Lo-Key

ColourPop Lo-Key Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four eyeshadows (that can be removed) in a slim, cardboard palette. The eyeshadows can also be purchased individually for $5 each. This palette performed quite well, even the mattes, and the eyeshadows coordinated with each other but also would be good shades for a growing collection.

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” For me, the new eyeshadow formula has been hit or miss with the more shimmery shades tending to perform better than the mattes, as their major downside was the lack of pigmentation, but they were buildable, so that made them workable. I felt like, on average, ColourPop’s powder formula wore shorter than most formulas on me with more noticeable fading. Primer definitely helped but still seemed to be shorter than other brands (over the same primer).

Sesso

Urban Decay Sesso Naked Flushed Cheek Palette ($34.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a bronzer, highlighter, and blush poured into a single pan (so each shade does touch!) with the bronzer taking up the most space and the highlighter taking up the least. Each shade is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” and “blend beautifully.” The bronzer and highlighter were lovely to work with–pigmented, long wearing, and blendable–but the blush was under-pigmented and harder to blend out.

Matte

Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes ten warm-toned, matte eyeshadows housed in a slim, cardboard palette. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and “easy to blend.” Overall, the eyeshadow formula was pigmented, silky, blendable, and long-wearing. It was an easy palette to apply, use, and wear, and the shades coordinated with each other well. It is going to work best for someone who likes richer, warmer shades along with matte finishes; it would also work as a complementary palette to a more shimmer-heavy palette to add more versatile transition and crease shades. There were two shades that could have applied better and been less powdery, though they were workable and if you normally use primer, the shortcomings were even less apparent.

Glamourize Me

MAC Glamourize Me Cream Colour Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) features six Cream Colour Shadows. The formula is supposed to have “medium, buildable colour” that is long-wearing, water-resistant, and non-drying. They felt a lot like the Cream Colour Base formula to me: soft, very emollient, and almost “greasy” in a way. They go on thin and have a slight tackiness, and they are hard to build-up or use more than one or two shades at a time, as they look uneven and patchy with more than that. The wear ranged from a few hours to six hours, but a couple of shades creased soon after applying but did not worsen for a few hours later (think of it as “initial creasing” because they don’t really dry down). I think the formula is most suited used all over the lid as a wash or as a lightly tacky, wet base for powder eyeshadows.
