Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes Prismatique Eyes

Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes Prismatique Eyes
Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes Prismatique Eyes

Surratt Beauty Prismatique Eyes ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a two-part compact that twists to reveal a glittery, more powder-like eyeshadow on the lower level, and then on the upper level, the lid twists off and reveals a cream eyeshadow. The brand states that the cream eyeshadow is a long-wearing, “water-proof shadow base” that can be used underneath the glittery eyeshadow or as an eyeliner. The glittery eyeshadow is called a “prismatic top coat.” The two only work well when used together, but neither works that well alone. Together, they’re pretty, but the cream eyeshadow is fussier than ideal for a cream-based product, so blending and getting even coverage were quite challenging.

Based on the fact that the cream eyeshadow is the long-wearing part and has the most claims, I rated this as a standalone product plus how well it did hold the glitter eyeshadow, but the wear considers it on its own as well as when worn with the glitter eyeshadow. On the other hand, the glitter eyeshadow’s wear is based on how long it wears over the cream base (there seem to be next to no claims made for the eyeshadow, other than calling it a top coat and it designed to be very sparkly!). The cream eyeshadow worked decently as an eyeliner without the glittery eyeshadow on top of it, but on the lid, it had a tendency to crease before it had a chance to set due to a longer dry-down time. If I applied the glittery eyeshadow on top of the cream base as it was drying down, the glitter was fairly locked on and seemed to prevent any initial creasing. Then the whole layer cake of product lasted for nine hours before I noticed faint creasing. The cream eyeshadow was fairly crease-resistant, but the longer dry down time meant keeping the lid close and lightly patting the cream eyeshadow back into place after 15-20 seconds until it was fully dried at about 45 seconds. I recommend a flat, slightly narrow, synthetic brush to pat on the glitter eyeshadow for best results.

The glitter eyeshadow will get everywhere without the cream base to lock on, and the glitter seemed like flecks, which were a pain to remove from the skin (it is always amusing that glitter won’t stick to the lid, but it’ll stick to your nose no problem!). The cream eyeshadow was generally pigmented but had a fair amount of slip to it without being really thick, so it tended to look patchy and uneven on the lid, especially the more I blended out the edge. It is the type of product that is easier to use as a base on the lid and then use traditional powder eyeshadow to do crease work. The packaging felt flimsy to me, and I’ve too often swiveled open the lower level and nicked the edge of the pan as a result. I had consistent results across the three shades I purchased inasmuch as wear and application went, but this particular duo had the least pigmented cream shade–but since these are intended to be layered on the lid, it did not really make a difference once the glitter eyeshadow as patted on top. It was, of course, noticeably sheer and even more muted on than in the pot when used as an eyeliner.

Glamour Eyes (Cream) is described as a “royal plum.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark lavender purple with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer, streaky coverage unless really piled on, but this made it extremely difficult for the product to dry down evenly without gathering into the creases. When used as a base, I really did not find it to be an issue that the coverage was sheerer or uneven, as patting the glitter on top hid it entirely while still acting as an adhesive for the flecks of glitter. Makeup Geek Fairytale (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Nearing Dark (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Motown (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Mulberry (LE, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Charade #2 (P, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Purple Haze (DC, $16.00) is cooler, better quality (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glamour Eyes (Glitter) is described as a “brilliant blue-violet duo-chrome.” It is more of a medium, pink-mauve base with blue-to-violet shift with a very glittery, chunky consistency. I think the chunkiness is actually due to how soft the product is, so a lot more product gets dislodged from the surface of the pan than you’d expect, so a very light touch is best. I might even consider using a slightly dampened brush as well. It looks cooler-toned once layered over the cream eyeshadow, and you can start to see the duochrome come through, but on its own, it just seemed like a warmer shade with a lot of glitter. Urban Decay Horizon (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Passion (P) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Smoky Mauve (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Halo (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Glitterrock (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). NARS Parallel Universe (Left) (LE, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar).

