Fenty Beauty Holo’daze Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition palette that includes three more metallic eyeshadows and three matte eyeshadows. It’s an interesting color combination as the mattes are lighter than most of the shimmers, and there are two very light mattes in the palette at that.
I could see this working more readily for someone who does one or two eyeshadow looks or as a companion palette. The quality was decent; the mattes were blendable, though powdery, while the shimmers were less consistent (two were good, one was below average).
Violet Vibez is a medium purple with warmer undertones and cooler, violet pearl. It had opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty along the edges. The texture felt more emollient, was thin but had a denser feel in the pan itself. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Royal Dazzle is a darker, yellowed peach with flecks of pink and gold sparkle over a more metallic finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied decently with a brush but could have been easier to spread out and blend out. I’d recommend using a fingertip or a dampened brush for easier application and greater coverage. The texture was more emollient, almost cream-like, and densely-packed. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Blood Moon is a deeper, red-copper with subtle, warm undertones and a smooth, pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage with a moderately emollient, more dense-packed texture that translated as a thinner layer on the lid. I would recommend using a denser brush to pick up product and use more of a pushing motion than a swirling one. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which wore nicely for eight hours before fading.
Concrete Lavender is a very light, pinky lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin–with far less sheering out than I’d expect–and blended out well without becoming uneven. The texture was somewhat powdery, so I’d use a lighter hand or tap off excess prior to applying it to the eye area. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Honey Splash is a medium-dark peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could be built up to full coverage with a second layer. The eyeshadow had a soft, finely-milled feel but was somewhat powdery, so it sheered out a little too readily but was blendable and easy to work with otherwise. This shade lasted nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
Brownie Babe is a medium-dark mauve with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and lightly powdery in the pan, so there was a touch of fallout while blending it out on my skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
