Terra Moons Metallic Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 3 of 4)

by Jeremy


Terra Moons Stormy Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened blue base with a brighter, more contrasting blue-teal shimmer that gives it a smooth, pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly emollient texture that was thin (but not in the wrong 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 using a “glitter primer” due to the finish.

I found that some matte shades were more noticeably powdery than others, but whether there was a little br more noticeable powderiness depended on the phantom. The neon shades were the most granular and most complicated 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 did vary a lot of shade by shade. The darker and less neon matte shades performed the best for me–more pigmentation, better blendability, easier to work with, and more consistent.

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