Guerlain Taupe Secret (01) Eyeshadow
Guerlain Taupe Secret (01) Eyeshadow

Guerlain Mono Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a recently released range of single eyeshadows. I bought three of them to try, and if you notice the pattern on the monos are the same as some of the recent limited edition quads (which I have had some issues with), and these are just okay. They’re average eyeshadows, which doesn’t make them compelling at $34 a pop given they’re somewhat powdery, prone to sheering out, and have below-average wear (six hours). The major selling point of the formula is that it’s supposed to “stay all day long,” but it’s the type of powder eyeshadow formula that feels like my eyelids are “eating” them as they just don’t last.

Guerlain Taupe Secret (01) Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, gray-leaning taupe with subtle, warm, almost mauve-y undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was soft and almost crumbly as a result, so it was somewhat powdery and easily sheered out when applied to the lid. If you wanted better color payoff, a lightly tacky base or cream eyeshadow would help tremendously. On me, it had creased after six hours of wear. Tarte Steel the Scene (LE) is darker. Dior House of Pinks #4 (LE) is pinker. MAC Divine Rule (LE, $16.00) is very similar. Gucci Beauty Sasso (P, $37.00) is darker, grayer, more sparkly.Urban Decay Angel (LE, $18.00) is slightly darker. Make Up For Ever I550 Olive Gray (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. NARS Callisto (P, $29.00) is brighter, more metallic. MAC French Clay (P, $16.00) is warmer. Dior Golden Snow #4 (LE) is more metallic, pinker. Giorgio Armani Shimmer Greige (LE) Dior Fairy Golds #4 (LE) See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Hey Nude (04) Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium beige with warm, peach undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a very soft, moderately powdery texture that kicked up a lot of excess product. It was buildable on the lid, though you have to be careful of how much you blend, as it can sheer out. On me, it lasted for five hours. Colour Pop Cornelious (LE, $5.00) is darker, cream. Becca Ombre Nudes #2 (P) is similar. Tarte You’re a Natural (LE) is similar. MAC Georgia Peach (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Hourglass Infinity #2 (P) is darker. Tarte Force of Nature (LE) is darker. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #1 (P, $30.00) is slightly darker. MAC Kid (P, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Khaki Mono (07) Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a murky, medium-dark olive green with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation and was the best-performing shade of the three I tried. The texture was smoother and less powdery, so it had better hold and didn’t sheer out when applied to the skin. This shade lasted for seven hours on me. Anastasia Anaconda (LE, $12.00) is warmer. Guerlain Les Precieux #1 (LE) is darker. Hourglass Color Field #5 (P) is darker. Sephora + Pantone Universe Dusty Olive (LE) is brighter. Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #3 (LE) is lighter. MAC Cool Companions #2 (LE) is cooler-toned. YSL Avant Garde #1 (P) is lighter. MAC Greensmoke (P, $16.00) is slightly darker. Inglot #419 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery.

MAC Green Clean Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio
MAC Green Clean Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio

MAC Green Clean Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio ($27.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a green-themed set of shades that ranges from a light, washed-out green, chartreuse, and olive green. The three shades worked well together, and I liked that the finishes varied a bit. The formula is inconsistent with the color payoff, but the three shades wore well on the eyelid and were fairly easy to use, so if the variance in opacity doesn’t bother you, it may still be worth a look if you’re a big fan of green.

