Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette
Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) just debuted on the brand’s website and will be available at all the other retailers later this month/early June. I’m not in love with the texture that Urban Decay has in their cheek palettes, as there’s always something off about them. Strip didn’t impress me, as two shades were problematic. The best shade was the bronzer, but if you aren’t a fan of more shimmery bronzers, that will likely make this an automatic pass.

Strip Bronzer is described as a “deep bronze shimmer bronzer.” It’s a medium-dark, subtly red-toned brown with gold shimmer and a frosted finish. It’s shimmery enough to impart a soft glow to the skin, but it doesn’t seem to emphasize my pores (just maintains the status quo). It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft without being powdery. The color lasted for eight hours on me, which is about average. Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Bronzer (LE, $90.00) is lighter. Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is similar. Wet ‘n’ Wild Bikini Contest (P, $3.99) is less shimmery. Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is yellower. Urban Decay Baked (P, $26.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Strip Highlighter is described as a “golden shimmer highlighter.” It’s a light-medium, golden brown with larger, gold sparkle and shimmer. It doesn’t bind together well and almost seems like a loose highlighter. It tends to catch on any baby hairs you may have on your face, and it doesn’t adhere to the skin, so it travels to parts unknown. It also emphasizes pores, unfortunately. The sheen was visible for six and a half hours. Too Faced Snow Bunny (P) is less sparkly. MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is lighter, less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Strip Blush is described as a “deep mauve blush.” It’s a medium, rosy plum with subtle warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff, while the texture felt soft, it also seemed powdery and didn’t bind together well, so it sheered out easily. This shade stayed on the skin for seven hours. Divergent Misty Rose (LE) is darker, pinker. Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer. Tarte Elevated (LE, $26.00) is cooler-toned. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane (P, $25.00) is darker.

Dior Atlantique (344) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Atlantique (344) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Atlantique (344) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new and limited edition, cool-toned palette that features three blue-hued eyeshadows, a shimmery silver, and a medium brown (that is very warm-toned, so it seems out of place). The good news is this wasn’t as bad as Rivage, which made any blue eyeshadow lover instantly tear up. It’s still not a hit, and it’s hard to forgive major errors at this price point. The darkest blue is incredibly powdery, dusty, and sheer. The silver shade is mostly silver shimmer, and the light blue is so-so. The best performer was the medium blue, followed by the brown, which was still a little powdery. On the lid, wear time varied dramatically depending on shade, so if that’s a deal-breaker, I’ve noted the wear times with each shade below.

Atlantique #1 is a sheer, sparkly silver with cool undertones. There’s no real colored base, just silver shimmer and larger silver sparkle. It’s better patted over another shade than used on its own. There was some fall out over time, and it seemed to last about five hours before most of the sparkle had moved onto bigger and better things (namely, my cheeks). Divergent Transform (LE) is less sparkly. Dior Dulcinee #3 (LE) is a cream product, more pigmented. MAC Platinum Love (LE, $19.50) is less sparkly, more metallic. bareMinerals Steam (LE, $14.00) is more metallic. MAC Bleuluxe #1 (P) is more pigmented. Chanel Infini (P, $28.50) is more pigmented. Bobbi Brown Tinsel (LE) is more pigmented. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Atlantique #2 is a light-medium, sky blue with a subtle sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and the texture was a little powdery to work with, so it was prone to disappearing when blended on the lid. It’s best to pat this shade in place and only finesse the edges. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading. Dior Dulcinee #5 (LE) is greener. MAC Clearwater (P, $18.50) is a cream product, more muted. Disney by Sephora Blue Oasis (LE) is greener. MAC Sky Blue (P, $15.00) is slightly greener. Giorgio Armani Swimming Pool Turquoise (LE) is darker. Dior Swimming Pool #3 (LE) is a touch cooler-toned. Dior Blue Lagoon (374) Eyeshadow #1 (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Atlantique #3 is a navy blue with fine, navy blue shimmer. The texture was soft but quite powdery, and the resulting color payoff was dismal–semi-sheer at best. It applied unevenly, and it was difficult to blend out on the lid. It managed to stay on for almost seven hours, though, but getting it to look half-decent was a challenge. MAC Indigo Blend #2 (LE) is darker. Makeup Geek Nautica (P, $5.99) is more shimmery. Chanel Metamorphose (44) #4 (LE) is darker, brighter. MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $15.00) is darker. bareMinerals Climax (P) is brighter, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Atlantique #4 is a medium, muted periwinkle blue with a soft, pearly sheen. It had really good pigmentation, and the texture was balanced between soft and smooth without being powdery. This color wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading. Wet ‘n’ Wild I Don’t Do Camouflage #3 (LE, $2.29) is darker. NARS Rated R #2 (P, $24.00) is more matte, brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Atlantique #5 is a medium brown with very fine golden shimmer, yellow-y undertones, and a satin finish. It had fairly good color coverage, and the texture was just slightly powdery. The color lasted well for eight hours. MAC Butterfudge (P, $15.00) is lighter, cream product. Wet ‘n’ Wild Naked Truth #5 (P, $2.29) is darker. Makeup Geek Hipster (P, $5.99) is more muted, less warm-toned. Too Faced Hazelnut (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. Makeup Geek Brown Sugar (P, $5.99) is similar. Anastasia Truffle (LE) is warmer. theBalm C4 (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. Disney by Sephora Bazaar (LE) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dior Sundeck (564) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Sundeck (564) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Sundeck (564) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new and limited edition, warm-toned set of five eyeshadows. Overall, the palette was nicely pigmented, wore well (about eight hours across the board), and blended easily. The darkest brown was the only troublesome shade, and it was on the drier side, but if you use a soft, fluffy brush, you won’t notice the deficiencies much.

