Urban Decay Tyranny is a very warm-toned, light brown with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Tyranny is described as a "warm brown matte." It's a medium-dark, orange-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft without being powdery. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before I saw signs of fading. LORAC Unspoken (P) is darker. MAC Rose Cloud (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Glasswing (P) is lighter. Makeup Geek Latte (P, $5.99) is similar. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is more shimmery. Makeup Geek Creme Brulee (P, $5.99) is lighter. Urban Decay Beware (LE, $18.00) is very similar--a touch darker at most. Inglot #357 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
