Cult Nails Manipulative Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Manipulative Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque pale blue with a hint of green” with a cream finish and subtle shimmer. It’s a dusty aqua blue with bluish-white shimmer. It really does hide in certain light, but with enough light, the shimmer is noticeable. OCC Pool Boy is similar but brighter, more vibrant. Nubar Blue Hydrangea is bluer. It’s actually really cool to see Cult Nails put out shades that I haven’t seen on the market–it just seems more often than not they’re creating a shade that meets an unmet need (though I certainly haven’t seen every shade by every brand ever made, so there may be closer dupes out there).

Le Metier de Beaute Hibiskiss Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Hibiskiss Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a dark fuchsia red with subtle white shimmer and subtly cool blue undertones. The color coverage is semi-opaque–it yields a fair amount of color, but there’s still some translucency. Burberry Hibiscus is lighter, not as intense. NARS Mexican Rose is very similar but a bit brighter and more opaque. Lancome Electric Pink is a bit redder and has a lot more shimmer. MAC Just Add Colour is a bit lighter and has fuchsia shimmer.

Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter

Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter ($10.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a multi-colored highlighter that features five strips of color that can be swirled together or used in parts to create an illuminated look. This is an online exclusive to sleekmakeup.com. Each strip is fairly narrow, so they’re not shades you would use singularly as a blush, though you could certainly try or go for a very precise look by using eye brushes instead. The five individual shades consist of a shimmering white gold with a strong yellow gold sheen, peachy beige with a softer shimmer, coppery orange with a shimmery finish, golden peach-pink with a frosted finish, and a dirty beige with a champagne frosted shimmer. Together, they create a warm bronze with a golden shimmer-sheen and slight red undertones. It’s a bit like a shimmery version of Urban Decay’s Toasted. Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon is similar but more orange-y.
