Medium-Deep

CoverFX Medium-Deep The Perfect Light Highlighting Palette ($42.00 for 0.38 oz.) includes two powder highlighters and two cream highlighters housed in a cardboard palette. The cream formula is supposed to have a “dewy, radiant glow,” while the powder highlighters have a “silky, luminous finish.” The tones are definitely warm and run slightly redder overall, as three of the four shades have more of a brown/red mix of undertones than yellow. The cream highlighters could have worn longer, but if you like a dewy, subtle sheen, the formula might be up your alley. Both of the powder highlighters can be purchased individually, but should you prefer them in a palette, the colors are consistent but the quality is better in the individual versions for me.

Solar Exposure

Tom Ford Solar Exposure Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes four eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one blush. If you’re normally a fan of Tom Ford’s eyeshadow quads (the regular kind), then I’d expect you would likely find the eyeshadows similar in quality. The deepest shade was sheerer but buildable, but it would be best over a primer. The cheek products are nice enough but are not quite as dense or as silky as the original powder blush formula but aren’t quite as thin as the current blush formula

Make Believe In Yourself

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette ($40.00 for 0.485 oz.) includes ten eyeshadows and one highlighter. housed in a circular compact with a large mirror inside. The formula is supposed to have a “silky-soft” texture and a “long-lasting finish without any fallout or chalkiness.” Across the board, the formula featured a denser powder texture, where there was no excess product kicked up in the pan and often using a patting/pushing motion with brushes was better than gently sweeping for picking up product onto a brush. There were a few that I think would work best with flat, synthetic brushes rather than anything fluffy (like Wings and Marvel).

The majority of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, frosted and metallic in finish, and blendable on the eye, though a couple ran sheerer or seemed chunkier in texture, so they required a little more finessing. The lone matte eyeshadow seemed out of place, both with respect to the tone of it (pinker) as well as the fact that it’s not going to work across all skin tones. Since the whole palette is so shimmery, I think that the one matte eyeshadow should have just been one more shimmer, as I expect anyone who would have wanted a matte eyeshadow to need to reach for more mattes than just the one presently included. The highlighter was intense but might emphasize one’s natural skin texture at medium or great coverage levels. The palette’s powders had a subtle, vanilla scent.

NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features twelve eyeshadows in varying shades of warmer neutral tones. The palette will launch March 22nd at NARS and March 28th at other retailers. Some shades were nice, some shades were less impressive, but the majority of them would benefit greatly from an eyeshadow primer–both for longer wear as well as greater color payoff.

Tom Ford Soleil Afterglow Soleil Contouring Compact ($108.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer housed in a white compact, which contains a ton of product (as it should, I suppose, at this price point!). Per the brand, all three are supposed to provide “sheer to medium coverage.” The only one that was true to the idea of “sheer to medium” was the bronzer, whereas the highlighter and blush were rather pigmented.
