Dior Constellation (864) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Constellation (864) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a purple-themed palette that consists of five eyeshadows with star patterns on four of the five shades. It’s part of the fall collection, Mystic Metallics, and is limited edition and exclusive to Nordstrom.  Overall, the palette was fairly good, with the center shade (the pink one) being the “worst” performer as just a so-so eyeshadow, as the color payoff was sheerer.  If you like your purples slightly warmer, this might be a palette that will interest you.  My favorite shade was #1 (upper left corner), as it’s a shade that isn’t readily duped, and it’s a versatile color.  I wore #3 on the inner third of the lid, #2 in the middle of lid, #4 on the outer lid, #1 in the crease and above the crease, and #5 directly in the crease.  All five eyeshadows lasted eight hours well (no primer), and there was only some slight fading after nine hours.

Constellation (864) #1 is a cool-toned, gray-tinged purple with a satin finish. It had nice color payoff and a soft, finely-milled texture. MAC Tropica is brighter, less gray. Tom Ford Enchanted #3 is warmer. NARS Flowers 1 #2 is slightly darker. MAC Look at the Eyes is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Constellation (864) #2 is a sparkling, golden pewter with a metallic finish. It is the sparkliest shade out of the five, but it binds well together and applies smoothly without causing fall out. MAC Greenluxe #2 is lighter, more golden. MAC Antique Diamond is darker, cream. See comparison swatches. I thought it was going to be easier to dupe, but shades I thought would be similar were much darker.

Constellation (864) #3 is a subtly warm-toned, iridescent pale pink with a metallic finish. It had decent to good color payoff and applied smoothly. MAC Joy & Laughter #1 is more frosted. MAC Seedy Pearl is pinker. MAC Young Venus is similar. MAC Maribu is more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Constellation (864) #4 is a medium-dark, shimmery purple with hints of plum and pink. It had fairly good color payoff, and while the texture had a metallic dryness to it, it was still blendable and buildable on the lid. Urban Decay Tornado is darker. theBalm All the Way Annie is less pink. MAC Plush is less shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Freakshow is a touch brighter. Urban Decay Vice is similar. MAC Highly Charged is less shimmery, cream. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #3 is similar, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Constellation (864) #5 is a muted, gray-mauve with a pearly finish–there is a very fine dusting of rose gold micro-shimmer that gives it a slight glow. It had nice pigmentation and had a soft, smooth feel. Clinique Lavish Lilac is cooler-toned, cream. Tom Ford Enchanted #3 is lighter. Illamasqua Queen of the Night is darker. Urban Decay Rapture is purpler, darker. NARS 413 BLKR #1 is similar. MAC Tendersmoke is similar. MAC Joy & Laughter #2 is grayer. MAC Smoky Mauve is pinker. Giorgio Armani #27 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Dior Bonne Etoile (384) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Bonne Etoile (384) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Bonne Etoile (384) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of five eyeshadows with star patterns on four of the five shades. It’s part of the fall collection, Mystic Metallics, and is limited edition. Right now, Nordstrom still has it available, but it is on backorder (I bought mine at Nordstrom). It’s a very nice palette overall with good color payoff across all five shades, and those that seemed good (but not perfect) were buildable on the lid. I really had no trouble applying this, and over bare skin (no primer), they lasted a full eight hours. I saw minor fading after nine hours, and if you normally wear your eyeshadow with a primer, I think you’d be fine for truly all-day wear.

