BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows

BUXOM Silver Screen Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brilliant lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. This shade had more noticeable sparkle, though I didn’t notice any fall out during the day, which I think is owed to the denser, thicker consistency of the eyeshadow overall. It had great color payoff, and the powder had a smooth, cream-like feel to it that was blendable and adhered well on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours. Viseart Bijoux Royal #4 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #2 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Rose Platinum (16) (LE, $39.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Flash (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Girls, Girls! (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Stila Frosted Lavender (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Crystal (DC, $16.00) is lighter, cooler, lower quality (85% similar). bareMinerals Shiver (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Mood Ring (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Datura (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows

There are six new shades of BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) now available. All six are metallic, and I wouldn’t describe them so much as duochromes as I would say they have stronger bases compared to the shimmers, so they have more dimension to them, but I didn’t get genuine shift in the color.
