YSL Grey Splash (01) Full Metal Shadow
YSL Grey Splash (01) Full Metal Shadow

YSL Grey Splash (01) Full Metal Shadow ($30.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark gray with a metallic sheen. It was sheer with a thin, watery consistency that made it difficult to layer or apply evenly. The only way it worked decently (well, that’s probably a stretch) was to apply a thin layer with my fingertip and keep it as a sheer wash of color. One out of four pulls seemed to grab enough of the actual color product to apply semi-opaque coverage (that’s the lucky one you see as it is applied on my lid), and from there, it started to flake away after six and a half hours. Literal chunks of silver-gray pulling away from the skin and leaving gaping holes behind. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

YSL Eau d’Argent (02) Full Metal Shadow ($30.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a brightened white with sparkle and finer silvery-white shimmer. It is sheer, watery, and thin. It flakes off easily, wears poorly, and is incredibly challenging to build-up. I would apply a layer, let it sit, wait for it to dry… wait a little longer, just to be safe, and try applying another layer, but to even out the layers, it ends up causing the underlying dried layer to flake away. It had already half-flaked off after a mere two hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

YSL Misty Green (09) Full Metal Shadow ($30.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium grassy green with warm, yellow undertones and a golden, pearly sheen. The finish was a lot less metallic than the others, and my experience with this formula has shown that the less metallic, the better-performing. This shade wore well for ten hours, and it didn’t flake off, just slightly creased. It was semi-opaque applied to the lid and didn’t totally sheer out when blended, though there was some emphasis of lid texture. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

YSL Wet Blue (10) Full Metal Shadow ($30.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark blue with a silver-ish sheen and overall frosted finish. It had more opaque color coverage if you can manage to apply with your fingertip just-so, but in practice, I found it difficult to really get consistently opaque, even color–especially when blending, it seemed to flake off as it dried down fairly quickly. It started to crease and flake after eight hours (not even close to the 16-hour wear it is marketed as!). See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever #2 Colors You Crave Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever #2 Colors You Crave Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever #2 Colors You Crave Artist Palette ($42.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows and two blushes–yes, two shades are technically blushes–in an assortment of colors tempered by lighter neutrals and deeper, richer hues. I would only consider three of the ten shades to be truly bright, and two of those are the blushes. Four are more neutral, and then two shades are darker colors, but the depth makes them smokier and intense but muted. I think the palette is less intimidating for someone who isn’t as used to bright eyeshadows. The two blush shades are actually the two weakest performers in the palette, with one being a little under-performing and the other being unimpressive. The eight eyeshadows are very good, with four receiving perfect scores. That purple blush almost made me withhold my recommendation, but the other shades are that good.

I wish Make Up For Ever had included two other, vibrant eyeshadows rather than two blushes, though–perhaps two of these: ME338 Acidic Green, ME304 Emerald, I238 Blue Cedar, or D826 Fig. They could have also used a different neutral than ME512 Golden Beige, as it is also in the Nudes You Need palette, and they have plenty of golden-beige kind of shades to choose from. I would have also liked to see one or two more mattes/satins included here–7 of the 10 are of the metallic family.

The value of the palette is $141.75 based on $21/0.08 oz., though Make Up For Ever has a discounting system if you buy two or three (plus the coordinating case) individuals at a time. Based on that, you could get three for $44 or $44/0.24 oz., which would give the palette a value of $99. Another way to look at it is the cost of purchasing all nine individually, and presuming you buy in trios to maximize your discount, you would spend $132. As long as you’d use at least three shades in it, then you’ll pay less than purchasing the three as singles (you would get more product, but a little goes a long way with these).

I872 Pearly Pink is a very light, pinky-white with a pearly sheen–just shy of a truly metallic finish. It had rich color payoff with a really smooth, buttery texture that was incredibly easy to use on the skin. The color wore well for nine hours before creasing very slightly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

D552 Crystalline Gray Beige is a warm-toned, golden pewter with a sparkling, metallic finish. There is very slight sparkle to it, but the texture is dense enough to support the sparkle and actually keep it adhered to the skin with the most minimal fall out, even after nine hours of wear (like two sparkles). It was nicely pigmented with a creamy, blendable texture. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME512 Golden Beige is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy texture that just applied so well to the lid. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME910 Electric Magenta is a bright, fuchsia-magenta with cool, blue undertones and an iridescent violet sheen. It had good pigmentation, but it wasn’t as rich as the average Artist Shadow, and the texture felt thinner and less blendable as a result. The texture of my individual pan seemed better with a creamier, easier-to-use texture. It still wore well as a blush for eight and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME232 Turquoise Blue is a brightened, medium aqua-blue with a hint of warmer green undertones and a frosted finish. It was intensely pigmented with a beautifully blendable, buttery texture. It wore well for nine and a half hours before creasing very slightly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME700 Amber is a golden copper with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The color payoff was fantastic with rich, full color coverage. The texture felt creamy, dense, and remained very blendable on the eyelid. It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading a bit. This is an incredibly dupable color, though this version is excellent. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

