NARS NARSissist Day & Night Series Eyeshadow Palette

NARS NARSissist Day & Night Series Palette
NARS NARSissist Day & Night Series Palette

NARS NARSissist Day & Night Series Palette ($65.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a medium-sized (but thicker) palette that houses eight eyeshadows and a travel-sized eyeliner. The first row of eyeshadows are matte, while the second row of eyeshadows are shimmery. Long-time readers will know that I find NARS eyeshadows to be extremely hit or miss with more misses than hits, and I’m not a big fan of this palette either. The formula is described as “highly pigmented, long-wearing, crease-resistant” and that they “blend effortlessly.” They are generally semi-sheer to semi-opaque and run either a little powdery or stiff enough that they’re uneven and harder to blend. The darker mattes tend to look patchy applied, no matter what tool I use to blend.

Nassau is described as a “creamy French vanilla.” It’s a light-medium beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly powdery consistency that lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. As you might expect, it’s a basic shade, which makes some sense to include in the palette (though it will never suit all skin tones), there are a lot of dupes for it as well. NARS Biarritz (P, $24.00) is darker. NARS Madrague #1 (P, $24.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Bleach (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Laura Mercier Vanilla Nuts (P, $23.00) is less shimmery. theBalm #24 (P, $6.50) is lighter. Laura Mercier Buttercream (P, $23.00) is lighter. LORAC Buff (P, ) is warmer. Dior Sundeck #1 (LE, ) is lighter. Tarte Just Malt Away (LE, ) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer. Tarte Just Malt Away (LE, ) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer.

Kat Von D Damned (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #4 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maya Bay is described as a “rosy clay.” It’s a muted, medium brown with a mostly matte finish. You can see tiny flecks of shimmer in the pan, but almost none of it shows up even in a swatch, let alone on the eye. It had decent color coverage with a soft but not too firm texture, so it wasn’t too difficult to use. It lasted for seven hours. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is darker. LORAC Taupe (P, ) is darker. MAC Rose Cloud (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Chanel Charming #2 (LE, ) is warmer. Laura Mercier Café au Lait (P, $23.00) is darker. Kat Von D Glasswing (P, ) is warmer. Kat Von D Glasswing (P, ) is warmer. LORAC Lt. Brown (P, ) is darker. Urban Decay Tyranny (LE, $18.00) is darker, warmer. Make Up For Ever M646 Latte (P, $21.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Downfall (LE, $18.00) is lighter, warmer. Tarte Tan-gled Up in You (LE, ) is lighter. Tarte Tan-gled Up in You (LE, ) is lighter. Gucci Beauty Tuscan Storm #3 (P, ) is darker. Tarte Hazelnut Bon Bons (LE, ) is warmer. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ithaca is described as a “warm nougat.” It’s a softened, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish that has a smidgen of white sparkle sprinkled in it. The sparkle doesn’t really bind with the powder, so most of it is lost either as fall out or gets trapped in the brush. It lasted for seven hours on me and was slightly patchy when blended. MAC Ground Brown (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. NARS Galapagos (P, $24.00) is warmer. NARS Flowers 3 #4 (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery. Anastasia Chocolate (P, $12.00) is less shimmery. Hourglass Obscura #4 (P, ) is darker, cooler. Kat Von D Solas (P, ) is lighter. Urban Decay Whiskey (P, $18.00) is more muted. Tarte Powerful (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker, cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #4 (P, ) is less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #4 (P, ) is less shimmery. Colour Pop Bravery (LE, $5.00) is lighter. LORAC Chocolate (P, ) is darker, more muted, cooler. Sephora Collection #tbt (P, $13.00) is darker. Urban Decay Vengeance (LE, $18.00) is lighter, more muted. Dior Sundeck #5 (LE, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dogon #2 is described as a “charcoal black.” It’s a deepened, medium-dark black with subtle navy-ish shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It was semi-sheer and powdery, which made it difficult to blend on the lid as it looked uneven and patchy. It lasted for seven hours on me. When swatched, it looks quite similar (and ultimately has the same effect in a look) as Heraklion, so I have no idea why they included both. (This is part of the permanent duo, Dogon.) Make Up For Ever D104 Black Diamond (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. MAC Dark Soul (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Black Star (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. LORAC Indigo (LE, ) is more shimmery. Colour Pop Friskie (P, $5.00) is more shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #2 (P, ) is darker. Colour Pop Shameless (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, cooler. Colour Pop Shameless (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, cooler. Colour Pop Raven (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery. LORAC Onyx (LE, ) is more shimmery. Viseart Charbon (P, ) is more shimmery. NARS Heraklion (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Tornay (P, ) is darker. bareMinerals Black Leather (LE, $14.00) is darker. Anna Sui Diamond Blue (LE, ) is lighter. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Mandchourie #1 is described as a “golden-infused denim.” It’s a medium-dark, bluish-gray with lighter gold shimmer. The base color was semi-sheer, while the shimmer blended off of the base color so it ended up looking rather matte. You would need a tacky, white base to make this work decently. It faded quickly and had noticeably faded by the fifth hour, and I had a gaping hole in my look after eight hours. This is part of the permanent Manchourie duo, and the one I had when I reviewed the duo (years ago) performed better. Too Faced Chimney (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Hello Kitty 1974 (LE, ) is less shimmery. Hello Kitty 1974 (LE, ) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Dios (LE, ) is brighter. Colour Pop Tink (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. Rouge Bunny Rouge Trumpeter Koel (P, $19.00) is brighter, cooler. Viseart Cool Matte #8 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. Colour Pop Lovey Dovey (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Bonifacio is described as a “pink sand with shimmer.” It’s a soft, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had decent to good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture and was one of the better performing shades in the palette. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Dior Night Golds #5 (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. Giorgio Armani #10 #2 (P, ) is lighter. Too Faced New Romantic (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. Stila Kitten (P, ) is lighter. MAC Sweet Sovereign (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Too Faced Nutmeg (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Colour Pop Truth (P, $5.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #10 (P, $32.00) is lighter. MAC Natural Vigor #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Tarte Go for the Gold (LE, ) is darker, more muted. Cle de Peau Satin Moon #1 (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Zagreb is described as a “chocolate-infused with raspberry shimmer.” It’s a dark, chocolate brown with warm, yellow undertones and gold and red sparkle. It had good pigmentation with a soft, finely-milled texture, but it was still a little challenging to blend out as it tended to turn patchy. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Well Put Together (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, less pigmented, lower quality. Too Faced Yule Log (LE, $16.00) is warmer. NARS Baalbek (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker. Make Up For Ever S622 Black Brown (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Charlotte Tilbury Mona Lisa (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Obsessed (P, ) is more shimmery, warmer. NARS Mekong (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Heraklion is described as a “starry night.” It’s a faded, matte black with silver sparkle over a matte base. The eyeshadow is powdery, uneven, and patchy applied to the skin, and it primarily looks like a matte black applied as the sparkles do not bind with the powder itself. It lasted for seven hours before fading. Sugarpill Stella (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker. Ulta Night Sky (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker. Make Up For Ever D104 Black Diamond (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Mod #2 (P, ) is more shimmery. Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk #5 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. MAC Dark Soul (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. LORAC Indigo (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Rouge Bunny Rouge Volcano Fairy Wren (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter. Colour Pop Raven (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery. Colour Pop Friskie (P, $5.00) is more shimmery.

