Giorgio Armani Blush (500) Lip Maestro

Giorgio Armani Blush (500) Lip Maestro ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium rosy pink with subtle warm undertones and a hint of mauve. In the tube, it looks more mauve than when swatched and applied–it definitely has a rosier hue on. MAC Shanghai Spice is warmer, less pink. MAC Flamingo is sheerer, pinker. NARS Montego Bay is a bit warmer. Cle de Peau #124 is shimmery and sheerer. Lancome Voile de Rose is similar.

Urban Decay Flushed Lip Junkie

Urban Decay Flushed Lip Junkie ($19.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy mauve pink.” It’s a very rosy pink when swatched, but it turns a little more strawberry pink with a hint of mauve/plum on the lips. MAC Curvaceous is less pink, plummier. Illamasqua Move is cooler-toned, brighter. Neither of those shades is all that similar, so I don’t think I have a dupe for this shade.

Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “spiced brown.” It’s a subdued, rosy pink with a natural sheen. There’s none of the brown that you’d expect to see in “spiced brown,” but I would say that there’s a neutral element, like a beige or brown, that darkens and mutes the rosy color overall. Guerlain Ballade is redder, less pink, shimmery. Revlon Pink Truffle is less pink and more translucent. Bobbi Brown Nude Rose is lighter. MAC Glamourdaze is redder. MAC Offshoot is less pink, darker.

Urban Decay Obsessed Lip Junkie

Urban Decay Obsessed Lip Junkie ($19.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy baby pink.” It looks like a brightened, blue-based bubblegum pink in the tube and when you squeeze it out, but on lips, it is more subdued–more of a milky, light-medium pink with subtle blue undertones. MAC Going Casual is a bit cooler-toned. NARS International Velvet is very similar. MAC Pagoda is a touch cooler-toned and has shimmer. Tom Ford Sugar Pink is warmer.
