Crème Brule

Danessa Myricks Crème Brule Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a darker pink with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage with a thin, slightly runny consistency that was still substantial enough to deliver full coverage without being prone to sheering out.

The product was quick to dry down, so one needed to work very quickly to apply and blend it out. The speed when working to blend and diffuse the product out was really critical and any mistakes were most apparent when the product was used as a blush. I really recommend using very little product and building up as needed when the end result is more sheer to medium in coverage.

It wore well for 10 hours with minimal fading as an eye and cheek product. It lasted for five and a half hours as a lip color, and it applied evenly, felt lightly tacky as it set but still somewhat flexible, and didn’t emphasize my lip lines/texture. The formula was lightly drying, more noticeably on my lips, but sustained usage of the Colorfix formula did result in my lids feeling a little drier as well.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.34 oz. - $52.94 Per Ounce

The formula is a cream product that is supposed to be "highly pigmented," "smudge proof," "waterproof, and "rapid drying." They're multi-purpose products that can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks (though note: the Foil finish includes plastic, or PET, glitter, which is technically not considered eye safe via FDA).

The key takeaway with this formula is that they really do mean "rapid drying" -- it is both a pro and a con, but you have to work quickly and efficiently when using this product on the skin where one might want to diffuse, spread, or blend out edges. While the brand is consumer-friendly, this product is particularly favored by makeup artists, and I did feel like there was a learning curve with them.

Some shades dry a little faster than others, and once they dry down, they are pretty smudge proof as marketed, so they don't want to be moved. Attempts to blend them out after they set often resulted in the product lifting off the skin. They are also, typically, quite pigmented, so one should exercise caution when applying to cheeks initially. I found that some of the more sparkly shades were sheerer.

The consistency was thin, lightweight, and a runnier cream, which meant that it was easy to squeeze out more product than desired from the tube for the uninitiated. After a few uses, I was able to dial in the pressure I needed to squeeze out the product and was consistently able to get what I needed from there.

Eyes

Depending on the intensity of the shade relative to your skin tone and whether you wanted a sheerer or more opaque end result, fingertips or synthetic brushes would be the primary tools. I found that I often preferred to put a little product on the back of my hand and then used either my fingertips (for more all-over application) or a brush (for more precise or opaque application). For precision and ease of use (as my fingertips are a little large compared to my eye size), I liked fluffy, synthetic brushes to diffuse the edges or sheer out the product.

Some of the Foil shades in particular tended to a little thicker and tackier when applied, and I wasn't always able to maneuver them evenly. They seemed to work better as an accent, like on the inner tear duct or on the middle of the lid.

The majority of shades were very pigmented, fairly blendable, and long-wearing, while most shades lasted 10 hours without fading, creasing, or flaking. I did feel like my eyelids got a little drier from wearing several of these shades for multiple days in a row.

Lips

They applied a lot better to lips than I anticipated, as I often find that multi-purpose products do well on one or two areas but rarely all of them. The product applied well with a fingertip or a lip brush, though for speed, I liked using a fingertip. The majority of the shades applied evenly, didn't emphasize my lip texture/lip lines, and were comfortable enough to wear.

The dry down was noticeable, but the product had light tackiness, though I didn't have issues with the color lift up. Despite having more of a liquid lipstick kind of dry down, it still felt lighter-weight and was flexible, which is what made it more comfortable to wear. I didn't see marks left on my glass, and they easily lasted through a cup of coffee. Most shades seemed to wear for six hours or longer on me.

The more sparkly shades with less opacity tended to be least even and felt tackier, and if I pressed and rubbed my lips together, it seemed like some product moved a bit.

Cheeks

As cheek application is often sheerer, rather than full coverage, applying the more pigmented shades to cheeks took some getting used it as one has to work quickly and start with way less than you need. I preferred using more feathery, duo-fiber brushes for really vivid shades to diffuse and apply product on cheeks better, but fingertips worked for getting an initial placement and then a clean brush was lovely for the blending portion.

