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.

Giorgio Armani No. 14 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 14 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a coppery bronze with lighter gold shimmer. It had finer shimmer, but it had a lot of shimmer, so the overall effect was dewy and frosted on the skin. The sheerer nature of the coverage made it less prone to emphasizing the skin’s natural texture, but if you build up the color, it can emphasize pores. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and blendable on the skin without disturbing base products but also could be worn alone. It may be a little too shimmery for some if mixed in with a base product, but it will add a general warmth, sheen, and shimmer when mixed. On me, this shade wore for ten hours before fading slightly. Tarte Park Ave Princess (P, ) is less shimmery, darker, more muted, cooler. Colour Pop Avalon (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker. L’Oreal Golden (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, lighter. Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is darker, more pigmented, cooler. Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery, more muted. Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented. Becca Topaz (P, $41.00) is cooler. Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
