Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer

Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant magenta nail lacquer flecked with red, blue, and gold micro-particles.” It’s a glittery extravaganza that features magenta, blue, and gold particles. I don’t have an extensive stash of glitter polishes, but I did go through what I could. China Glaze CG in the City is more of a gray-ish purple with not much else going on. Rescue Beauty Lounge Frugalista has magenta glitter, but the other accompanying glitter is silver. Milani Hi-Res was the most similar that I had, but it has a purple base with holographic glitter/shimmer.

Guerlain Peach Boy Rose aux Joues Blush Duo

Guerlain Peach Boy Blush Duo ($50.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a vibrant orange-coral with a mostly matte finish and a gold-shimmered peach-coral. Combined, the two work together to create a soft gold-shimmered, light-medium coral-orange. For the dominant shade, the color is more intense than NARS Gilda but less intense than NARS Exhibit A; MAC Modern Mandarin has a soft sheen that makes it appear just a hair lighter, while MAC Out for Fun is very similar. Make Up For Ever #5 is also simimilar in color.

China Glaze Exotic Encounters Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Exotic Encounters Nail Lacquer ($3.00 to $7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lush green creme with blue undertones.” It reads as a dusty green-teal with a cream finish on me. Not a dupe, but reminiscent in the kind of color family, Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack has a similar green-teal coloring but is much, much darker. MAC Screening Room is much bluer. Though blue, Illamasqua Muse had a similar dusted quality.  I was surprised to find that I could not discover any dupes within polishes I’ve reviewed–none of three I mentioned in the post are dupes.

Bobbi Brown Blue Moon Long-Wear Cream Shadow

Maybelline Tenacious Teal is a little more aqua-blue in comparison. MAC Blue Candy is lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Fly me to the Moon is a step or two darker.

NARS Undress Me The Multiple

NARS Undress Me The Multiple ($39.00 for 0.5 oz.) is described as a “ballerina pink with silver shimmer.” That should be upgraded to silver glitter–it’s much, much chunkier than sparkle. I don’t think I’d describe it as micro-glitter but regular glitter or a mix of small and large-sized glitter particles. The color itself is a pale, just slightly cool-toned, pink. MAC Lazy Sunday has a similar effect and look on, though it has no sparkle. MAC Full of Joy is much cooler-toned, to the point that it looks almost lilac. MAC New Order has gold sparkle and is slightly darker. Make Up For Ever #303 would have a similar effect on cheeks, though it has a frosted finish and is slightly cooler-toned.
