Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick
Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick

To recap, the new Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to have “sheer, pigmented color” with a “high-shine finish” and “buttery-smooth application.” The texture is thicker than traditional lip balm, but it has the “stiffer” feel where it starts to melt upon contact of the lips. It isn’t as thick or as creamy as the original Revolution formula (and obviously, these aren’t as pigmented). The pigmentation is semi-sheer to semi-opaque noticeable translucency but still that “sheer (yet still pigmented!)” color they seemed to be after. I wish I found these hydrating, but they weren’t drying either.

Urban Decay Sheer Obsessed Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer baby pink.” It’s a light-medium, slightly muted, rosy pink with cool undertones and a light shine. This one was semi-sheer to semi-opaque and tended to look uneven any time I pressed my lips together. It’s just thick enough where it can do that, but it doesn’t feel heavy on. It lasted for four hours on me. Bite Beauty Lavender (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Snapdragon (LE, $16.00) is sheerer, shimmery. Bobbi Brown Pink Flush (LE, $25.00) is warmer. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is similar. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $22.00) is similar. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $22.00) is more opaque, lighter. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Urban Decay Sheer Liar Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer pinky-brown nude.” It’s a muted, medium brown with a hint of rose and a light shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly and smoothly. It was comfortable to wear and almost a little hydrating on me over the four hours it lasted. Buxom Dolly (LE, $21.00) is less glossy. Estee Lauder Irresistible (P, $30.00) is more opaque. MAC Fresh and Frisky (LE, $20.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Strip (P, $22.00) is darker. Revlon Pink Truffle (P, $7.49) is similar. Urban Decay Liar (P, $22.00) is warmer, more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Urban Decay Sheer Streak Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer coral-pink.” It’s a lightly brightened, pink-coral with warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and glided without tugging on the lips. It was comfortable to wear and easy to apply. This shade lasted for four hours on me. MAC Love Temple (LE, $22.00) is warmer, brighter. MAC Phosphorescent (LE, $17.00) is pinker. Givenchy Corail Decollete (303) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is a touch pinker. Revlon Snow Peach (LE, $7.99) is brighter. MAC Be a Lady (P, $22.00) is pinker lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Paradiso (07) (LE, $49.00) is brighter. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (171) (LE, $35.00) is brighter. MAC Love Beam (LE, $20.00) is darker. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $22.00) is glossier, warmer. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is more opaque, more muted. Urban Decay Streak (P, $22.00) is lighter. Guerlain Georgia (P, $51.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Urban Decay Sheer Walk of Shame Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “sheer pale nude-pink.” It’s a sheer, golden beige with subtle gold pearl. It almost looked like it was going to veer towards clear when I swatched it, but it does actually have more color to its base. It noticeably lightened my lip color and muted my lip freckle, but it doesn’t apply all that evenly and tended to pull into lip lines a bit. I didn’t feel like it settled much more over time, but this shade only lasted three hours. Burberry Gold No. 217 (LE, $33.00) is sheerer. Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $34.00) is less glossy. Chanel Satisfaction (89) (P, $35.00) is similar. Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $34.00) is warmer. MAC Fleur d’Coral (LE, $16.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Moody Margot (106) (P, $30.00) is less glossy. Chanel Melba (75) (LE, $35.00) is similar. Chanel Gourmandise (76) (P, $35.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse (306) Eye Color Quad
Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse (306) Eye Color Quad

Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse (306) Eye Color Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of peach, plum, silver, and black. It reminded me of New Year’s Eve for some reason (maybe it’s the mixture of black and silver with an overall metallic sheen). I think the colors work really well together, but I wasn’t as impressed with the pigmentation or the texture of two of the shades. At this price point, I would expect perfection, particularly with respect to being soft, smooth, and blendable. It did apply better than I think it swatched, which was a nice surprise, but it could have been better. (Note, the price is for just the pan of four shades, if you want the official compact to house them, that will run you an additional $25. I keep all of mine in a Z-palette.)

