Coloured Raine Juicy Boost Pressed Pigment Palette

 

Juicy Boost

Coloured Raine Juicy Boost 18-Pan Pressed Pigment and Shadow Palette has three intense shimmer shades with the remaining shades being mattes. The palette itself has a mix of eyeshadows and pressed pigments (the ones that are not intended for the eye area, which are listed on the back). The shimmers are harder to use as they are thicker and creamier with Sweet Ruby being a nightmare to work with as it slid around and was uneven most of the time.

The mattes were a mixed bag; some were decent, while others fell short, and a few seemed to settle into my pores (which is something I’ve seen more commonly with drier, matte blushes) or catch on skin texture (in a way that is just not that common for me when working with eyeshadow–and my eyes were not abnormally dry!). In a way, the palette suffers from typical issues of brighter, more vivid matte eyeshadows/pressed pigments from the past, so it’s not terrible but hasn’t found a way to fix those issues.

Coloured Raine Blueberry Burst Eyeshadow

Blueberry Burst

Blueberry Burst is a medium blue with cooler undertones and warmer, green and gold sparkle over an intense, metallic finish. The texture was creamy and more emollient, but it was moderately thick, so it was harder to diffuse it into the mattes in the palette without causing them to lift up or getting a lot of separated sparkles that went over the mattes but didn’t really blend into them.

It was also best applied with a fingertip as a dry brush resulted in uneven application. There were stray sparkles that dropped over the eight hours it lasted before creasing noticeably.

Coconut Water

Coconut Water is a bright, cooler white with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that could be built up to full coverage with two to three layers or applied over a slightly tacky primer. The consistency was lightly powdery in the pan with a smidgen of fallout during application. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Cucumber Avocado

Cucumber Avocado is a bright, chartreuse green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well without losing its coverage. The texture was somewhat powdery in the pan, and it emphasized my skin texture and made it appear drier. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Mint Leaves

Mint Leaves is a light-medium lime green with subtle, warmer yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but the more powdery, slightly drier texture came through on my lid as it emphasized my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours and left a bit of a stain behind.

Energy Boost

Energy Boost is a medium, bluish-teal with a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, moderately powdery texture that sheered out slightly when applied to bare skin.

I’d definitely recommend using a primer with this shade to ensure coverage and blendability. It lasted decently for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Kale Yeah

Kale Yeah is a deep green with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin as the color went on evenly and blended out with ease.

The texture was lightly powdery but did not appear dry on my skin. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Coloured Raine Sweet Ruby Vivid Pigment

Sweet Ruby

Sweet Ruby is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, bluish undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage but was difficult to apply to the lid, even when using fingertips. The texture was very thick and prone to sliding around on the lid, so it was hard to achieve even coverage. There was a moderate amount of fallout during application and continuous fallout (to the point of irritation) throughout the eight hours it lasted for (before creasing).

Pink Grapefruit

Pink Grapefruit is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The texture was lightly powdery and a bit drier, though it adhered decently to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Cranberry Vanilla

Cranberry Vanilla is a dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was lightly powdery with a smidgen of graininess present in the pan, but it didn’t impede the actual application with respect to blendability.

The major issue I had was this shade seemed to seep into my pores and emphasize skin texture, which resulted in a “freckled” look where I had darker spots of pink. It had opaque color payoff that lasted for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Berry Beet

Berry Beet is a deeper, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was slightly drier and a touch grainy–not as smooth as most matte eyeshadows are–but that didn’t impede the actual application. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Watermelon Detox

Watermelon Detox is a vivid, pink-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, slightly grainier texture with some dryness, though it blended out without difficulty. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

Apple Strawberry

Apple Strawberry is an intense, vivid red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a slightly drier, almost grainy, texture, which I’ve experienced previously with this type of color.

Despite the texture, it applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading and left a faint stain behind.

Coloured Raine Lemon Wheat Grass Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Lemon Wheat Grass Eyeshadow

Lemon Wheat Grass

Lemon Wheat Grass is a bright, deeper gold with warmer undertones and cooler, greenish-gold sparkle and shimmer paired with a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered fairly well to bare skin, but it was very creamy and emollient, so it tended to apply the cleanest with a fingertip, though it was workable with a dry brush by patting and pressing it into place.

It was thicker than the mattes, so it was hard to diffuse or blend it with them. There was creasing present after eight hours of wear and light fallout over time.

Citrus Zinger

Citrus Zinger is a medium yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that had a touch of fallout and appeared to emphasize my skin’s natural texture as it was a bit drier. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

Ginger Bae

Ginger Bae is a bright, medium-dark yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery but blendable and not prone to sheering out. It had rich color coverage that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Turmeric Shot

Turmeric Shot is a bright, deeper yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff that adhered well to my lid as the product blended out easily, but the formula itself was prone to settling into pores and darkening there, which resulted in a “freckled” appearance. The texture was lightly powdery with a bit of dryness but didn’t indicate it was going to have any major problems in practice. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading and left a stain behind.

Orange Carrot

Orange Carrot is a bright, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, and it was easily built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was fairly soft, lightly powdery but blendable, but it seemed to settle into my pores and appeared freckled with random darker spots. The color itself seemed to last for a solid eight and a half hours on me.

Sweet Potato Mango

Sweet Potato Mango is a light-medium, yellowy brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product. The texture was smooth, soft without being overly powdery, and blendable. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.
