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.

Maybelline Coral Craze, Pink Pizazz, Fab & Fuchsia, Berry Chic Baby Gloss Lipglosses

These are the last four Maybelline Baby Lips Lipglosses ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.), and all four have a jelly finish. The gloss is a new formula that’s supposed to be shiny, non-sticky, and hydrating for four hours with twelve shades divided into three finishes. These all looked similar applied, so from a color standpoint, it’s unnecessary to have them all. The jelly finished shades have a slightly thicker texture to them, though they feel very similar once you apply to the lips. The formula feels lightweight, mostly non-sticky (a very slight tackiness develops after two to three hours of wear), wears for one to three hours, and is comfortable and hydrating. There is a sweet, fruity-floral scent that tastes like perfume-y soap during the entire length of wear; I could taste it just talking to someone, and it ruined anything I ate or drank. They were comfortable to wear, though, and they don’t feel heavy and keep and maintain hydration going for an hour or two after most of the gloss has worn away. The formula is sheer (as it is supposed to be) with a lot of shades looking the same once applied, but they may vary wildly from person to person due to much of it being dependent on your natural lip color.

Maybelline Taupe With Me, Pink-a-boo, Life’s a Peach, Tickled Pink Baby Gloss Lipglosses

These next four Maybelline Baby Lips Lipglosses ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) are of the cream finish. The gloss is a new formula that’s supposed to be shiny, non-sticky, and hydrating for four hours with twelve shades divided into three finishes. The cream finish doesn’t go on quite as evenly and can pull into lip lines slightly, but the gloss is fairly thin so this isn’t too noticeable. The formula feels lightweight, mostly non-sticky (a very slight tackiness develops after two to three hours of wear), wears for one to three hours, and is comfortable and hydrating. There is a sweet, fruity-floral scent that tastes like perfume-y soap during the entire length of wear; I could taste it just talking to someone, and it ruined anything I ate or drank. They were comfortable to wear, though, and they don’t feel heavy and keep and maintain hydration going for an hour or two after most of the gloss has worn away.

Maybelline Just a Glimmer, A Wink of Pink, Fuchsia Flicker, Lilac Lumi Baby Gloss Lipglosses

Maybelline Baby Lips Lipgloss ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a new formula that’s supposed to be shiny, non-sticky, and hydrating for four hours with twelve shades divided into three finishes. I’m reviewing them based on finish, so this post features the four shimmery shades. They’re lightweight, mostly non-sticky (a very slight tackiness develops after two to three hours of wear), wear for one to three hours, and are comfortable and hydrating. The formula has a sweet, fruity-floral scent that tastes like perfume-y soap during the entire length of wear; I could taste it just talking to someone, and it ruined anything I ate or drank. The shimmer in these shades is noticeable in texture, though they are fine enough not to feel particularly gritty, but the thinner consistency made them apparent on the lips. They were comfortable to wear, though, and they don’t feel heavy and keep and maintain hydration going for an hour or two after most of the gloss has worn away. The formula is sheer with a lot of shades looking the same once applied, but they may vary wildly from person to person due to much of it being dependent on your natural lip color.

Round-up: NYX Intense Butter Gloss Overview & Thoughts

NYX Intense Butter Glosses ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) are a richer, more opaque gloss with a cream finish and a glossy shine. When NYX nails the formula, it’s really good, but there are some misses. My favorites were Spice Cake (A), Chocolate Crepe (A-), Apple Crisp (A-), and Toasted Marshmallow (A-). They wore around four hours on average and weren’t drying (nor hydrating) with a light vanilla scent but no taste. They’re heavier than the original Butter Gloss formula, and they’re lightly tacky.

NYX Spice Cake, Toasted Marshmallow, Tres Leches Intense Butter Glosses

NYX Spice Cake Intense Butter Gloss ($5.99 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied beautifully with even, smooth color. On me, it lasted for almost five hours and left behind a slight stain. The formula was comfortable to wear but not hydrating. Urban Decay Quiver (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer. Milani Ravish Raspberry (06) (P, $5.49) is lighter, warmer. Milani Berry Tempting (05) (P, $5.49) is lighter, less pigmented, warmer. Maybelline Amethyst Potion (045) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented. Urban Decay Big Bang (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
