Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss
Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss

Anastasia Melon Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a brighter, light-medium peach-orange with warm undertones and a cream finish. There was a milkier quality to the color, and despite it being rather pigmented, it did not apply well. This shade settled into lip lines and was visibly streaky. On me, it wore for four hours and was hydrating. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Neon Orange (-, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Maui Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, but it was harder to apply this shade evenly, as it was more prone to streaking than some of the other shades in the formula. The consistency felt creamy and comfortable on the lips, though. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is brighter (95% similar). Chanel Super Coral (157) (LE, $34.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Tattoo My Heart (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). NARS Playpen (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Illamasqua Mistress (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Neon Orange Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with a hint of pinky-red tones paired with a cream finish. This shade was fully opaque, but it could have applied a little more evenly–it was slightly streaky and did not adhere as evenly around the inner center of my lips. The consistency was creamy, light-medium in weight, and comfortable to wear over the four hours it lasted. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Anastasia Melon (-, $16.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). NYX Orangesicle (P, $5.99) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Candy Coral Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, a little more gel-like, and it spread easily across the lips, but I did encounter a bit of streaking. It had good pigmentation, though, and it wore well for four hours on me. NYX Napoleon (P, $5.99) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Snitch (DC, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Playpen (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Anastasia 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).

Because it does not last long time. And a lot have big glitter and then the gloss isalready gone and the glitter is on the lips. But I have to try these from Anastasia.
