When it comes to perfection which is natural, beautiful and enough on its own, the one name that comes to my mind is Troy Surratt. There is no product from Troy Surratt which I have not liked yet, every product – be it makeup or the makeup tools – they all work, not just for what they are created for but are versatile enough to be multi-purpose. Surratt Beauty products have been in my routine for a few years and I use them with the same enthusiasm which I had when I first tried them. The newest launches from Surratt Beauty are Torche Lumiere Highlighter and Inner Light Baton.

Surratt Beauty Torche Lumiere Highlighter and Inner Light Baton

Surratt Beauty Torche Lumiere Highlighter is inspired by the twinkling jewels in the vitrines of the Place Vendome. This collection of highlighters, in 3 shades, gives a multi-faceted glow to the face. Surratt Beauty’s ‘Torche Lumière Highlighter’ creates the illusion of heightened, angular features and a naturally glowy complexion. It is a creamy stick formula that blends effortlessly into the skin giving a beautiful natural glow. I apply it on the high points of my face – along the cheekbones, brow bone, and sometimes on the bridge of my nose. Torche Lumiere is made with genuine diamond and gold dust. The twist-up stick ensures mess-free application and is convenient for travel.

The three shades are described below.

Rose Diamante – A sheer pink that’s packed with light-catching micro-pearls.

D’Or – It is a golden highlighter to give cheekbones a sun-kissed glow. This creamy formula is infused with light-reflecting micro-pearls to brighten and lift your facial features.

Diamante – It adds a shimmering glow to the face and body. It is infused with golden micro-pearls, this creamy formula seamlessly melts into skin and imparts a pretty, champagne hue.

Surratt Beauty Inner Light Baton clever dual-ended eye baton which is clarifying, redness-neutralizing waterline liner in three shades, with a corresponding shimmering powder to further brighten the inner-eye corners, brow bone, or lash line. Eliminating redness or purple tones along the waterline instantly makes the eyes look bigger and brighter. A sweep of the glimmering powder brings additional light-reflection to the entire eye area, creating a twinkly, starry-eyed effect.

It is rightly compared to whitening toothpaste, just that this one is for eyes. The fact is that the whiter the whites of your eyes look, the bigger and brighter your eyes look making you instantly appear more awake and alert. The addition of the shimmery powder further creates a starry-eyed effect. It can also be used for emphasizing the arch of the brow. The creamy pencil glides seamlessly along the waterline without irritation or discomfort and stays on throughout the day with minimal touchups. The soft sponge tip helps the extra-fine shimmery powder adhere perfectly to the skin, and brings light and radiance to your eye area. The Inner Light Baton is available in three shades described below.

Perlè: White + Scintillating Sparkle: Clarifies and flares the whites of the eyes

Effervesce: Peach + Champagne Sparkle: Eliminates blue or purplish tones along the waterline

Mousseux: Chamois + Rose Gold Sparkle: Neutralizes darkness and discoloration; perfect for deeper skin tones

Definitely staples in my routine, on the days I am in the mood for minimal makeup or the days I in the mood for a more glamorous look, these work in all situations and needs. The staying power is amazing, both for the Torche Lumiere and Inner Light Baton. These are on heavy rotation as is the Perfectionniste Concealer Palette I reviewed here. Surratt Beauty is available at Sephora Canada, Beautylish, Sephora, Barneys New York, CultBeauty, and Net-A-Porter

If you have been following me for a while, you might know how much I adore the products from Surratt Beauty, the foundation, blushes, lid lacquer, brushes, and last but not the least the Surreal Skin Concealer. There is new concealer launched by the brand which has become one of my favorite concealers. I took a little longer than usual to post this review with swatches (holiday season you know) but it has been tested for long enough that I can give you all the surety that you might need before you indulge into the Perfectionniste Concealer Palette.

Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste Concealer Palette and Perfectionniste Complexion Brush

Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste Concealer Palette is a full-coverage concealer palette for creating an impeccable complexion and customized coverage. This high-coverage formula obliterates dark circles, blemishes, and other imperfections. Use the lighter shade to conceal and brighten, and the deeper shade on forehead, nose, cheeks, chin. The two shades blended together create an optimal shade to perfectly complement your skin tone, any time of year.  The finishing powder sets the concealer and lends light-refraction. This palette is available in six tri-colorways—each with two creams and one setting powder—for customizable coverage.

I am really impressed with this product overall, both the concealer shades and the finishing powder, they all complement each other so nicely. The concealer melts into the skin, without looking cakey or making the skin look dry or emphasize the problem areas. It is quite pigmented and a little is all you need for nice medium coverage which is easily buildable to full.

