Illamasqua Opulent Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Opulent Intense Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “rainbow beige.” It’s a golden-beige with multi-colored shimmer (almost holographic but not quite) that reads mostly champagne, gold, copper, and pink once applied. NARS Albatross looks a bit lighter on the lips. MAC Bubble Lounge is lighter, less beige. MAC Luxure has a similar sparkle but is more silvered.

Illamasqua Boost Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Boost Intense Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “blueberry violet.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based magenta pink with violet-fuchsia iridescent shimmer. I couldn’t think of a great dupe for this; lipsticks that may have been somewhat similar in color lacked the shimmer/sheen, which is such a noticeable characteristic of this gloss that they didn’t look alike at all. MAC Style Packed is pinker with no iridescence. LORAC Cliche has some iridescence, but it’s pinker and so much sheerer. Benefit Wild Child also had an iridescent shimmer, but it was sheerer and lighter.

Hourglass Muse Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick

Hourglass Muse Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “coral red.” It’s a vibrant coral-red with a neon quality that gives it this really bright, bold look. This is a color that says, “Hey! You! Did you see THIS lip color?!” It has a strong warm, orange pull to it. Illamasqua Mistress is the closest dupe I could think, even though it’s a gloss–color-wise, they’re very similar with Muse being slightly more intense. Wet ‘n’ Wild 909D is similar but a bit softer. Dolce & Gabbana Cosmopolitan is lighter, less red.

Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink nude with gold flecks.” This is a plummy brown with a hint of mauve and multi-colored shimmer–it almost looks holographic at certain angles. Holographic or not, it is chocked full of shimmer, though, as the formula might lead you to believe. Revlon Rosegold is pinker, warmer. MAC Blessedly Rich has more orange and copper in it. Bobbi Brown Beach is sheerer and has more gold/bronze shimmer. MAC Social Light is similar. MAC Explicit is a bit lighter. MAC Spree is browner.

OCC Nylon Lip Tar

OCC Nylon Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon pink.” This color is electric–it’s absolutely a bold, bright neon pink with subtle blue undertones. I really think this is the brightest pink I own. MAC Dear Diary is darker, less bright. MAC Candy Yum Yum is a bit more magenta and less bright but comes the closest.
