Brand: AB Makeup
Range: Liquid Lustre
Shade: Desire
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Further to yesterday’s swatch of AB Makeup Micro Bubble Lipstick in “Micro Mandarin”, today I have Liquid Lustre in “Desire” which brings the sheer peachy creamy lipstick to life.
  • Available in 8 shades, Desire is a sheer peachy golden gloss that is the perfect finishing touch over a peachy or nude lip base – be it lipstick or lip pencil.
  • The lip gloss texture is very silky smooth & with absolutely no stickiness or tackiness at all.
  • Whilst the website says it’s a plumping gloss, I don’t feel any tingle but my lips do appear to be re-shaped slightly.   There are no smoothing effects on lip lines.
  • The taste is neutral, like the taste of the gloss formula rather than a deliberate attempt to create a signature scent.
  • Verdict: Whilst I love the pretty peachy golden shimmers and how it brings  a nude lipstick to life, for the formula to excite me it would need to do a better job of sculpting and smoothing lip lines. 

The swatch below is of the gloss on its own.

  • AB Makeup is by  Antoinette Bekos, Head of Hair and Makeup services at Network Ten Melbourne and makeup artist to many Australian personalities.
  • Contains “micro-bubbles” releasing conditioners to keep lips soft and moisturised.  Whilst it is smooth, it’s a very thin texture that’s not as creamy as you’d expect from a creamy lipstick.
  • Available in 10 shades, Micro Mandarin is a peachy nude.
  • Pigment was a lot sheerer than I expected.  On its own it looks very muted, so I’d recommend finishing off with a shimmery golden gloss such as AB Makeup’s Lip Lustre (swatch coming tomorrow) to bring it to life.
  • Preservative-free.
  • Verdict: I expected more from this lipstick in terms of pigment & creaminess.  Perhaps the issue is to do with the shade, but having been sent only one shade it’s difficult to say.  Stay tuned for tomorrow’s swatch of this layered with AB Makeup Lip Lustre.
