Revlon Neptune Star Diamond Lust Eyeshadow

Revlon Neptune Star Diamond Lust Eyeshadow ($4.99 for 0.028 oz.) is a muted dark navy blue with multi-colored shimmer (preodminantly blue, green, and violet). The color payoff is sheer and looks almost muddied when it is applied dry, and when it’s applied wet, the navy blue starts to bubble forth. Dry, it has a similar color as Dior Smoking Blue, though it doesn’t have the same shimmer/glitter. Make Up For Ever #147 is closest in terms of overall color but lacks the glitter component.

Cult Nails Enticing Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Enticing Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “very sheer pale milky pink.” It’s also supposed to be “buidlable to an almost opaque finish.” It’s a soft pale pink with subtle yellow undertones. It’s semi-opaque after two coats with a hint of visible nail line. There’s also an incredibly fine white shimmer that almost disappears in natural light. I don’t have an extensive collection of sheerer shades, but my first instict would be to look in Essie’s catalog of colors. Essie French Affair is darker, cooler-toned. Nubar Pink Lily is a little starker, because it’s opaque, but the colors are quite close, though Pink Lily is a cream finish. China Glaze Encouragement is also similar–to me this is the closest–and the major difference is this has larger shimmer. China Glaze Something Sweet is a bit darker and is a cream finish.

Tom Ford Sugar Pink Ultra Shine Lipgloss

Tom Ford Sugar Pink Ultra Shine Lipgloss ($45.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with yellow undertones and a creamy finish. It’s mostly opaque in color coverage, but there is some translucency. The closest dupe I could come up with is Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet, which is also a yellow-toned pink, though it reads a little beige-like compared to Sugar Pink, and it has shimmer. MAC Curvaceous is plummier.  What makes it harder to dupe is the amount of color coverage it has–a lot of glosses are sheer to semi-sheer.
