Avalanche

Fenty Beauty Avalanche All-Over Metallic Powder Set ($99.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes seven shades in small, plastic jars with a twist-off lid and a small, plastic insert that sits on top of the opening to prevent product loss. They are small jars, which made them more fiddly for me personally as someone with larger hands/longer fingertips, but they didn’t seem overly prone to tipping over. These are best for someone who enjoys working with loose eyeshadow and will use these primarily as eyeshadow rather than as a cheek product as they’re easiest and more consistent in performance on the eyes.

The formula is supposed to have a “melt-worthy texture” that is “smooth” and uses “mega-fine pigments” that yield “high-impact” and “rich, blendable color.” They can be used as “eyeshadow, cheekbone highlight, blush, [dabbed] over lipstick.” The texture seemed finely-milled as one would expect of a loose powder, but I had a few shades that were clumpy in the jars, which I recommend de-clumping by using the end of a brush handle (the part without the brush itself) to swirl gently to break up the clumps. The shades were fairly blendable with some being more or less blendable, and in general, shades that seemed blendable as eyeshadow did not always blend out as easily on my cheeks (as a blush or highlighter).

The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with some being more medium in coverage, but buildable, while others were more opaque applied dry. Most of them intensified and were more opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The formula is called “metallic powder” but they were more of a pearl to frost finish; they’re not intensely metallic, which may or may not be a deal-breaker. They definitely can be dabbed onto the lips and blended by gently brushing a fingertip back and forth to add a subtle, pearlescent effect.

Sapphire

Huda Beauty Sapphire Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of shimmers and mattes with a blue theme. If you’re someone who tends to use a dampened brush, fingertips, or a glitter glue with their shimmers and doesn’t mind using an eyeshadow primer, I expect that the more original color scheme/types of shades may make it workable. I do think that it is a fussy palette and needs some patience/specific techniques and tools to work with. The mattes were dustier and not as pigmented as anticipated, while a few of the shimmers had less desirable textures that made them a challenge to use.

Devoted to Chili

MAC Devoted to Chili Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery red with warm undertones and asatin finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately emollient consistency that was comfortable to apply and to wear as it was lightweight and lightly hydrating. It took about an hour for it to wear down to a flat, matte finish (or blot lightly to get there faster). This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.10 oz. - $190.00 Per Ounce

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to feel "weightless" with a "blur of effortless soft-focus color." Per the brand, the formula "provides immediate and long-term hydration" while "blur[ring] lines and smooth[ing] lips" and having "zero-shine." They have a bit of shine and slip; I wouldn't call them zero-shine so much as very smooth and more like a natural or soft matte finish. Like any finish with slight shine, they did wear down to a more, flat matte finish within an hour or so of wear. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and velvety with a bit of slip (a little like a silicone primer to me) and was comfortable to wear with a non-drying to lightly hydrating feel.

The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque with deeper shades having more coverage. There were a few very light shades, which did not apply as evenly and had a tendency to catch on any imperfections on my lips, whereas the deeper shades went on more smoothly and looked more flattering on as they were less likely to emphasize texture. They lasted between two and a half and six hours with deeper shades, unsurprisingly, lasting longer than the ultra-light ones.

I personally found the scent of these to be noticeably different, both that it was sweeter and less vanilla-based but I also got a strong rubber scent that came through. The scent did not linger for long, so it wasn't something that I detected throughout the wear, but it had a strong, sweet taste that was present until it was gone. Other readers who have smelled the formula in person did not catch any rubber/off-putting scent (my husband thought it smelled weird, not bad per se, but couldn't be more specific), and when I went back to double check each shade, each one of mine still had that rubbery note.

Killawatt Foil

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Palette ($54.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring seven hues designed for highlighting the eyes and cheeks. Those who don’t find all the shades usable to highlight cheeks will be able to use those shades as eyeshadows. There were only two shades that I feel really stood out in the palette and were truest to the Killawatt formula: Stone Cold and Hunny Slope. Shades like Chillz, Scandal’ice, and Coppin Ice have larger sparkles/shimmer to them and less pigmentation, and I don’t think this was conveyed that well through the marketing on this. This is definitely a palette most suitable for someone who likes more sparkle and glitter in their products. Worth noting, the palette is thicker cardboard, which was unexpected compared to past Fenty palettes of similar size/price point.

Snowflushed

MAC Snowflushed Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a peachy-orange base with peach-to-pink shifting pearl and sparkle. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with half of a layer more. The texture was smooth, despite being a rather glittery shade, and dense, so a moderately dense brush and a medium hand worked best–it had the baked gelee-like texture that doesn’t have any powderiness, isn’t stiff so much as just denser in the pan. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and diffused along the edges, but the base color was fairly prominent so it added warmth and an orange-brown tone to my skin, along with a strong peach-to-pink shift, depending on the angle. Some of the sparkle/glitter migrated beyond my cheeks over the eight and a half hours it lasted for, though.

Formula Overview

$33.00/0.31 oz. - $106.45 Per Ounce

The Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula is supposed to give “the perfect glow to the skin” with a “creamy powder formula” that wears for “10 hours.” It’s a powder highlighter that I’d describe as a moderate to intense highlighter, and they come in varying hues with some that might work as highlighting blushes/bronzers are on some skin tones and true highlighters on other skin tones. In general, the formula is very pigmented, blendable, and wears around eight to nine hours on me.

Stars In Your Eyes

Charlotte Tilbury Stars In Your Eyes 12-Pan Eye Palette ($75.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette for the holidays that is broken into four “looks” with three shades featured in each. I was impressed by this palette, as the mattes were fantastic–pigmented, creamy, and blendable–and most of the shimmers performed well, though a couple seemed on the sheerer side (but the brand’s official swatches showed every shade was opaque).

The shade range is certainly something we’ve seen before, and it’s release alongside Urban Decay’s Naked Cherry invites immediately comparison, but the Stars in Your Eyes is still a bump up in price, even if it is significantly better in performance. As I’ve said in the past, I always welcome high-quality products, even if they seem “done” for those of us who have indulged already or who have been here for awhile.
