NARS Do Not Disturb & Members Only Lip Covers

NARS Lip Cover ($28.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition formula that is supposed to have “rich and lustrous” color with shine. They are a liquid lipstick, but they are not the type that dry down to a fully flat, transfer-free finish. They stay emollient and can slide around, and they transfer a lot–but they are also pretty pigmented so despite color being left on coffee cups and the like, a lot of hangs around. They’re comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, but they wear no longer than four to five hours. There was no discernible scent or taste to the formula. I didn’t have issues with the color feathering or bleeding on me, but the formula definitely has the slip that may make it a possibility for those who tend to experience that with their lip products!

Too Faced Child Star & Cool Girl Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Too Faced Child Star Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte true nude.” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had didn’t fully dry down, though it wasn’t wet–it had a lightly tacky texture that didn’t lift color if I pressed lips together. It had good coverage, but the color really separated and pulled away from itself leaving behind “cracks.” This shade faded unevenly and was somewhat flaky towards the end of wear (four hours). The formula was drying. MAC Promise Me (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Midi (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Too Faced Drop Dead Red & Evil Twin Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Too Faced Drop Dead Red Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “matte deep mulberry.” It’s a dark, muted burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was thin and quick to dry down. It looked slightly “cracked” when I smiled, and the color came away in very small flakes (almost like powder) after three hours of wear, though the color was mostly intact for closer to five hours. The formula was drying for me. Kat Von D Damned (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Anita (P, $18.00) is glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Vampira (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
