Cool Neutrals (2)
Fenty Beauty Cool Neutrals (2) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that features three shimmer shades and three matte shades in a “cooler” color story. I’d argue that three shades were more muted but still warmer, though. Fenty’s matte eyeshadows perform decently–buildable and/or pigmented, blendable, and have decent wear–but find the shimmers to be more inconsistent. Hey Aunty was very weak and could have easily been replaced with something else if that’s the best they could do for a blue-based purple.
Fenty Beauty U There Eyeshadow
U There is a soft, light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well, though I felt like it lost some of its shimmer/sheen once applied. The consistency was dense without being stiff, so it wasn’t powdery but picked up well with a brush. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Fenty Beauty Uppaclass Eyeshadow
Uppaclass is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery texture that seemed to “melt” on my skin after initial application. The product blended out easily and lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Fenty Beauty Wife It Up Eyeshadow
Wife It Up
Wife It Up is a medium-dark, dusty mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was a little powdery in the pan, but it wasn’t prone to sheering out or to fallout, so it ended up being blendable and easy to work with. It had intense pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin and wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Fenty Beauty Hey Aunty Eyeshadow
Hey Aunty is a brighter, light-medium bluish-purple with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that applied lighter and less shimmery compared to how it appeared in the pan.
I found the texture thin but fairly silicone-heavy, so it had a lot of slip and was difficult to apply evenly with a brush. It was easiest to apply with a fingertip or a sponge-tipped applicator, which picked up product and deposited it more intensely to bare skin. I felt like it was harder to work with over primer than bare skin, actually. It showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.
Fenty Beauty Risky Richez Eyeshadow
Risky Richez is a light-medium, golden taupe with muted, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The consistency was soft, not too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan, so it was easy to work with. There was a little bit of powderiness, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to pick up product initially. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Fenty Beauty Gettin’ Toasty Eyeshadow
Getting’ Toasty is a darker taupe-brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque (two to three layers) with a soft, lightly dusty texture that didn’t have too much excess product that kicked up in the pan, and I didn’t have issues with fallout during application. The eyeshadow applied fairly evenly and blended out without too much effort. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
