Cutting Edge

Dose of Colors Cutting Edge Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a new release that featured three matte eyeshadows and two shimmer eyeshadows. There was a more golden/olive note running through the palette, though there was still a pop of orange-brown. All five shades performed well with the worst “offense” being minor fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and had good longevity without a primer.

Edgy

Edgy is a yellowed, light-medium olive with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. Alternatively, I want to call it a dirty chartreuse with strong warm, yellow undertones. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied smoothly and evenly to bare skin. The texture felt soft and smooth to the touch with light powderiness that was present in the pan but didn’t result in dryness; there was a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Top It Off

Top It Off is a bright, medium gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was lightly creamy, dense but not too thick, and yielded to a dry brush (though a dampened brush or fingertip would certainly amplify the finish!). It had rich color coverage that adhered well to bare skin, though there was a touch of fallout when I blended it out. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Sundown

Sundown is a light-medium brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges. The consistency was soft with light powderiness in the pan, but it didn’t appear dry or dusty on my skin. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Rule Breaker

Rule Breaker is a darker, olive green with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, moderately dense texture that felt more firmly-pressed into the pan than the other shimmer but had no fallout during application–yet I had no trouble picking it up with a dry brush. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Cameo

Cameo is a darker, more muted green with moderate, warm olive undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was lightly powdery but not dry or dusty, so it adhered evenly and wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. The eyeshadow diffused well along the edges and stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

This is my kind of palette — unfortunately it’s so much my kind of palette that I have multiple dupes for every color except the orange. LOL!

If I didn’t already have a plethora of these types of shades, I would absolutely buy this. However, I now feel an itch to use my Coloured Raine Safari Raine palette with some MAC Savant thrown in!

I was hoping these two new palettes performed as good as they looked! I ordered the Vault set since the only one I had of this style from DOC was the mauves palette from a few years ago in the old packaging. Iā€™m so excited for these!

They did! I love the five-pans – compact color stories. I feel like they tell a stronger story and work well to complement what you already have!

I love that this got a good review! Definitely noted as a palette for the future – it really seems to stay true to the hyped up Dose of Colors formula, and the compact assortment of these shades really does intrigue me. Such a nice release from the brand.
