Chanel Les Sautoirs de Coco Glossimers

Chanel Pinctada (214) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a fine dusting of lighter pink shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, while the Glossimer formula is one of those that has pigmentation from sheer to opaque (hard to know what was intended, unfortunately, on a shade-by-shade basis). The texture was lightweight and comfortable to wear, though it did not apply as evenly as one would want. It wore well for four and a half hours. Chanel Babiole (215) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Savage (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 207 Candy Pink (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Eleven (Watercolor) (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Vibrant Vibe (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Hollywood (688) (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Unlimited Style (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Rosy Future (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Scandal (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Collection Glossy Pink (16) (P, $14.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Opalescent Orchid (515) (P, $8.99) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Love Buzz (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). NYX Funnel Delight (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Surratt Beauty Mesmer Eyes Prismatique Eyes

The following was previously written for my first review on this formula, as all three I tried were very consistent in performance: Surratt Beauty Prismatique Eyes ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a two-part compact that twists to reveal a glittery, more powder-like eyeshadow on the lower level, and then on the upper level, the lid twists off and reveals a cream eyeshadow. The brand states that the cream eyeshadow is a long-wearing, “water-proof shadow base” that can be used underneath the glittery eyeshadow or as an eyeliner. The glittery eyeshadow is called a “prismatic top coat.” The two only work well when used together, but neither works that well alone. Together, they’re pretty, but the cream eyeshadow is fussier than ideal for a cream-based product, so blending and getting even coverage were quite challenging.

Tom Ford Last Dance Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Last Dance Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a mix of gold, green, and a pop of glittering blue. Overall, all four shades had good or better color payoff, wore for eight hours (the glitter shade had fall out), and were easy enough to use. I wish the two more satin-like shades had a slightly less dusty consistency.

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of orange-y coral shades with matte finishes. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The darker shade lacked pigmentation and had a really firm consistency that made it hard to apply and blend out evenly on the skin. The lighter shade was more pigmented and more blendable, though it was dusty to work with. The two together are more blendable than the dark shade alone, but on my skin tone, it is difficult for the two together to show up noticeably as there is little coverage overall (paired with a lighter color in general, there’s little hope if it’s very sheer!), but I would expect some color to show up on fairer skin tones when mixed — the lighter shade will dominate.

Tom Ford Disco Dust Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Disco Dust Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a mix of mid-tone neutrals with warmer undertones. There are two satins, one shimmer, and one glitter shade in the palette. The glitter shade was the most troublesome in the palette, as it had fall out while worn and a tendency to sheer out; I also found it harder to blend with the other shades as it had a denser consistency.
