Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Samson + Delilah Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of orange-y coral shades with matte finishes. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The darker shade lacked pigmentation and had a really firm consistency that made it hard to apply and blend out evenly on the skin. The lighter shade was more pigmented and more blendable, though it was dusty to work with. The two together are more blendable than the dark shade alone, but on my skin tone, it is difficult for the two together to show up noticeably as there is little coverage overall (paired with a lighter color in general, there’s little hope if it’s very sheer!), but I would expect some color to show up on fairer skin tones when mixed — the lighter shade will dominate.

Samson (Shade) is described as a “bright poppy pink.” It’s a medium, orange-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-sheer after several layers of product. The consistency was firm, chalky, and extremely dry on the skin, and the powder tended to clump as I tried to get product out of the pan. On the skin, the blush applied unevenly and had a tendency to stick in some places but not adhere much (or at all) to other areas. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Delilah (Light) is described as a “pale coral.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation but had a tendency to sheer out easily (so blending was good) as it was dusty and thin. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. LORAC Enchanted (LE, $23.00)(95% similar). Sephora Shame On You (01) (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Spring Flock (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar).

Tom Ford Disco Dust Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Disco Dust Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Disco Dust Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Disco Dust Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a mix of mid-tone neutrals with warmer undertones. There are two satins, one shimmer, and one glitter shade in the palette. The glitter shade was the most troublesome in the palette, as it had fall out while worn and a tendency to sheer out; I also found it harder to blend with the other shades as it had a denser consistency.

Disco Dust #1 is a light-medium, taupe-y brown with a highly reflective, glitter finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that had a “wet” feel to it, and it blended well on the skin on its own, but it didn’t blend as well with other powder eyeshadows (the sparkle would lift away). It lasted for seven hours with moderate fall out. LORAC Light Pewter (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Young Adonis (Eye Color) (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Coloured Raine Royal Highness (LE, $6.99) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Crush (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). MAC Day Gleam (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). NARS Stud (LE, $25.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Permanent Press #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Disco Dust #2 is a muted, medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a barely-there, satin finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it wasn’t opaque and was hard to layer as it had a slightly dusty consistency. The eyeshadow blended out really nicely, though. On me, the color started to fade after eight hours. Anastasia RTW (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Sherbert (LE, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Brown Sugar (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Milani Bella Cappuccino (03) (P, $4.49) is lighter (90% similar). MAC A Medley of Mauves #4 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Butterfudge (P, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Too Faced City Lights (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Viseart Taupe (P, ) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Disco Dust #3 is a medium, reddish-copper with a frosted finish. It had great color payoff with a fairly smooth consistency that blended out well on the lid. It stayed on for eight hours before fading slightly. City Color Yas! (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Imagine (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Oxidize (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Hocus Pocus (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Arrow (LE, $5.00) is cooler (90% similar).

(LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Siesta (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Trick (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Muse (LE, $12.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Clueless (P, $14.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Bling (LE, $5.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Mythical (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Disco Dust #4 is a dark, chocolaty brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that blended easily on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours before I noticed slight fading. Dior Parisian Sky #5 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Carbonized (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Tom Ford Honeymoon Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Honeymoon Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Honeymoon Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Honeymoon Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a warm-toned set of shades with a more frosted/metallic finish. All four shades performed well, had good pigmentation, blended out nicely, and lasted for eight to nine hours on me (without primer). The formula can be used wet or dry, with damp application yielding a slightly darker, smoother, and richer color overall that was sometimes more metallic. Tom Ford’s wet/dry formula doesn’t have a lot said about it, only that it can be applied dry for a “sleek and soft finish” or “wet for a bold and chromatic finish.” It performs well, and it’s easy to use, but the shades are very dupable, so if you’re looking for something unique to justify the price tag, I don’t think this it. If you’re focused on quality and like this combination of shades, it’s certainly worth a look.

According to Tom Ford corporate/PR, all of the new quads for spring are permanent. This is consistent with most of the counters/stores I called, though two said that they were all limited edition.

