Shiseido Murrey, First Bite, Toffee Apple, Burning Up Rouge Rouge Lipsticks

Shiseido Murrey (RD305) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. This shade had very, very subtle streakiness due the more emollient consistency. I didn’t notice it from a normal viewing distance, but it is visible in the close-up. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and easy to apply as it didn’t tug or drag on the lips. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly. I was able to get four and a half hours of wear out of the lipstick, and it was moisturizing. Chanel Roussy (426) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Shiseido Coral Shore (RD309) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Sunny Seoul (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Fiend (DC, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bright Peony (P, $35.00) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever C106, C107, C108 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C106 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, natural finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging nor clinging to the lips without sliding around. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and lasted for four and a half hours. It felt hydrating while worn. Tarte Flashy (LE, $24.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Kidman's Kiss (P, $32.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (95% similar). NARS Apoline (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar).

MAC Pick Me Pick Me, Model Behavior, On and On, Pink You Think? Lipsticks

MAC Pick Me, Pick Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an icy, smoky lavender with cool undertones and a sparkly finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which wasn’t part of the description. It may work better as a layering shade, though the shimmer spread across the lips evenly, which made it wearable as a standalone shade. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me but was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced Unicorn Tears (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Cultive (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Pervette (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Viseart Highlight/Sculpt (01) Highlight and Sculpt Palette

Viseart Highlight/Contour (01) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. The highlighting shades are on the left, while the contouring shades are on the right. The formula used for the highlighters is really nice–dense, buttery, and blendable–and feels similar to their shimmery eyeshadows, while the formula used for the contour powders is more like the powder blush formula. The formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” Generally, the pigmentation was buildable from medium coverage, fairly blendable, and long-wearing (eight to nine hours); I only had issues with the two deeper contour shades, as they weren’t as easily blended and diffused on the skin as the other four shades. Unfortunately, that accounts for 1/3 of the palette being problematic, and at this price point, that’s likely to be a deal-breaker.
