Urban Decay Retrograde 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner
Urban Decay Retrograde 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner

Urban Decay Retrograde 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a blackened purple with lighter purple, pink, and blue shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage if I applied a second layer after the first one had dried down. (Trying to improve coverage while it is drying just moves the product around and creates an uneven, streaky result!) Once dry, the eyeliner stayed in place for the ten hours I wore it for. Zoeva Mr. Marvelous (P, $7.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Th(ink) (44) (P, $25.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Stila Purple Tang (P, $22.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Cute Robot (P, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Empire (P, $20.00) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Evil Twin (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less shimmery (80% similar). Tarina Tarantino Amethyst Android (P, $15.00) is lighter, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Galactic 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, metallic shimmer-sheen finish. The consistency was fairly watery, which resulted in needing to shake the tube for half of a minute in order to mix everything together well enough to get semi-opaque coverage. It felt a bit clingy after it dried down, but it didn’t budge over a ten hour period. MAC Feminine Edge (DC, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Strawberry Macaroon (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Street 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a deep, blackened teal with a satin sheen. It was nicely pigmented with opaque coverage in a single stroke. The consistency was thin, but it wasn’t as watery as other shades, so it was easier to work with and had better color payoff. This shade lasted for ten hours on me. Urban Decay Invasion (P, $20.00)(95% similar). Colour Pop Fast Lane (P, $6.00) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Fast Lane (P, $5.00) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar). MAC Black Ivy (DC, $16.00) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Zodiac 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a medium-dark greenish-brown; it had a strong, dark brown base with lighter emerald green, olive green, and gold shimmer. The texture of the eyeliner was watery and thin, which resulted in streakier, sheerer coverage. I would recommend waiting for the initial layer to dry down, and then applying a second layer for better opacity. The eyeliner lasted for ten hours, though. Urban Decay Zodiac (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Rue de Rivoli (P, $24.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Swamped (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Night Porter (P, $24.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Devotion (P, $20.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Go For a Ride (P, $10.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a water-resistant, long-wearing, “intensely pigmented” liquid liner with an ultra-precise (thin) applicator. There are cream shades and metallic shades; the cream ones have a shiny finish (so none dry matte), while the metallic ones have a more pearly sheen. They require 20-30 seconds worth of shaking, or else you’ll end up with a more watery, sheerer consistency that is hard to work with. If shaken for long enough, everything mixes and most shades are semi-opaque to opaque and thin without feeling watered down, but it is a very wet, thin formula that takes 15-30 seconds to dry down (depends on the shade–metallics dried faster for me, on the whole). Once it dries down, it does seem to shrink slightly and I can feel it cling to my skin a bit. The applicator is thin and flexible enough to maneuver around the curve of the lid. Something that was somewhat frustrating is that the formula is so thin and wet that I do get some splattering when I open shades as well as when I apply (like a dot or two randomly on face).

These remove pretty easily with just water and a light rub, but they don’t come off just rubbing with a dry fingertip at all, so removing those spots requires real makeup remover or a dampened brush/cotton swab. During removal, the eyeliner flakes off in small chunks. If I just sprayed the eyeliner with water and lightly dab or blot (or even just let the water evaporate), they didn’t smudge, fade, or run. I didn’t have any issues with the wear of them–they all went for a full 10-hours before I removed.

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation
Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation ($40.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a full coverage and waterproof liquid foundation with a matte finish. It delivered on its promise of full coverage, and it was fairly matte when it dried down (not so matte that it appeared flat), but it was unforgiving on dry patches and can be harder to spread across the skin if you don’t work quickly. It lasted well for six hours before becoming noticeably less matte, which indicated the natural oils of my skin were coming through and beginning to break down the foundation. I noticed some separation around my nose and on my chin after eight hours of wear.  My biggest issue with this is how it sits on my skin, because it’s very hard to get it to look really smooth and skin-like–I had two days where it looked that way but all the rest were days where areas looked cakey (especially underneath my eyes and on my nose).

Early reader reports are all over the place–issues with shade matching due to darkening and oxidation along with incredibly varied wear times–makes this one a must to try in-store or else be prepared to return.  For me, I noticed that the foundation dries much darker than it appears pumped out of the bottle, more so than the average liquid foundation, but this is something that occurs within 30 seconds to a minute as I apply. I didn’t have the foundation darken any further than it did at dry down.

