Makeup Geek Lemon Drop Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Lemon Drop Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Lemon Drop Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “shimmery bright lemon yellow.” It’s a bright pop of medium, sunshine yellow with a frosted, almost metallic, finish. It had really nice color payoff, and the texture was soft and buttery–a smidgen powdery. A little of this goes a long, long way on the eye! Fyrinnae Banana Mochi (P, $6.80) is lighter. It wore well for nine hours without fading or creasing. Sephora Collection Banana Split (05) (P, $13.00) is very similar. NARS Flowers 1 #5 (LE, $24.00) is less metallic. MAC Double Feature #1 #1 (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Bright Sunshine (P, $15.00) is a touch lighter. Make Up For Ever #24 (P, $23.00) is a cream product. Inglot #323 (P, $6.00) is matte. See comparison swatches.

Pixie Dust Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “shimmery lime green.” It’s a yellowed, chartreuse green with a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was soft, buttery, and smooth, while it had excellent pigmentation. It lasted just over eight and a half hours on me. Kat Von D Birdcage (LE) is greener. CoverGirl Lime Light (310) (LE, $4.99) is greener. NARS Rated R #1 (P, $24.00) is more matte, greener. MAC Double Feature #2 #1 (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Brilliantly Lit (LE, $18.50) is a cream product. See comparison swatches.

Appletini Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “shimmery apple green with flecks of gold.” It’s a medium-dark green with almost cool undertones and a warmer, muted gold sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, but the texture was on the more powdery side, so it sheered out somewhat when blended. It wore well for almost eight hours. Fyrinnae Dragon’s Wing (P, $6.80) is less golden. Fyrinnae Electric Stardust (P, $6.80) is lighter. MAC Wondergrass (LE, $15.00) is brighter. MAC Guacamole (LE, $15.00) is similar, not as shimmery. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Foxfire (P, $14.00) is more metallic, cooler-toned. Sugarpill Tipsy (P, $12.00) is brighter, more intense. See comparison swatches.

Shimmermint Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “metallic mint green with gold shimmer.” It’s a muted, pale meadow green with soft gold shimmer and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and blendable but slightly powdery. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Fyrinnae Electric Stardust (P, $6.80) is lighter. MAC Golden Olive (LE, $21.00) is a bit darker. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 (LE) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Wicked (P) is lighter. Make Up For Ever #34 (P, $20.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Poolside Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “bright shimmery teal with specks of gold.” It’s a bold, slightly aqua-leaning blue with fine sparkle. It’s listed as “specks of gold,” but it looked more silver to me. It had good pigmentation, though it is a shade that applies better over a base and patted on, because it was powdery. It was slightly faded at almost eight hours of wear. Disney by Sephora Blue Lagoon (LE) is similar. Sephora Collection Surfin’ USA (14) (P, $13.00) is brighter, more metallic. MAC Blue Calm (P, $15.00) is bluer, darker. MAC Parrot (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Peace (P, $18.00) is bluer, lighter. NARS South Pacific #1 (P, $24.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Yellow Brick Road Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “shimmery pale yellow.” It’s a more muted, paler yellow with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It’s a lot less intense and over-the-top compared to Lemon Drop, and it has a less metallic/frosted finish. The texture is soft but a touch powdery at times, but the color payoff was fairly good. It wore well for eight hours. Wet ‘n’ Wild A Regular at the Factory #1 (LE) is lighter, more matte. MAC Bright Yellow (P, $15.00) is matte, brighter. MAC Double Feature #1 #1 (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.