Green Clean #1 is described as a “pale white-green.” It’s a light-medium, soft green with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had very sheer color payoff applied dry, and it was semi-sheer applied damp. It was buildable up to semi-opaque coverage with two to three passes when used damp. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. Make Up For Ever I318 Linen Khaki (P, $21.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever D316 Crystalline Pinky Green (P, $21.00) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #4 (P) is cooler-toned. Tarina Tarantino Secret Pond (LE) is less shimmery. Fyrinnae Electric Stardust (P, $6.80) is cooler-toned. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 (LE) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Wicked (P) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Green Clean #2 is described as a “lime.” It’s a brightened, chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation both wet and dry, though damp application gave it a stronger sheen. (The formula is supposed to be sheer when used dry.) The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on the lid, while the color adhered well and didn’t start to fade until after eight and a half hours of wear. Colour Pop Sour (P, $5.00) is a cream product. MAC Lisa’s Spikes (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever S336 Lime (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned, darker, less shimmery. Make Up For Ever I340 Lime Green (P, $21.00) is brighter. NARS Tropical Princess #1 (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery. MAC Chartreuse Bouquet (LE, $21.00) is slightly brighter. Kat Von D Birdcage (LE) is similar. NARS Rated R #1 (P, $24.00) is darker, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Green Clean #3 is described as a “deep khaki with gold pearl.” It’s a muted, medium-dark olive green with warm, brown tones and a golden sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied dry, and it was more intense and darker applied damp, but the coverage level didn’t get much higher. It was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product both wet and dry. The texture was soft, but it could have been more blendable. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Kat Von D Covenant (LE) is darker. LORAC Jade (P) is similar. MAC Olive Blend #2 (LE) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Smoky Emerald (P) is a cream product. Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #1 (LE) is darker. theBalm Lead Zeppelin (P, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Permanent Press Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio
MAC Permanent Press Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio

MAC Permanent Press Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio ($27.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a mix of muted white, brown, and taupe. I liked that the darkest shade had less sparkle/shimmer, which enables the trio to have more depth when used as a trio. Unfortunately, that darker shade was a little more difficult to blend compared to the other two more shimmery shades. The color payoff ranges from sheer to mostly opaque, depending on whether you use it dry or wet, which is as described. All three eyeshadows wore for eight hours on me, regardless of whether I used them dry or wet.

Permanent Press #1 is described as a “white beige.” It’s a cool-toned, subdued white with a frosted, slightly metallic finish. Applied dry, it was sheer, while damp application was semi-opaque. The color was buildable to full coverage when used damp and layered. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable, and the eyeshadow wore well for eight hours before fading. YSL Eau d’Argent (02) (P, $30.00) is a cream. Colour Pop Acorn (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery. Chanel L’Intemporel de Chanel #5 (LE) is less shimmery. Guerlain Les Nuees #2 (LE) is brighter. Colour Pop Tassel (P, $5.00) is lighter. Guerlain Cygne Blanc #2 (LE) is lighter. Make Up For Ever ME122 Snow (P, $21.00) is lighter. Chanel Tisse Camelia #2 (P) is less shimmery. LORAC Snow (P) is lighter. MAC A Waft of Grey #1 (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Smoked Cocoa #1 (LE, $16.00) is similar. MAC Pearl (LE, $32.50) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Permanent Press #2 is described as a “calm brown-bronze.” It’s a muted, medium brown with a warm, golden metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation when applied dry, and it was mostly opaque when applied with a damp brush. The texture became more metallic when it was applied damp, though it was smooth and buildable with both methods. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before fading slightly. Giorgio Armani Cold Copper (09) (P, $38.00) is a cream. Burberry Nude (No. 002) (P, $29.00) is darker. Laura Mercier Topaz (P) is darker. MAC English Gilt (LE, $21.00) is more metallic. LORAC Smokey Topaz (LE) is darker. Ardency Inn Vintage Gold (P, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery. NARS Himalia (P, $29.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Crushed Clove (P, $16.00) is similar. Sleek MakeUP Court in Cannes (LE, $9.99) is warmer. MAC Cactus Thorn (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery. bareMinerals A-Ha (P) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Permanent Press #3 is described as a “black with gold pearl.” It’s a medium-dark, taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen with faint shimmer. It had sheer coverage applied dry, while damp application yielded opaque results. The texture of this was a little stiffer, and it wasn’t as easily blended as the other two shades. Once on, though, the color didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear. Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #4 (LE) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #08 (P, $32.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #4 (P) is lighter. MAC Just Before Dawn (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC 2x Dare #5 (LE) is more sparkly. MAC Keep Your Cool (DC, $21.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Wanderlust (P) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Warm Wash Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio
MAC Warm Wash Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio

