Chanel Jade Shore Stylo Eyeshadow

Chanel Jade Shore Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “tender green.” It’s a cool-toned green with gold and aquamarine shimmer. It’s complex; and I think it’s going to look bluer on those with cooler undertones. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #2 is darker and a powder eyeshadow. Chanel Metamorphose #1 is similar but powder. Dior Garden Pastels #5 is slightly bluer. Make Up For Ever #302 is more teal and a powder eyeshadow. See comparison swatches.

Illamasqua Paranormal Eyeshadow Palette

Illamasqua Paranormal Eyeshadow Palette ($46.50 for 0.20 oz.) is supposed to have four waterproof eyeshadows that “[feel] like a cream” but “[delivers] waterproof washes of color with long-lasting hold.” The formula feels like a hybrid between a mousse and cream, and then it somewhat dries down to a powder finish, but I did experience noticeable creasing across all four shades by the eighth hour of wear. They didn’t start smudging the minute water hit them, but if you rub, they do move somewhat. The texture did make it ease to blend these shades across the lid, both with each other and across the skin for an even layer of color. I was able to build to semi-opaque to mostly opaque color coverage, but none of the four shades were totally opaque.

Clinique Pink and Plenty & Lavish Lilac Chubby Stick Shadow Tints

Clinique Pink and Plenty Chubby Stick Shadow Tint ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pink with golden sheen.”
Chanel Abstraction is warmer, almost coral-like in comparison. Urban Decay Scratch is warmer, doesn’t have a golden sheen, and is a powder product. Lancome Kitten Heel is lighter but has a golden sheen, and it is also a powder eyeshadow. Make Up For Ever #24E is very comparable. MAC Da BLing doesn’t have the same golden sheen and is a powder eyeshadow. See comparison swatches here.

Maybelline Waves of White & Shady Shores Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Waves of White 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a cool-toned white with a teal duochrome/shimmer. It has a soft, lightly metallic finish. When applied, I was able to get semi-opaque color payoff. I tried layering, but it does seem to get chunky and create unevenness/patchiness so one layer seemed to work best. It might be nice as an inner corner brightener or layered over black eyeshadow (to bring out the duochrome). It was also, inadvertently, kind of cool painted onto lashes. It’s not a dupe by any means, but since it is within the range, I thought it was worth mentioning: Maybelline Too Cool is a stark, cool white, with no teal shimmer/duochrome sheen. L’oreal Dive Right In is darker, less white, and a powder. Sugarpill Lumi is a loose powder and leans greener. See comparison swatches here.

Maybelline Cool Crush & Seashore Frosts 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadows

Maybelline Cool Crush 24HR Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a shimmering, bluish-silver with a frosted, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff. Because it’s on the sheerer side, it may be better as a base underneath your favorite powder eyeshadows than as a standalone color. The consistency is thinner and has more slip than the permanent range of Color Tattoos. The lasting power on me wasn’t as good as the permanent range; there was some faint creasing after ten hours (no primer). Sephora Sweet Dreams is bluer, powder. Maybelline Icy Mint is bluer, not as cool-toned. Bobbi Brown Iced Blue is slightly bluer. Urban Decay Strip is darker, bluer, and a powder. MAC Water & Ice #1 is more silvered and a powder. MAC Free as Air is darker, bluer. Giorgio Armani #12 is more silver and a powder. Benefit Blue My Mind isn’t as cool-toned. Bobbi Brown Iced Blue is lighter, less blue, and a powder. See comparison swatches here.
