Laura Mercier Cherry on Top Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a bright, medium orange-red with strong, warm undertones and a creamy, shiny finish.

Anastasia Custard, Caramel, Copper Shimmer, Rich Brown Eyeshadows

Anastasia Custard Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a meduim, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It is pretty aptly named, actually. The texture was lightly dusty, though blendable, with semi-opaque color payoff. This one faded more quickly than some of the recent shades–after six and a half hours–so I would recommend a primer as a must-have with this shade. Too Faced Tufted Suede (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bone (LE, $23.00) is lighter (85% similar). Buxom Gimme Gorgeous (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Marc Jacobs No Angel, Sonic Truth, Slowburn Le Marc Lip Cremes

Marc Jacobs No Angel Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “apricot nude.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a really creamy, smooth consistency that applied without tugging and left behind even, opaque color. Though it didn’t wear for the ten hours promised, it did go on for six and a half hours, which is good for this type of color. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me. Estee Lauder Covetous Nude (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Milkshake (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Magic Wand (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Guerlain Pause d’Ete Terracotta Bronzing Powder Duo ($82.00 for 0.60 oz.) swirls together to create a warmer, medium orange-brown hue with a frosted shimmer.
