Sephora Glossy Pink, Pin-up Pink, Raspberry Punch, Fuchsia Fiesta, Cougar Red Ultra Shine Lip Gels

Sephora Glossy Pink (16) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and fine gold pearl. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied evenly for the most part, but the milky quality of the gloss caused it to pull into lip lines. The color lasted for five and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Bite Beauty Eleven (Watercolor) (LE, ) is darker, more muted. Urban Decay Scandal (P, $22.00) is darker. Estee Lauder Rosy Future (LE, $26.00) is darker. Urban Decay Savage (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, more muted. MAC Unlimited Style (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Hourglass Ballet (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker. NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Perfect Nude, Paradise Pink, Coral Confession Ultra Shine Lip Gels

Sephora Perfect Nude (04) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peach with a hint of pink and subdued by beige paired with fine beige shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but emphasized all the lines on the natural lip, so it may be better as a layering product if that is a deal-breaker. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating and wore for three hours on me. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is darker. MAC Calypso Beat (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $29.50) is more shimmery. MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Whim (P, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer. NARS Striptease (P, $26.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE, ) is lighter, cooler. MAC Poetic (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is cooler. Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Revlon HD Smoky Topaz (570) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery. MAC Modest (P, $22.00) is cooler. MAC Lovingly Yours (P, $22.00) is cooler.
