This is part one of a 10-part Oregonian/OregonLive series on youth mental health. Return to OregonLive throughout the week for more stories on the topic.

Portland teen Sheherazade Weyland, 18, answers young people’s crisis calls and texts at a crisis hotline for children and teens. Calls to the Oregon YouthLine range in severity from distress about a thwarted crush to a young person actively considering suicide. And Weyland and other volunteers at the YouthLine see a clear trend: Among young people, mental health issues are revealing themselves more often and at younger ages.

Weyland noted that callers age 10 to 12 often reach out because they’re contemplating suicide.

“It’s important to remember that an 11-year-old can be suicidal,” Weyland said. “People don’t want to acknowledge that because it’s horrifying. … We don’t want to look at a little kid and think they could hurt themselves.”

But young people can and do: Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 10 to 24 in Oregon. Between 2010 and 2017, almost one-fifth of deaths of Oregon children ages 10 to 14 were the result of suicide. And the suicide rate for those 10 to 24 increased steadily from 7 suicides per 100,000 in 2010 to 14 in 2017, according to Oregon Health Authority records.

National trends show a steady increase in suicide across all age groups. And Oregon’s suicide rate, both overall and for young people, has outstripped the national average for years. In addition to those deaths, hundreds of Oregon youth are hospitalized every year for self harm and suicide attempts. The state also has one of the highest rates of youth depression in the nation, according to non-profit advocacy group Mental Health America.

What’s causing so much distress?

Mental wellness is individualized. No one factor or discrete set of factors causes youth to feel like ending their lives.

But people in Oregon and around the nation with direct experience in youth mental health cite three high-level drivers behind the rise in young people hit by depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges: increased academic pressure, the rise of social media and existential fears stemming from school shootings, climate change and other horrors that have colored their childhoods.

Or, in simpler terms: “Kids are dealing with a hell of a lot more than when we were little,” said Kristi Dille, president of the Oregon Parent Teacher Association.

‘Achieve, achieve, achieve’

Academic stress causes serious mental anguish for many young people, kids, teachers and clinicians say. School is more challenging than it used to be. College looms over most students’ heads, whether they feel that’s the right option for them or not. Standardized testing can make or break a student’s perceived success. The system doesn’t flex, they say, for students who learn differently or those who want to chase dreams outside of a college degree.

Anne Gearity, a Minneapolis-based mental health clinician and professor at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, has consulted with schools about students’ mental health for almost 30 years. She has noticed how the education system has become more stressful for students over time.

Gearity notes that the federal No Child Left Behind law, which vastly increased the frequency of standardized testing in schools nationwide, had the opposite effect of its name. In many cases, she said, “Tests became the only markers of success.” With such a narrow definition of accomplishment, kids who score below grade level but register gains toward that benchmark aren’t often acknowledged for their progress, she said. “We defeat [such students] before they even have a chance.”

In too many cases, Gearity and others in the education field say, the goal morphs from ensuring students are learning to polishing a school’s image with high test scores.

“If you get a perfect score on the SAT, but you’re suicidal, you’re not going to get far in life,” said Lindsay Ray, a math teacher at Beaverton’s Westview High. She says people outside the field of education underestimate how acute the need for mental health services is in schools and how the lack of that care prevents students from learning.

For students who make it through their K-12 years, getting into college and earning a degree has become the single marker of success, say young people facing those pressures.

Sophie Rupp, 19, also volunteers at Oregon YouthLine. She said she felt pressure from her peers not to take a gap year after high school, even though she felt that was best for her.

“There is so much pressure these days to just go to college,” she said. “I was so stressed out by that. My friends were like, ‘You shouldn’t take a gap year, you’re going to be so bored, what are you going to do with your life, why waste it?’”

As with any life decision, different paths work for different people at different times. Even Rupp, who was only delaying college not forsaking it, felt the pressure to conform to that one ideal of college attendance.

The Portland teen is glad she didn’t succumb to it. Taking a gap year “is the best thing I’ve ever done,” she said. “I had time to figure out who I am. I got to travel. I got to work at YouthLine more.”

