Color Club Eternal Beauty and Angel Kiss Nail Lacquers

Color Club Eternal Beauty Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is cool-toned, violet purple with holographic shimmer. I don’t have anything like this that I can think of–not even this type of purple.  Angel Kiss Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a lightened, medium-blue with a hint of green and holographic shimmer.  I wish I could tell you dupes, but I couldn’t think of anything for either of these two shades, both because of the holographic shimmer but also the color itself because of the high shimmer content, it gives it a very different finish than other potential dupes.

Sephora Surfin’ USA and Midnight Swim Colorful Eyeshadow

Sephora Surfin’ USA (14) Colorful Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “azure blue shimmer.” It’s a bright, medium blue with a hint of yellow that gives it an aqua/teal leaning (but it’s more blue than it is teal). It has a pearly sheen. Shades like Inglot #322, Inglot #371, MAC Electric Eel, and NARS Mad, Mad World #1 are all a bit bluer and matte, so the finish makes them rather different in practice. Make Up For Ever #118 is lighter. Make Up For Ever #83 is slightly greener-tinted and has a golden shimmer. MAC Parrot is darker. Sugarpill Afterparty is bluer, darker. Urban Decay Peace is lighter. Urban Decay Clash is also bluer (and a cream product). NARS South Pacific #1 is lighter. See comparison swatches here.
