106 Grenny White

Make Up For Ever 106 Grenny White Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) shifts from lavender-pink to flashy, greenish-gold with a sparkling, shiny finish. It looked more gold and green than it did pink or lavender on me most of the time; at certain angles, I could see the pink coming through as more of a base color. It had buildable pigmentation, which was largely in the application method, but it was easy to get sheer coverage or get more semi-opaque to opaque coverage.

When I used it as an eyeshadow, I used a pencil brush to pat and push it onto my lower lash line, and it appeared more green-gold and built up to opaque coverage. The wear was decent with migration and slight fallout over an eight-hour period, though less than anticipated based on the large amount of sparkle in it. I would highly recommend using an adhesive spray or glitter adhesive with it, though, for better coverage and wear.

When I used as a highlighter, it appeared a little more like a aqua-green with a subtle shift to green-gold most of the time, and again that lavender-ish base only came through at certain angles when I went looking for it. The highlighter buffed well onto my cheeks, which are more normal than normal-to-dry in skin type, so I think the natural oils on my skin helped keep the loose highlighter from falling right off my cheeks. It wore well for eight hours with slight sparkle migration over time.

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.

Puts me in mind of a very high-octane version of MAC Vex at first glance. But it lacks that much more noticeable shiftiness of the green vs pink lavender base that makes Vex so interesting and fun to use in a look. This is not to say that I don’t like Grenny White, just wish that the shift was a bit more visible.