I tried two shades–3.25 (described as a “light with neutral undertone”) and 4.0 (described as a “medium-light with soft warm undertone”), neither of which was a perfect fit, but a 60/40 ratio worked for me. It is easier for me to wear 3.25 than 4.0, because 4.0 is very yellow and makes my skin appear significantly yellow in tone. I thought there was no way 3.25 could be the right color, but it dries down darker–the difference in color at dry down is a bit more severe than I normally get when a foundation goes from liquid to totally dry and matte. It didn’t seem to oxidize over time on my skin, even after 10 hours, but it seems to be a fairly common experience by those who have tried it, so it’s something to keep in mind (it sounds like sampling this is a must). I wore this ten times, including outdoors (it’s been somewhat humid, in the low 100s here) for brief periods, like running errands or walking a few blocks, as well as for a few walks around the neighborhood (more like high 80s to low 90s in temperature).

For my face, one to one and a half pumps was all that was necessary for full coverage. If you want to build up coverage, I would recommend half a pump dabbed in three to four spots per area of the face (forehead, each cheek, one or two down the nose, and two to three on the chin). I liked to put a couple of dabs underneath my chin and jaw line so I can blend the foundation down the neck, almost to the base of my neck to ensure a seamless match. If you’re someone who works more slowly with their foundation application, I would suggest applying to about half the face, blending and spreading the foundation out, and then applying to the other half of the face to ensure the best application possible.  The faster you work, the better the finish is; the slower you work, the more cakey it appears on the skin.  It does not like to be blended or fiddled with after it dries down (it always looked terrible if I tried to blend an area that had dried down–it would separate, look powdery and cakey, and dry).

If you have drier skin, a damp sponge (like a beautyblender) tended to move the skin the least and resulted in a more forgiving finish along a dry patch I have (just to the right of my nose and below the eye) for a couple of days while testing this, where a brush was often too prone to catching on the edge of the dryness.  On the days prior and after that dry patch appearing, it looked decent to good if I worked very quickly and was able to blend everything out before it dried down. Assuming one likes a matte finish, the foundation looked good on my skin with smooth, even coverage overall. However, when I had dryness, the foundation was more noticeable on the skin and had a tendency to sit on the skin and look cakey. I also found that if I overapplied or did not apply fast enough, it can look cakey–so this isn’t a foolproof foundation as far as I’m concerned.

I liked the feel of it on the skin, as it wasn’t heavy or clingy, though it is more noticeable that I am wearing something all over my face compared to my go-to foundations, which I tend to wear at light-medium to medium coverage (Guerlain Lingerie de Peau, Tarte Rainforest of the Sea). The coverage was opaque enough that it hid my dark circles, so I did not need concealer–you can really see how much it minimizes the shadow and bagginess of my under eye area on my right eye (your left) when looking at the before and after photos. When I’m testing a foundation, I want to forget I have it on, because that means it looked good, wore well, and didn’t require a lot of ongoing maintenance–given that I’m mostly indoors (with air conditioning), it’s the least a foundation can do!

That’s how All Nighter was for the first six to eight hours of wear, but it started to separate and break down after eight hours and seemed to go downhill quickly. It’s more of an average wearing foundation on my normal-to-dry skin than a long-wearing (or “all night,” if you will!) formulation for me. With setting powder, I was able to get an additional two hours or so of good wear out of it. With Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, it lasted for eight to nine hours well. With respect to the waterproof claims, I have no pool so I did not swim, but I took a shower and found it was intact so long as I gently patted my face and did not rub. It can withstand light rubbing if you pat first, then lightly rub.  I didn’t have any issues with removal (I use shu uemura’s cleansing oil).

This is a foundation I would try to get a sample of for more accurate shade matching but also to see how it does on your skin. It was a foundation that looked good one day, bad the next, and so-so on other days–and these are the foundations that can be frustrating to wear, because you cannot apply with confidence. I really enjoyed the way it felt on the skin, as it was lightweight but covered well, but I prefer something that has a more forgiving application and initial appearance as well as one that wears longer and breaks down subtly (I’d rather something fade more evenly than disintegrate!).

