Skinny Dip

Jouer Skinny Dip Ultra Foil Shimmer Shadows Palette ($40.00 for 0.26 oz.) includes six, “intense, shimmering metallic” eyeshadows that can be used together or as a “glittering accent.” They’re supposed to be long-wearing, highly pigmented, and crease-resistant; and the founder also stated that the formula could be “used as a liner with its wet-to-dry finish,” which I read as that it could also be used damp. The formula was lovely to work with as long as you enjoy an intense shine with moderate to high amounts of sparkle. All six eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, were blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing. They worked well with a dampened brush as well, but it did not seem like a must in order to enjoy the palette by any means.

Berry Adore

Anastasia Blush Trio ($30.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes three coordinated blushes in medium-sized compact. The blush formula is supposed to be “finely-milled” and “full-pigmented” for “buildable intensity with a seamless finish.” Based on my interpretation, it seemed to say that it was buildable up to full coverage. The first two shades were very pigmented, while the third was more buildable (truer to the coverage claim). The first shade was harder to blend and diffuse but the remaining two were easy to use.

There are five trios available. They are presently available through Anastasia directly and will be available online at other retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd.

Yoni Attraction

MAC Yoni Attraction Lip & Cheek Colour Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes five Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colours and one lipstick (Show Orchid). All six shades have been released before, and all of them are available as individual products in the permanent range. The Casual Colour formula is supposed to be “lightweight” with a “creamy and comfortable texture” that is hydrating on cheeks and lips. I like the Casual Colour formula as a cream blush–blendable, pigmented, long-wearing–but not so much as a lip color as they feel slightly clingy and are on the drying side over time.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

The blush formula is supposed to be “finely-milled” and “full-pigmented” for “buildable intensity with a seamless finish.” Based on my interpretation, it seemed to say that it was buildable up to full coverage. This trio was a mixed bag of decent to good with variability in pigmentation (two were buildable, one was pretty pigmented), one was harder to blend out, and one that applied beautifully.

There are five trios available. They are presently available through Anastasia directly and will be available online at other retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd.

Touch Me Baby

MAC Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two powder eyeshadows with one of them–Soba–being part of MAC’s permanent range. The two shades worked well paired together, but it was the type of duo that still made me want to reach for other shades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soba incorporated with Keep On Twinkling as the latter had a much more shimmery texture and sometimes mattes and shimmers do not play well together for blending/layering next to each other.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Sunset

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) includes 15 eyeshadows in various warm-toned hues–a lot of red/orange-toned coppers, oranges, and browns–with a mix of matte, shimmer, and sparkle finishes. I think it is actually one of the best Natasha Denona palettes that has been released with respect to cohesiveness and quality. I also feel like 15 is a solid number of shades to create a curated, cohesive, and useful palette from, and for the brand, while still pricey, still a more palatable price compared to the larger 28-pan palettes. The more sparkly shades included in this palette were a serious improvement from the Star palette as well, though I would still recommend using them damp for maximum performance. The majority of the eyeshadows also wore better without primer on me this time around than they have in the past.

It’s a real shame that this palette is limited edition–I think the brand should consider adding it to the permanent line-up or else doing a major re-release. I know that some retailers that carried this palette are working on a limited restock, but I have not heard anything solid or a confirmed date yet. Alternatively, an excellent palette with a similar vibe (very warm-toned) is Viseart Warm Mattes, which I would then supplement with shimmers within one’s stash or some of these single eyeshadows or BH Foil Eyes, which has a lot of frost/metallic shades.

Edit: As of 2:54PM PST, Sephora has it back in stock.
