Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow

Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with just a hint of gray and a high-frost finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, creamy, and extremely blendable. It wore well for nine hours on me. Ardency Inn Rose Gold (P, $21.00) is more mauve. Makeup Geek Night Life (P, $6.99) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #3 (LE) is a touch lighter. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #1 (P) is darker, cooler-toned. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is less shimmery, cooler-toned. Ulta Taupe (P, $10.00) is less shimmery. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P, $23.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Shakedown (LE, $18.00) is less frosted. Urban Decay Lost (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever M842 Wine Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, muted berry with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a silky, finely-milled texture that was slightly powdery. Of all of Make Up For Ever’s finishes, the mattes feel the most like your traditional powder eyeshadow and the most like their original formula (but I think their mattes are smoother and silkier). Wine has some trouble adhering to bare skin, though plenty of pigment lifts off the surface–it just doesn’t stick. On me, it wears seven and a half hours before looking slightly faded. Sleek MakeUP Valley of Diamonds (LE, $9.99) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Honeymoon in Hollywood (LE, $9.99) is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild I’m Seeing Triples Eyelid (LE, $2.29) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Sha La La (LE) is brighter. MAC Dynamic Duo 1 #2 (LE, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches
/ view dupes.

Make Up For Ever S616 Chocolate Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, creamy consistency that was blendable and never powdery. The finish is really nice, as it has a barely-there shimmer that just keeps it from looking too flat on the skin, but it doesn’t look shimmery applied. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. bareMinerals Yes Please (P) is lighter. Tarte Chocolate Kisses (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Vengeance (LE, $18.00) is a touch lighter. Make Up For Ever S-60 (P, $21.00) is a cream product, more shimmery. MAC A Harvest of Greens #4 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Cry Later (LE) is more shimmery. MAC Texture (P, $15.00) is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever I606 Pinky Earth Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever I606 Pinky Earth Artist Shadow

Make Up For Ever I606 Pinky Earth Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had insanely rich color payoff where a little went a long way. The texture was creamy–almost like a cream eyeshadow–and very smooth, so the color went on evenly but was also blendable. The color wore well for nine hours before fading. Tarte Silk Robe (LE) is a smidgen lighter. Kat Von D Papilio (P) is less red. Too Faced Soleil (P, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Too Faced Amaretto (P, $16.00) is lighter. Clarins The Essentials #9 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer. Makeup Geek Blitz (P, $6.99) is lighter. CoverGirl Scorching Cocoa (355) (P, $4.99) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever I662 Amber Brown Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden copper with a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation that was fully opaque and went on incredibly smoothly and evenly on the skin (arm and eyelid). The consistency felt creamy, buttery, and rich, while it lasted for nine hours before fading. Ardency Inn Copper (P, $21.00) s slightly brighter. Make Up For Ever ME700 Amber (P, $21.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever ME654 Cauldron (P, $21.00) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Amber (P) is lighter. Clarins The Essentials #6 (LE) is browner. Disney by Sephora Drizella (LE) is more muted. Urban Decay Baked (P, $18.00) is similar. NARS Isolde #1 (P, $24.00) is warmer, lighter. bareMinerals Truffle (LE) is similar. Inglot #405 (P, $6.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever ME930 Black Purple Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich, blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The color payoff is fantastic with a really rich, buttery texture that goes on so smoothly. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. This shade was featured in the Artist Palette as well, so I’m able to confirm that the two are equal in quality, which is excellent. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever D868 Crystalline Pink Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a pink-tinged white with iridescent pink and silver flecks of sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a fairly creamy, dense texture. The “Crystalline” shades seem to be more layering ones (think Make Up For Ever’s Star Powders) that transform colors underneath, though they’re brightening on their own, as they’re very sparkly. The sparkle adheres with the base color, but there was some fall out over the eight-hour wear time. Stila Pink Diamond (P) is warmer. Dior Trafalgar #1 (P) is similar. Laura Mercier Diamond Pink (LE, $23.00) is more metallic. Too Faced Coquet (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Instaglam (LE) is less sparkly. MAC Pastelluxe #3 (P) is pinker. MAC Invincible Light (LE, $21.00) is pinker. NARS Cassiopeia (P, $29.00) is less sparkly. Shiseido Mist (WT 901) (P, $25.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Copper MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments
Ardency Inn Copper MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments

Here are the last four shades of Ardency Inn MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.). You can see the full range here if you missed any past reviews! :) I’ve been incredibly impressed by the texture, color payoff, and wear with the majority of the shades.

