Tease

Maybelline Tease Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on without streaking, but the color looked patchy and sank into so many of my lip lines. There was also something about this particular shade’s formula that made it harder to apply: it was thinner, almost runny, and it was very hard to keep in place, even after it became more gel-like in texture. It wore for four hours but sank further into my lip lines over time. The formula was lightly hydrating, though.

The formula is supposed to have “full coverage” that won’t “feather or migrate” paired with a “high-impact glossy finish.” The formula is light-medium in thickness–by no means a thin, featherweight gloss but not shy of being totally goopy or heavy-feeling–with moderate tackiness. I find that it initially went on feeling like a thicker, creamy gloss with a lot of slip, but it developed into more of a gel-like consistency that adhered better and did not slide around after 20 to 30 seconds. I did not experience feathering or migration with any shades tested so far (and I went for the deeper shades first!). The wear has ranged from four to six hours with a non-drying to lightly hydrating effect. The formula had a subtle, sweet scent but did not taste soapy or linger as long as I have experienced with Maybelline lip products in the past.

Charmer

Maybelline Charmer Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff, but the creaminess made it sink into my lip lines and look bubbly in the close-up photo, though I don’t think either issue was that apparent at a normal viewing distance. The texture was moderately sticky, but it wasn’t uncomfortable nor did it feel thick or goopy on. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly moisturizing.

Unreal

Maybelline Unreal Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was good–just shy of being opaque–and applied without streaking, though there was a bit of color that went into my lip lines. I do not think it was visible from a normal viewing distance, just in the close-up photos. The texture was smooth, creamy, and felt a little slippery initially, but it developed a more gel-like texture that adhered well to lips after thirty seconds or so. The gloss felt hydrating over the four and a half hours it lasted for.

Oh, I really like Unreal! Perfect nude lipgloss for warmer tones! I may just get it down the road this summer.

I’m glad Unreal got a good review!It was the first one I looked at and thought it was really pretty my kind of color when you put the lip swatches up.

I’m always happy to read reviews of products I know wouldn’t suit me. It’s fun to read, and look at the photos but I don’t have to think about getting one, or maybe two. I like Charmer and Unreal, but not for me.

I’m not a fan of these kinds of shades because they can make me look quite deathly – and the formula doesn’t quite seem right either. Unreal is the better shade, apart from rating well, it adds a bit of colour and depth to your lips.
