CoverGirl Molten Black (300), Fired-Up Pink (305), Red-Hot (345) Flamed Out Shadow Pots

CoverGirl Molten Black (300) Flamed Out Shadow Pot ($3.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark black with silver sparkle. It had good color payoff both wet and dry, though it is more sparkly when applied with a damp brush. The texture was somewhat soft, not as gritty or as powdery as some of the other shades in the range. Urban Decay Oil Slick is less sparkly. Lancome The New Black is darker. Chanel Mirifique is darker, cream product. Sugarpill Stella is darker. See comparison swatches.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Newport Nights Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette

Wet ‘n’ Wild Newport Nights Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) consists of five different shades of eyeshadow. It’s new for summer and is part of a limited edition launch from Wet ‘n’ Wild. I bought all of the original Centerstage Photo Op palettes when they released several months ago (and they seem to be all permanent now), and I didn’t have good luck then. Initially, when I swatched Newport Nights, I had more hope, as they were all more pigmented and a lot softer than the ones I had tried previously.

MAC Smokeluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Smokeluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “frosty pink white, deep bronze, carbon black, deep grey and platinum.” #2 was the sparkliest shade, so it was the only one that seemed like it might be prone to fall out. I’ve been wearing this palette together for just over four hours, and there’s very little sparkle underneath my eye thus far, so hopefully there’s not too much more between now and the eight-hour mark. Based on my experience with the wear of these eyeshadows to this point, I expect the others to wear without creasing and might show some signs of fading after nine hours or so. The texture of this palette was slightly less silky compared to the others.

MAC Pinkluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Pinkluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “frost white pink, bright frosty pink, deep violet, blackened purple with purple pearl and blackened plum.”  The first two shades seem too similar to have included both in this particular palette–if they had been really cool and really warm-toned, rather than closer to the middle, it would have worked better.  #1, 2, and 4 were sparkly enough to have some fall out issues.  I’ve only been wearing this palette for three hours now, but there is some minor fall out currently (and based on the wear of the other four palettes, I would expect moderate fall out after eight hours but no creasing).  #4 was also hard to apply with even, opaque coverage, even though I used it damp.

MAC Pastelluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Pastelluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “bright champagne with pearl, peach pink with pearl, light pink, bright lavender and dusty grey.”  This was the hardest palette to use of the six MAC launched, because four of the five shades had incredibly crumbly, almost gritty, textures that were just so filled with sparkle that the sparkle got everywhere during application, after, and really stuck to the skin.  I initially applied these shades this morning, and after nine hours of wear, most of what was applied on the lid seems to be underneath my eye and on my cheeks.  Even applying all of the shades with a damp brush didn’t give great results on the lid from the get-go.  The only shade that wasn’t a pain to use was #5.  The eye that I wore this palette on was watering all day (and the other one only started watering towards the end).

MAC Greenluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Greenluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “light peach, bright champagne with pearl, dark olive, blackened green with gold pearl and deep forest green with pearl.” Greenluxe is not really as green as you’d expect, so if you were wary, you might still like this but if you are a fiend for green, you’ll be missing those.  #2 and #4 were the two that were very fall-out prone.  I wore this palette on one eye, and after nine hours of wear, there is no creasing, but there is a noticeable amount of fall out–the sparkles in this are finer, so they’re not as large or as visible as glitter would be. I did experience fading with #4 and #5 that was noticeable after seven and a half hours of wear.
