Anastasia Amber Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly without streaking but a bit of color gathered in some of my deeper lip lines. The consistency felt smooth and spreadable with a light tackiness that helped it adhere well to the lips but still felt comfortable. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn.

P.S. — Sephora was showing 19 shades discounted to $8 last night (when I wrote the review).

MAC Lee Hi Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep red with warm undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was incredibly smooth, dense but not heavy or too firm in the tube, and it applied evenly across the lips and never tugged. It was richly pigmented and yielded even coverage in a single layer. The color wore well for over six hours, left a slight stain behind, and was non-drying.

The lipstick will be released online on June 29th!

St. Tropez

Jouer St. Tropez Lip Topper ($16.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a sheer base with fine pink and silver pearl and larger pink flecks of glitter. The consistency was thin with a fair amount of slip–it felt a little oily (and it is advertised as being “with coconut oil”)–but the glitter and shimmer spread evenly across the lips, which I always find to be key in a sheerer, shimmery gloss. I could feel some of the sparkly bits on the lips. The Lip Topper formula can be used alone or over a lip product, and it is designed to be a sheerer product. It was sheerer than Tan Lines but like a warmer, pinker version of Frost Bite. This shade wore well for three hours on its own and was hydrating.

P.S. — DermStore has the new Jouer summer collection and currently has a 20% off code (MDSALE20, which works sitewide) for Memorial Day weekend 🙂

ColourPop Curvii Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.085 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peach with a hint of pink and barely there pink sparkle. It was supposed to have medium coverage, and it had more semi-opaque coverage when I tried it. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and mostly non-tacky, so it spread well across the lips with fairly even coverage. There was minimal streaking (mostly around the edges of my lips) with some color that had settled into my lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Spotlight Me

MAC Spotlight Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick was creamy with some slip but did not feel overly slippery on the lips, so it did not slide around or feel like a high maintenance product. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, though it was shy of being truly opaque on me. There was a smidgen of color that sat in my deeper lip lines but was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Moon Jelly

Anastasia Moon Jelly Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) has a translucent base–possibly gold-tinted–with iridescent blue and lavender sparkle. It looked like a sheer gloss with “semi-sheer” sparkle. It had somewhat even dispersion of the sparkle, but it could have been more evenly spread across the lips. The texture was smooth, slightly thinner than their more opaque glosses, but still on the tacky side. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating. The pigmentation was the reason for the rating on this shade, as the formula is described as opaque and there was nothing that indicated this was different (at least not on the brand’s website).

The formula is described as “an opaque, high-shine lip color” that has “intense pigment” and a “precision” applicator. The pigmentation of Anastasia’s Lip Gloss formula has been what distinguishes it from a lot of ther gloss ranges, because many shades have been opaque, but two of the new shades released for summer are decidedly sheerer. It would not surprise me if this was intentional–they both have “reflect” in the description (more shimmery than most shades within the core line-up) but none were described as sheer.
