Chanel Holiday Le Vernis

Chanel Holiday Le Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a bright medium-dark orange with a cream finish. MAC Morange is similar, a touch lighter. NARS Lal Mirchi is redder. MAC Kid Orange is redder. MAC Oriele is redder but muted. Essie Braziliant is darker, more red-toned.  It has some red undertones, but it’s more orange than red–definitely not coral.  There’s enough vibrancy for it to pop, but I wouldn’t describe it as a neon–there’s too much depth for that.

Revlon Papaya ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine

Revlon Papaya ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a semi-opaque coral-orange with soft white and gold micro-shimmer and a high-shine glossy finish. MAC Star Quality came to mind, because of its vibrancy, but it’s very pink in comparison. MAC Whoops! is much darker. It’s a lot like Hourglass Nectar, which doesn’t have any shimmer and is a touch more opaque (but doesn’t apply as evenly). MAC Exxxhibitionist differs a lot in texture, but the color is just a bit lighter. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is less vibrant and slightly pinker. MAC Double Dare is redder.

Chanel Delight Le Vernis

Chanel Delight Le Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a pale golden bronze with lighter champagne, copper, and bronze shimmer. It has a strong metallic, almost foil-like, finish. Urban Decay Superfreak is more pewter-like; less bronzy, more silver-gold. OCC Cruising is a golden yellow. MAC Soiree is the closest I could think of, but it has a rosiness to it. China Glaze Jingle Bells is much yellower.

Illamasqua Pivot Eyeshadow

Illamasqua Pivot Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “yellow green.” It’s a medium chartreuse green with strong yellow undertones and a matte finish. There are a lot of chartreuse shades on the market, but this shade is less dupeable because it has a fair amount of green in it–it is more green than yellow. MAC Swimming is darker, greener. MAC Lucky Green is a little yellower and has a shimmery finish. Make Up For Ever #171 is the closest shade, though it’s more vibrant, lighter, and has a frosted finish.

Lancome Stylista is slightly pinker. MAC Razzledazzler is pinker. Burberry Devon Sunset is pretty close, creamier rather than shimmery. MAC So Vain is a touch pinker and lighter.

NARS Anardana Nail Lacquer

NARS Anardana Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “azalea pink.” This is a vibrant pink-red with a cream finish. The undertones almost read neutral to me, but there is a subtle warm undercurrent that gives it an almost coral-red look to it against my skin tone. MAC Toco Toucan is much pinker. Zoya Kimber has a similar base color, though it’s a bit lighter, but it also has shimmer. China Glaze 108 Degrees is pinker and has shimmer. Illamasqua Collide is a smidgen pinker. China Glaze Heli-Yum is similar but not as vibrant. Zoya Dana is a touch pinker.
