Bite Beauty Opal Creme Lipstick

Bite Beauty Opal Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as an “ultraviolet” with an “iridescent finish.” It’s a cool-toned, icy lavender with a pink-to-blue-violet sheen and a soft, frosted finish. I couldn’t think of a lot of dupes for this, and all of the ones I’ve seen were also limited edition! Dolce and Gabbana Ametista (LE, $33.00) is darker, more pigmented. NARS Tender Night (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Drive In & Zipper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Drive In Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0. 11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone bright magenta.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium magenta purple with cooler, pink undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but there was almost a veil of translucency there, yet the color went on evenly and smoothly for the most part. It dried down fairly quickly but to a very soft, lightweight texture that didn’t transfer or flake. This shade lasted well for eight hours and was slightly drying after six hours of wear. Colour Pop Lychee (P, $6.00) is darker. Anastasia Vintage (P, $20.00) is darker. Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $19.00) is darker. MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Heroine (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer, glossier. Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $22.00) is darker, less glossy. Bite Beauty #007 (LE, $36.00) is darker, less glossy, less shimmery.

Urban Decay Bad Blood, Temper, Tilt Matte Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay Bad Blood Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte deep red.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage (there was still a shadow of my lip freckle peeking through). The consistency was lightly creamy and applied easily without dragging on the lips. It hugged without feeling clingy, but it also ensured the color didn’t slip while on nor did I experience any feathering/bleeding (though neither are something I get frequently, for your reference). This shade lasted for nearly nine hours on me, and it felt a little drying after eight hours of wear. MAC Prolong (P, $18.00) is cooler, glossier. MAC Such Flare (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Russian Red (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Charmed, I’m Sure (LE, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Charlotte (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. Besame American Beauty 1945 (P, $22.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Stunner (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Salon Rouge (LE, $16.00) is more muted, cooler, glossier. Chanel La Desiree (327) (LE, $34.00) is cooler. MAC Frank-n-furter (LE, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Just a Bite (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler, glossier. NYX Chic Red (P, $4.00) is lighter, cooler. NARS Mascate (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler.

ColourPop Highball & Buds Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Highball Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0. 11 fl. oz.) is described as a “hot red-pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a matte finish. This one was richly pigmented but a little thicker with a tendency to streak. The slightly thicker texture was extremely unforgiving if you needed to touch-up or wanted to fix any mistakes, as it really gave the lips a wrinkled appearance as the layers fused together. It dried down quickly but had enough time to work the color across the lips. This shade stayed on well for over eight hours and started to feel drying after six hours of wear. It fades more evenly, and it’s hard to tell from far away as it also stains, so as the lipstick wears down, a stain is left behind instead. MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Urban Decay Menace (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, glossier. Colour Pop Mars (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Tats (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Good Kisser (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. MAC All Fired Up (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier.

Urban Decay 1993, Stark Naked, Blackmail Matte Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay 1993 Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “matte medium-brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with rosy undertones and an almost warm-taupe leaning. It had a natural finish, which is glossier than a true satin (to me)–the sheen was noticeable until an hour and a half into wear, and then it was more satiny. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully with smooth, even coverage that was comfortable to wear but didn’t slide around. It wore for eight hours and didn’t feel drying (I want to say it is a little hydrating, but more in the sense that my lips don’t feel worse for wearing it while it is not hydrating my lips more–maintaining their moisture-level). MAC Double Shot (P, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Tabla (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer, less glossy. Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) (P, $7.49) is lighter, glossier. Bite Beauty Marzipan (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Gustavo (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy. Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is lighter, cooler, less glossy.
