108 Burgundy

Make Up For Ever 108 Burgundy Star Lit Diamond PowderMake Up For Ever 108 Burgundy Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a reddish-copper base with blue-to-tea shifting sparkle/pearl. There was a noticeable shift at times, though I found it had the most noticeable shift as a cheek color and less of a shift as an eyeshadow (but very sparkling!). The texture felt like a mix of loose powder eyeshadow and glitter, so it didn’t feel finely-milled or silky as there was quite a bit of larger sparkles in it that gave it a more textured, drier feel. It had more semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation I used it dry and more medium to opaque coverage when I used it with a wet brush (depending on how much product I picked up). It worked best applied with a dampened brush or over a tacky base, like liquid foundation to use it as a cheek color or setting spray as an eye color. When I wore it alone as an eyeshadow, most of the color was intact after eight hours but there was some fallout. When I wore it with an adhesive spray, it lasted for eight hours with minimal fallout.

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.

That sure looks gorgeous as a blush! Crazy how it doesn’t appear glittery on your cheeks at all, just a beautiful somewhat duochrome berry blush. Makes me feel an urge to use my new Nars Blissful blush for a similar feel. Might just capture the fall-like cool, cloudy feel outside!

This is on my list. I saw Pompberry on youtube use this in an eye look and when she patted it over top of the look it made her eye look wet, it was a really neat effect.

They’re very fine – more micro-sparkle than flecks of sparkle or glitter (which is probably why this formula is actually eye safe!).
