Chrissy Teigen

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes two highlighters, a blush, and a bronzer housed in a large, square-shaped palette. One of the four products is a repeat from the permanent line (Rose Gold), while the other three are exclusive to the palette. It’s well worth some consideration if you’re a fan of warmer cheek products in hues of peach, pink, and coral and like your shimmer. The four shades coordinated well with each other and layered nicely, blended without issue, and lasted well on the skin.

The palette contains $48.86 worth of Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, $12.92 worth of Sunlit Bronzer, and $13.76 worth of Luminous Blush, which is a total value of $75.54.

Expose

Dior Expose High Fidelity Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, permanent eyeshadow palette that features earth-toned neutrals. I spotted in on Selfridges last week and purchased mine there, but it’s now available through Dior’s website and some of the accompanying new palettes are at Sephora (but not all). It features a new formula that’s supposed to have “highly pigmented” color with “spectacular staying power.” The formula was better than some of the past iterations from Dior, though it was still more semi-opaque to opaque in coverage but had seven to eight-hour wear. The big difference that I noticed was in the texture; it was firmer (but not stiff) in the pan and had less dustiness than some of the past formulations.

Oh My Banana

MAC Oh My Banana Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brighter mix of warm-toned shades from pale gold to coral to plum. This palette has a few repromotes, including two permanent, single shades (Retrospeck and Soft Brown), so you may find your stash already have these, if you’re a long-time MAC fan. Of the three palettes in the collection, I felt like this was the easiest to use cohesively, and I liked the contrast added by the coral and plum shades. Overall, the palette was good–easy to work with, pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing–and one of MAC’s better pre-made palettes!

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

This collection launches on May 18th.

Fruit a La La

MAC Fruit a La La Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bold, bright mix of orange and pink with three neutral shades thrown into the mix. Overall, I think eyeshadows applied well to bare skin and wore for most of the day, and as I often find true of MAC’s eyeshadow (especially more matte shades), they go on better in practice than just swatched. Some of the shades in the palette are repromotes from various palettes released over the years.

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

Love in the Glades

MAC Love in the Glades Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is like a smoky take on tropical greens and blues. The palette had a mix of cooler undertones and neutral undertones, which made it one of the cooler-toned palettes that I’ve come across. The lightest shade (Grey Stroke) was the biggest miss in the palette, but the other six applied fairly well, had good pigmentation, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer).

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

Gold Griot

Urban Decay Gold Griot Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows (0.04 oz. each) in more of a neutral palette–the twist was that most of the shades are warmer in undertone, but then there was a more neutral, medium gray (BK) and a slightly cool-toned black (Pseudonym) thrown into the mix. (For me, the gray was hard to incorporate with the rest!) The majority of the palette was fairly good, though the gray (BK) and light brown (Levitation) shades could have been more pigmented.

Editor’s Note: While Basquiat’s state approached Urban Decay to create the collection, the collection is not without concerns from those who have been drawn in and inspired by Basquiat’s work. Some of the artist’s supporters have expressed concern over the commercialization of the artist’s work (generally) and the lack of a model of color in the collection’s campaign, both said to be inconsistent with some of the themes shown throughout Basquiat’s body of work. A third issue raised is with respect to Urban Decay’s usage of drug-related names (like Junkie, Druggie, Bump, etc.) when Basquiat died of a heroin overdose at 27 years old and how those two can be reconciled. Others who enjoy Basquiat’s work are excited for the collaboration and the acknowledgment of the artist’s influence, along with the possibility of making his work more widely known. As always, we invite thoughtful and critical discussion and debate but ask everyone to be respectful.
