MAC By Request Eyeshadows (2013 Edition)

MAC Ashbury Eyeshadow is described as a “matte taupe grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a cool-toned, gray-brown with a hint of green (at least on my warmer complexion; I think it will be less apparent on cooler skin tones) and a matte finish. It had good color payoff and had a soft, smooth feel. Urban Decay Pistol is shimmery. NARS Bali is darker. MAC Legendary Black is darker, shimmery. MAC Concrete is darker. Inglot #348 is much darker. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Alchemist’s Curse, Pyromantic Erotica, & Superstar Eyeshadows

Fyrinnae Alchemist’s Curse Arcane Magic Eyeshadow ($6.80 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pink shimmer and sparkle on black.” It’s a deep, blackened purple with pink shimmer. The texture is soft, finely-milled, and smooths out whether applied damp or patted over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy. This one was supposed to shift to a “golden green” when closer to light or held at a different angle, but no matter how I maneuvered my arm, I only saw it go from purpled-black to black with pink sparkle. I even tried using a mirror to see the effect so I could stand further away but no luck. Nevertheless, the way this sparkles as it catches the light (with movement) reminds me of Swarovski crystals–it’s very sparkly and shimmering. It was fully pigmented with both applications. Disney Wonder by Wonder is less shimmery. Urban Decay Tornado is lighter. MAC Young Punk has larger shimmer. Bobbi Brown Black Violet is lighter, cream. See comparison swatches.

NARS Bavaria, Kamchatka, Namibia, Yamal Eyeshadows

NARS Bavaria Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep sea blue.” It’s a muted, bluish-teal with a pale gold shimmer-sheen. It had decent color payoff, but it definitely needs to be patted on and built up on the lid. The texture was slightly stiff to work and didn’t blend easily with the other matte shades in this launch. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen is more intense, brighter. MAC Sky is similar. MAC Rain Drop is darker, greener. L’Oreal Endless Sea is very comparable. Guerlain Les Aquas #2 is lighter. Dior Blue Lagoon #4 is similar. Inglot #413 is more metallic, brighter.

NARS Las Ramblas & Via de Martelli Larger Than Life Eyeliners

NARS Las Ramblas Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold.” It’s a warm, yellow gold with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke and was buildable to semi-opaque color coverage on the lash line, though it wasn’t totally even so it does need to be smudged and blended a bit after applied to get the best results. The consistency could have been somewhat creamier/easier to glide on. It wore well for seven hours but has noticeably thinned out after eight hours. Chanel Vegas Gold is darker, more orange. Make Up For Ever #9L is slightly less yellow. See comparison swatches.

CoverGirl Gold Flame (330) & Ice Flame (345) Flamed Out Shadow Pencils

CoverGirl Gold Flame (330) Flamed Out Shadow Pencil ($7.99 for 0.08 oz.) is a warm, yellow gold with a pearly sheen. It’s not too frosted, but it’s more shimmery than a satin finish. It had fairly good color payoff in a single stroke and was buildable to mostly opaque color; it did need some light blending (with a finger tip or a fluffy brush) to even out some of the color on the lid, but overall it was nice. It wore well for seven and a half hours and was lightly creased after eight hours of wear. CoverGirl Melted Gold is similar but a powder. Disney Triton is similar, slightly warmer, powder. Chanel Cool Gold is darker. Sephora French Riviera is lighter, powder. MAC Goldmine is warmer. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #3 is similar. Chanel Pearl River #3 is similar. OCC Acacia is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Remix is similar. Make Up For Ever #10 is similar but a powder. See comparison swatches.
