Daphne No. 2

NABLA Cosmetics Daphne No. 2 Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium plum with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich color coverage paired with a smooth, moderately dense texture that was lightly creamy and blendable on my skin. The color adhered evenly to bare skin and lasted for just over 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.

NABLA Cosmetics Snowberry Satin Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with even application. The consistency was soft, a smidgen powdery but quite blendable and not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application. It lasted just over eight hours on me.

Unrestricted

NABLA Cosmetics Unrestricted Just Pearl Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, reddish-plum base with a green-to-gold shifting pearl. It was one of the more unique shades I’ve come across lately and within the Nabla range. It had rich color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin, while the texture was dense, lightly creamy, and blendable. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours before I noticed slight fading.

NABLA Cosmetics Danae Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had good pigmentation both wet and dry, though dampened application helped the product bind better and minimized initial fallout. The texture was denser, lightly emollient, and thinner. It applied fairly easily to bare skin but had some fallout if I applied it dry, and regardless, there was some fallout over the eight hours it wore for.

Water Dream

NABLA Cosmetics Water Dream Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had sheer coverage applied dry and mostly opaque coverage applied wet. The texture was denser but thinner with some noticeable grit/texture from the amount of sparkle in it. I would not use this dry without a tacky base underneath as the fallout was tremendous and caused my eyes to water until I removed it. I had better wear when I just used it with a dampened brush and applied it to my lower lash line to avoid having fallout that caused watery eyes (so I could at least test for longevity). It lasted for seven hours but had moderate fallout over time (even applied with a dampened brush).

Looking at the initial pics, I was sure I was gonna be all over Snowberry! And then I saw the swatch for Unrestricted and was all “Snowberry who?” 😉

Absolutely need Unrestricted for what I’m thinking could be a perfect (almost) one ‘n done eyeshadow look! This shade is so different, and I have a feeling that it would bring out my eye color(s) nicely, too!
