L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a metallic, yellow gold. There’s a slightly subdued quality to the overall color–by a little brown–that keeps it from being a yellow/orange kind of gold. This is why it’s not the same as L’Oreal’s Eternal Sunshine,, though if you rarely wear gold, one will do; or, if you find that Eternal Sunshine turns orange-y, you might prefer Gold Imperial. Chanel Apprence is browner. Urban Decay Blitz is very similar–less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is yellower.

OCC Electric Grandma Lip Tar

OCC Electric Grandma Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “electrified true, classic coral.” It’s a brightened orange with tangerine shimmer and a slight pink tinge. Guerlain Orange Euphorique is more subdued. Chanel Sari d’Eau is darker. guerlain Gil is darker, redder. Guerlain Gipsy is darker and redder with less shimmer. MAC Vegas Volt is pinker.  I was actually surprised that I didn’t find anything more similar to this, but the brightness paired with the less-obvious orange-tones made it tough to dupe.
