Lancome Dress-up Teal (401) Liner Design Long Wear Calligraphy Gel Eyeliner

Lancome Dress-up Teal (401) Liner Design Long Wear Calligraphy Gel Eyeliner ($24.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described simply as “turquoise.” It’s a very subtly green-tinted blue, less than what I’d envision teal being (which is a perfect–and hard to achieve–balance of blue and green). If you’re familiar with bluer turquoise gem stones, the color is reminiscent of those. There is a faint teal shimmer throughout. Urban Decay Flipside is a little more teal. It looks like it does in the pot, which is fairly blue, but the name says “teal,” so I was a bit disappointed to see it apply as more of a blue hue.

OCC Mimosa Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Mimosa Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz. / 2.5 grams) is described as a “orange with strong gold shimmer.” It’s a brightened light-medium orange with an orange-gold shimmer and sheen. Milani Primary is darker. Maybelline Fierce & Tangy is fairly similar, but because it doesn’t have a strong gold sheen, it appears a little darker, more yellow-toned. Chanel Tigerlily is a softer, lighter orange.

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo ($19.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold” and an “icy silver.”  Each eyeshadow is 0.13 oz., which is over double the average-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.), and the price point is very palatable for two shades.  A lot of the duos, though, are more basic than not, so whether any are must-haves depends on the size of your stash.
