Anastasia Orchid, Electro, Potion Lip Glosses

Anastasia Orchid Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium lavender-purple with warm, pink undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff, while the gloss had enough thickness that it didn’t settle too much into lip lines, but it didn’t feel heavy. The biggest upside is how evenly the color applies, despite being lighter and quite pigmented. Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Dusty Lilac (P) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa & Casanovella Loubilaque Lip Lacquers

Christian Louboutin Beaute Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is newest launch from the brand. It is a lipgloss that’s supposed to have “brilliant, bold color” with “high-shine.” There are eight shades available; I purchased four to try and don’t expect to purchase the other four at this time. The gloss is housed in a clear, vial-like case, which is made out of plastic, with a flexible doe-foot applicator. It comes with a metallic ribbon that loops through the lid so that you can wear it (I would recommend using a sturdier chain). The formula is smooth, almost gel-like that feels cushion-y on the lips that is mostly non-sticky, and the shades I tried were fairly pigmented. The wear was between five and seven hours, while the formula was hydrating. The big issue I had with these was a tendency for them to get on my teeth. The formula has a floral scent and often soap-like taste. The formula reminded me a lot of Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss and Dior Fluid Addicts (this one feels more water-like initially, but it develops to a similar consistency within 30 seconds). I think the way they look on the lips is beautiful and lush, but the taste was frustrating for me.

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. NARS Toy (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Venom (P) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Dark as Night (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Potion (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is warmer (85% similar).
