| Review | RÓEN Beauty Mood 4 Ever Eye Shadow Palette


Glitter, gloss, and sparkle... I can never get enough of these unique eyeshadows! With minimal makeup on the rise and trending in the beauty industry, this product fits into this trend perfectly. It is a palette made for finger painitng but this formula really isn't for everyone. I have reviews of the previous palettes here. If you're looking for something long wearing and that won't crease, this isn't the review for you but if you  love an easy and effortless glossy look, you may want to consider continuing to read this.

The RÓEN Beauty Mood 4 Ever Eye Shadow Palette retails for $46.00 USD and is available at RÓEN Beauty. Housed in RÓEN's iconic compact, slim, and sleek reflective compact, this palette is lightweight and easy to travel with. The compact is magnetic, which adds to the luxury of the packaging. The compact is very reflective for being made of plastic and it is prone to fingerprints and scratches. The palette comes with a soft fuzzy white dust pouch, which I really don't use. It's always a nice touch but I feel like it would be easier to wipe and clean the compact than to have a white fabric cover on it.

SHADES 

This palette was designed to contain all very wearable shades to flatter any skin tone. It is supposed to be the palette you reach for every day and one that goes with any outfit. It is designed to be the "little black dress" of eye makeup and I think they really succeeded! The shades in this palette are all incredibly versatile and wearable for any skin tone, makeup style, and built for any skill level to successfully apply it. The shades appear much pinker and rosier in person than in photos but when applied to the skin the shades are more neutral looking. The shades in this palette are:

Crema (top left) - This shade is a very sheer and smooth warm champagne beige shade with very fine flecks of pink and copper pearl. This shade is not nearly as shimmery as the others and has more of a pearl.

Elated (top right) - This shade has a warm copper base bit really strong pink reflective shimmers throughout. 

Impressions (bottom left) - This shade is a cool champagne-taupe with blue and silver reflects throughout. This shade is very unique and works with many different looks. 

Toasty (bottom right) - This shade is a rich warm copper with strong pink reflects and some gold reflects throughout. This shade has the richest pigment and is the boldest color.

COMPARISON SWATCHES

Here is the Mood 4 Ever Eyeshadow Palette compared to the 11:11 palette. You can see the 11:11 palette had a much deeper overall color selection but the texture of all the shades is very shimmery and some are chunky shimmers. While beautiful, these chunkier shimmers are not for everyone. I think the Mood 4 Ever palette has a much more refined and universally appealing texture.

FORMULA 

Like I stated at the beginning of this review, this is a formula that isn't for everyone. This formula is between a balm and a gloss with pigment and shimmers suspended throughout the formula. When you run your fingers over the eyeshadows, the texture feels quite firm but the surface is still emollient. When you run your finger over the surface, you will pick up a thin layer of eyeshadow.

The pigment is sheer but very buildable. You can actually get a lot of pigment out of these eyeshadows despite them being so emollient and glossy. The pigment builds but to be noticeable and distinct shades on the lid. I think that's what makes this formula so unique because these eyeshadows can work together to create a cohesive look and aren't just a glossy lid shade.  However, it also plays very well with other formulas. While these are very emollient, these eyeshadows don't migrate a whole lot, they tend to stay where you place them but they will crease. Yes, I know that does count as migrating but I meant migrating in the sense that you don't end up with shimmers under your eyes or up in your eyebrows.

The formula has a very slight tackiness to it that allows the pigments to stay where they are placed. However, the shadows are still very smooth and creamy. You can easily swipe them on with your finger or a brush. I find that fingers tend to work best, especially if you are trying to build the color because it doesn't remove some of the eyeshadow already on the skin. 

The nice thing about this cream formula is that you can just fix the creased parts with your finger but they are really meant to create a very "lived-in" kind of eyeshadow look. These shadows layer quite well on top of one another or with powder eyeshadows. What I do notice is that by about 4 or 5 hours the base color in these eyeshadows will fade and you tend to be left with mostly the glitter. This occurs more often in shades with a lot of larger shimmer particles. The eyeshadows in this particular palette are not as glittery or contain slightly finer shimmers, which is not only easier tot work with but look better throughout the day.

This formula is also touted as a "clean" formula, which means there are very minimal to no chemicals or "bad" ingredients. I find that this formula is very comfortable and non-irritating to my sensitive eyes, which is what I really appreciate about this clean formula.

THE LOOK 

I must say, the camera doesn't do this palette justice. It looks just like a glossy sparkle on the lids but it doesn't pick up its subtle and nuanced reflects. This is definitely a palette that looks much better in person than it doesn't in pictures unless you have a super hi-definition camera. However, you can get an idea of how it looks on the eyes here. 

I created this look using Elated in the crease, Impressions on the middle to the outer corner of the lid, Crema on the inner corner, and for definition along the outer lashline, I applied Toasty.

FINAL THOUGHTS 

This palette is by far, my favorite out of al the palettes in the current range. The shades are much more wearable and not nearly as glittery as some from the previous palettes. This makes the quad effortless, easy to wear, and easy to use. I feel like these shades really do represent my every day mood and I love it's versatility. I have found myself constantly reaching for it when I want a quick and easy look but I also love pairing it with other cream and powder eyeshadows. While not everyone is going to love this formula, I think it's excellent for what it is and it is also an incredibly unique formula. If you love a glossy eye look, you're going to love these eyeshadows! The beautiful glistening effect they offer and the easy to use formula makes it a real winner! I really do recommend these eyeshadow palettes and I believe they are worth the luxury price.
