Lilac (500)

Make Up For Ever Lilac (500) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage achieved with little product, and I’d say that semi-opaque coverage was within reach with just the barest dab of product (which also looked more semi-matte and stain-like).

It’s a liquid lipstick formula that is supposed to have “buildable color intensity and shine” with a “non-sticky, non-drying” formula that includes a slanted, flocked applicator and a squeeze-tube format. I don’t know that I would really describe the formula as buildable; I would say that you can apply the tiniest amount and get less coverage, though it would still be medium-to-semi-opaque and have less shine. For me, it seemed that more product yielded glossier coverage with slightly more pigmentation. Lilac had a consistency that was smooth, lightweight, non-sticky, and spread easily across the lips. It wore well for six and a half hours on the lips and left behind a strong stain. The formula felt non-drying.

Candy Pink (200)

Make Up For Ever Candy Pink (200) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had intense, opaque color coverage with little product.

It’s a liquid lipstick formula that is supposed to have “buildable color intensity and shine” with a “non-sticky, non-drying” formula that includes a slanted, flocked applicator and a squeeze-tube format. I don’t know that I would really describe it as buildable; I would say that you can apply the tiniest amount and get less coverage, though it would still be medium-to-semi-opaque and have less shine. For me, it seemed that more product yielded glossier coverage with slightly more pigmentation. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spread easily across the lips. If I pressed my lips together, I could see faint “lines,” particular with lighter shades like this one. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was non-drying. It didn’t seem to have any noticeable scent or taste.

Christmas Kiss

Estee Lauder Christmas Kiss Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium pinky-red with fine ruby red and pink pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly.

The Hi-Lustre formula is supposed to have medium coverage, shine, and shimmer with a hydrating formula. I’m a fan of the Pure Color lipstick range, and the Hi-Lustre formula “downside” is that it tends to be closer to semi-opaque to opaque coverage rather than a true medium coverage formula. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear with a touch of tackiness, that sat well on the lips and lasted for six and a half hours. The color stained slightly, but it was faint, and it felt hydrating while worn.

Just Peachy

ColourPop Just Peachy Liquid Lipstick Trio ($15.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) includes three shades of liquid lipstick–two are in the Ultra Matte formula and one is in the Ultra Satin formula. The Ultra Mattes were better than some of the recent releases I’ve tried, but Instigator did have slight “cracking” when I smiled. What was fun about this set was it went to show just how different products can look outside of their tubes–they almost looked alike in the group shot but on, the differences are magnified.

Slow Burn

Marc Jacobs Beauty Slow Burn Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium-dark, rosy mauve with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture had a light-medium consistency that spread well across the lips but did not feel too thin or too clingy on. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating over time.

The formula is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and have full coverage. If you like the idea of liquid lipstick but prefer more of a satin finish and something more forgiving on the lips, then this formula is going to be more suitable for you. If you prefer a flat, matte finish that’s transfer-proof, then this formula will not meet your needs. It is, literally, a liquid version of lipstick–it feels like a lightweight lipstick with light to moderate slip that lasts four to six hours.
