ColourPop x Disney Mythic Journey Lip Gloss & Little Snow Lux Lipstick Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Mythic Journey Colour Pop Mythic Journey Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) has a clear base and flecks of multi-colored sparkle and pearl. At a glance, it seemed to have a stronger mix of gold, silver, and lavender, but it read truly multi-colored at most angles. It had a lightweight consistency that had no tackiness, was smoothing and comfortable to wear as it softened my lip lines. It had sheer coverage (in the form of shimmer), which is in…

Pat McGrath Astral Blue Star & Noir Lip Fetish Lip Balms Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Astral Blue Star Pat McGrath Astral Blue Star Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) has a translucent base with fine, barely-there iridescent pearl that flashed between silver and blue. It had just a dusting of pearl, so it had a subtle twinkle with a glossier finish, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it “glittering” (as it is described). It did not seem to have a tint–it just added shine and faint shimmer to…

Chanel Muted Fuchsia & Chestnut Rouge Allure Velvet Extremes Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Muted Fuchsia (124) Chanel Muted Fuchsia (124) Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff in one stroke, which applied evenly and wasn’t prone to emphasizing my natural lip texture (something that I’ve found to occur more often with these more velvet-matte type formulas). The lipstick had a very lightweight feel on my lips, and there was glide but it didn’t feel wet or…

Guerlain Holiday 2019 Rouge G Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

#94 Guerlain #94 Rouge G de Guerlain Matte Lip Color ($33.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, muted red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single, fluid stroke, which applied evenly on my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines or natural lip texture. The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient but not slippery or all that creamy–just enough not to tug–and was comfortable to wear. It stayed on nicely for…

Dior Charm & Delight Diorific Happy 2020 Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Charm (068) Dior Charm (068) Diorific Happy 2020 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and fine pink and gold pearl. It looked more shimmery in the tube than it did applied; the creamier base seemed to cover the bits of pearl for the most part. The texture was lightly creamy, thin without being clingy, and applied without tugging or dragging on my lips. Unfortunately, it was prone to catching on minor imperfections…

ColourPop Starling & Tattle Tail Ultra Blotted Liquid Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Starling Colour Pop Starling Ultra Blotted Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly with just a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines as it dried down. The product dried down quickly applied to my lips but took longer on my arm, and I’ve often had issues with this formula highlighting lip…

YSL Or Cuivre & Rosewood Star Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Formula Overview $36.00/0.13 oz. – $276.92 Per Ounce The formula is supposed to have “rich color with intense hydration … in just one stroke.” The thing to know about this formula is that it is quite emollient and has a lot of slip; the formula almost applies itself as it glides quickly across the lips, though I sometimes found it too emollient and too slippery. That extra slip meant that some shades weren’t as pigmented as anticipated or that color…

MAC Young Star, Counting Stars, Starring You Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Young Star MAC Young Star Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warmer undertones and flecks of soft white pearl and sparkle. It had a milkier quality to the base color, which gave it a semi-sheer level of coverage, and it sunk noticeably into my lip lines. The product applied fairly evenly, and the shimmers/sparkles dispersed well across my lips. The texture was light-medium in thickness with moderate tackiness, so it was a heavier formula compared to…

MAC Star Memoir & Starf*cker Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

MAC Star Memoir Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and fine, violet and pink pearl throughout. It had medium color coverage with a smooth, light-medium consistency that was moderately tacky and felt thicker, but it was very comfortable to wear and smoothed out some of my lip lines. There was a bit of gloss that sank into the deeper lip lines on my lower lip, but all of my lip lines seemed finer.…

Two of the four shades are from the more recently released (which missed even my radar!) shades, plus two that have been around for awhile.

Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sweet Little Vices Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices 4-Piece Mini Vice Lipstick Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that includes all new shades, and the twist on these is that each is scented and flavored differently from the regular Vice range. As much as I love the Vice range, these four were a disappointment. Only one of the four applied decently, but the other three were misses based on how they sat on lips–not the…

Glossy Posse Fenty Beauty Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set ($42.00 for 0.9 oz.) includes five, miniature-sized glosses with four new, exclusive shades and one from the permanent range. I’m curious if any of these shades will be brought into the permanent line next year; they did that with the prior holiday releases but not all shades. Depending on your natural lip color, these may look more similar than dissimilar applied, as it is a sheerer gloss formula. I was…

MAC Starstruck & Walk of Flame for Stardom Kissing Stars Lipstick Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Starstruck MAC Starstruck Kissing Stars Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, purple-berry with warmer undertones and flecks of cooler violet and blue-violet sparkle and micro-glitter. It had medium color coverage in a single layer, which was most apparent when swatched on my arm and not at all apparent when actually applied. The issue was in the texture, as the more I tried to built up the coverage, the more the color moved around and created an incredibly uneven…

MAC Gold Star & Kiss of Stars Kissing Stars Lipstick Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Gold Star MAC Gold Star Kissing Stars Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a more frosted, lightly metallized finish. It had less sparkle–though still some–compared to other shades with a much higher shimmer content to it, which I felt gave it more “coverage” and seemed to minimize some of the slip. It had medium coverage, which didn’t build up much beyond that, but I didn’t experience the product clumping up on itself…

MAC Asterisk & Destined for Stardom Kissing Stars Lipstick Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Asterisk MAC Asterisk Kissing Stars Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a blackened purple base with a mixture of bluish-violet, purple, and lighter blue sparkle and glitter throughout. It was appalling bad in application, and it lived up to… none of its claims; it didn’t evenly distribute color, it wasn’t opaque, and the texture was smooth. I don’t know who let this one escape the factory, but it’s not a real surprise as every comparable shade (and they’re all quite…

Fenty Beauty Underdawg Stunna Lip Paint Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Underdawg Fenty Beauty Underdawg Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep burgundy with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The Stunna formula has a longer dry-down, though somewhat dependent on how much is applied–the applicator always grabs too much product!–but a good five to ten minutes is safe. The dry down is more of a transfer-resistant finish, as there is absolutely light transfer left behind on cups and glasses until enough wears down…

ColourPop x Safiya Nygaard Screamer & Brucie Lux Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Screamer Colour Pop Screamer Matte Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep burgundy with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in one pass, which was buildable for the most part, though I had trouble getting full coverage on the inner area of my lips (just didn’t seem to want to adhere, which can occur on occasion for me). The texture was firmer, stiffer in the tube, but it didn’t drag painfully; I preferred…

ColourPop x Safiya Nygaard Bikini Bottom & Mrs. Norris Lux Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Bikini Bottom Colour Pop Bikini Bottom Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, peachy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it was just shy of full coverage, especially around my inner lip area. The lipstick had a lightweight, creamy consistency that had enough slip to glide on without dragging but not enough to slide around during wear. There was a smidgen of product…
