NARS Lovejoy Blush

NARS Lovejoy Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “shimmering bronzed rose.” It’s rosy-red with a little brown thrown in paired with a golden shimmer-sheen. MAC Ring of Saturn is more orange-red, brighter–the two look a little more similar if used softly. Tom Ford Savage is similar but seems a smidgen lighter and has a mostly matte finish. MAC Buddy Up seems fairly close but doesn’t have the golden sheen. MAC Stratus is darker, a little redder.

Hourglass Muse Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick

Hourglass Muse Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “coral red.” It’s a vibrant coral-red with a neon quality that gives it this really bright, bold look. This is a color that says, “Hey! You! Did you see THIS lip color?!” It has a strong warm, orange pull to it. Illamasqua Mistress is the closest dupe I could think, even though it’s a gloss–color-wise, they’re very similar with Muse being slightly more intense. Wet ‘n’ Wild 909D is similar but a bit softer. Dolce & Gabbana Cosmopolitan is lighter, less red.

Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer

Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “medium steel blue base with heavy gold, blue, and pink iridescent metallic sparkle.” It’s a cool-toned, purpled blue with a hint of steely gray skies, then coated with blue, green, and dark pink sparkle. I don’t have anything quite like it. Zoya Skylar has one or two similarities, but it is largely different. China Glaze Skyscraper is a similar blue, but the base color is darker, and it has mostly silver sparkle.

Butter London Trustafarian Nail Lacquer

Butter London Trustafarian Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delightful sage green [with] a golden holographic finish.” It’s a subtly warmed up light-medium green with yellow undertones and holographic glitter. It reminds me of meadow-y greens for some reason, though I’m sure that brings up a totally different color in your mind! It’s a soft, pale green. Softer than sage but similar in some of the muted qualities of the color. Milani Hi-Tech is the only holographic green polish I could think of, but it’s much darker and less yellow-toned. Do you have any dupe suggestions?
