Benefit Fauxmance Ultra Plush Lipgloss

Benefit Fauxmance Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft berry.” It squeezes out and looks like a coral rose with soft white shimmer, and then applied, it’s a light coral-pink with a glossy, reflective sheen. MAC Persistent Peach is a touch lighter and has a creamier consistency. Chanel Mystery is very close in color but glossier. MAC Strange Potion is darker, more coral. Dior Pink Veil is pinker.

NARS 413 BLKR The Multiple

NARS 413 BLKR The Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is described as a “rich burgundy.” It’s a reddish-wine with a little rust and berry thrown in for good measure that dries down to a mostly matte finish–there’s a very subtle shimmer that reads matte on the skin. My first thought was that it seemed like a dead-ringer for NARS Seduction, which launched recently, and it’s really quite close; so it’s a matter of whether you prefer powder or cream-to-powder. NARS Dolce Vita is much pinker. MAC Hidden Treasure is warmer, more orange. NARS G-Spot has more shimmer and is a softer, slightly rosier color. NARS Grenadines (an eyeshadow) is also similar but very matte, slightly muted.

Benefit No Pressure Creaseless Cream Shadow

Benefit No Pressure Creaseless Cream Shadow ($20.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “rich fawn.” It’s a bronze-shimmered, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray to keep it from being too warm-toned. It has a frosted, metallic finish that reflects a fair amount of light even when sheered out. Benefit Birthday Suit is lighter and more golden. Maybelline Bad to the Bronze is warmer, more of a true bronze. Make Up For Ever #15 is a few shades darker.

Buxom Husky is darker. Giorgio Armani #10 is very comparable.
