Natasha Denona True Gold, Antique Olive, Smoky Quartz, Umber Eyeshadows

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.08 oz.) comes in 66 shades with four distinct finishes (Matte, Duo-Chrome, Metallic, and Sparkling). According to the brand, the eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “full, rich and intense color that won’t fade out, be “long-lasting,” and smooth. The majority of the shimmery shades were very pigmented with a soft consistency that was something just right and other times a little prone to crumbling/loosening in the pan, while the mattes were smooth but quite powdery, which resulted it color that didn’t adhere to bare skin as readily. The texture of most shades is soft, blendable, and most of the shimmery shades I’ve tested applied well to bare skin. The wear was fairly consistent, but there was some variance from shade to shade (which didn’t seem related to finish). The wear has ranged from five to eight hours, depending on the shade. Primer helps with longevity, adding two to three hours to the shade’s no-primer wear time, but they seem like shorter-wearing eyeshadows compared to most powder formulas I’ve tried.

Anastasia Icy, Mermaid, Midnight, Rosette Eyeshadows

Anastasia Icy Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is an icy, bluish silver with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage with a really dense consistency–it felt a little cream-like, but it was firm enough that getting pigmentation out of it was harder. The color was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. NYX Tin (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Moonshine (LE) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #6 (P) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Smoky #1 (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Just Breathe #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME202 Iceberg Blue (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Vivacious Maguari (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Static Age (P, $21.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Shellshock (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Dark Energy #2 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). Sephora Iridescent Shell (110) (LE, $13.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

Anastasia Teal Shimmer, Dragonfly, Fresh Green, Opaline, Blue Star Eyeshadows

Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dry consistency that was a little loose in the pan and hard to apply to the skin. I had trouble blending it out and keeping it even, as it had a tendency to stick more to certain places. It lasted for six hours on me. Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Sugarpill Holy Ghost (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar).
