Disrupt

Auric Disrupt Smoke Reflect Eye Shadow Duo ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo featuring a sparkling, peach-to-pink duochrome powder topper with a deeper, reddish-plum cream eyeshadow. The two performed in line with how the brand described them, though the texture of the powder seemed overly firm, which made it a little less versatile with respect to best application methods than past powders released in the duos.

Disrupt (Powder)

Disrupt (Powder) has a slightly transparent base with fine, duochrome sparkle that shifted from peachy-gold to pink with a moderate shine. The duochrome shift was very strong when using this shade on its own, but a lot of the shift was lost when patted over the cream eyeshadow–it ended up looking mostly like a lighter pink sparkle over the cream. The powder was more firmly-pressed into the pan, though it had a lot of glide, but you’ll want to use a fingertip to pick up product evenly or else a dampened brush.

I only had some success with a dry brush if I pushed at the surface with a heavier hand to get some product to release. It applied evenly to bare skin and wasn’t prone to fallout during application or later on during wear. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

-

It is supposed to be a "light-reflecting" eyeshadow with "high-shine pearls" that can be used alone or as a top coat. The brand describes them as having "micro-glitter," though only one of the shades reviewed contain plastic (PET) glitter.

They had more translucent bases, which was as described, but there was a lot of sparkle/shimmer, so the result was more medium to opaque, depending on the shade. The consistency was slightly drier, more firmly-packed into the pan overall with more of a glide than a denser, thicker silicone-like feel (like some more intense metallic formulas these days). One shade was noticeably drier/more firmly-pressed to the point where it seemed to impact the application/coverage relative to the other two shades.

They applied with minimal fallout and had good adhesion on bare skin, but they are best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush with a pressing/patting motion for the most minimal fallout and the most even lay down of product. I found that I had to be careful blending out the edges with a fluffier, drier brush as fallout was more likely to occur then. They lasted around eight hours and had light fallout over time.

Based on the line-up at review, they should work alone, as more of a sheer wash of sparkle, as well as more packed on as a standalone powder eyeshadow or patted over the coordinating cream eyeshadows they sit on top of.

Disrupt (Cream)

Disrupt (Cream) is a deep plum with a subtle, warmer red base and a satin sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges. It could be used with a fingertip or a brush, and it was blendable enough that it could be sheered out if desired. It lasted well for 10 hours before creasing slightly on me.

Formula Overview

/0.17 oz. - $0.00 Per Ounce

It is supposed to be "smooth, longwear[ing], [and] creaseless" cream eyeshadow. The texture was a cross between a traditional cream eyeshadow (which can feel wetter and thinner) and an airier, more whipped mousse. It was an intensely pigmented formula where one did not need a lot of product to get an even layer of product on the eye.

They had a moderate dry down time; they did dry down to a more powder-like finish that wasn't budge-proof--I could still soften the edges a bit--but had a tendency to settle into my fine lines on the inner lid area as it was drying down, so I had to buff the product back out to even the product out. Once I did this, it didn't keep creasing after the dry down. If I applied and buffed out the product as a sheerer layer of product, then this wasn't an issue as less product was more apt to dry down fairly quickly compared to a more opaque layer of product.

The consistency dried down but wasn't thick, heavy, or inflexible, so it paired well with other powder eyeshadows (not just the one included with it) and could be used as an eyeshadow base or eyeliner as well. Aside from the initial creasing (which I could blend/buff out) as it was drying down, once it dried down, I didn't get creasing until the eight to nine hour mark.

Love seeing deeper toned options for these! But because I’m getting ND Retro Midi palette next month, I feel like that will scratch that itch for rich burgundy shadows…and I’m picturing using a pink/peach UD duochrome shadow I have already with that palette.
