Identity

Pérsona Identity Eyeshadow Palette Review ($32.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows (each is 0.04 oz.) housed in a slim, cardboard palette. The brand is newer and only has only one product (this one!) available, and it is currently out of stock but a restock is coming soon. The brand described the formula as “highly pigmented” (but then also listed “buildable coverage,” which is my favorite contradiction but the brand’s swatches show opaque coverage, so that’s what I will hold it to). It’s an excellent eyeshadow palette for someone who likes slightly muted neutrals that are semi-opaque to opaque, long-wearing (around eight hours of wear), and very blendable. The shimmery shades had a tendency to “melt” on the lid, which made them more flattering on the lid and apply more seamlessly, while the mattes were easy to use. It is a little heavy on the mid-tones, so it may not work for all skin tones; I would love to see the brand release more curated palettes like these, though.

Club Tropicana

BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana Foil Eyeshadow Palette ($12.50 for 1.16 oz.) is a collection of brighter pops of color in the brand’s more shimmery formula. I’ve reviewed the Original Foil Eyes and more recent Foil Eyes 2 palettes in the past, and I find that the original is the easiest to work with across the palette, but Club Tropicana was the worst/hardest to use as-is. I think if you’re someone who enjoys very shimmery, sparkly, or metallic shades and typically works with a dampened brush or an adhesive base, you’ll find this palette useful and easier to use. There were just several shades that required a dampened brush to help improve binding and adhesion (for evenness) to the lid, and for me, traditional eyeshadow primer doesn’t do much as the issue was more texture/formula than a matter of pigmentation or longevity.

One thing I noticed was that the two previous Foil Eyeshadow Palettes contained 1.58 oz./1.60 oz. of product, whereas this one only contained 1.16 oz. The ingredient list was the same between Club Tropicana and Foil Eyes 2 (but the Original has a slightly different list/order of ingredients), so I’m not sure what accounted for such a dramatic decrease in weight. Even at 1.16 oz., it works out to be 0.04 oz. per shade, which is close to the average full-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.).

Springtime in Paris

Jouer Springtime in Paris Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.59 oz.) contains 12 eyeshadows with several neutrals along with a few pops of color. Jouer’s eyeshadow formula is described as “highly pigmented,” “crease resistant,” and “long-wear[ing].” Some of the eyeshadows were richly pigmented, blendable, and lasted for around eight hours, while some shades had more of a medium color payoff or were powdery to work with and lasted six to seven hours. I noticed that the “mattes” in the palette often had a faint sheen, though one was noticeably shimmery on. For me, the quality was inconsistent across the palette, so any looks created ultimately faded unevenly or had issues where one shade applied beautifully but the next was uneven.

Basic Moment

Zoeva Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes 10 eyeshadows in a neutral color scheme that leaned light to mid-tone in depth and had more neutral-to-warm undertones. The texture of the eyeshadows ran dusty to powdery, which seemed to make them shorter wearing (averaging seven to seven and a half hours) and more prone to sheering out on the lid. If you normally use primer, it would certainly go a long way to minimizing the impact of the texture and give you better coverage and longer wear.

Beauty and the Beast Eye Palette

LORAC Beauty and the Beast PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes 16 eyeshadows that are supposed to be all new and using the brand’s PRO formula. The eyeshadows felt smooth, finely-milled, and had some powderiness (as a result of being so soft) and felt comparable to past Pro palettes, though I have found that the original Pro palettes seem to have more substance and adhere better (without primer) than newer palettes.

Some shades were pigmented, while others were sheer, and some applied fine without primer and others sheered out so easily that it was impossible to maintain opaque coverage on the lid. The wear was six to eight hours with a lot of shades falling short. The palette itself is massive, as it was designed to resemble a book, which keeps with the theme but still made it bulky and not at all travel-friendly.

Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 3

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 3 Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes nine warm-toned, neutral eyeshadows with all but one being highly shimmery/metallic in finish. As the majority of shades were packed with shimmer, most of them appeared lighter in practice than they looked in their respective pans.

Of the three volumes released thus far, the formula in Vol. 3 is incredibly dense and contains rather chunky sparkle. It was harder to work with and would be better used with a slightly dampened brush, which helped to smooth and spread the eyeshadows, or else applied with fingertips, where the warmth of the fingertip seemed to help make the eyeshadows more maneuverable (which the brand recommended). Fingertips were good for spreading the product over the lid, but it seemed to waste a lot of product as it did not transfer as much product onto the lid as with a brush (it was stuck to the fingertip). With this type of denser formulation, I tend to use flat, synthetic brushes (like MAC 242), which I find does a better job of picking up and applying the formula than very soft brushes.

The formula was a lot less versatile, and the shade range was more limited here–the palette’s composition seemed lacking in contrast–and will be most suitable for someone who likes very shimmery, light neutrals and likes this type of dense formula.
