Galaxy

Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.56 oz.) contains 14 glittering eyeshadows housed in a sleek, multi-chrome compact. (The only downside is the compact attracts fingerprints like crazy!) Fenty says that the palette contains a mix of “sheer, glittering topcoats” and “smoky, shimmer-drenched hues.” When it comes to application advise, the brand says to “wear eye shadows solo for a sheer-to-smoky multidimensional effect” or to “layer topcoats over any eye shadow.” The “pro tip” is to “wet your brush” if you want a “more intense look.”

Here’s the crux of the problem: this is a drier, powder-based glitter eyeshadow formulation, and since there’s no real revolutionary technology behind the formula… guess what? They don’t work very well dry, while some shades are more workable with a dampened brush and others need to be layered over a creamy or tacky base. I felt that there were some eyeshadows that had little fallout (especially when you take into account how much glitter they had!) when applied with a dampened brush, but in general, I would recommend using something like MAC Fix+ (not quite as strong as a true glitter adhesive but worked well for getting smoother application and minimizing fallout over time with this formula) or a glitter adhesive for anyone wanting to encrust their lids with sparkles.

What I would have preferred to see from the brand was releasing a glitter adhesive/base as a companion to the palette, whether that was including a sample size with the palette and having a full-sized version available for purchase. Per the brand, the following shades were intentionally made sheer: Oh-Zone, Sublime, Cosmic Ocean, Meteor Crush, and Mars on Fire. All swatches are shown dry (left) and damp with just water (right). I tested all shades dry, dampened with pure water, and applied using a dampened brush with MAC Fix+ (light adhesive), but for the purposes of rating the palette, only the first two methods were included in longevity ratings.

This palette will work best for someone looking for glittering accent eyeshadows to incorporate into their looks. It’s less of a cohesive/all-in-one palette since all of the eyeshadows are quite glittery and there aren’t too many deeper, more contrasting shades. If you’re someone who doesn’t like to pull out multiple palettes to use together, then think carefully whether you’d go the extra step for this one. I also think that only those willing to use fingertips, adhesive bases, or the like will find this most satisfying. If you were looking for a glitter eyeshadow that could be applied on its own without any aids, you’ll be disappointed by the formula.

Xtra Terrestrial

Xtra Terrestrial is a deep green with warm, olive undertones and lighter green and emerald green shimmer and sparkle. It had rich color coverage in a single layer regardless of application method, and it seemed just about as sparkly either way, too. The texture was smoother, though I could feel the heavy amount of shimmer/sparkle in it, and was blendable on the lid. The eyeshadow lasted for eight hours on me with minor fallout applied dry and no fallout when applied with a dampened brush or using Fix+.

Lightyear

Lightyear is a blackened brown with warm, olive undertones and large copper and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage applied dry and opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The texture was drier and chunkier, which made it harder to apply with brushes or an adhesive base. Fingertips worked well for patting and pushing the glitters into place. It wore well for eight hours, but the dry application had significant fallout over time, while the dampened application had some and Fix+ application had a minor amount.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate, Isododecane, Mica, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Talc, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Water, Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Carmine (Ci 75470), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77499).

Planet Ex

Planet Ex is a dark brown with warm, red undertones and a glittery finish. It had opaque coverage both wet and dry with the dampened application yielding a richer color and a more metallic finish. The texture was slightly loose and a bit dry, but it was blendable and usable on its own. Applied dry, it had some fallout after eight hours, while applied with a dampened brush (just using water), it had very little fallout.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Isododecane, Talc, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Mica, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Water, Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77499).

Oh-Zone

Oh-Zone is a stark, white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a chunky, glittery finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, as described, when applied dry. It had good color payoff applied damp, though it wasn’t opaque, which was partially due to the chunky texture that was hard to apply evenly. The eyeshadow lasted for eight hours with heavy fallout dry, some fallout applied with a dampened brush, and minimal fallout applied with an adhesive base (Fix+).

