MAC All About Nude Look in a Box
MAC All About Nude Look in a Box

MAC All About Nude Look in a Box ($39.50) includes a full-sized lipstick, full-sized lipgloss, full-sized eyeliner, and a Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow trio (0.07 oz.). The lipstick and gloss are worth $31, eyeshadows are worth $20 (based on price per ounce of the full-sized Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palettes), and the eyeliner is worth $16 for a total value of $67 (not sure where they get $72 MAC and Nordstrom confirm it is $72 value as they are stating the value of the Veluxe Pearlfusion Trio at $25).  I will review the other kits as well — please give me time as there is a lot to test!

Soft Savour Lipstick is described as a “mid-tone beigey pink [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium, warm-toned pink with a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage, wore for three hours, and was neither drying nor hydrating on me. YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is similar. NYX Chic (P, $4.00) is warmer. MAC Giddy (P, $16.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Feeling Fine Lipglass is described as a “soft beigey pink with pearl.” It’s a light pink with gold and silver sparkle. It had sheer–almost no color–coverage when applied to lips, and the effect was mostly sparkly and glossy. It wears for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Lovingly Yours (P, $22.00) is less sparkly, more pigmented. Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is lighter. NARS Bimini (P, $26.00) has finer shimmer. MAC Steel Kiss (LE, $15.00) has finer shimmer. MAC Oh My Darling (LE, $15.00) has finer shimmer. Dior No Angel (353) (P, $29.50) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cool Companions #1 is described as a “gold.” It’s a muted, almost green-tinged gold with a metallic, sparkling finish. It was sheer when applied dry, and then it was slightly more opaque when applied with a dampened brush but it was somewhat clumpy. It was a finicky shade to work with, and I had noticeable fall out when wearing this, though the color portion didn’t fade or crease for eight hours. MAC In the Meadow #2 (LE, $21.00) is less sparkly. Dior Pastel Fontanges #3 (LE) is lighter. Dior Golden Flower #3 (LE) is similar. MAC Gilty Morsel (LE, $15.00) is less sparkly. MAC Greenluxe #2 (P) is similar.Dior Khaki Design #2 (P) is darker. Make Up For Ever #101 (P, $20.00) is less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cool Companions #2 is described as a “forest green.” It’s a medium-dark green with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had so-so pigmentation applied dry, and it was semi-opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. YSL Avant Garde #1 (P) is darker. MAC Silver Sun (LE, $19.50) is cooler-toned. Sleek MakeUP Fauna (P, $9.99) is cooler-toned. Ulta Sage (P, $10.00) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #2 (P) is darker, less shimmery. Kat Von D Gunner (LE) is less shimmery. MAC Greensmoke (P, $15.00) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cool Companions #3 is described as a “black.” It’s a medium-dark black with subtle warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. Applied dry, it had semi-opaque color coverage, and it was more opaque and much more intense when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft and smooth, and the color stayed on well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Graphblack Technakohl is a black, twist-up pencil eyeliner, which I’ve reviewed several times in the past (it is also part of the permanent range).

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals. It is very reminiscent of Chanel Raffinement, though they’re not exactly the same, they are certainly similar. All four shades wore well for just over nine hours and after, there was very, very slight creasing (no primer). The texture is soft, smooth, and they eyeshadows are incredibly blendable. The only downside is that the baked formula is a very lightweight one, so the quad only contains 0.07 oz., when many single powder eyeshadows are 0.05 oz. on average. Visually, they don’t seem particularly small, and it is often the case with baked products that they weigh less than traditional powders, but it’s hard to say if it contains as many uses as the regular quads.

Tisse Rivoli #1 is described as a “golden taupe.” It’s a dark taupe with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had really good color payoff, and the texture was soft, smooth, and silky. This shade wore well for nine and a half hours on me before showing slight creasing. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is warmer. MAC Soul Serenade (LE, $19.50) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Silver Dawn (LE, $19.50) is warmer. Anastasia Antique (LE) is cooler-toned. Illamasqua Acute (P) is a cream product. MAC Supersweet #1 (LE, $21.00) is similar. MAC Street Cool (LE) is a cream product. MAC Twilight Falls (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. Chanel Raffinement #1 (P) is warmer. bareMinerals A-Ha (P) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Rivoli #2 is described as a “light rose beige.” It’s a gold-shimmered, light beige with warm undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the texture was still very soft and silky. This shade didn’t show signs of creasing until after nine and a half hours of wear. MAC Fabulous Three #1 (LE) is lighter. YSL Saharienne #1 (P) is less shimmery. LORAC Beige (P) is less shimmery. Too Faced Riviera (P, $16.00) is similar. Chanel Jardin Zen #2 (LE) is more pearly. theBalm #18 (P, $6.50) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Elektron (P) is darker. Chanel Quadrille #2 (LE) is warmer. MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE) is similar. MAC Exquisite Ego #1 (LE, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Rivoli #3 is described as a “rose-gold beige.” It’s a medium brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had excellent color payoff, and it applied smoothly and evenly to the skin. When I tested it, the color wore well for nine and a half hours. LORAC Mocha (P) is darker. NARS Iraklion (P, $24.00) is a cream product. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #2 (P) is darker. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Makeup Geek Homecoming (P, $5.99) is slightly yellower. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P, $23.00) is similar. Disney by Sephora Sultana (LE) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Les Poissons (LE) is similar. Urban Decay YDK (LE, $18.00) is more metallic. MAC Caramel Sundae (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Rivoli #4 is described as a “red brown.” It’s a dark brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation, while the texture was blendable and smooth to the touch. It lasted for nine hours before starting to fade. bareMinerals Toasted Espresso (LE, $14.00) is similar. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is warmer. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.00) is a cream product. MAC Havana (LE, $19.50) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC All About Pink Look in a Box
MAC All About Pink Look in a Box

