Make Up For Ever Iridescent Artist Shadows (Part 1)

Make Up For Ever I112 Chrome Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, bluish gray with cool undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had rich color payoff with a creamy, moderately dense texture that was smooth and blendable on the skin, while the color adhered well to bare lids. On me, this shade wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing. Too Faced Blueberry Swirl (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Sephora Colorful Eyeshadows (Spring 2016) Part 1

Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be “highly pigmented, long-lasting” powder eyeshadow with 10-hour wear and “an ultrasmooth, blendable texture.” For the most part, I find the range to have good color payoff, blendability, and wear, though they do not typically last as long as 10 hours (more like eight).

MAC Runway Worthy Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Runway Worthy Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) consists of nine eyeshadows, most in a pink/plum theme. There are some misses in the palette, while the rest are decent to good but nothing spectacular, so the whole palette ends up being rather ho-hum without any strong shades in it.

Becca Champagne Collection Eyeshadow Palette

Becca Champagne Collection Eye Colour Palette ($40.00 for 0.30 oz.) includes five neutral eyeshadows with two shimmery shades and three matte shades. All five were fairly blendable, pigmented, and easy enough to apply; this palette will be best for someone who likes warmer neutrals with semi-opaque, buildable coverage. It’s decent but not particularly impressive overall.
