Hourglass Color Field Modernist Eyeshadow PaletteHourglass Color Field Modernist Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a mix of beige, gold, brown, and green. It had more shimmery shades than most of the other variations, and in general, the shimmery shades have outperformed the more matte ones for me. It seemed promising when I swatched it, but when I applied to the lid, I really struggled to get even, pigmented color that stayed in place. I would apply the medium green to my lid, then apply the shade next to it, and it would look faded by the time I finished blending! I ended up going over every shade damp, because it was a complete and utter mess dry: patchy, uneven, sheer. I tested it applied dry as well as applied damp, and it's more usable damp and lasts longer that way, but it was frustrating to use it dry. Even when I applied the eyeshadows with a damp brush (except the beige, which is matte), the texture and finish still end up looking a little dry/powdery, especially with the darkest green in the palette.
These long-wear, crease-resistant palettes flaunt five richly-pigmented shades in a range of matte to shimmer finishes for an endless array of creative eye looks. The innovative multi-press, three-dimensional design, paired with a fine, creamy texture, achieves a new level of control for blending and picking up pigment.
