Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Juicy Melons La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a strawberry pink with a strong yellow undertone, so I could see it looking to coral–I think it’s a smidgen on the pinker side. This is like a much tamer variation of MAC Force of Love. Chanel Hyde Park is brighter and less yellow-toned. Guerlain Giulette is a bit brighter and has a gold sheen, but it is similar. MAC Sunny Seoul is a touch lighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is quite comparable, perhaps a touch darker.

Make Up For Ever #3 is similar. Make Up For Ever #75 is more magenta.

NARS Madly Blush

NARS Madly Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “warm soft-focus seashell pink.” It’s a medium brown with a hint of orange and peach gold shimmer that translates as mostly a sheen when applied. I didn’t really detect pink in it–perhaps if you have pink undertones, it may be more noticeable.  MAC Peachtwist is less brown, redder. MAC Soft Sand is a bit browner. Illamasqua Writhe is browner and has a stronger sheen.
