Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Chimera Nail Lacquer

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Chimera Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “mint green metallic.” According to OCC, it should be opaque and has a metallic finish. It’s a green-teal with lots of metallic shimmer that is opaque in two coats. I could see this leaning a little tealer on cooler complexions, but against my warmer complexion, I can see the green in it. I went hunting for dupes, but I could not find anything that’s quite like this in products I’ve reviewed. China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses is so green in comparison, while Zoya Bevin is lighter, not as intense, and has no shimmer. It’s like I saw hints of Chimera in other shades, but nothing came close enough.

Burberry Primrose Hill Pink Lipstick

Burberry Primrose Hill Pink Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brightened warm pink that borders on pink-coral. Make Up For Ever Folk is slightly more coral. MAC Watch Me Simmer is brighter, slightly less pink. NYX Haute Melon is a bit more orange but has a similar look. Guerlain Nahema is much more coral. MAC Ultra Darling is slightly redder.  This kind of shade is flattering on both warmer and cooler skin tones, because it doesn’t have a lot of orange or coral in it.
