Benefit Milk It Longwear Powder Eyeshadow

Benefit Milk It Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pearly white.” It’s a neutral white with a pearly, metallic finish. There are a lot of similar white eyeshadows, but here were a few that I thought I’d mention specifically: Urban Decay Polyester Bride has a similar finish but is a touch less stark; bareMinerals Silhouette is less metallic; and NARS Self Portrait 2 is cooler-toned.

MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow

MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft pink [with a satin finish].” It’s a bold, deepened raspberry pink with a matte finish–it may be listed as a satin, but it read very matte when I applied it! MAC More Amour is more subdued, less pink. MAC Tease with Ease is cooler-toned, pinker, and satiny. MAC passionate is barely warmer–a little brighter.

MAC Silly Eyeshadow

MAC Silly Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “clean blue pink [with a frost finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with blue undertones and a mostly matte finish (there is no frost in sight). MAC Dynamic Duo #4 is a bit lighter (and so much sheerer/drier that they’re not easy to compare). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #3 is similar in color but frosted. MAC for Miss Piggy looks rather similar in the pan (but it had poorer quality, so they don’t look as much alike swatched). MAC Feather Pink is slightly lighter and has a satiny finish.

Make Up For Ever #5 is very similar. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #2 is satiny and a touch redder. Inglot #361 is pinker.
