NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set

NARS A Woman's Face Lip Set
NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set

NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set ($49.00 for 0.188 oz.) includes a lipstick, lip pencil, and lip liner coordinated in the hue of warm plum. These are all permanent shades, so if you like one, you could grab it individually. The set coordinates well, so they can be layered easily; what’s nice is that the lipstick is a sheerer, glossier version of the pencil and lip liner, which means it adds a more hydrating element to the trio.

Dolca Vita (Lipstick) is a muted, medium-dark plummy red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It is part of the Sheer Lipstick range, so it is, as you might expect, on the sheerer side. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lightweight, somewhat slippery consistency that is thin and looks and feels more like a light lip balm than traditional lipstick. It applied evenly with smooth color that looked a lot like a lip stain (but this shade may not appear like much on those with naturally redder or darker lips). The color lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Tarte Punch (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Praise (LE, $24.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip (DC, $22.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is more pigmented, glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Irresistible (P, $32.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Clinique Black Honey (P, $15.00) is cooler (85% similar). Chanel Noir Moderne (128) (P, $37.00) is cooler (85% similar). Givenchy Moka Imprime (304) (P, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Amor Prohibido (LE, $17.50) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dolca Vita (Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety feel applied to the lips, so it didn’t tug and glided across easily. This is a pencil you’ll need to sharpen, which is sometimes a deal-breaker. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Sucker (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Mrs. (LE, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Double Dare (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Too Faced Bachelorette (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Nectar (P, $28.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Walk This Way (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Patong Beach (Velvet Lip Liner) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, but it is buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The Velvet Lip Liner formula is supposed to be “pigment-rich” while filling and preventing feathering on the lips with “long-wearing, comfortable wear.” I find that they tend to be a little dry so they tug on the lips, and while not the most drying lip pencil, it’s not comfortable on its own for me. It is clingy and lightly to moderately drying, even though it does last for six hours. MAC Half-Red (P, $17.50) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty #032 (P, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D OG Lolita (P, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Medium-Dark/Deep Dark Strobing Kit

ColourPop Medium-Dark/Deep Dark Strobing Kit
ColourPop Medium-Dark/Deep Dark Strobing Kit

ColourPop Medium-Dark/Deep Dark Strobing Kit ($39.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes three Super Shock Cheek shades and three Lippie Stix shades. It is designed for darker skin, though two shades overlap with the kit for lighter skin tones (Parasol and Thistle) — I would have loved for them to have not repeated personally! The products are of good quality or better, and they’re easy to use, work well, and wear nicely.

Stryke is described as a “rusty red with copper and gold highlights.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery–red with warm undertones and a soft, golden shimmer. It had good color payoff and a natural finish that didn’t emphasize pores or look too flat. The consistency was creamy without being too wet or tacky, and it blended easily on the skin. This shade wore well for ten hours on me. NARS Na Pali Coast (P, $39.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 18 (P, $62.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (95% similar). MAC Make You Mine (P, $23.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Bardot (LE, $8.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Becca Maui Nights (P, $38.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar).

Avalon is described as a “true golden bronze with golden pink duochrome finish.” It’s a medium-dark copper with warm, orange-red undertones and a frosted sheen that shifts from gold to pink subtly. It had great pigmentation and lasted nine hours on me. MAC Glorify (LE, $33.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Worldly Wealth (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Ibiza (P, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Magnetic Appeal (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon (LE, $42.00) is darker (90% similar).

Makeup Revolution Rock on World (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Becca Blushed Copper (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 14 (P, $62.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Viseart Highlight #3 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Parasol is described as a “soft peachy gold.” It’s a light-medium, golden copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted sheen. It had buildable coverage, up to mostly opaque, that goes on sheerer when applied with fluffier brushes and more opaque with denser brushes or fingertips. The texture was smooth, blendable, and never sticky on the skin, as it dries down quickly to more of a powder-like product (so it is still blendable). It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Geller Ballerina (P, $26.00)(90% similar). Colour Pop Bae Area (P, $8.00) is darker (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Toasty is described as a “dirty pink nude in a creme finish.” It’s a muted, medium plum with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a creamy, glide-on texture that applied even, smooth color and never dragged. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Chanel Scenario (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Praise (LE, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Guerlain Forever Brown (305) (P, $37.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Promenade is described as a “deep red blackberry in a sheer finish.” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer coverage, which is by design, and lasted for four hours–it had a more stained-like appearance on me–with light hydration. Tom Ford Beauty La Piscine (LE, $36.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Emotion (92) (LE, $37.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Rapture (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Recit (212) (P, $37.00) is cooler (85% similar). Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is brighter (85% similar).

