MAC Everybody’s Talking, Push Some Buttons, Flash Drive Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Everybody’s Talking Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as am “intense coral.” It’s a brightened, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that applied with even coverage and lasted for five hours. The formula was comfortable to wear and lasted for five hours on me.

LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencils

LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, waterproof pencil eyeliner that is “highly pigmented.” It’s a decent formula, but there are better ones on the market–for a late entry in the market like this, I wanted these to perform better. They’re water-resistant, but they will smudge somewhat if you rub or apply pressure to them with any water–if you just dabbed with a tissue (e.g. you teared up), they hold up fine. The overall wear was on the shorter side, averaging between seven and eight hours, with a waxy consistency that glided well across the skin but sometimes had a faded, muted look applied.

MAC Spanking Haute, Tuned In, Hyper-Fabulous Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Spanking Haute Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “pinky nude.” It’s a light-medium, pink-tinged peach with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a comfortable-to-wear formula but uneven coverage that was prone to appearing streaky on. It’s not the worst offender I’ve come across, but it has a messy to look to it without a lipstick or liner underneath it. On me, this shade wore for four hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

ColourPop Intoxicate & Jet Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Intoxicate Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “caramel brown.” It’s a medium-dark, yellowed brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy consistency that blended out nicely on the skin without sheering out. I had no issues applying it with a brush (MAC 242), but you can also use fingertips if you prefer. It wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing.

Milani Desire & Romance Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Desire Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a brightened, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a smooth, matte finish. It was intensely pigmented and applied with even coverage, though the more liquid-y consistency does make it a little harder to maneuver around the edges. As always, I recommend trying to remove excess product from the applicator or using a lip brush to make it easier to apply. It wore well for eight hours with minimal fading and was a little drying after seven hours. Colour Pop Succulent (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). Hourglass Raven (P, $28.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Underage Red (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar).
