Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo ($19.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold” and an “icy silver.”  Each eyeshadow is 0.13 oz., which is over double the average-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.), and the price point is very palatable for two shades.  A lot of the duos, though, are more basic than not, so whether any are must-haves depends on the size of your stash.

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is dirty red-brown. It’s hard to describe it, because it looks red, technically, but red brings images of bright, ruby reds to mind, whereas this is a much more muted red with a lot of brown to bring down the intensity. There’s a very faint sprinkling of gold shimmer that’s barely noticeable once applied. MAC Scene to Be Seen (Inner) (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Modern Mandarin (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Clinique Fig Pop (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
