Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette - Review, Photos & Swatches


Hi Beauties!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has recently launched a new eyeshadow palette, Moroccan Spice.  This is my first time trying the brands eyeshadows.  This palette features 16 Moroccan inspired shades with warm neutrals and pops of colour.  There is a mix of matte, satin, pearl, metallic and shimmer finishes.  According to the brand the shadows are said to be velvety-smooth, weightless, buildable, and stays put without creasing.  The Moroccan Spice retails for $69 CAD and $59 USD at Sephora.


The navy packaging is beautiful with colourful smoke clouds.  It's thin and lightweight; perfect for travel.  On the downside, the palette easily collects fingerprints on the cover.  Included inside is a sizable mirror and the shades names are on the back of the palette.  I would have prefered if they were printed inside the palette.  I like the colour assortment of the eyeshadows shades.  The layout is visually appealing to me however I didn't find the application of them to be impressive.  The mattes are slightly dry and blend into each other while looking muddy.  With the exception of shade Cumin Get It, the mattes swatched patchily.  The shimmers are soft in texture.  Mirage and Sahara Stunna are pretty but subtle for more simple eye looks.  They also take some building with a wet brush but lose the sparkle throughout the day.  Ca$ablanca, Marrakush and Desert Baked are more pigmented and are my top picks.  I use my fingertips with those shades for the optimum application.  The stain and pearl shades, Evil Genie, Souq It 2 Me and Nuts N Dates are richly pigmented.  I find the shadows work best with the Fenty Pro Filt'r Amplifying Eye Primer because it's tacky and the mattes need some adhering otherwise they sheer out.  The shadows lasted 7-8 hours before fading.


Shade Descriptions:

  • Moโ€™rockin Ice (iridescent icy pink with pink shimmer)
  • Mirage (metallic rosy bronze)
  • Ca$ablanca (peach gold with gold shimmer) 
  • Marrakush (metallic green gold)
  • Shisha Smoke (matte blue gray)
  • Sahara Stunna (soft pink gold pearl)
  • Quicksand (satin papaya)
  • Desert Baked (metallic copper bronze)
  • Evil Genie (turquoise pearl)
  • Fez Up (matte plum)
  • Saffron (matte brick red)
  • Cumin Get It (matte terracotta) 
  • Souq It 2 Me (satin smoky navy)
  • Nuts N Dates (satin eggplant)
  • Henna Sea (matte cocoa brown)
  • Spice Trip (matte burnt sienna)

Overall,  I think the Morrocan Spice palette has a beautiful array of colours and are good for soft glam and everyday looks.  You can pull off a sultry look as well with the blue and grey shades.  For the price point, I would want the matte shadows to perform much better with more pigmentation.  The shadows should also perform good with all primers and not just the brands.  I do like the metallic and pearl shades, they're pigmented and blend well.
