Lethal Cosmetics Neophyte Magnetic Face Powder Review & Swatches
Lethal Cosmetics Neophyte Magnetic Face Powder (Blush) ($14.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a rich, darker yellow with very strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage, which seemed slightly higher coverage than some other shades in the range.
It had a smooth, more velvety texture that wasn’t prone to powderiness in the pan but still picked up readily with both feathery and denser brushes. The blush applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges without becoming uneven. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

The formula is supposed to blend "effortlessly" and "build" to a "luminous matte" finish and "any intensity with ease." In general, they had medium, buildable coverage that easily built up to mostly opaque to opaque coverage.
Per the brand, they recommend "tapping" rather than swirling one's brush, which I'd agree with for picking up more buildable pigment--swirling or heavier motions could yield more opaque coverage in one go (which could be desired).
The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and not powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan, so the product picked up well with more feathery brushes as well as denser brushes.
As I applied the powder and buffed it into my skin, they had a more semi-matte to natural matte finish--not flat or dry but not overly shimmery either. They looked more "melted" on my skin, which gave them a better and more flattering finish applied. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading visibly.

Aw I like it a lot ! I’m wondering if it will show up on my NW47 skintone.
I’m sooooo tempted by this and Hybrid. I already own Tendril and love it so much. The strange and unusual never fail to attract me!
Excellent quality, but not something that would or could look too great on my peachy golden olive self! Unless I want to look even more sallow…
I would really love to know and see who can wear this color, I would wear it as an eye color, as a blush it wouldn’t look very good on my pale pinkish skin. I wouldn’t object to wearing it to go with a Halloween costume though.
A really editorial look, but the average makeup consumer probably won’t buy it. But I’m glad it’s out there in the makeup sphere!
