Chanel Empreinte du Desert Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Empreinte du Desert Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Empreinte du Desert Eyeshadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a warm, bronzy set of shades with a pop of warmer green. There was something about the texture that made this really sing when applied; it didn’t seem particularly special (not bad, just more dupable than not) when I initially opened it up nor when I swatched it, but on the lids, the finish is very pearly and shiny–almost wet-looking. It yielded a very bronzy, beachy vibe to me applied, a melted, lived in look that wasn’t messy. The three neutral shades were really nice, while the darker green was blendable and wore well, it could have been more pigmented, though at least it was buildable.

Empreinte du Desert #1 is a medium brown with warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had opaque color payoff with a fairly soft, smooth texture–just not quite as soft as the other shades in the palette. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Chanel Undertone (802) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Smashbox Well, Hello (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Belize (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Anastasia Hot & Cold (LE, $12.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Era (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Empreinte du Desert #2 is a light-medium, orange-y gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had fantastic pigmentation with a very soft, blendable texture that was easy to work with and apply to the lid. It diffused almost effortlessly but didn’t lose its intensity. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before creasing slightly. Smashbox Inside Scoop (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Ardency Inn Sunday (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #3 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Becca Opal (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Stila Vitality (P, ) is darker (90% similar).

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

Empreinte du Desert #3 is a muted, medium-dark forest green with warm, olive undertones and a sparkling, frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well and lasted for eight hours on me. Sephora Luxurious Boot Camp (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Smashbox Spruce (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Protest (-, $19.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Empreinte du Desert #4 id a muted, dark brown with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was a smidgen dusty in the pan. I didn’t notice the dustiness when working with it on the lid, though, and it’s the kind of shade that works well applied at full intensity, and then blended out, or used more sparingly and built up. The color wore well for eight hours on me. Too Faced Everlasting (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Witch (LE, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #5 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2015 (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Rising Passions (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar).

MAC Call of the Canyon Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Call of the Canyon Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Call of the Canyon Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Call of the Canyon Eyeshadow Quad ($33.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes four shades of warmer, neutral tones. All four are new and limited edition to this quad. Overall, the palette was pretty easy to use to create a cohesive look out of, with the darkest shade being the weakest as it had a duster, sheerer texture. Only one shade was really good, though, and they are more dupable shades (except the darkest one), so there are better-performing options out there.

Call of the Canyon is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was easily applied and fuss-free. This was the best-performing shade in the palette. The color lasted for eight hours before fading slightly. Dior Jardin #2 (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). Buxom Satin Seduction (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Shiver Me (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Guerlain Les Nuees #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Whipped Cream (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Pearl (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Sterling (LE, ) is more muted (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE, ) is darker, more muted (95% similar). LORAC Vanilla (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Glitter Glue (LE, ) is more shimmery, more muted (90% similar). MAC Shroom (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Dream It (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #2 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I514 Pink Ivory (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I414 Yellow Ivory (P, $21.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Too-dle-oo (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Mixologist (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Pretty Vulgar Pillow Fight (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE, ) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Hourglass Exposure #1 (P, ) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Fool’s Gold is a bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a slightly looser texture, but it applied fairly well to the skin when patted on. This shade wore for eight hours on me. Cle de Peau Golden Lace #4 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Milani Drenched in Gold (P, $6.99) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Baby It's Gold Outside (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Cushy Life (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Interstellar (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Amber (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Chic (LE, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Until Dawn #2 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Naked Bronze (Eye Color) (LE, ) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Bananas (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Retrospeck (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Too Faced Dearest (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana #7 (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Thunderbolt is a dark, taupe-gray with subtle, cool undertones and warmer, gold shimmer. The shimmer seemed to pull away from the base color, which resulted in an uneven result. The base color was also on the dusty side, so everything appeared sheerer than intended once applied to the skin. It would be better with a lightly tacky or emollient base to give it something more to adhere to. On me, it lasted for six and a half hours before fading noticeably. Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Natasha Denona Deep Slate Gray (32P) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Storm Grey (No. 27) (P, $29.00) is lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Satin Moon #4 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Dark Chocolate (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Crazy Paris #5 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Summer Sun is a slightly muted, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It was on the dusty side, so it sheered out somewhat when applied without a primer in place to help it adhere. It had good color payoff, though, and it wore well for eight hours. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Expensive Pink (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #6 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Starfish (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler, better quality (95% similar). NYX Golden Peach (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Suspiciously Sweet (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition #5 (LE, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Morphe Little Lady (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D750 Frosted Peach (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Mrs. Baily (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Buxom Glitz Factor (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Bouquet Toss (DC, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever 11 Golden Orange (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Lumbre (P, $19.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Coloured Raine Short Cake (P, $6.99) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Freelove (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 2 #4 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Louie (LE, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Cosmopolitan (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Natasha Denona Morgana (131DC) (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Editor’s Note: MAC’s newest collection–Vibe Tribe–has generated some controversy over the last couple weeks for cultural appropriation and/or cultural insensitivity. Both Refinery29 and The Huffington Post posted earlier this week with an official statement from the brand, which stated that: “The collection, including the visuals, product lineup, and naming, is inspired by art, outdoor music festivals, and the colors of the desert. The collection has absolutely no connection to nor was it inspired by the Native American cultures.”

