5 Shades of Rose Quartz

Not one but two shades were selected as “Color of the Year” by Pantone for 2016. Their decision of choosing two hues, a pastel blue and pink, commonly associated as gender-specific colors, was explained as, “In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.” That’s what I like to hear! Here are five existing shades that line-up with the concept of Rose Quartz, which is a “warmer embracing rose tone.”

  1. Buxom Feather Boa — A Warm Pink with a Matte finish.
  2. NYX French Kiss — A Warm Pink with a Natural finish.
  3. Estee Lauder Desirable — A Warm Pink with a Natural finish.
  4. Zoya Rue — A Neutral Pink with a Cream finish.
  5. Inglot #356 — A Warm Pink with a Matte finish.

BUXOM Pink Coquette, Ultraviolet, Voodoo Spice Bold Gel Lipsticks

BUXOM Pink Coquette Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is described as a “satin bright warm pink.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, emollient texture that had a moderate amount of slip. The formula was moisturizing and comfortable to wear, but it only lasted for four hours with minor settling into lip lines. Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Native (DC, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is lighter (85% similar). YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Coral Confession, Evocative Petal, Graphic Grape Bold Gel Lipsticks

BUXOM Coral Confession Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is described as a “satin coral pink.” It’s a light-medium coral with warm undertones and a hint of pink and very fine micro-shimmer. It has a little more shine to it than a true satin finish (to me), but it wears down to satin within an hour or so. This shade had good pigmentation with a lightweight consistency that turns creamy as it heats up against the lips (from the bullet). I did have trouble with the color pulling into lip lines somewhat after two and a half hours of wear, but the creaminess of the formula made it so I could press and rub my lips together to even it back out again. It wore well for four and a half hours in total and was lightly hydrating. MAC Modern Wow! (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bare Peach (23) (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Eccentric (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals Express Yourself (LE, $20.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Naked Coral (21) (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Fancy Kiss (LE, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC A Sprinkle of Magic (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Style Surge (P, $23.00) is warmer (85% similar). Laura Mercier Pink Grapefruit (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (85% similar). NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Chella (LE, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $17.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar).
