Wayne Goss Imperial Topaz Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Imperial Topaz

Wayne Goss Imperial Topaz The Luxurious Eye Palette ($55.00 for 0.57 oz.) contains six shades housed in a shiny, black palette with a mirror. There are three shimmery shades, one sparkly shade, and two matte shades. It’s a warmer-toned impartial palette with a cooler-toned black. I’ve at all times maintained that you simply by no means know when somebody is available in the market for the proper [insert color story here] palette so what’s boring to at least one is thrilling to a different… and so long as it’s prime quality, I’m completely satisfied to have extra selection. The palette was first rate, however it wasn’t as blendable or as foolproof to work with as marketed, and as there are a ton of heat impartial palettes accessible, there are such a lot of others I’d attain for over this.

I’m a fan of the model’s brushes, and I believe the model did an excellent job of bringing Japanese brushes into the extra mainstream with a extra streamlined vary of accessible shapes/sizes at a good value level, so I positively wasn’t anticipating to be left dissatisfied with this launch. I used to be anticipating actually delicate, easy, and blendable eyeshadows with extra ethereal shimmers–seamless, virtually melted for a luminous sheen–and foolproof, ultra-blendable matte shades–and people had been my takeaways from the outline on the level of sale in addition to the announcement video.

The primary two shimmers felt virtually spongy–delicate–however they had been extra frosted than seamless as anticipated based mostly on the model’s advertising and marketing. The matte shades might have been extra blendable, whereas the sparkly shade had a good quantity of fallout (even when used with a fingertip). One of many shimmers was a bit thinner and sheerer, so it was tougher to construct up. They lasted decently on my eye (about eight hours). The shades, besides the black shade, coordinated properly collectively, however the first and sixth shade are very related in colour (completely different in end), and the palette could be extra versatile in the event that they overlapped much less.

The palette incorporates larger-than-average portions of every shade (virtually 0.10 oz. whereas most eyeshadows are 0.05 oz. when bought individually or 0.03 to 0.04 oz. in a bigger palette). The reasoning given for this was as a result of smaller eyeshadows are tougher to get one’s brush in, however I’ve not had that challenge with most eyeshadow pans within the 0.03 oz. (City Decay Bare palette pans for reference) to 0.05 oz. measurement (that’s a MAC or City Decay single eyeshadow for reference). I believe if you get to extra dime-sized shades it may be an issue in the event that they’re positioned shut collectively.

The second reasoning was this manner you gained’t see an “ugly properly” or see the pan that emerges from repeated use of the product, which was a head-scratcher. Most of us are buying make-up to truly use it, and make-up is a consumable merchandise–there’s a shelf life!–and the business has made some actions into going mini and travel-sized to drop costs. However, if you happen to do use these eyeshadows each day, why would you… not get a dip or a properly or ultimately see pan? It doesn’t go on without end!

Per the model, each palette sooner or later will comprise the identical black eyeshadow. I believe this made for an fascinating dialogue (we had one on the Temptalia Discord when it was introduced earlier, and I’ve seen it mentioned by readers right here in addition to on my social media platforms). A fantastic matte, black eyeshadow is a good device to have within the arsenal, however I don’t know if you happen to’ve ever tried to complete a single eyeshadow… however it takes some dedication. It nonetheless took me over a yr to get by way of a single eyeshadow that was solely 0.05 oz. that I used to fill in my brows virtually each day.

If the format had extra shades, I might see the inclusion of an ordinary black eyeshadow making extra sense, however I believe in a palette of six, the black eyeshadow provides a whole lot of distinction in undertone and depth that truly makes it tougher to include it and hold the look hotter and browner as the opposite 5 shades recommend. It might have made much more sense to incorporate a deeper shade in every colour story however to coordinate it with the opposite shades; on this palette, a extremely deep red-brown or virtually burgundy might have gone a good distance.

Alternatively, the black eyeshadow might be the seventh shade organized in an extended, slender pan that went alongside the suitable edge (spanning two shades), which might lend itself to lining (which is one method advocated) in addition to increase or darkening shades (the place you’d probably use smaller, extra exact brushes). Guerlain did one thing like this beforehand.

I’ll additionally say that it’s only a so-so black eyeshadow for one thing that’s mega-sized and meant to be included in each palette. I favored that it wasn’t powdery–it was firmer and thinner in comparison with the opposite matte shades within the palette–so there wasn’t fallout to fret about, and it was simpler to select up much less to construct up. The problem was that it wasn’t very blendable, and the shade skipped when utilized. It was rather a lot simpler to layer the matte brown eyeshadow over the black to get a softer, extra subtle edge.

Additionally, I famous that the model said these shouldn’t be used moist–you don’t usually see that warning/suggestion, so I believed I’d move that alongside!
