Charlotte Tilbury Amazing Grace Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly velvety consistency that didn’t drag on lips, but it had a thinner feel and clung a bit.

Charlotte Tilbury Lost Cherry Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This may be the closest one gets to a “cool” coral, even though is still warm-toned (kind of like a “warmer” blue). It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, velvety texture that glided across lips easily. The color lasted for five hours, wore well, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Charlotte Tilbury Sexy Sienna Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peach-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish–there are teeny, tiny shimmers in it to my eye.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “buildable, hydrating formula” that has a “modern-matte” finish. The texture has a more velvety consistency (think silicone-based face primers) that feels smooth and lightly creamy, but it is thinner and fairly lightweight. I find they cling slightly, but not in an uncomfortable way, with wear time that ranges from four to six hours. Some shades are drying, others are hydrating, and it seems to vary from shade to shade for me. The formula has a lightly sweet, vanilla-like scent but no discernible taste. They tend to be mostly opaque, and I wouldn’t describe them as buildable–just semi- to mostly opaque.

Anastasia’s Liquid Lipstick is supposed to be “ultra-saturated” and “deliver an intense shot of matte pigment in one easy swipe” that will “stay put for hours.” It’s one of my least favorite Liquid Lipstick formulas, as it has a really long drying time and is a drying formula overall. Midnight had good color coverage with a slightly thin consistency that seemed thicker than other Anastasia shades but thinner than Paint. It takes about ten minutes to dry down and fully set, and it remains fairly transfer-resistant for the six hours it wears, but it does fade unevenly from the center of the lip for me. I also get slight “cracking” once I smile as the formula clings noticeably. It was somewhat drying after three hours of wear.

MAC Brave Red Lipstick
MAC Brave Red Lipstick

MAC Brave Red Lipstick ($30.00 for TBA oz.) is described as a “bright yellow red [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a medium, cherry red with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage that applied evenly. The consistency is lightly creamy, particularly once it softens against the warmth of the lips. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and left behind a light stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me. This shade is part of the permanent range, so if you prefer to pay less and don’t mind standard packaging, that might be the way to go. MAC Everyday Diva (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Oblivion (LE, $17.50) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Ultrarose (257) (LE, $37.00) is cooler (95% similar). Edward Bess Eternal Passion (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar).

MAC Ethereal Orchid Lipstick ($30.00 for TBA oz.) is described as a “mid-tone dirty coral [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a muted, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage, so there was translucency to the color that allowed the natural lip color to come through. The consistency was thin and a little clingy, and it only lasted two hours. It was a little drying on me, which is my typical experience with this type of finish. Marc Jacobs Beauty Understudy (114) (DC, $30.00) is lighter, more pigmented (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Zenith Lipstick ($30.00 for TBA oz.) is described as a “light nude [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium, rosy brown with warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. Lustres are typically sheerer and thinner in consistency, but this had a thicker texture (but not thick) and semi-opaque coverage. It was more slippery and comfortable to wear as it didn’t cling, though wear time was only two and a half hours. NARS Little Darling (DC, $28.00) is less pigmented (95% similar). Hourglass Believer (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Nudist (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Anastasia Paint Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Paint Liquid Lipstick
Anastasia Paint Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Paint Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, navy blue with lighter, brighter navy blue pearl paired with a matte finish (more like a “matte frost”). MAC Designer Blue (P, $17.50) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Reverb (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Jellies (DC, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). NYX Sinful (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, glossier (85% similar). Smashbox Iced Out (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (80% similar). Illamasqua Disciple (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia’s Liquid Lipstick is supposed to be “ultra-saturated” and “deliver an intense shot of matte pigment in one easy swipe” that will “stay put for hours.” It’s one of my least favorite Liquid Lipstick formulas, as it has a really long drying time and is a drying formula overall. Paint takes ten minutes to set, and if I eat/drink anything, it really disintegrates quickly (a lot of Liquid Lipsticks hold up pretty well after a meal or drinking water), but this doesn’t seem to be as transfer-resistant as other shades I’ve tried in the formula. It had good color payoff, but it wasn’t fully opaque without a second layer, which is doable with the longer dry-down time. The texture is light-medium with more of a mousse-like feel compared to a lot of liquid lipsticks (including shades I tried from the initial launch of the formula), which have a thinner, more watery or “runny” feel during application. I wish it applied more evenly as well, so I would recommend applying with a lip brush or applying a second coat (kind of like a polish). It lasted for six hours in total but was somewhat drying after three hours of wear.

This is a new, limited edition shade that is available in full-size but can also be had if you have 250 points at Sephora (also includes a mini Lipgloss and mirror). The Luminous Creme Lipstick formula is a definite favorite; it is typically pigmented, long-wearing, hydrating, and easy to apply. Mimosa is no exception! It’s a lovely formula that feels comfortable to wear for the six and a half hours it lasts (and there is a residual stain left behind as it wears away). The lipstick glides on with its moderately creamy consistency and never tugs while depositing even, near-opaque color. There’s a light, fruit-y scent but no taste.
