I’ve got the goods on the six lipglasses up for a comeback! 🙂 These just arrived from MAC – all the labels just say “sample” on the back, so I don’t know if these were a recent production or if these were from original runs. I’m thinking they’re probably from short runs – perhaps just to ensure the colors could still be made or have the recipes ready to go into production as soon as voting is over.

Chanel Vegas Gold Le Crayon Levres / Precision Lip Definer

Chanel Vegas Gold Le Crayon Levres / Precision Lip Definer ($29.00 for 0.04 oz.) is an molten gold designed to line the center of the lips to add a “touch of light.” The color is similar to Urban Decay Eldorado, which is an eyeliner. I can’t think of any lip liners that I own that are similar, but NYX Gold might work (I haven’t seen it, so I couldn’t tell you for sure) as it turned in my search for “gold lip liner.”

Maybelline Very Cherry Color Sensational Lipcolor

Maybelline Very Cherry Color Sensational Lipcolor ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is is a brightened blue-based red with a subtle sheen. When I saw Maybelline use this during Fashion Week in February, it looked like it might be a dupe for Chanel Dragon. It’s not a dupe, though they’re both blue-based reds with deeper ruby tones, so there are definitely similarities worth noting. MAC Runaway Red is a touch brighter and less blue-based. MAC Ruby Woo is cooler toned. Guerlain Garconne is more of a neutral red in comparison.

Make Up For Ever Folk Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick

It’s a new, limited edition shade in a new, coming-soon formula. Make Up For Ever has taken their Rouge Artist formula but given it a softer, sheerer color and finish.  Folk wore for three and a half hours, which is just a little below average (four hours).  It has a lighter texture compared to Rouge Artist, and it seems a slightly more hydrating, though I wouldn’t describe it as a moisturizing lipstick.  It has a slicker consistency that gives it a bit more glide across the lips thank Rouge Artist, which has a creamier texture.  I think it’s great the the brand is branching out with the formula and going for something that still has color but isn’t as creamy or as dense as their Rouge Artist range.