Thistle is described as a “warm peachy nude in a creme finish.” It’s a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a glossy shine. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a light-medium weight to it–thicker and more noticeable on than other shades, but I wouldn’t call it heavy or goopy by any means. The color wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time. Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $32.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Sweet Maple (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Fresh and Frisky (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented (90% similar).

Chanel La Merveilleuse Rouge Allure Velvet & Rouge Noir Rouge Allure Lipsticks

Chanel La Merveilleuse (347) Rouge Allure Velvet
Chanel La Merveilleuse (347) Rouge Allure Velvet

Chanel La Merveilleuse (347) Rouge Allure Velvet ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “intense raspberry red.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with subtle blue undertones that ends up appearing almost warm-toned. It had a mostly matte finish. The texture was velvety smooth and glided right on with even, mostly opaque color payoff. It was comfortable to wear for four hours, and then it felt a little drying for the next two (six hours in total). Urban Decay Alpha (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Dangerously Red (P, $17.50) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC All Fired Up (P, $17.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC To Matte with Love (P, $21.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar).

Chane Rouge Noir (109) Rouge Allure ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “black red.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and a natural shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightweight, creamy consistency that never tugged while applying. It was, however, a little streaky at times, and the lack of opacity seemed to emphasize that. On me, the color wore four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. I didn’t experience feathering, but those who are more prone to it, this one seemed to have enough slip that I would consider using it with a liner. MAC Runner (LE, $17.50) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Liquorice (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Manbun (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). Maybelline Divine Wine (P, $7.99) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar).

ColourPop Fair/Medium Strobing Kit

ColourPop Fair/Medium Strobing Kit
ColourPop Fair/Medium Strobing Kit

ColourPop Fair/Medium Strobing Kit ($39.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes three Super Shock Cheek shades and three Lippie Stix. This is one of two kits (the other is for Medium Dark/Deep Dark skin tones).

Fanny Pack is described as a “silvery white pearl.” It’s a bright white with very subtle golden shimmer. I was surprised that it didn’t look chalky or powdery on my skin tone–it seemed workable–and I can only imagine how lovely it will be for those who are fairer and prefer shimmer without addition of color in their highlighters. The texture is smooth, lightly creamy, and blendable on the skin. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on me. It has good, buildable color coverage–pretty much in line with how it is marketed–that can be applied with fingertips for more opacity or applied with a synthetic or duo fiber brush for sheerer coverage. NYX Liquid Prism (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Ciate Rainbow (P, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Moon Glow (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Luminous (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Moonlight White #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Metal Moon (P, $34.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Shimmer Highlight (P, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is more muted (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Ever Glow Lights (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Rosy Glow (Right) (P, ) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 1 Arctic White (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). Tarte Glow (Tarteist) (LE, ) is less shimmery (85% similar). NYX Ritualistic (P, $9.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Non-Fiction is described as a “warm pink with gold and copper highlights.” It’s a medium, reddish-copper with warm gold and pink shimmer. It had opaque coverage applied with fingertips and semi-opaque, buildable coverage applied with a flat, synthetic brush. It looks more shimmery in the pot/swatch than it does blended out on the cheek, where it ultimately has a natural finish–a skin-like glow but not overt shimmer. It wore well for nine hours. Milani Coral Beams (P, $13.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Make You Mine (P, $23.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Bronzed (P, $6.50) is less shimmery (95% similar). Milani Bronze Burst (P, $13.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Stryke (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $27.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Divergent Obscure Coral (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Fervor (Right) (P, ) is darker (90% similar). NARS Cheek Studio III (LE, $30.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Sea Me, Hear Me (LE, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). NYX Rose Quartz (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Clinique Fig Pop (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Drop of a Hat (LE, $8.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar).

