Make Up For Ever C208, C209, C210 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C208 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was comfortable to wear, as it was lightly creamy but not overly slippery, so it sat well on the lips and didn’t slide around. This shade wore well for over six hours on me and left a stain behind. The formula was nicely hydrating. Smashbox Inspiration (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Romy (462) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Bellini (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Shiseido Liaison, Coral Shore, Ruby Copper Rouge Rouge Lipstick

Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a vibrant, long-wearing, and hydrating lipstick available in 16 shades inspired by red. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to fully opaque with a lightweight, lightly creamy consistency that wasn’t too thin or too thick, so it sat well on the lips and made mine appear smoother. The colors applied evenly on the lips and didn’t drag as the texture is very smooth and emollient enough to have a soft sheen but not enough to slide around easily. The formula lasted anywhere from four to eight hours, which was nicely hydrating.
