Editor's Review

Make Up For Ever C209 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pop of light-medium pink with soft, bluish undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that went on evenly for the most part. This shade seemed to have more slip than other shades, which I think is why it did not apply as richly as a shade like C208. I didn't have any issues with the color feathering or sliding around much, but the wear time was four and a half hours, which is on the shorter side of the wear spectrum for this formula. It seemed more hydrating, though. Tom Ford Beauty Rosie (LE, $36.00) is glossier (95% similar). Hourglass I Love (P, $34.00) is less glossy (95% similar). ColourPop Tickled Pink (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Kumquat (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever Candy Pink (200) (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Dakota (LE, $36.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Laura Mercier Blush Pink (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Gumball (DC, $21.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Dddevilish (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Double Bubble (DC, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Wagasa Twirl (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Marisa (P, $34.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Summer Breeze (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Villa Lante (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). ColourPop Pitter Ponder (LE, $7.00) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Lotus Root (DC, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Claudia (P, $34.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Cuffed Up (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). ColourPop Cinderella (LE, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora Dare to Be (28) (P, $13.00) is less shimmery, warmer, glossier (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.
