The product is composed of a black cardboard palette with a magnetic closure. The palette is fully black outdoor with gold detailing. It is composed of two rows of 6 eye-shadows each and every. There is a not-so-big reflect within, which in truth, does now not make a distinction to me as I don’t use palette mirrors anyway. There isn’t any brush or applicator supplied. The colour names are discussed beneath each and every colour. The turn facet of the palette has the element main points. The good looks of the packaging lies within the beautiful sleeve that it is available in, which has this pretty development. I’d have cherished to have had the palette replicated on the real palette itself.
My Experience with Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Eyeshadow Palette:
Somewhat of historical past concerning the palette:
A snappy transient concerning the tumultuous historical past of this product. It used to be released against the top of 2016 as a restricted version palette. It led to rather an uproar. While everybody used to be nonetheless loving the warm-toned palette development initiated via ABH’s Modern Renaissance, this palette had a brand new tackle issues with its stunning heat tones coupled with even beautiful purples. It used to be won rather well via the wonder neighborhood; somewhat issues began spiralling when this restricted version palette in any case went out of inventory. Post unending pleas from shoppers, the palette used to be re-manufactured and re-launched to start with of 2017, via the emblem, with the transparent indication that the product is restricted version and is probably not re-manufactured submit this ultimate refill. However, as soon as it bought out once more, the client base went berserk AGAIN!> Finally, the emblem determined to make it an enduring product of their vary and re-manufactured it. The palette re-launched in its everlasting avatar in August this yr.
Coloured Raine eyeshadows are available quite a lot of finishes – mattes, foiled, shimmer and duochromes. However, for the palette, they saved issues relatively easy. As in keeping with the emblem, the palette has 6 mattes and six foiled sun shades. My overview, according to software, is ever so relatively other. To me, the palette turns out to have 6 friends, Five foiled and 1 duo-chrome colour.
So, allow us to talk about the eye-shadows within the palette in my opinion – we can move row-wise:
Crown: This is indexed as a steel colour, described via the emblem as a “pearlescent white with gold undertone.” To me, this can be a duochrome creamy white with an outdated gold to rose gold duochrome shift. Though it’ll seem like another pearly white colour in a palette, this actually is one of my favorite sun shades within the palette as a result of it’s so surprising! A touch of this for your interior nook and it virtually turns out like a mild has been switched on, with out it feeling stark white. The texture is creamy clean and simply blend-able. It will also be sheered out without difficulty and may just simply double up as a face highlighter colour. It might really feel dense in your finger nevertheless it does now not disintegrate or come onto the comb/finger in a thick layer. I like this colour!
Royal Highness: This is for sure a foiled colour – you’ll be able to make out the foiled sun shades from a distance. Described via the emblem as “metallic purple-toned taupe,” this can be a medium taupe brown colour with a definite pronounced steel sheen. The texture is once more creamy clean and relatively dense, however does now not really feel thick.
Your Majesty: Another foiled colour. This one is described via the emblem as a “rich metallic copper with gold reflect,” which is so apt. It is a medium copper with gold displays and a definite steel end. The gold displays are obviously visual within the eyeshadow as tiny debris of micro-glitter. And those do generally tend to create fall out over a duration of put on time. This might be diminished the use of a extra cheesy base or glitter glue. The texture is once more creamy clean, however under no circumstances thick – which I like as a result of that guarantees that it doesn’t intensify the feel of the surface.
Princess: This is a matte colour, described via the emblem as a “matte blushed pink.” It is a medium warm-toned crimson. The comfortable colour of crimson appears to be doing a spherical – together with the extra orange sun shades in maximum palettes. While maximum palettes generally tend to head for a dusty mauve crimson – possibly in a bid to permit for a transition colour for a relatively cooler eye glance, this one is in fact a heat crimson with a slight brown undertone, refreshingly other. The texture of the matte colour is clean and simply blendable. Also, it didn’t appear to kick up mud just like the ABH mattes.
