Terra Moons Metallic Eyeshadows Opinions & Swatches (Half three of 4)

Stormy

Terra Moons Stormy Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened blue base with brighter, more contrasting blue-teal shimmer that gave it a smooth, pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly emollient texture that was thin (but not in a bad way, as it wasn’t powdery or dry!) that had exceptional adhesion to bare skin. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.05 oz. – $120.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “blendable” and “pigmented” with “a bit of kick up” when used due to being “pressed by hand.” Some shades come with “additional information” such as being sheerer on the brand’s website (for that particular shade) or to use a “glitter primer” due to the finish.

I found that some matte shades were more noticeably powdery than others, but whether there was just a little bit of powderiness or more noticeable powderiness really depended on a shade. The neon shades were the most powdery and hardest to work with on their own; some had more specific tips/guidance on how to work with them, which I felt was great for disclosure, but it could get hard to remember what shade needs to be applied in such and such fashion since it really did vary a lot shade by shade. The darker and less neon matte shades tended to perform the best for me–more pigmentation, better blendability, and were easier to work with and were more consistent.

Most shades–matte and more shimmery–were pigmented, easy to blend, and applied well to bare skin. They lasted between seven and eight hours with most closer to eight hours before fading (more of the mattes) or creasing (some of the more intense metallics).

Terra Moons Dark Matter Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a warmer, reddish-brown base with shimmer that shifted between blue and purple paired with a metallic finish. It had rich color coverage with a soft, more loosely-pressed consistency that needed to be used with a lighter hand to avoid fallout or dislodging too much product.

Moon Lily

Terra Moons Moon Lily Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a darker, cool lavender with an intense, metallic finish. The consistency was more emollient, almost cream-like, but it wasn’t overly thick, so it applied evenly and sat flatteringly on my skin without emphasizing lid texture. It had opaque pigmentation that wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Terra Moons Into the Ocean Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen.
