Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Vinyl

Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Vinyl Swatches and Review

Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Vinyls are thick lip glosses in stick form that coat the lips quite heavily for a glassy, high-shine finish that smooths over the look of lip lines. This is not plumping formula but the thickness of the product has a plumping visual effect. There are 16 shades in total with sheer, opaque, and shimmery options, $26 each.

Milk Makeup Cooling Water Jelly Tint

Milk Makeup Cooling Water Jelly Tint Review

Milk Makeup Cooling Water Jelly Tint is a lip and cheek stain in a water-based jelly stick. It dries down quickly, feeling almost like nothing on the skin. It is not sticky at all and also does not feel moisturizing, hydrating or slippery. It feels like a “water stain” but instead of being liquidy, it has a giggly, gelatin-like texture. There are 4 bright, shimmer and sparkle free shades to choose from, $24 each.

Make Up For Ever HD Skin Setting Powder

Make Up For Ever HD Skin Setting Powder Review

Make Up For Ever HD Skin Setting Powder is a loose powder that is supposed to be blurring, mattifying, lightweight and undetectable, and it is boldly claimed to fight shine for 24 hours. There are two sizes available, a large 18 gram jar that includes a puff for $43, and a smaller 7 gram option that I believe also includes a puff, for $22. There are 12 shades, some of which are color correcting shades. At the time of this posting, Sephora carries only six of the shades. The full size jar and the rest of the shades can be found on Make Up For Ever’s website.

ColourPop Lost In Love Palette

ColourPop Lost In Love Palette Review

The ColourPop Lost In Love Palette is a limited edition Valentine’s Day palette for 2024. It mainly consists of various pinks and one true red but also has some peach/orange/coral and berry shades. There are 6 mattes, 4 shimmers, and 2 pressed glitters. As far as I can tell from the outside of the palette and the box, it doesn’t seem that any of the shades are pressed pigments. It is available exclusively on ColourPop.com for $18.

Saie Dew Blush

Saie Dew Blush Swatches and Review

Saie Dew Blushes are semi sheer liquid blushes with a dewy finish. They have a very hydrating feel and never fully set down, remaining dewy looking throughout the day. A few shades have some fine shimmer up close in swatches but I don’t notice any sparkle or shimmer once they are on the cheek. There are 9 shades in total and they retail for $25 each.
