24Kray

Fenty Beauty 24Kray Fairy Bomb Shimmer Powder ($28.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, golden undertones and a metallic sheen. It was pigmented where a little went a long way, but whether it was over-the-top pigmented or buildable really depended on how much product you picked up with your brush as the nature of loose powder products just makes it harder to control. I’ll say that quite a bit of the powder came through the pre-made holes, so I’d recommend using a light hand or a tapered brush, then gently tapping into the lid, to ensure an even application.

The powder was very finely-milled and seemed less sparkly to me than the powder in the Pom Pom–this was smoother, more of a high-shine finish than a sparkling one. Depending on how you picked up product, it can go on more or less evenly but blends very easily, so regardless, it always diffused and spread out well on my skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.21 oz. - $133.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "the same smooth, hyper-reflective shimmer" that was packed into the Fairy Bomb Glittering Pom Pom but now "a loose powder pot" that has "precision and payoff." It can be used on "your face, eyes, and body," and has a "vanilla coconut scent." The loose powder version seemed less sparkly but shinier, and they were significantly more pigmented. I find that loose powders like this are hard to judge on pigmentation, as they are often pigmented but can depend on how much one picks up with a brush or applies in a way that's harder to judge/measure (compared to a pressed powder).

That being said, I definitely felt I had to be careful when picking up product with my tapered highlighting brushes to avoid over-applying product. I would recommend picking up product with a brush, gently tapping off excess into the lid, then swirling the brush inside the lid to evenly distribute product onto the brush. The three shades blended out well and lasted between eight and nine hours on me.

Légèreté et Expérience

Chanel Légèreté et Expérience Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition all-matte quad featuring a coral, peach, red, and mid-tone brown. All four shades were fairly pigmented and lasted between seven and eight hours, though I had some trouble diffusing and blending out the red shade. I know readers were concerned about overlap with the Candeur et Experience quad, and I think the red and brown are similar enough, but the top two shades in Candeur et Experience aren’t replicated in this quad.

111 Champagne

Make Up For Ever 111 Champagne Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) has pale peach base with flecks of pink-to-copper shifting sparkle. The texture felt a little more sand-like compared to other shades; it was different than others, as something about the base color didn’t seem as finely-milled. While the others had some ability to be used dry, this was one that I struggled to use without an adhesive spray/tacky base as there was a lot of fallout when I used it. There was a subtle shift at times, more noticeable in person, but it was the least shifting shades in the range that I’ve seen.

As an eyeshadow, it went on unevenly and had to be used with a fixative to keep it in place or else most of it dropped off the lid (very little longevity). As a highlighter, as my skin is more hydrated and has more natural oils on it (compared to my lid or arm), it adhered better and I could buff in the base pigment better, but it didn’t have much of a reflective effect. A lot of shades in the range looked gorgeous on, particularly in person, but this one was underwhelming. At best, the wear on my eyes was a few hours, and on my cheeks, closer to eight with some traveling but little sparkle seemed to adhere on my cheeks to begin with.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.08 oz. - $325.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable, blendable, [and] light-reflective" and can be used on the eyes, face, and body. The brand says that they can be applied with "brush or fingers," and while they say that "for cleaner application and stronger hold, wet brush with" an adhesive spray, it does imply it can be used without for less clean/less hold. The powders seem as finely-milled as they're going to get, but they have micro-sparkle and sparkle to them so they have a drier, almost loose glittery texture overall. Some shades seemed to have a stronger base color that came through than others, which were more glittery overall with a sheerer or transparent base.

I wore several of them on cheeks as well as eyes with most shades performing decently without an adhesive spray/tacky base, but the wear time was between six and eight hours with light to moderate fallout (depending on the shade) on eyes and eight hours on cheeks with some sparkle migration over time. I definitely would recommend using the product with an adhesive spray for the "cleaner application and stronger hold" the brand says it would result in.

Moon and Swoon

Colour Pop Moon and Swoon Super Shock Shadow Duo ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains a pale, glittery peach and a pinky-berry. Both shades lasted well and were easy enough to work with, though the lighter half was sheerer and more of a brightening or layering shade. When I layered Moon over Swoon, the resulting combo was a lighter, brighter take on Swoon with more sparkle.

Detour

Urban Decay Detour On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that featured only two repromotes (the other six are new) with six neutrals and two pops of color. I was surprised that Detour didn’t blend out more readily as it wasn’t the type of color that would seem prone to problems, and there was nothing about the texture that gave me reason to anticipate blending issues, but alas, it took a bit more effort to diffuse. Plunge in this palette is a far cry from the glorious beauty of Plunge in the Beached palette.

Electra

Pat McGrath Electra BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.)
is a rich, fiery red with warm, gold and copper sparkle and micro-glitter. It can look redder or more orange depending on the light and how it plays with all of the sparkle/glitter. The lipstick was richly pigmented with nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and it built up to full coverage with just a bit more to top off certain areas. The consistency was lightly creamy, fairly smooth, but I could detect the texture from all the sparkle in it. When I pressed my lips together, I knew I was wearing a sparkly lip product, but it did not feel rough or uncomfortable to wear. It wore well for five and a half hours and left a pink-red stain behind, while the formula felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.13 oz. - $292.31 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "one-stroke colour" with "ultra-reflective pearls" paired with a "silky" and "creamy" texture that yields "multi-dimensional shine." The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with more medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that "full coverage," and the amount of shimmer/glitter also varied significantly from to shade. For example, Blitz Trance has a very glittery look on the lips, whereas Flesh Fatale had a subtle, sparkling finish. They had a lot of shine, though, with being wet in feel or all that glossy, which seemed to linger for longer than the average lipstick--the shine didn't immediately dull after taking a sip of something or talking for a few minutes.

The consistency was lightly creamy with moderate slip, but it didn't feel too thick or heavy, so the color didn't slide around on my lips and adhered evenly for the most part. Shades that were more glittery felt that way in the tube as I applied them to my lips with the glitter being less noticeable on my lips, though those who may be more sensitive to glitter may find it at least somewhat apparent--at the very least, this formulation is not disguising the texture of all that sparkly goodness. They were lightly to moderately hydrating, comfortable to wear, and lasted between three and five hours. I feel like the best way to sum these up as: they're sparkling and luminous with medium, buildable color payoff that lasts an average length of time. They did not have any scent or taste from what I could tell!
