MAC Styledriven Pro Longwear Eyeshadows Swatches, Photos, Reviews (Part 3)

MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to wear for eight hours with a “silky, creamy texture” that yields “maximum color impact.” It’s also designed to be blendable and buildable. As a reviewer, I am endlessly pleased that MAC gave definite wear times on these–it’s so much easier to assess whether the product was successful!

Giorgio Armani #3 Smooth Silk Eyeliner

It’s a gorgeous blackened navy blue with a hint of indigo in it. It could be more pigmented, because it takes a couple of passes to get solid, intense color; a single pass yields color but nothing opaque. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this, even after looking at all these navy blue eyeliners–it is much darker with less blue in it than many potential dupes.

bareMinerals Grand Finale Eyeshadow Duo

Debuting at the beginning of October, bareMinerals The Grand Finale Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is all starry night skies with Standing O and Climax. The new pressed eyeshadow formula has a SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that gives the shadow a “creamy, silky smooth” texture with “seamless blendability” and “stay-true color.” It’s supposed to be long-wearing whether worn alone or with primer–you shouldn’t see any creasing or fading. I’ve tested various combinations of shades from the duos and quads, and I’ve happily achieved ten hours of solid wear without a primer underneath. For a review of the packaging, please read my original review.
