Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette ($95.00 for 0.25 oz.) contains six, shimmery eyeshadows that feature a wet/dry powder formula. I think if you like more pigmented eyeshadows that are blendable and wear well, you will enjoy this palette. That being said, there was not much of a difference between wet and dry for most shades; a couple of shades became more metallic and one had better color payoff applied damp. The formula was soft, smooth, and finely-milled and felt almost velvety to the touch, as it didn’t kick up powder but wasn’t really dense or cream-like either.

The compact itself has heft and has a very solid clasp. The black-hued portion is not plastic, and it has a softer, slightly plush feel–like leather (or pleather), but I’m not certain if it’s real leather or not, and it is carried through all of the collection’s compact products.

Fired Sapphire is a bright, medium blue with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque and wasn’t as pearlized as it was when it was applied damp, where the shimmer was more noticeable and gave the color a brighter look overall (and it was totally opaque). The consistency was soft, blendable, and silky, so it was easy to work with on bare skin and did not need a primer to perform well at all! This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. NYX Kiss in Casablanca (P, $4.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Blonde Cumin is a light-medium gold with warm, brown undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It was richly pigmented both applied dry and damp, while damp application made the shimmer appear smoother and more reflective. The texture was soft, smooth, and easy to work with on the lid as the color blended out easily without losing its intensity. On me, it wore for eight hours before I noticed subtle fading.

Metal Saffron is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a golden bronze shimmer. It had opaque color payoff both wet and dry, while the damp application was slightly smoother and more reflective. The texture was silky, smooth, and finely-milled, but it wasn’t powdery or dusty, so it adhered beautifully to bare skin and I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing slightly. Kat Von D Copper (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Don't Settle (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Chiffon (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Brownie (P, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Burnished Sage is a medium-dark forest green with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. Again, the color payoff was the same regardless of application method–totally opaque–which isn’t as described but I expect that to be welcomed by most. The texture was soft, just a smidgen dusty, but it applied well to the lid without sheering out or becoming patchy when blended. It wore well for almost nine hours before I saw signs of fading. Smashbox STFU (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Epic (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #11 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar).

Sugarpill Junebug (P, $13.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gray Amber is a dark, charcoal gray with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, satiny shimmer. It was semi-opaque and appeared warmer and lighter when applied dry, while the damp application yielded opaque coverage that was much more intense and appeared deeper in overall color. The texture was soft, lightly dusty but not prone to sheering out or fading over time, as it still wore for a solid eight hours before I detected changes in intensity. MAC Nighttrain (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #4 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Caviar (LE, $45.00) is glossier (95% similar). Viseart Diane (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Black Nutmeg is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. When I applied it dry, it appeared less intense and a little lighter than when I applied it damp, though the coverage was opaque applied both wet and dry. The powder had a soft, smooth, and silky texture that wasn’t powdery or dusty. It adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease, and it stayed on well for eight and a half hours.

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette ($46.00 for 1.32 oz.) includes 20 eyeshadows arranged into four combinations. I like how they separated the colors, as it gives you a good idea of how to start pairing colors together, but if you want to go rogue, there’s nothing stopping you either! It’s a mixed bag; some shades are nice, some shades are difficult to work with, and the rest are somewhere in the middle. I like that there’s a mix of warmer and cool(er) shades, and there is a nice mix of finishes and depths, so you can get a variety of looks out of the palette. I also liked that this was a much slimmer palette compared to Tarte’s other holiday offerings, which are housed in bulky containers, so this would work better for traveling and take up less room when stored. I wish, though, that the quality was more consistent. The formula felt a little less smooth and silky compared to the brand’s permanent palettes (like Tartelette) but was also less dusty/powdery, though I had similar issues with the colors fading faster than average.

Pixel is a light peachy beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable and applied well to bare skin.

Love Hue is a soft, light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a mostly matte finish, though there is a dusting of silvery sparkle, but it doesn’t bind with the base, so it has little impact on the finish. The texture was firmer, so it was hard to get pigment out of the pan, which resulted in medium coverage at best. It wore well for six hours before fading. Kat Von D Noble (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Buxom Gimme Gorgeous (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Skinny Latte (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Different Strokes is a medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that wasn’t too dusty or too firm, which made it easy to work with. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Smashbox Supermodel (P, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Lantana (LE, ) is brighter (90% similar). LORAC Nectar (P, $19.00) is more muted (95% similar).