Now that she’s had that time, she’s heading to Scotland in the fall to study psychology.

“I definitely think alternative routes should be pushed more at schools,” Rupp said.

Weyland, her fellow “YouthLiner,” had a similar experience. After attending a community college for two years, she transferred to a four-year school in Michigan to finish her degree in political science.

She hated it.

“My mental health deteriorated. I was spending every day in my dorm room, sad and alone, and it was horrible.”

Yet heading home was not easy.

“Choosing to leave and drop out was the most difficult decision of my life because there are so many societal pressures that you have to just get through it and you have to get your degree in a certain amount of time,” Weyland said. “It’s a lot of pressure and it’s pretty ridiculous we want people to prioritize that above their own mental health and wellness.”

Now, Weyland is enrolled in a dual enrollment program at Portland Community College and Portland State University to finish that degree. By the time she finishes, she’ll have spent six years working toward it. But that’s okay, she said. It’s necessary to normalize experiences that don’t conform to expectations, she said, because when that doesn’t happen, young people internalize stress and spend more time in situations that are unnecessarily stressful, as Weyland did.

“The pressure on these kids is so great to achieve, achieve, achieve,” Gearity said.

‘Is the world going to be here when I’m an adult?’

Climate-change crisis: Oregon faces wildfires, drought and deep economic losses

UCC mass shooting: Killer ‘angry at the world,’ mom told detectives

Oregon had the 6th biggest rise in reported hate crimes in the nation over a 4 year period, study says

America and its young people live in an age of near-constant bad news. OregonLive, like other news websites, is replete with headlines that stoke young people’s existential fears: stories highlighting climate change, mass shootings, political hate and the like.

Young people see them. And they’re scared.

“I remember when I started in the field, it seemed like a lot of the concerns were just about my universe, my little world, and now it’s a lot more,” said Galen Cohen, a school-based therapist at Madison High in Northeast Portland. Now, he said, he sees students with questions like: “Is the world going to be here when I’m an adult? What’s my role in that? What’s happening with this political system, especially if I don’t have a vote yet? What are the adults doing with my world?”

These concerns can manifest in mental health issues, including depression and anxiety, Cohen said.

Weyland says such fears aren’t just about the future; some are immediate. Older millennials who graduated into the post-recession world are sending bad vibes to the younger Gen Z generation.

“There’s this sense of impending doom from the generation before us,” Weyland said. The college debt crisis, underemployment and the inability to afford a mortgage or kids all loom, along with the resurgence of neo-Nazi groups and estimates that we have just 10 years to solve climate change before it’s too late.

There’s a sense of “What the hell am I doing? Everything is on fire,” Weyland said. And this sense of “impending doom” trickles down to those at the start of their adult lives.

“It’s hard to be excited for college when it’s like debt, debt, debt,” she said.

Young people also fear for their personal safety. Every month, it feels as if there’s another mass shooting in a place that felt safe the week before: schools, concerts, and now, garlic festivals. All three people killed at the latter gathering were younger than 20; one 6-year-old was injured by gunshots in a bouncy house.

Lori Shontz, professor of journalism at the University of Oregon, studies the impact of reporting on traumatic events like mass shootings.

When she teaches about covering these events, she often has students who have personal experience with mass shootings.

Shontz said that whenever she enters a classroom, she checks for an escape route. After all, an assistant English professor at Umpqua Community College and eight of his students died when a gunman targeted their class in a 2015 mass shooting. “If I’m 50 and I’m worried enough to do that,” Shontz said, “I can’t imagine what it’s like for students.”

‘Perplexed and confused and overwhelmed’

After a cluster of student suicides in Salem last year, Salem Health, the organization that runs the hospital in the city, partnered with the school district and other community stakeholders to host listening sessions about youth mental health at every Salem-Keizer high school.

One theme came up at all of them: social media.

