NARS Mind Game Mini Velvet Lip Glide Coffret

NARS Mind Game Mini Velvet Lip Glide Coffret
NARS Mind Game Mini Velvet Lip Glide Coffret

NARS Mind Game Mini Velvet Lip Glide Coffret ($45.00 for 0.72 oz.) is a new, limited edition set that features six miniature sized Velvet Lip Glides with three exclusive shades and three from the permanent range. The set will be exclusive to Sephora and available November 1st (but it might go up earlier based on my experience). Since the Velvet Lip Glide formula just released, I only tested the wear of the new shades (and I did not re-swatch the existing shades, but I did check them against the permanent line and did not notice any differences in color or texture), so the ratings for the three shades from the permanent range are based on my previous testing of them. Overall, the set is nice; I think it’s well-worth checking out if this is the type of formula that tickles your fancy. The only downside is that they’re all darker shades, which seems to suit the feel of the collection but may not be enough variety for a set.

Bound is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque, with a smooth, lightweight texture that was comfortable to wear and non-tacky. The only issue I had with this one was how the color gathered in lip lines noticeably. This shade wore well for four hours and was hydrating over time. MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Bourgeoisie (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Vintage (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Love Child (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). MAC Lots of Laughs (P, $10.00) is lighter (80% similar). Anastasia Raisin (-, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Sweet Tooth (LE, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

No. 675 is a muted, medium-dark red with warm, brown undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied very smoothly and evenly, and the color seemed to stay out of my lip lines, too. The consistency had a smooth, almost gel-cream feel and was comfortable to wear. On me, it wore for just over five hours and was hydrating. Smashbox Brick Trick (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Bordeaux (-, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Anastasia Vamp (-, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Fudge (-, $16.00) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Desire (P, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chez Claude is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and very light, fine pearl. It had good color payoff, where just a hint of my lip freckle still came through, which went on evenly and smoothly. I loved how smooth and cream-like it felt on the lips, but it had enough plushness that it didn’t pull into lip lines or appear streaky. It wore well for five hours on me and was moisturizing over time. NARS Plato's (LE, $26.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Peer Pressure (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Preserving Passion (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale (P, $52.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Chanel Distinction (21) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Smashbox Crush It (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Spare Me (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Exposed (P, $52.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Unspeakable is a muted, medium-dark red-plum with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency had the plushness of a gloss with the creaminess of a satin lipstick, so it didn’t feel heavy or tacky, but it still had noticeable shine. This shade wore well for five hours on me, and it was moisturizing as well. NARS Plato's (LE, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Berry (-, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Modern Drama (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Provoke (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Plato’s is a muted, dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the gloss itself spread easily across the lips and left an even layer of color. This shade seemed a little more prone to gathering in my lip lines compared to some of the others, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance (it’s even quite subtle in the closeup photo). On me, it lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Perpetual Holiday (P, $24.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Unspeakable (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Berry (-, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar). Colour Pop Sookie (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte WCW (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Furry (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale (P, $52.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Chez Claude (LE, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Spare Me (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Purple Mocha (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Toy is a deep, purpled burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a smattering of fine pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was even for the most part with minor color pulling into lip lines (this was a case where the color was so dark that it was hard to tell from afar). The consistency was lightweight, smooth, a little gel-like and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted for. The formula felt hydrating to me while worn. MAC Purple Mocha (P, $17.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Dark as Night (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Potion (-, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC With Gusto (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

NARS Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a hybrid between lipstick and lipgloss that is hydrating, richly pigmented, and comfortable to wear. They have stronger color payoff, a non-tacky consistency, and a smoothness to their consistency that is a lot like a good lipstick, while they have a plusher, thicker texture that gives lips a plumper, fuller look along with a glossy sheen that is more like a gloss. Some of the lighter shades settled into lip lines, but it varied from shade to shade. The wear varied between three and five hours for me, which is more like a gloss than a lipstick. They develop a more “velvety” finish, which is code for “less shine” after two to three hours, and at that point, they tend to look more like a natural finish lipstick than a gloss. I would classify the formula more as a pigmented gloss than a glossy lipstick, if I had to put it firmly in one box. The formula has a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste to me.

