City Lights

Chanel City Lights Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for fall that features three neutrals and a soft, pale pink. As much as I liked the idea of this, the shades did not mesh as well together as I expected based on past experience with Chanel’s quads. I can see it working well for someone who tends to use one or two shades but found the undertones to be a little competing instead of harmonious when using three or four shades together, personally (this subjective observations had no impact on rating). The quality of three shades was quite nice–pigmented, easy to use, long-wearing–while the light pink was rather sheer.

6 Frozen Turquoise

Make Up For Ever 6 Frozen Turquoise Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a cool, white base with icy lavender to teal shifting shimmer. It had a strong, nearly metallic sheen but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture as the particle size was so fine. It worked beautifully as a cheek highlighter, as it reflected light well and maintained its shift, and it also worked well along the inner tearduct to brighten the eyes. The consistency was soft, velvety, and finely-milled, which made it easy to blend out. It had sheerer, buildable coverage applied dry and more opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours on me.

The Star Lit Powders can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” with an “ultra-fine loose powder” that can be used “wet or dry to customize coverage intensity and luminosity.” While checking the weight on these, I noticed that the weight differs from shade to shade; this one had a mere 0.02 oz. while others ranged from 0.03 oz. to 0.09 oz. I also noticed that it appears the brand identifies what area you can use a shade on by listing an icon on the back of the jar in the shape of a pair of lips, an eyeball, and then a face (presumably for cheeks).

Road Movie

Chanel Road Movie Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent palette featuring a beige, golden copper, bluish teal, and a blackened blue. It had a murky, smoky vibe with pops of color. It was decent but for someone who wants really rich, intense pigmentation, I think they would be happier with another brand, while those who prefer more buildable, softer, and more muted smoky hues, this might appeal.

11 Golden Orange

Make Up For Ever 11 Golden Orange Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a slightlty muted, medium-dark coral with warm, golden shimmer and a stronger pink undertone. It had sheer coverage applied dry, which intensified to nearly opaque coverage when applied damp. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable on the skin (both wet and dry), and it was somewhat buildable–up to medium coverage–dry when I applied it to the cheeks, but it was less buildable on the eyes without a dampened brush or primer. It wore well for eight hours on my cheeks and seven and a half hours on my eyes.

Rockin' Rebel

MAC Rockin’ Rebel MAC Girls Personality Palette ($39.50 for TBA oz.) is a set of brighter blues and greens that includes eight eyeshadows and one highlighter. The palette features a new eyeshadow formula with four finishes–Satin Shine, Smooth Pearl, Foiled Shadow, and Creamy Matte–that are supposed to have a “creamy, silky texture with superior colour payoff” along with a powder highlighter that’s described as “lightweight” and has “just the right amount of pearl and pop.”

Overall, the formula isn’t night and day from the brand’s standard powder eyeshadow (and did not seem like they reinvented powder eyeshadow!), but it was noticeably softer, more finely-milled, and the Foiled finishes were denser and very sparkly–almost like an amped up take on their Lustre eyeshadows. The Creamy Matte finish seemed to have more pigmentation and blendability than of the brand’s firmer mattes have had. Unfortunately, the quality of each shade varied enough that it was not a slam dunk formulation, but I liked the direction of the formula but would like to see better consistency.

18 Golden Grey

Make Up For Ever 18 Golden Grey Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a medium, bluish gray base with green-to-gold shifting shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry with semi-opaque coverage when applied damp. I felt like this had more potential swatched then applied, as the gray base seemed to blend away rather quickly so it often looked more like a golden sheen than the cooler, gold-green-gray combo of the swatch (or jar). You wouldn’t think that this would be workable on the cheeks for most, but since the base ended up disappearing, it actually was more than workable–it ran cooler in undertone but did not appear nearly as gray after blending it out. Unfortunately, when I tried it on the eyes, the same thing happened–it was mostly shimmer and lacked the base (which made it a more original shade). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.