Viseart Charbon (P, ) is more shimmery. LORAC Onyx (LE, ) is more shimmery. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Night Clubbing is described as a “black with gold pearl.” It’s a medium-dark black with gold sparkle. It had so-so pigmentation in a single stroke that was buildable to opaque color in two to three layers. It lasted for eight hours before migrating on me. Kat Von D Black Metal Love (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, cooler. MAC Blitz & Glitz (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. Stila Stargazer (P, $20.00) is less shimmery. bareMinerals Absolute Black (P, ) is warmer. Sephora Collection Clubbing Stilettos (P, $9.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Zero (P, $19.00) is .

MAC Claretluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio

MAC Claretluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio
MAC Claretluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio

MAC Claretluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Trio ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bold combination (which I love seeing!), and I think the colors work really well together. This formula is supposed to have “sheer coverage with a soft finish” when applied dry and “super saturation of colour with metallic brilliance” when applied wet. My experience with this formula is that sometimes it can be really nice, other times it is a total miss. I think they are most practical used damp or over a slightly tacky base if you want to use them dry. They’re actually longer-wearing than you might think, given how they feel and swatch, but I usually get seven to eight hours of crease-free wear. With Claretluxe, I think it is most viable damp or if used dry, over a slightly tacky or white-hued base. The wear was good, and for the most part, the shades were true to description: sheer when used dry, richer when used damp.

