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). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Dahlia (10) (LE, $50.00) is cooler (95% similar).

OCC Black Dahlia, Hollywood, Memento, Technopagan Lip Tar/RTW

OCC Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a new way to get your Lip Tar delivered to you, as it is packaged in a clear tube with a doe-foot applicator, instead of a squeeze-tube that requires a lip brush. I figured I would try two shades that I found more challenging to apply, and then two shades that applied quite well to see if the doe-foot really helped for application/delivery of the product. From the four I tried, I don’t think that the doe-foot deposits too much in general, but Black Dahlia’s very liquid, almost runny formula makes it hard to apply, period–marginally easier than the squeeze-tube but a brush would still be better. I think they are more foolproof to apply with the doe-foot applicator.
