Bobbi Brown Smokey Cool Eye Palette (Quick)

Bobbi Brown Smokey Cool Eye Palette
Bobbi Brown Smokey Cool Eye Palette

Bobbi Brown Smokey Cool Eye Palette ($48.50 for 0.22 oz.) contains six eyeshadows with finishes that range from matte to sparkle.  Overall, it’s just a so-so palette.  If you like your colors sheerer, then you may still want to consider it.  If you’re looking for a more intense smoky eye palette, you’ll want to keep looking.

Ivory is a pale, cool-toned white with a matte finish. This shade is part of the permanent range (and has been in a lot of Bobbi Brown’s palettes, too). It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was soft, slightly powdery, but blendable. Here are several see comparison swatches for white eyeshadows.

Graphite is a pale, muted peach-brown with silver sparkle and shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff. It has a “Sparkle” finish, which tends to be a sheerer product that’s very sparkly. I didn’t have fall out issues with this shade, though! bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE) is more frosted. Too Faced Cheers! (LE) is lighter, more frosted. MAC Rubenesque (P, $18.50) is darker, warmer, cream. LORAC Light Bronze (P) is less sparkly. Maybelline Barely Brazen (P, $6.99) is less sparkly, more metallic. Chanel Beige Lame (LE, $28.50) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Smokey Grey is a slightly warm-toned, taupe with a soft, frosted finish. The texture was a little dry, and the color payoff was semi-opaque. It has a “Shimmer Wash” finish, which means it’s supposed to be “sheer, lightly pearlized.” Anastasia Antique (LE) is less frosted. Urban Decay Armor (LE, $18.00) is grayer. Urban Decay Mushroom (P, $18.00) is also grayer. MAC Satin Taupe (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Stolen Moment (LE, $21.00) is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Truffle is a pale, rose-tinted beige with a matte finish. It is very similar to my skin tone, so it might be hard to gauge pigmentation, but when I noted it, the color was mostly opaque but the texture was somewhat powdery. Urban Decay Habit (LE, $18.00) is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Freestyle (LE, $18.00) is very similar. Urban Decay ABC Gum (P, $18.00) is warmer. Inglot #341 (P, $6.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Platinum is a pale, golden beige with a frosted sheen. It was semi-sheer, and it is also a “Sparkle” finish, which again, all tend to run sheer (but sparkly). This had more of a sparkly sheen than full-on sparkle or glitter, and I didn’t notice any fall out with this shade. Too Faced Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #2 (LE) is lighter. Clarins Forest #2 (LE) is similar. MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE) is lighter. MAC Tenderly (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Vanilla Diamond (LE, $21.00) is also similar. L’Oreal Iced Latte (P, $7.99) is warmer. Bobbi Brown Bone (LE, $28.00) is more glittery. See comparison swatches.

Caviar is a medium-dark black with a matte finish. It actually has quite intense color payoff, but it is easily sheered out as it is on the powdery side. If patted on over a primer, it is more opaque, but it needs that extra boost. See comparison swatches.

Too Faced Jingle All the Way Palette (Quick)

Too Faced Jingle All the Way Makeup Palette
Too Faced Jingle All the Way Makeup Palette

Too Faced Jingle All the Way Makeup Palette ($25.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes eleven eyeshadows, one blush, one bronzer, and an iPhone 5 case.  It has a good mix of neutrals, pops of color, mattes and frosts, and it’s very self-contained. The price is right, and I could see it easily as a stocking stuffer, though the quality is just okay on the whole.  The iPhone case is a cute touch, though obviously the recipient would need an iPhone 5 to take advantage of it. This is a quick review, so I’ve provided dupes but haven’t gone into depth on a shade-by-shade basis. Overall, the quality is decent to good with most shades having fairly good payoff, soft and smooth textures, along with solid wear (eight hours for most).

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #1 is a sooty, medium-dark black with navy blue sparkle. It was dry, stiff, and didn’t have great color payoff. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #2 is a sparkling, slightly glittery, light beige with warm, golden undertones. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but I didn’t experience fall out with this shade. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #3 is a medium-dark, coppery brown with a frosted finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft and smooth. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #4 is a warm, golden, medium-dark brown with a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation, and the texturew was fairly soft and smooth. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #5 is a cool-toned, medium pink with blue undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation and applied smoothly overall. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #6 is a medium-dark purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a pearly finish. It was somewhat dry, so the color payoff was on the sheerer end of the spectrum. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #7 is a coppery orange with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had excellent pigmentation, and the texture was quite soft but a smidgen powdery. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #8 is dark, slightly cool-toned, brown with golden sparkle. It was on the powdery side, so the color payoff was semi-opaque. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #9 is a cool-toned, bluish-teal with a frosted sheen and teal sparkle. The sparkle did have some fall out, though a lot of the sparkle seemed to get caught in the brush. The color payoff was decent. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #10 is a cool-toned ivory with a matte finish. It had nice color payoff, and the texture was soft and blendable but just a smidgen powdery. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #11 is a soft, neutral-to-warm beige with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft and blendable. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Bronzer is a medium, coppery orange with a golden, frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft, blendable, and easy to apply. The finish, however, did emphasize pores somewhat. It lasted almost eight hours on me. See comparison swatches.

