Arctic Lime

Terra Moons Arctic Lime Matte Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, ultra-light chartreuse green with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery texture that yielded some fallout during application.

I would recommend applying this over an eyeshadow primer as it was a little more sensitive to reacting to any natural oils on my lid. The color stayed on well for eight hours and left a bit of 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).

Just a Phase

Terra Moons Just a Phase Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, aqua with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation, which was hard to build up as the texture was drier and more powdery with a thinness that just didn’t sit as flatteringly on my skin.

It was somewhat improved over an eyeshadow primer, but it wasn’t as impressive as other matte shades by the brand. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

4th Dimension

Terra Moons 4th Dimension Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, mint green with a matte finish. It was fairly powdery, which resulted in sheerer coverage, fallout, and less-even application of color.

The pigmentation was more medium without blending, but even with primer, it was hard to get to full coverage that was really seamlessly blended out. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.

Lunar or Later

Terra Moons Lunar or Later Matte Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is an ultra-light blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, somewhat powdery, but it was more substantial than some of the neon shades, so it was actually not as prone to fallout or sheering out as it could have been. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that could be built up to full coverage. It stayed on decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Neptune's Waves

Terra Moons Neptune’s Waves Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that needed a primer underneath it to be built up to full coverage. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery but blendable and easy enough to work with. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of wear.

Azure Skies

Terra Moons Azure Skies Neon Matte Pressed Pigment ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, sky blue with a brighter hue to it paired with a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a drier, thinner, and fairly powdery texture, which wasn’t a fun time to work with. I found that it applied unevenly, had a lot of fallout, and was only somewhat improved over an eyeshadow primer. It wore decently for seven hours before fading visibly.

neon pigments are always so hard to work with imo. they need a tacky white base to look even passable. bummer!

I think that it’s safe to say that all of these need an eyeshadow primer to work well and there are a couple of shades that are well below average. These kind of matte colours are really tricky to do well.
There are some beautiful shades here like Lunar or Later.

Even though quite a few of these aren’t that great, I’m in love with Arctic Lime! I could have some serious fun with that one 😊
