Shiseido Hushed Tones, Sweet Desire, Rouge Rum Punch Rouge Rouge Lipsticks

Shiseido Hushed Tones (RD713) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, and the consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and comfortable to wear. The downside to this shade was how some of the color settled into lip lines as it wore, though it lated for four hours and was hydrating.

IT Cosmetics Velvet Luxe Brushes (304, 307, 314, 320, 322) Reviews & Photos

IT Cosmetics No. 304 Velvet Luxe Plush Foundation Brush ($38.00) is designed as a “flat but wide” brush for cream and liquid foundation application. It’s a medium-sized, dense, dome-shaped foundation brush made out of synthetic fibers. The brush head measured 33.5mm in width, 32.0mm in length, and 17.4mm in thickness with a handle length of 7.2 inches / 18.3 centimeters. IT’s Velvet Luxe range uses incredibly soft synthetic hairs that are as soft as high-end goat hair used by brands like Chikuhodo, Hakuhodo, etc. I liked this best with liquid, medium coverage or greater foundations with satin to luminous finishes, and it will fit in best with someone who tends to apply their foundation in patting and smooth downward (or upward) strokes rather than in circular, buffing motions.
The curved edge fits in well when maneuvering around the nose, underneath the eye, and around the mouth. Personally, I still preferred the No. 302 for liquid foundation.

MAC Spoiled Fabulous, Wild Extract, Time to Shine Lipsticks

MAC Spoiled Fabulous Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light, champagne gold with warm undertones and fine gold and larger gold sparkle. It had a noticeably gritty texture when applied directly to the lips, and the sparkle really clings to each other, which causes unevenness and lumpy bits of sparkle on the lips. The “color” seemed to slip into lip lines as well. This is a shade that I found difficult to apply on its own and get any measure of standalone wear out of it, as it always made my lips look rough and very textured. It would work better as a layering shade. It lasted for two and a half hours on me. MAC Tanarama (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC No Interruptions (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Liquid Lurex (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Whip (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Lame (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Altoum (LE, $35.00) is more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). MAC Free as a Butterfly (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Honey Bear & I Want Candy La Cremes

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer paired with a lightly glossy finish.
