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.

Baby Doll Against BS

Pretty Vulgar Baby Doll Against BS Bury Them with a Smile Matte Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–that applied evenly across the lips and did not drag or tug. The consistency was smooth, thin but not clingy, and comfortable to wear for the four hours this shade lasted on me, though there was some color that had sunk into my lip lines (both initially as well as later on during wear). The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

It’s supposed to have “full coverage” with a hydrating, “long-lasting” formula and an “ultimate matte finish.” I only purchased three shades (there are eight) to try, but based on those three, the formula has a smooth, velvety consistency that is thinner but not clingy. There was enough slip that they did not tug when applied directly to the lips, but they did not slide around while worn. There was a tendency for color to settle into my lip lines a bit, which was more noticeable with the lightest shade I tried. They lasted between four to six and a half hours and were non-drying. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Guava

Jouer Guava Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had more of a “matte” metallic finish. It was harder to dupe compared from the shades I purchased from Jouer recently, mostly due to the finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on decently, but it wasn’t completely even and needed a second layer for full coverage, though the texture was more emphasizing of the texture of my lips with a second coat (and already accentuated by the initial layer). The color lasted for five hours on me but was non-drying.

The formula is supposed to be “weightless” with “full coverage color” that “lasts all day.” It is the type of liquid lipstick that dries to a matte, transfer-proof finish. I find the formula varies from semi-opaque to opaque coverage with the more metallic shades often being more semi-opaque and buildable. The texture is thin but not watery, so they dry down a little faster than average, but I rarely feel like I don’t have enough time to apply or that the application is difficult. The wear ranges from five to eight hours, depending on the shade, and the formula is non-drying to slightly drying, depending on the shade. The formula has a strong, sweet scent–almost like caramel and vanilla to me.

Artful Deception

Pretty Vulgar Artful Deception My Lips are Sealed Liquid Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a dark, taupe brown with warmer undertones and multi-colored pearl. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips with even, opaque color. The liquid lipstick was smooth, just a touch tackiness, and spreadable, though there was a bit of color that sat in my deeper lip lines. However, this wasn’t as noticeable in person as the glossiness distracted from it. The color wore well for almost six and a half hours with most of the glossiness

The formula is described as “full coverage” and “long-lasting” with a “glossy” finish. It is more like a literal interpretation of liquid lipstick, as the finish was absolutely glossy and the lipstick did not dry down and set. The formula was long-wearing, though, as the glossiness lasted for three to four hours and then wore down to a satin-to-matte finish that still was quite pigmented. Initially, I would have described it as more of a gloss, but the way they wore down to a satin finish eventually made them more like a very glossy lipstick after all. There was a faint sweet scent but no discernible taste.

Notorious (408)

Giorgio Armani Notorious (408) Lip Maestro Notorious ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied well to lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was velvety, creamy, and flattering on the lips as it masked my lip lines and did not sit in them. The color stayed on well for seven hours and left a slight stain behind, while the formula felt hydrating over time.

The Lip Maestro Notorious formula is supposed to have a “luminous matte” finish with “8 hours of wear” and “high pigment.” The Notorious shades are inspired by “chic Hollywood glamour” but otherwise appear very similar in feel to the original Lip Maestro formula. The consistency has more slip and a velvety-smooth feel that softly “clings” to the lips, so while the finish has a glossier look for the first few hours, the color stays on well. If you’ve ever used a silicone-based primer, there’s a bit of that feel to the formula overall. Most shades last between six and eight hours on me, are non-drying to lightly hydrating, and comfortable to wear. The formula is unscented and has no discernible taste.

Marc Jacobs Kate Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy mauve with subtle, cool undertones and satin finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that wasn’t too slippery nor was it too dry in the tube, so it glided on without tugging and delivered even coverage. The texture sat well on my lips and seemed to smooth out some of the texture on my lips. The lipstick was comfortable to wear and felt non-drying throughout the time it lasted (which was seven hours).

The formula is described as “highly pigmented” with “10-hour” wear and is “hydrating.” If you like creamy, satin-like color that’s very pigmented and comfortable to wear but aren’t going to hold the brand to its 10-hour wear time claim, the formula is well worth checking out! My experience with most shades has been the wear has been between four and eight hours, and they have been comfortable to wear with a few shades that can feel a bit drying toward the end of wear. There is a faint, floral scent but no discernible taste.
