1 Frozen Silver

Make Up For Ever 1 Frozen Silver Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a light, bright silver with cooler undertones and a frosted sheen. I’m not entirely sure why they went with the “Frozen” label here, as all of the other “Frozen” shades were duochromes but this one wasn’t. It does, though, brighten well as it was lighter and brighter in hue. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, and then opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush (just using water). The consistency was soft, blendable, and easy to work with on the skin and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade wore well for eight 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. 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).

6 Frozen Turquoise

Make Up For Ever 6 Frozen Turquoise Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a cool, white base with icy lavender to teal shifting shimmer. It had a strong, nearly metallic sheen but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture as the particle size was so fine. It worked beautifully as a cheek highlighter, as it reflected light well and maintained its shift, and it also worked well along the inner tearduct to brighten the eyes. The consistency was soft, velvety, and finely-milled, which made it easy to blend out. It had sheerer, buildable coverage applied dry and more opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours on me.

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.

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.

11 Golden Orange

Make Up For Ever 11 Golden Orange Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a slightlty muted, medium-dark coral with warm, golden shimmer and a stronger pink undertone. It had sheer coverage applied dry, which intensified to nearly opaque coverage when applied damp. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable on the skin (both wet and dry), and it was somewhat buildable–up to medium coverage–dry when I applied it to the cheeks, but it was less buildable on the eyes without a dampened brush or primer. It wore well for eight hours on my cheeks and seven and a half hours 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).
