Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 Eye Palette ($59.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a pastel-hued palette that contains four shades described as, “pearl violet,” “jade green,” “sheer gold,” and “greige.” The palette is designed to add luminosity to the eye.
MAC Casual Colour features four shades of MAC Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.), and these shades are: Delicate (pale sheer ballet pink), Fiestaware (mid-tone orange coral), Please Me (mid-tone warm pink), and Style Tip (soft pink nude).
Bobbi Brown Silver Moon Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “light silvery glitter.” The description is rather accurate: it’s a light silver glitter with large, chunky particles. There’s really no underlying color, just silver glitter that’s suspended in an almost clear base. The closest dupe I could think of was Bobbi Brown Tinsel.
MAC Hey, Sailor! Lipglasses ($15.50 for 0.10 oz.) include five shades: Blessedly Rich (rich pale coral), Cut Loose (white gold with pearl), Orange Tempera (pale peach), Riviera Life (bright tangerine), and Send Me Sailing (bright yellow red). Orange Tempera is a repromote.
It looked a bit pale and pastel when swatched, but it should flatter a wider range of skin tones once it is applied, because it’s not fully opaque and lets the natural lip color shine through, which will, inevitably, alter the way the color looks based on your natural lip color. This formula is supposed to be extremely hydrating (purportedly “for eight hours after application”). The color applies with quite a bit of pigmentation, but there’s that soft, slightly transparent-nature of this type of finish that makes it less heavy. Although, the press release says the formula “provides translucent shine with sheer yet radiant color,” and this applies rather opaque.
