MAC Light Medium Sheer Mystery Powder

MAC Light Medium Sheer Mystery Powder ($65.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a sheer, pressed powder. Each year, MAC launches it with their “couture” collection (typically at the end of the year), and this is one of three shades. Light Medium is likely a good bet for NC/NW20. It has a mostly neutral undertone, and when sheered out, matches my forearm pretty well (which is around NC20).  It also is available in Medium Plus and Dark Secret.

China Glaze Escaping Reality Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Escaping Reality Nail Lacquer ($7.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon raspberry pink.” It’s a vibrant medium-dark pink with a cream finish. There is definitely a neon element to the color, as it is very bright, and it has the signature quick dry down of neons and the semi-matte finish. China Glaze Love’s a Beach is very similar in color, but it has shimmer in it. NARS Anardana is darker, redder. MAC Girl About Town is a darker pink. Zoya Lolly is more matte and not quite as neon.

Too Faced Marshmallow Bunny La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Marshmallow Bunny La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “marshmallow pink.” It’s a soft, light-medium pink with subtle yellow undertones. A lot of lighter pinks like this one tend to have cool undertones, so it’s nice to see one with some warmth. MAC Vivid Imagination is darker by several shades. MAC Angel is less warm–almost gray-ish in comparison. Cle de Peau #106 is a smidgen lighter.

Ozotic #904 Nail Lacquer

Ozotic #904 Nail Lacquer (AU $12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) looks like lemon drops in the bottle, but the way it looks applied really just depends on what you apply it over. On its own, it’s a light-medium, yellow. When I layered it over a purple, you could see the sparkle shift from golden yellow to green. I haven’t reviewed a lot of duochrome/tri-chrome kind of polishes, so I couldn’t think of a dupe. The duochrome is a lot like China Glaze Rare & Radiant, Color Club Editorial, and Chanel Peridot–with a stronger start on the golden end of the spectrum. None of those are dupes, since those are full-color polishes and not shimmer/micro-glitter.
