Urban Decay Sheer Beso & Sheer Bittersweet Sheer Revolution Lipsticks

Urban Decay Sheer Beso Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer mauve-pink.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied fairly evenly over lips and wore for four and a half hours. The formula was lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear. I personally love these types of colors, and one that wears decently but still has that translucency made this one a favorite for me (personally, of course). MAC Nippon (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Collin (LE, $32.00) is darker, more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Irresistible (62) (LE, $34.00) is brighter (85% similar). Buxom Dolly (LE, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Buxom Centerfold (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Etourdie (98) (P, $35.00) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Suzanne (438) (P, $36.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Mystical (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Chanel Roussy (426) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Dr. M & Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep blackened green.” It’s a cool-toned, green-leaning teal with very, very subtle emerald green pearl. It’s such a cool color, and I love that it applied with fully opaque, even color, but it emphasizes the texture/lines of the natural lip tremendously in a way that makes them appear raisin-like. Despite this, it didn’t seem to “crack” when I smiled, but it was a little more uncomfortable to wear (I felt more aware of it on than other shades in the range, even for liquid lipstick). It wore for nine hours and was moderately drying after five hours of wear.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Chlorophyll (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Illamasqua Apocalips (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo ($80.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a limited edition duo of highlighters (I got confirmation yesterday). You can still pre-order from Saks or place a back-order at Nordstrom. If you liked formulas like MAC In Extra Dimension Skinfiishes, Estee Lauder Gelee, or NARS Dual Intensity, you’ll like this one. It has that same baked-gel-powder type of powder. I think this could have been an excellent permanent addition to the Tom Ford range, so I hope the brand will reconsider making this permanent (and also coming out with a few more combinations!). The texture of both shades was incredibly soft, smooth, and finely-milled, while the product provides a noticeable sheen that stops just before it emphasizes the skni’s natural texture.
