Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich violet.” It’s a brightened, magenta purple with warmer, pink tones but an overall cooler undertone and an ultra-matte finish. MAC Vogue en Violet (P, $23.00) is darker, warmer. NARS Silvia (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier. NARS Angela (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier. Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $21.00) is purpler. NARS Full Frontal (LE, $26.00) is lighter, less matte. MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $16.00) is purpler. MAC Seductive Intent (LE, $16.00) is less matte. MAC Night Blooming (LE, $16.00) is brighter, glossier. MAC Up the Amp (P, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Heroine (P, $16.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be a “long-wear, full-coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth matte finish.” It is also supposed to have ingredients in it for “added hydration.” It’s not a hydrating formula, and unless you often wear satin to matte finishes, it may not be precisely “comfortable” to you either. It’s a liquid formula that goes on glossy and dries down to a very flat, matte finish that doesn’t cling or settle into lip lines, but it does adhere and hug the lips. It’s slightly drying on me after four hours of wear and gets a little more drying over time. The wear time is excellent, easily reaching eight hours with little product having worn away. It was mostly opaque; I think you could possibly get a thin, second layer to get more pigmentation out of it, but you want to apply in thinner layers so it dries evenly. This was virtually smudge-, budge-, and kiss-proof when I tested it, but if you eat something oilier or combine it with lip balm, you may see slight color transfer.

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette
Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette ($54.00 for 0.73 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, lip gloss, eyeliner, and mascara. Five eyeshadows are 0.04 oz., and then one is a larger-sized eyeshadow at 0.07 oz. The gloss is full-sized, while the eyeliner is 0.03 oz. (compared to 0.04 oz. for full-sized). The mascara is travel-sized (which may make replacement difficult–UD has a travel-sized Supercurl, though I’m not sure it will fit). In order to accommodate for the depth of the gloss, the palette is quite thick, and overall, I wish it was lighter-weight. I also would have rather Urban Decay had included a double ended brush or two, rather than the gloss, because I think having brushes inside the palette protects them particularly well, whereas many of us have lip colors stashed in our makeup bags. The quality is good for the most part with the highlighter eyeshadow being quite powdery. I do think the color combination runs rather dark and feel like more contrasting shades would have provided for a more versatile palette.

Stag is a dark brown with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had so-so pigmentation in a single stroke and was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my lower lash line. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Sesso is a warm-toned, medium-dark pink-plum with lighter pink pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage, was mostly non-stickyand comfortable to wear for the three hours it lasted on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Dive is a sparkly, medium-dark, rosy copper with a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation and went on fairly smoothly; it wasn’t overly glittery or sparkly, so it didn’t feel chunky to the touch. It had some fall out during application but minimal fall out during wear. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Fix is a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned brown with a matte finish. The color payoff was good, and it was very blendable on the lid, though it was so soft that it was slightly powdery. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Resist is a warm, golden taupe with a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation and the texture was soft and fairly smooth. It wore well for eight hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Dare is a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was a really lovely shade to work with, as it was richly pigmented and had a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t powdery. It stayed on without fading for eight hours. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Stun is a rich, chocoalte brown with warm, yellowish undertones and chunkier micro-glitter and sparkle. The texture was a little dry to the touch,. and there was fall out during application as well as during wear due to the amount of sparkle in this shade. It had great color payoff, though. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

5050 is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, but it was rather powdery to work with, so it was messy to use during application but also prone to fading faster than other shades. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Naked on the Run Bronzer is a light-medium, yellow-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The powder was silky and soft, while the color payoff was true-to-pan, but it was easily blended on the skin for a lighter (or heavier) look, as desired. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Naked on the Run Blush is a brightened, light-medium pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. It was slightly powdery to work with, but it was nicely pigmented and blendable on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

MAC Carmine Rouge & Ultramarine Pink Lipglasses

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipglass
MAC Carmine Rouge Lipglass

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipglass ($30.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “clean true red.” It’s a brightened, neutral red with a creamy, glossy finish. It seems to almost look warm on me, which is often how neutral reds look on my coloring, so it may appear more neutral or even subtly cool-toned depending on your undertones. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a fairly smooth, even application. The texture is slightly thick, tacky, but holds on well and lasts for five hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is darker. Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is darker. Dior Vie d’Enfer (869) (P, $35.00) is warmer. Laura Mercier Poppy (P, $25.00) is warmer, brighter. MAC Viva Glam Rihanna (LE, $15.00) is shimmery, pinker. NARS Norma (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Ultramarine Pink Lipglass ($30.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone dirty violet.” It’s a bold, brightened magenta plum with cool undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It was mostly opaque and applied verly evenly. The consistency is on the thicker side with a noticeable amount of tackiness. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Crush (P, $19.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Girl About Town (LE, $15.00) is pinker, shimmery. Illamasqua Belladonna (P, $22.00) is slightly pinker. Buxom Berry Blast (P, $19.00) is lighter, sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Carmine Rouge & Light English Red Lipsticks

