Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Makeup Palette

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette
Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette

Kevyn Aucoin The Legacy Palette ($165.00 for 0.79 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one contour powder. My favorite products are the highlighter and contour powders, which will come as no surprise, as I have reviewed them favorably in the past as standalones. You actually get more of each product in the palette than in the individual compact, but for $65 you could purchase the Contour Book Volume II, which also contains 0.17 oz. worth of the Celestial Powder and 0.14 oz. of the Sculpting Powder (plus other standout product sin the brand’s line, like a small version of Starlight and larger sizes of the cream versions of the highlight/contour found in this palette). I don’t think the eyeshadows are worth the additional expense; the shades themselves are dupable, but the formula feels dusty, dry, and sometimes powdery and other times stiffer. They blended out better than I expected, and they lasted seven to eight hours (so not too shabby), but they were more semi-sheer to semi-opaque and prone to sheering out when applied.

According to my calculations, the palette contains a total value of $263.20 worth of product. Here’s how the value breaks down:

  • $68 worth of The Celestial Powder
  • $56 worth of The Sculpting Powder
  • $139.20 worth of The Essential Eyeshadow (going off of The Essential Eyeshadow Set price per ounce)

Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise Duo

Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise
Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a duo that features a powder eyeshadow and a miniature-sized pencil eyeliner. This is one of four duos available (I will review the others).

The Huntress is described as a “smoky golden-bronze.” It’s a smoky, gray-ish taupe with hints of warmer brown in its undertone paired with fine gold shimmer and a metallic sheen. The formula is supposed to have rich color payoff with a “metallic effect.” It had good pigmentation, and the texture was fairly smooth, but there was a dryness there that made it harder to apply evenly to bare skin. If I used it damp, it applied just fine, but dry, it didn’t look quite right (and I didn’t see anything on Charlotte Tilbury’s website about using these damp). The color started to crease and breakdown after seven hours. Stila Substance (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2015 (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Milani Bella Charcoal (11) (P, $4.49) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Full Orbit #3 (LE, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Robbery (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Inglot #444 (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury On the Prowl (LE, ) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Full Orbit #4 (LE, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Pistol (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Derailed (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC A Glimmer of Gold #4 (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Dior Capital of Light #1 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Posh Pedigree #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #8 (LE, $25.00) is cooler (80% similar). Dior Blazing Gold #5 (LE, ) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Amber Moon is described as a “rich amber.” It’s a dark, chocolate bronze with fine gold pearl. The formula is supposed to be “pigment-rich,” “glide on easily,” with a “long-lasting finish.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation in single pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was moderately creamy and glided on without tugging on the lash line. It lasted for nine hours on me before noticeably thinning.
Sephora Cocoa (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Broque (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Our Secret (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Groundbreaker (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Locket Book (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Overboard (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes fifteen eyeshadows–twelve that are new, three that are repromotes–housed in a compact palette. It’s a good palette filled with mostly warm-toned neutrals in light and medium shades. The pops of color make it a little less typical, but I’m not sure they were the most suitable shades for this palette. I wish there was more differentiation between some of the shades, particularly in undertone. I personally wish that they had taken more inspiration from the artist’s body of work so that they could create a more versatile palette that would work with more skin tones than such a literal translation of Stefani’s look. If you like the shades and don’t already have a lot of neutral palettes, the quality is there, and the palette is a great value–$228 worth of eyeshadows!

Blonde is described as a “pale beige with pink iridescent shift.” It’s a light, warm ivory with pink iridescence and a frosted finish.

Bathwater is described as a “pale beige with gold pearl.” It’s a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen.

Skimp is described as a “pale nude satin.” It’s a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a satin sheen.

Pop is described as a “pale coral with iridescent sparkle.” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. You could feel the sparkle/micro-glitter in the texture, as it tended to apply unevenly and had noticeable fall out during application as well as during wear. The color lasted about eight hours, but I would use a tacky base with this one. Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Harajuku is described as a “metallic blue-pink with iridescent micro-shimmer.” It’s a light-medium pink with cool undertones and slight sparkle over a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a dense consistency that tended to loosen as it was blended. It was hard to keep it looking intense, as it seemed prone to sheering out. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading.

