MAC Local Wares Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty olive with multidimensional pearl.” It’s a muted dark brown with a gray tinge and subtle gold sparkle. The sparkle isn’t really noticeable once it is applied. It reminded me of CoverGirl Brown, without the shimmer. This collection seems to lean on the warmer side, but this eyeliner reads cooler on me–it actually looks almost gray when I tried it out.
China Glaze I’m Not Lion Nail Lacquer ($3.00 to $7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “glistening gold and multi-colored glitter.” It’s a predominantly pale, antique gold glitter with an assortment of smaller glitter particles. The base color really seemed clear to me. The inclusion of multi-colored glitter makes it look different from a lot of the other antique gold shades we’ve been seeing (think Illamasqua Swinger, Revlon Gold Coin, and Chanel Diwali). The closest color I could come up with was China Glaze Medallion, which is darker gold, chunkier glitter all around.
Zoya Daul Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “medium red-toned purple base with heavy purple and gold iridescent metallic sparkle.” It’s a medium violet purple with red undertones and plenty of pale gold sparkle. The sparkle particles are fairly large, bordering on micro-glitter but flatter and smoother. Zoya Tru has a similar base color but less shimmer and copper-red-colored shimmer at that. Zoya Dannii is lighter, more lavender.
