MAC Giddy, Lip Blossom, Shy Shine Lipsticks

MAC just added several previously released shades (that were limited edition) to their permanent range, and three of them I haven’t already reviewed in the past, so I bought those shades so I could share photos/swatches with you!

Guerlain Gladys (78), Galiane (15), Gaetane (16) Rouge G Lipsticks

Guerlain Gladys (78) Rouge G Lipstick ($51.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant fuchsia.” It’s a rich, medium-dark fuchsia-shimmered berry with cool undertones and a luminous sheen. The color payoff was incredibly intense and opaque–one pass is all you need–and the coverage was even and made lips look smoother. This shade wore well for six hours, and it left a noticeable stain behind, while still being hydrating and comfortable to wear. This is a new and permanent shade. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is lighter, brighter, less shimmery. YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is darker. YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (P, $34.00) is darker. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is sheerer, more muted. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is darker. Guerlain Gigi (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $35.00) is brighter, more fuchsia. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tom Ford Lip Shimmer

Tom Ford Lip Shimmer ($49.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new formula released in two, limited edition shades for summer. These are supposed to give a “glimmering effect” or “veiled over [lipstick] to add radiant shimmer,” and the formula is supposed to be hydrating as well. If you’re not into sheer, shimmery color, you’ll want to just skip this post entirely; both shades are on the sheer side–mostly shimmer without a lot of color. I did not find the formula moisturizing; I actually felt like it was somewhat drying, and the high frost/shimmer content was a little uncomfortable to wear. Initially, it feels very slick and emollient–like a glaze–but it dries down and all that glossy goodness disappears and all that is left is shimmer, which has a noticeable texture once the shine is gone. I also tried the gold shade as a highlighter, but it’s somewhat tacky on the skin and doesn’t sit as well on the skin as a true liquid or cream highlighter does.

Guerlain Geraldine (77) & Geneva (48) Rouge G Lipsticks

Guerlain Geraldine (77) Rouge G Lipstick ($51.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “luminous pink.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with cool, bluish undertones and a glossy shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the color applied evenly and made lips smoother and plumper than they actually were (which is where Rouge Gs shine). The color wore well for five and a half hours, and it was nicely hydrating while worn. This is a new and permanent shade now available from the brand. Estee Lauder Infamous (P, $30.00) is brighter, less glossy. MAC Bold Spring (P, $22.00) is slightly more fuchsia. YSL Fuchsia Tourbillon (31) (P, $34.00) is darker. L’Oreal Pink Flamingo (180) (P, $8.95) is less glossy. NARS Goodbye Emmanuelle (LE, $26.00) is lighter. MAC Playtime (LE, $17.00) is purpler. NYX Pink Lyric (P, $4.00) is darker, more muted.
