Anastasia Pastel Pink Lip Gloss
Anastasia Pastel Pink Lip Gloss

Anastasia Pastel Pink Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a milky, light pink with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on surprisingly evenly, though some of the color slipped into lip lines; it really applied better than a lot of similarly-hued glosses in my experience, though there is still room for improvement. This shade wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn. MAC Saint Germain (P, $17.50) is darker (95% similar). MAC Pink Fade (LE, $17.50) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Pure Fiction (LE, $17.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 (LE, $17.50) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $19.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Tender (P, $22.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Picture Pink (LE, $17.50) is warmer (85% similar). NYX Merengue (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $17.50) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Patentpink (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Peony Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy pink with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth and easily spread across the lips, but there was faint streaking and a bit of color welled in lip lines. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, though, and lasted for a solid four hours. Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Edward Bess First Kiss (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Blushing (-, $16.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (PiP, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Kittenish (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Go for Girlie (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $17.50) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Anastasia Rio Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is an intense, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It was mostly opaque with just a faint bit of the natural lip color still coming through in some places. The consistency was a little thicker than other shades in the range, but it didn’t feel heavy or goopy on. Similarly, it applied fairly well with only a smidgen of streaking along the edges, as it seemed to self-level overall. The color lasted for five hours on me and was moisturizing over time.
MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Priscilla (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Scandal (DC, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Barbie Pink (-, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Anastasia Lip Gloss ($16.gloss00 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).

I really like their lipglosses. I’m cross-checked my Snupps and I don’t have a dupe for Rio. This may need to be mine! 🙂 Btw, I think Rio actually looks the best on you of the three as does the Too Faced shadows.

These look beautifully pigmented and best of all, smooth and even. Peony is seriously calling my name, and Rio is saying “hey you, me too!” LoL!

Also very nice to see a pastel pink that actually performs as well as Pastel Pink, no streakiness, even though it’s not a shade I’d buy.

I was looking for a pigmented glosses to wear this summer. I read your reviews and looked at some swatches on youtube for WOC and purchased Vintage, Sepia, Warm Bronze and Petal Pink. I love the shades. I will be traveling next week and plan to just bring glosses. Thanks for your reviews.

I recently purchased Metallic Rose and Petal, am I’m really enjoying them. I think they are good bang for your buck. Might have to go back for Rio!

The term “self-level” in your comments for Rio above. Hmmm, I think I may have learned a new word today.
Does “self-level” here mean that due to its inherent textural and chemical composition, the gloss quits at the border of the lips without getting messy around the edges?

It may look a little uneven or streaky initially, but the liquid seems to smooth and even out after some time has passed (like in nail polish, that’s usually as it dries down, while in gloss, that’s probably a result of how it warms up against the lips). It’s almost like the opposite of when a lip product sinks into lip lines.
