MAC A Waft of Grey Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Waft of Grey Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is the smoky eye quad–a mix of silver-shot white, silver, gray, and black.  I had fall out during wear with the silver and gray shades, as both were quite sparkly, but the colors themselves wore between six and eight hours.  Because it is a smoky eye quad, the colors are rather dupeable, so I would recommend looking elsewhere if you’re in the market for a silver/gray/black palette.

MAC A Medley of Mauves Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC A Medley of Mauves Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a cooler-toned pink and purple-themed palette. It consisted of a light-medium pink, pinky-purple, plum, and medium brown. There was noticeable fading after seven hours of wear with all the shades, and I had a fair amount of sparkle fall out underneath my eye. I had higher hopes, given that the two I tested the day before had done surprisingly well on wear. If you’re still drawn to this palette, I would recommend using a slightly tacky base with them to improve wear, minimize fall out, and improve blendability.

China Glaze Mingle with Kringle, Be Merry Be Bright, All Wrapped Up, Your Present Required Nail Lacquers

China Glaze Mingle with Kringle Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “fierce gold with aluminum-like mirror finish.” It’s a vibrant, rich yellow gold with a metallic, foil-like finish and larger copper flecks of sparkle. It was fully opaque after applying two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too then, so the polish applied evenly and smoothly without pooling along the edges. Zoya Kerry (P, $8.00) is yellower. Chanel Gold Fingers (LE, $27.00) is darker. ORLY Flare (P, $5.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Pencils

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Pencil (£19.00 for 0.06 oz.) were definitely the one formula/product I was excited to test from the new range, as it was getting non-stop raves across the blogosphere. I think whether they work magic for you will depend on how you prefer to use jumbo eyeshadow pencils; if you use them as an all-over wash, you’ll probably like these. If you want to wear them together, not as much, and if you want to wear shadow on top, even less.

Illamasqua Fusion & Perseid Nail Varnish

Illamasqua Fusion Nail Varnish (£14.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “khaki gold glitter.” It’s a deepened, muted, olive brown with golden olive shimmer and sparkle. It was mostly opaque in two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. It dried a little faster than average, but it still had a naturally shiny finish without a top coat. Chanel Mysterious (601) (P, $27.00) has no shimmer and is greener. Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie 2.0 (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Ripley (P, $10.00) is lighter, greener. SpaRitual Lithophonic (LE, $10.00) has green shimmer, is greener overall. See comparison swatches.
