Anastasia Custard, Caramel, Copper Shimmer, Rich Brown Eyeshadows

Anastasia Custard Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a meduim, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It is pretty aptly named, actually. The texture was lightly dusty, though blendable, with semi-opaque color payoff. This one faded more quickly than some of the recent shades–after six and a half hours–so I would recommend a primer as a must-have with this shade. Too Faced Tufted Suede (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bone (LE, $23.00) is lighter (85% similar). Buxom Gimme Gorgeous (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Anastasia Sateen, 10K, Blazing, Comfort Eyeshadows

Anastasia Sateen Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that was very blendable without fall out, despite being a smidgen on the drier side. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably on me. Smashbox Crisp (P) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Sunset Blvd. (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Anastasia Touch of Lilac, Electro, Star Cobalt, Rich Velvet Eyeshadows

Anastasia Touch of Lilac Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a very light, muted pink with a soft, frosted finish. It’s not really lilac to me–it is much warmer than that. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too soft or too firm, so it applied well to the lid and didn’t lose its coverage when blended. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. Sephora Ex-boyfriend (LE) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Laura Mercier Diamond Pink (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Delightful (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Harpooned Heart (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #2 (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Anastasia Stone, Blanc, Fawn, Smoke Eyeshadows

Anastasia Eyeshadow
Anastasia Eyeshadow

Anastasia Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) just launched at Sephora and Ulta, and you can purchase four for $40, which will get you a refillable 4-pan quad (Sephora’s system will only let you purchase a discounted set of four once per order). I’ve only ordered my eyeshadow singles from Anastasia directly, and I have ordered eight at a time and have received 8-pan cardboard palettes to put them in. However, the quad from Sephora is all plastic with a clear lid–it looks a lot like MAC’s newer quad packaging.

Anastasia Stone Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a light-medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had really good pigmentation with a soft, silky, and smooth texture that applied well and blended out with ease. On me, it started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Laura Mercier Cappuccino (LE, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Smoke Signals (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Trench Coat (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Frisk (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Smashbox Taupe (P) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Cover (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Mud Mask (LE) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Nudie (P, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Cashmere Bunny (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Blanc Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a pale, white-beige with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightly powdery texture that does tend to fall out when applied, which is less-than-ideal as the lighter color can make everything grayer if it falls on top so definitely tap of excess and press against the skin rather than sweeping. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Too Faced Amour (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek White Lies (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ever Ivory (DC, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Bisque (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Morning Dew (P, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Make Up For Ever M126 Chalk (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Viseart Bright Editorial #1 (P) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Fawn Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark yellowed brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too powdery or too firm. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably. Stila Warm Honey (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Preppy (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Dune (LE, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Anastasia Smoke Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a dark, taupe brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff with a firmer, slightly stiff texture that could have been easier to work with as it could get a little patchy when blended. It wore for eight hours on me before fading. Lancome Couture (P, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Earth (LE, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Anastasia Icy, Mermaid, Midnight, Rosette Eyeshadows

Anastasia Icy Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is an icy, bluish silver with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage with a really dense consistency–it felt a little cream-like, but it was firm enough that getting pigmentation out of it was harder. The color was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. NYX Tin (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Moonshine (LE) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #6 (P) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Smoky #1 (P) is darker (90% similar).
