NARS Rouge Tribal Larger Than Life Lipgloss

NARS Rouge Tribal Larger Than Life Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic burgundy.” It’s a burgundy-red with strong brown undertones and subdued ruby red shimmer. MAC Lasting Achievement is a dark berry with no real brown. MAC Gertruyd is similar but much sheerer, so it appears lighter. Illamasqua Hermetic is a much more intense and opaque version. NYX Vixen is a little less brown. Bobbi Brown Midnight Violet is a little more plum, less red.

NARS Douceur Blush

NARS Douceur Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “soft pink brown.” It’s a subtly warm-toned light-medium brown with a pinky sheen. It does look a bit pinker in the pan than on my skin tone (which has yellow undertones), so if you have pink undertones, you might see those pink undertones come through on you more than they did on me. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane is similar, though a bit more pigmented and matte in finish. MAC Pressed Amber is darker, browner. MAC Darkly My Dear is darker, slightly more plum. Tarte Exposed is pinker. MAC Her Own Devices is lighter, kind of peach. MAC Prim & Proper is darker and more plum.

Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “candied pink” and has a “3D holographic” finish. It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with gold-to-orange flakies. It has a jelly-like finish and look to it. I don’t have anything that looks like this, but if you had a brightened pink jelly and a flakie top coat, you could probably dupe it that way. Zoya Lara is similar in color but has a cream finish. OCC Palare is slightly bluer in tone and doesn’t have a jelly-like finish.