Another important thing I am really loving this for is the longevity, it stays on put for over 8 hours which for me is so impressive. I use the lighter shade under my eyes to brighten them up and use the darker shade alone or blend it with the lighter shade to spot conceal my acne spots and pigmentation. I use the setting powder with a light hand to set the concealer. I never had to retouch the areas during the 8 hours I have it on, until I am back from work in the evening and remove the makeup myself.

The concealer does not feel heavy, it is very lightweight and applies beautifully on the skin. It even works great as a primer for eyes and even to highlight the high points of the face with the lighter shade.

There are 6 Palettes available which has the following descriptions:

1 White Powder has 2 Creams in Light Pink, Warm Pink and Powder in White

2 Violet Powder has 2 Creams in Light Peach, Warm Peach and Powder in Violet

3 Yellow Powder has 2 Creams in Warm Peach, Light Tan and Powder in Yellow

5 Brown Powder has 2 Creams in Copper, Brown and Powder in Brown

I use Perfectionniste Complexion Brush or my fingertip or any other concealer brush to apply the concealer and a powder brush to apply the setting powder. I prefer to use Perfectionniste Complexion Brush most of the times as it works amazingly with the cream formula, helps apply it precisely as well as does not irritate the sensitive area near eyes. Once I apply it, I tap my finger on the area few times to set it nicely, I feel the warmth of the skin makes the product blend in more nicely to give a more natural finish. The setting powder is very fine, does not settles into the problem areas or lines nor it makes them dry or cakey.

Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste Complexion Brush is a densely packed brush for perfecting the complexion in targeted areas. The bristles allow for the optimal deposit of product on the skin, while simultaneously preventing over-saturation. It is equally suitable for applying concealer and foundation, giving a perfectly natural finish. As with other Surratt Beauty brushes I own, this brush is also perfection.

Overall, I am really impressed with both the Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste Concealer Palette and Perfectionniste Complexion Brush. The duo has become my favorite, highly recommend. Surratt Beauty is available at Sephora Canada, Beautylish, Sephora, Barneys New York, CultBeauty, and Net-A-Porter

After the long weekend here in Canada, it has been a really long week for me. With a wedding, birthday party, guests, and work assignments, I have been looking forward to writing and sharing with you some amazing products from Surratt Beauty I have been testing since last few weeks. There is no doubt on the range of products and their quality, everything is exceptional which I have tried in the past, eyeshadows, and lipstick here and blush here. The new lid lacquer had been on my radar since it launched this year, as all the products are so versatile, exceptional in quality that you can use the product in different ways. Same with the lid lacquers, they work great on the eyelids as well as lips and even as a highlighter or blush depending on the shade, there are no rules when it comes to these products. Along with the lid lacquer, there are more products I have been using from the brand which I have been really liking as shared further in this post.

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer, Artistique Blush, Surreal Skin Foundation Wand, Relevée Mascara, concealer, Expressioniste Brow Pomade

Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer is described as a unique eye gloss which creates a lustrous glow for eyelids. It is inspired by a Japanese lacquer technique called urushi, this non-sticky formula features rich pigments suspended in a moisturizing, dewy base. The finish can be either sheer or vinyl-like and can have either a wash of color or a deep opacity. The high-gloss effect provides a modern alternative to traditional shadow.

I have been using the lid lacquers almost every day and absolutely in love with them. They have the beautiful glossy finish which is always my favorite look on the eyes. The formula is very lightweight and very creamy, glides on really effortlessly. It gives a beautiful wash of color with the subtle yet glossy finish. They are non-sticky and perfect for one eyeshadow look or to layer with others. The range of shades is amazing, can work for every day as well as for editorial looks.

The packaging of these lid lacquers is in a black lacquered mini compacts with red writing. As for the application, I highly recommend you start with the tiniest amount of product. The time I have been testing them, a little extra means it will crease. I want to stress by using a little to layer and then use more for the next layer. They can be used with fingers if you have firm control to be precise with the application, it can be used with the eyeshadow brushes for blending and even application while using fingers where needed, and it can be used with the foam applicators designed by Surratt Beauty specifically for these lid lacquers. As the name suggests, lacquer means you have to use it as a lacquer, a precise and thin layer and then build up as needed. It stays on well on my eyelids for almost all day, a sheer wash of color or a little more on the lid, the glossy finish, just perfect of what I like for my everyday effortless natural look.  I have the shades Komugi, Kogecha, and Kira Kira. Komugi and Kogecha I can use for my daily routine and for work, Kira Kira is more of a highlighter for my skin tone or a beautiful fun and shiny eye color for evening or occasions.

