Pretty Birdie

Pretty Vulgar Pretty Birdie Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.55 oz.) contains 12 eyeshadows in an arrangement of brighter, more colorful hues in a variety of finishes. The palette is made out of sturdy cardboard and has a large mirror underneath the lid. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth, color-rich, blendable” that is “long-wearing” and “supremely creamy.” The palette was fairly good–not perfect but surprisingly workable without a primer–with semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, slightly dusty textures, and six to eight-hour wear. If you normally wear eyeshadow primer, a lot of the issues iron themselves out.

ColourPop Chic-y Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.21 oz.) is one of two, limited edition palettes from the collaboration with iluvsarahii. I really feel like ColourPop has improved their powder eyeshadow formula from its initial launch, as their mattes are still very blendable and pigmented but seem smoother and less messy/powdery. While more basic in overall color scheme, the colors came together well and were of good quality, so if you’re in need of a warm-toned, neutral eyeshadow “quad,” this might be one to check out.

Talpa (14)

Chanel Talpa (14) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was finely-milled, soft, and lightly dusty in the pan, but it adhered well to bare skin when patted on. I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges. It had great pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

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.

Date Night

Coloured Raine Date Night Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a dark plum with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich, opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was smooth, not too firm or too soft in the pan, but didn’t feel as dense or as cream-like as some of the brand’s other eyeshadows (not a bad thing, just something I noticed). This shade started to fade on me after eight and a half hours of wear.

Skinny Dip

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.
