Anastasia Orchid, Electro, Potion Lip Glosses

Anastasia Orchid Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium lavender-purple with warm, pink undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff, while the gloss had enough thickness that it didn’t settle too much into lip lines, but it didn’t feel heavy. The biggest upside is how evenly the color applies, despite being lighter and quite pigmented. Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Dusty Lilac (P) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

MAC x Good Luck Trolls Lipsticks

MAC Can’t Be Tamed Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer lime yellow [with a Cremesheen finish].” It is a semi-sheer, chartreuse with a natural sheen. It was somewhat uneven and a little streaky, while some color gathered into lip lines over time, though I’ll say it applied a lot better than I expected. This would work better over a lip liner or patted over another lipstick to layer and alter the color. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Fragmented (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altressa & Casanovella Loubilaque Lip Lacquers

Christian Louboutin Beaute Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is newest launch from the brand. It is a lipgloss that’s supposed to have “brilliant, bold color” with “high-shine.” There are eight shades available; I purchased four to try and don’t expect to purchase the other four at this time. The gloss is housed in a clear, vial-like case, which is made out of plastic, with a flexible doe-foot applicator. It comes with a metallic ribbon that loops through the lid so that you can wear it (I would recommend using a sturdier chain). The formula is smooth, almost gel-like that feels cushion-y on the lips that is mostly non-sticky, and the shades I tried were fairly pigmented. The wear was between five and seven hours, while the formula was hydrating. The big issue I had with these was a tendency for them to get on my teeth. The formula has a floral scent and often soap-like taste. The formula reminded me a lot of Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss and Dior Fluid Addicts (this one feels more water-like initially, but it develops to a similar consistency within 30 seconds). I think the way they look on the lips is beautiful and lush, but the taste was frustrating for me.

Anastasia Tara (P) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Kiss Don't Tell (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Fab Tested (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar).

Guerlain Python Bag, Leather Blazer, Poppy Cap La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain Python Bag (012) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, caramel undertones and a fine copper and gld pearl. It had semi-sheer color payoff after two layers, and it could be semi-opaque after three layers, which is a little less than described but close. The texture was smooth, balm-like, and easy to apply to the lips. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Glamour Era (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Too Faced Sweet Maple (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Guerlain My First Lipstick, Pinketie, Black Perfecto La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour

Guerlain My First Lipstick (001) La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light, warm pink with subtle shimmer and shine. It is sheer, and it stayed sheer, regardless of applying one, two, or three layers, so it isn’t like the majority of the range (and given the name, it’s not a surprise, but unfortunately, brands don’t usually distinguish one-off shades that deviate from the formula description, so it’s being held to the same standards as the rest of the line). It lasted for a mere hour before needing reapplication. The formula was slightly hydrating after wearing it three times in a row. Tom Ford Beauty Forbidden Pink (22) (P, $50.00) is darker, more pigmented, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Nippon (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC I'm In (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Only You (LE, $17.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Hug Me (P, $17.00) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). MAC Peach Blossom (P, $17.00) is more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