Claretluxe #1 is described as a “light pearly pink.” It’s a light, pinky-peach with warm, gold sparkle with a highly reflective finish. Applied dry, it was sheer and prone to having a lot of fall out during application, while applying it damp yielded better coverage (about semi-sheer) that was buildable to opaque coverage (two to three layers really patted and packed on). The sparkles adhere better to the base powder when you use a damp brush–I used MAC’s 242 dampened with water for best results. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before creasing. MAC Pastelluxe #2 (P, ) is warmer. MAC Pastelluxe #2 (P, ) is warmer. MAC Invincible Light (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Good Fortune (LE, $16.50) is less shimmery. MAC Invincible Light (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. Too Faced Coquet (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Instaglam (LE, ) is less shimmery. MAC A Party of Pastels #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler. Dior Trafalgar #1 (P, ) is less shimmery. Charlotte Tilbury The Uptown Girl #3 (P, ) is cooler. MAC Whisper Pink (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. Tarte Champagne Bubble Bath (LE, ) is less shimmery. Guerlain Les Precieux #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery. Too Faced Pink Sugar (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Bouffant (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Claretluxe #2 is described as a “clean burgundy pink-red.” It’s a brightened, reddish copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer with a drier consistency that applied more unevenly to the skin and was harder to blend out. Using a dampened brush, the color was intensely pigmented and very smooth while becoming blendable. It wore for eight and a half hours before fading on me. MAC Spicy Smoke (LE, $32.50) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Cranberry (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Quartz Fusion (LE, $21.00) is darker.

Sleek MakeUP Sunset #8 (P, $9.99) is darker, warmer. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #3 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. NARS Cambodia (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Urban Decay Sonic (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. MAC It’s Not Easy Having a Good Time (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. Zoeva Warm Notes (P, ) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Innocence (DC, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Sugarpill Asylum (P, $13.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Claretluxe #3 is described as a “purple.” It’s a slightly muted, dark purple with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It was semi-sheer applied dry, but it blended well, so it was usable dry, though you’ll definitely want to use a damp brush to achieve opaque coverage if that is more your style. It remained blendable for the most part even when used damp. The color lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Disney by Sephora Sea Witch (LE, ) is lighter, cooler. Cle de Peau Cosmic Aura #1 (P, ) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #1 (P, ) is lighter. Ulta Purple (P, $10.00) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Romance in Rome (LE, $9.99) is lighter.

Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette

Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette
Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette

Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette ($40.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a set of five, warm-toned neutral eyeshadows with matte and satin finishes. It’s a nice palette overall, and it’s not quite as dupable as your typical neutral palette, but there are a fair amount of dupes for each shade. All five shades coordinate well with each other, and I liked that the finishes ranged from matte to satin, so you could get a little more depth out of the combination while also having an easier time blending out the shades.

Omber Rouge #1 is a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too powdery or too firm. It wore for eight hours before fading on me. This could be a highlighter on medium to dark skin tones or more of a transition shade on fairer skin tones. Viseart Beige (P, ) is darker, warmer. Guerlain Hey Nude (04) (P, $34.00) is darker. Tarte Barefoot in the Grass (LE, ) is lighter. Becca Ombre Nudes #1 (P, ) is lighter. Kat Von D Vespertine (P, ) is lighter, warmer. Anastasia Cream (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer. Sephora + Pantone Universe Macaroon (LE, ) is warmer. bareMinerals Velvet Nude (LE, $14.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Omber Rouge #2 is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had nice color coverage that was mostly opaque, while the powder’s consistency was blendable with just a smidgen of powderiness in the pan. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Le Metier de Beaute Smoky Quartz (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Tarte Pinky Promise (LE, ) is darker, warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Smoky Quartz (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Lingering Dusk (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Urban Decay Buzz (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter. Aveda Bare Bellis (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Omber Rouge #3 is a muted, medium brown with a hint of rosy-beige tones to it and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage that blended easily on the skin without sheering out. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. Make Up For Ever S610 Almond (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker. Cle de Peau Baby Universe #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. Viseart Chantille (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Dior Ambre Nuit #5 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Viseart Saint-Honore (P, ) is darker, warmer. LORAC Dusty Rose (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter. Dior Golden Shock #2 (LE, ) is darker. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #3 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Makeup Geek Barcelona Beach (P, $5.99) is warmer. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Omber Rouge #4 is a softened, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff that applied easily to the skin and blended out without issue. The texture was a little firmer compared to the other shades, but it wasn’t difficult to work with in practice. It wore for eight hours before it started to fade. Anastasia Caramel (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Too Faced Mousse (P, $16.00) is lighter. Too Faced Chocolate Cookie (P, $16.00) is darker. Colour Pop Cornelious (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Zoeva Substitute for Love (P, ) is brighter, warmer. Buxom Filthy Rich (P, $12.00) is darker. LORAC Unspoken (P, ) is darker. Stila Individual (P, ) is lighter. Anastasia Bengal (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter. Make Up For Ever M650 Cookie (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is lighter. Makeup Geek Latte (P, $5.99) is more muted. Too Faced Chocolate Milk (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Saddle (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented, warmer. Urban Decay Beware (P, $18.00) is darker. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Omber Rouge #5 is a lightly brightened, dark brown with warm, orange-red undertones and a satin finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it was the least pigmented of the five shades, and it also had a drier, firmer texture that didn’t feel as finely-milled. This shade could have been easier to work with on the lid, as it took a little extra patience to blend it out. It wore for seven and a half hours on me before fading. Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear (P, $5.99) is lighter. MAC Amorous Alloy (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Brown Script (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Exposed (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Guerlain Les Fauves #2 (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. Colour Pop Hot Tamale (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery. Sephora + Pantone Universe Hot Chocolate (LE, ) is lighter. Laura Mercier Cocoa (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted, cooler. Colour Pop Mittens (P, $5.00) is cooler. Colour Pop Bandit (P, $5.00) is lighter. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #4 (P, ) is less shimmery. NARS Dolomites (Right) (LE, $24.00) is darker. MAC Apricot Blend #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. LORAC Untamed (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Divergent Burnt Mahogany (LE, ) is more muted, cooler. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Love Palette