Ardency Inn Copper MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “bronze pearl with metallic gold.” It’s a rich, brightened copper with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The consistency was creamy, buttery, and smooth with intense color payoff. This shade still looked immacuate after ten hours of wear. This is an extremely dupable shade, though. Tarte Candlelit Dinner (LE) is less frosted. Make Up For Ever ME728 Copper Red (P, $21.00) is lighter. LORAC Nude #2 (LE) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #3 (LE) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Dog Roses (LE) is less shimmery. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #3 (P) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Amber (P) is yellower. MAC Exquisite Ego #2 (LE, $21.00) is brrighter. LORAC Gold (P) is similar. Maybelline Breaking Bronze (P, $6.99) is lighter. NARS Isolde #1 (P, $24.00) is less shimmery. MAC Amber Lights (P, $15.00) is similar. bareMinerals Louder (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Rose Gold MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose with warm golden reflects.” It’s a warm-toned, golden plum with rose and mauve tones to it, and it has a soft, frosted finish. The color payoff was excellent, while the texture was so soft and blendable. The color lasted for ten hours before showing signs of fading. I think this shade is harder to dupe, because it’s not quite brown, but it’s not pink or mauve. bareMinerals Catch Me If (P) is much cooler-toned but has a similar finish. NARS Dolomites (Left) (LE, $24.00) is cooler-toned, pinker. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is browner. Urban Decay Liar (P, $18.00) is brownre. Makeup Geek Twilight (P, $5.99) is pinker. MAC Smokeluxe #3 (P) is darker, browner. Disney by Sephora Chateau (LE) is darker, browner. theBalm Just This Once Jamie (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned, less golden. Giorgio Armani #7 (P, $33.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Disco MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “sparkly smoky grape with silver reflects.” It’s a muted, medium-dark warm-toned purple with a frosted sheen and silver sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it had a creamier (almost wet-like) texture that was thinner than other shades in the range (but similar to Vintage Gold). It wore well for nine hours before fading slightly. MAC Plumluxe #3 (P) is lighter. NARS Jardin Perdu (Right) (LE, $24.00) is cooler-toned. Too Faced Nashville (P, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Pearled Earth (P, $15.00) is similar. Too Faced Candied Violet (P, $16.00) is warmer. Too Faced Bluff (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is more sparkly. theBalm Lavish Latoya (LE, $16.00) is brighter, lighter. Urban Decay Rapture (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Winterized (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Frost at Midnight (LE, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Peacock MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “deep cool brown with extreme turquoise reflects.” It’s a reddish-brown base with a cool-toned, green-teal shimmer on top–it is a duochrome that we have seen often (pretty, though!). The quality is top notch with rich, intense pigmentation and a soft, buttery texture. It lasted for ten hours on me. Kat Von D On the Road (P, $16.00) is greener. NARS Malacca (P, $24.00) is less shimmery. Fyrinnae Boot Season (P, $6.80) is greener. Makeup Geek Insomnia (P, $6.99) is similar. MAC Woodsmoke (LE, $15.00) is darker, less shimmery. MAC I’ve Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) is similar. (Also, consider MAC Blue Brown pigment, Too Faced Label Whore, etc.) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Sunday MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments
Ardency Inn Sunday MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments

Here are the next four shades of the Ardency Inn MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) that I’ve tested! I really loved and was impressed by all the shades except one, which was less pigmented, but the other three had fantastic color payoff, soft, buttery textures, and wore for ten hours before fading/creasing.

Ardency Inn Sunday MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “universal beige pearl with gold and pink undertones.” It’s a brightened, light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented, and the texture had such a soft, buttery feel. It lasted for ten hours before lightly creasing. Tarte Golden Locket (LE) is cooler-toned. Stila Vitality (P) is darker. Tarte Up to No Gold (LE) is darker. Milani Bella Sand (02) (P, $3.99) is darker. Dior Sundeck #2 (LE) is more muted. Divergent Golden Honesty (LE) is slightly warmer. theBalm #41 (P, $6.50) is lighter. Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (LE, $28.00) is a cream product. MAC Until Dawn #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter.

