In this review I’ll be looking at Coloured Raine pressed eyeshadow singles in the shades Bay Breeze, Malibu, Blue Magic, and St. Germain Cocktail.
This blue eye look was created with Bay Breeze all over the lid, Malibu in the crease, Blue Magic in the outer eye corner, and St. Germain Cocktail on the brow bone. All shadows were applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Also used was Stila Stay All Day liquid liner in Midnight, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Post Punk (part of the Jean-Michel Basquiat collection), and Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara.
Coloured Raine Bay Breeze is a foiled pressed eyeshadow in a 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. The color is a lime green with a gold highlight, and the finish is shimmery.
I think seeing a shadow described as lime green makes it kind of intimidating to wear, but I found Bay Breeze surprisingly wearable. It has a gold highlight that let’s it blend well with other shades. The consistency of the shadow was smooth and creamy — it applied evenly and smoothly. This shadow was a little sheer, possibly due to it being a lighter color, so I had to apply two layers to get the coverage I wanted. However, it was capable of covering other darker shadows. Over primer I was able to get about 12 hours of wear.
A little sheer, but smooth application and good lasting power.
Coloured Raine Malibu is a foiled pressed eyeshdow in 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. The color is a shimmery turquoise with a silver highlight.
Like Bay Breeze, this shadow has a smooth, creamy texture that applied evenly and blended well. This shade had more pigmentation so I only needed to apply one layer to get the coverage I wanted. One thing that stood out to me was that this color did not stain skin, since many other similar colors I’ve tried have left a slight stain. Over primer I was able to get 12 hours of wear with this shadow.
Good pigmentation and smooth application that’s very blendable
Coloured Raine Blue Magic is a foiled pressed eyeshdow in 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. The color is a bold, shimmery cobalt blue with a silver highlight.
Blue Magic, like other Coloured Raine foiled shadows, has a smooth creamy texture. It applied very evenly and blended nicely despite being a fairly dark color. This shade had a lot of pigmentation, so a little went a long way — too much of it could easily overwhelm other shadows. Over primer I was able to get around 12 hours of wear.
Very pigmented and blendable with smooth application
Coloured Raine St. Germain Cocktail is a foiled pressed eyeshdow in 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. The color is a shimmery light beige, although I found this shade to have less shimmer than other Coloured Raine foiled eyeshadows.
St. Germain Cocktail is smooth like the other foiled Coloured Raine shadows, but I didn’t find it as creamy. I think I would describe this shadow as more of a satin finish than a foiled finish — it wasn’t nearly as shimmery. The pigmentation was also a little more sheer; I couldn’t easily cover darker shadows. That said, I think this shade works well as a brow bone highlight or a shadow to help blend out the edges of darker colors. Over primer, this shadow lasted about 10 hours.
A little more sheer with comparably less lasting power but good application
