BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows

BUXOM Eyeshadow
BUXOM Eyeshadow

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 Made of Jade Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, light-medium green with subtly warmer gold shimmer on top with a slightly cooler, silvery base paired with a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture, which was a little looser in the pan compared to the shades. It applied well, though, but it is one that I liked better with a firmer/flatter brush. This shade wore nicely for eight hours before fading slightly. City Color Tide Pool (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Jade Shore (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #5 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Isla (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Jealous Girl (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC All Hands on Deck (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Fantasy (P, $9.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Tarvos (P, $29.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Smashbox Spruce (LE) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Rose Gold Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark gold with a warm, reddish-copper base paired with a frosted finish. It didn’t seem to shift color, but it had a very strong base color and a more contrasting shimmer color, which gave it a lot of dimension and depth on the lid. In some ways, I think it had more nuance than a duochrome, since it is apparent regardless of the angle. Makeup Geek Ritzy (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Illamasqua Ore (P, $25.50) is darker (85% similar). MAC Unwind (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Get Lucky (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #3 (P) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Iskandar (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 10 (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). Makeup Geek Hologram (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed (P, $6.75) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Dusk ‘Til Dawn Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark, forest green with warm, olive undertones and a soft, frosted sheen. The color payoff was amazing with fully opaque coverage immediately as a little went a long way. The texture was soft, smooth, dense, and creamy, which made it easy to use on the lid as it blended out nicely and sat well on the skin. This shade stayed on for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly. Makeup Geek Venom (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Take Two (P, $9.99) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Milani Bella Khaki (17) (P, $4.49) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Dusty Olive (LE) is less shimmery, more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). Anastasia Anaconda (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). L'Oreal Golden Emerald (P, $7.99) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever I324 Bronze Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, more muted (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Raw Jade (Right) (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Mildew (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Malachite (Left) (P) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Hourglass Color Field #4 (P) is lighter, more muted, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Jealous #1 (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Protest (-, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals Eureka (LE) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Golden Olive (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Twilight Tryst Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, almost blackened, blue-teal with cooler undertones and a strong, purple-red base. It had a near-metallic finish. The texture was very dense, though it was still smooth and blendable on the skin. It had fantastic pigmentation that applied and adhered well to bare skin. The color wore well for nine hours on me, and it did stain just faintly. Makeup Geek Secret Garden (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Storm Cloud (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Trendy (P) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). MAC Deep Blue Green (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Chantecaille Lagoon (P, $34.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Editor's Pick (LE) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bae (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Anastasia Mermaid (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sugarpill Magpie (P, $13.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Milani Mix It Up (P, $6.99) is brighter, warmer (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #7 (LE) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Bronzed Bod Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, dark bronze with subtle, warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a dense, buttery consistency that was so smooth that it almost felt like a cream eyeshadow. It applied beautifully and blended out almost effortlessly. The color started to crease after eight hours of wear on me. MAC Sizzlin' Diva (LE, $16.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Baby I'm a Star (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #6 (P) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #4 (LE) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Inglot #422 (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #3 (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Reflection (684) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Mooning (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Stila Metallic Bronze (LE, $18.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

MAC Pink Sensibilities #4 (LE, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Bad to the Bronze (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Inglot #409 (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Senso (10) (P, $39.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 each or $40 for six) is a powder eyeshadow that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $12 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place. The eyeshadow formula is one that works better in action than swatched, as several of the mattes seemed on the thinner, more powdery side, but then they would blend exceptionally well while adhering to bare skin–and they wouldn’t fade any faster than the more shimmery eyeshadows. The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

Sneak Peek: BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows Photos & Swatches

BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows
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.
