Boat Lyfe

Boat Lyfe is a light-medium pink base with subtle, warm undertones paired with duochrome shimmer that shifted from pale gold to greenish-gold and had a metallic sheen.

  • Opaque pigmentation
  • Smooth, moderately emollient consistency without being too dense
  • Picked up readily with dry brush, blended out well
  • Long-wearing (eight hours is typical of this formula)

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. - $90.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours.

The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

I just get weak when I see colors like Boat Lyfe. I have Nars Melrose which is close but I’m liking Boat a little more from your swatch. I use Melrose as a highlighter not an eyeshadow. Really pretty. Wish it were a single.
