Illamasqua Reflection Eyeshadow Palette

Illamasqua Reflection Eyeshadow Palette ($46.50 for 0.20 oz.) is new for fall, and it is supposed to contain four “highly pigmented” eyeshadows with a “water-resistant” and “long-lasting” formula that is “silky” and “effortless” when applying and blending (per Illamasqua’s website). This is really a product that I think translates better in real life, under normal use, than it does in photos. It’s just not something that looks phenomenal in a close-up; no matter how lovely it seemed in person, the camera made the shades look a little iffy. If you like shimmering, sparkling cream eyeshadows, and you’re not going to be taking macro photos of your eye, I suspect you’ll still enjoy it. If you want your makeup to be immaculate, you’ll want to pass.

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case ($44.00 for 0.43 oz.) includes five eyeshadows, one lip color, one eyeliner, two blushes, and one highlighter. Each eyeshadow is 0.03 oz., each blush is 0.05 oz., the highlighter is 0.05 oz., Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color is 0.10 oz., and the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is 0.03 oz. There is $54 worth of eyeshadows, $9 worth of blush (Urban Decay doesn’t currently sell powder blushes, so I took the price-per-ounce for the Naked Flush palette, which is the most comparable product I could think of), $19 worth of lip color, and $14 worth of eyeliner. The kit is at least $96 in value (the blush/highlighter could make the value higher if they were actually sold separately).

Urban Decay Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette (Part 1)

Urban Decay Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 20 x 0.03 oz. / 0.60 oz.) includes twenty new and exclusive eyeshadows, which means the palette contains $216 worth of eyeshadow, plus a dual-ended brush that we’ll value at $16 (using the lowest-priced brush they have, which is the Blending Brush, and this is one-half of the dual-ended brush, too). The total value of the palette is $232–so it’s a great deal as long as you love at least three to four of the eyeshadows. Individually, Urban Decay Eyeshadows retail for $18 (but are 0.05 oz. in size). The palette is housed in a large plastic palette where the lid releases with a push of a button. It has a mirror that spans the width and height of the lid inside. This is part one of two posts featuring the palette–there are so many shades that I wanted to split the two into more bite-sized (still a rather large gulp each, though!) pieces as well as keep the loading time down.
