MAC She Sparkles Dazzleshadow
MAC She Sparkles Dazzleshadow

MAC Dazzleshadow ($21.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a new formula that launches online on June 11th and hits stores on June 18th (July for international locations). The formula is supposed to have “rich pigments [that] adhere to the lid” with a “twinkling sheen.” The “liquidform ‘bridge’ texture” gives it “superior adhesion and performance, minimizing fallout.” MAC didn’t note whether they could be used with a damp brush, though I used all with a damp brush (as well as dry and over primer), and I didn’t notice any adverse changes to the surface texture of any of the shades. The texture has a slightly emollient feel, but it is primarily a powder eyeshadow. It’s not really gritty, as the sparkles are flatter and less textured, but it’s not quite smooth like your traditional powder eyeshadow, because it is packed with sparkle. A lot of the shades had more of a duochrome nature and others shifted based on the amount of sparkle (the sparkly bits reflected light more, giving the color a lighter appearance at certain angles but not a real color shift).

The wear is poor when used dry; there is a fair amount of fall out as well as creasing within six hours, and there’s a tendency for the color to sheer out as it is blended on the lid. Even just applying the eyeshadow with a damp brush improves the wear to eight hours with minor creasing and less fall out but still a moderate amount. I also used Too Faced’s Glitter Glue, which these are harder to blend over (workable but requires extra brushes), but the primer intensifies the base color while making the finish appear more sparkly, even from the get-go. I think these are easier to work with when you’re only using one or two shades, but using them altogether with no other powder eyeshadows was a little more challenging, as they do not blend out as evenly as the glittery bits tend to give the edge a rougher, more uneven look as some bits of sparkle are spread but not the rest.

I think they’re an improvement as far as your standard powder eyeshadow that has sparkle or glitter in it (think of MAC Lustres as a good example), but it’s not a perfect formula. You’ll still want to use a good, slightly tacky base underneath to maximize the performance of both color payoff as well as wear. It is also comparable to several other formulas on the market in terms of feel and performance: Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow, MAC Pressed Pigments, Urban Decay Moondust, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, Gucci.

