Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo
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). Sephora Passionate (23) (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Coppertone (P, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Make You Mine (P, $23.50) is darker (85% 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). MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, brighter (85% similar). NARS Liberte (-, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented (80% 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.

Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes Prismatique Eyes

Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes Prismatique Eyes
Surratt Beauty Glamour Eyes Prismatique Eyes

Surratt Beauty Prismatique Eyes ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a two-part compact that twists to reveal a glittery, more powder-like eyeshadow on the lower level, and then on the upper level, the lid twists off and reveals a cream eyeshadow. The brand states that the cream eyeshadow is a long-wearing, “water-proof shadow base” that can be used underneath the glittery eyeshadow or as an eyeliner. The glittery eyeshadow is called a “prismatic top coat.” The two only work well when used together, but neither works that well alone. Together, they’re pretty, but the cream eyeshadow is fussier than ideal for a cream-based product, so blending and getting even coverage were quite challenging.

Based on the fact that the cream eyeshadow is the long-wearing part and has the most claims, I rated this as a standalone product plus how well it did hold the glitter eyeshadow, but the wear considers it on its own as well as when worn with the glitter eyeshadow. On the other hand, the glitter eyeshadow’s wear is based on how long it wears over the cream base (there seem to be next to no claims made for the eyeshadow, other than calling it a top coat and it designed to be very sparkly!). The cream eyeshadow worked decently as an eyeliner without the glittery eyeshadow on top of it, but on the lid, it had a tendency to crease before it had a chance to set due to a longer dry-down time. If I applied the glittery eyeshadow on top of the cream base as it was drying down, the glitter was fairly locked on and seemed to prevent any initial creasing. Then the whole layer cake of product lasted for nine hours before I noticed faint creasing. The cream eyeshadow was fairly crease-resistant, but the longer dry down time meant keeping the lid close and lightly patting the cream eyeshadow back into place after 15-20 seconds until it was fully dried at about 45 seconds. I recommend a flat, slightly narrow, synthetic brush to pat on the glitter eyeshadow for best results.

The glitter eyeshadow will get everywhere without the cream base to lock on, and the glitter seemed like flecks, which were a pain to remove from the skin (it is always amusing that glitter won’t stick to the lid, but it’ll stick to your nose no problem!). The cream eyeshadow was generally pigmented but had a fair amount of slip to it without being really thick, so it tended to look patchy and uneven on the lid, especially the more I blended out the edge. It is the type of product that is easier to use as a base on the lid and then use traditional powder eyeshadow to do crease work. The packaging felt flimsy to me, and I’ve too often swiveled open the lower level and nicked the edge of the pan as a result. I had consistent results across the three shades I purchased inasmuch as wear and application went, but this particular duo had the least pigmented cream shade–but since these are intended to be layered on the lid, it did not really make a difference once the glitter eyeshadow as patted on top. It was, of course, noticeably sheer and even more muted on than in the pot when used as an eyeliner.

Glamour Eyes (Cream) is described as a “royal plum.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark lavender purple with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer, streaky coverage unless really piled on, but this made it extremely difficult for the product to dry down evenly without gathering into the creases. When used as a base, I really did not find it to be an issue that the coverage was sheerer or uneven, as patting the glitter on top hid it entirely while still acting as an adhesive for the flecks of glitter. MAC Nearing Dark (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Fairytale (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Motown (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NARS Charade #2 (P, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Mulberry (LE, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Purple Haze (DC, $16.00) is cooler, better quality (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glamour Eyes (Glitter) is described as a “brilliant blue-violet duo-chrome.” It is more of a medium, pink-mauve base with blue-to-violet shift with a very glittery, chunky consistency. I think the chunkiness is actually due to how soft the product is, so a lot more product gets dislodged from the surface of the pan than you’d expect, so a very light touch is best. I might even consider using a slightly dampened brush as well. It looks cooler-toned once layered over the cream eyeshadow, and you can start to see the duochrome come through, but on its own, it just seemed like a warmer shade with a lot of glitter. Urban Decay Horizon (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Lancome Garden Rose (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Passion (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Smoky Mauve (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Glitterrock (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Halo (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Parallel Universe (Left) (LE, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #7 (P, $33.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Anastasia Blossom (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Too Faced Mauvelous (LE, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Where the Night Is Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow ($20.00 for 0.28 oz. or $5.00 for each 0.07 oz. shade) is a collection of four Super Shock Shadows that can be purchased a “set,” but you can also purchase each shade alone. There’s no monetary advantage to purchasing the set; the only difference is you would get the packaging that reflects the collaboration and collection’s name. It’s a nice selection of shades, and all four shades performed well for me and were consistent with the formula I’ve come to know and love. If you’re unfamiliar with the Super Shock Shadow formula, it is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

