China Glaze Rare & Radiant Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “extraordinarily rich gold.” It’s a dirty, yellowy gold with antique gold/brown and green. It flashes from a dirty, antique gold to grass green. As I mentioned earlier this week, Color Club Editorial is very comparable, as they both are similar to Chanel Peridot. Though not quite as similar, Ozotic #507 is worth mentioning–it just shifts more to blue than to green.
Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink Blush ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “warm baby pink.” It’s a light-medium strawberry pink with subtle blue undertnoes against my skin tone. It looked a little cool-toned in the pan, too. The finish was mostly matte. MAC Stay Pretty is lighter. NARS Angelika is a smidgen darker and bluer-toned. MAC Weekend Getaway is similar but cream. Tarte Dollface is lighter. It seemed darker than the original Pretty Pink that came in a palette previously.
MAC Marilyn Monroe Eye Kohls ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) sees the promotion of two permanent shades: Fascinating (intense matte white) and Smolder (intense black). If you purchase from the collection, the pencils you’ll receive come in a glossy black box and are packaged in a glossy black pencil, compared to the matte black packaging of the permanent shades. They cost exactly the same, and while online is listing these as 0.05 oz. (or 1.45g), my pencils say 0.048 oz. (or 1.36g), making them the same size as the permanent ones as well.
MAC Forever Marilyn Beauty Powder ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “sheer pale peach highlighter.” It’s a very light pink-tinged peach. In the pan, it looked rather peachy, but when swatched on my arm as well as applied to my cheek, it looked a bit pink. MAC Play It proper is similar but pinker in the pan. MAC Lightscapade is lighter, yellowy. MAC Light Sunshine is more shimmery. The color is as described; it’s sheer, though somewhat buildable.
