Urban Decay Space Cowboy, Dark Force, Demolition Razorsharp Liquid Eyeliners

Urban Decay Space Cowboy 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a sparkly sheen. It had opaque coverage in one stroke, which was a total surprise, as it was a lighter and more shimmery shade–and those have not performed well overall! The texture was still more watery than not, but it applied easily and lasted for ten hours. Chanel Or Rose (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Mari(gold) (70) (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Brassy (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Goldrush (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Capital of Light (806) Skyline Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall. It features a blackened brown, light beige, pink, light brown, and dark plum with varying degrees of shimmer–satin to frost. For a Dior palette, it was better than anticipated, though it isn’t excellent, so I imagine for some the quality at this price point doesn’t make a compelling case. The five shades worked well together, and I can see several looks from this set of shades.

Urban Decay Retrograde, Galactic, Street, Zodiac Razorsharp Liquid Eyeliners

Urban Decay Retrograde 24/7 Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.07) is a blackened purple with lighter purple, pink, and blue shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage if I applied a second layer after the first one had dried down. (Trying to improve coverage while it is drying just moves the product around and creates an uneven, streaky result!) Once dry, the eyeliner stayed in place for the ten hours I wore it for. Zoeva Mr. Marvelous (P, $7.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Cute Robot (P, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Stila Purple Tang (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Th(ink) (44) (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Empire (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC Evil Twin (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Tarina Tarantino Amethyst Android (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC It’s a Strike Eyeshadows

MAC Gutter Gal Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “off-white grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a very light taupe with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very smooth, almost cream-like, and it yielded opaque color coverage. It was harder to apply evenly on the lid, as it tended to sheer out a bit once blended. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Anastasia Stone (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Come What Grey (LE) is darker, cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals Trench Coat (LE) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Pinch of Sage (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).
