Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “light heather pink.” It’s a soft, pale pink with subtle cool undertones–it almost looks warm in the swatch but cooler on my lips. Guerlain Rose Piquant is a touch darker. Chanel Charme is darker and more shimmery. Guerlain Rose Innocent is similar, slightly paler. Estee Lauder Mauve Mirage is similar, perhaps a touch darker.

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo

Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo ($19.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold” and an “icy silver.”  Each eyeshadow is 0.13 oz., which is over double the average-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.), and the price point is very palatable for two shades.  A lot of the duos, though, are more basic than not, so whether any are must-haves depends on the size of your stash.

Spadaro Sole Nero Eau de Parfum Review and Photo

Spadaro Sole Nero Eau de Parfum ($135.00 for 100ml) has notes of Italian grapefruit, bergamot, white pepper, cumin, musk, sandalwood, almond, and vanilla.  The bottle I have is sample packaging, so what is available at retail is larger and prettier–it looks a lot like a lantern.  The bottle design is actually what made me notice the brand to begin with!

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is dirty red-brown. It’s hard to describe it, because it looks red, technically, but red brings images of bright, ruby reds to mind, whereas this is a much more muted red with a lot of brown to bring down the intensity. There’s a very faint sprinkling of gold shimmer that’s barely noticeable once applied. MAC Buddy Up is similar but browner. NARS G-Spot is very similar but has a different finish. NARS Oasis is much more plum.
