Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color

Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that glided on the lips without tugging but wasn’t too thick or too slippery, so it didn’t slide around or feel heavy on.

Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange Luxe Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a glossy shine.

Bobbi Brown Your Majesty Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “Bordeaux red.” It’s a muted, dark burgundy red with warm, brown undertones and a glossy finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a very emollient consistency. The formula applied easily on the lips and never tugged, but it was slippery enough that I did have some feathering after four hours of wear. The color lasted well for closer to six hours on me and left a stain behind. I found the formula hydrating and comfortable to wear overall. It was one of the better-applying formulas I have tried in this color. Bite Beauty Mulled Maple (LE, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty #001 (Reformulation) (LE, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar).

YSL Black Red (71) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way. The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer-wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on (it’s no Dior/Chanel-level scent!). In general, I like Bobbi Brown’s lipstick formulas, and this one feels creamier and more hydrating than others, but for pigmentation, you can’t go wrong with this or the Rich Lip Color formula.

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and this is their Matte finish, which is supposed to be pigmented, matte, and long-wearing. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, velvety consistency that glided on and had a light-medium weight to it. The color lasted for five and a half hours on me, and it left behind a soft, fuchsia stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me. It had MAC’s signature vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Bobbi Brown Parisian Red Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “true yellow red.” It’s a bright, medium red with warm, yellow undertones and a glossy finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation with a very creamy, more emollient consistency (compared to the rest of the formula) that applied well without streaking. I didn’t have any issues with feathering/bleeding, but it has enough slip that it could be a concern for those who experience those issues more often.

Bite Beauty Kir Royale Luminous Creme Lipstick
Bite Beauty Kir Royale Luminous Creme Lipstick

Bite Beauty Kir Royale Luminous Creme Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “bold wine/berry.” It’s a bold, medium-dark pinky-red with very subtle ruby micro-shimmer and a natural sheen. Estee Lauder Thrilling (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Emma (LE, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC By Special Order (LE, $17.50) is lighter (90% similar).

MAC Bloodstone (LE, $17.50) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Luminous Creme formula is supposed to be “lush, long-lasting, moisture-rich lip color.” It had nearly opaque coverage, but there’s a veil of translucency, as my lip freckle still peeks through slightly. The consistency feels light-to-medium in weight–noticeable but not heavy–with moderate creaminess. It is less emollient comapred to some of the other shades in the Luminous Creme range, and it doesn’t slide around. The color held on well for six hours and left behind a stain. I found the formula comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating over time. It has Bite’s sweet, lemony scent, but I didn’t notice much taste with it.

This is sold out and has been for at least a few days (and probably far longer still). I deeply apologize for not being able to review this sooner, and this review is up mostly for dupes at this point. In happier news, it only took Bite ten months to finally label the bottom of the lipstick tube itself with the number. The formula was mostly opaque with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that adhered well without being clingy. It wore well for five hours on me and left a slight stain behind, but it was neither drying nor hydrating. It has a light, sweet, lemony scent and a very slightly sweet taste.
