Givenchy Beige Plumetis, Rose Fantaisie, Moka Imprime Le Rouge-a-Porter

Givenchy Beige Plumetis (103) Le Rouge-a-Porter
Givenchy Beige Plumetis (103) Le Rouge-a-Porter

Givenchy Beige Plumetis (103) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural shine. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, but for such a light shade, I was surprised it was really sheer! The texture was smooth when applying, but the lighter color seemed to cling a little more noticeably. On me, it lasted for three hours but settled into lip lines. It was neither hydrating nor drying. MAC Romantic Breakdown (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Chanel Catherine (410) (P, $36.00) is warmer. Chanel Satisfaction (89) (P, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Naked Bud (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is lighter. MAC Real Redhead (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Givenchy Rose Fantaisie (202) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that had a tendency to pull into lip lines, and it looked a little streaky. The color stayed put for two and a half hours, and the color migrated more and more noticeably into lip lines over time. Urban Decay Sheer Obsessed (P, $20.00) is darker. MAC Light English Red (LE, $30.00) is warmer. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is darker. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $22.00) is darker. MAC Real Doll (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Givenchy Moka Imprime (304) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on fairly evenly, though it could have applied better. The texture was lightweight, a little clingy but not drying. This shade wore for three and a half hours on me. Chanel Grace (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, darker. Tom Ford Beauty Bittersweet (03) (LE, $50.00) is brighter, warmer. Chanel Scenario (P, $35.00) is warmer. Chanel Suzanne (438) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler. Bite Beauty Rosewood (P, $28.00) is cooler. Guerlain Air Kiss (304) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: Givenchy Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a hydrating, sheer coverage lipstick packaged in a slim tube that’s a riff off of the original Le Rouge formula. This formula is significantly lighter in weight and look, as well as much sheerer (and that is by design). The texture has a very smooth, velvety feel to it, almost like a stiffer lip balm, but it doesn’t tug on the lips. The color tended to look more like a stain of color, and it felt a little clingy, even if it wasn’t actually drying. For me, the formula was lightly hydrating at most and tended to wear only a few hours. These have a floral scent that’s noticeable in the tube and once applied, though I didn’t notice any taste.

Givenchy Rose Perfecto (204) Le Rouge-a-Porter ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a soft sheen.

Marc Jacobs Have We Met & Eat Cake Sheer Lip Gels

Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) Sheer Lip Gel
Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) Sheer Lip Gel

Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) Sheer Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “shimmering warm pink.” It’s a medium, rosy pink with warm, yellow undertones and gold shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that delivered fairly even coverage. The more emollient consistency made it easy to apply and felt comfortable once on, though the wear was only three hours. The formula felt lightly hydrating to me, but some of the shimmer and color pulled into lip lines over time. MAC I’m In (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. MAC Bare Hug (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. Too Faced Metallic Tu-tu (P, $21.00) is darker. Bobbi Brown Ballerina Shimmer (12) (P, $26.00) is more shimmery. MAC Lip Blossom (P, $16.00) is brighter. Chanel Liaison (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy. MAC Giddy (P, $16.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Las Salinas (P, $45.00) is lighter, glossier. Chanel Vera (420) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Eat Cake (150) Sheer Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rosy nude.” It’s a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. The consistency had some slip and a little more weight to it than with the previous shade. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly with some color pulling into lip lines as it wore on for four hours. Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Sheer Liar (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted. MAC Grande Dame (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker. Guerlain Avarice (P, $49.50) is darker, less glossy. Chanel Mademoiselle (434) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Bare Hug (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy. MAC I’m In (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: Marc Jacobs Beauty Sheer Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be hydrating, smoothing, and have sheerer color payoff. The texture has a moderate amount of slip and feels “wet” applied, though it is thinner, so it doesn’t slide around as much as a thicker lipstick would. The wear time is three to four hours typically with a lightly hydrating formula. The lipstick has a sweet, floral scent, but it is very subtle, even when smelled directly from the tube.

Marc Jacobs Beauty So Sofia (236) Le Marc Lip Creme

Marc Jacobs Beauty So Sofia (236) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “electric watermelon.” It’s a bright, medium coral-pink with a satin finish. It had rich, fully opaque pigmentation that glided on without tugging for smooth, even coverage. The texture was creamy enough to feel comfortable during application, but it didn’t slide around. The color wore well for six hours but was a little drying. Marc Jacobs Beauty Core Cora (234) (P, $30.00) is cooler. Chanel La Malicieuse (46) (P, $34.00) is cooler.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Je t’aime (238) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rum raspberry.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pink-coral with a very subtle shimmer to it over a satin finish. It had good color payoff paired with a lightly creamy consistency that sat on the lips well and didn’t tug during application. The color wore for five and a half hours and was a little drying over time. Bite Beauty Corvina (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter. NARS Grace (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter.

Formula Summary: Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) claims 10-hour wear with “vivid pigment” and a “rich, velvety” texture that is “ultra-hydrating.” As you might expect, they don’t last ten hours; they last four to six hours with some leaving a stain. The texture is lightweight, creamy, and glides on without dragging or tugging on the lip, but it doesn’t have a lot of slip so it stays in place. The formula isn’t hydrating, and it can be drying, depending on the shade. The lipstick has a sweet, floral scent, but it is very subtle, even when smelled directly from the tube.
