Aloha

Sephora Aloha Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth, creamy, and had moderate slip and felt a touch wet initially, but it dried down fast enough that it didn’t feather or get into my fine lines. It wore well for 10 and a half hours on me before it started to thin noticeably.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.04 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "pigmented" with "one stroke" application that is "waterproof" and lasts for "12 hours." I've been a long-time fan of the formula for its variety of shades that are typically pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable to apply, and easy to work with--they aren't too tough to remove nor do they take too long (or dry down too quickly) to dry. The matte shades tend to be the best, while the shimmery shades are good but can be semi-opaque at times. The glittery/sparkly shades have the most inconsistency, usually with respect to pigmentation. They tend to wear around 10 hours on me.

Soft and Sultry

Milani Soft and Sultry 12-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains a mix of neutrals, taupes, and deep gray/black hues. It has “smoky eye” written all over it. For someone who regularly uses eyeshadow primer and prefers to build up some of their mid-tone shades, I think it would work just fine, but my experience was that several of the matte shades were a little too powdery to remain pigmented in practice, had some fallout, and overall, the formula used in the palette was shorter-wearing than average. Used over primer, they lasted longer (12 hours), but they did show fading/creasing sooner than better formulas, even over primer.

Bionic

Too Faced Bionic Throw Back Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark green with cooler teal sparkle and pearl. It looks better from afar as the high-shine finish from all of the shimmer and sparkle camouflages a good amount of the patchiness, but the lipstick did apply terribly–patchy, uneven, and sank into lip lines, likely a result of the rather emollient consistency. It had semi-sheer coverage that did not build up to full coverage when I tried. The color stayed on well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.10 oz. - $220.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "creamy, comfortable wear" with "full-coverage" pigmentation and a "multi-reflective glitter finish for high-pigment sparkle payoff." If you aren't a fan of glitter, just skip to the next lipstick formula, because this is for glitter lovers. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a few that had sheerer coverage. For as glitter-packed as they were, they felt creamy and smooth being applied and had minimal grittiness even as they wore away. They had average wear--around four hours--with some of the shades that were prone to staining lingering for closer to six hours. The formula was hydrating and easy to wear--these were the very definition of fun and so on-brand for Too Faced. They finally found a way to inject glitter in all of the ways and actually have it work pretty well.

Earth

Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth MegaGlo Highlighting Bar ($6.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a pale gold with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had rich color coverage with a soft, lightly dusty texture that felt more loosely pressed but didn’t look dusty or dry on my skin. The highlighter applied evenly and almost appeared blended without having to do anything as the powder seemed to melt on my skin. It produced a noticeable glow that sat well on my skin and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.30 oz. - $23.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to yield a "lit-from-within glow" that "delivers a strobing effect" with a "super-smooth" texture. All of the shades felt a little dusty, a bit dry, in the pan and by the touch, but they applied beautifully and sat well on my skin--they almost "melted" onto the skin for a very smooth, luminous sheen. The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, but the ones that weren't full coverage were buildable. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

The Big O

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Big O Omega Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a soft, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was a smidgen dusty with this shade, though it had good pigmentation and adhered well to bare skin without sheering out too readily. I didn’t have any trouble blending out the edges, and it didn’t seem to turn the other, deeper matte shades grayish when I blended it into them. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.13 oz. - $223.08 Per Ounce

The formula promises "12 hours" of wear with "high-impact, crease-resistant color." The matte shades were very smooth and finely-milled that they felt almost cream-like, though they were definitely a powder. They were pigmented and most shades blended out easily over bare skin with eight to nine hour wear. The shimmery shades were creamier, a bit more silicone-like by touch, but they weren't too dense or too thick, so they didn't emphasize my lid texture and still applied well with brushes. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me and were typically quite pigmented.

Pure Passion

Milani Pure Passion 12-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a warm-toned neutral palette that leans plum/copper with a mix of shimmers and mattes. The shimmers performed quite well–nicely pigmented, blendable, and easy to use–while the mattes were blendable, some were powdery and sheered out or needed a primer underneath to work well. I did find that most shades wore a bit shorter than average on their own, and even over primer, they showed noticeable fading/creasing after 12-14 hours of wear (I don’t normally see significantly signs of wear with primer).
