Magnetic Mauve (04)

Lancome Magnetic Mauve (04) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rose pink with warm undertones and lighter pink and gold pearl. It had medium coverage, so it fell rather short of its full coverage claim. The texture was tacky, light-medium to medium in weight (definitely noticeable on), but it didn’t slide around. The gloss stayed put for five hours and maintained its glossy shine throughout the wear. It was moisturizing over time as well.

The Le Metallique formula is supposed to have “full-coverage” with a “rich, creamy texture” that is hydrating and long-wearing. First and foremost, if you do not like tacky gloss, you’ll want to stay far away from these; the formula is very tacky and is a thicker, denser formula. They are longer wearing as a result, though, and most shades fell within four to six hours of wear for me and retain a really high-shine, high-gloss finish that almost looks wet and lasts throughout the wear time. Most shades were semi-opaque to opaque, but as the formula was thicker, I would hesitate to add more product to get more coverage. They seemed to have no discernible scent or taste to me.

Dearly Beloved

MAC Dearly Beloved Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips without tugging. The lipstick wore well for five hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and comfortable to wear.

This shade will be available on February 9th online and in select stores.

Lancome Polished Rose (01) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium rosy pink with cooler undertones and warmer gold and pink pearl. It had medium, somewhat buildable coverage with a very glossy finish. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, tacky, and did not leave “lines” if I pressed my lips together. I did have a bit of the pinker base settle into my lip lines, though. The gloss lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time.

ColourPop Hack Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and pink glitter. The brand described the coverage as sheer, and I would describe it as sheer to semi-sheer coverage. The gloss was non-sticky, lightweight, and smooth on the lips, which made it comfortable to wear, but I did notice color had settled into my lip lines, despite the gloss applying evenly otherwise. It lasted for three hours on me and was hydrating.

MAC Beautifully Bare Cremesheen Glass ($21.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a creamy, smooth consistency that wasn’t sticky at all. The gloss was comfortable to wear, and though it settled into lip lines, it applied evenly and did not appear streaky. It lasted for two and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

Cremesheen Glass is supposed to be creamy, hydrating, and sheerer. In general, Cremesheen Glass tends to have a creamier, milkier quality to it, which makes it comfortable and hydrating to wear, but it often looks streaky, settles into lip lines, and is shorter wearing.

Poppin' Peach

Too Faced Poppin’ Peach Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss ($19.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It seemed more pigmented when I swatched it on my arm than lips, as it was only medium in coverage on the lips. It applied terribly–it emphasized my lip lines as the color pooled in them and was streaky along the edges. It lasted for two and a half hours, but the color settled more and more into my lip lines over that period. The only good thing about this shade was that it was hydrating.

The formula is supposed to be “moisture-rich” with a “lightweight and creamy” feel. It does, in fact, smell like sugary peach (leans synthetic to me), though it is not overwhelming once on the lips. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to mostly opaque with a creamy, smooth consistency that was comfortable to wear and hydrating over time, but they wore away quickly and had a tendency to settle into lip lines from the beginning, so they are not the most flattering lip product worn.
