Hi-Maintenance

ColourPop Hi-Maintenance Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four eyeshadows (that can be removed) in a slim, cardboard palette. The eyeshadows can also be purchased individually for $5 each. This palette was a miss for me, as the two matte shades were rather powdery and under-pigmented.

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” For me, the new eyeshadow formula has been hit or miss with the more shimmery shades tending to perform better than the mattes, as their major downside was the lack of pigmentation, but they were buildable, so that made them workable. I felt like, on average, ColourPop’s powder formula wore shorter than most formulas on me with more noticeable fading. Primer definitely helped but still seemed to be shorter than other brands (over the same primer).

Extragalactic

Urban Decay Extragalactic Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark, plummy burgundy with warm, reddish undertones and flecks of pink, copper, and plum sparkle. The Moondust formula is supposed to have “minimal fallout” that “feels like a cream, but goes on like a powder.” They can be used wet for “extra intense color payout.” The eyeshadow had mostly opaque dry and totally opaque coverage applied damp, but the big difference was in how much smoother the powder applied with a damp brush. It had a fairly soft texture, though there was quite a bit of sparkle to it, so I could feel that by touch (not rough… just sparkly). It applied decently to bare skin but is a shade I’d apply over a glitter adhesive or with a damp brush to minimize fallout and improve the overall longevity of the product (six and a half hours dry, eight hours damp with some fallout either way).

Urban Decay Relish Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff paired with a smooth, velvety consistency that was very blendable and easy to work with. It seemed a touch thinner than some of Urban Decay’s best matte eyeshadows, but it did not sheer out too easily, so it did not cause any problems for me. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Urban Decay 1985 Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark magenta purple with pink undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a heavier hand or two layers patted on (not swept). The texture was firmer in the pan and a bit drier overall, though I had no issues blending and diffusing the shade on the lid. On me, the color lasted for just over eight hours before fading noticeably.

The Shining Hour

MAC The Shinnig Hour Dazzleshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes four sparkling eyeshadows in shades of white, gold, peach, and brown. The Dazzleshadow formula is supposed to be very sparkly with a “3D effect” with “stay-true” adhesion that has “minimal fallout.” They’re fun and sparkly, but they perform best as sheer washes of sparkle, patted over a more pigmented product, or applied over a glitter adhesive. They are pretty dismal on their own–sheerer, drier, fallout-prone, and short wearing–and are improved when applied damp–better pigmentation, smoother coverage, less fallout–but still have their share of problems without more help (tacky base, layered over a more pigmented eyeshadow, etc.). I noticed that the eyeshadows in the quad seemed to be drier and looser in the pan compared to the singles I’ve tried in the past.

MAC The Best of Everything Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition smoky palette. I love the color concept, and the four shades complement each other well, but I wasn’t thrilled with the performance of two shades (one was incredibly disappointing!).
