MAC Bloody Brilliant Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains three new, limited edition shades and one permanent shade. It’s from the upcoming MAC x Osbournes collaboration collection. Generally, the color payoff across the quad was semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but it’s a softer, subtler look overall. I think fairer complexions will get the most mileage out of this color combination, as there will be more contrast seen, but shades like Fizzy Rose and Tickety Boo get somewhat lost on a medium complexion like mine. I wish it was more true-to-pan in regards to the pigmentation, though the textures of the palette were okay and the shades lasted between seven and eight hours before fading.

Spoonful of Sugar is described as a “sparkling platinum [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a light silver with subtle warmth and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and the texture was mostly smooth, but it didn’t have the same buttery, creamy feel of other Veluxe Pearls. It wore well for seven hours on me. theBalm #31 (P, $6.50) is lighter. L’Oreal Silver Sky (757) (P, $7.99) is darker. MAC A Waft of Grey #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC A Party of Pastels #1 (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. MAC Platinum Love (LE, $19.50) is lighter, brighter. MAC Silver Screen (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Infini (P, $28.50) is a touch darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tickety Boo is described as a “soft muted plum brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, warm mauve with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and the texture was soft but a little powdery/dry in feel. It was easy to blend on the lid, though. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #3 (P) is warmer. Sleek MakeUP Forbidden (P, $9.99) is darker, cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose (LE, $22.00) is lighter. Chanel Quadrille #1 (LE) is darker, warmer. Urban Decay Nooner (P, $18.00) is slightly warmer. LORAC Mauve (P) is similar. Chanel Hasard (99) (P, $28.50) is a touch warmer. MAC Blackberry (P, $15.00) is darker, warmer. Illamasqua Forgiveness (LE) is darker, warmer. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #5 (LE) is slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fizzy Rose is described as a “pale lilac [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, subtly cool-toned pink-lavender with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, but the texture was soft and not stiff, so at least it was a more workable eyeshadow. It is best patted on, and if you use a base, even better, too maximize the color coverage. This shade lasted seven hours on me before significantly fading. Tom Ford Beauty Lavender Lust #1 (P) is cooler-toned, brighter. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #4 (LE) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Shadowy Lady is described as a “blackened plum [with a Matte finish].” It’s a dark, slightly muted, blackened burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. I can’t tell you how many versions I’ve tried of this shade–and it is part of the permanent line-up–and how it swatches every which way. Here, in this quad, it had semi-opaque color coverage, though it was somewhat dry, and I found it harder to blend on the lid–it tended to “stick” where it initially landed. It wears almost eight hours, though. theBalm #27 (P, $6.50) is very similar. theBalm Matt Batali (LE, $16.00) is richer. MAC Graphology (DC, $15.00) is darker, richer.
