Make Up For Ever C304, C305, C306 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C304 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation–you can see my lip freckle peeking through the color–and I think this was the result of the consistency being more emollient than other shades, so it didn’t cover as well. There was very subtle streaking, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only in the close-up photo). This shade wore well for five and a half hours, left behind a reddish stain, and was nicely hydrating. MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette Overview, Photos, & Swatches

Urban Decay Junkie Vice Lipstick Palette ($35.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a limited edition palette that includes 12-pans of lipstick with all shades from the brand’s permanent range of colors. There are two variations available, and between the two palettes, there are three shades that overlap–714, Big Bang, and Firebird. Junkie is slightly cooler in tone (particularly the second row) and includes a few less “traditional” shades. This palette is exclusive to Sephora and should launch sometime in September (I don’t have an exact date).

NARS Stripped, Unlaced, Playpen Velvet Lip Glides

NARS Stripped Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium beige with a hint of pink paired with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and while it didn’t appear streaky, the color settled into lip lines noticeably. This was one of the worst performers in the range as a result, even though it felt comfortable to wear over the three and a half hours it lasted. Chanel Insouciance (P, $32.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Art of Seduction (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Liquid Passion (LE, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar).

Shiseido Murrey, First Bite, Toffee Apple, Burning Up Rouge Rouge Lipsticks

Shiseido Murrey (RD305) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. This shade had very, very subtle streakiness due the more emollient consistency. I didn’t notice it from a normal viewing distance, but it is visible in the close-up. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and easy to apply as it didn’t tug or drag on the lips. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly. I was able to get four and a half hours of wear out of the lipstick, and it was moisturizing. Chanel Roussy (426) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Shiseido Coral Shore (RD309) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Sunny Seoul (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Fiend (DC, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bright Peony (P, $35.00) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever C106 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, natural finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging nor clinging to the lips without sliding around.
