The shimmer is very fine so that it creates more of a sheen on the skin than visible shimmer. MAC Animal Instincts (LE, $21.00) is warmer, browner. MAC Lavish Living (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery. theBalm Cabana Boy (P, $21.00) is brighter. NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is warmer, redder. NARS Oasis (P, $30.00) is warmer, less purple. MAC Plum Foolery (P, $21.00) is pinker. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal (P, $22.00) is slightly warmer. NARS Sin (P, $30.00) is darker, richer.

Urban Decay Lounge, Sideline, Beware, Riff Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Lounge Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “brick red with green shift.” It’s a rich, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a green-teal flash of shimmer on top that gives it a more metallic finish overall. It had good color payoff with a soft, buttery texture that worked well on bare skin and was easy to blend out. This shade felt slightly softer and not quite as dense as the other duochromes from Urban Decay in this launch. This shade was released previously in their older formula. Once upon a time, this shade may have been more unique, but now it is one of the most replicated duochrome shades. Sephora + Pantone Universe Castor Gray (LE) is less shimmery. Colour Pop Partridge (P, $5.00) is a cream product, weaker duochrome. Ardency Inn Peacock (P, $21.00) is exactly the same. Kat Von D On the Road (P, $16.00) is slightly greener. Makeup Geek Insomnia (P, $6.99) is the same. Kat Von D Queen (LE) is the same. Too Faced Girly (LE, $16.00) is the same. MAC Double Feature #5 #2 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC I’ve Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) is the same. Make Up For Ever ME302 Peacock (P, $21.00) has a stronger shimmer, so it appears greener, less brown.

Urban Decay Backfire, Dive Bar, Fireball, Tonic Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Backfire Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “burgundy with purple shift.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with subtle, warmer undertones and a cooler purple overtone. The duochrome seemed weak here; it’s hard to even tell when angling one’s arm in the light to find it. It had great pigmentation with a soft, creamy, and very dense texture that applied easily and blended well. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Vanity (LE, $18.00) is darker. theBalm Surfari (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Remix (LE, $18.00) is warmer.
