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.
ColourPop Lip and Cheek Balms are multi-use cream products that can be used as blushes or tinted lip balms. These launched just recently as part of ColourPop’s Valentine’s Day 2024 collection and are available in 3 shades. They can be purchased individually for $12 or as a trio for $32 and are exclusive to ColourPop.
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.
Sephora Collection Colorful Powder Luminizers are a range of 6 new highlighters. They have a gel-powder formula that helps them to meld with the skin without looking dry and they give off a soft, buildable glow without glitter or large sparkles. These are $14 each, contain 0.12 oz / 3.5 grams of product, and can be purchased from Sephora and Kohl’s.
The Natasha Denona My Mini Dream Glow Blush is a mini cheek trio based on the larger cheek palette from the earlier My Dream Collection release. It contains 2 matte blushes and 1 highlighter all pressed artfully into a single pan. The color of the deeper matte blush is the same as the one from the larger palette in the collection.
Elf Camo Liquid Blushes are highly pigmented, creamy, blendable blushes that go for $7 each and come in 9 shades. They don’t dry down too fast or too much and can be applied with fingers or brushes, creating a noticeable flush with a hydrated-looking dew. Some of the shades have very fine shimmer that is only noticeable extremely close up. None of them have any large or noticeable sparkle.
