Loaded

NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features twelve eyeshadows in varying shades of warmer neutral tones. The palette will launch March 22nd at NARS and March 28th at other retailers. Some shades were nice, some shades were less impressive, but the majority of them would benefit greatly from an eyeshadow primer–both for longer wear as well as greater color payoff.

Soleil Afterglow

Tom Ford Soleil Afterglow Soleil Contouring Compact ($108.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer housed in a white compact, which contains a ton of product (as it should, I suppose, at this price point!). Per the brand, all three are supposed to provide “sheer to medium coverage.” The only one that was true to the idea of “sheer to medium” was the bronzer, whereas the highlighter and blush were rather pigmented.

Pearl

Smashbox Pearl Spotlight Palette ($35.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains three highlighters: a pale yellow, peachy brown, and golden peach. Smashbox describes the palette as having three finishes–subtle glow, moderate, and super sparkle–and that the texture is “ultra-blendable, velvety smooth.” The first two highlighters were better performing than the third, which had a drier, stiffer texture that made it harder to apply and much less pigmented compared to the other two shades.

Jardins de Lumieres

Chanel Jardins de Lumieres Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a more muted, smoky shades of deep olive green, golden peach, mid-tone gray, and dark plum. It’s a new, limited edition palette for spring/summer that uses Chanel’s “vibrant, pigment-rich formula” that is “long-lasting” and has a “soft, smooth texture.” The color combination was interesting, and it’s one I’d wear again, but I wish the shades were more pigmented and stayed more true-to-color applied to the lid.

Gold

Smashbox Gold Spotlight Palette ($35.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains three powder highlighters that are golden in tone/hue. Smashbox describes the palette as having three finishes–subtle glow, moderate, and super sparkle–and that the texture is “ultra-blendable, velvety smooth.” The first two shades are better in quality, while the last shade had a firmer, drier texture and was more sparkle than powder. Whether one prefers or steers clear of sparkle is one matter, but this type of sparkle did not apply well to the skin, as it was looser and did not spread evenly.

Jardins Eclatants

Chanel Jardins Eclatants Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette that featured a pink-peach, peach, warm brown, and deep, coppery brown. It’s a new, limited edition palette for spring/summer that uses Chanel’s “vibrant, pigment-rich formula” that is “long-lasting” and has a “soft, smooth texture.” The colors are definitely dupable, so I see this working best for someone who prefers Chanel’s formula, is looking for an all-in-one quad, or uses these types of shades often. The palette had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, seven to eight hour wear, and was very easy to apply and blend out.
