Chanel Rouge Ingenue & Rouge Tentation Rouge Allure Lip Colours

Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, beige-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, luminous finish with a very fine pearl sheen. It had good color coverage, though the natural lip color will still peek through (so it’s not the full coverage promised). The color went on evenly but had a tendency to pull into some of my lip lines over time. The texture was thin, creamy, and comfortable to wear over a three hour period. MAC Highlights (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Café (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). YSL Le Nu (70) (P, $36.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever C601, C602, C603 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C601 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium mint green with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on somewhat evenly, but it did pull into lip lines, and there were a few patchy places. For the type of color it is, the application was still better than usual, but this needs a primer or lip liner underneath to help it apply better. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and felt hydrating over the four and a half hours it lasted. Colour Pop Charm (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Whatever (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever M402 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly without emphasizing the texture of my lips too much.

Make Up For Ever C103, C104, C105 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be long-wearing, “extremely pigmented,” and hydrating. It is available in two finishes–Cream and Matte, indicated by the C or M in the beginning of each shade’s name. The Cream formula is richly pigmented, lightly creamy without being too emollient or slippery, and go on smoothly and feel good while worn (wear ranges from four to eight hours, depending on the shade). The Matte formula is thinner and clings somewhat to lips, though it goes on nicely and doesn’t tug, and it doesn’t always look flattering on as it can emphasize imperfections on my lips but really depends on the shade, as some look great on. I found the Cream formula to be moderately hydrating, while the Matte formula was slightly to moderately drying. All shades had a slight, rosy scent to them, though I didn’t notice any taste.

NARS Consuming Red & Infatuated Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencils

NARS Consuming Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($26.00 for 0.086 oz.) is a deep red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage that applied with smooth, even color. The pencil felt smooth and velvety along the lips, and it was easy to maneuver around the edge of the lips as well as to fill in the color. The texture is thin, and if my lips are at all dry or flaky, I find the formula can highlight those imperfections noticeably, but if you exfoliate prior to applying, it should look much smoother. The color wore well for six hours, but it was somewhat drying after four and a half hours. NARS Amsterdam (P, $26.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam I (P, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Infatuated Red (LE, $25.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $28.00) is glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Avenue (P, $6.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M402 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Nosferatu (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Kiss Me Quick (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Deeply Adored (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (80% similar). MAC Studded Kiss (P, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
