Editorial 2.0

Sephora Editorial 2 PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($68.00 for 1.12 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that features more muted or faded takes on pops of color with some neutrals mixed in.

I have not had great luck with Sephora’s formula in their 28-pan palettes like this one; I find it very dusty and on the thinner or drier side, so they are harder to work with on bare skin (without primer or with a dampened brush). They often sheer out, go on unevenly, and/or fade more quickly, and that carried through in this palette, too… except that this was the worst of all the Sephora PRO palettes I’ve tried.

You’d have to pay me to use this palette again; it’s not worth $0.68 let alone $68. The inconsistency in texture, pigmentation, and wear alone make it a total no-go, because who wants to decipher the perfect method of application across 28 shades? Some of them do not play well together because all they do is make the lid look like a desert due to how dry and dusty the formulas can be. I did not find that it was consistent with past experiences with the Sephora PRO formula either.

Products like this make it harder and harder to purchase from Sephora’s house brand, at least when it comes to eyeshadows. I can’t figure out how this made it to market in this form; so many shades were unworkable on their own, were barely workable over primer, and everything was so dry, dusty, and powdery. I had more eyeshadow underneath my eyes than on them each time I endured testing this travesty of a palette. Nothing says “worth it!” like dreading using it because you know you’re signing up for a dismal-at-best look (that took two to three times as long to do before I gave up fussing with it!). The two included looks are using some of the “best” performers in the palette, and for the blue look, all shimmers were applied with a wet brush.

Twinkling Lights

Colour Pop Twinkling Lights Super Shock Shadow Quad ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of cream-to-powder eyeshadows in peach, rosy coral, orange-coral, and rich, red-coral. Each shade can be purchased individually if preferred, which is always nice. I enjoyed using three of the four shades but found one, Light Up, to be disappointing.

Twinkling Lights

Colour Pop Twinkling Lights 4-Piece Lip Set ($20.00 for 0.44 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition set that includes two lipglosses and two liquid lipsticks. Each shade is also available individually if that method of purchasing is preferred. My favorite was Night Light, which was a very festive shade for the holiday season and offers up an affordable take on a color combo I feel I’ve seen a few times this year. I was surprised that Lucky Star didn’t sit better on my lips, though.

Rendezvous

Colour Pop Rendezvous 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette exclusively available at Ulta. It includes a mix of repromotes along with new shades; the repromotes include: My Treat, Want U Back, Two Birds, Never Never, and Let’s Do It. It’s another winning palette from the brand, so if the colors are up your alley and not repeated in your stash already, it’s certainly worth considering. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing on the whole with minor, more nitpicky deficits than major issues.

Autumn's Reign

Sydney Grace Autumn’s Reign Eyeshadow Palette ($52.00 for 0.95 oz.) is a new, permanent palette featuring a mix of mattes and shimmers across neutrals and various jewel-toned hues. Most of the eyeshadows were opaque, though a few were more semi-opaque (often buildable). The matte eyeshadows having a soft, velvety (lightly dusty to lightly powdery) consistency that applied well and blended out without much work. The shimmers had a creamier, denser consistency, but they weren’t too thick or heavy, so I was able to use them with brushes to achieve rich coverage and smooth application. They lasted between eight and eight and a half hours on me across the board.

Also! 25% of proceeds through December ’18 will be donated to victims of the Paradise fire (why I reviewed the palette over the singles first).

Légèreté et Expérience

Chanel Légèreté et Expérience Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition all-matte quad featuring a coral, peach, red, and mid-tone brown. All four shades were fairly pigmented and lasted between seven and eight hours, though I had some trouble diffusing and blending out the red shade. I know readers were concerned about overlap with the Candeur et Experience quad, and I think the red and brown are similar enough, but the top two shades in Candeur et Experience aren’t replicated in this quad.