Bonne Etoile (384) #1 is a warm-toned, olive green with gold, copper, and emerald green micro-shimmer. It had a pearly finish–not quite frosted. The color payoff was excellent, and the texture was and smooth. Urban Decay Zodiac is greener, more metallic. MAC Vintage Coin is similar but a cream product. MAC Humid is greener. MAC Greensmoke is slightly less warm-toned. L’oreal Golden Emerlad is much greener. Lancome Designer is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #2 is a silvered pewter with a metallic, sparkling finish. It had nice color payoff, and though it seemed almost glittery, the sparkles are finer and smoothed together well. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #1 is lighter. MAC Palladium is slightly darker and a cream product. Dior Garden Rosese #4 is darker. Sugarpill Tiara is darker. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #3 is a warm-toned, olive brown with a satin finish. It had very nice pigmentation and applied evenly and smoothly. Disney Abu is darker. Urbn Decay Snakebite is less golden. NARS Paramaribo #2 is more golden. Giorgio Armani #6 is similar. Dior Golden Savannah #4 is darker. bareMinerals Elitist is lighter. Inglot #409 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #4 is a muted, darkened blue-teal with a metallic finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and it was buildable–the texture is just slightly dry, but not dry in a stiff, difficult-to-work-with kind of way, just the type of dry that you might find with very metallic finishes. Urban Decay Shattered is much lighter. Urban Decay Hijack is very similar. MAC Emerald Dusk is bluer, more muted. Guerlain Les Aquas #1 is much darker and matte. Sugarpill Magpie is brighter, bluer. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #5 is a soft, meadowy green with a strong, golden metallic sheen. It had good color payoff and a smooth, even application. Disney Cinderelly is warmer, less shimmery. MAC Sweet & Sour is darker. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Hasard (99) Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Hasard (99) Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “matte lavender.” It’s a muted, plummy mauve with a matte finish. theBalm Just This Once Jamie is warmer, browner. Disney Carpet is purpler. MAC Swelter is also purpler. NARS Charade #1 is warmer. MAC Universal Appeal is darker, more shimmery. MAC Daylight is more shimmery. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparansse #5 is slightly lighter, pinker. See comparison swatches.

The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled. It had a silky feel and blended easily on the skin. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it can be sheered out if desired, because it has such a blendable texture.  Hasard seems like a great shade for fall, and I’m curious to see how Gri-Gri looks beside it (I just bought it last night, so hopefully I get it early next week).  I thought it was going to be more dupable, but between the matte finish and the balance between pink, plum, and mauve, it wasn’t as readily duped.  It lasted eight hours without creasing, but there was some faint fading at that point, and then more noticeable fading after nine hours.

Inglot #123R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan

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.

#123R Top is a brightened, medium orange with a satiny finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and finely-milled. MAC Ablaze is redder. Dior Pareo is similar. See comparison swatches.

#123R Middle is a medium-dark orange-red with a satin finish. The pigmentation was true-to-pan and very rich, while the texture was blendable and soft. NARS Persia is darker. MAC Red Brick is matte. MAC Orange is brighter. See comparison swatches.

#123R Bottom is a deeper orange-red with a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff with a soft, finely-milled feel. NARS Persia is darker. MAC Orange is very similar. See comparison swatches.

bareMinerals The Power of Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Power Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette
bareMinerals The Power Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Power Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows with a neutral color-scheme. They’re part of the bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow range, which means they’re supposed to have rich color with 12-hour long-wear. I wore several shades from the palette, and they wore well for ten hours, but after a full twelve hours, there was some very slight fading. Generally, all of the eyeshadows had good color payoff and were very soft and smooth to the touch–so a couple of shades were just a smidgen powdery but did not look that way on the lid or sheer out too easily.

Boss Lady is described as a “shimmer bronze.” (That’s what the website says, but I think it’s a mistake.) It’s a pale, light peachy-beige with a satin finish and subtle warm undertones. It had excellent color payoff and a soft, smooth texture. theBalm Matt Smith is less shimmery. L’Oreal Promiscuous Pearl is more shimmery. theBalm Adagio is more matte. Urban Decay Anonymous is similar. MAC Phloof is cooler-toned, more shimmery. Dior Fairy Golds #1 is more shimmery. bareMinerals Serendipitous is warmer. Inglot #352 is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Moneymaker is described as a “dusty olive.” It’s a deepened but subdued khaki brown with the merest hint of green and a mostly matte finish. The color payoff was nice, and the texture was soft and finely-milled. theBalm Lead Zeppelin is more shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Snare is grayer, more shimmery. Dior Khaki Design #1 is darker. Burberry Khaki is warmer, lighter. bareMinerals Utopia is much greener. Make Up For Ever #47 is also much greener. Make Up For Ever #148 is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Schmooze is described as a “bronze sheen.” It’s a medium-dark bronze brown with a subtle warm, golden champagne shimmer and sheen. The color payoff was fantastic, and the texture had a really soft, buttery feel. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #2 is warmer. theBalm Stand-offish is lighter. Urban Decay Spotlight is similar. MAC Cactus Thorn is warmer. Burberry Pale Barley is similar. See comparison swatches.

