Coloured Raine Safari Raine Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Safari Raine

Coloured Raine Safarai Raine 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette is a new, permanent palette featuring four mattes and five shimmers. I only had trouble working with one shade–Congo Basin–which was less blendable than I expected, while the other eight shades were fantastic: pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. Shades like Toucan and Green Valley were exceptionally creamy–seemed quite packed with silicones–so my best tip for those who haven’t worked with this type of formula before is to use flatter/denser brushes and less sweeping, more pressing/patting motions.

 

Coloured Raine Toucan Eyeshadow

Toucan

Toucan is a rich gold with strong,w arm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, cream-like texture that was dense but not too thick or too firmly pressed in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that blended out easily along the edges. It lasted beautifully for eight and a half hours before I noticed faint creasing.

Clay

Clayis a muted, medium orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a velvety, soft consistency that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, so the color payoff was opaque and didn’t sheer out too readily (but still blended easily along the edges!). This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Coloured Raine Tigress Eyeshadow

Tigress

Tigress is a rich, dark coral-orange with warm undertones and orange shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even application. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and dense without becoming too thick or heavy on the lid. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Congo Basin

Congo Basin is a muted, medium olive green with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer and stiffer with a thinner feel to it, and unfortunately, it was harder to blend out on my skin (with and without primer). It had opaque pigmentation, and it worked decently when layered with some of the other deeper mattes in the palette, but I couldn’t get the edge to really spread and soften as much as I wanted to. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Coloured Raine Green Valley Eyeshadow

Green Valley

Green Valley is a light-medium green with warm undertones and strong, gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being too thick, and blendable on my skin. It stayed on well for eight hours before creasing slightly on me.

Jungle

Jungle is a muted, deep green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque, while the texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan (but not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application), and remained blendable on my skin. It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade visibly.

Coloured Raine Lioness Eyeshadow

Lioness

Lioness is a bright, medium gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was creamy, denser and slightly thicker, which helped the sparkles combine with the base pigment.It had rich color payoff with a smooth, even application that blended out without much effort. It showed faint creasing on me after eight hours of wear.

Coloured Raine Amazon Basin Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Amazon Basin Eyeshadow

Amazon Basin

Amazon Basin is a medium-dark, golden taupe with subtle, cooler undertones in its base but warmer shimmer that gave it a warmer tone overall. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a soft, more loosely-pressed texture–use a gentler touch to avoid loosening too much product in the pan–that applied best in a pressing and patting motion. The powder blended out easily and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Coloured Raine Matriarch Eyeshadow

Coloured Raine Matriarch Eyeshadow

Matriarch

Matriarch is a deep brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was opaque, while the eyeshadow had a soft, velvety texture that wasn’t too thin nor too thick, which made it easy to work with. The color applied evenly and blended out with minimal effort, and despite it being deep and pigmented, it wasn’t prone to fallout. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before it faded noticeably.
