L’Oreal Glistening Garnet Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) is a berry-tinted pink with a soft, frosted finish. When applied dry, it has a slightly more subdued, redder appearance–it’s not quite opaque. When applied damp, it takes on a pinker hue and the frosted finish is more pronounced, and the color itself is opaque. At a glance, you’d think it was similar to MAC Cranberry, but it’s not at all–Cranberry is much, much darker, more of a burgundy (so it has more brown in it than pink). MAC Moon Rose is pinker. Milani Pink Twice is pinker as well.
bareMinerals The Phenomenon Ready Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Azure Iris (prismatic lavender) and Golden Iris (illuminating amber). This is one of seven new duos for spring/summer. Each duo is packaged in a rubberized plastic compact with a full-size mirror inside and a sponge-tipped applicator. Each eyeshadow is the size of the average full-size eyeshadow (0.05 oz.).
