Urban Decay Heads Will Roll is a very cool-toned, medium teal with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Heads Will Roll is a bright, medium blue-teal with cool undertones and a gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It is mostly matte in reality, as the sparkle gets lost and drops during initial application (or gets stuck between the brush bristles). It is silky and finely-milled but dusty and thin, so the color does sheer out when applied to the skin without a lightly tacky base--again, the brand's own primer didn't amplify the color much more than it appeared on bare skin, but it did make it appear more even and less dry on. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Robin's Egg (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever S234 Azure Blue (DC, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). ColourPop Runnin' Thru the Six (LE, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). ColourPop Ibiza (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). ColourPop Ice Cold (PiP, $4.50) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever D236 Lagoon Blue (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Natasha Denona Powder Blue (84V) (PiP, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). KVD Beauty Hyperballad (LE, ) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Coloured Raine Energy Boost (LE, $6.99) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar).
