Too Faced Melted Rainbow Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Rainbow Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Rainbow Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Rainbow Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is described as a “magenta.” It’s a brightened, light-medium fuchsia-magenta with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. Revlon HD Tourmaline (510) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, sheerer, less purple. NARS Angela (P, $32.00) is more matte, more muted. Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is more matte. Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Rush (LE, $18.00) is more matte, sheerer. Bite Beauty Violet (P, $24.00) is less glossy. Bite Beauty Moscato (P, $28.00) is pinker. Bite Beauty Satsuma (LE, $24.00) is pinker, more matte. NARS Full Frontal (LE, $26.00) is more muted. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia (LE, $7.49) is pinker. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is more matte. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nylon (P, $18.00) is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Melted lipstick formula is designed to have “the shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick.” It was intensely pigmented with a glossy finish that applied evenly and smoothly. The color sits between Melted Violet (lighter, purpler) and Melted Fuchsia (darker, pinker). It wasn’t hydrating over time, but it wasn’t drying, so the formula is comfortable to wear, and on me, the color lasted for eight hours before I removed it. I kind of wish they had injected this with rainbow-hued shimmer.

Chanel Catherine, Teheran, Sari Dore Rouge Coco Lipsticks

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick — Catherine, Teheran, Sari Dore

Chanel Catherine (410) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink peach.” It’s a light-medium, softened peach with a hint of pink and a very fine, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but the texture had enough slip in it that it didn’t apply as evenly as desired. On me, the color lasted for three hours but some color pulled into lip lines after two hours of wear. It was neither hydrating nor drying on me. There was a surprising number of dupes for this one. MAC Soft Talkin’ (LE, $20.00) is darker. MAC Real Redhead (LE, $16.00) is slightly pinker. MAC French Twist (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Chanel Adrienne (402) (P, $36.00) is slightly warmer. Colour Pop Button (P, $5.00) is more matte, more opaque. Bite Beauty Leche (P, $24.00) is more opaque. Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $34.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is more opaque. NARS Raquel (P, $32.00) is slightly brighter, more opaque. Chanel Cheri (61) (P, $34.00) is pinker. Estee Lauder Insatiable Ivory (P, $30.00) is warmer. Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $34.00) is lighter. NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is darker, less glossy. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is similar. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is pinker. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is warmer, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Teheran (412) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a rich, brightened, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and lighter, frosted pink shimmer. It was one of the more shimmery shades that I have seen in the line-up! It had mostly opaque pigmentation, which applied smoothly and evenly. The color stayed on for four and a half hours, and it was very lightly hydrating. The shimmer is what makes it more unique. Gucci Beauty Fever (P, $39.00) is lighter, less shimmery. Bite Beauty Cin Cin (P, $24.00) has no shimmer. MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $16.00) is sheerer, less shimmery. Givenchy Mandarine Bolero (304) (P, $36.00) is darker, no shimmer. Chanel Etonnante (131) (P, $34.00) is more matte. Marc Jacobs Beauty Understudy (114) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery. Guerlain Gipsy (P, $51.00) is darker, brighter. Chanel Teheran (DC, $34.00) is very similar in color, but the new formula has a glossier finish. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Sari Dore (414) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “satin apricot.” It’s a very slightly muted, medium orange with subtl,e reddish tones and a healthy dose of fine shimmer. It had fairly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. This lipstick wore for four hours on me, and it was lightly hydrating. Chanel Misia (418) (P, $36.00) has a stronger red tone and is a bit darker, but it’s not that different. Guerlain Peach Satin (540) (LE, $37.00) is lighter. Givenchy Corail Signature (317) (P, $36.00) is brighter. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Sari d’Eau (P, $35.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Sari Dore (DC, $34.00) seemed to have a stronger pink tint to it. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Bite Beauty Shade 005 Limited Release Creme Deluxe Lipstick , Dupes

Bite Beauty Shade 005 (
Bite Beauty Shade 005 (“Lavender Thistle”) Creme Deluxe Lipstick

Bite Beauty Shade 005 (“Lavender Thistle”) Creme Deluxe Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “hazy lilac.” It’s a light-medium, muted lavender with gray overtones and subtle cool, pink undertones in a natural finish. NYX Playdate (P, $6.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Weekend 2 (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, more matte. MAC Notice Me (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Olivier (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Colour Pop Brills (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler-toned, matte. NARS Dominique (P, $32.00) is slightly pinker, more opaque, darker. MAC Dodgy Girl (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is grayer, more matte. MAC Nocturnal Instincts (LE, $16.00) is slightly darker. MAC Lavender Whip (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Digitalis (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Creme Deluxe formula is supposed to be their higher-end, luxury-level lipstick, though I personally can’t say that these are better than their Luminous Creme lipstick (which is fantastic). This limited edition shade sold out quite quickly once released, but hopefully some of the dupes will help those who weren’t able to snag one. The texture is lighter-weight and thinner and seems a little less emollient in comparison to the Luminous Creme formula with this shade. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, so the natural lip color will come through and may make this shade lean pinker or redder, depending on what tones you find in your natural lip color. It applies somewhat evenly, and honestly, it looked even when I looked in the mirror, but the close-up shot shows that it’s not quite even in some places. On me, this shade lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on unevenly and tended to catch on any imperfection on the lips, so I highly recommend exfoliating prior to applying this one. It wore well for three hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. This is a permanent shade. Tom Ford Beauty Vanilla Suede (DC, $50.00) is pinker.

MAC Tumble Dry Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light peachy coral [with a Lustre finish]. It’s a muted, peach-orange with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage–which is in line with the Lustre formula–that is a little streaky going on. It lasted for two hours and was drying for me. Marc Jacobs Beauty Severine (112) (P, $30.00) is more opaque. MAC Sweet & Sour (P, $16.00) is more opaque, pinker, more matte. MAC Posh Tone (P, $22.00) is darker, more matte.

Round-up: MAC Huggable Lipcolours Overview & Thoughts

MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) will release online on May 7th and hit stores on May 14th. The best way to describe these is that: it’s a semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage formula with moderate shine, some cling, and moderate wear with some hydration. They apply best if you let the formula melt slightly against the warmth of your lips prior to pulling the bullet across your lips. Some of the shades are more similar to each other than not, so not all nine (that I have, there is one more that I don’t have) will appear distinct, especially if you have more color to your natural lips than I do.
