Dior Tropiques, Ciel Rose, Plaisir 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.

Sephora Glossy Pink, Pin-up Pink, Raspberry Punch, Fuchsia Fiesta, Cougar Red 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.

Sephora Perfect Nude, Paradise Pink, Coral Confession 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.

(LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Revlon HD Smoky Topaz (570) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery. MAC Modest (P, $22.00) is cooler. MAC Lovingly Yours (P, $22.00) is cooler.

Surratt Au Naturelle, Ensoleille, Flamant 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.

Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss

Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) released a few months ago as a new formula from the brand. The new formula is supposed to be a “long-wearing, couture lip balm gloss” that is supposed to “dispense just the right amount” with its “pen-like applicator” that is hydrating. As far as color coverage is concerned, there is a lot of marketing speak, and best I can surmise is… your mileage may vary, since it is the “perfect dose” and “the right touch of vibrant color.” I bought six shades to test out, and across all six, color coverage is semi-opaque, so there’s some translucency but noticeable color on the lips, but the stronger your natural lip color is, the more it may impact how the color translates on your lips. The gloss has a smooth, lightly thickened gel-like consistency that feels plush and covers fairly evenly on average; it doesn’t feel heavy, but it has that jelly-like consistency of balm. They’re moderately hydrating–less than the best balm, better than the average gloss–with a high-shine finish. They’re non-sticky, which makes them comfortable to wear and easier to smooth out. The formula is noticeably rose-scented, though not as intense as the Fluid Addicts, so I don’t normally notice it as a taste, just a scent. The lasting power is three to five hours, which is good for a gloss as non-sticky as this. All six of the shades I tried had a very faint pearl to them, which is definitely there, but it’s hard to really see the impact of the pearl on the lips from a normal viewing distance.

Sephora Ultra Violet (18) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium fuchsia-pink with cool, blue undertones and fine lighter fuchsia and violet pearl.