MAC Warm Wash Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio ($27.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a warm-toned set of shades that range from golden beige to copper. This eyeshadow formula is supposed to give “sheer coverage with a soft finish” when applied dry and “super saturation of colour with metallic brilliance” when applied wet. My experience with this formula is that sometimes it can be really nice, other times it is a total miss. I think they are most practical used damp or over a slightly tacky base if you want to use them dry. They’re actually longer-wearing than you might think, given how they feel and swatch, but I usually get seven to eight hours of crease-free wear. The other thing I’ve noticed with the Veluxe Pearlfusion palettes has been an inclination to repeat shades (either intentionally or they just have ended up very similar to a previously release).

Warm Wash #1 is described as a “white with orange-gold pearl.” It’s a light beige with warm, golden micro-sparkle and shimmer. It is very sheer applied dry, and then semi-sheer applied damp. It was somewhat buildable on the lid to semi-opaque coverage with a fairly dampened brush, and it lasted for eight hours. Guerlain White Sand (LE, $32.00) is a cream product. Surratt Beauty Soie (P, $20.00) is more shimmery. Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma (P, $5.99) is similar. Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #1 (LE) is less shimmery. MAC Satin Ochre (Left) (LE) is lighter. Chanel Poesie #2 (LE) is lighter. MAC Just Gleaming (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Sweet Sovereign (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Trusted Instinct #1 (LE) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P) is similar. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE) is similar. MAC Amberluxe #1 (P) is similar. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #2 (P) is lighter. Cle de Peau #119 (LE, $45.00) is similar. MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE) is lighter. MAC Vanilla Diamond (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Smokeluxe #1 (P) is lighter. MAC Greenluxe #1 (P) is lighter. MAC Brownluxe #1 (P) is lighter, less sparkly. MAC Dew (LE, $16.00) is similar. MAC Shroom (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Warm Wash #2 is described as a “copper gold bronze.” It’s a muted, copper brown with warm, orange-red undertones and larger copper sparkle over a metallic finish. The texture was flaky, where the sparkle tended to separate from the powder base, which made dry application particularly frustrating (lots of fall out), and even damp application, while certainly closer to full coverage, had fall out over time. The color lasted for eight hours without creasing. Colour Pop KathleenLights (LE, $5.00) is less sparkly, cream. MAC Bao Bao’s Jewels #3 (LE) is darker, less sparkly. Sugarpill Penelope (P, $13.00) is brighter. LORAC Unleashed (P) is lighter. Makeup Geek Grandstand (P, $9.99) is less glittery, more muted. Colour Pop Sequin (P, $5.00) is darker, cream. Tarte Candlelit Dinner (LE) is less sparkly. Make Up For Ever ME728 Copper Red (P, $21.00) is less sparkly. Make Up For Ever ME700 Amber (P, $21.00) is lighter, less sparkly. LORAC Nude #2 (LE) is less sparkly. MAC A Glimmer of Gold #3 (P, $21.00) is less sparkly. Urban Decay Half Baked (P, $18.00) is lighter, less sparkly. bareMinerals Louder (LE) is darker, less sparkly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Warm Wash #3 is described as a “peachy orange.” It’s a slightly muted, medium orange with warm, gold and orange pearly shimmer. The finish wasn’t fully metallic, but it was a little more reflective than a true pearl finish, I think. It had very sheer coverage applied dry, and it was semi-opaque when applied damp. It wore well for eight hours. Anastasia Orange You Fancy (LE, $12.00) is darker. Kat Von D Platonic (LE) is lighter. Makeup Geek Sin City (LE, $5.99) is darker. Makeup Geek Casino (LE, $5.99) is yellower. Make Up For Ever I724 Rust (P, $21.00) is darker. Dior Sundeck #3 (LE) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Trumpette (LE) is similar. Fyrinnae Pyromantic Erotica (P, $6.80) is darker. MAC Fresh Daily (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Chessa (LE, $16.00) is darker. Chanel Pearl River #4 (LE) is similar. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Mimosa (P, $14.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever #2 Colors You Crave Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever #2 Colors You Crave Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever #2 Colors You Crave Artist Palette ($42.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows and two blushes–yes, two shades are technically blushes–in an assortment of colors tempered by lighter neutrals and deeper, richer hues. I would only consider three of the ten shades to be truly bright, and two of those are the blushes. Four are more neutral, and then two shades are darker colors, but the depth makes them smokier and intense but muted. I think the palette is less intimidating for someone who isn’t as used to bright eyeshadows. The two blush shades are actually the two weakest performers in the palette, with one being a little under-performing and the other being unimpressive. The eight eyeshadows are very good, with four receiving perfect scores. That purple blush almost made me withhold my recommendation, but the other shades are that good.

