Chanel Fall 2016 Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks

Chanel Rouge Charnel (56) Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-tinted red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. There was very subtle pearl that gave it a light shine. The texture was very smooth, velvety, and thin without being clingy. The lipstick sat well on the lips without emphasizing imperfections, and it lasted for over six hours. It started to feel drying after six hours of wear on me.

Make Up For Ever M102, M200, M201 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M102 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, plum-berry with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the better shades in the Matte finish; richly pigmented paired with a lightweight, smooth, and velvety consistency that applied easily. The texture didn’t appear dry or unforgiving on the lips, but it didn’t have a strong sheen (though it is not the ultra matte finish of some of the popular liquid lipstick formulas). This shade wore well for over six hours, left behind a fuchsia stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Scrooge (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $17.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop More Better (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar).

MAC Itsy Bitsy, Dilly Dazzle, Love You Big Time Lipglasses

MAC Itsy Bitsy Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is an icy, pinky-lavender with cool undertones and multi-colored pearl along with larger, copper flecks of sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage with all of the shimmer in it; the base color seemed sheerer and tended to blend in with my natural lip color, but there was a ton of shimmer in this one that made the gloss appear more opaque applied. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Shiseido Nebula (VI207) (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Perky (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar).

Make Up For Ever C604, M100, M101 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C604 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a satin finish. There seemed to be very, very fine shimmer that kept it from being a true cream. The consistency was lightly creamy but dense, which yielded full color coverage in a single pass. The lipstick held well to the lips, so it didn’t migrate or move around, but it wasn’t clingy, which made it comfortable to wear. This shade wore for five hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Hautecore (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NYX Chambord (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #50 (P, $19.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC In the Spirit (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Anastasia Midnight (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $17.00) is more muted, cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Tarte Naughty (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Rouge Ingenue & Rouge Tentation Rouge Allure Lip Colours

Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, beige-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, luminous finish with a very fine pearl sheen. It had good color coverage, though the natural lip color will still peek through (so it’s not the full coverage promised). The color went on evenly but had a tendency to pull into some of my lip lines over time. The texture was thin, creamy, and comfortable to wear over a three hour period. MAC Highlights (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Café (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). YSL Le Nu (70) (P, $36.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Carousel, Candy Yum Yum, Raring to Go Lipglasses

MAC Carousel Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered with very little streaking, but the color sunk into lip lines, which may be a deal-breaker for some. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel too heavy. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly hydrating for me. Anastasia Dusty Lilac (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pure Silliness (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Illamasqua Indulge (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Saint Germain (P, $15.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
