Black Coffee

Bite Beauty Black Coffee French Press Lip Gloss ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there micro-shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage that applied smoothly but sank into my lip lines with moderate shine. From afar, the shine helped to minimize the appearance of the color settling into my lip lines but not entirely, so one’s tolerance for that will really come into play. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and a touch tacky but not heavy or uncomfortable to wear. It wore well for five hours and was very hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.15 oz. - $146.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as a mix of "milky nudes to bold browns with full-on color." They are supposed to be "comfortable, cushiony" with a "sweet, mocha flavor" and scent. There are six shades, and they semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage, and some were buildable as two layers were still comfortable to wear. The texture was lightweight, creamy so the color spread well across my lips, but there was a light level of tackiness that helped keep the gloss in place. The shades wore between four and five hours on me, but they were all extremely hydrating while worn and over time. Some shades applied beautifully with little to no settling or streaking, but a couple of shades pulled into my lip lines more noticeably.

Red District

NARS Red District Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, deep red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a glossy shine. It had good color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without settling in my lip lines. It was one of the best-applying cream finish shades in the range. The texture was smooth, light-medium in thickness with light tackiness, but it was very comfortable to wear. The gloss wore well for six hours and was lightly moisturizing on me.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.17 oz. - $152.94 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "patent shine" and "high-octane color," which is further translated into "mirror-like shine" and "intense color" and has a "moisturizing feel." The applicator is made with two distinct sides; one side "features a reservoir to deposit the ideal amount of color" (it's slightly indented) and the other side "evenly distributes the formula." I actually felt that the applicator often over-applied the product, and I'd expect someone with thinner lips may find they need to wipe some off prior to applying to their lips.

The texture was plush, moderate in thickness but lighter weight (not heavy but I knew I was wearing gloss) and had light to moderate tackiness, which became more noticeable over time. I felt that the shimmery shades applied the best--more even, better coverage, and sat well on my lips--while the cream shades were inconsistent though often quite pigmented. The lighter cream shades (like Santo Domingo) almost appeared bubbled on my lips, not streaky or uneven per se, but the finish wasn't as flattering or as smooth as it was for deeper, richer hues (like Red District). Both finishes were very shiny--dare I say, mirror-like!--and glossy.

Most shades were pigmented, and the majority lasted at least four hours with some lasting as long as six hours on me. The formula was comfortable to wear and lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They were scented with something sweet and syrupy, not typical vanilla, but didn't seem to have a discernible taste to me.

Beach Bum

Becca Beach Bum Glow Gloss ($22.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a deep peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage that applied without streaking along the edges, but there was slight color that gathered in my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, almost cream-like, and lightweight with a high-shine finish. This shade lasted well for four hours and was hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.18 oz. - $122.22 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have the "shine of a lip gloss" with the "pigment of a liquid lipstick" and the "nourishing benefits of a lip balm." It's more like a semi-sheer to semi-opaque lip gloss with a lightly to moderately hydrating formula based on the three shades I tried out (there are 10 in total). The formula has a sweet mint scent but no discernible taste to me (with a slight tingle that doesn't last for long). The texture was lightweight, smooth, and balm-like that wasn't tacky and comfortable to wear.

Conquest

NARS Conquest Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but I felt like the applicator actually over-applied the product so the texture felt a bit heavier and a little closer to glue-like, though not quite. I was able to spread the color well across my lips, and there was very little settling into my lip lines (which wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance), but there were slight “bubbles” across my lips where I could see through the coverage. I had to be careful getting this on my teeth, too, as it took awhile before that stopped happening. The gloss lasted well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Bite Beauty French Press French Press Lip Gloss ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly on my lips with a lightweight, lightly tacky texture that sat well on my lips and felt comfortable. There was a very small amount of color that sat in my lips but wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The gloss lasted well for five hours on me and was hydrating over time.

Baden Baden

NARS Baden Baden Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t opaque and with the thickness of the texture, I wouldn’t recommend a second layer as it would feel quite heavy and have a lot of movement. The gloss pulled into my lip lines and did not appear as even as other shades (made more apparent by the lack of opacity). It was moderately tacky but comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted for as it was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.17 oz. - $152.94 Per Ounce