MAC She Sparkles Dazzleshadow ($21.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “light grey with silver sparkles.” It’s a muted, light-medium pewter with warm, beige tones paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. This was one of the better shades in the collection, as it had a stronger base color and less sparkle, which resulted in stronger color payoff, better application, and less fall out. It wore well for seven hours before creasing (worn dry), eight hours (worn damp), ten hours (with adhesive primer). Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery. MAC Palladium (LE, ) is less shimmery. Guerlain Two Stylish #1 (P, ) is lighter, warmer. Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE, ) is warmer. Dior Etoile (021) (P, $31.00) is lighter. Sephora Collection Lunar Eclipse (98) (P, $13.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Telepathy (P, ) is lighter, warmer. Make Up For Ever D552 Crystalline Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer. Tarte C’est La Vie (LE, ) is warmer. Colour Pop I Heart This (P, $5.00) is warmer. Hourglass Graphite #5 (P, ) is lighter, warmer. Colour Pop Ice (LE, $5.00) is warmer. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #4 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer. Sugarpill Tiara (P, $13.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Boom Boom Room Dazzleshadow ($21.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “light burgundy with emerald sparkles.” It’s a reddish-burgundy with warm, coppery undertones paired with fine green shimmer that shifts from copper-brown to bluish-teal. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry, which amplified to semi-opaque applied damp, but it is a very sparkly shade, so the fall out during wear was noticeable. It lasted for six hours (worn dry), seven hours (worn damp), ten hours (with adhesive primer). Urban Decay Solstice (P, $20.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Feel the Fever Dazzleshadow ($21.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “deep blue purple with pink sparkles.” It’s a muted, purply taupe with cooler undertones and multi-colored shimmer and sparkle, primarily blue and pink. It had the same color coverage applied dry as it did damp, which was mostly opaque. The texture was lightly emollient with good glide and adhesion, but it adheres better damp as it goes on smoother and the sparkles seem to bind better with the underlying color. There was a fair amount of fall out after six hours when worn dry, a little less fall out when worn damp where it lasted for closer to seven hours. I had minor fall out and longer wear (ten hours) when applied over a glitter adhesive. MAC Get Physical (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Electroplate (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC 2x Dare #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Dangerous Cuvee (P, $18.50) is lighter, warmer. MAC Grand Galaxy (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Too Faced Sugar Plum Fairy (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Too Faced Nashville (P, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Fathoms Deep (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, cooler. Maybelline Black Orchid (130) (LE, $6.99) is less shimmery, lighter. Giorgio Armani Shadow (07) (P, $38.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Ether (P, $20.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Darkstar (LE, ) is less shimmery. Colour Pop Meow (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, warmer. First 15 dupes listed previously, see even more dupes: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Say It Isn’t So Dazzleshadow ($21.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “dark grey with pink sparkles.” It’s a muted, medium-dark gray with silver and pink sparkle over a metallic finish. It was very sparkly, so applied dry, it was less pigmented and more prone to fall out during wear and creased within six hours. Applied damp, it was easier to work with, as it adhered better and lasted a little longer (seven hours) with fall out but not as much as dry application. It wore for ten hours over a glitter adhesive with minimal fall out. Kat Von D Piaf (LE, ) is less shimmery. MAC Tundra (LE, ) is less shimmery. L’Oreal Liquid Diamond (P, $7.99) is less shimmery, lighter. bareMinerals Gunmetal (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. MAC Bao Bao’s Jewels #5 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Sleek MakeUP Acid #11 (P, $9.99) is less shimmery. NARS Jardin Perdu (Left) (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Get Physical Dazzleshadow ($21.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a “purple with light blue sparkles.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with warmer, plummy undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was mostly opaque. I had some fall out by the end of six hours when I wore it dry, and then slightly less but still noticeable fall out after seven hours when I wore it damp. Over a glitter adhesive, it lasted closer to ten hours with minimal fall out. MAC Grand Galaxy (P, $20.00) is less shimmery. MAC Feel the Fever (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. Sugarpill Strangeling (P, $13.00) is lighter, brighter. Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, brighter. NARS Jardin Perdu (Right) (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. Urban Decay Hoodoo (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, lighter. NARS Canberra (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Plumluxe #3 (P, ) is warmer. MAC Feel the Fever (LE, $21.00) is lighter, brighter.

LORAC Dream Girl Eyeshadow Palette
LORAC Dream Girl Eyeshadow Palette

LORAC Dream Girl Eyeshadow Palette ($24.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes ten eyeshadows, with two of those being oversized (the “highlighters”) in a range of neutrals and pops of color with the palette leaning warm in undertone. Some of the shades were easy to use, while others were prone to sheering out when applied to bare skin and really needed an eyeshadow primer or slightly tacky white base to pop/look their best.

