Makeup Atelier Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Makeup Atelier Nude (T01S) Eyeshadow Palette
Makeup Atelier Nude (T01S) Eyeshadow Palette

Makeup Atelier Nude (T01S) Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.44 oz.) contains five eyeshadows. The color combination seemed more unique than not, as it combined warmer and cooler tones together, which resulted in an combination I don’t think I’ve ever worn before. The formula ran thin, sometimes a little dusty, but they were blendable and fairly easy to apply to bare skin. They tended to fade or crease within seven hours of wear for me. I’m not sold on the formula yet, but I have six more palettes to try!

Nude #1 is a light, white-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a slightly dusty, thinner texture that was blendable on the skin. On my skin tone, it was chalky, so it was hard to use it without it making the area look almost dry. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading. Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 01 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Put a Bow On It (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Viseart Petit Pro #1 (LE, ) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Thirteen (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). L'Oreal Paris Beach (P, $5.99) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Let It Snow (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Bone (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Charmer (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M530 Eggshell (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Glaze (LE, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Amour (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Cashmere #1 (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Lifelike (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Frosty Nog (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Grande Pro (Vol. 1) #1 (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Glow (LE, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Sephora Powder (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nude #2 is a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a fine shimmer finish. When I went to blend this shade, the shimmer blended off of the base color, leaving behind more of a satin finish and moderate shimmer fall out underneath the eye. The texture was thin and dusty, which might have been why the shimmer separated so readily, though the base color was fairly blendable. It lasted for seven hours on me. Coloured Raine Birthday Suit (P, $6.99) is lighter (90% similar). NARS St-Paul-de-Vence (Left) (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Play (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Vendome #3 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Button (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Apricot Blend #3 (LE, ) is brighter (90% similar). Sephora Latergram (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Gem (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Nirvana (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Viseart Orange Topaz (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Galore #2 (LE, ) is lighter (80% similar). Anastasia Surface of the Sun (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Mortal #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nude #3 is a light-medium, taupe-brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, smooth, lightly dusty consistency that applied well to bare skin. The eyeshadow was blendable and easy to work with. On me, it started to crease after seven hours. Makeup Geek Barcelona Beach (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tarte View from the Taupe (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Kid (DC, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #1 (P, $30.00) is warmer (85% similar). Becca Ombre Nudes #2 (P, ) is warmer (80% similar). Makeup Atelier Natural Brown #3 (P, ) is darker, warmer (80% similar). IT Cosmetics Adore (P, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Lancome Sante (P, $19.00) is warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Cornelious (P, $5.00) is warmer (80% similar). Hourglass Infinity #2 (P, ) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nude #4 is a medium taupe with strong gray tones and a gold sparkle over a mostly matte finish. The sparkle comes away from the underlying color, so it can be messy to work with as the glittery bits get all over the face. The powder is very soft and smooth, so it blended out without issue, but it ends up looking matte at the end of application. It wore well for seven hours. Chanel Signe Particulier #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Twilight (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nude #5 is a muted, medium-dark bluish-gray with cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a drier, dustier consistency that was workable but took extra effort to blend out to avoid patchiness. This shade lasted for seven hours on me. bareMinerals Mysterious Sky (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). MAC A Waft of Grey #3 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Tink (DC, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Natasha Denona Anthrazit (06P) (P, $29.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #8 (P, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sex & the Oyster (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Chateau (LE, ) is cooler (85% similar). Burberry Nickel (304) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). theBalm Surf's Up (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar).

Anastasia Summer 2016 Mini Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Lip Gloss
Anastasia Lip Gloss

Anastasia Summer 2016 Lip Gloss Set ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, travel-sized glosses in hues from rosy brown to berry. All six shades are new and limited edition. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth” and “weightless” with the “intensity of a stain” and “the mirror-like shine of a gloss.” If you love really pigmented gloss, Anastasia’s is well-worth trying, as many apply well, have full coverage, last a good awhile, are comfortable, and are mostly non-sticky. There are a few misses in the range, but for the most part, I’ve been impressed. I really hope they’ll release a few of these individually into the permanent range! The set contains $42.00 worth of gloss (full-size is 0.16 fl. oz. for $16.00), for reference.

