MAC Aztec Brick Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “frosted true copper” with a Veluxe Pearl finish. It’s a rich copper with orange and brown undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #3 is similar. bareMinerals Bragging Rights is slightly lighter. Tarte Tuscan Sun is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy #1 is a touch darker.

This shade was part of a quad in 2010, and it was as lovely then and as it is lovely now. The pigmentation is intense and true-to-pan, and the texture is that soft, dense, buttery delight that Veluxe Pearls are supposed to be. It applied smoothly and evenly, and it blended beautifully with little work. I didn’t experience any fall out during application or wear, and the shade itself wore for eight hours with no fading or creasing (no primer) but showed a faint sign of creasing after nine. The only real downside is that it’s a color that is popular across brands, and many of the versions available are really quite good.  It reminded me of how I felt the day Veluxe Pearls launched, and I remember standing at the counter swatching them going, “ooh! ahh!”
