Benefit Pause for Applause Longwear Powder Eyeshadow

Benefit Pause for Applause Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft lilac.” It’s a lightened, pinked lilac with a satin finish (and it almost looks matte, but there’s a very fine shimmer to it). Urban Decay Heartless is lighter, more firmly in the pink-colored camp. NARS Bouthan #1 has a matte finish, so it’s a bit closer, but it is lighter and pinker.

Benefit Nude Swings Longwear Powder Eyeshadow

Benefit Nude Swings Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “rose gold.” It’s a warm beige with a hint of peach and a champagne sheen. I expect that it may look more like a rose gold, as listed, on those with pink undertones–against my warmer undertones, it loses the pink, but I do see a pink tinge to the color when I look at it in the pan. Cinderella Midnight Hour is less metallic and slightly pinker. L’Oreal Blinged & Brilliant is very similar but more metallic. MAC Naked Lunch is less metallic.

Urban Decay SWF Eyeshadow

Urban Decay SWF Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “pale cotton candy pink shimmer with silver micro-glitter.” It’s a pale, light-medium pink with a frosted finish and, supposedly, silver micro-glitter. NARS Bouthan is a matte version, and it runs a bit cooler. Urban Decay Heartless has a smoother finish and is slightly gray-tinged, but the two are similar–it was actually what prompted me to see if I could get my hands on SWF for comparison! Chanel Harmonie du Soir #4 is warmer. MAC Love Power is more metallic. bareMinerals Giddy is matte and yellower. Inglot #431 is more metallic in finish but similar in color (though the reflective sheen makes it appear somewhat lighter at certain angles).