Sundeck #1 is a light, yellow-toned beige with a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, while the texture was soft, velvety, and not powdery. It wore well for seven and a half hours. Kat Von D Entomology (P) and Divergent Altruistic Almond (LE) are yellower. theBalm #24 (P, $6.50) is lighter. Laura Mercier Buttercream (P, $23.00) is lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Naked Truth #2 (P, $2.29) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Countess (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Bleach (LE, $18.00) is similar. Urban Decay Broken (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Foxy (P, $18.00) is similar. Inglot #353 (P, $6.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sundeck #2 is a light-medium, orange-gold with a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, while the texture was soft and blendable. This shade wore well for eight hours before starting to fade. Maybelline Beige-ing Beauty (85) (LE, $6.99) is a cream product. MAC Vanilla Extract (P, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Until Dawn #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #10 #2 (P) is similar. Urban Decay Blunt (P, $18.00) is similar. Dior Night Golds #4 (LE) is slightly lighter but very similar. bareMinerals Surreal (P) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sundeck #3 is a brightened, medium orange with fine gold shimmer and a soft, pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, and the texture was blendable, soft, and velvety without being powdery. This color lasted for eight hours without fading on me. Tarina Tarantino Trumpette (LE) is lighter. Fyrinnae Pyromantic Erotica (P, $6.80) is similar. Disney by Sephora Rajah (LE) Maybelline Fierce & Tangy (P, $6.99) is a cream product. Dior Aurora #5 (LE) is darker. Chanel Tigerlily (P, $28.50) is lighter. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Mimosa (P, $14.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sundeck #4 is a golden, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was rich, while the texture was soft and buttery. This shade wore for just over eight hours before I saw signs of fading. Chanel Mirage (95) (P, $36.00) is a cream product. bareMinerals Hot Commodity (LE) is darker. Dior Golden Flower #4 (LE) is very similar. Too Faced Buttered Rum (LE, $16.00) is also similar. Maybelline Downtown Brown (P, $6.99) is a touch less golden. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sundeck #5 is a medium-dark, red-toned brown with a satin finish. It had decent color payoff, but the texture was drier and somewhat stiff to work with, so it was more difficult to blend and apply on the eye. MAC Espresso Blend #3 (LE) is warmer. Divergent Burnt Mahogany (LE) is lighter. Chanel Quadrille #4 (LE) is darker. LORAC Sable (P) is similar. NARS Flowers 3 #4 (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren (210) Style Eye-Con No.7 Eyeshadow Palette
Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren (210) Style Eye-Con No.7 Eyeshadow Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren (210) Style Eye-Con No.7 Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows that range from bright white to deep teal. It’s a new and limited edition palette for summer. The quality of the palette was very good, with only the blue being slightly powdery and a bit sheerer, but by no means was it even bad. Even though the palette is a rainbow of colors, they’re all noticeably muted–they’re not bright, neon, in-your-face colors, but rather a softer variation of a rainbow theme. For those who prefer more matte finishes, you’ll want to look elsewhere, as all seven shades are more frosted. All seven shades wore at least as long as eight hours with some lasting well after nine hours.

