ColourPop Beeper & Clueless Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Beeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm mid-tone taupe.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. I could see this leaning more neutral on those with naturally pink or cool-toned complexions. It had good pigmentation that applied with smooth, even color without “cracking” or emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for seven hours on me and was lightly drying after four hours of wear. Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five eyeshadows ranging from pale peach to shimmery, navy blue. It’s not the worst palette I’ve come across from Dior, but it had that signature miss–rich blue eyeshadow–that really brought down the palette as a whole, though the other four shades were okay but nothing impressive.

Kat Von D Chula Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “rich, warm sienna.” It’s a muted, medium-dark coppery-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency that applied with smooth, even color without tugging on the lips.

Estee Lauder Covetous Nude, Furious, Neon Azalea, Pure Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Covetous Nude Pure Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had full color coverage with a light-medium weight consistency that felt creamy applied, so it didn’t tug at the lips. The color seemed to “crack” as the color pulled away, possibly due to the slightly thicker, creamier texture. It wore for four hours on me, but the color settled into lip lines considerably. At least it wasn’t drying! MAC Pillow Talk (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Stark Naked (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadows

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition liquid eyeshadow formula available in five shades. It’s supposed to be a “lightweight, fluid eye shadow” that can be used “as a liner or as allover shadow” that is long-wearing with “enamel shine.” If you’re not a fan of liquid eyeshadow, I don’t suspect these will be converting you any time soon. The texture is thin and watery. They’re very, very difficult to work with, and they do not layer, blend, or dry down well on the lid; they tend to crack and flake off in chunks. If you attempt to layer, the next layer will lift the color underneath it, and the second layer won’t stick to anything. The only way to wear these was by applying a small dab on the center of lid and then using a fingertip to blend to the point where the color wasn’t noticeable and only some shimmer remained. I don’t recommend using the applicator, as it applies a lot of product and makes it difficult to achieve precision. These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities.
