Terra Moons Metallic Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 4 of 4)

Nightfall Terra Moons Nightfall Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium blue with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was thicker and almost chunky, which made it harder to apply in an even layer on my skin. I’d recommend using a dampened brush or a fingertip when working with this shade, which also helped to minimize fallout. It lasted decently for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.FURTHER READIN...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia Radiant Reflection | The Arrangement + Combinations

The Radiant Reflection palette features three matte shades and nine shimmers. One shimmer–Forget-Her-Not–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, could be used as a “matte” for depth for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease (couldn’t achieve a matte purple in this depth, vividness, and tone without using non-FDA color additives!). All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia On the Horizon | The Arrangement + Combinations

One shimmer–Calming Presence–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, could be used as a “matte” for depth for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease. All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations possible. Note: October Odyssey and Infinite Echoes are the matte eyeshadows that have a Light and Deep ver...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia: Light vs. Deep Versions + Visualizing & Comparing All the Shades

One of the questions I’ve been asked the most is whether someone should get the Light or Deep version of a palette, so I thought I’d discuss the differences and hopefully provide some insight/ask the right questions to help you dial in whether the light or deep version is more suitable for you, assuming you’re looking to purchase one. As always, if none of the palettes would be something you wear, please do not buy to “support” me. Engaging with the content I post, re...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia Quintessence | The Arrangement + Combinations

The Quintessence palette features four matte shades and eight shimmers. One shimmer–Orion Nebula–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, so it is more like a satin-to-pearl finish and could be used as a matte for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease. All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations possible. Note: Reaching Zenith and Parallax are the matte eyeshadows that hav...

Lethal Cosmetics Roots Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Roots Lethal Cosmetics Roots 6-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes six new eyeshadows, which can be purchased individually ($6 to $7 each) or together as a pre-made palette (as shown). The palette contains three matte shades and three shimmers. The three shimmers were quite nice; pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Terra Moons Metallic Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 3 of 4)

Stormy Terra Moons Stormy Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened blue base with brighter, more contrasting blue-teal shimmer that gave it a smooth, pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly emollient texture that was thin (but not in a bad way, as it wasn’t powdery or dry!) that had exceptional adhesion to bare skin. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.FURTHER READING...

Chanel Tender Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Tender Chanel Tender Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, three more semi-matte to satin shades, and one more sparkly shade. The worst performing shade was the sparkly one, as it was very sheer, didn’t build up, and translated very little to my lid and had lots of fallout, so it was hard to work with in a meaningful way. The other four shades were much better with...

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Divine Blush Review & Swatches

Divine Rose Pat McGrath Divine Rose Divine BlushPat McGrath Divine Rose Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a soft, light-medium rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage, but it took more effort to sheer it out than anticipated based on the brand’s claims (so as long as being more pigmented isn’t a deal-breaker, there are no real cons to the formula!). I suspe...

It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, which was still more than marketed, so you’ll want to use a lighter hand or less-dense brush to achieve truly sheer coverage from the get-go if desired. The powder was smooth, velvety, and a little ...

Lethal Cosmetics Gravity Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

Gravity Lethal Cosmetics Gravity Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It was one of the more metallic shades in the brand’s range, though it stopped short of emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had mostly opaque color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage with a second. The consistency was soft, smooth, and not too...

‘I cringe at it now’: what happened to the kids of reality TV?

Whether lurking in the background of The Real Housewives, or starring in their own show, a generation have had their childhoods captured on screen.