Komugi is a gleaming taupe which is buildable, it has no shimmer

Kogecha is a melted chocolaty bronze with a radiant satiny finish

Kira Kira is incandescent crystalline gloss

Surratt Beauty Artistique Blush is a long time favorite and I have reviewed them in the past in detail. The texture of the blush is very fine, they are pigmented and blend very easily. The product is made with an exclusive Japanese Slurry leaves method which makes the product very soft with a satin finish on the skin. The Japanese tradition of minimal elegance is what is implemented here too, the product in the pan might look dark or light but once applied it gives the most beautiful natural glow and color. I have been impressed with the texture and the results. A small amount is all that is needed and the results are amazing. The color payoff is good, the formula is cream-like, silky smooth and blends easily. The new shades I have been testing are Halo, Flamme, and Cantaloup.

Halo is a divine golden highlighter – bright, golden yellow with warm undertones and a frosted, sparkling sheen

Flamme is a molten heat – medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a gold, frosted shimmer

Cantaloup is a golden melon – perfect peach with yellow undertones, no red or orange undertones

Surratt Beauty Surreal Skin Foundation Wand is described as a skin-perfecting foundation wand that’s a foundation and a brush in one. The Surreal Real Skin Foundation Wand leaves your skin looking flawless. Its innovative design makes application easy, and it instantly melts into skin, reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines. With a number of shades to choose from, it’s perfect for every skin tone. This foundation features a self-setting, oil-free formula that provides an invisible, medium-to-full coverage and a long-wearing finish. It dispenses foundation through a brush for effortless application and quick touch-ups.

As you see the packaging, it is a very innovative product with brush and product in the same wand, and also the black sleek cylindrical tube looks amazing. The foundation comes out from the brush side when you click from the opposite side of the wand, it takes a few clicks to get used to how much product dispenses depending on your need. The formula is creamy and blends beautifully into the skin. The finish is natural and glowy, which I am a fan of. The coverage is medium and covers most of my problem areas by building it up.

The staying power of the foundation is great, stays on well for over 8 hours on me and does not oxidize. I usually apply the product on the face in dots and then blend and buff with my other foundation brush or my beauty blender. I am really impressed by how natural and radiant my face looks with this foundation. It does not cake, or settles into my problem areas or even the dry areas. I have shades 4 and 7 which both work well for me, shade 7 for the whole face and shade 4 as a highlighter or concealer. Overall, the foundation is going to be on my favorite’s list.

Surrat Beauty Surreal Skin Concealer is described as a long-lasting concealer that erases dark circles and offers surreal coverage. This creamy concealer stick helps vanish under-eye circles, dark spots, and discoloration. The enduring, opaque formula becomes one with skin and outlasts hot lights and long days. This is a beautiful product which is creamy and very lightweight. It blends seamlessly into the skin while concealing the problem area. It does not make the area cakey or dry. I use it to cover my problem areas on the face including the dark spots left by my acne, the pigmentation and also works nicely under the eyes to brighten up the area. The staying power is nice, and I do set this concealer with a loose powder. The bullet stick is easy to dab on and then smooth with my finger or a brush. It does not settle into the problem areas or lines. The finish looks natural. It is one of the best concealers I have used after my Cle de Peau Beaute and Laura Mercier Concealers.

Surratt Beauty Relevée Mascara is described as black lengthening and defining mascara for creating impossibly long, arched lashes.  Its slim, angled brush lifts, arches, and gracefully fans out lashes, while the humidity-proof Japanese tubing formula hyperextends them with microfibers. The formula shrink-wraps around lashes, preventing smudges or fallout. It is a really nice mascara for giving some length and volume to the lashes, the gel-like formula does not flakes or clump. It stays on well all day, the lashes look long and thick. It is super pigmented, the richest black I’ve ever seen.

Surratt Beauty Expressioniste Brow Pomade is described as a clear, flexible wax formula works to lift, shape and hold each and every brow hair in place in one sweep. The comb-like brush grooms hairs with ease in a colorless, undetectable finish. If you see in the finish, you might think is it glue like and waxy white product but it dries clear, looks so natural, without any stiffness on the brows. It is undetectable on the brows and gives beautiful brows on sleek. The applicator takes few turns to get hold off but once you get used to it, it is going to be a favorite. It does not clump the hairs together or make them feel dry and crispy, Instead it fluffier, fuller, smooth and keep your brows in place all day long.

I am really impressed with all the Surratt Beauty products I have tried till now and these new additions are definitely going to stay in rotation for as far as I can see.