Anastasia Petal, Neon Apple, Punchy Red, Runway Red Lipglosses

Anastasia Neon Apple Lip Gloss
Anastasia Neon Apple Lip Gloss

Anastasia Petal Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with mostly even coverage–there was a smidgen of visible streakiness along the outer edge of my lips that I couldn’t smooth out, but it wasn’t as noticeable due to the general brightness and richness of the color at a normal viewing distance. The color wore well for five hours on me and was moisturizing. Christian Louboutin Beaute Colibretta (P, $85.00) is more muted (90% similar). Dior Plaisir (779) (LE, $35.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Glam (LE, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar).

MAC Impassioned (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Neon Apple Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was great with nearly opaque color coverage, while the consistency was creamy and easy to spread across the lips. The only issue I had with this shade was that the consistency was thicker and “lines” were visible if I pressed my lips together. It wore well for just over five hours, though, and it was hydrating while worn. Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa (P, $85.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Forever Darling (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar).

Anastasia Punchy Red Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a jelly-like finish. The consistency was more gel-like with this shade, and while it was semi-opaque in coverage, it had the translucency of a lip stain, where it was very even but still the natural lip color came through. This shade wore well for almost six hours and was hydrating over time. MAC Smart Aleck (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Anastasia Neon Apple (-, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Runway Red Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm undertones and fine gold and red sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went very evenly and smoothly. The consistency was light-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky, but this particular shade was very smoothing and made my lips appear plumper. It wore well for almost five hours and was moisturizing. MAC Ready to Roam (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #402 Red to Go (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Mineshaft (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Special Force (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Forever Darling (P, $24.00)(90% similar).

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

Formula Overview

Anastasia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors. The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).

Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss
Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss

Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a brighter, light-medium peach-orange with warm undertones and a cream finish. There was a milkier quality to the color, and despite it being rather pigmented, it did not apply well. This shade settled into lip lines and was visibly streaky. On me, it wore for four hours and was hydrating. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Neon Orange (-, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Maui Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, but it was harder to apply this shade evenly, as it was more prone to streaking than some of the other shades in the formula. The consistency felt creamy and comfortable on the lips, though. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is brighter (95% similar). Chanel Super Coral (157) (LE, $34.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Mistress (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Tattoo My Heart (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). NARS Playpen (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Neon Orange Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with a hint of pinky-red tones paired with a cream finish. This shade was fully opaque, but it could have applied a little more evenly–it was slightly streaky and did not adhere as evenly around the inner center of my lips. The consistency was creamy, light-medium in weight, and comfortable to wear over the four hours it lasted. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Anastasia Melon (-, $16.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). NYX Orangesicle (P, $5.99) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Candy Coral Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, a little more gel-like, and it spread easily across the lips, but I did encounter a bit of streaking. It had good pigmentation, though, and it wore well for four hours on me. NYX Napoleon (P, $5.99) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Snitch (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Playpen (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge
Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge

Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy, almost jelly-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly, but this was one of the less pigmented shades in the range and did not have the same evenness in the application I had come to expect from the formula.

Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (17) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a shiny finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which looked like a true stain, as it was translucent but still very visible in color.

Cle de Peau Deco (16) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm, reddish undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. The texture was thinner and did not seem as glossy or as gel-like as other shades in the range, so it wasn’t as flattering or as smoothing on the lips. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, at least, and it still wore better than most glosses at five hours. Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (95% similar).

Formula Overview

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing “glossy stain” that give lips a “shiny, vinyl look” with “rich color.” The consistency is smooth, lightweight, and like a watery cream when initially applied, but it develops into a lighter weight gel texture after a few minutes. Most of the shades have medium or greater coverage, long-wearing, high-shine, and are hydrating while worn. There is a subtle floral scent to the formula, but I did not notice it except in the tube and did not encounter any taste. They look more like a stain than they actually behave like one, as I only found the darkest shades to leave behind any trace of color after it had worn away. There is a slight tackiness after an hour or so, but it never turned truly sticky.

