Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Gingerbread Extra Spicy Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy 18-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that has 18 shades with a good split between mattes and shimmers. There were a few firmer, denser shimmers–almost like heavier, cream-powders–that could go on nicely with the right technique. The mattes were more typical with the Too Faced formula, so they were soft and blendable but had some powderiness and sheered out a bit when blended out,…

Tom Ford Soleil d’Hiver Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Soleil d’Hiver (03) Tom Ford Beauty Soleil d’Hiver (03) Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition neutral-hued quad that features a sparkling, golden peach, medium pink-peach, light bronze, and chocolaty brown. All four shades were shimmery with the first shade having larger sparkles and sheerer coverage as a result of its stiffer consistency. The other three eyeshadows had good pigmentation, were easy to apply, and lasted for eight and a half hours or longer. We…

Tom Ford Soleil Neige Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Soleil Neige (01) Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Neige (01) Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features a frosted white, sparkling light taupe, navy blue, and sparkly black-brown. Three of the four shades seemed to have larger sparkles (not quite glitter), and they packed more visible sparkle than I recall any other shade doing compared to past quads I’ve tested in the same formula. Two of those three sparkling shades seemed marginally drier,…

Anastasia Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Carli Bybel Anastasia Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.392 oz.) is a new, limited edition 14-pan palette that features a mix of mattes, shimmers, and glitters. Most of the shimmers and matte shades performed well: they were pigmented, blendable, easy to work with, and lasted around eight hours on me. I was surprised that Mandala was stiffer to work with, while Aura had a bit too much slip for dry application. The matte shades were consistent with the formula…

Tom Ford Soleil et Lune Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Soleil et Lune (02) Tom Ford Beauty Soleil et Lune (02) Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features a pale beige, rosy bronze, pewter, and muted green. It’s an unusual color story compared to what we often see during the holiday season. It features the brand’s more gel-powder hybrid formula, so the eyeshadows have smooth, denser consistencies with minimal to no powderiness but are better with a moderate hand. They can be…

Anastasia Norvina Vol. 3 Pro Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Norvina Vol. 3 Anastasia Norvina Vol 3 Pro Pigment Palette ($60.00 for 1.575 oz.) is a new, limited edition 25-pan palette that features an array of hues from yellow to plum to emerald green paired with matte and shimmer finishes.I don’t want to spend too much energy rehashing what I said previously in my Vol. 2 review, so I’ll merely summarize for convenience here but encourage interested parties to read that review first for a more detailed breakdown of issues…

Anastasia Norvina Vol. 2 Pro Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Norvina Vol. 2 Anastasia Norvina Vol 2 Pro Pigment Palette ($60.00 for 1.575 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features an assortment of hues from fuchsia to cyan blue to black in a range of finishes from frosted to matte. The matte formula is drier, somewhat powdery, though not necessarily prone to fallout, but they layer poorly with each other–when I applied one shade and went to blend it with the one next to it, it would lift…

ColourPop Lilac You a Lot Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Lilac You a Lot Colour Pop Lilac You a Lot 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new addition to ColourPop’s monochromatic palette series–it features a lilac theme (duh). It was definitely cooler-toned compared to the It’s My Pleasure palette. I think that they could have gone full-on, cool-toned only shades of lilac and purple, though, because the shades that were most overlapping were the warmer-toned shades, like Ghostin’ (Kittenfish) and Wake Me (Do or Dough). Overall,…

Pat McGrath Iconic Illumination Quad Review & Swatches (Holiday 2019) – Beauty Article

Iconic Illumination Pat McGrath Iconic Illumination Blitz Astral Eyeshadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that features four warmer-toned shades across sparkling and metallic finishes. All of the shades performed in line with expectations with only Astral Gold Allure being a bit less pigmented than otherwise indicated by the brand (more pigmented than some Astral shades have been, though). The other three shades were very pigmented and worked well dry as well as wet; those…

Pat McGrath Nocturnal Nirvana Blitz Astral Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Nocturnal Nirvana Pat McGrath Nocturnal Nirvana Blitz Astral Eyeshadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that features all shimmer shades in the Blitz and Astral-based finishes in the brand’s range. These are often referred to as the “dome-shaped” shades as they tend to have more “effects” than the typical, pressed powder eyeshadows (that are flat). Under how-tos, these types of finishes are often recommended to be applied using fingertips or with wet brushes, though they…

Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotise Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Starry Eyes to Hypnotise Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotise 12-Pan Eye Palette ($75.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette for the holiday season that’s split up into four trios. The formula the brand uses in these larger palettes seems to be one of their best; I find the quads to be hit or miss with the more matte shades being a little powdery and prone to sheering out, while the three matte shades in this…

Natasha Denona Gold Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Gold Natasha Denona Gold Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, miniature-sized palette that complements the larger, 15-pan Gold palette. Per the brand, it will be part of the core collection, though I suspect it’s listed as limited edition at Sephora for the packaging (it’ll eventually be moved into the signature white packaging). All five shades performed well, while the two mattes were superb and the shimmers were varying degrees of good to great. If you tend…

MAC x Pony Park Hocus Pocus Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Hocus Pocus MAC Hocus Pocus Eyeshadow x 8 Palette ($35.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that features four matte eyeshadows, one more satin-pearl shade, and three more sparkly shades (Pressed Pigments). The Pressed Pigment formula is an unusual addition to a pre-made MAC palette, but it is a formula that’s been released individually in the past and is supposed to have “sheer-to-moderate buildable coverage” that can be used wet or dry. The coverage ranged from…

ColourPop Whatever Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Whatever Colour Pop Whatever 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is new release for fall, which features seven matte eyeshadows, one cream eyeshadow, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one glitter (which isn’t intended to be used on the eyes). The mattes performed well; I feel like ColourPop has tweaked their matte formula slightly, as they’ve been feeling a little more velvety and smoother overall in the last palettes I’ve tried from them. The three traditional shimmer shades were…

