Hocus Pocus

MAC Hocus Pocus Eyeshadow x 8 Palette ($35.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that features four matte eyeshadows, one more satin-pearl shade, and three more sparkly shades (Pressed Pigments). The Pressed Pigment formula is an unusual addition to a pre-made MAC palette, but it is a formula that’s been released individually in the past and is supposed to have “sheer-to-moderate buildable coverage” that can be used wet or dry. The coverage ranged from sheer to medium and greater, depending on the shade, but they all had more translucent bases packed with larger flecks of glitter and sparkle.

The matte eyeshadows felt more velvety and seemed to have a bit of glide and slip to them, though they weren’t as consistent in application as I expected, and they weren’t as blendable as they should have been, which was also a surprising result based on the texture and the type of tones they are (if we were talking about a matte purple eyeshadow, I wouldn’t have been caught off-guard!).

After five attempts using this palette, I had the best luck dusting translucent powder onto my lid, letting that sit for a few minutes, and then using a thin layer of eyeshadow primer, but I would stay away from using it over bare skin or over a tacky/creamy base, as both seemed more likely to produce patchier results.

Lo and Behold

Lo and Behold is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan. It was the best-performing matte shade in the palette, yet it was one of the more vivid/deeper shades, so that was unexpected–normally darker mattes can be harder to blend out. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

La-di-da

La-di-da is a light, peachy gold with sparkle that shifted from gold to pink. It had sheer to semi-sheer, buildable coverage applied dry and mostly opaque coverage when applied wet. The consistency was dense, firm without being too stiff (though I’d use a synthetic brush and push gently at the surface to dislodge pigment), and adhered well to bare skin with brushes as well as fingertips. There was slight fallout after eight hours of wear.

Blanche Cloud Nine

Blanche Cloud Nine is a muted, medium rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer paired with a soft, velvety texture that was lightly powdery in the pan, but I didn’t have issues with fallout during application.

The first time I tried this shade, it did not apply evenly and left bald patches in places as I attempted to spread and blend out the product. The second time I used it, it was more forgiving and while it wasn’t effortless, it blended out without too much work. It seemed to perform similarly over MAC’s eyeshadow primer–better but not perfect–and the fourth time I used it on bare skin, it appeared slightly patchy as the matte powder darkened a bit in places. On me, it showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Brownie Points

Brownie Points is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had sheer coverage applied dry and mostly opaque coverage applied wet, and it had buildable pigmentation overall. The texture felt smooth, lightly emollient to the touch, and had good adherence to bare skin without fallout, though the pan itself seemed a little stiff. This shade didn’t have as many larger particles in it, so it also had better overall wear as it lasted for eight hours and I didn’t notice fallout over time.

Touch Wood

Touch Wood is a light-medium, taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The eyeshadow had a smooth, slightly firmer texture, and it didn’t feel as velvety (but it wasn’t prone to sheering out) as the other mattes in the palette. It applied fairly evenly and blended out decently, but it took more effort than ideal. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed some fading.

Lie Low

Lie Low is a light brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that sheered out a bit when initially applied, even over an eyeshadow primer. The eyeshadow blended out well along the edges and was easy to use. It stayed on nicely for seven hours before fading noticeably.

All in All

All in All is a light, golden peach with warm, orange undertones and flecks of pale peach and gold sparkle and glitter. It had medium coverage applied dry and semi-sheer coverage applied wet, which was unusual, but I felt like using it with a dampened brush resulted in the product sliding around enough that it created sheerness instead.

The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy with moderate slip. The eyeshadow applied evenly and was buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage (two to three layers). It wore well for eight hours with some fallout over time.

Carbon-Copy

Carbon-Copy is a light pink with warmer undertones and a golden shimmer throughout. The texture was incredibly soft, smooth, and blendable to the touch, though slightly dusty to work with. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Viseart Grande Pro Vol. 3 Palette ($175.00) is the newest in the Grande Pro series, which are larger format palettes that contain 30, full-sized shades (that are removable). Per Viseart, all of the shades in the palette are new and exclusive to the palette.

