Chanel Destination Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Destination Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pale-satin shade [that] adds a silver-blue accent to eyes.” It’s a subdued, silver-ish blue with a frosted, metallic finish. When sheered out, it’s almost more silver-white with just a hint of blue. MAC Bright Moon is darker, grayer. Buxom Husky is bluer and lighter–more sky blue. Urban Decay Strip is a bit darker. Urban Decay Mary Jane is also similar, a bit bluer–richer. Inglot #429 is more periwinkle.

Tarina Tarantino Tommy Jet Eye Dream Hyperliner

Tarina Tarantino Tommy Jet Eye Dream Hyperliner ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “deepest black.” I’d argue it’s a dark black, but it’s not the richest, darkest black eyeliner I’ve come across. It’s not soft, and it’s a bit darker than medium black. There is a whole host of other black eyeliners that are comparable; most notably MAC Black Black, MAC Smolder, and Bobbi Brown Black. I promise: updated eyeliner comparisons are on my to-do list!

Giorgio Armani #1 Easy Chic Face & Eye Palette

Giorgio Armani #1 Easy Chic Face & Eye Palette ($88.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a glossy black compact that features a light face powder to illuminate skin “with the signature ‘Armani Glow'” and three eyeshadows–two matte shades with “intense hues” and a satin-finished illuminator. This is one of two palettes released for fall; the second one seems to be a little warmer (from the descriptions, as I haven’t seen it).

Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo

Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as “peacock” and “gilded lime.”  I picked up several of Too Faced’s duos when they were on sale at HauteLook, and while they’re not quite as deeply discounted, they are on sale on Too Faced right now.

L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium yellowy gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It has a strong sunshine yellow coloring to it, so it’s warm, but it’s not orange. Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold is similar, less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is very similar. Bare Escentuals Aspire is a bit lighter. Urban Decay Blunt is close.
