Coral Gypsophila

Givenchy Coral Gypsophila Le Rouge ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a shiny, cream finish. It was richly pigmented with nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across the lips.

The Le Rouge formula is supposed to have “intense color” and a “semi-matte finish” in “one stroke.” I’ve been a fan of the Le Rouge formula for its high coverage, natural finish, and comfortable wear, and this summer’s limited edition shade was no exception. The lipstick was creamy, smooth, and lightweight with enough slip to glide on nicely but not so much that it slid around while worn. This shade wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Tarte Set Sail Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium, rosy plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture seemed slightly thinner and not quite as emollient as other shades, so I felt like it emphasized the texture of my lips a bit, though it was still comfortable to wear and felt lightly hydrating over time. It had full color coverage in a single swipe, and the lipstick applied evenly across the lips. On me, this lipstick wore well for five and a half hours.

The formula is supposed to be “long-wearing,” “full coverage,” and hydrating. The consistency has an incredibly smooth, creamy feel to it and has enough substance and thickness to it that it adheres well to the lips and usually doesn’t pull into lip lines. I felt like the formula felt slightly more emollient initially and “dried” a bit to more of a satin-to-cream finish after a few minutes (but not a true dry down, as it wasn’t transfer-resistant!). The majority of shades were very pigmented, easy to apply, comfortable to wear with light to moderate hydration over time, and lasted between four and seven hours on me. A few of the lightest and darkest shades weren’t as pigmented or were less flattering on the lips compared to more of the medium shades. There did not seem to be any added fragrance to it (smelled slightly waxy), and I didn’t notice any taste.

Kat Von D Dreamer Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, light-medium cyan blue with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It seemed to have a whiter base, which gave it a chalkier finish after it had dried down. It had good pigmentation, but it was not opaque in a single layer, so this was another shade that would benefit from a second layer of product (not normally something I find necessary with this formula!). For the type of color, it applied better than most, but there was visible streaking and “cracked” color when I smiled. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was non-drying.

Stripped

Anastasia Stripped Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a light-medium peach with a hint of rosy beige and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff that applied nicely to the lips–even, streak-free, and matte without accentuating the texture of my lips. The liquid listick dried down quickly but not too fast, so I was able to maneuver along the edges and tidy up any areas without worry. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours and was slightly drying after five hours of wear.

The Liquid Lipstick is supposed to be an “ultra-saturated” formula that gives opaque coverage in “one swipe” that “stays put for hours.” I think the formula has improved over time, as some of the initial shades I tried were more problematic, but a lot of the newer shades have applied more evenly, been more opaque, and haven’t been quite as drying. The majority of shades are semi-opaque to opaque in a single layer, dry down evenly, and stay on for at least six hours, if not well beyond eight hours. I personally find most shades to be lightly to moderately drying over time.

Tarte Rum Punch Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, rosy beige with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly across the lips. The formula felt creamy enough to glide on without tugging but wasn’t too thick nor did it slide around on the lips while worn. There was a smidgen of color that pulled into my deeper lip lines, but it wasn’t something I could notice at a normal viewing distance (only in the close-up photos). The lipstick stayed on well for four and a half hours and was moderately moisturizing.

Kat Von D Dagger Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark grayish blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and would benefit from a second layer of product to ensure smooth, even, and opaque coverage. The texture was thin, very fluid, and spreadable but some color slipped into my lip lines–it just did not seem to apply as evenly or as flatteringly as a lot of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks have for me. The color wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly drying after five hours of wear.
