Maybelline Never Fade Jade, Pink Rebel, & Potent Purple Color Tattoo Pure Pigments

Maybelline Never Fade Jade Color Tattoo Pure Pigments ($6.99 for 0.05 oz.) is a bluish-teal with a satin finish. It’s beest applied with a damp brush, as it is semi-sheer and slightly patchy when applied dry. It is also easier to blend out when it is damp, as it tended to stick when I tried to apply it dry. Fyrinnae Gender Bent is lighter. Fyrinnae Sleepy Holllow is bluer. Urban Decay Deep End is more shimmery, brighter. Maybelline Edgy Emerald is greener, cream. MAC Cool Heat is bluer. Inglot #338 is matte, darker. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Are You My Mummy?, Banana Mochi, & Dragon’s Wing Eyeshadows

Fyrinnae Are You My Mummy? Eyeshadow ($6.80 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “vibrant, gleaming green with a hint of turquoise.” It’s a medium-dark, forest green with gold and teal shimmer and a frosted finish. Applied damp, it is fairly opaque, and patted over Pixie Epoxy it is fully opaque and slightly smoother. It’s part of the Arcane Magic range, so at a certain angle or closer to a light source, it is supposed to take on a “deep pink color, almost magenta.” It’s very, very subtle when it does catch the light at just the right angle and distance. Sephora Walk on the Wild SIde is similar but lacks the brown-ish base. Sephora Rolling in the Grass is slightly warmer. Urban Decay Zodiac is warmer, browner. NARS Night Porter is darker. See comparison swatches.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments (Barely Brazen, Breaking Bronze, Downtown Brown)

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments ($6.99 for 0.05 oz.) come in twelve different shades, and this post features three of them. These are the first three I grabbed to try, and they happened to coordinate rather well together, which was a nice bonus! I really liked all three, as they had a very soft, finely-milled texture with nice pigmentation. Maybelline touts 24-hour wear (which is one of my least favorite claims for any product to make), and I’m not overly comfortable wearing makeup for that long, but I did wear all three shades for sixteen hours. I had some creasing after nine hours, and it was noticeably faded and fairly creased by sixteen hours. When worn over a primer, I didn’t have any issues until fourteen hours (some fading but no creasing).

Fyrinnae Aztec Gold Pressed Eyeshadow & Gender Bent Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Aztec Gold Pressed Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep metallic gold over a rich olive green base.” It’s a deep olive gold with a really rich, soft metallic finish. The texture of this was insane; it felt like a cream product, even though it is a pressed powder, but it truly felt so buttery and smooth that it felt exactly like a cream eyeshadow does. A little went a long way when applying this, too. I found it looked the same applied dry as it did dry over Pixie Epoxy (at most, slightly more of a sheen with Pixie Epoxy). It wore on bare lids without creasing or fading for nine hours (same results over Pixie Epoxy/Primer). Urban Decay Stargazer is lighter, more metallic. NARS Paramaribo #1 is darker, browner. Make Up For Ever #11 is yellower. Inglot #433 is browner. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Parental Advisory Eyeshadow

Edited: Fyrinnae discontinued Parental Advisory (Loose) in 2011 and reformulated it in 2012, and the current version is closer to the pressed version. (Additionally, from their description of the loose color: “Reformulated in 4-2012 but very close to the original.”) Mine is from 2011–will grab the reformulated version next time I order from Fyrinnae to compare. I unfortunately did not connect the dots that mine was pre-reformulation, so my deepest apologies!

Inglot #123R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan

Inglot #123R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) consists of three hues of orange ranging from muted, tangerine-ish orange to a deep, reddened orange. All three shades had nice color payoff, and the texture was consistent throughout–soft, finely-milled, not powdery, and easy to blend out on the lid.  When I wore the three together, they lasted well for seven and a half hours.  After eight and a half hours, I saw some minor fading.  Over a primer, I had no trouble with all the shades maintaining their vibrancy for as long as ten hours of wear.
