I’ve been kinda having a bad run with eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes lately. Spring 2016 brought us a ton of different options from both drugstores and higher end brands but many have been complete misses with very few hits.
One hit you can bet on are the new Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Eyeshadow and Kohl Liner! I stupidly only purchased one now I’m trying to hunt down more shades. If you see them, pick one or two up as the formula is pretty darn great.
But this isn’t a post about eyeshadow hits, this is all about the misses so here are 5 Eyeshadow and Eyeshadow Palettes you can skip that just recently launched!
Lorac Nude Necessities Eyeshadow Palette
Honestly, it’s rare that Lorac creates an eyeshadow that I didn’t like! But the Nude Necessities Eyeshadow Palette that launched with the Lorac Spring 2016 is a big miss for me. The shades in this palette are gorgeous but they sadly all look the same and offer no real definition making for some muddy looks during the blending process. I expected a lot from this palette but what I did get was disappointment.
Maybelline Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon
Maybelline’s new Spring 2016 cream eyesahdow crayons are a retake on the cult favorite and very popular Color Tattoo pot eyeshadows. These seemed like a great idea as who doesn’t love a quick to apply cream pencil that promises great color pay off. Sadly, these blend out very, very sheer so lots of building is required to get the best color pay off! Sadly, the application was just too much of a hassle.
Maybelline The Rock Nudes Palette
Speaking of Maybelline, their latest 12 shade pan palette takes on smokier shades to create a sultry eye look for Spring. Sadly, this one was dry, dense, and difficult to blend. Truly a major skip!
Clinique Lid Pop Eyeshadow
Clinique’s Lid Pop formula was an exciting release considering how great the Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes were. Sadly, the eyeshadow formula does not quite live up to that of the blush!
Revlon Not Just Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
I think to myself maybe the newest Revlon Eyeshadow Palettes don’t belong on this list. They aren’t a mere skip, they are however, an “AVOID AT ALL COSTS!” They are Dante’s Inferno, “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here!!!!!!!!!!!” These have a dry, difficult to blend, and horribly pigmented formula. Just don’t do it.
