Tom Ford Beauty Connor Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a vibrant, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging, but the color adhered well to the lips and did not move around easily when worn. On me, it lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Lips & Boys Lip Color formula is not different from the full-sized Lip Color range; they offer a travel-sized version (which is actually cheaper by the ounce: $36.00/0.07 oz. or $514.29/oz. compared to the full-size at $54.00/0.10 oz. or $540.00/oz. The formula is supposed to have an "ultra-creamy texture" and "pure color" with a "balance of luminosity." The range has a fair amount of variation as the finishes differ (matte to metallic), so coverage can be medium to full with some shades applying well and others decently. The wear was anywhere from three hours to over six hours. In general, the formula has a creamy texture that's easy to work with, comfortable to wear, and is lightly to moderately hydrating. They have a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Tom Ford Beauty Alain Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, medium red with cool, pink undertones and fine fuchsia and pink pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips with a lightly creamy texture that had moderate slip but did not slide around or feather while worn. This shade lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

The Lips & Boys Lip Color formula is not different from the full-sized Lip Color range; they offer a travel-sized version (which is actually cheaper by the ounce: $36.00/0.07 oz. or $514.29/oz. compared to the full-size at $54.00/0.10 oz. or $540.00/oz. The formula is supposed to have an "ultra-creamy texture" and "pure color" with a "balance of luminosity." The range has a fair amount of variation as the finishes differ (matte to metallic), so coverage can be medium to full with some shades applying well and others decently.

Nightfall

Chanel Nightfall Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had very subtle pearl–the kind that yielded more of a noticeable sheen than a true frost or shimmery finish. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and velvety so it never tugged on the lips and was comfortable to apply and to wear. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, and the color applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. This shade lasted for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on my lips.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. - $308.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge Allure Velvet formula is supposed to be a "non-drying matte lipstick" with "intensely rich, long-wearing colour" and has a "velvet matte finish." Over time, I felt like the formula has improved and is actually non-drying (the original launch did not wear well on me) to lightly drying (seen more in shades that have lasted six to eight hours). The pigmentation varies from shade to shade but is usually semi-opaque to opaque with a semi-matte to satin finish. The texture had a velvety, glide-on feel that doesn't feel particularly creamy or wet, yet the lipstick is comfortable to wear over the four to six hours it typically lasts for. Like most Chanel lip products, they have a rosy scent but no discernible taste.

Chanel Experimental Rouge Coco Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium coral-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly with thin, lightweight color that was comfortable to wear and easy to apply. The lipstick was smooth, creamy without being slippery, and lasted for four hours on me. It left a very faint stain behind and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. - $308.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge Coco formula is supposed to have "full coverage with a creamy yet lightweight finish" that is also hydrating. The coverage was semi-sheer to semi-opaque with the occasional shade being closer to full coverage, but it would not be a formula I'd recommend to someone looking for truly opaque pigmentation out of their lip color. Where the formula excels is in the more luminous finish--a soft sheen without the slipperiness of a gloss--that often is forgiving on the lips. The texture is lightweight, smooth, and comfortable to wear and to apply. The formula ranged from lightly hydrating to lightly drying with most somewhere between non-drying and lightly hydrating. The lipstick lasted two to four hours on me but reapplies well. They have a rosy scent but no discernible taste.

Liquorice

Bite Beauty Liquorice Matte Crème Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a moderate shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied decently but could have been a little more even–there were areas where the color seemed almost grainy and a little patchy to my eye along with a minor amount of color that sank into my lip lines. The crayon had a moderately emollient, creamy texture that was easy to glide across the lips but a lip liner or lip brush would be recommended for crisper edges. On me, the color lasted for five and a half hours, left a subtle stain behind, and was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.05 oz. - $480.00 Per Ounce

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon is supposed to be “long-wearing,” hydrating, and pigmented. It’s one of my favorite formulas for really pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable color that is more matte, though I wouldn’t describe them as a true or flat matte. There is a slight shine to them that wears down within an hour or so of wear (as you’d expect for most semi-matte to satin finish lipsticks). They come in a twist-up, large pencil format that makes it fairly easy to get precise edges and even coverage. The formula has a slightly herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste to me.

Dangerous Liaison

Charlotte Tilbury Dangerous Liaison Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, and the color applied evenly on the lips. The texture was airy, thin, and mousse-like, so it did not feel like it slid around when worn and was easy to keep the product even along the edges of my lips. This was one of the more flattering shades and was more forgiving with respect to my lip lines. On me, it lasted for five hours and was neither drying nor hydratnig.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.24 oz. - $141.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as having the glide "like a gloss" with a "soft-focus matte" finish that will "nurture your lips like a cream" while having "full coverage." The texture of the formula was mousse-like without a lot of slip or wetness; it definitely felt more velvety and smooth with an airy quality to its "thickness." The color spread comfortably across the lips and typically yielded semi-opaque to opaque coverage that went on evenly but sometimes settled into my lip lines.

I did not find them to be particularly long-wearing--more like a standard bullet lipstick than a more traditional liquid lipstick, which was likely due to the fact that these never fully set or dried down on me. They had a semi-matte to satin finish that wore down to a matte finish (after two to three hours). The wear ranged from three to five hours on me and was fairly comfortable, though I would not describe the formula as hydrating.

The applicator is supposed to be like a stiletto heel, and it had a very steep angle that I did not find hugged my lips as well as the brand seemed to design it to--there are a lot of other doe-foot-like applicators that are more curved now to hug the lips that have been easier to use. The steepness of Charlotte Tilbury's applicator is what made it harder to apply for me, and I ended up using the other side for a lot of my upper lip.

The formula had a sweet, vanilla scent that was slightly noticeable on the lips but no discernible taste.
