Urban Decay Carnal, Broken, Manic, Hex, Crank Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Carnal Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium warm nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satiny sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that went on nicely and evenly. The lipstick was comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted. I found it just a bit moisturizing while worn. Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Carnal (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a new formula from ColourPop that’s supposed to be “super intense” with “high impact metallic pearls” and a “non-drying formula” that “is extremely long-wearing” (but it is “not completely transfer resistant”). Of ColourPop’s liquid lipstick formulas, this had the most slip and least pigmentation (across all four shades)–more semi-opaque, though they were buildable. The consistency spreads well across the lips, but it could look more even; I think the darker coloring of the shades made some of the translucency less apparent. They dry down to a mostly transfer-proof finish, and they are flexible and comfortable to wear. I got between four and six hours of wear with these, and they seemed to break down easily with food compared to the Ultra Satins/Mattes. Two of the four shades were a little drying, while the other two were non-drying.

Guerlain Mauve Gloves, Lilac Belt, Plum-brella La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They are deliberately scented to smell like La Petite Robe Noire, which is a sweet, fruity and floral fragrance–the scent is noticeable both in the tube and applied, though I do not notice it after about about an hour or so of wear (if you are sensitive to scent, I would consider trying these in person or purchasing with the ability to return). There was a somewhat soapy, sweet taste (it contains Stevioside, used as a sweetener) at times, particularly if I ate/drank with the lipstick on.

Tarte Texas Toast & Swamp Family Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Texas Toast Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a light-medium consistency that was slightly mousse-like, not as thin as some of the Lip Paints have been. It had a smooth feel on the lips, but it slides around noticeably. The color lasted for four and a half hours on me with some color fading more strongly from the center of the mouth, and the formula was somewhat drying overall. Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Oblivion (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Too Faced Cool Girl (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (80% similar). Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Tantric, Lovelight, Ex-Girlfriend, Hitch Hike, Amulet Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Tantric Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “light nude-pink [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it applied unevenly and settled into lip lines from the get-go. The consistency was lightly creamy and balm-like, but I just couldn’t keep the color in place.

MAC Highlights, Really Me, Red Rock Lipsticks

MAC Highlights Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “very pale creamy peach [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a natural shine. It had sheer pigmentation with a lightweight texture with some slip. Unfortunately, it applied unevenly and gathered into lip lines from the get-go on my lips. The color lasted for an hour and a half on me, while the formula was neither hydrating nor drying. This is a repromote, though the permanent version seemed darker swatched and in the tube, but it didn’t vary as much applied. Chanel Cheri (61) (DC, $34.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar).
