Mesmerising Maroon #1

Mesmerising Maroon #1 is a light-medium peach with strong, warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense without being too firmly-pressed into the pan nor was it thick when applied to bare skin. The eyeshadow looked almost “melted” once applied to my lid. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Ingredients

MICA, OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE, TALC, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, MAGNESIUM MYRISTATE, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, DIAMOND POWDER, TIN OXIDE, [+/- TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)].

Mesmerising Maroon #2

Mesmerising Maroon #2 is a rich, reddened plum with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture felt smooth, lightly creamy, and remained blendable on my skin. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Mesmerising Maroon #3

Mesmerising Maroon #3 is a light-medium, rosy copper with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was smooth, despite how much sparkle was in it, and it didn’t feel as “wet” as other “Pop” shades have in the past, and it seemed to have a lot more binder and creaminess to it overall. It applied evenly to bare skin with a smidgen of fallout during blending. this shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably and had a touch of fallout over time.

Ingredients

TALC, CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE, DIMETHICONE, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, MICA, ZINC STEARATE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, DIAMOND POWDER, TIN OXIDE, [+/- TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), CARMINE (CI 75470), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007)].

Mesmerising Maroon #4

Mesmerising Maroon #4 is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, velvety, and silky to the touch–it almost felt cream-like for how smooth it was–with a smidgen of dustiness in the pan but not something that impacted the performance. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my lid and blended out with ease. The color wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Ingredients

MICA, TALC, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, POLYMETHYL METHACRYLATE, SILICA, DIMETHICONE, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, HEXYL LAURATE, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ZINC STEARATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, DIAMOND POWDER, [+/- IRON OXIDES (CI 77499), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007), CARMINE (CI 75470), BLUE 1 LAKE (CI 42090)].

Wow, this really brings out the green in your hazel eyes! If it does that for you I can only imagine what it will do with mine. If I got one, I believe this is the one I would get. And that, even though I love the blue one more. This is the one that would be most flattering, though, and see far more usage as a result.

This quad is really, really pretty. I love the rose gold tones with the plum shades and you could easily use these shades with other colours from your stash. Rose gold and emerald green or blue or grey shades. Very pretty and a great rating too.

This is a beautiful quad. I’m really thinking I should get it to as a nyc quarantine treat (although I just bought myself the By Terry Paris by Light Palette which is lovely). Thank you Christine for continuing to provide reviews and posts. It is helped?.

Thanks for your hard work, it helps a lot in these times! This is really pretty, and my eyes are similar to yours… But I already have Charlotte Tilbury Stars in your Eyes palette so I think I can dupe this, mostly with Confident Eyes… What do you think?