“We are all feeling out of control and powerless when it comes to social media,” said Leilani Slama, vice president of community engagement for the Salem Health Foundation. “I think especially the adults feel that social media is significantly contributing to this problem but they don’t know how to change that … It was pretty obvious to me that parents and teachers feel very perplexed and confused and overwhelmed. They think it’s a bad thing, but they don’t really know how to frame it as a bad thing, and they don’t know how to make kids understand that it can make you feel worse.”

It’s an extremely common sentiment among parents, clinicians and others who interact with young people.

But the issue is more complicated than it appears on the surface, especially for youth in middle and high school, according to Nick Allen, director of the Center for Digital Mental Health at the University of Oregon.

Social media is not a problem in and of itself, even though conversations about it are often framed that way, Allen said. Social media “acts as an amplifier to what’s happening in your life offline,” he said, which means taking a teen’s phone away doesn’t address the problem.

“Social media is what you make of it,” Weyland said, who is 18 and also hears from many young people about social media. “People can have very unhealthy relationships with social media in the way they can have very unhealthy relationships with anything.”

Weyland gives the example of a person with a negative relationship with their body: If a young person struggles with body image and spends a lot of time scrolling through profiles of Instagram models, magnifying those negative ideas, the problem isn’t going to go away if social media is seen as the sole cause. The underlying cause still exists, Weyland said.

Many adults frame problems posed by social media as adolescents not knowing any better. Young people disagree.

“Most teenagers aren’t stupid, and if they’re having a problem with social media, they know that’s where it’s coming from,” Weyland said. “Maybe they’re struggling to get away from it, maybe they’re using it as a form of self harm, maybe they’re addicted, maybe there’s other things going on. But I guarantee you if you ask, ‘Is social media negatively impacting your mental health?’ they’d say ‘Yes.’ It’s not this unconscious thing that we’re so immersed in this online world we don’t recognize what it’s doing to us.”

That’s not to say people concerned about young people’s mental well-being should ignore the impact of social media on mental health. Many clinicians advocate for limits on social media usage, noting it can interfere with sleep patterns.

Cohen, the school-based therapist, said he sees students lose sleep in the name of social media because they’re afraid of losing social connections. “If I miss out on notifications in the middle of the night, my friend group might not be there in the morning” is the mentality, he said. Social media can amplify a teen’s worries about the strength of friendships, as well as other concerns, he said.

“Dismissing teen problems as just because of Instagram is one of the fastest ways to make sure a teen doesn’t talk to you about their problems,” Weyland said.

Are you a risk taker? I think one has to be a bit adventurous to eat jalapeños.

You never know if biting into one is going to yield that wonderful flavor and kick that is the basis for so much of Southwestern food. Or if that one little bite will pack such a fiery punch that you’ll be running around the room mouth agape and tears in your eyes, begging for something to cool it all down.

Dairy is the Antidote to Jalapeño Heat

If you find that the pepper you’ve bitten into is just too hot for your tongue, cool it off with sour cream, milk, or cream cheese. That’s the trick and the reason why cheese is so often paired with hot chiles.

There’s something in the milk protein that lessens the impact of the capsaicin (the molecules that give chiles their heat). Which is one very good reason why stuffed jalapeños are stuffed with cheese, among other things.

By the way, if you want mild peppers, look for peppers with smooth skins. Striations tend to indicate that the pepper has been stressed while growing, and that can mean a hotter pepper.

Baked Jalapeño Poppers – Mixing it Up!

The other good reason why stuffed jalapeños are filled with cheese is they taste good that way! Hank and I decided to experiment with stuffed jalapeños this week.

We stuffed them with cheddar, with jack, with pepper jack, with cream cheese, with bacon mixed with lots of other things, and we ended up with two favorites.

Favorites: Bacon and Jack Cheese, and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños

One of our favorite jalapeño poppers was the cream cheese stuffed jalapeño filled with onions, cilantro, cumin and a little bit of jack cheese. The other favorite is similar but has jack cheese and bacon instead of the cream cheese. But you can really do whatever you want here.

