ColourPop Creeper & Ouiji Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Creeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “true classic blue red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a smooth, matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a soft feel to the touch once dried down. It didn’t budge at all for eight hours, and it faded evenly overall. I found the formula a little drying after five hours of wear. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Milani Romance (LE, $8.99) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Hellbent (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Charlotte (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Dragon Girl (P, $25.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ruby Rush (07) (P, $50.00) is glossier (90% similar). Anastasia American Doll (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Cruella (P, $25.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Rich Ruby (P, $7.99) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Estee Lauder Decisive Poppy (P, $30.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twenty, new and limited edition eyeshadows, just in time to kick off a long, holiday season of palettes. If you have a great disdain for Urban Decay’s micro-glitter or sparkle, then I would avoid this palette like the plague; eleven shades have micro-glitter, per the brand, and one more has “tonal sparkle.” Some are noticeable in practice, other shades have less and most sparkles drop during application so there isn’t as much fall out during wear, but I would recommend an adhesive primer for best results and minimal fall out. If you have a lot of Urban Decay palettes, you may find that there is more overlap with past iterations (even though these are technically new!). There are some really great shades in this palette, like Underhand, Discreet, Harlot, and Robbery, but there are some duds, like Grip, Flame, Low, and Crowbar.
