Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “flirtatious red” with a cream finish. The color description could be more helpful! It’s a rich, deep brown red that’s opaque in two coats. This kind of red has a lot of similar shades available, including: MAC Blueblood (darker), China Glaze Velvet Bow (can’t see any differences), Urban Decay Wrecked (darker), MAC Purple Majesty (less brown, darker), Zoya Anja (darker), and Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter (purpler)–and that’s just naming a few.

Urban Decay Underground Deluxe Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Underground Deluxe Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “medium fawn.” It’s a medium-dark gray-tinted brown; it’s rather taupe to me, though not as cool-toned as some taupes can be. The finish has a frosted appearance with a hint of metallic sheen. MAC Caviar Dreams has a similar color but different finish. Benefit Dandy Brandy is much more of a red-toned brown than taupe. Tarina Tarantino Delightful has a warmer base. MAC Magical Mist is a bit lighter. Bare Escentuals A-Ha has a redder undertone. MAC Aloha has a redder undertone and a more metallic finish.

Ozotic #505 Nail Lacquer

Ozotic #505 Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a multi-chromatic polish that shifts green, pink, cyan, and blue. It is more of a layering polish than anything else–you can see the color alone, but in order for the multi-chromatic effect to really pop, a darker underlayer works best. I applied two coats of it alone on my index and middle fingers, and then I applied one coat of it over a black polish on my ring finger. Alone, there are bits of silvery blue, fuchsia purple, and blue-purple that seem to catch the light. Over black, it looks like teal, forest green, fuchsia purple, and bluish-purple.

Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City Illuminating Powder

Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.52 oz.) is a metallic yellow gold with buildable color. It doesn’t take a lot of product to achieve an appropriate amount of highlighting color on the cheek, but it is very blendable so it can be sheered out or applied softly from the start.  When I wore this, it lasted for seven hours with noticeable (but not disastrous) fading by the eighth hour.  I wore it as a blusher, just because it’s easier to identify how well it wears when you cover a larger area, but I’d typically dust this on cheek bones and paired with a warm-toned blush (maybe a coral or natural brown).
