MAC Antique Diamond Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Antique Diamond Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “frosted olive silver.” It’s an olive green-tinged brown with a general mutedness and a sprinkling of silver sparkle. MAC Enviable is darker and a powder product. Dior Khaki Design #3 is greener, less metallic, and a powder product. MAC Cakeshop is greener. Benefit Skinny Jeans is similar–it has a more satiny finish than a metallic one (and for the record, Birthday Suit is less green-tinged).

Estee Lauder Insatiable Nail Lacquer

Estee Lauder Insatiable Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a muted, gray-purple with a cream finish. Zoya Lotus is warmer, pinker, and has shimmer. Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid is much, much lighter and has sparkle. Rescue Beauty Lounge Insouciant is lighter, less gray. None of these, however, were close enough to be considered dupes–I just wanted to walk you through the potentials I considered but nothing came close.  (I heartily invite you to chime in if you know of a dupe!)
