Laura Mercier Matte to Metal Caviar Stick Set

Laura Mercier Matte to Metal Caviar Stick Set

Laura Mercier Matte to Metal Caviar Stick Set ($58.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes six miniature-sized eyeshadow pencils. Four shades are part of the permanent range, while two (Ganache and Aubergine) are limited edition. The Caviar Stick formula is supposed to “glide on smoothly” and “blend effortlessly” while also being “long-wearing, transfer- and crease-resistant” with “rich colour payoff.” Most of the shades I have tested from the formula are very good and true to the claims, though occasionally a shade is less pigmented or less blendable (but wear seems to be most consistent). The set contains $86.90 worth of product.

Sugar Frost is a light-medium champagne gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–about 85% coverage or so to my eye–with a creamy, slightly “wet” feel to it that glided across the lid without skipping or tugging. It was blendable for about twenty seconds, and after it mostly dried down, you could still diffuse the edge a bit with a stiffer brush, so the formula is forgiving and easy enough to work with if you’re comfortable with pencils. The color lasted for nine hours before creasing. LORAC Uninhibited (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC The Naked Time (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Canter (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Fringe (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Fairy Golds #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Urban Decay Dirtysweet (P, $19.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rosegold is a light-medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was creamy and comfortable to apply, though the pigmentation was less impressive–at least it was buildable on the lid without lifting the first layer (the other one I have from last year is more pigmented). On, the color started to crease after eight and a half hours of wear. LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

Amethyst is a medium-dark, bronzy taupe with warm, red-brown tones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a nice creaminess that nearly applied itself with great coverage and adherence to the skin. It was easily blended out and lasted for nine hours. MAC Mortal #5 (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I544 Pink Granite (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Infinity #3 (P, ) is darker, warmer (95% similar).

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

Khaki is a muted, medium-dark olive brown with lighter green shimmer that gives it a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that applied evenly. The eyeshadow wore well for nine hours before creasing slightly. theBalm Lead Zeppelin (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Covenant (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

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

Ganache is a medium-dark, orange-toned brown with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nice pigmentation, though not totally opaque; almost like lipstick that has a little translucency and enables the natural lip color to come through. The consistency was creamy, but I found it dried down faster than the shimmery shades and was a little harder to blend out. It lasted for nine hours. Laura Mercier Truffle (P, $23.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Anastasia Fudge (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (95% similar). Zoeva Freshly Toasted (P, ) is cooler (90% similar).

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

Aubergine is a muted, plummy purple with warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was really creamy, so I initially worried about wear, but it still held on well for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly. It had good pigmentation and took about thirty seconds to dry down to a semi-matte finish, but it was never totally matte unless blended out quite a bit. MAC Worthy (LE, $16.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Colour Pop Two Much (LE, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set
Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($29.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes five travel-sized eyeliners. Three of the five shades could be significantly more pigmented and apply better (they just don’t go on very evenly!), and whoever depicted the color of Zodiac on the box made it appear like a teal hue, when it is nothing like that at all.

Zodiac is a blackened brown with lighter forest green and gold shimmer and pearl, so it appears more as a forest green with warm undertones. It had sheer coverage in one stroke, but it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with three passes. The texture glided well across the skin, but it just didn’t deposit color–almost like it was too waxy. Applied, it wore well for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Swamped (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Rue de Rivoli (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Dark Green (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Accuse is a medium-dark, slightly brightened, blue with a lighter blue and navy blue sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two layers. The texture had a noticeable chunkiness to it due to the amount of sparkle, though it didn’t feel rough on the lash line. It lasted for eight hours with some sparkly pieces that traveled. MAC Hyacinth (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Electric Cobalt (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Glamorous Thief (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Delirious is a muted, medium-dark eggplant purple with warm undertones and lighter violet shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage in one stroke, and it was buildable to almost solid color after two layers. It wore well for eight hours on my lower lash line, but the texture could have been a little creamier/denser to enable more even coverage. NARS Bourbon Street (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Resort (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Fancy Moves (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Image Conscious (P, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Ultraviolet (P, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals 6AM (LE, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Muse is a dark, chocolate brown with warm undertones and fine gold pearl. It had good pigmentation in one stroke, and it was lightly creamy and glided on with even, smooth coverage. It lasted for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Corrupt (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Zoeva Rock 'n' Roll Bride (P, $7.50) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Orpheus (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Dark Force (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D62 Diamond Brown (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Brown(out) (54) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Sephora Cocoa (P, $10.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Perversion is a deep, rich black with a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented and very creamy, while still wearing well (eight and a half hours). Make Up For Ever #1K (P, $17.00)(100% similar). MAC Black Brilliance (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Estee Lauder Blackened Black (LE, $20.00)(100% similar). MAC Smolder (P, $16.00)(100% similar). MAC Graphblack (P, $16.00)(100% similar). Guerlain Black Jack (01) (P, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). Stila Stingray (P, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Via Veneto (P, $24.00)(100% similar). MAC Definitely Black (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Puro Amor (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Swerve (P, $6.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Jet (LE, $24.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Smooth Manoeuvre (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Zoeva Black to Earth (P, $7.50) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). NARS Black Valley (P, $25.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Engraved (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Skully (P, $18.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Becca Champagne Glow Shimmering Skin Perfector Palette

Becca Champagne Glow Shimmering Skin Perfector Palette
Becca Champagne Glow Shimmering Skin Perfector Palette

Becca Champagne Glow Shimmering Skin Perfector Palette ($34.00 for 0.26 oz.) includes three highlighters in white, peach-orange, and copper. The latter two have been released in full-sized, individual compacts previously, but this is the first time for the white highlighter (Pearl). If you like Becca’s highlighters, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like this palette, other than that you may already own two of the three shades. Like the Afterglow palette, the texture of the three powders seemed drier here, not quite as creamy or as finely-milled as the full-sized versions. It doesn’t seem to impact the overall appearance of them on the skin, and they’re still blendable and easy to apply. Becca’s highlighter formula is what I’d call a strong highlighter–intense, obvious, over-the-top–and a little goes a long way, so I recommend using a very feathery highlighting or fan brush to get a luminous sheen to avoid emphasizing pores.