Empress: Another matte colour, described via the emblem as a “vibrant matte orange.” It is a medium to darkish, warm-toned burnt orange – the quintessential colour in just about all palettes doing spherical at this time!! This one is clean and simply blend-able – really easy to paintings with.
Queen Mother: Back to a foiled/steel colour – described via the emblem as “metallic plum with lavender hues.” This is a steel plum colour. It will also be constructed to a dismal or sheered out to a extra medium. This one is creamy clean and blend-able. Though feeling dense, it applies in a skinny layer – with out including texture to the surface. There isn’t any micro-glitter on this.
Heir: A matte colour, described via the emblem as a “matte peach.” This is a mild, comfortable cream peach colour. This may be very comfortable and blend-able. It sheers out simply however will also be constructed as much as a extra opaque protection. I don’t imagine this as a con as a result of this side works neatly for the palette. The colour, if constructed up, generally is a matte spotlight for some. For others, it might be the comfortable translucent colour which one makes use of to set the attention primer or to mix and melt the sides.
Royal Prerogative: A matte colour, described the emblem as “terracotta.” It is a medium heat brown with orange undertones. It will also be constructed as much as a dismal. This once more is creamy clean and simply blend-able.
Noblewoman: A foiled colour, described via the emblem as a “metallic burgundy with purple undertones.” It is a medium heat burgundy pink colour. It seems to be extra pink within the pan (don’t know if it’s because of its proximity to Ladyship within the palette, but if carried out/swatched, that is for sure extra heat pink than pink. Richly pigmented, this colour is creamy clean and turns out dense, however does now not follow dense/crumbly.
Ladyship: A matte colour, described via the emblem as a “matte vivid purple.” It is a medium to darkish berry-toned pink. The texture of this one feels dry – particularly compared to leisure of the creamy matte sun shades within the palette. The really feel of the product isn’t all the time indicative of how it’ll carry out. However, on this case, it does. This colour is tougher to paintings with and takes extra effort to mix. The best method to paintings with this colour is to use it in skinny layers and mix out. If you move in additional intense in a single move – it’ll take a very long time to clean out and mix out seamlessly.
Duchess: Another matte colour, described via the emblem as “matte milk chocolate brown.” In the pan, it does seem like a milk chocolate brown however turns out to swatch darker and extra yellow toned. It is a dismal heat brown with yellow undertones. The consistency of this one too is creamy clean and blend-able.
Dethrone: The ultimate foiled colour, described via the emblem as “sparkling espresso with gold reflect.” This is a deep, heat brown colour. While this too has gold displays in it – in contrast to the colour “Your Majesty”, those gold displays are higher certain into the bottom. So, they don’t display up as loosely and lead to little to no fall out. The texture stays clean, creamy and simply blend-able.
Texture: I’ve mentioned the feel in brief whilst speaking about particular person sun shades. All sun shades, throughout finishes, have clean, creamy, simply blend-able texture – except for the colour Ladyship. I’m now not announcing that Ladyship is a dud, however sure, it does take a bit of care and a bit of extra effort. The leisure of the sun shades are extraordinarily simple to paintings with. They follow easily and mix out simply onto the surface. The colour “Your Majesty” may just do with a glitter glue to bind the gold displays higher. The different steel sun shades don’t actually want any additional effort. What is typically worrisome for me for my part is the feel of the steel sun shades. While I like dressed in steel shadows, I’m extraordinarily mindful of the wrinkles on my eyelids. And maximum manufacturers appear to be doing those creamy, crumbly, steel sun shades *cough* Juvia’s Palace *cough* which can be extraordinarily dense and have a tendency so as to add weight and texture to my lids. They glance completely stunning on more youthful folks with their unlined lids, however don’t appear to paintings for my extra mature pores and skin. So, every time I purchase one thing with steel/foiled sun shades, I have a tendency to be extraordinarily range on how it’ll carry out on my pores and skin. And I’m satisfied to percentage that those steel had been nightmare unfastened!
