Anastasia Sepia, Vintage, Dusty Lilac Lip Glosses

Anastasia Sepia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark reddish-brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that spread well across the lips and didn’t appear streaky. The color wore well for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. Anastasia Tara (P) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Kiss Don't Tell (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Fab Tested (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Fudge (P) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Pastel Pink, Peony, Rio Lip Glosses

Anastasia Pastel Pink Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a milky, light pink with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on surprisingly evenly, though some of the color slipped into lip lines; it really applied better than a lot of similarly-hued glosses in my experience, though there is still room for improvement. This shade wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn. MAC Saint Germain (P, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Pink Fade (LE, $15.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Tender (P, $22.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Pure Fiction (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NYX Merengue (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC With Gusto, Sway to the Sound, Saucy Miss, Acting on Impulse Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC With Gusto Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a deep, muted burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and and a lightly pearlized finish. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and spread easily across the lips, but the semi-opaque coverage made it more apparent just how much color settled into lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing. Anastasia Potion (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Venom (P) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Dark as Night (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

MAC Anything But Demure, Fab Tested, Absolute Score, Smart Aleck Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Anything But Demure Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium mauve-pink with warm undertones and a smattering of fine, gold pearl. It had good pigmentation that went on evenly, though I noticed some of the gloss welled up in lip lines. It wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, though. The gloss was comfortable to wear and wore well for four and a half hours. The formula was hydrating for me. Tarte Double Tap (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Snap (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Earth & Fire (35) (P, $12.00) is lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Deelight (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer, lower quality (85% similar). NARS Chelsea Girls (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Summer 2016 Mini Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Summer 2016 Lip Gloss Set ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, travel-sized glosses in hues from rosy brown to berry. All six shades are new and limited edition. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth” and “weightless” with the “intensity of a stain” and “the mirror-like shine of a gloss.” If you love really pigmented gloss, Anastasia’s is well-worth trying, as many apply well, have full coverage, last a good awhile, are comfortable, and are mostly non-sticky. There are a few misses in the range, but for the most part, I’ve been impressed. I really hope they’ll release a few of these individually into the permanent range! The set contains $42.00 worth of gloss (full-size is 0.16 fl. oz. for $16.00), for reference.

Chanel Tanami, Sirocco, Rouge Desert, Adenium Aqua Glossimers

Chanel Tanami (602) Aqua Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a jelly-like finish–no shimmer, glossy sheen. The summer glosses are a “lighter, water-like” version of the traditional Glossimer formula. The texture was lighter, smoother, and definitely a little more slippery. It had semi-sheer color coverage–a noticeable tint to the lips but didn’t hide the natural lip color–that was comfortable to wear, moerately hydrating, and lasted for three hours on me. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
