Edward Bess has recently released three new eyeshadow palettes, Over the Moon, Cosmic Bliss, and Sun and Stars ($68 each). Each offers a selection of lovely neutral shades with gorgeous pigmentation and very smooth blendability.
These are slim glossy black mirrored palettes packed with tiny brushes (one end is a sponge, the other a brush). I found that these applied beautifully with Edward Bess’ Luxury Eye Brush (pictured here). This review is for Sun and Stars, a lovely selection of a matte neutral base shade, a coppery brown, a khaki-toned taupe, and a lovely soft black.
I’ve worn this over Laura Mercier’s Eye Basic in Linen and got all-day wear. I used the middle two shads side-by-side on my lid, with the black as a liner. The lightest shade, which is a soft neutral that nearly matches my skin tone, was placed in my inner corner. So easy, it’s perfect for those times when you want to look confident and effortlessly perfect.
The lightest shade is matte, and the other three have a touch of shimmer. This gives a touch of glow on the lid, without leaving any obvious sparkle.

So far, I love it. This price point is similar to Edward Bess’ Soft Smoke Palette (which I still use quite frequently). I found that the quality of Sun and Stars eyeshadows is remarkably similar to the Edward Bess eyeshadow singles. Here’s Liz’s eye look, using only the three lightest shades (blush is Tom Ford Wicked):
Bottom line: Lovely, effortless and perfect. The colors of all three are so universal. The palettes are so easy to use, and give a gorgeous, polished and flattering eye. These are finely milled and blended like a dream. Over my eyeshadow base, I had all-day beautiful wear.
