Zoya Daul Nail Lacquer

Zoya Daul Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “medium red-toned purple base with heavy purple and gold iridescent metallic sparkle.” It’s a medium violet purple with red undertones and plenty of pale gold sparkle. The sparkle particles are fairly large, bordering on micro-glitter but flatter and smoother. Zoya Tru has a similar base color but less shimmer and copper-red-colored shimmer at that. Zoya Dannii is lighter, more lavender.

Hourglass Raven Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick

Hourglass Raven Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “orange-red.” It’s a vibrant, bold orange-red that’s much more orange than red. Nonetheless, it is extremely bright and attention-grabbing! The color is not that unusual; there are numerous orange-red lipsticks. MAC Strut Your Stuff is a smidgen lighter. Guerlain Genna is very similar but has a sheen. Estee Lauder Extravagant Red is similar but has gold shimmer. MAC Ruffian Red is less orange. OCC Stalker is quite similar.

Chanel Fleur de Lotus Joues Contraste / Blush

Chanel Fleur de Lotus Joues Contraste / Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “joyful color.” It’s a warm coral with a hint of pink and a satiny sheen. This is definitely a color we’ve seen pop up several times over the year. MAC Fleet Fast is similar, slightly darker and has a more golden sheen. Tom Ford Flush is brighter, more matte in finish. theBalm Frat Boy is pinker. Tarte Blissful is a touch pinker, brighter, and more matte.

Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer

Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant magenta nail lacquer flecked with red, blue, and gold micro-particles.” It’s a glittery extravaganza that features magenta, blue, and gold particles. I don’t have an extensive stash of glitter polishes, but I did go through what I could. China Glaze CG in the City is more of a gray-ish purple with not much else going on. Rescue Beauty Lounge Frugalista has magenta glitter, but the other accompanying glitter is silver. Milani Hi-Res was the most similar that I had, but it has a purple base with holographic glitter/shimmer.

Guerlain Peach Boy Rose aux Joues Blush Duo

Guerlain Peach Boy Blush Duo ($50.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a vibrant orange-coral with a mostly matte finish and a gold-shimmered peach-coral. Combined, the two work together to create a soft gold-shimmered, light-medium coral-orange. For the dominant shade, the color is more intense than NARS Gilda but less intense than NARS Exhibit A; MAC Modern Mandarin has a soft sheen that makes it appear just a hair lighter, while MAC Out for Fun is very similar. Make Up For Ever #5 is also simimilar in color.
