Kat Von D Lolita & Lolita II Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “chestnut rose.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with very subtle, warmer undertones and an ultra matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly, and it didn’t “crack” when I smiled. The formula was smooth, not too thin or too thick, and spread well across the lips. It was flexible enough to feel comfortable over the seven hours it lasted, though it was slightly drying after five hours of wear. Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Hot Chocolate (LE, $17.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Pepper (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC So Select (P, $17.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar).

Urban Decay Carnal, Broken, Manic, Hex, Crank Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Carnal Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “medium warm nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satiny sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that went on nicely and evenly. The lipstick was comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted. I found it just a bit moisturizing while worn. MAC Mocha (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar).

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a new formula from ColourPop that’s supposed to be “super intense” with “high impact metallic pearls” and a “non-drying formula” that “is extremely long-wearing” (but it is “not completely transfer resistant”). Of ColourPop’s liquid lipstick formulas, this had the most slip and least pigmentation (across all four shades)–more semi-opaque, though they were buildable. The consistency spreads well across the lips, but it could look more even; I think the darker coloring of the shades made some of the translucency less apparent. They dry down to a mostly transfer-proof finish, and they are flexible and comfortable to wear. I got between four and six hours of wear with these, and they seemed to break down easily with food compared to the Ultra Satins/Mattes. Two of the four shades were a little drying, while the other two were non-drying.

Guerlain Mauve Gloves, Lilac Belt, Plum-brella La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They are deliberately scented to smell like La Petite Robe Noire, which is a sweet, fruity and floral fragrance–the scent is noticeable both in the tube and applied, though I do not notice it after about about an hour or so of wear (if you are sensitive to scent, I would consider trying these in person or purchasing with the ability to return). There was a somewhat soapy, sweet taste (it contains Stevioside, used as a sweetener) at times, particularly if I ate/drank with the lipstick on.

Tarte Texas Toast & Swamp Family Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Texas Toast Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a light-medium consistency that was slightly mousse-like, not as thin as some of the Lip Paints have been. It had a smooth feel on the lips, but it slides around noticeably. The color lasted for four and a half hours on me with some color fading more strongly from the center of the mouth, and the formula was somewhat drying overall. Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Oblivion (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Too Faced Cool Girl (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Urban Decay Tantric, Lovelight, Ex-Girlfriend, Hitch Hike, Amulet Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Tantric Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “light nude-pink [with a Sheer finish].” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it applied unevenly and settled into lip lines from the get-go. The consistency was lightly creamy and balm-like, but I just couldn’t keep the color in place.
