Urban Decay Apocalypse, Bittersweet, Vice Revolution High-Color Lipglosses

Urban Decay Apocalypse Revolution High-Color Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep purple-wine.” It’s a lightly muted, dark plummy burgundy with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that felt smooth going on, but it looked somewhat uneven. The gloss lasted for six hours and was hydrating while worn. It feels non-sticky initially but gradually develops tackiness as the gloss wears down and has no discernible taste and very subtle sweet vanilla scent. MAC Sin (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Talk Sexy (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Dior Intrigue (995) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Modern Lure (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Sultana (LE, $20.00) is less glossy, lighter. Chanel Controversy (72) (P, $32.00) is warmer. MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is darker. MAC Flight of Fancy (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Midnight Violet (P, $24.00) is warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Guyane & Vent Sale Lipglosses

NARS Guyane Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “seashell pink.” It’s a very light beige with a hint of pink and subtle shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff but settled into lip lines noticeably, and it wasn’t completely even. The texture was lightweight, lightly tacky, and lasted three hours but the color settled more and more into lip lines as it wore on. The formula was hydrating while worn. Maybelline Sandy Sensation (115) (LE) is sheerer, warmer. NARS Spring Break (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Orange Tempera (LE, $15.00) is pinker. MAC Emancipation (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned.
