Ceres

Lethal Cosmetics Ceres Pressed Multichrome Shadow ($16.50 for 0.056 oz.) has a translucent base, as marketed, chocked full of multichrome sparkle that shifted from warm lavender to cooler lavender to pale blue. It had a shinier, lightly sparkling finish without feeling chunky or being prone to fallout during application with a dry brush as the texture was lightly emollient and not too thin. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

$16.50/0.056 oz. - $294.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "amazing pigmentation and easy blendability" that won't crease or fade. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade as some were intentionally designed with translucent bases, so those were often sheerer initially and tended to use larger, more sparkly particles.

In general, the multichrome shifts were weaker and less apparent as many shades were pearl-like in their sheen, rather than ultra-shiny or intensely metallic as is more typical of multichrome eyeshadow releases. I think those who prefer a subtler sheen and aren't locked in to having the most magical of multichrome shifting formulas will find this a nice option. On the flip side, anyone who already has multichrome eyeshadows from other brands and prefers intensity will likely find these to miss the mark.

Most shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation with fairly blendable formulas that weren't too powdery or too firmly-pressed into their pans, though they were sometimes a little too emollient or too thin. They wore around eight hours on average.

Parallax

Lethal Cosmetics Parallax Pressed Multichrome Shadow ($16.50 for 0.056 oz.) has a transparent base with sparkling, multichrome shimmer that shifted from greenish-gold to chartreuse to aqua to lavender. As noted by the brand, the “translucent base” was intentional, so the sheerness was expected. The texture was lightly emollient, which helped minimize the fallout, but I had light fallout when blending out the shade as it didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. I’d recommend using this with a primer or a tacky base. This shade stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Genesis

Lethal Cosmetics Genesis Pressed Multichrome Shadow ($16.50 for 0.056 oz.) is a pearly, multichrome shimmer that shifted from lavender-gray to bluish-aqua to pale green to chartreuse. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff paired with a smooth, moderately-dense texture that wasn’t overly thick, so it sat well on bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Genesis looks really interesting and unusual. Out of the three that one would be worth collecting. The other shades are beautiful too, but I think they’re more accessible here in the US without paying the shipping from Germany (? I *think* that’s where they’re located?).
