Dreamer

NABLA Cosmetics Dreamer Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pewter with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation, but the texture was a bit firmer and thinner, which I felt made it a little harder to pick up evenly with a brush. It blended out just fine, so I’d recommend using a heavier hand with it or an eyeshadow primer underneath to ensure opacity and good adhesion. It wore well for seven and a half 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.

Aurum

NABLA Cosmetics Aurum Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, light-medium green with warm, golden undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, moderately dense texture that was fairly blendable, but I felt like the shimmer seemed to diffuse and appear less frosted and more satin as I blended it out unless I used an eyeshadow primer or used it with a dampened brush. The color itself blended out nicely along the edges and stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Absinthe

NABLA Cosmetics Absinthe Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, plummy brown base with blue-to-teal shifting pearl. It had good pigmentation, but I didn’t get the same, intense shift that the brand showed on their own website, even when I tried applying it heavily or with a dampened brush. The shift was subtle, but the pearly sheen made it appear different compared to a lot of similar shades in the same hue (most of those are metallic or sparkly). It lasted well for eight hours on me.

Babylon

NABLA Cosmetics Babylon Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a faded, medium-dark teal with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was denser and stiffer, almost dry to the touch (but not dusty/powdery)–I might describe it more like a slightly dried out cream eyeshadow. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but appeared lighter than the pan color, and it had a tendency to fade within seven hours of wear on me.

Caramel

NABLA Cosmetics Caramel Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation–which I think can totally work, particularly for anyone who tends to work in layers–so I wish the brand (and other brands!) would embrace buildable pigmentation in some instances. The texture was soft, a smidgen dry, but it was easy to work with and blended out nicely on my lid. The color lasted well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

NABLA Cosmetics Luna Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft beige with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

What a stunning array of shades of green – just love them all. It’s a shame that the teal shade was of poorer quality though. I particularly like the sage and pweter shades the best.
Beautiful eye look Christine.

Luna and Absinthe could possibly work out nicely for me. Absinthe because it has a softer sheen to its duochrome, which would be kinder on my older lids. Luna as a perfect inner corner highlight!
Too bad that Babylon didn’t work out. It is just about the same color as my eyes, though!
