Fenty Beauty Bomb Posse Mega Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition color story inspired by three of the brand’s lipgloss shades. The palette contained six mattes and six shimmers, and while there weren’t any spectacular shades, the shimmers were consistently worse than the mattes and were the reason the palette scored so low. Fenty has been hit or miss on their eyeshadow palettes, but their last two releases were improved, so I had higher hopes for this one since the shades should have been pretty easy to get right as they are common neutral tones. Unfortunately, the shimmers were drier, thinner, and difficult to work with unless really pushing and jabbing at the surface to get powder to release from the surface; the mattes were also on the thin side with some powderiness, so the pigmentation and blendability were inconsistent.
Look Using this Product
Vanilla Cake is a medium beige with warm, peachy undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a moderately powdery consistency that was slightly thin, so it was prone to sheering out once I started to blend out the edges and had some fallout during application. The eyeshadow showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.
Ball’arina is a light pink with cooler undertones and iridescent micro-sparkle that gave it a more frosted finish. It had sheer color coverage, partially a result of the firmer, drier, and stiffer texture. I had to really jab and push at the surface of the pan to dislodge product, which was somewhat buildable, but it didn’t adhere well to bare skin and had a fair amount of fallout. The only way to make it workable was to use it with a dampened brush or a fingertip (which still had some fallout). It lasted for six hours and had additional fallout over time.
Rock and Rose
Rock and Rose is a muted, medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a thinner, moderately powdery texture that had light fallout during application. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading visibly.
Fussy is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and cooler pink micro-sparkle. It had a drier, thinner texture that did not adhere as well to bare skin as it had a tendency not to stick, which resulted in more fallout than anticipated. It had mostly opaque pigmentation when pressed and patted into place, but some of it blended away. The color wore well for seven hours before fading a bit.
Cinna’butta is a medium peach with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff paired with a moderately powdery, slightly thinner consistency that was prone to sheering out when applied to bare skin. It lasted well for seven hours before fading visibly.
La’Bronze is a light-medium copper with warm, orange undertones and flecks of chartreuse shimmer throughout. The consistency was drier, thinner, and stiffer to work with, though it softened slightly after a few uses. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage that did not apply as evenly as ideal. I’d recommend using it with a fingertip or a dampened brush as the latter helped to smooth out the product. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Bare Bunz is a medium brown with warmer, more orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery but blendable. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for seven hours before fading visibly.
Fenty Glow is a dark, orange-dominanted copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The initial consistency was stiffer to work with, but this shade softened and became more yielding after two to three uses. After this, it had more opaque pigmentation and applied more evenly, but it had some fallout during application. This shade lasted decently for eight hours with some fallout over time.
New’d Beach is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a smooth, more velvety consistency with some powderiness, and it seemed to darken a little bit when applied to bare skin, which resulted in slightly patchier application than I expected as it seemed like it was going to blend out well. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Beverly Chillz is a medium copper base with flecks of pink and lighter copper sparkle throughout. The texture was firmer, stiffer, and more challenging to work with when using a brush. I was able to get more opaque coverage using a fingertip or else I had to really push and jab at the powder to get enough to loosen to swatch/use. It applied best with a dampened brush for a smooth application. This shade wore decently for seven and a half hours on me.
Get This Bread
Get This Bread is a deep brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, somewhat powdery, and thinner, which I found resulted in patchier application and made it harder to blend out. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
Hot Chocolit is a deep, richer brown with warm, red undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich pigmentation with a denser, firmer texture that was creamier and easier to work with than the other shimmers in the palette, though still not a top tier shimmer. There were signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
