Smoke Show

Coloured Raine Smoke Show Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains four warm-toned neutrals, a deep green, and a shimmering black. Five of the six shades are mattes, while the one shimmer was extremely difficult to pair with the mattes as it was much thicker, stiffer, and drier (despite feeling more like a cream in the pan). Everything seemed to be coming together decently until I added Smoke Screen to the outer lid, and it was a disaster–and it would not blend or diffuse out. I was so disappointed that it wasn’t better–I expected so much more based on the Coloured Raine single eyeshadows I’ve tried as well as their Queen of Hearts palette (which was one of the best palettes released in ’16).

Cloudy

Cloudy is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery texture, so I’d advise tapping away excess and possibly applying this before any deeper shades, as there was fallout (even when I tried to minimize it). It wore well for seven hours on me.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.064 oz. - $109.22 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "highly pigmented, long-lasting, and blendable" and come in a variety of finishes. Most their eyeshadows are semi-opaque to opaque with a smooth, blendable textures that are easy to use and apply well to bare skin. The shimmers are slightly dense and creamier to the touch compared to the mattes, which aren't thin but don't have the same amount of slip. They tend to wear between eight and nine hours on me.

Naked Eye

Naked Eye is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was quite dusty and was harder to apply to bare skin; it needed a primer for decent adhesion (otherwise, there was just so much that ended up below the lid). It had good pigmentation that stayed on well for seven hours.

Smoke Screen

Smoke Screen is a deep black with neutral-to-warm undertones and flecks of larger micro-glitter. It was extremely dense and felt more like a cream by touch, but it was difficult to blend out without the edges looking ragged and dry. When I tried to blend and move the product on my lid, it had a tendency to skip, and it seemed to get stiffer when pulled over any of the mattes (almost as if whatever slip was left was eradicated by the powderiness of the matte formula in the palette). It started to crease on me after seven hours of wear.

Torch

Torch is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. The texture was grainy and powdery, which resulted in a thinner feel that applied unevenly to the lid. It took a lot of blending and diffusing with the lighter shades in the palette to correct the unevenness. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Flammable

Flammable is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff with a soft, fairly blendable texture that wasn’t too soft nor was it too firm in the pan. The color started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.

Showtime

Showtime is a muted, dark green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, slightly dry to the touch, but it was fairly blendable on the lid. It was not the easiest matte I have worked with, but it was not the stiffest either. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

With my makeup skills, this palette looks like a recipe for mud!!

And it seems pretty expensive. For only $6 more, I’d much rather have the ABH Subculture palette to get these types of shades.

Weird that there’s just one shimmer thrown in there, and that it’s the black to boot. I really like these colors but I can dupe them all even within my singles.

This reminds me a bit of the Smasbox Smoky Covershot palette,except that is a really good one…similar vibes but the quality of the one above is pretty dismal.

What a huge letdown this palette worked out to be. I really loved the color combo, too. Could’ve made for an earthy 90’s grunge eye look like I used to do on the regular back then.

I had my finger on the trigger for a couple of these CR minis. I thought it would be a good way to try the brand (reviewed to raves by Christine). I had no idea Temptalia would review these, and I’m super glad I’m insanely busy at work. Didn’t have a chance to order, and now I saved myself the disappointment. These are a train wreck.

Not sure if it would rate the same, but I swatched and tried the Huda mini in Sephora last week. Again, the full size seems to stand up. The mini was just awful, IMO (at least the one I tried).

Aww wow how dismal!! I’m glad I waited on these palettes! Hopefully Coloured Raine takes these reviews to heart and gives us more Queen of Hearts quality!

Like you, Christine, I am insanely disappointed in these mini palettes. I have several individual CR shades and The Queen of Hearts palette and love them all. I have rarely seen so many truly beautiful shadows together in one palette as those in Q of H. I am so thankful I have placed myself on a low buy for the holidays or I would have picked these up in a heartbeat. Beyond disappointed.

Wow. I’m quite surprised at the experience you’ve had. Again this one was my second favorite. It blends effortlessly for me. Showtime being my absolute favorite. It almost applies looking wet. I adore these minis from Coloured Raine. Sorry you’ve had a negative experience v