On the Monet is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The pigmentation was good, but the texture was thin and drier to the touch–it was surprisingly thin for a richer, warmer, and more bronzy shade. I found it prone to fading, as it only lasted for six hours, and sheering out on the lid. Coloured Raine Intergalactic (P, $6.99) is lighter (95% similar). Guerlain Coque d'Or #3 (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Off Duty (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #2 (P, ) is brighter, warmer (90% similar).

Glaze is a soft, golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, fairly blendable texture on the skin, but it was easier to use with a firmer, flatter brush than a fluffy one, as the shimmer did not diffuse as easily with a fluffy brush. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Cle de Peau Calm (Right) (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Peony (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

For Realism is a muted, medium-dark purply taupe with cooler undertones and a matte finish.

Color Vibes is a soft, medium brown with warm undertones and a subtle, grayish cast paired with a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, though it appeared lighter and brighter swatched than it did in the pan. The texture was firmer but not stiff, so it was still blendable when I tried using it on the lid. It wore well for seven hours before fading. MAC Eternal Optimist (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Silver Fox (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Seascape is a deep, steely gray with cool, blue undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff that applied well to bare skin and was easy to blend out. The texture wasn’t too firm or too soft. On me, it lasted for seven and a half hours. LORAC Slate (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Inked is a deep navy blue with a hint of purple paired with a matte finish. The texture was very dusty–almost chalky–and very prone to adhering better in some places and less so in others, which resulted in an uneven application that couldn’t be corrected by trying to blend it out (it just wouldn’t move). It wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Switch Me On (LE, $20.00)(100% similar). Smashbox Harbor (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Deep Night (P, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Exhibit is a soft, light pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that was thin and prone to sheering out. It worked better to help blend out or diffuse darker plums/purples along the edges (almost like a transition shade) than alone as a result. It wore well for six hours before fading noticeably.

Pop Art Princess is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a sparkly, metallic finish. The texture was drier and a little gritty, so there was fall out during application. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which applied better with a firm brush or fingertip, as I noticed some skipping and patchiness when I used a regular domed eyeshadow brush. It wore well for six and a half hours before creasing. Laura Mercier Primrose (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Sandy Toes (P, $10.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Modern Icon is a muted, medium pinky-mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a thinner, drier texture that absorbed the skin’s natural oils very easily, which resulted in more uneven color that was difficult to blend out. This shade wore for seven hours on me. MAC Quite Spoiled (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Benefit Pause for Applause (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Lancome My French #2 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar).

Getty Up & Go is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was fairly blendable and didn’t turn patchy when blended out.

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Illusion is a deep purple with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was on the drier side, which made it harder to blend out for more diffused edges. I noticed a bit of fading after seven hours of wear. Urban Decay Tornado (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS High Society #3 (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty How You Want (P, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio
Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio ($36.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains three powder highlighters to “give skin a luminous look” that uses “sophisticated, microfine Naked shimmer” and can be used on face and body. As far as coverage goes, the brand says “the color payoff of a loose powder with the convenience of a pressed powder,” which suggests high pigmentation from my experience with loose vs. pressed products and resulting coverage. If you’re unfamiliar with Urban Decay’s Illuminated formula, it’s actually rather sparkly and would not use the word “microfine” to describe it–these are best for those who want noticeable sparkle on the skin, though the underlying finish is more subdued or in this palette, two of the shades just give random sparkle rather than adding luminosity to the skin. Two of the three shades were rather sheer in this palette as well. It is a baked formula, and I have found these to fade faster than traditional powder blushes.

