Fenty Beauty Wine (9) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition release that includes three matte eyeshadows and three shimmer eyeshadows. Fenty makes really soft, silky matte eyeshadows that are often very blendable and easy to work with, although they’re often more buildable in coverage.
Pinot Please particularly impressive in this palette, and the rarity of this type of shade made the whole palette “worth it” to me for it alone! The shimmers were solid, but they were still a bit overly emollient, which is consistent with past shimmer shades I’ve tried by the brand.
Pop the Cork
Pop the Cork is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm rust undertones and a smooth sheen. The texture was dense, though not stiff, with a bit of a thicker feel when applied to bare skin, but it went on evenly and blended out without issues along the edges. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Bottle Service is a medium-dark red with moderate, warm undertones and fine pink and gold micro-sparkle that gave it a pearly sheen. The texture was dense, more firmly-pressed into the pan, so you’ll want to use a moderate pressure to pick up product evenly onto a brush (or use a fingertip). It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin but seemed to look less pearly after a few minutes. This shade wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.
She Bubbly is a light-medium, golden peach with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency felt more loosely-pressed in the pan with less slip compared to most of the brand’s shimmers, which helped it apply better, though it had a bit of fallout. It had rich color coverage that lasted well for eight hours on me.
Rose Spritz is a light peach with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, but the moderately powdery texture made it prone to sheering out and having light fallout during application. There were signs of fading visible after seven and a half hours of wear.
Pinot Please is a deep, purple-plum with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, velvety texture that was incredibly finely-milled (often, this color in a matte finish would feel drier or even grainy).
It was very deep and rich in a way that we don’t see often–it’s the kind of color I’d (personally!) purchase the whole palette alone for. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. It wore beautifully for eight hours before starting to fade visibly.
Sherry Fairy is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that was incredibly blendable and easy to use, even if a touch powdery in the pan. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.