S924 Purple is a brightened, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a satin-matte finish. The texture was thinner and drier, and it was harder to really apply this one evenly as a blush, as it didn’t blend easily. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was noticeably weaker than the individual I have of it. My single of this shade was also more blendable, though it wasn’t the best Artist Shadow for blendability that I’ve tried. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME302 Peacock is a blackened, brown-black with green-teal frost. The texture is incredibly cream-like, despite being a powder eyeshadow, and goes on as such: blendable, fully pigmented, and smooth. It wore well for ten hours before creasing. This shade was more pigmented and has a stronger bluish tone to its shimmer than my single, though when I blended the one in the palette out more, it appeared slightly greener. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME930 Black Purple is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had fully opaque color coverage with a cream-like, buttery texture. It felt creamier in the palette than when it released in the Artist Palette of it feels with a smoother sheen–almost as if the base is stronger and covers the shimmer a bit more–but it is more comparable to my single, though the palette version seems creamier still. It wore well for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs Violet Femme (82) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon
Marc Jacobs Violet Femme (82) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

Marc Jacobs Violet Femme (82) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “orchid shimmer.” It’s a medium, pinky-mauve with lighter pink and lilac shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, but it wasn’t the easiest shade to layer as it was drier and tended to skip for me. This is one of the issues I’ve had with Marc Jacobs’ formula: they aren’t always creamy, and it can even vary from purchase to purchase of the same shade. Once on, the color doesn’t budget at all over a fourteen hour period, and it seemed slightly more amenable to being layered/built-up in practice than when I initially swatched it. The disappointing part is that it is a more unique shade, too. Sephora Collection Strawberry Macaroon (P, $9.00) is lighter and more metallic (but infinitely easier to apply). Marc Jacobs Beauty Jazz(berry) (46) (P, $25.00) is darker. MAC Feminine Edge (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more sparkly, gel. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs Peridot (90) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “sage green shimmer.” It’s a brightened, light-medium green with warm, golden shimmer and a more metallic finish. It was incredibly creamy and softer than almost all other Marc Jacobs’ eyeliners I’ve tried, and as a result, it yielded nearly opaque coverage in one pass. It was easy to apply on the skin. It didn’t look faded or thinned after fourteen hours of wear. MAC Vent (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Sephora Collection Caipirinha Dreamin’ (LE, $9.00) is brighter. NARS Puerta del Sol (LE, $24.00) is darker. Sephora Collection Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $9.00) is darker, less shimmery. Urban Decay Freak (P, $19.00) is lighter, less shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs Top Seacret (88) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “teal shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark blue with very subtle “teal” leanings–like it is a little “warmer” compared to a true medium blue, but it isn’t really teal. The color payoff was semi-sheer in a single pass, and the consistency was a little dry, so it tended to drag and apply unevenly. I found it difficult to get really opaque color with this shade, and as a fan of teal (personally), this might have been the one I was most excited for. It wore for fourteen hours with no signs of fading or smudging. Kat Von D D.R.A. (P, $10.00) is bluer, cooler-toned. bareMinerals True Blue (LE) is less shimmery, darker. Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $32.00) is darker. L’Oreal True Teal (260) (P, $8.99) is warmer, more pigmented. Urban Decay Gonzo (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) (P, $25.00) is greener. Tarina Tarantino Kanzashi (P, $15.00) is lighter. NARS Khao San Road (P, $24.00) is slightly lighter. Sephora Collection Summer Cruise (23) (P, $9.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Deep End (P, $19.00) is slightly greener. bareMinerals 4AM (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery, bluer.

Marc Jacobs Navy Noir (76) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon
Marc Jacobs Navy Noir (76) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

Marc Jacobs Navy Noir (76) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “darkest navy.” It’s a blackened blue with lighter navy blue pearl shimmer that gives it a more pearled finish. It had fairly opaque pigmentation in a single pass that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was creamy enough to glide on without skipping or tugging on the lash line. The color lasted for over fourteen hours without fading/smudging. Sephora Collection Suede Shoes (P, $9.00) is warmer, less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty Midnight in Paris (P, $25.00) is slightly warmer. Sephora Collection Galaxy Girl (25) (P, $9.00) is blacker. NARS Night Flight (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay LSD (P, $19.00) is more sparkly, warmer. MAC Night Trail (P, $20.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs Orange Crush (78) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “deep orange shimmer.” It’s a lightly brightened, coral-orange with warm, reddish undertones and pink and gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a really creamy, glide-on consistency–one of the creamier shades I’ve tried from the brand. It lasted for fourteen hours without any signs of wearing away. I couldn’t think of any dupes for this one from what I’ve reviewed/seen myself!