MAC All About Pink Look in a Box ($39.50) includes a full-sized lipstick, full-sized lipgloss, full-sized eyeliner, and a Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow trio (0.07 oz.). The lipstick and gloss are worth $31, eyeshadows are worth $20 (based on price per ounce of the full-sized Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palettes), and the eyeliner is worth $16 for a total value of $67 (not sure where they get $72 MAC and Nordstrom confirm it is $72 value as they are stating the value of the Veluxe Pearlfusion Trio at $25).  I will review the other kits as well — please give me time as there is a lot to test!

Embrace Me Lipstick is a brightened, cool-toned fuchsia pink with a matte finish. This shade was released before, but when I compared the two, the version included in this set has a bluer undertone and appears a bit lighter, which gives it a brighter overall look. It lasted for six hours and was lightly drying when worn. It had rich, opaque color coverage and didn’t tug too much at the lips when applied. Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is brighter. Melt Cosmetics Shady Lady (P, $19.00) is darker. MAC Quick Sizzle (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is brighter, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Unlimited Style Lipglass is a medium, blue-based pink with fuchsia and silver sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and some of the color did pull into lip lines but the opacity helped camouflage some of it. It had a slightly thick consistency and wore for four and a half hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating. NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is sheerer. Urban Decay Crush (P, $19.00) is cooler-toned, less glossy, less sparkly. Milani Flashy (P, $7.49) is more shimmery. MAC Style Packed (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Silly (LE, $15.00) is lighter, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fabulous Three #1 is described as a “soft beige.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed beige with a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied both wet and dry, though it was smoother when applied with a dampened brush. The color stayed true for eight hours before fading. YSL Saharienne #1 (P) is less shimmery. Too Faced Riviera (P, $16.00) is similar. Kat Von D Galore (LE) is lighter. MAC Ricepaper (P, $15.00) is yellower. MAC Femme-Fi (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Halo (P, $24.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fabulous Three #2 is described as a “frosted peach.” It’s a metallic champagne beige with a high-shine finish and sparkle. This shade had good color payoff both wet and dry, though it was slightly darker when applied with a dampened brush. I didn’t notice any fading until after eight hours of wear, but there was some fall out. Marc Jacobs Beauty Honey Bunny (400) (P, $28.00) is a cream product. Divergent Humble Sheen (LE) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Delightful #4 (P) is similar. bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE) is warmer. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is similar. MAC Summer Honey (LE, $21.00) is more glittery. Milani Champagne Toast (P, $6.49) is a cream product. MAC Ice (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Benefit RSVP (P, $10.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fabulous Three #3 is described as a “burgundy.” It’s a medium-dark purpled burgundy with a satin finish. It had good coverage applied dry, but it appeared darker and more intense when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft and fairly smooth without being powdery. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading. Kat Von D Wonderland (LE) is more shimmery, darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #7 (P) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #4 (LE) is darker. Burberry Mulberry (24) (P) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Photogravure Technakohl is a dark brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. I’ve reviewed it previously here. It had decent to good color payoff and wears for eight hours on me.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Honey Bunny (400) Twinkle Pop Eye Stick
Marc Jacobs Beauty Honey Bunny (400) Twinkle Pop Eye Stick

Marc Jacobs Beauty Twinkle Pop Eye Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a new, pencil eyeshadow formula for fall. It’s described as a “shimmering cream eyeshadow formula” that “glides on smooth in one swipe for instant buildable coverage.” The consistency is thin, cool, and almost like water when it touches the skin. It glides on very easily without skipping or tugging on the lid. Both of these shades lasted for nine hours without creasing or fading, though there was a smidgen of sparkle fall out. I can see this formula working for someone who’s looking for shimmer and sparkle with minimal work, who may only want to use one or two colors at a time. I think the lighter shades would be great for an all-over brightening look and off you go, but they’re best used one or two at a time as they don’t blend too well with each other as they set quickly. I found this formula to have a very similar look and feel to Chanel’s Stylo Eyeshadow.

