Tom Ford Silver Smoke Nail Lacquer

Tom Ford Silver Smoke Nail Lacquer ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a taupe-pewter with a metallic finish. This was a really hard color to describe; it’s golden, smoky, pewter, and kind of taupe-ish. Chanel Delight is more copper. China Glaze Swing Baby is less warm-toned. Urban Decay Superfreak is more golden. MAC Soiree has more copper shimmer. Dior Timeless Gold is more pewter. China Glaze Jingle Bells is very gold in comparison. Chanel Quartz is grayer, almost green-tinted. Zoya Jules is lighter and less warm-toned.

Illamasqua Hype Eyeshadow

Illamasqua Hype Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “matte bright yellow.” This is a vibrant, bright sunshine yellow–it has a lot of warmth. There’s a slightly goldenrod tone to it. It’s not as warm or as dark as MAC Goldenrod, but it is nearly identical to Inglot #323.  Other shades of yellow I think of are either more neutral or cool-toned or else have a lot of shimmer.

OCC Acacia Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Acacia Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz. / 2.5 grams) is described as a “yellow with blue-green duochrome.” It’s a light-medium gold with yellow-brown undertones and a subtle green duochrome. The duochrome is hard to catch except at just the right angles. It can be really pretty when you do catch it, though. Bare Escentuals Remix is a bit darker, more golden, and has no duochrome. MAC Treasure Hunt is paler, less yellow. Bare Escentuals Standing O is paler. Urban Decay Eldorado is darker and has no duochrome. MAC Gorgeous Gold is the closest shade I could think of, as it also has a green-ish duochrome, though it appears a little more golden with less brown in it.
