NARS Goldfinger Eyeshadow

NARS Goldfinger Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “24 karat gold shimmer.” It’s a pop of yellow gold with a metallic sheen. The texture is soft and smooth, which is exactly what you want with a metallic finish, so it really retains its reflective nature. MAC Goldmine is much darker, while Urban Decay Eldorado is very similar but the quality of Goldfinger is much, much better. Inglot #403 is similar but a touch darker. Make Up For Ever #10 is pretty close but a little more orange-based.

Make Up For Ever #2 Aqua Cream

I’m a big fan of Aqua Creams, because they really stay on well. The formula is all about bringing “rich color payoff” with long-lasting wear that does not crease or smudge. These have creamy consistency that applies easily and smoothes out beautifully, but they do have a quicker dry down time–and once they set, they’re set for the rest of the day. I’ve worn numerous shades since they originally launched, and I’m never disappointed. The wear is truly phenomenal!

bareMinerals Epiphany Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Epiphany Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: A-Ha and Foreshadow. This duo launches in October, and it’s touted as a solid eyeshadow with SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that is “creamy, silky smooth” with “seamless blendability” and “stay-true color” that is long-wearing when worn alone without creasing or budging. When worn alone (without an eyeshadow primer), the new pressed eyeshadows wear around ten hours. For more details on packaging, please read my original review.

theBalm Cast Your Shadow Face Palette (Part 1)

theBalm Cast Your Shadow Face Palette ($44.50) includes 16 eyeshadows (1.0 oz. total), two lip/cheek stains (0.14 oz. total), and one lip gloss (0.07 oz.) and is a palette designed with The Muppets in mind. It is a limited edition palette to-be-related (late September/early October) and only 1,000 will be available (each one is numbered). The approximate value of this palette is $160.00 worth of eyeshadows, $17.00 worth of lip/cheek stains (I didn’t see a really comparable product, so I went with the value of lipsticks, since these can be used as lip stains!), and $7.00 worth of lipgloss–at the very least, this palette is worth $170+ with some uncertainty as to total value because of the lip/cheek stains (totally different formula compared to Stainiac).
