Smashbox Punked, Violet Riot, Talk to Me Be Legendary Matte Lipsticks

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 Colors

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.

Make Up For Ever C205, C206, C207 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C205 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, light-medium cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being slippery, and forgiving on lips as it did not emphasize the natural texture of my lips. This shade lasted well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Clinique Wow Pop (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Preston (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Cotton Candy (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar).
