Cult Nails Charming Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Charming Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a smoky lilac with subtle pink undertones and a very fine iridescent fuchsia-purple shimmer. NARS Pokerface is pinker. Illamasqua Faux Pas is darker, but has a similar smoky/muted quality. Zoya Lotus has a lot of red in it.  I couldn’t think of a close dupe for this shade.

Milani Caramel Brown Powder Eyeshadow

Milani Caramel Brown Powder Eyeshadow ($4.49 for 0.11 oz.) is a warmed over medium brown with a golden bronze shimmer and sheen. As gorgeous as this shade is, there are several shades that are similar to it (but you can’t beat the price point of Milani!). Urban Decay Chase is slightly more orange-toned. MAC Love Connection is less brown, more red. Buxom Golden Retriever is similar but darker, less golden/shimmered. Urban Decay Suspect is pretty close, though not as warm.

Estee Lauder Cosmic Pink Pure Color Sequin Finish Lip Gloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened medium pink with subtle yellow undertones and a cool white shimmer. The only gloss that seemed remotely similar was MAC Preppy, which is much, much sheerer and less vibrant. NYX Rose has a similar finish, though it’s a lipstick, and is a much more muted of a pink.
