MAC I Like 2 Watch Dazzleshadow ($20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a "mid-tone brown with gold sparkles." It's an almost green-tinged gold set over a warmer, copper-brown base with a sparkling, metallic finish. Applied dry, it is sheer and dusty, which made it hard to work with as it diffused everywhere and tended to fade faster. Applied damp, it was much more opaque and smoother, so it adhered better to the lid and wore for seven and a half hours with moderate fall out. YSL Avant Garde #4 (P, ) is less shimmery. Lit Cosmetics Rich & Famous (P, $12.95) is more shimmery. Too Faced Twinkle (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed (P, $6.80) is less shimmery. NARS Etrusque (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker. Urban Decay Stargazer (P, $20.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Spell #1 (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, lighter.