Danger is described as a “deep metallic royal blue with blue micro-sparkle.” It’s a rich, medium-dark navy blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen.

1987 is described as a “bright metallic yellow-gold.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen.

Colour Pop Butter Cake (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (95% similar). Burberry Gold Shimmer #1 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Burberry Gold Shimmer #2 (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Blackout is described as a “blackest black matte.” It’s a deep, dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt very soft, smooth, and almost cream-like in the pan.

ColourPop Vixen Lippie Stix Set

ColourPop Vixen Lippie Stix Set
ColourPop Vixen Lippie Stix Set

ColourPop Vixen Lippie Stix Set ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a limited edition set of six shades for the holidays. I liked the selection of shades, and I appreciate that there is a variety in the finishes (nice to see another shimmery shade from ColourPop!), but two of the six were stiffer and drier to use, which was disappointing.

Last Call is described as a “soft cool-toned mauve pink [with a Creme finish].” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had good pigmentation that covered evenly with smooth color and a lightly creamy consistency that didn’t tug when applied. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Crème Cup (P, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Fame (LE, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Clueless (LE, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Maybelline Peach Buff (P, $7.99) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Burberry Fawn Rose (P, $34.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Julian (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (DC, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Littlestitious (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Colour Pop Contempo (LE, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Dopey (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sake (P, $26.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Long Legged & Fabulous (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Personal Pick (LE, $19.00) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Ruffle is described as a “mid-tone warm terracotta [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a satin finish. It was fully opaque on the lips, and the color covered evenly and smoothly without gathering into lip lines. The texture was creamy enough not to tug, but it didn’t slide around at all so the wear time was longer at five and a half hours. It felt a little drying after four hours. MAC Oh Honey (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Huda Beauty Trendsetter (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Persistence (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Carnal (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (90% similar).

MAC Among the Fireflies (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Urban Decay 1993 (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (80% similar).

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

Jingle is described as a “true blue red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, and the texture of this shade had more slip to it than the average matte in ColourPop’s range. It glided on easily, but I was still able to get really crisp lines straight from the tube. This shade lasted for six hours and left a stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating for me. Tom Ford Beauty Ruby Rush (07) (P, $50.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Charlotte (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Reddy to Go (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Kinky (LE, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Silhouette (DC, $6.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Estee Lauder Decisive Poppy (P, $30.00) is darker, less glossy (95% similar).

Too Faced Rebel Heart (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Beauty Queen (P, $12.00) is more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C404 (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Weekender (LE, $5.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay 714 (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Don't Stop (P, $26.00) is more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay 714 (LE, $18.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Dylan (P, $35.00) is more muted (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Night Owl is described as a “vivid cool-toned hot pink [with a Creme finish].” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. The texture is thicker and creamier, with a lot more slip, than the majority of ColourPop’s Lippie Stix. It had opaque coverage, but it can show “lines” at times as it is easy to overapply due to the soft consistency in the tube. The color wore well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Buxom Exhibitionist (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Melted Jelly Donut (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Dominant (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Crush (DC, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Incorrigible (08) (LE, $50.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Maybelline Carnation Cabernet (970) (LE, $7.49) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Too Faced Melted Candy (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Fuchsia Flash (P, $7.99) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Anarchy (DC, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