I wish Make Up For Ever had included two other, vibrant eyeshadows rather than two blushes, though–perhaps two of these: ME338 Acidic Green, ME304 Emerald, I238 Blue Cedar, or D826 Fig. They could have also used a different neutral than ME512 Golden Beige, as it is also in the Nudes You Need palette, and they have plenty of golden-beige kind of shades to choose from. I would have also liked to see one or two more mattes/satins included here–7 of the 10 are of the metallic family.

The value of the palette is $141.75 based on $21/0.08 oz., though Make Up For Ever has a discounting system if you buy two or three (plus the coordinating case) individuals at a time. Based on that, you could get three for $44 or $44/0.24 oz., which would give the palette a value of $99. Another way to look at it is the cost of purchasing all nine individually, and presuming you buy in trios to maximize your discount, you would spend $132. As long as you’d use at least three shades in it, then you’ll pay less than purchasing the three as singles (you would get more product, but a little goes a long way with these).

I872 Pearly Pink is a very light, pinky-white with a pearly sheen–just shy of a truly metallic finish. It had rich color payoff with a really smooth, buttery texture that was incredibly easy to use on the skin. The color wore well for nine hours before creasing very slightly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

D552 Crystalline Gray Beige is a warm-toned, golden pewter with a sparkling, metallic finish. There is very slight sparkle to it, but the texture is dense enough to support the sparkle and actually keep it adhered to the skin with the most minimal fall out, even after nine hours of wear (like two sparkles). It was nicely pigmented with a creamy, blendable texture. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME512 Golden Beige is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy texture that just applied so well to the lid. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME910 Electric Magenta is a bright, fuchsia-magenta with cool, blue undertones and an iridescent violet sheen. It had good pigmentation, but it wasn’t as rich as the average Artist Shadow, and the texture felt thinner and less blendable as a result. The texture of my individual pan seemed better with a creamier, easier-to-use texture. It still wore well as a blush for eight and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME232 Turquoise Blue is a brightened, medium aqua-blue with a hint of warmer green undertones and a frosted finish. It was intensely pigmented with a beautifully blendable, buttery texture. It wore well for nine and a half hours before creasing very slightly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME700 Amber is a golden copper with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The color payoff was fantastic with rich, full color coverage. The texture felt creamy, dense, and remained very blendable on the eyelid. It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading a bit. This is an incredibly dupable color, though this version is excellent. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

S924 Purple is a brightened, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a satin-matte finish. The texture was thinner and drier, and it was harder to really apply this one evenly as a blush, as it didn’t blend easily. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was noticeably weaker than the individual I have of it. My single of this shade was also more blendable, though it wasn’t the best Artist Shadow for blendability that I’ve tried. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME302 Peacock is a blackened, brown-black with green-teal frost. The texture is incredibly cream-like, despite being a powder eyeshadow, and goes on as such: blendable, fully pigmented, and smooth. It wore well for ten hours before creasing. This shade was more pigmented and has a stronger bluish tone to its shimmer than my single, though when I blended the one in the palette out more, it appeared slightly greener. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME930 Black Purple is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had fully opaque color coverage with a cream-like, buttery texture. It felt creamier in the palette than when it released in the Artist Palette of it feels with a smoother sheen–almost as if the base is stronger and covers the shimmer a bit more–but it is more comparable to my single, though the palette version seems creamier still. It wore well for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Fortune Teller Foiled Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Fortune Teller Foiled Eyeshadow

