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.

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.

Giorgio Armani No. 13 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 13 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with fine gold shimmer that gives it a soft, glowing sheen that doesn’t read too shimmery on the skin. It has a stronger yellow base, though it is a sheer coverage product, but it will noticeably tint the cheeks yellow on some skin tones (it does on mine for reference). The texture is lightweight and spread well, but it didn’t blend out as evenly as other shades in the range, which was disappointing, and I think it was because it dried down quickly. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. L’Oreal Golden (P, $12.99) is warmer. NARS Jubilation (Left) (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Dior Gold Shock (001) (LE, $80.00) is less shimmery. Becca Champagne Gold (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Giorgio Armani No. 04 (P, $62.00) is less shimmery. MAC Centre of Attention (Inner) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Party (LE, $42.00) is more shimmery, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
