Age of Opulence

By Beauty Bay Age of Opulence 20-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($15.00 for 1 oz.) is a cooler-toned, jewel-toned color story with a lot of teal, blue-purple, and pops of gold throughout. It contained 12 matte shades and eight shimmer shades. For the types of colors included, it performed better than anticipated, but some of the matte shades were not as blendable as ideal, so this palette is something that would really have to be used over an eyeshadow primer and is better suited for someone who doesn’t mind spending a little longer blending out their eyeshadow.

RSVP

RSVP is a light yellow with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, somewhat powdery consistency, but it managed to hang onto its opacity when applied and blended out on bare skin. There were signs of fading present after seven and a half hours of wear.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "packed full of pigment" and "super blendable" while being able to "[last] all day without fading." There seem to be two distinctive finishes: matte and metallic, so I've broken down the overview between them.

The matte eyeshadows were semi-opaque to opaque and long-wearing (eight to nine hours for most shades), while the blendability depended on the shade. The consistency offered light to medium powderiness, so it was usually better to using a lighter hand, then build up, or tap off excess and gently press the matte product to the skin before blending. I found that the majority of fallout potential was in the initial laydown of color, but I didn't have issues with fallout as I blended out the product (even if a few shades sheered out a bit).

A lot of the matte shades that I've tried are colors that are less often seen by brands, and these are often shades that seem harder for brands to do right, so Beauty Bay ended up performing rather well (even if some shades took a little more effort to blend than ideal) compared to other attempts by brands at those shades. I think the matte formula will pair well with a primer, which definitely helped make blending a little easier (though not always foolproof!).

The metallic formula was more interesting as it was very emollient and more cream-like than powder-like, even with more silicone-heavy shimmers being quite popular. Beauty Bay's metallics are creamier to the point where there's often an indent or dip left behind after using with fingertips.

Most of the shimmer shades picked up well enough with a brush, but a flatter, firmer brush was better than something fluffier, and I had to be careful not to pick-up too much product or else fallout was an issue. A few shimmers picked up fine with a brush but had moderate fallout when attempting to transfer the color from brush to lid. The shimmers did apply better with fingertips overall, particularly as it seemed to minimize fallout.

Prohibition

Prohibition is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but not too thin or prone to fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Gold Digger

Gold Digger is a medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was softly-pressed into the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout, so it picked up readily with a dry brush and had good adhesion to bare skin. It had opaque color payoff that lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Hope is a bright, medium blue-leaning teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was buildable on bare skin. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but blendable and not prone to sheering out too readily. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Champagne

Champagne is a light-medium, yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the texture was moderately dense, more cream-like, and a little thick, so it worked better with a denser brush in order to pick up product and transfer it to the lid. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Rich

Rich is a muted, darker green-leaning teal with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a thinner, drier texture that wasn’t as blendable, so it really needed to be layered over a smoothing primer to go on evenly. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that stayed on decently for eight hours on me.

Vintage

Vintage is a deep gold with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and almost cream-like, but it wasn’t overly thick. It wore well for eight hours before creasing a bit.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "packed full of pigment" and "super blendable" while being able to "[last] all day without fading." There seem to be two distinctive finishes: matte and metallic, so I've broken down the overview between them.

The matte eyeshadows were semi-opaque to opaque and long-wearing (eight to nine hours for most shades), while the blendability depended on the shade. The consistency offered light to medium powderiness, so it was usually better to using a lighter hand, then build up, or tap off excess and gently press the matte product to the skin before blending. I found that the majority of fallout potential was in the initial laydown of color, but I didn't have issues with fallout as I blended out the product (even if a few shades sheered out a bit).

A lot of the matte shades that I've tried are colors that are less often seen by brands, and these are often shades that seem harder for brands to do right, so Beauty Bay ended up performing rather well (even if some shades took a little more effort to blend than ideal) compared to other attempts by brands at those shades. I think the matte formula will pair well with a primer, which definitely helped make blending a little easier (though not always foolproof!).

The metallic formula was more interesting as it was very emollient and more cream-like than powder-like, even with more silicone-heavy shimmers being quite popular. Beauty Bay's metallics are creamier to the point where there's often an indent or dip left behind after using with fingertips.

Most of the shimmer shades picked up well enough with a brush, but a flatter, firmer brush was better than something fluffier, and I had to be careful not to pick-up too much product or else fallout was an issue. A few shimmers picked up fine with a brush but had moderate fallout when attempting to transfer the color from brush to lid. The shimmers did apply better with fingertips overall, particularly as it seemed to minimize fallout.

