Urban Decay Lovechild, Naked, Nooner Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses

Urban Decay Lovechild Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss
Urban Decay Lovechild Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

Here’s a look at the next three glosses from the new Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss range! You can see the first three here.  To recap, Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a new (and permanent) formula that’s supposed to be hydrating, comfortable to wear, high-gloss, and creamy. They have a light, creamy consistency that is non-sticky (but does gradually get a smidgen tacky after two to three hours of wear) and comfortable to wear. It’s hydrating, lasts between three and four hours, and is scented with sweet mint. The only downsides are that some glosses settle into lip lines or apply unevenly, but it depends on the shade.

Lovechild is described as a “medium pink.” It’s a medium pink with soft, blue undertones and a cream finish. This one settles into lip lines somewhat, and it doesn’t look even at all times–it’s prone to showing “lines” where you’ve pressed your lips together. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and it wore well for three hours on me. Maybelline Mauve Mystique (025) (P, $8.99) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Pink (P, $45.00) is less cool-toned. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is lighter. MAC Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Pagoda (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Chanel Insolence (P, $32.00) is less cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

Naked is described as a “nude-pink with pearly pink shift.” It’s a warm-toned, medium brown with rose tonts and pink and white micro-shimmer. It was semi-sheer on lips and added warmth and shimmer. It applied evenly and wore well for three and a half hours. Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is browner. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Dynasty at Dusk (LE, $20.00) is also similar. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Naked is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Nooner is described as a “light neutral nude.” It’s a light-medium, muted coral with warm undertones and a mostly creamy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and though it settled into lip lines just slightly, it did apply evenly otherwise. It lasted for three and a half hours on me. MAC Warm Embrace (P, $15.00) is more shimmery. MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Richer, Lusher (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Kiss Me Softly (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter, less pink. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Beso, Freestyle, Liar Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss
Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a new (and permanent) formula that’s launching this spring. The range has nine shades, and the formula is supposed to be hydrating, comfortable to wear, high-gloss, and creamy. They have a light, creamy consistency that spreads easily over lips and doesn’t feel tacky for the most part (it gets just a wee bit tacky towards the end of wear). The wear time is typically between three and four hours, depending on the shade. The formula is comfortable to wear and nicely hydrating. A few shades did not apply as evenly as I’d like, as a few settled into lip lines or looked uneven/streaky. Urban Decay touts that these are like a “luxe gloss” and lip balm in one, and it really does feel like the shinier, slightly thicker lip balms (the ones commonly found in tubes, versus the stick-type). There was no discernible taste, but it had a sweet mint scent to me.

Beso is described as a “deep pink-mauve.” It’s a muted pink-plum with neutral-to-cool undertones and a creamy finish. Applied, it had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage and goes on evenly, smoothly, and easily. It wore well for four hours on me. Giorgio Armani #524 (P, $29.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Flushed (P, $19.00) is slightly pinker. NARS Oasis (P, $25.00) is more shimmery. NARS Dolce Vita (P, $25.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches.

Freestyle is described as a “brown-nude with subtle micro-shimmer.” It’s a warm-toned, peachy-brown with peach and gold micro-shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage and a fair amount of micro-shimmer, which was never noticeable (no grit or texture from the shimmer), and it applied evenly for the most part. It wore well for three and a half hours. Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is very similar. MAC Hot Spell (LE, $15.00) is browner, more pigmented. MAC Deliciously Demure (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is sparklier. Bobbi Brown Beach (P, $24.00) See comparison swatches.

Liar is described as a “soft mauve pink.” It’s a medium, muted pink with subtle warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with some translucency that allowed the natural lip color to come through. It applied evenly overall and didn’t settle into lip lines too noticeably (especially not at a normal viewing distance). The gloss lasted for three hours. Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is very comparable. Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Pink (P, $45.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is lighter. MAC Razzledazzler (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Chanel Nakkar (P, $29.50) has a slight shimmer. See comparison swatches.