Too Faced Love Palette
Too Faced Love Palette

Too Faced Love Palette ($49.00 for 0.50 oz.) contains fifteen eyeshadows split into three combinations. It utilizes a new formula with “slurry powder technology,” which ultimately gives them a slightly drier, dustier consistency that is harder to apply on bare skin. The formula is one that definitely needs to be used damp (and I think most shades could probably be used with a damp brush with no ill effect, but I haven’t tried it with all of the shades) or with an eyeshadow primer, preferably one with a little tack or thickness to it. The more sparkly shades create a lot of sparkle fall out while applying as well as during wear, as the sparkle tended to separate from the base color. The eyeshadows lasted for seven to eight hours on average with semi-opaque color payoff. I think a brown eyeliner might have been a better fit with these, as they run more faded/softer applied, and the black can be harsh–it’s certainly a dramatic choice.

Cherish is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a soft, fairly smooth texture that blended and adhered well to the skin. It lasted for eight hours. MAC Hey (P, $16.00) is lighter. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is cooler. Disney by Sephora Splendid (LE, ) is lighter.

Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dearest is a light-medium gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. You could feel the sparkle pull away from the base color, so it had a more crumbly consistency and tended to have fall out during application (as I blended) as well as when worn (all over the under eye). It lasted for seven hours before fading. Milani Drenched in Gold (P, $6.99) is darker. Gucci Beauty Antique Gold (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, better quality. Sleek MakeUP Meet in Madrid (LE, $9.99) is darker. theBalm #41 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Divergent Golden Honesty (LE, ) is less shimmery. Ardency Inn Sunday (P, $21.00) is less shimmery.

Adore is a soft, medium-dark copper with warm, orange-brown undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that was a little dusty and tended to look sheerer on the lid as a lot of the color blends away. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. bareMinerals Imagine (P, ) is darker. MAC Magnetic Attraction (LE, $21.00) is darker, cooler. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #11 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter. Divergent Peaceful Shimmer (LE, ) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Trick (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter. Maybelline Caramel Cool (100) (LE, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter.

Desire is a medium-dark, golden brown with warm, caramel undertones. It had nice color coverage that went on very smoothly and evenly, and this shade wasn’t too dusty to work with, so it applied well. The color wore for eight hours before fading.

Passion is a muted, medium-dark purple mauve with lighter gold sparkle and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a dusty consistency that sheers out easily.

Romance is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a satin-matte finish. It was very pigmented but powdery, though it didn’t sheer out much when applied, so it ended up being one of the better shades in the palette. It wore well for eight hours before fading.

Everlasting is a blackened green that leans browner with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had decent pigmentation but was dusty and prone to sheering out, so it always looked softer and more faded than it did in the pan. I had some trouble blending it out as well. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. theBalm Lead Zeppelin (P, $16.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani Copper Wood (LE, ) is darker.