Full disclosure: I tried these on my lower lash line, and I had the most searing pain in my eye; I couldn’t even wait to grab a cotton pad to remove it (I couldn’t keep my eye open long enough to find one), so I just splashed my eyes with water and all of the eyeshadow washed away and my eyes instantly felt better. I had only applied it as an eyeliner to the lower lash line (but not the water line) on one eye, but once one eye started blinking and watering, the other one did (causing the eyeshadow on the lid to move), and then both were excruciatingly painful. I don’t know that I’ve ever had a beauty product give me such a vicious, instant reaction. Wearing them purely as an eyeshadow on the eyelid didn’t result in any painful reactions, and when I removed them with a cleansing oil, nothing was amiss either.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Honey Bunny (400) Twinkle Pop Eye Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “ballet pink shimmer.” It’s a champagne peach with a frosted, sparkling finish. It was semi-opaque in a single stroke and buildable to just shy of full coverage with two to three layers. Make Up For Ever S-52 (P, $21.00) is lighter. Divergent Humble Sheen (LE) is powder. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #1 (P) is a powder. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is a powder. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #2 (P) is lighter, powder. Urban Decay Sin (P, $20.00) is similar. Milani Champagne Toast (P, $6.49) is warmer, more metallic. MAC Ice (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Benefit RSVP (P, $10.00) is more metallic. Make Up For Ever #30E (P, $20.00) is a touch darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Leila (416) Twinkle Pop Eye Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “rose copper shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish copper with a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied in one stroke, and it was buildable to opaque color coverage with two layers. MAC Sexy Eyes (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more orange. MAC Gingersnap (P, $15.00) is powder. Urban Decay Trick (P, $18.00) is browner, powder. NARS Cambodia (LE, $24.00) is redder, powder. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #3 (P, $9.99) is darker, powder. MAC Magnetic Attraction (LE, $21.00) is darker, powder. MAC Red Hot Copper (LE) is darker. MAC Coppering (P, $15.00) is darker, powder. Le Metier de Beaute Innocence (DC, $30.00) is darker, powder.

NARS Smokey Eye Kit
NARS Smokey Eye Kit

NARS Smokey Eye Kit ($59.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a limited edition kit for fall. Each eyeshadow is 0.04 oz., and the eyeliner is 0.01 oz. It also comes with a travel-sized contour brush. First, if you purchased NARS’ NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette last spring, then you already have the three shades featured in this kit. On the upside, Bali performed much better in this palette than in the larger one.

In order for this to be a decent offering in terms of pricing, you have to get some use out of the included brush, which NARS prices at $32 for the full-sized version (the travel-sized feels like a cheap, rougher, scratchier, less dense version of the full-sized), and the eyeliner. Otherwise, I feel like you’re really paying for convenience to have these specific shades in a single palette; the larger NARSissist palette contains 0.45 oz. of product for $79 (which works out to be $176/oz.). NARS’ single eyeshadows retail for $25/0.07 oz. and $35/0.14 oz. (duos), which puts the price per ounce somewhere between $250 (duos) to $357 (singles). NARS’ Larger Than Life Eyeliner retails for $24/0.02 oz. (or $1200/oz.), so you’re getting a $12 value in this palette from the pencil alone. If you’re only interested in the eyeshadows, you’re paying $492/oz. All in, you’re getting about $30 (taking the PPO of duos) worth of eyeshadow, $12 worth of eyeliner, and a $32 brush (though I would disagree at this value, as the quality is vastly different from the full-sized), which would be $74. There’s value in having your very favorite shades in a palette for easy access and making it travel-ready, but I feel that this is poorly priced relative to other palettes NARS has done, which is disappointing.

