Sephora Reckless, Success Story, My Rules Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Reckless (31) Sephora Reckless (31) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines or lip texture. The texture felt lightweight, creamy with moderate slip, and more like a lipstick-lip balm hybrid with how it felt like it melted a bit as I held it to my li...

Sephora Me First, High Heels, Dream Bigger Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Me First (38) Sephora Me First (38) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark burgundy with moderate, warm undertones paired with a glossy, cream finish. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage that applied decently, but it could have been more even and less prone to sinking into fine lip lines. It didn’t seem to emphasize my lip lines, but it looked a bit spider web-like as it splintered into all the ...

Sephora Primal Instinct & Polar Lights #Lipstories Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Primal Instinct (77) Sephora Primal Instict (77) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep yellow with strong, warm orange undertones with a hint of brown paired with a cream finish that had a moderate shine to it. The color was between orange and yellow, but it was lighter and yellower than most oranges… and there aren’t that many yellow lipsticks out there to compare it to. The texture was creamy, smooth, and lightweight...

Shiseido Volcanic, Firecracker, Lantern Red VisionAiry Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Volcanic (218) Shiseido Volcanic (218) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark orange-red with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage applied evenly in one layer and delivered nearly opaque pigmentation. The texture felt lightweight and creamy as it skated along my lips comfortably, though some of that slip disappeared as the product “set” a bit so it didn’t slide around durin...

Fenty Beauty True Neutrals (1) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

True Neutrals (1) Fenty Beauty True Neutrals (1) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette that had three shimmery shades and three matte shades. It was a mixed bag–nothing bad enough to be a real miss but there’s no shortage of neutral palettes on the market, so it not having more consistent, higher performance is surprising. ...

Fenty Beauty Deep Neutrals (3) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Deep Neutrals (3) Fenty Beauty Deep Neutrals (3) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains four matte eyeshadows and two shimmer eyeshadows to create a deeper, richer take on neutrals. As has been true of most of the shades in the brand’s palettes, the mattes performed best with good pigmentation that blended out well and had solid wear. The shimmers were better in this palette than some of the oth...

Chanel Miroir d’Eau Multi-Use Top Coat Review & Swatches

Miroir d'Eau Chanel Miroir d’Eau Multi-Use Top Coat ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a translucent, iridescent pink with a glossy finish that is designed for use on “eyes, lips, and cheeks” for an “iridescent shine.” The effect is most noticeable on eyes or cheeks (skin) rather than lips, as I felt like the dewy finish got lost on lips and contributed very little iridescence/sheen. The base appeared more translucent, while the iridescent ef...

The lightest shade (#2) was sheerer and would be more of a brightening or layering shade (based on opacity and type of color), while the other shades were p...

Fool's Gold Urban Decay Fool’s Gold Moondust Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper sparkle throughout. It had sheer coverage applied dry, semi-sheer coverage applied with fingertip, and semi-opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and thin without being stiff or difficult to work with. It sat smoothly on my ...

It includes six new, exclusive Moondust shades, which is the brand’s more sparkly eyeshadow formula (and these do not contain any plastic glitter). For someone looking for sparkling, pigmented, and foolproof shades, I don’t think this is it, but for som...

Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Pastel Frost (8) Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent all-shimmer palette that proved disappointing. The newer Fenty palettes were inconsistent, but the matte eyeshadows tended to be more workable and easier to use all-around, while the shimmers were all over the place. These were some of the worst as they were thicker and stiffer in texture, which yiel...

All Of The Internet’s Best Beauty Sales Can Be Found Right Here

I’m going to be totally, completely honest with you: As a beauty editor, I haven’t paid full price for shampoo, moisturizer, or body wash in what could easily be four years. Heck, I get a lot of it for free. However, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t snapped up some on-sale Pat McGrath lipstick from Sephora's Black Friday promo, or a good nail polish shade while visiting the Target near my parents’ house.What exactly am I getting at?

20 Products From Black-Owned Makeup Brands That Deserve a Spot on Everyone's List

It's 2020 - long (so long) past the time where there are only light, medium, and dark foundation colors that are supposed to match the complexions of billions of people. And while we've made remarkable strides in recent years with more-inclusive shade ranges, there's always room for improvement and pioneers who are leading the way. The most influential forces are often people who are directly impacted - and who have directly experienced a situation where things were not one-nude-fits-all - and t...

Tom Ford Arabesque Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Arabesque Tom Ford Beauty Arabesque Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new quad that featured two more sparkly shades and two more satiny shades. The satin shades performed better, though they were not the best of the best, and at this price point, one definitely expects top notch formulations. The sparkly shades were sheer, difficult to build up, and suffered from a fair amount of fallout. ...

Bobbi Brown After Party, Rock & Red, Slow Jam Crushed Oil-Infused Glosses Reviews & Swatches

After Party Bobbi Brown After Party Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly, and it also settled into my lip lines slightly (enough to be noticeable in person), so it was one of the weaker-applying shades in the range. The consistency was still smooth, plush, and...

Bobbi Brown Forever Chill, Force of Nature, In the Buff Crushed Oil-Infused Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Forever Chill Bobbi Brown Forever Chill Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with muted, warm yellow undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied evenly, but the unevenness of my natural lip color was more noticeable due to the sheerness (but I really didn’t think the gloss itself was to blame!). The consistency was smooth, spreadable, and n...

Love Letter Bobbi Brown Love Letter Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. It had a jelly-cream look and feel to me, as the texture was plush and more gel-like without tackiness. The gloss spread evenly over my lips and delivered a semi-sheer tint, which was as expected. It didn’t smooth out my lip lines, but it didn’t seem like much product ...

Tom Ford Noir Fume Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Noir Fume Tom Ford Beauty Noir Fume Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, neutral color story that includes two matte shades and two subtle, shimmer shades. For those looking for intense, metallic finishes, this is not that; the shimmers are subtle, more satin-to-pearl when applied to bare skin with a dry brush. I definitely don’t think there are enough satin finish eyeshadows on the market, but these aren’t the best exam...

It had a lot of shine, and while it looked more like a cream-finish, it didn’t appear milky applied so it didn’t sink heavily into my lip lines. The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer, as described, while the consistency was lightweight, plush, smooth, and spreadable with minimal tackiness...

Chanel Golden Light Baume Essentiel Review & Swatches

Golden Light Chanel Golden Light Baume Essentiel ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light copper with moderate, warm undertones paired with a glossy finish with subtle pearl. It has an emollient, wetter feel that leaves behind a shinier, glossier finish that doesn’t fully set or dry down, though it doesn’t slide around (surprisingly). The balmy quality seems to give it better spreadability, especially over base products, as I didn’t strugg...

Let’s Talk About Glitter!

There are two primary concerns that I routinely see from consumers in the online beauty community and from readers with respect to glitter: 1) whether cosmetic-grade glitter is eye safe, and 2) concerns about plastic glitter and its impact on the environment.  Those concerns continue to be expressed more frequently as more brands include glitter in their product offerings, including products that may or may not be explicitly marketed for eyes but often are included in palettes that otherwise loo...

The lipstick felt lightweight with a thinner, velvety texture that didn’t have a lot of slip or feel traditionally creamy, though it was comfortable to ap...

While my lip lines were less visible due tot he brightness of the hue, I f...
