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.

CHANTECAILLE Lip Chic – China Rose – Review, photos, swatches

Brand: Chantecaille
Range: Lip Chic
Shade: China Rose
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Chantecaille Lip Chic is a hybrid lipstick that combines the high shine and plumping effects of a gloss, with the rich coverage of a lipstick.
  • The sensation when you apply it is UNLIKE anything I have ever tried – THE MOST buttery soft texture that immediately smoothes and firms the lips as you glide it across.
  • Leaves lips feeling very plush, comfortable and glossy.  They feel like they’re dressed in a gloss-like formula, but it’s so thin that it just appears shiny and smooth and keeps lips moisturised the entire day until you wipe it off completely.
  • The colour is fairly long lasting considering it’s a sheer lipstick, and I find myself applying it around 3 times a day (morning, after lunch and again in the afternoon for extra moisture)
  • Verdict: This is a staple in my work makeup bag as my lips get easily parched in air conditioning, and it gives my lips an instant moisturised pick-me-up. I love that I don’t need a brush or pencil to apply this “my lips but better” colour, as I often only have a minute or two to touch up in between meetings.   I’ve used so much already that if I keep going at this rate I’ll need to re-purchase soon, and that’s a first in my 4 and half years of blogging.  In other words – holy grail stuff.
