Darya

Natasha Denona Darya Diamond & Blush Palette ($89.00 for 1.50 oz.) contains six shades–two cream formulas, four powder formulas–in an assortment of finishes, textures, and shades. The palette is designed to be layered, though they can all be worn alone. I really enjoyed the palette, but I don’t expect it to be the most functional or practical purchase. The top row has a clear, plastic lid that is supposed to keep them from getting powder in them; and the third shade (on the right), while powder, is very dense, so there wasn’t any excess product kicked up when I used it.

The palette really did yield an extremely high-shine, almost editorial-level finish on the cheeks that was dewy, luminous, but metallic and sparkly, too. I felt like I was beaming all day long, and I was happy to find that layering all six as the brand instructed actually lasted all day long, too. I’m fortunate to see and test a lot of products each year, and there was something about how the palette came together on the skin that made my heart go pitter-patter, which doesn’t happen all that often, so this will definitely be a palette I’ll keep in reach for those rare days where I’m not testing a new cheek color!

Hourglass Pink Flash Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick

Pink Flash

Hourglass Pink Flash Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light pink with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage (up to semi-opaque), and it was the sheerest shade in the range that I tried. The consistency was incredibly lightweight with some slip–enough to feel like a cream-based product, but it never felt too slippery or greasy on my skin. It dried down somewhat, but it never fully set and yet still managed to wear for a solid eight hours over bare skin. The highlighter blended out easily along the edges and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

Formula Overview

$42.00/0.21 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "long-wearing" that feels "weightless" on the skin. It is supposed to have a glow that is "seamless" and creates a "flash of light" and "intense payoff." It's a cream highlighter with a smooth, thin, and very lightweight consistency that has a touch of tackiness and never fully dries down on the skin, but it did not slide around during the day like I worried it might. It could be applied directly from the tube, but I did prefer using my fingertips to pat it onto the areas I wanted, as it made it easier to build up and diffuse along the edges. When applied from the tube onto the skin, it was definitely intense and opaque in a single layer, as described. There was a softly luminous sheen from it being a cream texture, but there was also a lot of shine from the shimmer, too. I found that none of the five emphasized my skin's natural texture, and they were easy to blend on bare skin as well as over foundation (liquid). They lasted around eight to nine hours on me before starting to get a touch patchy.

Gold Flash

Hourglass Gold Flash Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was a “cooler” gold compared to Champagne Flash, which was almost orange-toned in comparison. The cream highlighter had a lightly emollient consistency that gave it enough slip to feel and blend like a cream highlighter but not enough to feel greasy or be prone to moving during the day. It didn’t fully dry down, but it stayed in place for almost nine hours on me before breaking down a bit. It had rich color payoff in a single stroke from the tube and was easy to blend out along the edges on bare skin as well as over foundation.

Champagne Flash

Hourglass Champagne Flash Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. The finish was lightly luminous in a dewy way, but it had the high-shine finish of a more metallic highlighter, too. The texture was lightly emollient without feeling greasy, wet, or heavy on the skin, but it was still easy to diffuse and blend out over bare skin. I had no trouble patting it on top of liquid foundation either as it did not lift up my base. It had opaque coverage in a single stroke from the tube. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before wearing away noticeably.

Moon Glow

Bobbi Brown Moon Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, moderately dense powder consistency.

The powder applied well with feathery brushes as well as denser ones, and the product applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with little effort, and produced a strong sheen on my cheekbones that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Bronze Flash

Hourglass Bronze Flash Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, brown undertones and a golden shimmer. The consistency was incredibly smooth, almost like a lip balm–thin, lightly emollient but not greasy or heavy on the skin–and easy to work with on bare skin and patted on top of (liquid) foundation. It was opaque in a single layer, but it was easy to apply less using a stippling brush or fingertips (the latter was my preferred method for application). This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
