Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette
Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.96 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows in an assortment of rainbow hues, plus seven more neutral-hued shades. We’re still early in the holiday season, but I liked this one, and many shades worked surprisingly well over bare skin without losing vibrancy. There are a few shades that are misses and could use improvement and others that need a primer underneath to fix some minor imperfections. I wish the neutrals had been in more of a gradient order with less emphasis on light and lighter, as there could have been more transition shades for light-medium and darker skin tones (I ended up mixing the shades together to get something that wasn’t so stark on my skin tone). This palette is a good value with plenty of product; the Shade + Light Eye palette has 0.60 oz. of product for $46.00 or $76.67/oz., and with this larger palette, you’re paying $61.46/oz.

Swoon is a bright, fuchsia-pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a lightly powdery texture, but it was really blendable and didn’t lose coverage when applied to the lid. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Pomegranate (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Ruddy (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Bird's Eye View (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Destroyer is a medium, orange-toned red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a blendable texture that ran a little powdery but was easy enough to use. This one should do well over a primer, I think, but if you want to wear it over bare skin, pat it on with a flatter brush. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Harpsichord is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had excellent color payoff with a really smooth, buttery texture that was blendable and applied beautifully to bare skin. The color started to fade after eight and a half hours of wear.

Analogue is a bright, tangerine orange with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a matte finish.

Fran is a sunshine yellow with warm undertones and barely-there satin shimmer over a matte finish. The texture was lightly powdery, and this shade was prone to sheering out a bit when applied to bare skin, so I would recommend using a primer to keep this true-to-pan in color. It wore well for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Calavera (LE, $19.00)(95% similar). Anastasia Phresh (LE, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Legend is a slightly muted, light-medium yellow gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dry texture that seemed to keep it from binding as well, so it didn’t go on as smoothly or as intensely as many gold eyeshadows do. This shade wore for eight hours. Smashbox Goldenrod (LE) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Rising Star (LE) is darker (95% similar). MAC Heaven Loves You (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Standing O (P) is cooler, more muted, darker (95% similar). Hello Kitty Mimmy (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Vinyl is a light-medium, chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and subtle gold shimmer (but it is mostly matte in practice). The pigmentation is better than it looks, but the texture is really thin and dusty, so the color sheers out a lot on bare skin. It really needs a primer or colored base to pop. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear. Makeup Geek Fuji (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Lime (P, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar).

Misfit is a medium, grassy green with warm, yellow undertones and faint green micro-shimmer. It had great color payoff with a soft, silky consistency that ran a smidgen powdery but blends out nicely with minimal fall out during application (none during wear). This shade lasted for eight hours on me. Inglot #384 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Fledgling (P) is cooler, brighter, lighter (90% similar).

Hyperballad is a medium-dark, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. This was another shade that had a very soft texture that ran powdery, which meant that it didn’t apply well over bare skin. With some coaxing, it can be packed on and intensified by layering on bare skin, but it is one that would be better over a primer for sure. It lasted for eight hours. Inglot #338 (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Shark Bait (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Illamasqua Burst (P) is brighter (90% similar).

Synth is a bright, cyan-like blue with very faint silver micro-shimmer over a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that applied fairly well to bare skin. I was able to retain most of the vibrancy without primer, but to maximize your oomph, I would still recommend a primer. It showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Blindsided (LE, $19.00) is more muted, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Wet 'n' Wild A Regular at the Factory #2 (LE, $2.29) is warmer (90% similar).

Dark Wave is a muted, medium-dark navy blue with a mostly matte finish. It had so-so pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that was a little thin but remained blendable on the skin. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Inglot #336 (P, $6.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Stormer (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). theBalm Matt Horowitz (LE, $16.00) is more muted, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Inglot #332 (P, $6.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Echo is a medium-dark, violet purple with cool, blue undertones and silver sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle gets lost, as it doesn’t bind with the underlying powder. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, slightly buildable, color payoff, but this was definitely a shade that needed something to adhere to (like a primer or base product). I tried to pack it on and only blend minimally, but it still sheered out a lot. It faded within seven hours of wear. Sephora Night Owl (93) (P, $10.00) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Fascination Street (LE) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). Maybelline Painted Purple (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (85% similar).

Anthem is a plummy purple with warm undertones and a satin micro-shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a silky feel that ran dusty, so it didn’t perform well on bare skin as it had a tendency to sheer out. It can be built-up to about 80% coverage at most (without a primer). This eyeshadow lasted for seven and a half hours for me. Make Up For Ever I-90 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Fashion Rebel #2 (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill 2AM (P, $12.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Vibrant Grape (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Vox is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish.

Noble is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a soft, powdery texture that made it harder to get true-to-pan color as it would sheer out on bare skin. The color lasted for seven hours on me. Make Up For Ever M536 Milk Tea (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Love Hue (LE) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Cookie Swap (LE) is darker (90% similar).

