Spotlight Me

MAC Spotlight Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick was creamy with some slip but did not feel overly slippery on the lips, so it did not slide around or feel like a high maintenance product. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, though it was shy of being truly opaque on me. There was a smidgen of color that sat in my deeper lip lines but was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Chanel Rouge Memoire (224) Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cool undertones and fine, ruby red pearl. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t quite opaque, with a smooth, even application that did not settle into my lip lines and actually made my lips appear smoother and plumper. It had a very creamy, balm-like consistency that was quite emollient and glided across the lips effortlessly. The formula was comfortable and hydrating to wear over the five hours the color lasted. There was a faint stain left behind as well.

The formula is supposed to offer the “intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” and “comfort of a lip balm.” The consistency of this formula was incredibly soft and melted against the lips, so it was easy to over-apply (and subsequently, easy to run through the product!) with an emollient quality found in lip balms. In general, color coverage was semi-opaque to opaque, with wear coming in at three to five hours, depending on the shade. The formula was comfortable to wear and very hydrating both during and after wear. The downside was that these types of twist-up lipsticks (in the slim casing) tend to contain noticeably less than a standard bullet lipstick (0.10 to 0.12 oz. usually!) and the more pliant formula made it easy to reapply and run it back and forth more than necessary (for the coverage). There was a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though, with no discernible taste.

Chanel Rouge Esquisse (227) Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a smattering of very fine pearl. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a very smooth, creamy, and slippery consistency that glided on easily and was extremly comfortable to wear. The more slippery consistency showed very slight “lines” when I pressed my lips together, and I noticed a bit of color in my deeper lip lines. The shinier finish distracted from the settling, though. This shade wore well for three and a half hours and was moisturizing.

NARS Orgasm Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink base with warmer undertones and fine, gold pearl with a few larger, gold sparkles. It’s a new, permanent shade that’s part of the Satin Lipstick formula, which is described as a “lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color.” In particular, this shade was described as “sheer provocation” and as a “pink color with a translucent touch” — seemed like code for sheer.

I found the formula to be thin, emollient but not slippery–it applied without tugging on my lips but did not slide around on my lips, though there was a smidgen of color that gathered in my deeper lip lines on my bottom lip. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage. The lipstick lasted for three hours on my lips and seemed very lightly hydrating. There was no discernible taste or smell.

Baby Doll Against BS

Pretty Vulgar Baby Doll Against BS Bury Them with a Smile Matte Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–that applied evenly across the lips and did not drag or tug. The consistency was smooth, thin but not clingy, and comfortable to wear for the four hours this shade lasted on me, though there was some color that had sunk into my lip lines (both initially as well as later on during wear). The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

It’s supposed to have “full coverage” with a hydrating, “long-lasting” formula and an “ultimate matte finish.” I only purchased three shades (there are eight) to try, but based on those three, the formula has a smooth, velvety consistency that is thinner but not clingy. There was enough slip that they did not tug when applied directly to the lips, but they did not slide around while worn. There was a tendency for color to settle into my lip lines a bit, which was more noticeable with the lightest shade I tried. They lasted between four to six and a half hours and were non-drying. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Jouer Guava Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had more of a “matte” metallic finish. It was harder to dupe compared from the shades I purchased from Jouer recently, mostly due to the finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on decently, but it wasn’t completely even and needed a second layer for full coverage, though the texture was more emphasizing of the texture of my lips with a second coat (and already accentuated by the initial layer). The color lasted for five hours on me but was non-drying.

The formula is supposed to be “weightless” with “full coverage color” that “lasts all day.” It is the type of liquid lipstick that dries to a matte, transfer-proof finish. I find the formula varies from semi-opaque to opaque coverage with the more metallic shades often being more semi-opaque and buildable. The texture is thin but not watery, so they dry down a little faster than average, but I rarely feel like I don’t have enough time to apply or that the application is difficult. The wear ranges from five to eight hours, depending on the shade, and the formula is non-drying to slightly drying, depending on the shade. The formula has a strong, sweet scent–almost like caramel and vanilla to me.
