Nereide

NABLA Cosmetics Nereide Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had sheer coverage applied dry and more opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush, but the texture became extremely stiff and harder to work with after one use (that’s why there are multiple swatches!). I really had to jab at the pan’s surface for subsequent use, and it did not apply as evenly or stay on the lid as well as it could have. I had fallout while wearing it, and I tried wearing this shade twice, but it caused enough fallout that my eyes were stinging/burning and watering nonstop (something I noticed with a few of the Top Coat shades, so I might be sensitive to something in them). I could not wear this in its entirety for longevity, but based on other shades, I expect the base shade to last around seven hours but it had quite a bit of fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.09 oz. - $133.33 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!

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.

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.

Radikal

NABLA Cosmetics Radikal Super Matte Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, olive green with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety consistency that was more substantial than their other mattes, so it had better opacity and adhesion to bare skin and did not require primer. It blended out easily and lasted well for eight hours on me.

On the Road

NABLA Cosmetics On the Road Satin Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, medium brown with warm, red undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly on my bare skin. The consitsency was soft, moderately dense but not stiff, and blendable on my lid. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before it started to fade noticeably.

Ludwig

NABLA Cosmetics Ludwig Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, reddish brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had rich color coverage with a smooth, dense texture that was applied best with a flatter brush and pressed onto the lid for even, opaque coverage. It took a bit more effort to diffuse and blend out the color. The eyeshadow lasted nicely for eight hours before I noticed signs of it wearing away.

Juno Moon

NABLA Cosmetics Juno Moon Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium plum with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff that was buildable to opaque pigmentation with a second layer. The eyeshadow had a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan, so it wasn’t a challenge to work with. It stayed on for eight hours well before there was any noticeable fading.

On The Road looks amazing! Such a rich shade of warm chocolate brown! It made it onto my WL, obviously. 😉

Nereide *looks* gorgeous, but I can probably find something around here that can get me close to how it looks. If not, then I can get CP’s I Heart This and use it with “3”.

These are lovely shades, but I was really disappointed in the grey shade being so poorly done. It would have been a beautiful pewter colour otherwise.

What a shame about Nereide…looks so lovely in the pan and looked so promising. And even though I tend to stay away from red-toned plum shades, Juno Moon looks so pretty.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