Blushing is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly with almost no visible streaking, but it did pull into lip lines slightly for me. I didn’t notice it as much from a normal viewing distance, though. The consistency was smooth, comfortable, and lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted. Anastasia Peony (-, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Edward Bess First Kiss (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Captivating Carnation (080) (P, $8.99) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Fearless (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Blush Essence (095) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Flushed (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Ten (Watercolor) (LE, ) is warmer (85% similar). Cle de Peau Sequin (14) (P, $48.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Illamasqua Indulge (P, $22.00) is brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Caramel is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had intense color payoff with a smooth, creamy texture that applied evenly to the lips. Like Blushing, it sat in some of my deepest lip lines, which you can see in the close-up photo, but I couldn’t see it in person. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating. Anastasia Kristen (-, $16.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). NYX Chocolate Crepe (P, $5.99) is darker (85% similar). MAC Show Me (P, $19.50) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Grape Jelly is a bright, medium-dark purple with warm, vred undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The texture was light-to-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky. This shade lasted for five hours on me. MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Heroine (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (DC, $28.00) is more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

St. Tropez is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with a ton of metallic gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, though it was the least pigmented shade in the set. The coverage was even, while the gloss was comfortable to wear with a lightweight, more gel-like consistency compared to the other shades. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating. Cle de Peau Flushed (13) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Bon Bon (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (80% similar). MAC Mega Hug (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). NARS Fast Life (LE, $28.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tango is a medium-dark, pink-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was very, very rich, while the formula had a creamy, smooth, and comfortable texture that applied evenly. This shade lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time. NARS La Main Bleue (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay After Dark (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NYX Spice Cake (P, $5.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). NYX Toasted Marshmallow (P, $5.99) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Toffee is a medium brown with warm, peachy undertones and very fine pink shimmer in a mostly cream finish. The shimmer is hard to detect, and that’s possibly due to the consistency, which is smooth and light-medium in thickness, so it may cover some of the shimmer once applied. It went on fairly evenly, but it did emphasize lip lines slightly. This shade wore well for four hours on me and was moisturizing while worn. Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) (DC, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Kristen (-, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Show Me (P, $19.50) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Liar (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit
Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four ultra-shimmery highlighters in warmer hues. The formula is consistent in the palette and also consistent with the other two, previously-released Glow Kits. I wish they had gone darker on both of the lighter shades–Summer and Moonstone–and differentiated better between the two, as they look quite similar even heavily applied but almost the same when diffused/sheered out (more like how typical highlighters are applied).

Bronzed is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was fairly blendable and easy to use. The texture was almost too dense on the skin, which made blending less effortless compared to some highlighters, but it didn’t require too much extra time to blend it out. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading. Cover FX Candlelight (P, $34.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow (P, $48.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Candlelight (P, $42.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Ignite (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Avalon (LE, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Cover FX Gilded (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sunlight (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Divine (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow (LE, $48.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (-, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition #21 (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Summer is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It wasn’t quite as high-shine as Bronzed, but it’s not a subtle highlight! It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, finely-milled texture that blended out easily. I noticed very slight emphasis of my skin’s texture when applied with about medium coverage. The highlighter wore well for just over eight hours. Anastasia Sunburst (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Now's the Time (LE, $26.00) is more muted (95% similar). Smashbox Turn It On Pearl (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Huda Beauty Saint-Tropez (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Star Reader (LE, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Extra (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Hourglass Pure Strobe Light (LE, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Ciate Starburst (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Burst (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Coloured Raine No Flash Needed (P, $25.00) is cooler (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 13 Ivory (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). J. Cat Beauty White Goddess (-, $9.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Summer Glow (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tourmaline is a muted, medium-dark taupe-bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. Of the four, this one emphasized pores the most noticeably to me, and it’s one that needs a light hand to minimize the impact on the texture of the skin. The color payoff was good, while the texture was smooth in the pan and extremely easy to blend on the skin. I was able to get eight hours of wear out of this shade. Estee Lauder Modern Mercury (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nude Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Tawny Glow (P, $48.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Riviera (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moonstone is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a slightly sparkly, metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a fairly smooth, blendable texture–it wasn’t quite as creamy or as buttery compared to the other shades in the palette. It applied easily with a nice, diffused edge accomplished without trouble, and it seemed to be so bright applied that it didn’t emphasize my pores. LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cover FX Celestial (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Daylight (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Crystal Glare (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). NYX Moonbeam (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains three cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The formula on some of the more matte shades was very, very silky and soft, but they kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and often sheered out when blended–more so than some of Tarte’s past palettes. I noticed that some of the darker shades seemed to become more muted just a few minutes after applying, so it felt like I had to really pat and pack on some shades to get definition and depth out of them. I think the colors complement each other well, and I liked that there were some plummy hues thrown in with warmer, more orange-toned shades. I also felt like the cheek colors actually worked with the palette and its different color combinations, so the scheme is very cohesive. The palette is slated to be fully released on June 6th!