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipstick
MAC Carmine Rouge Lipstick

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “clean true red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, medium red with subtle, cool undertones (leans a little pink-ish) and a satin finish. There’s enough of a sheen that it doesn’t look fully matte to me, though it wears down after about an hour and a half into wear. The color lasted for five hours in total, and it was somewhat drying over time. The consistency was lightly creamy and didn’t drag when applied. Bite Beauty Fraise (P, $24.00) is more matte, darker. MAC Ruby Woo (LE) is more matte (lip pencil). MAC Damn Glamorous (LE, $16.00) is pinker. MAC Ruby (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Too Faced Melted Ruby (P, $21.00) is glossier. Chanel La Precieuse (317) (LE, $34.00) is similar. MAC Glam (DC, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Light English Red Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer beige red [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a light sheen and very, very soft gold shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage and lightened the natural color of my lips and brought out the pink tones to it, but if you have redder lips naturally, it may look more different applied. The consistency has a light slip and emollient quality to it, and it goes on easily without tugging on the lips. It seems to wear away after two hours of wear, and it was slightly drying after wearing it twice in a row. MAC Snapdragon (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Pink Flush (LE, $25.00) is cooler-toned, brighter. MAC Feed the Senses (LE, $16.00) is more muted. MAC Dreaminess (P, $22.00) is lighter, more opaque. MAC Vivid Imagination (LE, $16.00) is more opaque. Guerlain Rose Piquant (LE, $51.00) is glossier. Burberry Tulip Pink (P, $30.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink (LE, $23.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Burberry Oxblood & Gold Lip Mist

Burberry Oxblood No. 214 Lip Mist
Burberry Oxblood No. 214 Lip Mist

Burberry Oxblood No. 214 Lip Mist ($33.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish berry with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage–a lot more than the “subtle hint of color” described (though they allude to more buildable color, as they give a tip to apply “twice for stronger colour”), which may be a happy problem for some to have. It lasted for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating. This shade is also available in the permanent range, just in regular packaging. NARS Vera (P, $32.00) is cooler-toned. NARS Audrey (P, $32.00) is similar. YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Burberry Gold No. 217 Lip Mist ($33.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light, subtly warm-toned beige with faint gold shimmer and a glossy shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage; the base color gave my lips a lighter, more beige-hue with some shimmer. The color pulled into lip lines shortly after applying, and it worsened as it wore. The color only wore well for two and a half hours. It was comfortable to wear during that time, though. Tom Ford Beauty Solar Gold (LE, $49.00) is less glossy. MAC Altered Beige (LE, $16.00) is less glossy. Guerlain Sous Le Vent (P, $35.00) is less golden. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Burberry Oxblood & Gold Lip Glow Lipgloss

Burberry Burberry Winter Glow Lip Glow
Burberry Burberry Winter Glow Lip Glow

Burberry Oxblood No. 23 Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which seems in line with the brand’s description (“hint of colour”), and a lightweight, comfortable-to-wear feel on the lips. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was moderately hydrating. It could apply more evenly, though. This color is part of the permanent range, but it will have Burberry’s regular packaging (instead of gold). MAC Pleasant (LE, $20.00) is less glossy. MAC Hopelessly Devoted (LE, $20.00) is pinker. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $20.00) is redder. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is more opaque. MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Burberry Gold No. 25 Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a beige-tinted gloss with lots of muted gold and antique gold shimmer and larger gold sparkle. It adds a very slight bit of warmth to my natural lip color, but it’s really the amount of sparkle that is most noticeable. I couldn’t feel any of the sparkle or shimmer, which was nice, even as it wore away. It wore well for three hours on me and was hydrating over time. Dior Gold Rain (164) (LE, $29.50) is less shimmery. NARS Soleil d’Orient (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery. MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Maybelline Gleaming Gold (120) (LE) has finer shimmer. Bobbi Brown Bare Peach (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Pure Gold (LE, $24.00) is yellower. Bobbi Brown Candlelight (LE, $24.00) is similar. MAC Pure Sophistication (LE, $15.00) is yellower. Chanel French Toffee (83) (LE, $27.00) is less shimmery. MAC Soft Serenade (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Boundless Beige (P, $19.50) is lighter. Guerlain Gold Tchlack (P, $30.00) is less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Canary (P, $24.00) is yellower. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
