MAC Butterscotch Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte warm beige [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, muted yellow with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, finely-milled texture that was just a smidgen powdery. It wore well for eight hours before starting to fade. Bobbi Brown Banana (LE, $22.00) is yellower. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Diesel Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “cool grey frost [with a Frost finish].” It’s a medium-dark, neutral-to-cool-toned gray with a frosted finish. It had decent color payoff, but it felt a little dry and could have been more pigmented. Applied, it wore well for eight hours. Kat Von D Santeria (LE) is cooler-toned. Tarina Tarantino Silver Shoes (LE) is slightly darker. Makeup Geek Galaxy (P, $5.99) is similar. NARS Bad Behaviour (LE, $24.00) is more frosted. Urban Decay Redemption (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Deep Cravings (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Asphalt (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Nighttrain (LE, $15.00) is also similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Fiction Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “muted green with shimmer [with a Frost finish].” It’s a medium-dark, muted, olive green with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, but the texture was a little dry–it is better than the original I had, though. This shade wore well for almost eight hours before fading. theBalm #30 (P, $6.50) is darker. MAC In the Meadow #4 (LE, $21.00) is similar. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $18.00) is darker, greener. Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #1 (LE) is greener. Clinique Whopping Willow (P, $17.00) is a cream product. Urban Decay Mildew (P, $18.00) is brighter. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE) is brighter. bareMinerals Eureka (P) is darker. bareMinerals Speaker Box (LE) is slightly darker. Make Up For Ever #148 (P, $20.00) is less frosted.