#54 is described as a “red wine burgundy with red and hot pink glitter [with a Pearlized finish].” It’s a medium-dark, berry-red with fuchsia and ruby red micro-sparkle. The texture had a noticeable grit to it when touched to the lips from the sparkly bits, and the consistency was noticeably drier and stiffer to work with, so it did tug on the lips. This shade lasted the longest, as it was still going strong after six hours, but it was drying. Colour Pop Let's Play (LE, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Buxom Menace (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Guerlain Orgueil (P, $49.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Wes (DC, $35.00) is less shimmery, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Didier (LE, $35.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Surprise (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Plastics is described as a “deep red violet [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry purple with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. This was another shade that had a stiffer, drier texture in the tube, which made it harder to apply to the lips–it tugged and dragged, and the resulting coverage was uneven. The color itself was semi-sheer to semi-opaque. On me, the color lasted for five hours with some settling into lip lines, and it was drying overall. Maybelline Berry Bossy (P, $7.49) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Boogie (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Givenchy Heroic Pink (212) (LE, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Panda (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Anastasia #10 (Vol. 1) (P, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Smashbox Femme Fatale (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Warm Leatherette (P, $26.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Babes and Balls (LE, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Rocker Chick (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty #100 (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Violet Fatale (P, $50.00) is glossier (85% similar). Urban Decay Venom (P, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). NYX Aria (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Milani Embrace (LE, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, less glossy (85% similar). NARS Never Say Never (P, $27.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Si, Si, Me! (LE, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). Tarte Wet Suit (P, $22.00) is darker (80% similar).

ColourPop Fauncy Creme Gel Colour Collection

ColourPop Fauncy Creme Gel Colour Set
ColourPop Fauncy Creme Gel Colour Set

ColourPop Fauncy Creme Gel Colour Set ($33.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three eyeliner pencils and three gel eyeliners (in pots); all six shades are limited edition. This was a bit of a mixed bag; none of these were super pigmented in one stroke, with some that layered better than others. They are more unique in color, though, particularly Frill and Soiree.

Frill (Creme Gel Liner) is described as a “soft icy lavender.” It’s a muted, light-medium lavender with cool undertones and faint shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. The consistency was creamy enough to glide without tugging, but it didn’t migrate, and it’s not what I’d call smudgeable (which is often great news for longevity, but some may prefer a more smudging formula). It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. It’s a pretty unique color, which is a plus! Marc Jacobs Beauty (Luna)tic (64) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Soiree (Creme Gel Liner) is described as a “deep gunmetal with gold and silver.” It’s a dark, charcoal gray with warm, brown undertones and lighter gold pearl. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, and it was somewhat buildable, but it didn’t layer as well as most of the other shades in the formula have for me. The texture doesn’t feel dry, but it could be creamier. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before thinning. Colour Pop Soiree (LE, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Proud Peacock (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Night Porter (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Water Willow (LE, $16.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bustier (Creme Gel Liner) is described as a “deep blackened olive.” It’s a murky, blackened brown with hints of khaki/green in the base, but it reads fairly black overall. There appear to be very, very fine emerald shimmers in it. The texture was lightly creamy and didn’t tug on the lash line. One stroke yielded semi-opaque pigmentation, while two to three layers achieved full opacity. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours.

Soiree (Creme Gel Colour) is described as a “deep gunmetal with gold and silver.” It’s a smoky, blackened teal with green tones and slight gold sparkle. It is brighter and lighter compared to the eyeliner, as the shimmer seems more prominent (and larger in particle size) in the pot version. The texture was very lightly creamy–wish it had a little more slip–and fairly pigmented. The color wore for close to nine hours, but I had some sparkle that traveled.

Bustier (Creme Gel Colour) is described as a “deep blackened olive.” It’s a blackened brown with hints of murky olive in its base paired with a semi-matte finish. It was darker and had more depth than the pencil form, though they are similar in color. The texture is lightly creamy and applies fairly evenly in a single stroke. The pot version wore for nine and a half hours. MAC Darkness of Calm (LE, $17.50) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Night Clubbing (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Polar (Creme Gel Colour) is described as a “true black with multi-coloured glitter.” It’s a plum-tinged black with large silver, green, and violet glitter. The texture of this seemed dry to me; it was noticeably less creamy compared to the majority of the shades I’ve tried in the formula. I felt like this made for eyeliner that applied in dragged lines, where the edges were splayed and the color was uneven. The underlying black base lasted for nine hours, but there was fall out and migration from the some of the sparkle. With some sort of mixing medium, this might be workable, but just as-is, the dryness made it problematic. Bobbi Brown Twilight Night (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Black Swan (P, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS 47th Street (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Ether (P, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar).
