Anastasia Fall 2016 Lipgloss Set

Anastasia Fall 2016 Mini Lip Gloss Set ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized glosses in six, new and exclusive shades. I’m a big fan of Anastasia’s gloss formula for something more pigmented, longer wearing, and hydrating over time. On the whole, the set is nice–the colors are very autumnal, and for the most part, they applied well, had good color coverage, and were moisturizing and comfortable to wear.

Amber is a muted, medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, smooth consistency that applied evenly but had some color gather into lip lines. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. Bite Beauty Eight (Watercolor) (LE, ) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Live It Up (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Fresh Mango (26) (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Berry is a rich, dark reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic–fully opaque–and distributed evenly across the lips. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and mostly non-tacky throughout the wear. The gloss wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating over time.
MAC Perpetual Holiday (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Plato's (LE, $26.00) is brighter (95% similar). Tarte WCW (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Unspeakable (P, $26.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Deviant (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (DC, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Modern Drama (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale (P, $54.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Sookie (LE, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (DC, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Carla is a bold, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, fairly lightweight, and spread evenly across the lips. It had nearly opaque color coverage, which covered the lips well and did not appear streaky or feather over time. On my lips, the color lasted for five hours and was moisturizing. Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (18) (P, $48.00) is darker (95% similar). Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) (P, $48.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Revlon HD Carnelian (545) (DC, $8.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maple is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and gold and copper shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that felt comfortable on the lips, but it did not apply as evenly as it could have. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Lancome Cuivre Casting (08) (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Brains 'n' Bronze (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Rose Pearl (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Bite Beauty Bronze Pearl (DC, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Girl, Please (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Rum (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Aragon (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Oh Baby (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). Lancome Iron Nude (12) (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Raisin is a muted, medium-dark pinky mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones paired with a cream finish. The consistency seemed a bit thicker, and it didn’t seem to look as smooth on the lips, as it emphasized my lip lines (without really settling into them), particularly on my lower lip. It was richly pigmented, though, and the color spread evenly across the lips. This shade wore nicely for just over five hours on me, and it felt moisturizing to me. NARS Bound (P, $26.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rum is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented with full-color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. The texture was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted. NARS Area (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Chestnut (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Feelin' So Good (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Maple (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Christian Louboutin Beaute Casanovella (P, $85.00) is cooler (85% similar). Smashbox Girl, Please (P, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Aragon (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Anastasia Fudge (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Anastasia Lip GlossAnastasia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors. The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).

Ooh this is a really pretty set! and it rated well!
I really like all of the colors, even the lightest shade while although it won’t suit me, I can always mix it with another color.

Way nice set. Great colors. Great way to try, if you haven’t been there yet. The ‘where to buy’ tab has all the usual suspects, rather than being an abh exclusive. Correct me, if I’m wrong.

The Where to Buy is populated automatically based on where the brand is available – it is not currently possible to set it by the item.

Ah, so. Thanks. Ironic that you answered my ? for ACP, ahead of me in the queue, but then explained that the where to buy down drops the usual sellers. Thanks. There is absolutely no need to have the tab do it by individual item. That would involve massive coding, and we can def look it up.

One of the adjustments in the future is to allow me greater ability to customize where to buy, but it’s just not set-up to do so. We are working on a redesign/recode of the website, so that’s taking all the time at the moment!

I’m not sure I’d wear 3 of the shades. For my coloring I think the summer was a little more on point. I think I might be able to order it still. I love your eye makeup. I’m always impressed with the quality of these glosses.

This is such a beautiful set! The colors are perfect for fall and I love her gloss formula. I wish this was available in stores but I’ll still order it soon. I must have Rum, Raisin and Maple

Very nice set! I was drawn to Maple even though I’m not usually drawn to warm colours! I also like Raisin and the others with the possible exception of Amber which is a little pale for me. Interesting there’s only one dupe for Raisin.

All beautiful, but I only need Maple from this set, and there are no close dupes. I think if I got either UD lipstick in Conspiracy or UD Vintage lipstick in Roach, and added some gloss to it, I might be able to get close.

I have this set and the summer set. I love these glosses! They are so comfortable yet long-lasting and have amazing pigmentation. Many shades remind me of NYX Intense Butter Glosses but I like tbe consistency of the ABH glosses better. Maple is definitely a stand out in this ser.

I noticed that these are made in China (PRC). Very disappointing.
I will not buy mu made there. Their standards for manufacturing are not well defined.
Bummer, these look really nice.
