Shadows

Sydney Grace Matte Shadows ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) has one of the best matte eyeshadow formulas I've had the pleasure of trying. It strikes a balance between being soft and blendable but still having excellent pigmentation (that doesn't sheer out too quickly) and adhesion. Some of their newer mattes...

Best of Sydney Grace Eyeshadows | Shimmer Shadows

Here are the highest-rated Sydney Grace Shimmer Shadows ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) that I've reviewed! I find that this formula is slightly less creamy (not as emollient or as dense) and not quite as metallic as the Pressed Pigment Shadow formula, though it's still a very pigmented, blendable, and...

Best of Sydney Grace Lip Creams

Let's see how well the Sydney Grace Lip Creams ($10.00) performed! It's a lipstick-lipgloss hybrid with more of the higher coverage of a lipstick and the shiny look of a gloss. Most shades were quite pigmented, comfortable to wear, and were long-wearing, though some sat better on my lips than...

Best & Worst of Pat McGrath BlitzTrance Lipsticks | 2020

Here's a quick recap on the nine new shades of Pat McGrath BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) that launched earlier this month. They're available in a new finish, creme, with a "fierce flash of shimmer" (as opposed to the more glittery/sparkly BlitzTrances we saw originally), so the shimmer...