NARS Annees & Bimini Larger Than Life Lipglosses

NARS Annees Larger Than Life Lipgloss
NARS Annees Larger Than Life Lipgloss

NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) sees the introduction of two new and permanent shades to the range with the spring collection. For spring, both shades are described sheer (and are). Otherwise, the formula is a thick, tacky gloss that is longer-wearing.  I found both of these fairly sticky but very high-shine.  If you have thinner lips, you’ll love the very small, fine applicator brush for applying the gloss, and if you have fuller lips, it may be less of an upside. After wearing both shades, neither was hydrating nor drying.

Annees is described as a “sheer violet.” It’s a light-medium, pink-tinged lavender with a creamy finish. Applied, it has more of a milky consistency and look, so it doesn’t apply as evenly as one would like and does settle into lip lines. Due to the way it applies, it’s a color I’d apply over a more opaque lipstick or lip liner. It had semi-sheer color coverage. This shade lasted three and a half hours on me. It actually swatched more like Coeur Sucre but ends up looking more like International Velvet applied. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is warmer. MAC Petite Indulgence (LE, $20.00) is slightly darker. MAC Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Pagoda (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Chanel Bagatelle (P, $29.50) is also shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Bimini is described as a “sheer pink guava.” It’s a medium peachy-orange with fine shimmer. It applied evenly, easily, and had sheer coverage. It lasted for four hours on me, which is average wear, but this is a long-wearing formula, so I would have expected even better wear. MAC Good Lovin’ (LE, $15.00) is browner. MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is darker. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. MAC Pure Flattery (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Celestial Kiss (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

NARS Final Cut Satin Lip Pencils

NARS Final Cut Collection
NARS Final Cut Collection

NARS Final Cut Satin Lip Pencils ($25.00 for 0.07 oz. each) includes four limited edition shades that are exclusive to Nordstrom (in the U.S.; Holt Renfrew in Canada, Selfridges in the UK). If you like Satin Lip Pencils, I see no reason why you wouldn’t like the formula of these, with the exception of Stourhead, which will require significant prep work, patience, and reduced expectations. They’re nicely pigmented, fairly comfortable to wear, and have a good wear time. I wish they were as hydrating as they claim, but they’re not drying at least.  I wish that there was a bigger difference between Descanso and Torres del Paine, as they look surprisingly similar for shades included in a single collection.

Descanso is described as a “tea rose.” It’s a light-medium, rosy peach with a satin finish and warm undertones. It looks pinker on the lips than it does when swatched on the skin. The consistency was lightweight, creamy, and easy to apply. It had opaque color coverage, didn’t settle into lip lines, and was even. It lasted four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Chanel Interlude (P, $34.00) is slightly darker. NARS Dolce Vita (P, $25.00) is darker, more matte. NARS Montego Bay (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is slightly lighter, pinker. MAC Razzledazzler (LE, $16.00) is a touch warmer. Estee Lauder Naked (LE, $25.00) is more matte, lighter. Burberry Devon Sunset (P, $30.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches.

