Star Scene

NARS Star Scene Wet/Dry Cheek Trio ($42.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio that features a warm, peachy-gold highlighter and two coral blushes. All three shades hare semi-opaque to opaque coverage, which was the “downside” to the product as they’re supposed to be “sheer-to-buildable” and can be used wet for a “high-impact effect” (though the latter seemed more with respect to the finish, e.g. the glow).

As I mentioned in my review of Hustle, I haven’t found that this formula is all that sheer applied dry, and they certainly will intensify in color and finish when applied with a wet brush. The formula is a denser, firmer type–like a gel-powder hybrid–that works best with moderately dense brushes (e.g. fan brushes aren’t ideal). The upside is that they’re not powdering, and the powders tend to “melt” when applied to skin, which gives them a smoother, more skin-like finish.

We hope you'll consider supporting Temptalia by shopping through our links below. Thanks!

Instant Replay

Instant Replay is a brighter, light-medium gold with warm, peach undertones and a soft sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, denser texture that had no powderiness but still blended out easily on my skin. I’d recommend using a denser, more blush-like brush to pick up product as the texture is more firmly-pressed in the pan–in a way that is consistent with this type of formula. The highlighter lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

-

They’re not listed as part of the Dual Intensity formula, though they felt a lot like it (firmer but not stiff, a little dry to the touch but very blendable and don’t appear dry or dusty on the skin), and the description of the formula was similar–use dry for “shimmering veil of second-skin color” or wet for a “high-impact glow.” All three shades were quite shimmery applied dry, and they were metallic when applied with a damp brush. I’d disagree with these being “sheer shimmer” or “second-skin color” in any way dry–all three were mostly opaque to opaque dry, which is where the palette fell “short.”

Divine

Divine is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The texture was firmer, denser without any powderiness, but it wasn’t stiff to work with as the powder blended out easily on my skin. The caveat is that a denser brush works better with this type of formula, though. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.16 oz. - $187.50 Per Ounce

From NARS’ website, their blush formula is described as “beautifully pigmented” and “soft [and] blendable.” NARS' blushes, since they've been released in such a massive range of shades over the years, can vary from shade to shade to some degree. Most shades are pigmented with firmer, slightly stiffer consistencies that can also run on the thinner side, which allows greater control when picking up product but some of the more matte shades could be a bit more blendable or easier to work with.

Some of the more newly-released shades have softer, more yielding textures that are a bit creamier and are easier to blend out, though most of NARS' blushes are fairly blendable. The wear typically ranges from eight to nine hours with a few shades falling above or below this range.

Hard Party

Hard Party is a medium, pinky coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The color payoff was nearlyopaque in a single layer, so it was quite a bit above the “sheer-to-buildable” it was described (for dry application). The powder was smooth to the touch, dense and firmer in the pan, but it picked up well with a moderately dense brush and blended out the product beautifully on my skin. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Deborah

Tom Ford Beauty Deborah Lips & Girls Soft Shine Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deeper berry with cooler undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had medium color payoff in a single pass, which was as described. The texture felt lightly emollient, so it glided across my lips comfortably but didn’t feel slippery during wear nor did it feather or bleed past my lip line.

The color went on evenly for the most part, but there was a bit of patchy color along the inner area of my lips, which wasn’t as noticeable in person as it appeared in photos. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The newest Girls launched with a "Soft Shine" finish but are under the Lip Color umbrella, though it's unclear exactly what is to be expected based on the finish. Given that Tom Ford already has a sheer finish, it seems more likely to be a shinier version of the cream finish, and based on the shades I've seen, means a bit of shimmer/luminosity, too. (If and when I see official information about the finish, I'll be sure to update the overview and ratings accordingly, if necessary.)

The formula seemed to have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, and the shades that fell under opaque coverage seemed to have a subtle translucency to them that yielded a luminous finish--lighter weight, shiny with light glossiness, and gave the illusion of fuller lips for me. The consistency was lightweight, emollient without being overly slippery, and comfortable to apply and to wear. They had decent wear ranging between three and five hours and felt lightly to moderately moisturizing while worn. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Andrea

Tom Ford Beauty Andrea Lips & Girls Soft Shine Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, deeper pink with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, when it was designed to have medium, buildable coverage–so it was a bit “over” pigmented depending on what you wanted.

The creaminess of the texture ensured a smooth, glide-on application, and for as emollient as it was, the product applied evenly on my lips, but there was noticeable product that sank into my lip lines. It wasn’t noticeable until the end of wear, though. This shade stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt hydrating while worn.

Jackie

Tom Ford Beauty Jackie Lips & Girls Soft Shine Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage (but it was supposed to be medium, buildable) that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips in a single, fluid stroke.

The texture was creamy, lightweight, and smooth without being too emollient or too slippery, so it had good adhesion but was still comfortable to wear. It wore well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Now that I’ve managed to thoroughly review all three volumes of the Anastasia Norvina Pro Pigment Palette series, here’s a short ‘n’ sweet ranking of them from best to worst. It’s a bit more like a ranking from workable to mediocre as Vol. 1 reviewed the best with a B-rating, which ended up to be consistent with my experience across the other two volumes.

The matte pink/red/orange shades seemed to apply better than other colors, like green and blues. The matte eyeshadows were inconsistent; they were often quite pigmented but then sheered out (due to powderiness) or they would erase shades near-to or underneath (though it wasn’t all matte shades that did this).

The shimmers were a mixed bag between the volumes, and they worked better with a dampened brush. Some shades were pigmented, others were drier/dustier, and a few were stiffer or sheerer. I didn’t feel like they improved substantially over primer, but your best bet would be using a more hydrating base (whether a creamy or stacky base or something else) rather than anything thin, translucent, or more matte. (Anastasia’s primer worked terribly for me with these palettes, but it is extremely drying for me to begin with, so I wasn’t surprised.)

For more in-depth information on the formula’s inconsistencies, please read my Vol. 2 review. For transparency, I purchased Vol. 2 and Vol. 3, while Vol. 1 was a press sample.