Marc Jacobs Blue Me Away (84) Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($25.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “light sky blue pearl.” It’s a brightened, light-medium sky blue with a pearly sheen. It had fairly good color in a single stroke, and it was buildable to more opaque coverage on the lash line in two layers. The color stayed in place for fourteen hours and didn’t show any signs of fading or smudging. Tarina Tarantino Kanzashi (P, $15.00) is darker. bareMinerals 4AM (LE, $15.00) is darker.

Makeup Geek Fortune Teller Foiled Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Fortune Teller Foiled Eyeshadow

Here are the last four shades of the newly released Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) shades! :) As previously mentioned, the formula is designed as a cross between a powder and cream eyeshadow, and it’s supposed to have “intense pigmentation” with a “smooth, silky” texture. The brand has stated that those with oilier skin types will need a primer as these are prone to creasing due to the ingredients used in it. My testing showed that this formula creased faster over primers like Urban Decay Primer Potion and NARS Smudgeproof compared to just applying them to my bare lids, which are normal-to-dry. When applied over MAC Painterly Paint Pot, wear seemed to extend for about two hours longer than on bare lids.

Makeup Geek Starry Eyed Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “light champagne beige with slight pink undertones and a foiled finish.” It’s a muted, light-medium beige with hints of peach, warm undertones, and a frosted sheen. It had great color payoff that went on very smoothly. The texture was dense, thicker, and very smooth, but it sometimes can emphasize the texture of the lids if you over-apply it. Over NARS/Urban Decay primers, it lasted for five hours; on bare lids, seven hours; and over MAC Painterly, nine hours. Surratt Beauty Soie (P, $20.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani Gold Ashes (12) (P, $38.00) is lighter. NARS Valhalla (P, $24.00) is lighter. Tarte Champagne Bubble Bath (LE) is lighter. Anastasia Blush (LE, $12.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $18.00) is pinker. Stila Kitten (P) is very similar. Divergent Humble Sheen (LE) is pinker. theBalm #7 (P, $6.50) is warmer. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #2 (P) is lighter. Urban Decay Sin (P, $18.00) is lighter. MAC Summer Haze (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Sweet Heat (P, $20.00) is pinker. Benefit RSVP (P, $10.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Fortune Teller Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “true yellow gold with a foiled finish.” It’s a brightened, true yellow gold with subtle warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth texture that was easily blended on the skin. It wore for five and a half hours over NARS/Urban Decay primers, seven and a half hours over bare lids, and nine and a half hours over MAC Painterly. LORAC Unlimited (P) is warmer. Anastasia Gold Bar (P, $12.00) is lighter, less metallic. Make Up For Ever ME406 Golden (P, $21.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #5 (P, $9.99) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P) is cooler-toned, lighter. Disney by Sephora Triton (LE) is less shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Honey (DC, $18.00) is darker. NARS Corcovado (P, $24.00) is a cream product. MAC Gorgeous Gold (P, $16.00) is lighter. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Triptych (P, $14.00) is slightly darker. bareMinerals Remix (LE) is more muted. Inglot #403 (P, $6.00) is less metallic, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Untamed Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “bright coppery orange with warm undertones and a foiled finish warm coppery bright orange.” It’s a vibrant, copper gold with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. This shade had a lot of richness and depth to the color. It was intensely pigmented and really smooth and creamy to the touch. It wore for five and a half hours over NARS/Urban Decay primers, seven and a half hours on bare skin, and nine and a half overs over MAC Painterly. Colour Pop KathleenLights (LE, $5.00) is darker. Urban Decay Heat (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Butterum (LE) is lighter. Too Faced Caramel (P, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #3 (P) is darker, cooler-toned. Guerlain Petrouchka #3 (LE) is lighter. LORAC Nude #2 (LE) is lighter. Too Faced Rap (P, $16.00) Makeup Geek Gold Digger (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, lighter. Guerlain Crazy Paris #1 (LE) is lighter. MAC Amber Lights (P, $16.00) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Goldstone (P, $30.00) is less metallic. bareMinerals Connoisseur (LE) is darker. bareMinerals Louder (LE) is darker, more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Charmed Foiled Eyeshadow ($9.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “muted silvery light olive with taupe undertones and a foiled finish.” It’s a dirty, green-ish pewter with warm, khaki undertones and a metallic sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, but it wasn’t as opaque as other shades in the launch. The texture was soft, creamy, and blendable on the skin. On me, it lasted for five hours over NARS/Urban Decay Primer Potion, seven and a half hours over bare skin, and nine hours over MAC Painterly. This was one of the more unique shades in the collection. Giorgio Armani Onyx (05) (P, $38.00) is darker, cream. Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #3 (LE) is darker, less shimmery. Colour Pop Snow Flurry (P, $5.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Division (LE) is darker. Hello Kitty Cookie (LE) is slightly warmer. Kat Von D Melancholia (P) is darker. Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is lighter. MAC Cakeshop (LE) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever #1 (Nudes You Need) Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever #1 (Nudes You Need) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever #1 (Nudes You Need) Artist Palette ($42.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains nine Artist Shadows in neutral hues. I absolutely love this palette, and it’s so refreshing to see a brand put out a palette of their existing products that actually maintains the quality across the two. The pans are slightly smaller (24mm) than your typical eyeshadow pan (26mm, like MAC/Urban Decay), but I suspect they are deeper, as the full-sized eyeshadows are noticeably larger but only contain 0.02 oz. more (full-sized is 0.08 oz. each, and each in the palette is 0.06 oz.). The Artist Shadows have a few different finishes, and I find all of them to have a similar except the mattes; all the other finishes feel like a powder and cream hybrid, as they’re denser, creamier and have really rich, color payoff that adheres well to bare skin. The matte finish is more like a traditional powder eyeshadow, though Make Up For Ever’s version is nice: silky, smooth, finely-milled, and pigmented.

