Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is dirty red-brown. It’s hard to describe it, because it looks red, technically, but red brings images of bright, ruby reds to mind, whereas this is a much more muted red with a lot of brown to bring down the intensity. There’s a very faint sprinkling of gold shimmer that’s barely noticeable once applied. MAC Scene to Be Seen (Inner) (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Modern Mandarin (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Clinique Fig Pop (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Evening Beige (340) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Taraji Glow (LE, $32.00) is brighter, cooler (80% similar). Bite Beauty Almond (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a limited edition, warm-toned summer quad that features a pale white gold, medium-dark fuchsia, coppery orange-coral, and deep, dark molten brown. It’s packaged in a metallic bronze case with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator and full-sized mirror inside.  The packaging feels and looks luxe, and despite its metallic finish, seemed to keep fingerprints pretty well-disguised.

MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil

MAC & Beth Ditto also includes four lip pencils, three of which I knew I reviewed fairly recently (December ’11). You can find Embrace Me, Entertain Me, and In Synch reviewed previously. 🙂  Even though it was permanent, I wasn’t sure if I reviewed MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil ($14.00 for 0.05 oz.), which is described as a “blackened plum.” It’s a really deep, dark wine burgundy with strong red undertones. This will work well with shades like MAC Soulfully Rich, MAC Prince Noir, and MAC Smoked Purple.
