Maybelline Retro, Too Cute, Sassy Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Glosses

Retro

Maybelline Retro Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep burgundy with warmer undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage was good, though shy of truly full coverage, and while it did not appear streaky, it did pull into my lip lines noticeably. The gloss was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, and comfortable to wear as it adhered well and didn’t slide around but was also lightly hydrating. It wore well for five and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have “full coverage” that won’t “feather or migrate” paired with a “high-impact glossy finish.” The formula is light-medium in thickness–by no means a thin, featherweight gloss but not shy of being totally goopy or heavy-feeling–with moderate tackiness. I find that it initially went on feeling like a thicker, creamy gloss with a lot of slip, but it developed into more of a gel-like consistency that adhered better and did not slide around after 20 to 30 seconds. I did not experience feathering or migration with any shades tested so far (and I went for the deeper shades first!). The wear has ranged from four to six hours with a non-drying to lightly hydrating effect. The formula had a subtle, sweet scent but did not taste soapy or linger as long as I have experienced with Maybelline lip products in the past.

So Hot

Maybelline So Hot Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it was not full coverage. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately sticky, but it adhered and sat well on the lips without feathering or settling into my lip lines. The color stayed on well for over six hours and was somewhat hydrating while worn.

Tease

Maybelline Tease Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on without streaking, but the color looked patchy and sank into so many of my lip lines. There was also something about this particular shade’s formula that made it harder to apply: it was thinner, almost runny, and it was very hard to keep in place, even after it became more gel-like in texture. It wore for four hours but sank further into my lip lines over time. The formula was lightly hydrating, though.

Royal

Maybelline Royal Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a cream finish. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable but not practical–it felt overwhelming with more than one layer, as the gloss itself was thicker and heavier. One layer was comfortable, as it developed into a more gel-like feel that did not slide around, but two layers made it seem more slippery to me. The gloss pulled into my lip lines and applied unevenly overall. It did wear awhile at six hours, was lightly hydrating, and left a fuchsia stain behind.

Frost Bite

Jouer Frost Bite Lip Topper ($16.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a clear base with silver, gold, and violet particles of shimmer and sparkle. It had sheer coverage, which was as described, that applied evenly across the lips. There was a nice amount of shimmer all over the lips, and it had a strong, mirror-like shine. The consistency was lightweight, smooth without being gritty, and felt like a cross between balm and gloss. The color wore well for three hours on its own but was hydrating over time. The formula has a sweet, sugary scent.

Skinny Dip

Jouer Skinny Dip Lip Topper ($16.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink shimmer. It had sheer coverage that applied fairly evenly with good disperson of shimmer/sparkle across the lips. (The Lip Topper formula can be used alone or over a lip product, and it is designed to be a sheerer product.) There was a bit of product that settled into my deeper lip lines, but the shinier, sparklier finish made it less noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The formula felt thin, balmy, and a little oily to me with three-hour wear that felt hydrating over time. The Lip Topper formula does have a sweet, sugary scent.
