Club Tropicana

BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana Foil Eyeshadow Palette ($12.50 for 1.16 oz.) is a collection of brighter pops of color in the brand’s more shimmery formula. I’ve reviewed the Original Foil Eyes and more recent Foil Eyes 2 palettes in the past, and I find that the original is the easiest to work with across the palette, but Club Tropicana was the worst/hardest to use as-is. I think if you’re someone who enjoys very shimmery, sparkly, or metallic shades and typically works with a dampened brush or an adhesive base, you’ll find this palette useful and easier to use. There were just several shades that required a dampened brush to help improve binding and adhesion (for evenness) to the lid, and for me, traditional eyeshadow primer doesn’t do much as the issue was more texture/formula than a matter of pigmentation or longevity.

One thing I noticed was that the two previous Foil Eyeshadow Palettes contained 1.58 oz./1.60 oz. of product, whereas this one only contained 1.16 oz. The ingredient list was the same between Club Tropicana and Foil Eyes 2 (but the Original has a slightly different list/order of ingredients), so I’m not sure what accounted for such a dramatic decrease in weight. Even at 1.16 oz., it works out to be 0.04 oz. per shade, which is close to the average full-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.).

Tawny Glow

Bobbi Brown Tawny Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was richly pigmented with a finish that was noticeable but still more moderate than full-on metallic.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The finish was about the same whether I wore it with semi-sheer coverage or more opaque coverage, though if I applied the barest amount, then maybe I could see something subtle about the luminosity on my skin. The powder had a smooth, soft consistency–softer than a lot of similar formulations, where they can feel a smidgen dry to the touch, though they look lovely on!–that was easy to apply, blend out, and use on the skin. I found that the rosy tone of this came through more as I applied and blended out the product in practice than initially swatched. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

Sloane

Jouer Sloane High Pigment Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a medium coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had a lightweight, thin consistency that was smooth and just creamy enough to spread easily across the lips but did not feel too slippery while worn. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly with very faint streaking along the edges from the applicator. There was a faint amount of product visible in my lip lines, though I did not detect it from a normal viewing distance. The gloss lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.

The formula is supposed to have “full-coverage color that glides on smoothly and moisturizes the lips” with a “non-sticky” texture. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque or more pigmented with a thin, creamy texture that felt more like a hybrid between gloss and liquid lipstick than a true gloss. Despite being thinner, the gloss spread well over the lips and most shades applied evenly. There were a few shades that seemed prone to settling into my lip lines, though. They were average wearing from three to five hours with no feathering or bleeding. The formula was lightly hydrating and non-sticky with a sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Bobbi Brown Sunrise Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cooler undertones and warmer pink and gold shimmer along with faint gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without trouble.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The finish was frosted to metallic with slight sparkle particles visible on the skin, but the more I buffed and blended the powder on my cheeks, the less I saw. It added a smidgen of noticeable color to my skin tone, but it may work more as a highlighting blush on lighter skin tones. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too dense nor so soft that it became powdery in the pan. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on m e before fading.

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 1.98 oz.) is a new, limited edition 35-pan eyeshadow palette. It’s actually my first time trying Morphe (and I did purchase two other palettes from them when I bought this one), so we’ll see how that goes. This palette is currently sold out but will be restocked in the future (I don’t know when), and hopefully, I’ll have time to test all the shades before it’s out of stock for good–I’ll certainly try!
