Chanel Elise, Ina, Emilienne Rouge Coco Lipsticks

Chanel Elise (448) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink lilac.” It’s a softened, medium pink with cool undertones and a subtle, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage with a fair amount of translucency; if you have more pigmented lips than myself, you may find it even less noticeable applied. The texture was lightweight, emollient, and lightly hydrating, though it lasted two and a half hours and didn’t apply evenly. NARS Marisa (P, $32.00) is more opaque, lighter. Givenchy Hibiscus Exclusif (302) (P, $36.00) is brighter. Guerlain Geraldine (77) (P, $51.00) is brighter. Estee Lauder Powerful (P, $30.00) is more opaque, lighter. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $22.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Maybelline Tangy Tulip, Bubblegum Bloom, Carnation Cabernet Color Sensational Lip Colors

Maybelline Tangy Tulip (960) Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency that was thin but glided on without tugging. On me, it lasted for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. The formula has a sweet, fruity scent that’s not too strong. MAC Ravishingly Rich (P, $23.00) is more matte. NARS Lana (P, $32.00) is darker. NARS Geraldine (P, $32.00) is similar. Givenchy Corail Signature (317) (P, $36.00) is lighter. Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen (P, $22.00) is redder. Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is brighter. NARS Timanfaya (P, $25.00) is more matte.

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. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is brighter. Tom Ford Beauty Violet Fatale (P, $50.00) is more shimmery. MAC Rebel (P, $16.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
