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).

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 more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Dior Electrify #5 (P, ) is warmer (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 more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S214 Ultramarine Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar).

CoverGirl Sapphire Flare (315) (LE, $4.99) is more shimmery, darker (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. NARS Abyssinia (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Pearl (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Thunderstruck (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I514 Pink Ivory (P, $21.00) is darker (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. Make Up For Ever ME116 Silver (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #3 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Icy (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Tisse Smoky #2 is a brightened white with cooler undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that was finely-milled and adhered well to bare skin. This shade wore for eight hours before fading. Colour Pop Tassel (P, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Pearl (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Tisse Smoky #4 is a medium-dark black with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish.

MAC MACnificent Eyeshadow Palette

MAC MACnificent Me Eyeshadow Palette
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.

Frankly Frosty is described as a “light grey taupe.” It’s a light-medium, gray-leaning taupe with a matte finish.

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.

Viseart Sultry Muse (05) Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Sultry Muse (05) Eyeshadow Palette
Viseart Sultry Muse (05) Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Sultry Muse (05) Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a set of warm-leaning eyeshadows in mostly neutral hues, like beige, brown, and copper. I wish there was more variation in the colors as there are a few copper-hued shades that overlap enough that they seem redundant to me. The quality is good overall with a few shades feeling a bit dusty or powdery in the pan, but they all lasted at least eight hours on bare skin and had semi-opaque to totally opaque pigmentation across the board.

Gucci Cosmic Deco Magnetic Color Shadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.17 oz.) is set of smokier shades that leans warm in tone. Three of the four shades are quite shimmery, and those three performed better than the one more matte shade, unfortunately. I’m always surprised to see brands miss on a matte black eyeshadow, which should be a very basic color and one where blendability is really necessary for it to perform well and be as versatile as a basic should be.

Cosmic Deco #1 is a brightened, white gold with a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, dense, and buttery consistency that applied well to bare skin and lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Valley Girl (LE, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I414 Yellow Ivory (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Snowflakes (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Buxom Born Glam (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Coloured Raine Clutch Pearls (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Nuance #1 (P, ) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Coloured Raine Crown (LE, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Sea Shells (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). LORAC Quartz (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #2 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Charming (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Thunderstruck (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Cosmic Deco #2 is a medium-dark, olive green with warm, brown undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft but dry to the touch, where the shimmer felt loose against the eyeshadow itself, so I found it more challenging to apply. It’s one that would work better with a damp brush or over a primer, I think, to minimize the fall out and tendency to sheer out. It lasted for eight hours on me. Giorgio Armani Green Iron (06) (P, $39.00) is lighter (95% similar). Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Cosmic Deco #3 is a dark, gunmetal gray with cool undertones and a frosted, almost metallic, finish.

Cosmic Deco #4 is a medium-dark black with warm, brown undertones and a smattering of silver shimmer over a mostly matte finish. The texture was drier, a little thin, but it had an overall dusty consistency and application–where it doesn’t apply evenly or blend out as nicely as it should. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Tarte Don't Stand Black (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). YSL Fetiche #4 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).
