Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Eye Color Quad

Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a set of four neutral-hued shades where three have a matte finish and one is a shimmer. The mattes were better-performing than the shimmer, which is usually not the case, and they were easy to work with as they were smooth and silky, which made blending effortless. The wear was good at seven and a half to eight hours across all four shades. I felt like the shimmery shade ran drier and sheerer, and at this price point, that can be a deal-breaker.

Cocoa Mirage #1 is a light, yellowed beige with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but the texture veered on the powdery side for me, even though it certainly had that silky feel to it as well. It wore well for seven and a half hours before it faded. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Social Butterfly #1 (P)(100% similar). Buxom Mix & Mingle (P, $12.00) is darker (100% similar). Hourglass Monochrome #1 (P) is lighter (95% similar).

Cocoa Mirage #2 is a muted, medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency had a really silky, finely-milled feel to it that made it seem like velvet on the skin, and it blended out easily without losing its pigmentation. On me, the color wore well without fading for eight hours. NARS Maya Bay (LE, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Downfall (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Cocoa Mirage #3 is a medium-dark, coppery-brown with warm, red undertones and fine gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dry consistency. It could have applied better, as it tended to sheer out on the skin. The color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Surratt Beauty Cuivre (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar).

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

Cocoa Mirage #4 is a dark, chocoalte brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The texture is soft, silky, smooth, and very blendable. It’s nicely balanced such that it isn’t powdery but not firm either, which makes it very easy to apply. On me, it wore for eight hours before fading slightly.

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo
Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo ($80.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a limited edition duo of highlighters (I got confirmation yesterday). You can still pre-order from Saks or place a back-order at Nordstrom. If you liked formulas like MAC In Extra Dimension Skinfiishes, Estee Lauder Gelee, or NARS Dual Intensity, you’ll like this one. It has that same baked-gel-powder type of powder. I think this could have been an excellent permanent addition to the Tom Ford range, so I hope the brand will reconsider making this permanent (and also coming out with a few more combinations!). The texture of both shades was incredibly soft, smooth, and finely-milled, while the product provides a noticeable sheen that stops just before it emphasizes the skni’s natural texture.

Moodlight (Daylight) is a soft, pale gold with a luminous sheen. It semi-opaque color coverage that was easily blended out for sheerer coverage or built-up for a more distinct sheen. If you use it wet, you can get a really metallic finish out of it, as well (though note, the brand doesn’t mention damp usage). It wore well for eight and a half hours before I noticed fading. The Estee Edit Snowlit (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Starlight (P, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Starlight (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NYX Ritualistic (P, $9.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $41.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Rosy Glow (Left) (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Albatross (P, $29.00) is cooler (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Double-Gleam (P, $30.00) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Light Cocoa (P) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 02 (P, $62.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Camelia de Plumes (LE, $76.00) is cooler, more shimmery (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moodlight (Candlelight) is a softened, medium rose gold with a metallic sheen. On my skin tone, it leans browner and warmer, but in the pan, it seems a little rosier, so those with pink undertones may find it pulls less brown on them as a result. It was richly pigmented with a very soft, silky consistency that was a tiny bit powdery in the pan, but it didn’t look dry applied to the skin. The finish on this was significantly stronger with respect to sheen compared to the top shade. It didn’t emphasize pores when I applied it, even heavily, though I don’t consider my pores to be huge (personally, someone may disagree with me) so if emphasis of pores is a major concern, you may want to use a more feathery brush (I used a light-to-moderately dense brush) or apply more sheerly. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on before fading. Anastasia Riviera (P, $28.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Rose Gold (LE, $46.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Modern Mercury (LE, $65.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Glow (LE, $46.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Cover FX Sunlight (P, $38.00) is warmer (90% similar). Edward Bess Bellissima (P, $45.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked Flushed Highlighter (P) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Indiscretion (P, $44.00) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). Laura Geller Ballerina (P, $24.00) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). Laura Mercier Spellbound (LE, $44.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (85% similar).

