Burberry Brick Red Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Burberry Brick Red Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss
Burberry Brick Red Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss

Burberry Brick Red Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss ($27.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a warm-toned, medium-dark coral with orange-red tones and a glossy sheen. Revlon Papaya is pinker. MAC Viva is mor emuted. MAC Whoops is similar. Guerlain Candy Stripe is less pigmented and more shimmery. Hourglass Nectar is brighter. See comparison swatches.

It’s mostly opaque with a creamy, lightweight consistency that feels a bit gel-like when applied–very cushion-y. It has a high-shine finish, and the color applied fairly evenly, though there was some minimal settling into lip lines (which I didn’t think was noticeable from afar). Brick Red lasted four and a half hours on me, and it was nicely hydrating during that time and my lips still felt moisturized even after it wore away.

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter ($7.49 for 0.09 oz.) is a pale, lightly warmed-up pink with a luminous sheen. MAC Dreaminess is more pigmented. MAC Angel is darker. Guerlain Beatrix is less pink. Guerlain Rose Desir is darker. Chanel Candide is pinker. Chanel Candeur is cooler. Chanel Magnolia is similar. Chanel Confidentielle is darker. Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink is cooler. See comparison swatches.

Pink Lemonade has semi-sheer color payoff that applied fairly evenly. It lightened my natural lip color but didn’t give it a heavy, pasty look as some pale shades can do. If a lot of beiges and pale pinks make you feel washed out, you may really like the sheerness and finish of this shade. It lasted a mere two hours, so you’ll need to be willing to reapply frequently. The consistency is slick, almost wet, and very balm-like, so it is easy to apply and slides right on (and this is likely why it tends to disappear more quickly than other lipsticks). It was lightly hydrating while worn.

Chanel Ce Soir and Le Baiser Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Ce Soir Rouge Coco Lipstick
Chanel Ce Soir Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Ce Soir Rouge Coco Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted plum with pink tones, subtle warm undertones, and a natural sheen. NARS Casablanca is darker, less pink. NARS Falbala is sheerer, more shimmery. NARS Mayflower is sheerer. MAC Craving is pinker, cooler. Chanel Bel Ami is warmer, less pink. Chanel Etole is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches.  The consistency was lightly creamy without being too slick or too wet, and it felt lightweight and comfortable applied–no heaviness or thickness from the creamy texture.  It was fully opaque, and Ce Soir wore for five hours and was lightly hydrating during that time.

Le Baiser Rouge Coco Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened, medium pink with subtle warm undertones (it seems to lean just slightly warm) and a soft, frosted finish. MAC Heart to Heart is warmer. MAC Force of Love is lighter. Chanel Enjouee is warmer, more coral. Guerlain Gourmandise is brighter, darker. See comparison swatches.  The texture of Le Baiser was only somewhat creamy–it was noticeably stiffer/drier compared to Ce Soir–which I expect is from the frost content in it.  It doesn’t tug or pull at lips; it’s just not as creamy.  The color applied with nearly opaque color (there is a very faint outline of my lip freckle coming through, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from afar).  It lasted five and a half hours, but it wasn’t hydrating (luckily, it wasn’t drying either).

Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) Le Rouge

Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) Le Rouge
Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) Le Rouge

Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) Le Rouge ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright coral pink.” It’s a bold, brightened pink-coral with a luminous shine and a creamy finish. MAC Elegant Accent is warmer, less pink. MAC Watch Me Simmer is very similar. MAC Hear to Heart is slightly pinker. MAC Force of Love is pinker. Guerlain Giulette is lighter, more shimmery. Chanel Phoenix is glossier. See comparison swatches.

Le Rouge is supposed to have a semi-matte finish, be long-wearing, and have rich color. It’s fully opaque in one stroke, and it has a lightweight, creamy consistency that’s comfortable to wear and hydrating while worn. Rose Dressing lasted five and a half hours on me. There’s a very faint scent that’s supposed to be mimosa and black currant, but I was hardly able to detect it in the tube and definitely not when applied.

One of its “features” is the leather wrapped around the tube, which while it looks nice, feels thin and prone to scratches and tears. Because of how thin it felt, and I would be afraid to toss it in a bag, because I could leave imprints and scratch it with my nails alone (I tested it).

Tom Ford Willful Lip Color Shine

Tom Ford Willful Lip Color Shine

Tom Ford Willful Lip Color Shine ($48.00 for 0.12 oz.) is brightened, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a glossy shine. Chanel Amant is more matte, brighter. MAC Hibiscus is shimmery. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is less pigmented. Guerlain Chamade is cooler. Guerlain Bal de Mai is pinker. See comparison swatches.

The Lip Color Shine formula is Tom Ford’s way of giving you lighter-weight, sheerer color with an ultra-hydrating formula. Willful actually packed quite a bit of color with mostly opaque color that had some translucency that allowed the natural lip color to come through slightly. For those who found other shades of the range too sheer for the price point, you might like the opacity of this one. It lasted just over four and a half hours well on me before starting to fade. It was very hydrating and comfortable to wear with a creamy consistency that felt slightly slick but not too wet, so it didn’t bleed or settle into lip lines.

Revlon Cruise Collection ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

Revlon Cruise Collection ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick
Revlon Cruise Collection ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

Revlon Cruise Collection ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick ($9.99 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, warm-toned coral with subtle golden copper shimmer. NARS Beautiful Liar is warmer, more orange. MAC Lady at Play is lighter. MAC Hibiscus is brighter. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is redder. Guerlain Nahema is lighter. Guerlain Chamade is similar. Guerlain Bal de Mai is darker. Burberry Pink Amber is pinker, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The texture is slick, slightly tacky, and has a natural sheen but nothing too shiny or glossy (but not totally matte). It feels somewhat thin, and it applies and looks a bit like a lip stain/lipstick hybrid. The color was semi-sheer to semi-opaque. Initially, I was loving the texture, feel, and look of this product, but after wearing it for a few hours, I was less enamored. The major problem with the formula is that it sucked the moisture right out of my lips (which were hydrated and smooth prior to application), and the drier my lips became, the more uneven and flaky the lip color started to look. It managed to last for about five hours, though it became progressively unflattering over the last two hours of wear. The formula is, unfortunately, touted as long-wearing with lots of hydration.
