Winter 2018

Tom Ford Beauty Winter 2018 Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring four eyeshadows, one blush, and one highlighter. I find that these palettes are very hit or miss and tend to lack consistency within each respective release. I had higher hopes for this season’s iteration as the formula used throughout is more of the gel-powder variety. The eyeshadows were so-so, while the cheek products were much nicer.

103 Pink White

Make Up For Ever 103 Pink White Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) has a silvery-beige base that has a more dominant, pink-to-lavender shift from the shimmer and sparkle in it. On me, it read more iridescent, cool-toned pink than beige most of the time, both on eyes and on cheeks. The texture was full of sparkle, so there wasn’t much of a base color until it was really buffed onto the skin, and then it seemed like there was a subtle, pearlescent sheen coming through from the base pigment.

As one might expect, it’s not particularly easy to apply or to wear without some sort of adhesive spray, dampened brush, or tacky base. I think if you’re prepared to use one of those aforementioned items with this product, you won’t be disappointed, but it’s not much of a standalone product without getting moderate fallout over time. It was easiest to wear buffed onto my cheeks, as it melded with the skin there more than when I applied it to the inner corner, as I enjoyed noticeable fallout throughout the eight hours I wore it for (unless I used it with a setting spray). There was light sparkle migration over time but what I’d deem “acceptable” for a such a sparkle-heavy product. It had medium, buildable pigmentation depending on how it was applied and what it was applied over.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.08 oz. - $325.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable, blendable, [and] light-reflective" and can be used on the eyes, face, and body. The brand says that they can be applied with "brush or fingers," and while they say that "for cleaner application and stronger hold, wet brush with" an adhesive spray, it does imply it can be used without for less clean/less hold. The powders seem as finely-milled as they're going to get, but they have micro-sparkle and sparkle to them so they have a drier, almost loose glittery texture overall. Some shades seemed to have a stronger base color that came through than others, which were more glittery overall with a sheerer or transparent base.

I wore several of them on cheeks as well as eyes with most shades performing decently without an adhesive spray/tacky base, but the wear time was between six and eight hours with light to moderate fallout (depending on the shade) on eyes and eight hours on cheeks with some sparkle migration over time. I definitely would recommend using the product with an adhesive spray for the "cleaner application and stronger hold" the brand says it would result in.

Salvaje

Colour Pop Salvaje 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition mix of warmer neutrals and pops of blue/teal. What I liked about some of the neutrals in the palette was the inclusion of shades like Malbec and Sangria, which are very red-toned but almost “cool” in tone compared to the typical red/berry shades we see. The quality was good across 11 of the 12 shades; I only had issues with Corona, which was a more loosely-pressed, more glittery shade that worked fine with a dampened brush or fingertip (what I’d consider easily solvable).

109 Golden

Make Up For Ever 109 Golden Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) has a medium-dark, coppery-brown base with gold-to-green shifting sparkle and shimmer. It had a stronger, more pigmented base to it, and it seemed to melt a bit more on more normal-to-oily skin (rather than dry, like my arm) and didn’t sheer out too readily but would be best applied with a dampened brush or used with a tacky base/adhesive spray for maximum coverage and minimal fallout. The texture felt as finely-milled as expected, given it had a lot of sparkles in it.

There was a definite shift that was noticeable, though it tended too look a bit brighter and lighter (almost in-between shift and no-shift) overall. For example, I wore it on my lower lash line (shown above) and it has a greener look (with neither copper nor gold dominating), whereas it was more gold-green shift on my cheeks (and I enhanced the gold tones by using it with a yellowish highlighter for the look in the slideshow). On its own, it lasted for eight hours with moderate fallout on my lid but closer to eight hours with some traveling/migration on cheeks.

Sweet Nothings

Colour Pop Sweet Nothings 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette exclusively available at Ulta. There are only three shades (Canele, Tuile, and Mousse) that are new (at least, to me), while the others have been released (across various products) in the past. I think the palette is cohesive and easy to create a myriad of pink/plum-themed looks. There was a good mix of shimmers and mattes and depths. For those that don’t have similar color schemes in their stash, it’s an affordable, high-quality palette to consider.

Pretty Punk

MAC Pretty Punk MAC Girls Personality Palette ($41.00 for 0.28 oz.) contains pops of color, like blue and green, paired with glittery silver and taupe. Whatever formula MAC is using in the shimmers goes too far in the cream department that they’ve become more solidified and difficult to work with–I had really had to jab at a few of the shimmery eyeshadows with my brush to get the product to dislodge, while using fingertips did better as they softened the pan of product and made it easier for product to transfer from fingertip to lid.