Mix it up. Try adding some shrimp, or barbecue sauce. Use queso fresco instead of the cream cheese. Out of the two baked jalapeño poppers recipes below, I loved the way the cream cheese enveloped the jalapeños in my mouth. Hank likes the bacon and jack (well, he would like the bacon version, no duh.)

A Word about Working with Hot Peppers

When working with jalapeños, it helps to wear disposable gloves. If you don’t have gloves, coat your hands with some cooking oil to protect your skin before working with the peppers. Once you are finished, wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water. Do not touch your eyes for several hours after handling the peppers.

Can You Make These Ahead of Time?

You can prep everything and keep them in the fridge a day ahead, and then bake the peppers when you’re ready to serve them.

Do you have a favorite stuffing for stuffed jalapeños or baked jalapeño poppers? We would love to hear about it!

Baked Stuffed Jalapeños Recipe

If you want mild peppers for this recipe, look for peppers with smooth skins. Striations tend to indicate that the pepper has been stressed while growing, and that can mean a hotter pepper.

When working with jalapeños, it helps to wear disposable gloves. If you don’t have gloves, coat your hands with some oil before working with the peppers. Once you are finished, wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water. Do not touch your eyes for several hours after handling the peppers.

Ingredients

For the cream cheese filling version:

  • 12 jalapeño peppers (see Recipe Note)
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt (more or less to taste)
  • 2 ounces jack cheese, cut into 2 1/2-inch long batons

For the bacon and jack cheese filling version:

  • 12 jalapeño peppers (see Recipe Note)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded jack cheese, plus another 2 ounces of jack cheese cut into 2 1/2-inch long batons
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2 Prepare the jalapeños for stuffing: You can either slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise or you can slice off the top one-third (lengthwise) of each jalapeño to make a boat shape out of each pepper.

The halved jalapeños will go further (twice as many stuffed peppers), but you can put more filling into the boat-shaped peppers. Your choice.

If you choose to make the boats, you can mince the tops and add them to the filling if you want some extra heat, or save them for another recipe.

In either case, scrape out all the seeds and ribs from each jalapeño with a spoon (a grapefruit spoon works great).

3 Mix together all the filling ingredients except the jack cheese batons.

4 Stuff the jalapeños: Pack the filling into the peppers and nestle a baton of jack cheese onto the filling of each one.

5 Bake: Arrange the peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 375°F for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, and the peppers are cooked.

Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Pale as a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon, this Napa sauvignon blanc is sunny and bright, a departure from the usual styles of this wine — either overly tropical or heavily grassy and full of ammonia character. What Rutherford Ranch offers instead is a crisp, lemony wine that’s lightly herbal, exhibiting solid mineral notes, and finishes as crisp and clean as a breath of floral-scented mountain air. At 12 bucks a bottle (vs. an MSRP of $23), it’s a highly approachable steal.

By following a plant-based diet, you’re consuming only the natural sustenance from the earth that God intended for you all along. The nourishment you receive from organic fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds is all your body needs to thrive, according to Genesis 1:29.

Genesis 1:29 “Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.”

Inspired by this idea and God’s Original Diet, our founder Rev. George Malkmus developed the Hallelujah Diet in hopes that people would stay away from the Standard American Diet and fuel their bodies back to health.

God's Original Diet consisted of natural sustenance grown from the earth. God's Original Diet consisted of natural sustenance grown from the earth. God’s Original Diet consisted of natural sustenance grown from the earth.

“From the time God gave Adam that original 100 percent raw, plant-based diet in Genesis 1:29, until flood waters destroyed all plant life by the great flood 1,700 years later, there is not a single recorded instance of sickness and the patriarchs lived to an average age of 912 years old,” Rev. Malkmus wrote in his book “God’s Original Diet.”

Removing processed treats, dairy products and meats from your diet will benefit your body tremendously. Here are three reasons to invest in a plant-based diet:

1. It Strengthens the Immune System
Did you know that refined sugars can completely break down the immune system? That means every time you consume an unhealthy sweet treat, you’re fueling the compromise of your internal defense mechanism. By eliminating such “foods” and relying on a plant-based diet, you’ll receive an abundance of enzymes, phytonutrients and minerals that can optimize your immune system.

