Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis

Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a sheer, shimmering champagne gold with flecks of copper-red. I’m pretty sure this is a renamed version of Golden Light (also known as Golden Era and or Lumiere or #207), and while it may be called Diorling, the number is #207. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar coloring, but it’s opaque and does not have any red shimmer/sparkle. Chanel Diwali is more of an antique gold (less yellow). OCC Cruising is a stronger yellow gold and has a lot more shimmer/glitter. Readers mentioned some great dupe potentials here as well! 🙂

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich beet magenta.” It’s a rich raspberry red with subtle blue undertones and soft, glossy sheen. Revlon Raspberry Pie is a smidgen less red, not quite as bright. Guerlain Girly is redder. OCC Queen is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is rather close, just more opaque (so it looks a little darker).

Tom Ford Exotic Teal Eye Defining Pencil

Tom Ford Exotic Teal Eye Defining Pencil ($35.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, blue-based teal with a pearly finish. Prescriptives Blue Grotto is similar, slightly greener. NARS Kaliste is a smidgen lighter. Estee Lauder Electric Teal is less blue, slightly lighter. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking for an eyeliner that dupes Prescriptives’ Blue Grotto!  (NARS Kaliste wears terribly on me, unfortunately.)

Guerlain Altoum Nail Lacquer

Guerlain Altoum Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.38 fl. oz.) is described as a “gleaming gold for precious glow.” It’s a pale golden beige with a metallic finish. I don’t have anything quite like it in my stash, so I’d love to hear if you know of any potential dupes. China Glaze White Cap is more of a white gold and has chunkier sparkle/glitter. China Glaze Fast Track is much, much darker and browner. Zoya Minka is more beige and much lighter.

Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a strawberry pink with a strong yellow undertone, so I could see it looking to coral–I think it’s a smidgen on the pinker side. This is like a much tamer variation of MAC Force of Love. Chanel Hyde Park is brighter and less yellow-toned. Guerlain Giulette is a bit brighter and has a gold sheen, but it is similar. MAC Sunny Seoul is a touch lighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is quite comparable, perhaps a touch darker.
