Color Club First Looks Nail Lacquer

Color Club First Looks Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blue green metallic.” This is an incredibly rich, inky blackened navy blue with bluish-teal micro-shimmer. The way the shimmer is catches the light makes the polish look like it’s glowing on the nails. NARS Night Flight has larger blue shimmer. MAC Biker Blue is bluer with larger shimmer. Rescue Beauty Lounge Under the Stars has much larger shimmer (more like particle glitter) that is sparse.

China Glaze Rare & Radiant Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Rare & Radiant Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “extraordinarily rich gold.” It’s a dirty, yellowy gold with antique gold/brown and green. It flashes from a dirty, antique gold to grass green. As I mentioned earlier this week, Color Club Editorial is very comparable, as they both are similar to Chanel Peridot. Though not quite as similar, Ozotic #507 is worth mentioning–it just shifts more to blue than to green.

Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink Blush

Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink Blush ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “warm baby pink.” It’s a light-medium strawberry pink with subtle blue undertnoes against my skin tone. It looked a little cool-toned in the pan, too. The finish was mostly matte. MAC Stay Pretty is lighter. NARS Angelika is a smidgen darker and bluer-toned. MAC Weekend Getaway is similar but cream. Tarte Dollface is lighter.  It seemed darker than the original Pretty Pink that came in a palette previously.
