Coloured Raine eyeshadow singles come in a variety of colors and finishes including foiled, satin, and matte. All eyeshadows are pressed in 26 mm metal pans.

Coloured Raine eyeshadow singles retail for $6.99USD and can be found here.

Many of these swatches were performed over an eyeshadow primer. While not necessary for all the colors to apply well and look great, generally the colors appear more vibrant and apply smoother with primer. Glitter eyeshadow primer can be used with the foiled shades to really make the shimmer stand out, but generally they perform just as well with regular primer or even no primer at all.

Eyeshadow shades are listed in alphabetical order.


Angel Face

Angel Face is a light peach with a matte finish. Swatched on eyelid over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. This shade will be very similar to skin tone for light to light-medium skin tones, making it a good shade for a base color or to blend out other colors. The shadow does have enough pigment to show on darker skin tones as well. While this shade is visible without primer, it applies much smoother and more visibly with primer.
