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.

TOO FACED La Creme Lipstick – Spice Spice Baby – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


Lips, LIPSTICK, NC20, TOO FACED, Yishan | by — June 5, 2013


Brand: Too FacedRange: La Creme Lipstick
Shade: Spice Spice Baby
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Too Faced La Creme Lipstick is rich and creamy infused with super moisturisers including white lotus flower and power peptides.
  • Glides incredibly smoothly with a glossy finish & creamy moisturising texture with a slight lemon scent.
  • Available in 4 colour ranges – nudes, spices, pinks and reds. Spice Spice Baby is a very natural rosy nude.
  • It conceals my lip tone evenly, but if I had to nit-pick with a magnifying mirror, I’d say that it has a slight tendency to settle into lip lines.  Thankfully it’s not noticeable since it’s such a natural shade.
  • Verdict: I first heard about this lipstick after watching Jen’s review on Youtube (FrmHeadtoToe) who also bought the same shade, and I immediately decided I had to have it – it looked so natural and glossy, perfect for everyday makeup. Despite it having a slight tendency to settle into lines, I still really like it nonetheless as it’s a really chic nude shade that covers my lip tone evenly, is great for pairing with tonal makeup & keeps lips soft and moist.


RRP: $21 USD (excluding taxes) at Sephora.

This product was gifted to me by my sister-in-law.

TOO FACED Lip Injection Extreme – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


LIP PLUMPERS, Lips, NC20, TOO FACED, Yishan | by — May 21, 2012

Brand: Too Faced
Range: Lip Injection Extreme
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Lip Injection Extreme is for those that don’t mind a fair bit of tingle in exchange for long lasting plumping effects
  • Scientifically proven to increase lip volume and plumpness permanently with continued use, this serum is to be used both morning and night together with your skincare routine.
  • After applying onto clean dry lips, wait one minute before applying lip colour to allow it to absorb into lips.
  • This lip plumper is not for the faint hearted & I recommend it only if you’re really serious about plumping lips.
  • It doesn’t just tingle, it actually hurts for around 1-2 minutes before it reduces to a tingle.  It’s so strong that if you accidentally smear this on your face it’ll leave red  patches that disappear after a while.
  • Verdict: Pain aside, this is strong stuff. 6 hours later (after meals and wiping off several lip swatches) my lips are still fuller than they were before application.  Recommended for those that prefer to enhance their lips naturally instead of  injectables.

Would you be willing to put up with more than just a tingle for a plump pout?

RRP: $51.95 AUD
