Quiet Revolution (312)

Chanel Quiet Revolution (312) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent smoky color combination featuring a cool mauve, deep blue-teal, bright blue, and cooler taupe/neutral gray. I found that using the shades together resulted in a rather muddy look, and I had some trouble applying the deeper taupe shade over other shades as it caused the others to lift and resulted in a patchy appearance.

Clair-Obscur (308)

Chanel Clair-Obscur (308) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent all-matte neutral palette featuring a light beige, soft taupe, mid-tone brown, and deep brown. All four shades were more subdued, though they were a little warmer, but I could see them leaning slightly more neutral on cooler complexions. They had good to opaque color payoff and were blendable but could benefit from a primer for improved coverage and longevity.

Moroccan Spice

Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.47 oz.) is a new, 16-pan palette that features an array of shimmers and mattes with pops of color and warmer neutrals. Per the brand, they are “richly-pigmented” and have a “rich, velvety-smooth” texture that “stays put without creasing.” At some point, the brand mentions “rich, velvety-smooth” and “buildable” in the same sentence, but they show opaque swatches and refer to high pigmentation at least twice in their spiel, along with the eyeshadow being long-wearing (without mention of the newly-released eyeshadow primer, except under “how to”).

I didn’t find that the formula was impressive; they used a much drier formula that resulted in sheerer coverage, dusty shades that tend to sheer out or look more faded/muted on the lid, particularly with the shimmer shades. I tried some of the shimmers with a dampened brush, which helped initial application, but they still lost vibrancy and shine. I also found that the matte shades were similar enough to each other that they tended to muddy when I worked with them–I think they needed to have more variety in depth.

They are better over primer, and they are definitely better over the brand’s own primer (which I haven’t tested thoroughly, so I can’t weigh in on that in-depth), but the brand’s primer has quite a bit of tackiness, which made the mattes harder to blend and get really diffused gradients from what I’ve tried over it thus far.

Twenty Seven

Melt Cosmetics Twenty Seven 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, limited edition warm-toned palette with eight mattes and two sparkly shades. The mattes were quite nice–pigmented, blendable, long-wearing–but the two shimmers left something to be desired. The worst part is just that the shimmer shades are not particularly unique or different and yet so disappointing compared to the numerous dupes available. Shimmery golds, bronzes, and coppers seem like shades that any brand at any price point can push out good variations of… and yet Melt manages to disappoint with them.

Sol

Colour Pop Sol 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is the brand’s newest release for summer that features nine vibrant, warm-toned hues across matte and shimmery finishes. Notably, three of the shades are Pressed Pigments, which is your tip off that they are not safe for eye usage. It’s a deeper, richer, and more red/coral-toned take compared to Yes, Please (see a comparison between Sol and Yes, Please here). The palette was full of pigmented, long-wearing, and easy-to-use eyeshadows; no complaints here with respect to quality. Whether this one captures your heart is really a matter of how deep your stash is at this point given the numerous warmer palettes we’ve seen over the last few years, but if you haven’t yet dipped your toes in, this might be a fun one to play with (assuming the Pressed Pigment warning doesn’t bother you).

Dreamy

NABLA Cosmetics Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a warmer-toned, neutral palette with pops of purple and berry. It’s not quite as orange or yellow-toned as some neutral palettes as it leans more pink/coral to my eye. Most of the shades were quite good, and when working with the palette as a whole, I didn’t have any trouble; in fact, it was easy to use and came together well on the eye.
