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). Maybelline Smoking Red (P, $7.49) is less shimmery, warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Estee Lauder Brazen (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Guerlain Neon Pumps, Berry Beret, Cherry Cape La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain Neon Pumps (065) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage after two layers, so it seemed slightly sheerer than most of the shades I’ve tried in the range.

Urban Decay Oblivion, Trance, Backtalk, Rush, Sheer Rapture Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Oblivion Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “gray-taupe [with a Mega Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, rosy taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage, and though it was firmer and drier in the tube, it didn’t drag like some of the other Mega Mattes. It was thin, clingy, and somewhat drying while worn. This shade lasted for five hours on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Trap (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

Kat Von D Lolita & Lolita II Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “chestnut rose.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with very subtle, warmer undertones and an ultra matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly, and it didn’t “crack” when I smiled. The formula was smooth, not too thin or too thick, and spread well across the lips. It was flexible enough to feel comfortable over the seven hours it lasted, though it was slightly drying after five hours of wear. Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a new formula from ColourPop that’s supposed to be “super intense” with “high impact metallic pearls” and a “non-drying formula” that “is extremely long-wearing” (but it is “not completely transfer resistant”). Of ColourPop’s liquid lipstick formulas, this had the most slip and least pigmentation (across all four shades)–more semi-opaque, though they were buildable. The consistency spreads well across the lips, but it could look more even; I think the darker coloring of the shades made some of the translucency less apparent. They dry down to a mostly transfer-proof finish, and they are flexible and comfortable to wear. I got between four and six hours of wear with these, and they seemed to break down easily with food compared to the Ultra Satins/Mattes. Two of the four shades were a little drying, while the other two were non-drying.