The Siren #1 is described as a “cloud white pearl.” It’s a bright, frosted white with subtle cool undertones. It had good color payoff, while the texture was dense, buttery, and smooth. Kat Von D Lunar Lights (P) is warmer. theBalm #11 (P, $6.50) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy #1 (P) is slightly warmer. Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #1 (LE) is similar. theBalm Sassy (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Flawless Figure (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Crystal Avalanche (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Chillproof (LE, $15.00) is brighter, more metallic. Inglot #453 (P, $6.00) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #2 is described as a “rusty red pearl.” It’s a medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent pigmentation, and the texture felt so soft and smooth that it almost felt like a cream eyeshadow. NARS Cambodia (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #2 (P, $9.99) is similar. Urban Decay Gash (DC, $18.00) is darker. Milani Primary #2 (P, $6.99) is similar. Milani I Heart You (P, $6.99) is more orange. MAC Crimson Tryst (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Cranberry (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Spicy Smoke (LE, $32.50) is similar. Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily (P, $30.00) is darker. Sugarpill Asylum (P, $12.00) is warmer, more metallic. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #3 is described as a “copper shimmer.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with warm, golden undertones and a frosoted finish. The color payoff was fantastic, while the texture was blendable and easy to work with. theBalm #21 (P, $6.50) is lighter. theBalm #6 (P, $6.50) is browner. Makeup Geek Glamorous (P, $5.99) is less frosted. Anastasia Rum Cake (LE) is darker. Clarins The Essentials #6 (LE) is lighter. LORAC Gold (P) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #4 (P) is more orange. Guerlain Cuivre Ora (LE, $35.00) is darker. Urban Decay Chopper (P, $18.00) is lighter. NARS Isolde #1 (P, $24.00) is similar. bareMinerals Bragging Rights (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #4 is described as a “marigold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with a frosted, almost metallic, finish. The pigmentation was opaque, and the eyeshadow felt soft and creamy. theBalm #40 (P, $6.50) is less metallic. MAC Lily White (2014) (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Captivating #1 (LE, $21.00) is less metallic. theBalm D1 (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Goldfinger (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Rising Star (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Standing O (P) is lighter. Inglot #403 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #5 is described as a “seafoam pearl.” It’s a medium, seafoam green–a mix of blue and green, leaning green–with a soft, pearly sheen. The color payoff was great, and this shade was easily applied due to its soft, smooth, creamy texture. theBalm B2 (LE, $16.00) is lighter. CoverGirl Turquoise Glow (325) (LE, $4.99) is lighter. MAC Lucky in Love (LE, $21. is bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #6 is described as a “cobalt pearl.” It’s a cool-toned, purple-blue with a soft, pearly sheen. It had fairly good pigmentation, but it was the least pigmented of the seven, and the texture was slightly powdery to work with. Sephora Collection My Boyfriend’s Jeans (19) (P, $13.00) is darker, bluer. Urban Decay Blue Bus (LE, $18.00) is purpler. MAC Wintersky (LE, $32.50) is purpler. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl #2 (LE) is darker, purpler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technoir (P, $14.00) is darker. bareMinerals On the Rocks (P) is lighter, less pearly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #7 is described as a “sea smoke glitter pearl.” It’s a deepened, dark teal with cool, blue undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was dense and buttery. bareMinerals Deep Sea (LE, $14.00) is less frosted. Sephora Collection Midnight Swim (16) (P, $13.00) is darker. Milani Mix It Up (P, $6.99) is slightly greener. bareMinerals Editor’s Pick (LE) is more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Maleficent Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Maleficent Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Maleficent Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 4 x 0.05 oz.) has four, permanent shades of eyeshadows and is housed in a specially-packaged quad with the collection’s design on the palette’s lid. All four shades were fairly good with decent to good color payoff, mostly blendable, and all lasted eight hours on me. he eyeshadow quad contains four permanent shades, so you could purchase these shades right now for $10 per pan, plus the empty quad for $8, which would run you $48, so you would save $4 if you went with the Maleficent quad, and it would come with special packaging. However, if you purchased everything separately, you would be able to remove the shades from the quad at your leisure, whereas the pre-made quad will come with the shades glued in. If, perhaps, you didn’t love all four shades, you could also substitute another shade from the permanent range that would suit your needs better.

Personally, I was terribly disappointed in this collection–particularly since we saw what MAC released for Venomous Villains–and its abundance of permanent products for such a small collection. If it had been a small, well-edited release with new and interesting shades, that would be have amazing. This just feels like a missed opportunity.

