L’Oreal Glistening Garnet Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Glistening Garnet Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) is a berry-tinted pink with a soft, frosted finish. When applied dry, it has a slightly more subdued, redder appearance–it’s not quite opaque. When applied damp, it takes on a pinker hue and the frosted finish is more pronounced, and the color itself is opaque. At a glance, you’d think it was similar to MAC Cranberry, but it’s not at all–Cranberry is much, much darker, more of a burgundy (so it has more brown in it than pink). MAC Moon Rose is pinker. Milani Pink Twice is pinker as well.

NARS Amour Blush

NARS Amour Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink.” It’s a darkened pink-tinted coral. It doesn’t read peachy-pink to me, which tends to be a lighter, warmer color. The finish is matte. Illamasqua Dixie is brighter, less pink. Tarte Blissful is more orange, slightly lighter/softer. theBalm Frat Boy is slightly lighter. MAC Posey is very close, perhaps pinker. MAC Fleet Fast is more coral and has golden orange shimmer. On my cheeks, it looks more pink than coral, but it’s not strictly pink.

Bobbi Brown Pink Seashell Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Pink Seashell Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pale peachy pink.” It’s a soft pink-tinted coral that’s just slightly warm-toned. MAC Razzledazzler looks almost exactly the same–I’d say slightly more opaque, perhaps less pink. Burberry Devon Sunset is more orange. MAC So Vain is darker and more orange. NARS Niagara is pinker, brighter, and more opaque.
