Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night (240) Style Eye-Con. 20 Eyeshadow Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night (240) Style Eye-Con No. 20 Palette ($99.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a very large, product-packed palette housed in a bronze-hued plastic compact. Overall, the majority of the eyeshadows were soft, blendable, pigmented, and long-wearing. For a palette with this many shades (and several of them matte!), its performance was impressive. I’m not, personally, sold on the color combination and didn’t feel like it was as versatile as last year’s The Free Spirit palette. If you’re unfamiliar with the way this palette is arranged, look at the shades as columns, as each column creates a “look.”

MAC Cherry Topped & Nice Energy Eyeshadows

MAC Cherry Topped Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkly, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly well, but the glittery bits felt grainy and loosened from the base color both in the pan as well as when I blended out the color on the lid. It wore well for eight hours with some fallout. Guerlain Crazy Paris #4 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sugarpill Decora (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Buxom Party Girl (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Cake (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Backlash (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Bright Eyes (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Totally Fetch (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Parisian Sky (506) Skyline Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Parisian Sky (506) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall that features a medium brown, warm beige, pale silver, light blue, and brown-burgundy. It’s a so-so palette; workable if you really want to exert the effort, but it’s unlikely to merit paying the price. I think if you use a primer, it is marginally improved but some of the dustiness seemed to eat right through a solid base.

Dior Capital of Light (806) Skyline Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall. It features a blackened brown, light beige, pink, light brown, and dark plum with varying degrees of shimmer–satin to frost. For a Dior palette, it was better than anticipated, though it isn’t excellent, so I imagine for some the quality at this price point doesn’t make a compelling case. The five shades worked well together, and I can see several looks from this set of shades.

MAC It’s a Strike Eyeshadows

MAC Gutter Gal Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “off-white grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a very light taupe with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very smooth, almost cream-like, and it yielded opaque color coverage. It was harder to apply evenly on the lid, as it tended to sheer out a bit once blended. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Anastasia Stone (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Come What Grey (LE) is darker, cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals Trench Coat (LE) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Pinch of Sage (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

Urban Decay Chem Trail, Horizon, Dark Cloud, Gamma Ray Moondust Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Chem Trail Moondust Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, champagne gold with warm undertones and a lightly sparkly, metallic finish. It had finer sparkle and less of it than a lot of the Moondust eyeshadows, so it was easy to work with and had no visible fall out over time (tested for eight hours). The texture was smoother and easier to work with as well. Anastasia Metal (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Cashmere (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Gold Bar (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Cool Companions #1 (LE) is less pigmented (95% similar).
