Coloured Raine Power Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

Power

Coloured Raine Power 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that contains a deeper, purple/plum-themed mix of hues. There are five shimmers and four mattes. The shimmers all have a more emollient, denser/thicker nature to them and most felt a bit more cream-like as a result.

The mattes were the least consistent as the pigmentation ranged from semi-sheer to nearly opaque, though they were all buildable, and they varied in how readily they blended out. The mattes were improved when used over an eyeshadow primer, so the palette will work better for someone who typically uses a primer with their eye looks.

Coloured Raine Truth Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Truth Eyeshadow

Truth

Truth is a bright, medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and diffused nicely along the edges. The consistency was denser, more emollient, and felt more like a heavily-pressed cream than a traditional powder eyeshadow. It wore well for eight hours on me before creasing slightly on me.

Coloured Raine Legacy Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Legacy Eyeshadow

Legacy

Legacy is a pale lavender with cooler undertones and a sparkling finish that shifted from cooler violet to slightly warmer, pink-lavender. It seemed to have a more translucent base, so the coverage came more from all of the shimmer and sparke, while the translucency made it easy to use as a layering shade on top of other eyeshadows (like Truth–great combo!). The brand listed this shade as a topper, so the way it worked and the coverage level seemed as expected. The texture felt emollient to the touch and blended out well without fallout. The color stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Coloured Raine Respect Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Respect Eyeshadow

Respect

Respect is a medium-dark, warmer reddish-copper base with flecks of pink-to-blue shifting sparkle. The consistency was emollient, heavier and thicker to the touch, and it worked best with fingertip application. If you’re less inclined to use fingertips, a flat, synthetic brush would be your next best bet, which I preferred over a wet brush. It had good color coverage in one layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out nicely without causing fallout. It lasted well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Snitch

Snitch is a rich, burgundy red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had barely-there micro-shimmer that seemed to help it blend out more readily but didn’t actually impact the finish, as it appeared quite matte in practice. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but rather smooth, so I expected more blendability than I experienced but was workable. I’d recommend using a lighter hand and placing color initially with a smaller, more detailed brush and then using a clean brush to diffuse and blend out. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Coloured Raine Revenge Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Revenge Eyeshadow

Revenge

Revenge is a light-medium copper with warmer, orange undertones and flecks of peach-to-pink shifting sparkle. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin, but it seemed slightly chunky and had a more loosely-pressed feel to it, so there was a bit of fallout if I wasn’t careful. On the flip side, as it wasn’t so thick and dense in the pan, it was easier to apply and blend out with all types of brushes/techniques compared to the other duochrome shades in the palette. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me fading visibly.

Deception

Deception is a muted, rosy mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was buildable, but the texture was slightly drier and thin, which I did find made an impact on application–it just was harder to really diffuse and blend out. It was easier to work with over an eyeshadow primer but still required some fussing. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Alibi

Alibi is a deep, plummy purple with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a denser, slightly firmer consistency that felt more silicone-heavy. The color applied fairly well to bare skin, but I highly recommend using a flat, synthetic brush and pressing and gently pushing the color into place. At this point, it’s more of a modification of technique to use with the heavier, silicone-based formulas we’re seeing (which tend to have a nice depth and overall adhesion, so tradeoffs). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Betrayal

Betrayal is a medium-dark, reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without too much effort, though I’d recommend using an eyeshadow primer with it. The texture was lightly dusty in the pan and thin without being too dry. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Testify

Testify is a muted, medium-dark plum with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to more semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. The texture seemed slightly stiffer, thin, and on the drier side, which all contributed to it being less workable. I’d definitely say that a primer was necessary for this shade, as it helped to mitigate some of the stiffness and improved blendability. The color lasted nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.
