Too Faced Country Star La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Country Star La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Country Star La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Country Star La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a warm-toned, medium peach with a glossy, luminous finish. MAC Enchanted One (LE, $16.00) is more matte. Chanel Satisfaction (89) (P, $34.00) is sheerer, lighter. YSL Tender Peach (26) (P, $34.00) is pinker, darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is similar. MAC Close Contact (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is darker, more matte, pinker. MAC Sweet & Sour (P, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The La Creme formula has a slightly thicker, more emollient consistency normally, but this particular shade seemed extra slippery–it moved around quite bit, so it was difficult to get really even, smooth-looking color. When I pressed my lips together, it would create “lines” and push the product around. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it was nicely hydrating while worn, but it was a high-maintenance lip color. It lasted for two and a half hours on me, and as it wore away, it did pull into lip lines somewhat. It’s a shame, as the color was quite the chameleon; I would stand in one room, and it would pink-tinged, and then in another, it would be peachy. It had a sweet, lemony scent but no discernible taste.

Too Faced Melted Berry, Melted Fig, Melted Marshmallow Liquified Lipsticks

Too Faced Melted Berry Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick
Too Faced Melted Berry Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Berry Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a brightened, dark, fuchsia-red with cool, blue undertones and a lightly glossed finish. It had insanely rich color payoff–a little goes quite a long way. The consistency is lightweight and very easy to apply for even coverage as it begins as a liquid. This shade lasted for eight hours well, and then a very long and lingering stain persisted for hours after. It was neither hydrating nor drying. Charlotte Tilbury Velvet Underground (P) is lighter. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is more matte, cooler-toned. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $51.00) is warmer. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Too Faced Melted Fig Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a purpled pink with subtle neutral-to-warm undertones and a glossy finish. It had fully opaque color coverage in a single pass, and it had a lightly glossy finish. This shade lasted for six and a half hours, and it left a stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Goddess of the Sea (LE, $16.00) is more matte, darker. MAC Romantically Inclined (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $16.00) is brighter, purpler. MAC Up the Amp (P, $16.00) is brighter, purpler. MAC Bust Out (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. MAC Flaunting It (LE, $18.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Too Faced Melted Marshmallow Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a softly glossed finish. It also had rich, intense color payoff like the other two shades. The consistency made it easy to apply and spread out the color for an even, smooth result. This shade wears for five and a half hours on me, but it settles slightly into lip lines after three hours of wear. It was neither hydrating nor drying to wear. MAC Sweet Experience (LE, $16.00) is more matte. YSL Frivolous Pink (19) (DC, $34.00) is similar. MAC Vivid Image (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Femme (P, $18.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Intime, Confident, Viva, & Aura Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks

Chanel Intime (93) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick
Chanel Intime (93) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick

Chanel Intime (93) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft pink.” It’s a light-medium, pink-beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had sheer color coverage–it primarily lightened my natural lip color. It doesn’t apply as evenly as I’d like, and on me, it’s only lightly moisturizing. The color lasts two hours on me, which is below average for lipstick, though this is a more emollient, higher slip formula, so it’s not a surprise. Revlon Demure (105) (P, $8.99) is more matte. Tom Ford Beauty Summer Fling (04) (LE, $49.00) is pinker, more pigmented. YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is more opaque, lighter. Too Faced Taffy (P, $21.00) is more pigmented, warmer. Chanel Melba (75) (LE, $34.00) is more beige. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is a touch lighter, less glossy. MAC Shy Shine (P, $16.00) is more pigmented, warmer, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Confident (94) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense rosewood.” It’s a medium, rosy brown with warm undertones and a soft shine. The color payoff was semi-sheer, so it did change the natural lip color but let a lot of it come through, so it may look different applied to you if you have more pigmented (or significantly different natural undertones) lips. The color lasted for two and a half hours and was lightly hydrating but applied well. Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is more opaque, lighter. Givenchy Rose d’Exception (206) (LE, $36.00) is slightly pinker, more opaque. MAC Shanghai Spice (LE, $16.00) is browner. Guerlain Jicky (P, $35.00) is browner. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Viva (95) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense fuchsia.” It’s a slightly brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a very faint shimmer and moderate shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage–more than most shades in this formula–and lasted for three and a half hours. It was lightly moisturizing while worn. My guess is “intense” is used to describe greater-than-normal pigmentation. MAC Good Taste (P, $22.00) is brighter. Bite Beauty Vigne (P, $24.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Incorrigible (08) (LE, $49.00) is brighter. MAC Quite the Thing! (LE, $17.00) is similar. MAC Heavenly Hybrid (LE, $16.00) is slightly more plum. Revlon Fuchsia Shock (P, $7.99) is a touch brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Aura (96) Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “plum.” It’s a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned plum with a luminous shine. It had sheer color coverage that applied fairly evenly. It seemed to pull into lip lines over time (noticed after an hour of wear) and lasted three hours on me. It was lightly hydrating. Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) (LE, $36.00) is more matte, more opaque. MAC Sweet Succulence (LE, $16.00) is darker. Chanel Ce Soir (P, $34.00) is warmer. Chanel Destinee (P, $34.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Rose Reve (189) & Songe (191) Glossimers

