Chanel Amant Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Amant Rouge Coco Lipstick
Chanel Amant Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Amant Rouge Coco Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, coral-red with subtle warm undertones and a natural sheen. MAC Must Be Red is brighter, warmer. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is less pigmented, lighter. Guerlain Coque d’Or is more shimmery. Dior Lady is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

This is one of five shades in chanel’s Avant-Premiere collection, which are all new and part of the permanent range. The Rouge Coco formula is supposed to glide on, be hydrating and moisturizing, and provide full coverage color. Amant was opaque, and the consistency was lightweight, creamy, and applied even, smooth color without pulling or tugging on the lips. This shade lasted five and a half hours on me, and it did leave a light stain behind. I found it moderately hydrating while I wore it, but what really stood out to me was just how smooth the color looked applied to lips. It really looked like it had melted and combined my natural lips so it never looked heavy.

MAC All About Orange Lipsticks (Part 2)

MAC Razzledazzler Lipstick
MAC Razzledazzler Lipstick

MAC Razzledazzler Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light cream peach [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a lightly pink-tinted, light-medium coral with a luminous sheen. It has mostly opaque color payoff but there is an underlying translucency and slight sheerness that is more Lustre-like. This lasted two and a half hours on me. Tom Ford Frolic is warmer, sheerer. MAC Style Surge is brighter, warmer. MAC Reel Sexy is lighter, pinker. MAC In a Heart Beat is lighter. MAC Cut a Caper is pinker. MAC Coral Bliss is slightly lighter. MAC So Vain is similar. Estee Lauder Naked is lighter and more matte. Burberry Devon Sunset is less pink. See comparison swatches.

Tart & Trendy ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright neutral orange cream [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a brightened, medium orange with a luminous finish and warm, slightly yellow undertones. It had mostly opaque color payoff with just a bit of sheerness–but it was definitely more pigmented than the average Lustre (which may be a happy accident for some!). I started my morning off wearing this, and it lasted three and a half hours on me. It felt somewhat drying (which is my typical experience with Lustres, so if you usually find them moisturizing, then we have opposite experiences, on average). Maybelline Electric Orange is redder in tone and a bit darker. MAC Booyah is slightly darker and more red-toned. MAC Good to Go has a strong red undertone and is darker. MAC Fashion Nomad is bit brighter/more intense. MAC Sounds Like Noise is lighter, yellower. MAC Saigon Summer is more muted and sheerer (which contributed to how much more muted it looked in comparison). MAC Morange is darker and redder. See comparison swatches.

Neon Orange ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright clean orange [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a bold, medium orange with strong, warm red undertones and a natural sheen. It had full, opaque color coverage, and it was lightly creamy. This shade is permanent at PRO stores (and regular customers now have access to the majority of the PRO range online). I’ve had this on for nearly four hours, and it’s still going strong. Shades like Maybelline Orange Edge, Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin, MAC Good to GoMAC Morange, and OCC Psycho are all rather comparable to each other. Shades like Maybelline Electric Orange, MAC Booyah, and MAC Fashion Nomad are a bit lighter, less reddened. Then, shades like MAC Scarlet ibis and MAC Sail La Vie are slightly redder and appear a bit darker. See comparison swatches.

Flamingo ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light milky bright coral [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a pink-tinged coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a slight, underlying translucency that gave it a lighter look applied to the lips (not as heavy-looking as an opaque, creamy shade). This shade is a bit of a chameleon, and it will really go pinker/more coral depending on your natural lip color.  It lasted just over two and a half hours on me.  theBalm Strawbery is pinker, darker. NYX Stella is a bit pinker. MAC Blossom Culture is slightly darker. MAC Sunny Seoul is darker and pinker. MAC Cut-a-Caper is warmer. MAC Coral Bliss is lighter, less pink. MAC Betty Bright is brighter. Guerlain Rose Desir is warmer, less pink. Chanel Flirt is more muted. See comparison swatches.

MAC All About Orange Lipsticks (Part 1)

MAC Sushi Kiss Lipstick
MAC Sushi Kiss Lipstick

MAC Sushi Kiss Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone coral cream [with a satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, peach-orange with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had rich, opaque color, and the consistency was creamy, medium-weight, and lasted four hours on me. NARS Lodhi is darker but similar in tone. NARS Isola Bellla is lighter, less orange. MAC Style Surge is darker and pinker. Burberry Pink Apricot is more beige, less orange. See comparison swatches.

