103 Pink White

Make Up For Ever 103 Pink White Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) has a silvery-beige base that has a more dominant, pink-to-lavender shift from the shimmer and sparkle in it. On me, it read more iridescent, cool-toned pink than beige most of the time, both on eyes and on cheeks. The texture was full of sparkle, so there wasn’t much of a base color until it was really buffed onto the skin, and then it seemed like there was a subtle, pearlescent sheen coming through from the base pigment.

As one might expect, it’s not particularly easy to apply or to wear without some sort of adhesive spray, dampened brush, or tacky base. I think if you’re prepared to use one of those aforementioned items with this product, you won’t be disappointed, but it’s not much of a standalone product without getting moderate fallout over time. It was easiest to wear buffed onto my cheeks, as it melded with the skin there more than when I applied it to the inner corner, as I enjoyed noticeable fallout throughout the eight hours I wore it for (unless I used it with a setting spray). There was light sparkle migration over time but what I’d deem “acceptable” for a such a sparkle-heavy product. It had medium, buildable pigmentation depending on how it was applied and what it was applied over.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.08 oz. - $325.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable, blendable, [and] light-reflective" and can be used on the eyes, face, and body. The brand says that they can be applied with "brush or fingers," and while they say that "for cleaner application and stronger hold, wet brush with" an adhesive spray, it does imply it can be used without for less clean/less hold. The powders seem as finely-milled as they're going to get, but they have micro-sparkle and sparkle to them so they have a drier, almost loose glittery texture overall. Some shades seemed to have a stronger base color that came through than others, which were more glittery overall with a sheerer or transparent base.

I wore several of them on cheeks as well as eyes with most shades performing decently without an adhesive spray/tacky base, but the wear time was between six and eight hours with light to moderate fallout (depending on the shade) on eyes and eight hours on cheeks with some sparkle migration over time. I definitely would recommend using the product with an adhesive spray for the "cleaner application and stronger hold" the brand says it would result in.

Thankful that I have ColourPop’s New Magic SSS, because I would definitely say that it is close enough for me! About the only time I do use it is on the rare occasion that I want something that blingy on my inner corner tear duct.

Hi Nancy πŸ‘‹,
I have noticed how often you comment and give really great feedback to Christine! πŸ‘What are your favorite innner corner preferred highlight type products? Thank you. I will share a couple of mine πŸ˜‰β˜ΊοΈ
Urban Decay moon dust in Cosmic, MAC Nylon, shroom, dazzlelight. I would like to try more cream or liquid shadows on the inner corner because my eyes are not looking so great with powder anymore 😝. Take care 😊

Hi Christine. This look is so good 😊. Is this product part of the set that is available on Sephora? And have you tried the other colors if so? Would you compare it to any other product? I read that you thought more glitter than shimmery, I’m more of a shimmer person. Top recommendation?
Thank you for your time πŸ’“

So Make Up For Ever has a whole series of products that start with “Star Lit,” but there are a few types. I don’t have the set from the holidays; I bought all of mine individually. They are the “Star Lit Diamond Powders.” You can see all of the ones MUFE has here: https://www.makeupforever.com/us/en-us/search/star%20lit

I’ve reviewed the Star Lit Powders (no “Diamond” in them) previously (when they launched), which are much finer and more shimmery than sparkly/glittery. I don’t have the Star Lit Glitters. From what the brand has written, they have small and large-sized glitters. I’m not familiar with those myself, as I don’t think they are eye-safe and end up being a product type that doesn’t make sense to review.

Based on my understanding of the range, “Star Lit Diamond Powder” has larger sparkle/micro-glitter but they show the “eye” icon on the label, which seems to be MUFE’s signal that it safe to be used on the eyes.
