Chanel Seduction (42) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Seduction (42) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a mix of burgundy, beige, rose gold, and brown. It’s a really nice palette of wearable shades, and the quality is good overall. I think Chanel fans will be pleased, and any one who tends to find pigmentation lacking in them will find this a surprise. The texture is incredibly soft and finely-milled, and as a result, some shades can feel almost powdery as the powder loosens from the solid pan very easily. It doesn’t look powdery on the skin, and of course, that ultra soft texture means these blend like a dream. Luckily, that softness didn’t mean that the shades sheered out when applied/blended, and it didn’t result in shorter wear. I wore all four shades yesterday, and they lasted eight hours without fading or creasing (no primer).

Sleek Makeup Sunset i-Divine Palette (Quick)

Sleek Makeup Sunset i-Divine Palette ($12.99 for 0.36 oz.) consists of twelve eyeshadows that are supposed to be intensely pigmented and long-wearing. All twelve shades are, in fact, richly pigmented, wear well, blend beautifully, and are all-around fantastic eyeshadows. To get the same vibrancy as seen in the pan, no primer is needed; I had no trouble applying these to bare lids to get bright, true-to-pan color. Even better, they lasted well for a full eight hours. There was some faint signs of fading with some shades (as noted) after nine hours of wear but very little. The texture of these is very soft, dense, and buttery, and at times, they’re almost so soft that they can crumble, but once you’re using a makeup brush and a light hand, you’re unlikely to encounter any issues. The only thing I’d have loved to see were actual shade names (that desire had no impact on rating, though).

Buxom Menace & Two-Timer Full-Bodied Lipsticks

Buxom Menace Full Bodied Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “rich wine.” It’s a rich, brightened berry-red with cool undertones and very fine ruby red shimmer. It had mostly opaque color with a barely-there translucency that kept it looking more lightweight in comparison to other shades in this formula. The finish was still glossy and luminous, though. It wore well for six hours, and it left behind a berry-ish stain. When I wore it, the formula of Menace was somewhat hydrating. Guerlain Gigolo is a bit darker. Guerlain Orgueil is similar. Giorgio Armani #408 is more muted. Burberry Bright Plum is similar. See comparison swatches.
