Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W., Kidman’s Kiss, Super Cindy Hot Lips Lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W. Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky beige with warm undertones and a creamy, natural sheen. This shade is part of the original Kissing formula, so it is much creamier, a little weightier, and has more slip than the Matte Revolution range. It was also hydrating and more comfortable to wear over time, though this particular shade ended up applying somewhat streaky due to the amount of slip and the lighter color. It had semi-opaque coverage that did well into my lip lines over time. On me, it lasted for three and a half hours. Marc Jacobs Beauty Sonic Truth (244) (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Sublime Pleasure (LE, $17.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Estee Lauder Desirable (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Earthling (P, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). NYX French Kiss (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Weirdo (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Woodrose (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Taffy (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Urban Decay Native (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Estee Lauder Mischievous Rose (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud (P, $35.00) is darker (80% similar).

Anastasia Sweets Glow Kit

Anastasia Sweets Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four sparkling, metallic highlighters in a cardboard palette. It’s new and limited edition, and it is also exclusive to the brand’s website. As you might expect with the Glow Kit, it’s not for someone who only likes a subtle highlighter; it is most suitable for someone who likes bright, bold, sparkling, and/or metallic highlighters. For some skin tones, three of the four shades may also work as luminous blushes. Sassy Grape and Butterscotch have larger sparkle/glittery flecks in them, while Marshmallow and Taffy are smoother and have a finer shimmer overall. All four shades were pretty pigmented, wore for eight to nine hours, and were blendable on the skin, but all four did emphasize the texture of my skin; Marshmallow I could apply without emphasis if I was careful, but the other three still added texture to the skin even when applied sheer.

NARS Velvet Eyeliners (Part 1)

NARS Kaliste Velvet Liner ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nice pigmentation in one stroke, which was buildable to totally opaque coverage with another pass. The texture was lightly creamy without moving around on the skin, but it didn’t tug or feel uncomfortably sharp on the lash line either. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before migrating to the outer corners noticeably. bareMinerals 1PM (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Estee Lauder Dramatic Teal (LE, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Practice Makes Perfect (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Exotic Teal (LE, $35.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Mainline (P, $20.00) is less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). MAC Midnight Blues (DC, $16.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Electric Teal (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