This is an excellent palette if you enjoy neutrals, love (or want to buy more) Artist Shadows, and don’t mind that there aren’t any mattes in it. If you only like palettes with a variety of finishes, including mattes, you might find this one a miss. I think the quality is extremely high, and it would easily pair with your favorite neutral mattes that you might already have, but for travel, I can see this not working for those who like to incorporate a few mattes into their look. This is the major downside to the palette (they could have definitely popped in a matte and/or another matte/satin), and one minor downside is that–unlike the holiday palette–the shadows aren’t removable. I am sure you could depot it with the right tools, but they don’t lift right out. The other minor downside is that the palette is on the heavier side (and had the bottom been magnetic and the eyeshadows removable, I would have understood).

The value of the palette is $141.75 based on $21/0.08 oz., though Make Up For Ever has a discounting system if you buy two or three (plus the coordinating case) individuals at a time. Based on that, you could get three for $44 or $44/0.24 oz., which would give the palette a value of $99. Another way to look at it is the cost of purchasing all nine individually, and presuming you buy in trios to maximize your discount, you would spend $132. As long as you’d use at least three shades in it, then you’ll pay less than purchasing the three as singles (you would get more product, but a little goes a long way with these).

I528 Pearl is a brightened, pink-tinged white with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that worked well on the skin. It wore well for nine hours. For me, this one seemed brighter and more white-based than my single of it (which is almost like a pale warm pink). I don’t notice the difference as much applied to the lid, so it might just be a mix of the shimmer catching more/less light. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

I514 Pink Ivory is a light beige with warm, creamy yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, blendable texture that worked well on bare skin and wore well for nine hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME512 Golden Beige is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy texture that just applied so well to the lid. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

S556 Taupe Gray is a cool-toned taupe with a hint of gray-purple and a semi-matte finish. The satin finish is more apparent if you really sheer and blend it out, but if you wear it as a mostly opaque color, it has more of a matte look. It had good color payoff, while the texture was blendable and easy to apply. It wore well for nine hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

D562 Taupe Platinum is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a subtle gray-ish cast in its metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth texture. On the lid, it was easily blended and stayed on well for nine hours. The palette version seemed smoother and as a result, more reflective giving it a slightly lighter color in certain lighting. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ME644 Iced Brown is a medium-dark, bronzy brown with warm, reddish undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with an incredibly smooth, creamy consistency that went on beautifully. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

S102 Onyx is an inky, deep dark black with a satin finish. It appears more matte on the lid; I don’t get a lot of sheen, but the satiny texture helps make it easy to blend. It had rich, fully opaque color coverage with a smooth texture. The color lasted for nine and a half hours before creasing on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

I544 Pink Granite is a medium-dark, warm-toned taupe with a pearly sheen. The color payoff was fully opaque, while the texture was smooth, blendable, and cream-like. It wore well for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

D652 Celestial Earth is a deepened bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had intense color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly due to its very soft, creamy texture. It lasted for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