Perfect Black is an intense black with a satin finish. It was richly pigmented and very, very creamy, so I had no problems applying it and never felt it tugging at the lash line. It is, however, so creamy that wear is an issue as it migrated to the corners of the eyes noticeably after seven hours of wear. Urban Decay Perversion (LE, $19.00) is less glossy.

NYX Highlight & Contour Palette

NYX Highlight & Contour Palette
NYX Highlight & Contour Palette

NYX Highlight & Contour Palette ($25.00 for 0.72 oz.) is a set of four highlight powders and four contour powders. All of the shades included in the palette can be purchased individually, and the palette is refillable, so shades can be removed or rearranged. The only downside is that they don’t sell the palette empty, and there are two additional highlight powder shades (Bone, Soft Peach) and two additional contour powder shades (Sienna, Saddle) available as singles (each single is $5.00). I liked that two of the four highlighters had some shimmer to them, so for those who like a little sheen to their highlight, you’ll have those options, and you can always tamp down the satiny sheen by dusting one of the more matte highlight powders on top to stretch out the others if you like less shimmer. The contours all had a semi-matte to satin finish, so none were totally matte, and they looked natural on the skin without looking too shimmery or too flat. I had some trouble blending out the contour shades at times, and I had the best luck by applying with a more feathery brush to lay down the general outline of the contour, and then going back to darken as needed. The highlight shades are soft and smooth but powdery.

Highlight Powders

Ice Queen is described as a “pearly pale white.” It’s a very light, cool-toned white with a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to fully opaque color if desired, though it’s likely a shade worn more diffused for most, so luckily, it blends out quite easily. It just slightly emphasizes pores if I’m not careful or don’t buff it out enough. It lasted for eight hours on me. Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery, darker. L’Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is cooler. LORAC Shimmer Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Soft Light is described as a “matte nude.” It’s a very light, white-beige that is fairly neutral in undertone paired with a matte finish. The texture was soft and smooth but noticeably powdery. This looked chalky against my medium skin tone, so it is probably better mixed with one of the contours or for fairer skin tones than mine. The coverage was semi-opaque and slightly buildable, but with how powdery it was, it tended to sheer out if you blended out the edges at all. It started to fade after seven hours. NARS Highlight (P, ) is warmer. Kat Von D Lucid (P, ) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Cream is described as a “matte soft yellow.” It’s a soft, buttery yellow with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a really soft, smooth consistency that was easy to blend and apply to the skin, though it was powdery in the pan. On me, it started to fade after seven and a half hours. Dolce and Gabbana Eva (P, $51.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Lyric (P, ) is lighter, cooler. LORAC Yellow Highlight (P, ) is lighter, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Nectar is described as a “pearly soft peach.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer. It was less frosted compared to Ice Queen. The texture was soft, blendable, and slightly powdery/dry but didn’t appear dry on the skin. The shimmer didn’t emphasize the skin’s natural texture or pores. It wore well for seven and a half hours before turning a little patchy/faded. IT Cosmetics Hello Light (P, $24.00) is more shimmery. MAC Star! (LE, ) is more shimmery. Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment (Original) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Contour Powders

Tan is described as a “matte soft brown with slight red undertones.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a smoother texture that was slightly firmer to the touch, and it could have been a little more blendable on the skin. I started noticing fading after eight hours of wear. NYX Sculpt (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. Urban Decay Toasted (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Contour (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (P, ) is lighter, warmer. MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is lighter. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is lighter. Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Smashbox Bronze (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Toffee is described as a “matte neutral brown.” It’s a muted, medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. This was one of the more shimmery contour shades (it’s not matte at all!). The color payoff was fully opaque, while the texture was smooth without being powdery. It lasted for eight hours on me. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Contour (P, ) is less shimmery. Too Faced Dark Cocoa (P, ) is lighter. Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sculpt is described as a “matte taupe.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray overtones but the stronger, more orange undertones made it look warmer and browner. It had a very slight satin sheen, but it was the more matte of the four contour shades in the palette. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was a smidgen powdery. This shade blended fairly well on the skin, and it wore for eight hours. NARS Paloma Contour (P, ) is lighter, warmer. MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is warmer. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is lighter, warmer. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Shadowplay (P, ) is lighter, warmer. NYX Tan (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Hollow is described as a “matte deep brown.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a slightly firmer consistency, which made blending more challenging than desired. Once on, it stayed put for eight hours. Kat Von D Subconscious (P, ) is less shimmery. LORAC Deep Contour (P, ) is cooler, better quality. Marc Jacobs Beauty Contour (P, ) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

LORAC PRO Matte Eyeshadow Palette

LORAC PRO Matte Eyeshadow Palette
LORAC PRO Matte Eyeshadow Palette

LORAC PRO Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($28.00 for 0.144 oz.) contains eight matte eyeshadows in neutral shades ranging from white to brown to black. I think if you have all of the PRO palettes released, you probably have neutrals close enough to these. It’s a good palette, and it applied fairly well over bare skin, which isn’t always the case for LORAC’s eyeshadows, but it is very dupable. I would have liked to see one or two more mid-tone shades, as the overall look of the palette is quite dark and smoky.

