Marc Jacobs Beauty Gatsby (110) Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer
Marc Jacobs Beauty Gatsby (110) Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is a very light, muted rose gold with a metallic, foil-like finish. It’s almost like a rosy silver-pewter kind of color. It was opaque after two coats, and it had minimal visible brush strokes (but there were a few). It dried down quickly and applied easily. NARS Pastorale (P, $20.00) is darker. MAC Shimmerfish (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, darker. Chanel Rose Moire (LE, $27.00) is darker. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (P, $25.00) is warmer, darker.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Patsy (164) Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, pewter–pale gold micro-glitter over a dirty golden taupe base with a metallic finish. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was a slight translucency. The polish was slightly thin but dried down faster than the average polish. Formula X Alchemy (LE, $12.50) is warmer. Revlon Rich (P, $4.99) is greener. MAC Sinfully Sweet (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Chanel Quartz (LE, $27.00) is less foil-like. SpaRitual Slate (LE, $10.00) is darker. Zoya Jules (P, $9.00) is similar.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Cora (170) Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is a depened, reddish-brown with lighter rose micro-glitter and shimmer. It was fully opaque in nearly one coat, though I applied two for swatches. This one applied beautifully and evenly. It dried to a flatter finish than the other two, though there was still some shine. Zoya India (P, $9.00) is redder, glossier. Essie Toggle to the Top (P, $8.00) is redder. Le Metier de Beaute Urban Dweller (LE, $10.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
