Charlotte Tilbury Hel’s Bells, Tell Laura, Carina’s Love Hot Lips Lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury Hel’s Bells Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. It had light slip, so it didn’t cling or feel uncomfortable on, but it thinner than most lipsticks. This shade is a Matte Revolution formula, though it wasn’t truly matte to me. The color lasted for five hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Berry Bossy (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Venom (P, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Quelle Surprise (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar).

MAC x Good Luck Trolls Lipsticks

MAC Can’t Be Tamed Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer lime yellow [with a Cremesheen finish].” It is a semi-sheer, chartreuse with a natural sheen. It was somewhat uneven and a little streaky, while some color gathered into lip lines over time, though I’ll say it applied a lot better than I expected. This would work better over a lip liner or patted over another lipstick to layer and alter the color. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Fragmented (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Python Bag (012) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, caramel undertones and a fine copper and gld pearl. It had semi-sheer color payoff after two layers, and it could be semi-opaque after three layers, which is a little less than described but close. The texture was smooth, balm-like, and easy to apply to the lips. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Glamour Era (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Too Faced Sweet Maple (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Guerlain My First Lipstick, Pinketie, Black Perfecto La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain My First Lipstick (001) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light, warm pink with subtle shimmer and shine. It is sheer, and it stayed sheer, regardless of applying one, two, or three layers, so it isn’t like the majority of the range (and given the name, it’s not a surprise, but unfortunately, brands don’t usually distinguish one-off shades that deviate from the formula description, so it’s being held to the same standards as the rest of the line). It lasted for a mere hour before needing reapplication. The formula was slightly hydrating after wearing it three times in a row. Tom Ford Beauty Forbidden Pink (22) (P, $50.00) is darker, more pigmented, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Nippon (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC I'm In (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Only You (LE, $17.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Hug Me (P, $17.00) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). MAC Peach Blossom (P, $17.00) is more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Black Orchid & Velvet Orchid Lip Colors

Tom Ford Black Orchid Lip Color ($60.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark red-burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and fine ruby red pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on fairly evenly, but the darker color pulled into lip lines and looked almost blackened in the lines as a result. The consistency had more slip than most of Tom Ford’s lip colors, which gave it a soft sheen, but it also made it move around more, so it might be more prone to feathering for some (it didn’t for me, but that’s not something that happens to me often!). The color lasted for five hours and left a slight stain behind, while the formula was very lightly moisturizing. MAC Media (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Shame (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Brazen (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar).

MAC Runner (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Liquorice (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Midnight Merlot (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler (90% similar).
