Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, smoky set of shades ranging from a pinky-beige to deep purple. I loved the color combination put together here, as using the blackened green made for an interesting time, but the quality just isn’t there. I wish the eyeshadows were softer and less dry, even if they were sheerer, but the thinner, dusty texture made for a lot of extra work to really blend and diffuse the eyeshadows on the lid.

Eclectic #1 a medium-dark eggplant purple with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There’s a dusting of fine shimmer on it, but it’s really hard to see applied. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a really dusty consistency that made for tougher application and blending. It wore for seven and a half hours before fading. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 16 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Delectable (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Silver Lining (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #6 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #2 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Mulled Wine (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #2 is a sofot, light pinky-beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thin, dusty texture but applied well, even though it only lasted for seven hours on me. MAC Pretty (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Call Me Bubbles (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Moz (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Exuberante #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Smitten (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Cop-a-Feel (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Sensation (102) (LE, $29.50) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Vanilla Kiss (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Lucius (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Nubile (DC, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky #1 (P, ) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #3 is a brightened, light silver with a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that didn’t get powdery or too dense to work with. There is an overspray, so it appears more metallic in the pan or if swatched without removing the overspray (I always take a brush to the surface and get rid of any oversprays first before swatching). It stayed on well for seven and a half hours. Kat Von D Holy Bible (DC, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Sterling (P, ) is brighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME202 Iceberg Blue (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Oyster Mushroom (LE, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar). theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Crazy Paris #3 (LE, ) is more muted (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Pretty in Paris (LE, $9.99) is darker (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Les Aquas #4 (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #1 (P, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Inglot #447 (P, $6.00) is brighter (90% similar). NARS Flowers 3 #1 (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar).

NARS Silver Factory (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #4 is a deepened–but muted–green with fine green shimmer over a mostly matte finish. Applied, it looks mostly matte as the shimmer doesn’t seem to bind with the base product. It had good pigmentation and blended out fairly well while lasting for eight hours. LORAC Forest (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm #3 (P, $6.50) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Black Ivy (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Punk (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel L'Intemporel de Chanel #2 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar).

Giorgio Armani Emeraude (04) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #11 (P, ) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #5 is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a dry, dusty consistency that made blending more difficult as the color would look patchy and uneven. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. bareMinerals Center Stage (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Jungle Love (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar). Too Faced Meow! (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #3 (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Huckleberry (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five eyeshadows ranging from pale peach to shimmery, navy blue. It’s not the worst palette I’ve come across from Dior, but it had that signature miss–rich blue eyeshadow–that really brought down the palette as a whole, though the other four shades were okay but nothing impressive.

Exuberante #1 is a soft, medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had so-so color payoff with a lightly powdery texture that didn’t adhere as well to the skin without a base. The color blended out well, and it lasted for seven and a half hours for me. Chanel Signe Particulier #2 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Black #6 (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Power Player (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Chino (LE, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Eyeshadow #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #2 is a soft, light pink-peach with a fine gold pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that ran a little dusty. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte What a Wonderful Pearl (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Stone (Mountain Sunset) (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Blush Stilettos (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Eclectic #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #2 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Strange (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Cambon #2 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Smitten (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Dope (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Sensibility (LE, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Outta Luck (LE, $5.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #3 is a light-medium gold with subtler, warm undertones and a lightly frosted finish. In the pan, it looks metallic, but it is primarily an overspray and the underlying color is a lot less shimmery. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that made it harder to achieve true-to-pan color on the lid without it sheering out. It wore for seven and a half hours before I noticed fading. LORAC Moonlight (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Mother of Pearl (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Storm (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). YSL Rosy Glow #2 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Guerlain Calligraphy #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Golden Glow #2 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Electrify #2 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Entrelacs #1 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Telepathy (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Snow (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Beigely (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Zoeva Yet to Come (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Photosphere (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Lancome Filigree (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Natasha Denona Cream (21S) (P, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #4 is a deepened navy blue with subtle, satiny shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery and dry, so it sheered out a lot and was difficult to layer. It could have blended more easily, though a lot of the color seemed to disperse in the air if you made sweeping motions. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Royally Blue (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Viseart Sapphire (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Estrella (LE, ) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Chanel Metamorphose (44) #4 (LE, ) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #3 (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Navy #6 (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Etiquette (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $39.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Arcturus (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #5 is a muted, dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen paired with very, very fine shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that made blending more challenging–it tended to stick where it went initially and was less easily diffused as a result. The color lasted for seven and a half hours. Too Faced Yule Log (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Toasted Espresso (LE, $14.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Saharienne #3 (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Going Nuts (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Smut (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Warm (Winter 2016) Eyeshadow #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Bastille in the Night (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Fingers Crossed (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Dior Parisian Sky #5 (LE, ) is darker (90% similar).

Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette
Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette

Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette ($68.00 for 0.72 oz.) is a smokier set of shades that mixes cool and warm undertones to create a gradient of color ranging from light gold to smoky purple to matte black. I think the color combination is more unusual but still familiar. The textures were very, very similar to Urban Decay Naked Smoky to me (all owned by the same parent) — the mattes had a thinner, slightly dusty, “noisy” texture; there’s a distinct sound that I can hear when my brush passes across the surface of them that I don’t notice with a lot of other eyeshadows. It applied better than it swatched, and the product seems more buildable than anything else. I felt like my eyelids look a little drier with this formula on. The palette is best paired with your go-to primer, as it will help you get truer-to-pan color and greater intensity, though the wear with most shades was near to the eight-hour mark without a primer. I have a few of these shades as singles from several years ago (so I don’t know if they have reformulated at some point in the last four or five years), but the versions in the palette are less dense and drier to me. The palette itself is large and feels a little bulky, but it contains a lot so I think it is travel-friendly if you don’t midn the weight or are going for a longer trip; and I consistently had a little struggle getting it open (just doesn’t seem to have a good groove to open for my finger/hand size, I guess!).

As a heads up, Filigree, Exhibition, Zip Me Up, Volcano, IT List, Kitten Heel, and Clock Strikes 12 are all shades that show up as shades in the individual, permanent Color Design eyeshadow range.

Filigree is described as a “light gold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, buttery yellow gold with a frosted finish. It had fairly opaque coverage with a soft, blendable texture that was just a smidgen dry. It wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Canter (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Dust (LE, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Bling (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Minx (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Eggnog Latte (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Alexandre Trois (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Sand (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Let Me Explain (P, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #1 (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Taurella (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Tuscan Storm #1 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Moon on Their Wings (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Famous (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Lights On (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Tarte Funny Girl (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Dior Exuberante #3 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC In the Meadow #2 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chouquette is described as a “peach matte.” It’s a light, warm-toned beige with very subtle shimmer, but it’s not totally matte. Applied, it looks more matte than anything else. The texture has a thinner, dusty kind of texture, so it is more prone to sheering out when blended or kicking up excess in the pan so use a gentler touch when grabbing this shade. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Brule (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Laetus (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Queen Bee (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Sand Out from the Crowd (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #4 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Rust (Highlight) (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm #24 (P, $6.50) is darker (95% similar).

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

Parfait is described as a “light pink matte.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned pink with a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a powdery consistency, so it blended well but could exacerbate dryness on the lids without a primer underneath. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. LORAC Jelly Donut (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Charitable (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Ballet (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar).

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

Joie is described as a “golden-bronze shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, godlen pewter with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was smooth but a little dry, while the color payoff was mostly opaque and the eyeshadow was still easy to use and applied well. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Indulge (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Cle de Peau Pewter Veil #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

LORAC Prosecco (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Voyage is described as a “muted purple matte.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a noticeably powdery texture. It was better built-up in thinner layers, and of course, primer would make it sing. It was very blendable without sheering out too much, despite its powderiness. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Sepia (LE, $19.00) is lighter, more pigmented, better quality (95% similar). Makeup Geek Bake Sale (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Rebel (P, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Sante is described as a “brown matte.” It’s a soft, medium brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The powder had a thin, dusty texture with semi-sheer coverage. It was harder to build this shade up for me in practice, though I was almost able to get medium coverage (no primer, of course). While it seems dusty, it does blend well on the skin. It lasted for seven hours. Urban Decay Downfall (LE, $19.00) is warmer, better quality (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Tuscan Storm #3 (P, ) is darker, more pigmented, better quality (95% similar).

