ColourPop KaePop Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop KaePop Super Shock Shadow Set ($20.00 for 4 x 0.07 oz.) includes four full-sized cream eyeshadows. ColourPop split up the set again, so if you only like one or two shades, you can pick them up individually (there’s no price discount for buying all four, but it’ll come in a square, cardboard box when purchased as a set). The wear across all four shades was great–over ten hours strong–and I only had some application issues with Beverly, which was less pigmented and prone to becoming patchy if I wasn’t careful (it is easier to work with layered over one of the other shades as a result).

Sunset Blvd. is described as a “warm golden bronze.” It’s a medium, golden orange with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had nice pigmentation with a lightly emollient (slightly wet-to-the-touch) consistency that applied fairly well to bare skin. I noticed that it didn’t quite apply as smoothly with a brush as other ColourPop shades did (for true opacity, fingertips did work best, which is what the brand recommends, but I usually can use flat, synthetic brushes with the same results as well). It wore well for ten hours on me. LORAC Undiscovered (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Sateen (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Compass (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Rocket Girl (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Nuance #2 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse #2 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Viseart Orangerie (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Milani Bella Sand (02) (P, $4.49) is lighter (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Azalea (Left) (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Cle de Peau Satin Moon #1 (P, ) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Urban Decay Baked Cowboy (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wilshire is described as a “mid-tone warm peachy beige.” It’s a light-medium brown with warm, peachy-orange tones and a semi-matte finish. It had great color payoff with a really smooth, blendable texture that adhered well to bare skin and had no signs of fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Bobbi Brown Frappe (LE, $22.00) is more muted (95% similar). LORAC Terracotta (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Tawny (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Glasswing (P, ) is more muted (95% similar). NARS Madrague #2 (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Honey Butter (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia RTW (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora Hazelnut (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Downfall (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Cake & Biscuits (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Milani Bella Cappuccino (03) (P, $4.49) is more shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Saddle (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Milk (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Warm Mattes #7 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Mousse (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Marina (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Sherbert (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted (85% similar). LORAC Undeniable (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Frameworthy (LE, ) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Buxom Invite Only (P, $12.00) is cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Crenshaw is described as a “warm saddle brown.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, caramel undertones and a matte finish. It had great pigmentation that applied smoothly and evenly while still blending easily (and didn’t turn patchy!). The color didn’t fade or crease even after ten hours after wear. Inglot #357 (P, $6.00) is more muted (95% similar). Dior Atlantique #5 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Cookie (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Zoeva Substitute for Love (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Saddle (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M656 Chestnut (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced City Lights (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Uninterrupted (DC, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beverly is described as a “deepened blackberry.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish purple with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy, smooth consistency that was harder to blend out evenly, as it tended to look a little patchy (kind of like a dark lipgloss or overly emollient lipgloss can on the lips). It wore well, at least, and was still going strong after ten hours of wear. Makeup Geek Bitten (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Central Perk (LE, $5.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tarte Mod (P, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Seeker (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Thrilling Chase (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Viseart Warm Mattes #12 (P, ) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Bloodmilk (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Venetian Red (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Cherry Cola (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Colour Pop Get Out (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar).

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette (Zac Posen)

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Eye Z You Eyeshadow Palette ($43.50 for 0.19 oz.) is a pink and plum-hued palette with a subdued gray in the mix. There are six shades, and two appear to be totally new-to-me, while three are repromotes from past releases (two are from larger permanent palettes) and one is permanent as a single (Phloof!). It’s decent, and I was able to use all six shades on their own with some success, but some of the shades are drier to work with.

Also, apologies for the close-up photos of the eyeshadows individually: I completely screwed up and forgot to take close-up shots altogether, so I had to make-do with the further away photo of the palette (they were already used, so I couldn’t re-shoot!).

