Colour Pop Perception 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($23.00 for 0.62 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette, and I thought I’d try to share some possible look ideas with those who want to see how versatile (or not) the palette may be.

The way I’ve tried to create the looks was around the general application of inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease, but they can, of course, be applied in any order or in any placement one desires! I have deliberately stuck to four shades to avoid being overly complicated and also worked from the assumption that these are the “core” shades of a look and that brow bone/transition shades would be brought in based on what would work for your skin tone (as neither are one-size-fits-all).

I hope that this is helpful and that some of the combinations might encourage you to try them with products you already own as well!

Perception

Colour Pop Perception 16-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($23.00 for 0.62 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that contains 16 shades from warm beige to deep burgundy and a mix of finishes from matte to metallic. The quality was good across the board with most shades applying better on the lid than merely swatched (particularly true with the metallics, which I found applied better on the lid as the area was smaller and my natural inclination toward technique was to press and pat on). It’s a versatile palette with some pops of color that integrated well with the other shades in different ways.

MAC Barely Dressed Mineralize Skinfinish ($34.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pale white with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It was comprimsed of four shades–white with pink shift, white with violet shift, white with green-yellow shift, and white with yellow shift–but blended together it just came a warmer white but didn’t really seem to shift.

Each quadrant would be larger enough to get the point of a tapered highlighting brush in if used with great care, but it would be more likely to concentrate a highlighting brush with two or more of the quadrants due to the size. The consistency was smooth, soft, and blendable with just a touch of dustiness in the pan (but it did not appear powdery on my skin). It had opaque pigmentation that was easy to sheer out or to apply with a lighter hand for more adjustable coverage. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.35 oz. - $97.14 Per Ounce

The description has changed over the years--the most current description (as of 4/21/2018) is that it is a "slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish" that can be used to highlight "the high points of the face" or blended "all over for a sheer luminous polish to the skin." The sheerness seems to be more in referenced to the finish than the coverage, as the usage now states to use the product damp for an even stronger sheen.

In general, the Mineralize Skinfinish formula tends to be more metallic to glittery with medium to opaque coverage--it really depends on the shade. The texture of the formula has been refined over the years with current editions being fairly smooth, blendable, and easy to use. The wear has varied from six to eight hours on me with newer shades and variations lasting closer to eight hours on average.

MAC Eyeshadows ($7.00 for 0.05 oz.) come in a slew of neutrals with some pops of color. The range has really changed over time, and as someone who has followed and bought a lot of MAC products for over a decade, it’s incredible to see what shades have been discontinued (and which somehow have clung on for dear life) over the years. I tried to check and verify my picks based on what’s currently available but might have missed a couple (let me know, and I’ll pick an alternate or remove + redo!).