Midnight is described as a “black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top in a metallic finish.” It’s a blackened olive green with warm undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. The texture was lightly emollient and blended out well without turning patchy. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear (no primer), but I did have a few stray glittery bits underneath my eye. Charlotte Tilbury Veruschka (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #4 (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D308 Aquatic Khaki (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Gabon (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #24 (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Hammered (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Color Field #5 (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I328 Bronze (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #2 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Eureka (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Crowbar (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Sephora Hidden Treasure (114) (LE, $13.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Inglot #419 (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Porter is described as a “warm burgundy with gold multi-dimensional gold glitter on top [of] a metallic finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark cranberry with hints of warm, pinky-copper tones and subtle gold sparkle. The texture had a really creamy, smooth feel to it, and it applied with true-to-pot color with full coverage. It blends out with ease and doesn’t look patchy or faded. On me, I didn’t have any fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Lectra (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Heritage Rouge (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Hidden Motive (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). City Color It's a Girl (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Plummed (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Framboise (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Brazenly (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). YSL Scandal #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Telepathy is described as a “bright gold with a green undertone in an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a bright, light-medium yellow gold with an almost “cool” undertone (compared to most golds, which are often orange-based) paired with a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied beautifully and was still in pristine condition after ten hours of wear. Kat Von D Prophet (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Tryst (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora David (LE, ) is more muted (85% similar). Makeup Geek Fortune Teller (P, $9.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Sephora Bronze (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #3 (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Hourglass Color Field #2 (P, ) is lighter (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Weenie is described as a “pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with full coverage and a creamy, moderately emollient texture (it felt “wetter” than most ColourPop eyeshadows). It sheered out just a wee bit when applied, but it layered well if you needed pristine, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for ten hours. Coloured Raine Who Me (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D708 Pinky Copper (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Reward Yourself (LE, $16.50) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Quite Yummy! (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). City Color Homecoming Queen (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Viseart Petit Pro #7 (LE, ) is darker, more muted (85% similar).

Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette ($56.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twenty eyeshadows that celebrate the brand’s 20-year history; some shades are from many years ago (and have been discontinued for awhile), others are part of the current range, and a few are new to the palette. I think it’s a solid palette overall, but it’s one that begs for primer. I have discovered that over the last year or two that more often than not, Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes need primer to function well, whereas in the past, I did not have that much trouble using them without primer, but a lot of the more recent iterations have been thinner, dustier, or looser as a whole, which makes them prone to sheering out without a smooth base to adhere to.

