Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set

Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set

Tarte Holiday 2015 Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set ($21.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a travel-sized set of four of the brand’s Amazonian Butter Lipsticks, which are okay if you like a more balm-like, semi-sheer, lightly shiny formula, but not so much if you were banking on Tarte delivering on their promise of “hydrating creamy, full-coverage.” I reviewed the formula here when it first launched, and they’re very lightly hydrating with short wear time; unfortunately, these were consistent with that prior experience. They have a lightweight, balm-like consistency that goes on without tugging but wear away with two hours (except one shade, Sangria, lasted closer to three hours) and aren’t nearly as hydrating as they claim. They are mint-scented and packaged in cardboard tubes (same as the full-sized versions). If you’re unfamiliar with minis, they tend to be quite narrow, but I didn’t have any issues with the bullets breaking. The formula has a stronger mint scent and a very light mint taste (at times). A full-sized Amazonian Butter Lipstick retails for $17.00 and contains 0.10 oz. (or $170.00/oz.), so this set contains $23.80 worth of lipstick (I’m not sure how they got to a $32 value, which is what is listed on Sephora).

Punch is described as a “mauve pink.” It’s a subdued, medium pink with soft, warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff that applied without dragging and deposited color evenly. The color lasted for two and a half hours, and it was slightly hydrating. Dior Diorkiss (578) (P, $35.00) is more muted, less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Revlon Pink Truffle (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Bellini is described as a “golden pink.” It’s a light, pinky-peach with gold shimmer. It had sheer color payoff that lightened my natural lip color while adding light shine and noticeable shimmer. It was gone within two hours of wear, and it was neither hydrating nor drying. Surratt Beauty Jolie Laide (P, $36.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar).

Mimosa is described as a “peachy nude.” It’s a soft, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly, though it had a bit more slip and could look streaky if you pressed your lips together. This shade wore for two hours on me and was lightly moisturizing. MAC Touche (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Crystal Baby (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Sangria is described as a “berry red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and had a comfortable feel to it. The color wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating. Estee Lauder Inspiring (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Clinique Love Pop (P, $18.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Hibiscus (P, $35.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar).

Bobbi Brown Pink Nude Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Pink Nude Luxe Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Pink Nude Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale pink nude.” It’s a muted, medium pinky-peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was moderately creamy with some slip (but it didn’t slide around) that applied with mostly opaque color.

It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, creamy, glide-on consistency. The color wore well for four hours, but I had some color pull into lip lines after three hours of wear. The formula was comfortable to wear and very moisturizing. MAC Cozy Up (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Estee Lauder Covetous Nude (P, $30.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Mod Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale yellow beige.” It’s a light, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a cream finish with light shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a creamy consistency, but it was very unforgiving. It seemed to exacerbate the natural texture of my lips and made them look uneven, almost dry. This was one of the worst-performing shades in the range for me. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Nearly Nude (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC She's a Peach (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Nudist (P, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). bareMinerals Sexpot (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way. The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer-wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on (it’s no Dior/Chanel-level scent!). In general, I like Bobbi Brown’s lipstick formulas, and this one feels creamier and more hydrating than others, but for pigmentation, you can’t go wrong with this or the Rich Lip Color formula.

Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Red Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an intense, medium-dark red with strong, cool blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly, but you can see that there is a noticeable veil of translucency that lets the natural lip color come through. The color wore well for seven hours and left behind a stain, but it was a bit drying after five hours of wear. Tarte Bae (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC MAC Red (P, $17.00) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). MAC Frank-n-furter (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever Red Ink (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).

FORMULA SUMMARY | Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “buildable, hydrating formula” that has a “modern-matte” finish. The texture has a more velvety consistency (think silicone-based face primers) that feels smooth and lightly creamy, but it is thinner and fairly lightweight. I find they cling slightly, but not in an uncomfortable way, with wear time that ranges from four to six hours. Some shades are drying, others are hydrating, and it seems to vary from shade to shade for me. The formula has a lightly sweet, vanilla-like scent but no discernible taste. They tend to be mostly opaque, and I wouldn’t describe them as buildable–just semi- to mostly opaque.