Goldmine is described as an “intense gold with shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, yellow-orange gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff, though it wasn’t fully opaque, and the texture was fairly soft and smooth. It wore well for eight hours on me. Inglot #430 (P, $6.00) is darker. bareMinerals Remix (LE) is similar. OCC Triptych (P, $14.00) is more metallic. Chanel Pearl River #3 (LE) is similar. MAC Gaelic Gold (LE, $15.00) is darker. Disney by Sephora Triton (LE) is lighter. MAC Gilded Night #2 (LE, $21.00) is more glittery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ground Brown is described as a “dirty deep brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, subtly red-toned brown with a matte finish. The texture was really smooth, but it has a tendency to skip slightly. It applies and is easiest to blend if you use a fairly fluffy blush to apply it. This shade lasted for eight hours on me. Kat Von D Shadow Box (P) is more muted. Tarte Dream in Chocolate (LE) is darker. Too Faced Triple Fudge (P, $16.00) is similar. Laura Mercier Espresso (LE, $23.00) is darker. Chanel Charming #4 (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Boardroom (LE) is darker. MAC Embark (P, $15.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever #162 (P, $20.00) is similar. Inglot #326 (P, $6.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Concrete is described as a “muted taupe brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark, muted brown with a gray-ish overcast but still has some warmer, brown undertones. The texture was soft, smooth, and it had good pigmentation. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Kat Von D Shadow Box (P) is warmer. Tarina Tarantino Delightful #5 (P) is similar. Chanel Charming #4 (LE) is warmer. Too Faced Dark Chocolate (LE, $16.00) is darker. Urban Decay Secret Service (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer. NARS Bali (P, $24.00) is more matte. MAC Cross-Cultural (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Charcoal Brown (P, $15.00) is similar. Benefit Quick, Look Busy (P, $20.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Carbon is described as an “intense black [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark black with mostly neutral undertones and a matte finish. It’s worth noting that Carbon is usually a subpar black eyeshadow, and it’s often terrible when it is placed in a pre-made quad, but this might be the most pigmented, softest, and best iteration of Carbon I’ve come across. It’s not without its flaws, compared to other black eyeshadows on the market, but it is significantly improved from past releases. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette
Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette ($46.00 for 0.73 oz.) is a warm-toned eyeshadow palette that features twelve shades ranging from warm beiges to dark black to gold to brown. There is a variety of finishes as well, so there’s a lot of versatility in combinations within the palette. The larger eyeshadows are 0.095 oz. each, while the smaller eyeshadows are 0.049 oz. each, which brings the cost of the eyeshadows to $63.36/oz. The 8-pan eyeshadow palettes are $36.00 for 0.40 oz. (also includes a mini Autograph eyeliner, though, which would add 0.028 oz.), which is a cost of $90/oz. It’s a good quality palette overall, though Kat Von D’s eyeshadow formula tends to be particularly soft, which makes for easier blending, but some shades can sheer out a bit, and the texture can also be powdery at times. If you use an eyeshadow primer, some of the powderiness is minimized and will not be as noticeable. The eyeshadows wore well from eight to nine hours, depending on the shade (wear time noted by each shade below). The palette is on the larger size (physically), though it’s slim and its cardboard packaging will absorb impact, so it should still work for travel.

Entomology is described as a “matte cream.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a satin-matte finish. It had good color payoff, while the texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable without being too powdery. It wore well for eight and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Wrath is described as a “deep pearl orange.” It’s a medium-dark, copper-brown with a satin-matte finish. It had nice pigmentation, and the texture was soft and blendable. It lasted well for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Papilio is described as a “pearl chocolate.” It’s a medium-dark, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent color payoff with a soft, buttery texture that was easy to work with and wore well for eight and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Summerfly is described as a “glitter gold.” It’s a warm-toned, coppery-gold with a sparkly finish. The base had really good pigmentation, but the texture was a little gritty from the glitter/sparkle. The color itself stayed on for a solid eight and a half hours, but there was noticeable fall out. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Telepathy is described as a “pearl gold.” It’s a dirty golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was creamy, buttery, and dense, while the color payoff was very good. It wore well for eight and a half hours when I tested it. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Killing Jar is described as a “pearl copper.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a gold, frosted finish. It had great color payoff, and while the texture was blendable and soft, it was a smidgen powdery. This shade didn’t show signs of fading until after eight and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Delaney is described as a “pearl silver.” It’s a warm-toned, pewter with bronzy tones and a frosted, metallic sheen. It had nice pigmentation, and the texture was soft and smooth without being powdery. The color lasted for just over eight ours on me before starting to fade. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Vanish is described as a “matte taupe.” It’s a medium, warm-toned caramel-taupe with a matte finish. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and velvety without being powdery, and the resulting color payoff was excellent. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tiny Death is described as a “glitter cream.” It’s a light, yellow-toned beige with white sparkle over a matte base. The actual eyeshadow base wears for eight hours and is soft without being too powdery, but the glitter/sparkle doesn’t stick, so it just goes off on its own. Most of it gets trapped in the brush, so you don’t see it translate onto the lid (which also means that there’s not much fall out). See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Disintegration is described as a “pearl brown.” It’s a murky, olive-brown with warm undertones and a golden bronze shimmer. It had great pigmentation, and the texture was blendable and finely-milled, though slightly powdery. The color wore well for eight hours when I tested it. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Shadow Box is described as a “matte chocolate.” It’s a deep, dark brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was finely-milled, velvety, and soft. It wasn’t powdery, but it seemed a little thin. This shade managed to last for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Deadhead is described as a “matte black.” It’s a medium-dark black with a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery and dry, so it had decent to good color payoff, but it wasn’t fully opaque. It was buildable, though, so you could definitely get it to be truer-to-pan if desired. It wore well for eight and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
