Urban Decay Backtalk & Carnal Matte Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay Backtalk Matte Revolution Lipstick
Urban Decay Backtalk Matte Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Backtalk Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte mauve-nude pink.” It’s a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. On me, it leans a little warm against my undertones, but it looks more cool-toned in the tube (to my eye). It had full color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly as the consistency was creamy and glided across the lips without dragging. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Mehr (P, $16.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Indian Rose (P, $50.00) is darker, glossier. Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is less glossy. Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is warmer. NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is glossier. NARS Vanessa (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier. NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier. Colour Pop Squeeze (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Addison (LE, $32.00) is lighter. Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. Colour Pop Solow (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Carnal Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte medium warn nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark orange-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even color without dragging during application. The consistency was comfortable while the color lasted for seven hours on me. Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) (P, $7.49) is brighter, glossier. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Femme Fleur (LE, $26.00) is brighter. Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is lighter. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is warmer. MAC Mocha (P, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Both of these shades will be exclusive to UrbanDecay.com and freestanding Urban Decay stores beginning mid-August.

Formula Summary | Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new formula releasing on July 8th (later for retailers). There are eleven shades in the range with two exclusive to Urban Decay’s website and freestanding stores. The formula is supposed to be smooth, pigmented, creamy, and “provide long-lasting moisture.” It’s a very pigmented, semi-matte to natural finish formula that wears a really, really long time and wears away evenly without bleeding or feathering. My only issue with these is that they’re more of a satin finish than a true matte one, but if that’s not a deal-breaker, they’re worth checking out. I was extremely impressed by how long-wearing the formula was without being drying. I could wear a shade from 9AM to 9PM and not once think, “I really wish I could apply lip balm.” Some shades have more slip than others, and as a result, the ones with more slip have a more satin-like sheen to them, while a couple were less creamy and applied with more of a semi-matte finish from the get-go. Most shades wore down to a traditional matte (but not liquid lipstick flat-matte finish) within an hour to two of wear. The texture is significantly less creamy with a lot less slip compared to the Sheer Revolution and original Revolution formulas, which have a much more luminous sheen with a slight tackiness to the texture, whereas these have no tackiness and a more velvety feel (they remind me of NARS Audacious Lipsticks in that respect). These hug the lips more as a result but surprisingly, they’re very comfortable to wear. What’s particularly nice is that the texture has some creaminess and weight to it, so while it can transfer onto cups and the like, there’s so much of it that it doesn’t wear away the color, and you can also smooth out any smudges if you dabbed with a napkin. There was no discernible scent or taste.

Kat Von D Noble & Bow ‘n’ Arrow Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “petal pink nude.” It’s a brightened, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, but it was one of the harder-to-apply shades in the range. It was sheerer and thinner, so it was prone to streaking, but the formula would allow for you to apply a second coat to get better coverage out of it (and probably minimize some of the streaking). The color lasted for almost six hours, but it had more noticeably faded from the center after four hours for me, so it doesn’t fade as evenly as you’d like (especially with a lighter/brighter shade such as this one). It was slightly drying after four hours of wear. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is darker, glossier. Melt Cosmetics Summer! (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Riot House (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is cooler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lament (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is darker, more muted, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Bow ‘n’ Arrow Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “fawn nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark beige-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. It was soft when dried, and it didn’t “crack” or look split down the lip lines after it dried down. The drying time was a little faster than many other shades I’ve tried from the formula. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me with little breakdown but was slightly drying after the fifth hour of wear. MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is cooler, glossier. MAC Nude (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Stone (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wear, full coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth, matte finish.” Of the liquid lipsticks on the market that go and have a full dry-down, Kat Von D’s formula remains my favorite, as it is the easiest to apply with the kindest learning curve and lasts awhile. Some shades are more drying than others, but typically they don’t get drying until after five to six hours of wear. They often wear anywhere from six to ten hours, depending on what you’ve had to eat or drink during the day. This formula is thin but not watery, has a longer dry down than most liquid lipsticks (but I noticed some of the newer shades dried to a mostly dry finish faster), and layers better than most (you can touch-up or add a second layer for more coverage). It takes about a minute for it to mostly set, but it will remain a little tacky in places for up to three minutes so you’ll want to avoid pressing your lips together if it doesn’t seem totally dry initially. There isn’t a noticeable scent or taste. If you don’t mind the trade-off between very long, near-pristine wear and being drying, it’s worth checking out. As a bonus, these also come with one of the most generous amounts of products within the realm of liquid lipsticks!

