Zoya Suri Nail Lacquer

Zoya Suri Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “royal purple metallic.” It’s a rich, royal purple with violet and amethyst micro-shimmer. I couldn’t recall anything from past reviews that compared that closely with this shade. China Glaze Fault Line has similar coloring, but it’s a crackle polish. Zoya Mimi would be the next closest, though it’s a bit more blue-based and has much larger shimmer. Do you have any dupe suggestions? I’d love to hear them!

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipglass

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl oz.) is described as a “hot pink.” It’s a brightened medium pink, kind of strawberry-pink like, with subtle yellow undertones. It’s not quite bright enough to be a true hot pink–at least not on lips, though it’s brighter in the tube than on. MAC Please Me is lighter, while Illamasqua Indulge is darker and brighter.

Illamasqua Naked Rose Blush

Illamasqua Naked Rose Blush ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as as “soft neutral pink.” It’s a light-medium rosy pink with a mostly neutral undertone (against my warmer complexion, it seems to pull just barely cool-toned). It has a mostly matte finish and true-to-pan color. MAC Crew is lighter, yellower. Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel is lighter, more yellow-toned, a bit brighter. MAC Stunner is more yellow-toned and has a strong sheen. Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink is a bit cooler-toned. MAC Dame has a smidgen of plum in it.

NARS TV Party Nail Lacquer

NARS TV Party Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid orange.” It’s a medium-dark orange with a cream finish. It’s vibrant without being neon. Nails Inc. Porchester Place is a bit less orange, almost subdued in a way. Illamasqua Gamma is brighter. Zoya Jancyn is lighter. MAC Morange is darker and more red-toned.  It’s bright without being blindingly neon, and it’s not too dark.  It also doesn’t have strong red undertones, so it is a bit different than some other oranges I have in my stash.
