Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “spiced brown.” It’s a subdued, rosy pink with a natural sheen. There’s none of the brown that you’d expect to see in “spiced brown,” but I would say that there’s a neutral element, like a beige or brown, that darkens and mutes the rosy color overall. Guerlain Ballade is redder, less pink, shimmery. Revlon Pink Truffle is less pink and more translucent. Bobbi Brown Nude Rose is lighter. MAC Glamourdaze is redder. MAC Offshoot is less pink, darker.

Urban Decay Obsessed Lip Junkie

Urban Decay Obsessed Lip Junkie ($19.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy baby pink.” It looks like a brightened, blue-based bubblegum pink in the tube and when you squeeze it out, but on lips, it is more subdued–more of a milky, light-medium pink with subtle blue undertones. MAC Going Casual is a bit cooler-toned. NARS International Velvet is very similar. MAC Pagoda is a touch cooler-toned and has shimmer. Tom Ford Sugar Pink is warmer.

Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick

Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “punch of pink.” It looks like a fuchsia pink in the tube, but it’s much tamer swatched and applied. It’s a lightly cool-toned, medium pink with iridescent shimmer. On my lips, it brightened and added some cool-toned pink coloring. Guerlain Rose Ensoleille looks similar on but is a bit warmer overall. Guerlain Rose Piquant is cooler-toned. The shimmer was reminiscent of Revlon cupcake, which is more lilac and pigmented.