2. It Can Reduce Your Chance of Developing Chronic Conditions
There’s a reason it’s called “junk food.” According to Dr. Mercola, when you consume these poor excuses for nourishment, your metabolism slows down, blood pressure levels rise and your risk for developing chronic conditions increases.

“Dairy products are filled with saturated butterfat.”

We know what you’re thinking: We know junk food is bad for us, but what’s wrong with meat and dairy products? Since when are these considered unhealthy? Dairy products, such as milk and cheese, are filled with saturated butterfat. Consuming too much can lead to heart disease, diabetes and more. Additionally, animal fat found in meat products can block blood flow, leading to high blood pressure. Intake of animal protein has also been associated with a 4-fold greater risk of cancer death in middle-aged adults.

When you remove all of these harmful foods from your diet and instead rely on plant sources, you’ll eliminate your chance of developing chronic conditions. Instead, you’ll fuel a healthy, thriving body that wards away disease and illness on its own.

3. It Eliminates the Need for Most Medication
When you follow the Hallelujah Diet as taught, you obtain all of the essential nutrients and vitamins the body needs to heal itself. That eliminates the need for most medications, according to Hallelujah Diet health expert Olin Idol.

“If a person will simply follow the principles of the Hallelujah Diet, it really doesn’t matter what the underlying cause of the symptoms is,” he said. “The body, with the innate healing wisdom God has programmed within will, in most situations, carry out self-healing.”

When you take advantage of the natural offerings presented by God and stop eating the harmful products made of chemicals, you can lead a long, fulfilling life.

Fenty Beauty Beach Bum Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium coral with warm undertones and fine, golden pearl throughout. It seemed almost like a rusty coral–more a mix of red and orange undertones than pink but still not overtly orange-based. The texture was thin, lightly emollient from the tube, but it quickly turned from cream to powder when it came into contact with my skin (whether fingertips or applied directly onto my skin from the tube).

It had opaque coverage when applied directly from the tube and more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when applied with fingertips or a brush. I didn’t have any trouble patting it onto my skin and diffusing the edges, both over bare skin as well as over base products. The color stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading visibly. It seemed slightly more emollient to work with overall than the mini-version I tried in the holiday set.

  • MAC Telling Glow (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar).
  • MAC Stereo Rose (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).
  • Becca Watermelon/Moonstone (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar).
  • Melt Cosmetics Genesis (P, $39.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).
  • Colour Pop Sidewayz (P, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar).
  • Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #9 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).
  • Cover FX Spiced Cinnamon (Right) (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).
  • Zoeva CR030 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).
  • Colour Pop Drop of a Hat (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar).
  • Jouer Marigold (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.25 oz. – $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing with a “light-as-air,” “blendable” texture that “lives to be layered.” They twist-up and are medium-sized with a domed edge. I found that applying to my fingertips worked better than direct application, as it enabled me greater control over coverage level as well as placement, and if you tend to apply over foundation, then this will help keep the Match Stix cleaner, too.

The texture was thin, and it did seem to go from a “cream” in the tube to a more powder-like product once on the skin. They were fairly blendable with a few being more sparkly with less visible base color, which may not be for everyone, and others had a more pearl-like sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. Most shades applied and blended out without lifting up foundation or pulling into pores (over bare skin), but the ones that did tended to have larger particles in them. They lasted between six and eight hours on me.

A problem I had throughout just swatching each shade on my cheeks for photos was that whatever was exposed was a bit dry, more powdery to the touch, and I felt like I had to really warm the product up and/or swipe it back and forth on the back of my hand to refresh the texture. This is not uncommon with drier, cream-based formulas, but it’s still a downside and an area that could be improved upon. Some shades were very pigmented, others were medium and buildable, and a couple were sheerer.

With suicide rates among young people continuing to rise across the country, The Loft Cinema is hosting a free resource fair, film screening and panel discussion Tuesday focusing on mental health and teen suicide.

