Anastasia Petal, Neon Apple, Punchy Red, Runway Red Lipglosses

Anastasia Neon Apple Lip Gloss
Anastasia Neon Apple Lip Gloss

Anastasia Petal Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with mostly even coverage–there was a smidgen of visible streakiness along the outer edge of my lips that I couldn’t smooth out, but it wasn’t as noticeable due to the general brightness and richness of the color at a normal viewing distance. The color wore well for five hours on me and was moisturizing. Christian Louboutin Beaute Colibretta (P, $85.00) is more muted (90% similar). Dior Plaisir (779) (LE, $35.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Glam (LE, $15.00) is brighter (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Anastasia Weekend Barbie (-, $16.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Follow (DC, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Neon Apple Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was great with nearly opaque color coverage, while the consistency was creamy and easy to spread across the lips. The only issue I had with this shade was that the consistency was thicker and “lines” were visible if I pressed my lips together. It wore well for just over five hours, though, and it was hydrating while worn. Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa (P, $85.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Forever Darling (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). Milani Red My Lips (12) (P, $5.49) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is more muted, cooler (95% similar).

MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Punchy Red (-, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). NYX Apple Crisp (P, $5.99) is lighter (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Punchy Red Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a jelly-like finish. The consistency was more gel-like with this shade, and while it was semi-opaque in coverage, it had the translucency of a lip stain, where it was very even but still the natural lip color came through. This shade wore well for almost six hours and was hydrating over time. MAC Smart Aleck (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is more muted (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty No Vacancy (P, $52.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa (P, $85.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Neon Apple (-, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Runway Red Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm undertones and fine gold and red sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went very evenly and smoothly. The consistency was light-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky, but this particular shade was very smoothing and made my lips appear plumper. It wore well for almost five hours and was moisturizing. MAC Ready to Roam (LE, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #402 Red to Go (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Special Force (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Totally Fab (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). NARS Le Palace (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Forever Darling (P, $24.00)(90% similar). NARS Mineshaft (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa (P, $85.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Illamasqua Touch (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Neon Apple (-, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Anastasia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors. The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).

Anastasia Melon, Maui, Neon Orange, Candy Coral Lipglosses

Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss
Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss

Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a brighter, light-medium peach-orange with warm undertones and a cream finish. There was a milkier quality to the color, and despite it being rather pigmented, it did not apply well. This shade settled into lip lines and was visibly streaky. On me, it wore for four hours and was hydrating. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Neon Orange (-, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Maui Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, but it was harder to apply this shade evenly, as it was more prone to streaking than some of the other shades in the formula. The consistency felt creamy and comfortable on the lips, though. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is brighter (95% similar). Chanel Super Coral (157) (LE, $34.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (95% similar). Illamasqua Mistress (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Tattoo My Heart (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Playpen (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Neon Orange Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with a hint of pinky-red tones paired with a cream finish. This shade was fully opaque, but it could have applied a little more evenly–it was slightly streaky and did not adhere as evenly around the inner center of my lips. The consistency was creamy, light-medium in weight, and comfortable to wear over the four hours it lasted. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Anastasia Melon (-, $16.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). NYX Orangesicle (P, $5.99) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Candy Coral Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, a little more gel-like, and it spread easily across the lips, but I did encounter a bit of streaking. It had good pigmentation, though, and it wore well for four hours on me. NYX Napoleon (P, $5.99) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Snitch (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Playpen (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge
Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge

Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy, almost jelly-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly, but this was one of the less pigmented shades in the range and did not have the same evenness in the application I had come to expect from the formula. The color wore well for just over five hours and was hydrating, though. MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Love You Big Time (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar).

Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bright, bold medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a creamy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it applied very evenly and smoothly. The texture was gel-like on the lips, but it was lightweight and made my lips appear smoother. This shade wore for over six hours and was moisturizing over time. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar).

Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (17) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a shiny finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which looked like a true stain, as it was translucent but still very visible in color. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and gel-like, where it made lips appear plumper and smoother. The color wore well for over six hours and felt hydrating on me. Anastasia Carla (-, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Chanel Crushed Cherry (DC, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Cle de Peau Deco (16) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm, reddish undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. The texture was thinner and did not seem as glossy or as gel-like as other shades in the range, so it wasn’t as flattering or as smoothing on the lips. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, at least, and it still wore better than most glosses at five hours. Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Crushed Coral (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Anastasia Papaya (-, $16.00) is brighter (80% similar). NARS Eternal Red (P, $26.00) is warmer (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Cle de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing “glossy stain” that give lips a “shiny, vinyl look” with “rich color.” The consistency is smooth, lightweight, and like a watery cream when initially applied, but it develops into a lighter weight gel texture after a few minutes. Most of the shades have medium or greater coverage, long-wearing, high-shine, and are hydrating while worn. There is a subtle floral scent to the formula, but I did not notice it except in the tube and did not encounter any taste. They look more like a stain than they actually behave like one, as I only found the darkest shades to leave behind any trace of color after it had worn away. There is a slight tackiness after an hour or so, but it never turned truly sticky.

