Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry red with a hint of plum. When worn, it is dark without being overwhelmingly so; it’s a softened dark, if that makes any sense! There is a hint of shine, and the lip color really seems to melt into the natural lip and ends up looking rather natural. It’s a very fitting shade for fall, and I think it is incredibly easy to wear, particularly for thsoe who tend to stay away from darker lip colors. This is dark without being dominating.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipcolor Swatches, Photos, Reviews (Part 1)

What’s a better test of their “silk moisturizing complex” than swatching 44 lipsticks over seven days? The biggest claim that Lip Perfection makes is that by prolonged use of their formula, your lips will be “soft, smooth, [and] beautiful” within seven days. The other claim being “in a single stroke, lips are enhanced with rich, rewarding color.” So last month, I worked through the 44 shades over a week’s period and am ready to roll out the reviews, photos, and swatches! (You’d be surprised how un-fun it is to go through and crop photos for 44 lipsticks.)

Chanel Liberte Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Liberte (44) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) looks like it’ll be a brighter coral-red from the tube, but when swatched and applied, it’s a much softer color with only a hint of coral.  It’s a very played down mix of peach and pink.  It gives semi-opaque color coverage, but it seemed a little patchy compared to some of the other Rouge Coco Shines I’ve tried.    Rouge Coco Shines are supposed to deliver softer, sheerer color, so I would not expect full color coverage with this formula (consider Rouge Cocos or Rouge Allures for more color payoff).

MAC Sheer Plum Lipstick

MAC Sheer Plum Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “rouged chocolate” with a lustre finish.  It’s a reddened brown with semi-opaque color and a subtly glossy finish. For a lustre, it’s particularly pigmented, though it’s not completely opaque.  It glides on easily and leaves behind ample amount of color with a good amount of shine.  I actually found this lustre to be a bit moisturizing, as compared to other lustres that do nothing for me in the moisturization department.

Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry Rich Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright pink fuchsia.” It’s a bright, medium-dark pink with a little touch of fuchsia–it is blue-based but subtly so.  Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Colors are really comfortable to wear with their semi-matte finishes, creamy but lightweight textures, and rich color coverage. They are also scent- and taste-free, which should appeal to some. Wear was anywhere from four to six hours, with deeper shades like Cosmic Raspberry wearing for six hours.
