Maybelline Tangy Tulip (960) Color Sensational Lip Color
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 Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty All the Way (122) (P, $30.00) is darker. Milani Sweet Nectar (P, $5.49) is more matte, brighter. MAC Morange (P, $16.00) is darker.

Maybelline Bubblegum Bloom (965) Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light, cool-toned pink with a strong white base and white frosted shimmer. It was semi-sheer with a gritty texture that applied horribly; it was incredibly uneven, made my lips look worse, and settled into lip lines. The color slipped away within an hour and a half with additional color settling into lip lines, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Petal Pink (710) (P, $7.49) is darker, brighter, less shimmery. MAC To Savour (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC A Novel Romance (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Dress to Impress (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Be Fabulous (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. MAC Rose Lily (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery. Revlon Cupcake (P, $7.49) is darker. MAC Dreaminess (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. Guerlain Rose Innocent (LE, $51.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Maybelline Carnation Cabernet (970) Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, fuchsia-berry with cool, blue undertones and a glossy sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage with a moderately emollient consistency that has a “wet” appearance when applied. The texture is thin with translucency, so the natural lip color comes thorugh, and this tended to look like a lip stain applied. It lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Sheer Anarchy (P, $20.00) is less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Francesco (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, less glossy. Lipstick Queen Play It (P, $50.00) is similar. MAC Catharina (P, $23.00) is less glossy. Estee Lauder Dominant (P, $30.00) is brighter. Buxom Exhibitionist (P, $21.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
P.S. — There is one more new, limited edition shade from Maybelline, but my local store didn’t have it. Sorry! 🙁
