Guerlain Jicky (104) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Jicky (104) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is soft coral-brown with a very faint beige micro-shimmer. The color coverage is semi-opaque; it gave my natural lip colors a fair amount of color but did not cover my lip freckle entirely. It’s a bit darker, less beige and more coral, than Guerlain Voilette de Madame, but I don’t think you need to have both–they’re different enough, but having both makes sense only if you tend to wear these types of colors regularly and can spot those nuances. MAC Viva Glam VI is a little darker, redder. Guerlain Galante is more opaque and rosier. MAC For Keeps is similar but pinker and more opaque. MAC Mellowarm is a bit darker and frostier. Chanel Plumetis is lighter. Chanel Liberte is fairly close. Korres #45 Coral is more orange.

Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink with violet pearl.” It’s a semi-opaque medium-dark pink with fuchsia-pink shimmer and a glossy shine. It’s a little cooler-toned (more fuchsia) compared to MAC Dare to Dare, so MAC If It’s Pink comes a bit closer but still pinker. MAC Totally Bang is also similar but darker.

Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk Jewel Eyeshadow Palette

The top shade is a grayish lavender with a strong, white frosted finish. It’s super shimmery, but the texture is soft and smooth–vrey dense–and yields good color payoff. It reminded me of a more pigmented MAC Silverwear.

Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm Jewel Eyeshadow Palette

The top shade is a dirty, almost mint-esque, green. The color payoff is good, and the texture is soft and smooth when applied. None of the many, many green eyeshadows I’ve come across seemed to compare. Make Up For Ever #302 came the closest, buit it’s much more of a teal, whereas this one is still fairly green.

NYX Kiss in Casablanca Eyeshadow

NYX Kiss in Casablanca Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.09 oz.) is an ocean blue with a soft, frosted finish. What I love about this particular shade of blue is the overall soft, muted quality to it, but it hasn’t diminished the quiet vibrancy of the color at all. It’s like a mix of MAC Freshwater and MAC Deep Truth. MAC Pure Creation is a bit similar, too.
