Cle de Peau 102 Calm Eye Color Duo (Refill)

102 Calm

Cle de Peau 102 Calm Eye Color Duo ($55.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a medium, warm-toned pink and a light, pinky-peach. The two created a rather soft look, so I’m not sure if it will create a perfect one-and-done look for everyone, but if you like your pinks and are normally a fan of the softness of the Cle de Peau formula, you may enjoy it.

The formula is supposed to have a “silky” feel, be moisturizing on the lids (though it is a powder formula), long-wearing, and have true-to-pan color. I like the effect of Cle de Peau’s eyeshadows on the lid; I think that “moisturizing” aspect of them makes them sit well on the lid as time passes, where they meld well to bare skin. I find that they can be semi-opaque to opaque, more buildable and very easy to wear as a wash of color, if desired. The eyeshadows are rose-scented, though I only just noticed the scent with the compact open but not applied.

As a FYI, Cle de Peau sells the duos as a pan-only, which is not magnetized but you could stick a magnet to it so it would adhere to most freestyle palettes, or purchase their case for $25.

Natural Love

Too Faced Natural Love Ultimate Neutral Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.90 oz.) includes 30 eyeshadows in varying shades of pinks, golds, and various neutral tones with some mattes and many shimmers. It’s housed in a large, cardboard palette and includes several shades from past neutral palettes they’ve released along with “brand new” shades.

It’s not the worst Too Faced palette I’ve encountered, but it’s not their best work–there are highlights and total misses within the palette, which is unsurprising as the brand’s track record with these larger palettes has been disappointing over the last couple of years. I think if you use primer, aren’t terribly concerned with having rich coverage in one layer, and like your neutrals, it’s not the worst way to spend your money. Too Faced’s formula–even when better–has always been the type (thin, a little powdery) that works significantly better over primer for coverage, blendability, and longevity.

ColourPop Ego Pressed Shadow ($5.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage, which went on evenly, but the texture ran a little dry and dusty, so I had a bit of fallout during application and felt like some of the shimmer pulled away as I blended it out. It started to fade on me after seven and a half hours of wear.

Solar Exposure

Tom Ford Solar Exposure Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes four eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one blush. If you’re normally a fan of Tom Ford’s eyeshadow quads (the regular kind), then I’d expect you would likely find the eyeshadows similar in quality. The deepest shade was sheerer but buildable, but it would be best over a primer. The cheek products are nice enough but are not quite as dense or as silky as the original powder blush formula but aren’t quite as thin as the current blush formula

Revel

Tarte Revel Metallic Shadow ($14.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage–just shy of opaque–that applied evenly and smoothly on the lid. The texture was soft, a smidgen loose so there was some excess product kicked up in the pan, but it was easy to work with as it was blendable and adhered well to bare skin. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

The Metallic Shadow formula is supposed to have “smooth payoff” that have “lasting vibrancy with no fallout” and are “ultra-pigmented.” They are also designed to be removable, so you can easily put them into an empty palette. The original set of shades were released in plastic compacts, but the most recent release featured them in cardboard compacts. The formula is typically very pigmented, smooth, and blendable with good wear (around eight hours). They work well and are easy to work with, and I’m glad to see that they brand has continued to expand their color selection in this formula.
