Marc Jacobs Beauty Gone Bad (216) Lust for Lacquer

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gone Bad (216) Lust for Lacquer
Marc Jacobs Beauty Gone Bad (216) Lust for Lacquer

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gone Bad (216) Lust for Lacquer ($28.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “coral red.” It’s a bold, bright coral-orange with warm undertones and a glossy finish. Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is pinker. MAC Morange (LE, $15.00) is warmer, less red. MAC Ablaze (LE, $15.00) is more muted. Illamasqua Temper (P, $22.00) is lighter, less red. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade is part of the full coverage range, which is quite fitting, as it is intensely pigmented with full opacity. I did notice that it looked almost “bubbled” in places, which I think may be due to the fact that is more light-medium in thickness. The consistency is almost gel-like and creamy, but it doesn’t slide around. It’s not a gloss that feels like you’re wearing. It doesn’t bleed or feather on me, and it lasted for five and a half hours. The formula is mostly non-sticky (just towards the end it feels slightly tacky), is mint-scented, and is lightly hydrating on me.

Lipstick Queen Have Paris, Play It, See Me Silver Screen Lipstick

Lipstick Queen Have Paris Silver Screen Lipstick
Lipstick Queen Have Paris Silver Screen Lipstick

Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be pigmented, hydrating, long-wearing, and have a “wet-look” for finish. They’re fairly pigmented, wear long, feel somewhat hydrating, and have a glossy (or wet) finish. The consistency of the lipsticks is thin, and they don’t feel stiff when applied, but they almost need to “melt” a little to glide on really nicely. They are mint-scented but don’t have a noticeable minty tingle except for the first couple of minutes of wear.

Lipstick Queen Play It Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly–it appears almost like a stain with the translucency it has. The color wore well for five hours and felt hydrating. Bite Beauty Framboise (P, $24.00) is lighter, more matte. MAC Catharina (P, $23.00) is darker. Guerlain Very Pink (360) (P, $37.00) is similar. Too Faced Melted Candy (P, $21.00) is brighter. MAC Red Balloon (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Dominant (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler-toned. MAC Feeling Amorous? (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Revlon Whimsical (115) (P, $8.99) is sheerer. MAC Lickable (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lipstick Queen Have Paris Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm-toned, coral-red with a glossy sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, and again, this one almost looks a bit like a stain. The consistency was less creamy compared the other two shades I tried. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was slightly hydrating. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Trip (LE, $22.00) is more orange. Bite Beauty Grandifolia (LE, $28.00) is brighter, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lipstick Queen See Me Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a lightened, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had opaque color coverage–surprisingly more pigmented than the other two!–and had a creamier, easier-to-apply texture. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating. MAC Style Approved (LE, $22.00) is darker, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (LE, $49.00) is pinker. Givenchy Mandarine Bolero (304) (P, $36.00) is darker, redder. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is darker. MAC Sushi Kiss (P, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Red Ego (250) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick

Estee Lauder Red Ego (250) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deepened, dark red with cool undertones and a luminous finish.

I didn’t have any feathering or bleeding while I wore this. MAC Salon Rouge (LE, $16.00) is slightly darker, more matte. MAC Dangerously Chic (P, $23.00) is more muted. MAC Frank-n-furter (LE, $16.00) is more matte. NARS Charlotte (P, $32.00) is darker. MAC Hearts Aflame (LE, $16.00) is more matte, warmer. Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $22.00) is similar.

Estee Lauder Carnal (370) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, orange-red with a luminous finish and warm undertones. It was intensely pigmented and applied evenly and smoothly. The color lasted for over six hours, and it left behind a reddish stain.

NARS Marlene (P, $32.00) is warmer, darker, more muted. NARS Annabella (P, $32.00) is similar. Givenchy Carmin Escarpin (306) (P, $36.00) is similar. NARS Future Red (LE, $26.00) is redder.

Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (450) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a cool-toned berry with blue undertones and a luminous sheen. It had fairly opaque coverage, but there was a noticeable translucency. The consistency on this one was more slippery than other shades, which made it apply less evenly in comparison to most of what I’ve tried in the range. It lasted for six hours, but I did experience slight feathering during the last hour.

Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set

Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set
Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set

Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes three shades of Full-On Lip Cream and three shades of Full-On Lip Polish. The Lip Cream formula is described as a “creamy, no-shimmer lip gloss” with “sheer to medium” coverage.
The Lip Polish formula is described as a “sheer, shimmering lip gloss with a tingling, plumping effect.” The texture of both formulas was light-medium in thickness, creamy, and moderately tacky (the Lip Creams seemed slightly less tacky than the Lip Polishes). The Lip Creams had a tendency to settle into lip lines, and they’re true to the “no-shimmer” part of the description. The Lip Polishes are sheer with a fair amount of fine shimmer with a glossy shine.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to test the wear of these formulas, as the tingling sensation was just too much for me (I am often sensitive to lip plumping products, particularly any that really have a tingle you can feel); just swatching through them and testing the wear for two shades was too much for my lips. I would expect two to four hours, given how tacky they are, though, and the two I did test were White Russian and Chloe, both lasting three hours. I wish I could be more helpful!

White Russian is a peachy-pink with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and lasted three hours on me. It does settle into lip lines and doesn’t appear even when applied, though it is not the worst offender I’ve come across. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Berry Blast is a cool-toned, medium-dark fuchsia pink with a creamy, glossy finish. This shade had semi-opaque color payoff, and it went on a little more evently than White Russian, but there was some settling into lip lines. I felt like the deeper color helped to camouflage some of the settling, though. See comparison swatches
/ view dupes side-by-side.

Creamsicle is a milky, pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and this particular shade seemed to have a thicker consistency than the others. It settled into lip lines noticeably as well. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chloe is a peachy-coral with fine gold and peach shimmer. It had sheer color, but it had a fair amount of shimmer, which gave it a more “opaque” look in a way. This was the other shade I managed to test, and it also lasted for three hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Trixie is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had sheer color coverage with a moderate amount of visible god shimmer. It seemed to brighten and add warmth to my natural lip color. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sophia is a light-medium, pinky-mauve with gold shimmer. It actually seemed more like a combination of the two formulas, as this one had a creamier look applied, which tended to cover some of the shimmer. It also settled into lip lines and didn’t go on as evenly. The coverage was semi-opaque, which is more pigmentation than as described. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