ColourPop Where the Night Is Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow ($20.00 for 0.28 oz. or $5.00 for each 0.07 oz. shade) is a collection of four Super Shock Shadows that can be purchased a “set,” but you can also purchase each shade alone. There’s no monetary advantage to purchasing the set; the only difference is you would get the packaging that reflects the collaboration and collection’s name. It’s a nice selection of shades, and all four shades performed well for me and were consistent with the formula I’ve come to know and love. If you’re unfamiliar with the Super Shock Shadow formula, it is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

Midnight is described as a “black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top in a metallic finish.” It’s a blackened olive green with warm undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. The texture was lightly emollient and blended out well without turning patchy. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear (no primer), but I did have a few stray glittery bits underneath my eye. Charlotte Tilbury Veruschka (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #4 (P) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D308 Aquatic Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Hammered (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #24 (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I328 Bronze (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Gabon (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Hourglass Color Field #5 (P) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Inglot #419 (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Hidden Treasure (114) (LE, $13.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Eureka (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Crowbar (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #2 (P) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Porter is described as a “warm burgundy with gold multi-dimensional gold glitter on top [of] a metallic finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark cranberry with hints of warm, pinky-copper tones and subtle gold sparkle. The texture had a really creamy, smooth feel to it, and it applied with true-to-pot color with full coverage. It blends out with ease and doesn’t look patchy or faded. On me, I didn’t have any fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Lectra (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Heritage Rouge (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Hidden Motive (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). City Color It's a Girl (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Plummed (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Framboise (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Brazenly (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). YSL Scandal #3 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Telepathy is described as a “bright gold with a green undertone in an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a bright, light-medium yellow gold with an almost “cool” undertone (compared to most golds, which are often orange-based) paired with a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied beautifully and was still in pristine condition after ten hours of wear. Kat Von D Prophet (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Fortune Teller (P, $9.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #3 (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Hourglass Color Field #2 (P) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Weenie is described as a “pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with full coverage and a creamy, moderately emollient texture (it felt “wetter” than most ColourPop eyeshadows). It sheered out just a wee bit when applied, but it layered well if you needed pristine, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for ten hours. Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D708 Pinky Copper (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Reward Yourself (LE, $16.50) is darker (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse #4 (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Luscious (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Quite Yummy! (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). City Color Homecoming Queen (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Catnap (-, $5.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). City Color Yas! (P, $6.99) is darker, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Stila Golden Topaz (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Divergent Peaceful Shimmer (LE) is warmer (85% similar).

Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow
Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is aptly named, as it is a pale white with an iridescent sheen that flashes pink, lavender, and blue paired with a soft, frosted finish. bareMinerals Skinny Dip (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum (Left) (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Sugar Rush (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Le Marais (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Triple Impact (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Cassiopeia (P, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Crushed Indigo (Left) (LE) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Mood Ring (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Pink Heart (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Illusion d’Ombre formula is supposed to be an “intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow.” If you’re unfamiliar with the formula, it is lightly spongy and slightly emollient, but it doesn’t feel like the traditional cream eyeshadow and is much thinner and more powder-like in how it applies and wears. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin and had semi-opaque coverage in one layer. It was buildable to opaque coverage after two layers or sheered out for more of a wash of shimmer, if desired, without issue. It lasted for nine and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.

Chanel LA Sunrise Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows

Chanel Moonlight Pink (118) Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Spring 2016 Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) are an unexpected miss. Chanel was one of the first brands to debut this type of product, where it’s a cream eyeshadow but applies and feels more like a powder on the skin with a spongy texture. It’s been a favorite for a long time, but I had serious issues with application with two of the three shades.

