Give Me Glow Vintage Rose Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Vintage Rose Give Me Glow Vintage Rose 8-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($34.00 for 0.8 oz.) includes three matte eyeshadows and five shimmer eyeshadows, which are all oversized (almost double typical, single full-sized shades!) housed in a cardboard palette. The eyeshadows were very pigmented, easy to work with, and lasted for eight hours. A few shades were more softly-pressed and had a little fallout during application at “worst.” ...

Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Rose Royal Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep red with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a very long way, so it was always better to use less and build up coverage–which was very doable–rather than try the reverse. I’d recommend using fluffy, synthetic or duo-fiber brushes, which...

JD Glow A Lot & Urgent Pressed Multichromes Reviews & Swatches

A Lot JD Glow A Lot Pressed Multichrome ($15.00 for 0.095 oz.) has a black base with multichromatic shimmer that shifted between cooler purple to warmer purple to deep pink to copper to vivid coppery-orange paired with a metallic finish. It had a strong, visible shift that was easily detected on the eye. The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and slightly firmer in the pan compared to other shades in the range, though it applied we...

Dior Toile de Jouy Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Toile de Jouy (429) Dior Toile de Jouy (429) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new(er) warmer neutral color story that included a mix of finishes that ranged from matte to sparkle. This palette suffered from a general powderiness/dryness across the board compared to most of the brand’s eyeshadows. Most shades had semi-opaque or better coverage, and they were blendable, but they absolutely required a prime...

Sydney Grace Black Hole & Forest Floor Cream Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Black Hole Sydney Grace Black Hole Cream Shadow (2020) ($8.00 for 0.34 oz.) has a darker gray base with flecks of larger silver sparkle over a more metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied at its best and most evenly when worn at high coverage. I found it harder to apply and blend out the edge without getting some fallout (initially) and the base didn’t appear as even. The texture was smooth, thin, and spread...

Give Me Glow Matte Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Round 2, Part 5 of 5)

Limeade Give Me Glow Limeade Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a bright, lime green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was quite powdery, drier, and thin with a tendency to apply unevenly and be difficult to blend out. I also had a fair amount of fallout when I tried to build up the color from its more semi-sheer to medium coverage to anything higher. It stained my lids but lasted for around eight...

Danessa Myricks Latte Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Latte Danessa Myricks Latte Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Latte Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It has a smooth consistency that was creamy without being too thick or too thin, so it wasn’t runny but it wasn’t stiff to work with. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, so adjusting and learning to use the smallest amount possible was the b...

Dior Pink Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Pink Glow (619) Dior Pink Glow (619) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a pink and red color, neutral color story that included satin to sparkle finishes. Two of the shades were more sparkly but had decent coverage despite that, so they were functional as standalone shades as well as for layering. I had issues with the fifth shade, which felt quite different than any other shadow I’ve tried from the brand–it...

They had medium to opaque color coverage, were fairly easy to apply and blend out, and lasted around eight hours. The brand claimed that their eyeshadows would last for 12 hours, though, which I could only achieve with primer underneath. Ingredients ...

Chanel Fall 2021 Ombre Premiere Laques Reviews & Swatches

Lame Ivoire (39) Chanel Lame Ivoire (39) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a darker, champagne gold with warm, golden tones but not to the point of leaning orange/peach. It had a smooth, fluid consistency that was slightly watery initially, but then it dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish. I liked applying this best with a fingertip or a fluffy brush for a sheerer wash of color. For higher opacity, I’d recommend...

ColourPop I'm Wishing, How Far I'll Go, Beauty & the Beast, Once Upon a Dream Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

I'm Wishing ColourPop I’m Wishing Super Shock Shadow seemed to have a more transparent base with flecks of white, silver, and iridescent pink shimmer and micro-sparkle. I’d consider this more of a topper kind of shade or what one might reach for if they wanted a wash of iridescent sparkle all over the lid. The texture was emollient to the touch, lightweight, and thin with good spreadability for an even layer of semi-sheer to medi...

The texture was more emollient than the average shade within this formula as well. It lasted decently for nine hours be...