Suspend is described as a “greige-brown matte.” It’s a muted, medium-dark tuape brown with cooler over-tones and warmer undertones. It had a matte finish with good pigmentation and a soft, blendable consistency. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. NARS Quai des Brumes (Right) (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Exhale (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Smashbox Smoke (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Stila Fog (LE, $18.00) is lighter (90% similar). Persona Maverick (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Fuze (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Persuade (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Haze (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Undercover (P, ) is more shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Adios (LE, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Saleos (P, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Dance in the Dark (LE, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Permanent Press #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). Urban Decay Defy (LE, $19.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Soot #2 (DC, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). theBalm Dig It (LE, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Oil Slick is described as a “black matte with silver micro-glitter.” It’s a medium-dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and silver sparkle. The sparkle doesn’t bind with the base, so little of it adheres to the lid without an adhesive base. The color payoff was weaker, while the texture was drier and crumbly. The color wore for seven hours before fading. Colour Pop Friskie (P, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Noite (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Buxom Black Lab (P, $18.00)(90% similar). Make Up For Ever D104 Black Diamond (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Lava (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). CoverGirl Molten Black (300) (P, $4.99) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Cinderfella (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals Penthouse (LE, ) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Blacklit (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Roadstripe is described as a “iridescent white with blue-violet shift.” It’s a bright, iridescent white with a bluish-violet sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a fairly smooth, firmer consistency. It is a lot less powdery compared to the version that came out last year. It wore well for seven hours before fading. Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum (Left) (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 10 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill Ice Angel (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Le Marais (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Cosmic (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Hope (LE, $5.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Unicorn (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Sick of Swimmin' (LE, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar). L'Oreal Petite Perle (P, $5.99) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Sephora Early Frost (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sugar Rush (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Moon Phase (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gash is described as a “metallic brick red.” It’s a rich, medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented and had a really smooth, buttery consistency that blended nicely. This shade started to fade after eight hours. Urban Decay Afterparty (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Drift (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Raw Power (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Blazing Gold #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Jouer Rouge (P, ) is lighter (85% similar). LORAC Treasure (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Sonic (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Seeker (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC It's Not Easy Having a Good Time (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Claretluxe #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Salazen Grum (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Midnight Cowboy is described as a “pink champagne with shimmer with silver glitter.” It’s a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It’s supposed to have silver glitter, but mine seems to have next to none, which was odd as this shade typically does have noticeable glitter. The lack of glitter means less fall out and makes it easier to use, but I know that the permanent version of this shade is noticeably different as a result. The color wore well for eight hours. Cle de Peau Golden Lace #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Sweet Eyes (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Dior Fairy Golds #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Illamasqua Slink (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Posey (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D716 Crystalline Papaya (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Milani Champagne Toast (P, $6.49) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Koosh (LE, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

501 is described as a “deep metallic blue with copper micro-glitter.” It’s a medium-dark, cobalt blue with a pearly sheen and fine copper sparkle. As you might expect, the sparkly bits don’t bind well with the underlying color, so they get lost in the brush or drop on the lid when applying, unless you pack it on over a tacky base. The texture was slightly dry and harder to blend out. This one stained my lids slightly for about 36 hours after application, and it also did so even with a primer (UDPP). The color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. Make Up For Ever D222 Night Blue (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Etiquette (DC, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Danger (LE, $19.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Entombed (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Cobalt (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Swing (116) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Kimono (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Stila Denim (LE, $18.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Stila Sapphire (LE, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar).

Shallow is described as a “pale taupe-silver satin.” It’s a light-medium, silvery pewter with neutral-to-cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It was silky and smooth to the touch, but it was to the point where it was also dusty and prone to sheering out on the skin. I would highly recommend using this with a good primer underneath to maximize intensity and ease of application. The color started to fade after seven hours. Chanel Tisse Riviera #3 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Oyster (LE, $30.00) is cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #3 (P, ) is darker (90% similar).

Laced is described as a “pinky-taupe matte.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff with a firmer consistency in the pan so it wasn’t powdery, but it was harder to build-up on the skin. The color wore well for seven hours on me.

Hot Pants is described as a “pearly medium pink.” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish.

Mildew is described as a “deep metallic green shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark, olive green with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that gave it some fall out during application and seemed to make it wear a little shorter (at seven hours). Again, this one would greatly benefit from a primer. It felt less dense compared to the permanent version I have. Cle de Peau Modern Era #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Smog is described as a “deep coppery bronze shimmer.” It’s a rich, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a frosted sheen.

Misdemeanor is described as a “deep olive green matte with green micro-shimmer.” It’s a muted, bluish-gray with cool undertones and fine shimmer over a matte finish. It looks more like a semi-matte finish on the lid. It had semi-sheer coverage with a dusty consistency that helped it blend on the lid, but it always looked sheer. It needed a tackier base to help it adhere without sheering out. It lasted for six hours before fading noticeably on me.

Asphyxia is described as a “hyacinth shimmer with blue shift.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-lavender with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that didn’t build up much beyond semi-opaque at most. The texture was thinner and a little dusty to work with, which may have been why pigmentation was lacking. It lasted for six and a half hours. LORAC Smoothie (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Stars 'n' Rockets (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar).

