Moroccan Spice

Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.47 oz.) is a new, 16-pan palette that features an array of shimmers and mattes with pops of color and warmer neutrals. Per the brand, they are “richly-pigmented” and have a “rich, velvety-smooth” texture that “stays put without creasing.” At some point, the brand mentions “rich, velvety-smooth” and “buildable” in the same sentence, but they show opaque swatches and refer to high pigmentation at least twice in their spiel, along with the eyeshadow being long-wearing (without mention of the newly-released eyeshadow primer, except under “how to”).

I didn’t find that the formula was impressive; they used a much drier formula that resulted in sheerer coverage, dusty shades that tend to sheer out or look more faded/muted on the lid, particularly with the shimmer shades. I tried some of the shimmers with a dampened brush, which helped initial application, but they still lost vibrancy and shine. I also found that the matte shades were similar enough to each other that they tended to muddy when I worked with them–I think they needed to have more variety in depth.

They are better over primer, and they are definitely better over the brand’s own primer (which I haven’t tested thoroughly, so I can’t weigh in on that in-depth), but the brand’s primer has quite a bit of tackiness, which made the mattes harder to blend and get really diffused gradients from what I’ve tried over it thus far.

Mo'rockin Ice

Mo’rockin Ice is a light, lavender-tinted white with cool undertones and a sparkling finish. There was a subtle pink-to-violet shift, but it was just hard to see due to the stronger white base. The consistency was drier and did not apply as well to bare skin as I would have expected for this type of shade. It started to fade on me after I wore it for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Dimethicone, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Triethylhexanoin, Isododecane, Polyethylene, Magnesium Myristate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Tin Oxide, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Alumina, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499, Ci 77491).

Mirage

Mirage is a soft copper with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a drier texture and more medium-to-buidlable coverage that was harder to work with as most of the shimmer came through but not much of the base color. This shade stayed on well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Isododecane, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Talc, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Mica, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163).

Ca$ablanca

Ca$ablanca is a golden copper with a stronger, copper base with lighter gold and flecks of green-gold sparkles throughout. It had sheer coverage due to the drier, more loosely-pressed texture that just did not want to adhere to well to my skin. I tried with my typical primer (Smashbox 24HR), and it was marginally improved. It did improve a bit more noticeably over the brand’s new eyeshadow primer but wasn’t a magical savior by any means. I packed on three or so layers to get visible impact on my lid. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading and had some fallout over time.

Ingredients

Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dimethicone, Isododecane, Talc, Mica, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Silica, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163).

Marrakush

Marrakush is a medium gold with cooler undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had an incredibly soft, almost more like a loosely pressed powder, that had excellent color coverage that adhered beautifully to bare skin. The eyeshadow applied better than any of the other shimmer shades in the palette. It stayed on well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Isododecane, Talc, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Mica, Silica, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Aluminum Powder (Ci 77000), Bronze Powder (Ci 77400), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163).

Shisha Smoke is a medium-dark gray with cool, purplish undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, dusty texture that was prone to sheering out and was harder to apply evenly. The color started to fade on me after seven hours of wear.

Sahara Stunna

Sahara Stunna is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a golden sheen. It had good pigmentation, but it was really hard to get this shade to show up as shiny as it initially appeared swatched–it just faded within a few minutes to a duller finish. The texture was soft, a touch dry, but it was blendable and easy enough to work with. On me, it lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Isododecane, Mica, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Talc, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyethylene, Cetyl Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Carmine (Ci 75470).

Quicksand

Quicksand is a medium coral with strong, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color payoff that applied well to bare skin, and the more I blended this shade, the more I could see it had a subtle, golden sheen. It was slightly dusty in the pan but didn’t require primer to function well. This shade stayed on for just over seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Desert Baked

Desert Baked is a light-medium brown with warm, golden shimmer and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was soft and velvety but a touch drier. This was one of the better shimmers in the palette, though I felt like by the time I had applied it and blended the color out, it looked more like a satin than a frost. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Evil Genie

Evil Genie is a bright, medium blue with “warmer” undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, but it was hard to blend out due to the amount of silicone in it, which gave the eyeshadow a lot of slip on the lid and caused it to apply patchily. The texture was quite dense and needed a heavy-handed approach to get product onto a brush. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Triethylhexanoin, Isododecane, Polyethylene, Magnesium Myristate, Phenoxyethanol, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Alumina, Silica, Tin Oxide, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Ferric Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510), Chromium Oxide Greens (Ci 77288), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499, Ci 77491).

Fez Up

Fez Up is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was the smallest amount of micro-shimmer strewn throughout the shade, but practically speaking, I couldn’t detect shimmer in person. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, dusty texture that was a bit prone to sheering out, but I was able to eventually get higher coverage with two to three layers. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Saffron is a slightly muted, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish–I could detect faint shimmer in it but not once it was on my lid/at a normal distance. The texture was drier but blendable, and it wasn’t grainy as some red shades can feel. It wore nicely for eight hours on me.

Souq It 2 Me

Souq It 2 Me is a blackened teal with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and almost cream-like without being too dense (like Evil Genie). It applied evenly to bare skin, but it did seem to have the same issue I had with others shimmers in that it lost a lot of shine after a few minutes of sitting on my lid.

Ingredients

Nuts N Dates

Nuts N Dates is a deep plum with warm, brown undertones and a satin sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin, but the majority of the shine/shimmer seemed to disappear as soon as I started to blend out the edges. Within a few minutes, it really looked semi-matte. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Henna Sea is a medium-dark taupe with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a drier, dustier texture that was more prone to sheering out on my lid and had slight fallout during application. This shade needed a primer, which at least helped it adhere better in the first layer. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours before I noticed any fading.

Spice Trip

Spice Trip is a medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was faint shimmer in the pan and in the swatch, but the performance on the eye was of a matte eyeshadow. It had a soft, drier texture that was dusty in the pan, but it adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely (without losing its intensity) with nearly opaque coverage in a single layer. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading.