Boardroom is described as a “deep chocolate.” It’s a dark brown with subtle red undertones and a matte finish. This was the “worst” shade in the palette, as it was a bit dry and stiff compared to the others. The color payoff, as a result, was only so-so, but it does apply better with a fluffier brush and wasn’t difficult to blend out with a brush. Urban Decay Muse is more shimmery. MAC Midnight Flurry is similar. MAC Dance in the Dark is darker. MAC Showstopper is not as warm-toned. MAC Diamond Dove is similar. bareMinerals Foreshadow is also similar. Inglot #363 is lighter. Inglot #326 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Exec is described as a “polished slate.” It’s a medium taupe with a satin-matte finish–there’s a very hint of sheen but it’s so subtle that it ends up looking more matte. It had nice pigmentation and felt very smooth and soft. MAC Bossa Blue is darker, warmer. Disney Midnight Hour #4 is darker. Disney Kill Joy is similar. Urban Decay Mushroom is darker, more shimmery. MAC Electroplate is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Payday is described as a “light granite.” It’s a pale beige with a gray cast and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff and a soft, smooth texture. MAC Rainy Season is very similar. Inglot #350 is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Suspense is darker. See comparison swatches.

Magnate is described as a “nude peach.” It’s a warm-toned, beige-peach with a satin finish. It’s warmer than Boss Lady and slightly darker. Kat Von D Vespertine is brighter. Urban Decay ABC Gum is darker. NARS Night Star is similar. NARS Biarritz is more beige. bareMinerals Stealth is slightly darker and more orange. Inglot #390 is similar, slightly more beige. See comparison swatches.

Get Ahead is described as a “rustic taupe.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff and applied smoothly and evenly. Kat Von D Wolf is darker. Urban Decay Bewitch is also darker. Urban Decay Faint is more yellow-toned. NARS Self Portrait 3 #1 is redder in tone. Make Up For Ever #17 is warmer, richer. Inglot #360 is warmer. Bobbi Brown Stone is very comparable. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Pressed & Loose)

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Loose)
Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Loose)

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Loose) ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “lush deep ocean blue with a flash of sage green.” It’s a bluish-teal with a flash of green-gold shimmer and sparkle. It has a frosted, slightly metallic, sheen. The color payoff applied damp or over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy was fully opaque. Disney Caspian Sea is lighter. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #3 is cooler-toned. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen is similar. MAC Parrot is brighter. Inglot #413 is more muted, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Pressed Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is a pressed version of the loose version mentioned above. I highly recommend Fyrinnae’s Pressed Eyeshadows if you’ve always been curious about the brand but are not keen on loose eyeshadows. The loose eyeshadow version is slightly more complex, but it’s only slightly noticeable when swatched and seen side-by-side in person and really not apparent on the lid. The biggest difference is the loose version sparkles more–it just seems to catch and reflect the light a bit better, so it also appears a smidgen lighter and the “flash of sage green” is more noticeable at times. The texture is slightly silkier with the loose version.

The pressed version wore better without a base than the loose one, as it had less fall out, though neither of them were faded or creased after eight hours of wear. Applied over Pixie Epoxy, there was no distinguishable difference in wear; no fall out, creasing, or fading. Note, Pixie Epoxy is designed the work primarily as an adhesive base, so it is not a substitute for a primer. If you have oilier lids, you may want to layer a primer underneath. (I just haven’t found I need a primer underneath to get long-wear out of them, but I have normal-to-dry lids!) Fyrinnae does not claim long-wear with this and recommends a primer and Pixie Epoxy when wearing their eyeshadows for long-lasting wear and minimal fall out.
