MAC A Harvest of Greens Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a warm-toned quad with earthy shades. It contains a medium brown, olive brown, olive green, and a medium-dark brown. The darkest brown shade was most troublesome, as the texture was drier and stiffer, which resulted in poorer color payoff even when applied damp, and then it was difficult to blend out. The olive brown had similar issues but to a lesser degree, so it was more workable. The olive green was the easiest shade to work with. The medium brown and olive green shades wore well for almost eight hours on me, while the olive brown had some fading after seven hours and the dark brown was noticeably faded after six hours of wear.

A Harvest of Greens #1 is a muted, beige-shimmered orange-toned brown with a frosted, metallic finish. Applied dry, it was sheer and frosted, and applied damp, it was mostly opaque and metallic. This shade was noticeably powdery when used dry. Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $28.00) is darker, browner. MAC Her Cocoa #3 (LE, $15.00) is browner. CoverGirl Melted Caramel (330) (P, $4.99) is less metallic. Clinique Ample Amber (P, $16.00) is a cream product, less metallic. MAC Tan (LE, $21.00) is similar but a little rosier. Make Up For Ever #28E (P, $20.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches.

A Harvest of Greens #2 is a khaki brown with a hint of olive green and a pearly sheen. It had sheer, slightly uneven, color payoff when applied dry–working with it dry, it seemed a little stiff–and then applied with a fairly dampened brush, it was smoother and more opaque. Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #3 (LE) is darker. Make Up For Ever #148 (P, $20.00) is greener, less brown. MAC Soba (P, $15.00) is browner. Dior Golden Savannah #1 (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches.

A Harvest of Greens #3 is an olive green with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. Applied dry, it was semi-opaque, and applied damp, it was fully opaque. The texture was fairly soft and smooth for both applications. Makeup Geek Kryptonite (P, $6.99) is greener, darker. Clinique Whopping Willow (P, $16.00) is a cream product, darker. Urban Decay Jealous #1 (LE, $18.00) is greener. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE) is also greener. bareMinerals Eureka (P) is darker, greener. Makeup Geek Liquid Gold (P, $6.99) is more golden, yellower. Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed (P, $6.80) is lighter. Sugarpill Goldilux (P, $12.00) is yellower. See comparison swatches.

A Harvest of Greens #4 is a medium-dark brown with subtle warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture of this one was drier and stiffer–it was harder to blend and even out on the skin. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was semi-opaque, but the damp application made it even harder to blend. This one also faded noticeably after six hours of wear, which was faster than the other shades. Makeup Geek Bada-Bing (P, $5.99) is darker. Urban Decay Factory (P, $18.00) is rosier. Too Faced Chestnut (LE) is warmer. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is darker, rosier. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is a cream product. MAC Buckwheat (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. MAC Havana (LE, $19.50) is darker. Dior Fairy Golds #5 (LE) is rosier. See comparison swatches.
