All of these are very similar to one another, and have similar formulas and wear time.

If I had to choose one, it'd be Fergie Daily just because its a tad more light and pink.

These are all literally the same color. The differences are price point, longevity, smell, and opacity.

If I had to choose one, it'd be Think Pink because its the cheapest, lasts the longest on the lips, doesn't have a weird, strong smell like Matte Tease, and is very opaque and pigmented.

All of them are a glossy finish except for Cairo. Skimpy is the darkest. Barely Bloomed has more of a peach tone. And he first four are all really similar. Cairo has the best wear time due to its matte finish. Skimpy has a really strong smell.

If I had to choose one or two, they'd be Blushing Beige and Barely Bloomed. I love Maybelline's formula, price point, and accessibility. And Blushing Beige is my favorite lipstick of all time, so of course I'd have to go with that one!

As you can see, Cairo is matte, and a little lighter and more pink. To me, Circe and Honey look the same. So you definitely don't need both of them. Cairo has the best wear time because of its finish and consistency, and Creme Brulee has he shortest wear time because its so creamy.

If I had to choose one or two, it'd be Cairo and Circe (just because I like the name more than Honey, LOL.)

As you can see, Complex isn't 100% matte, but it isn't as glossy as Nude Delight. Complex is also a tad less pink than Nude Delight. Because of its "matte" finish, Complex wears longer on me, and doesn't get on my teeth.

If I had to choose one, it'd definitely be Complex. I just really think this is a unique shade, and the formula and longevity are great.

Clearly these are different formulas, consistencies, and applicators. But the colors are almost dead on. Sushi Kiss is a HAIR more neon-ish. Although Luna is more glossy than Sushi Kiss, they both have the same wear time.

If I had to choose one, it'd probably be Sushi Kiss. Just because if I want to make it matte or more glossy, I can do so. With a lip lacquer, your only option is to wear it as is. Plus, the application can be a little tricky with a lip lacquer, and can tend to get on the teeth a little more easily.

My bare lips





























This one definitely came as a surprise. They don't look anything alike in the tube, or swatched on the skin. But they are IDENTICAL on the lips. They are both fairly glossy, and have the same wear time.

If I had to choose one, I'd choose #day glow, just based on the fact that it is cheaper and more accessible to me. Because they literally look exactly the same on my lips.