Pyrite is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen and light bits of gold micro-sparkle. This was the least visibly sparkly on the skin, but it also produced the strongest sheen. The texture was soft, slightly dusty but smooth, applied well and blended out without much effort. The color lasted for seven hours on me before fading. Too Faced You Light Up My Life (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Frosted (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Idol (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Park Ave Princess (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Goddess (P, $48.00) is warmer (90% similar). Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is darker (90% similar). CoverGirl Bronze (200) (P, $9.99) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Sunray (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 4 Golden Peach (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). Tarte Sparkler (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Oasis is a very light beige with subtle, warm undertones and silver sparkle. The texture was firm, stiff, and difficult to get the product off of as a result. This impacted the color payoff, too, and it was extremely sheer (I could barely get any to show). Applied, I get a few bits of sparkle but almost no detectable luminosity on my skin, so I actually think it misses the mark completely as an illuminator! All the sparkles had vanished within six hours (that’s about all I could judge the wear from). Cle de Peau Delicate Pink (14) (P, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, $40.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). Cle de Peau Bal Masque (LE, $120.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Luminous (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Twilight is a muted, light-medium peachy-orange with an iridescent pink sparkle. (I was surprised at how similar it was to Aura, actually.) The powder was thinner and dusty to the touch, and it kicked up an excess amount of product in the pan, even with a light hand. I saw visible bits of the pink sparkle on the skin but little in the way of even illumination, so it looked matte in photos. The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer, and it was just barely visible on my skin tone in person (but not in photos). The softness of the powder made it easy to blend on the skin, and it didn’t emphasize my skin’s texture or pores. It seemed to wear for about six hours on me. Urban Decay Fireball (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Hard Candy (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Aura (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Starlight (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Cle de Peau Golden Apricot (P, $55.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette ($54.00 for 0.48 oz. ) is a new, permanent neutral-hued palette that features 12 shades with one shade that’s shimmery and 11 that are touted as matte (a few have faint sparkle/shimmer in the pan but none of them looked shimmery on the skin to my eye). I don’t have an exact release date, just that it will be debuting in September and will be available at all retailers that sell Urban Decay (but I’d expect it to launch on Urban Decay’s website first).

If you’re unfamiliar with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow formula, it is described as having a “velvety texture,” “rich color,” “serious staying power and blendability.” Some the brand’s best mattes are ones like Riff, which really did combine high color payoff with a silky, smooth, and blendable texture that applies well on bare skin as well as with traditional eye primer, but other times, their matte formula has left something to be desired, where the texture has been thin, chalky, dusty, and/or less pigmented.

Naked Ultimate Basics sits somewhere in-between for me overall; the texture is nowhere near as smooth or as finely-milled as I have seen from the brand, but it isn’t as dusty nor as dry as the shades in Naked Smoky. The press was firm enough that the majority of shades didn’t kick up too much excess product in the pan, had decent pigmentation, wear, and blendability, but there were some troublemakers (Instinct, Lethal, Magnet) that were harder to work with, even over primer. Most of the matte shades darkened slightly when I applied them to my skin compared to how they appeared in their pans.

Blow is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had good pigmentation paired with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. The color lasted for eight hours. LORAC Dream Girl #10 (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). MAC Apricot Blend #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Preferred Blonde (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Nudie is a light-medium peach-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly dusty and thinner, which made it more prone to sheering out on the skin. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Sephora + Pantone Universe Macaroon (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Pirates Chest (LE, $19.00) is brighter (90% similar). Viseart Minx #1 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar).

Commando is a muted, medium-dark beige with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had a very soft, smooth feel to it that blended out nicely on the skin but didn’t lose its intensity immediately. This shade had good color coverage and lasted for eight hours. Colour Pop Hanky Panky (P, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Nude Smoke (24) (P, $39.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Hearts & Crafts (LE, ) is brighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tempted is a medium-dark taupe with a hint of rosiness and warmer undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture was dustier, and it was harder to apply this one evenly without the use of primer underneath. It had semi-opaque color payoff and started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Heaven Knows (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Haux (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Les Cendres #2 (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar).

Urban Decay DTF (LE, $19.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Instinct is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade had a much firmer press to it, which made it hard to get the product out of it and resulted in semi-sheer coverage. It didn’t blend well, and I couldn’t really get the color to build-up much either, as it did not respond well to layering. What little I managed to apply lasted for seven hours from what I could tell. Anastasia Lure (LE, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Tickety Boo (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Givenchy Rose Dentelle (3) (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Cashmere (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Otherwise (P, ) is darker (95% similar).

Lethal is a deep plum with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, while the consistency was lightly dusty but not too thin and blended out decently. It would be easier to work with over a primer, but it was manageable on bare skin. I found this shade to be buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. It wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. Ciate Day Dream (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Power Plum (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar).

