The Hit List

That’s tough! For something really shimmery, I think Urban Decay’s pearly Creams and Metallized finish are pretty good (some could be more opaque), but they are comfortable and tend not to emphasize the texture of the lips. For a more refined shimmer, Estee Lauder Hi-Lustres, Shiseido Rouge Rouge, Guerlain Rouge G.

The Hit List

I’m a big fan of Anastasia’s Lipgloss and MAC Vamplify, as well as some of the more lipgloss/lip stain hybrids like YSL Glossy Stains, Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color, etc.. I also like NARS newer Velvet Lip Glides, but they don’t retain the glossiness for as long as traditional glosses (it’s a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid).

The Hit List

I have normal-to-dry skin, light-medium skin tone, warm undertones. Technically, Tarte Rainforest of the Sea is full coverage, which it can be, but it isn’t crazy, intense pigmentation in one tiny drop. That would be my favorite, but after that, I would argue Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (always a classic). I also liked Tarte’s Double Duty Hybrid Gel Foundation, but it doesn’t have a great shade match for me.
