Zoya Liberty Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blue sugary sparkle” witha Pixie Dust finish. It’s a medium, lightly brightened blue with sugary sparkle and a textured, matte finish. I don’t have anything like this in my stash that I can think of, due to the textured finish. The color reminded me a bit of Zoya Phoebe, which has a matte finish, but it isn’t raised or “sugary.” China Glaze Blue Iguana has a similar blue coloring and also has larger shimmer, but it’s not as sparkly or as textured as Liberty (they are not dupes, but they’re more alike when you apply a top coat over Liberty).
Aveda Hibiscus Petal Essence Face Accents ($24.00 for 0.30 oz.) is described as a “nude highlighter to soft coral to bright coral.” Together, the blush swirls to create a subtly pink-tinted coral with a soft, beige-champagne shimmer-sheen finish and warm undertones. Tarte Curious is pinker. Too Faced Sweethearts is lighter and pinker. bareMinerals The Natural High has a stronger gold sheen. MAC Fleet Fast is darker. NARS Deep Throat is similar. Because this is a split-pan blush, it can be applied lighter/darker depending on how you swirl your brush. The individual shdaes consist of a deep, rich orange-red with a satin finish; light-medium rosy beige with a satin finish; and champagne beige with a champagne sheen.
Sugarpill Eyeshadows ($12.00 for 0.14 oz., each) currently has a range of thirteen permanent shades, which I have covered as they’ve been released. Because the initial launch was a few years ago, I’ve been wanting to re-do swatches so that they can be included in the Swatch Gallery (which requires everything be shown individually). This morning, I was like, “DO IT!” And so it has been done. I’ve also included four shades that were more recently released in the Heartbreaker palette (which didn’t need to be redone) for completion. Note that the photos of the eyeshadow pans are old (just updated the swatches). (There is also @#$%!, which was a limited edition shade, but need to take full photos of it prior to swatching, as I’ve never used it before!)
