Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa & Casanovella Loubilaque Lip Lacquers

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa Loubliaque Lip Lacquer
Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa Loubliaque Lip Lacquer

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.

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a glassy, cream finish. The color coverage was nearly opaque, but there was a hint of my natural lip color (and freckle) peeking through. It applied beautifully with even, smooth color, and it wore well for seven hours. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding around the lip line. NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Anastasia Neon Apple (-, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Forever Darling (P, $24.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Anastasia Socialite (-, $16.00) is more muted (90% similar). Anastasia Punchy Red (-, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Le Palace (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $15.00) is more muted (90% similar). NARS Special Force (LE, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) (P, $48.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #402 Red to Go (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Runway Red (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Vie d'Enfer (869) (P, $35.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Red My Lips (12) (P, $5.49) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Brickhouse (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty No Vacancy (P, $52.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Anthurium (LE, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Laura Mercier Poppy (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). NYX Apple Crisp (P, $5.99) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Christian Louboutin Beaute Casanovella Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a deep, red-burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and fine pearl. The consistency was a little thinner than the other shades, and it was harder to control along the edge of the lips–I felt like it kind of pooled past where I had initially applied it. It had semi-opaque coverage and darkened my lip lines noticeably. It did apply evenly, though, and lasted for six hours while hydrating my lips. Anastasia Venom (-, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Black Cherry (-, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Rum (-, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Rouge Tribal (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Sin (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

Anastasia Sepia, Vintage, Dusty Lilac Lip Glosses

Anastasia Lip Gloss
Anastasia Lip Gloss

Anastasia Sepia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark reddish-brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that spread well across the lips and didn’t appear streaky. The color wore well for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. Anastasia Tara (-, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Kiss Don't Tell (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Fab Tested (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Fudge (-, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Vintage Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a dusty, medium pink-mauve with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly. I noticed a little bit of color settling into lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only up-close). This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and felt moisturizing. MAC Just Superb (P, $20.00) is less pigmented (95% similar). Buxom Creamsicle (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC It's a Strike (LE, $20.00) is darker, less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Rose Petal (05) (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Double Tap (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). MAC Anything But Demure (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 (LE, $15.00) is cooler (85% similar). Dior Swan (263) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). NARS Bound (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Dusty Lilac Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink-lavender with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightweight, smooth, and comfortable consistency that highlighted lip lines slightly. This shade wore well for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating. MAC Carousel (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Constant Craving (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). MAC Speed Up (LE, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar). Anastasia Orchid (-, $16.00) is darker (80% 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 Pastel Pink, Peony, Rio Lip Glosses

Anastasia Pastel Pink Lip Gloss
Anastasia Pastel Pink Lip Gloss

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 (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Peony Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy pink with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth and easily spread across the lips, but there was faint streaking and a bit of color welled in lip lines. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, though, and lasted for a solid four hours. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Blushing (-, $16.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Edward Bess First Kiss (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Rio Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is an intense, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It was mostly opaque with just a faint bit of the natural lip color still coming through in some places. The consistency was a little thicker than other shades in the range, but it didn’t feel heavy or goopy on. Similarly, it applied fairly well with only a smidgen of streaking along the edges, as it seemed to self-level overall. The color lasted for five hours on me and was moisturizing over time.
MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Scandal (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Priscilla (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Barbie Pink (-, $16.00) is warmer (85% 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
MAC With Gusto Vamplify Lipgloss

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. Anastasia Venom (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Dark as Night (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Potion (-, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Toy (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Sway to the Sound Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender purple with cool undertones and a cream finish. It applied fairly evenly, though it highlighted lip lines as some of the gloss gathered there. This shade had mostly opaque coverage and lasted nicely for five hours. The formula was moderately hydrating.

MAC Saucy Miss Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark blue-violet with a cream finish. I find it appears bluer when swatched, but due to it being only semi-opaque, the pink tones of my natural lips seems to make it appear almost purplish on. It applied unevenly and tended to look streaky on. The color lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

MAC Acting on Impulse Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a deep bluish-teal with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it did not apply particularly well, as the color gathered in lip lines and could have been more even. It lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating (that was the highlight of this one).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to have intense, vivid color paired with a moisturizing, glossy, long-wearing formula. Some shades are very pigmented while others are semi-opaque, and some shades apply evenly while others are more streaky. They have a light-medium thick consistency that’s not heavy or goopy, but it’s not really thin; however, they’re really smooth and creamy, so they feel nice on. There’s no tackiness initially, and it feels a lot like lip balm to me–soft, smooth, and my lips felt supple. I find they develop light to moderate tackiness as they wear on. They wear anywhere from three to five hours and are lightly to moderately hydrating over time. The formula has strong, vanilla scent (stronger than their lipsticks; I can smell it for a bit even when it is applied, not just in the tube) but no discernible taste.