Silver Eclipse #1 is a brightened, pink-peach with a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to fully opaque color with two layers. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and easily blended on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Silver Eclipse #2 is a muted, plummy mauve with very subtle warm undertones and a frost finish. It had very nice pigmentation with a silky-smooth consistency that was a cinch to work with. The color didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Silver Eclipse #3 is a light-medium, silvery gray with chunky silver sparkle. The consistency was more crumbly–too soft in a way–and had a chunkiness to it that made it hard to apply evenly. It didn’t stick well to the skin, and even patted on top of primer, it wasn’t great (I think it needs a tackier base so it adheres better). I had a fair amount of fall out during application, but there was only minor fall out after that. It lasted for almost eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Silver Eclipse #4 is a dark black with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff and was drier in consistency, which made it more difficult to blend out–and blendability is so important when you have deeper shades like this! It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Bunny Lippie Stix
ColourPop Bunny Lippie Stix

ColourPop Bunny Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is described as a “rich emerald green with small flecks of emerald glitter in a pearlized finish.” It’s a muted, medium-dark green with subtle, warm yellow undertones and cooler-toned, emerald green shimmer. It had smei-opaque color coverage that went on more evenly than expected, but it was a little streaky and uneven in places due to the more emollient consistency. It lasted for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. NYX Risque (P, $6.00) is a lot cooler-toned. Dolce and Gabbana Smeraldo (LE, $33.00) is darker and cooler-toned, though it is also a lot sheerer. See comparison swatches
/ view dupes.

ColourPop Charm Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is described as a “true mid-tone minty green in a satin finish.” It’s a brightened, light-medium aqua green with warm undertones and a satin finish. The consistency is creamy with a little slip, but it doesn’t slide around, and this shade had mostly opaque color coverage but could have been more pigmented (not quite full coverage as promised). It pulled into lip lines after two and a half hours and worsened until removed with a total wear time of four hours. It’s definitely a shade that would likely benefit from the matching lip liner available through the brand (I don’t have it). NYX Key Lime (P, $6.00) is brighter, greener. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Raw Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is described as a “clean aqua blue shade with a satin finish.” It’s a medium, aqua blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly full color coverage, but it didn’t go on perfectly evenly or smoothly. The texture seemed a little thinner with more slip, which gave it some streakiness. Again, I think picking up the matching lip pencil for this shade might be necessary to really make this sing. It settled slightly into lip lines after three and a half hours, but the higher slip in the formula made it easier to press lips together and smooth the color out again. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. NYX Pistachio (P, $6.00) is lighter. NYX Scandalous (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It can be tough to get non-traditional lip colors like these right, and ColourPop’s attempts are impressive, even if not perfect. I think if you found NYX’s Wicked/Macaron Lippies to have too much slip, this formula will feel more comfortable and be easier to apply, as they’re significantly less emollient. I’m going to try to remember to grab some of the lip pencils next time I order from them, as now I’m curious how those might perform and if they would improve the wear here (in theory, they should) or if, perhaps, they’re wearable on their own. I did pick up a few of the more traditional colors last order, so for those who wanted to see those, hopefully I can share sometime in the next couple of months.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette
Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette

Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette ($39.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a set of 24 eyeshadows to celebrate the color of the year: Marsala. Last year’s palette was larger in size and in amount ($48.00 for 1.53 oz.) with 24 eyeshadows and one blush. This year, there are still 24 eyeshadows (but no blush), and each eyeshadow is 0.017 oz. (compared to 0.059 oz. each). I liked the palette, and it was easier to use without a primer than many other palettes I’ve tried over the past few months–even the mattes–which is always a happy find, but a lot of the satin/matte shades seemed prone to fading. I think that it does get repetitive, there’s an overabundance of warmer tones, and in general, the composition could use improvement (greater diversity in tone, color selection, and for such a large palette, it could use a couple of lighter shades that could work as brow bone highlighters or transitioning shades). This palette actually seems like it will suit deeper skin tones more readily (which is often not the case), so that is a plus–I still think some cooler plums, a richer copper (rather than two gold-ish hues), and a couple of apricot/peach shades would have helped make this palette more versatile. The texture of the eyeshadows are slightly drier and more powdery–almost like there’s a bit too much filler, though color payoff is decent to good with a couple of exceptions.

