Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

She's in Parties Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.58 oz.) is a new, likely-permanent palette that takes the brand’s original stack (which included four shades) and extends the color story with four new shades in a slim, rectangular palette form. I felt like all of the original shades were improved here to some degree, and the additional shades were well done. They were pigmented, blendable, lo...

JD Glow Secrets, Good Gawd, N-sane, Plum, Fairy Acid Galaxy Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Secrets JD Glow Secrets Galaxy Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a brighter, light blue with cool undertones and warmer, pink and gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges.

All three eyeshadows had rich color payoff, blendable and easy-to-work-with textures, and lasted between eight and nine hours on me.

Clionadh Cosmetics Glimmer, Candela, Flicker Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Glimmer Clionadh Glimmer Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.75 for 0.05 oz.) has a transparent base with a lot of sparkling shimmer that shifted from bright, icy blue to purplish-blue to warmer, pinky-lavender paired with a more sparkling sheen. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift from “blue-indigo-violet.” The shift was definitely apparent in person with little contortion necessary to detect–I could clearly see it going from r...

Clionadh Crown Glass & Lunette Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Crown Glass Clionadh Crown Glass Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened base with a multichrome finish that shifted between navy blue, purplish-blue, brighter purple, and red. Per the brand, the shade shifts between “teal-indigo-pink-red-gold.” It had a very high-shine, reflective metallic finish. I was just barely able to detect a bit of gold–more like pink-peach–at the very, very edge of arm swatches...

Mocha Spritz Kaja Mocha Spritz Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio ($21.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new, deeper neutral eyeshadow trio featuring two matte shades and one shimmery shade.

I felt like the three shades worked well together, too.FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and chara...

Clionadh Forge & Weathered Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Forge Clionadh Forge Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) had a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome shift that went between plummy-brown to brighter plum to bronze to warmer green to emerald green to bluish-teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “rose-orange-gold-lime-teal.” The teal was the hardest to see in person as it was just at the most extreme edge, so it was something better viewed in l...

Peachy Keen JD Glow Peachy Keen Galaxy Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-peach base–more pink than peach–paired with light gold-to-green shifting shimmer. It had a very strong shift to an almost lime-like green, and the finish itself was a very smooth, reflective metallic. The texture felt soft, smooth, and not too densely pressed into the pan, which made it easy to work with and to blend out on my lid. It ha...

JD Glow Opal, Bestie, Starluster, 365, Unxpected Galaxy Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Opal JD Glow Opal Galaxy Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light pink with warmer undertones and a cooler, bluish-green shift paired with a metallic finish. It had an incredibly smooth, almost cream-powder feel to it, so there was an emollient slip to it without it actually being a cream eyeshadow. It had rich color coverage that applied beautifully to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color. This shade wore well for eigh...

ColourPop Fresh Cut Creme Gel Liner Set Review & Swatches

Exit Colour Pop Exit Crème Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a pale white with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which didn’t build up much beyond that. The texture was drier compared to the other liners I tried with it, though it didn’t tug or pull on my lower lash line. It wore well for seven hours before showing signs of fading.

ColourPop Miss Bliss Palette Review & Swatches

Miss Bliss Colour Pop Miss Bliss 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, probably limited life (aka around until it’s not!) orange and pink palette with two true mattes, four sparkly mattes, two shimmers, and one glitter. I’m not a huge fan of the “sparkly matte” concept–sometimes you’ll see very fine pearl in a matte, which I’ve been told helps with blending, but the larger sparkles seem unnecessary and are th...

ColourPop In a Trance Palette Review & Swatches

In a Trance ColourPop In a Trance 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, pastel-themed palette with a mix of blues and lavenders. It contained five (mostly) matte shades, three shimmer shades, and one pressed glitter shade. The mattes performed better than I expected; they were pigmented, though lightly to moderately powdery, blendable, and had decent wear. The shimmers were more of a mixed bag, and I have b...

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gold Edition Highliners Reviews & Swatches

Oh My Gold (102) Marc Jacobs Beauty Oh My Gold (102) Highliner Gel Crayon ($26.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a medium gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen with light sparkle throughout. The texture felt smooth and glided readily across my lash line, but it didn’t deposit color as evenly as other shades in the formula–I think that added bit of larger sparkle pushed the base color around a bit. It had semi-opaque coverage...

ColourPop Aura & Out Palette Review & Swatches

Aura and Out Colour Pop Aura and Out 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new eyeshadow palette with five more matte eyeshadows, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter. The mattes were actually better-performing, while the shimmers left a bit to be desired. The matte shades were more substantial, more velvety with greater pigmentation without sheering out too readily. New Age applied decently, while Soul Si...

If you’re someone who tends to apply their more metallic eyeshadows with a fingertip or a dampened brush, I expect that you’ll enjoy the palette a lot; two of the shimmer shades were...

Charlotte Tilbury Desert Haze Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Desert Haze Charlotte Tilbury Desert Haze Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is an all-matte quad that features warmer-toned neutrals that still had some saturation but were more toned-down–not as vivid in a way. All four shades had rich pigmentation, while the textures were soft and blendable with light powderiness–mostly present in the pans–that made it easy to use. ...

Sunphoria (Feminine Wiles) MAC Sunphoria (Feminine Wiles) Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish that was slightly more sparkly than other shades in the same formula. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and blendable without being too firmly or too softly pressed into the pan, though it wasn’t quite as creamy as other shades in the line. It had good p...

Palette 06 Natasha Denona Palette 06 Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) includes three more neutral shades with a pop of teal and blue. Unfortunately, three of the five shades were under-performing as they were drier and more powdery with two being sheerer as well. The two more intense shimmers had good pigmentation and applied much better. Palette 06 ...

Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Four Twenty Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, 10-pan palette that features nine matte shades and one shimmer shade. The majority of the eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but they were on the more powdery side, which resulted in light to moderate fallout. The two deepest matte shades took more effort to blend out, though they seemed workable to me. ...

The product adhered evenly without being prone to sheering out but also dried down quickly and stayed in place. It wore well for over 10 hours without fading or...

NARS Orgasm Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Orgasm NARS Orgasm Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that is inspired by the brand’s Orgasm and Orgasm X blushes. It’s a very light-leaning quad, so it was hard to get diverse looks out of it. I’d say it’s more suitable for someone who likes lighter tones and tends to work with one or two shades per look. The dustiness of the matte coral only made it harder to get contrast using the four shades. ...

Natasha Denona Palette 05 Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Palette 05 Natasha Denona Palette 05 Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) includes all shimmers, though two shades were more satin-to-pearl, but I suspect most will pair this with existing matte shades they enjoy. I felt like the quality was too mixed at this price point to justify, and while there were slight improvements I noted compared to the very first iterations I tried, there was still room for improvement for three of th...

The two shimmers were exceptionally lovely...

Despite being deeper matte shades, they blended out fairly well over bare skin and lasted for eight to nine hours. Alchemy 2.0 gave me a bit of fallout, but B...

For those who don’t already have a plethora of ColourPop palettes, it might appeal, but there was a fair amount of overlap with past releases (more current and further in the past). The performance is consistent with more rece...
