Bobbi Brown Air Kiss & Bronzed Pink Tube Tints

Bobbi Brown Air Kiss Tube Tint
Bobbi Brown Air Kiss Tube Tint

Bobbi Brown Air Kiss Tube Tint ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink nude.” It’s a warm, light-medium peach with a hint of pink. There’s no shimmer in this one, just a jelly-ish consistency and look. On my lips, it’s mostly just something that adds shine and an illusion of fuller, smoother lips but not a lot of color–but note how it makes my lip freckle look faded, so there’s “coverage” but my natural lip color is so close that it doesn’t really look like it. The thicker consistency helped prevent this from settling into lip lines as many milky glosses do. Shades like Dior No Angel and Chanel Zephyr are similar in color but have shimmer. Shade slike MAC Summer Sweetheart, MAC Kiss Me Softly, and MAC Boy Bait are closer. See comparison swatches.

Bronzed Pink Tube Tint ($19.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “golden bronze pink.” It’s a gold and copper-shimmered bronze with warm, golden undertones. This shade tinted my lips a brownish-gray color but just slightly, and most noticeably, added a healthy amount of shimmer. It was hard to keep even, though. Dior Etincelante is more shimmery. Revlon Rosegold is similar. Dior Lame Gold is sheerer. Chanel Attirance is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Canary is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Tube Tints are supposed to be aa gloss with just a “hint-of-color,” which coordinates with Bobbi Brown’s Nude Beach collection. If you’re just looking for some shine and sheer color, it’s worth checking out because it comes with so much product–a lot of gloss in squeeze tubes have two or three times gloss that comes in a round tube, and this formula is no exception. The texture is thick (like a balm in a squeeze-tube) but not a goopy, syrupy thick, non-sticky, and both shades wore three hours on me. They had a very faint hint of vanilla but no taste. They’re also nicely hydrating both during wear but also left my lips hydrated a few hours after they had worn off.

MAC By Request Lipsticks (2013 Edition)

MAC Flavour Lipstick
MAC By Request (2013 Edition) Lipsticks

MAC Flavour Lipstick is described as a “soft, muted peachy-pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink-coral with a subtle sheen but fairly creamy finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that applied well without tugging or dragging on the lips, and it delivered opaque color coverage. It lasted four and a half hours when I wore it, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Native is very similar. Revlon Pink Lemonade is sheerer.NARS Bolero is more matte. MAC Haute Altitude is darker. MAC Ever Hip is warmer. MAC Coral Bliss is warmer. See comparison swatches.

MAC Glam Lipstick is described as a “vivid, bright pinky-red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a rich, vibrant cool-toned red with a strong blue undertone that it turns pink when sheered out. It delivered full color coverage, and the texture was slightly creamy but more comparable to recent Retro Matte finishes like RiRi Woo, Heaux, etc. It wore for eight hours and left a stain that continued on for a couple more hours. It was neither hydrating nor drying. There is no shortage of dupes for this shade, though, as it is a very classic red. MAC RiRi Woo is similar, not quite as pink-toned. NYX Chic Red is darker. NARS Dragon Girl is similar. NARS Luxembourg is brighter. MAC Russian Red is darker, not as cool-toned. MAC Ruby Woo is not as pink-toned. MAC Ronnie Red is similar. MAC Love Goddess is pinker. Guerlain Calligraphy #5 is similar. Dior Marilyn is also similar. Buxom Scoundrel is not as cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

MAC Hoop Lipstick is described as a “mid-tone rosy pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with subtle warm undertones and a subtle sheen. It had full color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy and like more recent MAC Matte lipsticks. It lasted four hours on me. Urban Decay Rush is more subdued. MAC Force of Love is brighter, darker. MAC Betty Bright is warmer, less pink. Chanel Hyde Park is pinker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Pink Poodle Lipstick is described as a “vivid, fuchsia-pink [with a Glaze finish].” It’s a cool-toned, fuchsia pink with iridiescent bluish-fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage; there’s a slight translucency that allows the natural lip color to come through, so if you have naturally redder lips, this will appear redder overall. It wore five hours on me and was slightly drying. Revlon Fuchsia Shock is lighter, not as blue-based. MAC Midnight Mambo is purpler. MAC Rare Exotic is darker. MAC Quick Sizzle is cooler-toned, matte. MAC Lickable is slightly warmer. MAC Girl About Town is darker. Estee Lauder Demure is less cool-toned. Chanel Extatique is lighter. Buxom Exhibitionist is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC Rozz Lipstick is described as a “watermelon reddish pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, coral-orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. It had really rich, opaque color payoff, and the consistency was lightly creamy so it didn’t tug on lips but didn’t slide around. It wore for six and a half hours and left a light stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Mysterious Red is darker. Chanel Amant is more orange, more muted. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more orange. MAC Lady Danger is more orange, lighter. Hourglass Raven is slightly more orange. See comparison swatches. (Also: In the Originals collection, you may remember Rozz Revival, which was inspired by this shade.)