Pre-Game is a light, buttery yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque, that applied evenly and blended out without any trouble. The texture was soft, a bit powdery, but it sat well on the skin and did not look dry. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear. MAC Real Fantasy (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Extra Bitter is a medium-dark, coppery-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and blendable; it wasn’t too powdery nor was it too firm in the pan. It was one of the best-performing shades in the palette. The pigmentation was fantastic, and it wore well for a solid eight hours. Smashbox Throwback (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Persona Audacious (P, ) is lighter (95% similar).

Faith is a soft, medium-dark brown with warm, yellowy undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow has a soft, silky consistency that was smooth and easy to work with on bare skin, as it applied with rich coverage and blended out nicely.

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lockout is a dark brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It is just slightly darker and less yellow-based compared toFaith (but I do think they are too similar to have in the same palette–they could have made this one darker or much cooler to add more differentiation). The texture was soft, blendable, and silky without being powdery or dusty. It had good pigmentation and applied evenly, while the color lasted well for eight hours. Viseart Warm Mattes #11 (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Cedar (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Chessboard (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Magnet is a muted, dark gray with a hint of purplish undertones paired with a mostly matte finish. You can see subtle sparkle in the pan close-up, but it did not translate onto the lid. The texture was thin, drier, and dusty, which caused it to sheer out and apply unevenly. This shade was difficult to use alone; it was better used to darken other shades, as it just looked uneven and patchy alone. It lasted for seven hours on me. NARS Delphes #2 (LE, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). MAC Interior Life (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Concrete Jungle (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Blackjack is a deep black with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, a little dusty, and fairly blendable, though it is not the easiest black eyeshadow to work with. I liked it best applied in sheerer layers to minimize any unevenness/patchiness that might occur. The application issues with this one seemed mostly resolved if used over a primer as well. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably. Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Fin (LE, $30.00) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette Overview, Photos, & Swatches

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette
Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette ($35.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a limited edition palette that includes 12-pans of lipstick with all shades from the brand’s permanent range of colors. There are two variations available, and between the two palettes, there are three shades that overlap–714, Big Bang, and Firebird. Junkie is slightly cooler in tone (particularly the second row) and includes a few less “traditional” shades. This palette is exclusive to Sephora and should launch sometime in September (I don’t have an exact date).

Value

A full-sized Vice Lipstick retails for $17.00 and contains 0.11 oz., which works out to be $154.55/oz. The palette retails for $35.00 and contains 0.24 oz., which works out to be $145.83/oz. — that’s actually impressive, because it’s just small enough that I thought it might be more expensive by the ounce, but one could easily see the value in having 12 shades for $1.00 more than the cost of two full-sized shades. Another way to look at value is by how many shades there are, which would out to be $2.92 per shade. There is also a twist-up lip brush included in the palette, and there is obviously some value there.

It is important to think about your own habits and preferences, though, because not everyone applies their lip colors with a brush or will take the extra time to do so. It is also less portable than carrying one shade in your bag for touch-ups during the day. I think the palette is small enough to travel well, but it is still a medium-sized palette. If you are the type of person who likes to apply their lipstick with a brush (or doesn’t mind having to do so) and will carry the palette with them/isn’t concerned about touch-ups, it is a great value.

Overview

As I just swatched the 120-shade line a few months ago, I’m not going to be extensively reviewing or photographing these (there are just so, so many lip color releases this year that I’m behind as is and would like to feature other brands and formulas as well!). I would consider this an overview or initial impressions, rather than an in-depth review. I hope you understand! 🙂

What I did do was test several shades from the palette, ones that did not perform as well in full-size and ones that did, as well as checking across finishes, for consistency with the full-size shades. In general, the colors, finishes, and application remained the same across the shades. The biggest difference being the texture, as applying directly from the tube yielded more product on the lips than when applying from the pan with a lip brush–this is inherent between the two types of application, as I get a similar weight and feel if I apply the same color from the full-sized, twist-up tube with a lip brush as I did by applying with a lip brush from the pan of color.  Here are the differences I noticed in color/texture:

  • Wrath had slightly more slip.
  • Vanity Kills had less shine and application improved with a lip brush (compared to from the tube).
  • Speedball was slightly less emollient, which made it easier to apply more evenly (but it still was uneven).
  • Junkie seemed a smidgen less emollient but still gathered in lip lines.

Below, is a “round-up” of the 12 shades, and the ratings associated with each shade are based on testing the full-sized to give you an idea of the overall quality of the palette. You can also click to read the full review for each shade as well as view all swatches in the round-up.
