Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Lip Color – Shimmer Finish
Shade: Pink Apricot Shimmer #11
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Shimmer Finish range of Bobbi Brown Lip Colors feature light reflecting pearls for a highly reflective multidimensional colour.
  • Packed with luxurious butters and oils to nourish and condition lips, but I find that I still need to apply lip balm beforehand for added moisture for the shimmer finish to look their best.
  • Pink Apricot Shimmer is described as a “bright pink coral” with gold pearl shimmers.
  • Verdict: This will appeal to those that want a multidimensional finish without needing to layer on gloss for a luminous effect.  On a personal front, I find that shimmery lipsticks looks distracting on me,  and I much prefer shimmer on my eyes than lips

Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Lip Gloss
Shade: Siren Red
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

Shine and softness (with a hint of vanilla scent). We’ve infused our lip gloss formula with a soothing mix of aloe and botanical extracts including oils of avocado, jojoba and chamomile, to keep lips soft and supple. Plus the tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro.

  • Siren Red is a new shade added to the Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss range, and is a semi-translucent red that’s best accessorised over a red lipstick or lip pencil for added dimension.  It doesn’t feather or bleed into lip lines, which is a big plus particularly with shades like red.
  • What I love about Bobbi Brown glosses is how long lasting and moisturising they are, which does come part and parcel with moderate stickiness. The new tapered applicator is a welcome change from the brush applicator from the previous design, and makes it easier to apply precisely and spread the gloss evenly as a little goes a long way.
  • Verdict: Wearing red lipstick on a date can be high maintenance especially with eating and all.  A glossy red lip on the other hand makes it easy to touch up and also wipe down after meals without needing to worry about smudging on teeth or on your chin.  Siren Red will appeal to those that like the idea of an easy-to-wear red gloss that speaks quiet confidence without being over the top.

Top 10 Lippies of 2013

Top 10 Lippies of 2013 Beauty Swatch
After tuning into a whole year of lip swatches, I bet you’re wondering which ones are my favourites beneath the objective reviews.  Whilst I do love finding gems in budget brands, there’s nothing like a sophisticated formulas to make me go weak at the knees.  Here are my top favourite lip products that were featured on Beauty Swatch in 2013 in no particular order.  To view last year’s picks, visit my Top 10 Lippies of 2012 post.

1. Burberry Lip Velvet – A soft wearable matte that gives lips a soft focus demure finish.  Great for those that want an everyday matte finish without looking over dressed.

2. Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color – Bobbi Brown’s take on the sheer lipstick trend doesn’t compromise on pigment nor longevity.  Blends seamlessly into every crevice of your lips making it almost believable that your lips are naturally in that colour.

3. Chanel Rouge Allure Moire – My favourite shade “Indecisé” is the ultimate sophisticated pearl nude that looks stunning in all angles of lighting.

4. Chantecaille Lip Chic – Hands down the most moisturising lipstick I’ve ever tried that keeps my lips soft all day.  Also the only lipstick I’ve come closest to hitting pan since my blogging.

5. ck one shine lipstick – The translucent yet lip hugging sheer formula makes even the trickiest of colours look flawless with no slippage or settling into lines.

6. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense – The ultimate low maintenance lippie in a range of punchy colours that doesn’t require lip balm, lip brush or lip liner whatsoever.

7. Sisley Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick – The most comfortable long wearing moisturising lipstick that makes your lips feel like soft fabric.  Shade “Geisha” is my favourite glamour red.

8.  Shiseido Lacquer Rouge – my favourite liquid lipstick that provides creamy moist coverage.  Comes in a range of “my lips but better” and work appropriate shades for a understated polished look.

9. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine – The punchiest sheer lipstick you’ll come across that’s also moisturising.  Runner up in the 2013 Australian Beauty Awards lipstick category.

10. YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats Lipstick –  The most luxurious matte finish I’ve tried that gives high definition pillowy lips that you typically see in editorials or runways.
