Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette
Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face & Eye Palette ($69.00 for oz.) includes three cheek colors and six eyeshadows. They are in a gold, zippered case with a large, black tassel. As far as traveling goes, the upside is that it is rather cushioned and shouldn’t break easily, but it is thicker than most palettes. Some of the shades were decent, others were below average; it’s not a palette that seems worthy of splurging on for the holidays as a result. Those with several neutral palettes may find that this palette is rather repetitive. I did like that the cheek colors coordinated with the eye products, at least.

Tantric is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and on the thinner side, but it wasn’t dusty or hard to blend out on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. Estee Lauder Java Sun (LE, $65.00) is more muted, darker (95% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Going Native (Bronzer) (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is darker (90% similar).

Physicians Formula Bronze (P, $14.99) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Bronzer (P) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exhibitionist is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was incredibly soft and silky, but as a result, it was also more powdery and prone to sheering out on the skin. It was more buildable than I anticipated, so I think it applied well and unless you wanted intense coverage in one pass, I don’t think most would notice the sheerness in practice. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Tarte Deco (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). The Estee Edit Purr Pink (03) (P, $28.00) is darker (95% similar).

Chanel Vibration (270) (P, $45.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make a Sheen is a light gold with warm undertones and a chunky, frosted shimmer. The texture was drier and looser with a real noticeable grit from the shimmer/sparkle in it. The color applied decently to the skin, but it was hard to even out and looked patchy up-close. It lasted for seven hours on me. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Authentic (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Lights On is a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a really soft, silky texture that felt finely-milled and was just a touch powdery. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours on me. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #1 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Sand (LE, $19.00) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Mellow Yellow (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Candlelight is a medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. The consistency felt soft and smooth, but it was looser and thin, which made it dustier to work with and prone to sheering out on the lid. The color wore for just over seven hours on me. Makeup Atelier Honey Brown #2 (P) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Bellini (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). theBalm #21 (P, $6.50) is warmer (90% similar).

Dimmer is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-opaque with a smooth, silky texture but ran thin and was better over a primer. It wore well for seven hours. Stila Warm Honey (LE, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Tiki Hut (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Downfall (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Entrelacs #2 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Glasswing (P) is warmer (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Violet Hour is a muted, medium lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the dustier texture made it darken on the skin, which made it harder to blend out as it would stick strongly to some areas but less to others. This shade wore well for seven hours on me. LORAC Overcast (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). IT Cosmetics Romance (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Dusty Mauve (LE, $19.00) is brighter (85% similar). Lancome Rich History (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Enchanting (P) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Twilight is a muted, dark plum with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had a firmer consistency in the pan, which led to difficulty blending and diffusing the color on the lid as it would look patchy. It had decent, buildable coverage, and the color itself started to fade after seven hours of wear. Anastasia Aubergine (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Rich Core (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 19 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Guerlain Rose Barbare #4 (P) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

In the Dark is a dark black with warm, brown undertones and flecks of copper and bronze sparkle. It had good color payoff with a soft, finely-milled texture that was a little powdery but dense enough that it didn’t sheer out immediately on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me, but the sparkles did not bind with the base color, so there was some fall out over time (a lot of it didn’t even make it to the lid to begin with). MAC Beyond Gorgeous (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #4 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Blackjack (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector's Makeup Case
Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case ($59.00 for 1.59 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows, four cheek colors, miniature size Glossy Lip Paint, black liquid eyeliner, and miniature sized mascara. It’s another middling mega set from Tarte-it’s disappointing with some real misses in the palette. There were only a few shades that were actually good. The set itself is contained within a zippered case, but it is pretty bulky for traveling (and storing). The best part about the set were the punny art-inspired names.

Moment is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a fine, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a slightly firm texture in the pan. It applied decently and lasted for eight hours (but not the 12 promised). Hourglass Dim Infusion (P, $35.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Cream Soda (LE, $22.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Milani Luminoso (P, $8.49) is warmer, brighter (90% similar). NARS Fame (LE, $30.00) is brighter (90% similar). Chanel Caresse (180) (LE, $45.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Indecent (P, $26.00) is warmer, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals Inner Beauty (LE) is lighter (80% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals The Big Break (LE, $22.00) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). NYX Soft Spoken (P, $6.50) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Authentic is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic finish. It had good color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that lasted for eight and a half hours on me. It did emphasize pores slightly. Marc Jacobs Beauty Make a Sheen (LE) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Noctum (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Frenzy (Left) (P) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Unique is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The color coverage was fully opaque, but the texture was still soft, silky, and easily blended on the skin, so it could be sheered out or diffused as desired. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (95% similar). Becca Sweet Pea (P, $32.00) is cooler, less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain #03 (P, $53.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Madly (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Provocative is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty, but blendable, consistency.

Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glitter Glue is a light beige with warm undertones and a glittery finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was not buildabl,e and the texture was looser in the pan, so there was a lot of fall out during application as well as during wear. This one, as the name might allude to, needs a glitter adhesive to function. MAC Diamond Butterfly (LE, $16.00) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar). Givenchy Tentation #4 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced All American Girl (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Golden Lace #3 (LE) is darker (95% similar).

MAC Dazzlelight (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nudes is a light-medium beige with a mostly matte finish. The texture was incredibly stiff and had such a hard press in the pan that it was difficult to get any color out of it. It was a challenge to apply as so little color showed up, and what did apply, immediately melded to the skin and did not want to blend. It lasted for four and a half hours before it had faded. Laura Mercier Bone (LE, $23.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). NARS Madrague #1 (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Tabby (LE, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). LORAC Buff (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Look Closer I (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bronze Casting is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and flecks of copper sparkle. It had sheer coverage, which I did not find buildable at all, and the sparkle was loose and sat on top of the underlying color, so there was noticeable fall out after six hours of wear. Makeup Atelier Honey Brown #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #5 (LE)(95% similar). Lancome Midnight Haze (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Silhouette is a dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be a slight sheen to the finish, which kept it from being totally matte. The consistency was a little thinner and firmer, which made it harder to blend out without getting some patchiness. With enough effort, I was able to blend it out, though. It had good pigmentation and lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Laura Mercier Tuxedo (P, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar). Viseart Chroma #3 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 12 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). City Color Black Widow (P, $6.99) is cooler (95% similar).

Waterlilies is a light beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that had a tendency to sheer out when applied to the skin. It lasted for six hours on me. Too Faced Ginger Cream (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Coconut (LE, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Van Gogh With It is a medium brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was opaque, while the texture felt soft and smooth to the touch, and it blended out well on the eye.

Porcelain Dali is a very light pink with neutral-to-warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It was very sheer, due to the incredibly dusty and thin texture.

Stained Glass is a deep, reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish.

I Louvre It is a light-medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish.

Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes

Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes

Too Faced Grand Hotel Café Palettes ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes 18 eyeshadows, two blushes, one bronzer, and a deluxe sized mascara. While I don’t always have great luck with Too Faced’s eyeshadow formula (I have found it to be thinner and dustier, so it tends to require primer to perform well), I found this set of palettes to be particularly disheartening. I feel like this set is why people have dismissed holiday palettes more this year compared to previous years; it is everything wrong with holiday: an intense focus on packaging and presentation and seemingly little to no focus on actual product quality and consistency. There were many shades that were very sheer, dusty, or dry, and only a handful of shades were decent. Even two of the three cheek colors had a clumpy, powdery consistency that was just really surprising–in the worst of ways–and sealed the deal on this being a total disappointment.

Christmas Blend is a medium-dark peach with warm, brown undertones and a sparkling finish. It had sheer coverage with a dry, dusty, and chunky texture that was a total pain to use as it did not apply to bare skin (or even over regular primer). It lasted for four hours–if that–on me.

It’s a limited edition bronzing powder for the holidays, which is supposed to give the face an “enhanced and illuminated” effect, and it is scented with the brand’s Shalimar scent (which is noticeable in the pan and to a lesser degree, on the skin). The consistency was soft, just a smidgen dusty, but very blendable and forgiving on the skin, as it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. There was fine shimmer in the powder that translated to more of a satiny sheen as it was blended and buffed on my skin, so the finish looked natural and luminous but not shimmery or metallic. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.

bareMinerals Be Beautiful Holiday 2016 Face & Eye Palette

bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette
bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette

bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette ($45.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, three cheek colors, and a finishing powder. It is most bizarre that there’s a finishing powder, and it is, frankly, an odd color choice–it is very, very yellowy orange with no real sheen or satiny quality to it, so it is drier, powdery, and sits poorly on the skin while adding a yellow tint. Of all the inclusions in the palette, that was the most odd, and then of course, bareMinerals is a multiple-time offender of putting out an endless slew of neutral palettes so once you have a few, the rest start having less appeal.