Chanel Moonlight Pink (118) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a softened, light-medium rosy pink with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was slightly dry compared to a lot of the range, but it applied decently. It had weak pigmentation, but it was buildable without emphasizing the lid texture. The eyeshadow started to crease after eight and a half hours of wear. Hourglass Monochrome #2 (P) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty In the Pink #2 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Wattles (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Chimere (821) (P, $31.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Pop Art Princess (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Give Me Fire (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Lancome My French #5 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Pure Bred #2 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Buxom Glitz Factor (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, brighter (80% similar). Kat Von D Killing Jar (P) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Anastasia Intense Gaze (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). NYX Golden Peach (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Lorelei (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Chanel Envol (847) (LE, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Ocean Light (122) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brighter, medium blue with fine blue glitter. It’s hard to describe why this ended up being such an atrocious product, because even in the pot, it doesn’t feel half as dry as it looks on the skin. It’s so splotchy and uneven; it applies and barely wants to blend out. I think the only way to salvage it is to use it as a base and layer much more opaque colors over it, but there are better products out there for that purpose. The color lasted for eight hours before creasing, but I had fall out over time. MAC Switch to Blue (LE, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Backstage Pass (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Blue Quartz (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Buxom Bulldog (P, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Stila Lapis (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Kimono (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Aja (LE) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I218 Indigo Blue (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Skywalk (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Azure (LE, $12.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). LORAC Cobalt (LE, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Chanel Swing (116) (P, $29.50) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Griffith Green (126) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark green-ish teal with fine gold frost. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but the texture, while it felt smooth, was difficult to blend out. I also encountered an issue where the color would lift off if I tried to blend it out along the edge (even gently). It lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly. Makeup Geek Typhoon (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Scarab (LE) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay C-Note (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Lust #2 (LE) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Whispering Ibis (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NYX Jaded (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Clarins Garden Escape #2 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Try Me On (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Damaged (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Anastasia Emerald (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Peacock (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Milani Bella Emerald (18) (P, $4.49) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Siren Blue (LE, $45.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Tarina Tarantino Very Wicked (LE) is darker (80% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Cleopatra (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft peach with pink and gold duochrome.” It’s a light peach with warm undertones and an iridescent pink sheen. It read more pink sheen than duochrome to me (I couldn’t detect as much of a shift when moving my arm). Urban Decay Blow (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Dior Rose Garden #4 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Les Precieux #2 (LE) is brighter (90% similar). Zoeva Handmade (P) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). LORAC Dream Girl #10 (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek I'm Peachless (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is darker (85% similar). Chanel Tisse d'Automne #2 (P) is darker (80% similar). Ciate Dainty (LE) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

This is the first charity product I’ve seen from ColourPop, and it was nice to see that “all proceeds from the sale of ‘Puppy Love’ will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society.” It’s part of their cream-to-powder range, which has a firm, but spongy, consistency that applies more like a powder than a traditional cream eyeshadow (it doesn’t really feel wet). The texture was thin, blendable, and spread across the skin fairly well. This one was a little drier to me than the average ColourPop eyeshadow, so it was one that needs building/layering to achieve true-to-pan intensity. It wore for ten hours without creasing or fading on me.

ColourPop Boogie Nights Super Shock Shadows (Part 2)

ColourPop Glitterati Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Glitterati Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Glitterati Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “silver undertone with gold glitter.” It’s a light silvery white with gold glitter. It is packed with larger, chunky glitter, which makes this shade more troublesome to use, as it tends to thicken on the lid and go on unevenly. It is really best applied by patting it over another shade. It is usable on its own, but I find it tends to be a little uneven and sheer in places. There was a small amount of fall out over time, though the color was going strong after ten hours. Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #2 (P) is darker (95% similar). Fyrinnae Sled Puppies (P, $6.75) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Cashmere (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #2 (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Photosphere (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Pastelluxe #1 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Shifting Sand (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D416 Crystalline Yellow (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop I Heart This (P, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Fringe (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D552 Crystalline Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). LORAC Unlocked (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Ice (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Sleigh (LE, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Reflects Gold (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Snow Flurry (LE, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Disco Ball Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “true black undertone with gold glitter.” It’s a blackened olive with lighter green and gold sparkle. It had mostly opaque coverage, but it does need two layers for truly opaque coverage. It could blend out more evenly as well, but it did last for ten hours without fading or creasing and almost no fall out. Cle de Peau Modern Era #4 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Scorpio (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Cosmic Clash (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Dior Pied de Poule #5 (P) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Greenluxe #4 (P) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Gabon (LE, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Smutty Green (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora Jungle Party (09) (P, $12.00) is darker (85% similar). Guerlain Cygne Noir #1 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Too Faced Eiffel (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Dance Party Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “smoky violet with multi-colored glitter.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with a darker, black base and multi-colored sparkle. This is a lot prettier in person than swatched, I think, as the shimmer is very multi-dimensional. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The eyeshadow was still crease-free after ten hours, and I only saw less than a handful of sparkles that had dropped over wear. Laura Mercier Violet Sugar (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Kauai #2 (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Get Physical (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). theBalm All the Way Annie (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Feel the Fever (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Gravity (LE, $19.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Plumluxe #3 (P) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).
