Cle de Peau Cosmic Aura (308) Eyeshadow Quad

Clé de Peau Cosmic Aura (308) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of four shades that run cooler-toned with a purple bent. I knew I had to see just how well (or poorly) the brand could do purples, as this is a color range that many brands under-deliver on. Unfortunately, this quad did fall short: two of the purple-hued shades were slightly powdery in texture as well as weaker in pigment. This is a more unique set of shades, relative to Stellar Gaze (307) that I reviewed earlier, though the second shade is one that a few brands do.

Cle de Peau Stellar Gaze (307) Eyeshadow Quad

Clé de Peau Stellar Gaze (307) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of four, warm-toned autumnal shades that range from gold to plum. The texture of the eyeshadows is soft, velvety, lightly creamy and silky, while being incredibly blendable. They feel smooth to the touch, and the finishes are particularly flattering on the eyelid–think a luminous, glowy highlighter that adds life but doesn’t accentuate pores–this is in the same vein, just for the eyes. All four shades lasted for eight and a half hours, and the first three shades had really nice color payoff, but the last–the plum–shade was a little less pigmented. Overall, it’s a nice quad, though the shades are more dupable than not, so it may not be particularly interesting to some unless it’s a go-to combination.

Urban Decay Black Magic 24/7 Eyeliner Set

Urban Decay Black Magic 24/7 Glide-On Eye Double-Ended Pencil Set ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) includes four, double-ended eyeliners. Each side is 0.01 oz., so it’s really the equivalent of 2 full-sized eyeliners, though you’re getting eight shades for the price of two. These are all previously released shades with two being brought back in this set (Black Market and Tornado) and the others are permanent. Urban Decay’s formula is long-wearing on me (eight to ten hours), and it is a waxy, glide-on formula that doesn’t tug at the lash line, but some shades require two to three passes for full color coverage.

Urban Decay Ten 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set

Urban Decay Ten 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($52.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes ten (obviously!) eyeliners–one full-sized Perversion and then nine travel-sized (0.03 oz. vs. 0.04 oz., so it’s 25% smaller than full-sized) shades. Though nine of the shades are new and exclusive to this limited edition set, a few of them feel like, “Haven’t I seen you before?” There is definitely some overlap with past shades released in the 24/7 line-up. Though I am a fan of the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil formula, and I love how wide the shade range is, there are too many under-performers in this set. I’m disappointed, and I wish Urban Decay would increase the pigmentation behind their more sparkly shades, as they consistently apply much sheerer and more unevenly than their less shimmery/sparkly shades.

Urban Decay Vice3 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice3 Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.60 oz.) contains twenty new, limited edition, and exclusive shades. Overall, the palette had good color payoff with the majority of the shades, and most wore for around seven to eight hours before fading/creasing on me. I had some issues with the texture of shades within this palette, but it definitely wasn’t on the same level as Shadow Box. I felt like the eyeshadows–across the board–were less plush, not as buttery or as dense as many other Urban Decay eyeshadows, though. None of the textures were stiff (where you’d have trouble getting color payoff), but they were thinner, sometimes a little drier, and the eyeshadows felt more pressed (firmer) into the pan. The matte finishes were soft and finely-milled, but a few of them were also quite powdery so you’ll want to be careful applying (or apply before your base).
