Too Faced Melted Candy Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Candy Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright fuchsia pink.” It’s a brightened, medium fuchsia pink with very subtle blue undertones. On me, this type of color almost looks warm-toned. MAC Red Balloon (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is darker, redder. Estee Lauder Tumultuous Pink (P, $30.00) is less glossy. Bite Beauty Crianza (P, $28.00) is a touch darker. Too Faced Jelly Bean (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) is a touch sheerer. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $51.00) is darker, redder. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is more matte, warmer. Guerlain Gigi (P, $51.00) is slightly redder. See comparison swatches / view dupes. For the record, this is completely different from Melted Fuchsia in the same range, as Melted Fuchsia is much more magenta, cooler-toned, and lighter.

Dolce & Gabbana Fire, Devil, Scarlett Classic Cream Lipsticks

Here are the last three shades from the Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick ($33.00 for 0.12 oz.) range I have to share with you (you can check out part one here). The formula is supposed to be a long-wearing, richly-pigmented, and hydrating. In May, the brand added twenty new shades to its range for a total of forty-two. The formula is rose-scented but has no discernible taste for me. The consistency is creamy, light-to-medium in weight, comfortable to wear, and moderately moisturizing.

Too Faced Melted Berry, Melted Fig, Melted Marshmallow Liquified Lipsticks

Too Faced Melted Berry Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a brightened, dark, fuchsia-red with cool, blue undertones and a lightly glossed finish. It had insanely rich color payoff–a little goes quite a long way. The consistency is lightweight and very easy to apply for even coverage as it begins as a liquid. This shade lasted for eight hours well, and then a very long and lingering stain persisted for hours after. It was neither hydrating nor drying. Charlotte Tilbury Velvet Underground (P) is lighter. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is more matte, cooler-toned. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $51.00) is warmer. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NARS Anarchy, Gold Viper, Insidious Nail Polish

Here are three more shades from the upcoming nail collaboration between 3.1 Phillip Lim and NARS (official info here). If you missed the first three, check this post. In general, I find NARS’ lacquer formula to be underrated–it’s really quite good, both in terms of color payoff, consistency, as well as with respect to wear. I usually get seven to ten days of wear with very minor tip wear out of this formula.

Cult Nails Spring Radiance Collection

Cult Nails Radiance Collection includes three, limited edition shades. They can be purchased individually for $12.00 each, or you can use code TEMPTALIA12 to buy all three for $24. Alluring and Radiance were both nice shades that were easy to apply and had great end results, but Thrive’s thick consistency made it difficult to work with. It was the shade I was most excited about (personally–I love all things mint green at the moment), and as pretty as it can be, it requires a lot of effort and patience.

NARS Hell-Bent, Other Side, Crossroads Nail Polish

This July, NARS is releasing a collection of nail polishes in collaboration with 3.1 Phillip Lim (official info here). With these, NARS has introduced a wider brush (compared to the last polish I tried from NARS, which was in April), though the bottle size and shape have stayed the same. The bottles for this collection have the designer’s logo printed on the front as well. In general, I find NARS’ lacquer formula to be underrated–it’s really quite good, both in terms of color payoff, consistency, as well as with respect to wear. I usually get seven to ten days of wear with very minor tip wear out of this formula.