Madrague #1 is described as a “matte cream.” This shade was of good quality in both the larger NARSissist palette as well as in this one, as it was soft, finely-milled, and blendable. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before fading. It’s a more common shade, so there are many, many shades available that are quite close. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bali is described as a “neutral.” It’s a dark, subtly cool-toned brown with a hint of gray and a matte finish. It is much, much better quality in this palette than in the larger palette; here, it is soft, finely-milled, and blendable. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Tarte Dream in Chocolate (LE) Too Faced Triple Fudge (P, $16.00) Laura Mercier Espresso (LE, $23.00) Too Faced Dark Chocolate (LE, $16.00) Tom Ford Beauty She Wolf #1 (LE) bareMinerals Boardroom (LE) NARS Bali (P, $24.00) MAC Najm el Lail (LE, $15.00) MAC Dance in the Dark (P, $15.00) MAC Showstopper (LE, $15.00) MAC Diamond Dove (LE, $15.00) Inglot #363 (P, $6.00) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Mekong is described as an “espresso infused with shimmer.” It’s a dark, subtly warm-toned brown with fine sparkle over a matte finish. It was richly pigmented, and the texture felt soft and smooth, but it could have been more blendable. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Midnight Hour (LE, $15.00) is less sparkly. MAC Beluga (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. Disney by Sephora Cinders (LE) is similar. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #4 (LE) is less sparkly. Dior Night Golds #3 (LE) is lighter. Chanel Topkapi #3 (LE) is less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Via Veneto is described as a “black.” It’s just that–a matte black. I have reviewed it previously here. It has good color payoff, but it is a stiffer eyeliner to use, so I don’t find it as comfortable to apply. It wears about seven to eight hours on my lower lash line before smudging. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Wide Contour Brush #43 is short-handled, angled eye brush. It has a very sharp, flat angled shape, but the brush is incredibly large. Of all the brushes to provide in a Smokey Eye Kit, it’s hard to imagine how many people will get a lot of use out of it. The only way I could feasibly use it was to finish up any blending all-over the lid, but I felt like this over-blended due to the scratchier, rougher bristles and over-sized shape.

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette
Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette ($34.00 for 4 x 0.06 oz.) is designed to help you recreate the look Mia Wallace’s look from the movie. Urban Decay says there are three new shades (so two are repromotes), but these were all new to me (at least, by these names). When I first saw the palette, it reminded me of Naked Basics, and there is overlap. Righteous is closest to Foxy, though it is lighter and brighter than Foxy. None seemed similar to Tyranny. Vengeance is darker and more shimmery, with a stronger red tone (versus yellow) than Faint. Furious is very similar to Venus, though Venus’ texture is quite different. Anger is more shimmery, less warm-toned compared to Crave. They are similar enough, however, that if you rarely use the Naked Basics palette, I’m not sure that this one would be much more useful. The Pulp FIction palette leans warmer overall. I found the eyeshadows to be very blendable, easy to use, and fairly pigmented across the board. I wish the palette itself was more compact, because then it would be travel-friendly, and though the colors are dupable, they work well together for a mostly matte neutral eye.

Righteous is described as a “light cream matte.” It’s a very light and bright, yellow-toned beige with a matte finish. It had a very soft, finely-milled texture, but it was powdery, and it had decent to good pigmentation. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Too Faced Meow (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Pacific Sands (LE) is darker. Too Faced Rockabilly (P, $16.00) is similar. Kat Von D Lifelike (P) is less warm-toned. Laura Mercier Buttercream (P, $23.00) is similar. Urban Decay Bleach (LE, $18.00) is a touch darker. Urban Decay Foxy (P, $18.00) is darker. MAC Vanilla (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Blanc Type (P, $15.00) is less yellow. Inglot #353 (P, $6.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tyranny is described as a “warm brown matte.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft without being powdery. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before I saw signs of fading. LORAC Unspoken (P) is darker. MAC Rose Cloud (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Glasswing (P) is lighter. Makeup Geek Latte (P, $5.99) is similar. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is more shimmery. Makeup Geek Creme Brulee (P, $5.99) is lighter. Urban Decay Beware (LE, $18.00) is very similar–a touch darker at most. Inglot #357 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Vengeance is described as a “deep taupe-brown matte-satin.” It’s a medium-dark brown with soft, warm undertones and a satin shimmer. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, dense, and buttery while being extremely easy to apply. On me, the color wore well for eight and a half hours before it started to fade along the edges. YSL Saharienne #3 (P) is cooler-toned, more shimmery. Givenchy Taupe Velours (5) (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, cream. Divergent Bold Espresso (LE) is similar. Makeup Geek Bada-Bing (P, $5.99) is darker. Urban Decay Twice Baked (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer. Dior Fairy Golds #5 (LE) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Furious is described as a “white satin.” It’s a warm, bright white with subtle yellow tint and a pearly sheen. It was slightly powdery, and though it had decent pigmentation, it could have been more opaque. I didn’t notice it start to fade until after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Purr (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. Milani Bella Ivory (01) (P, $3.99) is similar. Chanel Quadrille #2 (LE) is a touch darker. MAC This or That #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Venus (P, $18.00) is very similar. MAC Mylar (P, $15.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Anger is described as a “black satin with slight tonal sparkle.” It’s a dark black with a satiny sheen. It had so-so colorpayoff, due to its slightly dry, powdery texture. It wasn’t as blendable as I expected, and when you have a richer black eyeshadow like this, it’s important to have that blendability. On me, the color stayed true for eight and a half hours before fading. NARS Sycorax (P, $29.00) is more shimmery. Anastasia Black Diamond (LE) is warmer. Urban Decay Lovesick (LE, $18.00) has more sparkle. MAC Fashion Legend (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Lights Down (P) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