Bite Beauty Sugared Maple & Warmed Maple Matte Creme Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Maple Matte Creme Lipsticks
Bite Beauty Maple Matte Creme Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Sugared Maple Matte Creme Lipstick ($28.00 CDN for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, berry-plum with cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed to have a very, very light dusting of fine pearl, but it was so subtle, I thought I might be imagining it. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thinner, more slippery consistency compared to other shades in the launch. It didn’t slide around as much as it could have, so it looked mostly even. The color lasted for six and a half hours and was lightly hydrating–but again, not at all matte (not even satin). Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is less glossy. Burberry Bright Plum (15) (P, $30.00) is warmer. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is less glossy. MAC What Joy (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC What Joy (LE, $16.00) is warmer. YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Cabaret (146) (LE, $30.00) is lighter, more muted, less glossy. Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Aubergine (P, $24.00) is lighter. Gucci Beauty Bitter Grape (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Bite Beauty Warmed Maple Matte Creme Lipstick ($28.00 CDN for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, tangerine orange with warm, yellow undertones and a satiny sheen. It was one of the more “matte” shades in the collection of five, though it isn’t truly matte. It had rich, opaque color payoff in a single stroke, while the texture was creamy, light-medium in weight and thickness, and very comfortable to wear. The formula was hydrating over the five and a half hours this shade lasted. Inglot #103 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker. MAC Morange (P, $16.00) is lighter. Inglot #103 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker. Milani Sweet Nectar (P, $5.49) is less glossy. Urban Decay Bang (P, $22.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Tomango (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. NARS Geraldine (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter. NARS Timanfaya (P, $25.00) is lighter, less glossy. Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. NARS Iberico (LE, $25.00) is less glossy. MAC Love Feeling (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, less pigmented. Estee Lauder Daring (P, $30.00) is lighter. MAC Neon Orange (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Bite Beauty Maple Matte Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to leave a “velvet, soft focus finish” with “highly pigmented, moisturizing wearable color” that is also “longwearing.” If you’re not a fan of mattes, don’t fret, these aren’t really matte (and if you’re a fan of matte, you might want to keep looking). There are five shades, and all of them have a satin or glossier finish (two are pretty glossy). The glossier the shade, the more poorly it applied with streaky, uneven coverage that was prone to feathering along the edges of the natural lip, while the more satiny shades were more pigmented with more even application and longer, better wear. On me, I found the formula to be lightly to moderately hydrating with wear ranging between four and seven hours. The formula has a sweet, maple scent with a very subtle, almost sweet taste. These are exclusive to Canada.

P.S. — Big thanks to Julie over at Swatch & Review for helping me buy these! 🙂

Laura Geller Love Me Dew Moisturizing Lip Crayon Trio

Laura Geller Love Me Dew Moisturizing Lip Crayon Trio
Laura Geller Love Me Dew Moisturizing Lip Crayon Trio

Laura Geller Love Me Dew Moisturizing Lip Crayon Trio ($25.00 for 0.30 oz.) includes three shades of jumbo-sized lip pencils that twist-up. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-hydrating” with “shiny color,” and it’s pretty much tinted lip balm. I believe this is the first time I’ve tried this formula, but I enjoyed them overall. They have sheer to semi-sheer that’s buildable, wears three to four hours, and is hydrating over time. I like that they twist-up, so you don’t have to worry about wasting product when sharpening. The texture is lightweight with moderate slip, so their biggest downfall is that they don’t always look perfectly even. The formula is vanilla-scented but the scent didn’t linger or translate into a taste for me. Dragon Fruit Sorbet and Mango Sorbet are both available as permanent singles, while I didn’t see Fig Prosecco on Laura Geller’s website, and they retail for $16 as a standalone formula (so the kit is worth $48).

