Chanel Riviere Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow

Chanel Riviere Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale shimmering green with subtle golden shimmer. A warmer, seafoam green, if you will. I couldn’t think of any shades that really were that similar. Urban Decay Money is darker, bluer. MAC Fresh & Mint is cooler-toned, almost bluish. Dior Garden Pastels was darker, more intense.

Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “black plum and golden pearl.” It’s a blackened purple with flecks of gold sparkle. When it’s sheered out, it tends to look grayer and almost brown-ish with only a hint of purple. MAC Ash Violet is much lighter and more of a real purple hue. Make Up For Ever #6L is lighter, more red-toned, no gold shimmer. MAC Added Goodness is similar–perhaps a little browner.

Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer

Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “medium steel blue base with heavy gold, blue, and pink iridescent metallic sparkle.” It’s a cool-toned, purpled blue with a hint of steely gray skies, then coated with blue, green, and dark pink sparkle. I don’t have anything quite like it. Zoya Skylar has one or two similarities, but it is largely different. China Glaze Skyscraper is a similar blue, but the base color is darker, and it has mostly silver sparkle.

Burberry Blossom Light Glow Natural Blush

Burberry Blossom Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a coral-orange–there is the merest hint of pink in the background–with a natural finish, just a smidgen of a sheen. It’s a lot like the just-reviewed MAC Supercontinental, which is barely lighter. MAC Fleet Fast is darker, redder. Chanel Tweed Brun Rose is more orange. Tarina Tarantino Feather is pinker and lighter. Tarte Blissful is brighter, pinker. Tom Ford Flush is more vibrant and a bit pinker. MAC Ripe Peach is more orange, lighter.

Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink nude with gold flecks.” This is a plummy brown with a hint of mauve and multi-colored shimmer–it almost looks holographic at certain angles. Holographic or not, it is chocked full of shimmer, though, as the formula might lead you to believe. Revlon Rosegold is pinker, warmer. MAC Blessedly Rich has more orange and copper in it. Bobbi Brown Beach is sheerer and has more gold/bronze shimmer. MAC Social Light is similar. MAC Explicit is a bit lighter. MAC Spree is browner.

Bobbi Brown Turquoise Nail Lacquer

Bobbi Brown Turquoise Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.37 fl. oz.) is described as a “flat vibrant turquoise.” It’s a little bluer than what I think of when I hear “turquoise,” but it’s not a true blue–definitely a blue-teal. (Even if you google “turquoise,” you’ll see it varies quite a bit from green to blue.) It has a cream finish. Estee Lauder Teal Topaz is lighter, less blue. Illamasqua Muse is darker, bluer. Orly Viridian Vinyl is a smidgen less blue. Butter London Artful Dodger is similar as well, though it, too, is less blue.
