Color differences + similarities:
These two lipsticks are in the same color family. I admit they are not exact 100% dupes. They do have differences in the shade of this vivid fuchsia color. MUFE 36 is a shade brighter, while the Covergirl Spellbound is a shade darker.
Lipstick wear time:
I have used MUFE 36 when I went out for an all day event where I ate and drank in the sunlight. I did have to reapply the color 2-3 times throughout the day into the night which is fair since I think it’s because of the frequent eating and drinking. Otherwise, I think it would have lasted longer on me with minimal touch ups; Very comfortable to wear.
Most people do not find this next lipstick drying; Covergirl Spellbound does last all day on me due to the drying formula. It feels comfortable to wear as long as you put a really good lip balm underneath. I ate and drank with this lipstick all day. I do notice it transferring to my glass and utensils, but when I check to see if my lips got ruined, they look as if I hadn’t been touching them at all which is a pleasant surprise. At the end of the day, my lips lacked moisture and were partly stained with the fuchsia shade.