Dior Diorkiss, Fashion Night, Be Dior Dior Addict Lipsticks

Dior Diorkiss (578) Dior Addict Lipstick
Dior Diorkiss (578) Dior Addict Lipstick

Dior Dior Addict Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) was recently reformulated and relaunched for fall with a large variety of shades. I bought three to try, which are reviewed below. The updated formula is supposed to have “intense color” with a “long-lasting top coat” for greater shine and longer wear. I can only speak based on the three I tried, but the coverage is more semi-sheer to semi-opaque, lightweight and a little clingy, with natural shine. They wear three to four hours and are lightly hydrating. I was surprised to discover that they were unscented (and also had no taste), as I associate Dior lip products as usually being perfumed. The texture is more balm-like, and they soften as they melt against the warmth of the lips, but they never really drag or tug, even initially. I actually quite liked them as a lip product, but I was completely surprised that they weren’t marketed as more buildable/medium-coverage products, so if you like your lip color sheerer, you may like these, but if you were drawn in by the promise of intense or “high-impact” color, I’d look elsewhere.

Dior Diorkiss (578) Dior Addict Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff that went on fairly evenly and smoothly, but it was nowhere near “intense” in coverage. The color lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Tarte Punch (LE, $16.00) is brighter, more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Fiend (DC, $22.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Tulip (P, $16.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Out for Passion (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Infamous (228) (P, $30.00) is lighter, more pigmented, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Mystical (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cary (P, $35.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Bite Beauty Hazelnut (P, $28.00) is lighter, more pigmented, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Fashion Night (881) Dior Addict Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark berry pink with lighter fuchsia and violet pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly with a light shine. There was subtle shimmer that was fine and never felt gritty, but it was still noticeable on. The color lasted for four hours on me, and it was moderately hydrating while worn. Surratt Beauty Glitterati (P, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Intriguing (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Tiger (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Cabaret (146) (DC, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Bitter Grape (P, $39.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Chanel Erik (456) (P, $37.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Boyfriend Stealer (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Otranto (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Be Dior (976) Dior Addict Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, pinky-red with very subtle, fine fuchsia pearl. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that noticeably tinted the lips but allowed a lot of the natural lip color to come through. The shimmer is subtle, as is the shine. On me, this lasted for four hours, but the shine was gone after two hours, so this ended up looking more like a soft stain. Colour Pop Peacocky (DC, $5.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Revlon Sorbet (P, $7.49) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Etienne (446) (P, $37.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Suspense (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Illusion (660) (LE, $37.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Red Teddy (021) (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). Revlon Whimsical (115) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, glossier (85% similar).

It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly velvety consistency that didn’t drag on lips, but it had a thinner feel and clung a bit. This shade lasted for five hours, was lightly drying over time, and there was slight settling in lip lines after three hours of wear. Tarte Top Down (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Charlotte Tilbury Lost Cherry Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This may be the closest one gets to a “cool” coral, even though is still warm-toned (kind of like a “warmer” blue). It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, velvety texture that glided across lips easily. The color lasted for five hours, wore well, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Charlotte Tilbury Sexy Sienna Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peach-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish–there are teeny, tiny shimmers in it to my eye. It had full color payoff with a soft, velvety feel that was comfortable to wear while being lightweight. It wore well for four hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “buildable, hydrating formula” that has a “modern-matte” finish. The texture has a more velvety consistency (think silicone-based face primers) that feels smooth and lightly creamy, but it is thinner and fairly lightweight. I find they cling slightly, but not in an uncomfortable way, with wear time that ranges from four to six hours. Some shades are drying, others are hydrating, and it seems to vary from shade to shade for me. The formula has a lightly sweet, vanilla-like scent but no discernible taste. They tend to be mostly opaque, and I wouldn’t describe them as buildable–just semi- to mostly opaque.

Anastasia’s Liquid Lipstick is supposed to be “ultra-saturated” and “deliver an intense shot of matte pigment in one easy swipe” that will “stay put for hours.” It’s one of my least favorite Liquid Lipstick formulas, as it has a really long drying time and is a drying formula overall. Midnight had good color coverage with a slightly thin consistency that seemed thicker than other Anastasia shades but thinner than Paint. It takes about ten minutes to dry down and fully set, and it remains fairly transfer-resistant for the six hours it wears, but it does fade unevenly from the center of the lip for me. I also get slight “cracking” once I smile as the formula clings noticeably. It was somewhat drying after three hours of wear.
