Acoustic

Makeup Geek Acoustic Foiled Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a dark burgundy with warm undertones and red and magenta pearl. It had good pigmentation–not quite opaque–in a single layer. The texture was slightly thinner than most shades in the range, but still more substantial than most modern gloss formulas these days. It had more slip and appeared glossier but had less noticeable pearl, so it almost seemed to have less shine when compared to some of the other shades as well. The evenness of the application helped to camouflage some of the color that settled into my lip lines. It wore well for six hours and felt hydrating.

The Foiled Lip Gloss formula is supposed to wear for “six hours” with buildable coverage (“single swipe for … translucent pop of color” or “multiple layers for … opaque color”). The texture was thicker but not goopy or heavy with a moderate tackiness. They lasted from five to seven hours on me, and they were comfortable to wear and were just barely hydrating overall. The pigmentation ranged from medium to semi-opaque in one pass, and then the glosses were buildable to mostly opaque to opaque.

Replay

Makeup Geek Replay Foiled Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a bright, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and very fine red pearl. This was the least “Foiled” of the range–it was more of a subdued sheen compared to the high-shine finish on other shades. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and the gloss felt a little thinner overall. This shade wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.

Vinyl

Makeup Geek Vinyl Foiled Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a deep taupe with warm, brownish undertones and green and gold pearl (and seemingly other colors, too, but predominantly green and gold). The consistency was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, and comfortable to wear. The color could have went on more evenly, and I did have a bit of gloss show up in my lip lines. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted for five and a half hours on me.

Acoustic would be the most perfect, sexy, vampy burgundy gloss for autumn and winter! That one is amazing for a deeper shade of lipgloss!
Vinyl reminds me of the MAC Rihanna 2 VG lipstick, but even more complex and with a glossy finish. I love it on you and others I’ve seen it on, but sometimes shades that have gray tones can look really *off* against my skintone. But I REALLY want this one, though!

I like Acoustic and most of all Vinyl. I’m not at all sure I’ll look OK in vinyl, but I sure will try. I see an order from MUG in my near future.
