ColourPop Tiny Chum Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a very creamy, light-medium thick consistency that spread evenly across the lips but seemed more prone to sinking into lip lines compared to other shades in this formula. I don’t think it was too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, but it was an area where it could have been better. The color wore well for seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Crème Conque (04)

Tom Ford Crème Conque (04) Soleil Lip Foil ($53.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm undertones and multi-colored, almost rainbow-like pearl. I think this is going to look a bit different from person to person due to the coverage level (medium, somewhat buildable), so the natural lip color came through and influenced the end result quite a bit.

The Soleil Lip Foil formula is described as having a “vibrant, reflective-foil finish” that goes on with “smooth, even application for brilliant, luxurious vibrancy.” The lipstick felt smooth, lightweight, and thin against the lips, but it didn’t drag during application and didn’t feel clingy during wear. It lasted for just over four hours and was lightly hydrating.

ColourPop Bijou Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had great pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and easily as the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin and spread across the lips nicely. I did notice that there was a bit of color that settled into my deeper lip line, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This shade lasted for eight hours and was just a touch drying after six hours of wear.

Tom Ford Private Life (01) Soleil Lip Foil ($53.00 for 0.10 oz.) is light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but opaque coverage wans’t possible.

The Soleil Lip Foil formula is described as having a “vibrant, reflective-foil finish” that goes on with “smooth, even application for brilliant, luxurious vibrancy.” The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and thinner with minimal slip, so I was surprised to find some of the color gathered in my lip lines after applying it. I found the formula to be lightly moisturizing over the four hours it lasted, though. I think this would work better layered over another lipstick or lip pencil.

Tarte Bestie Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, rosy pink with strong, warm brown udnertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on smoothly and evenly, though it looked a little streaky initially–but it seemed to self-level and dry down to a streak-free finish.

The Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint (whew! that’s a mouthful) is supposed to have full coverage, matte finish, be kiss-proof, and lasts “all day.” Most of their claims are accurate; it had good pigmentation, was matte, and didn’t transfer, though it only wore for five and a half hours, so it’s not the most long-wearing lipsticks I’ve come across (particularly when it comes to liquid lipstick formulas). It was lightly drying, and it had a softer, more natural feel on the lips that wasn’t as prone to cracking or weighing lips down.

Tom Ford Make Me (08) Lip Contour Duo ($53.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains a slim lip color with a twist-up “Lip Shaper,” where the lip color hides in the base of the component. The duo features a deeper, muted plum with warmer undertones and a lighter, cooler plum lip pencil (I don’t think they match that well, actually).

The Lip Shaper is designed for enhancing and defining the lips, and it can be used to shape or “create an ombre effect” to the lips, while the lip color is supposed to be full coverage. Sadly, I really like the lip color formula in the duo; it’s very creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear with four to six-hour wear time, but the Lip Shaper formulation left a lot to be desired. I struggled with using the Lip Shapers as they often broke on me, as they were quite brittle, and the majority were very dry, so they tugged and dragged on the lips. They also had bits of sparkle, which did not work well for defining the edge of the lips nor did it work out for filling in the lips.
