Blow Me Away

ColourPop Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a mix of warm peaches, corals, and oranges. Two of the four shades (Centerfold, Slim Fit) are not actually eyeshadows, they are “Pressed Pigments,” which are listed as “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” (in the same way that we have seen for some Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows, Urban Decay’s Electric Palette, and so forth). I did not make that connection when I initially used and tested the palette, which is why you’ll find some shades are applied to my eye.

Cle de Peau 103 Harmony Eye Color Duo

Cle de Peau 103 Harmony Eye Color Duo (Refill)

103 Harmony

Cle de Peau 103 Harmony Eye Color Duo ($55.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a darker green and a lighter, warmer green. I think the selection of shades is more versatile in this duo than some of the others, as there is a good level of contrast between the two shades as well as a difference in shimmer.

The formula is supposed to have a “silky” feel, be moisturizing on the lids (though it is a powder formula), long-wearing, and have true-to-pan color. I like the effect of Cle de Peau’s eyeshadows on the lid; I think that “moisturizing” aspect of them makes them sit well on the lid as time passes, where they meld well to bare skin. I find that they can be semi-opaque to opaque, more buildable and very easy to wear as a wash of color, if desired. The eyeshadows are rose-scented, though I only just noticed the scent with the compact open but not applied.

As a FYI, Cle de Peau sells the duos as a pan-only, which is not magnetized but you could stick a magnet to it so it would adhere to most freestyle palettes, or purchase their case for $25.

Super Hard Core

ColourPop Super Hard Core Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, buttery yellow with warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff that applied nicely to bare skin–even, smooth, and never patchy. The texture was smooth, blendable, and just emollient enough to feel like a cream going on but it dried down to a powder-like finish that lasted all day (over ten hours).

Cle de Peau 102 Calm Eye Color Duo

102 Calm

Cle de Peau 102 Calm Eye Color Duo ($55.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a medium, warm-toned pink and a light, pinky-peach. The two created a rather soft look, so I’m not sure if it will create a perfect one-and-done look for everyone, but if you like your pinks and are normally a fan of the softness of the Cle de Peau formula, you may enjoy it.

The formula is supposed to have a “silky” feel, be moisturizing on the lids (though it is a powder formula), long-wearing, and have true-to-pan color. I like the effect of Cle de Peau’s eyeshadows on the lid; I think that “moisturizing” aspect of them makes them sit well on the lid as time passes, where they meld well to bare skin.

Natural Love

Too Faced Natural Love Ultimate Neutral Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.90 oz.) includes 30 eyeshadows in varying shades of pinks, golds, and various neutral tones with some mattes and many shimmers. It’s housed in a large, cardboard palette and includes several shades from past neutral palettes they’ve released along with “brand new” shades.

It’s not the worst Too Faced palette I’ve encountered, but it’s not their best work–there are highlights and total misses within the palette, which is unsurprising as the brand’s track record with these larger palettes has been disappointing over the last couple of years. I think if you use primer, aren’t terribly concerned with having rich coverage in one layer, and like your neutrals, it’s not the worst way to spend your money. Too Faced’s formula–even when better–has always been the type (thin, a little powdery) that works significantly better over primer for coverage, blendability, and longevity.
