St. Tropez

Jouer St. Tropez Lip Topper ($16.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a sheer base with fine pink and silver pearl and larger pink flecks of glitter. The consistency was thin with a fair amount of slip–it felt a little oily (and it is advertised as being “with coconut oil”)–but the glitter and shimmer spread evenly across the lips, which I always find to be key in a sheerer, shimmery gloss. I could feel some of the sparkly bits on the lips. The Lip Topper formula can be used alone or over a lip product, and it is designed to be a sheerer product. It was sheerer than Tan Lines but like a warmer, pinker version of Frost Bite. This shade wore well for three hours on its own and was hydrating.

P.S. — DermStore has the new Jouer summer collection and currently has a 20% off code (MDSALE20, which works sitewide) for Memorial Day weekend 🙂

ColourPop Curvii Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.085 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peach with a hint of pink and barely there pink sparkle. It was supposed to have medium coverage, and it had more semi-opaque coverage when I tried it. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and mostly non-tacky, so it spread well across the lips with fairly even coverage. There was minimal streaking (mostly around the edges of my lips) with some color that had settled into my lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Spotlight Me

MAC Spotlight Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick was creamy with some slip but did not feel overly slippery on the lips, so it did not slide around or feel like a high maintenance product. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, though it was shy of being truly opaque on me. There was a smidgen of color that sat in my deeper lip lines but was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Memoire (224)

Chanel Rouge Memoire (224) Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cool undertones and fine, ruby red pearl. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t quite opaque, with a smooth, even application that did not settle into my lip lines and actually made my lips appear smoother and plumper. It had a very creamy, balm-like consistency that was quite emollient and glided across the lips effortlessly. The formula was comfortable and hydrating to wear over the five hours the color lasted. There was a faint stain left behind as well.

The formula is supposed to offer the “intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” and “comfort of a lip balm.” The consistency of this formula was incredibly soft and melted against the lips, so it was easy to over-apply (and subsequently, easy to run through the product!) with an emollient quality found in lip balms. In general, color coverage was semi-opaque to opaque, with wear coming in at three to five hours, depending on the shade. The formula was comfortable to wear and very hydrating both during and after wear. The downside was that these types of twist-up lipsticks (in the slim casing) tend to contain noticeably less than a standard bullet lipstick (0.10 to 0.12 oz. usually!) and the more pliant formula made it easy to reapply and run it back and forth more than necessary (for the coverage). There was a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though, with no discernible taste.

Chanel Rouge Esquisse (227) Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a smattering of very fine pearl. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a very smooth, creamy, and slippery consistency that glided on easily and was extremly comfortable to wear. The more slippery consistency showed very slight “lines” when I pressed my lips together, and I noticed a bit of color in my deeper lip lines. The shinier finish distracted from the settling, though. This shade wore well for three and a half hours and was moisturizing.

NARS Orgasm Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink base with warmer undertones and fine, gold pearl with a few larger, gold sparkles. It’s a new, permanent shade that’s part of the Satin Lipstick formula, which is described as a “lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color.” In particular, this shade was described as “sheer provocation” and as a “pink color with a translucent touch” — seemed like code for sheer.

I found the formula to be thin, emollient but not slippery–it applied without tugging on my lips but did not slide around on my lips, though there was a smidgen of color that gathered in my deeper lip lines on my bottom lip. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage. The lipstick lasted for three hours on my lips and seemed very lightly hydrating. There was no discernible taste or smell.
