Holiday 2017

Anastasia Holiday 2017 Mini Liquid Lipstick Trio ($25.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains three, miniature-sized liquid lipsticks with two shades being new and exclusive to the set. They performed in line with the brand’s more recently released liquid lipsticks–pigmented, long-wearing, a bit drying–so if you’ve wanted to try the formula or typically enjoy it, the set is certainly worth considering as it offers a good amount of product for the price.

Value

A full-sized liquid lipstick retails for $20.00 and contains 0.11 fl. oz. or costs $181.82/oz. This set contains $43.64 worth of product.

Apres Ski Glow

Becca Apres Ski Glow Glow Face Palette ($54.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains two blushes, one bronzer, and three highlighters. Two shades–Icicle and Winter Berry–are new and exclusive to the palette, while the rest are available individually. I do not think that the quality of the powders in the palette is the same as the full-sized range; some perform worse but they felt different: drier, more papery. It’s always a shame when a brand changes up their formulas when they put them in a palette for the worse.

Love Game

NARS Love Game Man Ray Eyeshadow Palette (£45.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette exclusively for international retailers (non-US). It’s supposed to launch officially today, and I’ve spotted it on SpaceNK (UK) thus far. There were two shades in the palette that were disappointing, though one was more workable than the other; the rest were quite good and one of NARS’ better eyeshadow palette offerings. I definitely wish this one was making its way to the US, too!

Sasha

Tom Ford Beauty Sasha Boys & Girls Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. There was a very subtle pearl throughout the color but not enough to make it seem truly shimmery. It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, while the texture was lightweight, creamy without being heavy or thick, and comfortable to wear. There was slight color in my lip lines, though it did not seem noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Ultra-Rich Lip Color formula is supposed to have "full-coverage" and "high-shine" that "moisturizers lips instantly." The majority of the range had semi-opaque coverage with a few being sheerer and some with more full coverage. The finish was more luminous--shiny but not glossy or heavy--which meant they had moderate slip, so they tended to wear around four hours on me. There were some of the deeper shades (like reds) that lasted longer and left subtle stains behind. I found the formula to be lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.

Fetishized

NARS Fetishized Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark pinky coral with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. The finish was particularly lovely on this blush, as it appeared luminous and glowy without being visibly sparkly or so metallic that it emphasized my skin’s texture.

It had rich, opaque color payoff in a single layer, and it was the type of pigmentation level where a little went a long way so I recommend using a lighter hand to start and build up coverage as desired. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery or dusty in the pan. It was easy to apply and lasted for eight and a half hours.

Pat McGrath Major Red LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque pigmentation that drenched the lips in a single layer–I don’t even think a full layer would be needed as it was so pigmented. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and dense enough to fill in lip lines yet managed to feel lighter weight and comfortable on the lips. The color was still going strong after 10 hours of wear–the only difference was the shine had worn away by that point–but that was after latte, water, and two meals. More incredibly, my lips felt hydrated after all that continuous wear. It just might be one of my new favorite reds.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.14 oz. - $271.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "intense color payoff" with "comfort" and "rich hydration" that has a "satiny sheen." Of the shades I've tried, they are richly pigmented, long-wearing, incredibly comfortable to wear from start to finish, hydrating, and generally flattering on the lips. The texture was smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide across the lips with ease but never felt slippery or too clingy. Most shades performed exceptionally well, and while pricey, they at least lived up to a lot of the claims. There was no discernible scent or taste.
