Love in the Glades

MAC Love in the Glades Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is like a smoky take on tropical greens and blues. The palette had a mix of cooler undertones and neutral undertones, which made it one of the cooler-toned palettes that I’ve come across. The lightest shade (Grey Stroke) was the biggest miss in the palette, but the other six applied fairly well, had good pigmentation, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer).

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

This collection launches on May 18th.

Gold Griot

Urban Decay Gold Griot Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows (0.04 oz. each) in more of a neutral palette–the twist was that most of the shades are warmer in undertone, but then there was a more neutral, medium gray (BK) and a slightly cool-toned black (Pseudonym) thrown into the mix. (For me, the gray was hard to incorporate with the rest!) The majority of the palette was fairly good, though the gray (BK) and light brown (Levitation) shades could have been more pigmented.

Editor’s Note: While Basquiat’s state approached Urban Decay to create the collection, the collection is not without concerns from those who have been drawn in and inspired by Basquiat’s work. Some of the artist’s supporters have expressed concern over the commercialization of the artist’s work (generally) and the lack of a model of color in the collection’s campaign, both said to be inconsistent with some of the themes shown throughout Basquiat’s body of work. A third issue raised is with respect to Urban Decay’s usage of drug-related names (like Junkie, Druggie, Bump, etc.) when Basquiat died of a heroin overdose at 27 years old and how those two can be reconciled. Others who enjoy Basquiat’s work are excited for the collaboration and the acknowledgment of the artist’s influence, along with the possibility of making his work more widely known. As always, we invite thoughtful and critical discussion and debate but ask everyone to be respectful.

Tenant

Urban Decay Tenant Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows (0.04 oz. each) in various colorful hues. This is the type of palette that I think works best as a complementary palette to other eyeshadows one already owns, though there are looks that can be created solely with the shades in the palette–I just think it’ll be easier to incorporate some of the pops of color from this palette with transition shades and the like from your stash. There was one eyeshadow (Neo) which was a miss for me, but the other shades were fairly good. If you normally use an eyeshadow primer, I think this palette (with the exception of Neo) would work quite well.

Paradiso

Tom Ford Paradiso Cream & Powder Eye Color ($62.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes a sparkling, powder eyeshadow and a cream eyeshadow. I’m a huge fan of Tom Ford’s Cream Color for Eyes formula, as it is typically very pigmented, easy to work with, and long-wearing, but the sparkling Eye Color I’m often less enthusiastic over. The two products worked well together, but I would have preferred a more contrasting powder eyeshadow to pair with the cream eyeshadow to make it a more versatile duo. The cream eyeshadow was excellent–pigmented, long-wearing, blendable–while the powder eyeshadow was decent but could have been more pigmented and had less fallout over time.

Pirates of the Caribbean

LORAC Pirates of the Caribbean Eyeshadow Palette ($52.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes 18 eyeshadows with a mix of shimmers and mattes. The formula did feel a lot like their PRO formula (which it is supposed to be), though some shades seemed thinner and just as dusty/powdery as the original PRO formula can be, so I still had trouble applying the shades without a primer underneath. An eyeshadow primer helped but some shades still fell short even over primer (they would still sheer out and look more faded on than they did in their pans).

Nuance

Viseart Nuance Theory Palette ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six eyeshadows in warm, shimmery variations. Five of the six eyeshadows were decent to nice, but one was a real miss–firmer but drier, where the eyeshadow flaked off and was a total mess to use on the lid, even with primer. I wish all six eyeshadows had performed exceptionally well, but the palette left me a little disappointed, given how stellar Viseart eyeshadows usually are.
