Makeup Geek Mermaid Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Mermaid Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Mercury Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “metallic medium silver.” It’s a medium-dark, gray-ish silver with cool undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish. The consistency was soft but noticeably powdery, so it had a tendency to sheer out some when blended on the skin. I recommend patting the color on to minimize fall out during application as well as sheering out, then blend along the edges to soften. It wore well on me for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading. Fyrinnae Frostbytes (P, $6.80) is darker. Giorgio Armani Silver Chafer (35) (LE, $33.00) is lighter.MAC Tundra (LE) is a cream product. MAC Warm Thunder (LE, $19.50) is darker. MAC Evening Grey (LE, $19.50) is similar. Giorgio Armani #17 (LE, $33.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Mermaid Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “metallic teal with reflects gold.” It’s a medium blue with iridescent green-tinged gold shimmer and a frosted finish. It had fairly good color payoff, but it could have been more pigmented. The texture was soft and easy to blend on the lid, but it was slightly powdery. When I tested it, the color wore well for almost eight hours before starting to fade. Kat Von D 8 Bit (LE) is darker, less blue. NARS Bavaria (P, $24.00) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Diamond Sky (LE) is brighter. Disney by Sephora Caspian Sea (LE) is brighter. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen (LE, $16.00) is very similar. MAC Parrot (LE, $15.00) is a bit brighter. L’Oreal Endless Sea (P, $7.99) is lighter, more muted. See comparison swatches.

Mocha Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “deep matte brown.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-toned brown with a matte finish. I had a lot of trouble working with this one; it was incredibly powdery and very sheer–it was more like a wash of brown that looked lighter and lighter applied than it did in the pan. When applied to the lid, it lasted about six hours but was noticeably faded from there. Too Faced Semi-Sweet (P) is not as warm-toned. Laura Mercier Truffle (P) is similar in color. Kat Von D Wolf (P) is darker. MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $15.00) is similar in color, slightly darker. Make Up For Ever #17 (P, $20.00) is also similar. Inglot #327 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.
