B402

Make Up For Ever B402 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium orange with warm, red undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was moderately dense and needed slightly heavier hand (or denser brush) to pickup product. For the richness of the hue, I think that type of texture made it easier to use, since it was possible to build up coverage as well as diffuse it for a softer look if desired. The powder was blendable on the skin without losing its vibrancy. It wore well for nine hours on me.

Formula Overview

$23.00/0.17 oz. - $135.29 Per Ounce

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.

B306

Make Up For Ever B306 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with just a touch more product layered on top.

The texture was soft, smooth, and moderately dense but wasn’t too firmly pressed in the pan, so it was still easy to pickup with a brush and blend out on the skin. The blush started to look more natural in finish as I blended and buffed the powder into my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

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.

B216

Make Up For Ever B216 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, medium magenta with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented and had a finish that looked more luminous as it was buffed onto the skin, though it was never shimmery. The blush had a smooth, moderately dense consistency that was surprisingly blendable for such an intense shade; it wasn’t effortless, but it wasn’t a struggle at all. The color stayed vibrant for nine hours on my skin.

Radiant

Anastasia Radiant Blush Kit ($30.00 for 0.68 oz.) is a new, limited edition blush palette with four shades. There was nothing impressive about the formula as it was just too much work to blend out and nothing exceptional with respect to texture, pigmentation, or wear to justify spending three or four times longer blending out the blush, and the whole process is just worse over a base (like foundation) as you’ll have to be particularly careful to avoid lifting and disturbing the base.

Per the brand, it’s a “full pigment formula for buildable coverage,” which I interpret as that it is buildable to full coverage. It is also a “finely milled formula for seamless blending,” which is where I had more trouble typically–these were unforgiving when applied over bare skin or damp foundation. I had to have skin powdered heavily in order to get decent blendability out of most shades in the Blush Kits, though some were decent without extra tricks.

B206

Make Up For Ever B206 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It almost looked like strawberry ice cream–lighter but still quite pink. I did find that the shade darkened slightly on the skin after a few minutes, though.

The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable, though the powder was denser overall, so while there was no excess product kicked up in the pan, it did need a moderately dense blush or heavier hand to use. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.
