Makeup Geek Tomboy Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a muted, purpled plum with warmer undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, and the lipstick had a smooth, creamy texture that applied beautifully to the lips. This was one of the few shades that actually looked flattering on as it did not appear “cracked” when I smiled. It spread easily across the lips, and while it felt comfortable on, the formula itself still seemed drying, as my lips felt raw after wearing it. This shade wore well for five hours and did leave a stain behind.

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.).

Viseart Petit Pro (01) Palette ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a miniature-sized, slim palette. This would be a good way to try the Viseart formula without breaking the bank; there is plenty of product in each pan, and each shade is quite pigmented so you’ll be able to get plenty of use out of it. The matte eyeshadows blended and layered well with the denser, more shimmery eyeshadows. The shimmery eyeshadows felt smoother and more cream-like compared to past shimmer finishes from the brand. Overall, it’s a nice palette if you don’t have these types of shades in your arsenal already.

Dior #003 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. Of the four shades in the range, this one had more noticeble shimmer and sheen on the skin, and it emphasized my skin’s natural texture a bit even at medium coverage. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was easy to blend out and diffuse for a softer effect. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

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.

Sneak Peek: Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks Photos & Swatches

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a new, permanent formula that launches January 19th on Urban Decay’s website. The formula will be available in 30 shades, and I have 25 of those shades swatched (apologies, I do not have the other five!). I’ll try to get at least one set of reviews up before the 19th, but the majority will come after that as liquid lipsticks typically tend to take awhile to test (only one or two a day).
