MAC Slow/Fast/Slow Dazzleshadow ($20.00 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a "bronze with red sparkles." It's a muted, rosy brown with copper and pink sparkles. The texture was noticeably grittier and more prone to looking "dry" on the skin--almost like the formula was separating the sparkles from the color base as it was applied to the skin, which made it harder to work with dry (and it lasted for five and a half hours before creasing). When I used it damp, it was a little easier to apply, though the best way was to pat it in place with a fairly dampened brush, and this helped it to last seven hours before fading. There was a lot of fall out dry, a fair amount damp, and then minimal (and ten-hour wear) with a glitter adhesive. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $42.00) is less shimmery, cooler. L'Oreal Amber Rush (P, $7.99) is darker. Tarte Rose to the Top (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Chanel Laurier Rose (127) (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery. Chanel New Moon (97) (LE, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker. Urban Decay Dive (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Toxic (LE, $18.00) is warmer.
