Dominique Cosmetics Celestial Storm Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Celestial Storm

Dominique Cosmetics Celestial Storm Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.63 oz.) is a new palette for fall that features several pops of color paired with orange, copper, and taupe to ground them. I enjoyed the color story quite a bit personally, and I liked how the left side was “cooler” and the right side was “warmer,” so the color groupings made sense visually, which made it easier to visualize how to use the palette.

The mattes were lovely–dense, substantial, pigmented, and blendable–and with primer underneath, they’d really sing. The shimmers ranged from dismal (hello, Stargaze) to good, but they didn’t reach the heights of past palettes by the brand as they all seemed to be a bit more firmly-pressed in the pan and felt thinner, less cream-like.

Electric Amethyst

Electric Amethyst is a rich, fuchsia pink with cool, bluish undertones and flecks of violet and pink shimmer and micro-sparkle. It appeared purple in the pan but definitely was a fuchsia shade in practice. It had a firmer, denser consistency, though it seemed to soften slightly after repeated use. The product had opaque color coverage applied dry as well as wet. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.

Dominique Cosmetics Stargaze Eyeshadow

Dominique Cosmetics Stargaze Eyeshadow

Stargaze

Stargaze is a blackened, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was very firm, stiff, and dry to the touch, which made it a real beast to work with. It was a case of “one of these things isn’t like the others,” and the eyeshadow felt so out of place in the palette because of how stiff it was and how poor it worked/applied. With the black base, it was hard to use it as a topper because so little product transferred from the pan to brush or fingertip (it actually applied the worst with fingertips as all the product stuck to my fingertip and nothing translated onto my lid!).

It did, in fact, have sheer coverage as described (this was the only “topper” shade described as sheer), and if used with a wet brush, it had more medium coverage. The edges just did not blend out, and it had a rough, textured look on my skin. The product stayed on decently for six and a half hours on me.

Dominique Cosmetics Eternal Light Eyeshadow

Dominique Cosmetics Eternal Light Eyeshadow

Eternal Light

Eternal Light is a light, peachy beige with warm, golden undertones paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had larger, silver micro-glitter throughout, so there was some fallout during application and later on during wear if it wasn’t applied with an adhesive spray or over a tacky base. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and I thought that the wet application would improve it, but it made it harder to apply it evenly. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Storm Dust

Storm Dust is a deep brown with warm, red-orange undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single pass, while the texture was smooth, velvety, and just a touch powdery in the pan. It applied well to bare skin with an even lay down of color that blended out easily along the edges but retained its opacity and depth where I wanted it to. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours before I noticed slight fading.

Lunar Eclipse is a muted, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but applied beautifully with even, opaque coverage that didn’t sheer out too readily.

Astrid Lust

Astrid Lust is a bright, purple-berry with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The consistency was soft, velvety, and substantial without being too densely-pressed in the pan nor was it prone to powderiness to sheering out on my skin. The color went on evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. It wore well for nine hours before fading, and it left a stain behind after removal.

Mystic Ice

Mystic Ice is a medium teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly powdery in the pan, and it sheered out a touch during application but would be better over a primer. Otherwise, the eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety, more substantial feel that wasn’t prone to fallout and blended out without too much effort. I did find this shade was more challenging to work with compared to the other mattes in the palette, though. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Zero Gravity

Zero Gravity is a light-medium, grayish taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation but had a moderately powdery texture, so while it felt silky and soft to the touch, it had some fallout and was prone to sheering out a bit on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Black Matter

Black Matter is blackened purple base with lighter pink and purple shimmer throughout. The texture was denser, smooth to the touch, but it yielded well enough that picking it up with a brush wasn’t a challenge. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as wet, though the wet application yielded a more shimmery finish. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Dominique Cosmetics Solstice Eyeshadow

Dominique Cosmetics Solstice Eyeshadow

Solstice

Solstice is a light, peachy copper with warmer, golden undertones and flecks of peach and pink sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and more opaque coverage when applied with a wet brush. There were a few shades in the palette referred to as toppers, but only one of the shades was described as sheer (so on the flip side, the rest should not be sheer)–and it wasn’t this one.

It had a more sparkly texture, though it didn’t feel gritty, and for as sparkly as this shade was, I didn’t have much fallout, though there was some. It applied best with fingertips or a dampened brush, which helped the product to adhere more evenly and minimized fallout. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me but had slight fallout over time.

Dominique Cosmetics Fireball Eyeshadow

Dominique Cosmetics Fireball Eyeshadow

Fireball

Fireball is a brighter, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and flecks of pink to copper shifting shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as wet, but in order to get the depth of the shade as viewed in the pan, the eyeshadow needed to be applied with a wet brush. The texture was soft, smooth, and picked up well with a brush. It lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of wear.
