Dior Blazing Gold (886) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Blazing Gold (886) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.25 oz.) is one of two, limited edition holiday quints available this year. The formula looked like it might be comparable to my beloved Bonne Etoile, but alas, it was not so. I think it ended up being better than some of the recent Dior palettes, but it isn’t without its issues. It seemed like a wet/dry formula when I was trying it, but I couldn’t find anything on Dior’s site about wearing it damp/wet, so the ratings reflect dry application only.

Blazing Gold #1 is a vibrant, medium cranberry red with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a really smooth, dense consistency–almost like a cream. It lasted for eight hours before fading. Colour Pop Drift (LE, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC It's Not Easy Having a Good Time (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). MAC Cranberry (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Sonic (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D WTF (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Zoeva Warm Notes (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Crimson Tryst (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I824 Ocher Pink (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Treasure (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Gash (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #9 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Swoon (Better Together) (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #8 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tarte Hot MoMA (LE, ) is cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Seeker (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #2 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Ruddy (P, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blazing Gold #2 is a sparkling, light pastel pink with subtle, warm undertones. It had a dustier, drier texture that was prone to sheering out on the skin. It wore well for eight hours with light fall out. Sephora Ex-boyfriend (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Good Fortune (LE, $16.50) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Instaglam (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Flatline (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Enchanted Beauty (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar).

Urban Decay Looking Glass (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Harmonie du Soir #4 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blazing Gold #3 is a light-medium, golden peach with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It was semi-sheer with a thinner texture, which made it harder to get the sparkle to stay on the skin. I would only use this patted over other eyeshadows or with an adhesive base. It wore well for seven hours but had fall out. LORAC Cashmere (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Milani Bella Chiffon (28) (P, $4.49) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Nude Beam (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Minx (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Famous (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Best Makeup (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Fortune (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Too Faced Dearest (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova #1 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). MAC Night Thrill (LE, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Golden Rhea (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blazing Gold #4 is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm, brown undertones and a soft shimmer finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that applied evenly and smoothly. On me, the eyeshadow lasted for eight hours before fading. Anastasia Pose (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Fingerpaint Art (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Cle de Peau Stellar Gaze #4 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Amethyst (P, $19.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar).

Cle de Peau Cosmic Aura #3 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blazing Gold #5 is an intense, deep taupe with warm, brown undertones and a cooler, grayer overtone. It was nicely pigmented, and it had a very dense, cream-like texture (I would have swore it was like a gel eyeliner). The color wore well for eight hours, but it was a little harder to blend due to how dense/thick it was on the skin. NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #12 (LE, $25.00) is cooler (85% similar). Lancome Volcano (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more muted (80% similar). MAC Bossa Blue (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced La Petite Maison Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced La Petite Maison Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.47 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in mostly neutral shades, but there is a pop of lavender and purple. It’s exclusive to Ulta, and of course, limited edition. I think it’s one of the better offerings from Too Faced this year, but it’s not my favorite that they’ve done.

Let It Snow is described as a “matte white.” It’s a very light white with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that didn’t kick up too much excess. I was able to get seven hours of wear out of this one.

Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette ($45.00 for 0.87 oz.) includes two highlighters, a yellow correcting powder (which could be used as a highlighter, depending on your skin tone), two contour powders, and one blush. The quality is disappointing, depending on the shade, but the biggest downside is that it’s one-size-fits-all mentality. Obviously, this will flatter some and not work at all for others. I think the powders are a little on the chalky side, so I don’t know if they would work well on drier skin (I am normal right now, so I didn’t notice it overly much on my skin). The powders also seemed to have a little sweet smell, which was unusual.

Highlight (Tarteist) is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It is a very subtle highlighter that gets more noticeable as it is buffed and blended into the skin, but it is never emphasizing or even shimmery enough to rise to the level of a moderate highlighter. The texture was smooth and silky without being powdery. It lasted for seven hours on me, but as a heads up, it looks chalky on my skin tone (medium). Chanel Jardin de Camelias (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Golden Contouring Highlight (P, ) is brighter (95% similar). Hourglass Brilliant Strobe Light (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). YSL Lumiere Divine (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Paloma Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Lucid (P, ) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar).

Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Correct (Tarteist) is a pale, light-medium yellow with a matte finish. It is designed to correct, though I also think that yellow powders can be used as a “matte highlight” on yellower skin tones as well. The texture is quite powdery, and it was harder to blend out without losing all of the effect. It started to fade after seven hours on me. Dolce and Gabbana Eva (P, $51.00) is more muted (90% similar). LORAC Yellow Highlight (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Cream (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Illamasqua Cirrus (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Contour Soft (Tarteist) is a light-medium brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a firmer consistency, so it wasn’t as powdery to work with and blended better without sheering out, though it doesn’t build up intensity either. The color wore well for seven hours. MAC Taupe (LE, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). Zoeva Heavy Crown (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Talia (Contour) (P, ) is darker (90% similar).

Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Illamasqua Steal (P, ) is darker (80% similar). NARS Melina (Highlight) (P, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

Contour Deep (Tarteist) is a medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency. The color blended out fairly well and lasted for seven and a half hours. MAC Sepia (LE, $23.00) is darker, brighter, glossier (90% similar). LORAC Light Contour (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Medium (P, $44.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Contour (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Subconscious (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Accentuate (Tarteist) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable coverage with a lightly dusty texture. This faded really fast on me–six hours of wear–and I wasn’t expecting that at all. Stila Dusty Rose (LE, ) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Chanel Innocence (160) (P, $45.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Jardin de Chanel (LE, $55.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Overexposed (-, ) is lighter (95% similar).

LORAC Underrated (LE, ) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glow (Tarteist) is a light, ivory white with a pearly shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage with a firmer consistency in the pan, which made getting product on a brush more challenging–I would recommend a flatter, denser brush to achieve visible coverage. This shade wore well for seven hours on me. Givenchy Moonlight Saison (P, $52.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder (LE, $72.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Chanel Delice (78) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Warm Taupe is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It seems a little too warm to be a taupe to me, but I can see a hint of gray in it.

Cool Taupe is a medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation, as it was prone to sheering out and had a thinner texture that made it under-pigmented. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Chocolate is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a slightly firmer texture that seemed to make it harder to blend out, as it wanted to stay wherever it was initially applied. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Tarte Activist (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Dark Drive (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Rose is a light-medium pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff with a lightly dusty texture that blended well and didn’t lose too much of its opacity when applied and blended out. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Chanel Palpitation (104) (LE, $29.50) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Rose de Mai (P, $29.50)(90% similar).

Colour Pop Dreamboat (LE, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Deep Plum is a dark burgundy with warm undertones and fine multi-colored shimmer. The texture was quite powdery and dry, so the eyeshadow had a loose quality to it that made it look dry even applied to the skin. It showed signs of fading after seven hours.

Eggplant is a muted, deep purple with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was powdery and thin, which led to uneven coverage and difficult blending.

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Holiday 2015 Highliner Eyeliner Set (Update)

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Holiday 2015 Highliner Eyeliner Set
Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Holiday 2015 Highliner Eyeliner Set

UPDATE:  Marc Jacobs Beauty has fixed packaging issues that resulted in the eyeliner formula drying out.  I found the following posted as a “review” on the product listing for the Highliner Eyeliner Set. I also purchased another set after I noticed Sephora restocked, and I can personally confirm that the eyeliners are much improved!  They feel and apply consistently with the better Marc Jacobs Highliners I have used in the past, not dry at all.  All seven shades were creamy and glided-on without tugging. Here’s hoping the full-sized eyeliners make it back soon as well.  Of course, I would have preferred to have seen MJB make the same overture as Bite Beauty did earlier this year and resend the non-defective set to customers who purchased a defective set. The review below has NOT been updated to reflect the update at this time.

Hi Beauty Insiders,

Thank you for your review. The Sky-Liner Petite Highliner Gel Eye Crayon collection that is now available at Sephora is completely new and updated. Recently, Highliner experienced a temporary production issue with the cap—it wasn’t airtight, and was causing the formula to dry out. This issue is now fixed. Marc Jacobs Beauty pulled all Highliners from stores, reproduced them, tested them, and replaced them, including The Sky-Liner Set. We are so sorry if you have had a bad experience. We are confident that we have addressed the issue and we hope that you continue to love Highliner.

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Team

Marc Jacobs Holiday 2015 The Sky-Liner Highliner Gel Crayon Set ($48.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes seven, travel-sized eyeliners; two shades are limited edition and exclusive to the set, while five are from the permanent range. I don’t see it on Sephora currently, but it is still available through Marc Jacobs directly. I was really disappointed by the set, because every single eyeliner was dry as a bone when swatched to the point where just trying to swatch it resulted in all but one of the eyeliner’s tips breaking off. After the tip broke, the eyeliners were soft and creamy, which is why it’s so frustrating that the exterior coating to the pencil is so bad that it completely impedes the product’s performance. The one eyeliner that didn’t break still remains firmer and harder to use after three uses. This makes it harder to rate, because unless you break off the tip, they’re difficult and poor-performing, but since by the nature of just how firm they were, they inevitably broke (without me trying at all; in fact, I was trying NOT to!) and were much better. I’ve found that the full-sized, permanent formula has similar issues where some shades are creamy and easy-to-apply from the get-go and others are drier, firmer (and some have never gotten better for me). This inconsistency is the worst part about an otherwise impressive formula that wears nine to ten hours and comes in an assortment of more unique shades (some are more typical shades, of course). I didn’t have such significant texture issues with last year’s set. That being said, you will find the scores reflecting that these are not of the same quality as others I have tried (primarily in the overall quality and texture scores).

In the set, each pencil contains 0.37g/0.01 oz. while the full-sized eyeliners are 0.5g/0.01 oz. When I convert grams to ounces (using Google), 0.37g is really 0.0131 oz. and 0.5g is really 0.0176 oz. So this set contains 0.0917 oz. worth of eyeliner, or $130.26 worth of eyeliner. Or, if you’re not apt to finish products, for less than the cost of two shades, you get to try seven.

