MAC Sheer Plum Lipstick

MAC Sheer Plum Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “rouged chocolate” with a lustre finish.  It’s a reddened brown with semi-opaque color and a subtly glossy finish. For a lustre, it’s particularly pigmented, though it’s not completely opaque.  It glides on easily and leaves behind ample amount of color with a good amount of shine.  I actually found this lustre to be a bit moisturizing, as compared to other lustres that do nothing for me in the moisturization department.

Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry Rich Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright pink fuchsia.” It’s a bright, medium-dark pink with a little touch of fuchsia–it is blue-based but subtly so.  Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Colors are really comfortable to wear with their semi-matte finishes, creamy but lightweight textures, and rich color coverage. They are also scent- and taste-free, which should appeal to some. Wear was anywhere from four to six hours, with deeper shades like Cosmic Raspberry wearing for six hours.