Notably, it’s marketed as a Pigment palette, and in the FAQ on the palette, one question is “can all shades be used in the eye area” with the answer given as “This palette is made with the finest pigment and is EU (European Union) compliant for use in eye makeup.”

ColourPop Lilac You a Lot Eyeshadow Palette is the newest in the brand’s monochromatic palette series. At a glance, it runs a bit cooler-toned than the It’s My Pleasure palette, but I see overlap, too, within that same glance (dupes are the last step in the review process, but I’ll be sure to add them when I get to the review!).

There are several other products (most in sets) to coordinate with this palette, but they included (mostly) recently reviewed products, so I only swatched the new palette, which you’ll find next up in this post.

Whatever

Colour Pop Whatever 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.36 oz.) is new release for fall, which features seven matte eyeshadows, one cream eyeshadow, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one glitter (which isn’t intended to be used on the eyes). The mattes performed well; I feel like ColourPop has tweaked their matte formula slightly, as they’ve been feeling a little more velvety and smoother overall in the last palettes I’ve tried from them.

The three traditional shimmer shades were good, though TTYN seemed to have a little too much slip but was quite workable. Tardy, the Super Shock Shadow, should work fine for anyone who likes more of a topper/layering shade, as its big downside was lack of coverage.  Overall, the eyeshadows performed consistently with their formulas; they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Tardy

Tardy is a light, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had more medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it worked better as a wash of color all over the lid, as a high-shine brow bone highlight, or to brighten the inner tear duct area.

The consistency was creamy, smooth, and thin, so it felt more powder-like–as the formula does–when applied to the skin but initially felt more emollient, and you could press on the pan and see the product move. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without creasing or having fallout on me.

Pink Slip

Pink Slip is a muted, light brown with warmer, yellower undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture felt soft, velvety, and smooth to the touch, which resulted in even, blendable application. It had opaque color payoff that lasted beautifully for eight hours before fading a bit.

Maybe Later

Maybe Later is a brighter pop of reddish-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation but needed a half of a layer more on top for full coverage. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly, built up easily, and blended out without issue. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before starting to fade visibly.

Copy Cat

Copy Cat is a muted, peachy-orange with strong, warm golden undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, velvety, and smooth to the touch with a touch of powderiness in the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Pass It On

Pass It On is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm, brownish undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly full color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly on my skin, while the pigmentation built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety without being powdery or prone to fallout. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before there was visible fading.

Bad Guy

Bad Guy is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges without the rest of the application losing coverage or intensity.

The consistency felt soft, lightly dusty in the pan, but it wasn’t prone to fallout during application. I’d recommend using a lighter hand initially and adding more pressure as necessary, as the pigmentation stretched out a lot. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Duh

Duh is a pale gold glitter with a mix of particle sizes and depths; the smaller glitter particles seemed to be closer to white gold with some shift, while the larger hexagon-shaped glitter seemed to be more of a straightforward yellow gold. The glitter was suspended in a translucent base, so it was not fully opaque, which was on par with the formula.

The more emollient texture helped to keep most of the glitter together and ensured better-than-average adhesion to skin, but there can be light fallout depending on application method, blending, and time worn. As a cheek highlighter, there was half a dozen or so particles (per cheek) that traveled within an eight-hour wear time.

Please keep in mind that this product is not for use on the eye area; see this warning for more information. I, along with others, sound like broken records, but it would be great if ColourPop would keep their Pressed Glitters out of the eyeshadow palettes!

Not OK

Not OK is a rich, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and a lightly sparkled, metallic finish. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer, which applied smoothly and evenly on my lid. The consistency was lightly creamy, not too dense nor too loosely-pressed in the pan, so it was easy to work with, blended out easily, and didn’t have issues with fall out. It lasted well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Ditchin’ U

Ditchin’ U is a bright, medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a creamier, smooth texture that felt almost like a cream-to-powder formula based on the amount of slip present in the pan.

A single application of the eyeshadow yielded opaque color payoff in one go, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well along the edges. I’ve noticed that the more emollient (but powder!) formulas can show some translucency when they’re spread out along an area, which this one did a bit. I like using flat, synthetic brushes for application and subtle diffusing to minimize unnecessary movement. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with slight fallout over time.

