L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a metallic, yellow gold. There’s a slightly subdued quality to the overall color–by a little brown–that keeps it from being a yellow/orange kind of gold. This is why it’s not the same as L’Oreal’s Eternal Sunshine,, though if you rarely wear gold, one will do; or, if you find that Eternal Sunshine turns orange-y, you might prefer Gold Imperial. Chanel Apprence is browner. Urban Decay Blitz is very similar–less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is yellower.

OCC Electric Grandma Lip Tar

OCC Electric Grandma Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “electrified true, classic coral.” It’s a brightened orange with tangerine shimmer and a slight pink tinge. Guerlain Orange Euphorique is more subdued. Chanel Sari d’Eau is darker. guerlain Gil is darker, redder. Guerlain Gipsy is darker and redder with less shimmer. MAC Vegas Volt is pinker.  I was actually surprised that I didn’t find anything more similar to this, but the brightness paired with the less-obvious orange-tones made it tough to dupe.

Zoya Electra Nail Lacquer

Zoya Electra Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “micro-fine diamond holographic glitter mixed with large silver holographic bar tinsel in a clear base.” It has holographic micro-glitter along with holographic bar glitter, which looks like silver tinsel on the nail, until you angle it just right or the light catches it, and then you get the holographic effect. I don’t have anything like this myself, and all I could think of was Zoya’s holiday collection last year, which featured pink, green, and blue horizontal bar glitter polishes.