Jingle All the Way Blush is a cool-toned, medium-dark pink with blue undertones and silver sparkle/frost. It had good pigmentation, and it blended well on the skin. The texture did somewhat emphasize pores on me, and the color lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches.

bareMinerals Glamour Now Collection

bareMinerals Glamour Now Holiday 2013 Collection
bareMinerals Glamour Now Holiday 2013 Collection

bareMinerals Glamour Now Holiday 2013 Collection ($49.98 today only, regularly $61.00) has a lot of good things going for it. The best product is definitely the eyeshadow quad, which is good across the board. The luminizer is nice but does somewhat emphasize pores and didn’t wear as well as I’d like it to. The blush wore well for eight hours, felt soft and blendable, and had good color payoff. The finishing powder was just so-so; didn’t knock it out of the park as far as smoothing prowess went. The lipgloss is sheer, non-sticky, and then disappeared before the two-hour mark. I was extremely disappointed in the two brushes, as they were very scratchy and rough against the skin.

The Main Event (0.17 oz.) is a full-sized eyeshadow palette that features four shades. bareMinerals’ Ready eyeshadow formula is one of my favorites, and this quad was no exception–nicely pigmented, buttery, soft and smooth textures, and long-wear–ten hours without fading or creasing (no primer!).

Celebrate is a pearly, light beige with soft, warm undertones. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was so soft and buttery. Urban Decay Broken (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Sahara Dust (LE, $15.00) is a touch darker. MAC Shroom (P, $15.00) is more pearly. See comparison swatches.

Ball Gown is a warm peach with a frosted, champagne finish. The pigmentation was really rich and opaque, while the eyeshadow felt silky-smooth and blended easily. Too Faced Cheers! (LE) is similar. Disney by Sephora Splendid (LE) is lighter. MAC Summer Haze (LE, $21.00) is browner. bareMinerals Custom Made (LE) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Cheers (V2) is a medum-dark, taupe with subtle warm undertones and a pale champagne shimmer. The texture was soft and smooth, while it had good color payoff. This shouldn’t be confused with Cheers found in The After Party, as the shades are very different (and I wish they hadn’t re-used the name). Anastasia Antique (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Nameless (LE, $18.00) is darker, less shimmery. Urban Decay Vaporize (LE, $18.00) is similar, more sparkly. Urban Decay Derailed (LE, $18.00) is slightly cooler-toned. Dior Millenium (381) (P, $30.00) is a cream product. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #7 (P) is similar. Disney by Sephora Kill Joy (LE) is also similar–cooler-toned. theBalm Selfish (P, $16.00) is similar. NARS Grand Palais #1 (LE, $24.00) is similar. MAC Hazy Day (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Stiletto is a deepened, warm-toned burgundy with multi-colored micro-shimmer. It’s a shade that may have shimmer but predominantly looks and acts like a matte finish when applied. It’s very pigmented, but it has a very soft, almost powdery, texture, so it sheers out somewhat when applied in a sweeping motion. Makeup Geek Last Dance (P, $5.99) is slightly more shimmery. Too Faced Soiree (LE) is darker. Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

The Magic Moment (0.16 oz.) is a light-medium, peach with a hint of pink and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft and finely-milled. On the skin, it blended well, but it did somewhat emphasize pores. On fair skin, it may work as a blush and highlighter, but on my medium complexion, it was mostly a highlighter. It wore well for seven and a half hours and looked somewhat faded after just over eight hours of wear. It’s about half the size of a full-sized Luminizer (which is 0.30 oz.). MAC Talk of the Town (LE, $25.00) is less warm-toned. MAC Amber Glow (LE, $25.00) is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Definitely Defined (LE, $30.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Brightening Pearl Perfect Light Mineral Veil (0.23 oz.) is a pale, pink-tinged beige with moderate sparkle. For reference, the swatch shows a very, very heavy application so you can get a visual of what it looks like. I wore the product dusted all over the face in the full face photo to see an actual application of the product. It slightly mattifies and noticeably smooths out the skin’s natural appearance. It seemed a wee bit powdery all over, though I did not notice the sparkle, and I was worried I would. It didn’t seem to affect the longevity of my foundation.

Glamour (0.03 oz.) is a light-medium, neutral-cool pink with a satin-matte finish. The texture was soft and very finely-milled. The blush applied with good color payoff and blended easily on the skin. This is full-sized. It lasted for eight hours when I tested it. MAC Formal (LE) is similar. theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is slightly darker. MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $25.00) is also darker. Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $43.00) is brighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (P, $26.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Dazzler (0.15 oz.) is a muted tangerine with gold sparkle. On lips, it’s sheer and adds warmth, glossiness, and sparkle. In all the full face photos showcasing the cheek products, I mixed this with Glamour blush for more color. This is full-sized. It wore for over an hour and a half but didn’t make it to two hours. It had a vanilla-mint scent and did tingle a bit (like mint often does) when applied–not painful but noticeable for the first few minutes. Chanel Envolee (427) (LE, $29.50) is less shimmery. Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $29.50) is lighter. Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is more shimmery. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Paper Lantern (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Not included in the ratings are: Smoke & Define Eyeliner (kohl wore well for 8 hours, could have been creamier/smoother to apply; liquid eyeliner didn’t smudge, fade, or flake over 8 hours) and Lash Domination Mascara (some lengthening, thickening, didn’t flake or smudge). The brushes were awful–I wouldn’t recommend using them at all, and they’re something I would just throw away. The eye brush was horrific; so, so scratchy and rough against the skin, let alone the more delicate and sensitive eye area! The large face brush was also quite scratchy, but it also shed a lot when I was just brushing it against my arm. These were some of the more painfully scratchy brushes that I’ve come across recently!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Tonite Lights Glitter Dust

