Clinique Melon Pop Pop Lip Colour + Primer
Clinique Melon Pop Pop Lip Colour + Primer

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($18.00 for 0.13 oz.) is supposed to have a “weightless” feel with “bold, saturated colour” that is combined with a “smoothing primer” so it applies with a “modern-velvet finish” (which Clinique also describes as “demi-matte”) and hydrating, 8-hour wear. As you might expect with a Clinique product, the formula has no scent or taste, which is always a bonus. If I ignore a lot of the claims, it’s a fine lipstick, but color coverage is more semi-opaque to opaque, wear three to six hours, and a couple of shades weren’t smoothing. They do feel lightweight with a thin, lightly creamy consistency that slides over the lips without tugging, and they’re lightly hydrating while worn. The shimmery shades seem to apply less smoothly and are more prone to wear issues (pulling into lip lines, shorter wear).

Clinique Melon Pop Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($18.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “light, light creme peach.” It’s a light-medium, pink-peach with fine pearl and a natural finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, but the texture was thin enough that it emphasized lip lines, while the lighter color pulled into them even at initial application. The shimmer in it made it seem almost grainy when I was applying it, though it didn’t actually feel gritty once on. As the color wore away, the color further pulled into lip lines, so it didn’t wear away as evenly as I’d like. All told, it lasted for three and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery. NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker. YSL Peach Passion (13) (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, brighter, glossier. NARS Julie (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, cooler. Chanel Cheri (61) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Chanel Cheri (61) (P, $34.00) is lighter. MAC Real Redhead (LE, $16.00) is more muted. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker. Colour Pop Fiesta (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter. MAC Ever Hip (LE, $16.00) is glossier. MAC Coral Bliss (P, $16.00) is cooler. Burberry Devon Sunset (P, $30.00) is darker, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Clinique Poppy Pop Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($18.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone orange creme.” It’s a brightened, medium orange-red coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had fairly opaque coverage that went on evenly and smoothly without gathering into lip lines. This shade lasted for six hours on me and was hydrating while worn. Estee Lauder Fierce (P, $30.00) is more muted. Bite Beauty #003 (LE, $36.00) is brighter. Maybelline Rose Rush (735) (P, $7.49) is brighter. Tom Ford Beauty Adriano (LE, $32.00) is cooler. Tom Ford Beauty Diego (LE, $32.00) is warmer. Estee Lauder Carnal (P, $30.00) is brighter, glossier. MAC Excite (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Bobbi Brown Lady Ruba (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty True Coral (P, $50.00) is cooler. MAC True Red (LE, $16.00) is brighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Clinique Sweet Pop Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($18.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “bright, yellow pink creme.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff that went on fairly smoothly. It leans bluish in the tube, swatched, and applied, though if you swatch it next to a very strongly blue-based pink, it doesn’t look as cool-toned, but next to yellower pinks, it stands out, but it might be one of those shades that will lean warmer/cooler depending on your undertones and what you pair it with. It lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time. Marc Jacobs Beauty Jolly Molly (220) (P, $30.00) is lighter. Colour Pop Sweet-Thing (LE, $5.00) is lighter, brighter. Colour Pop Fetch (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. NARS Marisa (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter. Estee Lauder Powerful (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Flush (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter. YSL Fetish Pink (8) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Sundays in Silverlake Lippie Stix
ColourPop Sundays in Silverlake Lippie Stix

ColourPop Sundays in Silverlake Lippie Stix Set ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes six, limited edition shades for summer that go from peach to bright pink. The Lippie Stix formula is a twist-up lipstick that comes in a variety of finishes with most of the finishes designed to have richer coverage. Matte finishes are supposed to be: “full coverage” and “long-wearing” and “ultra-comfortable, while cream finishes are supposed to be “full coverage” with “an ultra creamy feel and look.” The satin finish is ddescribed as “full coverage” and “long-wearing” that has a “hydrating feel.” Lastly, the hyper-glossy finish is supposed to have “full coverage” that “melts” and leaves “tons of moisture” with a “glossy finish.” All of the Lippie Stix have a synthetic, vanilla-like scent that sometimes smells synthetic and leans waxy. I don’t notice the scent applied, and I don’t notice any taste. In general, most of the finishes apply without tugging on the lips, have good coverage, and wear at least four hours, but most aren’t hydrating, while the hyper-glossy finish is a little tacky in feel. A few of the really matte shades are drier and can tug, and they can get drying.

