Tom Ford Beauty Loulou Boys & Girls Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin. It was hydrating over time but had a tendency to pull into my lip lines. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and left a slight stain behind.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Ultra-Rich Lip Color formula is supposed to have "full-coverage" and "high-shine" that "moisturizers lips instantly." The majority of the range had semi-opaque coverage with a few being sheerer and some with more full coverage. The finish was more luminous--shiny but not glossy or heavy--which meant they had moderate slip, so they tended to wear around four hours on me. There were some of the deeper shades (like reds) that lasted longer and left subtle stains behind. I found the formula to be lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.

Comeback

Urban Decay Comeback Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which dried down quickly and did not pull apart at my lip lines. I was surprised at how smooth after it dried down, as it felt very dry and almost chalky to me. The texture was thin but spreadable, but the dry down made it feel clingy. It lasted for five hours but had noticeable flakiness after three hours of wear. The formula was drying on me.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.17 oz. - $105.88 Per Ounce

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them.

They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.

Holiday 2017

Burberry Holiday 2017 Liquid Lip Velvet Set ($45.00 for 0.52 oz.) includes four, miniature-sized liquid lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of the formula–it’s pigmented, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear. The “downside” is the brand claims they last for eight hours, and they tend to last between six and eight hours on average. I found the formula of the shades included in the set to be consistent with their full-sized counterparts that I’ve reviewed in the past (so I did not retest for wear time but ratings reflect the set’s versions for pigmentation, texture, and so forth). Keep in mind, the formula does not have a flat, matte dry down–they have a light sheen that wears down to a satin-to-matte finish after a few hours of wear.

Value

A full-sized Liquid Lip Velvet retails for $34.00 and contains 0.20 fl. oz. or costs $170.00/fl. oz. The set contains $88.40 worth of product.

Pretty Please

MAC Pretty Please Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, light pink with an icier base and warmer golden pearl. It had sheer color payoff, which was not buildable but was more in line with the Lustre finish (always sheerer). The texture was emollient going on but felt thin and was prone to getting into my lip lines. It wore well for two hours on me and was slightly drying.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

MAC Mmmmmm Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, pinky mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a lightly glossy finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied even, opaque coverage in a single layer. The lipstick was lightly creamy with a smooth, lightweight texture that glided across my lips easily. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Make Up For Ever Lustrous Artist Rouge Lipstick Set

Make Up For Ever Lustrous Artist Rouge Lipstick Set

Make Up For Ever Lustrous Artist Rouge Lipstick Set

Make Up For Ever Lustrous Artist Rouge Lipstick Set

Lustrous

Make Up For Ever Lustrous Artist Rouge Lipstick Set ($35.00 for 0.16 oz.) is new, limited edition set for the holidays that features four miniature-sized lipsticks from the brand’s permanent offerings. The first downside was that C211 looked little like the permanent version I have–in depth but also strongly differed in undertone. Color discrepancies are frustrating, since one might fall in love with the shade but upon a repurchase, discover it has changed. Three of the four shades were quite pigmented with all wearing at least four hours, but two were slightly drying (both mattes) and one could have been more pigmented (C407).

Value

A full-sized Artist Rouge Lipstick retails for $22.00 and contains 0.12 oz. or costs $183.33/oz. The set contains $29.33 worth of product, which was a bit surprising–would have figured it to have a $30 price tag in that instance.
