SpaRitual Slate Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “gray metallic shimmer infused with rhyolite.” It’s a gray-shimmered olive-tinged brown. I’d almost say it looks like taupe, but there’s this green hue that keeps peeking through, which makes me hesitate. When I was looking for dupes, the category that ended up resembling this most, because of the lighter antique golds (like Illamasqua Swinger and its own slew of dupes), but they were all quite lighter. Anyone have a dupe suggestion?
Tom Ford Enchanted Eyeshadow Quad ($75.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a limited edition palette described as “neutral.” It contains a pressed powder formula that can be used wet and dry, and the formula is different than the original quads released with the line. It is the same formula as Emerald Lust.
philosophy Boughs of Holly 3-in-1 Gel and philosophy Sparkling Cranberry 3-in-1 Gel (each $22.00 for 24 fl. oz.) are super-sized, holiday-themed scents in philosophy’s 3-in-1 formula (shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath). I am a long-time fan of philosophy’s 3-in-1, and there’s always at least one scent in our shower. We really try to finish one before opening another, but it can take months to get through a regular-sized bottle (16 fl. oz.)! Both of these holiday scents come in decorative heavy-duty cardboard cylinders–perfect for giving.
OCC Iced Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque snow white frost.” It’s a bright white with a shimmered, silver-tinted metallic sheen. You’d think a shade like this I’d be dupe-less, but alas! MAC Metal Maven is more silver. MAC Bubbles is similar in color but because it is very sheer, it looks pinker as my natural lip color came through quite a bit.
