Altitude

Lethal Cosmetics Altitude Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a very light, purple-blue with cool undertones anda matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that adhered well to bare skin–for a pastel, it had very minimal fallout and actually maintained its intensity when applied and blended out, which is why it ended up being quite buildable.

I would recommend using a primer just to get that extra pop! from the color, though. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "extreme pigmentation" and "effortless blendability" ... "that [will] last all day." There are two primary finishes: mattes and metallics, and the latter can also be used wet.

The matte finish has semi-opaque to opaque color coverage with moderate powderiness; it's a formula that is best used with a lighter hand. There was light fallout with some shades, though not at all, and they were blendable for the most part. Even with a light hand, there was still a bit of powderiness present--the brand did warn about using less with their formula--in the pan.

There were a few darker shades that had a tendency to sheer out when applied or did not apply as evenly, especially when layered over a lighter shade but most of the mid-tone and lighter shades were easy to apply and blend out. As a result, I found myself having better results by going dark to light rather than light to dark (which is more in line with how I typically work).

The metallic finish ranged from creamier, denser, and a bit thicker to softer, dense but still a little powdery (usually the lighter, more white-based shades). They were mostly opaque to fully opaque in a single layer, so they didn't need to be applied with a wet brush to achieve coverage or adhesion. I found that some of the more powdery, shimmery shades were more flattering on the lid when used with a fingertip or a dampened brush, though.

The matte eyeshadows tended to wear around eight hours on me before fading, while the shimmer shades lasted eight to eight and a half hours on me.

Celestial

Lethal Cosmetics Celestial Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, greenish-white with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer–or it reached full coverage immediately if applied with a fingertip.

The texture was moderately dense but not too thick, so it wasn’t difficult to pick up or to apply with a dry brush. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Mirage

Lethal Cosmetics Mirage Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark aqua with subtle, cool undertones and warmer, golden shimmer. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well, though it definitely applied more smoothly wit a fingertip or a dampened brush. The texture was dense, lightly creamy, and a bit thicker than other shades. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Surge

Lethal Cosmetics Surge Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a vivid, medium blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was fantastic and just had to be built up with less than half of a layer for full intensity during application as it sheered out slightly.

The texture was smooth, velvety, and dense without being too heavy or too powdery in the pan. There were signs of wear after eight hours.

Yonder

Lethal Cosmetics Yonder Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark aqua with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. The texture was slightly powdery in the pan, so you’ll want to make sure to tap off the excess to avoid fallout potential. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Eden

Lethal Cosmetics Eden Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, while the texture was smooth, soft, and not too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it easy to pick up and to blend out without getting fallout. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

This brand is doing the notoriously difficult pastel shades well, particularly the mattes. I do love Mirage – a gorgeous minty/aqua tone perfect for summer.