Dior Eclectic (866) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, smoky set of shades ranging from a pinky-beige to deep purple. I loved the color combination put together here, as using the blackened green made for an interesting time, but the quality just isn’t there. I wish the eyeshadows were softer and less dry, even if they were sheerer, but the thinner, dusty texture made for a lot of extra work to really blend and diffuse the eyeshadows on the lid.

Eclectic #1 a medium-dark eggplant purple with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There’s a dusting of fine shimmer on it, but it’s really hard to see applied. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a really dusty consistency that made for tougher application and blending. It wore for seven and a half hours before fading. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 16 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Delectable (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 (LE) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #6 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Mulled Wine (LE) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #2 (P) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE) is warmer, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #2 is a sofot, light pinky-beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thin, dusty texture but applied well, even though it only lasted for seven hours on me. MAC Pretty (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Call Me Bubbles (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Moz (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Exuberante #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Smitten (P) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Cop-a-Feel (DC, $5.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Sensation (102) (LE, $29.50) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Vanilla Kiss (LE, $23.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Lucius (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Nubile (DC, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky #1 (P) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #3 is a brightened, light silver with a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that didn’t get powdery or too dense to work with. There is an overspray, so it appears more metallic in the pan or if swatched without removing the overspray (I always take a brush to the surface and get rid of any oversprays first before swatching). It stayed on well for seven and a half hours. Make Up For Ever ME202 Iceberg Blue (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Holy Bible (DC) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Sterling (P) is brighter (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Oyster Mushroom (LE) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Inglot #447 (P, $6.00) is brighter (90% similar). NARS Flowers 3 #1 (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Crazy Paris #3 (LE) is more muted (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Pretty in Paris (LE, $9.99) is darker (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #1 (P) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Les Aquas #4 (P) is cooler, darker (90% similar). MAC Guise (LE, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Virgin Silver (LE) is darker (85% similar). NARS Silver Factory (LE, $24.00) is darker, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #4 is a deepened–but muted–green with fine green shimmer over a mostly matte finish. Applied, it looks mostly matte as the shimmer doesn’t seem to bind with the base product. It had good pigmentation and blended out fairly well while lasting for eight hours. LORAC Forest (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm #3 (P, $6.50) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Black Ivy (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Punk (P, $16.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Chanel L'Intemporel de Chanel #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar).

Giorgio Armani Emeraude (04) (P, $39.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #11 (P) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #5 is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a dry, dusty consistency that made blending more difficult as the color would look patchy and uneven. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #3 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Meow! (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Center Stage (P) is cooler (95% similar).

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five eyeshadows ranging from pale peach to shimmery, navy blue. It’s not the worst palette I’ve come across from Dior, but it had that signature miss–rich blue eyeshadow–that really brought down the palette as a whole, though the other four shades were okay but nothing impressive.

Exuberante #1 is a soft, medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had so-so color payoff with a lightly powdery texture that didn’t adhere as well to the skin without a base. The color blended out well, and it lasted for seven and a half hours for me. Chanel Signe Particulier #2 (LE) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Black #6 (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Power Player (LE) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Chino (LE, $22.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Eyeshadow #2 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #2 is a soft, light pink-peach with a fine gold pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that ran a little dusty. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte What a Wonderful Pearl (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Blush Stilettos (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Cambon #2 (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Smitten (P) is darker (95% similar). Dior Eclectic #2 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #2 (P) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Strange (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sensibility (LE, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Dope (LE, $19.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #3 is a light-medium gold with subtler, warm undertones and a lightly frosted finish. In the pan, it looks metallic, but it is primarily an overspray and the underlying color is a lot less shimmery. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that made it harder to achieve true-to-pan color on the lid without it sheering out. It wore for seven and a half hours before I noticed fading. YSL Rosy Glow #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Golden Glow #2 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Guerlain Calligraphy #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Filigree (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Entrelacs #1 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Telepathy (P) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Snow (LE, $19.00) is brighter, darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Beigely (LE, $12.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Photosphere (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Natasha Denona Cream (21S) (P, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #4 is a deepened navy blue with subtle, satiny shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery and dry, so it sheered out a lot and was difficult to layer. It could have blended more easily, though a lot of the color seemed to disperse in the air if you made sweeping motions. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Royally Blue (LE, $22.00) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Viseart Sapphire (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Estrella (LE) is brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Metamorphose (44) #4 (LE) is cooler, brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #3 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Arcturus (P, $29.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Navy #6 (LE, $19.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Etiquette (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $39.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #5 is a muted, dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen paired with very, very fine shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that made blending more challenging–it tended to stick where it went initially and was less easily diffused as a result. The color lasted for seven and a half hours. Too Faced Yule Log (LE, $16.00) is warmer, more shimmery (95% similar). YSL Saharienne #3 (P) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Toasted Espresso (LE, $14.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Warm (Winter 2016) Eyeshadow #4 (LE) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Black #5 (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Cocktail Black (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Lancome Audacious (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Constructivist (DC, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Dior Parisian Sky #5 (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Smut (P, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is darker (90% similar).

Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette
Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette ($68.00 for 0.72 oz.) is a smokier set of shades that mixes cool and warm undertones to create a gradient of color ranging from light gold to smoky purple to matte black. I think the color combination is more unusual but still familiar. The textures were very, very similar to Urban Decay Naked Smoky to me (all owned by the same parent) — the mattes had a thinner, slightly dusty, “noisy” texture; there’s a distinct sound that I can hear when my brush passes across the surface of them that I don’t notice with a lot of other eyeshadows. It applied better than it swatched, and the product seems more buildable than anything else. I felt like my eyelids look a little drier with this formula on. The palette is best paired with your go-to primer, as it will help you get truer-to-pan color and greater intensity, though the wear with most shades was near to the eight-hour mark without a primer. I have a few of these shades as singles from several years ago (so I don’t know if they have reformulated at some point in the last four or five years), but the versions in the palette are less dense and drier to me. The palette itself is large and feels a little bulky, but it contains a lot so I think it is travel-friendly if you don’t midn the weight or are going for a longer trip; and I consistently had a little struggle getting it open (just doesn’t seem to have a good groove to open for my finger/hand size, I guess!).

As a heads up, Filigree, Exhibition, Zip Me Up, Volcano, IT List, Kitten Heel, and Clock Strikes 12 are all shades that show up as shades in the individual, permanent Color Design eyeshadow range.

Filigree is described as a “light gold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, buttery yellow gold with a frosted finish. It had fairly opaque coverage with a soft, blendable texture that was just a smidgen dry. It wore well for eight hours on me. Laura Mercier Dust (LE, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Chouquette is described as a “peach matte.” It’s a light, warm-toned beige with very subtle shimmer, but it’s not totally matte. Applied, it looks more matte than anything else. The texture has a thinner, dusty kind of texture, so it is more prone to sheering out when blended or kicking up excess in the pan so use a gentler touch when grabbing this shade. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Kat Von D Laetus (P) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Sand Out from the Crowd (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Parfait is described as a “light pink matte.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned pink with a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a powdery consistency, so it blended well but could exacerbate dryness on the lids without a primer underneath. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte Charitable (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover #1 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Aaah (LE) is lighter (90% similar).

Joie is described as a “golden-bronze shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, godlen pewter with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was smooth but a little dry, while the color payoff was mostly opaque and the eyeshadow was still easy to use and applied well. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Indulge (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Cle de Peau Pewter Veil #3 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Verve (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Voyage is described as a “muted purple matte.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a noticeably powdery texture. It was better built-up in thinner layers, and of course, primer would make it sing. It was very blendable without sheering out too much, despite its powderiness. It wore well for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Bake Sale (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Rebel (P) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Sepia (LE, $19.00) is better quality, more pigmented, lighter (95% similar).