Marc Jacobs Stagelight (302) Tonite Lights Glitter Dust
Marc Jacobs Stagelight (302) Tonite Lights Glitter Dust

Marc Jacobs Tonite Lights Glitter Dust ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new and limited edition holiday product from the brand that’s supposed to give “lustrous, long-wearing metallic” eye color with a “weightless sparkle finish.” First and foremost, if you don’t love sparkle and all things glittery, these aren’t for you. Now, if you love sparkle and glitz, you may still like these, but they don’t escape the biggest problem with heavily glittered products: fall out.  There’s a moderate amount of fall out; not the worst, but it’s not just a few stray sparkles–my husband and sister both commented on the “disco” happening underneath my eyes.

The consistency of the product feels like a powder and cream hybrid, as it almost feels wet, but then not quite. These are more delicate powders, as when I pressed against Stagelight, it actually dislodged large chunks–kind of like a melting glacier. They do feel smooth otherwise; almost emollient as they slide across the skin. I had noticeable creasing after five hours of wear, and it didn’t significantly worsen between and the eight-hour mark, which was surprising, but I wouldn’t consider these long-wearing given the creasing and fall out. The price point is a bit higher than I would expect (I would have expected $26 or at most, $28), and something I noticed was that Stagelight was only 0.06 oz., while the other two shades were 0.10 oz.

Stagelight (302) Tonite Lights Glitter Dust ($32.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “translucent overlay of iridescent sparkle.” It’s a sheer, sparkling white and silver mix. Dior Golden Snow #3 (LE) is similar. Dior Lune (001) (P, $30.00) is less sparkly. MAC Bleuluxe #1 (P) is similar. Bobbi Brown Tinsel (LE) is more silvered. MAC Angelic (P, $21.00) is similar. MAC White as Snow (LE, $32.50) is similar. Illamasqua Beguile (P, $25.50) is darker. Chanel Fantasme (P, $36.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches.

Ultraviolet Light (304) Tonite Lights Glitter Dust ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft plum with an overlay of iridescent sparkle.” It’s a muted, plummy purple with neutral-cool undertones and an iridescent sparkle. This was smoother and more pigmented compared to Stagelight (which is supposed to be translucent, so it’s expected). It was semi-opaque when applied dry, and then was more opaque when applied with a damp brush. Disney by Sephora Carpet (LE) is less sparkly. Disney by Sephora Ursula (LE) is darker, less sparkly. Clinique Lavish Lilac (P, $16.00) is a cream product. MAC Swelter (LE, $15.00) is less sparkly. MAC Joy & Laughter #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is similar. Giorgio Armani #27 (LE, $33.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.

Blacklight (306) Tonite Lights Glitter Dust ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “smoky black with an overlay of iridescent sparkle.” It’s a gray-black with silver sparkle. It had decent color payoff applied dry, and it was more opaque when applied with a damp brush–it was also smoother with that application method. Urban Decay Moonspoon (P, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Jet Couture (P, $21.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette ($52.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows, each 0.05 oz. (equivalent of a full-sized eyeshadow), in hues of pink and brown. It also includes a dual-ended eye brush, and a week’s worth of samples of each of their primers. The case is a rose gold metal with “waves” indented across the exterior.  Overall, it’s a really lovely palette filled with eyeshadows that are highly pigmented, soft, blendable, and easy to use.  With ten of the twelve, they wore well for just over eight hours without fading or creasing.  Darkside was my favorite shade, as it was somewhat unusual, and it wasn’t too frosted.  Dust was the worst performer, which isn’t unexpected, as it has a fair amount of glitter, which makes the texture less smooth and results in fall out during wear.  Trick had minor fall out during wear, but it applied better and had more color payoff.

It is now available at urbandecay.com! 🙂

Comparisons to Naked 1 and Naked 2 can be found here!

Strange is described as a “pale neutral pink matte-satin.” It’s a pale, neutral-to-warm white-pink with a satin matte finish.

MAC Magic Moor (LE, $15.00) is more frosted, lighter. Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate (LE, $29.00) is totally matte. MAC Brownluxe #5 (P) is browner. MAC Graphology (P, $15.00) is totally matte. Giorgio Armani #2 (P, $33.00) is brighter, more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

By the by, I also thought that three shades in this replicated Tom Ford’s In the Pink trio surprisingly well — Strange, Burnout, and Trick (mix in Dust with Trick to get even closer).
