Dusky Honey (BE323)

Shiseido Dusky Honey (BE323) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy brown with warm, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single stroke, though the texture was prone to separating around my lip lines and later on, the color settled into them as the color wore on. The texture felt more velvety and silicone-heavy than particularly wet or cream-like, so I was surprised it didn’t smooth out my lips more. This shade stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Colour Pop Barre Hopping Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was drier and moderately powdery in the pan, though it did not appear dry or chalky on my skin and blended decently. It just barely showed up on my complexion so it might work well for fairer compelxions as a soft bronzer but would likely get lost on deeper skin tones. The blush wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. - $38.10 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Lipsticks: I tend to gravitate toward lipsticks with some shine,
though I have loved a matte or two! I like a lightly to moderately hydrating formula that has little scent and has the decency to wear away evenly. Liquid lipsticks that crack or make my lips look shriveled are totally out!
Regular lipsticks that sink into all my lip lines noticeably are out! If I taste soap, see your way out!

Tarte Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette ($46.00 for 0.95 oz.) is a new palette for spring that features four bronzing powders and two highlighters. The formulas are described as “the blendability of a cream” with the “weightless wear of a powder” that has “12-hour” wear. The brand didn’t seem to callout pigmentation specifically, though their swatches show opaque coverage (and it’s more typical for these types of products to be pigmented than sheer without saying as much). If they’re the kind of bronzing tones that you go for, the palette was nice overall. I didn’t have any issues applying or blending out the powders, they lasted between eight and nine hours (which is solid wear, just not 12-hour wear as promised), and there was plenty of product.

Coloured Raine Just Peachy Focal Point Glowlighter ($25.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warmer, golden pearl. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin. The base of this appeared more like a cheek stain than a typical blush, which may have been partially the result of the creamier feel of the powder itself. I had no trouble blending and diffusing the edges of the highlighter (or blush, depending on your skin tone!) on my cheeks. The shimmer yielded a noticeable glow but didn’t accentuate my skin’s natural texture. On me, the highlighter started to fade after eight and a half hours of wear.
