Debauched

NARS Debauched Duo Eyeshadow ($35.00 for 0.14 oz.) features a warm plum and a blackened purple. The two have enough contrast in finish and depth to work well together for a very deep, smoky eye. Both shades applied well for me and were nicely pigmented!

Colours on the Verge

MAC Colours on the Verge Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette with five, shimmery shades ranging fro minty green to deep black.

Per MAC, the formula is supposed to be “long-wearing [for] 8 hours’ that is “crease-proof” and “fade-proof.” The eyeshadows “can be used wet or dry” and have “flexible coverage.” The eyeshadows tended to be semi-sheer to semi-opaque when applied dry and then intensified to semi-opaque to opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The textures were soft, somewhat powdery in the pan, so using them with a dampened brush usually yielded the best results–more even coverage, richer coverage, smoother textures, and a better overall look.

My Moon

MAC My Moon Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a shimmery, warm white and a deep, matt black. The textures of the two were a bit more dramatic in difference, so I did not find the matte black to go over the shimmery white as well as it could have. This was the result of the shimmery white being chunkier and flakier, so it did not have an even texture on the skin.

Summer Solstice

ColourPop Summer Solstice Super Shock Shadow Quad ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes four, full-sized cream eyeshadows in an assortment of copper and brown hues. All four performed similarly with respect to wear and application, though two were more emollient and were not quite as pigmented as the other two. Overall, I liked the set of shades an found them to work well without much effort.

Prism

Anastasia Prism Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for oz.) is sort of a mixed bag in terms of quality, though I think whether that is functionally true will depend on how you prefer to apply your eyeshadows. I had trouble with a few of the shimmery shades when it came to applying them with a dry brush (even over primer); a dampened brush or fingertip worked best for getting better coverage, more even application, and a more intense finish. If you’re someone who tends to use their shimmery eyeshadows wet already, then there’s no extra effort to worry about, but if you’re not, then really consider whether that’s something that you’d add to your routine.

The mattes were nice overall, though Obsidian was a total miss for me (to the point where I’m not sure why it was significantly different in texture compared to the others, and even for the brand, it was an exceptionally firm, poor performing matte eyeshadow) and Sphere was dusty enough to be hard to build up or use as a lid color without a creamier base underneath it.

I liked how the palette’s colors worked together and felt that there was a good mix of finishes, though I tend to prefer the inclusion of a few satin/pearl finishes to help blend mattes into metallics but did not find that to be a real issue with the textures between all the shades in this palette.

Mode to Modern

Laura Mercier Mode to Modern 4-Piece Caviar Stick Set ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition set featuring four, miniature-sized jumbo eyeshadow pencils. All four shades can be purchased individually if that is preferred. The Caviar Stick formula is supposed to have “easy application with “long-lasting color” that “blends and layers beautifully onto the lids with rich pigment-payoff.” This year’s set includes two matte shades and two shimmers. All our shades were richly pigmented and long-wearing with textures being creamy and non-tugging.

Value

A full-sized Caviar Stick retails for $29.00 and contains 0.05 oz. or costs $580.00/oz. This set contains $69.60 worth of product.
