Sephora Pretty Princess & Queen Bee Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gels

Sephora Pretty Princess Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “holographic fuchsia.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with multi-coloured shimmer–though dominantly pink, lavender, and silver. This was the most pigmented of the four shades, though it was sitll only semi-sheer coverage; it just had a stronger tint. The consistency was smooth, non-sticky, and applied evenly with good shimmer distribution. On me, it lasted for four hours and was hydrating. MAC Social Season (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Diorosphere (996) (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). Sephora Gorgeous Red (29) (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Private Party (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Maybelline Lust for Mauve (535) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Fuchsia Mermaid & Good Fairy Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gels

Sephora Fuchsia Mermaid Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “holographic salmon pink.” It’s a light, pink-tinted base with lighter, rosy pink, silver, and gold shimmer. This shade lightened and brightened my natural lip color while adding a lot of shimmer and sparkle to the lips. I liked how the shimmer covered evenly, and it had more “opacity” due to the sheer amount of shimmer in it. The texture was smooth, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. The gloss lasted for three hours on me and was hydrating over time. MAC On Cue (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Seducing Sound (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). Revlon HD Amber (555) (P, $8.99) is warmer (90% similar). Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Buzz (324) (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Flare for Fantasy (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Fresh Peach (07) (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Bright Pink Bouquet (LE, $28.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Burberry Gold No. 25 (LE, $29.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Rags to Riches (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Freestyle (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Ideale & Expressive Rouge Allure Glosses

Chanel Ideale (22) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, milky pink with warm, yellow undertones and fine light gold pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the lighter color paired with the glossier finish seemed to make it more prone in highlighting the lines of the lip, though the settling wasn’t quite as noticeable due to the opacity of the product. It wore well for four hours on me, and it was comfortable and hydrating while worn. NARS Turkish Delight (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Six (Watercolor) (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Bijou (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Becca Guava/Opal (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Just Superb (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NYX Sorbet (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Lustrous Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Lustrous Lip Gloss Set ($40.00 for 1.28 fl. oz.) includes eight, full-sized (0.16 oz. each) of the brand’s bestselling Lip Glosses. This set is a great value, as it contains $128.00 worth of Lip Gloss. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth” and “weightless” with the “intensity of a stain” and “the mirror-like shine of a gloss.” Overall, the formula is semi-opaque to totally opaque with a mostly non-sticky consistency (it gets a little tacky towards the end of wear) and a wear time that varies between three and five hours. It was lightly to moderately hydrating while worn, and they applied evenly for the most part. I quite liked the set (and it’s such a great value), but there are a few misses in it.

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Violet Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. For long-time collectors, this will be your best bet between the three lipgloss sets as three of the shades are new (Narcissus is a repromote). MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).
