Laura Mercier Evening Pink Shimmer Lip Color

Laura Mercier Evening Pink Shimmer Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, neon strawberry pink with opaque color coverage and a lush, natural shine. It’s a strong, bold color that brightens up the face, and it doesn’t lean too blue. VS Be Mine is less pink, more coral. Dolce & Gabbana Fuchsia is less pink and not quite as bright. MAC Party Parrot is darker, redder, and brighter. MAC Catharina is bluer and darker. Chanel Insolente is slightly darker.

Chanel Paradis Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Paradis Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “pink coral.” It’s mostly pink with a hint of coral; more pink than it is coral, but if you called it pink-coral, I wouldn’t argue. Chanel Flirt is softer, less pink. MAC Blossom Culture is more coral. Dolce & Gabbana Pink is a bit darker.

Chanel Superstition Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Superstition Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “golden beige.” It’s a semi-sheer warm, light beige with a pale golden shimmer-sheen. It has color payoff, but it’s more of a translucent color, so it allows more of the natural lip color to peek through while giving the illusion of more coverage. On my lips, it helps to even out my natural lip color and provide a subtle shimmer, but overall, it’s more my-lips-but-better in regards to color. MAC Mellow Mood has a more golden shimmer and a pinker base color. MAC Freckletone looks similar swatched but has more color payoff, so it gives a very peachy color instead. Similarly, MAC To the Future has a similar color as the swatch but opaque color coverage and a creamy finish, rather than a shimmery one.

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink.” Sometimes brands get too creative with their color descriptions, but Chanel could afford to be less glib! It’s a soft, medium pink with very subtle blue undertones and a silver micro-shimmer that gives it a lightly frosted finish. The color payoff is semi-opaque–it gives decent color but there is some translucency in the color so your natural lip color will peek through. MAC Behave Yourself is similar but applies less evenly and perhaps a touch lighter. Dolce & Gabbana Fascination is similar in hue but several shades darker. MAC Speed Dial is a bit darker and has a golden sheen.
