Dior Diorama, Ever Dior, Cosmic Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) was recently reformulated and released in several shades, some familiar from past formulations (Dior seems to update their lip ranges every couple of years). The formula is supposed to be sheer, hydrating, glossy, and plumping using “hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain surrounding water … [so lips] appear full with lasting moisture.” I can’t really tell the difference between this formula and past ones in the range; it’s a semi-sheer to semi-opaque formula (from what shades I bought) with a very smooth, lightweight texture that is comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and shiny. The non-sticky texture and smooth, gel-like feel are the two highlights of the formula, as they’re just easy to wear and throw on. The formula wore between three and four hours for me. I didn’t notice any scent or taste. They come in three types–sparkling, watery, and iridescent–with varying levels of shimmer and color.

ColourPop Littlestitious & Molly Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Littlestitious Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel dusty pink.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy, thin consistency that applied evenly. The color wore well for six and a half hours without being drying. It’s a much lighter version of Dopey (which is too much darker to be considered a dupe, but I just wanted to point it out). Colour Pop Fame (LE, $5.00) is less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flynn (P, $35.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sugarcane (P, $26.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Double Tap, Goals, Snap Tarteist Glossy Lip Paints

Tarte Double Tap Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool mauve.” It’s a muted, medium-dark warm rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, spreadable texture that was very comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating. The only downside was some of the color gathered in lip lines, though I didn’t find it too noticeable from a normal viewing distance. Tarte Snap (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Deelight (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bianca & Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft mauve pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fully opaque color payoff with a thin, spreadable consistency that yielded even coverage. The liquid lipstick dried down to a fully matte finish, but it had a very textured appearance where the lines of the lips were emphasized–it made my lips look drier than they actually were. The color lasted for six hours and was somewhat drying. Colour Pop Littlestitious (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Clueless (LE, $6.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Squeeze (LE, $5.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Are & Be & Cheap Thrills Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Are & Be Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich mauve plum.” It’s a soft, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a thin, spreadable texture that went on evenly. It dried down to a flat, matte finish that did emphasize the texture of my lips somewhat. It lasted for seven hours and faded more noticeably from the center of the mouth for me. The formula was lightly drying. Colour Pop Panda (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Kat Von D Susperia (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P, $20.00) is brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
