Caesium

Terra Moons Caesium Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark, golden pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, high-shine metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, very creamy texture–it felt like silk and almost wet with how refined it was. It applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. There was a bit of creasing present after eight and a half hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.05 oz. - $120.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "blendable" and "pigmented" with "a bit of kick up" when used due to being "pressed by hand." Some shades come with "additional information" such as being sheerer on the brand's website (for that particular shade) or to use a "glitter primer" due to the finish.

I found that some matte shades were more noticeably powdery than others, but whether there was just a little bit of powderiness or more noticeable powderiness really depended on a shade. The neon shades were the most powdery and hardest to work with on their own; some had more specific tips/guidance on how to work with them, which I felt was great for disclosure, but it could get hard to remember what shade needs to be applied in such and such fashion since it really did vary a lot shade by shade. The darker and less neon matte shades tended to perform the best for me--more pigmentation, better blendability, and were easier to work with and were more consistent.

Most shades--matte and more shimmery--were pigmented, easy to blend, and applied well to bare skin. They lasted between seven and eight hours with most closer to eight hours before fading (more of the mattes) or creasing (some of the more intense metallics).

Rubidium

Terra Moons Rubidium Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light, golden bronze with a strong, metallic finish and faint sparkle. The texture was smooth, creamy, and easy to work with as it wasn’t too thick but not prone to being powdery or being overly emollient on the lid (despite feeling so silky!). It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly.

Palladium

Terra Moons Palladium Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, rosy copper with warm undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. It wasn’t as warm-toned or as reddish for a true rose gold, and as a result, it almost fit in better as a very dark, warm-toned mauve shade when I went looking for similar hues.

The consistency was incredibly smooth and cream-like without being too thick or too densely-pressed into the pan. I’d almost say the texture had some fragility to it so a lighter hand was all that was necessary to pick up opaque coverage. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before creasing a touch.

Call me shocked, but I have no dupe for Rubidium. And I could see it working beautifully with ND Glam! Could really bump up the shine on that one, especially the two warmer shimmers.

Wow, these are super pretty. Palladium is like my favorite everyday color to wear. But remind me a bit of the copper shades I live from Charlotte Tilbury. I purchased shadows from her this year and they are unbelievable! I want to own all her shades but I need to use up stuff I purchased already. I love everything I have purchased and already ranked up points for $25 off.

All of these are totally beautiful and restore my faith in the makeup industry that an indie brand like Terra Moons can deliver such gorgeous eyeshadows for a very reasonable price.
Everyone of the shades above would work for me. They are stunning.

I’m so glad that these have great ratings! I made my first (international) order with Terra Moons during their sale because I couldn’t stop thinking about these swatches when I first saw them on your blog! They look so smooth and shiny and unique! I can’t wait to receive them along with some other multi chrome eyeshadows!

Gah, these are so pretty! Whenever I see a new swatch of a TM shadow, I just put it on my wishlist. This has become a top 3 formula for me. It’s perfect.

So I bought all three of these and I have to say, I’m somewhat disappointed. While they swatch gorgeously, when applied to my lid the glitter and fallout is just too much. These turn out to be way more glittery than you initially think and at 45, glitter isn’t all that cute.