Ultraviolit

Ultraviolit is a deep plum with warm undertones and multi-colored glitter. It had opaque color payoff both wet and dry with the damp application yielding a more sparkly, smoother finish. The eyeshadow applied nicely to bare skin and was one of the easier shades to use on its own, as the base color showed up and the sparkle wasn’t quite as chunky. It wore well for eight hours on me with minor fallout dry, almost no fallout when applied with a dampened brush, and no fallout when used with an adhesive base (Fix+).

Sublime

Sublime is a light green with warm undertones and copper, green, and gold glitter. The texture was loose, dry, and chunky, which made it difficult to work with dry as it had a ton of fallout during application and little stuck to the lid. It was a shade I felt had to be used with at least a dampened brush or otherwise applied over a tacky base. It had semi-sheer coverage dry and nearly opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. There was not much base color to this one, so there was a ton of fallout when worn dry, some fallout when worn with a dampened brush, and almost none when used with an adhesive base.

Milky Way

Milky Way is a very light, creamy gold base with flecks of copper micro-glitter. It had semi-sheer pigmentation applied dry, which intensified to opaque coverage when applied damp. There was a base shade to this eyeshadow, so it was somewhat functional dry, but the copper glitter loosely sat on top, so without a dampened application or adhesive base, that glitter was prone to fallout. The base lasted for eight hours and had major fallout dry, slight fallout applied with a dampened brush, and no fallout when applied with an adhesive base.

Cosmic Ocean

Cosmic Ocean is a light blue with a warmer, greenish base and lighter silver and blue glitter. It had sheer coverage, as described, when applied dry. I was able to get more medium coverage and a smoother application with a dampened brush. The consistency was drier, looser, and very messy to use dry as the glitter didn’t really have anything to bind with, so it just dropped when patted onto the lid (even with a fingertip). There was little in the way of sustained wear when applied dry, but it lasted closer to eight hours with some fallout when applied with a dampened brush and then had minimal fallout when used with MAC Fix+.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate, Talc, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Water, Chromium Hydroxide Green (Ci 77289), Green 5 (Ci 61570), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163).

Meteor Crush

Meteor Crush is a brighter, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of large, gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation applied dry, which was in line with the brand’s description, that was buildable to opaque coverage if applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, somewhat dry, but not quite as loose as other sheer shades in the palette. It wore well for eight hours both wet and dry but the amount of fallout was heavy when applied dry compared to minor when applied with a dampened brush.

Dimethicone, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Talc, Isododecane, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Water, Carmine (Ci 75470), Ultramarines (Ci 77007), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163).

Jupiter Sand

Jupiter Sand is a medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and flecks of lavender, greenish-gold, and brown glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage applied dry and had opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. This shade was easier to use as a standalone product as there was a base color that came through, though the sparkles did not adhere that well (most dropped between the brush and the lid) without at least using a dampened brush (with water). It wore well for eight hours both wet and dry but had more minimal fallout when applied with a dampened brush (even with use of Fix+).

Mars on Fire

Mars on Fire is a medium-dark, coppery red with flecks of pink and copper glitter. It had sheer coverage, as described, when applied dry. It intensified to semi-opaque coverage when applied with a wet brush. The texture was drier and looser with less of a base powder and just finer copper shimmer underneath the chunkier sparkle. It had a lot of fallout when worn dry and then light fallout when applied with a dampened brush.

Midnight Bolt

Midnight Bolt is a medium-dark blue with cool undertones and faint flecks of silver sparkle over a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation both wet and dry, though the dry application wasn’t quite as deep nor as metallic compared to the dampened application. This was the least glittery shade in the palette, and it had the firmest texture and wasn’t quite as blendable as the others, though it had a lot less fallout and could be used dry. It wore well for eight hours on me with minor fallout.

Space Owt is a dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, lighter violet and lavender glitter. It had semi-opaque color coverage applied dry and opaque coverage applied damp.