I wasn’t particularly impressed by the cheek colors in the palette, as they had a firmer press that made it harder to get color payoff out of them. The eyeshadows were good and consistent with the Ready formula, but they seem unbalanced in depth–there are two very light shades and then two browns that are just a shade or two different; even sticking with neutrals, the composition could be more versatile. The palette itself is housed in a plastic compact this year, which is new, and for some, I imagine they’ll consider it an upgrade from cardboard, but it did feel bulkier as a result.

Formula Overview

Ready Eyeshadow is supposed to have 12-hour wear, “vivid, pure, provocative color” that “looks like a powder, feels like a cream” and blends seamlessly. In general, I quite enjoy this formula, and it’s one of my favorites, as it is typically soft without being too powdery or dusty and more shimmery shades have a real creaminess to them. They wear between eight and twelve hours on me (without primer), blend well, and sit nicely on the skin. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in the past have been mostly opaque to opaque, but there have been a few misses over the years (not too many, though). Ready Blush is supposed to have “buildable color” with eight-hour wear, and those things are both true: they tend to be medium in coverage, somewhat to moderately buildable, and wear around eight hours.

Presence is a pale beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a soft, creamy texture that was a smidgen dusty.

Graceful is a soft, light-medium taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the powder was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin.

Exhale is a dark taupe with subtle, brown undertones and a grayer overtone paired with a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff with a lightly dusty texture that remained blendable and did not look dry or powdery applied to the skin. This shade wore for just over nine hours on me. Guerlain Les Cendres #1 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Cool Gray (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Atelier Natural Chestnut #5 (P) is cooler, lighter (95% similar).

Promise is a pale pinky-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that applied easily as the texture was soft, blendable, and not too dusty or too firm in the pan.

Beautiful is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a dustier, thinner texture, which resulted in the product sheering out on the lid and not applying as evenly as the other shades. It wore for seven hours before fading on me. LORAC Tan (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Plum (Base) (P) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Rose de Mai (P, $29.50) is warmer (95% similar).

Confident is a dark burgundy with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, while the consistency had a firmer feel to it, though it was more buildable on the lid in practice. I noticed that this one had a tendency to stick unevenly to bare skin, so it would benefit from a primer. It wore well for ten hours on me. Anastasia Beauty Mark (P, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm Friendly (P, $16.00) is cooler, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Charming (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Ensemble (LE) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Stallion (LE, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Golden Gate Matte is a subdued, medium rose pink with warmer undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was firm, which made it difficult to really get color out of the pan, and when it did, it seemed to be chalkier and powdery. It lasted for eight hours, which is all the product promises, but the texture and way it looked on the skin left something to be desired. Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Wisteria (LE, $32.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Rose Bronze (P, $45.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Overexposed (-) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Inner Beauty is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It’s supposed to be all-over color for face (which seem to be what the brand uses for highlighters), but there’s no real sheen to it this when it is on the skin–possibly because it’s so firm that hardly any product comes off to begin with. It also had a chalkiness to it that just didn’t sit well on skin–it looked like it was just on top but not seamlessly blended. It wore for seven hours on me. NARS Sex Appeal (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals The Spring Fling (LE, $22.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar).

Dior Peach Splendor (LE, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Moment (LE, $28.00) is darker (80% similar). Makeup Geek Cherish (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Zoeva Shy Beauty (P, $11.80) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Estee Lauder Lover's Blush (P, $34.00) is darker, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Faux Tan Matte is a muted, medium brown with warm, yellowish undertones and a satin finish. It had medium, buildable coverage with a fairly soft texture that ran a little dusty. It applied well and blended easily along the edges while lasting for seven hours on me. Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is brighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Java Sun (LE, $65.00) is more muted (95% similar). Too Faced Gingerbread (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (01) (P, $40.00) is lighter (90% similar).

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

Be Beautiful Finishing Powder is a light-medium yellow with warm, yellowy orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was powdery and clumpy–where the powder would come off in chunks, but they would blend out if you worked at it. This was such a strange inclusion to begin with, and the quality is just terrible–it does nothing but make skin look worse: dry, powdery, and noticeably yellower. It seemed to wear fine; it seemed to even prolong the wear of my base products by an hour or so.

There is not much said about this bronzer, beyond that it is a “matte bronzer” and “is as natural-looking as it gets” (which could refer to finish, color, or even coverage!). The texture is incredibly soft and silky, very smooth to the touch without being too powdery or too dusty, though there’s a little bit of excess product kicked up in the pan. Speaking of the pan, the amount you get is massive, so you’ll want to really be a fan of this if you want to hit pan! It had good pigmentation that was true-to-pan, while the silkier texture made it easy to blend and diffuse (or sheer out). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
