Revlon Papaya ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine

Revlon Papaya ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a semi-opaque coral-orange with soft white and gold micro-shimmer and a high-shine glossy finish. MAC Star Quality came to mind, because of its vibrancy, but it’s very pink in comparison. MAC Whoops! is much darker. It’s a lot like Hourglass Nectar, which doesn’t have any shimmer and is a touch more opaque (but doesn’t apply as evenly). MAC Exxxhibitionist differs a lot in texture, but the color is just a bit lighter. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is less vibrant and slightly pinker. MAC Double Dare is redder.

Revlon Sunset Peach ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine

Revlon Sunset Peach ColorBurst Lipgloss Lip Shine ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a semi-sheer peach-orange gloss with golden peach shimmer. The color is fairly sheer, so it gives a browner, warmed-up look to my natural lip color along with a fair dosage of shimmer and glossy shine. MAC Natural Flare is more orange–this is more like how the shade would look like if it had been opaque. Burberry Cameo has a much more opaque peach base. Dior Apricot Cloche has more shimmer.

Guerlain Rose Piquant Rouge G Lipstick ($48.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a a soft yellow-toned pink with a soft, frosted finish and a fair amount of shine. It makes my lips look pinker and shinier. Dior Pinky Mauve is very similar, slightly yellower. Estee Lauder Mauve Mirage looks very close, just more opaque. Dior Pearly Pink is darker. Chanel Charme is also similar with more of a frosted finish than a glossy one.

Becca Valentina Sheer Tint Lip Colour

Launched with the Balearic Love Collection for the spring, Becca Valentina Sheer Tint Lip Colour ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “nude pink.” I have to disagree on the description–there’s nothing about this that says “nude.” It’s a medium petal pink with a subtle frosted finish and healthy shine. Guerlain Rose Ensoleille is a bit pinker. Guerlain Bloom of Rose is rosier, a little less warm-toned. Chanel Paradis is a touch less warm. Guerlain Cherry Blossom is warmer.
