Illamasqua Fatale Eyeshadow Palette
Illamasqua Fatale Eyeshadow Palette

Illamasqua Fatale Eyeshadow Palette ($46.50 for 0.20 oz.) includes four shades of warmer, shimmery colors that include copper, berry, purple, and taupe. The color scheme really works well together, and there are various combinations one can create with just the four shades included. There’s a good mix of shades that can contrast against each other. For those who prefer more satin or matte finishes, this palette may feel like frost-overload. It’s a good palette, but two shades could have been more pigmented.

Bronx is described as a “bronzed gold.” It’s a light-medium, warm-toned coppery ornage with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff, and the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours before fading. This is a shade that we’ve seen a lot, so there’s no shortage of dupes, but it’s a nice color to have in your arsenal if you don’t have it already. Makeup Geek Glamorous (P, $5.99) is darker, less shimery. Guerlain Crazy Paris #1 (LE) is more metallic, yellower. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #10 (P, $9.99) is more metallic. LORAC Gold (P) is very similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #4 (P) is slightly darker. MAC Amber Lights (P, $15.00) is brighter. Guerlain Calligraphy #2 (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Bragging Rights (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Ensnare is described as a “sultry berry shimmer.” It’s a brightened, pinky-berry with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, but it was a little dry and didn’t apply as smoothly as Bronx. This shade started to show signs of fading just after seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Pink Pepper (LE, $21.00) is glittery, lighter. MAC Caribbean (LE, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Daydreaming (LE, $15.00) is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Charm is described as a “seductive violet shimmer.” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium pink-violet with a soft, frosted sheen. It had decent color payoff, but it wasn’t quite as pigmented as you’d expect from Illamasqua’s formula. It wore well though and lasted a full eight hours. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #2 (P) is darker. NARS Rage (LE, $24.00) is darker. Kat Von D Babe (LE) is darker, cooler-toned. theBalm A2 (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Flash (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Mystify is described as a “chestnut brown.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned taupe brown with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff, and the texture was incredibly soft and silky-smooth. This shade wore well for eight hours before starting to show signs of fading. Maybelline Sleek & Spice (95) (LE, $6.99) is a cream product. Sleek MakeUP Paradise on Earth (P, $9.99) is lighter. Urban Decay Mugshot (P, $18.00) is very similar. Urban Decay Stray Dog (LE, $18.00) is darker. Giorgio Armani Fatal #1 (P) is less shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches.
