Rouge Carmin (824) Chanel Rouge Carmin (824) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a rich, ruby red with a cream finish and moderate shine paired with neutral-to-cool undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly to my lips and smoothed out most of my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, non-sticky, and spreadable, though it could have been a bit less fluid as I felt like it was hard to get crisp edges…

ColourPop x Disney Free Spirit Lip Gloss & Going North Lux Lipstick Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Free Spirit Colour Pop Free Spirit Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a translucent, light-medium, peachy orange gloss that added a noticeable, warmer tint to my lips but was still very much on the sheer side. It is intended to be sheer and have just a tint, so it was on the mark for coverage. The texture was smooth, non-sticky, and gel-like, so it spread well across my lips and smoothed out some of my lip lines. It…

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…

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 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.…

Fenty Beauty Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

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…

ColourPop Attention Haul, Crushin’, Lesson Learned Ultra Glossy Lips Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Attention Haul Colour Pop Attention Haul Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which applied fairly evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines noticeably (from a normal viewing distance but the close-up photo showed a bit). The gloss had a smooth, spreadable consistency that felt more like a cream-gel hybrid–dense and substantial but not tacky or heavy. This shade lasted…

Pick Up (388) Marc Jacobs Beauty Pick Up (388) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark golden copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, shimmery finish with a high shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied evenly with good distribution of the shimmer/sparkle. The gloss had a smooth, spreadable consistency that felt like a gel-cream hybrid, so there was enough thickness to it (without being heavy or glue-like!) to keep the gloss feeling smooth despite…

Genie Kiss (384) Marc Jacobs Beauty Genie Kiss (384) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a soft, rosy mauve with warmer undertones and flecks of gold and pink sparkle. It had a sheerer base, so it didn’t add much color, just added some warmth and washed out my natural lip color a bit. There was a “sheer” level of sparkle, too, so it had a bit of shine and shimmer with minimal color. The texture was lightweight,…

Colour Pop Berry Good Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, pinky coral with subtle, warm undertones and a jelly-like finish–translucent and plush. It had semi-sheer color coverage that looked more like a tint of color as it interacted with my natural lip color (the sheerness may result in a different color from person to person, more so than usual!). The texture was smooth, plush, and gel-like without being heavy or tacky, which made it easy to…

Both the lipstick and lipgloss have been released previously (as limited edition shades), while the lip pencil is part of the permanent range (yay for adding a permanent swatch!).

MAC Pink It Over Up Close & Personal Lip Kit Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Pink It Over MAC Pink It Over Up Close & Personal Lip Kit ($36.50 for 0.25 oz.) is a new, limited edition set that includes three, full-sized products: a lipgloss, lip pencil, and lipstick. They coordinate, though the gloss was noticeably warmer than the other two shades (which I think works but might not be as cohesive for some!). The gloss was better on its own as it resulted in more color separation along my lip lines when applied over…

It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage, which didn’t build up much beyond that, with good distribution of the shimmer and pearl across my lips for an even amount of coverage. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and comfortable to wear without being tacky. If you’re into sheer glosses, you’ll want…

Jouer Beach Daze & Sea Glass Duochrome High Pigment Pearl Lip Glosses Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Beach Daze Jouer Beach Daze Duochrome High Pigment Pearl Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.2 oz.) has a sheerer, almost coppery base with sparkle that shifted from copper to fuchsia. It had semi-sheer color coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque with a second layer, but the emollient formula was prone to pulling into my lip lines. At most angles, it was hard to see the settling as it did have a high-shine finish and a lot of reflection from the sparkles.…

MAC Coral of the Wild, Rock Starz, Make Me Mercurial Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Coral of the Wild MAC Coral of the Wild Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a milky, pale coral with warm, pinker undertones and a barely-there pearl strewn throughout a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness, and was moderately tacky. The coverage was semi-opaque, and it managed to go on rather evenly without streaking along the edges, but it did sit in most of my lip lines as milky glosses often have in the past. If that’s…

MAC Marble Faun & Natural Freak Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Marble Faun MAC Marble Faun Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) has a translucent base with white and light gold pearl and larger flecks of sparkle. It had “semi-sheer” coverage in the form of sparkle, which dispersed evenly across my lips. There was some milkiness to the base color (hence translucent and not clear), as there was a bit of whitish product in my lip lines. MAC’s formula does have sheerer and more opaque shades, but they infrequently describe them as…

Marc Jacobs Beauty Silver Surf (370) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium silver with neutral-to-cool undertones and holographic pearl and faint, larger sparkles. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which went on fairly evenly and had good dispersion of shimmer/sparkle. The texture was smooth, plush, and easy to spread across my lips, and it was substantial enough that I didn’t feel any of the pearl/sparkle in the gloss, but it…

Urban Decay Star Stunner & Wildside Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Star Stunner Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss ($20.00 for 0.23 oz.) has a clear base with holographic sparkle–and it was described as having a clear base. It had semi-sheer coverage with respect to the sparkle, which was fine enough not to add texture to the gloss. The texture was smooth, more like a gel-cream hybrid, that was comfortable to apply and to wear. The gloss didn’t settle into my lips, and it was moisturizing over the three…

It had medium color coverage in a single layer, which was as marketed for the brand’s shimmer/sparkle finish, though it would be great if the brand included “medium coverage” somewhere at the point of purchase! The texture was smooth, gel-like with a light creaminess, which made it easy to apply and spread out while also…
