Pool Party

Anastasia Pool Party Blush Trio ($30.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes three coordinated blushes in medium-sized compact. The blush formula is supposed to be “finely-milled” and “full-pigmented” for “buildable intensity with a seamless finish.” Based on my interpretation, it seemed to say that it was buildable up to full coverage. This trio was a mixed bag of decent to good with variability in pigmentation (two were buildable, one was pretty pigmented), one was harder to blend out, and one that applied beautifully.

There are five trios available. They are presently available through Anastasia directly and will be available online at other retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd.

Touch Me Baby

MAC Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two powder eyeshadows with one of them–Soba–being part of MAC’s permanent range. The two shades worked well paired together, but it was the type of duo that still made me want to reach for other shades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soba incorporated with Keep On Twinkling as the latter had a much more shimmery texture and sometimes mattes and shimmers do not play well together for blending/layering next to each other.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Sunset

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) includes 15 eyeshadows in various warm-toned hues–a lot of red/orange-toned coppers, oranges, and browns–with a mix of matte, shimmer, and sparkle finishes. I think it is actually one of the best Natasha Denona palettes that has been released with respect to cohesiveness and quality. I also feel like 15 is a solid number of shades to create a curated, cohesive, and useful palette from, and for the brand, while still pricey, still a more palatable price compared to the larger 28-pan palettes. The more sparkly shades included in this palette were a serious improvement from the Star palette as well, though I would still recommend using them damp for maximum performance. The majority of the eyeshadows also wore better without primer on me this time around than they have in the past.

It’s a real shame that this palette is limited edition–I think the brand should consider adding it to the permanent line-up or else doing a major re-release. I know that some retailers that carried this palette are working on a limited restock, but I have not heard anything solid or a confirmed date yet. Alternatively, an excellent palette with a similar vibe (very warm-toned) is Viseart Warm Mattes, which I would then supplement with shimmers within one’s stash or some of these single eyeshadows or BH Foil Eyes, which has a lot of frost/metallic shades.

Edit: As of 2:54PM PST, Sephora has it back in stock.

Pink Passion

Anastasia Pink Passion Blush Trio ($30.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes three coordinated blushes in medium-sized compact. Pink Passion had buildable coverage from medium to semi-opaque that lasted between eight and nine hours on me with two shades being blendable and one that was prone to sheering out on the skin.

The blush formula is supposed to be “finely-milled” and “full-pigmented” for “buildable intensity with a seamless finish.” It seemed to say that it was buildable up to full coverage. The coverage varied from shade to shade but was typically medium to semi-opaque and buildable. The consistency was thinner, though typically not dusty or powdery, but I would recommend applying over powdered skin or allowing any liquid/cream bases to dry down considerably as I found that applying this formula over a dewier base made it hard to blend as the color stuck and did not spread well. It was surprisingly forgiving over bare skin (I’m normal-to-dry), even though it was a thin formula. There are five trios available. They are presently available through Anastasia directly and will be available online at other retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd.

Undress

Dior Undress High Fidelity Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, permanent eyeshadow palette with muted, mid-tone neutrals. One shade was darker, but the other four shades were quite light overall. It has a new formula that’s supposed to have “highly pigmented” color with “spectacular staying power.” While several of the other palettes were decent to good in quality, this one missed the mark as more shades were slightly dusty to powdery with sheerer coverage that did not wear as long.

White Russian on the Rocks

Buxom White Russian on the Rocks Eyeshadow Bar Palette ($40.00 for 0.30 oz.) includes six eyeshadows ranging from pale gold to deep plum. I wasn’t a fan of this palette; it took twice as long to apply due to how long I spent packing and patting colors on to get enough product to stay in place. Many of the eyesahdows were sheerer, dusty/powdery, and prone to fading compared to what I’ve experienced with this formula in the past.