Outdoor festivals are rife with instances of cultural appropriation in the form and manner many dress and accessorize (one of the more egregious examples is the wearing of headdresses–something some festivals have actually banned to avoid future instances of cultural appropriation). I don’t think it’s a surprise that between the pattern on the packaging, some of the shade names, promotional imagery, and a collection name with “tribe” in it that it is making some consumers at least question the inspiration/connection. I wish MAC would consider partnering with a Native designer or artist to create a collection that could truly pay homage to that person’s culture, roots, and inspiration of their craft. They have done this in the past where we have seen the collaborator’s inspiration in the forms of shade names and packaging, so it is a disappointment that they didn’t go that route here. I hope the brand will consider doing more research into their themes going forward.

MAC Wild Horses Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Wild Horses Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Wild Horses Eyeshadow Quad ($33.00 for 0.19 oz.) includes four shades–two of which are part of the permanent range. The blue is an interesting addition, as it is a very neutral set of shades otherwise. It had good quality overall with nice color payoff and eight-hour wear.

Brule is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too soft or too firm.

Charcoal Brown is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, yellow undertones and a matte finish.

Wild Horses is a deep, taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was opaque with a slightly firmer texture that could have been easier to work with and to blend out on the skin. It showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. MAC Black Factor (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Licorice Lane (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Smoke (P, $12.00)(90% similar).

Blue Mesa is a bright, medium blue with subtle bluish sparkle over a satin finish. It is a “warmer” blue (still officially cool-toned!). The texture was soft, lightly dusty, and thinner, and it was prone to sheering out on the lid as well as applied unevenly. I would use a drier base with this shade, so it can adhere more evenly. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Wet 'n' Wild A Regular at the Factory #2 (LE, $2.29) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Inglot #371 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Blindsided (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Bright Editorial #8 (P, ) is lighter (85% similar).

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette
Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.356 oz.) is a set of twelve shades with a general neutral-leaning vibe. Two shades–both in the purple family–are the only non-standard neutrals (your browns, beiges, etc.). There are so many neutral palettes available that it seems like any new-to-market palette should be exceptionally high quality in order to compete with all those other neutral palettes, and this one isn’t. There are several shades that miss here, primarily with respect to pigmentation and texture.

Earth is a dark, taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very soft and finely-milled, but it tended to sheer out and was difficult to blend out, as it looked patchy and uneven on bare skin. It is also the type of texture that darkens when applied directly to the skin compared to how it appears in the pan. It lasted for seven and a half hours for me.

Bone is a muted, light-medium yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was a little dusty and could look dry on the skin (if you have oilier lids, I don’t think it would be an issue, though).

Choco Glace is a medium-dark, reddish brown with a sparkling, pearly sheen. The underlying finish was more of a satin/pearl hybrid, but there was looser sparkle and micro-shimmer that tended to get everywhere but where you intended. It had good color payoff and blended out decently, except for the sparkly bits. Most of the eyeshadow wore well for eight hours with little fall out, but most of the fall out occurred during initial application.

Violet Sugar is a muted, medium-dark silvery purple with cool undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a dusty, drier texture that was prone to sheering out when applied to the lid. This one requires a good, lightly tacky base/primer to perform well. The color was noticeably faded after seven hours of wear. Natasha Denona Slate (27M) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Champs Elysees (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Viseart Boheme Dream (Ribbons Boheme) Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Boheme Dream Eyeshadow Palette
Viseart Boheme Dream Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Boheme Dream Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for summer that features a slightly lighter (almost pastel-like but not quite light enough, at least not to me) take on a “brights” palette. All twelve shades are shimmery, and they vary from pearly to metallic (most are somewhere between frost and metallic). The twelve shades do work together to create looks, but you’ll likely want to add-in your favorite mattes/satins to get more dimension and depth out of the palette. The color payoff was good to great with soft, blendable texture that wore well; a few shades were a little looser in press (not quite as dense as the metallic shades in the newer Theory palettes) but were all easy to work with on the lid.

Boheme Dream #1 is a bright, medium yellow with warm undertones and a frosted sheen–it ran more yellow than it did gold to me. It had great color payoff with a soft, smooth, blendable texture that applied well and blended out easily. The color lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #5 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #26 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Boheme Dream #2 is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellowy tones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish.

Boheme Dream #3 is a medium pink with warm undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish.

Boheme Dream #8 is a bright, medium sky blue with cool undertones and a metallic sheen.

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo ($78.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition blush duo for summer that uses a wet/dry formula. According to the brand, the blush “can be applied wet for a soft veil of color” or “dry for a sweeping pop of vibrancy.” Both shades were fairly pigmented applied dry, but both intensified and were much more opaque when applied damp. They were less blendable when applied with a damp brush (the darker shade was less forgiving). The wear dry was eight to eight and a half hours, and the wear damp was eight and a half hours (for both shades). Forgetting that it’s supposed to be sheer when applied damp, it’s a nice blush duo, and I think that for those who don’t want to bother with damp application, the dry application is actually where the blushes shine best.

Bicoastal (Top) is a light-medium pink with a hint of warm, peach and a frosted sheen. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque with a very frosted sheen that was just shy of emphasizing pores. Applied damp, it was fully opaque (not a “soft veil of color”) with a smoother sheen–it was actually less noticeably shimmery/luminous when applied damp. On me, it wore well for eight hours dry, eight and a half hours damp. The texture was soft, lightly firm in the pan but not stiff, and blendable overall, but it was easiest to blend out when used dry.

Bicoastal (Bottom) is a medium-dark, raspberry pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. Applied dry, it had good pigmentation (but it appeared faded in overall appearance compared to damp application) with a soft, smooth consistency that was easily blended on the skin and wore for eight and a half hours. Applied damp, it was less shimmery and appeared warmer in tone, while the color lasted for nine and a half hours; it wasn’t as blendable when applied with a damp brush (I would use fingers to blend out).
