It darkens quite a bit on lips and appears pinker as well. It had semi-opaque coverage which went on evenly, and it was somewhat buildable (it’s supposed to be buildable).

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades (all of the shades are also available individually in the permanent range). Two things worth noting: there are several repeats in this palette if you already own several of their past releases, and the amount of product in this is less than the last two volumes and $2 more. Oh, and there are, again, no matte shades. It’s such a shame that they’ve continued to repeat shades when they have 200+ shades in their range to choose from (see this sheet for repeats). If you haven’t picked up a lot of the brand’s palettes or singles previously, it IS a good palette overall — pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use.

Natasha Denona Skin, Suede, Shell, Flamingo Eyeshadows

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.08 oz.) comes in 66 shades with four distinct finishes (Matte, Duo-Chrome, Metallic, and Sparkling). According to the brand, the eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “full, rich and intense color that won’t fade out, be “long-lasting,” and smooth. The majority of the shimmery shades were very pigmented with a soft consistency that was something just right and other times a little prone to crumbling/loosening in the pan, while the mattes were smooth but quite powdery, which resulted it color that didn’t adhere to bare skin as readily. The texture of most shades is soft, blendable, and most of the shimmery shades I’ve tested applied well to bare skin. The wear was fairly consistent, but there was some variance from shade to shade (which didn’t seem related to finish). The wear has ranged from five to eight hours, depending on the shade. Primer helps with longevity, adding two to three hours to the shade’s no-primer wear time, but they seem like shorter-wearing eyeshadows compared to most powder formulas I’ve tried.