MAC Tomango Lipstick is described as a “bright reddish orange [with a Matte finish].” It’s a vibrant, brightened medium orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. It had a lightly creamy consistency that applied evenly and well, and the color was rich and fully opaque on lips. It wore for six hours well and was neither hydrating nor drying. Urban Decay Bang is slightly brighter. Maybelline Orange Edge is similar in color, shinier. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is slightly redder. Maybelline Neon Red is shinier. MAC Scarlet Ibis is redder. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange is lighter. MAC Lady Danger is very similar–perhaps a fraction darker. Buxom Rogue is shinier.
See comparison swatches.

This post is part of a series of reviews featuring Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each). Please see part one for more in-depth coverage on the formula overall.

MAC Just Wonderful is more plum. MAC Pink Treat is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Rush 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “pink-mauve with soft pearl.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pink with silver shimmer and sparkle. This shade was a bit drier in consistency, so it looked drier applied, and I found that my lips were just slightly dry after wearing this compared to other shades..  It wore for six hours.  MAC In Anticipation is darker, less shimmery. MAC Pink Treat is darker. See comparison swatches.

Obsessed 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “baby pink.” It’s a light-medium, cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a matte finish.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils (Beiges & Browns)

Urban Decay Naked 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay Naked 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

This post features beiges and browns from the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each) shade range. This post is part of a series of reviews, so please see part one for more in-depth coverage on the formula overall. These will launch initially on urbandecay.com and then roll out to Sephora, Macy’s, Beauty.com, and ULTA shortly after.

Naked 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “nude-pink.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium beige-pink with a matte finish and warm undertones–it almost looks like a muted pink-coral. It was fully opaque applied to the lips and wore well for six hours on me. MAC Have to Have It is darker, browner. MAC Boldly Beige is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches.

Naked 2 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “medium beige-nude.” It is a warm-toned, light-medium brown with hints of beige and a matte finish. It applied with mostly opaque color and lasted six hours when I tried it. MAC Have to Have It is darker. MAC Boldly Bare is similar. See comparison swatches.

Deep 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “warm brown-nude.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had full color coverage when applied to the lips and lasted six and a half hours when I wore it. This shade was slightly drier compared to other shades. MAC Staunchly Stylish is more neutral-toned. MAC Morning Coffee is more plum. MAC Nice ‘n’ Spicy is slightly darker. MAC Etcetera is lighter, cooler-toned. MAC Have to Have It is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches.

Liar 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “mauve-nude.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned, plum brown with a mostly matte finish. It had full color coverage when applied, and it wore well for seven hours. MAC Morning Coffee is slightly browner. MAC Absolutely It is much more plum. See comparison swatches.

Ozone 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is perfectly clear, so it can be used outside the lip line as well as a more traditional lip liner. I like it for both uses, but I often to use it more for outside the natural lip line to keep the color perfectly within the lines.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (The Bolds)

Urban Decay 69 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay 69 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each) has been revamped, reformulated, and relaunched with sixteen shades. This post is featuring the brighter and bolder shades. The revamped Urban Decay lip pencil formula is creamy and glides on easily; it doesn’t pull, tug, or drag across the lips. Lip liners are one of my least favorite products to swatch on lips, because they can be really rough across the lips and doing more than one or two of them back-to-back is usually a recipe for sore lips later on. I had no trouble applying nine of these back-to-back, and that’s primarily because they really do glide across the lips and feel waxy, but they still deposit good color payoff as they move across the lips. On their own, they wear like iron and last anywhere from four to eight hours. Underneath a lipstick, they add two to three hours of wear, bringing total wear time of a shade like Bang lipstick (over Bang Lip Pencil) to eight hours of good wear to eight hours of really good wear and another two of lingering wear before reapplication was necessary.

