Indimenticabile

MAC Indimenticabile Lipgloss Trio ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a coral-red, pink-red, and dark plum gloss housed in a small compact. Some love lip products in pans while others find they are more work than they’re worth, but I think the quality of the glosses was nice enough assuming tackiness is not a deal-breaker!

My Moon

MAC My Moon Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains a shimmery, warm white and a deep, matt black. The textures of the two were a bit more dramatic in difference, so I did not find the matte black to go over the shimmery white as well as it could have. This was the result of the shimmery white being chunkier and flakier, so it did not have an even texture on the skin.

Nose Pose

MAC Nose Pose Cream Colour Base Duo ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) seems to be a highlighting/contouring duo, but of course, it’s very “one-size” and will certainly not fit all or even most. The darker side seemed more like a bronzing color than a contouring one, though some with very warm complexions may prefer the warmth in the deeper shade for contouring. They can also be used on the eyes, as the formula is a multi-use one.

Muse

NARS Muse Photogloss Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for oz.) is a bright, medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling finish. It had medium coverage with lots of shimmer in both fine and medium sizes. The gloss could have spread more evenly across the lips, and I did have trouble with a bit of the color sinking into my lip lines. It was certainly wearable on its own but may be better layered over another lip color. The consistency was light-medium in weight with some tackiness present. It lasted for four and a half hours on me but was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.18 oz. - $144.44 Per Ounce

The Photogloss Lip Lacquer formula is supposed to have "saturated color" with "high-shine." All four shades had medium or greater coverage with a light-medium thickness and a fair amount of tackiness, which helped them last longer (four to five hours) and stay in place better. They did not seem to have any scent or taste from what I could discern. The formula was lightly hydrating over time.

Psycho

Urban Decay Psycho Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-red with cool, blue undertones and faint, iridescent pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and a second layer could be applied to make it opaque. The consistency was thin, almost watery, but it applied evenly on the lips. After the liquid lipstick dried down, it appeared smooth and did not emphasize the lines on my lips. This shade lasted for seven hours but was somewhat drying after four hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.17 oz. - $105.88 Per Ounce

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them.

They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.
