MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Creative Copper Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Creative Copper Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that launches in-stores on September 12th. It contains six eyeshadows with a warm-toned theme.  This palette is decent to good, though it’s not perfect and at the price point, you can find better-performing products.  If these are the types of colors you’d wear often and see yourself really reaching for this palette often, I think you’d probably still enjoy it. For one or two shades, though, it is less likely to be worth it.  These shades performed well enough to be worn alone without too much issues–most of them made it to eight hours of wear with minimal fading, though the Lustres had some fall out, which is par for the course with that finish.

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Teal Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes/Teal Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that launches in-stores on September 12th. It contains six eyeshadows. Like a lot of MAC’s limited edition palettes, it’s a mixed bag. Some shades performed decent to well, others were more disappointing. These perform best over a primer, and I wouldn’t recommend wearing them without one for two reasons: 1) they don’t last well  (six hours), and 2) Colourful Life is prone to staining without a primer.  Even though four of the six shades are decent, one is an abysmal failure and the other is only slightly less worse.

Wet ‘n’ Wild A Regular at the Factory Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild A Regular at the Factory Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a limited edition palette for summer, so you’ll have to hunt around your local drugstores for this one (I’ve yet to spot any of the Pop Art displays in my area, which means it hasn’t arrived yet or it has already sold out!). This was one of the “better” trios I tested, though it was still underwhelming, due to the incredible powderiness across the shades. These absolutely need to be worn over a primer, because they are prone to fading and creasing–they lasted a mere four hours before fading significantly without a primer–and even over primer, they didn’t last beyond eight hours.  They’re powdery, easily sheered out (but harder to build up), prone to fading, and really do not show why Color Icon eyeshadows were so coveted when they first debuted. (And Color Icon is a formula touted as highly pigmented and long-wearing.)

Sugarpill Cold Chemistry Eyeshadow Palette

Sugarpill Cold Chemistry Eyeshadow Palette ($34.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains four cool-toned eyeshadows. Cold Chemistry will launch later today at noon PST, and the eyeshadows are available as a palette, but you can also purchase each eyeshadow individually ($12.00 each). All of the eyeshadows will be added to the permanent range. I really liked the palette overall, and the color payoff was good to great across the board. My only note was that a couple of the shades have a slightly dry, powdery feel, though it was less noticeable when you’re applying it to the lid than trying to get a swatch on your hand or arm. When I wore the shades together, they lasted well without fading or creasing for eight hours; after nine hours of wear, I saw some slight fading along the edges (no primer).

Tom Ford In the Pink Ombre Eye Color Trio Palette

Tom Ford In the Pink Ombre Eye Color Trio Palette ($60.00) is described as “pink rose, pink champagne, ballet slipper pink.” It’s a limited edition palette that contains three eyeshadows; mine came in sample packaging (no official labels or boxes), so I’m not sure of the amount of product in each, but the pans don’t look small. Tom Ford’s fall collection has started popping up at local counters but not yet online, though I’m sure it will be soon as the official launch is September. I think She Wolf was a more versatile palette that could work across a variety of skin tones, but In the Pink is more confined. I think really fair or darker complexions could make this work; on my medium complexion, it just runs together.

Tom Ford She Wolf Ombre Eye Color Trio Palette

Tom Ford She Wolf Ombre Eye Color Trio Palette ($60.00) is described as “deep black/brown, light charcoal, and silver lead.” It’s a limited edition palette that contains three eyeshadows; mine came in sample packaging (no official labels or boxes), so I’m not sure of the amount of product in each, but the pans don’t look small. Tom Ford’s fall collection has started popping up at local counters but not yet online, though I’m sure it will be soon as the official launch is September. This is a nice, fairly neutral palette–except it does have a sparkly kick–that I could see some using near-daily and really enjoying. For others, it’s too basic, and I’m sure many of us have similar shades in our stashes.
