NARS 413BLKR Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is less matte and has no sparkle. MAC Moxie is similar, but it is completely matte and less blue-based. Illamasqua Atomic is extremely comparable–it even has the iridescent shimmer; it appears to have more of it.

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “red-brown.” It’s a medium-dark, subdued red–it’s warm, brown-hued, and shimmer-less. MAC Pret-a-Papier is a bit redder and has lots of shimmer. Chanel Braise has shimmer and is slightly more plum. MAC Looks Like Sin is similar. MAC Whoops is brighter, more coral.

Intrigue is very comfortable to wear, because the consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, so it feels lightweight on lips but still has a cushion-y feel.  The texture is non-sticky as well.  This shade wore for four hours on me with semi-opaque color coverage, minimal settling into lip lines, and even color overall.  It has a delightfully high-shine finish that gives lips an illusion of fullness.
