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.

Outta Luck

ColourPop Outta Luck Pressed Powder Shadow ($5.00 for 0.042 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peachy beige with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly on the skin. The consistency was soft, a little dusty but finely-milled. I noticed slight fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

LORAC California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes. The palette runs warmer, but it seemed more like a neutral palette with pops of rose and mauve accents. The formula felt looser and drier overall; sort of like LORAC’s “filler” formula, when they put together more affordable palettes but aren’t part of their Pro collection (which always has a silkier, more refined feel). I find that this formula can be better or worse depending on the shades and finishes. The downsides of the formula tend to be that they are prone to fading more quickly and sheering out, so a good primer is an absolute must-have to make this palette wear and perform well.

MAC Red-Hot Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. For the types of colors and finishes included in the palette, it was actually not bad. I’d definitely suggest using this with a primer to improve blendability and pigmentation across the palette, though.

Coloured Raine Birthday Suit Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peach with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was soft, blendable, and smooth without being too powdery or too firm in the pan. It had great color payoff that applied evenly to the skin and lasted for eight hours on me.
