Anastasia Aubergine, Fudge, Henna, Intense Gaze, Party Dress Eyeshadows

Anastasia Aubergine Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a sprinkling of plum and purple sparkle over a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft, so it didn’t kick up excess product was still easy to use. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Anastasia Lace, Metal, Emerald, Peacock, Prussian Blue Eyeshadows

Anastasia Lace Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, yellowed beige with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thinner, drier consistency–this one was firm in the pan, which made it harder to use. It blends out nicely, but it tends to go on sheer. It lasted for seven hours on me. Kat Von D Laetus (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Natural (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Her Mistress (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Clarins The Essentials #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Solace (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Dior Blue Garden Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Blue Garden (031) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a mix of white, silver, gray, blue, and orange. The orange is an interesting addition (certainly makes it more unique), but whether that’s a good addition or not is quite subjective. I couldn’t find anything online that described this as a wet/dry formula, but it felt like that to me, so I did swatch it both dry (left) and damp (right) for your viewing pleasure. The ratings are based solely on performance dry, though, which was disappointing across the board.

Guerlain Blackjack & Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil

Guerlain Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new formula launching this spring, which will be available in five shades. I tried two of the five, which are reviewed below. The formula is supposed to be long-wearing, water-resistant, creamy, and pigmented. This pencil will need to be sharpened and includes one with the pencil. They’re an average eyeliner; not bad, not ground-breaking–the wear is decent but pigmentation could be better. The texture is a cross between creamy and waxy, so they glide well but still deposit even, smooth color without a lot of work.
