Chanel Caprice Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Caprice Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicate pink.” It’s a warm, yellow-toned light-medium peach-tinted pink with soft pink and gold micro-shimmer–surprisingly warm, actually. Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet is pinker, darker. Chanel Confidence is much pinker and cooler-toned.

NARS High Society Eyeshadow Trio

NARS High Society Eyeshadow Trio ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as “lavender,” “matte forest green,” and “iridescent amethyst.” It’s new and limited for fall. I love that NARS has individual wells for each shade of the trio, but it’s a little disappointing that the amount of product is only 0.03 oz. more than a duo yet $11 more. Their eyeshadow formula is described as highly pigmented, long-wearing, and crease-resistant.

NARS Exhibit A Blush

NARS Exhibit A Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “matte vivid red.” It’s a brightened medium-dark orange-red with a mostly matte finish. MAC Out for Fun is lighter, less red. MAC Modern Mandarin is lighter, more orange, less red. Benefit Cha Cha is more orange, slightly lighter. NARS Liberte is darker, rustier–not as bright.  On the cheeks, it can look as bright as the pan, or if applied more softly, you’ll get kind of a orange-coral look almost.

Cult Nails Untamed Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Untamed Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bubblegum pink sheer jelly polish with subtle multi-colored shimmer.” It’s a light-medium cotton candy pink with subtle blue undertones and light glitter (looked mostly white to me). MAC Saint Germain is a bit lighter and has a cream finish. MAC Vagabondage is a bit lighter as well and also has a cream finish. Zoya Rory looks a bit lighter because it has a ton of shimmer in it–cooler-toned, too. Zoya Lara is much darker. MAC Ice Cream Cake is a smidgen bluer-based and has a cream finish. MAC Galore Pink is less blue-based and has no shimmer.

China Glaze Love’s a Beach Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Love’s a Beach Nail Lacquer ($6.49 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sizzling hot pink.” It sizzles, all right! It’s a brightened neon pink with subtle yellow undertones and fine white shimmer. MAC Girl About Town is darker, blue-based, and has no shimmer. Zoya Reagan is purpler, cooler-toned, and has a cream finish. MAC Toco Toucan is darker and bluer. Essie Super Bossa Nova is more fuchsia and a bit darker. Urban Decay Woodstock is similar but a cream finish. Illamasqua Collide is a cream finish and doesn’t have shimmer–so it doesn’t look as pink.