See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Heaven MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “metallic champagne with silver and bronze undertones.” It’s a neutral-to-cool toned, antique gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It was so intensely pigmented–a little goes quite a ways!–with a creamy, buttery texture that blends and applies well. It wore well for ten hours without creasing or fading. NARS Kauai #1 (P, $24.00) is slightly darker. Too Faced Tinsel (LE, $16.00) is a touch warmer. bareMinerals Chart Topper (LE) is warmer, less shimmery. bareMinerals Gold Medal (P, $16.00) is more sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Vintage Gold MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “sparkly khaki with warm gold reflects.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with a sparkly, gold shimmer. The consistency of this shade has an almost wet-feel to it that is thinner but emollient on the skin, and while it is buildable, it was only semi-opaque. It lasted for nine hours before creasing slightly, and I did have a tiny bit of fall out over time. Sleek MakeUP Aladdin’s Lamp (LE, $9.99) is darker, cooler-toned. Chanel Tisse Mademoiselle #4 (P) is grayer. Too Faced Leopard (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC A Harvest of Greens #2 (P, $21.00) is lighter. bareMinerals Embellish (LE) is darker.

The color payoff was excellent, and the texture was buttery and soft. It blended well, and it wore well for ten hours without creasing or fading. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #4 (LE) is warmer. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #1 (P) is lighter, cooler-toned. Illamasqua Acute (P) is a cream product. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is a cream product. Inglot #402 (P, $6.00) is warmer.

Ardency Inn Tangerine MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments
Ardency Inn Tangerine MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments

Ardency Inn MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a new eyeshadow formula that’s supposed to have “superior color payoff” and “ultralong-lasting wear, even without an eye primer” due to “high-grade silicon waxes.” This is an impressive eyeshadow formula, particularly if you love your shimmery finishes! I will review all twelve shades in due time, but you can view swatches of all of them here. The shimmer finishes have an extraordinarily creamy, buttery, smooth texture with amazing color payoff. The satin/matte finishes are soft, finely-milled, but less creamy and a bit powdery, but they remained blendable and fairly easy to use. The pearly shades seemed almost wet in the pan with less intensity and a slightly thinner consistency than the more frosted shades. All of the shades below lasted for ten hours on me without creasing/fading. And can we just have a moment to admire Royal?

Also, the pans seem to be only held in by a magnet, so if you have a stronger magnet (to lift it out) or steady hands and tweezer, they do come out of the pan.

Updated on 8/26 at 9:03PM PST: Thanks to reader Tugce, who visited Ardency Inn’s website and noted the following was listed: “In the USA, do not use “Royal”, “Orchid”, “Tangerine” and “Punch” near the eyes.” This is information that really SHOULD be listed on Sephora.

