While I was on the hunt for a good black eyeshadow I came accross the brand Coloured Raine.
Once I did some research on the brand I got really excited to try some of their products and purchased some eyeshadows… and more eyeshadows… and more eyeshadows.

I already did a review on their Queen Of Hearts palette so now I really want to share my opinion on the single eyeshadows as well.

FORMULA:

The Coloured Raine single eyeshadows are very creamy! They are so easy and smooth to apply. And also very easy to blend! The pigmentation on these eyeshadows is amazing as well. Overall I really don’t have anything bad to say about the formula.

But I noticed that throughout the day some foiled eyeshadows can crease. Most times I use the Tarte shape tape concealer as my eyeshadow base (and set it with some powder) and after maybe 5 hours or so I noticed that it starts creasing. But if you lightly tap over the eyelids (with your finger or a brush) you can fix that really quickly.
Also if I know I need my eyeshadow to last long I like to use a cream eyeshadow as a second base and then it won’t crease at all. The eyeshadows are so pigmented that you really don’t need a lot of product. So if you don’t apply that much it won’t crease that easily, too.

Like I said the pigmentation of these eyeshadows is amazing! But I want to mention that the blue eyeshadow ‘Blue Magic’ is a little less pigmented than the other ones. It is still great – I just want to mention that.

PROS:

  • Affordable price
  • Very creamy
  • Great blendability
  • Very pigmented

CONS:

  • Foiled eyeshadows can crease (but easily fixed with a good base)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Coloured Raine eyeshadows quickly became one of my favorite (if not my favorite) eyeshadow brands.
The formula is perfect.
I would 100% recommend their eyeshadows.

Also my hunt for a good black eyeshadow is over! The shade  ‘Black Moon’ really is perfect!
Now my favorite black eyeshadows are: Coloured Raine ‘Black Moon’, Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Noir’, Urban Decay ‘Blackout’ and Natasha Denona ‘Blackest Black’.
The Coloured Raine black eyeshadow is the most affordable one of them so I really recommend it.
