NARS Deep Throat Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “flirty, sheer peach.” It’s a warm coral with a hint of pink and a golden shimmer-sheen. NARS Amour is darker, more vibrant, and has no shimmer. MAC Fleet Fast is slightly darker, more orange. Tarte Glisten is very comparable, though it has a stronger gold shimmer. NARS Orgasm is a touch lighter and more shimmery. theBalm Frat Boy is like a matte version–the colors are very, very similar.
L’Oreal Liquid Diamond Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) silvery-gray with a purple tint and a frosted finish. When it’s dry, it’s rather sheer, and when you apply it wet, the finish becomes more metallic and the color payoff is much improved. MAC Hold That Pose! is browner. Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit is less metallic, browner. MAC Idol Eyes is somewhat similar, but the payoff is so terrible, it’s hard to be sure! What I liked about this shade was that it doesn’t seem to be readily dupeable (at least nothing I could think of). It’s a much more nuanced shade than much of the rest of the color range.
NARS Angelika Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “cotton candy pink with gold and silver sparkle.” It’s a blue-based light-medium pink with larger silver sparkle and a very subtle gold sheen. MAC Peony Petal is bluer in undertone and lighter. MAC Florida is more magenta. Tarte Amused is slightly darker and more vibrant. MAC Amazon Princess is more magenta–purpler, less pink.
