Wayne Goss Imperial Topaz Eyeshadow Palette Overview & Swatches

Imperial Topaz

Wayne Goss Imperial Topaz The Luxurious Eye Palette ($55.00 for zero.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 all the time maintained that you just by no means know when somebody is out there for the right [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 happy to have extra selection. The palette was first rate, nevertheless it wasn’t as blendable or as foolproof to work with as marketed, and as there are a ton of heat impartial palettes obtainable, 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 incredible job of bringing Japanese brushes into the extra mainstream with a extra streamlined vary of accessible shapes/sizes at an honest worth level, so I positively wasn’t anticipating to be left disillusioned with this launch. I used to be anticipating actually comfortable, clean, and blendable eyeshadows with extra ethereal shimmers–seamless, virtually melted for a luminous sheen–and foolproof, ultra-blendable matte shades–and people have been my takeaways from the outline on the level of sale in addition to the announcement video.

The primary two shimmers felt virtually spongy–comfortable–however they have been extra frosted than seamless as anticipated based mostly on the model’s advertising. 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 more durable to construct up. They lasted decently on my eye (about eight hours). The shades, besides the black shade, coordinated nicely collectively, however the first and sixth shade are very related in colour (completely different in end), and the palette can be extra versatile in the event that they overlapped much less.

The palette accommodates larger-than-average portions of every shade (virtually zero.10 oz. whereas most eyeshadows are zero.05 oz. when offered individually or zero.03 to zero.04 oz. in a bigger palette). The reasoning given for this was as a result of smaller eyeshadows are more durable to get one’s brush in, however I’ve not had that subject with most eyeshadow pans within the zero.03 oz. (City Decay Bare palette pans for reference) to zero.05 oz. dimension (that’s a MAC or City Decay single eyeshadow for reference). I believe whenever 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 received’t see an “ugly nicely” 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, when you do use these eyeshadows every day, why would you… not get a dip or a nicely or finally see pan? It doesn’t go on endlessly!

Per the model, each palette sooner or later will include the identical black eyeshadow. I believe this made for an attention-grabbing 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 terrific matte, black eyeshadow is a superb instrument to have within the arsenal, however I don’t know when you’ve ever tried to complete a single eyeshadow… nevertheless it takes some dedication. It nonetheless took me over a yr to get by way of a single eyeshadow that was solely zero.05 oz. that I used to fill in my brows virtually every day.

If the format had extra shades, I might see the inclusion of a regular black eyeshadow making extra sense, however I believe in a palette of six, the black eyeshadow provides quite a lot of distinction in undertone and depth that really makes it more durable to include it and maintain the look hotter and browner as the opposite 5 shades recommend. It could 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 a protracted, slim pan that went alongside the appropriate 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 doubtless 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 preferred 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 difficulty was that it wasn’t very blendable, and the shade skipped when utilized. It was lots simpler to layer the matte brown eyeshadow over the black to get a softer, extra subtle edge.

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