Pearl is a pale, milky white with a frosted shimmer. The texture was fairly soft and smooth, but it felt a little dry–almost looser and not as dense as the full-sized pressed highlighters do. It had good pigmentation that could be blended out or built-up for a really high-shine sheen. The highlighter lasted for eight hours on me. Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Coloured Raine Fashion Show (P, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Burberry No. 01 White (LE, $68.00) is darker (95% similar). NYX Liquid Prism (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Fanny Pack (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Tarte Champagne Pink (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Shimmer Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Luna (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Moonlight White #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Delice (78) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Trophy (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Climax (LE, ) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Where the Dreamers Go (LE, $2.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Snow (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). NYX Moon Glow (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Champagne Pop is a light-medium, golden orange with warm undertones and a frosted, almost metallic sheen. Again, the texture felt looser, a little dry, compared to the full-sized version I have from earlier this year. It doesn’t feel particularly dry (certainly not crumbly or stiff), but I think one of the more standout characteristics of Becca’s pressed highlighters is that creaminess, that richness, which I don’t quite get here. Luckily, it still applies easily, blends and diffuses on the skin, and lasted for eight hours without emphasizing pores. Huda Beauty Capri (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Fearless (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Plisse Lumiere de Chanel (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Precious Petals (LE, $4.99) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). NARS Tribulation (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Frenzy (Left) (P, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Nightlight (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, brighter (95% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Idol (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). J. Cat Beauty Twilight (-, $9.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Becca Topaz Flashes Gilt (LE, $34.00)(90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew You (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $33.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Frosted (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Dior #001 (P, $56.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Electric Slide (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blushed Copper is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, reddish undertones and a frosted sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, blendable consistency. This one is metallic enough that it emphasizes pores if I’m not careful with my application. I’m medium in complexion (MAC NC25-NC30), and it works as a highlighting blush on me, as it does yield visible color on my skin tone. If you’re fairer than I and aren’t sure how to use it, you can use it with a fan brush for even subtler warmth, or you can mix it with Pearl or Champagne Pop to lighten. Becca Blushed Copper (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (95% similar). Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Unapologetic (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar).

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette
Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette ($65.00 for 1.24 oz.) includes 32 eyeshadows, six blushes, and two highlighters. It’s a disappointing palette as the majority of the shades were somewhere between dry, powdery, and dusty (or some combination thereof) with sheerer coverage and a short-wearing formula.

NARS Panic (Left) (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Pretty Vulgar Mirror Mirror (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Supernova (LE, $27.00) is darker (90% similar).

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

Sunset is a muted, medium-dark orange-toned brown with a semi-matte finish. It was lightly powdery but had good color payoff and wore for seven and a half hours on me. Laura Mercier Earth (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). KIKO 100 Cookie (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette
Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features 14 eyeshadows in various hues. The palette leans more neutral than colorful or bright, but there are a few pops of color (pink, purple, aqua). Probably the biggest surprise here is that there are only two official mattes and then one or two more that are satin-to-matte (like the black eyeshadow is effectively quite matte in practice). This is one of the best Anastasia palettes I’ve tried to-date; it is well-worth the price point, and I think the color selection is at least a little more interesting than most palettes.

Two shades (Pink Champagne and Hot Chocolate) are part of the permanent line and Buttery was released in another palette, and while Blush should be a repeat, the Blush included in this palette is totally different from the Blush I reviewed previously.

Pink Champagne is a rosy, taupe brown with a metallic sheen and copper sparkle. It had good color payoff and adhered well to bare skin with minimal fall out over time. The texture was smooth, dense, and blendable. It lasted for eight hours on me. Sephora Flirting Game (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color
Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color ($66.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes a full-sized powder eyeshadow and full-sized cream eyeshadow housed in a two-tiered component. They worked well together, but both were weaker on their own and less impressive as a result. The cream eyeshadow was hard to apply evenly; the darker color paired with greater slip yielded sheerer, streakier results, but the formula is buildable and opaque in two layers, so it can work. I just don’t think it’s as good as past iterations of the cream eyeshadow formula (which I’m normally a huge fan of).

Also, surprised to see this product already increase by $6 since the last release!

Night Sky (Powder) is a muted, blackened blue with hints of gray and multi-colored shimmer (primarily violet, blue, and aquamarine) over a mostly matte base. The texture was soft, smooth, and thinner than most Tom Ford eyeshadows that I’ve come across. It had good color payoff, but it was prone to sheering out a bit in practice, so it is a shade better applied over the cream eyeshadow or over a base and patted on, rather than swept on, if you want to maintain intensity. The color lasted for eight hours on me. NARS Giove (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Shaken Not Stirred (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Night Sky (Cream) is a blackened navy blue with fine shimmer that gives it a pearly sheen. It was very pigmented, but it was also quite emollient, yet thick, which made it apply with more semi-opaque coverage. I was able to layer to get totally opaque coverage, but it was very difficult to do in just one stroke. The color looked streaky without a second layer as well. Once it dried down, the color didn’t budge or fade for twelve hours. MAC Aphrodisiatic (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). NARS Glenan (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).
