Editor's Review

Goldmine is a light-medium gold with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen with some larger, chunkier sparkle. The sparkly bits tended to pull away from the base, so they ended up falling out during application or later on during wear. The consistency had a denser, chunkier feel to it, and I found a flatter, synthetic brush seemed to apply the eyeshadow best. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading. ColourPop Rule Breaker (PiP, $4.50) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Heaven Loves You (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). ColourPop Take It Again (LE, $4.50) is cooler (95% similar).

ColourPop The Gemini (P, $4.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Dwollahs (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Honey (DC, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Ice Cream (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Gilded Gold (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Pot of Gold (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Isles (Eye Color) (LE, ) is more muted (90% similar). Viseart Buillion (GPV2 #12) (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Gold Leaf (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Just wanted to point out that the quality of the shadow is very different depending on which palette you get. The one in the Vice Ltd reloaded is actually really nice, creamy and pigmented whereas the one in the Full Spectrum palette is a pale mess that's pratically nothing but fallout. I'd be curious to know if anyone else noticed that too?