Stourhead is described as a “pale lavender pink.” It’s a pale, pink-tinted lavender with a satin finish and cool, blue undertones. The consistency wasn’t dry as I feared, and it felt lightweight, creamy, and seemed easy enough to apply, but it was difficult to apply evenly. It also settled into lip lines slightly from the initial application, but after an hour and a half of wear, it really migrated into all of my lip lines and looked a little like dry, cracked lips. It lasted two and a half hours on me. It had semi-opaque color coverage but was not as pigmented as the other three. Chanel Radieuse (217) (LE, $34.00) is warmer, darker. MAC Beauty (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less pink. MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Chanel Candeur (P, $34.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink (LE, $23.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Torres del Paine is described as a “peach coral.” It’s a light-medium peachy orange with a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy and applied evenly. The color wore well for four hours and was slightly moisturizing. And no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, this is strangely similar to Descanso; this shade being slightly warmer with no rosy tone to it. MAC Touche (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. MAC Gotta Dash! (P, $16.00) is very similar. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower (P, $32.00) is slightly lighter. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is more muted, matte. NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Villa Lante is described as a “cherry blossom pink.” It’s a cool-toned, medium pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. This shade had mostly opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly for the most part. It lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Goodbye Emmanuelle (LE, $26.00) is brighter, darker. MAC Steady Going (LE, $16.00) is more matte but very close in color. MAC Playtime (LE, $16.00) is brighter. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $22.00) is less blue-based. MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is very similar. MAC Pink Nouveau (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Naughty Saute (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil
NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mandarin red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a satin finish–just a soft sheen that will gradually turn matte as it wears on. MAC Tart & Trendy (LE, $16.00) is more muted, lighter. Milani Sweet Nectar (P, $5.49) is very similar. Maybelline Electric Orange (P, $7.49) is also very similar–perhaps a tiny bit darker. MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Sounds Like Noise (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less red-toned. MAC Neon Orange (LE, $16.00) is darker, more red-toned. See comparison swatches.

The pencil had a soft, creamy consistency when applied to the lips, where it actually felt almost slippery when I was applying it, but the lip color dried down slightly so it didn’t slip or slide on the lips. It was really pigmented and yielded full, opaque color coverage. The color wore well for almost six hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating during that time. I only wish NARS would upgrade their packaging by putting the formula into a twist-up pencil, rather than one you have to sharpen, as sharpening always leads to some waste. You can minimize the waste by putting the pencil into the freezer prior to sharpening, though, but I would appreciate the convenience of a twist-up pencil.

Maybelline Bare All, Blushing Beige, Nude Lust ColorSensational Lip Color

Maybelline Bare All (910) ColorSensational Lip Color
Maybelline Bare All (910) ColorSensational Lip Color

For spring, Maybelline’s added ten shades of “nude” that range from the very, very palest beige to muted mauves to deep plums. I greatly appreciate that Maybelline considered the spectrum of skin tones when they thought about flesh-colored lipsticks, because what’s “nude” for one skin tone isn’t going to be nude for everyone. I’m working my way through them, and these are the first three I tested (I’ve been testing them in numerical order, just in case you’re waiting for a particular shade to be reviewed). The consistency is creamy, lightly emollient with noticeable slip, and is lightly to moderately hydrating. The wear time depends on the shade (specified below).

Maybelline Bare All (910) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a very light beige with a pink tint and satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it had one of the more unforgiving applications of the shades released in this collection. It tended to catch and emphasize any dryness or imperfections on the lips, so it is imperative to exfoliating prior applyling to this. It is also difficult to keep it in place and looking even, as the color tended to bunch up on itself and leave lines. I patted a lot of the color into place with my fingertip, and you can see lines from my fingerprints! This shade wore well for three hours on me. MAC Pret-a-Pretty (LE, $16.00) is pinker. MAC Ruffian Naked (LE, $16.00) is slightly grayer. MAC Myth (P, $16.00) is similar. MAC Innocence Beware (LE, $16.00) is darker, pinker. MAC Fleshpot (P, $16.00) less pink. See comparison swatches.

Blushing Beige (915) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peach with a smidgen of rosiness to its tone and satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied to the lips, and like Bare All, it wasn’t the most forgiving of textures/finishes. The color wore well for three hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Blush Nude (P, $49.00) is pinker. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Innocence Beware (LE, $16.00) is slightly pinker. MAC Crème d’Nude (P, $16.00) is slightly warmer. Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Nude Lust (920) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peachy beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color with slight translucency. The texture was more forgiving on the lips, but I did have some issues with getting it to stay in place and look even, as the consistency is just thick enough with enough slip that can bunch up. Nude Lust lasted three and a half hours on me. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is similar. MAC Crème d’Nude (P, $16.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #111 (P, $32.00) is shimmery. Bobbi Brown Uber Beige (P, $24.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.
