NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer

NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black with red flecks.” It looks like a black jelly with large, hexagon-shaped red glitter and smaller bits of red glitter. The finish is interesting, because it has the squishy look of a jelly, but it’s such a dark color that it almost doesn’t seem right!  The one dupe that I know of is Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers–there are really barely-there differences that you’ll likely only find in amount/composition under intense scrutiny.

Maybelline Gold Rush Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow

A Very Sparkling Rush of Gold

Maybelline Gold Rush Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a sparkling gold with strong yellow tones and a metallic finish. Chanel Vision has a similar texture but it is a browner gold, less yellowed. Cinderella Gus Gus is less metallic and a powder product. OCC Triptych is slightly darker, more metallic, and a powder. MAC Goldmine is also similar in color but a powder eyeshadow.

This shade sets itself a part in finish from pretty much every other Color Tattoo I’ve come across, because it has a heavy sparkle effect that changes the texture of the product as a whole. There’s a slight grittiness to the touch, and it doesn’t blend smoothly or look even on the lid. It tended to make my eyelid look a bit crepe-like and wrinkled. Because of the sparkle, it seemed to bunch up in places, no matter if I used a fingertip, sponge-tipped applicator, or brush to blend and/or apply the product. I did get some fall out during the twelve hours I wore Gold Rush for, though it did not seem to really fade or crease.
