Perfect-O

Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfect-O Omega Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a bright, yellow-leaning beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage but was somewhat powdery in the pan, which led to slight fallout during application, though it had good adhesion to bare skin and was more pigmented than other similar-colored shades with this type of texture. It did seem to look more white-based when I applied it to my brow bone and didn’t play as well as with other shades due to that stronger white base coming through. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.13 oz. - $223.08 Per Ounce

The formula promises "12 hours" of wear with "high-impact, crease-resistant color." The matte shades were very smooth and finely-milled that they felt almost cream-like, though they were definitely a powder. They were pigmented and most shades blended out easily over bare skin with eight to nine hour wear. The shimmery shades were creamier, a bit more silicone-like by touch, but they weren't too dense or too thick, so they didn't emphasize my lid texture and still applied well with brushes. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me and were typically quite pigmented.

Supernova

Bad Habit Supernova 15-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes a mix of mattes and shimmers across pink/red-toned shades–from plum to copper to magenta–with taupe and brown grounding shades and a pop of rich, violet purple. Most of the shades were pigmented, blendable, and easy to use with wear time between seven and eight hours. There were a few shades that needed to be built up or used with a dampened brush to make them perform well.

That Girl

Too Faced That Girl Throw Back Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and gold and plum sparkle and finer pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to my lips, though I noticed it didn’t adhere as well toward the center of my lower lip. The consistency had moderate slip, was lightly creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, despite the amount of shimmer/sparkle in it. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.10 oz. - $220.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "creamy, comfortable wear" with "full-coverage" pigmentation and a "multi-reflective glitter finish for high-pigment sparkle payoff." If you aren't a fan of glitter, just skip to the next lipstick formula, because this is for glitter lovers. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a few that had sheerer coverage. For as glitter-packed as they were, they felt creamy and smooth being applied and had minimal grittiness even as they wore away. They had average wear--around four hours--with some of the shades that were prone to staining lingering for closer to six hours. The formula was hydrating and easy to wear--these were the very definition of fun and so on-brand for Too Faced. They finally found a way to inject glitter in all of the ways and actually have it work pretty well.

Air

Wet ‘n’ Wild Air MegaGlo Highlighting Bar ($6.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a pale pink with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. The powder was soft, more loosely pressed to the point where it seemed a little drier/dustier in the pan, but I didn’t notice any of that in practice as I tapped on the highlighter on my cheek bones. It applied evenly and diffused beautifully along the edges, and as I blended the powder onto my skin, it looked “melted” and yielded a smooth sheen that did not accentuate my skin’s texture. It wore well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.30 oz. - $23.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to yield a "lit-from-within glow" that "delivers a strobing effect" with a "super-smooth" texture. All of the shades felt a little dusty, a bit dry, in the pan and by the touch, but they applied beautifully and sat well on my skin--they almost "melted" onto the skin for a very smooth, luminous sheen. The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, but the ones that weren't full coverage were buildable. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Aloha

Sephora Aloha Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth, creamy, and had moderate slip and felt a touch wet initially, but it dried down fast enough that it didn’t feather or get into my fine lines. It wore well for 10 and a half hours on me before it started to thin noticeably.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.04 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "pigmented" with "one stroke" application that is "waterproof" and lasts for "12 hours." I've been a long-time fan of the formula for its variety of shades that are typically pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable to apply, and easy to work with--they aren't too tough to remove nor do they take too long (or dry down too quickly) to dry. The matte shades tend to be the best, while the shimmery shades are good but can be semi-opaque at times. The glittery/sparkly shades have the most inconsistency, usually with respect to pigmentation. They tend to wear around 10 hours on me.

Soft and Sultry

Milani Soft and Sultry 12-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains a mix of neutrals, taupes, and deep gray/black hues. It has “smoky eye” written all over it. For someone who regularly uses eyeshadow primer and prefers to build up some of their mid-tone shades, I think it would work just fine, but my experience was that several of the matte shades were a little too powdery to remain pigmented in practice, had some fallout, and overall, the formula used in the palette was shorter-wearing than average. Used over primer, they lasted longer (12 hours), but they did show fading/creasing sooner than better formulas, even over primer.
