MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass & Lipstick

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly but did settle into lip lines to a noticeable degree. The texture was light-medium in weight, tacky, but comfortable and lasted for four and a half hours on me. NARS Bound (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC It's a Strike (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Anything But Demure (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% 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.
