Maybelline Very Cherry Color Sensational Lipcolor

Maybelline Very Cherry Color Sensational Lipcolor ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is is a brightened blue-based red with a subtle sheen. When I saw Maybelline use this during Fashion Week in February, it looked like it might be a dupe for Chanel Dragon. It’s not a dupe, though they’re both blue-based reds with deeper ruby tones, so there are definitely similarities worth noting. MAC Runaway Red is a touch brighter and less blue-based. MAC Ruby Woo is cooler toned. Guerlain Garconne is more of a neutral red in comparison.

Deborah Lippmann Billionaire Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Billionaire Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “moody hunter green” with a cream finish. This is a really murky, blackened green with more black than green. There’s a hint of olive-brown in the base, which contributes to the forboding look of the color. Chanel Khaki Brun has similar qualities, but it’s much, much lighter, so it appears green, rather than nearly black. Rescue Beauty Lounge Anne is closer in the overall color, but the shimmer in its finish makes it quite different. I couldn’t think of an exact dupe or even a shade that came close to it.
