Make Up For Ever M202, M203, M204 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M202 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium magenta pink with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that didn’t tug, but it seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips and did not apply as evenly as it should have (it’s not as obvious, since the color is bright). It lasted for six hours but was moderately drying on me. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Smashbox Talk to Me (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Whipped Blush (LE, $14.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Tickler (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora African Violet (LE, $14.00) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC No Interruptions, Soft Hint, Designer Blue Lipsticks

MAC No Interruptions Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold with a metallic shimmer-sheen finish. It performed more like a Lustre than a Frost–it was sheer, though it packed plenty of shimmer on the lips and lasted a mere two hours on me. It was neither drying nor hydrating, which given the rest, is really a positive point. I think it is absolutely workable on its own, as it just adds a more frosted finish to your natural lip color, but it would also work layered over other lip products. MAC Liquid Lurex (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Spoiled Fabulous (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Tanarama (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Live Long and Prosper (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Playland (LE, $17.00) is more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Yellow It-stick (603) (LE, $37.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Shiseido Bloodstone, Rose Crush, Red Queen Rouge Rouge Lipstick

Shiseido Bloodstone (RD503) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and fine, ruby red pearl. It had rich, opaque color payoff that applied beautifully–it yielded even, smooth coverage that didn’t emphasize lip lines. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and comfortable to apply and to wear. This shade wore well for seven hours on me, left behind a stain, and was moisturizing. NARS Shirley (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Dubonnet (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). YSL Black Red (71) (LE, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Velvet (P, $21.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Red Velvet (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Smashbox Mauve, Safe Word, Pinch Me Be Legendary Matte Lipsticks

Smashbox Mauve Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a heavier consistency that was more cream-like than velvety, and it definitely was not matte. The texture caught on the natural texture of my lips, and the color pulled into lip lines over the four hours it lasted. It was neither drying nor hydrating, but it would streak anytime I pressed my lips together. MAC Please Me (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $17.00) is more muted (90% similar). Colour Pop 1st Base (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is brighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Heartless (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Criminal (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Virgin Rose (P, $50.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sorbet (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Lotus (P, $24.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
