Illamasqua CanCan Eyeshadow

Illamasqua Can Can Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright lilac purple.” It’s a medium lilac with strong purple tones and a cool undertone. The finish is matte. Benefit Fancy Pansy is closest in color, but it’s lighter and has a shimmery finish, so it appears different. Inglot #346 is lighter, more pastel.

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette ($34.00 for 0.33 oz.) contains nine matte eyeshadows named after theBalm’s favorite Matts. It includes a small, dual-ended bristle brush, which is usable and better than sponge-tipped brushes that are often included in these kinds of palettes, but it wouldn’t replace full-sized brushes for me. The palette is small, square-ish, and made out of heavy-duty cardboard. It flips open and has a mirror under the lid.

Illamasqua Hype Eyeshadow

Illamasqua Hype Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “matte bright yellow.” This is a vibrant, bright sunshine yellow–it has a lot of warmth. There’s a slightly goldenrod tone to it. It’s not as warm or as dark as MAC Goldenrod, but it is nearly identical to Inglot #323.  Other shades of yellow I think of are either more neutral or cool-toned or else have a lot of shimmer.

OCC Acacia Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Acacia Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz. / 2.5 grams) is described as a “yellow with blue-green duochrome.” It’s a light-medium gold with yellow-brown undertones and a subtle green duochrome. The duochrome is hard to catch except at just the right angles. It can be really pretty when you do catch it, though. Bare Escentuals Remix is a bit darker, more golden, and has no duochrome. MAC Treasure Hunt is paler, less yellow. Bare Escentuals Standing O is paler. Urban Decay Eldorado is darker and has no duochrome. MAC Gorgeous Gold is the closest shade I could think of, as it also has a green-ish duochrome, though it appears a little more golden with less brown in it.

Illamasqua Burst Eyeshadow

Illamasqua Burst Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blue-green.” It’s a medium-dark that’s just barely been kissed by tones of teal. It’s more blue than it is teal or green, but it’s not just blue. Tarina Tarantino Ozma is a bit similar in color, but it has a frosted finish, so it ends up looking different. MAC Cool Heat is a little more teal and has a subtle sparkle. Urban Decay Haight is bluer. Inglot #338 is a bit darker.
