Burberry Pink Amber (306) Lip Velvet

Burberry Pink Amber (306) Lip Velvet ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with brightness that’s vibrant without being neon or too intimidating. It has warm undertones, but it doesn’t turn orange. Chanel Enjouee is pinker. Guerlain Gracy is brighter, pinker. Guerlain Chamade is a smidgen pinker, and it has a glossier finish (it looks a bit different on). Guerlain Bal de Mai has gold shimmer. Chanel Flamboyante is redder. Burberry Blush is more muted, less vibrant, and pinker.

Tarte Big Thrill Collection

Tarte Big Thrill Collection ($48.00) is a large box set/palette that contains sixteen eyeshadows (0.08 oz. each), four blushes (0.16 oz. each), and three lipglosses (0.20 oz. each).  It’s a palette that’s really loaded with value, because you’re getting so many shades and high quantities of each.  The average individual powder eyeshadow is around 0.05 oz.–these are even larger–and the average blush is right around 0.16 oz. (and Tarte’s full-sized blushes are 0.20 oz.), too.  Many lipglosses are between 0.17 and 0.24 oz., so these fall right in the middle.
