In this review I’ll be looking at Coloured Raine eyeshadow singles in the shades Pumpkin Pie, Downtown, Passion, and Superstar.
A sunset eye created with Pumpkin Pie all over the lid, Downtown in the crease, Passion in the outer eye corner, and Superstar in the inner corner. Coloured Raine St. Germain Cocktail (covered in Coloured Raine Eyeshadow Singles Review Part 1) was used on the brow bone. All eyeshadows were applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Also used was Urban Decay liquid eyeliner pen in Perversion and Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara.
Coloured Raine Pumpkin Pie is a satin pressed eyeshadow in a 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. Coloured Raine describes this shade as “satin with subtle hints of gold reflex.” The color is a golden orange with a little shimmer.
When applied, this shade is a gorgeous golden orange. However, getting the shadow to apply is a little difficult. This shadow is particularly susceptible to getting hard pan, so I had to scrape off the top layer. Once I scraped off the layer and dipped into it with a fluffy brush, it started getting hard pan again. Because of this issue, it was hard for me to pick up enough shadow to get good coverage and pigmentation. Aside from these issues, the color is lovely, and it last me about 10 hours with primer.
Nice when it applies correctly, but prone to getting hard pan and lacks pigmentation
Coloured Raine Downtown is a foiled pressed eyeshadow in a 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. The color is a shimmery copper with a golden highlight.
The consistency of this shadow is very smooth and buttery, almost creamy. It had great pigmentation, only requiring one layer to reach opacity, and blended nicely. There was some fallout when I applied, particularly when using a fluffier brush, but there was no fallout once I had it adhered to my lid. With primer, this shadow lasted me about 12 hours.
Pigmented and smooth but a little prone to fallout
Coloured Raine Passion is a foiled pressed eyeshadow in a 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. The color is a shimmery warm red-purple, almost magenta.
Like Downtown, this shadow has a buttery smooth, almost creamy consistency that applies evenly on the lid. It blended well regardless of the brush I used and even when applying with my fingers. This shade has really good pigmentation, and a little shadow can go a long way. I didn’t encounter too much fallout, even when applying. With primer, this shadow lasted about 12 hours.
Pigmented and smooth with little fallout
Coloured Raine Superstar is a foiled pressed eyeshadow in a 26 mm pan that sells for $6.99USD on Coloured Raine’s website. This shadow is a bright yellow-gold with a strong shimmer.
Like other Coloured Raine foiled shadows, this shade had a smooth, creamy texture that applied smoothly and evenly. This shadow was quite pigmented and bright — it could easily cover darker shadows and really popped as an inner corner highlight. I didn’t really encounter fallout with this shadow during application or after. With primer, this shadow lasted about 12 hours.
Bright and pigmented with little fallout
