L’Oreal Florid Pink & Pucker-Up Pink Colour Riche Le Glosses

L'Oreal Florid Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss
L’Oreal Florid Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss

L’Oreal Florid Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss ($7.99 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, blue-based cotton candy pink with a creamy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it did settle slightly into lip lines. Edward Bess First Kiss is warmer. MAC Next Fad is warmer, more shimmery. MAC Saint Germain is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Pink Nouveau is more opaque, slightly cooler-toned. MAC Petite Indulgence is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Pucker-Up Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss ($7.99 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a sheer pink with pink and silver shimmer. The gloss really appears mostly colorless applied, but there is a lot of visible shimmer. Urban Decay Trashed has finer shimmer. MAC Fashion Fanatic is milkier. MAC Demure is lighter. MAC Floating Lotus is similar. Bobbi Brown Pastel is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Colour Riche Le Gloss has a very smooth, jelly-like texture that is comfortable to wear and non-sticky.  It is creamy, glossy, and the pigmentation seems to vary from shade to shade.  They have a strong, sweet,burnt caramel scent but no discernible taste (it reminded me of the older Urban Decay Lipsticks).  Florid Pink lasted two hours on me, and Pucker-Up Pink a shorter one and a half hours.  The formula is moderately hydrating, so if you don’t mind reapplying often, you may still like the formula.

Both shades are part of a limited edition collection that I’ve only seen in stores–I was personally hoping it would go online, because none of the lip products have any type of seal in-store. After I checked three or four glosses/lipsticks and found them tested, I walked away without buying anything. I really wish L’Oreal (and all brands) would seal products that sit on displayers for any and all to grab.

OCC Anita & Sebastian Lip Tars

OCC Anita Lip Tar
OCC Anita Lip Tar

OCC Anita Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “browned burgundy.” It’s a deep, dark brown with reddish-burgundy undertones; it seems more brown than burgundy to me, but it is certainly a mix of the two. It’s incredibly pigmented, and as is par for the formula, a little goes a very, very long way. It seemed slightly thinner than other Lip Tars, so it was more unforgiving during application.   This shade lasted eight hours on me and continued to linger on as a stain for another two. OCC Black Metal Dahlia is lighter, more cool-toned, less brown. Urban Decay Shame is brighter, redder. MAC Soulfully Rich and MAC Prince Noir are cooler-toned. MAC Chestnut is browner, less red. OCC Black Dahlia is cooler-toned, less brown. See comparison swatches.

Sebastian Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “plum-toned taupe.” It’s exactly that: a mix of gray and beige with a hint of plum. It had opaque color coverage, and again, a little went a long way. It’s certainly an interesting and more unique color (I couldn’t think of any dupes for it, though that doesn’t mean there isn’t something else like it out there–feel free to chime in with a dupe if you have one!). Sebastian wore well for seven hours but didn’t leave behind a stain (which wasn’t surprising, as it is lighter hue).

Both shades will launch at Sephora on August 27th.

P.S. — Please keep an open mind. Just because you don’t like the color(s) or don’t see the point in them, doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t. One person’s everyday color is another person’s once in a blue moon shade–and vice versa. Please be respectful when sharing your opinion. Not liking it on you is one thing, telling others they’re ugly if they wear it is quite different.

MAC Indulge Collection Lipglasses

MAC Indulge Lipglasses
MAC Indulge Lipglasses

MAC’s Indulge Collection (online at MAC now, online elsewhere and in-stores on August 22nd for North America locations) features five Lipglass shades in various colors and finishes. Lipglass is tacky, thick, and can vary from sheer to opaque. I typically get between three and five hours of wear with the formula, depending on the color and finish. I’ve only had a chance to try two of these for wear, so I’ll update with the remaining three tomorrow or the next day.

Fashion Punch Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone neutral pink.” I don’t see pink, not even in the tube. It’s a just-shy-of-medium peach with strong warm, orange tones and light gold pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage with minimal settling into lip lines. It lasted for three and a half hours on me. MAC Pure Flattery is lighter and more shimmery. MAC Imperial Light is sheerer. Chanel Genie is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Liqueur Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering taupe.” It’s a reddish-brown with gold, copper, and pink shimmer. The finish is fairly frosted, and the color coverage is mostly opaque and even. This shade is a repromote (fyi, MAC’s website lists it as Liqueur, but the bottom of my tube has Liquer). MAC Social Light is more plum, less red. MAC Deliciously Demure is lighter, less red. MAC Blessedly Rich is browner. Dior Ambre Lumiere is similar. Bobbi Brown Beach is browner. See comparison swatches.

