Maybelline Touchable Taupe, Stormy Sahara, Untainted Spice, Espresso Exposed ColorSensational Lip Colors

Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) ColorSensational Lip Color
Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) 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.  Here are the last four from the new set of shades!  My favorite in this set was Untainted Spice.

Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is medium-dark, muted brown with hints of rose and beige and a luminous finish. It had full, opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly and smoothly. It wore well for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating during that time. MAC Bad Girl RiRi (LE, $16.00) is pinker and more matte. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is warmer, more matte. MAC Mocha (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Double Shot (P, $16.00) is darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Marion (P, $18.00) is similar in color but matte. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude (P, $24.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Stormy Sahara (945) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is medium, muted orange with a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and while the texture was creamy and comfortable to wear, it did streak a little. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $22.00) is lighter. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower (P, $32.00) is slightly warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Abandon (P, $48.00) is browner. NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is similar. MAC Posh Tone (P, $22.00) is also similar. MAC Delectable (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Cozy Up (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Untainted Spice (950) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, brownish-plum with a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque pigmentation when applied to the lips. The consistency was very creamy and emollient, and it applied smoothly to the lips without streaking or settling into lip lines. This shade wore well for almost five hours and was somewhat hydrating when worn. Chanel Farouche (122) (P, $34.00) is more matte. MAC Glamourdaze (LE, $16.00) is more plum. Chanel Bel Ami (P, $34.00) is less brown. Chanel Baroque (LE, $34.00) is more matte. Chanel Imperial (DC, $32.00) is warmer. MAC Sheer Plum (P, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Espresso Exposed (955) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a cool-toned, reddish-burgundy with a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it applied very unevenly. It looked streaky on, possibly due to how creamy/emollient the consistency was. The color lasted six hours and left behind a stain, and it was somewhat hydrating during that time. I had some feathering along the upper lip lines, though, which is highly unusual for me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $18.00) is metallic. Urban Decay Shame (P, $22.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Maybelline Maple Kiss, Truffle Tease, Sin-a-mon ColorSensational Lip Color

Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) ColorSensational Lip Color
Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) 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.  This is the next set of three that I’ve finished testing, and my favorite from these three is Maple Kiss, as it applies really nicely and wears well.  The other two are more emollient, so they slip more and do not apply quite as evenly.

Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, coppery brown with a satin finish and warm undertones. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy and glided on evenly and smoothly. It was very forgiving on lips and made them look smoother than they actually were. The color wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Too Faced Sweet Maple (P, $21.00) is pinker, lesls brown. Givenchy Brun Cachemire (104) (P, $36.00) is lighter. MAC Mocha (LE, $16.00) is less warm-toned, matte. Maybelline Mochachino (P, $7.49) is warmer, more shimmery. MAC Sheer Plum (P, $16.00) See comparison swatches.

Truffle Tease (930) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-beige with subtle warm undertones and an almost gray-cast at times. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly for the most part. The finish was glossier than some of the other shades–more luminous than satin. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is pinker, lighter. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is a bit lighter, more matte. Too Faced Naughty Nude (P, $21.00) is slightly warmer. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $22.00) is a touch browner. NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Delectable (LE, $16.00) is warmer, more matte. MAC Wholesome (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Cozy Up (LE, $16.00) is a smidgen warmer. See comparison swatches.

Sin-a-mon (935) ColorSensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a cool-toned, gray-tinged light-medium beige with a luminous sheen. It was semi-opaque, so it allowed the natural lip color to come through (which makes it look a little rosier when applied than when swatched). It applied evenly for the most part, and the color lasted for three and a half hours. It was somewhat hydrating.  MAC To the Future (P, $18.00) is lighter. MAC Naked Bliss (LE, $16.00) is much lighter. MAC Japanese Maple (LE, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Round-up

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

This spring, Urban Decay Rule34 Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss ($20.00 for TBA fl. oz.) launches as the newest (but permanent) gloss formula as part of the Naked range.  It’s a sheer, hydrating, creamy gloss that feels fairly lightweight.  The consistency is somewhere between gel, cream, and lip balm (the kinds found in tubes, not the stick variety).  They’re very comfortable to wear and last between three and four hours on me (about average).  I didn’t notice any taste, but they are scented with sweet mint (like the Lip Junkies).  Shades like Lovechild and Streak don’t apply as evenly as I’d like, but shades like Beso, Naked, and Freestyle are great options for anyone who likes sheer lipgloss.  (If you aren’t into sheer lipgloss, consider the Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color range instead.)  But as a result of the sheer quality of the glosses, they tend to look more alike once applied than they do in the tubes, as the image above illustrates, so you probably don’t need every single shade!  There are subtle differences, and the biggest difference is often shimmer versus no-shimmer.

Urban Decay Rule34, Streak, Walk of Shame Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipglosses

Urban Decay Rule34 Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss
Urban Decay Rule34 Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

Here’s a look at the last three glosses from the new Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss range! You can see the first three here and second set of three here.  To recap, Urban Decay Rule34 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.

Rule34 is described as a “medium brown-nude.” It’s a medium brown with a subtle rosy tint and a cream finish. The color coverage was semi-sheer, and the gloss applied evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines. It wore well for three and a half hours. Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) (P, $28.00) is shimmery. MAC Everlasting Nude (LE, $19.50) is more opaque. Chanel Genie (P, $32.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Streak is described as a “coral-peach.” It’s warm-toned, medium peach with a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it applied evenly for the most part. The gloss lasted just over three hours on me. The difference between this and Rule34 are pretty slim when applied. Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) (P, $28.00) is shimmery. MAC Meteoric (LE, $20.00) is darker, pinker. Chanel Nakkar (P, $29.50) is shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Walk of Shame is described as a “pale nude-pink with subtle micro-shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with subtle gold micro-shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff when applied to lips. It just barely settled into lip lines, but you couldn’t tell from a normal viewing distance. It applied evenly overall, and the gloss wore well for three hours on me. bareMinerals Dazzler (LE, $18.00)is similar. MAC Richer, Lusher (LE, $20.00) is pinker. MAC Kiss Me Softly (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

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.
