The richness of these colors translates to serious opacity in a single swipe.
First Time (Limited Edition) is close in hue to Blush Nude or perhaps closer yet if Blush Nude and Spanish Pink had a baby. Of the four shades First Time differs the most from the suggested dupes from the core Lip Color Line.
Pussycat has a touch more purple than Casablanca, but they are quite comparable in hue.
Flame is a touch more orange than Wild Ginger, but they are very closely related shades.
Plum Lush is a touch less purple than Violet Fatale, but they are closely enough related that your selection should be based less upon hue, and more upon the desired finish.
Black Dahlia (Limited Edition) and Bruised Plum are very close, but there is a certain intensity in the blackened base that one finds in Black Dahlia that does not exist in Bruised Plum.
For vampy lip enthusiasts who have a nearly irrational penchant for Tom Ford lipsticks, then you will appreciate seeing Tom Ford Black Orchid (a mythical beauty) juxtaposed to Black Dahlia and Bruised Plum. These are three of the most sublime vampy shades ever created.
As you can see Black Dahlia is essentially a more matte version of Black Orchid, and Bruised Plum is a slightly less intense version of both. If you continue to mourn having missed out on Black Orchid, then I think that you will likely be more satisfied with Black Dahlia than with Bruised Plum. Additionally, if vampy is where your lipstick passions reside, then get Black Dahlia before it is gone since it is one of the two Limited Edition Lip Color Mattes (First Time is the other).
UPDATE: wefadetogray wanted to know if Ruby Rush is a blue-based red, and it is. but it is visually modified when swatched next to Flame (a decidedly bright orange). Ruby Rush is a cool red with pink undertones as you can see from the swatch below.
J asked which shades I have from the Lip Color Matte collection- so here is a sneak-peek!

I hope that this makes your choices easier! Are you tempted by any of the shades? Do you have a preference in finish? Have you purchased any of these beauties yet? Which ones are calling your name?
