Street Rose (04)

Givenchy Street Rose (04) Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and never tugged on the lips. The texture was creamy with moderate slip, which made it incredibly comfortable to wear and hydrating over time. The color could have sat more flatteringly on the lips, as it had a tendency to gravitate toward my lip lines over the three hours it wore for.

The formula is supposed to have “vibrant, satin color” with “long-lasting wear” and “absolute comfort.” The best part about the formula is that it is very hydrating, but the downside is shorter wear time (three to five hours) and a more balm-like texture that slides around and can be more high-maintenance with deeper shades. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade (based on the six I tried) from semi-opaque to opaque coverage. There was a sweet, floral scent and subtle taste (sometimes I noticed it, other times I did not).

Dusty Pink (406)

Burberry Dusty Pink (406) Lip Velvet Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage, though it was a touch shy of being opaque, that applied evenly. The consistency glided on without tugging on my lips, but it seemed to “split” at my lip lines and look “cracked” (despite not being the type of lipstick that dries down completely!). This shade wore well for four hours and was non-drying.

The formula is described as a “bold, full coverage” lipstick with a “creamy, soft-matte finish” that is “non-drying” and “comfortable.” The lipstick formula has a very velvety consistency–waxier than a traditional cream, as it was thinner but never dragged on the lips–with good pigmentation that typically applied evenly. The one issue I experienced with most of the shades I tried (only six) was there was some color that had settled into my lip lines noticeably, whether shortly after applying or as the color wore. Most shades lasted four hours with some that lasted for six hours, and the formula was comfortable and non-drying.

Urban Decay Fuel Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a creamy finish paired with a light sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly, though there was a touch of color that gathered in my deeper lip lines. The lipstick was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and felt moisturizing over time. This shade wore well for four and a half hours on me.

Hot Lava

Maybelline Hot Lava Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is vibrant, medium orange-red with strong, warm undertones and fine red pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied decently, but it could have distributed color more evenly. The lipstick felt smooth, lightweight, and had a more waxy consistency that was really comfortable to apply but made it harder to build up coverage. The color wore well for five hours on me and was non-drying.

The Matte Metallics is the newest finish in the Color Sensational range, and it’s supposed to pigmented, metallic, matte, and have a “comfortable creamy” feel. The formula had a smooth, waxy feel to me–it glided across the lips with ease but was thinner and did not lay down as much color in a single layer. Most of the shades were semi-opaque with some being slightly sheerer or more pigmented, but they were typically buildable. The lipstick was comfortable to wear and lasted between three and five hours on me with some shades being lightly hydrating and others were non-drying. There was a subtle, sweet scent but was significantly subdued compared to other Maybelline lip products.

Maybelline White Gold Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, golden beige with warm, peachy undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which had even coverage on the lips but uneven texture–it seemed to bunch up i n places and appear almost crumbly at times. The texture was smooth, waxy, and it felt a lot more comfortable than it looked. This shade lasted for three hours on me with some color settling into lip lines over time, while the formula seemed to be neither drying nor hydrating.

Ionized Iris

MAC Ionized Iris Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a mix of finer pink shimmer and larger fuchsia sparkle. The consistency was fairly smooth–though I could feel some of the shimmer/sparkle in it as I glided it across my lips–and had some slip but did not feel slippery on the lips. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly onto my lips and sat well on them without getting into my lip lines. The color lasted well for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

This shade, along with six other new shades, will launch on June 22nd online and in stores/at counters.
