NYX Sorbet Intense Butter Gloss
NYX Sorbet Intense Butter Gloss

NYX Sorbet Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had fairly opaque coverage, but the gloss was a little thinner and pulled into lip lines. It applied evenly, though, which was a plus. On me, this shade stayed on well for four hours. Bite Beauty Six (Watercolor) (LE, ) is brighter. Chanel Sensible (15) (P, $34.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Bijou (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Dior Tiny Pink (269) (P, $35.00) is darker, cooler. NARS Belize (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Go for Girlie (LE, $20.00) is cooler. Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is darker. NYX Apple Strudel (P, $5.00) is lighter. NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NYX Napoleon Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a medium, lightly brightened pink with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly. There was some emphasis of lip lines, but it was slight and I didn’t notice it in person (only in the close-up photos). This shade wore for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell (LE, $15.00) is more muted, cooler. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer. Maybelline Celestial Coral (010) (P, $8.99) is darker. Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is lighter. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer. Dior Tiny Pink (269) (P, $35.00) is lighter. YSL Grenade Pepite (No. 15) (P, $32.00) is darker. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is darker, warmer. Bite Beauty Ten (Watercolor) (LE, ) is lighter, more muted, cooler. Dior Tropiques (379) (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NYX Orangesicle Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly. It was easy to apply, and the color wore well for five hours on me. The formula was comfortable but neither drying nor hydrating. Guerlain Tangerine Vlam (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Morange (LE, $15.00) is darker. Illamasqua Temper (P, $22.00) is darker. MAC Ablaze (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Laundry List (LE, $15.00) is darker, more muted. Urban Decay Punch Drunk (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: NYX Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a very pigmented gloss that “keeps lips soft and glossy without being sticky.” They are typically very pigmented, but some shades apply better than others; when they apply well, they’re really a great option for anyone who likes their gloss more pigmented. They have a medium-weight consistency that is heavier than the original Butter Gloss formula with light tackiness that develops over time. It’s not hydrating but not usually drying either. The gloss wears four hours on me on average, and the formula has a slight vanilla scent to me, but it seems a little synthetic (something off about it) but had no discernible taste to me.

NYX Black Cherry Tart Intense Butter Gloss
NYX Black Cherry Tart Intense Butter Gloss

NYX Black Cherry Tart Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a blackened purple with warm, berry undertones and a cream finish. Unsurprisingly, the shade applied poorly as it was prone to streaking and pulling into those pesky lip lines. It was only semi-opaque, so the lack of coverage made all those application flaws particularly noticeable. Over a lip liner or lipstick, it could certainly work, but on its own, it is a bit messy. It lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Flight of Fancy (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Wet Violet (P, $45.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Modern Lure (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter. Dior Intrigue (995) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter. Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $19.00) is less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NYX Chocolate Crepe Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a plummy brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly without drawing much attention to lip lines. The gloss wore well for four hours and wore away evenly while it didn’t dry or hydrate my lips. Maybelline Intoxicating Spice (070) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, less pigmented, warmer. MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is cooler. Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $28.00) is lighter, more muted, less pigmented. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars (316) (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NYX Funnel Delight Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a brightened, neon light-medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly. The gloss seemed a little thinner compared to the other two, but it didn’t highlight lip lines much–I noticed it a little in the close-up photos but not in person. This shade stayed on well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Silly (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more muted. MAC Style Packed (LE, $15.00) is more muted. NYX Addis Ababa (P, $5.99) is less glossy. MAC Full Speed Ahead (P, $19.50) is darker, more muted. Estee Lauder Rosy Future (LE, $26.00) is darker, more muted. NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is less pigmented. Bite Beauty Eleven (Watercolor) (LE, ) is darker, more muted, warmer. Urban Decay Scandal (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted.

