Danessa Myricks Colorfix Mattes are unlike any beauty product I have ever used. I wanted to try out a couple of her products after seeing her work on Instagram and chose the Colorfix Matte Liquid Pigment for eyes, cheeks, and lips and the Evolution Powder in Yellow.
Colorfix Matte Liquid Pigment – Rustic
A little goes a long way with this liquid pigment. I used this on my cheeks and lips. It’s pretty thick so I squeezed way too much out on my hand, swirled a little and put just a dot on my cheek, similar to how I use Benefit’s cheek tints (here’s an example of that) or Rare Beauty’s Soft Pinch Blush. I thought blending would be troublesome but it blended beautifully and dried down really, really fast.
I used a lip brush to apply the product to my lips. You really have to work quickly with it because of how fast it dries. I used two layers for a full-coverage lip. Once it did dry down, it did leave my lips really dry. I applied Clarins Lip Balm over the top and it solved the issue, however it did make it move around on my lips and transferable.
Also wearing Dior Atelier Eyeshadow Quad, LA Girl HD Pro Concealer in Toffee, Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift Pencil – Natural Black, Makeup by Mario Soft Glow Highlighter in Honey and Danessa Myricks Evolution Setting Powder. The foundation is discontinued.
Evolution Setting Powder
The Danessa Myricks Evolution Setting Powder is a finely milled yellow powder that can be used for priming, smoothing, and setting makeup, I use this to set my under eye concealer. Because it’s so fine, when you dip the brush in the powder, it has the tendency to “puff up” in the air. I also find that I have to apply a few layers to get the right highlighting touch I go for. This is not something you bake with.
This elegant powder really does photograph beautifully and makes my skin look smooth. I’m still experimenting with the Colorfix Matte; I don’t think it’s right for me for lip wear. While the color is very pretty it’s too drying for my lips on its own. As a blush it’s perfect and doesn’t need to be touched up. I haven’t tried it as an eyeshadow yet. I’d definitely be interested in trying out additional shades.