In the Buff is described as a “champagne shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, golden champagne with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one stroke, and it was fairly buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was firm initially, but after the tip broke off, it was creamier and easier to apply. It wore well for nine hours on me. Smashbox Bubbly (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Girl Talk (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Pearl (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Express-Oh! is described as a “espresso shimmer.” It’s a blackened brown with subtle, gold pearl and a more satin-like sheen overall. It had semi-opaque coverage but was very, very stiff to work with and tugged on the lash line. This was the only pencil that didn’t have the tip break on me just by swatching lightly on my arm, and after three uses, it still remains pretty firm to use. It wore for ten hours without fading or smudging. Marc Jacobs Beauty (Earth)quake (P, $25.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Rich Experience (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Crave (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Demolition (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Boys & Berry is described as a “boysenberry shimmer.” It’s a muted, dark plum purple with warm undertones and gold and eggplant-hued shimmer. It had so-so pigmentation in a single stroke, which was somewhat buildable but never opaque on the lash line. It had the same frustrating, firmer texture that snapped the tip off and revealed a creamier center. It lasted for ten hours. Urban Decay Rockstar (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Love Affair (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Strong Willed (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (95% similar).

(Stone)fox is described as a “metal gray.” It’s a dark, warm gray with silver sparkle and shimmer. The version in the set seemed to have more shimmer than the one I have in the full-size. The texture was firm until the tip broke off (just lightly swatching!! after the first broke, I was trying even harder not to break them, ha!), and the interior part of the portion was creamier but had some texture to it due to the amount of sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage that built up to opaque coverage after two to three layers. It lasted for nine hours with some shimmer fall out.
MAC Coin Operated (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Uzi (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Little Black Bow (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

MAC Counterfeit (P, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blacquer is described as a “black.” It’s a deep black with neutral undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was firm, and even after the tip snapped off, it wasn’t as creamy as the full-sized version I have (which is VERY creamy!). It lasted for ten hours, at least, but I wish the texture and color payoff were more comparable to the full-sized version. MAC Superfly (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Skully (P, $18.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar). Zoeva Black to Earth (P, $7.50) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Too Faced Perfect Black (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar).

(Wave)length is described as a “midnight blue.” It’s a medium-dark, navy blue with a pearly shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage in a single stroke, which was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation after two to three passes. The texture was firm until the tip broke off, and then the center was creamier and easier to use without tugging on the lash line. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. Stila Ultramarine (P, $22.00) is brighter (95% similar). Sephora Sailor Suit (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #3L (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Sudsy (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Buxom Pick Me Up (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar).

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

Ody(sea) is described as a “teal green.” It’s a bright, green-leaning teal with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage, and the texture was firm and comparable to the firmness I experienced with the full-sized version, though after the tip snapped off while swatching, it was very creamy but almost thick to the point where it layered on itself unevenly. It wore for ten hours on me. MAC New Marine (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Whirl(pool) (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar).

Tarte In Bloom Tartelette 2 Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte In Bloom Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte In Bloom Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte In Bloom Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.63 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows in a warmer, neutral-hued theme. I liked it overall, and I think if you normally use primer or have good luck with Tarte’s eyeshadow formula, you’ll likely enjoy the formula as well. I think it is, undoubtedly, dupable, and I think if they had opted for less warm-tones, it might have been more unique among the slew of neutral palettes previously released.

Charmer is a very light, neutral-to-warm-toned beige with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was a little dusty but blendable. The color started to fade noticeably after seven hours of wear. bareMinerals Chance (P, )(100% similar). Urban Decay Thirteen (P, $19.00)(100% similar).

Smokeshow is a deep, blackened brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, but it is buildable, so if you want the deeper color as seen in the pan, it is possible. The texture felt smooth in the pan, but it was on the thinner side and had a tendency to turn patchy on me if I wasn’t very careful about placement and tools. It lasted well for eight hours.

Smarty Pants is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly dusty and thin, so this shade was prone to sheering out when I was using it. It had good pigmentation if patted on, so it is going to be a shade better over a primer for sure. It lasted for seven hours. NARS Maya Bay (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar).

Activist is a muted, dark brown with subtle, cool red tones and a matte finish.

Sweetheart is a muted, medium peachy-orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was dustier and thinner, which resulted in semi-opaque coverage. It wasn’t very buildable, as it would sheer out when I tried to blend or manipulate the color on the skin. I was able to get six and a half hours of wear out of it.

Leader is a dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, and it was dry and thin, which just made it hard to use on the lid as it would apply unevenly and look even worse if blended (it is the type to stick and then not want to move from wherever it first stuck!). This one definitely needs primer underneath it, and I would highly recommend building it in layers or using it over a powder base (maybe Sweetheart or Smarty Pants). It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Viseart Petit Pro #3 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Violeta (LE, $12.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (95% similar).
