Solar Glow Times Nine

MAC Solar Glow Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. I’d characterize this palette by its finish–glittery–and as a result, it is difficult to use on its own (I’d recommend a glitter adhesive as a base), sheerer (which is by design when it comes to the Lustre finish but not so much for the other finishes), and short-wearing.

Semi-Sweet Times Nine

MAC Semi-Sweet Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. It’s a darker, more muted take on neutrals. This particular palette has more repeats than others–Bamboo and Carbon are permanent, Drawing a Blanc, Outre, Persuade, and Dance in the Dark are all repromotes–so you might want to check your stash for repeats! In general, I wish some of the shades were more blendable or more pigmented, but if you normally use primer, it significantly improved blendability and opacity, as MAC’s matte formula is very buildable.

Peanut Butter and Honey

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.38 oz.) contains nine eyeshadows, most of them neutral in type with a pop of darker yellow. It’s the pop of yellow that is “different” in a sea of warmer neutrals that we have seen (even by Too Faced!). The look I put together with this palette reminded me a lot of the one I did for Viseart Warm Mattes, but the latter was much easier to create. The Viseart palette is more expansive and well-rounded so the yellow shade worked more. Obviously, though, it’s over double the cost of Too Faced’s palette. They’re listed below, but if you already have a collection of warmer neutrals, you might consider picking up a single like ColourPop Paper Tiger or Make Up For Ever M408 Mustard to recreate the feel of this palette yourself.

It’s supposed to be scented with the smell of peanut butter and honey (duh), but it just smelled like sweet vanilla to me. I don’t know if my sense of smell was off or no, as the Sweet Peach palette definitely had a noticeably different scent than just vanilla.

Game Changer

ColourPop Game Changer Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a light, golden green with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had intense color payoff with a smooth, blendable texture that was a little looser in the pan, and it was easy to get too much product on the brush, so I’d recommend using a lighter touch and going easy initially! The color wore for just over eight hours on me.

Intermission

Makeup Geek Intermission Pigment ($12.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dirty bronze with warm, golden undertones and a frosted finish. This shade didn’t have much of a foiled or metallic/reflective finish–some sheen but definitely not nearly as reflective as other shades in the range. It had opaque pigmentation both dry and damp, but the damp application yielded a deeper, richer color overall that also applied a bit more smoothly, though this one was fairly easy to use even dry (I recommend pressing the brush into the cap a bit to avoid fallout). The texture was finely-milled and blendable, while the eyeshadow wore well for eight hours.

Tropic Cool Times Nine

MAC Tropic Cool Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows in an assortment of yellow, green, and blue. It’s a bolder, brighter set of shades, but it also had a very smoldering edge with the deeper blue and bluish-gray inclusions. As you might expect, the yellowy shades need a primer to look as they do in the pan, but I also had some trouble with two of the darker blues.