Fig Prosecco is a softened, peachy-brown with warm undertones and very fine, golden peach pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on evenly and smoothly while hydrating the lips over the three and a half hours it lasted. Guerlain Gracieuse (DC, $51.00) is darker. MAC Posh Tone (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. NARS Peloponnese (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter, less glossy. shu uemura OB Dream Orange (LE, $30.00) is glossier. Maybelline Stormy Sahara (945) (P, $7.49) is less shimmery. Givenchy Beige Caraco (107) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Bite Beauty Caramel (P, $28.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter. bareMinerals Fall in Love (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Mango Sorbet is a muted, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had sheer coverage that gave lips more of a tinted/stained appearance, while the glossier finish made lips appear plumper. It wore well for three hours but was hydrating over time. MAC Play It Soft (LE, $20.00) is cooler. Estee Lauder Charmed (P, $30.00) is more pigmented. Estee Lauder Surreal Sun (P, $30.00) is brighter, more pigmented. Givenchy Corail Decollete (206) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. MAC Call the Hairdresser! (LE, $16.00) is more pigmented. NYX Haute Melon (P, $4.00) is more pigmented. Chanel Boheme (91) (P, $35.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dragon Fruit Sorbet is a brightened, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-sheer coverage that applied easily without dragging. There was a little extra slip to this one, so it seemed to show “lines” if you pressed your lips together (I’d recommend applying a little less and pressing lips together to check). It wore well for almost four hours on me and was moisturizing while worn. MAC Glamorized (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Chanel Jean (454) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. Urban Decay Ladyflower (LE, $22.00) is more pigmented, less glossy. MAC Boutique Pink (LE, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Lust Extract (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Bold Spring (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Bite Beauty Maple Matte Creme Lipsticks
Bite Beauty Maple Matte Creme Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Braised Maple Matte Creme Lipstick ($28.00 CDN for 0.15 oz.) is a lightly brightened, medium-dark brick red with warm, orange undertones and a glossy sheen. It had rich, opaque coverage with a light-medium thick consistency that went on smoothly and evenly. The color lasted for seven and a half hours, was hydrating, and left a stain behind.

Bite Beauty Candied Maple Matte Creme Lipstick ($28.00 CDN for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen.

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit

MAC Sophisticate Face Kit ($49.50 for 0.43 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, two blushes, and two lipsticks. Worth pointing out right away is that the back of my palette says the second blush on the left is Simply Bliss, whereas Nordstrom’s product listing had Cream Soda in its place; I checked both of them, and the blush in this palette is slightly more pink-tinted and a little lighter but not by much.

Linda is described as a “peachy tan shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium-dark orange-copper with hints of brown and warmer undertones paired with a pearly sheen. It was slightly powdery with semi-opaque coverage that wore for eight hours. Becca Songbird (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Becca Rose Gold (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter. Becca Blushed Copper (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery, lighter, darker. Illamasqua Expose (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented.

View dupes side-by-side.

Simply Bliss is described as a “light neutral coral.” It’s a muted, light-medium peachy-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It darkens as it is applied to the bare skin, so unless you have very dry skin and/or powder prior, it may do the same. The texture was slightly powdery but blendable with good pigmentation. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Ripe Peach (LE, $32.00) is darker. MAC Ripe Peach (LE, $32.00) is darker. Illamasqua Flirtatious (LE, $26.00) is darker, glossier.

View dupes side-by-side.

Wedge is described as a “soft muted beige taupe.” It’s a muted, medium yellowed brown with a matte finish. It seems a bit lighter than the permanent version of Wedge to me. It had sheerer coverage with a dusty texture. The color lasted for seven hours on me. Urban Decay Naked (P, $18.00) is less pigmented, more pigmented. Jane Rock Star (DC, ) is lighter. Kat Von D Harlow (P, ) is darker. Ulta Sable (, ) is less shimmery. theBalm C3 (LE, $16.00) is darker, less pigmented, more muted, lighter. View dupes side-by-side.

With Flair is a muted, coppery-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a fairly soft, blendable texture, but it was a smidgen dry, which made it a challenge to work with on bare lids. It wore for seven and a half hours on me.
