MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre

MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre ($26.00 for 0.31 oz.) is described as a “light cool pink.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based pink with a pearly sheen.  It was originally released with Spring Colour Forecast, but it will be making a reappearance in the Daphne Guinness collection that launches in-stores on December 26th.  As it was before, it is also limited edition.  MAC Overdyed is pinker, less blue. MAC Sakura is similar but can look pinker, depending on how you mix the shades. It has a soft feel against the skin and sits well on the skin without emphasizing pores, due to the more natural sheen in its finish. On my skin tone, it warms up a bit and looks less cotton candy pink and more plum, so it’s more wearable than I thought it might be.

Guerlain Voilette de Madame (101) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Voilette de Madame (101) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rosy pink with a neutral vibe. It delivers mostly opaque color coverage (my lip freckle is just barely peeking out). This is a soft, everyday kind of shade–it will instantly wake up your face, because it’s natural with enough pinkness to add a little extra color to your pout (unless you have more naturally pigmented lips, in which case, this may not do much for you!). It has a natural shine, and the texture is very creamy and soft. Chanel Jersey Rose is several shades lighter. Shiseido PK 327 is pinker and lighter, as is Cle de Peau #124. The color reminded me more of Guerlain Gentiane without the shimmer.

Estee Lauder Cyber Silver Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow

Estee Lauder Cyber Silver Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a dark silver-shimmered gray. It looks a bit darker, less silver (and certainly less metallic) when applied dry compared to when it is applied wet, where the metallic sheen and therefore silver nature of the hue comes through much more. Either way, though, the color payoff is tops. The shade reminded me of Dior Smoking Blue, but this is more metallic. It’s a little lighter compared to Bobbi Brown Silver and Urban Decay S&M.

Lancome Kitten Heel Color Design Eyeshadow

Lancome Kitten Heel Color Design Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “golden peach-y pink” with a shimmer finish. This is one of my personal favorite Lancome shades, because I’m all over any peach-pink eyeshadow! What I like about this one is that it is decidely pink with a golden sheen; often, these types of shades lean more orange (think MAC Melon pigment). I love that it’s more of a yellow-toned pink as the base color with the golden shimmer-sheen. The closest dupe I could think of was MAC Goody Goody Gum Drop which is similar but slightly cooler-toned and with a less noticeable golden sheen.

NARS Casablanca Lipstick

NARS Casablanca Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “classic, full-bodied coral.” It has a satin finish (so it’s part of the Satin Lipstick formula), which is described as a “lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color.” Casablanca is a softened tangerine orange with a natural shine and just about full color coverage. Chanel Sari Dore is more vibrant, while MAC Made to Order is glossier and has some shimmer in it. Bobbi Brown Soft Coral is lighter, while CoverGirl Delish is just slightly lighter.