The event, presented by the University of Arizona’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, runs from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and will feature a screening of the 2016 documentary film, “Not Alone.”

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10 to 24 in Pima County, according to data from the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner.

In “Not Alone,” 18-year-old filmmaker Jaqueline Monetta gets her teen subjects to open up about their struggles with mental illness and suicide attempts, providing the audience an intimate look into the subjects’ beliefs about depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide, getting help and treating mental illness, according to a news release.

Monetta was driven by a desire to understand why her best friend took her life at the age of 16. The teens in the film open about about the despair they felt and how talking about it saved their lives, assuring the audience that mental illnesses, like physical illnesses, can and should be treated, the release said.

After the film, Bonnie Kneller, a lead social worker at Tucson High, will lead a panel, which will feature Joronda Montaño, executive director of notMYkid; Rezwana Islam, a UA public health major and LGBTQ advocate; Ernestina Limon, a former Pima County health deptartment community mental health and addiction program coordinator; and Darin Knapp, a UA Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences assistant professor .

I’ve thrown together a lot of tomato salads in my life. And certainly not all need to be highlighted here…That said, I made one over the weekend that is a bit offbeat, in a good way -a seasonal salad worth sharing. I think the magic happened when I decided to roast half of the tomatoes. The salad became a mix of beautiful heirlooms in shades of greens, reds, yellows, and orange, tossed with their roasted, caramelized counterparts. The roasted tomatoes brought depth to the salad – well worth the bit of extra time and effort.

Building on the tomatoes

Beyond the tomato base (use your best & make sure they’re ripe), I found myself pulling from ingredients around the kitchen. Capers, quickly pan-fried, added a mustardy pop. Crunch came from toasted almonds, and creamy fresh mozzarella delivered just the right amount of decadence. Fresh herbs added a bright finishing accent.

Tomato Salad Variations

Don’t let my version influence you too much. Play around! You can take the basic premise (a tomato salad made with a mix of ripe and roasted in-season tomatoes) in unlimited different directions. Try different nuts, herbs, and vinaigrettes. A version using this pesto is A+. Experiment with different tomato varietals and shapes.

It’s easy to prep nearly everything ahead of time here, and I have to tell you, this salad served on slabs of garlic-rubbed bread? Or partnered with oven-baked falafel tucked into warm pita bread? Best lunch I had all week.

Midnight Sun

Pat McGrath Midnight Sun Mothership Eyeshadow Palette ($125.00 for 0.47 oz.) is new, permanent palette that features 10 shades across a myriad of finishes. There are three matte finishes, while the rest of the shades are shimmers with four (on the right side) being the more sparkly, dome-shaped variety. The mattes were very pigmented, silky, and blendable, while most of the shimmers were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with. I did have a bit of fallout with some of the more sparkly shades, and one of the sparkling shades was sheerer unless used with a wet brush.

Skinshow Moon Glow

Skinshow Moon Glow is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a bright, pearly sheen. It had very fine shimmer throughout, but it was quite brightening when applied. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out beautifully. This shade stayed on nicely for 10 hours on me before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.04 oz. – $625.00 Per Ounce

Pat McGrath’s eyeshadows are, generally, supposed to be “super-saturated” with “creamy, soft textures” and “extreme blendability and adherence without creasing.” A lot of how well they perform (and to some degree, how they are supposed to be applied and marketed) depends on the type of shades, but by and large, the eyeshadows perform very much as they are described.

The brand released single eyeshadows in March 2019, and the shades have been consistent in quality, look, and feel. They are not removable, unfortunately, so one would have to depot like any other single eyeshadow–I tried using tweezers and lifting on several shades to no avail. The lids are held closed by a weak magnet, so I’m not sure they’re as secure as most single eyeshadow compacts in my stash–I wish it really locked in, but there’s definitely a magnet that pulls the lid down if it’s within 2mm of the base.

