The Veil

NARS The Veil Man Ray Face Palette ($49.00 for 0.38 oz.) is a trio of “buildable” powders that includes limited edition blush and highlighting shades. If you like your cheek colors more pigmented, the trio might work for you, but if you were holding onto the concept of “buildable,” then I think you may be more disappointed.

Terracotta Gold Light

Guerlain Terracotta Gold Light Holiday 2017 Terracotta Bronzing Powder ($60.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and faint, golden pearl over a satin finish.

Per the brand, this holiday’s limited edition bronzing powder is supposed to give a “sunkissed, lit-from-within glow.” It has the brand’s signature Terracotta scent, though it was more moderate than other iterations have been–it didn’t flood my room with the scent after being opened for a half hour! The texture was soft but on the dustier side, which made it more prone to sheering out and harder to build up. I could see this working as a buildable bronzer on very light commplexions and a barely-there highlighter on deeper, very golden/yellow-based complexions. On my complexion (light-medium or so), I felt like it highlighted more than bronzed, but it was just the right tone and depth that it almost made other areas appear contoured. The powder wore nicely on my skin for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Apres Ski Glow

Becca Apres Ski Glow Glow Face Palette ($54.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains two blushes, one bronzer, and three highlighters. Two shades–Icicle and Winter Berry–are new and exclusive to the palette, while the rest are available individually. I do not think that the quality of the powders in the palette is the same as the full-sized range; some perform worse but they felt different: drier, more papery. It’s always a shame when a brand changes up their formulas when they put them in a palette for the worse.

Nose Pose

MAC Nose Pose Cream Colour Base Duo ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) seems to be a highlighting/contouring duo, but of course, it’s very “one-size” and will certainly not fit all or even most. The darker side seemed more like a bronzing color than a contouring one, though some with very warm complexions may prefer the warmth in the deeper shade for contouring. They can also be used on the eyes, as the formula is a multi-use one.

Toasted Peach

Too Faced Toasted Peach Bronzed Peach Melting Powder Bronzer ($30.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with fine, golden shimmer over a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation.

The texture felt creamy upon the first use, but subsequent uses had a much drier, part-powder, part-cakey texture that was harder to apply and to use. The drier texture was a bit thicker and less forgiving when it came to blending out the color, particularly when applied over foundation, as it would lift and move the foundation on the skin. This yielded an uneven application, both in terms of color placement but also in the actual texture of the skin (or accumulation of products). On me, it lasted for five hours.

Rodeo Drive

ColourPop Rodeo Drive Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm, rosy undertones and a natural, matte finish. The texture was soft, slightly powdery, and more prone to sheering out on the skin. I loved the color of the bronzer but wish the consistency was better; there was something about how it sat on my skin that seemed like the color pulled into my pores and looked a bit splotchy. It was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance but could be a deal-breaker for some. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The powder stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.25 oz. - $32.00 Per Ounce

ColourPop's Pressed Powder Bronzer is supposed to have a "super velvety-soft" feel that yields a "natural tanned glow." There was no mention of coverage, but the brand's promotional swatches showed full coverage. The bronzers had a soft, silky texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but tended to apply with ease, blended out nicely, and sat well on the skin. The majority of the shades seemed to have a semi-matte to satin finish, which helped them glide on and appear more natural (in finish) on the skin. The wear ranged from eight to eight and a half hours on me.
