Lisa Eldridge Solar Light Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Solar Light Lisa Eldridge Solar Light Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. The texture was fluid, lightweight, and thin with a bit of a watery slip to it, though it wasn’t watery to the point that it was hard to work with. It had a longer dry down time–three minutes–but it was more transfer-resistant afterward and never tacky. When applied to ...

Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Crystal Nebula Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with fine, lighter pearl and a soft, luminous sheen. It imparted a glowing, almost wet-like shine to my skin that wasn’t overtly shimmery but was more intense than a lot of other liquid highlighters on the market (which are often very sheer and lower in pearl). It had a sheerer base, but the intensity of the glow was ...

Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Celestial Fire Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light-medium copper with warmer, fine gold pearl and a dewy sheen. It had sheer pigmentation, as marketed, that was somewhat buildable to more medium coverage if layered up, though I’d say that the finish became more shimmery and intense when layered overall. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin without being too watery or too d...

Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Cosmic Rose Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, golden peach with ultra-fine pearl that gave it a soft, luminous sheen when left to set and dry down on skin. It wasn’t transfer-proof but fairly transfer-resistant, and it was key to let it set as this was how one achieved the “smoothing” effect that helped the product meld better with skin and appear reflective and glowing without bei...

Natasha Denona Love Glow Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Love Glow Natasha Denona Love Glow Blush & Glow Palette ($55.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, permanent palette (this packaging is limited edition) that features a cream blush, two blushes, and one highlighter. All four shades performed similarly to past shades I’ve tried in each respective formula, but that being said, the textures of the powder products tended to be a bit denser/firmer and will all work well for someone who is often fea...

Tom Ford Connor, Federico, Warren Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Connor ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a vibrant, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging, but the color adhered well to the lips and did not move around easily when worn. On me, it lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Top Dupes Formula OverviewIngredients T...
