Bal (250)

Dior Bal (250) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-glitter over a more matte finish. There were some of the glittery bits that translated onto my skin when I applied the blush on my cheeks, but they weren’t too noticeable and didn’t seem to migrate much over time. The blush had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly powedery texture that was a little messy in the pan but did not look dry or chalky applied to my skin. It applied evenly, blended out easily, and lasted for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$44.00/0.23 oz. - $191.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense, ultra-pigmented color that lasts," though under "formula," the brand states that it has "bold, yet buildable color." Most of the shades I tried were quite pigmented, but the denser, smoother consistency of the powder made it possible to apply less for more buildable coverage as they weren't too powdery nor too stiff in the pan to work with. They applied easily, blended out well, and stayed on for eight to nine hours on me. The powders did have a floral scent to them, though I did not notice the scent when applied to my skin (more in the compact).

Twilight Hour (02)

Shiseido Twilight Hour (02) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a barley-there golden pearl. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The powder was velvety, silky, and smooth to the touch without being powdery (but it also wasn’t too dense or stiff in the pan). It was on the thinner side, though, and applied better over lightly powdered (or drier) skin than on my bare skin, particularly with respect to evenness and blendability. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.14 oz. - $207.14 Per Ounce

According to the brand, it's a highlighting blush that "stay[s] put for eight hours" with "high color payoff and superior glide." The shades I tried were semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation with finishes that ranged from satin to metallic. I found that the most shimmery shade I tried, Inner Light, did emphasize my skin's natural texture, while the others did not. The powders had a smooth, almost creamy-like texture that was firmer in the pan (no excess product kicked up), but it picked up well with brushes, adhered to skin evenly, and blended with ease along the edges. The wear was between eight and nine hours on me.

Solar Haze (05)

Shiseido Solar Haze (05) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, golden orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The consistency was dense, firm but not stiff, and smooth to the touch. Of the shades I tried in the range, this was one of the more shimmery ones, and I did find that it emphasized my skin’s texture somewhat when worn at semi-opaque or higher coverage. The less shimmery shades have been more smoothing/softening overall. The powder was easy to apply and blend out, though, and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Inner Light (01)

Shiseido Inner Light (01) InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, pinky-beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation (though it might seem more medium-coverage based on how close it appears to my skin in my arm swatch) in a single layer with a very shiny, very frosted finish. This is more like a true highlighter for most skin tones but on very fair skin tones, it would add color as well. While the powder had a smooth, velvety texture that was almost cream-like, it did not sit as well on my skin as I anticipated; I found it rather accentuating of my natural texture. I thought it was just that day I swatched it, but it was the same on subsequent applications. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Rose Baiser (361)

Dior Rose Baiser (361) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it was easy to apply and blend out for even, diffused color on my cheeks. It had excellent pigmentation that was easy to work with whether I wanted sheerer coverage (using a lighter hand) or intense coverage (using a moderate hand). The blush blended out well along the edges and yielded a natural sheen–skin-like but not actually shimmery–that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$44.00/0.23 oz. - $191.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense, ultra-pigmented color that lasts," though under "formula," the brand states that it has "bold, yet buildable color."

They applied easily, blended out well, and stayed on for eight to nine hours on me. The powders did have a floral scent to them, though I did not notice the scent when applied to my skin (more in the compact).

How Many Carats

Fenty Beauty How Many Carats Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) contains pale silver shimmer and larger sparkle. It’s exactly as described by the brand–“a glittering veil”–that adds moderate sparkle wherever one applies it. The base was translucent, so it layered well with various blushes while adding very shiny, glittery goodness. It had a smooth, slightly spongy texture–like a cream-powder hybrid that was a little more cream-like than powder-like by touch–that adhered evenly and blended out for an even layer of sparkle/glitter.

I did find that it could emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly when I applied more than a sheer to semi-sheer layer of it, though it caught light beautifully in person that I barely noticed the emphasis from a normal distance. This glitter-happy highlighter adhered well to bare skin and didn’t dust away immediately; there was slight migration over time but most of it stuck around (ha, ha) for a solid eight hours.