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

Sante is described as a “brown matte.” It’s a soft, medium brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The powder had a thin, dusty texture with semi-sheer coverage. It was harder to build this shade up for me in practice, though I was almost able to get medium coverage (no primer, of course). While it seems dusty, it does blend well on the skin. It lasted for seven hours. Urban Decay Downfall (LE, $19.00) is better quality, warmer (95% similar). NARS Maya Bay (LE, $25.00) is cooler (95% similar). Chanel Entrelacs #2 (LE) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). Tarte Tan-gled Up in You (LE) is better quality, warmer, more pigmented (95% similar). Too Faced Fifi (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Exhibition is described as a “orchid shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium rosy mauve with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage that couldn’t be built up on its own, as it had a tendency to sheer out if more product was added. The dusty texture made it difficult to get it to stick evenly to bare skin. It seemed faded and “worn” after six and a half hours of wear. NARS Kari (P, $29.00) is lighter (95% similar). Becca Ombre Rouge #2 (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Dress Me Up (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Winter Dream (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

MAC After Dusk (P, $16.00) is warmer, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zip Me Up is described as a “deep purple shimmer.” It’s a dark, smoky purple with cooler undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic sheen with a little sparkle. The sparkle doesn’t stick well to the underlying eyeshadow, so there was some fall out during application. It had a denser texture compared to the majority of the palette, but I wouldn’t actually describe it as a dense texture. It had good pigmentation, and it applied fairly well to the lid but did sheer out a bit. It wore for eight hours on me. MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Volcano is described as a “silvery gray shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle warm undertones and a cooler, distinctively gray overtone. It had a soft, frosted shimmer to it that gave it a more pearly finish. It had good color payoff, while the texture shared that dustiness that most of the shades have had in this palette. This shade seemed lighter than the single version I have. It lasted for eight hours. Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Bossa Blue (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Antique (LE, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Exec (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Audacious is described as a “smokey brown shimmer.” It’s a dark brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

Couture is described as a “dark brown matte.” It’s a dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage and had a firm consistency that made it hard to apply and blend out. It looked as patchy applied to the lid as it did in the swatch. It wore for near to eight hours, but it just didn’t look very good. I feel like this is one of the shades that would be reached for often, so it is a disappointment that it is hard to work with. Viseart Cool Matte #5 (P) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Dark Brown (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Buxom Big Spender (P, $12.00) is better quality, more pigmented (95% similar). Kat Von D Sytry (P) is warmer, darker (95% similar).

IT List is described as a “black matte.” It’s a medium-dark black with a satin finish. It had great pigmentation with a fairly blendable texture, though there was very slight dustiness.

Kitten Heel is described as a “gold copper shimmer.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with warm undertones and warm, golden frost. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that applied decently to the skin, but it didn’t seem like it binded together as well as it could so it actually applies best with fingertips, sponge-tipped applicator, flat synthetic brush, and then patted and packed on rather than swept on (or else it sheers out considerably!). It lasted for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Scene (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay X (P, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Tenacity is described as a “purple metallic.” It’s a brightened, medium taupe brown with warmer undertones and a cooler, gray metallic sheen. It had good color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that seemed to have larger chunks of sparkle in it, which didn’t combine with the powder well so they tended to dust away. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Viseart Velvet (P) is darker (90% similar). Buxom Sequin Sparkle (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Clock Strikes 12 is described as a “gray metallic.” It’s a smoky, dark taupe brown with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a thin texture that tended to go on unevenly. I highly recommend using a very feathery brush and wear a base shade or primer underneath to make blending more manageable. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Chanel Entrelacs #4 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Undercover (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #4 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Posh Pedigree Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Posh Pedigree Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a set of smoky neutrals that leans neutrla-to-warm but not strongly warm-toned. All four shades have some shimmer to them with three of the four being rather frosted, so for those who prefer less shimmery brow bone highlights or a more matte crease shade, this palette may require additions to work. The texture of most of the shades was quite soft and smooth–less dry than your typical Mineralize Eyeshadow–and pigmentation was true-to-form with sheerer coverage when applied dry, richer coverage when applied with a damp brush. The two darker shades were a little dusty/dry, though, so I didn’t find this as good as Pure Bred. The wear was eight hours across the board before I noticed any signs of fading.

Posh Pedigree #1 is described as a “white lemon.” It’s a muted white gold with subtle, warm gold shimmer that gives it a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation applied dry with opaque coverage when applied damp. It had a very smooth, silky consistency and blended out beautifully. Sephora Clash (LE) is lighter (95% similar).
