Swatches: Urban Decay Rockstar, MAC Jaunty, Ricepaper + Copperplate

MAC Jaunty ($16 for 1.5g, Limited Edition) is a neutral yellow beige shade with a hint of gold and a shimmery finish. I thought it was going to be similar to many other neutral eyeshadows that I have, such as Jest and Naked Lunch, but they are much pinkier and peachier. Ricepaper is more yellow, lighter and brighter. Warming Trend has a stronger and prettier gold sheen to it. When worn on my eyes, I can definitely see a difference between Jaunty and Warming Trend up close in the mirror; however, from a distance, they look quite similar. (The swatch on my arm doesn`t do Jaunty any justice. It actually looks much prettier and pulls more gold when applied on the lids with a dense brush. If you apply it with a fluffy brush and a light hand, then it`ll look more brown.)
MAC Ricepaper ($15 in pot form or $11.50 in refill pan for 1.5g) is a light yellow beige with a shimmery finish. Jaunty is slightly darker and more gold. I love using both as an all-over-the-lid shade and I don`t prefer one over the other. Many people love using Ricepaper as a highlight, but it`s too yellow for my brow bone and the inner corner of my eyes. I prefer to use Shroom when I need to brighten my look because it`s a true beige shade.
MAC Copperplate ($15 in pot form or $11.50 in refill pan for 1.5g) is a medium grey with a matte finish. I used to fill in my brows with Espresso, which looked fine under artificial lighting, but it looked too brown in natural lighting. So, I decided to get Copperplate because alot of people swear by this. When I swatched it at first, I thought it was going to look too light and grey on my brows, but when I actually applied it with my Royal & Langnickel BC530 brush (, it looked so natural, even in natural lighting. It just blended right into my brows and stayed put all day (without a primer). Copperplate has officially replaced Espresso as a brow filler.
Urban Decay Rockstar ($18 for 1.5g) is a deep eggplant shade with a red undertone and a shimmery finish. It`s the only shade that I had trouble working with. It has great pigmentation, but it can look slightly brown and muddy if I over blend it. I end up having to reapply it to bring back the purple tone and the intensity of the color. Also, I did experience some minor fallouts during application. I think I either got a dud or maybe the color just doesn`t work well on my NC30/35 skin tone. Regardless, I will still buy more of their new eyeshadows because all the other ones that I have tried are amazing. The price doesn`t turn me off because the quality is well worth it. The old formulation of the eyeshadows were already so buttery, pigmented and long-lasting, but the new formulation feels slightly more smooth. Also, the new packaging allows you to pop out the eyeshadow and put it into the Urban Decay customizable palette. Other than that, they`re pretty much the same. I just wish they sold refill pans because I usually depot all my eyeshadows and put them into my Check out this for more pictures. mac makeup beauty
