MAC Missing My Baby Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “light pinky nude beige [with a Matte finish].” It’s a soft, light-medium, pink with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with. I was surprised that it did not darken too much on bare lids, nor did it become dry or patchy. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours. bareMinerals Beautiful (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Frisco (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). YSL Paris #2 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Plum (Base) (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Pink Sands (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Rose de Mai (P, $29.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Say I Do (DC, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

MAC Fotos Y Recuerdos Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright warm pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, medium pink with warm, yelow undertones and barely-there gold shimmer. It looked more matte on the lid than satin, as there wasn’t much shimmer or sheen, and the dustier, thinner texture made it look drier and flatter, like a matte finish, on the eye. The pigmentation was semi-sheer, and it was very prone to sheering out and applying unevenly. I would recommend a tacky base underneath this one to help it pop and apply better. It lasted for six and a half hours before fading noticeably. MAC Sushi Flower (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S812 Tea Pink (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Chanel Tisse Paris #3 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). NARS Douce France #2 (LE, $25.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). LORAC Bloody Mary (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M806 Antique Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Selena Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “intense pearly violet [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a slightly brightened, medium-dark purple with warm, pinkish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation that covered well, and it adhered nicely to bare skin. The texture was firmer in the pan, so I would recommend using a denser or firmer brush with this one. The eyeshadow blended out without trouble on the skin, and it wore for eight hours before creasing very faintly. Too Faced Jingle Berry (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana #10 (LE, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever I-90 (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Amethyst (P, $14.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Violet Impact (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Wham Bam (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

LORAC Meditation (LE, $19.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC No Me Queda Mas Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “warm dusty brown [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warmer, yellowish undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, not too thin or too dense, and easy to work with on bare skin. It blended out beautifully and applied with true-to-pan coverage, as it was very pigmented. This shade lasted for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Tan Lines (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Girl's Night (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Ciate On Fire (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Rebel (P, )(100% similar). Sephora Cocoa (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Milk Chocolate (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

MAC Is It the Beat Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep black [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep, cool black with an almost bluish/gray cast paired with a matte finish. The consistency was smooth, very finely-milled, but there was denseness to it that made it adhere well to the skin. It was far, far superior to MAC’s Carbon in the permanent range and reminded me more of the feel of Typographic, though not quite as silky. It had good pigmentation, but you could still use just the barest tap and build up color if you wanted to darken the crease and be able to blend it out without it turning patchy. It wore well for eight hours on me. Kat Von D Jet (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M100 Black (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Smashbox Big Night (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Jet Black (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Structured Satin (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Punk (P, )(95% similar).
