Flaming Red (823)

Guerlain Flaming Red (823) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color ($58.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a smattering of gold micro-glitter. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer. The texture was lightweight, emollient and slightly creamy without feeling too wet or too slippery on the lips with just a bit of texture from the micro-glitter in the bullet itself. The lipstick sat well on the lips and smoothed out a lot of my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and was nicely hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.12 oz. - $483.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge G formula is supposed to be hydrating with a luminous finish. Long-time readers will know it has been a favorite of mine forever! The part that I find is more unique to Rouge Gs is the finish; there’s a fine pearl that gives it a glossier, shinier sheen that isn’t too slippery. The formula is typically comfortable to wear, nicely hydrating, and lasts four to six hours. It has a floral scent but no discernible taste.

Aeris

Natasha Denona Aeris Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features four shimmering, sparkly shades and one matte. The first and last shades are supposed to be sheer, though only the last one was truly sheer. This is a palette that will work best for someone who typically uses a glitter adhesive or likes to use their shimmery eyeshadows with a dampened brush for maximum pigmentation, evenness, and wear.

Urban Decay Pyro, Grind, Catcall Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners

Pyro

Urban Decay Pyro Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a clear base with multi-colored glitter that seemed to shift a bit. It had semi-sheer “coverage” in the form of glitter but it performed best layered over something more opaque (like another eyeliner). The eyeliner was thin, watery, but it spread fairly evenly in a single stroke. It wore well for nine hours with minimal fallout.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.25 oz. - $80.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable" with "superfine glitter" that "dries down quickly and really stays put." For more opaque coverage, the brand recommends removing the wiper (the black component inside the opening of the tube) to get a lot more product on the brush, though I've found this to be messy and easy to over-apply (with a very long dry-down time). When the wiper is left in, it is a fairly sheer to semi-sheer coverage product that is difficult to get in a long, even line. My best advice is to apply in short strokes and going back for more product as needed or use a separate brush to apply. Once in place, the formula lasts a really long time--eight to nine hours--with minimal fallout.

Zoe

Tom Ford Beauty Zoe Boys & Girls Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, medium coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque in one stroke, while the texture was creamy, moderately emollient, and comfortable to apply and to wear. There was a bit of color that pulled into my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The lipstick wore well for four hours and was moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Ultra-Rich Lip Color formula is supposed to have "full-coverage" and "high-shine" that "moisturizers lips instantly." The majority of the range had semi-opaque coverage with a few being sheerer and some with more full coverage. The finish was more luminous--shiny but not glossy or heavy--which meant they had moderate slip, so they tended to wear around four hours on me. There were some of the deeper shades (like reds) that lasted longer and left subtle stains behind. I found the formula to be lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.