Urban Decay Chem Trail, Horizon, Dark Cloud, Gamma Ray Moondust Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Chem Trail Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Chem Trail Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Chem Trail Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, champagne gold with warm undertones and a lightly sparkly, metallic finish. It had finer sparkle and less of it than a lot of the Moondust eyeshadows, so it was easy to work with and had no visible fall out over time (tested for eight hours). The texture was smoother and easier to work with as well. MAC Cool Companions #1 (LE) is less pigmented (95% similar). LORAC Cashmere (LE, $19.00) is lighter, less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Metal (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Gold Bar (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #2 (P) is warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Horizon Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark brown with warm, rosy undertones and chunky gold glitter and fine pink sparkle. It was almost a mauve-brown color, as you can see the strength of the pink tones and sparkle on top of the brown when applied damp. The texture was very chunky, so it was harder to work with dry, and even applied damp, it was best patted onto the lid and layered. I would advise using a glitter adhesive with this shade to get the most bang out of the shade. I had some fall out when I used it dry, and it only lasted for six hours before creasing. When I tried it damp, it was significantly more opaque and had noticeable fallout but it was less than dry application. Colour Pop Prickly Pear (LE, $5.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Tinsel (LE, $5.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes (Glitter) (P) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Deception (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Don't Tell (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Rose Gold (P, $14.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Lancome My French #6 (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Free Hug (P, $10.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Liar (P, $19.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Clarins Rosewood #2 (P) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Hourglass Infinity #3 (P) is warmer, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Slow/Fast/Slow (LE, $21.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Glitterrock (P, $20.00) is cooler, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Dark Cloud Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark gray with lighter silver and pale pink sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and mostly opaque coverage applied damp. The texture was noticeably glittery but went on fairly smoothly, and the flecks of sparkle were larger and flat enough that they seemed to adhere to bare skin (even when blended, they tended to disperse across the skin without dropping). I had minor fall out when I used it dry and almost no fall out when I used it damp. MAC Say It Isn't So (LE, $21.00)(100% similar). Bobbi Brown Silver (LE) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Fyrinnae Frostbytes (P, $6.75) is less shimmery (90% similar). YSL Grey Splash (01) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Blue Garden #5 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Warm Thunder (LE, $20.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Gamma Ray Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark navy blue with cool undertones and a metallic sheen that had a light dusting of lighter bluish-teal sparkle. This shade was smoother and not quite as glittery as some shades, but it had a noticeable amount of sparkle nonetheless. Applied dry, it had semi-opaque coverage that lasted for eight hours with a minuscule amount of fallout, while damp application yielded opaque coverage and almost no fallout. Make Up For Ever D222 Night Blue (P, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Vega (P, $20.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Dior Reveuse (271) (LE, $31.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Electric Blue (P, $6.99) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Hello Kitty Kitty-Chan (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Swing (116) (P, $29.50) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Vega (P, $22.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Cressida (P, $29.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Smashbox Nocturnal (P) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is specifically designed to be over-the-top sparkly with “minimal fallout” and sheerer coverage dry, more “intense color payout” when applied wet. I like using flat, synthetic brushes (or fingertips, as the brand suggests) that have been slightly dampened by a spritz of just water. If you want extra-long hold, I would still recommend a glitter adhesive, but I get pretty good wear with little fall out without any primers or adhesive, as the formula has a smoother, almost wet consistency. They work better combined with other eyeshadows than using several at once, and they tend to look more impressive in person than in still photos. Some shades are better than others; the ones with stronger base colors even when applied dry tend to have the least fall out over time.

Urban Decay Vape, Stellar, Crux, Skywalk Moondust Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Vape Moondust Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Vape Moondust Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Vape Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light pewter with subtle, cooler undertones and a warmer, pink glitter and shift. The texture was slightly glittery but smooth overall, and it was blendable on the skin without resulting in a lot of fallout. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry, which had minimal fall out over time. Damp application yielded opaque coverage that wore well for eight hours and had almost no fallout. NARS Antares (P, $29.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Starstruck (LE) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Indulge (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #2 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Ice (LE, $5.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Stila Rose Pewter (LE, $18.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC She Sparkles (LE, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Sephora Lunar Eclipse (98) (P, $10.00) is darker (80% similar). Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Stellar Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark coppery-brown with strong, warm undertones and tons of chunky gold and molten gold glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage with a looser, glittery texture when used dry, which resulted in some fall out while worn. When I tried it damp, the color intensified to mostly opaque coverage and had a smoother appearance on the lid, while the wear time was better with only a bit of noticeable fallout. MAC I Like 2 Watch (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Gilded Thrill (LE, $22.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sphinx (LE, $45.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals Gold Nugget (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is lighter, less shimmery (80% similar). Colour Pop Flipper (P, $5.00) is more pigmented, brighter, lighter (80% similar). NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is lighter, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Crux Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark bluish-teal with a stronger blue base paired with lighter green, greenish-teal, and gold glitter. This shade was harder to work with dry, as the glitter really separated away from the base and had a tendency to look like dirt sitting on top. When applied damp, the base color intensified and the glitter became more cohesive with the color, which gave it a smoother, more blended appearance. I had a lot of fall out when I used this shade dry, but I had very little when I used it damp (tested over an eight-hour period). Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #3 (P) is brighter, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Krinkle (DC, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Across the Universe (100) (P, $10.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Natasha Denona Cloudy Blue (17M) (P, $29.00) is lighter, less shimmery (80% similar). Revlon Neptune Star (LE, $4.99) is darker (80% similar). Makeup Geek Chameleon (P, $12.00) is warmer, lighter, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Skywalk Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium sky blue with cool undertones and lighter silver glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage that lasted for eight hours with minor fall out when applied dry. It had mostly opaque coverage that wore well for eight hours with almost no fall out when applied damp. The texture was fairly smooth, lightly blendable, and had a visible color base on the lid. YSL Wet Blue (10) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Ocean Light (122) (LE, $32.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner (Part 2)

Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner
Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner

Urban Decay 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a water-resistant, long-wearing, “intensely pigmented” liquid liner with an ultra-precise (thin) applicator. There are cream shades and metallic shades; the cream ones have a shiny finish (so none dry matte), while the metallic ones have a more pearly sheen. They require 20-30 seconds worth of shaking, or else you’ll end up with a more watery, sheerer consistency that is hard to work with. If shaken for long enough, everything mixes and most shades are semi-opaque to opaque and thin without feeling watered down, but it is a very wet, thin formula that takes 15-30 seconds to dry down (depends on the shade–metallics dried faster for me, on the whole). Once it dries down, it does seem to shrink slightly and I can feel it cling to my skin a bit. The applicator is thin and flexible enough to maneuver around the curve of the lid. Something that was somewhat frustrating is that the formula is so thin and wet that I do get some splattering when I open shades as well as when I apply (like a dot or two randomly on face).

These remove pretty easily with just water and a light rub, but they don’t come off just rubbing with a dry fingertip at all, so removing those spots requires real makeup remover or a dampened brush/cotton swab. During removal, the eyeliner flakes off in small chunks.. If I just sprayed the eyeliner with water and lightly dab or blot (or even just let the water evaporate), they didn’t smudge, fade, or run. I didn’t have any issues with the wear of them–they all went for a full 10-hours before I removed.

Urban Decay Bump 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright white with a satiny sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which applied fairly fluidly and didn’t skip. In order to get truly opaque coverage, a second layer is needed, but be sure to wait until the first layer dries down. It lasted for ten hours on me. Make Up For Ever M16 Matte White (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Fascinating (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Santa Monica Blvd. (P, $24.00) is cooler, brighter (95% similar). Stila Alpine (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (DC, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Polar Ice (P, $17.00) is more muted (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Cuff 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a bright silver with a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage, even after I spent a good bit of time shaking up the tube; on the best application, I was able to get semi-opaque coverage, but three of the four times I tried swatching for better coverage, it was just semi-sheer. If you want to layer this for true opacity, just make sure to let the first layer dry. MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). L'Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Urban Decay Revolver 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a dark gray with silver and teal shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one pass (and I did shake it up for about 20 seconds), and it didn’t improve even after opening/closing the product over the course of a week to see if it would dry out any. The texture was thinner, somewhat runny and watery, and it was harder to control. Once on, the liner locked on for ten hours without issue. Urban Decay Moonspoon (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Little Black Bow (DC, $16.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Starry Sky (P, $10.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Uzi (P, $20.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar).

Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a deep, dark black with a satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a fluid, smooth consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, though it is thinner than the average eyeliner from my experience. It lasted for ten hours on me. Too Faced Black (P, $20.00) is glossier (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Really Black (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Definitely Black (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Goldrush 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a medium, yellowy gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. After swatching this five times, it seemed to thicken and become more pigmented, but the first four times, it was always semi-sheer, so it may be like some mascaras where after some use, it dries out and actually is better. Chanel Vegas Gold (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Brassy (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC $$$ (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Urban Decay Snakebite 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.0000 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with gold and bronze pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage initially, which you could layer if you made sure to let the initial layer dry down and get opaque coverage. The liquid eyeliner did apply smoothly and evenly, though, and it still went for a full 10 hours without budging on me. MAC Bountiful Brown (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Smog (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Plank (P, $16.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Constant Copper (LE) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
