Haze

Melt Cosmetics Haze Eyeshadow Stack (x4) ($48.00 for 0.36 oz.) contains a rich red, copper, gold, and pale silver. All four shades contained some shimmer (ranged from pearl to metallic), so I expect that it’ll work better as a complementary “palette” for those who prefer to have a mix of mattes and shimmers in a look. This set of shades was easy to work with, pigmented, and long-wearing.

Sassy Siennas

Dose of Colors Sassy Siennas Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains a mix of corals and warmer, reddish-browns all with a matte finish. The formula was soft, moderately powdery, and a little denser/more substantial than the average matte formula, which I felt made these a little harder to use if one isn’t used to this type of product. They needed to be used with a lighter touch, and even then, sometimes there was still fallout, but they were quite pigmented and lasted for seven to eight hours on me.

Rust

Melt Cosmetics Rust Eyeshadow Stack (x5) ($58.00 for 0.50 oz.) contains five, warm-toned neutral shades–from beige to rich brown–all with matte finishes. Two of the eyeshadows were pigmented and easy to apply, but three shades left something to be desired due to softer, overly powdery finishes that made the eyeshadows harder to apply, weaker in pigmentation, and more prone to fallout/sheering out.

Soul Blooming

NABLA Cosmetics Soul Blooming Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.39 oz.) is the newest palette from the brand, which contains an assortment of warmer corals and pops of purple/lavender. The color combination worked well, and the majority of the shades were easy to work with–some were more buildable in coverage while some of the shimmers would do better with a primer or a dampened brush to maximum coverage and adhesion.

Born to Run

Urban Decay Born to Run 21-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a solid mix of neutrals and color with a deeper, more autumnal-vibe than traditional summer offerings. For long-time fans, there are plenty of shades in the palette reminiscent from past releases, but for those who haven’t indulged in lots of Urban Decay, it’s a beautiful palette that’s high-quality, easy to use, and versatile. It leaned slightly more shimmery, but there were enough mattes and near-mattes that I didn’t struggle to create looks with the palette. The price point is in a sweet spot (for those who buy mid- and high-end) with lots of variety and a decent pan size (0.02 oz. each) with a slim design (though it’s definitely a larger palette in terms of width) that should be travel-friendly. The only downside was I wish the mirror/lid stayed up on its own.

Gemini

Melt Cosmetics Gemini 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring shades of brown and green with eight mattes and two shimmers. The palette was good overall except Gemini, a sparkly copper, was terrible, which really brought down the overall score of the palette–from ~91% to ~87%. Having tried some of the brand’s shimmer/metallic shades in their other offerings, I have no idea what went wrong, and it’s not like a sparkly/metallic copper is difficult to do as dupes abound. I hope the brand will reconsider bringing it back or perhaps offering the palette in two stacks (I feel the palette divides pretty nicely into two stacks of five), though the green-half is definitely the less dupable side.
