10 Peach

Make Up For Ever 10 Peach Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and multi-colored pearl that gave it a metallic finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff when applied with a dry brush, and it had richer, opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with, despite it being a loose product, on the cheeks as well as the eyes. For using on the lips, I recommend patting lightly with a fingertip. I found the shimmer in this particular shade to be a bit larger compared to other shades, though I did not think it emphasized my skin’s natural texture. The product wore well for eight hours on my cheeks and on my eyes.

The Star Lit Powders can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” with an “ultra-fine loose powder” that can be used “wet or dry to customize coverage intensity and luminosity.” While checking the weight on these, I noticed that the weight differs from shade to shade; this one had a mere 0.02 oz. while others ranged from 0.03 oz. to 0.09 oz. I also noticed that it appears the brand identifies what area you can use a shade on by listing an icon on the back of the jar in the shape of a pair of lips, an eyeball, and then a face (presumably for cheeks).

My Burberry Blush

Burberry My Burberry Blush Palette ($68.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer but was a more forgiving blush that could be diffused or used with a lighter hand for less coverage if desired. The gold in the background of the powder was just an overspray; all swatches were done after removing the overspray.

The formula is supposed to have a “soft-as-silk” texture that yields a “blendable powder formula [that] can be layered for custom intensity.” I would describe it as a fairly pigmented blush–medium to semi-opaque coverage if used with a light hand or feathery brush–that had a more forgiving texture, so it could easily be sheered out for less coverage or intensity. The finish became more luminous the more blended and diffused the powder was on the skin, but it never appeared noticeably shimmery so it never accentuated the skin’s natural texture. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, but I had no trouble picking up product with softer brushes (like SUQQU’s Cheek). On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

9 Coral

Make Up For Ever 9 Coral Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is rich, medium-dark pink-coral with warm, golden shimmer. This particular shade was only listed as safe to wear on the cheeks–presumably as a blush, then–and not permitted for eye or lip use. The powder had a soft, silky texture that was incredibly finely-milled, which made it a lot easier to diffuse and blend out on the cheeks–something necessary for such a rich shade! It had medium, buildable pigmentation when applied dry, and opaque coverage was achieved when applied damp. The shimmer finish became more prominent when applied damp or when buffed more into the skin. This shade stayed on well for nine hours on me.

The Star Lit Powders can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” with an “ultra-fine loose powder” that can be used “wet or dry to customize coverage intensity and luminosity.” While checking the weight on these, I noticed that the weight differs from shade to shade; this one had a mere 0.02 oz. while others ranged from 0.03 oz. to 0.09 oz.

Statemint

Dose of Colors Statemint Blush ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, but it had a tendency to darken and fade after initial application, so it was not a shade that showed up well on my skin tone but I suspect will be just fine on those lighter than me. The consistency was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly and smoothly to the cheeks while blending out without difficulty. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading slightly.

B202

Make Up For Ever B202 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is light, bubblegum pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, almost cream-like formula that was moderately dense but incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. On me, the color stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

You can view swatches of all of the blushes, all of the highlighters, and all of the sculpting powders in the Swatch Gallery.

Amazemint

Dose of Colors Amazemint Blush ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with flecks of gold pearl over a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque color payoff with two to three layers, but it was not a product I’d consider to be “rich pigment” (which is how it was described). The consistency was soft, slightly powdery, but it was blendable and easy to work with on the skin. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
