Urban Decay 1985 Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark magenta purple with pink undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a heavier hand or two layers patted on (not swept). The texture was firmer in the pan and a bit drier overall, though I had no issues blending and diffusing the shade on the lid. On me, the color lasted for just over eight hours before fading noticeably.

Flourish Me Deep

MAC Flourish Me Deep Kajal Crayon ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The Kajal Crayon formula is designed to “be applied in the waterline for bold, saturated colour in one easy swipe” with long-wear. It had good color coverage in one stroke, and it was fully opaque with just a touch more. The consistency was smooth without being wet or waxy, yet it felt soft and smooth enough against the waterline that it was comfortable to apply while still getting good coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my waterline and ten hours on my lower lash line.

Glamourize Me

MAC Glamourize Me Cream Colour Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) features six Cream Colour Shadows. The formula is supposed to have “medium, buildable colour” that is long-wearing, water-resistant, and non-drying. They felt a lot like the Cream Colour Base formula to me: soft, very emollient, and almost “greasy” in a way. They go on thin and have a slight tackiness, and they are hard to build-up or use more than one or two shades at a time, as they look uneven and patchy with more than that. The wear ranged from a few hours to six hours, but a couple of shades creased soon after applying but did not worsen for a few hours later (think of it as “initial creasing” because they don’t really dry down). I think the formula is most suited used all over the lid as a wash or as a lightly tacky, wet base for powder eyeshadows.

The Shining Hour

MAC The Shinnig Hour Dazzleshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes four sparkling eyeshadows in shades of white, gold, peach, and brown. The Dazzleshadow formula is supposed to be very sparkly with a “3D effect” with “stay-true” adhesion that has “minimal fallout.” They’re fun and sparkly, but they perform best as sheer washes of sparkle, patted over a more pigmented product, or applied over a glitter adhesive. They are pretty dismal on their own–sheerer, drier, fallout-prone, and short wearing–and are improved when applied damp–better pigmentation, smoother coverage, less fallout–but still have their share of problems without more help (tacky base, layered over a more pigmented eyeshadow, etc.). I noticed that the eyeshadows in the quad seemed to be drier and looser in the pan compared to the singles I’ve tried in the past.

MAC The Best of Everything Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition smoky palette. I love the color concept, and the four shades complement each other well, but I wasn’t thrilled with the performance of two shades (one was incredibly disappointing!).

Pastel Goth

Kat Von D Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes eight matte eyeshadows with six pops of color and then a dark gray and stark white. The formula felt very velvety, finely-milled, and was blendable on the skin, but each shade had a fair amount of excessive powder that kicked up in the pan. The strange thing was that there was little fallout; I used seven of the eight shades in the look demoed above, and I didn’t have to cleanup at all underneath the eye. The pigmentation was decent to good, but I did find it worked best patted on, rather than swept on, for best results.

There was more substance to the formula, so they did not sheer out as easily as I would have expected given the dustiness of the texture, and so they adhered better and went on more smoothly to bare skin (I actually felt they worked better over bare lids or regular primer and not as well over a lightly tacky cream base, like NYX Milk). The pigmentation was mostly opaque with a couple of exceptions. Two of the eight shades–Dagger and Dope–were ones that I didn’t feel blended out like the others. I had particular issues with Dope, as it darkened and lightened on its own accord, so it never looked seamless, and it did this over bare skin as well as over a cream base. The one prevailing issue I had with all the shades was that they were more prone to fading than the average eyeshadow.

I was pleasantly surprised by the palette, as it’s rare to find more pastel shades that actually perform decently, but I found the palette pretty easy to use, and if paired with primer, it was both easy to use and lasted for most of the day (it did seem to fade faster, even over primer, than most, but a good primer would still extend the wear to 10+ hours for me).
