Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow

Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with just a hint of gray and a high-frost finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, creamy, and extremely blendable. It wore well for nine hours on me. Ardency Inn Rose Gold (P, $21.00) is more mauve. Makeup Geek Night Life (P, $6.99) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #3 (LE) is a touch lighter. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #1 (P) is darker, cooler-toned. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is less shimmery, cooler-toned. Ulta Taupe (P, $10.00) is less shimmery. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P, $23.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Shakedown (LE, $18.00) is less frosted. Urban Decay Lost (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever M842 Wine Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, muted berry with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a silky, finely-milled texture that was slightly powdery. Of all of Make Up For Ever’s finishes, the mattes feel the most like your traditional powder eyeshadow and the most like their original formula (but I think their mattes are smoother and silkier). Wine has some trouble adhering to bare skin, though plenty of pigment lifts off the surface–it just doesn’t stick. On me, it wears seven and a half hours before looking slightly faded. Sleek MakeUP Valley of Diamonds (LE, $9.99) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Honeymoon in Hollywood (LE, $9.99) is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild I’m Seeing Triples Eyelid (LE, $2.29) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Sha La La (LE) is brighter. MAC Dynamic Duo 1 #2 (LE, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches
/ view dupes.

Make Up For Ever S616 Chocolate Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, creamy consistency that was blendable and never powdery. The finish is really nice, as it has a barely-there shimmer that just keeps it from looking too flat on the skin, but it doesn’t look shimmery applied. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. bareMinerals Yes Please (P) is lighter. Tarte Chocolate Kisses (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Vengeance (LE, $18.00) is a touch lighter. Make Up For Ever S-60 (P, $21.00) is a cream product, more shimmery. MAC A Harvest of Greens #4 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Cry Later (LE) is more shimmery. MAC Texture (P, $15.00) is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