Sweet Tea is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a mostly matte finish, but there were a few gold sparkles in the product. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky feel in the pan, which was fairly blendable and lasted for eight hours on me. Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Happy Hour (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Lush Light Bronze (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain #03 (P, $53.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Scone (LE, $27.00) is lighter (85% similar). Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is lighter (80% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Does This Thing Really Work? is a muted, pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle that sits over a matte base. The sparkle doesn’t bind well with the color itself, so it doesn’t tend to stick well to the skin; the few bits that do migrate and move throughout the day or eventually fall off. The texture was smooth and soft, but it was somewhat powdery and looked a little dry on my normal-to-dry skin. It lasted for eight hours (not the 12-hours promised by the formula, though eight hours is similar to wear I get with most blush formulas). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Cruel Intentions (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Debbie Harry Blush (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay TMI (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). KIKO 112 Light Plum (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Rose (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC The Perfect Cheek (LE, $23.00) is lighter (85% similar). Stila Dusty Rose (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Sand Pink (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #310 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Empowering (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $27.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Wrapped Candy (P, $27.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Oasis (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gator Wings is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic, glittery finish. There are large glitter particles in this one, and they show up on the face a lot, but they do not look even, so sometimes they catch the light and look sparkly, while other times they don’t and look more like specks of dirt on the skin. This emphasized my skin’s natural texture quite a bit, so if that’s a deal-breaker, I would recommend using a very light touch and a fan brush, then tapping powder over it to minimize the effect. It wore well for seven and a half hours before turning patchy. Fenty Beauty Fire Crystal (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Precious Rocks (001) (LE, $59.00) is less shimmery, darker, less pigmented (90% similar). Tarte Sunlight (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold (LE, $68.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Gypsum (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (95% similar). Anastasia Butterscotch (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever 3 Gold Champagne (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Bombshell (P, $7.50) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Bloom (LE, $80.00) is darker (85% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P, ) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

#SFS is a light-medium, muted, peachy-pink with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too dusty or too firm. It wore well for seven hours before fading on me. Too Faced Christmas Blend (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #1 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kylie Cosmetics Seashell (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Baby Universe #2 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Codes Subtils #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Friendship File (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). NARS Goddess (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Viseart Pont des Arts (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Future (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Hello Kitty Apple Pie (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Custom Made (LE, ) is lighter (80% similar). Tarte Glitzy Blitzen (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Laura Mercier Pink Haze (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). Stila Metallic Peach (LE, $18.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Natural Peaches is a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff, but the consistency was so soft that it was dusty, which led to it sheering out when it was applied to the skin.

Dogman is a medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a dash of fine gold sparkle. The sparkles dust away almost immediately upon application, so I would consider this a matte brown overall. The formula was very smooth and finely-milled, but it kicks up excess product and sheers out on the skin. I noticed that it also faded after a few minutes to more of a muted brown, whereas initially it had more of a warm, burnt orange appearance. After that initial change, the color was good for seven hours. Zoeva Cheap Bar (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Top Notch (LE, $5.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Sassy Bun is a medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a looser consistency in the pan and was a bit drier to work with, so some of the shimmer seemed to separate from the base color when I blended it out. I think it would be better over a primer or with a slightly dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Viseart Minx #4 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Sippy Sippy is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle separates from the base color, so applied, it looks mostly matte, if not entirely matte. The sparkles were trapped in the brush or fell out when I blended out the color. It had a really soft, silky, and finely-milled feel to the powder itself, but it did sheer out against bare skin. It lasted for eight hours on me. NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Rust (Define) (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Haunting is a muted, light-medium mauve with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was dusty and prone to sheering out on the skin. I don’t think this works well without a good primer, and then it should be patted in place but minimal blending should occur or else the shimmer pulls away from the base color. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably. Clarins Silver Pink (05) (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Aglow (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Mancat is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though was not fully opaque, with a very soft, finely-milled texture that didn’t sheer out too much when I worked with it.

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) includes 14 eyeshadows that come in a mix of warmer neutrals and pops of pink/red. For a mostly matte palette, it actually applied quite well to bare skin, and I didn’t have issues blending out the majority of the shades. I was surprised, because a lot of the new matte eyeshadows in the palette feel much softer and smoother compared to most of Anastasia’s matte eyeshadow range that I’ve tried–they felt more like LORAC’s formula–but they still adhered exceptionally well to bare skin without sheering out or becoming patchy. The majority of the shades were pigmented and wore for seven to eight hours. As a note, it is packaged with a velvety exterior (like the original Urban Decay Naked palette), not the standard cardboard.