Fenty Beauty Ginger Binge (P, $34.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Parasol is described as a “soft peachy gold.” It’s a light-medium, golden copper with warm, orange undertones and a frosted sheen. It had buildable coverage, up to mostly opaque, that goes on sheerer when applied with fluffier brushes and more opaque with denser brushes or fingertips. The texture was smooth, blendable, and never sticky on the skin, as it dries down quickly to more of a powder-like product (so it is still blendable). It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Geller Ballerina (P, $26.00)(90% similar). Colour Pop Bae Area (P, $8.00) is darker (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Fame is described as a “pale warm nude in a creme sheer finish.” It is a light pink with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones with a soft shine. It looks peach in the tube, but it swatches pink, and it is absolutely maddening! It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, moderately slippery consistency that glided on but looked a little streaky at times and showed “lines” if you pressed your lips together. It wore well for three and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Flair for Finery (LE, $17.50) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Catty (LE, $17.50) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Sublime Pleasure (LE, $17.50) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). YSL Nude Beige (1) (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Thistle is described as a “warm peachy nude in a creme finish.” It’s a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a glossy shine. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a light-medium weight to it–thicker and more noticeable on than other shades, but I wouldn’t call it heavy or goopy by any means. The color wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time. Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $32.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar).

Marmalade is described as a “warm rosy pink in a creme finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had nearly opaque coverage with a creamy, glide-on texture that sat well on lips and was comfortable to wear. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn. Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Pink Chocolate (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar).

ColourPop Back to Cool Lippie Stix Set

ColourPop Back to Cool Lippie Stix Set ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes six full-sized Lippie Stix for fall. All six are exclusive to the set, and the set is limited edition. It’s another set full of mostly matte/satin type shades with good color payoff and long-wear. A few shades were a bit drying towards the end of wear, which was the only “big” issue I had.

Baewatch is described as a “dusty rose in a matte finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark pinky plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightly creamy, glide-on consistency that didn’t tug but doesn’t slide around either. It wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Choker is described as a “light cool-toned beige in a creme finish.” It’s a light, rosy beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage with just a little of the natural lip coming through. The color was creamy with a light tackiness that lasted for four hours on me. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Clouds in My Coffee (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals Nudist (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Sexpot (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Mosh Pit is described as a “mid-tone warm brown in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nice color coverage that applied beautifully–smooth, even color–without tugging on the lips. The consistency had just enough slip not to tug, but it adheres well to the lip so wear time is longer at six hours. It was a smidgen drying after four hours of wear.

Out of Sync is described as a “bright blue fuchsia in a matte finish.” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was a little drier than the other shades but not too stiff–it doesn’t glide across perfectly, though. On me, it was still going strong after six hours of wear but was somewhat drying after four hours. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Just My Type (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $17.50) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Full Fuchsia (P, $17.50) is darker, glossier (95% similar).

TGIF is described as a “true brick red in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish.

It had semi-opaque color payoff with a firmer, stiffer texture. It still managed to apply evenly, but it does drag and skip across the lips at times. The color lasted for six hours strong but was drying. Urban Decay After Dark (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery, glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Afterdark (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret

NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret
NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret

NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret ($160.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes five full-sized Audacious Lipsticks held in a hefty, mirrored case with a velvet-lined interior (that has indentations where the lipsticks fit) that can be removed to just use the case in its full capacity. All five lipstick shades are part of the permanent range. Audacious Lipsticks retail for $32 each (or $160.00 for five), so this set is only “worth it” if you’re looking for the packaging, but otherwise, you might as well pick your personal five favorite shades. The quality of all five seemed exactly the same as the full-sized versions, which is quite high–soft, smooth, creamy consistencies with good pigmentation, comfortable wear and moderate wear-time. I don’t personally find it to be a very hydrating formula, but it isn’t drying either. You can see my round-up on the Audacious Lipstick formula here. I’ve swatched and re-tested the five shades as they were included in this set.

Raquel is described as a “pink beige.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a creamy, natural finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage, but it is one of the creamier, more slippery shades in the range, so it doesn’t apply as well as the majority of the range does as a result. It doesn’t apply badly, it just shows lines more readily and is harder to keep looking even. It lasted for almost four hours on me and was lightly moisturizing. Bobbi Brown Pink Sand (P, $35.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). bareMinerals Dream Big (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Adrienne (402) (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Enchanted One (LE, $17.50) is less glossy (90% similar).

Chanel Catherine (410) (P, $37.00) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Barbara (P, $34.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC French Twist (LE, $17.50) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.50) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

Juliette is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a bright, pink-coral with a satin finish. The consistency was light-medium in weight, creamy, and glided on easily.

Anna is described as a “smokey rose.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff that went on smoothly without tugging.

Charlotte is described as an “oxblood burgundy.” It’s a dark, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a light shine. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered well without looking streaky.