Exhibition is described as a “orchid shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium rosy mauve with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage that couldn’t be built up on its own, as it had a tendency to sheer out if more product was added. The dusty texture made it difficult to get it to stick evenly to bare skin. It seemed faded and “worn” after six and a half hours of wear. NARS Kari (P, $29.00) is lighter (95% similar). Becca Ombre Rouge #2 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Dress Me Up (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Winter Dream (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Zip Me Up is described as a “deep purple shimmer.” It’s a dark, smoky purple with cooler undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic sheen with a little sparkle. The sparkle doesn’t stick well to the underlying eyeshadow, so there was some fall out during application. It had a denser texture compared to the majority of the palette, but I wouldn’t actually describe it as a dense texture. It had good pigmentation, and it applied fairly well to the lid but did sheer out a bit. It wore for eight hours on me. MAC Sly Girl (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Volcano is described as a “silvery gray shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle warm undertones and a cooler, distinctively gray overtone. It had a soft, frosted shimmer to it that gave it a more pearly finish. It had good color payoff, while the texture shared that dustiness that most of the shades have had in this palette. This shade seemed lighter than the single version I have. It lasted for eight hours. Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Couture is described as a “dark brown matte.” It’s a dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage and had a firm consistency that made it hard to apply and blend out. It looked as patchy applied to the lid as it did in the swatch. It wore for near to eight hours, but it just didn’t look very good. I feel like this is one of the shades that would be reached for often, so it is a disappointment that it is hard to work with. Viseart Cool Matte #5 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Kitten Heel is described as a “gold copper shimmer.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with warm undertones and warm, golden frost. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that applied decently to the skin, but it didn’t seem like it binded together as well as it could so it actually applies best with fingertips, sponge-tipped applicator, flat synthetic brush, and then patted and packed on rather than swept on (or else it sheers out considerably!). It lasted for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Scene (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Clinique Pink and Plenty (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar).

Tenacity is described as a “purple metallic.” It’s a brightened, medium taupe brown with warmer undertones and a cooler, gray metallic sheen. It had good color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that seemed to have larger chunks of sparkle in it, which didn’t combine with the powder well so they tended to dust away. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Viseart Velvet (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Moon (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (90% similar).

Clock Strikes 12 is described as a “gray metallic.” It’s a smoky, dark taupe brown with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a thin texture that tended to go on unevenly. I highly recommend using a very feathery brush and wear a base shade or primer underneath to make blending more manageable. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Chanel Entrelacs #4 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Undercover (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Posh Pedigree Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a set of smoky neutrals that leans neutrla-to-warm but not strongly warm-toned. All four shades have some shimmer to them with three of the four being rather frosted, so for those who prefer less shimmery brow bone highlights or a more matte crease shade, this palette may require additions to work. The texture of most of the shades was quite soft and smooth–less dry than your typical Mineralize Eyeshadow–and pigmentation was true-to-form with sheerer coverage when applied dry, richer coverage when applied with a damp brush. The two darker shades were a little dusty/dry, though, so I didn’t find this as good as Pure Bred. The wear was eight hours across the board before I noticed any signs of fading.

Posh Pedigree #1 is described as a “white lemon.” It’s a muted white gold with subtle, warm gold shimmer that gives it a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation applied dry with opaque coverage when applied damp. It had a very smooth, silky consistency and blended out beautifully. Sephora Clash (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Viseart Nuance #1 (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Next Season (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Pin-up (LE, $14.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Posh Pedigree #2 is described as a “dirty grey.” It’s a muted, medium-dark taupe with cooler overtones with more of a neutral undertone and frosted finish.

