BUXOM Champagne Buzz Eyeshadow
BUXOM Champagne Buzz Eyeshadow

BUXOM Champagne Buzz Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering pearl.” It’s a light-medium, golden beige with a hint of warmer, peach undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft and smooth consistency, though it was a smidgen powdery. It applied well to bare skin and lasted for seven and a half hours. Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #1 (P, ) is lighter, brighter, warmer. MAC Terre (Left) (LE, ) is less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #7 (P, ) is warmer.

BUXOM Gold Status Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic brass.” It’s a brightened, medium yellow gold with warm, almost coppery undertones and a frosted sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a really smooth, buttery consistency that was a dream to apply. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours. Milani Bella Sand (02) (P, $4.49) is lighter. Tarte Up to No Gold (LE, ) is brighter. Ulta Gold (P, $10.00) is lighter, brighter. LORAC Undiscovered (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Her Cocoa #1 (LE, $16.00) is darker.

BUXOM Invite Only Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte terracotta.” It’s a medium, orange-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt almost dusty in the pan, but it really worked well on bare skin; it applied evenly and smoothly, while the eyeshadow blended easily. It had very nearly opaque coverage and lasted for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Layin’ Low (P, $18.50) is lighter. Makeup Geek Creme Brulee (P, $5.99) is warmer. Too Faced Honey Butter (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. Buxom Filthy Rich (P, $12.00) is darker. Colour Pop Cornelious (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler.

LORAC Sepia (LE, ) is more pigmented, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Filthy Rich Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte chestnut.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had decent to good color payoff with a lightly dusty but smooth, blendable texture. On me, the color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Saddle (P, $16.00) is lighter. LORAC Unspoken (P, ) is darker, cooler. Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear (P, $5.99) is darker. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse #2 (LE, $2.29) is darker.

Too Faced Chocolate Cookie (P, $16.00) is darker. Sephora + Pantone Universe Chutney (LE, ) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Buxom Invite Only (P, $12.00) is darker. Urban Decay Beware (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, more muted, darker. Urban Decay Riff (P, $18.00) is brighter, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Famous Flirt Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte pastel peach.” It’s a light-medium, peachy orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s definitely not matte; there’s a subtle sheen to the finish that is noticeable on the skin. It had good pigmentation with a soft, slightly powdery texture that still adhered well to the skin and wore for eight hours before fading. bareMinerals Shhh… (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Night Star (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery. bareMinerals Magnate (LE, ) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Mix & Mingle Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte vanilla.” It’s a light-medium yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture had a drier, dusty consistency that was thin, but it blended really well on the skin and didn’t look powdery applied. It had so-so color payoff that was buildable. On me, the color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Entomology (P, ) is darker. Tarte Breakfast in Bed (LE, ) is darker. LORAC Buff (P, ) is lighter. bareMinerals Pacific Sands (LE, ) is lighter. Tarte Just Malt Away (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Damned (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Dream On (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #1 (P, ) is darker. Tarte Summer Breeze (LE, ) is . Hourglass Monochrome #1 (P, ) is lighter. Tarte Free Spirit (LE, ) is darker. LORAC Undressed (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 each or $40 for six) is a new formula that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $13 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place. The eyeshadow formula is one that works better in action than swatched, as several of the mattes seemed on the thinner, more powdery side, but then they would blend exceptionally well while adhering to bare skin–and they wouldn’t fade any faster than the more shimmery eyeshadows. The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

Well, the neutrals seem to score well. I like Champagne Buzz. Mix N Mingle is one of those workhorse shades that I use to brush all over the eye lid to set foundation/primer, hide dark circles, diffuse harsh lines from darker shades. Interesting how it applies better than it swatches

Wow, this batch sure does perform quite nicely! Love the eye look you did with them too! But then again, of course I would as this is my usual go-to type of eye look! So these seem to replicate my faves of MAC Soft Brown, Saddle ( with perhaps a bit of Brown Script buffed in? ), Arena or a few shades from Lorac Unzipped, some UD Sin or Last Sin….Obviously, I love warm browns and they love me back!

I really, really love this idea (especially at this price point). The MUFE shadows are amazing, don’t get me wrong, but I picked up one of these today…including Gold Status, so glad to see it performed well!…and had trouble just narrowing it down to six! The palette is so simple to put together, and assuming the shades I picked perform well, I’ll have a VERY hard time not grabbing another. It’s so nice to have a more complete (not just 3 or 4 shades) palette that you can mix, match, and arrange to your heart’s content that actually looks like a palette and not just a jumble of depotted shadows!

Satin Seduction, La-La-Lavish, Room Service, Gold Status, Haute Couture, and No Faux…I went back and forth on No Faux, because I have and love MUFE Peacock (and Too Faced Girly), but I swatched it next to Peacock and found it to run browner with a less pronounced duochrome, and not as reddish in the base as I remember Girly being. Kind of the less dramatic cousin but I think it’ll be easier to incorporate into more looks!

Definitely a handful of them I kept picking up and putting back, though. Spent a lot of time with Prenup, Backstage Pass, and 24KT Stilettos to name a few, and had the swatches all over my arm to prove it!
