MAC How Tropical, Pillow Talk, Royally Riotous Lipsticks

MAC How Tropical Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “nude beige.” It’s a yellowed, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen.

It applied somewhat unevenly and looked streaky, while the color settled into lip lines from the get-go and only worsened over the next two and a half hours. It was slightly drying as well.

Kat Von D Exorcism & Damned Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on moderately evenly. It could have applied better, but it didn’t look noticeably streaky from a normal viewing distance, only when close-up.

Kat Von D Melancholia & Lovesick Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Melancholia Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose blush.” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly, which was a nice surprise. The texture was soft, dried down quickly enough not to feel like it took forever to dry but gave you enough time to work with it to get crisp edges. It lasted for six and a half hours on me with light fading along the center of the lips but not enough to be jarring. It felt a bit drying after five hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is warmer, glossier. Colour Pop 1st Base (P, $6.00) is darker. Colour Pop Fetch (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter.