Honeymoon #1 is a medium, coppery orange with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had opaque coverage both dry and damp, but the damp application made it appear slightly darker and more metallic. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable. On me, the color lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Dreamer #2 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Penny Lane (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #7 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Friendspiration (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Siros (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Viseart Minx #4 (P, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Too Faced Bon Bon (Semi-Sweet Palette) (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Zoeva Pure Ganache (P, ) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Tan Lines (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Champagne Toast (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Beaux-Arts (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Sunset Seine (P, $5.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover #5 (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Stila Affection (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #5 (LE, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Anastasia Bellini (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Candlelit Dinner (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Honeymoon #2 is a medium-dark, coppery bronze with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a frosted sheen. Applied dry, it was opaque and a little lighter with less of a smooth sheen, whereas damp application pulled the brown tones out of it and made it appear smoother on. It definitely takes less product to get opaque coverage when used damp. It wore well for nine hours on me. MAC Handsome Prince (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Coil (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Gold Palette #5 (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Milani Fusion (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar).

MAC Divine Decadence (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Stila Cinnamon (LE, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I662 Amber Brown (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Malted Milk Ball (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Anastasia Gilded (LE, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Morphe 24/7 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Synergy (LE, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Coloured Raine Cinnamon Lust (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze Glow (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Honeymoon #3 is a medium-dark cranberry with warm, reddish-copper undertones and a frosted sheen. It was mostly opaque applied dry with a lighter, warmer look to it, while the damp application was deeper and more red-toned overall with a smoother sheen. The texture was blendable, smooth, and soft to the touch, and it was easy to use both dry and damp. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. Makeup Geek Showtime (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Enchanted (P, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Nauti (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

Coloured Raine Date Night (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #3 (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Raw Power (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC It's Not Easy Having a Good Time (LE, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Pink Sapphire (LE, $12.00) is cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever D826 Fig (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #3 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Stupid Autocorrect (LE, ) is lighter (80% similar). Tarte Dominate (P, ) is cooler (80% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #28 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Huda Beauty Royal (P, ) is cooler (80% similar). Tarte Scarlet (LE, $14.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Mademoiselle (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). Urban Decay Sonic (LE, $19.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Honeymoon #4 is a deep plum with soft, warm, brown undertones and a satin finish. It was the least shimmery shade, which is something the quad needed for better cohesion, I think. It was opaque both dry and damp, with the damp application just having a slightly deeper, richer look overall. On me, this shade stayed on well for nine hours before fading. Make Up For Ever ME828 Garnet Black (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Chanel Signe Particulier #3 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Fingerpaint Art (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of peachy shades. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The lightest shade comes the closest to delivering a decent blush that misses them mark on the 24-hour wear time but isn’t so far off the mark from the other claims, but the darker shade is still a disappointment.

Mickey (Shade) is described as a “baked peach.” It’s a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer pigmentation that built-up to semi-sheer color after three to four layers of product. The texture wasn’t quite as firm as the majority of the darker shades in the blush duos, but it wasn’t easy to work with. The very sheer coverage made it more forgiving on, as it was hard to see it anyway, so any patchiness wasn’t as noticeable at a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Fortunate (LE, $28.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Satisfy (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Shy One (LE, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Luster (P, $30.00) is brighter (90% similar). Tarte Fame (LE, $28.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Hourglass Dim Infusion (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Ginger (P, ) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Chanel Caresse (180) (LE, $45.00) is warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals The Summer Fling (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Illamasqua Lover (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Viseart Coral #1 (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Gretel (Light) (P, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Ripe Peach (LE, $32.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals The Spring Fling (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mallory (Light) is described as a “porcelain pink.” It’s a light pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (!) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency. This shade was easier to work with and blended out without turning patchy or putting up a fight. It did not show up visibly as a color on me, just a kind of mattified look (slightly powdery/chalky against my complexion), but the pigmentation was enough that it is more the result of my skin tone being a poor match for the color itself vs. lack of pigmentation. The blush lasted for seven hours. Kat Von D Nancy (Light) (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Conquest (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Physicians Formula Natural (P, $12.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Sex Appeal (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Luma (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Gold Palette #8 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever B110 (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Zoeva Yet to Come (P, ) is darker (85% similar).

MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Flamingo Park Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a mix of springtime pastels and bold brights. It’s not perfect, but it still surprised me, as they went on fairly well with decent or better pigmentation and blended out without major issues. In general, I find MAC eyeshadows perform a little better applied to the eye than initially swatched. It’s probably one of the more interesting palettes/quads MAC has put out in awhile, as they’ve done quite a few neutral-like ones in recent memory. I think the majority of the issues I experienced with the shades (detailed below) will be solved by using primer. I wish Sushi Flower and Elegant Friend had been swapped out for better performing shades, as those are the two big duds in the palette (Naturally Fabulous builds really well, so it’s workable for most application styles).

