Tarte Hella, Obvi, Slay Tarteist Glossy Lip Paints

Tarte Hella Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “white nude.” It’s a light, warm peach with a cream finish. This was one of the worst shades in the range, as it was uneven and tended to gather in lip lines, so it just didn’t look as smooth applied. It had good color payoff, lasted for three hours, and was hydrating. Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Innocent (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Maybelline Life's a Peach (P, $4.49) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bare Baby (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Lap Dog (LE, $22.00) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (85% similar). Anastasia Dainty (P) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Brooklyn & So Wavy Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Brooklyn Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright hot pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark warm, fuchsia pink with a semi-matte finish. It was rich color payoff with full coverage that applied evenly. The consistency was thin and then “dried” to a mostly matte finish–less satiny than many others shades in the formula–that was lightly tacky but didn’t lift color when I pressed my lips together. The color was still going strong after seven hours of wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC To Matte with Love (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Greta (P, $32.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). Tarte So Fetch (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Berlin (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar).

Colour Pop Naked Ladies (LE, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Ouiji (P, $6.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Maybelline All Fired Up (P, $7.99) is darker (85% similar).

MAC It’s Never Ending & Last Minute Versicolour Stains

MAC It’s Never Ending Versicolour Lip Stain ($24.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep raspberry.” It appears as a medium-dark rosy pink initially, but it develops into a dark, raspberry pink with subtle, warm undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly without emphasizing lip lines. This shade wore well for eight hours and was lightly drying over time. Giorgio Armani #601 Plum Vinyl (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Exposed (P, $52.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Distinction (21) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar).

Tarte Fave, Poison, WCW Tarteist Glossy Lip Paints

Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “pigmented” with a “glossy” and “non-sticky” finish and have a hydrating formula to back it up. There are nine shades available, and it is a new, permanent formula. The consistency is light-medium in weight–more gel-like with a very smooth, lightly creamy texture. It’s more like a gloss than merely a liquid lipstick, so it has a glossier finish overall. Most of the shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque, and even the darker shades applied evenly for the most part (that was a surprise!). They’re comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and non-sticky over time. The wear varied between three to five hours for me. I didn’t notice any scent or taste when testing these.

MAC Tattoo My Heart, Truly Everlasting, Forever Darling Versicolour Stains

MAC Tattoo My Heart Versicolour Lip Stain ($24.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright pinky coral.” It’s a medium, orange-coral with warm undertones that gets rosier when it “sets” on the lips. The texture was thin, watery and developed into a slightly thicker, more gel-like consistency after a minute or two. It was unforgiving, though, as the gloss gathered in lip lines. It had mostly opaque coverage and lasted for six hours. It was somewhat drying. MAC Never Say Never (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (DC, $28.00) is brighter (90% similar). NARS Paris Follies (LE, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is more shimmery (85% similar). Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Dior Tropiques (379) (P, $35.00) is cooler (85% similar). Illamasqua Mistress (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Spritz, Botanical, Naked Ladies Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Spritz Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true bubblegum pink.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a thin, almost runny, texture that was easy to apply and then “set” to a lightly tacky consistency. It sat fairly well on the lips without being heavy, and the color didn’t lift when you press your lips (despite the tackiness). There is minimal transfer, but it isn’t completely dry. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me and was very lightly drying. Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Virgin Rose (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Silly (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop 1st Base (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Pink Sugar (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Jolly Molly (220) (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Melancholia (P, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar).
