Makeup Geek Moondust Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Moondust Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Moondust Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic silver taupe.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned taupe with a frosted, metallic finish. It had nice color payoff, and the texture was soft, smooth, and buttery. The texture was easy to work with, so I could easily see this being a go-to neutral. This shade wore well for nine hours before showing signs of fading. MAC Silver Dawn (LE, $19.50) is less metallic. Urban Decay Vaporize (LE, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Pastelluxe #5 (P) is similar. Edward Bess Dusk (P, $30.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Nautica Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “midnight blue shade with shimmery finish.” It’s a medium-dark navy blue with a pearly sheen. The texture was on the drier, stiffer side, so the pigmentation was good but not as intense as the shade looked in the pan. I saw some fading after eight hours of wear. Chanel Apparition (LE, $36.00) is a cream product. Disney by Sephora Midnight (LE) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #2 (P) is similar. Urban Decay Occupy (LE, $18.00) is more muted. MAC Thru the Night (DC, $21.00) is darker. bareMinerals Climax (P) is brighter. Make Up For Ever #81 (P, $20.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Ocean Breeze Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic deep green/blue.” It’s a dark, navy blue with a frosted, sparkly finish. It’s a warmer take on blue compared to Nautica. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was easy to work with on the eye and blended well, but it was a bit drier. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before starting to decline. Urban Decay Prank (LE, $18.00) is more matte. Dior Cosmos (281) (P, $30.00) is a cream product. Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Lust #4 (LE) is darker. Illamasqua Android (P, $25.50) is much darker. See comparison swatches.

I have the UD Anarchy facecase and Vaporize is one of my new favorite colors. It is incredibly versatile and it blends well with a variety of colors (golds, browns, silvers, deeper greens, etc). I can see why Moondust got a recommend from you! I like to use UD Mushroom eyeliner with it, it’s a great complement.

Yay! I skipped Silver Dawn from Magnetic Nude because I just couldn’t bring myself to pay $20 for a single eyeshadow, but I saw that Smoke and Diamonds was similar and that Moondust was MUG’s dupe, so I decided to purchase Moondust instead of Silver Dawn. Glad it is on your dupe list!

Hehe, the shadows here are nice, but it was the big list of epic eye looks that impressed me most in this post! You’re a wizard with shadows, Christine! 😀

LOL! Thank you, Sylirael! I was trying to review them as I worked through, but then I got behind and it was easier to go in alphabetical order… so all the looks just get posted with them!

I completely agree with this! Gorgeous eye looks! Moondust is on my list–it was the one color that drew me to the UD Anarchy case.

Christine, I can’t help but think in the eye look with Liquid Gold in the lash line–it reminds me a little of Urban Decay Honey 24/7 eye liner–even though one is powder and one is cream. Can you comment on how similar the two shades are?

I really like the one with Cinderella and Burlesque!

The new shadows you mentioned are also very nice. I’ve been looking for a blue similar to a look I saw at the globes. These look like they might work!
