Fenty Beauty Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains a light, pearly biege and a warm, metallic gold. The left side had a more subtle finish, which sat well on the skin, while the right side was more intense in coverage as well as finish, and there was some accentuate of my skin’s texture.

Tarte Buried Treasure Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.37 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette with ten shades in various warm, neutral tones.

First Impressions

The palette is supposed to have a “creamy powder formula” that will “cut your blending time in half” and “primes lids for payoff.” The consistency was dense but softly pressed, so there was some excess product that kicked up in the pan, but it adhered more smoothly to the skin than expected. There were some shades that were a little looser and more shimmery, and they did not seem to go on as evenly without a primer as one might want. The formula seemed better than the average Tarte eyeshadow for a holiday palette, but I generally find their mega-palettes to be more prone to problems than smaller ones like this palette. The shades themselves seemed fairly dupable, and the varying sizes of the pans may not work for all.

Too Faced Peach Berry Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a muted, medium plum with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-paque pigmentation in two to three layers.

The consistency was thin, a real hybrid between cream and powder as it did not feel that wet or emollient in the pot, and as soon as the product touched skin, it seemed to feel quite powder-like. This particular shade was somewhat prone to sinking into the skin and making the area seemed dotted, as if the color filled my pores in places, which made it difficult to smooth, even coverage that was actually flattering to wear. It applied slightly more evenly over a base, but it then lifted the base product somewhat, so it created patchiness and clumpiness. The blush lasted for six hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.44 oz. - $68.18 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "cream-to-powder blush" that has "buildable color" and a "creamy, velvety texture" paired with a "radiant-matte finish." The consistency felt creamy to the touch, but it also felt a little powdery. It had a candy-coated shell initially--very shiny--but after one or two uses, the texture looked more matte and felt a lot drier. It seemed almost as if it was drying out over time, so ultimately, it felt more like a powder going on most of the time.

The texture was thinner and while it was no trouble to diffuse the product across the skin, it did not do so that evenly, and I noticed a lot of color that seemed to sit in my pores (like dots of deeper color). The coverage was more buildable when applied with a fingertip, but it was a challenge to get more coverage that was still blended as the color seemed to disappear as I blended it out (even just a little). The only way I could manage decent application was patting color on the apples of the cheeks with fingertips and lightly pressing to blend, and then going back with a bit of foundation actually blend out the edges. The wear was short end on bare skin at six to seven hours.

Over foundation, they were worse, as they lifted liquid foundations a lot, which resulted in uneven coverage and some unevenness in overall texture, too, as the cream-to-powder formula caused clumping with my liquid foundations (I tried three different ones with this blush formula).

Becca Apres Ski Glow Collection Eye Lights Palette ($45.00 for 0.35 oz.) is limited edition holiday palette that contains seven eyeshadows based on the brand’s famous Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powders (their powder highlighters).

First Impressions

The texture of the eyeshadows felt drier and thinner with loose shimmer, and frankly, they lacked the creaminess of the powder highlighters they sought to emulate. From the brand’s description, it sounded like the formula was modified to be an eyeshadow, but that drier texture just made it difficult to apply the colors evenly or to maintain opaque coverage. They were more prone to sheering out and fading more quickly as a result, though they improved by using a dampened brush. I did find the eyeshadows to be blendable overall. The shades were fairly similar to their powder highlighter counterparts.
