Arigato

ColourPop Arigato Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and gold, silver, and fuchsia sparkle. It has a Sheer finish, which is apt, as the coverage was sheer. It darkened and added pink to my natural lip color, but it may look quite different depending on what your natural lip color is. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and non-sticky on the lips, which made it comfortable to wear for the three and a half hours it lasted for.

Rainbow Interlude

MAC Rainbow Interlude Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a translucent pink with pink and silver pearl. It had sheer coverage and lightened my natural lip color a bit while adding more of a pink tint to them, but the effect that was more noticeable was the sparkle and shine. The texture was smooth, somewhat tacky, but comfortable to wear and easy to spread across the lips. It lasted for three hours on me.

Worth noting, the Lipglasses in this collection contain significantly less product than regular Lipglass–the tube may seem thicker, but it’s likely due to thicker plastic. MAC Lipglass typically contains 0.16 fl. oz. and retails for $16 (or $100.00/fl. oz.), while this one is $18.50 for 0.10 fl. oz. (or $185.00/fl. oz.). The tubes are very similar to the kind that Dazzleglasses and Cremsheen Glasses come in. None of the glosses were described as sheer (Lipglass is a “high coverage” formula, per MAC’s website), so none of them rated very well, though I think a few would work for layering or sheerer lip looks, if that’s something you like!

Furry

ColourPop Furry Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark berry-red with cool undertones and pink and violet pearl. It had nearly opaque color payoff that went on smoothly and sat fairly well on lips (I did have very subtle settling in my deepest lip lines). The texture was smooth, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear; it wasn’t too thick or too thin and felt hydrating over time. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me.

ColourPop x Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Set

ColourPop Yummy Cookies Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Yummy Cookies Super Shock Cheek

Hello Pretty

ColourPop Hello Pretty Makeup Set ($42.00) includes two cheek products, three eyeshadows, and two lip colors. It is presently sold out (I’m writing this the day before), but there’s supposed to be a restock for the Hello Kitty collection at 10AM PST today (11/16), so you might want to keep your eye out if it’s on your list!

Overall, it’s a nice set! I didn’t have any issues with longevity across the included products, and they were, largely, consistent with past experiences with the Super Shock formula (pigmented, blendable, long-wearing) and Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick (long-wearing, pigmented but drying).

Innocent (14)

Chanel Innocent (14) Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and very fine, light pink pearl. It had good color coverage, though not fully opaque, that went on without streaking, but some of the color settled into my lower lip lines noticeably.

The Rouge Allure Gloss formula is supposed to have “the colour intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” paired with “long-wearing coverage” that “instantly hydrates.” It’s a formula most suited for someone who likes more pigmented gloss, doesn’t mind some tackiness, and needs hydration. The texture had a light-medium weight to it with a light to moderate tackiness, which developed over time. It was comfortable to wear, as it was quite smooth and felt hydrating over the five hours it lasted.

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector's Makeup Case
Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case ($59.00 for 1.59 oz.) includes 24 eyeshadows, four cheek colors, miniature size Glossy Lip Paint, black liquid eyeliner, and miniature sized mascara. It’s another middling mega set from Tarte-it’s disappointing with some real misses in the palette. There were only a few shades that were actually good. The set itself is contained within a zippered case, but it is pretty bulky for traveling (and storing). The best part about the set were the punny art-inspired names.

