Sunset

Kevyn Aucoin Sunset The Neo-Blush Trio ($38.00 for 0.20 oz.) blends to a medium coral with warm undertones and a golden sheen. All three shades had good pigmentation, blendability, and long-wear whether used individually or swirled together. For a gradient effect, I recommend applying the middle shade first onto the apples of the cheeks, then using the left shade to highlight, and finish by deepening the lower edge of the blush (almost like a contour) with the right shade.

Rose Cliff

Kevyn Aucoin Rose Cliff The Neo-Blush Trio ($38.00 for 0.20 oz.) blends to create a medium pink with warm undertones and a faint, golden sheen. It was richly pigmented used together or individually with a luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. If you’re someone who loves a pinky-coral, this is a good way to achieve the effect as the middle and right shades are pinker and the left shade is more orange, which makes it easy to control how warm the overall blush effect is. For a more gradient-like application, I recommend starting with the center shade on the apples of cheeks, then using the left shade to highlight and lighten on cheekbones, and finally using the right shade to deepen almost as a “contour.”

Pink Sand

Kevyn Aucoin Pink Sand The Neo-Blush Trio ($38.00 for 0.20 oz.) blends together to create a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It could also be applied more in a gradient on the skin as it appeared in the pan, which gave it a stronger pink hue on the apples of my cheeks. The texture as a whole was soft, blendable, and easy to work with and had good pigmentation in a single layer. Together, it wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Individually, two shades were pigmented but one was more medium coverage (but buildable), and all three wore for at least eight hours on me.

Grapevine

Kevyn Aucoin Grapevine The Neo-Blush Trio ($38.00 for 0.20 oz.) blends together to create a bright pop of fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable that blended out fairly easily, though it wasn’t quite effortless. Swirled together, the color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Two of three shades were silky and finely-milled, but the deepest shade was drier to the touch and was the harder shade to blend out of the three. The gradient effect is definitely something doable on the cheeks, too, and it was quite pretty layered that way; I recommend starting with the center shade, then highlighting with the left shade, and deepening the overall color (almost as a contour) with the right-most shade.

Sin

Urban Decay Sin Afteglow Cheek Palette ($39.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-pan cheek palette that includes three blushes and three highlighters. Within the palette, there are three shades that are new (Kiss Off, PSA, and Spotlight) are new and the other three are from the brand’s permanent range. I find that Urban Decay’s cheek products tend to be quite pigmented, though they are supposed to be sheerer and more buildable, so as long as one is comfortable with more pigmented cheek products and has need for the shades in this palette, I could see it working out well.

Mermaid Glow

Colour Pop Mermaid Glow Mini Face Duo ($10.00 for 0.22 oz.) consists of a peach-orange blush and a warm, yellow gold highlighter. The two definitely complement each other, and the matte finish of the blush worked to create a more buildable shimmer level when adding the highlighter on top. I actually prefer this size for ColourPop’s cheek colors as their normal size is extremely large (relative to industry averages), too.
