Becca Tangerine Dream Nail Lacquer

Becca Tangerine Dream Nail Lacquer ($15.00 for 0.51 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright sunset coral.” It originally debuted in last summer’s Halcylon Days collection (yes, really, I’m that behind!). It’s still available within a very limited color range of polishes (six, to be exact).

Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (168) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (168) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a ruby-shimmered blue-based red with a subtle pinkness. The color payoff is mostly opaque, but there’s an underlying sheerness that gives it a translucent look. It’s pinker than MAC Prolong. Chanel Byzantin is darker, redder. Dior Technicolor is slightly darker. Guerlain Girly is pinker, less red. Estee Lauder Wild Violet is a touch purpler. MAC Perpetual Flame is slightly less red.  Guerlain’s Rouge Automatiques are supposed to have subtle sheerness–that translucency is part of the formula (it reminds me of jelly nail polishes).

Illamasqua Seduce Cream Blush

Illamasqua Seduce Cream Blush (£16.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “warm rose pink” with a “dewy finish.” It’s a medium-dark raspberry pink with warm undertones and a dewy finish. It can be very opaque if you wish it to be, but it is blendable if you want softer, sheerer color (and I caution you to use a dab at a time). It reminded me of MAC Mighty Aphrodite, perhaps blended. MAC Amazon Princess is a bit darker, redder. MAC Full Fuchsia is darker, pinker. Bobbi Brown Plum is darker, redder.

Butter London British Racing Green Nail Lacquer

Butter London British Racing Green Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark hunter green.” It’s a rich, luxuriously dark cool-toned green with soft emerald green sparkle. I don’t have much like it, which is always something I can appreciate. Illamasqua Kink is the closest in color, but it has such a different finish that the two really aren’t dupes. MAC Jade Dragon would be the next closest, but it’s darker, cooler-toned, and the shimmer is more dominant.

Dior Garden Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Garden Pastels Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as “pale pink, buttercup yellow, and luminous greens.” It’s new and limited edition just in time for spring. It’s slightly lighter compared to the usual Dior eyeshadow palette, which has 0.21 oz., while this palette only has 0.16 oz. I suspect it is due to the consistency difference somehow, since it doesn’t seem less full or smaller compared to other Dior eyeshadow palettes.
