Shea Moisture Volcanic Stone Eyeshadow Palette Review

Shea Moisture Volcanic Stone Eyeshadow Palette. Five Product Face.

Today I'll be reviewing Shea Moisture's Volcanic Stone Mineral Eyeshadow Palette ($13). It's an affordable eyeshadow palette which features six cool toned shadows made from mostly natural ingredients.

When Shea Moisture came out with makeup a few years ago I picked up a few items here and there, but didn't really dive deep into the products. Their first eyeshadows were pans that could be placed in a magnetic palette (which they sold) or a small compact (also sold separately). When their cosmetic line entered Ulta they formulated four eyeshadow palettes, which for my lifestyle is a much better way to offer product. As much as I like seeing different product formats, I'm just OVER single pans and fillable palettes. But maybe that's just me.

Shea Moisture is a black-owned beauty brand, and their line and shade range caters to darker skin tones, so I'm wasn't surprised that the shadows are super pigmented. I wouldn't exactly called them "buttery", but they do pack a punch. They last on my eyes all day and aside from one of the colors, there is no noticeable fall out. The brand labels this as a wet/dry palette, but I didn't try any of them wet, as I just never wear my shadows wet. Who has time for that?

The Shades.

Shea Moisture Volcanic Stone Mineral Eye Shadow Palette Swatches on Dark Skin. Five Product Face.

Rock Crystal - a shimmery pure white that has noticeable glitter particles and is fallout hell.

Druzy - a subtle shimmer light peach that is great to highlight the eyes.

Sunstone - a light mauve that is super smooth but probably won't show up on anyone darker than me.

Rechelle - a sparkly charcoal with silver shimmer.

Lanaia - a frosty medium-dark purple that is pigmented but still must be layered for even color payoff.

Onyx - a very pigmented matte black that is great for the outer corner or as an eyeliner.

I wish that they would have included a darker mauve or plummy brown instead of the sparkly white Rock Crystal shade.  I used Sunstone as a transition shade, but I don't think that it would work well on someone with deeper skin.
