I did a look using this eyeshadow here

Note: Urban Decay Eyeshadows cost $17.00 for 1.5 grams at Nordstrom, Beauty.com, Ulta and Sephora. Mac Eyeshadows in pan form cost $11.00 for 1.5 grams (some of the eyeshadows have 1.3 grams) and cost $16 in pots. Stars Makeup Haven (SMH) raised their price from $4.95 to $6.00 for 1.3 grams. Coastal Scents (CS) eyeshadows cost $4.49 for 1.3 grams. ELF single round pan eyeshadows cost $1. The empty 28 pan palette can be purchased from Coastal Scents for $9.95.

ELF eyeshadows get dusty and crumbly in the pan, which causes me to hit pan faster than Mac eyeshadows. They are also not as pigmented as MAC eyeshadows and I have to layer it and use a primer in order to get good color payoff. I also get alot of fallouts down my cheeks when I apply it. 

The formula of Urban Decay eyeshadows is different than Mac, with the exception of some Mac eyeshadows. Urban Decay eyeshadows are much smoother and buttery, and the shimmery eyeshadows look much prettier than the Mac shimmery eyeshadows. However, I do get some fallouts when I apply certain Urban Decay eyeshadows (the ones with the microglitters), but I don't get as much fallouts as I do with my SMH & CS eyeshadows.

Inglot discontinued their round pan refill eyeshadows; however, the round pan individual eyeshadows are still available and cost $12. The square pan refill eyeshadows are also still available. Each square pan eyeshadow contains 2.3 grams - 2.7 grams and a 10 square pan eyeshadow palette retails for $60. (I got the price information from Inglot's main website. Bloggers are reporting different prices for in-store and online purchases. The prices are inconsistent, so it's best to check your nearest Inglot store for prices if you plan on purchasing in-store.)
