Marc Jacobs Beauty So Sofia (236) Le Marc Lip Creme

Marc Jacobs Beauty So Sofia (236) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “electric watermelon.” It’s a bright, medium coral-pink with a satin finish. It had rich, fully opaque pigmentation that glided on without tugging for smooth, even coverage. The texture was creamy enough to feel comfortable during application, but it didn’t slide around. The color wore well for six hours but was a little drying. Marc Jacobs Beauty Core Cora (234) (P, $30.00) is cooler. Chanel La Malicieuse (46) (P, $34.00) is cooler.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Je t’aime (238) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rum raspberry.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pink-coral with a very subtle shimmer to it over a satin finish. It had good color payoff paired with a lightly creamy consistency that sat on the lips well and didn’t tug during application. The color wore for five and a half hours and was a little drying over time. Bite Beauty Corvina (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter. NARS Grace (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter.

Formula Summary: Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) claims 10-hour wear with “vivid pigment” and a “rich, velvety” texture that is “ultra-hydrating.” As you might expect, they don’t last ten hours; they last four to six hours with some leaving a stain. The texture is lightweight, creamy, and glides on without dragging or tugging on the lip, but it doesn’t have a lot of slip so it stays in place. The formula isn’t hydrating, and it can be drying, depending on the shade. The lipstick has a sweet, floral scent, but it is very subtle, even when smelled directly from the tube.

MAC x Giambattista Valli Lipsticks

MAC Bianca B Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pale white-pink [with a Matte finish].” It is a brightened, very light pink with a strong, white base and a mostly matte finish. It applied without tugging on the lips, but it pulled and separated into every lip line. It’s a product that really needs a primer or heavier lip pencil base and then applied with a lip brush to minimize some of the application issues. The lipstick lasted for five hours, but it was somewhat drying and settled into lip lines more and more as the color wore on. MAC Weekend 1 (LE, $16.00) is more muted, warmer.

MAC Eugenie Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dark cherry with blue undertone [with a Matte finish].” It is a deepened, purpled wine with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that tended to pull into lip lines and emphasized the natural texture of the lips. The consistency seemed smooth and creamy enough not to tug, but it just didn’t look that way once on. It lasted for over six hours but was drying and settled into lip lines. MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Kat Von D Motorhead (P, $21.00) is warmer. Bite Beauty Bordeaux (P, $28.00) is glossier. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is lighter.

Charlotte Tilbury Velvet Underground (P, $32.00) is cooler, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: MAC Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) has a variety of finishes, which results in color coverage, finish, comfort, wear, and texture to vary from finish to finish. Lustres tend to be sheer to semi-sheer with a thin, slippery consistency and wear one to three hours; they are lightly to moderately drying on me, despite their slip. Cremesheens typically have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, wear an average of four hours, are sometimes drying and sometimes not drying, and have a light shine to their finish. Amplifieds have a light sheen, opaque coverage, slightly thicker consistency but is less “heavy” in look compared to satins; they are typically not drying but not hydrating and can wear four to six hours. Satins have less sheen compared to Amplifieds but have similar coverage and wear. Mattes, particularly newer iterations of the finish, have a velvety, silicone-like consistency that makes them easier to apply without drag, and they typically have opaque coverage and wear four to six hours, but they can be drying. Retro Mattes are ultra-matte with a very flat, nearly no-sheen finish, and they are often stiffer in the tube but thinner in consistency compared to satins or mattes; they are often drying but wear four to eight hours. All MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented with no discernible taste.

Besame American Beauty & Besame Red Classic Color Lipsticks

Besame American Beauty 1945 Lipstick
Besame American Beauty 1945 Lipstick

Besame Classic Color Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) recently popped up on Sephora with six shades, and I bought two of them to try out. The formula is supposed to have a “satin, matte finish that delivers full coverage in one coat.” It also is supposed to “leave lips feeling soft and hydrated.” Both of these were pigmented, comfortable to wear, and long-wearing. They’re not ultra-hydrating, but they were lightly moisturizing to the point where after six hours, my lips still felt good (no need to rush for the balm). The consistency is lightweight and thin but still yielded good coverage and glided on without pulling on the lips. I didn’t have any color that bled or feathered outside of my natural lip line (though I am not prone to either, but I have experience both occasionally). The formula had a sweet, vanilla scent to it but no discernible taste.

Besame American Beauty 1945 Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “cool berry red.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark red with cool, raspberry undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque coverage (you can just barely see my lip freckle peeking through) that applied evenly and smoothly. The color lasted for six and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time. Clinique Cherry Pop (P, $18.00) is lighter. MAC Stunner (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Anastasia American Doll (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Ruby Rush (07) (P, $50.00) is lighter, warmer. NARS Deadly Catch (LE, $26.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Hexagram (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy. MAC Frank-n-furter (LE, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. Chanel La Desiree (327) (LE, $34.00) is warmer. Chanel Rouge Byzantin (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Just a Bite (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Besame Besame Red 1920 Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “true red with a cooler, blue-toned base.” It’s a brightened, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had full color coverage that applied with smooth, even color without dragging or tugging on the lips. The texture was lightly creamy but didn’t slide around (but it isn’t transfer-proof). It was comfortable to wear during the six hour period it lasted. MAC MAC Red (P, $16.00) is darker. Chanel La Precieuse (317) (LE, $34.00) is warmer. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $16.00) is less glossy. MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Deadly Catch (LE, $26.00) is darker. MAC Ruby (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier. Kat Von D Hexagram (P, $21.00) is more muted, less glossy. Too Faced Melted Ruby (P, $21.00) is glossier. Anastasia American Doll (P, $20.00) is warmer, less glossy. MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Opera (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Ruby Rush (07) (P, $50.00) is warmer. MAC Kinky (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Outlaw (P, $19.00) is warmer, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Craving Coral Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, though there was a hint of my lip freckle still visible, so your natural lip color may still come through. It was lightly creamy and sat well on the lips, while the color wore for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Flame (06) (P, $50.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Strange Journey (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Marlene (P, $32.00) is more muted, glossier. Kat Von D Countess (P, $21.00) is brighter. Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is brighter, glossier.

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

Maybelline Divine Wine Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a deepened, slightly muted, dark burgundy with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, though not totally opaque, that went on smoothly and evenly and didn’t pull into lip lines. This shade stayed on for six hours and wasn’t drying. Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Cherry (08) (P, $50.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Diva (P, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to “deliver a burst of bold lip color” with a “creamy texture” and a matte finish. In general, the formula has good color payoff with a velvety, creamy consistency that covers evenly and most shades seem to make lips appear smoother but some shades were prone to pulling into lip lines as the color wore away. The big thing about these is that they have a mostly matte finish and are more comfortable to wear than many matte formulas due to the velvety feel (almost like a silicone primer, but not quite as heavy and not clingy). The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me. It had a sweet, plastic-like scent but no taste.