Tempera is a light beige with warm, peachy tones and a satiny sheen. It was incredibly soft and silky with great color payoff that applied well without sheering out too easily. This shade wore well for eight hours. Makeup Geek New Year's Eve (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Nano Nude #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Golden Ochre is a muted, medium-dark yellow with strong, olive tones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was very soft and blendable, though it was a smidgen dusty. It had good pigmentation that applied well and blended out easily. It lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

Vermeer is a bright, light peachy with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The consistency was extremely smooth, finely-milled, and soft, which resulted in some excess product getting kicked up in the pan, but I found it to apply well and stay in place, rather than sheering out (which is what I expected it to do)–it seemed like it almost “melted” in place. It didn’t emphasize dryness or texture, which is also something that typically occurs for me with this type of texture. The color payoff was mostly opaque, while the color itself lasted for eight hours before creasing. MAC Just Gleaming (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Buon Fresco is a muted, medium purple-mauve with a matte finish. I just reviewed this last week in single form (so this shade is also available individually should the palette not appeal to you), and the palette version is consistent. The texture was a little powdery despite still having good pigmentation and an ability to adhere to bare skin. It started to fade after seven and a half hours.

Antique Bronze is a slightly muted, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a smooth, lightly dusty consistency that feel or look dry on the skin, but it was softer and looser compared to some of Anastasia’s eyeshadows. The eyeshadow blended out with ease and wore well for eight hours on me. Dior Ambre Nuit #4 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). NARS Vengeance (LE, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Love Letter is a muted, dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque in one go, that was buildable on the lid. More importantly, it actually blended out fairly easily on even bare skin (and even better over a primer, of course) and didn’t become uneven or turn patchy. The texture was not quite as finely-milled compared to some of the other, lighter matte shades in the palette. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Cyprus Umber is deep, taupe-brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish.

Burnt Orange is a slightly muted, medium orange-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, very lightly dusty consistency that was more like the texture I expect with Anastasia’s more neutral-hued mattes, but it wasn’t quite as silky as other shades in the palette (not in a good/bad way, just something I noticed). This shade is also available individually. Anastasia Burnt Orange Matte (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Clay (LE, ) is darker (95% similar).

Primavera is a light-medium peachy-gold with warm undertones and a frosted, lightly metallic finish.

Red Ochre is a muted, medium-dark reddish-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a very silky-smooth texture that blended out really easily but did sheer out somewhat, so it is best built-up in order to get truer-to-pan color. I noticed slight fading after eight hours of wear. Tarte Dogman (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay En Fuego (P, $19.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Venetian Red is a medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. This one was the driest shade in the palette, though it wasn’t firm or stiff in the pan, but it kicked up excess product and tended to have a subtle grittiness to it (this does seem to be present in a lot of red shades, particularly when they’re more matte). It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that blended out nicely (that was a surprise!). The color started to fade after seven and a half hours.

Realgar is a slightly muted, medium-dark orange-brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish (there was just a hint of sheen to my eye).

MAC She’s a Model Eyeshadow x 9 Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, miniature-sized eyeshadows in a black compact with a clear lid. It’s an interesting mix of colors, because it contains seven neutrals, which run cooler compared to most neutral-hued shades. There are two pops of color–a brighter yellow and a blackened blue-teal–with the yellow being the harder shade to incorporate, at least for me. The quality is so-so with some shades under-performing and others being decent to good.

Fresh Blade is a pale, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with.

Gilded Lids is a slightly bright, medium yellow with warm undertones and a satiny sheen.

Fab Accent is a medium-dark beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish.

Dance in the Dark is a dark, taupe-brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a firmer consistency that required a denser brush/heavier hand to work with.

Not Basic Black is a medium-dark, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a barely-there satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a firmer press, which made it harder to work with overall. I wish this one would have blended out more easily.

She’s a Model is a blackened, bluish-teal with fine blue shimmer over a mostly matte finish. The consistency was on the dusty side, which made it prone to sheering out but also made it appear a bit drier and more uneven on the skin. It can be built-up to some degree, but it’s a shade best patted into place in small areas and then using a separate, fluffier brush to blend out the edges. It lasted for eight hours on me.
