Tom Ford Holden, Beau, Henry, Gustavo, Pavlos Lip Colors

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “nudes to browns.” I liked Beau, Henry, and Gustavo, but the other two shades were misses for me, unfortunately!

Revlon HD Citrine, HD Amber, HD Sunstone Ultra HD Lip Lacquers

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a very pigmented, high-shine formula that tends to be tacky (despite the brand saying it is “never sticky”) with a thicker consistency. There’s a very, very faint sweetness as far as scent goes, but it was hard to detect, even in the tube. The formula isn’t hydrating nor is it drying, so it is fairly comfortable to wear (as long as you don’t mind a thicker, tackier gloss to begin with). They feature a brush-type applicator, which seemed to give a rougher edge due to the thicker nature of the gloss. HD Citrine and HD Sunstone really stood out to me as a more unique shades that also performed well.

Revlon HD Pink Sapphire, HD Petalite, HD Smoky Topaz Ultra HD Lip Lacquers

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($8.99 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as an richly pigmented, lightweight, “never sticky” gloss with a “high-impact shine.” The best part about the gloss is that it delivers quite well on pigmentation, and they initially feel quite comfortable on with a creamy, almost gel-like quality to them. However, they get very tacky as they wear on, and the gloss itself is thicker. It’s not quite as thick as MAC Lipglass, but it is similarly tacky. I’m not keen on the brush-type applicator and feel like a doe-foot would have been better, as the strands of the brush tend to push the color outside the natural lip line and leave it looking slightly uneven (probably not noticeable from a normal viewing distance). They didn’t seem to have much of a scent, but in the tube, there was a very subtle sweetness. The formula is neither drying nor hydrating on me.

MAC Sterling Silver, Counterfeit, Clay, Steelpoint, Superfly Technakohl Liners

MAC Technakohl Liners ($16.00 for 0.012 oz.) are supposed to have a “soft and creamy” formula with “intense, rich colour deposit” while being long-wearing (specified as eight hours) and smudge-proof. This is the last of the reviews for the new shades, and we don’t end on a very happy note; there are better eyeliner formulas on the marketplace, both more, less, or equally expensive and accessible. MAC created some more unusual colors, but I found the formula to be lacking in color payoff, longevity, and texture.

MAC Skyscape, Raisinette, Bishop Blue, Image Conscious, Alpha Grey Technakohl Liners

MAC Technakohl Liners ($16.00 for 0.012 oz.) are supposed to have a “soft and creamy” formula with “intense, rich colour deposit” while being long-wearing (specified as eight hours) and smudge-proof. I wish I could say that these were more impressive than the shades I’ve already reviewed, but these may be even more disappointing. The formula is soft as in waxy, so while it usually glides across the skin, it doesn’t lay down much color while doing so, and the waxiness builds up such that the color goes on unevenly and sticks in some places but not others. The wear is also shorter (though MAC’s saving grace is that they specified eight hours of wear) than most eyeliners, but the wear I get is shorter than they’ve claimed for most shades.

MAC Bare Asset, Risque, Snowed In, Army Style, Sourpuss Technakohl Liners

MAC Technakohl Liners ($16.00 for 0.012 oz.) are supposed to have a “soft and creamy” formula with “intense, rich colour deposit” while being long-wearing (specified as eight hours) and smudge-proof. The lighter beige shades actually performed a lot better than the ones I reviewed previously, so those might be worth considering if you prefer a mechanical eyeliner. The two green-hued shades were a miss for me, though, due to their stiffer consistencies, shorter wear times, and color payoff (or lack thereof).
