Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “spiced brown.” It’s a subdued, rosy pink with a natural sheen. There’s none of the brown that you’d expect to see in “spiced brown,” but I would say that there’s a neutral element, like a beige or brown, that darkens and mutes the rosy color overall. Guerlain Ballade is redder, less pink, shimmery. Revlon Pink Truffle is less pink and more translucent. Bobbi Brown Nude Rose is lighter. MAC Glamourdaze is redder. MAC Offshoot is less pink, darker.

Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick

Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “punch of pink.” It looks like a fuchsia pink in the tube, but it’s much tamer swatched and applied. It’s a lightly cool-toned, medium pink with iridescent shimmer. On my lips, it brightened and added some cool-toned pink coloring. Guerlain Rose Ensoleille looks similar on but is a bit warmer overall. Guerlain Rose Piquant is cooler-toned. The shimmer was reminiscent of Revlon cupcake, which is more lilac and pigmented.

Dior Candide (457) (437) Dior Addict Lipstick

Chanel Charme is similar in color, a touch cooler, and more shimmery.

Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick

Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “soft coral.” It’s a shiny, soft coral with strong peach/orange coloring. On my lips, which have some natural pinkness but are not overly red or pigmented, it enhances the natural pinkness and adds warmth, but it looks very, very natural–if you compare bare lips to the swatch photo, you’ll see a definite difference, but from afar, you wouldn’t go, “Oh, she’s wearing color!” Bobbi Brown Pink Seashell is paler. MAC Razzledazzler is more pigmented.
