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.

What are your favourite lippies of 2013?

Brand: Chanel
Range: Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss
Shade: Controversy 722
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Inspired by the iconic lipstick Rouge Allure, the Extrait de Gloss combines a smooth, silky gel texture with bold colour for a luxurious dramatic effect.
  • Despite being very pigmented, the formula is neither sticky nor tacky, and leaves lips feeling comfortable and sensuous for hours.
  • I find that one pump is enough for the entire lips, and rubbing my lips together helps to spread the gloss evenly into the lip creases.
  • Tip: Use the long edge of the wand to spread the gloss along your lip line, then use the rounded corner of the wand to define your cupids bow.
  • Controversy is described as a “brown plum” and has a vampy edge to it.
  • What sets this apart from other pigmented glosses is that it’s not only long lasting, but even after drinking it leaves a soft stain behind, giving your lips a flush of colour from the undertones.  For me, the flush of colour that remained was a rhubarb MLBB shade.
  • Verdict: The brown tones in this vampy gloss will appeal to those who have warm skin tones, or want to create a chocolate toned autumn look.CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss - Controversy 72 Reviews Photos Swatch

Brand: Chanel
Range: Rouge Coco Shine
Shade: Secret 85
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Chanel Rouge Coco Shine’s are renowned for their comfortable, translucent moisturising formula that’s available in both sheer and more recently pigmented shades that are packed with 30% more pigment.
  • The secret to the gentle moisturising formula is Chanel’s Hydratendre complex that softens and plumps lips for a healthier fuller appearance.
  • More sophisticated than a lip tint or sheer lipstick, Rouge Coco Shines stay on well considering it’s a sheer lipstick, gently dressing the lips with a veil of colour that has minimal slip.
  • Secret is from the sheer range and is a peachy beige that gives a translucent milky nude finish on my lips, an effect I often get with beige tones.
  • Verdict: I recommend Secret for pale lip tones, as it’s not so forgiving on pigmented lips especially if you also have lip lines like I do.  That said, no one really looks up close to my lips except for all you readers of Beauty Swatch.  At arms length, the overall nude effect is really alluring as it looks like a soft plush nude veil that glistens in light.

I photographed this the same day as the Rouge Allure Moiré lipsticks I posted earlier this week, which goes to show you can hide a multitude of lip flaws with the right shade of lipstick and formula.