Moment is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a fine, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a slightly firm texture in the pan. It applied decently and lasted for eight hours (but not the 12 promised). Hourglass Dim Infusion (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Chanel Caresse (180) (LE, $45.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Cream Soda (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Milani Luminoso (P, $8.49) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Indecent (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Inner Beauty (LE) is lighter (80% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals The Big Break (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). NYX Soft Spoken (P, $6.50) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Authentic is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic finish. It had good color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that lasted for eight and a half hours on me. It did emphasize pores slightly. NARS Frenzy (Left) (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia White Sand (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Butterscotch (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Midnight Sun (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Make a Sheen (LE) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Noctum (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Bare End (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Prosecco Pop (LE, $38.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is darker (90% similar). Burberry The Runway Palette (LE, $68.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Looxi Beauty Centerfold (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). The Estee Edit 14K Glow (LE) is darker (85% similar). Anastasia Bubbly (LE) is darker (85% similar). Looxi Beauty Luxe (P, $7.50) is darker, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Unique is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The color coverage was fully opaque, but the texture was still soft, silky, and easily blended on the skin, so it could be sheered out or diffused as desired. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. NARS Madly (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain #03 (P, $53.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Sweet Pea (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals The Skinny Dip (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Scone (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Earth (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Bronzer) (LE) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). bareMinerals Warmth (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Becca Wild Honey (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). Chanel Cheeky (79) (DC, $38.00) is cooler, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Provocative is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty, but blendable, consistency. It wore well for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Bronzed (P, $28.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Terra (P, $68.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Tantric (P) is lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Java Sun (LE, $65.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Faux Tan Matte (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Bronzer) (LE) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glitter Glue is a light beige with warm undertones and a glittery finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was not buildabl,e and the texture was looser in the pan, so there was a lot of fall out during application as well as during wear. This one, as the name might allude to, needs a glitter adhesive to function. MAC Diamond Butterfly (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Vanilla Diamond (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D716 Crystalline Papaya (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced All American Girl (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Just Gleaming (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Givenchy Tentation #4 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Golden Lace #3 (LE) is darker (95% similar). Stila Snowflake (LE, $18.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Pure Bred #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Shroom (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I514 Pink Ivory (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Dazzlelight (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Call of the Canyon (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). LORAC Prosecco (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). NARS Abyssinia (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Preferred Blonde (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Virgin (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nudes is a light-medium beige with a mostly matte finish. The texture was incredibly stiff and had such a hard press in the pan that it was difficult to get any color out of it. It was a challenge to apply as so little color showed up, and what did apply, immediately melded to the skin and did not want to blend. It lasted for four and a half hours before it had faded. NARS Madrague #1 (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Buff (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Bone (LE, $23.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). MAC Tabby (LE, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Look Closer I (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bronze Casting is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and flecks of copper sparkle. It had sheer coverage, which I did not find buildable at all, and the sparkle was loose and sat on top of the underlying color, so there was noticeable fall out after six hours of wear. Makeup Atelier Honey Brown #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Bellini (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Midnight Haze (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). L'Oreal Sunset Seine (P, $5.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #5 (LE)(95% similar). Anastasia Glisten (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Hieroglyph (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Gingersnap (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Bon Bon (Semi-Sweet Palette) (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). theBalm #21 (P, $6.50) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Illamasqua Bronx (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Warm Wash #2 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Sassy Bun (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Cosmic (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Amaze (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Too Faced Honey Honey (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Silhouette is a dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be a slight sheen to the finish, which kept it from being totally matte. The consistency was a little thinner and firmer, which made it harder to blend out without getting some patchiness. With enough effort, I was able to blend it out, though. It had good pigmentation and lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Laura Mercier Tuxedo (P, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Nehru (Guo Pei) (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). L'Oreal Noir C'est Noir (P, $5.99) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Point 'n' Shoot (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Fin (LE, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). theBalm Sleek (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Jet Black (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

MAC Overnight (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Waterlilies is a light beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that had a tendency to sheer out when applied to the skin. It lasted for six hours on me. Too Faced Ginger Cream (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Coconut (LE, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). Tarte Super Mom (LE) is brighter (95% similar).

Van Gogh With It is a medium brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was opaque, while the texture felt soft and smooth to the touch, and it blended out well on the eye.

Ciate On Fire (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Girl's Night (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Metal Work is a medium-dark coppery brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation, though the consistency was thinner and firmer in the pan, so it was difficult to diffuse and blend out on the lid. It started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. LORAC Pink Bronze (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Tarte On the Monet (LE) is darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Body Conscious (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

First Impressionism is a dark gray with cooler undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a drier, chunkier texture that was hard to diffuse evenly, as it would look patchy when blended. This would perform better over primer or a glitter adhesive. It lasted for seven hours with minor fall out. LORAC Slate (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Santeria (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Starry Night is a blackened navy blue with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium color coverage, and it was hard to build up as the color was rather dusty and prone to sheering out. It wore well for six hours.

Porcelain Dali is a very light pink with neutral-to-warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It was very sheer, due to the incredibly dusty and thin texture.

Stained Glass is a deep, reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was rather thin and dusty, so the color had a tendency to sheer out easily, but it was also one that turned patchy as I blended it.

I Louvre It is a light-medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish.

Obvi is a medium, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a fine, white pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but some color sat in lip lines, which became more noticeable as time went on. The gloss lasted for three hours, was lightly moisturizing, and comfortable to wear. (I reviewed this previously here and did not retest.)
