Nightingale

Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.55 oz.) contains 12 eyeshadows in an arrangement of soft, neutral shades with a cooler, grayer tones. The palette is made out of sturdy cardboard and has a large mirror underneath the lid. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth, color-rich, blendable” that is “long-wearing” and “supremely creamy.” My experience with these as hit or miss; some shades were amazing but others were hard to work with. I have no idea how the brand managed to make such a poor beige eyeshadow!

Glambition

Marc Jacobs Beauty Glambition Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral combination of colors with a slightly smokier leaning. It featured seven shades with four different finishes (velvet, satin, silk and lamé). The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “lasting, velvety-rich pigment.” I liked the palette overall, but I wish the deepest shade was more blendable as the rest of the palette was pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

A few obvious differences between the new Eye-Conic palettes and the previous Style Eye-Con No. 7 palettes: they actually decreased by $10 in price (they used to be $59) with only a slight decrease in quantity (0.21 oz. vs. 0.25 oz.), and each eyeshadow has been named. The ingredient lists differ from shade to shade, which makes it harder to really compare easily, and I saw a lot of similar ingredients but order often varied; they seemed similar to me just by touching, wearing, and applying with maybe slightly higher dimethicone quantities in the shimmery shades and a slightly firmer press (but not stiff) for more matte shades (so less powder kicked up in the pan).

Gold (300)

Maybelline Gold (300) Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter ($9.99 for 0.67 oz.) is a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and fine pearl. This shade had the finest shimmer of the three released, which made for a better all-over glow product as it did not look like distinctive particles scattered over the skin and yielded a luminous sheen instead.

The formula is supposed to have a “micro-pearl liquid” texture that can be used “alone, [mixed] with primer, [mixed] with foundation, or [as a] spotlight” on the face. It had a lightweight, thin texture that felt more emollient compared to the other two shades in the formula, which made it work better for mixing in with base products but more prone to being rather sheer when patted onto the high points of the face as a standalone highlighter. It had semi-sheer coverage, which did not build up well. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me alone.
