Estee Lauder Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, permanent formula available in 12 shades. It’s supposed to be a medium coverage lipstick with a lustrous finish. My order just arrived yesterday, so here are some swatches! 🙂
Each harmony associates 5 selected shades for a flawless result: 1 base to smooth out and illuminate, 2 nude shades and 2 smoky shades for a smoldering look. Each shade can be applied alone or layered to create a perfect harmony. Every look is possible, from nude to smoky, according to your wishes. Shades come in matte, satin or metallic finishes and are enriched with Light Pigments, reflecting light to make the eyes seem more open and brighter.

Smashbox Punked Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It was more of a satin than a matte, as it had some sheen. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy, and glided on without dragging on the lips. It had good pigmentation, which distributed evenly across the lips. This shade wore well for four and a half hours but had some color pull into lip lines over time. MAC Halsey (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Petit Four (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Color ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is supposed to be a “richly pigmented,” “high shine, crease-proof” formula that can be used “wet or dry.” I initially thought it was a cream eyeshadow when I bought it, but it is actually a loosely packed powder–not unlike Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows or L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. The feel and performance was similar across the four shades. The formula was richly pigmented, smooth, blendable, and easy to apply on the lid, but the one area that was less impressive was wear–I did get noticeable creasing after six hours. I tried it over an eyeshadow primer (Smashbox 24-Hour), and it seemed to solve longevity issues, as it lasted until I took it off (12 hours later). They can be used wet or dry, but I did not really find the two methods to differ in terms of results or ease of application.