Cozy Grey is described as a “soft white pearl [with a Matte finish].” It’s a subdued, light-medium taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. (The official description didn’t make any sense to me.) It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was just a smidgen dusty but otherwise applied just fine. The color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Inglot #390 (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Inner Strength (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Black #1 (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Combust (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Night Crawler (LE, ) is darker (80% similar). MAC Camel Coat (P, $18.50) is darker, cooler (80% similar). MAC Brains & Brawn (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Performance Art is described as a “soft lilac with multi-pearl [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a medium, mauve with a sparkly, frosted sheen. The consistency was drier and looser to work with, which gave it less opaque coverage and made it prone to sheering out on the skin. There was some fall out during application and a few stray sparkles during wear. It wore for seven hours. Dior House of Pinks #4 (LE, ) is lighter, cooler, lower quality (90% similar). MAC Dress Me Up (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals Catch Me If (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Prickly Pear (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Dolomites (Left) (LE, $25.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Flannel (08) (P, $39.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Twilight (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC After Dusk (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Too Faced Winter Dream (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Natasha Denona Glaze (12M) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Tarte Make a Mauve (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse #2 (P, ) is darker (80% similar). Tarte Poker Face (LE, $14.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Palatable is described as a “deep frost-grey [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark gray with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was a little dusty but didn’t look dry on the skin. This shade wore for eight hours on me. Buxom Graphite Glam (LE, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Rich Thrills (LE, $16.50) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Pretty Vulgar Darkside (P, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Mindfiles (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals Abracadabra (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Lysithea (P, $29.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Les Annees Folles #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Plum Darling (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Dior Smoking Blue #4 (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). MAC Knight Divine (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). LORAC Gunmetal (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Phloof! is described as a “frosted off-white [with a Frost finish].” It’s a bright, light peachy-pink with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a firmer, smooth consistency that applied well and lasted for eight hours. Dior Dulcinee #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Creamy Bisque (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I526 Pearl Beige (P, $21.00) is more muted (95% similar). Maybelline Pure Nude (80) (LE, $6.99) is warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Les Tendres #1 (LE, ) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Sugar Rush (LE, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Smoked Cocoa #1 (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Apricot Blend #1 (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Nude (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Instaglam (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky #2 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Oh, Rocky! (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #1 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Stardust #1 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Diamond Pink (LE, $23.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Dior Fairy Golds #1 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

After Dusk is described as a “deep lilac [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft. This was the best shade in the palette. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Buzz (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Inglot #399 (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Posh (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Blossom (LE, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Harmonie du Soir #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). theBalm Just This Once Jamie (P, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Star Violet (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Lingering Dusk (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). City Color Ladylike (P, $6.99) is darker (85% similar).

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

Mauve Over is described as a “soft mid-tone mauve [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a muted, dark plum-purple with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had decent coverage, but it was drier and harder to blend out. This one also tended to fade soon after applying it to the lid (before I finished my makeup), so it lost a lot of the contrast it could have had when paired with the rest of the shades. After that initial fading, I don’t notice a real breakdown of the product until seven and a half hours. Dior Capital of Light #5 (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Rose Barbare #5 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 16 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Trusted Instinct #3 (LE, ) is warmer (85% similar).

MAC x Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo
MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a split-pan product with one shade being more of your traditional bronzer and the other being a pink-coral. Neither shade performed well, but the more blush-like shade had a really firm, hard press that required jabbing at the powder’s surface to get decent color out of it. This is at least the third time in recent memory that MAC has released a mid-tone brown/pink-coral blush duo, and I wonder why they haven’t been able to jump out of the box–it’s becoming like NARS Laguna/Orgasm over here.

Haute Contour (Bronzer) is a muted, medium brown with warm, orange-yellow tones and a satin finish. It was firmly packed in the pan, which made getting color out of it a little more challenging, and when I did, some of it came away in larger chunks–almost like sand. The consistency was fairly blendable on the skin, and the harder chunks dusted away (didn’t notice them applied). It lasted for seven hours before fading. MAC Sunny Side (LE, $33.00) is brighter (90% similar). bareMinerals The Skinny Dip (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Natural / Brunettes (03) (P, $53.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer (-, ) is darker (85% similar). bareMinerals The High Dive (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Haute Contour (Blush) is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a golden shimmer. You wouldn’t know what the color was by going off the swatch, but with enough jabbing and prodding of the powder, I was able to get enough powder to loosen to apply to cheeks to show it in a photo. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores, and the color itself lasted for six and a half hours before fading on me. NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (DC, $9.99) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Stereo Rose (LE, $33.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $30.00) is more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). NYX Menage a Trois (P, $15.00) is more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Becca Lychee/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades (all of the shades are also available individually in the permanent range). Two things worth noting: there are several repeats in this palette if you already own several of their past releases, and the amount of product in this is less than the last two volumes and $2 more. Oh, and there are, again, no matte shades. It’s such a shame that they’ve continued to repeat shades when they have 200+ shades in their range to choose from (see this sheet for repeats). If you haven’t picked up a lot of the brand’s palettes or singles previously, it IS a good palette overall — pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use.