Curfew

Curfew is a deep purple with strong, cool blue undertones and a matte finish. It had a slightly drier, thinner texture with light powderiness in the pan, which made it a shade better applied in thinner, sheerer layers and built up as it wasn’t as blendable, especially if applied at higher coverage initially. I’d recommend using it over an eyeshadow primer for better blendability, too. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Jazz

Jazz is a rich, molten gold with strong, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented, while the texture felt smooth, almost cream-like, but picked up and transferred well with a dry brush (though fingertips yielded a smoother layer overall). This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Flapper

Flapper is a bright, magenta purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was slightly drier with light powderiness in the pan, and while it was fairly blendable, it could have been easier to work with overall. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable on bare skin. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

Ace

Ace is a bright, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and a shiny, sparkling finish. The texture was more emollient than the typical metallic eyeshadow, so it was almost cream-like in that respect, but it did require fingertips or a denser brush to apply it onto the lid. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Silk Stockings

Silk Stockings is a soft, medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it was fairly powdery and more prone to fallout as well as sheering out too readily, so I would recommend pairing it with a primer. It wore decently for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Revival

Revival is a bright, medium blue with cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a more emollient, almost cream-like texture, which applied best with a fingertip or a flat, synthetic brush really pressed/pushed on. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer and lasted nicely for eight hours before creasing faintly.

Speakeasy

Speakeasy is a rich burgundy with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a slightly drier, thinner texture, which wasn’t as blendable as some of the other matte eyeshadows in the palette. It was easier to use over an eyeshadow primer, which helped it go on more evenly and diffuse with less effort. There were signs of fading apparent after eight and a half hours of wear, and it left a stain behind.

Crush

Crush is a light, peachy-pink with tons of gold sparkle/shimmer. It had a denser, thicker consistency that was harder to work with, as it applied unevenly and bunched up on itself. The best way to apply it was by pressing it onto the lid and blending it minimally. It had semi-sheer, somewhat buildable coverage, but I’d use it to layer on top of other shades. This shade lasted decently for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "packed full of pigment" and "super blendable" while being able to "[last] all day without fading." There seem to be two distinctive finishes: matte and metallic, so I've broken down the overview between them.

The matte eyeshadows were semi-opaque to opaque and long-wearing (eight to nine hours for most shades), while the blendability depended on the shade. The consistency offered light to medium powderiness, so it was usually better to using a lighter hand, then build up, or tap off excess and gently press the matte product to the skin before blending. I found that the majority of fallout potential was in the initial laydown of color, but I didn't have issues with fallout as I blended out the product (even if a few shades sheered out a bit).

A lot of the matte shades that I've tried are colors that are less often seen by brands, and these are often shades that seem harder for brands to do right, so Beauty Bay ended up performing rather well (even if some shades took a little more effort to blend than ideal) compared to other attempts by brands at those shades. I think the matte formula will pair well with a primer, which definitely helped make blending a little easier (though not always foolproof!).

The metallic formula was more interesting as it was very emollient and more cream-like than powder-like, even with more silicone-heavy shimmers being quite popular. Beauty Bay's metallics are creamier to the point where there's often an indent or dip left behind after using with fingertips.

Most of the shimmer shades picked up well enough with a brush, but a flatter, firmer brush was better than something fluffier, and I had to be careful not to pick-up too much product or else fallout was an issue. A few shimmers picked up fine with a brush but had moderate fallout when attempting to transfer the color from brush to lid. The shimmers did apply better with fingertips overall, particularly as it seemed to minimize fallout.

Velvet

Velvet is a medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It was very powdery, yet thin, and this resulted in sheer to semi-sheer coverage, which wasn’t buildable and blended away to almost nothing. I tried it over a primer, and it wasn’t much better; it would need to go over a tackier base to improve at all. What little translated seemed to last for six to seven hours on me.

Decadent

Decadent is a vivid, medium violet with strong, blue undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was dense without being too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Lavish

Lavish is a bright, cobalt blue with strong, blue undertones and a matte finish. The texture was thinner, slightly stiff compared to most of the other shades, but it had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that remained fairly blendable. I’d advise using thinner, sheerer layers to spend less time blending out in the end. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

A very interesting colour story but in the last year I’ve become very snob about low cost eyeshadows (while I have zero problem In buying low cost with a lot of other type of makeup products ). Unfortunately, the kind of brand I gravitate toward tend to be less innovative nowadays, play on a safe ground. While low cist brands are less shy! Okay, being this the situation, wallet thanks

Overall, a pretty good palette, with only one or two duds, but the rest are definitely workable and indeed very good quality. My personal favourite shade was Vintage – a beautiful brown neutral shade. I think the brand generally did a good job with the colourful mattes.

How frustrating! I only have five dupes for this palette (perhaps a couple from plates not in the database), but still this would be a palette for me, so I’m thinking do I take the risk (@$15 that’s not much) on a “B” palette? And you did such a great look with it too!
