Formula Overview

$8.00/0.05 oz. – $160.00 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 to use a “glitter primer” due to the finish.

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

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

Ascension

Terra Moons Ascension Matte Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be nearly imperceptible (in person) pearl throughout, which helped the product blend and adhere better.

Among the Stars

Terra Moons Among the Stars Matte Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, lemony-lime with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was a slightly greener take on “highlighter yellow.” Neons tend to have issues in coverage, application, and texture, and while this felt improved from past neons by the brand, it was still prone to typical problems of neon shades.

  • Medium, somewhat buildable pigmentation
  • Somewhat powdery, airier, prone to fallout
  • Use with a lighter hand, blendable
  • Long-wearing (8-9 hours)
  • Stained after removal