69 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a bold, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It applied with full, opaque color coverage. It wore for eight hours and left a stain behind.  It was lightly hydrating initially, and then it settled into a neutral state where my lips didn’t feel dried out after the long-wear.  MAC Kiss Me Quick is warmer. MAC Cherry is similar. MAC Freehand is close. See comparison swatches.

Anarchy 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “bright fuchsia.” It’s a bold, neon fuchsia-magenta with a faint, iridescent sheen and a matte finish. It was incredibly pigmented and applied with full color coverage.  It lasted for seven hours well. MAC Embrace Me was the only shade I could think of, but it’s less blue-based and not nearly as bold/neon. See comparison swatches.

Jilted 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia-pink.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned pink with a subtle sparkle over a matte finish. This shade was a little drier compared to the others, which I suspect is because there is a slight shimmer/sparkle to it. It was still mostly opaque and relatively easy to apply.  Jilted wore for seven hours before showing noticeable sides of fading (but it left a stain behind).  MAC More to Love is darker, less sparkly. MAC Great Catch is slightly redder. See comparison swatches.

Bang 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It’s a bold, medium-dark orange with a matte finish and red undertones. It applied with rich color payoff, and it wore well for six and a half hours. MAC Throw Me a Line is comparable. MAC Entertain Me is lighter. MAC Ablaze is slightly brighter. See comparison swatches.

Venom 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “rich plum.” It’s a reddened berry with a matte finish and cool undertones. It was mostly opaque applied to lips, and Venom lasted a solid seven hours when I wore it.  MAC Beet is brighter, redder. See comparison swatches.

Generally, each shade wears exceptionally long on its own, and every layering combination I tried certainly increased the wear of the lipstick layered on top of it by anywhere from an hour to three hours.  On their own, they are not particularly hydrating, though I’m happy to report that they are not drying, either.  The ones with a light pearl or shimmer look driest on the lips, though they aren’t actually that dry in feel, just a little less waxy compared to the full-on matte shades.  The matte shades are more flattering when worn alone as a result, but both finishes work well underneath lipstick or gloss.  The only thing I really disagreed with from Urban Decay’s description of these is that they “stay creamy,” because they really do adhere to the lips once applied, so the color doesn’t move or rub together all that well, which is a large part of why it lasts so long!

These will launch initially on urbandecay.com and then roll out to Sephora, Macy’s, Beauty.com, and ULTA shortly after.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (Vamps)

Urban Decay Venom Lipstick
Urban Decay Venom Lipstick

This is the last post looking at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), and it features the deeper, darker shades within the shade range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Venom Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright plum.” It’s a rich, deepened berry-red with a violet and fuchsia shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage. It wore for six and a half hours and left a stain behind. Tom Ford Violet Fatale is lighter, brighter. MAC Rebel is slightly brighter. NARS Valparaiso is more matte, less bright. See comparison swatches.

Shame Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “deep berry.” It’s a deep, dark reddened burgundy with subtle hints of brown and ruby shimmer. This was my least favorite shade across the range because it really lacked the quality of the line in general; it was streaky, uneven, and had a tendency to feather after four hours of wear. The shade lasted well for six and a half hours and left an enduring stain behind, but the feathering (which is rare on me) was disappointing. MAC Soulfully Rich is darker, browner. MAC Endless Drama is warmer. MAC What Joy is lighter, redder. Guerlain Gigolo is brighter. Guerlain Orgueil is lighter, redder. OCC Black Dhalia is darker, less red. Burberry Bright Plum is much lighter and brighter. See comparison swatches.

Rapture Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “dusty rose.” It’s a pinky-plum with a glossy shine. It had full, opaque color coverage and applied smoothly. It wore four and a half hours when I tested it. Tom Ford Casablanca is more muted, less pink. MAC Red Dwarf is darker. Chanel Destinee is more muted. See comparison swatches.

Manic Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “soft wine.” It’s a bold, brightened plummy red with a soft pink shimmer. It had rich, full coverage color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly. This shade wore well for five hours when I tried it. MAC Heaux is cooler-toned, matte. Chanel Fiction is lighter. NARS Palais Royal is more berry-colored. Giorgio Armani #406 is similar, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
