Tom Ford Beauty Possession Shade & Illuminate Lips

Possession

Tom Ford Beauty Possession Shade & Illuminate Lips ($60.00 for 0.12 oz.) contains a bright, medium pink and a darker, fuchsia pink. The lighter shade could have been a bit more pigmented, while both shades could have applied more evenly. The darker shade was bright enough that its shortcomings in texture weren’t as noticeable. I would recommend using a lip liner with this duo to maximize its potential, though.

Shade & Illuminate Lips is a lipstick duo that features a formula that is supposed to have “rich color” and “adherence” with a “velvet matte finish.” The duos are designed to have a lighter shade and a darker shade, and they can be worn alone, mixed, or as an ombre lip look. There was also a dual-ended applicator–a sponge on one end and a brush on the other–but the sponge really did not work well to apply the color, as it yielded sheer coverage and seemed to suck all the emollient qualities out of the formula and left behind a drier, almost powdery texture on the lips. The lip brush worked, but for me, the tiny applicator was harder to control and took me three to four times as long to apply compared to a traditional lip brush (which has a longer handle).

Possession (Left)

Possession (Left) is a bright, peony pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a creamy, moderately emollient texture that had a tendency to apply unevenly and show some streaking. The consistency, while very comfortable to wear, had a lot of slip, which contributed to some of the unevenness in the application. This shade wore well for three and a half hours but was moisturizing.

Possession (Right)

Possession (Right) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was great, but the texture had enough slip that it wasn’t the most flattering shade on me. The lipstick bunched up a bit and looked patchy on my upper lip and some color pulled into my lip lines on my lower lip. It was bright and rich enough that it wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, though. This shade lasted for five hours and left a stain behind, while the formula was also hydrating.

ColourPop Meant to Be Pressed Powder Eye Duo

Meant to Be

ColourPop Meant to Be Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a shimmering, peachy-orange and a vibrant pink-coral. The lighter shade is very shimmery, and the texture was denser and had more substance to it compared to the darker coral, so they didn’t quite layer as well together as I would have liked. If I diffused the shimmery shade enough, it was workable, especially if I layered the darker coral over it rather than trying to get the shimmer to layer over the coral. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection, but ColourPop is releasing them as singles today.

Flowerboy

Flowerboy is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was also a little powdery. The texture seemed to kickup a fair amount of excess product in the pan, but it ended up performing quite well on the eye. I didn’t have issues with fallout, and the eyeshadow applied with good adherence and wasn’t prone to sheering out. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Chanel Rouge, Nude, Rose Clair Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs

Nude

Chanel Nude Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly, but some of the color slipped into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, creamy, wet but not too slippery, and comfortable to wear, as it was quite hydrating. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have “rich colour in a single stroke” with a “satiny” finish. The lipstick pencil twists-up (no sharpening required), and the consistency is incredibly creamy, soft, and smooth. The coverage varied from mostly opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, and the wear time ranged between three to five hours with some shades (like the reds and fuchsias) leaving a stain behind. It was a very hydrating and comfortable formula to wear, but they’re so soft that I felt like it was easy to over-apply the product when there isn’t much product in each tube (0.04 oz. compared to a standard Chanel lipstick, which is 0.12 oz.). Twist-up pencils usually contain less product than a twist-up tube of lipstick, but I wish these had a little more (like 0.08 oz.) or else not quite as pricey. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Rose Clair

Chanel Rose Clair Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft, medum pink with warm undertones and a fine, pearly finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was easy to apply and work with, but it did not build up to opaque coverage for me. The texture was creamy, soft (almost melted upon contact), and smooth on the lips. This shade wore nicely for four hours and was hydrating.

Rouge

Chanel Rouge Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a barely-there pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was creamy, thin without being too thin or clingy, and easy to spread across the lips. The formula felt moisturizing over the five and a half hours this shade lasted for. It also left a subtle stain behind.
