Chanel Beige Star & Chene Rouge Glossimers

Chanel Beige Star (206) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a pink-tinged beige with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, but there’s a fair amount of translucency so the natural lip color will influence this one a lot. For those with darker natural lip color, this may lighten and brighten to some degree without being particularly noticeable on. It didn’t settle as much as a lot of shades in this family have for me, but there is still some minor settling into my lower lip lines. It wore for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Sephora Collection Perfect Nude (04) (P, $14.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Rule34 (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC On the Scene (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Revlon HD Smoky Topaz (570) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Join the Party (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Pretty Natural Lip Kit

MAC Pretty Natural Lip Kit ($29.50 for 0.31 oz.) is a pinky-beige set of shades, all in full-size, so this is one of the better value kits from Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. The set of shades works well together, and for what they are, they are decent. I find MAC’s Lip Pencil formula to be harder to apply as it is quite stiff/firm, and it is quite drying. The lipstick was the best of the set.

NARS Chelsea Girls & Baby Doll Lipglosses

NARS Chelsea Girls Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink beige.” It’s a slighly muted, light-medium pinky-peach with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, but I found the color to pull into lip lines. It wasn’t too noticeable from afar, but it did gather more gloss as it wore on. The texture is light-medium in weight, is comfortable to wear with a light tackiness. It stayed on for four hours on me and was hydrating while worn. Several readers mentioned Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer, but unfortunately, I don’t have that, so I cannot compare the two! NYX Tres Leches (P, $6.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Sweet Stiletto (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Chihuahua (P, $26.00) is cooler. NARS Giza (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is lighter, warmer. Bobbi Brown Nude Pink (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted. MAC Persistent Peach (P, $19.50) is lighter, cooler. MAC Everlasting Nude (LE, $19.50) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Cherry Popping & Rollergirl Dazzleglasses

MAC Cherry Popping Dazzleglass ($20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a “fuchsia with purple pearl.” It’s a muted, pinky-red with lighter violet and pink sparkle and shimmer. It was semi-sheer on lips with noticeable color that went on evenly but still let the natural lip color come through. The texture was medium-thick with a tacky feel. On me, the gloss lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Social Season (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Love Alert (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter. L’Oreal Dazzle Me (LE, $9.99) is cooler. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, cooler.
