Club Tropicana

BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana Foil Eyeshadow Palette ($12.50 for 1.16 oz.) is a collection of brighter pops of color in the brand’s more shimmery formula. I’ve reviewed the Original Foil Eyes and more recent Foil Eyes 2 palettes in the past, and I find that the original is the easiest to work with across the palette, but Club Tropicana was the worst/hardest to use as-is. I think if you’re someone who enjoys very shimmery, sparkly, or metallic shades and typically works with a dampened brush or an adhesive base, you’ll find this palette useful and easier to use. There were just several shades that required a dampened brush to help improve binding and adhesion (for evenness) to the lid, and for me, traditional eyeshadow primer doesn’t do much as the issue was more texture/formula than a matter of pigmentation or longevity.

One thing I noticed was that the two previous Foil Eyeshadow Palettes contained 1.58 oz./1.60 oz. of product, whereas this one only contained 1.16 oz. The ingredient list was the same between Club Tropicana and Foil Eyes 2 (but the Original has a slightly different list/order of ingredients), so I’m not sure what accounted for such a dramatic decrease in weight. Even at 1.16 oz., it works out to be 0.04 oz. per shade, which is close to the average full-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.).

Springtime in Paris

Jouer Springtime in Paris Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.59 oz.) contains 12 eyeshadows with several neutrals along with a few pops of color. Jouer’s eyeshadow formula is described as “highly pigmented,” “crease resistant,” and “long-wear[ing].” Some of the eyeshadows were richly pigmented, blendable, and lasted for around eight hours, while some shades had more of a medium color payoff or were powdery to work with and lasted six to seven hours. I noticed that the “mattes” in the palette often had a faint sheen, though one was noticeably shimmery on. For me, the quality was inconsistent across the palette, so any looks created ultimately faded unevenly or had issues where one shade applied beautifully but the next was uneven.

Milk Makeup Silent Disco & Mermaid Parade Eye Pigments

Milk Makeup Silent Disco Eye Pigment

Milk Makeup Silent Disco Eye Pigment

Silent Disco

Milk Makeup Silent Disco Eye Pigment ($24.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a blackened plum with warm, brown undertones and flecks of plum and pink sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but it was hard to control the coverage and evenness on the lid except if I used a fingertip to sheer it out (but then it looked blotchy as this type of color often does at sheerer coverage levels). The larger sparkles seemed to impede the application and made the product lift from the area whenever I tried to even it out. It did not build up well, as it made the dried down texture uneven and chunky-looking. It lasted decently for nine hours but some larger pieces of product started to flake off.

The formula is supposed to be a “highly pigmented cream eyeshadow” that is “long-wearing” with a “soft, silky texture” that will dry “quickly without creasing” but is still “easily blendable.” I bought five shades (there are 11 in the range) and had good luck with three of them and found two to be more troublesome to use. It seemed like the more pearly shades were easier to use than the ones with larger sparkles. I wasn’t sure if the squeeze tube format was going to work, but it was fairly easy to dispense product without getting too much at once but product can get dried out and clog the opening.

The texture was smooth, creamy, and emollient enough to spread easily across the lid. They dried down quickly but I did not feel too rushed (I would still work one eye at a time, though). I noticed that they felt a bit heavier on the lids and had a tendency to cling and emphasize any texture on my lids (most noticeable on the inner portion of my lids). They lasted between nine and eleven hours on me with one of the more glittery shades crumbling over time. I applied mine using a flat, synthetic brush (like MAC 242) as well as fingertips, though I personally prefer brushes so that is what I reached for most of the time.

Basic Moment

Zoeva Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes 10 eyeshadows in a neutral color scheme that leaned light to mid-tone in depth and had more neutral-to-warm undertones. The texture of the eyeshadows ran dusty to powdery, which seemed to make them shorter wearing (averaging seven to seven and a half hours) and more prone to sheering out on the lid. If you normally use primer, it would certainly go a long way to minimizing the impact of the texture and give you better coverage and longer wear.

Milk Makeup Hotel Lobby Eye Pigment

Hotel Lobby

Milk Makeup Hotel Lobby Eye Pigment ($24.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a light, champagne gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was creamy enough to spread easily across the lid but did not feel overly wet or slippery, so it applied with rich, opaque coverage. I felt like this shade was very, very pigmented and a little went a long way (out of all five that I tried). I had no trouble applying this on the lid with a brush, but it worked well as an all over lid color applied with fingertips. On me, the color was still going strong after twelve hours of wear.

Beauty and the Beast Eye Palette

LORAC Beauty and the Beast PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes 16 eyeshadows that are supposed to be all new and using the brand’s PRO formula. The eyeshadows felt smooth, finely-milled, and had some powderiness (as a result of being so soft) and felt comparable to past Pro palettes, though I have found that the original Pro palettes seem to have more substance and adhere better (without primer) than newer palettes.

Some shades were pigmented, while others were sheer, and some applied fine without primer and others sheered out so easily that it was impossible to maintain opaque coverage on the lid. The wear was six to eight hours with a lot of shades falling short. The palette itself is massive, as it was designed to resemble a book, which keeps with the theme but still made it bulky and not at all travel-friendly.
