ColourPop Mr. Blonde & Jellies Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright true turquoise.” It’s a brightened, medium sky blue with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. It was mostly matte, but there was an almost vinyl-like sheen to it–and it took forever to dry down. Even when “dry” after a half hour, there was still a very light tack in places. This shade had intense pigmentation that went on smoothly and evenly, but it had a thicker consistency that “cracked” as soon as I smiled. It felt a bit clingier, and it was prone to flaking from the center of the mouth over time, though the majority of the color was intact after six hours. The formula was somewhat drying overall. NYX Blue Velvet (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar).

ColourPop Beeper & Clueless Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Beeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm mid-tone taupe.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. I could see this leaning more neutral on those with naturally pink or cool-toned complexions. It had good pigmentation that applied with smooth, even color without “cracking” or emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for seven hours on me and was lightly drying after four hours of wear. Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

Estee Lauder Covetous Nude, Furious, Neon Azalea, Pure Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Covetous Nude Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had full color coverage with a light-medium weight consistency that felt creamy applied, so it didn’t tug at the lips. The color seemed to “crack” as the color pulled away, possibly due to the slightly thicker, creamier texture. It wore for four hours on me, but the color settled into lip lines considerably. At least it wasn’t drying! MAC Pillow Talk (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Stark Naked (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Commanding, Desirous, Extrovert Pure Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Commanding Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark burgundy with subtle, cool berry undertones and a natural sheen. There seemed to be very, very fine pearl laced through the color. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation, but it had more slip than other shades in the range, which may have been why it applied rather unevenly and looked sheerer on. The color gathered in lip lines noticeably after two hours of wear and was neither hydrating nor drying. MAC Sin (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Runner (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Lingering Kiss (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar).
