Bobbi Brown Air Kiss & Bronzed Pink Tube Tints

Bobbi Brown Air Kiss Tube Tint ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink nude.” It’s a warm, light-medium peach with a hint of pink. There’s no shimmer in this one, just a jelly-ish consistency and look. On my lips, it’s mostly just something that adds shine and an illusion of fuller, smoother lips but not a lot of color–but note how it makes my lip freckle look faded, so there’s “coverage” but my natural lip color is so close that it doesn’t really look like it. The thicker consistency helped prevent this from settling into lip lines as many milky glosses do. Shades like Dior No Angel and Chanel Zephyr are similar in color but have shimmer. Shade slike MAC Summer Sweetheart, MAC Kiss Me Softly, and MAC Boy Bait are closer. See comparison swatches.

MAC By Request Lipsticks (2013 Edition)

MAC Flavour Lipstick is described as a “soft, muted peachy-pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink-coral with a subtle sheen but fairly creamy finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that applied well without tugging or dragging on the lips, and it delivered opaque color coverage. It lasted four and a half hours when I wore it, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Native is very similar. Revlon Pink Lemonade is sheerer.NARS Bolero is more matte. MAC Haute Altitude is darker. MAC Ever Hip is warmer. MAC Coral Bliss is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (The Bolds)

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each) has been revamped, reformulated, and relaunched with sixteen shades. This post is featuring the brighter and bolder shades. The revamped Urban Decay lip pencil formula is creamy and glides on easily; it doesn’t pull, tug, or drag across the lips. Lip liners are one of my least favorite products to swatch on lips, because they can be really rough across the lips and doing more than one or two of them back-to-back is usually a recipe for sore lips later on. I had no trouble applying nine of these back-to-back, and that’s primarily because they really do glide across the lips and feel waxy, but they still deposit good color payoff as they move across the lips. On their own, they wear like iron and last anywhere from four to eight hours. Underneath a lipstick, they add two to three hours of wear, bringing total wear time of a shade like Bang lipstick (over Bang Lip Pencil) to eight hours of good wear to eight hours of really good wear and another two of lingering wear before reapplication was necessary.
