Benefit Lollibop Ultra Plush Lipgloss

Benefit Lollibop Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “hot pink.” Squeezed from the tube, it’s a creamy, medium-dark pink with cool undertones. On lips, it’s a barely-there wash of pink; it brightens my natural lip color while amplifying any pink tones to it, but it doesn’t dramatically alter the color. Urban Decay Flushed is slightly more pigmented and more neutral. Guerlain Cherry Pink is slightly pinker and has sparkle. Chanel Pink Pulsion is cooler-toned, more fuchsia. Dolce & Gabbana Candy is comparable–slightly more milky-looking in appearance.

Estee Lauder Demure Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a cool-toned, medium-dark fuchsia pink with a soft iridescent frost sheen. It has a frosted matte finish. NARS 413 BLKR is actually very similar–a smidgen darker but otherwise close both in color and finish. Illamasqua Atomic is also close in color and finish, as it has that frosted matte look and fuchsia hue.

It has a soft, luminous finish. Bobbi Brown Guava is slightly lighter. Chanel Pimpante is brighter, warmer. Cle de Peau R9 is pinker and shimmery. Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker.

MAC Persistent Peach is a touch lighter and has a creamier consistency. Chanel Mystery is very close in color but glossier. MAC Strange Potion is darker, more coral. Dior Pink Veil is pinker.

Chanel Attirance Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Attirance Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Attirance Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “coppery beige.” It’s a peach and copper-shimmered orange-brown. It’s orange without being loudmouth orange; it’s not neon or bold, as the orange is tempered by warm brown undertones. Bobbi Brown Canary is more golden, less color in its base. Chanel Calypso is redder, more opaque, and less shimmery. MAC Secret Identity is a bit more orange. NARS Hopi is browner.

Attirance has semi-opaque color coverage; there’s a lot of shimmer, while the base color adds warmth and gives lips a more orange appearance. I still saw some translucency to the color, so I wouldn’t call it opaque, though the formula is supposed to be “color-rich,” non-sticky, and have “high-shine.” Chanel nailed the glossiness; Attirance is incredibly high-shine and reflective. It has comfortable, long-wearing (five hours), and hydrating feel on the lips.

Benefit Kiss You Ultra Plush Lipgloss

Benefit Kiss You Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “clear fuchsia.” It looks like a creamy, magenta fuchsia when squeezed out of the tube, but on lips, it’s definitely more of a sheer fuchsia pink with blue undertones. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is shimmery and more fuchsia. Urban Decay Crush is similar in color but more opaque (so it appears bolder/brighter). Korres Crocus is purpler.
