theBalm Luscious Lani Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink champagne on ice.” On me, the pink seems to disappear, but I feel like this is a shade that will be subtly different depending on your skin’s undertones–those with cooler and pinker complexions will see the pink come through, while those with warmer and yellower complexions will get more of a peach-champagne shade. I found Lusicous Lani to be a glistening gilded peach champagne with a metallic-frost finish.
I received both Brown Sugar (which I’d describe as a gilded bronze) and Sin (which I’d describe as pale golden champagne) to review several months ago (back when they first released), they did not work for me at that time. I decided to hold off on a review and wait awhile before trying them again to see if perhaps it was something to do with the state of my skin or whatever. I tested both shades on and off since these launched (September, I believe), with each shade being trialed at least five times.
Sugarpill Chromalust ($12.00 for 0.19 oz.) recently launched seven new shades, and I have three of them to show you today: Paperdoll (lovely lavender with dazzling shimmer and sparkle), Tipsy (high-shimmer true grass green), and Weekender (metallic blue-violet with intense sparkle and sheen). All three shades are also vegan, just for reference! I hope to review the last remaining shade soon.
butter LONDON Pillar Box Red Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a cherry red with a decadent cream finish. It’s nearly pigmented enough to use only one coat, though I swatched with two. This is only a slightly pink-based red but it’s much closer to a true red than blue or orange-based. Though I’ve never seen a pillar box in real life, as far as I can tell, this seems quite similar in color!
Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deepened burgundy berry with soft violet and burgundy micro-shimmer. It’s semi-opaque with decent color pay off and definitely gives lips a darker, vampier look, but my natural lip color does peek through. What I really liked about this gloss though was how despite the deeper color, it did not settle into lip lines.