Lust for Life Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark berry.” It’s a bright, berry red with fuchsia and ruby red pearl. It was semi-opaque–plenty of color but a light translucency that keeps it from looking too heavy. MAC Rebel is less shimmery, more purple. MAC Colour Saturation is similar but less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Ultimate Dish Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light beige with pearl.” It’s a peachy beige with warm undertones and white shimmery. It had semi-opaque color coverage and applied evenly overall, but it did settle into lip lines. This shade wore for three hours on me. MAC Calypso Beat is pinker. NARS Buenos Aires is more muted. MAC Peachstock is less shimmery. MAC Illicit is less shimmery. Hourglass Imagine is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Utterly Tart Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a rich, deep red with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. There is a hint of pink/berry in it that gives it more depth. It applied with mostly opaque color coverage and did so evenly and almost no settling into lip lines. Chanel Triomphal is warmer, shimmery. MAC Driven by Love is brighter, less pink. MAC Send Me Sailing is less pink. MAC Russian Red is brighter. MAC Cult of Cherry is shimmery. Bobbi Brown Black Ruby is shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC Indulge Lipsticks

MAC Indulge Lipsticks
MAC Indulge Lipsticks

MAC’s Indulge Collection (online at MAC now, online elsewhere and in-stores on August 22nd for North America locations) features five lipstick shades in various colors and finishes. The only shade I’ve haven’t worn to test is Just a Bite, as it is very much your standard red lipstick from MAC (which isn’t a bad thing), so I expect it to wear well and long, but will test it in full tomorrow.

By Design Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft shimmering beige [with a Frost finish].” It’s a warm peach with a frosted, m etallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and lasted three hours on me–it was a little drying, too. MAC Posh Tone, MAC Delectable, and MAC Freckletone are all similar in color but lack the metallic finish. See comparison swatches.

Feed the Senses Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone mauvey nude [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a soft, neutral pink with a subtle mauve tint. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it lasted for two and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Native is warmer. MAC Haute Altitude is similar–more opaque, a touch darker. Dior Candide is cooler-toned. Chanel Confidentielle is shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Just a Bite Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone blue red [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned red with blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and I expect it would wear between five and six hours with some staining. MAC has released reds like this before. NARS Mascate is more matte. MAC Such Flare is more matte. MAC Runaway Red is slightly lighter. Guerlain Liu is pinker. MAC Absolute Power is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Smash Hit Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer golden sparkle [with a Dazzle finish].” It’s a mix of pale gold, copper, and pink micro-glitter and large sparkle. It doesn’t deposit much color, mostly sparkle. It does have a noticeably gritty texture from the glitters. It wears for about two hours or less, but the glitter travels a lot. This shade is a repromote. MAC Ruffian Gold is less sparkly. Guerlain Altoum is more golden. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Succulence Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep glossy plum [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a purplish berry with cool undertones. It was semi-sheer, and it had a tendency to settle into lip lines and took some blending to apply evenly. It lasted three hours on me. NARS Valparaiso is brighter, more opaque, matte. NARS Afghan Red is more matte. MAC Red Dwarf is slightly pinker. MAC Positively Dashing is lighter. MAC Deliciously Forbidden is much pinker. MAC Plum Bright is purpler. Guerlain Bee is more berry-colored.

YSL Fuchsia Dore (14) Glossy Stain

YSL Fuchsia Dore (14) Glossy Stain
YSL Fuchsia Dore (14) Glossy Stain

YSL Fuchsia Dore (14) Glossy Stain ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a reddish pink with subtle, very fine gold shimmer. Chanel Triomphal is slightly redder. MAC Plum Fun is cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Black Ruby is similar–not as opaque. See comparison swatches.

All of the Glossy Stains I’ve tried have definitely turned redder applied than they do in the tube, and this one was no exception. It turns to more of a reddish berry with gold shimmer–but it looks almost warm-toned when I’ve applied it, compared to how it looks in the tube or just swatched on the skin. Overall, the color is mostly opaque (you can see my lip freckle peeking through). The color gets pinker and less red as the gloss and stain wear and wear; the glossiness lasts four to five hours, while the stain lingers for upwards of eight hours. The consistency is thin and very liquid (feels a lot like water), and it has a strong grape scent. After ten minutes or so, the product thickens and turns into more of a thin, gel consistency that’s lightly tacky. It was neither hydrating nor drying when I wore it.

Chanel Rendez-vous (87) & Secret (85) Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Rendez-vous (87) Rouge Coco Shine
Chanel Rendez-vous (87) Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rendez-vous (87) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense blue-pink.” It’s a medium, subtle blue-based pink with a luminous sheen. This shade is part of the Colour range, so it is designed to be more pigmented–and it is at nearly opaque coverage–than the original range of Rouge Coco Shines. It wears for four hours, which average, and is lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Fiend is warmer. MAC Please Me is lighter. Chanel Belgravia is darker, cooler-toned. Le Metier de Beaute Fuji is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Secret (85) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft shimmering pink.” It’s a warm, peachy beige with a shiny finish. This is part of the sheer range, and as a result, it has semi-sheer color coverage. It doesn’t really alter my natural lip color, but you can see how it does even out my lip color–especially at making my lip freckle look quite faded. Secret lasted two hours on me, and when I wore it a few times back-to-back, it was lightly hydrating. Chanel Melba is lighter. Chanel Gourmandise is similar. See comparison swatches.
