Giorgio Armani No. 17 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 17 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and soft shimmer in hues of pink and gold. The texture felt lightweight and was thin but not as thin as the average shade is in this range. It had sheer coverage that produced a very light hint of color but primarily sheen on my medium skin tone, though layered two or three times gives more noticeable color. It blended out well and looked even applied. On me, the color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. Charlotte Tilbury Formentera (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented, cooler. Becca Raspberry/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, cooler. bareMinerals Golden Gate Radiance (LE, $19.00) is cooler. MAC Scene to Be Seen (Inner) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, brighter, more pigmented. Giorgio Armani Light Rose (LE, ) is more shimmery, more pigmented, cooler. Bobbi Brown Nude Beach (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery. NARS Lovejoy (P, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit ($49.50 for 0.43 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, two blushes, and two lipsticks. Worth pointing out right away is that the back of my palette says the second blush on the left is Simply Bliss, whereas Nordstrom’s product listing had Cream Soda in its place; I checked both of them, and the blush in this palette is slightly more pink-tinted and a little lighter but not by much.

NARS Blame It On NARS Blush Palette

NARS Blame It On NARS Blush Palette ($59.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes a highlighter, bronzer, and two blushes, plus a traval-sized ITA brush. I have reviewed most of these shades before, so the list of similar shades is pretty up-to-date, so rather than pull a new link, I’ve included the current lists as they stand. I did test each of these versions for wear, pigmentation, application, and so forth. I think the packaging is really cool, but I wish the compact didn’t feel so bulky. I really like some of NARS’ blushes, but there are a fair amount that have been misses for me. This palette is a bit of a mixed bag, and I find there is too much variance from release to release.