I like most of these colors but I’m not sure I’m willing to deal with the hassle or have such an in-cohesive palette. To the dupes I go! Thank you for reviewing this Christine, you’re doing a great job with the holiday madness ๐Ÿ™‚

Christine, that icy blue eye look is so pretty and wintry!!

Well, these are some pretty dismal ratings, so no temptation here. The only shade that really calls me is Xtra Terrestrial, which is also the only one with an A-range rating, but it’s definitely not worth the whole palette.

Oh man I do NOT need this palette and it looks way too high maintenance for me but I am really disappointed that the dupes available as singles for the two shades I was really into (Lightyear and Ultraviolet) don’t look that dupe-y. This feels so unique.

Do you think this is a good alternative to loose eyeshadow? The looks you have are extremely metallic, they look like stuff from Fyrinnae almost. I have glitter primer and I think this might be a good “to go” version, but you’re the expert haha!

I think that you’ll likely get more color payoff from a loose eyeshadow like Fyrinnae, on average, compared to these. I think if you want more sparkle, then you’ll find these better at that as I’m only aware of Fyrinnae having more shiny (but not glittery) shades.

I am just so not a glitter person so while this is soooo cute, I can’t see myself reaching for multiple palettes. If there is one thing to say about this Galaxy line is, she stuck to the “glittery” claim. You know exactly what you’re getting going in. I like how they acknowledged this as an accessory palette so that it’s clear that this isn’t a full eye look palette.

I wanted to love this. The colors are stunning and I lived for the icy blue. Sadly, I had to return because the fallout, even with glitter glue, was massive. I tried Pixie Epoxy and Too Faced glitter glue and had similar results:-(

Oh, wow! I am surprised to hear you had fallout even with glitter glue ๐Ÿ™ I had so little fallout using Fix+ that I didn’t even feel that TF Glitter Glue was necessary for me ๐Ÿ™

Thank you for the quick review on this palette, Christine. I am not even tempted at this point. I prefer a stand alone palette when possible and although I love me some shimmer and glitter, not when you have to work so hard for it. The cool blue winter eye look is killer though.

Sigh. I played around with this in Sephora and realize that it wasn’t for me. The colors are pretty but it’s way more work than I’m willing to do for payout/

I can understand that, ACP! I think it might have been cool for the brand to do two palettes – so they were smaller and cheaper, since you have to love some glitter to buy a palette with this many and at this price, IMO!

Christine, looking at your swatches and how the glitters show up on your eyes, your grades seem harsh, unfair even. Iโ€™ve seen you give actual eyeshadows (from MAC and other big brands) that performed worst higher grades. I think the challenge was you wanted this palette to be something other than what it was and instead of grading it based upon what it was, you graded it based upon what you thought I should have been; which isnโ€™t fair. Some of those shades, Iโ€™ve never even seen before, because theyโ€™re so unique, so to suggest itโ€™s Dupable is dishonest. Iโ€™m a bit shocked. I always look to you for fair criticism and objectivity.

Hi Sparkle,

The way it looks on the lid is only part of the rating – the performance such as wear, fallout, etc. are all part of the ratings, so just because the end result looks good for a few hours doesn’t mean that it’s an A+ eyeshadow. I don’t test or rate something based on swatches – I test where it’s supposed it to be (eyes) and rate based on overall quality, pigmentation, texture, longevity, and application. I explained the rating criteria I used, where I quoted from the brand’s descriptions – if the palette had stated that it was to be used with a glitter adhesive, it would have scored better since it suffered from lower longevity and application for most shades, but that’s not how the brand advised applying the product. They said alone, pressed over eyeshadow, or wet for a more intense look. I rated performance based on using them dry and using them wet, exactly as the brand recommended.

Could you point out where I said the palette was dupable? I provided similar shades where I found them, as I do for all color cosmetics that I review, and there are shades that are similar, but if you look at the lists, there are certainly shades that are less easily duped and others that have similar shades but are not 100% dupes… just like every other color product I review and pull dupes for. I’m not sure what would make this palette exempt from my process.

