BUXOM No Faux EyeshadowBUXOM No Faux Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an "iridescent snakeskin." It's a brightened, medium-dark reddish brown with green-teal shimmer, so it has a multi-faceted appearance and flashes cooler, greener and then warmer and redder. I felt like the duochrome effect was particularly noticeable with this one, even on the lid, without having to contort yourself into weird positions. The texture was really dense and "thick," even though it is a powder, and it applied well on the skin with smooth, even color that was easily blended out. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. Urban Decay Lounge (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Ardency Inn Peacock (DC, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).