Dream Girl #1 is a buttery, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had a soft, denser texture that was smooth and blendable on the skin while adhering well. It wore well for eight hours. bareMinerals Standing O (P, ) is less shimmery. Hourglass Color Field #2 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Canter (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Brass Knuckles (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Gucci Beauty Antique Gold (P, $37.00) is darker, cooler. Anastasia Legend (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Make Up For Ever ME512 Golden Beige (P, $21.00) is darker. MAC Golden Hours #3 (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE, ) is darker, warmer. MAC Captivating #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer. bareMinerals Rising Star (LE, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #2 is a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, so it had sheerer color coverage on the skin. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Viseart Marais (P, ) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Riff (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. Viseart Brique (P, ) is darker, brighter. Colour Pop Desert (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Make Up For Ever S706 Milk Toffee (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Sable Riche (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Dior Atlantique #5 (LE, ) is darker. Disney by Sephora Bazaar (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. MAC One to Watch (P, $21.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #3 is a light-medium coral-orange with a pearly, golden sheen. It had so-so pigmentation with a dusty consistency that made it prone to sheering out when applied. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. MAC Paradisco (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Paradisco (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #6 (P, ) is darker, cooler. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P, ) is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Freelove (P, $18.00) is cooler. Makeup Geek Cosmopolitan (P, $5.99) is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #4 is a muted, medium-dark bluish-teal with a mostly matte finish. The texture was powdery and thin, which made this apply poorly on bare skin. It was better patted over another shade or else applied over an eyeshadow primer or white base. It showed signs of fading after six and a half hours on me. Makeup Geek Shark Bait (P, $5.99) is darker. theBalm C2 (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Inglot #338 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #5 is a light-medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a really soft consistency that made it prone to thickening on the skin if you over-applied, so I highly recommend using less than you think you need, as it is quite pigmented with little product. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours. Makeup Geek Untamed (P, $9.99) is darker, brighter. Colour Pop KathleenLights (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. LORAC Unleashed (P, ) is darker, warmer. Tarte Candlelit Dinner (LE, ) is darker. Sephora + Pantone Universe Butterum (LE, ) is warmer. Make Up For Ever ME700 Amber (P, $21.00) is lighter. LORAC Nude #2 (LE, ) is darker. MAC A Glimmer of Gold #3 (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Exquisite Ego #2 (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Brownluxe #3 (P, ) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #6 is a brightened, medium lavender purple with warm, pink undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. There was micro-glitter in this shade, so there was some fall out over time, though the underlying color lasted for eight hours.
Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Parallel Universe (Right) (LE, $24.00) is lighter. Colour Pop Dasher (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. Too Faced Live It Up (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. L’Oreal With a Twist (LE, $7.99) is darker. MAC Tropica (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler. MAC Cheers My Dear (LE, $21.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Light Violet (LE, $32.50) is lighter. MAC Butterfly Party (LE, $32.50) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #7 is a softened, light-medium olive green with warm, golden pearl. It had decent color payoff, though it had a drier, thinner consistency that made it easily sheered out on the skin without a base. Makeup Geek Jester (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker. Sephora + Pantone Universe Kelp (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. Makeup Geek Poison Ivy (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, darker. MAC 2 Dozen and One Greyhounds (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P, ) is darker. theBalm #16 (P, $6.50) is darker. Make Up For Ever I324 Bronze Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. Tarina Tarantino Dandy Lion (LE, ) is darker. Gucci Beauty Mosaic (P, $37.00) is darker. Colour Pop Mirage (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Hourglass Color Field #4 (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dream Girl #8 is a dark bronzy brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, slightly dense texture that really needs to be pressed into the skin and must be laid down prior to any other shades. When I tried to blend it over a more satiny shade (from the palette), it applied as a crumbly brown and was harder to blend. The color wore well for eight hours. Zoeva Subtle Blend (P, ) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Aladdin’s Lamp (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker. Urban Decay Reign (LE, $18.00) is darker. Too Faced Cinnamon Sugar (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter.

See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

It had a softer, blendable texture that was a little dusty on the skin and faded after seven and a half hours of wear. theBalm D2 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Summer Honey (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #2 (P, ) is darker, warmer. theBalm #18 (P, $6.50) is warmer. theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Angelic Cockatiels Long-Lasting Eyeshadow
Rouge Bunny Rouge Angelic Cockatiels Long-Lasting Eyeshadow

Rouge Bunny Rouge Angelic Cockatiels Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “metallic finish golden honey.” It’s a muted, light-medium copper brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft and blendable, but it was drier and dusty to work with, so it was more prone to sheering out on the skin. The color wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably. Buxom Bold Bling (P, $12.00) is darker. Hourglass Exposure #3 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler. Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is brighter, warmer.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Whispering Ibis Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “rich iridescent fern-green with gold pearl.” It’s a soft, sage green with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had great pigmentation, but the texture was drier and powdery, which made it harder to apply with the same intensity as once you blended the color, it sheered out. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. L’Oreal Golden Emerald (P, $7.99) is more shimmery, darker. Milani Bella Emerald (18) (P, $4.49) is brighter, warmer.