In Bold

In Bold is a medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had barley-there multi-colored shimmer over a more matte finish, so it functioned like a matte would in practice as it was hard to see any shimmering effect in person.

The texture was soft, thin without being too dry or difficult to blend out, and sat well on bare skin. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

TTYN

TTYN is a medium-dark copper with warm, rusty red undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture felt more emollient, almost too slippery, and it worked better with flat, synthetic brushes or fingertips to ensure even coverage. Fluffier brushes seemed to push the product out a little too much, which created unevenness. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Ms. Brightside

Ms. Brightside is a meidum-dark, reddish-burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage achieved in one layer, and the eyeshadow adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort along the edges. The texture was soft, a smidgen on the drier side, but it didn’t seem to impact the application or wear. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed some fading.

Radioactive

Melt Cosmetics Radioactive 8-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($48.00 for 0.66 oz.) is the newest palette from the brand, which seems like a replacement from the Radioactive Stack, which shares the first four shades (on the left), while the last four shades (on the right) are new.

At a glance, it looks like a fun palette, and I love working with color, but I was left disappointed by this palette. A few of the shades were under-pigmented, while others were firm, stiff, or difficult to apply or to blend out, so the palette was rather hard to work with on its own. Applied over primer, things were slightly more manageable, but it remained a challenge to use even with primer.

Radioactive

Radioactive is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with strong, cool undertones and a satin finish. The eyeshadow had a denser, smoother consistency that felt more silicone-heavy to me, as there was light slip, but it was thinner and firmly-pressed in the pan.

I found the texture made it hard to pick up product with a brush and then apply it to my lid, so the end result was somewhat patchy, semi-opaque coverage that didn’t build up well. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably on me.

Radon

Radon is a medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish, though there was the faintest pink and gold pearl at times. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, but it was difficult to achieve those results once I started to apply and blend out the color in practice. The texture felt more emollient, but it seemed to crumble a bit and resulted in emphasized texture of my lids and some patchiness in overall color. It lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me before showing signs of fading.

This shade seemed redder and less powdery than the original from the Radioactive Stack.

Neon

Neon is a bright, sunshine yellow with a mostly matte finish. It had a drier, moderately powdery texture that felt chalky and was prone to fallout, sheering out, and emphasizing lid texture and lines. There are a lot of shades this color on the market–it’s just one of those shades that every brand has done–and this is such a far cry from how well they can be done.

It seemed to have quite a bit of pigmentation, but it ended up so lost after blending and sitting on my lid for a few minutes (as my natural oils seemed to feast on it). The color wore decently for six hours on me before fading visibly and left a light, yellowish stain behind.

Xenon

Xenon is a bright, chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and fine golden shimmer over a more matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a drier, moderately dusty texture that had light fallout during application and was more prone to sheering out. The eyeshadow was blendable, though, so as long as the lesser pigmentation isn’t a deal-breaker, it wasn’t the worst shade in the palette (which, unfortunately, isn’t high praise). It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

Arsenic

Arsenic is a medium, blue-leaning teal with faint shimmer woven through a more matte finish. It looked bluer-based in the pan, but it had such a faded appearance when swatched that it almost read warm-toned against my warmer undertones.

The texture was thin, stiff, and dry–almost chalk-like–and the application showed it to be the same. It was difficult to build it up barring using it with a white base, but even going through my arsenal of tips, it was difficult to get true-to-pan coverage. The eyeshadow was fairly blendable, and it worked well as a diffusing shade against Meltdown, but it wasn’t much to speak of as a standalone shade. It showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Meltdown

Meltdown is a muted, medium-dark teal with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was slightly drier to the touch, lightly powdery, but it didn’t prove to be troublesome with fallout. The eyeshadow applied fairly evenly and blended out without too much effort. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Hazmat

Hazmat is a bright, deeper violet purple with subtle, cool undertones and a satiny sheen. It had some shimmer in there, but the finish didn’t end up looking that shimmery or metallic when applied to my skin. It had an incredibly dense, almost stiff, consistency that was thick and extremely difficult to pick up with brushes.

