Fenty Beauty Unicorn Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a muted, medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. Applied to my skin, it seemed to go on a bit lighter overall with how it reflected light.

The texture was thin, definitely cream-to-powder where it felt more powder-like as soon as I started to apply it to the skin. It had just a bit of slip but needed to be warmed up for best application or else it did not apply as evenly or lifted up base products (if applied on top of them). The product definitely was most foolproof to use over bare skin, but it was workable over base with fingertips or a stippling brush, though it was harder to get even, pigmented coverage with a brush. This shade lasted for eight hours on me.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.25 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing with a “light-as-air,” “blendable” texture that “lives to be layered” and has "buildable, creaseproof" coverage. They twist-up and are medium-sized with a domed edge. I found that applying to my fingertips worked better than direct application, as it enabled me greater control over coverage level as well as placement, and if you tend to apply over foundation, then this will help keep the Match Stix cleaner, too. The texture was thin, and it did seem to go from a “cream” in the tube to a more powder-like product once on the skin. They were fairly blendable with a few being more sparkly with less visible base color, which may not be for everyone, and others had a more pearl-like sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. Most shades applied and blended out without lifting up foundation or pulling into pores (over bare skin), but the ones that did tended to have larger particles in them. They lasted between six and eight hours on me.

A problem I had throughout just swatching each shade on my cheeks for photos was that whatever was exposed was a bit dry, more powdery to the touch, and I felt like I had to really warm the product up and/or swipe it back and forth on the back of my hand to refresh the texture. This is not uncommon with drier, cream-based formulas, but it's still a downside and an area that could be improved upon. Some shades were very pigmented, others were medium and buildable, and a couple were sheerer.

Marc Jacobs The Wild One Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette ($99.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features 20 eyeshadows in a variety of finishes and colors.

First Impressions

The eyeshadows seemed consistent with the more recently released Eye-Conic Palettes–soft, blendable, pigmented–but my experienced showed that wear may tell a different story. Hen Party was unlike any finish I have seen from the brand; it was like loosely packed glitter, and it did not seem to have much in the way of binders or adhesive qualities, so I don’t have much hope for that one. There were a few of the less shimmery shades that had weaker pigmentation but seemed like they might be buildable in practice. Most of the shimmery shades were pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like feel to them but did not feel so dense that it would be difficult to blend out or use with a brush.

Fenty Beauty Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains two rose golds–one lighter, one deeper–and both are quite shimmery with high-shine finishes. This duo will be most suitable for someone who likes richer, more pigmented highlighters with metallic to glittery finishes and isn’t concerned when highlighters accentuate the skin’s natural texture. I felt the quality of the left side of the duo was better than the other duos.
