Chanel Intime, Confident, Viva, & Aura Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks

Chanel Intime (93) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft pink.” It’s a light-medium, pink-beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had sheer color coverage–it primarily lightened my natural lip color. It doesn’t apply as evenly as I’d like, and on me, it’s only lightly moisturizing. The color lasts two hours on me, which is below average for lipstick, though this is a more emollient, higher slip formula, so it’s not a surprise. Revlon Demure (105) (P, $8.99) is more matte. Tom Ford Beauty Summer Fling (04) (LE, $49.00) is pinker, more pigmented. YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is more opaque, lighter. Too Faced Taffy (P, $21.00) is more pigmented, warmer. Chanel Melba (75) (LE, $34.00) is more beige. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is a touch lighter, less glossy. MAC Shy Shine (P, $16.00) is more pigmented, warmer, darker.

MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipsticks

There are six shades of MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) in the upcoming Moody Blooms collection. The formula has a light-medium weight to it, is quite slippery with some hydration. Some shades are more pigmented than others, and the coverage can be very smooth and glossy or more splotchy with darker shades.

Melt Cosmetics Space Cake, Stupid Love, Summer! Lipsticks

This review features the other three shades of Melt Cosmetics Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.16 oz.) that I purchased. You can see the first three here as well as get a more in-depth review of the formula. To summarize, the issue with these is really the consistency is quite dry, which means the lipstick tugs and drags on the lips as you apply it. They are somewhat drying on me, though they aren’t as drying as you might expect given their texture. The lighter shades tend to “crack” over time and gather into lip lines as they wear down, though the formula wears quite long in general but will leave a strong stain behind. Removal is somewhat challenging, and I’d recommend busting out your industrial-strength remover and several cotton pads. The formula has a sweet, vanilla scent that almost gets tropical-like, but it can smell and taste like play-doh at times.

Givenchy Corail Decollete, Rouge Egerie, Corail Signature Le Rouge Lipsticks

Last up, three new coral shades in the Givenchy Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) formula. It’s a very creamy, lightweight, long-wearing lipstick that is hydrating, comfortable to wear, rose-scented, and is typically very pigmented. Some of the lighter shades don’t apply quite as flawlessly as medium and dark shades, but they’re particularly flattering on lips as they make lips appear smoother.

Givenchy Brun Vintage, Rose Boudoir, Nude Guipure Le Rouge Lipsticks

Here are three of the new mid-tone, pink-hued shades of Givenchy Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) that recently released. The Le Rouge formula is lightweight, creamy, pigmented, hydrating, and fairly long-wearing, though some of the lighter shades tend to be less flawleess in application and can wear closer to average in wear time. They have a rose scent but no discernible taste.