Bare is a light beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture is very smooth and silky, though it kicked up excess product in the pan. It had good pigmentation and lasted for eight hours on me. Laura Mercier Vanilla Nuts (P, $23.00) is darker. theBalm #24 (P, $6.50) is warmer. LORAC Nude #1 (LE, ) is lighter. Make Up For Ever M500 Ivory (P, $21.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever M532 Sugar Coated Candy (P, $21.00) is cooler. Anastasia Vanilla (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #4 (P, ) is lighter. Hourglass Graphite #1 (P, ) is cooler. Too Faced Coconut Crème (P, $16.00) is lighter. Too Faced Coconut Crème (P, $16.00) is lighter.

Makeup Geek Baby Face (P, $5.99) is cooler. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Latte is a light-medium brown with a hint of gray and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan. Applied, it lasted for eight hours before fading. NARS Yamal (LE, $24.00) is darker. Kat Von D Vanish (P, ) is darker, warmer. Make Up For Ever M536 Milk Tea (P, $21.00) is warmer. theBalm Score (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lower quality. Too Faced Fawned of You (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Hello Kitty Hot Cocoa (LE, ) is cooler.

Buxom Gimme Gorgeous (P, $12.00) is less pigmented. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Corduroy is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, but it was one of those shades that seems really pigmented but seems to fade almost immediately upon hitting the eye–it appears softer applied than in the pan. The texture was very, very finely-milled but powdery (perhaps why it is prone to fading/sheering out). It wore for almost eight hours before fading. Inglot #342 (P, $6.00) is lighter. MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $16.00) is darker. Urban Decay Faint (P, $18.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever M630 Sweet Chestnut (P, $21.00) is lighter. Chanel Charming #4 (LE, ) is darker.

LORAC Chocolate (P, ) is more muted, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chocolate is a muted, dark brown with subtle, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had decent to good color payoff that was buildable on the skin, but like Corduroy, it had a tendency to sheer down and look a bit faded applied. On me, it started to show signs of wear after eight hours. Inglot #363 (P, $6.00) is darker. MAC Cross-Cultural (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. NARS Coconut Grove (P, $24.00) is darker.

Anastasia Chocolate (P, $12.00) is warmer. Too Faced Chocolate Cake (LE, $16.00) is brighter. Tarte Multi-Tasker (LE, ) is darker. MAC Choco Cake (LE, $16.00) is lighter. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Linen is a bright white with a matte finish. It had a very smooth consistency, but it was a little powdery to work with and turns chalky on my skin tone, so it will be more appropriate for fairer skin tones or layered over a good base for darker skin tones, I think. It had semi-sheer color payoff and lasted fors even and a half hours on me. Bobbi Brown White (LE, $22.00) is brighter. NYX Milk (P, $4.50) is brighter. Inglot #318 (P, $6.00) is brighter. LORAC White (P, ) is cooler. Make Up For Ever M126 Chalk (P, $21.00) is cooler. Too Faced Coconut Cream (LE, $16.00) is warmer, better quality. Viseart Cool Matte #1 (P, ) is warmer. Kat Von D Banshee (LE, ) is cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Mauve is a dusty, muted, medium mauve with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too powdery. The color stayed on well for eight hours before starting to fade. Bobbi Brown Dusty Lilac (LE, $22.00) is darker. MAC Quarry (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Quarry (P, $16.00) is darker. Inglot #344 (P, $6.00) is darker. MAC Haux (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Haux (P, $16.00) is darker. Urban Decay Laced (P, $18.00) is lighter, cooler. Urban Decay Nooner (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler.

First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Burgundy is a muted, dark burgundy with warm, red-brown undertones and a matte finish. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that kept most of its color when applied, but it could have been easier to blend. On me, it started to fade after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Cherry Cordial (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer. NARS New York (P, $24.00) is lighter. MAC Deep Damson (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter, cooler. theBalm #13 (P, $6.50) is lighter. LORAC Dusty Plum (LE, ) is lighter, cooler.
