Coloured Raine Clutch Pearls Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright white with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was soft, a little powdery but there was a creaminess present that seemed to help it bind better when pressed and patted on the lid. It had good pigmentation and blended out well. On me, I noticed fading after eight hours of wear.

28 Anthracite Black

Make Up For Ever 28 Anthracite Black Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep black with cooler, bluish undertones and blue, red, and silver pearl. Of all the shades I tried, this one had the greatest difference between dry and damp application.

Applied dry, it was softer, less intense, and warmer in overall tone, whereas damp application was intensely pigmented, very deep, and more metallic with a stronger, bluish sheen. The texture was soft, not quite as finely milled as other shades but still smooth. I tried to apply it as a cheek highlighter, but it was difficult to blend it out with the color looking patchy/cratered. I tried different brushes, using less product, and so forth, but I could never get it to apply evenly. It worked best as an eyeshadow, and it had the most impact with a damp brush, or else it was more like a soft, pearly black instead of a deep, inky black. On the lips, it was decent but was harder to manipulate for an even finish on light and mid-tone colors as any unevenness was very obvious–it worked well over black, though!

Thessalonique

NARS Thessalonique Eyeshadow Duo ($35.00 for 0.14 oz.) features a soft, pale pink with a muted mauve–both have shimmer–that work really well together for a look but can easily be incorporated with other eyeshadows you own. I like that the two shades can create a rather foolproof look as a standalone product.

Chiang Mai

NARS Chiang Mai Eyeshadow Duo ($35.00 for 0.14 oz.) features a shimmery bluish-teal and a shimmery red brown. I think you can combine the two shades together, but they were easier for me to pair with other shades for a better gradient. The left shade could be better and often looked more faded applied than it did in the pan, while the right shade was easy to use.

Anastasia Custom Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was somewhat dusty. The eyeshadow had a tendency to sheer out to semi-opaque coverage without a primer underneath to help it adhere to the lid better. It lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me.

Editor’s Note: I’ve previously reviewed all of these shades when they appeared in palettes. During the brand’s Black Friday sale, I picked up the permanent, single pans of all of the palette shades to see if there were any differences/improvements.

Coloured Raine Who Me Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a deep coppery bronze with warm, red undertones and a frosted sheen. The consistency was soft, dense without being firm or stiff in the pan, and very blendable on the lid. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied well without primer and lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing.