Black Metal is a deep, dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a silky, smooth, and blendable consistency, so it should be an excellent way to darken any shade in the palette as it mixes with the other shades well. The color wore for eight and a half hours on me. MAC Nehru (Guo Pei) (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Corrupt (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar).

MAC x Guo Pei Morning Light Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Morning Light Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Morning Light Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Morning Light Eyeshadow Quad ($70.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a warm-toned set of hues with three being more golden and the last being a deep brown. For someone who likes their golds and yellows, this might make for an easy go-to. The quality is there, which is a good thing since the packaging of the products drives the price up from the more typical $40 to $44 for a quad to whopping $70. The MAC x Guo Pei collaboration launches online on September 24th at maccosmetics.com, and it will only be available at MAC 5th Avenue in NYC and MAC at South Coast Plaza (in southern California) for U.S. locations.

Earth Scent is described as a “blackened brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented, and it had the same dense, cream-like texture of Nehru from the other quad in the collection. The eyeshadow is very smooth and blendable on the lid, and it wore well for nine hours.
Stila Chocolate (LE, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Activist (P) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Dark Drive (LE) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Espresso (P, $19.00) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). NARS Give In Take VI (LE, $29.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Becca Ombre Nudes #5 (P) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Amber Lights is described as a “peachy brown with shimmer [with a Frost finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark golden copper with a frosted, metallic finish. The color payoff was fully opaque, while the texture was soft, buttery, and dense, which made it adhere well to the lid for eight and a half hours on me. This shade is part of the permanent range. Milani Bella Copper (23) (P, $4.49) is lighter, less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Glamorous (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

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

Waking Dawn is described as a “light medium gold [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a bright, sunshine yellow with a frosted sheen and slight orange-y undertones. It had great pigmentation with a smooth, dense consistency that blended out easily without losing its intensity. On me, it started to fade after eight and a half hours of wear. City Color Pharaoh (P, $6.99) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Yellow Brick Road (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #403 (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar).

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

Sweet Vapours is described as a “soft beige with a pink duochrome [with a Pearl Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium, pinky-beige with a cooler pink iridescent sheen paired with gold sparkle. The texture was drier and tended to apply unevenly over the skin, so this one would need a base or primer of some sort to give it a smoother appearance on the skin. It wore well for eight hours. Sephora + Pantone Universe Pale Mauve (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Cygne Blanc #1 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC x Guo Pei Night Sky Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Night Sky Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Night Sky Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Night Sky Eyeshadow Quad ($70.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes three cooler-toned shades paired with a warm white. It is a good set of shades overall, though you may find the black and white shades within your stash as they are more basic shades. This is a limited edition piece in the MAC x Guo Pei collaboration, which has limited edition packaging (and pricing!) to match. The exterior of the lid is covered in a printed fabric, which may this less durable/travel-friendly (not sure about cleaning it/whether it’ll catch and fray over time). The MAC x Guo Pei collaboration launches online on September 24th at maccosmetics.com, and it will only be available at MAC 5th Avenue in NYC and MAC at South Coast Plaza (in southern California) for U.S. locations.

Nehru (Guo Pei) is described as a “black grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep black with cooler undertones and a matte finish. This isn’t like the Nehru I know from the permanent range, which translates as gray, and it might have something to do with the texture of this being incredibly dense, smooth, and almost cream-like. This was very, very pigmented and just an intense shade to work with, but it was still blendable — it’s just not really like the permanent version, so I have distinguished it as the Guo Pei version. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. Giorgio Armani #1 Fall Collection 2012 #4 (LE)(100% similar). Kat Von D Black Metal (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Anastasia Noir (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). Estee Lauder Black Chrome #1 (LE, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Scandal Eyes (Cream) (P) is glossier (95% similar). Too Faced Panther (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Cinderblack (LE, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). Tarte Fashionista (LE) is more muted (95% similar). Smashbox Ebony (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Silhouette (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M100 Black (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). L'Oreal Noir C'est Noir (P, $5.99) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Killing Moon (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Carbon (P, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Blackjack (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm Righteous (LE, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Fin (LE, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Chroma #3 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #1 (P) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Corrupt (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Celestial Peak is described as a “dark frosted blue [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a muted, dark navy blue with a soft, frosted sheen. It’s a “warmer” navy blue, but it isn’t truly warm-toned. The texture was soft with a slight dustiness but was fairly easy to work with, though it sheers out a bit when applied to the skin so two layers may be necessary to achieve true-to-pan color. It wore well for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Rhinestone (LE, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). Sephora Stormy Seas (113) (LE, $13.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Ocean Breeze (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #12 (LE) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Lunar (P, $20.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #8 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Time (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Nightfall (LE) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Navy #6 (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Moonshadow (P, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Heavy, Black and Pendulous (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Occupy (LE, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Natasha Denona Metallic Steel Blue (11M) (P, $29.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blue Horizon is described as a “mid-tone frosted blue [with a Frost finish].” It’s a medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was a smidgen powdery so it is best patted on with minimal blending/sweeping motions to main its intensity. It lasted for eight hours before fading. Sephora Rio (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S214 Ultramarine Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar). Sugarpill Afterparty (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Blue Calm (DC, $16.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Gonzo (P) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Shiseido Esmaralda (BL 620) (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Blue Candy (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Blue Lagoon (LE) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Peace (P, $19.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #6 (P, $9.99) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Beehive Blue (LE, $16.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Bukowski (LE) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Kat Von D Paranoid (P, $21.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Natasha Denona Petroleum Blue (92M) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). CoverGirl Sapphire Flare (315) (LE, $4.99) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bright Moon is described as a “warm white [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a creamy white with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, buttery texture that was easy to use and apply. I felt like it turned almost silvery when combined with the cooler blue tones from the other shades, but it may appear truer in undertone on someone with naturally cool undertones. This shade wore for eight hours before fading. Tarte Pearl (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Girly (P, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Andromeda (P, $29.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Flagstone (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Vanilla (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of shades to give you a classic, gray smoky eye. It’s by no means particularly unique, but if you tend to go for a softer, smoky eye in shades of gray, you may appreciate having them altogether. I prefer using this one damp, even though Chanel doesn’t seem to call out this formula as a wet/dry one (but it has that baked-like texture that lends itself well to the dual application), but that being said, this one isn’t “pigment-rich” for most shades when used dry.

