Touch Me Baby

MAC Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two powder eyeshadows with one of them–Soba–being part of MAC’s permanent range. The two shades worked well paired together, but it was the type of duo that still made me want to reach for other shades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soba incorporated with Keep On Twinkling as the latter had a much more shimmery texture and sometimes mattes and shimmers do not play well together for blending/layering next to each other.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Midnight Fever

MAC Midnight Fever Dazzleshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two shades of Dazzleshadow, which is supposed to be an “eyeshadow with rich, stay-true pigments that impart a beautiful, twinkling sheen” that has “minimal fallout.” One of the shades–Let’s Boogie–is part of the permanent range and can be purchased individually for $18. The palette contains two full-sized eyeshadows, though, so it is a great value if you like both shades. The Dazzleshadow works best with a damp brush or over an adhesive base, as it helps intensify the sparkling finish and ensure better adhesion. The only issue is that using them damp can make them harder to blend out, so my technique is to apply them damp when using as a lid color or deeply in the crease but then using the product dry to layer and diffuse the edges.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Vermeer

Anastasia Vermeer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a smooth, frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, finely-milled consistency that applied beautifully to the lid as it adhered evenly. This eyeshadow appears in the Modern Renaissance palette and is quite similar, but the single had a better texture–less powdery–and wasn’t messy to use. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The new single eyeshadows will be available at online retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd but are available through Anastasia now.

Sunset

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) includes 15 eyeshadows in various warm-toned hues–a lot of red/orange-toned coppers, oranges, and browns–with a mix of matte, shimmer, and sparkle finishes. I think it is actually one of the best Natasha Denona palettes that has been released with respect to cohesiveness and quality. I also feel like 15 is a solid number of shades to create a curated, cohesive, and useful palette from, and for the brand, while still pricey, still a more palatable price compared to the larger 28-pan palettes. The more sparkly shades included in this palette were a serious improvement from the Star palette as well, though I would still recommend using them damp for maximum performance. The majority of the eyeshadows also wore better without primer on me this time around than they have in the past.

It’s a real shame that this palette is limited edition–I think the brand should consider adding it to the permanent line-up or else doing a major re-release. I know that some retailers that carried this palette are working on a limited restock, but I have not heard anything solid or a confirmed date yet. Alternatively, an excellent palette with a similar vibe (very warm-toned) is Viseart Warm Mattes, which I would then supplement with shimmers within one’s stash or some of these single eyeshadows or BH Foil Eyes, which has a lot of frost/metallic shades.

Edit: As of 2:54PM PST, Sephora has it back in stock.

Enchanted

Anastasia Enchanted Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a deep, violet purple with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was rather dense, almost thick compared to most of the brand’s formulas (including other frost/metallic shades) but is incredibly pigmented. I would recommend using a flat synthetic brush or medium dome-shaped eyeshadow brush (I used MAC’s 239 just fine with this). If you’re familiar with the more recent silicone-heavy eyeshadows that have released lately, you’ll enjoy the formula as it has that same creamy, smooth feel. The eyeshadow adhered beautifully to bare skin, still blended out, and stayed on for nine hours on me.

The new single eyeshadows will be available at online retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd but are available through Anastasia now.

Undress

Dior Undress High Fidelity Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, permanent eyeshadow palette with muted, mid-tone neutrals. One shade was darker, but the other four shades were quite light overall. It has a new formula that’s supposed to have “highly pigmented” color with “spectacular staying power.” While several of the other palettes were decent to good in quality, this one missed the mark as more shades were slightly dusty to powdery with sheerer coverage that did not wear as long.
