Sephora Blonde Ambition & Roof Top Party Contour Eye Pencils

Sephora Blonde Ambition Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “beige.” It’s a pale, gilded beige with a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff in a single pass, but it’s only semi-opaque and buildable to about semi-opaque, even though I tried to layer it. It’s sufficient for brightening the eye, and it can be evened out with a brush to blend the eyeliner together. NARS Rue Bonaparte is matte. MAC Gilded White is very similar, perhaps a touch whiter. Other champagne eyeliners are warmer, more beige. See comparison swatches.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (Berry Couture, Fuchsia Shock, Lover’s Coral)

Revlon Berry Couture Super Lustrous Lipstick ($7.99 for 0.13 oz.) is a cool-toned, fuchsia-berry with a soft shine. The color was buildable from sheer to semi-opaque–it looked a bit like a lip stain, because of how thin the formula is, as it looks a lot like my natural lip; not heavy-looking at all. This particular shade wore for three and a half hours on me, which is shy of average, but for something with as much slip as this does going on, it was good wear. Revlon Sorbet is warmer. MAC Lickable is slightly brighter. Dior Lucky is warmer. See comparison swatches.

MAC Coppertone Blush

MAC Coppertone Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “peach brown [with a matte finish].” It’s a medium, muted orange with brown undertones and a matte finish. I get the “peach brown” description, though. NARS Gina is a touch lighter. MAC Seasonal Appeal is less warm. MAC Eternal Sun is a bit darker. MAC Barefaced is more shimmery. Chanel Espiegle is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Hare Polish Bisbee 2.0, Leap Light Year, Star Tropics Nail Lacquers

Hare Polish Bisbee 2.0 Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “turquoise jelly, accented with bright yellow-golden hexes and squares … plus gold shimmer.” It’s a cool-toned, aqua blue turquoise with square and hexagon-shaped gold shimmer (that turns almost green when it gets covered with the base color) and a fine dusting of gold shimmer. I applied two coats of polish, as the brand advised, and it was semi-opaque and had that signature squishy, slightly translucent jelly look. I couldn’t think of any dupes (not even just a turquoise jelly!).

Chanel Delicatesse Ombres Fleuries Eyeshadow Palette

Chanel Delicatesse Ombres Fleuries Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.14 oz.) has finishes that “range from matte to satin to shimmer,” with a “smudge-proof formula [that] can be applied dry for subtle shading, or dampened for more intense colour, all with long-wearing results.”  Overall, it’s a good palette with an interesting mix of colors and textures.  When trying it out, the green shade wasn’t as smooth or as easy to use as the other three shades, as it had an almost sparkly finish that made it less inclined to smooth out and bind together.  I didn’t encounter this issue with the other shades, though, and they applied more smoothly and were easier to blend.  I wore all four shades together, and the green one was very slightly creased after eight hours, while the rest held up without creasing and had only minor fading after nine hours of wear.
