NYX Rose Gold & Intuition HD Blushes

NYX Rose Gold HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a brightened, medium orange-coral with warm, reddish undertones and a strong, golden frost. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to mostly true-to-pan color. The texture was silky to the touch, which made it easy to blend and work into the skin, and the fineness of the powder helped it adhere smoothly. The only downside is that it is a little powdery and kicks up excess in the pan, but luckily, that powderiness doesn’t translate on the skin. This shade wore for seven and a half hours on me. Makeup Geek Romance (P, $9.99) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). NYX Menage a Trois (P, $15.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Style Cast (LE, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Milani Embrace & Flirt Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Embrace Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep reddish plum.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark berry with strong, cool pink undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on fairly evenly, but there was some slight “streaking” where the color appeared lighter/darker in areas. The formula was thin and easily spread across the lips, but it was also easily spread past the natural lip line with the amount pulled on the applicator so be careful or wipe off excess prior to using. The color lasted for eight hours with minimal fading and was just a tad drying after six hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Violet (16) (P, $50.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Acai (LE, $17.00) is darker, brighter, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Bauhau5 (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Intoxicate & Jet Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Intoxicate Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “caramel brown.” It’s a medium-dark, yellowed brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy consistency that blended out nicely on the skin without sheering out. I had no issues applying it with a brush (MAC 242), but you can also use fingertips if you prefer. It wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing. MAC Clove (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Mousse (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Nude #4 (LE) is lighter (90% similar).

Milani Desire & Romance Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Desire Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a brightened, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a smooth, matte finish. It was intensely pigmented and applied with even coverage, though the more liquid-y consistency does make it a little harder to maneuver around the edges. As always, I recommend trying to remove excess product from the applicator or using a lip brush to make it easier to apply. It wore well for eight hours with minimal fading and was a little drying after seven hours. Colour Pop Succulent (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). Hourglass Raven (P, $28.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Underage Red (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar).

NYX Pastel Chic & Baby Doll HD Blushes

NYX Pastel Chic HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a very pale pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It is almost like a washed-out lavender. There is a strong white base, so on my skin tone, it looks chalky, and obviously I’m unable to show it to its best appearance as a result, even though it had semi-opaque coverage. (It is going to be ideal for someone who is fairer and finds most blushes too dark for their preferences.) The texture is very, very powdery, despite having an incredibly silky consistency to the touch but remains easy to blend out on the skin and looks even applied. On me, it wore for seven hours before fading. Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Full of Joy (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Pink Buttercream (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Unconventional (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

NYX Bronzed & Glow HD Blushes

NYX Bronzed HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a softened, medium copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that was a smidgen powdery but didn’t look it on the skin. The blush seemed to “melt” against the skin to a degree, as the finish had a natural sheen that didn’t emphasize pores but helped the skin look like skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Sephora Collection Passionate (23) (P, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Chanel Jersey (80) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Alezane (260) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).
