Jouer Skinny Dip Ultra Foil Shimmer Shadows Palette ($40.00 for 0.26 oz.) includes six, “intense, shimmering metallic” eyeshadows that can be used together or as a “glittering accent.” They’re supposed to be long-wearing, highly pigmented, and crease-resistant; and the founder also stated that the formula could be “used as a liner with its wet-to-dry finish,” which I read as that it could also be used damp. The formula was lovely to work with as long as you enjoy an intense shine with moderate to high amounts of sparkle. All six eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, were blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing. They worked well with a dampened brush as well, but it did not seem like a must in order to enjoy the palette by any means.

Terre Brulee (806)

Chanel Terre Brulee (806) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark coppery brown with warm, yellow undertones and a golden shimmer with a subtle touch of gold sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with just a touch more product patted on top, while it was also blendable to semi-sheer coverage if desired. The texture was smooth, thin, creamy without being too slippery, and seemed to take a bit longer to dry down than other shades in the line-up. The latter made it easier to diffuse and blend out some of the edges. Once applied, it lasted for 14 hours without any changes.

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” There are eight shades (view swatches) released with one (Obscur) being limited edition. Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

Chanel Bronze Antique (32) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was smooth, soft, and blendable but was somewhat dusty in the pan and prone to sheering out a bit on the lid. There were also a few larger sparkles that seemed to spread away from the color itself and resulted in a bit of fallout. It had opaque pigmentation, though, and applied evenly to bare skin. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

The formula is described as a “richly-pigmented” and “longwearing.” There are 16 shades available, and I’ve tried eight of them and have found that most are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with soft, blendable textures that are often on the dustier side. Some shades were prone to sheering out on the lid and applied best by layering and building up the color than trying to pack it on. They lasted between six and seven and a half hours on me, which was below average. I think Chanel’s formula in their quads is better overall, as they are not as dusty but still are blendable. I think the quad formula also sat better on the lids.

Touch Me Baby

MAC Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two powder eyeshadows with one of them–Soba–being part of MAC’s permanent range. The two shades worked well paired together, but it was the type of duo that still made me want to reach for other shades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soba incorporated with Keep On Twinkling as the latter had a much more shimmery texture and sometimes mattes and shimmers do not play well together for blending/layering next to each other.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Midnight Fever

MAC Midnight Fever Dazzleshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two shades of Dazzleshadow, which is supposed to be an “eyeshadow with rich, stay-true pigments that impart a beautiful, twinkling sheen” that has “minimal fallout.” One of the shades–Let’s Boogie–is part of the permanent range and can be purchased individually for $18. The palette contains two full-sized eyeshadows, though, so it is a great value if you like both shades. The Dazzleshadow works best with a damp brush or over an adhesive base, as it helps intensify the sparkling finish and ensure better adhesion. The only issue is that using them damp can make them harder to blend out, so my technique is to apply them damp when using as a lid color or deeply in the crease but then using the product dry to layer and diffuse the edges.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.
