Estee Lauder Sinister Stay-On Shadow Paint ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is medium-dark black with silver sparkle. MAC Blackground has a warmer base and smaller shimmer. Urban Decay Oil Slick is also a bit warmer (and a powder product). Buxom Black Lab is similar but has multi-colored sparkle.

It had so-so color payoff; it is more easily applied as a sheer wash of color (so then it turns into a dark gray), and if you attempt to build up the color, it doesn’t work out so well. It tended to bunch up and layer in odd ways so that it didn’t give you a smooth, even result. The texture was smoother than Steel, but it had a very dry, almost flaky texture once it dried down. The color came off in chunks throughout the day. I tested it twice just to be sure, but it was the same: splotchy color, fall out, and then light creasing after eight hours.

Estee Lauder Extreme Emerald Shadow Paint

Estee Lauder Extreme Emerald Shadow Paint ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an emerald green with subtle cool undertones. On my warmer complexion, when it is sheered out, it almost looks warm-toned, but it’s really not. Milani Green Safari is very close, just slightly more frosted. MAC Feeling Fresh is warmer and lighter. MAC Fresh Flare is warmer. Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here is very close but a powder product.