Ardency Inn Tangerine MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “matte yellow orange with a neon kick.” It’s a brightened, yellowed orange with a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft, finely-milled, and velvety, though a smidgen powdery. It lasted for ten hours before fading. Sleek MakeUP Acid #4 (P, $9.99) is a touch lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild A Regular at the Factory #3 (LE, $2.29) is darker. Inglot #122R Top (P, $6.00) is yellower. Maybelline Fierce & Tangy (P, $6.99) is a cream product. MAC Juiced (DC, $15.00) is yellower. Illamasqua Vulgar (P) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Orchid MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “bright fuchsia with extreme blue reflects.” It’s a vibrant, fuchsia-purple with cool, blue undertones and a bluish-violet shimmer-sheen. It had incredibly rich color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly, lasted for ten hours, and was a dream to apply. NARS Rage (LE, $24.00) is more muted, lighter. Maybelline Pink Rebel (P, $6.99) is lighter. Too Faced Totally Fetch (LE, $16.00) is pinker. Urban Decay Fishnet (P, $18.00) is more muted, less shimmery. MAC Stars ‘n’ Rockets (P, $15.00) is lighter. bareMinerals Boudoir (P) is more muted, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Punch MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “matte bright coral with neon pink and yellow undertones.” It’s a brightened, coral-red with a matte finish and warm undertones. It had fairly good color payoff, while the texture was a little powdery, it was soft, finely-milled, and easy to blend. It lasted for ten hours before fading. Makeup Geek Razzleberry (P, $5.99) is more shimmery. MAC Full of Flavour (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC More Amour (P, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ardency Inn Royal MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “royal purple with red undertones and slight blue reflects.” It’s an insanely intense, vibrant violet purple with cool, blue undertones and a soft, frosted finish. A little goes a very long way with this shade! The texture was soft, buttery, and smooth, while it was easy to blend on the skin. It wore well for ten hours and still hadn’t faded/creased. Fyrinnae Parental Advisory (DC, $8.25) is lighter. Fyrinnae Parental Advisory (P, $6.80) is cooler-toned. Disney by Sephora Sea Witch (LE) is more muted. Urban Decay Ransom (DC, $18.00) is more muted. MAC Pink Union #2 (LE, $21.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tom Ford Nude Dip Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Nude Dip Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Nude Dip Eyeshadow Quad ($79.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains four shades of warm-leaning neutrals that go from golden champagne to dark brown. If you remember Emerald Lust or Enchanted, that ultra soft, buttery, richly pigmented formula is back in this new, limited edition quad for fall. The eyeshadows go on so easily and nearly blend themselves; they work and transition into each other in a way that’s effortless. It’s a well-done set of shades, but they’re all dupable, so whether it’s a must-have will depend on your desire to have them in a palette and what you already have in your stash. You’ll also have to love shimmer, as there is quite a bit a frost in this, with all being high-shine except for one, which is more of a satin.

Nude Dip #1 is a brightened, golden champagne with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff that went on well both wet and dry, though it was a smidgen more pigmented and metallic when applied damp. The color wore well for nine hours before fading. MAC Fabulous Three #1 (LE) is less metallic. Too Faced Riviera (P, $16.00) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #3 (P) is lighter. Tarina Tarantino Elektron (P) is similar. Kat Von D Galore (LE) is similar. L’Oreal Iced Latte (P, $7.99) is cooler-toned. Benefit Bikini-tini (P, $10.00) is a cream product. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Nude Dip #2 is a muted, medium copper with a hint of rose and a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation applied wet or dry, and the texture turned slightly more metallic with a damp application. The texture was soft, smooth, and buttery and applied beautifully. The color stayed on without creasing or fading for nine hours. LORAC Unbelievable (P) is browner. bareMinerals Bare Skin (LE) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #2 (P) is darker. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Gingersnap (P, $15.00) is warmer, less shimmery. bareMinerals Rose Gold (P, $14.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Trick (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #11 (P, $9.99) is brighter, warmer. CoverGirl Melted Caramel (330) (P, $4.99) is darker, cooler-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $40.00) is a cream product. MAC Temperature Rising (LE, $15.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Nude Dip #3 is a medium-dark, warm-toned taupe with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had excellent color payoff applied wet and dry, and it was so soft, smooth, and easily blended on the lid. The color wore well for nine hours before fading slightly. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #1 (P) is darker, cooler-toned. LORAC Mocha (P) is warmer. Maybelline Sleek & Spice (95) (LE, $6.99) is a cream product. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #2 (P) is lighter, warmer. Sleek MakeUP Python (P, $9.99) is warmer. Sleek MakeUP Paradise on Earth (P, $9.99) is similar. Urban Decay Mugshot (P, $18.00) is a touch cooler-toned. MAC Until Dawn #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Platinum (LE, $40.00) is a cream product. bareMinerals A-Ha (P) is cooler-toned. Inglot #402 (P, $6.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Nude Dip #4 is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had fantastic pigmentation regardless of application method. The texture was soft, smooth, ultra finely-milled but not powdery. When I wore it, the color didn’t show any signs of creasing until after ten hours of wear. MAC Cocktail Black (LE, $15.00) is darker. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #4 (P) is similar. YSL Saharienne #3 (P) is a touch lighter. bareMinerals Toasted Espresso (LE, $14.00) is similar. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust (LE, $30.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

P.S. — I saw this up briefly for pre-order at Saks, but it’s no longer there, so I’m not sure if Saks already ran through their online stock or not. It’s due out in late August/early September, but with Tom Ford’s launches, they tend to spring up erratically online and in-store.