I had to really jab at the surface to get product onto my brush, and it was a challenge to press and push it into place on my lid. I had the best luck smoothing out the product with a fingertip or using it with a wet brush. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Uranium

Uranium is a light-medium lavender with cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had a drier, more powdery texture with moderate kick up in the pan and some fallout during application. It applied unevenly and was difficult to get into place without using a fingertip or a wet brush. The pigmentation was medium to semi-opaque and did not build up well. The eyeshadow started to show signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Exes and Oh’s

Colour Pop Exes and Oh’s 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, Ulta-exclusive palette that features muted tones of red- and orange-toned neutrals in both shimmery and matte finish. For anyone who likes to wear these types of tones, it should be an easy palette to work with as the majority of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. A few of the mattes needed to be built up slightly for full coverage, while shimmers like Know Better just work best as layering shades or washes rather than standalone shades (there was no description from the brand that implied it was supposed to be sheer, though).

Know Better

Know Better is a pale pink with warmer undertones and flecks of silvery pink and gold sparkle. It had more of a transparent base, so it worked better as a layering shade patted on top of another eyeshadow for some shimmer or to add glitz to the inner tearduct. It could also be applied all-over the lid as a wash of sparkle. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient but blendable and had very little fallout when applied to my skin, though there was a bit of diffusion when I blended out the edge. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours with light fallout over time.

Stay Golden

Stay Golden is a brighter, muted red with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that needed half of a layer built on top for full pigmentation. The texture was soft, a little drier and dustier in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out well, though I had slight fallout during application. It lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain after removal.

Hooky

Hooky is a medium brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin in a single layer. The texture was soft, blendable, and had enough substance to work well without a primer as it didn’t sheer out too readily but still blended along the edge. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

20 Something

20 Something is a bright, peachy gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was some fallout during application, but the overall consistency was creamier and more silicone-heavy, which helped most of the sparkles to adhere to my lid. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Issues #2

Issues #2 is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft with moderate powderiness, so there was some excess product kicked up in the pan and a touch of fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Reckless

Reckless is a deep plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that needed less than half of a layer built on top for full coverage. The consistency was soft, velvety, and substantial, but it remained blendable along the edge with a touch of fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before I noticed some fading.

Rookie

Rookie is a bright, medium copper with stronger, warm undertones and flecks of multi-colored shimmer and sparkle throughout. It had a cream-like feel–very smooth and emollient–but it applied with excellent pigmentation in a single layer and all of that sparkle adhered well and didn’t give me trouble with fallout during application. This shade stayed on well for nine hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.

Fortunate

Fortunate is a light-medium, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there shimmer throughout but not enough to meaningfully change the finish from visually matte on the eye. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety consistency that was blendable and not prone to sheering out on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Realness

Realness is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, rusty undertones and a matte finish. It had a slightly powdery texture, so there was some excess product that was kicked up in the pan, but I didn’t notice any issues with fallout during application. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. It wore well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Easy Go

Easy Go is a medium-dark red with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, slightly firmer texture, though it wasn’t stiff to work with. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Side Tracked

Side Tracked is a light-medium brown with warmer undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, but it seemed to be confined to the pan as I didn’t have issues with fallout or the product sheering out too readily on my skin. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted nicely for eight hours before starting to fade.

Smitten

Smitten is a medium red with subtle, warmer undertones and cooler pink shimmer that gave it a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage, but it had a more silicone-heavy–but very thin–feel that made it harder to apply without the product moving around, so the overall application was uneven on my skin. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before creasing on me.

Celestial Storm

Dominique Cosmetics Celestial Storm Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.63 oz.) is a new palette for fall that features several pops of color paired with orange, copper, and taupe to ground them. I enjoyed the color story quite a bit personally, and I liked how the left side was “cooler” and the right side was “warmer,” so the color groupings made sense visually, which made it easier to visualize how to use the palette.

