Icy Nude/Pink-Champagne

Natasha Denona Icy Nude/Pink-Champagne Mini Diamond & Glow ($19.00 for 0.141 oz.) includes a highlighter and blush, both of which originally appeared in the Darya palette. I found that the color/finish was similar to the originals, though the texture of the blush wasn’t quite as soft and creamy by touch (but applied and blended out the same), while the texture of the highlighter was a very slightly creamier. The pans are like oversized eyeshadows, so if you tend to use medium to large-sized, fluffier brushes, you may find the pans too small. A tapered highlighter brush fit well within the pan, and the blush brushes I tend to use fit as well, though they’re a little smaller (by preference) than “average” would be my guess.

Crème de la Crème

Colour Pop Crème de la Crème Pressed Powder Highlighter Quad ($18.00 for 0.44 oz.) includes four powder highlighters, which are best characterized as more subtle to moderate highlighters; they’re not over-the-top at all (definitely less intense than most of their powder highlighters I’ve tried thus far). They’re on the lighter side, so they’ll work best for fairer complexions or layered over stronger blushes to give them more a shift but not tons of shimmer, but I’d be curious to hear from those with medium and deeper complexions on how these red. The texture on these was odd; they felt like a drier (almost dried out!) cream-based product rather than as smooth and creamy as their powder highlighters but not at all like their Super Shock Highlighters. They went on better than I expected, and the overall performance was there, but the texture caught me off guard.

Dream Sequence

Colour Pop Dream Sequence Super Shock Highlighter Palette ($18.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring two glittery highlighters and two more pearly highlighters. All four performed well with pigmentation that was as described (more opaque with fingertip application, more buildable with brushes), were easy to apply and blend out, and stayed on for a solid 10 hours. These shades can also be purchased individually (in pots).

Holiday 2018

Fenty Beauty Holiday 2018 Match Stix by the Dozen ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) contains 12 miniature-sized Match Stix with five shades from the permanent line and seven new shades. I reached out to the brand multiple times trying to find out whether the new shades were going to be added to the permanent range in the future or if they were limited edition and exclusive to the set, but I wasn’t able to get an answer. The packaging for the set was similar to the Mattemoiselle 10/10 set (which I was able to get confirmation about; those new shades will be added in the future) and not the limited edition, holiday sets, so here’s hoping they will be added in the future. The formula was consistent with the permanent range–medium to full coverage, fairly blendable, a drier, more powder-like finish on the skin. Some shades were drier, sheerer, or harder to blend out, which was how the permanent range was for me as well.

Each Match Stix contains 0.10 oz. of product, and a full-sized Match Stix contains 0.25 oz. and retails for $25.00 or $100.00 per ounce, which gives the set a total value of $120. It includes a roll-up case that they can be stored in. Worth nothing, the miniature Match Stix are not magnetic, whereas the full-sized ones click together for easy hunting in one’s bag (per the brand at launch).

Heartbreaker

NARS Heartbreaker Holiday 2018 Cheek Trio ($42.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three blushes from the brand’s permanent range. Oddly, the brand’s often-released Orgasm blush fell short here; it was firm and stiff to work with, heartbreaking really… Luster was dustier in the palette than it has been in its standalone format but was easy to work with, just not quite the same in finish. Amour seemed fairly consistent with the last version I have, though.

Vol. 4

Hourglass Vol. 4 Ambient Lighting Edit Palette ($80.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday offering that contains four existing shades and two new, exclusive shades (Filtered Bronze Light and Luminous Glow). The powders performed consistently with other Hourglass powders, so those who enjoy these palettes will likely enjoy this one, too, if the included shades work for your skin tone.

The palette contains $10.51 worth of Ambient Lighting Powder, $5.13 worth of Ambient Lighting Bronzer, $20.27 worth of Ambient Lighting Blush, and $9.50 worth of Metallic Strobe Lighting Powder for a total value of $45.41. If you expect to use most of the powders but don’t usually finish products or often travel, it might be “worth” it to you, though typically palettes like these offer more for your money (since you are buying in “bulk” in a way) or else aren’t nearly so drastic in the difference between value and price.
