Makeup Geek Simply Marlena is a slightly warm-toned, dark fuchsia with a satin finish. It is a discontinued eyeshadow that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.06 oz.
Makeup Geek Simply Marlena Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a "rosy pink with purple undertone and gold flecks." It's a medium-dark, fuchsia pink with cool, bluish undertones and a satin finish--mostly matte with a smattering of very fine shimmer. The eyeshadow had good pigmentation, but it was on the powdery side, so it tends to have a fair amount of fall out when you apply it, and it does seem to sheer out a little too easily on the lid. If you normally use a primer, you probably won't notice. On me, it wore well for eight hours. Chanel Exaltation (108) (P, $29.50) is lighter, matte. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #2 (LE) is similar. Sugarpill Birthday Girl (P, $12.00) is purpler. Sugarpill Dollipop (P, $12.00) is more matte, brighter. Inglot #362 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
