MAC Chestnut Lipglass, Lipstick, Nail Lacquer

MAC Chestnut Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) was inspired by the top-selling lip liner, along with a Lipglass ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) and Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) to complement.

NARS Amchoor Nail Lacquer

NARS Amchoor Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright yellow.” It is definitely that! It’s a bright, sunshine yellow, so it has slight golden orange undertones. It’s lighter and more opaque compared to MAC Al Fredo. It’s similar in color but more opaque compared to Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road. Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever is the closest I could find, though it has faint gold shimmer and is a smidgen lighter.  This kind of color just screams summer to me.  I think it could be really cute on toes whenever sandal weather happens in your part of the world!

Illamasqua Stance Nail Varnish

Illamasqua Stance Nail Varnish ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “fuchsia violet with a glossy finish.” It’s a rich, vibrant magenta with a near-neon brightness. The closest shade I could think of was Urban Decay Miss T, which is very close but has shimmer and a touch pinker. The next closest would be China Glaze Senorita Bonita, which is much darker, purpler, and has shimmer. Illamasqua Obsess is pinker, less purple. Deborah Lippmann Makin’ Whoopee is more fuchsia.

NARS Kutki Nail Lacquer

Thakoon for NARS will debut on May 1st at NARS’ website, and the collection features six shades.   NARS Kutki Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “powder blue.” It’s a pale, pastel sky blue–a little more muted than the perfect sky blue, I’d say–it does have a powdery/dusty quality to it. Nubar Blue Hydrangea is a richer blue, less white in its base. Chanel Riva is very similar in color, but it is more translucent and has shimmer.
