Illamasqua Sadist Eyeshadow
Illamasqua Sadist Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “matte bright royal blue.” It’s a rich, deep, medium-dark blue–there’s a little indigo/purple that tints it so it looks very cool-toned. It had a matte finish, and the color payoff was quite good. The texture was soft, finely-milled but not powdery–yet still blendable and had a lot of pigmentation. It lasted for nine hours without creasing or fading, but there was some residual staining after I removed it. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans is shimmery and darker. Sugarpill Velocity is similar but slightly lighter. Urban Decay Chaos is similar in color but has some shimmer. NARS Rated R #2 is much lighter. NARS Outremer is darker. Sugarpill Royal Sugar is a touch brighter and shimmery. Inglot #388 is darker, less blue. See comparison swatches.
Vulgar Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright flame orange, matt finish.” It’s a brightened, slightly lightened medium orange with a matte finish and warm, yellow undertones. It had really nice color payoff, and it applied smoothly and evenly. The texture was lovely; soft, finely-milled, but not at all powdery, and still it was easy to apply and blend out on the lid. Vulgar wore well for eight hours–no fading or creasing–and after nine hours, I noticed some slight fading. Disney Rajah is more shimmery, slightly darker. Maybelline Fierce & Tangy is a bit lighter and a cream product. MAC Rule is darker. Chanel Pearl River #4 is lighter, more shimmery. Make Up For Ever #10 is darker, bolder, and a cream product.
