Illamasqua Apocalips Lipstick

Illamasqua Apocalips Lipstick (£15.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “teal” with a matte finish. It’s an opaque blue-teal with a matte finish. It’s certainly not the shade you think of when you hear the word “everyday.” I’m sure it doesn’t come as much of a surprise when I say I don’t have anything quite like this. The closest would be Illamasqua’s Gender, which is a bluish lipgloss. I haven’t swatched or used it yet, but perhaps OCC’s Chlorophyll will be similar (but it looks more like a green-teal).

NARS Coeur Sucre Larger Than Life Lipgloss

NARS Coeur Sucre Larger Than Life Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering vibrant pink.” It’s a medium cotton candy pink with blue undertones and a silver-white micro-glitter/shimmer. I couldn’t think of too many shades that came close to this. MAC Vanity Fair is much lighter and has no shimmer (more like a liquid lipstick formula). NARS Angelika would be much closer, except it’s not as opaque and applies fairly streaky. MAC Sassy Lassy is darker and brighter.

Guerlain Guet-Apens (167) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a reddened berry with soft raspberry red shimmer. The color coverage is semi-opaque, but it doesn’t give the most even coverage. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is redder. Dior Nocturne is redder and has gold shimmer. Dior Technicolor Red is redder and brighter. Guerlain Nuit d’Amour is a bit darker. MAC Rebel is a bit redder and more opaque.

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss

Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium tangerine with gold shimmer. On my lips, it gives them an orange-tint–it looks slightly darker and more like a tint than a colored gloss. There’s also a fine golden shimmer that catches light really well. Oddly enough, I couldn’t think of a perfect dupe for this. It’s sheer yet tinted enough that it adds color and hue to my lips that reads as natural as it could ever be. Do you have any suggestions for a dupe? Perhaps I am being extra forgetful!
