Le Metier de Beaute Platinum & Thunder True Color Eyeshadows

Le Metier de Beaute Platinum True Color Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light-medium silver with a frosted, metallic sheen. Applied dry, it had good color payoff and a frosted finish, while applied wet, it took on a more metallic finish and was fully opaque. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth.  It lasted nine hours on the lid without creasing or fading (no primer). Disney Glass Slipper is bluer. L’Oreal Primped & Precious is darker. Lancome Style Section is darker. bareMinerals Cheers is lighter, less metallic. Inglot #447 is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Sephora Fairytale & My Boyfriend’s Jeans Contour Eye Pencil

Sephora Fairytale Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “golden green.” It’s a blue-teal with green and gold micro-shimmer. This shade was only semi-opaque when applied, and even layering by doing multiple passes didn’t quite intensify it to really true-to-pencil color. I wouldn’t recommend wearing it on the water line if you have sensitive eyes due to the amount of shimmer in it (and I don’t think it’s touted as water line safe). It lasted well for nine hours on me (not the 12 hours claimed), and by the twelfth hour, it was thinner than it was when I had initially applied but I didn’t see smudging or a lot in the corners of my eyes. Make Up For Ever #52L doesn’t have the golden shimmer. Urban Decay Junkie seems a bit darker. MAC Undercurrent is also darker. See comparison swatches.
