NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette (Spring 2016)

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette
NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette ($65.00 for 1.01 oz.) includes a highlighting/contour duo, bronzer, and four blushes. Three of the blushes are exclusive to the palette with one blush being part of an exclusive offering for Sephora VIB Rouge members (as a single). Strangely, the Paloma duo, which is available in the permanent range (see my original review here), was very chalky and clumpy in the palette–it felt smooth and soft to the touch, but it looked dry and chalky on the skin. I wish NARS (and other brands guilty of it) wouldn’t include one-size-fits-all contouring products; matte highlighters are also difficult to make inclusive (without the shimmer, it is hard to salvage one that really doesn’t work for one’s skin tone).

Paloma Highlight is a pale beige with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was sheer, chalky, powdery, and looked all those things on the skin. It’s harder to tell the wear on a shade like this on my skin tone, but based on how powdery the skin looked in the area I applied it, it seemed to wear about six hours. Chanel Jardin de Camelias (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Mythic (P, $59.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is darker (90% similar). YSL Rosy Contouring Highlight (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Highlight (Tarteist) (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever H104 (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Light (P, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). YSL Golden Contouring Highlight (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Nico (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Highlight (P, ) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Paloma Contour is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm rosy tones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a firmer consistency that was hard to blend out or build-up in coverage. It wore for six and a half hours on me. NARS Gienah Highlight (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Viseart Sculpting #2 (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is cooler (95% similar).

Laguna is a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. This version was firmer, sheerer, and harder to blend on the skin than many others that I have tried.

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cheek Studio I is a light-medium, cool-toned pink with a dusting of gold shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It looks primarily like a matte blush on the skin as the shimmer is fine, and as it is buffed into the skin, the finish is less flat-looking. The texture was lightly powdery but blendable, and the color lasted for seven hours. Makeup Geek First Love (DC, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Promise Ring (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Carousel (LE, $65.00) is less pigmented (90% similar).

Charlotte Tilbury The Climax (P, $40.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cheek Studio III is a medium-dark, copper-brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly dry texture that applied decently but needed some extra love to blend the color out evenly. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Peachtwist (P, $23.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Golden Hour (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Bronzed (P, $6.50) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC x Ellie Goulding Halcyon Days Palette

MAC Halcyon Days Face Kit
MAC Halcyon Days Face Kit

MAC Halcyon Days Face Kit ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes four Cream Colour Bases and one Blot Powder/Pressed. I am totally baffled by the inclusion of the Blot Powder, given that it is in shade “Medium Dark,” which will obviously not suit many skin tones. Why not a powder highlighter instead? Two of the Cream Colour Bases (Tint and Root) are part of the permanent range. If you’re unfamiliar with the Cream Colour Base formula, it’s pretty much a versatile cream-based product that can be sheer, buildable, creamy, or shimmery and can be used on the eyes, lips, or face (some shades have restricted usages). They can be used alone or over products (including powder) and are supposed to last for eight hours on face and body (with “lasting wear for hours on eyes”).

Medium Dark is a light-medium beige with a matte finish. It is similar to the color of my forearm, but it is lighter than face. The product itself is really, really chalky and looks powdery on my normal-to-dry skin. I’m not oily, so it was hard to determine if it was really helping combat that, but it seemed to extend the wear of my base by an hour or two.

Wished I Stayed is described as a “light cream pearl.” It’s a golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a lightweight, creamy consistency that glided on and blended out well. As a cheek highlighter, it lasted for seven hours on me. Stila Sending My Love Highlighter (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Shimmer (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Hot Sand (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Natasha Denona Moonstone (59M) (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Highlighter (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). bareMinerals The Brilliant Sunset (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tint is described as a “soft peachy brown with shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a soft pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, though the creamy, emollient consistency makes it easy to apply less or really diffuse it for sheerer coverage. The color lasted for seven and a half hours as a blush. LORAC Pink Bronze (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Accent (84) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Golden Sun (280) (P, $45.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Hard to Get (LE, $25.00) is darker (85% similar). Becca Hot Cocoa (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). MAC Love Joy (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Every Time You Go is described as a “creamy peachy pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It had semi-sheer to opaque pigmentation with a creamy, light-medium thick consistency–thicker than the other two–and has no shimmer. It blended out well on the skin and wore for seven and a half hours as a blush. Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #7 (LE, ) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Coral Flower (P, $49.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Angelique (190) (P, $45.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Holiday (P, $8.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #215 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Stardust (LE, ) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). NYX Apricot (P, $5.00) is less glossy (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Root is described as a “red taupey brown with shimmer.” It’s a dark, taupe brown with strong, gray shimmer with a warmer undertone. The more opaque it is applied, the grayer it appears, but the more it is sheered out, the browner it looks. It had semi-sheer to opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, emollient texture that glided and blended well on the skin without becoming patchy. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on my cheeks. MAC Pressed Amber (LE, $27.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Notorious (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set
Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes three palettes, plus a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. Each palette contains six eyeshadows and a face product (either a blush or bronzer). It’s a decent set with some hits and misses, and in general, there was just a dustiness/powderiness to some shades that resulted in either slightly sheerer color payoff or shorter wear time (things that a decent primer should fix quite well).

Amour is a pale pink with neutral-to-warm undertones. It had good pigmentation, was very lightly dusty, and lasted for seven hours. Anastasia Blanc (P, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Moi is a rich, chocolate brown with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen.

Jolie is a medium, gold-shimmered brown with warm, orange undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation at best, but it was a sheerer color, perhaps due to the stiffer/firmer texture (though it felt smooth in the pan).

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette ($39.00 for 0.65 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, two blushes, one highlighter, and one bronzer. The palette has $56.47 worth of eyeshadow, $15.33 worth of blush, $7.20 worth of highlighter, and $8.00 worth of bronzer for a total value of $87.00. I liked it, though it’s not quite as impressive as most of the Ready palettes are (they are nearly perfect), and one aspect that I really appreciated was that one row of eyeshadows was warmer and one row was cooler (though not truly cool-toned). The palette is also slim, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Natural is described as a “light buttery peach.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a semi-matte finish. It had so-so color coverage, but the texture was firmer and thinner compared to the other shades in the palette (and from the Ready line overall). The color lasted for 10 hours (Ready formula is marketed as a 12-hour formula). This version is a lot lighter and much less warm compared to the previous version I tried.

bareMinerals The Royal Court Ready Face Color Trio ($29.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a limited edition, slim set of cheek colors–highlighter, blush, and bronzer–for the holidays. I tried to calculate the value, but I’m not sure if these products are sold individually, so for the highlighter and bronzer, I used the Ready Luminizer Duo and the Ready Bronzer for calculations. There is $11.20 worth of highlighter, $15.33 worth of blush, and $11.20 worth of bronzer, which is a total of $37.73 (bareMinerals lists it as $49.50 value, which it may very well be, given the formulas aren’t quite translating).

Clear Radiance is a light, pale pink with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that didn’t emphasize pores and lasted for eight and a half hours on me (a little longer than eight-hours claimed).

Golden Gate is a muted, medium rosy pink with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and easy to blend on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading (bonus: bareMinerals only markets these as eight-hour wear, how reasonable!).

Warmth is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a blendable consistency, but I found the powder itself to be a little firmer in the pan than I’ve encountered previously in the Ready formula.