Sweet & Sour is described as a “soft peach cream [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a lightened, pink-tinted peach with a creamy, natural sheen. It is rich in color with full color coverage, and it was creamy, medium-weight, and lasted four and a half hours when I tested it earlier today. NARS Bolero is more matte and pinker. NARS Biscayne Park is warmer, more peach/orange. MAC Shy Girl is sheerer but similar. MAC Reel Sexy is pinker. MAC In a Heartbeat is slightly darker. MAC Ever Hip is pinker. Estee Lauder Naked is more matte, slightly pinker. Burberry Pink APricot is a bit darker, slightly browner. See comparison swatches.

Tangerine Dream is described as a “warm orange cream [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a brightened, yellow-orrange with a soft sheen. It’s mostly opaque, even though it’s a Lustre, but there is some translucency to the color overall. It wore three and a half hours on me, which is good as far as Lustres go. It was slightly drying, though. MAC Sheer Mandarin is a bit lighter, not as bright. MAC Sounds Like Noise is darker, more rorange. OCC Banjee is very similar–slightly yellower. See comparison swatches.

Maybelline Orange Edge ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color

Maybelline Orange Edge ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color

Maybelline Orange Edge ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark orange with strong red undertones and a luminous sheen. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is very similar–it doesn’t read quite as glossy but you don’t need both. MAC Scarlet Ibis is close in color but matte in finish. MAC Sail La Vie is mostly matte and a touch lighter. OCC Psycho is a bit more orange and matte. See comparison swatches.

Whew, boy! Orange Edge is incredibly pigmented in a single swipe; you’ll have no trouble getting full color coverage with this shade.  It is similar enough to Vibrant Mandarin (which is permanent) that if you can’t find this particular shade locally, I’d consider opting for the permanent shade instead.  The consistency was creamy with some slip and slickness, so it glided easily across the lips without tugging or pulling.  It also applied with even, smooth color coverage, and it felt comfortable to wear.  Orange Edge lasted six hours well on me and left a reddish stain for another hour.

As a note:  the packaging of this one was off; the bullet twisted up very, very slowly and wasn’t normal at all but not totally broken.

Maybelline Infra-Red ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color

Maybelline Infra-Red ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is an orange-toned red with a glossy, luminous finish. MAC Everyday Diva is lighter.MAC Ruffian Red has gold shimmer. MAC Red Racer is more neutral. MAC Must Be Red is less bright. MAC Cockney isn’t quite as opaque but is very close in color. Guerlain Genna is slightly more orange.  See comparison swatches.

It was rich in color with opaque color coverage. The consistency is lightly creamy with some slip, so it glided across lips easily and distribued even, opaque color well. Because of the creaminess, it leaves behind a slightly glossy finish.  Despite the slip, it still wears quite well, as Infra-Red lasted six hours on me and left behind a noticeable stain that lingered for another hour and a half.  I found the formula lightly hydrating during the time I wore it.  It has a lightly fruity scent but no discernible taste.

Illamasqua Posture Lipstick

Illamasqua Posture Lipstick
Illamasqua Posture Lipstick

Illamasqua Posture Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “cool mauve.” It’s a cool-toned, gray-tinted lavender with a matte finish. MAC Nocturnal Instincts is pinker, not as cool-toned/gray. MAC Fresh Amour is more opaque, cooler-toned. MAC Lavender Whip is pinker. OCC Digitalis is also pinker. See comparison swatches here.

The good news is that this wasn’t nearly as dry as ESP! It has mostly opaque color payoff, and the color applied fairly evenly and smoothly. The consistency of the formula is a bit dry and stiff, so it will tug a bit at the lip, but it doesn’t drag or catch to the point where application is really difficult or the resulting coverage is patchy. The drier texture does cling somewhat to lips, but it didn’t actually seem drying over the five and a half hours it lasted on my lips. I didn’t see this listed on Sephora’s website, so I’m not sure if it will be launching at Sephora with the rest of the Paranomal collection or not, but it is available on Illamasqua’s website.
