MAC Hypnotizing Holiday Shadeshifter Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Behind the Curtain MAC Behind the Curtain Shadeshifter Duochrome Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a silvery lilac with a sparkling, metallic sheen that shifted from cooler, more silvery lilac to warmer pink. The texture was incredibly emollient, which helped the larger sparkle particles transfer and adhere to skin without lots of fallout. I found that I had to take care and do gentle blending to avoid excessive fallout, though, an...

JD Glow Pastel Iridescence Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Viola JD Glow Viola Shimmer Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cooler undertones and a pink-to-violet shifting finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was more prone to sheering out. The consistency was soft, blendable but slightly powdery and thinner than most of the brand’s eyeshadows. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.FURTHER READING: Formula Overview ...

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...

ColourPop Just a Glitch Palette Review & Swatches

Just a Glitch ColourPop Just a Glitch 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes two matte shades with three shimmer shades. The shimmery shades had a drier feel to them that made them harder to apply to bare skin, so this palette would be ideal for someone who tends to use eyeshadow primer and prefers to use fingertips/wet brush for application. Ingredients ...

Dior Night Bird Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Night Bird (459) Dior Night Bird (459) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette from the brand’s fall collection. All five shades had semi-opaque to opaque color coverage, were blendable, and long-lasting. The formula felt like a gel-powder hybrid, so they have a more “baked” quality to them, which can require a slightly heavier hand if one is used to working with more powdery formul...

ColourPop Waffle Cone Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Waffle Cone ColourPop Waffle Cone Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a shimmery, pale green paired with three mattes (light brown, deep brown, and light teal). The shimmery green was slightly sheerer and didn’t last quite as long as the mattes, but the mattes were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with overall. Waffle Cone L...

Lethal Cosmetics Breach & Cipher Glitch Liquid Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Breach Lethal Cosmetics Breach Glitch Liquid Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) seemed to have a transparent base with multichromatic sparkle that shifted between copper to blue to green. I found the shift harder to detect and less dimensional than one might have expected, unfortunately. The texture was very watery, thin, and the larger particles tended to clump up whenever I used a fingertip to apply or blend out. With a brush, it was ...

High Tide ColourPop High Tide 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is an aqua and teal-themed color story that included six matte shades (or mostly matte shades!) and three shimmer shades. All nine shades were semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, fairly blendable, and easy enough to work with. Ingredients High Tide LE Limited Edition...

Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Crystal Nebula Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with fine, lighter pearl and a soft, luminous sheen. It imparted a glowing, almost wet-like shine to my skin that wasn’t overtly shimmery but was more intense than a lot of other liquid highlighters on the market (which are often very sheer and lower in pearl). It had a sheerer base, but the intensity of the glow was ...

Rumor Has It ColourPop Rumor Has It 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is an aqua and blue-hued color story that included three matte shades and two shimmer shades. It was a poor performing palette from the brand; while one shade was exceptionally nice, the rest were lesser with three being particularly disappointing. Rumor Has It P ...

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...

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...

ILIA Decades DayLite Highlighting Powder Review & Swatches

Decades ILIA Decades DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had a moderate sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture applied in a single layer, but the intensity of the glow was definitely buildable (as marketed) to a highly-reflective, metallic finish with a second layer. The pigmentation was mostly opaque in one layer, so it wasn’...

Linda Hallberg Virgio Infinity Highlighter Review & Swatches

Virgio Linda Hallberg Cosmetics Virgio Infinity Highlighter ($21.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a soft, yellowy gold with a smooth, metallic sheen. Per the brand, it can be used with a dampened brush for an even more intense, metallic finish, which was apt, but it was fairly intense on its own and was just shy of texture-emphasizing territory on my skin. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient with noticeable glide–it almost felt wet to...

NABLA Cosmetics Wild Berry Cutie Palette Review & Swatches

Wild Berry NABLA Cosmetics Wild Berry Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, six-pan palette that included three mattes, one semi-matte, and two intense metallics. All of the shades had good pigmentation that ranged from semi-opaque to full coverage in a single layer. 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...

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...

Enchanted Mysteries Linda Hallberg Cosmetics Enchanted Mysteries Eyeshadow Quad ($59.00 for 0.88 oz.) is a limited edition palette that came out in the later part of the holiday season but is still available for purchase. 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...

It includes six new, exclusive Moondust shades, which is the brand’s more sparkly eyeshadow formula (and these do not contain any plastic glitter). For someone looking for sparkling, pigmented, and foolproof shades, I don’t think this is it, but for som...

Fenty Beauty Pastel Frost (8) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

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...

This worked best as a layering product on top of anything else to add sparkle and shimmer as it had semi-sheer coverage that didn’t build up well. The texture felt more watery compared to other shades, but most of the shimm...

People Are Praising Urban Decay For Showing Photos Of "Real" Skin

Scrolling through the millions of photos showing people with immaculate complexions on Instagram, it's all too easy to lose sight of what's real. Thanks to apps like FaceTune, BeautyPlus, and Photoshop (to name but a few), erasing breakouts, fine lines, and pores from pictures before sharing them to the grid has become second nature for a lot of makeup artists and beauty brands.But Urban Decay is embracing "real" skin, and their efforts aren't going unnoticed by their 9.8 million followers.
