Fenty Beauty Money (10) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition six-pan palette that featured two matte eyeshadows with four shimmery eyeshadows. The color story worked well together with the exception of Rubbabandz, which was quite warm and lacked the depth to pair well with most shades in the palette. A deeper, matte green or cooler, black-brown could have worked well here, I think.
The quality was slightly better than the original release of eyeshadows by the brand; the mattes were very blendable foolproof to work with, but the shimmers are slightly too emollient on average.
Phat Pockets is a medium-dark, emerald green with subtle, cool undertones and fine, golden pearl that gave it more of a satin sheen. The texture was more firmly-pressed into the pan, but it didn’t seem stiff to work with, though it applied best by pressing and gently pulling the color to spread it out on my lid. It had rich color payoff that wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Need Receipts is a very light, golden green with strong,w arm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient and had some slip, though it adhered well without a fuss. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Thyme is Money
Thyme is Money is a brighter, light-medium lime green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well without losing its intensity.
The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and easy to work with and it had just a touch of powderiness in the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Rubbabandz is a muted, medium olive green with strong, warm brown undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque buildable coverage with a soft, silky texture that was somewhat powdery. As long as I tapped off the excess prior to applying the eyeshadow, fallout wasn’t an issue, and it blended out quite nicely. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Direct Deposit is a medium green with moderate, warm undertones and cooler, emerald green and green-gold pearl. The texture was denser, though not thick, and felt more emollient, so it worked better with a fingertip or really pressed/patted on rather than swept on or else the color could get uneven.
I didn’t have issues just diffusing and softening the edges, though. It had nearly opaque color coverage that lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
Flash Money is a bright, medium yellow-gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was dense, lightly creamy but slightly thicker, which actually worked out as it made it easier to pick up and to apply without it being prone to turning uneven (like with Direct Deposit!). It had rich color payoff that adhered evenly and stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of wear.
