MAC Satin Ochre Eyeshadow Duo (Prabal Gurung)

MAC Satin Ochre Eyeshadow Duo ($40.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a mix of beige and coral. It’s part of the collaboration with Prabal Gurung, which will launch online on November 20th (in select stores on the 26th). One shade was really nice to work with, while the other needed improvement. At this price point, both shades should hit it out of the park. I also wish these were the equivalent of two full-sized eyeshadows.

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette ($54.00 for 0.73 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, lip gloss, eyeliner, and mascara. Five eyeshadows are 0.04 oz., and then one is a larger-sized eyeshadow at 0.07 oz. The gloss is full-sized, while the eyeliner is 0.03 oz. (compared to 0.04 oz. for full-sized). The mascara is travel-sized (which may make replacement difficult–UD has a travel-sized Supercurl, though I’m not sure it will fit). In order to accommodate for the depth of the gloss, the palette is quite thick, and overall, I wish it was lighter-weight. I also would have rather Urban Decay had included a double ended brush or two, rather than the gloss, because I think having brushes inside the palette protects them particularly well, whereas many of us have lip colors stashed in our makeup bags. The quality is good for the most part with the highlighter eyeshadow being quite powdery. I do think the color combination runs rather dark and feel like more contrasting shades would have provided for a more versatile palette.

MAC Cinder Eyeshadow Duo (Prabal Gurung)

MAC Cinder Eyeshadow Duo ($40.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a smoky duo with one more frosted, taupe shade and a more satiny, charcoal gray. The quality is decent but not excellent, and at this increased price point, they really ought to be top notch. The packaging is hefty and substantial, and you can certainly feel as if your money is going towards it.

Burberry Gold No. 25 Complete Eye Palette

Burberry Gold No. 25 Complete Eye Palette ($60.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes a dark brown, khaki gold, antique gold, and pewter beige. After a season of many disappointments, it is always refreshing to discover something as well-done as this palette. The quality is consistently high across all four eyeshadows: richly pigmented, soft and silky textures, and long-wear. I’m digging Burberry’s take on gold, as there is no true, yellow gold here, only variations on the theme, which is nice while still being more traditional yet not the same ol’, same ol’. It is a warmer-toned set of shades, all are shimmery, and more dupable, so it may not work for everyone. If you tend to like your warm, shimmery shades with a gold twist, you may fall in love. I personally hope they’ll consider adding it to their core range down the line. These were just the type of eyeshadows that felt like they applied and blended themselves–no fuss at all.

MAC Terre Eyeshadow Duo

MAC Terre Eyeshadow Duo ($40.00 for 0.06 oz.) consists of a beige and brown, both with warmer undertones. They work well together, and both shades had good color payoff, soft textures, and wore for eight and a half hours before fading. I really liked the duo from a quality standpoint, and the packaging is very similar to the bronzer/blush–metal compact that feels substantial in the hand. I was disappointed to see that the compact contains a mere 0.06 oz. total, when a full-sized MAC eyeshadow is 0.05 oz. It’s a nice duo (though dupable for sure), but I wish it had at least the equivalent of two full-sized eyeshadows in it (the pans don’t seem that small!).

Guerlain Cygne Blanc (11) Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow Duo

Guerlain Cygne Blanc (11) Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.14 oz.) includes a light warm pink paired with a warm, metallic white. Neither shade was great; they weren’t total misses, but they should be more pigmented and smoother in consistency. They apply and look better on the lid in practice than merely swatched, which is always nice, but they’re still a little disappointing.
