Too Faced When In Doubt, Sorry Not Sorry, The New Black, Troublemaker La Matte Lipsticks

Too Faced When In Doubt La Matte Color Drenched Matte Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy beige with a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a drier, draggy texture that applied evenly but looked dry and highlighted the natural texture of the lips. The color started to gather in lip lines after a half hour, and by two hours of wear, the color itself looked uneven in places. It lasted for three hours in total and was moderately drying. Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is warmer (90% similar). Milani Adore (LE, $8.99) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Magic Wand (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Noble (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Child Star (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Yash (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Nude Embrace (P, $7.99) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Haze (LE, $24.00) is less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It had totally opaque pigmentation with a creamy, thinner texture that applied with smooth, even coverage. The finish was more matte than the majority of the range from the beginning (less satiny). On me, the color wore really well for over eight hours, but it was a little drying. Urban Decay Tilt (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Vermillion Vee (LE, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Clinique Poppy Pop (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar).

ColourPop Mess Around & TooLips Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Mess Around Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone grey beige.” It’s a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that was lightweight and comfortable to wear. There was a slight tackiness if I pressed my lips together, but it didn’t create uneven color. The color wore well for over seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Stone (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Chi (LE, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Styled in Sepia (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

Too Faced Maneater, Pitch Perfect, Rebel Heart La Matte Lipsticks

Too Faced Maneater La Matte Color Drenched Matte Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep, burgundy purple with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It had more slip than the other shades, and it wasn’t as thick, but it applied more noticeably uneven–though it felt better going on and when worn–as it was splotchy, clumpy, and gathered in lip lines within an hour of wear. It lasted for five hours and left a stain behind, and it feathered slightly on me. MAC Soulfully Rich (P, $18.00) is more muted, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Wet Suit (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Prince Noir (LE, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Christian Louboutin Beaute Eton Moi (P, $90.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar).

Surratt Beauty Glitterati Prismatique Lips
Surratt Beauty Glitterati Prismatique Lips

Surratt Beauty Glitterati Prismatique Lips ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cooler undertones and multi-colored pearl and violet sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lightly glossy finish. The color applied evenly and didn’t pull into lip lines. This shade lasted for two hours, while the glitter lasted a bit longer. I found the formula hydrating overall. Dior Fashion Night (881) (P, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Wham (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Surratt Beauty Jolie Laide Prismatique Lips ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a soft, light-medium rosy beige with pink and gold sparkle. This one had a more noticeable glittery feel when applied from the tube, though it didn’t seem to transfer that much glitter (compared to other shades). It had semi-sheer coverage (the effect is lightening on me), was comfortable to wear as it was hydrating, but it only lasted an hour. Surratt Beauty Paillettes (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Sous Le Vent (P, $35.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold Shimmer (7) (P, $26.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Tarte Bellini (LE, $16.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Smash Hit (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Burberry Gold No. 217 (LE, $33.00) is lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Surratt Beauty Lili Doree Prismatique Lips ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peachy orange with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had more of a pearly finish than glittery, so it was smoother in the tube and as it applied. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lightweight, emollient texture that applied evenly but settled into lip lines. It lasted for an hour and a half on me but was hydrating. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Synth (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Skinny Dip (P, $50.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bare Peach (23) (P, $50.00) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Frolic (P, $48.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dune (02) (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Demsey (P, $35.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Mystique (57) (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Surratt Beauty Paillettes Prismatique Lips ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light pink with warm undertones and fine pink pearl and larger gold micro-glitter. This was the “roughest” shade in terms of texture, as it appeared full of glitter, though it didn’t translate as overtly sparkly on the lips. It had very sheer coverage with moderate shimmer. The color lasted an hour, and while the formula was hydrating, the glitter migrated within two hours of wear. Surratt Beauty Jolie Laide (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold Shimmer (7) (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC I'm In (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Surratt Beauty Prismatique Lips ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is supposed to give “sheer, glistening shine” and color with a “moisturizing” formula that “glides on effortlessly.” The formula is sometimes pearly, sometimes even glittery, and though it isn’t gritty, I can certainly feel the distinctive texture of the sparkle/glitter as I apply the lipstick with some shades. They have a lot of slip, and they have very little wear time–one to two hours–when it comes to the “color” of them (they are supposed to be sheer, and they are; one doesn’t need every shade) and then the glitter slides around for another hour. Some of the glitter travels past the lip line. The formula is lightly hydrating, comfortable to wear, and definitely catches the light in a pretty way, but the wear time, traveling glitter, and streaky/settling color were all disappointing. I think these would have been better as glosses. They were designed to be worn alone or layered, though the emollient texture didn’t play well with all lipsticks (particularly anything in the satin or matte family). I didn’t notice any scent/taste.

ColourPop Lost & Prim Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Lost Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm-toned brown red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the more matte shades in the range–it dried down rather matte within a few minutes (if you want to speed up drying time, just press your lips together a few times and the sheen lessens). It had rich color payoff with a lightweight, thin texture that applied beautifully and was easy to use for fairly crisp edges (without a lip brush). The color wore well for over eight hours, but it was a little drying after five hours of wear. NARS Fire Down Below (P, $28.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop TGIF (LE, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Nosferatu (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). NARS VIP Red (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Avenue (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Hearts Aflame (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Sandra (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
