First up for review is the Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Fascinating Lipgloss in Pearly Indian Ink 4.
This is described on Sephora.com as red with gold glitter. It's obviously pink and looks nothing like the swatch on the website. In person, it looks more like the color above Pearly Pink 3. Sephora rarely seems to get the color right swatch wise, but luckily that has no bearing on the product itself!
MUFE Fascinating glosses are GORGEOUS. You really need to check them out in person. They are much prettier than MAC Dazzleglass and are absolutely not at all sticky or gritty. The pigment is great, not too sheer, but not too bold. I have every single one of these on my wishlist. These retail for $18 each on Sephora.com.
Next we have Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream and Shy Blush.
In the pic the top color is Strawberry Cream and the bottom color is Shy Blush. Strawberry Cream is a beautiful pink color with a hint of gold. Shy Blush is such a gorgeous peachy shade, also with gold.
Out of the two, Shy Blush is my fav. I always lean more towards the peachy or coral shades... but this one is also a bit more pigmented. Normally I have issues with getting any sort of mineralized product to stay nicely on my skin, but these have good staying power.
These shades retail for $10 each on marykay.com.
