Kat Von D Santa Sangre & Nosferatu Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Santa Sangre Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “poison apple.” It’s a brightened, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture dried down in about thirty seconds and didn’t remain tacky for long. On me, the color lasted for eight hours with little fading, and it started to feel drying after six hours of wear. NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is lighter, cooler. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is darker, glossier. NARS Rita (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Marc Jacobs Beauty Rei of Light (212) (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer. Urban Decay Temper (P, $22.00) is lighter. Maybelline Siren in Scarlet (P, $7.99) is lighter, cooler. Bite Beauty Candied Maple (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. NARS Golshan (P, $25.00) is glossier. Make Up For Ever #44 (P, $19.00) is glossier. Bite Beauty Braised Maple (LE, $24.00) is less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Shameless Violet, Stronger, Unattainable Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new formula that features “rich saturated color” with a matte finish that is “luxuriously comfortable.” I bought three to try out the formula, and this post features those three. The formula is comfortable to wear with a light-medium weight consistency that is creamy and smooth with good pigmentation, though some shades are more pigmented than others. They’re more semi-matte to satin with none of the three I tried having a really flat, matte finish (like a liquid lipstick), so keep that in mind on whether it aligns with your preference for mattes. All three shades were easy to apply, comfortable to wear, and long-wearing. They reminded me of formulas like MAC’s newer Mattes, Urban Decay Matte Revolution, and NARS Audacious.

MAC Obi Orange, Tokyo Tizzy Little Buddha Cremesheen Pearl Lipsticks

MAC Obi Orange Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense clean reddish orange.” It’s a muted, medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and soft gold and pink pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly for the most part, but it was a little streaky up-close and tended to pull into lip lines after two hours of wear, though it lasted for closer to four in total. It wasn’t drying, but it wasn’t hydrating. MAC Tokyo Tizzy (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less glossy. Guerlain Gipsy (P, $51.00) is darker, glossier. Marc Jacobs Beauty All the Way (122) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is lighter. Chanel Misia (418) (P, $36.00) is lighter, more muted.

Kat Von D Requiem & Ayesha Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Requiem Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft lilac.” It’s a softened, light-medium pinky lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation (there’s a very faint shadow of my lip freckle peeking through). The drying time on this shade was more in line with the rest of the range, so you’ll want to avoid pressing your lips together for about two minutes or so to maintain your smooth application. This shade lasted for seven hours on me with some fading becoming visible after five hours, and it was a little drying after six hours. MAC Dress it Up (P, $18.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Snob (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Lavender Whip (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, glossier. MAC Snob (P, $16.00) is darker. Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler, lower quality. NARS Stourhead (LE, $25.00) is lighter. NYX Rose (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter. NYX Playdate (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier. Colour Pop Brills (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler, glossier. Colour Pop Seesaw (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter. Maybelline Blushing Pout (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
