Wet ‘n’ Wild Fly Me to the Moon Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a cool-toned mix of white, black, and blue. It’s a shame that this trio ended up being poor performing all around, because I think the color combination is beautiful and could have worked so well together.
There are six shades featured in this post: Genuine Treasure (reflects antique gold), Half-Wild (mid-tone purple), Idyllic (mid-tone copper bronze), Nubile (light peachy nude), Pure Creation (mid-tone frosty blue), and Treasure Hunt (light pearled yellow). All products and shades from this collection are limited edition.
OCC Pure Cosmetic Pigments ($12.00 for 0.088 oz.) are a professional-use product sold by the brand. They’re pure, uncut pigments, so they are best used when mixed with other cosmetic bases; OCC suggests things like body lotions, cosmetic grade talc, mixing mediums, primers, or their clear Lip Tar. I’ve shown them swatched wet (with just water) and dry. These kinds of products can stain the skin as well.
Aqua Creams have a quick dry down, and once they have dried, they stay on all day long for me–no budging, smudging, creasing, or fading. They can be worn alone, as a base, or as eyeliner (and some shades can be worn on cheeks/lips, too; a few aren’t meant for eyes but for cheeks/lips entirely).
Le Metier de Beaute Midnight Sky Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is an incredibly deep, dark navy blue with soft frost finish. It almost seems like navy blue sheen over a blackened-blue base, because the level of darkness is so high, but it doesn’t read blackened blue at all. It looks a bit like MAC Blue Sheen used dry–but Midnight Sky is so much darker and opaque. Make Up For Ever #81 seems the closest but leans a touch purple.
Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit 4-Colour Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes shades of silver, teal, navy blue, and black. Three of the shades have shimmery finishes, while one shade has a matte finish and can be used also as an eyeliner. It’s a limited edition palette from Guerlain’s holiday collection.
