Holiday 2018

Givenchy Holiday 2018 Rouge Interdit Mini Lip Duo ($25.00 for 0.08 oz.) features two miniature-sized version of top selling shades in the Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick range. The formula is supposed to have “long-lasting wear” with “vibrant, satin color” that has “endless comfort.” They were both comfortable to wear, but it wasn’t a particularly long-wearing formula as the texture was more emollient but thin without that adherence needed for exceptional longevity. They were floral-scented from what I could tell but had no discernible taste.

Mattemoiselle 10/10

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle 10/10 Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick Vault ($149.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition set for the holiday season that is supposed to feature 10 upcoming shades in the Mattemoiselle range, so sometime in the future, these will release individually in the permanent range (I don’t have a date). They were fairly consistent with the range–pigmented, creamy, and longer-wearing with mostly non-drying to lightly hydrating formulas. A full-sized lipstick retails for $18 a pop, so the set has a value of $180, which may be worth it for someone who wears a spectrum of shades and likes satin finishes.

Holiday 2018

Dior Holiday 2018 Rouge Dior Mini 4-Piece Set ($50.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a limited edition, sold out mini set that was exclusive to Sephora. The upside for yours truly is that the shades included are part of the permanent range so not all is lost, at least in terms of swatches and testing. The formula is better than it appears in the ratings because this formula comes with an overzealous wear-time claim of 16 hours when most shades last between four and six hours. I wish the lipsticks were squatter as they are narrower, and in the mini format, they are more fragile; I managed not to break any (I was careful), but I could see it happening quite easily.

Riot

NARS Riot Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set ($45.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the boldest of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Sets this year with three reds shades and one berry hue to enjoy. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, four to six hour wear, and were fairly easy to apply, though they could have go on a bit more evenly overall. That being said, from a normal viewing distance, they did not look uneven, so we are talking minor unevenness.

The set contains four full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, in all new shades, giving it a total value of $108. My information had it exclusively available at NARS, but it is also on Nordstrom, Barneys, and Saks (specialty retailers).

Ransom

NARS Ransom Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set ($45.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited set of four jumbo-sized lip pencils in shades of soft brown, coral, and plum. The set contains four full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, in all new shades, giving it a total value of $108. This set is exclusive to Nordstrom. The quality of two shades was consistent with what I’d expect from the formula and are worth considering, but the other two were more disappointing, so the set was a wash.