You’ve ctiticized many of the things I love about Christine’s reviews.

Reviewing against the claims of the product really tells you what you’re getting. It’s fair to expect a product to match it’s description. Thanks to Christine’s reviews, you know what to expect.

So many reviewers do finger swatches, look at the swatches and review. Almost every shadow looks good as a finger swatch. That’s not how people actually use eyeshadow and tells you nothing about longevity, which really matters. No shadow, no matter how pretty the color, is any good if it disappears after only an hour of wear.

I always appreciate the details and the whys of Christine’s reviews, it allows me to make my own judgements. For example, many of these shadows work better damp. I almost always put my shadow on damp, so that’s not a problem for me. But others may not want to do that, so it’s good for them to know.

I’ve occasionally bought things that didn’t get a great grade from Christine, because the reasons she gave it a low grade don’t bother me (like a need to apply a shadow damp). But I’ve also not bought things based on her reviews, for reasons like lack of longevity. I bought a blush that she gave a low rating. It was supposed to be pigmented, but turned out to be sheer, hence the low rating. Because of her detailed review, I knew that it applied well and lasted. Since I’m very fair skinned, the blush being sheer was a point in its favor for me. But I understand why it got that blush a low rating from her.

Dupes are rarely perfect matches. Christine is the only one I know who tells you how close the dupe is (%) and why it’s different (lighter, warner etc.).

She’s one of few reviewers doing HONEST, detailed revews, rather than loving everything based on a quick swatch. I can do a quick finger swatch in the store, I don’t need a reviewer for that. I need a reviewer to tell me how it actually works when used and she does that.

I am thrilled to hear that you really comb through my reviews and find whether a “con” or a “pro” is a deal-breaker for your particular set of preferences! I think that’s really great. I know for myself that a super bright, pigmented blush is really more work than I want to deal with, so even if it was an A+, I’d be more apt to go for one that was more buildable, so it is awesome to know my reviews are helpful for you ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a really pretty palette in terms of shades but the press pigment vibe I got from these shadows had me worried about their performance.

Much more of eyeshadow and layer on pigment/glitter with a glitter glue girl than potentially wrecking the shadows that are pressed like thick with binders. Glad i have some dupes for Cosmic Ocean, Meteor Crush, & Xtra Terrestrial as those shades did catch my eye.

I don’t know why brands aren’t more forthcoming about glitter adhesive or why they didn’t come out with their own! It helps them!

Having bought it, and not being able to resist dipping into it, I will say that I’ve only used 5 shades so far. Knew going in that I’d only be using these over my trusty Nyx Glitter Primer applied with fingertips, and only as accent shades on my mobile lid and inner corner only. So far, I am liking it! Especially Sublime, as it is such a unique shade that brings out greenish gold band of flecks in my irises. But I cannot emphasize enough: for best results, use a glitter primer and fingertips! This one is branded as accent shades “like jewelry for your eyes”, that’s exactly how I personally use mine.

Sublime and Extra terrestial are my favorites… I’m really tempted by this palette… but I have a fixed budget and Pat McGrath is taking 90% of it…

I knew as soon as I realized that this palette was 100% glitter that it wasn’t for me. It looks like more brands will be releasing glitter palettes in the near future. Yet another trend I won’t be following. Good for my wallet!

This actually reviewed much better than I thought it would, with all that glitter.

Question though: would NYX jumbo pencil in Milk be a sticky enough base for these to work better, or is that not good enough?

I tried it with Nyx Milk and still ended up needing glitter glue to get a good result on my eyes. It does make a super great base color to make the shadows pop though.

I bought this and LOVE it and I never wear glitter . I basically do my normal eye with primer and light neutral shadows and accent with one if these glitters . The colors are beautiful and the Fenty brush I also purchased works wonderfully . One of my best purchases this year .