ME230 Peacock Blue is a muted, medium-dark blue with “warmer” tones and a frosted sheen. It is still a cool-toned shade, of course! It had good pigmentation, but it was as opaque as my permanent version (or other variations I’ve come across in their palettes), unfortunately. The texture was a little firmer, though still dense and blendable, and ultimately, when applied, it builds up easily and within two layers so the lack of pigmentation wasn’t noticeable. It lasted for eight and a half hours. Too Faced Mint Chip (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Controversy (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Mystic Hour (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Stila Sapphire (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Backseat (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Les Aquas #3 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Coconut (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Pre-Packaged (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). theBalm Open to Offers Olwen (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sugarpill Magpie (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Friend Like Me (LE, ) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar).

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

S404 Straw Yellow is a slightly muted, light-medium yellow with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque, with a smooth, firm texture. It was blendable, but it took a little more pressure to really get it to diffuse and spread over the lid evenly. It is definitely one of the weaker shades in the brand’s range.

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a middling group of cooler silvers/grays–a smoky eye with a hint of blue–but disappoints across the board. If you tend to like your eyeshadows sheerer, it might still fill those requirements, but the lack of blendability in the darkest shade makes it a lot less foolproof to use, even accounting for preference towards sheerer coverage.

Starry Night #1 is a pale, bluish gray with cool undertones and a pearl shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage with a thin, dusty consistency that was prone to sheering out. This needs a good base to adhere to or else has a very sheer, faded appearance on the skin. It lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably. theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Oyster Mushroom (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Rondelle (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Lovely #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Eclectic #3 (LE, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D118 Platinum (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Parisian Sky #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Cheers (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I120 Snow Gray (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Dark Energy #2 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Just Breathe #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Starry Night #2 is a bright, silvery lilac with cool undertones and flecks of metallic silver and warmer lavender-pink sparkle and micro-glitter. The base is semi-sheer but has a heavy dosage of glitter, so it had more semi-opaque coverage overall. The texture was lightly creamy and almost wet-like to the touch. The glittery bits applied smoothly and evenly over the skin, and while not immune from fall out, it was only a minor amount after eight hours (pretty good for no adhesive base). Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Dream #2 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Sex & Disco (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #2 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse #3 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). MAC Electric Illumination (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Starry Night #3 is a muted, medium gray with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was a little thin but not too dusty or powdery. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. NARS Indes Galantes (Left) (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC A Waft of Grey #3 (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Smoky #3 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Tink (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Balance (Left) (P, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Chateau (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Thunder and Rain #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Trumpeter Koel (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Smoky Sequins #4 (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Dios (LE, ) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana #27 (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Hourglass Graphite #4 (P, ) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Starry Night #4 is a faded, dark navy blue with a pearly sheen. It had disappointing color payoff with a firmer consistency that made it harder to apply and blend out on the skin. The color lasted for six and a half hours before fading on me. MAC A Sprinkle of Blues #2 (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Minx (LE, $19.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Imaginary (P, $18.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Nautica (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Indigo Blend #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit
Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four warm-toned shades that range from pale, buttery gold to copper. Each shade is 0.26 oz. and can be removed from the palette, if desired, but they are currently only sold together (not sure if they will eventually be available as pans only). Presently, it is exclusive to Macy’s and the brand’s website. According to Anastasia, these are supposed to be “metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity” that can also be worn on the eyes. They are softer and silkier with a more finely-milled consistency compared to the Illuminators released a couple of months ago. These also have a finer shimmer and overall sheen that is less emphasizing of pores on the skin.

Sunburst is a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too powdery or too firm. It applied easily to the skin without emphasizing pores but giving a high shine finish. The color lasted for eight hours before fading on me. Anastasia Summer (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Now's the Time (LE, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Golden Bronze is a medium-dark, golden bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. This shade was intensely pigmented with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out nicely. It didn’t emphasize pores for me, but it had a very metallic sheen, so it is by no means a subtle highlighter! On me, this highlighting bronzer wore for eight hours. Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Milani Glowing (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Highlight #3 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition #20 (LE, ) is darker, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bubblyis a muted, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It was slightly drier with a looser consistency, though it still blended well and luckily, it didn’t look dry or powdery applied. Again, the finish was quite metallic but did not emphasize pores (almost that “so reflective it looks smooth” effect). It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Wet 'n' Wild Precious Petals (LE, $4.99) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Frosted (LE, $8.00) is darker (95% similar). Cover FX Moonlight (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dripping in Gold is a light-medium, yellow gold with strong, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had great color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency. The powder was easy to apply to the skin and diffuse along the edges. It didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture, though it is a very high-shine finish where a little goes a long way. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Estee Lauder Heat Wave (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). The Estee Edit 14K Glow (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).
