Make Up For Ever M300, M301, M401 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M300 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark orange-red with strong, warm red undertones and a matte finish. The texture had a velvety feeling to it, so it glided on with ease and did not tug on the lips during application. However, it was a bit thin and clingy, so it wasn’t the most flattering finish on the lips and tended to accentuate lines and imperfections. I highly recommend exfoliating prior to applying this shade. It had good pigmentation that wore well for six hours, but the formula was a bit drying. Charlotte Tilbury Tell Laura (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Mimosa (LE, $24.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Barbecue (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Smashbox Pretty Social, Audition, Chai Be Legendary Lipsticks

Smashbox Pretty Social Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, light pink with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a glossy finish. This shade had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly but had a tendency to settle into lip lines immediately. The settling worsened over the four hours the color lasted, unfortunately. While it was lightly hydrating, it was one of the worst shades I tried in this formula due to the application and more slippery consistency of the lipstick itself. Urban Decay Heartless (P, $17.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Long Legged & Fabulous (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Crème Cup (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Vivid Imagination (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Pout (P, $7.99) is more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Tease Me (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Givenchy Rose Fantaisie (202) (P, $36.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Dreaminess (P, $23.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Real Doll (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever C503, C506, C600 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C503 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright pop of medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy finish with a light sheen. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy with noticeable slip, but applied fairly evenly overall–though not as smoothly as other shades in the Cream range. This shade wore well nearly five hours but had some color settled into lip lines, though the formula was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Courting Seduction (LE, $17.00) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $19.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). MAC Lured In (LE, $17.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC It’s a Strike Lipsticks

MAC Babes and Balls Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep burgundy [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep berry-plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with even color. The texture was lightly creamy, which made it glide on without tugging on the lips, but it didn’t slide around or feather on me while worn.
