Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners (x5)

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a smooth, pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. Overall, I liked the formula; it had good wear-time, buildable pigmentation (typically semi-opaque in one stroke), and enough creaminess that there wasn’t any tugging during application. Their color range was a little more unique from the shades I bought, but they also had some more typical shades like black, brown, etc.

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette ($21.50 for 0.50 oz.) is a taupe-themed palette that features ten eyeshadows. Currently, for U.S. readers, you’ll only find it through Zoeva’s website, which will ship, but at a flat rate of $16.50 (so make your order count). I have ordered from them previously and have had good luck (fast and well-packaged). Zoeva’s eyeshadow formula is supposed to be richly pigmented and blendable. The formula used in the palette is nice; most of the shades had good pigmentation and were easy to apply to the lid. There’s a nice mix of finishes, and the colors coordinate well with each other. The palette could use one or two deeper shades (and skip one of the lighter or mid-tone shades) for more contrast, I think.

MAC Foiled Eyeshadows (Part 2)

MAC Magic In Your Eyes Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with warm, mauve undertones and a silver sparkle over a more metallic finish. It had great pigmentation whether used dry or damp, but the finish became more metallic when used damp. This shade applied well and blended out easily, while the color wore for eight hours before creasing. MAC Tendersmoke (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Plum Grand (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Cosmic Aura #3 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Buxom Patent Leather (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Vendome (P) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Cricket (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar).

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.42 oz.) contains sixteen eyeshadows; fourteen in heart-shaped pans and two in oversized, rectangular-shaped pans. It is a primarily neutral palette that leans medium-to-dark with a few more neutral shades in it. There are four “pops” of color I would say, and there is a fair amount of pink in it (very light pink, light pink, light-medium pink, fuchsia). I liked it overall, and I found it one of the easiest Too Faced palettes to apply without primer as less shades sheered out in this palette.

MAC Foiled Eyeshadows (Part 1)

MAC Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula (we’ll probably never see it again, because when MAC puts out a good holiday formula, you now, like Mega Metals, it’ll disappear forever!) that can be used wet or dry. I don’t have much more information about the formula than that, though, so I am making an assumption that they will be sheerer dry and more intense damp (which is how MAC has touted their wet/dry eyeshadow formulas in the past). That being said, when the collection launches online, I will go back and see if there are more specific claims and make any relevant updates at that time.

MAC x Ellie Goulding Halcyon Nights Palette

MAC Halcyon Nights Face Kit ($44.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes four powder eyeshadows and one Cream Colour Base (cream product), with the cream product housed underneath the powders, so you shouldn’t get too much cross-contamination from the powders. I liked it overall, though it is, of course, more dupable given it is a set of neutral shades. I think it would be an easier to sell if it was a quad of powder eyeshadows (it would also be more streamlined, as it wouldn’t have a second level to it) with the Cream Colour Base sold separately. It is priced pretty similarly to most limited edition, specially-packaged eyeshadow quads (which contain the same amount of powder product), so it’s almost like getting the CCB for free.