Ace is described as a “light warm pink [with a cream finish].” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a creamy finish with a light sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly, but it had a slightly thicker consistency that made it pull into lip lines noticeably, which worsened as the color wore on. For me, the color lasted four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating, but it kept getting into the lip lines on my bottom lip over time. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dusk (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dusk (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is lighter, less pigmented. YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is lighter, glossier. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is darker. YSL Lingerie Pink (7) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. YSL Lingerie Pink (7) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. YSL Frivolous Pink (19) (DC, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler, glossier. Bite Beauty Bouquet (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer. Too Faced Melted Peony (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. Too Faced Melted Peony (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer. Too Faced Melted Marshmallow (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pow (600) (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Soft Savour (LE, $16.00) is more muted. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $26.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Parker is described as a “mid-tone warm nude [with a matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s not really matte; there’s a definite sheen there that doesn’t go away for a few hours, though you could blot it away without lifting too much color off of the lips. It was opaque in coverage, but the product did seem to emphasize lip lines to a noticeable degree. On me, the color wore well for five hours, was lightly drying over time, and did separate into lip lines just slightly. Givenchy Brun Cachemire (104) (P, $36.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Bad Girl RiRi (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer. Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer. Too Faced Sweet Maple (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Fresh and Frisky (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented, glossier. MAC Fresh and Frisky (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented, glossier. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Mocha (P, $16.00) is darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Marion (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Chella is described as a “mid-tone bright peachy coral [with a cream finish].” It’s a brightened, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered well and lasted for five hours on me. It wasn’t drying or hydrating, but there was minor settling into lip lines after four hours of wear. The consistency is really creamy, so it glides on easily, but there is a slight tackiness to it that seems to prevent it from looking streaky. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy. NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty James (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is darker. NARS Juliette (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler. NARS Catherine (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Style Approved (LE, $22.00) is darker, warmer. Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is glossier. Sephora Collection Samba (LE, $12.50) is darker, brighter. Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is brighter. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Kimber (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer. bareMinerals Fall in Love (LE, $20.00) is more muted. Bite Beauty Heather (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler. Chanel Misia (418) (P, $36.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Thirsty is described as a “cool-toned berry pink [with a satin finish].” It’s a softened, medium-dark pink-plum with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was creamy enough not to tug but didn’t feel heavy or slide around. It wore for six hours and was slightly drying after four hours of wear, but it didn’t pull into lip lines. Chanel Fougueuse (138) (P, $34.00) is brighter, glossier. Urban Decay Turn On (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Yield to Love (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Givenchy Hibiscus Exclusif (302) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Chanel Rayonnante (145) (P, $34.00) is brighter. Colour Pop Sweet-Thing (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Sheer Ladyflower (P, $20.00) is darker, less pigmented, warmer. Estee Lauder Reckless (P, $30.00) is darker, brighter, glossier. MAC Nouvelle Vogue (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pasties is described as a “bright cool-toned magenta [with a hyper-glossy finish].” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia magenta with cool, blue undertones and a glossy finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly, despite having a thicker, more emollient texture. It has more weight to it than the other finishes, but it wasn’t drying at all (I wouldn’t call it hydrating, though!). It lasted for five hours and left behind a stain. There are a lot of dupes for this type of shade with very matte finishes, but there are still plenty of dupes that are satin or shinier. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia (LE, $7.49) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. Maybelline Hot Plum (P, $7.49) is darker, less glossy. Urban Decay Crush (LE, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer. NARS Michiyo (P, $32.00) is less glossy. MAC Lust Extract (LE, $17.00) is lighter. Too Faced Melted Fuchsia (P, $21.00) is brighter, less glossy. Givenchy Rose Perfecto (209) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter. Bite Beauty Violet (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. NARS Full Frontal (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more muted, less glossy. Urban Decay Anarchy (P, $22.00) is cooler, less glossy. Guerlain Fluo Stiletto (662) (LE, $37.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. Maybelline Orchid Ecstasy (730) (P, $7.49) is less pigmented, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Cougar is described as a “bright pinky-red [with a matte finish].” It’s a bold, brightened, medium-dark fuchsia-red with cool, pink undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented with just enough slip that it didn’t tug much at lips and didn’t catch on the lips’ imperfections. It wore for eight hours, but it started to feel drying after five hours of wear. Marc Jacobs Beauty Voila! (120) (P, $30.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is lighter, glossier. Bite Beauty Crianza (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter. Estee Lauder Tumultuous Pink (P, $30.00) is brighter.

Too Faced Melted Chihuahua Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Chihuahua Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with a hint of rose and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that covered really evenly and smoothly without pulling into lip lines. On m e, the color lasted for six hours, which is on the shorter side for the formula, but still a longer-wearing lip product. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler. Bite Beauty Marzipan (P, $28.00) is darker.

Too Faced Melted Frosting Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Frosting Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Frosting Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “bubblegum pink.” It’s a bright, light pink with neutral-towarm undertones and a soft shine. This shade had more of a satin finish than the glossier finish of most shades in the formula. It had mostly opaque coverage, but the lighter color made “lines” more apparent if you pressed your lips together. It had a thinner consistency, too, which I think helped it apply more smoothly than it might have with the typical consistency. It wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Bubblegum Bloom (965) (LE, $7.49) is lighter, less pigmented, cooler. Maybelline Hibiscus Pop (715) (P, $7.49) is darker. Maybelline Petal Pink (710) (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler. MAC A Novel Romance (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC To Savour (P, $23.00) is more muted. NYX Rose (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler, less glossy. MAC Dress to Impress (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted. Givenchy Rose Dahlia (210) (P, $36.00) is darker. Too Faced Melted Marshmallow (P, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Ladies Who Lunch (LE, $22.00) is darker. MAC Sweet Experience (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Be Fabulous (P, $22.00) is lighter, more muted. YSL Frivolous Pink (19) (DC, $34.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Rose Lily (LE, $16.00) is more muted, less pigmented. YSL Lingerie Pink (7) (P, $34.00) is more muted, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Melted Sugar Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “nude sand.” It’s a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it didn’t apply as smoothly or as evenly as the majority of this range. The wear was shorter, too, at five hours. It was a little drying after three hours. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is darker, more muted. MAC Crème d’Nude (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted. MAC Angel’s Kiss (LE, $16.00) is more muted. Kat Von D Agatha (P, $21.00) is cooler, less glossy. MAC Peach Beige (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Strip Poker (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. MAC Riot House (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC She’s a Peach (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy.

MAC What’s Haute? (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Melted Velvet Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “bordeaux.” It’s a deepened, medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a glossy sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but it at least applied evenly, which these deeper, less opaque reds often struggle with. It lasted for seven hours and left a stain behind, and it was a little drying after six hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Leonardo (LE, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler. MAC Dangerously Chic (P, $23.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Red Ego (P, $30.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $22.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
