Baltic

NABLA Cosmetics Baltic Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation with a moderately dense, slightly stiffer and thinner texture, so it applied best with a flat, synthetic brush and pushing and pressing it into the skin. It blended out without too much work, but it wasn’t foolproof. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.09 oz. - $88.89 Per Ounce

The brand has a few different powder eyeshadow formulations, and because they don't just differ in finish but in price, they're listed as individual formulas on Temptalia, but for ease, I wanted to keep the same overview available so it's easy to get a big picture overview of their powder eyeshadows generally!

Just Pearl Eyeshadows are supposed to "apply evenly, blend well" with "excellent skin adhesion" and "long-lasting" wear with high pigmentation. These are your m re typical shimmery, powdery eyeshadow formula with light creaminess, moderately dense textures, and are usually quite easy to blend out. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that lasted between seven and eight hours on me. Some shades were very metallic and others were a soft frost.

Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadows are supposed to give a "wet effect" and can be used wet or dry but are suggested to be used by "dabbing them on with your fingers" or "trying it wet." I found that these varied--some were really soft, blendable, and extremely pigmented with more fleck-like sparkle and others were drier and firmer with a thinner texture that was stiffer to work with. Most of them did apply best with fingertips or with a dampened brush over a dry brush. This finish is more interesting than the others, but I'd pay attention to the specific shades as there was some inconsistency. The wear time ranged from six to eight hours and slight to moderate fallout.

Satin Eyeshadows are supposed to have a "gentle sheen" with "the finest pearls" that will have "excellent adhesion" and be "long-lasting." They can also be applied wet or dry, and some shades did apply more smoothly or had better pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush, but the majority were easy to work with dry. The texture was smooth, firm but not too dense, and most shades blended out easily as the formula wasn't stiff to work with. Most shades lasted seven to eight hours.

Super Matte Eyeshadows are "highly pigmented, completely opaque" with a "full, velvety" finish. The Super Mattes have a more finely-milled, velvety, and more substantial texture compared to the brand's Soft Matte eyeshadows, and I also found that they were much more pigmented than the Soft Mattes, too. There was more fallout during application if I wasn't careful due to the Super Matte shades being so pigmented, though. If one prefers building up coverage, the Soft Mattes would be more suitable. The eyeshadows in this finish tended to wear seven to eight hours on me.

Soft Matte Eyeshadows are supposed to give a "soft and delicate" effect while blending "easily." While the brand mentions "soft and delicate," the swatches they provided of the shades in this finish were showing opaque coverage in one layer, so the expectation would be for true, full color coverage, but a lot of the shades in the finish seemed more muted (which could be interpreted as "soft and delciate"). My experience was that the pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque but most shades were buildable, and I felt like buildable, matte eyeshadows are much needed and quite versatile--there's a huge difference in a poorly pigmented eyeshadow and one that can be pigmented, just requiring two layers--the latter gives one a lot of control over how it can appear in a look. The shades in this finish seemed to fade a little faster on me with six to seven hour wear on average.

Under Pressure

NABLA Cosmetics Under Pressure Satin Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium-dark, navy blue with subtle cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the texture was just a bit denser and stiffer than I would have preferred, but I didn’t have to work too much at diffusing the edge, and it didn’t fade to black when blended, which some versions of this shade can. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

Freestyler

NABLA Cosmetics Freestyler Satin Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a pale blue with a golden sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly dusty texture that was a bit thinner but applied better to the lid than I expected based on how it swatched and how it felt to the touch. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Chemical Bond

NABLA Cosmetics Chemical Bond Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, golden taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, soft, and blendable texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan. The color applied evenly and stayed on well for eight hours.

The only shade out of this bunch that’s doing anything for me has got to be Ground State. I’m a sucker for these almost taupey – lavender mauves! Probably already have something around here that may be just close enough, I’m thinking. But, if not…. 😉

Yes, I saw that when I clicked through your links. I don’t want to pay for shipping for just an eyeshadow or two, that’s why I was hoping maybe they’ll get a US presence eventually.

What a beautiful array of shades – it does remind me of a lot of the older bareMinerals shades that were out quite a few years ago. Nabla did nail the navy shades well and they are tricky shades to get right.
Gorgeous eye looks Christine.

Holy gorgeous, or should I have said wholly? This is one of those need none, want all posts! At least the dupes are excellent stash reminders. A ground state type shade is so easily worn that everyone should have one. These give me total grabby mind and hands. The looks are superb.
