Bobbi Brown Pastel Pink Blush

Bobbi Brown Pastel Pink Blush ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “pink rose.” It’s a light-medium, cotton candy pink with blue undertones and a satiny finish–not quite matte but not quite a full-on sheen. NARS Gaiety is cooler-toned, bluer-based. NARS Angelika is darker, sparkly. MAC Pink Tea is more shimmery. MAC Peony Petal is cooler-toned. Tarte Dollface is a touch lighter. Bobbi Brown Nude Pink is more muted, slightly lighter.

Marni Eau de Parfum Review & Photos

Marni Eau de Parfum ($50.00 to $155.00, depending on size) consists of top notes of bergamot, pepper, ginger, and pink peppercorn; heart notes of cardamom, rose, and cinnamon bark; and bottom notes of patchouli, incense, vetiver, and cedarwood.  When I initially opened up the box and tested it (on a whim, really, because I hadn’t even photographed it), I had no idea what to expect, but I was so very pleasantly surprised to find it an intriguing, nearly unisex scent that delivers on its promise.

China Glaze Strap On Your Moon Boots Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Strap On Your Moon Boots Nail Lacquer ($14.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “midnight sky blue.” It’s a darkened, stormy blue with linear, holographic shimmer. I couldn’t come up with any dupes, though, even for something similar in color (but without holographic shimmer).

KBShimmer Pastel Me More Nail Lacquer

KBShimmer Pastel Me More Nail Lacquer ($8.75 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “rainbow of pastel colors from pink to periwinkle” with “several different sizes of hex glitters.” It’s a fun confetti-like mix of light blue, copper, pink, periwinkle, and yellow in medium hexagon-shapes as well as small and smaller glitters. The effect–but only at a glance–reminded me of Cult Nails Happy Ending, but Happy Ending is shredder glitter and not quite the same in composition.
