Polished Rose (01)

Lancome Polished Rose (01) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium rosy pink with cooler undertones and warmer gold and pink pearl. It had medium, somewhat buildable coverage with a very glossy finish. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, tacky, and did not leave “lines” if I pressed my lips together. I did have a bit of the pinker base settle into my lip lines, though. The gloss lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time.

The Le Metallique formula is supposed to have “full-coverage” with a “rich, creamy texture” that is hydrating and long-wearing. First and foremost, if you do not like tacky gloss, you’ll want to stay far away from these; the formula is very tacky and is a thicker, denser formula. They are longer wearing as a result, though, and most shades fell within four to six hours of wear for me and retain a really high-shine, high-gloss finish that almost looks wet and lasts throughout the wear time. Most shades were semi-opaque to opaque, but as the formula was thicker, I would hesitate to add more product to get more coverage. They seemed to have no discernible scent or taste to me.

ColourPop Hack Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and pink glitter. The brand described the coverage as sheer, and I would describe it as sheer to semi-sheer coverage. The gloss was non-sticky, lightweight, and smooth on the lips, which made it comfortable to wear, but I did notice color had settled into my lip lines, despite the gloss applying evenly otherwise. It lasted for three hours on me and was hydrating.

Dior #002 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, light pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented–you really do not need much to obtain a noticeable glow!–with a smooth, blendable consistency that wasn’t powder or dusty at all. It was incredibly easy to apply, and while it the finish was nearly metallic, it did not emphasize my skin’s texture unless applied very heavily. The highlighter lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

The Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer is designed to highlight, and it’s supposed to have a “highly-concentrated formula” with a “virtually imperceptible texture.” Each shade comes with a velvet pouch and mini kabuki brush. The brush was decent, but it was dense and larger than most highlighting brushes, so it was hard to apply the product precisely with it. The formula is comparable a lot of the recent highlighting powders that are denser, smooth without being powdery, and high-shine in finish.

Makeup Geek Daredevil Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentatin one layer, but it would be buildable to opaque coverage with two layers (the consistency would get slippery, though). The texture felt very smooth, velvety, and spread across the lips with ease, but it did my lip lines no favors and appeared “cracked” around them. This shade lasted for four and a half hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and did not feel drying while worn.

The formula is supposed to be a “cross between a cream and a mousse” that is “highly pigmented” with a “soft matte” finish. The consistency has an incredibly velvety, creamy feel without being slippery or wet, so it felt very smooth going on the lips and lightweight. I liked the way it felt on the lips for an hour or so of wear, but after testing about half of the range, they did not wear down well with an uneven fade and significant color in lip lines. While traditional liquid lipstick can dry and look “cracked,” I noticed that despite feeling quite forgiving, the finish often was not as lip color settled into and separated away from lip lines. The formula wasn’t designed to dry down to a flat, matte finish, and it does not, so the transfer was similar to that of a traditional, satin-finished tube lipstick for me. On me, the liquid lipsticks have lasted between four and six hours on me. They seem mostly non-drying on but seemed more drying as I wore them, particularly if I wore two in a row, which would leave my lips feeling raw. Just a heads up, each tube contains a surprisingly small amount of product (0.06 fl. oz.) relative to a lot of popular liquid lipstick formulas (Kat Von D contains 0.22 fl. oz., Anastasia contains 0.11 fl. oz., Smashbox contains 0.13 fl. oz., Stila contains 0.10 fl. oz., MAC contains 0.17 fl. oz.).