The palette has deeper wells and seems cheaper (just in the way it felt), but the upside is that it is more compact and would be easier to travel wish. I just wish they had found a better balance between materials chosen and laying things out. Perhaps, if they were going to significantly reduce the physical size of the palette, they could have reduced the number of eyeshadows included as well (and the price could better reflect the reduction in size/quantity).

Autumn Blonde is a light, warm-toned beige with a bit of gold sparkle and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft consistency, though it was slightly powdery. It lasted for seven hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Toasted Nut is a brightened copper orange with a metallic sheen. The color payoff was rich and opaque, while the consistency was soft and smooth, so it was easy to blend on the eye. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marsala Matte is a muted, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had pretty good pigmentation with a soft, slightly powdery texture. It lasted for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marsala Satin is a muted, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a satin finish–it seemed slightly brighter than the matte version. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft consistency. It wore well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Shifting Sand is a light, brightened gold with subtle,w arm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was denser and felt almost creamy. It had good color payoff and lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cocoa Brown is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff but was slightly dry to work with. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Burro is a muted, medium brown with warm, khaki undertones and a matte finish. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wore well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Deep Taupe is a cool-toned, gray-taupe with a semi-matte finish. It was soft but dry, and it didn’t have the best color payoff. It showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marsala Metallic is a red-copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted sheen. It had really good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was easy to work with. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marsala Glitter is a slightly muted, medium-dark red-copper with warm undertones and sparkle over a more metallic sheen. The texture was somewhat dry, and the sparkle made it feel a little gritty, so it wasn’t a great product to work with. It lasted for seven hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Kelp is a muted, light-medium green with warm, golden pearly shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a fairly soft consistency. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dusty Olive is a medium-dark green with warm, olive undertones and fine, forest green shimmer. It had decent to good color payoff, but it was a little dry and could have been better. The color stayed on well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Desert Mist is a sparkling, golden orange with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a metallic, glittery finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and didn’t feel gritty, but it was prone to fall out both during application as well as during wear. It lasted for seven hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Butterum is a coppery orange with warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had decent to good pigmentation with a slightly dry texture. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Macaroon is a light-medium, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was slightly powdery. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chutney is an orange-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was slightly powdery but had fairly good pigmentation. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Nimbus Cloude is a sparkly silvery-white with a metallic sheen. It was semi-opaque and didn’t go on as smoothly or as evenly as one might like. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Moonlight Blue is a blackened navy blue with blue and silver sparkle. This shade was very dry, stiff, and had really poor color payoff and blenability. What I managed to get onto the skin stayed there for about six hours before fading, but it looked like something out of a horror movie. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Carob Brown is a muted, medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had nice pigmentation that went on smoothly and evenly. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bracken is a dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, golden bronze shimmer and frost finish. It had excellent pigmentation that went on beautifully and was easy to use. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Russet is a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. The texture was slightly dry, though it had decent to good color payoff, it just didn’t blend as easily. It wore well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Hot Chocolate is a warm, reddish-brown with a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff that was slightly dry and lasted for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Castor Gray has a reddish-brown base with a bluish-teal duochrome and metallic finish. It was a bit dry and dusty to work with, but it had decent color payoff and lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Red Mahogany is a rich, burgundy brown with a satin finish and warm undertones. It had fantastic pigmentation that was easy to apply, blend, and wear as it lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Tisse Fantaisie (236) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Fantaisie (236) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Fantaisie (236) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a mix of “pink coral, white satin, pale green satin, and intense brown.” It’s a new, limited edition quad for spring that leans warm-toned and earthy. Chanel fell short with the pigmentation on their spring quads relative to the permanent quads they released with this formula earlier in the year, which often had good or better color payoff applied dry. The majority of shades in the quad are better used with a dampened brush and bring to mind Chanel’s often-disappointing baked shadow formula of years past (which was often the non-U.S. version), though the textures are smoother in the new quad.