Dior Summer Dior Addict Fluid Stick
Dior Summer 2015 Dior Addict Fluid Sticks

Dior Tropiques (379) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that pulled slightly into lip lines; the high-shine finish made it harder to notice from a normal viewing distance. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was hydrating while worn. Sephora Collection Pretty in Pink (23) (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler. Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) (LE, $8.99) is darker, brighter. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is darker, brighter, warmer. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer. Dior Wonderland (575) (P, $35.00) is darker, brighter. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is less pigmented. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is warmer. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Ciel Rose (449) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy pink with warm undertones and a creamy, high-shine finish. It had fairly opaque coverage, but this one did pull into lip lines a little more noticeably than Tropiques. The color stayed on well for five hours and was moisturizing over time. Marc Jacobs Beauty Fame (206) (P, $28.00) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Fame (206) (P, $28.00) is darker. NARS Corsica (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Plaisir (779) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium fuchsia with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had nearly full color coverage that went on evenly and tended to smooth out lip lines, rather than pull into them like the other two shades. The gloss lasted for almost six hours and was comfortable to wear as it was hydrating over time. MAC Hopelessly Devoted (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is darker. Burberry Oxblood No. 23 (P, $29.00) is lighter, more muted, less pigmented. Dior Mona Lisette (872) (LE, $35.00) is warmer. MAC Pleasant (LE, $20.00) is less glossy. Dior Darling (775) (P, $35.00) is lighter, more muted. Urban Decay Big Bang (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, cooler.See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to be a formula that has the effect of “shiny gloss and pigmented lipstick into one color-rich product.” It is touted as long-wearing, lightweight, and has coverage “that is between a gloss and lipstick.” They have a very creamy, slightly gel-like consistency that’s light-medium in thickness, an ultra-glossy finish, and good color coverage. The texture is non-sticky initially, but it develops moderate tackiness within a few minutes of wear. The major issue I had with this formula was that it was very prone to getting on my teeth, and there’s a fine line between even coverage and over-application. It’s comfortable to wear and fairly hydrating over time. It had a perfume-y scent that is stronger during application than it is worn, and occasionally, I tasted soap.

Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gel
Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gels

Sephora Glossy Pink (16) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and fine gold pearl. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied evenly for the most part, but the milky quality of the gloss caused it to pull into lip lines. The color lasted for five and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Bite Beauty Eleven (Watercolor) (LE, ) is darker, more muted. Urban Decay Scandal (P, $22.00) is darker. Estee Lauder Rosy Future (LE, $26.00) is darker. Urban Decay Savage (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, more muted. MAC Unlimited Style (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Hourglass Ballet (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker. NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Pin-up Pink (17) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a muted, light-medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that looked like a glossy stain, so it didn’t look as even as other shades, but it didn’t sit in lip lines too noticeably. It only wore for three hours but was still moisturizing. MAC Call Me Gorgeous (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, cooler. Dior Hollywood (688) (P, $35.00) is brighter. Maybelline Opalescent Orchid (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter. Revlon Fuchsia Finery (P, $7.99) is warmer. Revlon Berry Allure (P, $7.99) is less glossy. Revlon Pink Pop (P, $7.99) is warmer. Revlon Berry Allure (P, $7.99) is less glossy. MAC Loud & Lovely (P, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Raspberry Punch (21) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium fuchsia with a jelly-like finish. It had nearly translucent coverage, and the texture of the gloss is incredibly thick and gel-like; it’s as if it’s missing an ingredient, because it’s more like petroleum jelly than your typical gloss. It still darkened the natural lip color with a stained-like coverage and a high-gloss finish, but it wore away after two hours. It wasn’t hydrating. MAC Call Me Gorgeous (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler. Tarte Indulging (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. MAC Loud & Lovely (P, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Ceremonial (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Vibrant Vibe (P, $22.00) is lighter. Revlon Pink Pop (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter. Revlon Fuchsia Finery (P, $7.99) is cooler. NARS Mezmer (LE, $26.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Fuchsia Fiesta (22) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a raspberry red with cool, blue undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on evenly but emphasized lip lines as the color tended to pull into them. This shade wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Hopelessly Devoted (LE, $20.00) is brighter, cooler. MAC Glam (LE, $15.00) is brighter. Dior Mona Lisette (872) (LE, $35.00) is brighter. MAC Pleasant (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter. Burberry Oxblood No. 23 (P, $29.00) is darker. Dior Soho (888) (P, $35.00) is lighter, cooler. Maybelline Radiant Ruby (530) (P, $8.99) is more muted. Dior Rose Harpers (766) (P, $35.00) is less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Cougar Red (27) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a slightly muted, medium red with warmer undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly with very minor settling into the lip lines. The gloss lasted for five and a half hours, left a very slight stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn. Revlon Fatal Apple (P, $7.99) is warmer. Chanel Exces (P, $32.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Assassin (P, $22.00) is darker. NARS Shade IV (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery. NARS Rose Gitane (P, $26.00) is warmer. NARS Scandal (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Wake Up! (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer. Bite Beauty Seven (Watercolor) (LE, ) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to be “inspired by gel nail polishes” with an “ultra-light” texture and hydrating formula. They’re semi-opaque to mostly opaque with a slight translucency that gives them a squishy, jelly-like look. They’re lightweight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky. I haven’t noticed a taste, but there is a sweet vanilla, almost caramel-like scent (it is a little on the synthetic side, but I don’t notice the scent when I’m wearing it). Despite having a smoother, mostly non-sticky feel, the formula has decent wear time (three to five hours) and is hydrating. All in all, it’s a nice formula that outdoes a lot of the more recently released new gloss formulas on the market–and at a fraction of the cost–when the shade is more pigmented, but when it is sheerer (especially the lighter shades), there is often settling into lip lines. One thing to note, though, is despite seeming like quite a big tube of gloss, it contains only 0.11 fl. oz. It has an interesting hourglass-shaped applicator, where it is curved inversely and can fit the curve of the lip.

Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gel
Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gels

Sephora Perfect Nude (04) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peach with a hint of pink and subdued by beige paired with fine beige shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but emphasized all the lines on the natural lip, so it may be better as a layering product if that is a deal-breaker. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating and wore for three hours on me. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is darker. MAC Calypso Beat (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $29.50) is more shimmery. MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Whim (P, $20.00) is lighter.

Sephora Coral Confession (24) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer (primarily gold and pink). It had mostly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothed out the appearance of the lips. It wore well for almost five hours and was hydrating over time.
Burberry Cameo Pink (P, $29.00) is darker, more muted. NARS New Lover (P, $24.00) is darker, less glossy. Make Up For Ever 205P Pearly Rose (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker.

Surratt Lip Lustres
Surratt Lip Lustres

Surratt Au Naturelle Lip Lustre ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “universal neutral with a kiss of gold.” It’s a peachy-orange brown with faint gold shimmer over a mostly creamy finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (not quite the sheer as described), but the milky quality of the gloss really came through with noticeable settling into lip lines. The texture is thick and tacky, and the cream finish gives it a slightly goopier feel and look. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Kinky (P, $22.00) is darker. Maybelline Citrus Evolution (115) (LE, $8.99) is warmer. Chanel Sensuel (11) (P, $34.00) is similar. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Live It Up (LE, $15.00) is brighter. Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is pinker. MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is similar. MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. Chanel Genie (P, $32.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Surratt Ensoleille Lip Lustre ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “reflective rose bronze.” It’s a muted, medium-dark orange-brown with pink and gold shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff that covered evenly and looked smooth and glossy on the lips. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating. Revlon HD Amber (555) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery. MAC Ray of Sunshine (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. Maybelline Glistening Amber (055) (P, $8.99) is similar. MAC Imperial Light (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, redder. Burberry Cameo (P, $29.00) is slightly more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Surratt Flamant Lip Lustre ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “flamingo coral.” It’s a brightened, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a cream finish. There is the barest hint of pink shimmer in it, but you can hardly see it applied. The gloss was semi-opaque when applied, but it went on smoothly and evenly. The thicker consistency seemed to help it fill lip lines and give lips a plumper look. It wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating over time. Urban Decay Punch Drunk (P, $22.00) is darker. MAC Barbecue (LE, $15.00) is darker. Gucci Beauty Crushed Coral (P, $32.00) is darker, more muted. Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is brighter, pinker. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is lighter. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is brighter, more orange. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Cheerful (P, $22.00) is more muted. Milani Coral Crush (10) (P, $5.49) is lighter. MAC Ablaze (LE, $15.00) is darker. Burberry Brick Red (P, $29.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
