Coloured Raine Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) come in an array of shades and finishes. I reviewed all of the existing shades in the past, so here’s a reminder of the best shades within the singles range as their Black Friday sale is on (and goes through 11/26) with items up to 60% off — plus, you can get an extra 10% off your orders with code TEMPTALIA.

Some of my personal favorites: Passion, Blue Magic, Glamour, Golden Olive, Secrets, Side of Olives, Forbidden, and Gumby.

Also, worth mentioning:  the Queen of Hearts palette (review) is one of the best palettes of all-time, and during the sale, it’s $30 (plus 10% off makes it $27) and their Focal Point Glowlighters come in a a nice selection of shades and most shades I enjoyed.

What a splendid, high quality, yet very affordable line of eyeshadows! I am loving several shades that have some more expensive dupes. This is one very cool BOMB company to watch evolve even more, as they’ve already developed a lovely core line. Excited to see what comes next from Coloured Raine!

Very impressed by the swatches! I ordered the Queen of Hearts palette, coming next week, hoping it survives my oily lids. I normally would start with a small order to test, but since Queen of Hearts was LE, I didn’t want to miss out. If that works out, will go back for the singles

So great! Super new options.

I swear if I had a new makeup line, my goal would be to formulate a deep purple powder shadow that Christine would rate an A. 🙂 That must be one hard color to pull off in creation and manufacturing. So popular too. I know I’ve struggled with my share of purples.

I love seeing budget brands do so well, especially in the mattes! I’ll definitely keep them in mind when I next need a new shade.

I seriously hope Lancome and Guerlain are looking how gorgeous these shades are for a fraction of the prices they charge and much better quality. They are sensational.

I have been wearing these shadows nonstop since I purchased them. I am really enjoying them. They blend so well, are very smooth and the color selection is nice.

Oh, how I wish that were true. But, sadly, too many lines do not make quality mattes for highlighters and crease colors, or if they do, they’re 50 shades of brown and tan.

Oooh these are super pretty! Are they the same pan size as the Makeup Geek shadows? I discovered that these are the same size as the ABH pans, so they fit inside one of the 4-pan compacts! I really like having a premade quad over a Z pallet full of random shades.

Beautiful line. I received my Queen of Heart palette last week and OMG I’m in love with it. I wish international shipping wouldn’t be that expensive though. What is the palette you store the eyeshadows in?

My original comment was on 1/8/17 and I have been trying to FORGET how good these are. And they certainly are! The devil on one shoulder is rationalizing, “But you haven’t gotten any holiday e/s, bargains or otherwise.” The angel is saying, “What about no starting new-to-you brands and not falling for every beautiful swatch you see?” Good thing I’m going to work soon.

Hi Christine, is there any chance you could set up a “Temptalia palette” with CR with all the single shadows you have in this gorgeous palette, so we don’t have to pick them out one by one? I would just buy that while “palette” of shadows – it’s a stunner. Theoretically, it’d be easy to do – all they’d have to do is a home/Temptalia or something and you would list it as that link, instead of (or in addition to) the general Temptalia link every time you feature your own curated collection. There is a lot of value in your curated collections, painstakingly cherry picked by color and analysis.
Thanks as always!

Unfortunately, that’s really on the brand’s end – I don’t get control over having them do something like that! There was nothing special about the colors here – literally everything I ordered at the time, no curation or talent there, LOL!

The original sneak peek shows what shades were in it: https://www.temptalia.com/sneak-peek-coloured-raine-eyeshadows-photos-swatches/

Maybe Valerie means a palette like your OMGWTF marvelous fantasy palettes, or the 4 combos that you do with palettes, only done w/CR singles, i.e. curate some quads. Your eye is impeccable.

Even though I literally just bought Huda Beauty New Nudes (to keep boxed up until after I read your review on it), ABH MR and some warm singles, I am hopping on the QoH palette! Tonight! ♥️

Oh goodness no, KJH! But I think I am guilty of wording my above sentence quite awkwardly, though. I should have said it in 2 separate sentences: I literally just bought Huda Beauty New Nudes. Plus I *still* have my ABH MR palette and many warm single e/s’s. Wrote the OG comment while sitting in a Starbucks nook in the food court, which threw me into a state of hyper-vigilance because all the seats at the back were taken. My writing suffered. Sorry about that.
