Tisse Mademoiselle #2 is described as a "satin gold." It's a muted, yellowed beige with a pearly shimmer. It may be hard to see in the swatch, as this color is close to my skin tone, but it had good pigmentation. The texture was silky and finely-milled, so it was blendable and easy to apply on the lid. It wore well for nine hours before I saw slight creasing. YSL Avant Garde #2 (P) is more shimmery. YSL Saharienne #1 (P) is warmer. Clarins The Essentials #1 (LE) is darker. Kat Von D Countess (LE) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Broken (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #2 (LE) is yellower. MAC Ricepaper (P, $15.00) is brighter. MAC Femme-Fi (LE, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Pure, long-lasting pigments ensure an intense colour effect while the soft, smooth texture allows for effortless application.