Tisse Smoky #1 is a medium, silvery gray with a frosted finish and neutral-to-cool undertones. The texture was soft, silky, and very smooth to work with, though it seemed a little prone to sheering out on the lid. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading.

MAC MACnificent Me Eyeshadow Palette

MAC MACnificent Me Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a warmer-toned, neutral palette with a mix of frosts and mattes. The amount of product contained in this palette is similar to that of their eyeshadow quads, though each shade is similar to the size of a dime. The palette itself is the same size as the quad palette, so they store/stack well together. The shades worked well together, and overall, it’s a nice palette with only a few shades that could have performed better (and only one real miss). This palette is part of the MACnificent collection, which will be available at counters and in-stores on October 1st.

MACnificent Me is described as a “pinky white frost.” It’s a light-medium, pink-peach with a frosted finish.

Dance in the Dark is described as a “deep cool brown.” It’s a blackened brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. It is actually one of the better versions I’ve tried of this shade (MAC likes to use this one in their limited edition palettes), as it had semi-opaque coverage and a more blendable texture, though it was still tricky to use.

Viseart Cool Matte (04) Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Cool Matte (07) Eyeshadow Palette
Viseart Cool Matte (07) Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Cool Matte (07) Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) includes twelve shades of (mostly) cooler-toned, matte eyeshadows. I thought that Viseart would be the hero of cool-toned palettes, but this palette was a miss. There are too many shades that are under-pigmented and have a powdery or dusty texture, which just made it a harder-to-use palette overall. Of course, it had to be the cool-toned palette that had the most misses. For someone who often uses primer and expects to pair this with other products, it might still work, but the higher price point coupled with so-so performance (especially compared to other Viseart palettes) makes this a disappointing palette.

Cool Matte #1 is a cool-toned, medium white with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a soft, lightly dusty consistency. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Cool Matte #2 is a medium-dark, pinky mauve with neutral undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a silky, smooth, and blendable texture that lasted for eight hours before fading.

Cool Matte #3 is a light-medium, peachy-pink with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had so-so color coverage, and the texture was firmer in the pan (one of my least favorite eyeshadows by texture in all Viseart palettes I’ve tried!). It lasted for eight hours once applied.

Cool Matte #4 is a medium-dark taupe brown with warm, yellow undertones and a gray overtone paired with a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, while the consistency felt soft and silky in the pan without being powder. The eyeshadow applied well and blended out easily while lasting for nine hours on me.

Cool Matte #5 is a dark, taupe brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a blendable texture that was a smidgen dusty. It wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

Cool Matte #6 is a brightened, light-medium cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was easy to use on the lid. The color started to fade after eight hours on me.

Cool Matte #7 is a muted, medium-dark eggplant with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which was buildable, but the texture ran a dusty and thinner, so it was prone to sheering out when applied. It wore well for eight hours.

Cool Matte #8 is a dark gray with a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, while the texture was firm and harder to work with on the lid as it often went on unevenly and was harder to blend. It lasted for eight hours on.

Cool Matte #9 is a brightened, dark navy blue with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though the consistency had a dustiness to it that made it a little messier to work with (definitely apply this before your base products!). The color lasted for eight and a half hours before fading.

Cool Matte #10 is a medium, purpled taupe with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty, powdery texture that made it prone to sheering out on the lid. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Cool Matte #11 is a cool-toned, medium bluish-gray with a satin finish. It had sheer coverage with a powdery texture that made it harder to apply and build up. It started to fade after seven hours of wear.

Cool Matte #12 is a deep, blackened brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