MAC Pure Bred Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Pure Bred Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Pure Bred Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Pure Bred Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a set of warmer neutral shades with a more frosted finish overall. It’s a good palette, though everything is dupable, so you may find you have colors like it. I think you’ll want to add-in your go-to brow bone highlighter, as using the lightest shade in this was pretty stark due to the high-shine finish of it! The Mineralize Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “low to medium coverage” when applied dry and “more intense coverage and colour” when used wet. The texture of these felt a lot smoother than the majority of MAC’s Mineralize Eyeshadow range–they had a really silky, finely-milled consistency that adhered well to the skin and blended out nicely.

Pure Bred #1 is a a cool-toned beige with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque or better pigmentation both wet and dry, though it was fully opaque and a little more metallic when applied damp. The texture was very soft, smooth, and finely-milled. This shade wore for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Bones (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Morning Freshness (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain Beaugrenelle Ecrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($93.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned, blue-leaning shades that range from a silver to blue to navy blue. I’m not keen on the formula Guerlain’s been using in their recent eyeshadow palettes, as it is drier with a dusty feel that makes them prone to fading, sheering out, and generally not apply well. I wish there was more hold to these, and the eyeshadows would bind better so they would be easier to use. At this price point, it leaves me completely disappointed.

Beaugrenelle #1 is a light, silvered taupe with a fine, gold pearl and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a dry, dusty consistency that made it hard to apply and keep from sheering out on the lid. It lasted for seven hours before noticeably fading. MAC Breaking Ground (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Bones (LE, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #3 (P, ) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Midnight 15 (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Rockstar (LE, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Verve (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Taupe Secret (01) (P, $34.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #2 is a muted, medium-dark gray with a bluish tinge and a matte finish. The texture was very smooth and silky with a real creaminess to it that made it very easy to blend on the skin. It wore for eight hours before fading. Makeup Geek Concrete Jungle (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Hello Kitty Playdate (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Delphes #2 (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Deep Taupe (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Sephora Berlin Underground (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar).

MAC Interior Life (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #10 (P, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Inglot #339 (P, $6.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #3 is a light beige with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that was easily blended on the skin but doesn’t stick as well to bare skin so I would recommend a primer with this one. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Sephora Canvas (LE, ) is brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Broken (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Rust (Highlight) (P, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty She Was (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Disney by Sephora A Wish (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Beaugrenelle #4 is a muted, medium-dark blue with a pearly sheen. It had so-so pigmentation with a drier, dust texture that was harder to apply to the skin. It lost a lot of intensity applied, as it didn’t adhere well to bare lids. On me, I couldn’t achieve more than semi-sheer pigmentation and had noticeable fading after six and a half hours. Too Faced Midnight in Paris (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip (DC, $19.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Too Faced Blueberry Swirl (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Clinique Big Blue (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Steel (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Bright Moon (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I112 Chrome (P, $21.00) is more muted (90% similar).

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

Beaugrenelle #5 is a muted, dark navy blue with a matte finish. The color payoff was good, while the texture felt soft and silky, though it was thin. Applied, I struggled to apply it evenly, as it became patchy the more I worked with it on the bare lid. Over primer, it applies more evenly, but it needs some extra time and patience. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Stingray (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #02 (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Maven (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Ash (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild I'm His Breezey #3 (P, $2.29) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Naval (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Kamchatka (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Inked (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #332 (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Midnight Shadows (LE, $22.00) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Beaugrenelle #6 is a muted, blackened blue with a matte finish. It’s a cream eyeliner, and it is fairly firm/stiff in the pan, so it is really prone to apply unevenly on the skin as there is quite a bit of drag. I would recommend applying as your eyeliner, and then using a smudging brush to blur some of the unevenness, as the formula is blendable. It wore well for eight and a half hours as an eyeliner on the lower lash line. Kat Von D Tornay (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Inglot #389 (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Midnight Kiss (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Grey Horizon (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Starry Night (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). LORAC Dark Navy (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Prussian (DC, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Inked (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar).
