Makeup by Mario Nikki & Alicia Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Nikki Makeup by Mario Nikki Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium orange-copper with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single stroke, and the texture glided on better than most shades in the range, so it was more comfortable to apply and to wear while still staying in place and not feathering/sliding around. The texture was lightly velvety, firmer in the tube but not ov...

Makeup by Mario Cam & Annie Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Cam Makeup by Mario Cam Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, peachy orange with moderate, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. It had medium color payoff that could be built up to mostly opaque coverage, but there was some translucency and a tendency for the color to go on unevenly, streak along the edges, and settle into my lip lines noticeably. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and firmer in the tube, whi...

Makeup by Mario Garth & Nicole Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Garth Makeup by Mario Garth Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and fairly smoothly across my lips–better than most in the range, though not enough glide to really go on in a fluid motion so I’d still suggest applying in shorter, overlapping motions from the get-go. The lipstick w...

Makeup by Mario The Nudes 1 Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

The Nudes 1 Makeup by Mario The Nudes 1 Four-Play Everyday Eyeshadow Quad ($25.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition neutral-leaning color story that included two shimmery shades and two matte shades. The shimmers were pigmented and blendable, while the mattes were more semi-opaque and buildable–but still more pigmented than marketed–but very easy to work with so as long as more coverage isn’t a deal-breaker, there were no real is...

Makeup by Mario The Nudes 3 Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

The Nudes 3 Makeup by Mario The Nudes 3 Four-Play Everyday Eyeshadow Quad ($25.00 for 0.2 oz.) includes one shimmery eyeshadow, one eyeshadow topper, and two matte eyeshadows. I think the performance wasn’t as consistent with the brand’s formulas, such that the shimmery and matte shades were more pigmented (which may be a happy thing for some) and less buildable compared to the permanent releases I’ve tried in the past. The topper sha...

Makeup by Mario Kate & Brielle Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Kate Makeup by Mario Kate Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a dusty, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. The lipstick had a firmer feel in the tube, which was better applied in shorter, overlapping strokes rather than a single pass as it didn’t have enough glide to do so. It was very lightweight and thin–almost weightless to me–on my lips, but it was flexible enough to be comfortable ...

Makeup by Mario Kiana & Lucia Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Kiana Makeup by Mario Kiana Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, ruby red with cooler, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture felt very lightweight on my lips, but the actual lipstick was firmer and stiffer with little glide, so it tugged on my lips and wasn’t the easiest to spread evenly over my lips. This was a shade...

Makeup by Mario Maurice & Rasa Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Maurice Makeup by Mario Maurice Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture felt very lightweight, thin, and had no slip once on my lips, and in the tube, the bullet itself was firmer and a bit dense, so it needed more pressure to apply across my lips and was less comfortable to apply in more fluid motions. It had opaque pigmentation that wore well for fo...

Fanda Makeup by Mario Fanda Ultra Suede LipstickMakeup by Mario Fanda Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture was denser and firmer in the tube, so it didn’t glide in a single stroke for me, but it didn’t tug too much that it was painful or difficult to get the color to transfer onto my lips evenly. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff tha...

Kristen Makeup by Mario Kristen Ultra Suede LipstickMakeup by Mario Kristen Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, raspberry pink with cool undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture was very lightweight and thin on my lips, but the feel was firmer, denser but not as velvety as I’ve encountered with formulas similar to this (silicone-heavy, often billed as “soft matte”). It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation ...

It had rich color coverage paired with a moderately dense, slightly firmer texture that was very lightweight and thin as I applied it to my lips, though it never felt clingy or uncomfortable to wear as it remained flexible without sliding around. It wore well for four and a half...

Makeup by Mario Sierra & Sam Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Sierra Makeup by Mario Sierra Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warmer, more orange undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture was firmer in the tube, almost stiff to work with, so I had to use a firmer hand to drag it across my lips, which did not make it the most comfortable formula to apply. It felt more silicone-like where the product pilled a little as I worked with it, and this was furth...
