Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry, Citrus Evolution, Passionate Peony Color Elixirs

Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture is thicker, mostly non-sticky, and was nicely hydrating while worn. On me, it wore well for four and a half hours. It does have a strong perfume-y scent and soap-like taste. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is warmer. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer.

MAC x Julia Petit Lipsticks

MAC Acai Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “vivid deep violet [with a Matte finish].” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark fuchsia-berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was a little drier, though it didn’t drag too much when applied, but it seemed to emphasize any dryness/natural texture on the lips as it wasn’t as thick or as velvety in feel as some of MAC’s recent matte finishes have felt. It had mostly opaque color coverage that wore well for six hours but was fairly drying. Tom Ford Beauty Xavier (LE, $32.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Fanny (P, $32.00) is lighter. MAC Splurge (LE, $22.00) is lighter, glossier. Marc Jacobs Beauty Cabaret (146) (LE, $30.00) is glossier. Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (P, $30.00) is glossier. YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (P, $34.00) is glossier. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Little Pretty (130) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery.