Cle de Peau Lingerie Radiant Liquid Rouge
Cle de Peau Lingerie Radiant Liquid Rouge

Cle de Peau Lingerie (11) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a cream-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied smoothly, but some of the color settled into lip lines noticeably, particularly on my bottom lip. I was surprised at how it did not leave “lines” when I pressed my lips together as it is such a light shade. The texture was smooth, comfortable to wear, and felt hydrating over the five hours it lasted. Chanel Mystery (P, $30.00) is lighter, less pigmented, lower quality (95% similar). MAC Artful (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Super Nude (137) (LE, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). NYX Tres Leches (P, $5.99) is lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Chanel Fleur d'Eau (192) (LE, $30.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 302P Golden Coral (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar).

MAC Everlasting Nude (LE, $19.50) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cle de Peau Chenille (12) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a cream-like finish and lots of shine. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture was lightweight, gel-like as it “set,” and was very comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for six hours and was hydrating. MAC Hyper-Fabulous (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Intrigue (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Dolce Vita (DC, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Tuned In (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cle de Peau Flushed (13) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a subdued, medium-dark rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a fine, silver pearl. It was very pigmented, though just shy of being full coverage, and the color went on smoothly and evenly without streaking or looking patchy. The formula had a gel-like consistency that was comfortable to wear, as it wasn’t clingy or too tacky. I was able to wear this color for just over five and a half hours, and it was moisturizing while worn. MAC Astral (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Fast Life (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Frenemy (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (85% similar).

Cle de Peau Sequin (14) Radiant Liquid Rouge ($48.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bright, peony pink with warm, yellow undertones and a fine silver pearl. It had richer color payoff than the others, but the texture was thicker overall as well, which made it a little harder to apply and keep from welling up in my lip lines. The color wore well for just over four and a half hours, and it was nicely hydrating. Chanel Innocent (14) (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Maybelline Blush Essence (095) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Go for Girlie (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Anastasia Fall 2016 Lipgloss Set

Anastasia Fall 2016 Lipgloss Set
Anastasia Fall 2016 Lipgloss Set

Anastasia Fall 2016 Mini Lip Gloss Set ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized glosses in six, new and exclusive shades. I’m a big fan of Anastasia’s gloss formula for something more pigmented, longer wearing, and hydrating over time. On the whole, the set is nice–the colors are very autumnal, and for the most part, they applied well, had good color coverage, and were moisturizing and comfortable to wear.

Amber is a muted, medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, smooth consistency that applied evenly but had some color gather into lip lines. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Eight (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Live It Up (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Fresh Mango (26) (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Berry is a rich, dark reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic–fully opaque–and distributed evenly across the lips. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and mostly non-tacky throughout the wear. The gloss wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating over time.

Carla is a bold, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, fairly lightweight, and spread evenly across the lips. It had nearly opaque color coverage, which covered the lips well and did not appear streaky or feather over time. On my lips, the color lasted for five hours and was moisturizing.

Maple is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and gold and copper shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that felt comfortable on the lips, but it did not apply as evenly as it could have. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Anastasia Rum (-, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Raisin is a muted, medium-dark pinky mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones paired with a cream finish. The consistency seemed a bit thicker, and it didn’t seem to look as smooth on the lips, as it emphasized my lip lines (without really settling into them), particularly on my lower lip. It was richly pigmented, though, and the color spread evenly across the lips. This shade wore nicely for just over five hours on me, and it felt moisturizing to me. NARS Bound (P, $26.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rum is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented with full-color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. The texture was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted. MAC Chestnut (LE, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Area (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Formula Overview

Anastasia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors. The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).

Chanel Super Nude (137) Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, peachy-coral with warm undertones and very fine gold pearl. It had almost opaque color coverage, which applied smoothly without streaking, but some of the color welled up into my lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The consistency was thin but spreadable, lightweight, and just a touch tacky after a half hour of wear but never heavy or truly sticky. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Divergent Natural Virtue (LE) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Vida Loca (LE, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Chanel Super Coral (157) Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a slightly bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It was semi-opaque with even coverage, but the slightly thinner consistency made it less smoothing and plumping on so some of the color emphasized lip lines. The formula was hydrating over the five hours it lasted on my lips. Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Formula Overview

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to have the “colour intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” paired with hydrating, “long-wearing coverage.” It’s a solid gloss formula for someone who likes semi-opaque to opaque coverage and doesn’t mind a bit of tackiness (I find it develops within an hour or so of wear, but it is never heavy or super sticky). I tend to get wear between four and six hours, and the formula is hydrating and comfortable over time.
