Tom Ford Wet Violet Ultra shine Lipgloss ($45.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is a rich wine-berry with violet and pink shimmer. I couldn’t think of a perfect dupe for this exact hue, though I found some shades that are similar enough that they’re worth mentioning. MAC Color Saturation (because it recently debuted) is much, much lighter and appears more as a raspberry-pink. MAC Indigo Pink is pinker, redder, not as cool-toned or as berry. NARS Bougainville gives me a similar vibe, but the colors themselves are noticeably different–NARS’ shade is raspberry pink, not berry or purpled like Wet Violet. The closest shade I could think of was NARS Nana, which is redder and less purpled, but it has a similar vampy quality as well as similar application issues.
Milani Primary Runway Eyes Palette ($8.99 for 0.32 oz.) contains six shades arranged as thin strips inside a clear, plastic compact. It comes with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator (not particularly useful). The product can be used dry for a sheerer, shimmery color, or it can be used damp for greater intensity.
Essie Navigate Her Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “new growth green.” It’s a soft pastel green with subtle warm yellow undertones. The closest dupe I could think of was Zoya Tracie, which has subtle metallic shimmer running through it. It’s also a little yellower. Barielle Myrza’s Meadow is also a bit similar, though a touch lighter, and it has multi-colored flecks of sparkle. I love the yellow component to this, because it keeps it from being a cool, minty green that screams winter to me; the warmth gives it the freshness of springtime to me.
OCC Chlorophyll Lip Tar ($14.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-on teal.” It’s a green-based teal. Not unsurprising, but I don’t have a ready dupe suggestion for you. Illamasqua Apocalips is much, much bluer. Chlorophyll has a strong green pull. It also has a lightly glossy finish, and while it’s plenty pigmented, the liquid-like texture does cause it to settle into lip lines. The glossiness will fade after a half hour or so, and you can blend out the color a bit more, because it gets drier, so it won’t pull into the lip lines as much. It can take a little practice to get the hang of Lip Tars, but their major selling point–to me–is their longevity, because the wear can be anywhere from six to ten hours, depending on the shade and how much it stains.
