Sephora Fairytale & My Boyfriend’s Jeans Contour Eye Pencil

Sephora Fairytale Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “golden green.” It’s a blue-teal with green and gold micro-shimmer. This shade was only semi-opaque when applied, and even layering by doing multiple passes didn’t quite intensify it to really true-to-pencil color. I wouldn’t recommend wearing it on the water line if you have sensitive eyes due to the amount of shimmer in it (and I don’t think it’s touted as water line safe). It lasted well for nine hours on me (not the 12 hours claimed), and by the twelfth hour, it was thinner than it was when I had initially applied but I didn’t see smudging or a lot in the corners of my eyes. Make Up For Ever #52L doesn’t have the golden shimmer. Urban Decay Junkie seems a bit darker. MAC Undercurrent is also darker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Smokeluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Smokeluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “frosty pink white, deep bronze, carbon black, deep grey and platinum.” #2 was the sparkliest shade, so it was the only one that seemed like it might be prone to fall out. I’ve been wearing this palette together for just over four hours, and there’s very little sparkle underneath my eye thus far, so hopefully there’s not too much more between now and the eight-hour mark. Based on my experience with the wear of these eyeshadows to this point, I expect the others to wear without creasing and might show some signs of fading after nine hours or so. The texture of this palette was slightly less silky compared to the others.

MAC Pinkluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Pinkluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “frost white pink, bright frosty pink, deep violet, blackened purple with purple pearl and blackened plum.”  The first two shades seem too similar to have included both in this particular palette–if they had been really cool and really warm-toned, rather than closer to the middle, it would have worked better.  #1, 2, and 4 were sparkly enough to have some fall out issues.  I’ve only been wearing this palette for three hours now, but there is some minor fall out currently (and based on the wear of the other four palettes, I would expect moderate fall out after eight hours but no creasing).  #4 was also hard to apply with even, opaque coverage, even though I used it damp.

MAC Pastelluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Pastelluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “bright champagne with pearl, peach pink with pearl, light pink, bright lavender and dusty grey.”  This was the hardest palette to use of the six MAC launched, because four of the five shades had incredibly crumbly, almost gritty, textures that were just so filled with sparkle that the sparkle got everywhere during application, after, and really stuck to the skin.  I initially applied these shades this morning, and after nine hours of wear, most of what was applied on the lid seems to be underneath my eye and on my cheeks.  Even applying all of the shades with a damp brush didn’t give great results on the lid from the get-go.  The only shade that wasn’t a pain to use was #5.  The eye that I wore this palette on was watering all day (and the other one only started watering towards the end).

MAC Greenluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Greenluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “light peach, bright champagne with pearl, dark olive, blackened green with gold pearl and deep forest green with pearl.” Greenluxe is not really as green as you’d expect, so if you were wary, you might still like this but if you are a fiend for green, you’ll be missing those.  #2 and #4 were the two that were very fall-out prone.  I wore this palette on one eye, and after nine hours of wear, there is no creasing, but there is a noticeable amount of fall out–the sparkles in this are finer, so they’re not as large or as visible as glitter would be. I did experience fading with #4 and #5 that was noticeable after seven and a half hours of wear.

MAC Brownluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Brownluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as shades of “egg shell, frosty orange gold, light yellow chocolate, deep bronze, blackened plum with pearl.” Brownluxe is one of the better-performing palettes from the launch of six. The textures of #1 and #2 are slightly dry, so you may need to jab at the pans a bit to dislodge color. There is some fall out from #3 and #4 (this was the worst offender of the two), but overall, this had minimal fall out after 12 hours of wear (I don’t normally test this long, but I only had time to test one palette per eye yesterday, so I ended up wearing it until bed time!). I didn’t experience any creasing, but there was some noticeable fading after nine hours of wear.
