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...

Fenty Beauty Triple Dip Diamond Bomb Diamond Veil Palette Review & Swatches

Triple Dip Fenty Beauty Triple Dip Diamond Bomb Diamond Veil Palette ($42.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes three, sparkling highlighters with two new shades and one previously-released shade (Fenty Glow). The key takeaways one needs to know about this formula is that it is high-sparkle with a sheerer base and a consistency that can be fussy (ha, ha) to work with. I find fingertips to work the best for getting product from the compact to my s...

ColourPop Strike a Pose & Alt Rock Fresh Kiss Lip Cremes Reviews & Swatches

Strike a Pose ColourPop Strike a Pose Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($8.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a darker pink with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish, which took an hour or so to develop into a more soft matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, so I’d recommend using only one side of the applicator to get sheerer coverage if desired. The texture felt smooth, more velvety and lightweight, which ensured it was comfortab...

Huda Beauty Medium Glow Obsessions Mini Face Palette Review & Swatches

Medium Huda Beauty Medium Mini Glow Obsessions Face PaletteHuda Beauty Medium Mini Glow Obsessions Face Palette ($29.00 for 0.22 oz.) includes two gold highlighters and two copper highlighters (or blushes). The texture of the formula was where the palette fell short; it was firmer, denser, and thicker overall, which made it harder to pick up product evenly with a brush. In order to do so, I typically had to use my brush to push upwar...

Best NEW Eyeshadow Palettes for Fall.

When it comes to fall, I like to change things up just slightly when it comes to makeup. One of the easiest ways to change up a makeup look is with eyeshadow.I like to invest in eyeshadow palettes for variety and value. This fall is all about desert neutrals, golds, bronzes, and easy-going looks all around. Many of the makeup brands have eyeshadow palettes to fit the bill already in their arsenal, but some of them have tweaked it just a bit and launched new neutrals and dreamy golds for the new...

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...

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...

Clionadh Amour, Lacy, Pink Sugar, Prosecco Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Amour Clionadh Amour Shimmer Metallic Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was smooth, slightly more loosely-pressed, but it had good glide, which helped everything apply evenly and adhere smoothly without fallout. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.FURTHER READING: Formula Over...

Sydney Grace Shooting Star, Beach Bum, Peach Cobbler, Last Quest Loose Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Shooting Star Sydney Grace Shooting Star Loose Pigment ($6.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a very light, peachy beige with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It felt smooth and finely-milled to the touch, but there was enough binder in the formula to keep the powder weighed down in the pot and helped it adhere evenly to bare skin, even dry. It had rich color coverage that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading vis...

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...

Natasha Denona Macro Blade Liquid Liner Review & Swatches

Black Natasha Denona Black Macro Blade Liquid LinerNatasha Denona Black Macro Blade Liquid Liner ($26.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satiny sheen. The formula is supposed to be “long wearing” with “jet-black color payoff” that will not “smudge, budge, or fade over time.” It definitely did not dry down to a fully matte/flat matte finish, though it wasn’t visibly shimmery–just moderately shiny. ...

ColourPop Reflection, Touch the Sky, Colors of the Wind, Down in New Orleans Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Reflection ColourPop Reflection Super Shock Shadow is a darker, coppery-brown base with flecks of fine red and gold sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat unevenly as the base seemed to clump up a bit, so it was harder to get a really nice, even layer that didn’t look unblended. The texture was more emollient than the average shade within this formula as well. It lasted decently for nine hours be...

ColourPop Happy Thoughts Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Happy Thoughts ColourPop Happy Thoughts Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peach base with subtle, warmer rose undertones paired with lighter, more golden peach shimmer that gave it a lighter look once applied and blended out on skin. The texture felt wet to the touch, but it was smooth, emollient, and thinner (not in a bad way). The formula was cream-like initially but dried down to a powder once it came into co...

Under the Sea ColourPop Under the Sea Super Shock Shadow is a cool, minty green with a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a tendency to sheer out as it seemed to have too much slip, which also resulted in it looking uneven. I had the best luck applying it with a fluffier brush for a sheerer layer of color but couldn’t use it as a more opaque product well. It lasted decently for nine hours before fading a bit.FURTHE...
