L’Oreal New Money Colour Riche Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal New Money Colour Riche Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a creamy chartreuse–a mix of yellow and green–that’s bright and bold but not quite neon. China Glaze Def Defying is slightly darker. Sinful Colors Innocent is a touch yellower. NYX Lime is shimmery. China Glaze Electric Pineapple is very similar in color. Illamasqua Radium is similar but slightly greener, and it has shimmer.

L’Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a creamy black with silver-gray shimmer. It has less shimmer when compared to Illamasqua Creator and NARS Night Breed. L’Oreal The Queen’s Ambition is closer to the other two dupes I mentioned, as the shimmer is larger and more noticeable.

5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

I could have easily given you a list of ten, being the gold fiend that I am, but I’ll keep it to the current five that really say holiday to me.  I think gold is a very versatile color.  It pairs well with warmer shades like bronze, rust, and berry, but it can also work with cooler-toned shades like violet, teal, and blue.  And if golds not your cup of tea, I have five of my favorite silvers for holiday coming right up.  Any interest in seeing some holiday blue shades? What other holiday-themed favorites would you like to see?

  1. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine — metallic yellow gold; not too yellow, not too orange
  2. OCC Triptych — rich, molten, honey gold
  3. Make Up For Ever #11 — dirty antique gold
  4. Inglot #430 — frosted, rich gold
  5. MAC Old Gold — tarnished gold

What’s your favorite holiday gold eyeshadow?
