Too Faced Red Stiletto La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Red Stiletto La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency was very emollient and creamy. I did notice some feathering after four hours of wear, and the color lasted for four and a half hours well. It was lightly hydrating during that time. Revlon Provocateur (135) (P, $8.99) is more matte. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE) is brighter. Chanel Dialogue (P, $34.00) is slightly more muted, more matte. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Maple La Creme Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “plum brown.” It’s a plum-tinged, medium brown with a natural shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage with some translucency all-over, so if you have naturally pigmented lips, this may look quite different on you as it is not fully opaque. The texture was lightly creamy though it had less slip compared to other shades of the La Creme formula, which was reflected in the finish–a soft sheen but not quite glossy. It wore well for three hours and was just a smidgen moisturizing while worn. bareMinerals Break Away (LE) is lighter, more matte. Givenchy Brun Cachemire (104) (P, $36.00) is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Strip (P, $22.00) is rosier. Bobbi Brown Soft Nude (P, $24.00) is more plum. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is warmer, browner. MAC Double Shot (P, $15.00) is darker, browner. Guerlain Avarice (P, $49.50) is more matte, slightly rosier. See comparison swatches.

Red Stiletto is such a beautiful color. And the second one is actually surprisingly really flattering, I thought it would be too brown but it looks natural and effortless

I thought Red Stiletto might be a strong contender for the MAC Powerhouse dupe I’ve been seeking for years, but it doesn’t look like it quite packs the punch I’m looking for.
Oh, well … :/
