bareMinerals Amped Pink Loud & Clear Lip Sheer

bareMinerals Amped Pink Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sheer fuchsia pink.” When swatched, it was a sheer medium pink–it read neutral, almost yellow-toned, even though it certainly looked fuchsia in the tube. On lips, it made my lips look brighter, pinker, and generally kept the corpse-lip look at bay. It has a soft shine to finish it off. NARS Beverly Hills is slightly darker.

China Glaze Creative Fantasy Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Creative Fantasy Nail Lacquer ($3.25 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “grape neon.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark purple with red undertones and jelly finish. I was very surprised that I wasn’t able to find anything that was really close in color, but in particular, nothing that was close in color and in texture within the purple polishes I’ve reviewed previously. Illamasqua Jo’mina (much, much lighter, more of a lavender) and Illamasqua Poke (closer in color but has shimmer and no jelly texture/finish) were the only shades that came close to the same tone of the color.

Zoya Blu Nail Lacquer

Zoya Blu Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lucky hyacinth blue cream.” It’s a pale sky blue with a cream finish. There’s a real softness to the color, and there’s also an almost indigo-tint that makes it less overtly blue. NARS Kutki is bluer, slightly darker. Cult Nails Princess is much, much darker and has shimmer, but the tone of the blue is similar. Chanel Coco Blue is much darker. Chanel Riva is more aqua.

bareMinerals Berry Remix Loud & Clear Lip Sheer

bareMinerals Berry Remix Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sheer ripe berry.” When swatched, it looks like a sheer, glossy berry pink. Applied, it tints my lip color to a slightly darker pink, but it still looks sheer and natural. It looked similar to NARS Beverly Hills or NARS Cadaques (or really, a mix).

China Glaze Bend Over Backwards Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Bend Over Backwards Nail Lacquer ($8.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “pepper red shimmer.” It’s a rich, molten orange-red with fine red shimmer running through it. The finish is almost metallic but very… fluid. Cult Nails Annalicious has more gold shimmer but is very close–perhaps a litle less orange-toned. Milani Melt With U has larger shimmer. Essie Braziliant is more orange, less shimmery.
