Natasha Denona Retro + Mini Bloom Swatches

Here are swatches of the just-released Natasha Denona Retro Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00) and Natasha Denona Bloom Mini Highlighter Blush ($19.00). Based on how Sephora lists them, they seem to be permanent… Heads up: Galaxia in this palette is quite different from the version in the Star palette! New Natasha Denona! Gallery Options Produc...

MAC Natural Wilderness, Sandstone, Greystone, Carbon, In Living Pink Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Natural Wilderness MAC Natural Wilderness Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a lighter, very yellowy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was smooth to the touch, not too firmly nor too softly pressed in to the pan. I had no trouble picking up product with a dry brush and diffusing the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.FURTHER READ...

If You Like Taupe and Pink Oh and Peach…!

Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette ($25) is available today and I’m liking all that pink and taupe! And along with it there’s a new Mini Bloom Blush in a pretty glowing peach. I’m hoping the new Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette will be a better match for me than the Tarte Cue the Confetti Eyeshadow Palette which I wanted to love but ended up disliking! At first glance I was like, “Eh I don’t need this!” but the more I look at the more I really like the shades. I can’t really do a tradit...

Melt Cosmetics Rust Eyeshadow Palette (2020) Review & Swatches

Rust Melt Cosmetics Rust 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new–probably permanent–palette that extends the original Rust Eyeshadow Stack with five additional shades. The brand indicated that Rott was changed slightly, but in terms of being better in quality but also a bit in color. Rust P Permanent . $58.00. ...

Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pink-aroo Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with flecks of pink-to-violet shifting shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer–it was far more pigmented than other shades in the line and more so than expected based on the formula’s claims–that could be applied with a lighter hand to get sheerer, more buildable coverage. The texture was ...

MAC Humblebrag, Samoa Silk, Libra, Nude Model, Left You on Red Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Humblebrag MAC Humblebrag Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light lavender with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of cooler pink micro-sparkle. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, and a little drier to the touch, so it was more prone to fallout and didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. I’d definitely recommend wearing this with a primer, which helped the product to go on more readily. It had medium coverage that was b...

It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well but had a bit of fallout during application.

Natasha Denona Lip Oh-phoria Lipglosses Reviews & Swatches

Duo Chrome Coral Natasha Denona Duo Chrome Coral Lip Oh-phoria ($26.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral base with flecks of green-to-gold shifting pearl. It had medium coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly across my lips, but there was a touch of product that sat in my deeper lip lines. The settling wasn’t noticeable in person, just in the close-up photos, thankfully! The texture was smooth, l...

Charlotte Tilbury Green Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Green Lights Charlotte Tilbury Green Lights Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) might have a new name, but it is The Rebel (2020) — the brand actually discloses that in the product’s description (which I didn’t bother to read so fool me once…!). It’s an odd move given that The Rebel (2020) debuted recently, so I don’t know why they wouldn’t have kept it the same, went with the “Green Lights” name, etc., especially since it ended up...

UOMA Beauty Notting Hill Black Magic Bronzing Highlighter Review & Swatches

Notting Hill UOMA Beauty Notting Hill Black Magic Face & Body Bronzing Highlighter ($35.00 for 0.65 oz.) is a light, golden copper with strong, warm undertones paired with an intense, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long way, so the denser, slightly firmer texture was very much welcome. It was easy to use a lighter hand to pick up less product for a more buildable application if desired, but on the fl...

MAC What’s the WiFI, Mint Condition, Stormwatch, Triennial Wave, Power to the Purple Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

What's the WiFi MAC What’s the WiFi Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, lime green with moderate, warm undertones paired with a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges without sheering out too readily. The texture was lightly powdery, so it was more sensitive to natural oils or dampness on the skin, which means you’ll want to apply...

Fenty Beauty True Neutrals (1) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

True Neutrals (1) Fenty Beauty True Neutrals (1) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette that had three shimmery shades and three matte shades. It was a mixed bag–nothing bad enough to be a real miss but there’s no shortage of neutral palettes on the market, so it not having more consistent, higher performance is surprising. ...

MAC Dazzleshadow Extreme Reviews & Swatches (Part 2)

Incinerated MAC Incinerated Dazzleshadow Extreme ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it needed a firmer hand or a denser brush to pick up product well (e.g. a pencil brush picked up product fairly well but a fluffy brush was difficult to use with it). It had good color coverage in a si...

It had a smooth, moderately emollient texture that spread easily across bare skin as well as patted over foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting up my base. It had buildable coverage that ranged from higher medium to mostly opaque applied directly from the t...

It had a smoother, lightly metallic finish, and the more the color was buffed and blended out, the less intense the finish was. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer that was difficult to apply evenly with a dry brush. A lightly dampened brush helped to ...

Dark (03) Natasha Denona Dark (03) Face Glow Cream Shimmer ($38.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark bronze with subtle, warm undertones and fine pearl paired with a dewy finish. The formula never fully dried down, so it has a true dewy finish that looked slightly wet while worn, but thankfully, it didn’t seem prone to sliding around or migrating easily as it still lasted for a solid eight hours before signs of wear were present...

NARS Shock ‘Em, Slam, Stricken Powerchrome Eye Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Shock 'Em NARS Shock ‘Em Powerchrome Loose Eye Pigment ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a shiny, sparkling light, golden beige with more of a transparent base. It was one of the chunkiest eyeshadows I’ve come across, and the size of the clumps and flakes was daunting (though it doesn’t contain any plastic glitter). It would have been easier to work with if the larger pieces broke up and could be really smoothed out, but it was hard to get...

NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette Review & Swatches

Nude NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, permanent six-pan palette with three shimmery shades and three “Latex Matte” shades. The Latex Matte finish is quite interesting and complex while actually… working well. It has more of a cream-powder base that looks almost vinyl-like–not quite matte and a bit like the subtle sheen a cream product might produce paired with flaky sparkle. Because of the creami...

The palette included four shades that could be used dry for a “sheer and delicate look” or used wet to “maximize the payoff and the intensity.” The “issue” I had was that only Serein was actually sheer applied d...

Pastel Frost (8) Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent all-shimmer palette that proved disappointing. The newer Fenty palettes were inconsistent, but the matte eyeshadows tended to be more workable and easier to use all-around, while the shimmers were all over the place. These were some of the worst as they were thicker and stiffer in texture, which yiel...
