Dragon Red

Cle de Peau Dragon Red Lipstick ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, medium red with neutral undertones and a smooth sheen. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and comfortable to apply as it did not drag. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied evenly across the lips. The finish on this shade made my lips appear plumper and smoother without calling attention to my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating to wear.

The formula is supposed to have “ultra-vibrant, luminous HD color and rich lasting moisture” that has a “silk, semi-matte finish lasting for 8 hours.” Under “Key Benefits,” they repeat that it has a “long-lasting finish for up to 8 hours” and “delivers lasting moisture for up to 4 hours” (I swear, that seems like it’s switched–it would really make more sense for it to last for four hours but keep lips hydrated for longer than the color itself lasted). The consistency was lightweight, creamy with a more emollient feel as it applied that had a lightly tacky feel afterward. Color coverage varied from medium and buildable to mostly opaque with light to moderate shine. Some shades applied more smoothly across the lips and made my lips appear smoother and plumper but not all shades did so. The wear was four to six ours with some of the deeper, richer shades (like reds) wearing longer. I found the formula very hydrating and comfortable to wear. I did not notice any taste but they had a subtle, rosy scent.

Anastasia Soft Pink Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, and while the lipstick tugged on my lips as I applied it, the color went on evenly and smoothly. There was slight separation of the lipstick at my deeper lip lines, though, and the color migrated into them over time. On me, it lasted for five hours and was non-drying.

The formula is supposed to have “full-pigment” with a “smooth, ultra-matte finish.” Since the description was a little light, I also watched the brand’s video, where the formula is also supposed to be comfortable to apply and not settle in lip lines. The best aspects of the formula are how lightweight it felt on–almost like nothing on, so despite being more matte and denser, not heavy or clingy–and that most shades have been non-drying (so far).

There has been some transfer, and the finish is mostly matte but not “ultra-matte” (certainly not as flat or matte as their liquid lipsticks, as an example). Some shades have emphasized my lip lines from a texture standpoint or due to color settling into them, but it depended on the shade. The wear has ranged from four and a half hours to eight hours, and some of the richer shades can survive a moderate meal and definitely drinking coffee. I found the texture to be the drawback; the lipstick is incredibly firm and dense with little to creaminess, which resulted in an application that tugged and pulled on the lips. It was also the type of texture that caught on flakes, so regular exfoliation is key. There were a few shades that were creamier and thicker on the lips, which were more comfortable to apply, but the majority were quite firm. (They also did not get softer with use.)

I Desire

Hourglass I Desire Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with opaque color payoff in a single layer. The lipstick was smooth, lightweight, and creamy so it applied evenly across the lips and was comfortable to wear. It had good hold and stayed on well for almost six hours, while the formula was lightly hydrating while worn.

The formula is supposed to have “creamy, saturated, longwearing color with a satin finish.” It’s a light-medium thick formula that was typically opaque with a lightly creamy texture that glided on without tugging but did not slide around while worn. The majority of shades had a natural to satin finish, and they lasted anywhere from four to seven hours with light hydration. The best performing shades were light to dark while the lightest and deepest shades weren’t quite as consistent.

The lipstick can be purchased with the full packaging/applicator for $34 or as a refill-only for $22. The refill packaging is substantial enough that it is usable on its own, as there’s a detachable base that the refillable cap clicks onto (with an audible click), but they are very slim–and that’s not a surprise given they only contain 0.03 oz. making them one of the smaller lipsticks on the market. Slim lipsticks typically contain around 0.07 oz. of product and are usually smaller than the average standard lipstick tube (which tends to be between 0.10 and 0.12 oz.).

Lotus Flower

Cle de Peau Lotus Flower Lipstick ($65.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium coral with warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightweight texture that was creamy enough to glide on the lips but was not so slippery that it was a high-maintenance shade to wear. I felt like the formula made my lips appear slightly plumper and smoother, even though there was a touch of color in my deeper lip lines. This shade had fine shimmer, which wasn’t something most shades contained. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

The formula is supposed to have “ultra-vibrant, luminous HD color and rich lasting moisture” that has a “silk, semi-matte finish lasting for 8 hours.” Under “Key Benefits,” they repeat that it has a “long-lasting finish for up to 8 hours” and “delivers lasting moisture for up to 4 hours” (I swear, that seems like it’s switched–it would really make more sense for it to last for four hours but keep lips hydrated for longer than the color itself lasted).

Socialite

Coloured Raine Socialite Satin Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, light peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied incredibly evenly across the lips. The texture was creamy and never tugged when I applied it, and I was really impressed by the evenness in the finish–this type of color (with such a strong, white base) tends to look streaky on the lips. There was a bit of color that settled into my deeper lip lines but so much better than most shades I’ve tried in this color family. It lasted for four hours on me with continued settling over time, though the creamier formula allowed me to smooth out the color by rubbing my lips together. The formula felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Anastasia Orchid Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark magenta with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied with even coverage, despite the firmer, denser consistency tugging considerably on the lips. The formula felt thin on the lips without being clingy, so it adhered for hours–it was still going strong after six hours of wear–but was surprisingly comfortable and ultra-lightweight. It did not dry out my lips at all!

The formula is supposed to have “full-pigment” with a “smooth, ultra-matte finish.” Since the description was a little light, I also watched the brand’s video, where the formula is also supposed to be comfortable to apply and not settle in lip lines.