Cle de Peau Lingerie (11) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a cream-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied smoothly, but some of the color settled into lip lines noticeably, particularly on my bottom lip. I was surprised at how it did not leave “lines” when I pressed my lips together as it is such a light shade. The texture was smooth, comfortable to wear, and felt hydrating over the five hours it lasted. MAC Artful (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Cle de Peau Chenille (12) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a cream-like finish and lots of shine. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture was lightweight, gel-like as it “set,” and was very comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for six hours and was hydrating. MAC Hyper-Fabulous (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Intrigue (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Cle de Peau Flushed (13) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a subdued, medium-dark rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a fine, silver pearl. It was very pigmented, though just shy of being full coverage, and the color went on smoothly and evenly without streaking or looking patchy. The formula had a gel-like consistency that was comfortable to wear, as it wasn’t clingy or too tacky. I was able to wear this color for just over five and a half hours, and it was moisturizing while worn. MAC Astral (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Frenemy (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia St. Tropez (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Cle de Peau Sequin (14) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bright, peony pink with warm, yellow undertones and a fine silver pearl. It had richer color payoff than the others, but the texture was thicker overall as well, which made it a little harder to apply and keep from welling up in my lip lines. The color wore well for just over four and a half hours, and it was nicely hydrating. Chanel Innocent (14) (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Formula Overview

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing “glossy stain” that give lips a “shiny, vinyl look” with “rich color.” The consistency is smooth, lightweight, and like a watery cream when initially applied, but it develops into a lighter weight gel texture after a few minutes. Most of the shades have medium or greater coverage, long-wearing, high-shine, and are hydrating while worn. There is a subtle floral scent to the formula, but I did not notice it except in the tube and did not encounter any taste. They look more like a stain than they actually behave like one, as I only found the darkest shades to leave behind any trace of color after it had worn away. There is a slight tackiness after an hour or so, but it never turned truly sticky.

Anastasia Fall 2016 Lipgloss Set

Anastasia Fall 2016 Lipgloss Set

Anastasia Fall 2016 Mini Lip Gloss Set ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized glosses in six, new and exclusive shades. I’m a big fan of Anastasia’s gloss formula for something more pigmented, longer wearing, and hydrating over time. On the whole, the set is nice–the colors are very autumnal, and for the most part, they applied well, had good color coverage, and were moisturizing and comfortable to wear.

Amber is a muted, medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, smooth consistency that applied evenly but had some color gather into lip lines. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Eight (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Live It Up (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Fresh Mango (26) (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Berry is a rich, dark reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic–fully opaque–and distributed evenly across the lips. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and mostly non-tacky throughout the wear. The gloss wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating over time.
NARS Plato's (LE, $26.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Perpetual Holiday (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte WCW (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Unspeakable (P, $26.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Modern Drama (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale (P, $52.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Deviant (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Sookie (LE) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Carla is a bold, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, fairly lightweight, and spread evenly across the lips. It had nearly opaque color coverage, which covered the lips well and did not appear streaky or feather over time. On my lips, the color lasted for five hours and was moisturizing. Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (18) (P, $48.00) is darker (95% similar). Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) (P, $48.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Revlon HD Carnelian (545) (P, $8.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Maple is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and gold and copper shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that felt comfortable on the lips, but it did not apply as evenly as it could have. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Anastasia Rum (-, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Raisin is a muted, medium-dark pinky mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones paired with a cream finish. The consistency seemed a bit thicker, and it didn’t seem to look as smooth on the lips, as it emphasized my lip lines (without really settling into them), particularly on my lower lip. It was richly pigmented, though, and the color spread evenly across the lips. This shade wore nicely for just over five hours on me, and it felt moisturizing to me. NARS Bound (P, $26.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rum is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented with full-color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. The texture was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted. MAC Chestnut (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Area (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Feelin' So Good (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Maple (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Christian Louboutin Beaute Casanovella (P, $85.00) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Fudge (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Anastasia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors. The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).
