Sephora Surfin’ USA and Midnight Swim Colorful Eyeshadow

Sephora Surfin’ USA (14) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “azure blue shimmer.” It’s a bright, medium blue with a hint of yellow that gives it an aqua/teal leaning (but it’s more blue than it is teal). It has a pearly sheen. Shades like Inglot #322, Inglot #371, MAC Electric Eel, and NARS Mad, Mad World #1 are all a bit bluer and matte, so the finish makes them rather different in practice. Make Up For Ever #118 is lighter. Make Up For Ever #83 is slightly greener-tinted and has a golden shimmer. MAC Parrot is darker. Sugarpill Afterparty is bluer, darker. Urban Decay Peace is lighter. Urban Decay Clash is also bluer (and a cream product). NARS South Pacific #1 is lighter. See comparison swatches here.

Maybelline Precious Pearl and Icy Mint Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows

Maybelline Precious Pearl Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm ivory with a frosted shimmer and finish. It looks more golden in the pot, but swatched and applied, it looked closer to white (and I have warm undertones, so those would normally bring out the warmth in a shade like this). MAC Angelic is cooler-toned. MAC She’s Got Class is slightly cooler-toned. MAC The Cool Elite is more of a pure white. Dior Fairy Golds #3 is similar. Estee Lauder Bronze Dunes #2 is warmer. Guerlain Terra Azzura #1 is similar but a powder.  See comparison swatches here.

L’Oreal Endless Pearl, Dive Right In, Infinite Sky Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Endless Pearl In 24HR Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff, but it has the kind of texture that works best dry, as it tends to crumble and stick to itself when applied wet (so it doesn’t apply as smoothly).  Dry, it can be somewhat powdery and may look chalky on darker complexions.  This is a shade you’ll find across brands, but it’s a great basic shade that works well as a highlighter on lighter complexions or as a neutralizing color to sweep over the lid to even out their color. Bobbi Brown Ivory, MAC Shroom (warmer, satiny), Urban Decay Walk of Shame, Wet ‘n’ Wild Drinking a Glass of Shine #5, Urban Decay Anonymous (satiny), theBalm Adagio, and MAC Brule are all rather similar.
