Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills (262) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills (262) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new palette that was released with the spring collection. It wasn’t originally available when I purchased pieces to review from the launch, but I saw it a couple of weeks ago when they released Les Sautoirs de Coco. It’s a fairly brighter, more colorful set of hues for Chanel, and if you tend to like your colors really bold and rich, I would look elsewhere. I have had better luck with the newer Chanel quads, but this was a miss for me, and it seemed to wear and crease faster than usual, too, which was unexpected.

ColourPop KaePop Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop KaePop Super Shock Shadow Set ($20.00 for 4 x 0.07 oz.) includes four full-sized cream eyeshadows. ColourPop split up the set again, so if you only like one or two shades, you can pick them up individually (there’s no price discount for buying all four, but it’ll come in a square, cardboard box when purchased as a set). The wear across all four shades was great–over ten hours strong–and I only had some application issues with Beverly, which was less pigmented and prone to becoming patchy if I wasn’t careful (it is easier to work with layered over one of the other shades as a result).

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette (Zac Posen)

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a pink and plum-hued palette with a subdued gray in the mix. There are six shades, and two appear to be totally new-to-me, while three are repromotes from past releases (two are from larger permanent palettes) and one is permanent as a single (Phloof!). It’s decent, and I was able to use all six shades on their own with some success, but some of the shades are drier to work with.

MAC x Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a split-pan product with one shade being more of your traditional bronzer and the other being a pink-coral. Neither shade performed well, but the more blush-like shade had a really firm, hard press that required jabbing at the powder’s surface to get decent color out of it. This is at least the third time in recent memory that MAC has released a mid-tone brown/pink-coral blush duo, and I wonder why they haven’t been able to jump out of the box–it’s becoming like NARS Laguna/Orgasm over here.

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades (all of the shades are also available individually in the permanent range). Two things worth noting: there are several repeats in this palette if you already own several of their past releases, and the amount of product in this is less than the last two volumes and $2 more. Oh, and there are, again, no matte shades. It’s such a shame that they’ve continued to repeat shades when they have 200+ shades in their range to choose from (see this sheet for repeats). If you haven’t picked up a lot of the brand’s palettes or singles previously, it IS a good palette overall — pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use.

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a middling group of cooler silvers/grays–a smoky eye with a hint of blue–but disappoints across the board. If you tend to like your eyeshadows sheerer, it might still fill those requirements, but the lack of blendability in the darkest shade makes it a lot less foolproof to use, even accounting for preference towards sheerer coverage.