Chanel Rose Reve (189) Glossimer
Chanel Rose Reve (189) Glossimer

Chanel Rose Reve (189) Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “milky pink.” It’s a light, milky pink with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it had a high-shine, glossy finish. The thicker consistency of the gloss made it less prone to settling into lip lines, though it did just slightly, but for this type of gloss, it performed better than expected. It had a mostly non-sticky texture until after three hours of wear, after which it developed a slight tackiness. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly hydrating. NARS Turkish Delight (P, $26.00) is lighter. Chanel Rosace (87) (LE, $27.00) is shimmery. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter, shimmery. NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is darker. Chanel Allegorie (LE, $29.50) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Songe (191) Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as an “iridescent pearl.” It’s a shimmer-ladened clear gloss with fine shimmer that shifts from fuchsia pink to murky purple. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was primarily in the form of shimmer, but it is lightly tinted pink from what I can tell. It looks more complex in person than it does in photos, but it didn’t look as complex on as it did in the tube (the duochrome doesn’t come through nearly as strongly). This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating. Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) doesn’t have a true duochrome but looks similar applied with its icy shimmer. Bobbi Brown Firefly (P, $24.00) is less murky but looks similar applied. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tints

MAC Blushing Berry Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint
MAC Blushing Berry Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is supposed to be a formula that uses “PH pigments that work with body’s natural temperature to give you a fresh color that yours alone.” The formula is described as “lightweight,” “moisturizing,” and “lipgloss with a tint.” They are click-type glosses, so you twist and gloss is dispensed over a brush-type applicator. I struggled with these quite a bit last year when they initially released (these have all been out before). I feel like the formula has changed, as these seemed to stain/darken a lot less. I waited about forty minutes before taking photos for each gloss but they really didn’t change color once applied. They just seemed lighter overall.

When I wore these, the texture seemed medium-thick in consistency, gets quite tacky after about thirty seconds, and I still had some issues with the color feathering outside my natural lip line with the darker shades. These also fade poorly, as the color from the center disappears and leaves a noticeable “ring” of color. There is also an off-taste–like a lemon-y chemical taste–though it has a sweet vanilla scent. This formula is still a miss for me, unfortunately.

Blushing Berry is described as a “mid-tone cool red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark pinky-red with cool undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied unevenly–it just looked splotchy once on. This shade wore well for four hours and left a very subtle stain behind. It wore fairly well for four hours, and after five, there was uneven fading and a splotchy ring of color left behind. MAC Viva Glam Rihanna (LE, $15.00 is more shimmery. MAC Love Alert (LE, $20.00) is more sparkly. Chanel Emoi (P, $32.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bubblegum is described as a “soft warm pink.” It’s a light, milky pink with warm, yellow undertones. It was semi-sheer applied to lips. The milkiness of the color made it harder to get an even application, as it would show “lines” if you pressed your lips together and tended to gather in the lip lines. This shade wore well for four hours on me. MAC Bijou (LE, $15.00) is more opaque. NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is similar. NARS Turkish Delight (P, $26.00) is lighter. Chanel Murmure (179) (P, $29.50) is sheerer. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter. NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is more opaque. MAC Angel (LE, $15.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Glorious Intent is described as a “warm plum.” It’s a medium, raspberry pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy shine. It was slightly splotch applied and had semi-sheer color payoff. It wore well for almost five hours before it started to fade from the center and, unfortunately, left that dreaded ring of color along the outer area of the lip. There was feathering that appeared after an hour and a half of wear. Sisley Paris Berry (5) (P, $50.00) is less glossy. NARS Quito (P, $26.00) is similar. Chanel Tocade (182) (P, $29.50) is darker. MAC Fashion Perk (P, $22.00) is more muted. Milani Berry Tempting (05) (P, $5.49) is darker. MAC Colour Saturation (LE, $20.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Gwi-yo-mi is described as a “mid-tone raspberry.” It’s a medium, slightly muted, pink with subtle cool undertones. Applied against my skin tone, it almost turns warm-toned. It had semi-sheer color coverage, but this one applied more evenly compared to the others. The color lasted for almost four hours, but it didn’t feather as quickly as some of the other shades. Chanel Baie Rose (89) (LE, $27.00) is lighter. Revlon Pink Pop (P, $7.99) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Simply Wow is described as a “mid-tone cool mauve.” It’s a pinky-mauve with cool, blue undertones. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which didn’t apply too evenly–it settled and gathered into lip lines. This shade lasted for just over four hours but there was feathering visible after four hours with a very faint stain along the edges of the lips for another hour. NARS Angelika (P, $26.00) is lighter. MAC Fearless (LE, $20.00) is warmer. Milani Pink Lady (07) (P, $5.49) is lighter. L’Oreal Florid Pink (LE, $7.99) is less glossy, lighter. MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipsticks

MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipsticks
MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipsticks

There are six shades of MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) in the upcoming Moody Blooms collection. The formula has a light-medium weight to it, is quite slippery with some hydration. Some shades are more pigmented than others, and the coverage can be very smooth and glossy or more splotchy with darker shades.

Lust Extract is described as an “electric violet.” It’s a brightened, fuchsia magenta with a glossy sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it had a very creamy, slippery texture that glided on easily but doesn’t quite apply evenly. There was a time when this kind of color was harder to find, but it’s very prevalent now, so you may have something similar in your stash. This shade wore well on for three and a half hours and left a slight stain behind. Givenchy Rose Perfecto (209) (P, $36.00) is more opaque, a touch less blue-based. MAC Kelly Yum-Yum (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Happy-Go-Lucky (LE, $16.00) is brighter, lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Rush (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Bold Spring (P, $22.00) is a touch lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Gossip (140) (LE, $30.00) is more matte. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl (LE, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Moody Bloom is described as a “bronze plum.” It’s a muted, warm-toned plum with hints of brown and bronze micro-shimmer. I think this is a color that’s going to look a little different on everyone, as it is semi-opaque with noticeable translucency. It wore well for four hours on me, and the consistency on this one was less slippery compared to Lust Extract. Tom Ford Beauty Bittersweet (03) (LE, $49.00) Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $25.00) Chanel Synopsis (P, $34.00) MAC One of a Kind (LE, $16.00) MAC Oh, Oh, Oh (LE, $16.00) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Pheromonal is described as a “dark blue pink.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned pink with a luminous finish. There was very nearly opaque color coverage. It was easy to apply, sat well on the lips, and lasted for four hours. Givenchy Hibiscus Exclusif (302) (P, $36.00) is warmer, lighter. Chanel L’Amoureuse (47) (P, $34.00) is more muted, darker. MAC Good Taste (P, $22.00) is brighter, cooler-toned. Bite Beauty Vigne (P, $24.00) is slightly lighter. MAC Heavenly Hybrid (LE, $16.00) is a touch darker. Chanel Fougueuse (138) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #505 (LE, $32.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Phosphorescent is described as a “electric pink coral.” It’s a medium-dark, slightly muted, coral-pink with warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a creamy, glide-on consistency. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, and the color covered the lip evenly and smoothly with a good, glide-on texture. It wore well for three and a half hours. Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is warmer. Revlon Snow Peach (LE, $7.99) is lighter, warmer. MAC Be a Lady (P, $22.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Paradiso (07) (LE, $49.00) is warmer, brighter. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (171) (LE, $35.00) is brighter. YSL Rose Neillia (33) (P, $34.00) is warmer, lighter. MAC Love Beam (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony (P, $24.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Quite the Thing! is described as a “deep blue plum.” It’s a medium-dark, muted fuchsia with brighter fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and it applied fairly evenly and smoothly. The color wore well for four hours on me. MAC Heavenly Hybrid (LE, $16.00) Revlon Fuchsia Shock (P, $7.99) Revlon Berry Couture (P, $7.99) Guerlain Extrait de Rose (P, $35.00) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Venomous Violet is described as a “deep berry.” It’s a dark, subtly warm-toned burgundy with a glossy finish. It had a lot of slip, so it applied unevenly and did settle into lip lines. It was semi-sheer, which seemed to emphasize the poorer application. MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $16.00) is more matte, more opaque. NARS Vendanges (P, $26.00) is lighter. MAC Approaching Storm (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Dramatic Encounter (LE, $16.00) is darker, more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
