Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich beet magenta.” It’s a rich raspberry red with subtle blue undertones and soft, glossy sheen. Revlon Raspberry Pie is a smidgen less red, not quite as bright. Guerlain Girly is redder. OCC Queen is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is rather close, just more opaque (so it looks a little darker).

Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a strawberry pink with a strong yellow undertone, so I could see it looking to coral–I think it’s a smidgen on the pinker side. This is like a much tamer variation of MAC Force of Love. Chanel Hyde Park is brighter and less yellow-toned. Guerlain Giulette is a bit brighter and has a gold sheen, but it is similar. MAC Sunny Seoul is a touch lighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is quite comparable, perhaps a touch darker.

LUSH Vibrance Liquid Lipstick

LUSH Vibrance Liquid Lipstick ($22.95 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “shimmering, golden orange.” It’s a brightened tangerine orange with lighter, golden orange shimmer/glitter. OCC Banjee is similar in color to the lighter shimmer, but it’s an opaque lip color with no shimmer. I couldn’t think of anything that came that close. You would better be able to achieve a look like this by wearing an orange lipstick and pairing it with a gold-shimmered gloss.
