About

–The first launch was a line of lipsticks that FLOPPED, but the launches since then have been great (in my opinion)

Accent Highlighter
Claims—Shimmering :: creaming :: buildable :: light with every swipe
Price—$16 mini :: $29 full size
Shade Range—2 mini :: 8 full size
My Shades—Iced & Spark$
Pros—Shade range :: mini for travel/testing :: extremely metallic :: buildable
Cons—Only 2 shades in the mini :: mirror packaging gets dirty easily  
Final Thoughts—The mini size will last you forever because you only need a little bit of product for a blinding look :: buildable formula :: not for those who want a subtle, natural look, but I love it.


Bronze & Blushing Duo
Claims—Blurred finish :: satin blush :: soft matte bronzer :: for every skin tone & undertone
Price—$36
Shade Range—7
My Shade—Lilac Love/Top Tan
Pros—Shade range :: buildable formula :: gives a gorgeous glow :: minimal powder kickback when you dip your brush in
Cons—Blush isn’t pigmented enough for me  
Final Thoughts—Neither shade is overly pigmented, but you can build them up to get your desired look :: the blush is so light, I wish it were more pigmented :: love the 2-in-1 :: would love for her to release these shades separately


Last Act Translucent Powder
Claims—Silky-smooth :: flawless finish :: soft-blurring effect :: super fine
Price—$28
Pros—Sets makeup in place :: dry skin friendly :: agree with all claims :: add subtle, radiant glow without glitter Cons—Contains talc
Final Thoughts—This powder is PERFECT for dry skin :: sets makeup in place without caking and doesn’t give a flat matte finish :: Talc doesn’t bother me, but I know some are sensitive to it :: I would love for her to release this in a loose power :: I’m not sure how well this would control oil for those with oily skin types

Price—$26-29

My Shade—Lightning
Pros—GORGEOUS glow :: very intense with a little bit of product :: perfect shade for my fair skin :: easy to blend Cons—None
Final Thoughts—There are only 3 shades, but I think these 3 will work for all skin tone, fair to deep :: not for those who like a subtle glow, this is intense and I love it :: easy to blend and melts into the skin


Lip Cushion

My Shade—Lip Locked
Pros—Agree with all claims :: very light and comfortable on the lips :: creamy :: went on with ease
Cons—None
Final Thoughts—I hope she will expand the shade range :: formula isn’t drying and is very comfortable :: touched up after eating & drinking, but very impressed with the longevity :: not transfer proof. It doesn’t claim to be, but I wanted to mention it.


Bake & Brighten Under Eye Powder

Rouge Romance Cream Blush Stick
Claims—High pigment :: creamy formula :: soft matte powder finish :: effortless wash of color
Price—$22
Shade Range—4
My Shade—Empress
Pros—Pigmented :: easy to blend :: buildable :: doesn’t lift foundation
Cons—Shade range
Final Thoughts—The color looks very intimidating in the tube and it is pigmented, but it’s easy to blend out :: you only need a little bit of product for the perfect blushed look :: I applied directly to my face and it didn’t mess with my foundation. I also applied directly to a brush and blended that way. Both ways work fine.

Sweet Glaze Lip Lacquer
Claims—High-impact pigment :: glossy-shine finish
Price—$18
Shade Range—4
My Shade—Ginger
Pros—Love the scent :: pigmented  
Cons—Shade range :: very thick formula :: sticky
Final Thoughts—I’m not usually a big gloss fan, but I wanted to try this formula since the shades were so pretty. I like the color and the scent, but the formula is very thick and sticky. Not my favorite gloss formula on the market.
