Eyeshadow Swatches & Comparisons: Pink Eyeshadows (Mac, Inglot, Urban Decay, Stars Makeup Haven, Coastal Scents)


First Row: Mac Perky
Second Row: Mac Ego (Limited Edition), Urban Decay SWF, Inglot Pearl 431
Third Row: Mac Pink Venus, Mac Da Bling, Stars Makeup Haven Cat's Meow, Mac Swish
Fourth Row: Inglot AMC Shine 48, Mac Sunset B (Limited Edition), Urban Decay Woodstock, Coastal Scents S06

Mac Ego (LE)beautiful baby pink with 
a soft shimmery finish that is not too frosty; buttery texture

Urban Decay SWF - baby pink; similar to Ego, 
except SWF is more frosty and has microglitters

Inglot Pearl 431 - light pink with a shimmery finish; 
a little bit darker than Ego & SWF; buttery texture

Note: Ego & Pearl 431 are my favorite pink eyeshadows to use as a lid color. 
I'm not a huge fan of SWF because it has microglitters and I get fallouts when I apply it.


Mac Pink Venus - medium pink with microglitters; lustre finish with poor color payoff

Mac Da Bling - pink with a shimmery finish

SMH Cat's Meow - pink with a fuchsia undertone; shimmery finish

Mac Swish - light pink with a violet undertone; shimmery finish; more frosty than Da Bling

Note: I rarely reach for Pink Venus because the color doesn't compliment my NC30/35 skin tone as well as other pink shades and I'm not too ecstatic about the tiny sparkles falling down my cheeks.


Inglot AMC Shine 48 - medium pink with a hint of plum; shimmery finish

Mac Sunset B (LE) - medium pink with a fuchsia undertone; 
soft shimmery finish that is not too frosty; buttery texture

Urban Decay Woodstock - dark fuchsia pink with a slight shimmery finish

Coastal Scents S06 magenta pink with a hint of violet; shimmery finish

Mac Stars N' Rocketsfuchsia pink with a bluish/purple iridescent; shimmery finish

Note: My favorite out of this bunch is S06 because 
I love using it to blend out purple eyeshadows. 

More Information: Urban Decay Eyeshadows cost $17.00 for 1.5 grams at Nordstrom, Beauty.com, 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 $1.95 for 1.5 grams. The empty 28 pan palette can be purchased from Coastal Scents for $9.95.

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.) For a full review about Inglot eyeshadows, please refer to this post.