Tisse Fantaisie #1 is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was surprisingly sheer when applied dry, yet this formula is supposed to be pigmented without needing a damp application. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. Colour Pop Cheeky (P, $5.00) is lighter, pinker. Anastasia Fresh Peach (P, $12.00) is more orange. LORAC Apricot (LE) is more orange. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever S748 Coral (P, $21.00) is brighter, darker. Make Up For Ever S718 Salmon (P, $21.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Fantaisie #2 is described as a “white satin.” It’s a brightened white with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish and subtle warm undertones It was semi-opaque regardless of whether I used it dry or damp. It had a soft, blendable consistency, but the pigmentation was less stellar. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Shades like this are certainly useful, but they are more basic so there are plenty of shades very similar to it. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Fantaisie #3 is described as a “pale green satin.” It’s a medium-dark, olive green with warm, khaki and brown tones and a golden metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that seemed slightly richer and more intense when applied damp, but the coverage was the same regardless of application method. On me, the color wore well for eight hours. Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P) is warmer, brighter. Gucci Beauty Fumé (Left) (P) is similar. theBalm Kawabunga (LE, $16.00) is darker. bareMinerals Flicker (P) is lighter. MAC Sea Worship (LE, $19.50) is warmer. MAC Olive Blend #3 (LE) is warmer. theBalm #16 (P, $6.50) is greener, lighter. Anastasia Moss (P, $12.00) is greener. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $18.00) is darker. Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #1 (LE) is darker. MAC Unsurpassable (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Greensmoke (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Fiction (DC, $15.00) is similar. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE) is warmer, brighter. bareMinerals Spectacular (P) is more metallic, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Fantaisie #4 is described as an “intense brown.” It’s a dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a soft shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, but it wasn’t very intense unless applied damp. The consistency felt soft and was blendable on the lid, and it did last for eight hours before fading, but I wish it was more pigmented. Dior Cuir Cannage #5 (P) is less shimmery, darker. Tarte Take on Bordeaux (LE) is more matte. Dior Trafalgar #5 (P) LORAC Cocoa (P) is less brown. Dior Sundeck #5 (LE) is less shimmery. theBalm #1 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is similar. MAC Carbonized (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Insaisissable (152) Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Insaisissable (152) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Insaisissable (152) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vivid coral.” It’s a brightened, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly, but I thought the texture was a little thin and not quite stiff, but not creamy either. It was lightly drying over the five hours it lasted on me, unfortunately. Tom Ford Beauty Adriano (LE, $32.00) is slightly darker. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is similar. Guerlain Geneva (48) (P, $51.00) is glossier, slightly pinker. Dior Sunset (660) (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Bite Beauty Blood Orange (LE, $24.00) is more orange. Givenchy Rose Dentelle (203) (P, $36.00) is pinker. Chanel Pygmalion (LE, $35.00) is less pigmented. MAC Toxic Tale (LE, $16.00) is brighter. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel (LE, $51.00) is glossier, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Badine (154) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light pink.” It’s a light-medium, slightly muted pink with subtle, warm undertones and a light shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly. The texture was more emollient than Insaisissable, but I felt like this one bunched up in places as I applied–almost as if it was catching on flakes I didn’t know I had (but I don’t really see what I felt in the close-up image). This shade lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is brighter, more matte. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $26.00) is similar. Guerlain Rosy Boop (369) (P, $37.00) is a smidgen darker. Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $30.00) is lighter. YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is glossier. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is lighter. NYX Blush (P, $4.00) is less glossy. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
