107 Bronze

Make Up For Ever 107 Bronze Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) has a medium, coppery base (with warmer undertones) paired with flecks of gold and pink sparkle that give it a peach-to-pink shifting finish. Most of the time, it read “peachy-copper with pink sheen” when I wore it on my cheeks with a slightly warmer and cooler appearance as I moved or tilted my face. As I mention in the “formula overview,” this product worked best with some tackiness, whether patted over a cream eyeshadow, tacky base, liquid/cream foundation, or with an adhesive spray, which helped the micro-sparkles adhere better with less transfer/movement over time. The pigmentation was buildable and really depended on tool/application method and how much product one picked up (loose products are harder to be consistent with how “much” is picked up compared to a pressed eyeshadow).

When I used this dry as a cheek product, it applied fairly well and blended out nicely with visible sparkles but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. There was slight migration of the sparkles over time but not to a troublesome degree (where they went so far that it was a wonder how they managed the feat). When I used it dry as an eyeshadow, it had slight fallout when applied and continuous fallout when worn, and I found using it with a dampened brush (even just water) helped it go on more smoothly and have less fallout over time, though using it with an adhesive spray is your best bet for longer hold.

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.

Interesting how this looks far nicer in application compared to the arm swatches! Like, it seems like it would have applied in a very chunky glitter manner, yet it didn’t. If I didn’t have dupes, I may have been slightly tempted? Idk, though.