Melt Cosmetics Radioactive Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Radioactive Melt Cosmetics Radioactive 8-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($48.00 for 0.66 oz.) is the newest palette from the brand, which seems like a replacement from the Radioactive Stack, which shares the first four shades (on the left), while the last four shades (on the right) are new. At a glance, it looks like a fun palette, and I love working with color, but I was left disappointed by this palette. A few of the shades were under-pigmented, while others were…

ColourPop Exes and Oh’s Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Exes and Oh’s Colour Pop Exes and Oh’s 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, Ulta-exclusive palette that features muted tones of red- and orange-toned neutrals in both shimmery and matte finish. For anyone who likes to wear these types of tones, it should be an easy palette to work with as the majority of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. A few of the mattes needed to be built up slightly for full…

Sugarpill Fun Size Mini Color Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Fun Size Sugarpill Fun Size 9-Pan Mini Color Palette ($28.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a slim, travel-friendly palette of brighter pops of matte eyeshadow that range from richer pastels like aqua and lavender to vivid hues of orange-red and fuchsia. The formula was a little thinner and drier than most matte formulas on the market, which made them less prone to fallout and had better adhesion with pigmentation that ranged from semi-opaque to opaque but was often easily built up.…

Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Naked Honey Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest to the Naked series of palettes. It features “honey” hued shades–translation: warmer, yellower tones with less orange/red-based warmth–across an assortment of mattes and shimmers. The overall quality was there; almost every shade received perfect marks no pigmentation, though some were a bit thin, dusty, or had some fallout, which was where some fell a little short. Those who tend to user primer or don’t mint…

Pat McGrath Midnight Sun Mothership Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Midnight Sun Pat McGrath Midnight Sun Mothership Eyeshadow Palette ($125.00 for 0.47 oz.) is new, permanent palette that features 10 shades across a myriad of finishes. There are three matte finishes, while the rest of the shades are shimmers with four (on the right side) being the more sparkly, dome-shaped variety. The mattes were very pigmented, silky, and blendable, while most of the shimmers were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with. I did have a bit of fallout with…

Viseart Dark Edit Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Dark Edit Viseart Dark Edit Edit Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition mix of autumnal tones, per the brand, that is designed to be universal across skin tones. There are four shimmers and eight matte shades. I’m still waiting on confirmation with respect to which shades are Pressed Pigments along with which shades are from what palette, but in the meanwhile, I’ve lined them up the best I can comparing these shades to shades found…

Anastasia Norvina Vol. 1 Pro Pigment Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Norvina Vol. 1 Anastasia Norvina Vol. 1 Pro Pigment Palette ($60.00 for 1.575 oz.) includes an array of brightly-hued matte shades paired with a few pops of shimmer. The only shimmer I had issues with was D2, which was drier, thin, and weak in pigment/more prone to fading, while the mattes were typically quite pigmented with light to moderate powderiness, slight fallout, and decent wear (seven to eight hours). The mattes were inconsistent when it came to blending out; some…

Pat McGrath Subversive Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Subversive Pat McGrath Subversive Eye Ecstasy Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($28.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a rich, more jewel-toned combination of shades. Two of the shades (Crimson Fire and Synthetica) in the palette are available as single eyeshadows, while the other three are from the Decadence palette (the one I rave about incessantly). I’m pleased to report that the eyeshadows are fantastic: pigmented, creamy, blendable, long-wearing, and all-around a dream to work with; they were fairly consistent with the original releases–I’d…

Pat McGrath Sublime Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sublime Pat McGrath Sublime Eye Ecstasy Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($28.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, five-pan eyeshadow palette with four metallic shades and one semi-matte shade (matte with fine shimmer/micro-sparkle). All five shades have been released previously, so those who have a lot of the brand’s past palette releases, this may be redundant. For those who have always wanted to try the formula but have held back due to the price point, it’s an excellent way to enjoy it.…

ColourPop Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Baby Got Peach Colour Pop Baby Got Peach 9-Pan Pressed Shadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a new, warm-toned palette that features seven eyeshadows, one Pressed Pigment, and one Pressed Glitter; the latter two come with the warning “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” (please see the respective shade below for more information). I very much wish that ColourPop, at a minimum, would discontinue placing their Pressed Glitters into what otherwise looks and feels like an…

Coloured Raine Power Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Power Coloured Raine Power 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that contains a deeper, purple/plum-themed mix of hues. There are five shimmers and four mattes. The shimmers all have a more emollient, denser/thicker nature to them and most felt a bit more cream-like as a result. The mattes were the least consistent as the pigmentation ranged from semi-sheer to nearly opaque, though they were all buildable, and they varied in how readily…

Charlotte Tilbury Walk of Shame Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Walk of Shame Charlotte Tilbury Walk of Shame Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.18 oz.) is the newest quad in the brand’s line-up, inspired by their Walk of Shame Matte Revolution Lipstick. I imagine if you’re someone typically likes the brand’s formula, the quad seemed consistent with that. The Pop shade (#3) under-performed but not much of a surprise in its performance. I wish the last shade was a bit softer and more yielding. Charlotte Tilbury Walk of Shame #1 Eyeshadow…

Natasha Denona Cranberry (2019) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Cranberry (2019) Natasha Denona Cranberry (2019) Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) has arrived in its permanent, white-hued packaging (compared to its special packaging from last holiday), and the formulas were tweaked. Sakura and Blossom have been changed from the Cream-Powder formula to a pure powder form, though the back of the packaging still listed them as “CP,” the ingredient list was quite close to Creamy Matte shades released in the last few months. That being said, I noticed…
