Sassy Siennas

Dose of Colors Sassy Siennas Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains a mix of corals and warmer, reddish-browns all with a matte finish. The formula was soft, moderately powdery, and a little denser/more substantial than the average matte formula, which I felt made these a little harder to use if one isn’t used to this type of product. They needed to be used with a lighter touch, and even then, sometimes there was still fallout, but they were quite pigmented and lasted for seven to eight hours on me.

Best & Worst of Dose of Colors Block Party Eyeshadows

Dose of Colors Block Party Eyeshadow  

Dose of Colors Block Party Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a new formula that’s “packed with tons of reflects” for an “ultra-dazzling finish.” It is recommended that they be applied with fingertips for maximum intensity (and the swatches thus use fingertips), but they can be used “using your preferred brush” for softer coverage. Some shades are softer and more cream-like than others, as there were a few that were drier and stiffer, which made them harder to apply with anything other than a fingertip. The product is definitely most pigmented and typically opaque when applied with fingertips, and I think if that’s not something you’re keen on, I’d skip the formula and look for a more traditional powder product in a similar hue or try patting on something more glittery over an existing shade you own.

There was slight to moderate fallout, depending on the shade, during application, and this was intensified whenever I used a brush. I didn’t experience tons of fallout during wear, though. They tended to wear around eight hours before fading or creasing. They have a slightly thicker consistency that made them harder to diffuse and blend into other textures (like Dose of Colors’ matte eyeshadows). I can see these working well for someone who likes to have a spotlight of glitter and shimmer on the center of the lid or who does more cut creases. Overall, some of them are lovely and easy enough to work with, but there were definitely some misses that take patience and effort/additional bases or tools.

There did seem to be similarity to the formula Dose of Colors used in the Desi x Katy Eyeshadow Quad, though it seemed like a lot of the Block Party shades also had dimethicone in them (about mid-way through the ingredient list).

Blushing Berries

Dose of Colors Blushing Berries Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains a soft coral, muted copper, berry, plum, and soft black with all five being fairly matte in finish. The formula used was more powdery and a bit denser, though it was buildable and blendable overall. I personally felt that there was a bit of a learning curve to minimize fallout, though, and to get the right amount of product on the brush.

Reflection

Dose of Colors Reflection Block Party Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, olive green with strong, warm brown undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth texture that was denser and thicker but not stiff or difficult to work with. It applied well to bare skin, and I was able to use a brush with it if preferred without it being an issue. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.08 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have an "ultra-dazzling finish" with "multi-dimensional reflects." It's designed to be applied "using your finger for maximum intensity" and "softer coverage" can be achieved by using a brush. Some shades are softer and more cream-like than others, as there were a few that were drier and stiffer, which made them harder to apply with anything other than a fingertip. The product is definitely most pigmented and typically opaque when applied with fingertips, and I think if that's not something you're keen on, I'd skip the formula and look for a more traditional powder product in a similar hue or try patting on something more glittery over an existing shade you own.

Olive You

Dose of Colors Olive You Block Party Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark olive green with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was smooth, dense and lightly creamy but not stiff to work with, which made it easy to use it with fingertips or with a brush (and I only had to pack it on or build up with a second layer). It applied well and stayed in place for eight and a half hours without fallout.

Double Take

Dose of Colors Double Take Block Party Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, plumm brown with sivler sparkle. It had excellent pigmentation when applied with fingertips (as recommended) and then more semi-opaque, buildable coverage when used with a brush. The eyeshadow needed to be pressed onto the lid rather than swept on, as the texture was denser and thinner, so the base color adhered really well to bare skin. The sparkles binding fairly well with the underlying base, which helped minimize fallout. It wore well for eight hours with slight fallout over time.
