A

06. Tarte Ethereal

Ethereal is a rich, golden copper with warm, brown undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like consistency that wasn't too thick or dense, so it did not accentuate my lid's natural texture. Read full review.

07. Tarte Fire

07. Tarte Fire

Fire is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It was fully opaque in a single pass, though the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable that it could easily be sheered out if desired. Read full review.

08. Tarte Strobe

A

08. Tarte Strobe

Strobe is a light beige with warm, peachy undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, silky, and smooth texture that was moderately dense but not stiff or difficult to use with a blush/highlighting brush. Read full review.

09. Tarte Minx

Minx is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was smooth, blendable, and easy to apply to bare skin. Read full review.

10. Bite Beauty Jam

Jam is a muted, medium-dark berry plum with subtle, cool undertones and very, very fine shimmer. I felt like this was slightly cooler and more pigmented than the individual one I reviewed previously, and it seemed to have a touch less slip, which might have accounted for its better coverage and overall application.

04. MAC Diva

A

04. MAC Diva

Diva is a medium-dark burgundy with warm, red-brown undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, while the texture was lightly creamy with a light-medium weight to it--enough density that it covered well and felt smooth on the lips. Read full review.

A

05. Bite Beauty Bronze/Pepper

Bite Beauty Bronze/Pepper Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) features the most dramatic layered result of the duos, as the coppery top coat really changes the color of the rosy plum lipstick quite a bit. Read full review.

06. Bite Beauty Pepper

07. MAC Rebel

10. Cover FX Sunlight

Sunlight is a light-medium peachy gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. This one seemed to have the subtlest, least shimmery finish on the skin--more luminous and smooth--and did not emphasize the appearance of my pores or my skin's natural texture. Read full review.