Pigmentation: Pigmentation for all sun shades is spot on. Most of the sun shades are richly pigmented. The logo suggests the use of the steel sun shades rainy, nevertheless it didn’t wish to do this because the intenseness of the colour used to be sufficiently vivid for me. However, if this is your jam, it’s essential to use the steel sun shades rainy. There are a pair of the lighter sun shades like “Crown” and “Heir” which will do with increase – to get the color within the pan. However, for those sun shades, I don’t take it to be a con as a result of that function in fact is helping within the general running of the palette and has been mentioned intimately whilst discussing the colour. That could be no comparability in any respect! The sun shades mix neatly and mesh neatly with the opposite eye shadows with out getting muddy.
Staying Power: Disclaimer – I follow eye shadows with a primer as a result of my lids are manner too oily. These shadows put on virtually the overall day – so about eight.Five-Nine hours. I didn’t come upon problems with the endurance of the shadows – except for for the colour “Your Majesty.” While the colour nonetheless stayed on my lids, the gold displays had quickly migrated to my cheeks and under-eye space! Not lovely!
Now a handy guide a rough have a look at the #EOTDs created with it:
Look 1 – This used to be my first try to use the palette, so clearly I reached for the nice and cozy burnt orange and the pink – the two sun shades, which right away clutch your consideration whilst you first open the palette.
Look 2: This used to be my 2d strive – consciously seeking to keep away from the orange whilst attempting to make use of extra of the metallics.
You can clearly create a complete matte glance too from the palette. It lets you create glance from day to nighttime – very easily.

Cons of Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Eyeshadow Palette:
- One matte and one steel colour want extra effort/care in software.
So, what was causing mass hysteria round this palette? Let’s ruin it down.
I feel it stemmed from the truth that the palette were given authentic rave opinions (even non-paid ones) around the good looks neighborhood, which clearly piqued the hobby of the group. Another massive level in its favour of the palette used to be clearly its color variety. The complete palette scene looked as if it would hinge on one heat palette after some other. I feel this palette captured folks’s hobby with the ongoing inclusion of the burnt orange, copper sun shades, and so on and but, get within the strong point with the addition of the ones pink and berry sun shades. So, individuals who had been loving the nice and cozy palette development – cherished it. And individuals who had been thru with the nice and cozy palette development – nonetheless cherished this as a result of of the pink/berry sun shades. The undeniable fact that this can be a just right combine of mattes and metallics. While some might love their mattes and others reside for steel – to create a complete complete glance, you do want each of them. The undeniable fact that it saved getting bought out added to the hype clearly. However, I wish to indicate something right here – the sell-out which took place each and every time, didn’t appear to be a advertising and marketing ploy By Coloured Raine – in contrast to that of another firms *cough* Kylie cosmetics *cough*; *cough* Morphe *cough*.
Digressing – How do you are making that out? When a logo says a product is bought out after which a brand new inventory comes up inside of a week-10 days – this is only a advertising and marketing ploy. Why? It takes far more time (learn months) to create a complete new batch of product and packaging. That does now not occur in per week. What occurs in per week is the emblem conserving onto inventory and liberating in small batches to create hype for the product. And why couldn’t an organization manufacture their product in batches which can be per week aside? Because that might be silly from the trade level of you. Meaning? It could be less expensive for the emblem to fabricate 2000 items of a product in a single move than to provide 2 separate batches of 1000 items 1 week aside. And this doesn’t even take the logistics into consideration, which may also have an effect on the economics of it. And if the product had were given bought out and the emblem used to be taken via wonder and installed a contemporary batch for processing (product and packaging) – it could now not be able to promote within the subsequent week or fortnight!
Back to the palette – The palette for sure lived upto the hype created round it. This palette is really stellar, each in phrases of high quality of product and the colour vary. This is one of probably the most stunning array of sun shades I’ve come throughout. I utterly counsel this. If you’re keen on heat sun shades, or purples or simply love brighter sun shades – purchasing this palette is an absolute no-brainer!