Here are the last four shades of the newly released Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) shades! :) As previously mentioned, the formula is designed as a cross between a powder and cream eyeshadow, and it’s supposed to have “intense pigmentation” with a “smooth, silky” texture. The brand has stated that those with oilier skin types will need a primer as these are prone to creasing due to the ingredients used in it. My testing showed that this formula creased faster over primers like Urban Decay Primer Potion and NARS Smudgeproof compared to just applying them to my bare lids, which are normal-to-dry. When applied over MAC Painterly Paint Pot, wear seemed to extend for about two hours longer than on bare lids.

Makeup Geek Starry Eyed Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “light champagne beige with slight pink undertones and a foiled finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium beige with hints of peach, warm undertones, and a frosted sheen. It had great color payoff that went on very smoothly. The texture was dense, thicker, and very smooth, but it sometimes can emphasize the texture of the lids if you over-apply it. Over NARS/Urban Decay primers, it lasted for five hours; on bare lids, seven hours; and over MAC Painterly, nine hours. Surratt Beauty Soie (P, $20.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani Gold Ashes (12) (P, $38.00) is lighter. NARS Valhalla (P, $24.00) is lighter. Tarte Champagne Bubble Bath (LE) is lighter. Anastasia Blush (LE, $12.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $18.00) is pinker. Stila Kitten (P) is very similar. Divergent Humble Sheen (LE) is pinker. theBalm #7 (P, $6.50) is warmer. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #2 (P) is lighter. Urban Decay Sin (P, $18.00) is lighter. MAC Summer Haze (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Sweet Heat (P, $20.00) is pinker. Benefit RSVP (P, $10.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Fortune Teller Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “true yellow gold with a foiled finish.” It’s a brightened, true yellow gold with subtle warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth texture that was easily blended on the skin. It wore for five and a half hours over NARS/Urban Decay primers, seven and a half hours over bare lids, and nine and a half hours over MAC Painterly. LORAC Unlimited (P) is warmer. Anastasia Gold Bar (P, $12.00) is lighter, less metallic. Make Up For Ever ME406 Golden (P, $21.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #5 (P, $9.99) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P) is cooler-toned, lighter. Disney by Sephora Triton (LE) is less shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Honey (DC, $18.00) is darker. NARS Corcovado (P, $24.00) is a cream product. MAC Gorgeous Gold (P, $16.00) is lighter.

Makeup Geek Untamed Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “bright coppery orange with warm undertones and a foiled finish warm coppery bright orange.” It’s a vibrant, copper gold with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. This shade had a lot of richness and depth to the color. It was intensely pigmented and really smooth and creamy to the touch. It wore for five and a half hours over NARS/Urban Decay primers, seven and a half hours on bare skin, and nine and a half overs over MAC Painterly. Colour Pop KathleenLights (LE, $5.00) is darker. Urban Decay Heat (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Butterum (LE) is lighter. Too Faced Caramel (P, $16.00) is lighter.

Makeup Geek Charmed Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “muted silvery light olive with taupe undertones and a foiled finish.” It’s a dirty, green-ish pewter with warm, khaki undertones and a metallic sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, but it wasn’t as opaque as other shades in the launch. The texture was soft, creamy, and blendable on the skin. On me, it lasted for five hours over NARS/Urban Decay Primer Potion, seven and a half hours over bare skin, and nine hours over MAC Painterly. This was one of the more unique shades in the collection. Giorgio Armani Onyx (05) (P, $38.00) is darker, cream. Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #3 (LE) is darker, less shimmery. Colour Pop Snow Flurry (P, $5.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Division (LE) is darker. Hello Kitty Cookie (LE) is slightly warmer. Kat Von D Melancholia (P) is darker. Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is lighter. MAC Cakeshop (LE) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
