Sun Worship

Tom Ford Sun Worship Cream & Powder Eye Color ($62.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes a glittery, powder eyeshadow in the top portion of the duo and then a cream eyeshadow housed in the bottom portion of the duo. The cream eyeshadow is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented” while the powder eyeshadow is supposed to “intensify eyes with alluring shimmer.” For those familiar with Tom Ford, the cream eyeshadow is the Cream Color for Eyes formula, which I’ve found to be pigmented, easy to use, and long-wearing, while the powder eyeshadow is comparable to the glittery eyeshadow often included in the brand’s eyeshadow quads, which tend to be sparkly/glittery with sheerer base coverage and can have minimal to some fallout. The two shades are so similar to each other that the major difference was in pigmentation and texture (cream compared to powder), but I felt like it was rather redundant to have them be that similar–I think the duos where the two shades have more notable color differences gives them reason to be layered and mixed for varying effects.

I wish the powder eyeshadow’s actual color was more different compared to the cream eyeshadow, as it would have made it a more versatile duo to me.

Belle-Ile

NARS Belle-Ile Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a golden, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage, which I was able to build to nearly full coverage with three layers of product. The texture was smooth, slightly creamy but not quite as emollient as most shades in the range. There was some unevenness in the texture as I layered the color, though it did not appear patchy. I noticed creasing after six hours of wear.

Cracked Emerald

MAC Cracked Emerald Paint ($22.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a vibrant, medium emerald green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, green-teal pearl. It was smooth, creamy without being too wet, and easy to work with; the coverage was easily opaque but just as easily sheered out for a softer, sheerer look. It dried down and set, so it actually lasted for a solid nine hours on me before creasing faintly.

The Paint formula is supposed to be a cream eyeshadow that dries to a “powdery finish in just ten seconds” that is “long-wearing” and can be applied from “sheer to full.” Many years ago, I remember this formula being one of the must-have primers/bases for making eyeshadows pop, and MAC has discontinued all but two shades at this point, so it was a real surprise (and treat) to see four new, limited edition shades released recently. I highly recommend un-crimping the tube once or twice, which alleviated issues I had with the tube squirting out more products than I wanted.

Glamourize Me

MAC Glamourize Me Cream Colour Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) features six Cream Colour Shadows. The formula is supposed to have “medium, buildable colour” that is long-wearing, water-resistant, and non-drying. They felt a lot like the Cream Colour Base formula to me: soft, very emollient, and almost “greasy” in a way. They go on thin and have a slight tackiness, and they are hard to build-up or use more than one or two shades at a time, as they look uneven and patchy with more than that. The wear ranged from a few hours to six hours, but a couple of shades creased soon after applying but did not worsen for a few hours later (think of it as “initial creasing” because they don’t really dry down). I think the formula is most suited used all over the lid as a wash or as a lightly tacky, wet base for powder eyeshadows.

Steele

ColourPop Steele Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a very pale pink with lavender and silver glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was not buildable, and the consistency felt drier than average so it did not blend out as easily. I had the best luck using my fingertip to blend out the color (I think the warmth of my skin helped). The color lasted for nine hours before creasing subtly.
