Smoke Show

Coloured Raine Smoke Show Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains four warm-toned neutrals, a deep green, and a shimmering black. Five of the six shades are mattes, while the one shimmer was extremely difficult to pair with the mattes as it was much thicker, stiffer, and drier (despite feeling more like a cream in the pan). Everything seemed to be coming together decently until I added Smoke Screen to the outer lid, and it was a disaster–and it would not blend or diffuse out. I was so disappointed that it wasn’t better–I expected so much more based on the Coloured Raine single eyeshadows I’ve tried as well as their Queen of Hearts palette (which was one of the best palettes released in ’16).

Winter Solstice

Huda Beauty Winter Solstice 3D Highlighter Palette ($45.00 for 1.10 oz.) contains a cream highlighter and three powder highlighters housed in a slim, cardboard palette. I liked the palette overall, as none of the products were difficult to apply or blend out, but the textures of the powder shades are denser, so the palette would work best with denser brushes or a heavy hand.

NARS x Man Ray Orgasm/Orgasm Love Triangle

NARS Orgasm/Orgasm Man Ray Love Triangle

NARS Orgasm/Orgasm Man Ray Love Triangle

Orgasm/Orgasm

NARS Orgasm/Orgasm Man Ray Love Triangle ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) contains the brand’s ever-popular Orgasm blush and its more recently released Orgams lipstick. I had initially skipped this duo, as I’ve reviewed the blush umpteen amount of times, and the lipstick was just released, but then I noticed on Sephora it said “Mini Audacious Lipstick in Orgasm,” and I nearly jumped for joy… but it was a lie–it’s just the regular lipstick. If you’re a fan of the golden-shimmered pink that is Orgasm, the duo might be right up your alley!

Berry Cute

Coloured Raine Berry Cute Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes six eyeshadows with a mix of mattes and shimmers. I’ve been a fan of Coloured Raine’s eyeshadows in the past, but I wasn’t as enamored with the formula they have here, or perhaps, it is the pairing of thinner, more powdery mattes with very dense, almost cream-like shimmers that just don’t combine that well. I struggled to use to get the shades to come together decently–normally with enough effort and finagling, I can get to decent but not with this one.

NARS Hot Sand/Rita Man Ray Love Triangle

Hot Sand/Rita

NARS Hot Sand/Rita Man Ray Love Triangle ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) contains a peachy highlighter and a vibrant, warm red lipstick. The highlighter actually seemed better than I remember the full-sized version being, while the lipstick was consistent with the full-sized version.

Value

A full-sized blush retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz. or costs $187.50/oz. A full-sized Audacious lipstick retails for $34.00 and contains 0.14 oz. or costs $242.86/oz. The set contains $15.00 worth of blush and $19.43 worth of lipstick for a total value of $34.43.

Impassioned/Anna

NARS Impassioned/Anna Man Ray Love Triangle ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) contains a muted pink blush and deep pink lipstick. I felt the blush was slightly stiffer and harder to blend out compared to the full-sized version, while the lipstick was consistent with its full-sized version.
