China Glaze Cranberry Splash Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Cranberry Splash Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “ruby red shimmer.” It’s a rich, ruby-shimmered red that has almost metallic-like shimmer and subtle blue undertones.  Cult Nails Annalicious has larger shimmer and is a warmer red. Chanel Rouge Carat is very comparable. Nubar Pink Flame is a duochrome, so it sort of has a similar red, but it also has a flash of orange. Zoya Carrie Ann is a bit darker and has larger shimmer.

Burberry Antique Pink (303) Lip Velvet

Burberry Antique Pink (303) Lip Velvet ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pinky-brown with hints of beige. It’s a fairly neutral color, but if I had to pick, I’d say it leans warmer rather than cool, but I think it is rather neutral overall. Urban Decay Naked has a soft pink iridescence and is rosier overall. MAC Impressive is slightly darker and pinker. Bobbi Brown Heather Pink is a touch pinker. Guerlain Avarice is brighter, pinker. MAC Spice is very comparable. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude is browner–lacks the rosiness of this shade.

MAC Nocturnal Instincts Mattene Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “mid-toned greyed lavender.” It’s a pink-lavender with a semi-matte finish.

MAC I Like It Like That is pinker, more blue-based. MAC Dress It Up is pinker.

MAC Blue Gaze Nail Lacquer

MAC Blue Gaze Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark periwinkle.” It’s a bluish purple with a cream finish. At a glance, it’s indigo, and when you look more closely, there’s a definite, strong blueness to the color. SpaRitual blue Moon is a touch purpler and has shimmer. MAC Breezy Blue is similar. Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like is bluer.

MAC Perky Lipglass (Taste Temtpation)

MAC Perky Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone shimmering lilac.” It’s a light-medium lilac purple with lighter lilac and multi-colored shimmer. On my lips, it adds a light lavender color but it’s the multitude of shimmer that really stands out. MAC Docile is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Gone Romancin’ is lighter and more tinted. MAC Frozen Dream has less shimmer.

MAC Grey Friday Nail Lacquer

MAC Grey Friday Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “black matte with silver suede pearl.” It’s a charcoal black with multi-sized silver shimmer and micro-shimmer. The finish is not quite matte, but it’s not glossy. It has that suede-like finish MAC was hinting at. China Glaze Stone Cold has less shimmer. MAC Military is similar but more matte and has less shimmer. Nubar Midnight is the closest, as it has a higher shimmer content than the other two shades I mentioned, but it, too, has more of a matte finish.