The mattes are velvety, blendable, and dense without being thick or too heavy, and they have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation where a little can go a long way with some of the deeper and richer hues. The satin and pearl finishes are smooth, lightly creamy, and firmer but not dense or thick with good pigmentation, blendability, and easy application. The more metallic finishes tend to be softer, creamy, and smooth with a bit more denseness and no powderiness. The sparkly/glittery shades are often designed to be applied wet for richer coverage or intensity, which has largely been my experience. Most of the shades last between eight and nine hours.

Bronze Eclipse

Bronze Eclipse is a golden bronze with warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a very long way. The texture was smooth to the touch, creamy without being heavy, and it “melted” when applied to my skin for a very flattering, shiny finish that was smoothing as well. It wore well for 10 hours before creasing very faintly on me.

Vermillion Venom

Vermillion Venom is a rich, reddish burgundy with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The consistency felt velvety, slightly denser and more substantial, and there was a bit of fallout if I wasn’t careful to tap off excess prior to applying. There were signs of fading after 10 hours of wear.

Blood Moon 005

Blood Moon 005 is a rich, medium-dark copper with strong,w arm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation applied dry but applied more smoothly and had fully opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush or a fingertip. The texture felt drier, more sparkly to the touch, though it applied smoothly when I pressed and gently patted it into place. There was light fallout when I worked with it dry, but I didn’t have issues with continuous fallout during the 10 hours it lasted for.

Jubilee

Jubilee is a light-medium gold with muted, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage applied dry as well as wet, though the dampened application yielded a slightly smoother finish and didn’t have any fallout (dry application had light fallout if I wasn’t careful). The texture felt smooth to the touch, wasn’t powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, and the edges blended out well. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours before creasing noticeably.

Xtreme Dusk

Xtreme Dusk is a deep taupe with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation when applied to my lid and crease in a single layer, while the texture was soft, silky, and blendable without being too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan. This shade lasted well for nine and a half hours before fading slightly.

Taboo

Taboo is a light-medium brown with warmer, slightly yellower undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer, and it was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was silky, smooth, and substantial without being too heavy or too powdery, so it blended out easily but retained its intensity and coverage. It lasted well for nine and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Wicked Envy

Wicked Envy is a muted, medium-dark olive green with subtle, warmer undertones and a pearly sheen with faint sparkle throughout. The texture felt more cream-like with a thicker, denser consistency that took a heavier hand or a flat, synthetic brush to pick up well. It applied better with a fingertip, as the warmth of my fingertip did a better job dispersing the product on my lid than a dry brush, but it was workable with a dry brush and more improved with a wet brush. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for 10 hours before creasing a touch on me, and I didn’t notice any fallout over time.

Blitz Violet Orchid

Blitz Violet Orchid is a light-medium purple with cooler undertones and flecks of blue and violet iridescent sparkle and micro-shimmer. Per the brand, it can be used with a dampened brush for greater intensity, which was accurate; it had mostly opaque coverage applied dry, but it was much brighter, richer, and had more of a metallic finish and full opacity when applied with a wet brush. The consistency was smooth, almost cream-like; it felt more emollient and almost squishy compared to most of the brand’s more dome-shaped formulas. The color applied well to bare skin and stayed on nicely for 10 hours before creasing faintly on me.

Astral Solstice

Astral Solstice is a bright, golden beige that was primarily made up of shimmer and sparkle rather than a base color, as it was more transparent when applied dry. When applied with a dampened brush, it had opaque color payoff and more metallic finish. This shade is recommended to be applied with fingertips, and when done so, it had more medium coverage that added a lot of sparkle and faint shine.

There was light fallout when applied with a dry brush, none with a wet brush, and minimal with a fingertip (dry). The texture felt surprisingly smooth despite how much sparkle and shimmer was in it, and it sat well on my skin with good adhesion through the nine hours it lasted for–there was only a touch of fallout over time. The swatch of this shade, as shown by the brand, was opaque, and while pigmentation was definitely more true medium coverage with fingertip (as recommended), it wasn’t opaque either.