Editor’s Note: At the time of the original review, there were no similar shades of lipgloss close enough to be considered dupes for Sway to the Sound, Saucy Miss, or Acting on Impulse; if there are any dupes in the future, the post will automatically update with them (but it’s not an error!).

MAC Anything But Demure Vamplify Lipgloss
MAC Anything But Demure Vamplify Lipgloss

MAC Anything But Demure Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium mauve-pink with warm undertones and a smattering of fine, gold pearl. It had good pigmentation that went on evenly, though I noticed some of the gloss welled up in lip lines. It wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, though. The gloss was comfortable to wear and wore well for four and a half hours. The formula was hydrating for me. Tarte Double Tap (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Snap (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC It's a Strike (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Earth & Fire (35) (P, $12.00) is lighter, less pigmented (85% similar).

MAC Fab Tested Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It applied really well with smooth, even coverage that didn’t settle into lip lines. The color payoff was mostly opaque, and I think it would be totally opaque with an additional half layer of gloss. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing over time. Anastasia Sepia (-, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Fudge (-, $16.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

On me, the gloss lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Fab Tested (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Smart Aleck Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bold, bright, medium-dark pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had good pigmentation–not quite opaque–with a translucent quality to it that reminded me of a stain or jelly. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and easy to wear over a six hour period, as the formula was moderately moisturizing. MAC Right Up My Alley (LE, $20.00) is more muted, warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Punchy Red (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Revlon HD Carnelian (545) (P, $8.99) is warmer (90% similar).

Anastasia Summer 2016 Mini Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Lip Gloss
Anastasia Lip Gloss

Anastasia Summer 2016 Lip Gloss Set ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, travel-sized glosses in hues from rosy brown to berry. All six shades are new and limited edition. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth” and “weightless” with the “intensity of a stain” and “the mirror-like shine of a gloss.” If you love really pigmented gloss, Anastasia’s is well-worth trying, as many apply well, have full coverage, last a good awhile, are comfortable, and are mostly non-sticky. There are a few misses in the range, but for the most part, I’ve been impressed. I really hope they’ll release a few of these individually into the permanent range! The set contains $42.00 worth of gloss (full-size is 0.16 fl. oz. for $16.00), for reference.

Blushing is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly with almost no visible streaking, but it did pull into lip lines slightly for me. I didn’t notice it as much from a normal viewing distance, though. The consistency was smooth, comfortable, and lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted. Anastasia Peony (-, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Captivating Carnation (080) (P, $8.99) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Fearless (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Edward Bess First Kiss (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Sequin (14) (P, $48.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Flushed (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Ten (Watercolor) (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Blush Essence (095) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (85% similar). Illamasqua Indulge (P, $22.00) is brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Caramel is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had intense color payoff with a smooth, creamy texture that applied evenly to the lips. Like Blushing, it sat in some of my deepest lip lines, which you can see in the close-up photo, but I couldn’t see it in person. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating. Anastasia Kristen (-, $16.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). NYX Chocolate Crepe (P, $5.99) is darker (85% similar). MAC Show Me (P, $19.50) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Grape Jelly is a bright, medium-dark purple with warm, vred undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The texture was light-to-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky. This shade lasted for five hours on me. MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (DC, $28.00) is more muted, warmer (80% similar). MAC Heroine (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

St. Tropez is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with a ton of metallic gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, though it was the least pigmented shade in the set. The coverage was even, while the gloss was comfortable to wear with a lightweight, more gel-like consistency compared to the other shades. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating. Cle de Peau Flushed (13) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). NARS Fast Life (LE, $28.00) is warmer (80% similar). MAC Mega Hug (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tango is a medium-dark, pink-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was very, very rich, while the formula had a creamy, smooth, and comfortable texture that applied evenly. This shade lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time. NARS La Main Bleue (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay After Dark (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NYX Spice Cake (P, $5.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). NYX Toasted Marshmallow (P, $5.99) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Toffee is a medium brown with warm, peachy undertones and very fine pink shimmer in a mostly cream finish. The shimmer is hard to detect, and that’s possibly due to the consistency, which is smooth and light-medium in thickness, so it may cover some of the shimmer once applied. It went on fairly evenly, but it did emphasize lip lines slightly. This shade wore well for four hours on me and was moisturizing while worn. Anastasia Kristen (-, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) (DC, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Show Me (P, $19.50) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Liar (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar).
