Bobbi Brown Black Ruby High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Black Ruby High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “crimson with gold pearl.” It’s a semi-opaque, vibrant ruby red base with gold shimmer. Chanel Triomphal is more opaque and has pink shimmer. MAC Sonoran Rain is warmer. MAC Driven by Love is rdder, less sparkly. YSL Golden Red is warmer.  I can’t wait to wear this during the holidays–I can be very traditional sometimes, and in the case of the holidays, I love a red lip with gold shimmer).  I love how the red is a deeper kind of red–it’s not a bright, cherry red, and it’s not strongly blue-based, yet it isn’t orange-based, either. It’s just barely cool-toned, with a berry/wine kind of pull, and it can be harder to find gold-shimmered reds that aren’t orange-based.

MAC Nail Lacquers – Preview Photos & Swatches

MAC Nail Lacquers ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) has thirty-one new (well, some newer than others) shades being added to the permanent range. I don’t have any of the brand spankin’ new ones to share with you, but I did receive a press kit that included a set of swatches on plastic nails. Since I didn’t do the swatching, I have no idea how many coats were used or anything like that. As soon as I’m able to purchase the polishes, I’ll do so and have swatches for you at that time. For official descriptions, please see this post. For now, here are my descriptions of them based on the included swatches:

Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac Long-Wear Cream Shadow

Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac Long-Wear Cream Shadow ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “cool shimmer pink lilac.” The color is a cool-toned, lavender-tinted pink with lilac and gold shimmer. Make Up For Ever #151 is a little lighter, less pink. MAC Boy Crazy is less shimmery. Dolce & Gabbana Jewels is a little softer.  This color is really lovely as a wash, because it brightens without drawing too much attention to the eyes.

Tom Ford Violet Fatale Lip Color

Tom Ford Violet Fatale Lip Color ($48.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-opaque fuchsia-shimmered deep raspberry red. It has a natural glossy shine. Revlon Raspberry Pie is redder, less pink, no fuchsia shimmer. NARS Carthage is brighter, pinker. MAC Quite the Thing! is very similar, glossier. NYX Chloe has a fuchsia sheen rather than a shimmer. While the name isn’t much to go off, and one should never really trust a name to be descriptive, I wouldn’t classify this as a violet; this is more of a berry shade overall.
