Flame-boyant

MAC Flame-boyant Art Library Palette ($48.00 for 0.6 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral palette with more orange/red undertones to it. It contained five shimmery shades and seven matte shades, and there was a good mix of light, mid-tone, and dark that would make it easy to create a variety of looks.

Some of the mattes were very nice and easy to work with, especially for anyone who prefers to build product or feels like more powdery formulas are too messy to work with. I only had major issues with one of the shimmers–Flame-boyant–which had a chunkier texture and needed to be used with a fingertip/dampened brush. A few of the mattes could have been better but were workable in practice (and looked better in practice than just swatched).

It's Designer

MAC It’s Designer Art Library Palette ($48.00 for 0.60 oz.) contains a mix of brighter mattes and pops of shimmery color along with a medium black. I feel like the palette tells the story of MAC eyeshadows over the last few years. The mattes are firmer, stiffer, and better for building up color but when it comes to deriving really electric color on the lid, they’re not as pigmented as needed to do so–I’d recommend using a tacky primer or white base to help get more oomph out of them (assuming true-to-pan color is the goal). The shimmers were less consistent, but most of them were under-performing due to pigmentation and texture, either being too dry or too emollient. If you’re someone who tends to use dampened brushes with their shimmers, that would help quite a bit and likely give you a better experience working with the palette overall.

Nude Model

MAC Nude Model Art Library Palette ($48.00 for 0.6 oz.) is a new, permanent neutral-hued palette that leans slightly more mauve/plum than overtly warm-toned. Of the three palettes launched in the Art Library collection, this has the most repeated shades (past releases and/or permanent shades). If you feel like a lot of matte eyeshadows are too powdery, you may you enjoy MAC’s formula, which tends to be firmer, a little stiffer and better for gradually building color with little to no fallout. Most of the mattes were blendable, but the darker shades–Sugar Plum and Dance in the Dark–could have been easier to soften along the edges. LES Artiste had some fallout and a tendency to emphasize my lid texture, so I’d recommend using fingertips or a wet brush to apply it, and I felt like Nude Model was overly slippery.

Naked Reloaded

Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest in the Naked series. It’s intended as a replacement of the original Naked palette, which was discontinued a couple of months ago. It’s less of a one-for-one replacement and just another take on neutral shades. It’s a very warm-toned palette with a mix of yellow, pink/red, and orange undertones running through it.

There were two more glittery shades–Angel Fire and Dreamweaver–which were less impressive without an adhesive base or spray to help them along (for pigmentation, application, and longevity). The formula on the palette feels more like Naked Heat and Naked Cherry, which is a bit drier and/or thinner, so they tend to perform noticeably better with primer than alone.

Also, the packaging seems more like a cardboard-like palette that has a fabric covering, but definitely felt less robust than Naked Heat/Naked Cherry (which are plastic) and also doesn’t have a brush; it is $5 cheaper than Naked Cherry. The fabric may get dirty over time and could be hard to clean (hard to say without longer, more regular use!).

P.S. — You can compare this palette to Anastasia Sultry here. Sultry has a few, fairly distinctive shades (Cyborg, Slate, Rose Quartz, Ember, Twig) that end up giving a different look overall, but they have some overlap so if you tend to go warmer anyway (Teak, Dystopian, Birch, Cinder, Steampunk), then your looks may end up looking more similar regardless of the palette. Sultry is going to have more contrast and depth as well.

Steel(etto)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Steel(etto) Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, limited edition cooler-toned palette (!!) that performed well! It has seven shades ranging from beige to inky black with five variations on taupe between the two. The shades coordinated well with each other with a nice mix of depth, though I caution that all but the beige and black hues went on deeper than they looked, so you might want to swatch and play a bit to get a better sense of composition and depth. The mattes were all more substantial, more velvety in feel, which helped them blend and work well with Sparkling, which was very sparkly.

Daytime

Anastasia Daytime Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features four warm-toned shades–gold, yellowy brown, orange, and rose gold. Those who enjoy the typical Anastasia eyeshadow formula should enjoy this quad, especially with primer, but I found the shimmery shades did not perform as well without a dampened brush. The mattes were a little dusty in the pan, but they both blended well and retained their intensity on my skin.
