Edward Bess Over the Moon Review and Swatches

Edward Bess Eyeshadow Palettes

Edward Bess Eyeshadow Palette in Over the Moon ($68) is a soft combination of cool tones that create a soft, foolproof smokey eye. Like Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss and Sun and Stars that were also just released, the pigmentation is soft, wearable, and long-wearing over a base.

Over the Moon has an overall matte impression, although a closer look shows that there is a tiny bit of shimmer in some of the shades. This shimmer is beyond subtle, adding a touch of dimension but no obvious sparkle once the powder is applied.

These shades applied beautifully with the Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush, or any with a similar shape. Certainly the shadows work well with more precise brushes, and blend beautifully. However, Liz and I found that it took very little time and care to give a polished appearance effortlessly.

The colors include the same matte cream base that appears in the other palettes. The 2nd color Swatches:

Another set of swatches:

Liz did this very quick eye with the Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush.  We found that the colors were quite dark and dramatic, yet not at all heavy or overbearing. Rather, Over the Moon gave a very flattering, soft smoke impression.

Liz used the three lightest shades only to get this soft and pretty look. 

As you can see, although Liz didn’t dig into the deepest mauve shade, the other colors give a very cool mauve-gray impression. Overall, this eye took less than a minute and gave a very easy, smokey look.
