BUXOM Fire & Frost Stone Cold Babe Eyeshadow Palette

BUXOM Fire & Frost Stone Cold Babe Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows split into six duos, plus a miniature sized Buxom Lash Mascara. (The eyeshadows are 0.03 oz., so the palette contains 0.36 oz. worth of eyeshadow specifically.) The palette itself is called “Fire & Frost.” The majority of shades in the palette are available individually, and the palette itself is the same size as the standard six-pan compacts that BUXOM sells for you to fill (you can pop these out and move them around). Some shades are nice, some shades are drier and harder to work with–most of them the new/exclusive shades–and overall, the palette didn’t seem as cohesive or as complementary as I would have expected. I found it difficult to do more than the same smoky eye over and over again with the way the shades looked on the skin. Three of the shades–Graphite Glam, Frosted Pewter, Sequin Sparkle–looked nearly the same when I applied them, partially due to the sheerer quality of them, but they were all this sort of sheer, medium/medium-dark gray.

Formula Overview

BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 each or $40 for six) is a powder eyeshadow that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $12 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place. The eyeshadow formula is one that works better in action than swatched, as several of the mattes seemed on the thinner, more powdery side, but then they would blend exceptionally well while adhering to bare skin–and they wouldn’t fade any faster than the more shimmery eyeshadows. The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

Value

  • Eyeshadow: $12.00 for 0.05 oz. or $240.00/oz.
  • Mascara: $20.00 for 0.37 oz. or $54.05/oz.
  • Set: $86.40 worth of eyeshadow, $10.81 worth of mascara
  • Total Value: $97.21

* When you purchase six shades and a six-pan palette, the cost is $40. The palette is $2 more, but you get a miniature mascara; plus, you get 12 shades instead of six, so you may derive more value in terms of per-shade cost if you are not someone who typically pans your eyeshadow.

Mink Magnet is a medium-dark bronze with hints of gray on top paired with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, that applied nicely to bare skin, though the texture was a bit looser and drier to the touch. The color wore well for eight hours on me before fading. This shade was actually better than the single I have. Too Faced Rum Raisin (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Trendsetter is a light-medium taupe with stronger gray tones and a neutral-to-cool undertone overall. It had a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage that tended to sheer out quickly as the consistency was thinner and dustier. I did not have better luck using it over a primer; it was just a dismal shade. The color started to fade after five hours. Kat Von D Lazarus (P) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Graceful (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Brains & Brawn (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Frisk (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Haute Couture is a dark, bronzy brown with warm, coppery undertones and a frosted sheen. It had intense pigmentation with a really smooth, lightly buttery texture that felt creamy going on and blended out beautifully. The color lasted just over eight and a half hours on me. MAC Collective Chic #2 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals Embellish (LE) is darker (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Bracken (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Sequin Sparkle is a light-medium gray-leaning taupe with warmer, copper sparkle that sat over a satin finish. The sparkle was looser, so it didn’t bind with the underlying color (little made it to the lid as a result), while the texture was firmer and difficult to work with. It had decent pigmentation, but it did not blend easily. This shade wore well for just over seven and a half hours. MAC Posh Pedigree #2 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Buxom Frosted Pewter (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Variation #2 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Stroke My Ego (P, $18.50) is more shimmery (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Jetsetter is a medium-dark taupe that leans quite gray with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-sheer, dusty, and difficult to build the color on the lid, even over primer. It was a real disappointment given how much better the individual version I have is (so much more pigmented!). It lasted for five hours before fading on me. Stila Fog (LE, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Two VIP #2 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Password (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Frosted Pewter appeared as a deep, smoldering gray with warmer undertones in the pan, but it was more like a subdued, medium gray with warm undertones applied. It lost a lot of its intensity from pan to skin, probably due to the lack of pigmentation and generally firm, stiff, and trouble-making texture. It tended to apply where it initially landed and not want to diffuse or budge from there. It lasted for seven and a half hours. Urban Decay Mushroom (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Buxom Sequin Sparkle (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tarte Slate Bells Ring (LE) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Graphite Glam is a dark gray with neutral undertones and a pearly finish. It appeared much, much richer and darker in the pan than swatched, where it was semi-sheer, faded, and dry. The texture was firm in the pan, which made it hard to apply evenly and blend it out with any semblance of soft, diffused edges. It lasted for seven hours on me. MAC Palatable (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #8 (P) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Graphite (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC A Waft of Grey #3 (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Uninhibited #2 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Stormy Sunset (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Chimney (LE, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

LBD is a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty, thinner texture that wasn’t as blendable as it could have been. It is workable, but it’ll take extra effort and was best applied in sheerer layers, then built up. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Giorgio Armani #01 (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Pandora (P) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Black Tie is a deep, inky black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cooler, teal and silver pearl. It had good color payoff with a fairly smooth texture, though it ran a touch dry and the edges looked draggy when I worked with them. With a little extra maneuvering, I was able to diffuse the edges to my satisfaction. It wore well for eight hours on me. Lancome My French #9 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). City Color Oh So Naughty (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Eternal Gold #5 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Burnt Anise (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).
