Free for Haul Friday, Volume #355

Share any beauty goodies you may have picked up in the last week or so, or maybe what’s on your way or on your wish list for next week or month. 🙂

  • Haul: It’s actually been a completely ridiculous week of stuff coming in! Most of what I bought will be swatched/reviewed (well, I hope), I just ask for your patience so please don’t ask me when, as I can’t make any promises! 🙂 I picked up several IT Velvet Luxe Brushes, plus all 12 shades of Estee Lauder’s Hi-Lustres, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, First Aid Beauty Lip Balm, Dior Mono Eyeshadows (x6), Anastasia Stick Foundations, Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors (x9)
  • Weekend plans: I’m trying to get up a half our earlier to take advantage of the “cooler” temps we’ve been having so Mellan can get a walk in! I’m also hoping to organize the garage. We’re fortunate that we don’t have that much stuff (about 1/2 of a car space worth), but it could be more organized and better laid out for greater access. It’s the last part of the house that hasn’t been organized since we moved in last year.
  • What has been the best part of your summer?: My mom and grandma visiting was a major highlight! It meant a lot for both to come!

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! 🙂

Smashbox Punked, Violet Riot, Talk to Me Be Legendary Matte Lipsticks

Smashbox Punked Be Legendary Matte Lipstick

Smashbox Punked Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It was more of a satin than a matte, as it had some sheen. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy, and glided on without dragging on the lips. It had good pigmentation, which distributed evenly across the lips. This shade wore well for four and a half hours but had some color pull into lip lines over time. MAC Halsey (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Petit Four (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Smashbox Violet Riot Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) id a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, but some of the natural lip color was still visible. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being too slippery, and comfortable to wear. On me, this lipstick wore nicely for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Pandemonium (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Recollection (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Punk Couture (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Notorious (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Violet Vixen (P, $7.49) is brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Leather (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Smashbox Talk to Me Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, neon magenta with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but it did not apply as well as it should have–it emphasized lip lines as color pulled into them and looked uneven along the upper lip. The color lasted for over six hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Tickler (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Fashion Tide (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Doo Wop (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M202 (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Buds (DC, $6.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Savage (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Whipped Blush (LE, $14.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Kat Von D Backstage Bambi (P, $20.00) is brighter, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty #007 (LE, $36.00) is more muted (85% similar). Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, long-wearing, richly pigmented formula that’s lightweight and moisturizing. The texture has a more velvety feel compared to the Cream range, and the finish varied between matte and satin. The formula didn’t cling, but it often accentuated the appearance of lip lines and natural texture on the lips, and it was mostly a non-drying formula. The majority of the colors I tested had good pigmentation and longer wear. There was a very, very faint vanilla scent to them (I could only detect when the entire tube is untwisted) but no discernible taste.

Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Colors

Chantecaille Seashell Mermaid Eye Color

Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Color ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is supposed to be a “richly pigmented,” “high shine, crease-proof” formula that can be used “wet or dry.” I initially thought it was a cream eyeshadow when I bought it, but it is actually a loosely packed powder–not unlike Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows or L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. The feel and performance was similar across the four shades. The formula was richly pigmented, smooth, blendable, and easy to apply on the lid, but the one area that was less impressive was wear–I did get noticeable creasing after six hours. I tried it over an eyeshadow primer (Smashbox 24-Hour), and it seemed to solve longevity issues, as it lasted until I took it off (12 hours later). They can be used wet or dry, but I did not really find the two methods to differ in terms of results or ease of application.

Chantecaille Seashell Mermaid Eye Color ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented both wet and dry, and the texture was soft, silky, and dense, so a little went a long way on the lid. The color blended out easily but showed signs of creasing after six hours of wear. LORAC Black #2 (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Ginger Sugar (LE, $14.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Gold Ashes (12) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Koosh (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Rich Glance (LE, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Norma Jean (P, $32.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Fashion Beat (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Stila Kitten (P) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Make Up For Ever #13 (P, $23.00) is cooler (80% similar). Anastasia Blush (LE, $12.00) is lighter (80% similar). Tarte Crystal Spark (LE) is lighter (80% similar). Too Faced Devotion (P) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chantecaille Triton Mermaid Eye Color ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium taupe with cooler, gray overtones and warmer, brown undertones paired with a metallic sheen. It was opaque applied both dry and damp, but the damp application made the base color appear deeper and more intense. The powder was smooth to the touch, dense, and adhered well to bare skin while still blending out nicely. On me, it wore well for six and a half hours before creasing. MAC Cloudy Afternoon (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Golden Snow #4 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Stroke My Ego (P, $18.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #16 (P) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Zoeva Outline (P) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova #3 (P) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Terra Sienna #2 (P) is less shimmery (85% similar). NARS Stag Film (LE, $29.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Uncommon (LE) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Satin Taupe (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever I550 Olive Gray (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Callisto (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Clarins Nude #3 (P) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tarte Steel the Scene (LE) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Urban Decay Angel (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Morning Frost (DC, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Dior House of Pinks #4 (LE) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Big Attitude (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar). MAC Divine Rule (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Vintage Selection (P, $18.50) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chantecaille Starfish Mermaid Eye Color ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep burgundy-brown with warm, red undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture had a really dense, but smooth, feel to it. As the powder loosened from the surface, it felt more like a loose pigment when applied with how intense the coverage was. This shade wore well for six hours on me. bareMinerals Most Requested (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Roach (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Plumifique (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Fatal (837) (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Universal Appeal (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Queen (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar). MAC Oh My Mocha! (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (80% similar). Laura Mercier Cherrywood (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Estee Lauder Violet Underground #2 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). Giorgio Armani #27 (LE, $33.00) is cooler (80% similar). Sugarpill Countess (P, $13.00) is brighter, cooler (80% similar). bareMinerals Euphoria (P) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Natasha Denona Rosewood (51M) (P, $29.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Dior Destinee (875) (LE, $32.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
