Bite Beauty Holly/Tannin Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Holly/Tannin Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dual-ended lipstick, so there is a lipstick shade on each side. This is a double dose of red–one warmer and brighter, one cooler and deeper. Both shades are lovely to apply and wear, and there were no issues with application, hydration, or wear; both shades could have been a little bit more pigmented.

MAC Recollection & Tailored to Tease Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC Recollection Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense bright violet.” It’s a slightly brightened, medium-dark violet purple with subtle, cool fuchsia undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, matte finish. It applied evenly for the most part, but there were a few areas that seemed to have less coverage than others; I didn’t think it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance, just up-close. The color wore well for six and a half hours but was moderately drying after four hours. Melt Cosmetics By Starlight (P, $19.00) is more muted, cooler, glossier (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Rollergirl (P, $18.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tarte Yaassss (P, $20.00) is lighter, glossier (80% similar). Colour Pop Be-dazzled (LE, $6.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Bae & Lovespell Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Bae Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool blue undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and didn’t cling, but to be sure, this is not a formula that dries down to that very flat, matte finish. It will transfer over time. The color lasted for six hours on me with a fair amount of staining afterwards. It was lightly drying after four hours. Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Red (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Stunner (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Estee Lauder Decisive Poppy (P, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Hexagram (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

MAC Faerie Whispers Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Calypso Beat Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral pink with pearl.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with wamr undertones and white shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a smooth, lightweight texture that was non-tacky and comfortable to wear, though it emphasized lip lines with its lighter color. On me, it wore for two and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC On the Scene (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

MAC Quite the Standout & Rich & Restless Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC Quite the Standout Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It’s a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a slightly thin consistency that applied with smooth, even color and no visible streaking (once it dried down). This was one of the better shades in the range, as it had the very matte finish but didn’t make lips look dry. It lasted for seven hours but was somewhat drying. Kat Von D Countess (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Cray Cray (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). MAC Lady Danger (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Neon Orange (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Dangerous (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Tomango (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

MAC High Drama & Oh Lady Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep dark plum.” It’s a blackened plum with cool undertones and a matte finish. While a lot of the darker shades actually out-performed light and medium shades, this one was more of a miss. It needs at least two coats, if not a lip liner underneath just to manage some of the unevenness/streakiness present in the shade itself. It had semi-opaque coverage and a longer dry down time (two minutes). On me, it wore for seven hours and was moderately drying after four hours of wear. MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Motorhead (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Damned (P, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Sin (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Eugenie (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar).
