Maybelline Very Cherry Color Sensational Lipcolor

Maybelline Very Cherry Color Sensational Lipcolor ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is is a brightened blue-based red with a subtle sheen. When I saw Maybelline use this during Fashion Week in February, it looked like it might be a dupe for Chanel Dragon. It’s not a dupe, though they’re both blue-based reds with deeper ruby tones, so there are definitely similarities worth noting. MAC Runaway Red is a touch brighter and less blue-based. MAC Ruby Woo is cooler toned. Guerlain Garconne is more of a neutral red in comparison.

Make Up For Ever Folk Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick

It’s a new, limited edition shade in a new, coming-soon formula. Make Up For Ever has taken their Rouge Artist formula but given it a softer, sheerer color and finish.  Folk wore for three and a half hours, which is just a little below average (four hours).  It has a lighter texture compared to Rouge Artist, and it seems a slightly more hydrating, though I wouldn’t describe it as a moisturizing lipstick.  It has a slicker consistency that gives it a bit more glide across the lips thank Rouge Artist, which has a creamier texture.  I think it’s great the the brand is branching out with the formula and going for something that still has color but isn’t as creamy or as dense as their Rouge Artist range.

Burberry Devon Sunset Lip Cover Lipstick

Burberry Devon Sunset Lip Cover Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a soft coral with warm, peachy undertones. MAC So Vain is very similar, perhaps with a very subtle pink tint. Lancome Stylistia is similar but pinker. YSL Peach Passion is lighter, less pink.  It has just enough pink in Devon Sunset to make it a wearable warm coral on both cool and warm complexions.
