Coloured Raine Safari Raine Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Safari Raine

Coloured Raine Safarai Raine 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.44 oz.) 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.

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.

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.
