Urban Decay Heartless Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Heartless Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Heartless Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Heartless Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “pale pink satin.” It’s a light-medium pink with a satiny finish and subtle, warm undertones. NARS Bouthan #1 is lighter and matte. MAC Love Power is darker and metallic. bareMinerals Giddy is matte and a touch warmer. Urban Decay SWF is pinker and more frosted/metallic.

It’s a new (and permanent!) shade that launches on February 1st at Urban Decay as well as in Sephora in JCP stores.  It had good color payoff, and there’s enough color that it doesn’t look chalky against my medium skin tone, so it should be appropriate as a lighter pink for a variety of skin tones.  The texture was soft, finely-milled, but it was very slightly powdery. The softness gave it a nice, blendable texture during application, though. When I test-drove it for wear, it lasted eight hours well, and it was just slightly faded after nine hours (no primer).

Rimmel #111 (Kiss of Life) Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

Rimmel #111 (Kiss of Life) Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

Rimmel #111 (Kiss of Life) Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss ($5.49 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, warm, orange-toned red with a matte finish. Chanel Coromandel is more orange. Guerlain Callipgrahy Eye & Lip Palette #6 is very similar. Guerlain Genna is a bit more orange. CoverGirl Hot is less orange.

It has mostly opaque color coverage (you can see just a shadow of my lip freckle coming through), and of the three shades I picked up of this formula, this one was the best-performing and had the better texture, though it was still a little off to me. The scent of this was very waxy, while the others had a kind of fruity scent. It was creamy enough to apply, but not so creamy that it was prone to bleeding or feathering while worn or that it would slip around. This shade wore for five and a half hours, and then it left behind a stain, so while I did experience a slight ring of color on the outer portion of my lips, it wasn’t as noticeable because of the residual stain.

I only bought three shades of this formula, but because there’s an odd graininess in the formula and an uncomfortable feel on the lips, I don’t anticipate buying more for review.  At the price point, if a shade catches your eye, it may be worth trying, and you do get more than the average lipstick (0.14 oz.).  The graininess combined with the drying formula is such a shame, because the shade range, thus far, has been spectacular.

Rimmel #103 Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

Rimmel #103 Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

Rimmel #103 Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss ($5.49 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm, medium-dark pink with a creamy, matte finish. MAC Sunny Seoul is a bit warmer and shimmery. MAC Pink Pearl Pop is closer, but it is also shimmery. Le Metier de Beaute Fiji is a touch lighter.

It is incredibly pigmented, and it has even, opaque color coverage when initially applied. I wish I could say the texture was different from #107, but this shade had an odd graininess to the texture that made it not-quite-comfortable to wear. It has enough creaminess that you can apply the color to the lips in full, but it feels like it’s just sitting on lips as a layer of product. As it fades away, it fades from the center first, leaving behind a ring of color along the outer edges of the lips. #103 lasted five hours, and it was somewhat dehydrating during that time. On the upside, it contains 0.14 oz. of product, which is more than most lipsticks. I grabbed mine from Walgreens, but I haven’t seen them online yet.

MAC Vintage Selection Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Vintage Selection Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Vintage Selection Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted dirty peach.” It’s a subtly, warm-toned, lightened brown with a slightly frosted, champagne sheen. Make Up For Ever #13 is less warm-toned. Benefit RSVP is also similar. bareMinerals Libation is very similar but a powder product.

Of the seven shades (Let Me Pop! wasn’t available for purchase when I bought these, but since there wasn’t a noticeable difference between these and when they originally debuted, you can see a swatch here), Vintage Selection was by far the best performer. It was nicely pigmented, incredibly blendable, and applied beautifully–smoothly, evenly, and wore all day long without fading or creasing. This is the kind of consistency and quality that made Paint Pots my go-to base for years (and more to the point, what made them so popular when they originally debuted).  It’s creamy with just the right amount of slip to make for quick and easy blending and application, but it still dries down and sets without ever gathering in the creases.

FYI: the ingredient list for the Pro Longwear Paint Pots is the same as for the regular Paint Pots when I compared against the list for Bare Study/Constructivist! It’s off by one ingredient when compared to the Paint Pots from Posh Paradise.

MAC Let’s Skate Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Let’s Skate Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Let’s Skate Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “pale pink with pearl.” It’s a soft, pale pink with a gold shimmer-sheen. The closest dupe I could think of was bareMinerals Glitterati which has a similar pale pink base with a golden sheen, but it is a powder product and is more metallic in finish.

This shade had really great pigmentation–it was fully opaque on the lid, and it didn’t need to be built up in endless layers either. It wasn’t the most flattering when it dried down on my lid, but from a normal viewing distance, it didn’t create noticeable crepiness. I didn’t experience any fall out with this shade, which was definitely a happy surprise! It had a creamy, blendable consistency that dried down just slightly longer than a cream/matte Paint Pot but not so long that it had time to gather in the creases and settle there. After twelve hours, there were no signs of creasing or fading.

FYI: the ingredient list for the Pro Longwear Paint Pots is the same as for the regular Paint Pots when I compared against the list for Bare Study/Constructivist! It’s off by one ingredient when compared to the Paint Pots from Posh Paradise.

MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot
MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted purple silver.” It is a mauve-brown with silver sparkle. MAC Dangerous Cuvee is cooler-toned, grayer. Tarte Amazed by Amethyst is a bit darker and less sparkly, plus it is a powder product. MAC Shale is browner and a powder product.

Frozen Violet applied more smoothly and evenly than a few of the other shades, though it was only semi-opaque. I did have to build up the color in really thin, sheer layers, because it would easily clump together if I tried to apply a thicker layer. I noticed a few stray bits of silver sparkle, but it was minor. It wore for twelve hours without fading or creasing. So long as you don’t mind some sheerness to the color, I think this one is worth a look.

FYI: the ingredient list for the Pro Longwear Paint Pots is the same as for the regular Paint Pots when I compared against the list for Bare Study/Constructivist! It’s off by one ingredient when compared to the Paint Pots from Posh Paradise.