The texture was drier, thinner, and more powdery compared to most of the shades I’ve tried from the range. It had decent color payoff, but it didn’t adhere well to the skin unless applied with fingertips (so you can really press it against the skin). It faded in less than six hours. bareMinerals Controversy (LE, ) is darker. Colour Pop Coconut (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter. Lancome My French #8 (LE, ) is darker. Sephora Collection Stormy Seas (113) (LE, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker. Ulta Teal (P, $10.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #18 (P, $32.00) is darker.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Trumpeter Koel Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dark lead-grey with lilac-blue iridescence.” It’s a muted, dark gray with a cool, bluish tint and a satin finish. It was powdery with a dusty texture that looked dry on the skin and was prone to sheering out. It had semi-opaque coverage as long as you patted it on and didn’t touch it. The color started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. Chanel Gris Exquis (LE, $29.50) is darker. Urban Decay Dagger (P, $18.00) is darker. Urban Decay Slanted (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer. Colour Pop Lovey Dovey (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Dios (LE, ) is lighter, more muted. Too Faced Chimney (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Chanel Fascination #3 (P, ) is darker. MAC Thunder and Rain #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker. Disney by Sephora Flotsam (LE, ) is darker. theBalm Matt McDonald (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Golden Rhea Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “iridescent pale gold.” It’s a muted, light-medium yellow gold with a frosted sheen. It had good color coverage with a soft, blendable consistency that was just slightly dusty. It lasted for almost eight hours. Chanel L’Intemporel de Chanel #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker, more muted. MAC Lithe (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer. Guerlain Petrouchka #2 (LE, ) is darker, warmer.

Tarina Tarantino Taurella (LE, ) is lighter. theBalm D1 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Chanel Pearl River #2 (LE, ) is lighter. Makeup Geek Rapunzel (P, $5.99) is less shimmery. Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova #1 (P, ) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to be a “lightweight” powder eyeshadow with “unprecedented adherence” that has “8-hour wear.” They’re available in individual compacts at $25 each, but the brand offers them in pan-only form (simple metal pan, same size as the compact version, just stripped of the plastic compact) for $19 through their website. Overall, the formula has a very soft texture that can get powdery or feel a little dry and dusty (depending on the finish/shade), so they are more prone to sheering out on bare skin. The wear is decent but rarely hits the eight-hour mark (without primer), though it isn’t significantly below the eight-hour wear time (six to seven hours), and it should wear longer over your favorite primer. They are blendable with semi-opaque to opaque color payoff.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Alabaster Starling Long-Lasting Eyeshadow
Rouge Bunny Rouge Alabaster Starling Long-Lasting Eyeshadow

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight” powder eyeshadow with “unprecedented adherence” that has “8-hour wear.” They’re available in individual compacts at $25 each, but the brand offers them in pan-only form (simple metal pan, same size as the compact version, just stripped of the plastic compact) for $19 through their website. Overall, the formula has a very soft texture that can get powdery or feel a little dry and dusty (depending on the finish/shade), so they are more prone to sheering out on bare skin. The wear is decent but rarely hits the eight-hour mark (without primer), though it isn’t significantly below the eight-hour wear time (six to seven hours), and it should wear longer over your favorite primer.

BUXOM Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette
BUXOM Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette

BUXOM Silk Sheets Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “chai luster.” It’s a light, neutrla-to-warm-toned beige with a frosted finish. It seems warm-toned in the pan, but it reads almost cool-toned against my warmer skin tone. It had good color payoff with a really soft, smooth texture that was incredibly easy to work with. The color lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky #2 (P, ) is more shimmery. Buxom Satin Seduction (P, $12.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE, ) is lighter. Colour Pop Acorn (LE, $5.00) is cooler. Lancome My French #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, brighter. Hourglass Exposure #1 (P, ) is warmer. Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma (P, $5.99) is warmer. MAC Satin Ochre (Left) (LE, ) is warmer. Cle de Peau Stardust #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. Chanel Poesie #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer. Chanel Poesie #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer. Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #1 (LE, ) is warmer. LORAC Vanilla (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. theBalm High Tide (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery.

BUXOM Bold Bling Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose gold.” It’s a coppery brown with warm, orange-brown undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich, opaque coverage with a really soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t powdery at all. The texture worked well on the skin with good adhesion and blendability, while it lasted for eight and a half hours before fading. Makeup Geek Grandstand (P, $9.99) is warmer. Make Up For Ever ME644 Iced Brown (P, $21.00) is darker. Kat Von D Nephilim (LE, ) is darker. MAC Retrospeck #2 (LE, $16.00) is darker. theBalm Manic Maribel (LE, $16.00) is warmer.

