Queen to Be

UOMA Beauty Queen to Be Black Magic Color Mini Palette ($29.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a new, limited edition colorful palette featuring five matte shades and four shimmer shades. The quality was all over the place, and those who don’t mind some of the powderiness present with more neon-like matte shades may not find it too difficult to work with.

Nefertiti

Nefertiti is a muted, light-medium sky blue with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of pink sparkle. The consistency was firm and stiff to work with, which resulted in drier, uneven coverage that was somewhat sheer. It was difficult to apply and blend out on my lid and was only workable with a fingertip. There were signs of fading visible after seven hours of wear.

Ingredients

TALC, CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE, DIMETHICONE, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, MICA, ZINC STEARATE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, TIN OXIDE, HEXYLENE GLYCOL.

Yaa Asantewaa

Yaa Asantewaa is a medium-dark lavender with subtle, warm pink undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage that was somewhat buildable but best applied over a primer, which helped it adhere more smoothly and improved coverage. The texture was slightly thin and moderately powdery. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Kandake

Kandake is a brighter, medium-dark yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly powdery texture that applied evenly and blended out well, but there was a touch of fallout. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Makeda

Nandi

Nandi is a brighter, lime green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery and drier compared to most shades in the range, which made it difficult to apply evenly and to build up the coverage. It had a tendency to have quite a bit of fallout when blended out as it sheered out from semi-opaque to semi-sheer coverage. There were signs of fading present after seven hours of wear.

Ingredients

TALC, MICA, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, POLYMETHYL METHACRYLATE, SILICA, DIMETHICONE, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, HEXYL LAURATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ZINC STEARATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, HEXYLENE.

Moremi

Moremi is a medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was more powdery and slightly thin, which resulted in some fallout and the product sheering out a bit in practice. It had opaque coverage and could be built back up after it had sheered out during application. The color stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Ingredients

TALC, MICA, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, POLYMETHYL METHACRYLATE, SILICA, DIMETHICONE, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, HEXYL LAURATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ZINC STEARATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, HEXYLENE.

Ranavalona

Ranavalona is a light, white gold with a transparent base and flecks of champagne sparkle throughout. The texture was lightly emollient but not enough to keep all that sparkle in place when applied and blended out, so fallout was an issue both during application as well as during wear. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage, which may have been as intended, but there weren’t shade descriptions so I rated it like the formula in general (which is pigmented!). This shade lasted decently for eight hours with some fallout over time.

All over the place is right! Ugh. Seems to me like UOMA doesn’t know how to formulate their blues or silvery shades at all. Which is really a shame because I would have loved to get that other 9-pan, Good Morning Zamunda.
