California Dreaming

LORAC California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes. The palette runs warmer, but it seemed more like a neutral palette with pops of rose and mauve accents. The formula felt looser and drier overall; sort of like LORAC’s “filler” formula, when they put together more affordable palettes but aren’t part of their Pro collection (which always has a silkier, more refined feel). I find that this formula can be better or worse depending on the shades and finishes. The downsides of the formula tend to be that they are prone to fading more quickly and sheering out, so a good primer is an absolute must-have to make this palette wear and perform well.

Red-Hot Times Nine

MAC Red-Hot Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. For the types of colors and finishes included in the palette, it was actually not bad. I’d definitely suggest using this with a primer to improve blendability and pigmentation across the palette, though.

Coloured Raine Birthday Suit Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peach with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was soft, blendable, and smooth without being too powdery or too firm in the pan. It had great color payoff that applied evenly to the skin and lasted for eight hours on me.

Angel Face

Coloured Raine Angel Face Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a soft, medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t too powdery nor was it too firmly pressed in the pan, which made it easy to blend and diffuse on the lid. The eyeshadow wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

One of a Kind

ColourPop One of a Kind Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a rich berry and a shimmering, cranberry red. They worked well together, but the look was very dark and red-toned, which won’t work for everyone. Of all of the new duos, this one seemed like the one would be most versatile paired with other shades rather than used as a standalone duo. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection, but ColourPop is releasing them as singles today.

Meant to Be

ColourPop Meant to Be Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a shimmering, peachy-orange and a vibrant pink-coral. The lighter shade is very shimmery, and the texture was denser and had more substance to it compared to the darker coral, so they didn’t quite layer as well together as I would have liked. If I diffused the shimmery shade enough, it was workable, especially if I layered the darker coral over it rather than trying to get the shimmer to layer over the coral. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection, but ColourPop is releasing them as singles today.