Flounce is described as a “chalky white pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light, pastel pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was a little thin but not dusty to work with. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours. LORAC Light Pink (P, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). Tarte Pink Outside the Box (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Plum (Highlight) (P, ) is lighter (95% similar).

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

Glamour Light is described as a “soft lemon yellow [with a Satin finish].” It’s a soft, creamy yellow with a satin sheen. It had fantastic pigmentation with a lightly dense, buttery texture that went on smoothly and evenly with little effort. On me, the color wore for eight hours before fading slightly. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Social Butterfly #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Sephora Whitewashed (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Hourglass Monochrome #1 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Moulder (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Mirage (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Flock & Roll is described as a “light pastel pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out well but didn’t look powdery on the skin.

Sushi Flower is described as a “pinky coral with pink shimmer [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a very subtle sheen. It was powdery and prone to sheering out as a result. The color payoff was semi-sheer at best, and without a white or tacky base, it didn’t get better with building or layering. On me, it wore for seven and a half hours before fading. MAC Fotos Y Recuerdos (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pretty Dainty (LE, $23.00) is darker (90% similar).

Bird’s Eye View is described as a “hot magenta [with a Satin finish].” It’s an intense, bright fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The pigmentation was incredibly rich and opaque, while the texture was smooth, silky, and blendable. It felt more like a Matte2 finish than a satin or matte finish. The color wore for eight and a half hours with minimal fading. Dior Bow (887) (P, $29.00) is more muted (95% similar). Colour Pop Fair Play (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Elegant Friend is described as a “dirty lavender [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark, silvery lavender with a frosted finish. The texture was slightly dry and dusty, so it would benefit greatly from a primer, as it doesn’t stick as well to bare skin on its own. It was blendable but only because it sheered out. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Time to Tango (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Rebel (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Naturally Fabulous is described as a “warm mid-tone brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a matte finish. The texture was soft but powdery, so the eyeshadow blended out well on the skin but required building in order to achieve true-to-pan color. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Coloured Raine Chocolate (P, $6.99) is darker (95% similar). Laura Mercier Rich Cocoa (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Bark (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar).

Weirdly Wonderful is described as a “royal blue with light blue pearl [with a Veluxe finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark blue with fine, blue sparkle. The texture is really dense, almost like a very packed-in cream product, and it had good pigmentation but the texture made blending harder. The edges always looked a little dry and jagged unless paired with something softer and more powdery to help blend it out. It stained the lid as well, just as a heads up. On me, it lasted for eight hours before creasing slightly. Kat Von D Nile (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). NYX Kiss in Casablanca (P, $4.50) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of copper and peach. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” As you might have guessed from the last three reviews, results were not impressive. The darker shade was sheer and difficult to blend on the skin, while the lighter shade was less firm in the pan and more powdery, so it was easier to blend but was still sheer. Neither shade made it in the realm of 24 hour wear. The two mixed together (just swirled with a brush) is better than either alone, but blending was still a pain and required an excessive amount of layers for it to show up for photos on my skin tone.

Hansel (Shade) is described as a “terracotta.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage and was buildable to semi-opaque after five layers of product (the heavy swatch pictured was five layers). The texture is incredibly firm and packed into the pan, which makes getting product out of the pan difficult. The firmer texture translates into a thinner, harder-to-blend consistency on the skin, not just swatched, and it tended to look splotchy applied. The color lasted for seven and a half hours, which isn’t bad, but it is bad in the light of a 24-hour wear claim. Chanel Jersey (80) (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Milani Coral Beams #2 (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Cantaloupe (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Bronze Burst #2 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Colour Pop Stryke (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). NARS Gilda (P, $30.00) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $23.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Quarters (P, $8.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar).

Colour Pop Bonus (DC, $8.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gretel (Light) is described as an “apricot.” It’s a light-medium pop of peach with warm, orange tones and a matte finish. It was sheer, and it was difficult to intensify as the consistency was powdery and on the chalky side. The color blended out a lot better than the darker shade, there just wasn’t much of it that was visible on my skin tone–what you see is eight passes of product and I can almost imagine there’s a pink tone to my cheek area. It lasted for eight hours. Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S300 (P, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Prism (P, $23.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Dainty (LE, $28.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Zoeva Shy Beauty (P, $11.80) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Sunny Surprise (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Angelic (LE, $28.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Kat Von D Mickey (Shade) (P, ) is darker (85% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
