Mode to Modern

Laura Mercier Mode to Modern 4-Piece Caviar Stick Set ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition set featuring four, miniature-sized jumbo eyeshadow pencils. All four shades can be purchased individually if that is preferred. The Caviar Stick formula is supposed to have “easy application with “long-lasting color” that “blends and layers beautifully onto the lids with rich pigment-payoff.” This year’s set includes two matte shades and two shimmers. All our shades were richly pigmented and long-wearing with textures being creamy and non-tugging.

Value

A full-sized Caviar Stick retails for $29.00 and contains 0.05 oz. or costs $580.00/oz. This set contains $69.60 worth of product.

Lily

Tom Ford Beauty Lily Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, silvery white with cool undertones and a fine pearl finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage (up to medium coverage) with a lightly creamy, thin, and emollient texture. The color went on somewhat evenly but was prone to settling into my lip lines. It lasted for two and a half hours but was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Lip Color Sheer formula is supposed to have a "semi-sheer effect" with a "creamy" and "hydrating" formula. They are a sheerer lip color, which may or may not be one's cup of tea; if you are looking for pigment, look elsewhere, but if you're someone who likes sheerer coverage, lightweight, hydrating textures, then it might be a formula for you. There are several shades in the range that have a more transformative effect, as they contain a lot of shimmer/sparkle or have a more duochrome or iridescent-like finish. There are others, typically deeper, richer hues (reds, berries, etc.) that are more medium coverage. The wear ranged a lot from as short as two hours to as long as five hours but most wore around three hours. The formula is lightly hydrating with a very lightweight feel on the lips. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.

My Little Pony

Colour Pop My Little Pony 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette with 12 shades in a variety of hues. The palette felt a bit divided between warmer tones of pink and orange and cooler tones of silver and teal. The color combination is fun and makes one have to get creative in pairing shades together. I wish the quality of each shade was higher, though, as there were two real misses in the palette. For the price point, it wouldn’t make me steer clear, but I know ColourPop can do better!

Colour Pop Dream Castle Ultra Glossy Lip ( for oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia with subtle, cool undrtones and flecks of violet, gold, and red sparkle and finer pearl. It had good pigmentation in a single layer that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, mostly non-sticky, and felt smooth on the lips, which made it comfortable to wear. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

Colour Pop Lemon Drop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark lavender purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer that applied evenly across the lips. The liquid lipstick was smooth, thin, and spreadable over my lips, but it was slightly uneven when I looked in the close-up photos, though I did not notice any unevenness in person. It wore well for six hours and was non-drying.

Eye for Elegance

Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) contains six liquid eyeshadows–three with a shimmer finish and three with a glitter finish. I was pleasantly surprised by the color payoff, ease of application, and wear of the Shimmer & Glow formula. The Glitter & Glow shades performed much like past shades have in the same formula, which is to say largely dependent on the strength of the base color against the size of the sparkles, though for anyone who is after a glitter eyeshadow for layering, I imagine they are nice enough.

Value

A full-sized Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow retails for $24.00 and contains 0.15 fl. oz. or costs $160.00/oz. I have not seen the Shimmer & Glow available individually but would expect a similar price point and amount. From that estimation, the set contains $67.20 worth of product.
