Wayne Goss, building up his makeup repertoire, just released his second eyeshadow palette. In addition, Wayne added two more eyeliner pencils to his collection. First, you remember Wayne has a lipstick and lip gloss collection. Also, he has a blush collection. Even more, is Wayne’s first Eyeshadow Palette, Imperial Topaz. The Imperial Topaz palette is a warm, neutral eyeshadow palette. Now, the new release is the Wayne Goss Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette. And, it is very different from the first palette. The reason is, this is a cool-toned eyeshadow palette. And, Pearl Moonstone is neutral in its own way. However, it does have lots of grey shades. Additionally, Wayne added two new Essential Eye Kohl Pencils to his collection. Both of the shades, Sapphire Blue, and Deep Amethyst, are deep, dark shades.
You can only get the Wayne Goss Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette, and the two new Essential Kohl Pencils, on Beautylish. Also, the Luxury Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette (16.2g./0.57 oz.) costs $55. And, the Essential Khol Eye Pencil (1.14g/0.04 oz.) costs $14 each.
The Packaging For The Wayne Goss Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette and Essential Eye Pencils in Sapphire Blue, and Deep Amethyst
Inside, the compact is a glossy metallic black shade, with a sheen to it. Be ready to wipe off your fingerprints. First, the compact has a nice size mirror on one side., Wayne’s signature outer packaging is a metallic silver box, with white writing.
On the other side are the six, very large, eyeshadow pans. First, you can actually put your entire eyeshadow bush into the pan. Yes, they are that big! Even more, the pans are big enough to prevent you from creating that middle “well” that hits the pan first! This won’t happen with these pans. You can go around the outsides of these pans, since your brush fits in the pan!
Also, a quick word about the eye pencils. First, they are thin, and easy to work with. So, you can tightline your eye easily. Also, you can get the point into the lash line.
Also, the bottom of each pencil is a color coded. As a result, you won’t have to guess which color is the one you are looking for. Also, the pencils have a lid, so they are protected. And, you can throw them in your handbag, or makeup bag!
One thing you will need, is a pencil sharpener.
Wayne Goss Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette and Essential Eye Pencils in Sapphire Blue, and Deep Amethyst : Formulas
First, the formula is more eyeshadow than a pan of pigment. Therefore, there is a softness to it. As a result, the shadows are very buildable. They are not too powdery. Also, they aren’t too creamy! Yep, they are in the Goldilocks Zone, because they are just right! As a result, these shadows will perform well for you.
So, I love the soft wash of color. For one thing, it makes the shadows more versatile, and more customizable. Let’s face it. It is not that easy to use a hyper-pigmented palette, even if the color payoff is exciting! Instead, it is better to build with these refined shadows.
Wayne calls it soft blend technology, which makes the shadows not just blend well, but they actually meld, and melt into each other. Maybe it is because the formula is infused with smooth-blend emollients!
Last of all, the Essential Kohl Pencils are classic kohl pencils with a twist. For one thing, they are softer than most pencils. So, you can use them as a base, all over your eyelids. Also, you can use the pencils to tightline you water lines. They are so creamy, they feel good on your eyes.
The Wayne Goss Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette Shades and The Essential Eye Pencils Shades
There are six eyeshadow shades in the Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette. Two shades have a satin finish. Three shades have a matte finish. And the last shade has a Celestial, sparkling finish. Also, the shades have no names. Although, they are numbered!
First, Shade 01, a light peach shade, has a satin finish. One, the peach satin shade is on the light side. Although, I love this shade all over your eyelids, as a base shade. Also, this is the only shade in this palette that can be worn as a highlighter. Therefore, wear it on your brow. bones. And, you can wear it, lightly, on the inner corners of your eyes. However, if you just want to wear a touch of makeup, for a no-makeup-makeup.
Next, Shade 02, a grey shade with a deep purple undertone, has a matte finish. First, I love this shade in your crease. Also, this is the perfect shade to wear to smoke out your eyes. Or, wear this purple-grey shade on the outer third of your eyelids, and the outer corners of your eyes, Finally, use the black shade (03) first, on the outer corners and outer third of your eyes, then wear shade 02 on top for an even smokier look.
Then (03) the blackest black shade, has a matte finish. According to Wayne, Black is the most important shadow in this, or any eyeshadow palette. In fact, from here on in, Wayne is including a black shade in all future palettes.
First, black does more for your eye than any other color. It makes your eye stand out. In fact, when you push black shadow into your lash line, your eyes will stand out even without mascara! As a result, black won’t use up any of your lid space. Therefore, it maximizes your lid space for other colors you’ll want to use.
Next, black deepens and adds depth to any eye color.
Also important, Black smokes out any other shade.
Also, 04, a medium grey shade with blue undertones, has a matte finish.Again, I would wear this shade on the outer corners of my eyes. Even more, wear this blue/grey shade in your crease, and line your lower lash lines with 04. A quick word about 02, and 04, I love that these shades are not flat grey shades. Instead, Wayne gave these shades subtle undertones. In this ay, the shades become interesting, and more dimensional.
Next, 05, a silver shade, has a satin finish. Wear this silver satin shade in your crease, and on your eyelids. Then, line your lower lash lines with this silver shade. Also, wear it on your eyelids, over the black shade, to create a new, deeper shade of silver.
Last, 06, a silvery blue shade, has a Celestial Sparkling Finish. Although, unlike Wayne’s Celestial Shade in his Imperial Topaz Palette, which was sheer, this sparkling shade is not so sheer. Actually, it is more opaque. It definitely covers your skin. So, it isn’t quite the sheer topper that you know. However, you can still wear this shade on top of another shade. For example, I am in love with this shade over the matte black shade. It creates a dark grey sparkling shade, with silver reflects. Or, wear )6 on its own. So, wear it all over your eyelids. You can also wear it in your crease. Line your lower lash lines with this shade.
The Essential Kohl Eyeshadow Shades
Deep Amethyst, a deep, dark purple shade, has a matte finish.
Blue Sapphire, a deep, dark blue shade, has a matte finish.
Both of these eyeliners are Kohl, not gel. Therefore, they apply easily to your eyes. Also, they work well when you tightline your eyes. Even more, the khols eyeliners are easy to smudge out. Last, they are really thin, unlike a gel eyeliner. As a result, they are easy to do intricate lines, thin lines, and tight lines.
My Final Thoughts On The Wayne Goss Pearl Moonstone Eyeshadow Palette and Essential Kohl Eyeliner Pencils…….
First of all, when I saw the palette online, I wasn’t sure it would be something I would like. For one reason, I am not often in cool-toned eyeshadows. Also, I saw three grey shades, and thought yuck. Well, shame on me. The peach satin and the Celestial Blue Sparkle shades were the only two shades I thought I would like. Therefore, when I received my palette, I was nervous opening it.
I have to admit, I was so wrong. Wayne doesn’t disappoint. The two grey shades are beautiful because Wayne made them with undertones, one with purple, the other with blue (very much like the two Kohl Eyeliners in this collection. All of the shades are beautiful. All skin tones, and all ages can wear these gorgeous shadows.
The thing I like most about this palette is it is different from anything I own. I always gravitate to the browns, rusts, and reds. This palette is perfect for winter. You can use it for a light daytime look. Or, add the black shade, and make your eyeshadows really intense, for an amazing nighttime look!