I picked up this palette and love it, as I had no glitter shades in my collection and, well, I like to sparkle and don’t mind throwing on glitter glue whenever I play with it. ๐Ÿ™‚ It works great as a companion palette for me for inner corner and center lid application. I’ve been using the lightest and darkest shades in Naked Basics for bases for the top coats.

I have to agree that I’m pretty shocked Fenty didn’t come out with a glitter glue for this palette. The only reason I had any hanging around is because a lot of my collection are loose indie eyeshadows, and if I wasn’t used to working with those, I’d be completely lost when it came to getting any results from the Galaxy palette. And unless I’m mistaken, Too Faced’s glitter glue would have been the only option I’d be able to pick up if I was trying to get everything I needed direct from Sephora.

I’m really happy to learn about how good Fix+ works with this. Will need to pick some of that up too. Thanks for the awesomely thorough and helpful review, as always, Temptalia. ๐Ÿ˜€

Fix+ is a fave and staple for me ๐Ÿ™‚

I totally agree – yes, if you’re well-versed in makeup, you might have glitter adhesive already, but I think with how glitter-tastic the palette is that having a coordinating glitter primer/glue would have been killer.

Thank you so much for reviewing so quickly this mammoth palette – especially as it was tricky to work out how to use it best.
I love the shades, but not the finishes. If it had been a more conventional palette with a combination of mattes, satins and shimmers, I think it would have been better – it terms of its practicality of use, versatility of either day/night wear and appeal to all ages.
As a glitter bomb – the palette hasn’t really worked – too difficult to apply and too worrying about if the glitter gets into your eyes.

This pallet was designed to be fun and for people who love to dazzle and love glitter and I’ve noticed allot of people commenting on fallouts but as a makeup artist I never recommend anyone using eyeshadows without a base it just makes no sense reguardles of the texture or finish you always get a better result and longer wear with a base or primer, and no glitter shadow is designed to be worn dry to me it just won’t make sense so to those buying this pallet hoping to just slap it on in a hurry and go just don’t buy it. This pallet is for people who loves makeup artistry and has the time to sit and create a look not the slap and go type of girl. I’ve wanted this pallet from the first time I saw it and got it as a Christmas gift and making magic with it.

Xtra terrestrial is an amazing shade. There should be singles available of some of these. Overall though, I’ll stick to my Moondust palette which i got for $25 during the sale! <3

I picked this up but haven’t used it yet. Even with your comments about needing some work to make the shades work I still have no regrets because the swatches are so lovely. Only regret being this will only be something I can use at home and not when I travel.

I love the colors but to be honest, I would probably only use maybe one or two of the colors and I’m not really a glitter person. I could totally see my BFF getting this palette she is a total glitter girl.

I absolutely love my palette. I was pleasantly surprised to see I could get it to work with just Fix+ and I didn’t have to use a glitter glue if I didn’t feel like it. I generally use it with both a glitter glue and fix+, but I’ve tried it without an adhesive and I’ve been very successful with it.

It’s a fantastic companion piece palette. I definitely think this is one of the more fun holiday releases.

I also don’t think it was necessary to release a glitter adhesive with it, while it would have been a nice option, it definitely would have been overpriced. The Nyx glitter primer is cheap and works great, so I know I wouldn’t have purchased a Fenty glitter primer.

The reason I mentioned I think they should have released one is that it’s even rarer to see a brand tell customers to use a product they don’t make, so I would have rather they released one and marketed it as a companion to the palette and given you the choice of whether you needed it (or wanted it) ๐Ÿ™‚

I am all about the glitter but I own all the Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadows and the Moondust palette and most of the MAC Dazzleshadows.I have watched a lot of YouTube reviews of this and I kept hearing the formula is comparable to the products I just mentioned and that the Moondust is more pigmented and the Dazzleshadows are smoother so I havenโ€™t purchased it yet the VIB sale may be when I pull the trigger.
