Sleek MakeUP Acid Eyeshadow Palette

Sleek MakeUP Acid Eyeshadow Palette ($11.99 for 0.36 oz.) consists of twelve eyeshadows with a neon theme. This palette has been restricted for purchase through Sleek MakeUP directly due to the neon pigments used in some of the eyeshadows, as they are not FDA approved for use on the immediate eye area. Sleek MakeUP is a UK-based brand, and the palette and its shades are considered eye-safe in the EU and Canada. At present, I didn’t see any information indicating any of this or that it might not be deliverable to the U.S.; I was able to get all the way to payment info and didn’t see anything rejecting me, but it might happen on the final step.

Divergent Collector’s Kit (Quick)

Divergent Collector’s Kit ($59.50) includes fifteen eyeshadows, two blushes, one bronzer, one highlighter, four lipglosses, and a double-ended eye/cheek brush. I’ve been waiting to hear back from Sephora regarding the Lipglosses to get names (mine weren’t labeled–thank you readers Denise & Thu for your help!), but now the palette is listed as out of stock! I’m not entirely sure it’s going to be back in stock, and as it is listed as only available online, you can’t track it down in stores. Reader Erica, who works at Sephora in Pittsburgh, said stores will have them. (Could this launch be any more confusing–VIB rouge, then VIB, no everyone! online! no, maybe stores, too?!) I’m going to share my overall thoughts on the kit along with full photos and swatches, but I’m not going to consider going as in-depth as I typically would unless it becomes available again.

Laura Mercier Spring 2014 Artist Eyeshadow Palette

Laura Mercier Spring 2014 Artist Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.41 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows (0.03 oz. each), miniature-sized Caviar Stick in Cocoa, (0.03 oz.) and miniature-sized Full Blown Volume Mascara in Black (0.20 oz.). It’s a nice palette overall, and if you’re a fan of more neutral, muted colors with matte and satin finishes, you’ll probably get a lot of use out of this one. The downside is that if you don’t love or use the included minis, then this palette is significantly less value-packed than the last two editions of it. The only overlap with holiday’s palette is with Guava and African Violet. Generally, the eyeshadows had good color payoff, soft, smooth textures, and wore eight and a half hours before fading or creasing.

Illamasqua Fatale Eyeshadow Palette

Illamasqua Fatale Eyeshadow Palette ($46.50 for 0.20 oz.) includes four shades of warmer, shimmery colors that include copper, berry, purple, and taupe. The color scheme really works well together, and there are various combinations one can create with just the four shades included. There’s a good mix of shades that can contrast against each other. For those who prefer more satin or matte finishes, this palette may feel like frost-overload. It’s a good palette, but two shades could have been more pigmented.

Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette

Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette ($49.00 for 0.40 oz.) consists of ten shades in the theme of all that is bold and colorful–you know, electric. It includes two previously-seen shades, Revolt and Chaos, while the other eight are new to the palette. Each shade is 0.04 oz., which is a little shy of full-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.), and it also includes a dual-ended brush.

Urban Decay Native Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Native Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a new trio that features a bronzer, highlighter, and blush. It is a follow up to Naked Flushed. This one seems to [attempt to] match the blush to the colors of Native Lipstick and Native Lip Pencil, which are both light-medium pinks. I don’t think it’s a great match for either the lipstick or pencil, as it is distinctly cool-toned, whereas the lipstick is warm-toned and the pencil more neutral-to-warm-toned. To me, the color is a better match for Obsessed Lipstick. I didn’t like the original Naked Flushed palette, as I felt like the texture was firm and drier, but I didn’t love this one either, as it was powdery–makes me feel a bit like Goldilocks. Though you’ll see excess powder as you grab product onto your applicator, it doesn’t seem to look powdery on the skin, so that’s definitely a plus. It’s not ideal to have so much excess sitting on the surface of the pan when there are three shades that sit next to each other. The highlighter emphasizes pores/skin texture, which is a drawback. If used lightly, that effect can be lessened, but some care is required–it’s not foolproof.
