NARS Barrow Street Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner

NARS Barrow Street Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as a “seafoam green.” It’s a cool-toned, seafoam green with a matte finish. I don’t have too many mint/aqua eyeliners, but NARS Parrot Cay (which I always loved the look of but the wear left a lot to be desired) and Korres #12 are both similar–slightly lighter I would say.

Urban Decay Desperation Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Desperation Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “grayish taupe brown matte-satin.” It’s a darkened gray with brown undertones and a dusting of teal micro-shimmer with satin finish. This shade was in the Vice palette, but this seemed to apply a bit darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Festival #5 is slightly browner. Benefit Holy Smokes is similar in color but a cream product. bareMinerals Undercover is lighter. MAC Nebula is a touch browner. MAC Keep Your Cool is browner. Urban Decay Pistol is warmer, lighter.

Illamasqua Lies Cream Blusher

Illamasqua Lies Cream Blusher ($26.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “light pearly pink.” It’s a light pink with a pearly, frosted finish and subtle, warm yellow undertones. It actually reminded me of MAC Veronica’s Blush, only in a cream form. NARS New Order is cooler-toned. MAC Flower Fantasy is slightly darker.

MAC Embrace Me Lipstick

MAC Embrace Me Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “bright fuchsia cream.” It’s a medium-dark fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a satiny finish (almost like a matte with a hint shimmer). There are a lot of shades that are similar to this–and unsurprisingly, MAC makes most of them, but Maybelline Fuchsia Flash is just a touch less blue-based and has a glossier finish but is otherwise very similar. MAC Pink Pigeon is a touch darker. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl is less bright, slightly more magenta. MAC Candy Yum Yum is brighter, cooler-toned. MAC Dear Diary is a touch bluer-based. MAC Quick Sizzle is darker, pinker.