The mattes were lovely–dense, substantial, pigmented, and blendable–and with primer underneath, they’d really sing. The shimmers ranged from dismal (hello, Stargaze) to good, but they didn’t reach the heights of past palettes by the brand as they all seemed to be a bit more firmly-pressed in the pan and felt thinner, less cream-like.

Electric Amethyst

Electric Amethyst is a rich, fuchsia pink with cool, bluish undertones and flecks of violet and pink shimmer and micro-sparkle. It appeared purple in the pan but definitely was a fuchsia shade in practice. It had a firmer, denser consistency, though it seemed to soften slightly after repeated use. The product had opaque color coverage applied dry as well as wet. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.

Stargaze

Stargaze is a blackened, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was very firm, stiff, and dry to the touch, which made it a real beast to work with. It was a case of “one of these things isn’t like the others,” and the eyeshadow felt so out of place in the palette because of how stiff it was and how poor it worked/applied. With the black base, it was hard to use it as a topper because so little product transferred from the pan to brush or fingertip (it actually applied the worst with fingertips as all the product stuck to my fingertip and nothing translated onto my lid!).

It did, in fact, have sheer coverage as described (this was the only “topper” shade described as sheer), and if used with a wet brush, it had more medium coverage. The edges just did not blend out, and it had a rough, textured look on my skin. The product stayed on decently for six and a half hours on me.

Eternal Light

Eternal Light is a light, peachy beige with warm, golden undertones paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had larger, silver micro-glitter throughout, so there was some fallout during application and later on during wear if it wasn’t applied with an adhesive spray or over a tacky base. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and I thought that the wet application would improve it, but it made it harder to apply it evenly. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Lucid Dream

Lucid Dream is a rich, deeper berry with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. The consistency felt velvety, smooth, and finely-milled without being too powdery nor was it too firmly pressed in the pan. The color wore nicely for nine hours and left a faint stain behind after being removed.

Storm Dust

Storm Dust is a deep brown with warm, red-orange undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single pass, while the texture was smooth, velvety, and just a touch powdery in the pan. It applied well to bare skin with an even lay down of color that blended out easily along the edges but retained its opacity and depth where I wanted it to. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours before I noticed slight fading.

Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse is a muted, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but applied beautifully with even, opaque coverage that didn’t sheer out too readily. It blended out easily along the edges and stayed in place well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Astrid Lust

Astrid Lust is a bright, purple-berry with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The consistency was soft, velvety, and substantial without being too densely-pressed in the pan nor was it prone to powderiness to sheering out on my skin. The color went on evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. It wore well for nine hours before fading, and it left a stain behind after removal.

Mystic Ice

Mystic Ice is a medium teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly powdery in the pan, and it sheered out a touch during application but would be better over a primer. Otherwise, the eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety, more substantial feel that wasn’t prone to fallout and blended out without too much effort. I did find this shade was more challenging to work with compared to the other mattes in the palette, though. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Zero Gravity

Zero Gravity is a light-medium, grayish taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation but had a moderately powdery texture, so while it felt silky and soft to the touch, it had some fallout and was prone to sheering out a bit on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Black Matter

Black Matter is blackened purple base with lighter pink and purple shimmer throughout. The texture was denser, smooth to the touch, but it yielded well enough that picking it up with a brush wasn’t a challenge. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as wet, though the wet application yielded a more shimmery finish. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Solstice

Solstice is a light, peachy copper with warmer, golden undertones and flecks of peach and pink sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and more opaque coverage when applied with a wet brush. There were a few shades in the palette referred to as toppers, but only one of the shades was described as sheer (so on the flip side, the rest should not be sheer)–and it wasn’t this one.

It had a more sparkly texture, though it didn’t feel gritty, and for as sparkly as this shade was, I didn’t have much fallout, though there was some. It applied best with fingertips or a dampened brush, which helped the product to adhere more evenly and minimized fallout. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me but had slight fallout over time.

Fireball

Fireball is a brighter, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and flecks of pink to copper shifting shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as wet, but in order to get the depth of the shade as viewed in the pan, the eyeshadow needed to be applied with a wet brush. The texture was soft, smooth, and picked up well with a brush. It lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of wear.
