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). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Neon Orange (-, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (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). Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Mistress (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Tattoo My Heart (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (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.

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).

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).

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. Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (95% similar).

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 (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. MAC Artful (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Mystery (P, $30.00) is lighter, less pigmented, lower quality (95% similar). Chanel Super Nude (137) (LE, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

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).

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). Urban Decay Frenemy (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Anastasia St. Tropez (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler (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).

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). Bite Beauty Eight (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Live It Up (LE, $15.00) is lighter (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.
NARS Plato's (LE, $26.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Perpetual Holiday (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte WCW (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Unspeakable (P, $26.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Modern Drama (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale (P, $52.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Deviant (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Sookie (LE) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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. Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (18) (P, $48.00) is darker (95% similar). Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) (P, $48.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $15.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Revlon HD Carnelian (545) (P, $8.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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). MAC Feelin' So Good (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Maple (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Christian Louboutin Beaute Casanovella (P, $85.00) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Fudge (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

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

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. Charlotte Tilbury Sweet Stiletto (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is lighter (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). Anastasia Maui (-, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (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.

It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly, and the consistency was lightly creamy, emollient, and didn’t tug when applied. I didn’t feel like it slid around when I wore it, which made it last a bit better–almost four hours. It was lightly hydrating and had a vanilla scent to it with no taste (to me, at least). This shade had the level of translucency where just enough of the lip color will come through and alter how warm/cool/light/dark this shade looks based on one’s natural lip color.

It had rich color coverage that went on smoothly, but the consistency itself was unforgiving and emphasized the texture of my lips with some of the color gathering in lip lines (the brightness and depth of the color made it harder to notice, at least). It felt more velvety and didn’t tug going on, but it just didn’t sit as well as on the lips overall. This shade wore well for over six hours but was a bit drying after four hours of wear. The formula was vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste. Because it’s imperfect, I think that the $45 price tag is hard to swallow, and the color itself (even the finish) is incredibly dupable–even within Estee Lauder’s permanent range.

I found the gloss to be one of the more disappointing and lackluster (there’s a pun there, I know it!) products in the collection; it is such a weak gloss formula with the type of packaging that I know many are not enamored of, and there’s a pitiful amount of it in the container. It is strange to me that there is not even a noticeable amount of sparkle/shimmer in it to work as a layering product over the two lipsticks. It was moderately tacky, thin, difficult to spread across the lips, and then it welled into lip lines and looked a bit streaky and uneven on the lips to boot! Another thing that struck me as odd was that it is fig-scented, which is the old school Estee Lauder lip product smell, when they’ve been moving to vanilla scents (true in the Pure Color Envy line, and also true in the lipsticks from this same collection). The best part about the gloss was that it lasted for four hours on me and wasn’t drying.
