This is part two of my review of bareMinerals Degrees of Dazzling ($79.00 for 20 x 0.01 oz.)! You can read part one here.

Stay Golden is described as a “metallic gold.” It’s a bright, metallic gold with warm, orange undertones. It had excellent pigmentation, and the texture was easy to work with–soft, smooth, and blendable. Too Faced Crème Brulee (P) is very similar. NARS Iskandar (P, $25.00) is a cream product, yellower. NARS Etrusque (LE, $24.00) is also a bit yellower. Maybelline Bold Gold (P, $6.99) is a cream product, yellower. Chanel Harmonie du Soir #1 (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Strawberry Mousse is described as a “frothy pink.” It’s a pale, light pink with warm, white sparkle over a matte base. It had good color payoff, and the texture was very soft and finely-milled. It may appear chalky on darker skin tones, though. Urban Decay Strange (P, $18.00) is more matte. Tom Ford Beauty In the Pink #1 (LE) is more matte. Dior Constellation (864) #3 (LE) is more frosted. Inglot #356 (P, $6.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Toasted Espresso is described as a “shimmering espresso.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a pearly sheen. It had decent pigmentation, and the texture was smooth, but it could have been more intense and buttery overall. Too Faced Yule Log (LE) is more sparkly. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is darker. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is a cream product. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #3 (P) is similar. Urban Decay West (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Life’s Luxury (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches.

Velvet Charcoal is described as a “velvet charcoal.” It’s a medium-dark gray with warm, brown undertones and a matte finish. This shade is also available individually in the permanent range. The texture is incredibly velvety, finely-milled, and soft. Guerlain Crazy Paris #5 is similar. (LE) MAC Interior Life (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Howzat (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Velvet Emerald is described as a “velvet emerald.” It’s a cool-toned, muted green with a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, but because it was so soft and finely-milled, it was a little powdery and prone to sheering out. I couldn’t think of any shades like this that I’ve reviewed in the past.

Velvet Lavender is described as a “velvet lavender.” It’s a pale, cool-toned pinky-lavender with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, finely-milled texture. Inglot #346 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Velvet Mauve is described as a “velvet mauve.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium rosy brown with a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was very velvety and smooth. This shade is also available individually in the permanent range. LORAC Mauve (P) is purpler. NARS New York (P, $24.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Velvet Nude is described as a “velvet nude.” It’s a pale, yellow-toned beige with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was quite soft and finely-milled. Urban Decay Bleach (LE, $18.00) is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Foxy (P, $18.00) is similar. NARS Biarritz (P, $24.00) is less yellow-toned. See comparison swatches.

Violet Spell is described as a “sparkling amethyst.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark plum with a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and the texture was a smidgen dry. MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Neo Nebula (LE, $21.00) is similar. MAC Daylight (LE, $21.00) is also similar, slightly pinker. See comparison swatches.

Yoga is described as a “dark red wine.” It’s a rich, burgundy with subtle warm undertones and red and burgundy shimmered finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture applied smoothly overall. Kat Von D Wonderland (LE) is lighter. Urban Decay Uncut (P, $18.00) is similar. MAC Rich Core (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Giorgio Armani #2 (P, $33.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.
