Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “silvery blue starlight” with a glitter finish. It has a blue-tinted gray color base with silver hexagonal and smaller glitter particles. The closest dupe I could think of was China Glaze Tinsel Town, which is finer and has a lot more color coverage (plus, the base color is black). The base color reminded me of Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, which is far more opaque. Based on how Deborah Lippmann’s has described her glitter polishes, I would expect some sheerness, but this is a lot.

Le Metier de Beaute Paris Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is an opaque magenta-fuchsia with a cream finish. It has the barest of a sheen, which does wear away after a couple of hours and results in a more matte finish. MAC Zen Rose is similar, glossier. Shiseido Fuchsia RS 320 is comparable, slightly purpler. MAC Pink Pigeon is brighter, pinker. MAC Love Forever is purpler. MAC Something New is pinker. NARS Schiap is pinker, slightly brighter.