The wear time on cheeks was comparable with eyes (so around 10 hours of good wear).

Editor's note: I don't know why I didn't make this connection previously (at some point, I was aware they were multi-use), as I bought these as cream eyeshadows for review. If I had to go back and do swatches of each shade on cheeks and lips, I might never, ever review (based on the volume of other products I have in the queue), so while I tested each shade for application, pigmentation, longevity, etc. for all three purposes, you will only find a skin swatch.

Desert Rose

Danessa Myricks Desert Rose Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a richer, medium-dark plum with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The product was incredibly pigmented where a little went a long way, so I’d definitely recommend squeezing out a small amount on the back of one’s hand or onto a metal palette to avoid over-applying.

The quick-drying nature of the formula (which was as marketed!) meant using less and building up made for the best results as blending quickly was critical to success, so over-application of product made blending difficult and there wasn’t a lot of room for course-correction. The color applied evenly to eyes, lips, and cheeks, and it was fairly blendable, particularly with fingertips when I used it as a blush. I preferred using a flat, synthetic brush to get the initial product onto my lid and then using a separate, clean fluffy brush to diffuse the edges.

It wore well for 10 hours before fading a little bit as an eye product, around nine hours as a cheek product, and five and a half hours as a lip product. As a lip product, it had a noticeable dry down that was lightly tacky–but didn’t lift up color when I pressed my lips together–and somewhat flexible; it felt lightly drying over time but was more comfortable than some liquid lipsticks.

Rustic

Danessa Myricks Rustic Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a darker, burnt orange with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff for any use one desired, so it was a shade that was best applied with less than one might think to avoid over-applying the product. The formula dried down very quickly, which was a claim advertised, and it was harder to blend out/diffuse if there was too much product applied initially within the time I had to play.

The consistency was lightweight, thinner but still pigmented and covered evenly, but it was the kind of thinness where it could run a little if applied to the back of one’s hand and held vertically. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours as an eye and cheek product–a little bit of fading–and around five hours as a lip product. When I applied it to lips, the product went on very evenly and didn’t separate around my lip lines, and while it dried down, it felt lightly tacky and somewhat flexible, but the formula was a little drying over time.

I’m not so sure that I could work at the warp speed necessary to get great results, so I would likely try with one “safe” shade first. I think Rustic or Creme Brulee would work in that capacity for cheeks in particular. Don’t think I’d be using them around my eyes, just cheeks and lips.

these looks so goooood. they’re almost juicy looking even though they’re matte. they just looks so plush and pretty.

I love all of these!

But Desert Rose is STUNNING!!! I’ve been eyeing up her Light Work palettes so if I take the plunge on those, Desert Rose will definitely be coming home with me 🙂

These work well on eyes, cheeks, and lips? I think it’s a first! I’m also looking for a matte cream or liquid e/s, so I hope the formula is consistent for other shades as well <3

Kinda want these.. Creme brule and Desert rose. I’ve been very much gravitating tonal looks with one shadow blown out and done eye looks.. mostly with brighter mid tones. Always matte, but sometimes use a mostly matching shimmer just above pupil.

Speaking of shimmer… Clionadh.. email announcement. Oy vey.

Do you have a favorite brush or application tips for these? I have creme brulee and I love the color but I struggle to get it to work because it dries so fast.

I’m usually not big on multi use products used on the lips, but Rustic looks like it could be a good dupe for my long sought-after Nars Linda 🤔

Creme Brulee is one of the ColorFix products I purchased last month (bought three) and have been very happy with them. I’ve found they blend quite well with other products like this from other brands, which I appreciate as It allows me to get multiple shades.
You need so little product, and I literally put a drop on my hand and work with a stiff brush them a fluffier one to blow out the edges above the crease.
I’ve not been brave enough to try on my cheeks LOL!
After seeing your great reviews on the multichromes, I wish I’d added that to my order!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
