Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry, Citrus Evolution, Passionate Peony Color Elixirs

Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture is thicker, mostly non-sticky, and was nicely hydrating while worn. On me, it wore well for four and a half hours. It does have a strong perfume-y scent and soap-like taste. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is warmer. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer. Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC x Cinderella Lipglasses

MAC Glass Slipper Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light milky pink with pinkish pearl.” It’s a translucent, milky light pink with fine silver and pink shimmer. Applied, you can see the milkiness as it lightens my natural lip color. It has a noticeable amount of shimmer, but it’s not a lot. It’s a subtler gloss than you’d expect, given how shimmery it appears in the tube. The gloss lasted for three hours on me. MAC has put out a lot of barely-there, shimmery kind of glosses, and I think they can be pretty and often look more sparkling (and interesting) in person than in photos. I’d love to have seen a little more pigment in the base, especially since the lipsticks are on the sheer side, too. Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is darker. MAC Poetic (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery. MAC On Cue (LE, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Beautiful Moves (LE, $22.00) is similar. Illamasqua Exquisite (P, $24.00) is more pigmented. Chanel Songe (191) (LE, $29.50) is similar. Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is similar. Guerlain Star Dust (900) (LE, $30.00) is similar. MAC Soft Spoken (LE, $15.00) is sheerer.

NARS Guyane & Vent Sale Lipglosses

NARS Guyane Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “seashell pink.” It’s a very light beige with a hint of pink and subtle shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff but settled into lip lines noticeably, and it wasn’t completely even. The texture was lightweight, lightly tacky, and lasted three hours but the color settled more and more into lip lines as it wore on. The formula was hydrating while worn. Maybelline Sandy Sensation (115) (LE) is sheerer, warmer. NARS Spring Break (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Orange Tempera (LE, $15.00) is pinker. MAC Emancipation (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Cut Loose (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC C-Thru (P, $15.00) is warmer. MAC A Quiet Roar (LE, $15.00) is warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Tenor Voice & Victoriana Lipglasses

MAC Tenor Voice Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “true classic red.” It’s a brightened, medium red with fairly neutral undertones. On me, it pulls almost warm-toned at times, but other times, it looks neutral or slightly pink-ish. It was richly pigmented and applied well for the most part. The color didn’t feather over the five hours it wore for. Revlon HD Fire Opal (560) (P, $8.99) is warmer, MAC Anthurium (LE, $19.50) is similar. Laura Mercier Poppy (P, $25.00) is warmer. Milani Red My Lips (12) (P, $5.49) is slightly warmer. Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is similar. Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
