Infrared

Terra Moons Infrared Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a vivid, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, lightly powdery texture that had good adhesion to bare skin and blended out well. It stayed on well for nine hours but left a stain behind.

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).

Terraverse

Terra Moons Terraverse Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that wasn’t too thin or too dense, which made it easy to pick up with a dry brush and blend out without losing intensity. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Not That Sirius

Terra Moons Not That Sirius Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, darker pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out with ease on my skin.

The texture felt smooth, finely-milled, and a touch powdery in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Meet Me on Mars

Terra Moons Meet Me on Mars Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a neon, coral-orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was moderately powdery and more prone to sheering out, so it was best used with a good base. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore decently for eight hours before fading a bit.

Terra Moons Cosmic Blaze Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was on the thinner, more powdery side, so there was some fallout during application. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

With the exception of the two last more coral shades, these neon and bubblegum pinks are just not for me. I could see them looking amazing on very dark brown eyes, though!

I love Terraverse! These all look nice, but Terraverse is one I don’t have anything similar too that isn’t a glittery or shimmery shade. I have a few other Terra Moons shadows I have been eyeing and they all are very reasonable in price for my budget. Looks like I need to go ahead and place an order now that I have so many that I’m interested in.

Oh, these are gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to experiment more with color this spring/summer, and I love some of those warmer pinks! Not that Sirius in particular is really pretty, I don’t think I’ve seen a ton of shades like that.

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!
