NARS New York Dolls Nail Lacquer

NARS New York Dolls Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as ” purple.” It’s a dark purple with a subdued quality to it, so it doesn’t have a strong red undertone, and it seems just barely blue-based–but it’s so subtle and changes depending on the lighting conditions. Illamasqua Faux Pas is closest inc olor, but it is lighter and had a rubberized finish. Zoya Mira is lighter and more red-toned. SpaRitual Illume is lighter, bluer-based. Orly Purple Pleather is cooler-toned and has a rubberized finish.

NARS 47th Street Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner

NARS 47th Street Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “black with silver shimmer.” It’s a dark black with chunky silver sparkle–it’s definitely larger than what you’d expect of shimmer. I couldn’t think of anything similar to this (not to say that there aren’t dupes, just nothing I know of). The closest that I could come up with was MAC Black Swan, which is black with more of a blue shimmer-sheen. MAC Smooth Manoeuvre is also black with a couple of bits of silver shimmer but hardly any. Update: A few readers suggested Urban Decay Oil Slick, which is a silver-shimmered black, and it is a softer, lighter black (almost looks gray in comparison), and the sparkle is a lot subtler/smaller, so it’s not quite the same, but it is similar!

NARS Lovejoy Blush

NARS Lovejoy Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “shimmering bronzed rose.” It’s rosy-red with a little brown thrown in paired with a golden shimmer-sheen. MAC Ring of Saturn is more orange-red, brighter–the two look a little more similar if used softly. Tom Ford Savage is similar but seems a smidgen lighter and has a mostly matte finish. MAC Buddy Up seems fairly close but doesn’t have the golden sheen. MAC Stratus is darker, a little redder.
