What Will You Be Wearing at the Midnight Hour?

Cinderella Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.196 oz.) consists of four eyeshadows and is part of a limited edition collaboration collection between Sephora and Disney. The shades are described as “pearl shimmer,” “champagne nude,” “grey pearl,” and “charcoal shimmer glitter.”

The first shade is a bright white with a very subtle gray tinge. It has a high-frost finish that’s almost metallic. The texture was soft, buttery, and yielded good color payoff. Maybelline Too Cool is very similar. theBalm Sassy is also close. MAC Forgery is a bit grayer. Inglot #453 is more metallic.

The second shade is a darkened beige-peach with a champagne sheen. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft. Chanel Complice is a touch lighter. theBalm Stubborn is pinker. Chanel Emerveille is similar. MAC Darling Coquette is a touch darker. Urban Decay Sellout is lighter.

The third shade is a medium gray with a silver sheen. It had decent color payoff, but it was drier than the other shades, so it was stiffer in texture. Wet ‘n’ Wild Shimmer the Night Away is a soft frost. Guerlain Les Gris is cooler-toned. MAC Evening Grey is darker.

The last shade is a dark gray that turns rather brown when I swatched it. It was dry, a bit stiff, and had the least color payoff of the four–a little sheer and uneven. MAC Moody is darker. Urban Decay Black Market is much darker.

I like the palette, and certainly, it performed better than I anticipated (but I was, admittedly, rather cynical when I approached this collection), but it didn’t knock it out of the park like the larger eyeshadow palette did.  This set of shades is interesting, and I will say that the warmer beige/peach shade is an odd choice.  I didn’t feel like it complemented the other three cooler-toned shades.  Perhaps it could have used a silvery-blue or really inky black.  When I wore the shades, they lasted almost eight hours over a primer, and without a primer, there was noticeable fading after eight hours.
