Identity Two

Persona Identity Two Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.48 oz.) is the brand’s second palette, which features a deeper color story with a mix of mattes (five shades) and shimmers (seven shades). The shimmers were lovely; pigmented, smooth and blendable, and easy to work with. The mattes were softer and a little powdery, so there was a bit of fallout with them, but they were pigmented and blendable.

Honest

Honest is a pale beige with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic finish. I found that it swatched wildly different than it appeared in the pan; it was so much deeper and darker in the pan that it really threw me when I went to use it! The texture was soft, a smidgen dusty but not prone to fallout, and remained blendable when applied to bare skin. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Kind

Kind is a light-medium beige with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that didn’t build up much beyond that as it was on the more powdery side. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery texture that had a touch of fallout during application. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Loyal

Loyal is a light, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in one layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, so there was a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful during application. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Independent

Independent is a light-medium, bluish-gray with strong, cool undertones and fine pinkish pearl throughout. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being thick or too stiff in the pan, and blendable on my skin. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Unique

Unique is a bright, sunshine yellow-leaning gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in one pass, which was easy to pick up with a brush as the texture wasn’t too firmly nor too loosely pressed in the pan. It applied evenly, blended out without difficulty, and stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Driven

Driven is a rich, emerald green with neutral-to-warm undertones and cooler, emerald green shimmer that gave it a more pearl-like finish. The texture was soft and smooth to the touch without being powdery, and the color adhered evenly and “melted” onto my lid for a seamless look. It had opaque pigmentation that wore beautifully for eight and a half hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Empowered is a light-medium red with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly on my skin and blended out well along the edges. The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly creamy so it wasn’t powdery at all but still picked up easily with my brush. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Brave

Brave is a deep brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky texture that was a smidgen dusty in the pan but didn’t prove to result in fallout during application. I noticed that it seemed prone to deepening slightly when applied to bare skin, and it wasn’t as blendable as it could have been, though certainly workable. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Limitless

Limitless is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The consistency was more velvety, almost cream-like in that way, despite being a little thinner overall. The eyeshadow blended out nicely and wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Pass for me. The quality is there but I haven’t been into deeper shades lately. I know where to turn to for a jeweled toned smokey palette though.

This is more interesting than I thought it would be. I like it much better than the first one. I love Independent and Driven shades, but it looks like I have a couple dupes for each.

I was going to make a snarky comment about how the one called “Honest” is completely different from how it appears initially, and the one called “Unique” has a full page of 90-95% dupes … but I resisted. 😉

In all seriousness, it makes sense that Honest is in the upper leftmost slot, since that’s where a lot of palettes put the lightest color, and it turned out to be that. And given the way the rest of the palette reads, I think it needed that super highlight shade more than it needed a mid-tone peach. In my mind, if I picture the Honest swatch color in that upper left pan, the whole palette reads much better to me.

Interesting how if the template is not followed, it gets noticed and throws us off. If the light/browbone is not in upper left, it’s like reading a language that is written right to left. I think that is why random placement can be confusing to many, and why the YTer who rearranges palettes is so popular. Many ‘random’ palettes require flexible thinking, which is not easy for all. Obvious layouts in bigger palettes, that can immediately be read as trios or quads, give a far greater comfort level.

So terribly pretty and with a deeper, more mysterious vibe! I am very tempted to get it, but I have to try to stop myself. After all, I’m sure this one will be around for a bit, so there’s more time to talk myself out of it. Maybe.

This is a really good palette for those loving the jewel shades and don’t have any/many in their stash. I love Independent (quite an unusual shade that is flattering to cool toned lovers), Driven and Resilient. Unfortunately I do have lots of dupes for these (except Independent).
Stunning eye look Christine, you really know how to get the most out of a palette.

With autumn approaching (YES! My favourite season!), this has a lot of appeal. Some beautiful, rich shades here and only one (Unique) that I probably wouldn’t wear too much. And I just have to say that I’m LOVING the positive names of the shades.

I am not familiar with this brand, but this is a really nice palette. I’m especially drawn to Independent because I don’t have anything like it. I can probably dupe the rest of the shades, so I need to resist. I’m also liking the very positive shade names. But it’s funny how a shade called Honest is so deceptive when you look at it in the pan! 🙂

This is a lovely palette. So glad to see that Persona is maintaining their quality. I also appreciate that that is important and they aren’t throwing out palettes left and right with poor quality. I will likely pick this up at some point but it isn’t a necessity right now.

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!
