Buxom Euphoria True Hue Blush

Buxom Euphoria True Hue Blush ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “lively coral.” In the pan, it looks like an orange-coral, but when I swatched it, the color was much more medium orange with a more tangerine-like hue when blended out. Illamasqua Expose is darker, less bright. MAC Optimistic Orange is a touch darker. NARS Gina is browner, more subdued.

Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis

Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a sheer, shimmering champagne gold with flecks of copper-red. I’m pretty sure this is a renamed version of Golden Light (also known as Golden Era and or Lumiere or #207), and while it may be called Diorling, the number is #207. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar coloring, but it’s opaque and does not have any red shimmer/sparkle. Chanel Diwali is more of an antique gold (less yellow). OCC Cruising is a stronger yellow gold and has a lot more shimmer/glitter. Readers mentioned some great dupe potentials here as well! 🙂