Colour Pop Snakebite (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Mink Magnet Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic bronze.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark taupe brown with warm undertones and a sparkly, frosted sheen. The texture was drier and a little crumbly, as the sparkles seemed to separate from the base color, so it didn’t adhere as smoothly to the skin. The color lasted for eight hours, but I had some minor fall out during wear. Burberry Pale Barley (102) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Force of Nature #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted. Too Faced Rum Raisin (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Makeup Geek Mesmerized (P, $9.99) is darker.

Cle de Peau Satin Moon #3 (P, ) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Haute Couture Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic java.” It’s a rich, dark bronze brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly with a soft texture that was hair on the powdery side, but it wasn’t noticeable on the lid. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading. Chanel Topkapi #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Inglot #409 (P, $6.00) is warmer. bareMinerals Embellish (LE, ) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Lust in LA (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter. Urban Decay Radar (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Brownluxe #4 (P, ) is less shimmery. Disney by Sephora Abu (LE, ) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust (LE, $30.00) is warmer. MAC Bao Bao’s Jewels #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery. Charlotte Tilbury Mona Lisa (P, $32.00) is warmer. Sephora + Pantone Universe Bracken (LE, ) is less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #6 (P, ) is lighter. Colour Pop Mooning (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer. Burberry Gold #1 (LE, ) is warmer. Make Up For Ever ME614 Graphite Brown (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Jetsetter Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte greige.” It’s a medium-dark, gray taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though the texture had a drier, thin feel that was powdery. Luckily, it seemed to adhere well to the skin and still work well, especially when it came to blending it out, but you’ll definitely want to tap off your brush prior to applying to the lid to avoid fall out during application (but there was none during wear). It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading. Guerlain Two VIP #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Smoked Cocoa #2 (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Brains & Brawn (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Deep Taupe (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. LORAC Stone (LE, ) is warmer. theBalm #25 (P, $6.50) is lighter. Make Up For Ever M106 Slate (P, $21.00) is darker. Urban Decay Password (P, $18.00) is warmer. bareMinerals Priceless (LE, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Designer or Die Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte beige.” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium gray-beige with a satin-matte finish. It was slightly powdery but remained very blendable and still adhered well to bare skin in practice. It had good color payoff and lasted for eight hours. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer. Urban Decay Frisk (P, $18.00) is warmer. Inglot #350 (P, $6.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is a new formula that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $13 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place. The eyeshadow formula is one that works better in action than swatched, as several of the mattes seemed on the thinner, more powdery side, but then they would blend exceptionally well while adhering to bare skin–and they wouldn’t fade any faster than the more shimmery eyeshadows. The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

BUXOM Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette

BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz. each or $40.00 for 6 x 0.05 oz.) is a new formula that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $13 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place.

The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

BUXOM Pre-nup Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering emerald.” It’s a softened, medium-dark emerald green with cool undertones and a frosted sheen.

NYX Seafoam Green (P, $4.50) is cooler. Make Up For Ever #52 (LE, $23.00) is warmer. Disney by Sephora Fins (LE, ) is less pigmented, warmer. Make Up For Ever ME304 Emerald (P, $21.00) is darker.

BUXOM Schmooze Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering turquoise.” It’s a brightened, slightly lighter-than-medium blue with a frosted sheen and almost “warm” undertones (but it is cool-toned). It had intense color payoff with a really soft, smooth texture that blended beautifully on the skin while wearing for eight and a half hours. Kat Von D Bukowski (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker.

Dior Rivage #3 (LE, ) is lighter, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Luxe Life Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “glimmering periwinkle.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark cornflower blue with cool, bluish-violet undertones and a faint lighter blue shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It had so-so pigmentation, which is likely due to the thinner, more powdery consistency. It looked better on the eye, as it was buildable, but it is a shade that needs extra help. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Hello Kitty Dear Daniel (LE, ) is lighter. Sugarpill Royal Sugar (P, $13.00) is darker, brighter. Sugarpill Velocity (P, $12.00) is darker, brighter.

On me, the color started to crease after eight and a half hours. Makeup Geek Enchanted (P, $6.99) is darker, warmer. Sleek MakeUP A Vow in Venice (LE, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker.
