Sugarpill Mint Soda, Hug Life, Clickbait, Holy Ghost, Grand Tiara Loose Eyeshadows

Sugarpill Mint Soda Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “metallic mint with a sparkling gold sheen.” It’s a brightened golden chartreuse green with gold sparkle and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied dry, while it intensified to mostly opaque pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, silky, and smooth, but there is a lot of sparkle to it, which I did see fall out with while worn, though the color didn’t fade for eight hours.

Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum Eye Color Duo

Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum Eye Color Duo ($60.00 for 0.13 oz.) consists of a iridescent opal and deeper burgundy-brown. I like the concept, and the two colors work well off of each other, as when you blend them together, they create a lighter, iridescent plum shade, but they both have room for improvement.

Sugarpill Strangeling, Charmy, Penelope, Countess Loose Eyeshadows

Sugarpill Strangeling Loose Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “deep metallic violet with aqua reflects.” It’s a brightened violet purple with cool undertones and a metallic finish. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was mostly opaque. It was a more buildable product rather than richly pigmented right out of the jar. The texture was very soft and silky, and it blended well on the skin. It wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. Makeup Geek Caitlin Rose (P, $9.99) is darker, less metallic. Make Up For Ever D926 Blueberry (P, $21.00) is warmer. Makeup Geek Pop Culture (P, $5.99) is less metallic. theBalm #33 (P, $6.50) is more iridescent.

Estee Lauder Chrome, Gold, Pearl, Pink Gold Double Wear Stay in Place Eye Pencils

Estee Lauder Chrome Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil ($23.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium silver with a metallic sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage in two to three layers. It glided on but seemed a little waxy. It lasted for nine hours on me, which is shy of the 12-hours promised. MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is lighter. bareMinerals Certainly Sterling (LE) is lighter. L’Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Cuff (P, $19.00) is similar. MAC Silver Skates (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Bobbi Brown Chrome (LE, $24.00) is cooler-toned.
