SpaRitual Quartz Nail Lacquer

SpaRitual Quartz Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “earthy red creme infused with rhyolite.” It’s a rusty orange-red with flecks of blackened brown. It looks so… earthy on; there’s no other way to describe it. The finish was really unique, and it should, since rhyolite is “igneous, volcanic rock, of felsic composition” (according to Google). I couldn’t think of anything in my stash that was similar. Even when I tried to find something similar to the base color, I could only come up with MAC Styleseeker, which is much more orange.

Tarina Tarantino Tommy Jet Eye Dream Hyperliner

Tarina Tarantino Tommy Jet Eye Dream Hyperliner ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “deepest black.” I’d argue it’s a dark black, but it’s not the richest, darkest black eyeliner I’ve come across. It’s not soft, and it’s a bit darker than medium black. There is a whole host of other black eyeliners that are comparable; most notably MAC Black Black, MAC Smolder, and Bobbi Brown Black. I promise: updated eyeliner comparisons are on my to-do list!
