Zoya Hazel Nail Lacquer

Zoya Hazel Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.” is described as a “full-coverage, blue green foil metallic.” This is a silvery-blue foil metallic with flakes of dirty gold in it. I don’t have anything quite like it, and the only polish that even was reminiscent of it was Zoya Crystal with is much bluer.  I always love when I come across a color that I haven’t see done before (or, even if only done a few times).

Tom Ford Blush Guilt & Brushed Amber Illuminating Cheek Colors

Tom Ford Blush Guilt Illuminating Cheek Color ($58.00 for 1.0 oz.) is described as a “natural, radiant glow.” It’s a warm-toned, pink bronze with a glowing, illuminating sheen. Of the two shades for summer, this is the most dupable, as it doesn’t add a lot of color, just sheen. It’s not as warm-toned as the other illuminator, Fire Lust, which has a liquid consistency, and the form of this one makes it easier to apply in specific spots, rather than mixed with foundation or moisturizer.

Essie First Timer Nail Lacquer

Essie First Timer Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “adorable newbie green.” It’s a more vibrant take on mint green–there’s a little green and aqua mixed together to create something deeper and richer than your typical pastel mint green, but it’s not neon or a medium-colored shade either. Dior Samba is a bit darker, not quite as bright. Illamasqua Nomad is similar, perhaps a bit less green.

Tom Ford Fire Lust Skin Illuminator

Tom Ford Fire Lust Skin Illuminator ($65.00 for 0.68 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering, peach-pink.” It’s a warm-toned, golden-shimmered coral-orange with a pearly sheen. This is an illuminator, not a blush, so if you’re more in the market for something with substantial coloring to work as a blush, try perusing the coral swatch gallery.