Acid Rain is described as a “pale yellow-green shimmer with green shift.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed chartreuse with warm undertones and a golden sheen. It had good pigmentation but was somewhat dusty to work with, so I found it would sheer out readily over bare skin. The texture is blendable, though, and over a primer, its deficiencies are almost unnoticeable. The color wore well for seven and a half hours.

Moonflower is described as a “metallic rose-gold with gold micro-shimmer.” It’s a medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish.

UV-B is described as a “bright blue with violet shift.” It’s a medium-dark, violet blue with strong, cool undertones and a soft, frosted sheen.

Goldmine is described as a “bright metallic gold.” It’s a bright, medium, yellow gold with strong, brownish tones and a sparkling, metallic sheen.

Twice Baked is described as a “rich brown satin with gold micro-glitter.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine shimmer. Oddly, this looked quite shimmery in the pan, and in the past, the shimmer has been more noticeable when I’ve used this color (not this version), but this was almost more of a semi-matte in practice as there was little more than a subtle sheen overall. It had good pigmentation and lasted for eight hours otherwise, but the way it looked in the pan, the way I know it to look in past iterations, and how it looked applied were at odds with each other.

Anonymous is described as a “pale peachy cream matte.” It’s a light, creamy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. I actually thought this was smoother and more pigmented than the previous version of this shade that I have. It’s so soft and silky that it does get a little dusty/powdery when working with it, and it may not work on all skin tones as a result. It wore well for almost eight hours for me.

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette ($21.00 for .018 oz.) includes six neutral eyeshadows in a slim, cardboard palette with a mirror on the inside. I could see it being an easy go-to or travel palette for those who like warmer neutrals and typically use a primer when they apply their eyeshadow. It’s not a particularly unique or the best performing palette, but it’s solid and a decent value.

Whisper is described as a “light pink.” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nice color payoff with a soft, silky consistency that was a smidgen powdery but very blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Cozy (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Crush is described as a “taupe shimmer.” It’s a sparkling, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a metallic finish and chunkier sparkle. The texture was drier and dusty with some of the sparkles coming loose from the base color, which made it messy to work with and to apply. The color was prone to sheering out on the skin, so I would highly recommend a primer or possibly a creamier, tackier base to minimize fall out with this one.

Heartbreaker is described as a “brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark chocolaty brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. It blended out well and applied without issue. The color lasted for eight hours on me. It stayed on for seven and a half hours but had fall out. NARS Bengali (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Coco (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).

Wink is described as a “light mauve.” It’s a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was slightly dusty, but it blended nicely on the skin. It’s the type of texture that may not work well on drier skin types without a primer. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

BFF is described as a “plum.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned plummy burgundy with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency. This shade was a little patchy to blend out on my eyelid without primer, but I think a primer would help it in that respect. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) contains a pinky-plum and a light pink, both with a matte finish. The lighter shade performs better than the dark shade (which is pretty terrible), and if you mix the two together, the more powdery light pink goes a long way to making the darker shade less frustrating to you use. 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.” Neither shade is highly pigmented nor do they wear any longer than most blushes (seven to eight hours) in my experience.

Morticia (Shade) is described as a “rich fig.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark pink-plum with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It was sheer with a dry, chalky consistency; it’s like the powder comes off of the surface but clumps together without adhering to the skin well, which resulted in a very patchy, uneven application. It’s very subtle on me after three passes of product applied to the skin. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. MAC Fever (P, $23.00) is more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). MAC Hot Nights (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Neolita (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Rendezvous (P, $10.00) is cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #510 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Cheerio (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Berry (LE, $26.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Becca Nightingale (P, $32.00) is darker, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Plum (LE, ) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Goulue (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gomez (Light) is described as a “orchid petal.” It’s a muted, light pink with cool, lavender tones and a matte finish. It was semi-sheer and buildable to semi-opaque coverage after three to four layers. The texture was softer and smoother, which made it easier to work with. It was moderately blendable and didn’t look powdery on the skin, though it sheers out. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. When mixed with the darker shade, it at least makes it somewhat usable. Makeup Geek Promise Ring (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Clyde (Light) (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever B202 (P, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek First Love (DC, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Threesome (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Carousel (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). NYX Pastel Chic (P, $6.50) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Mistinguette (LE, $30.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever B200 (P, $23.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
