Brand: Mirenesse
Range: Lip Bomb “Candy Collection”
Shades: 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Further to the lip bombs I swatched previously, Mirenesse have released have released 6 new shades as part of their Candy Collection.
  • Lip Bombs are a unique glossy lacquer stain that coat lips with amplified colour with a juicy high shine lacquer finish.
  • What I love about the unique applicator (close up pic here) is that you only need one coat for a high impact finish as the flat tip of the wand helps evenly smooth the lacquer over the lips.
  • You can also customise the colours by adding a touch of gold or white to lighten up the shades.
  • Verdict: Whilst my last set of swatches featured hot pinks and reds, this time there’s a cinammon red, coral and raspberry red and a shimmery fuschia – which in my opinion takes the cake from the Candy Collection.

Range: Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Shades: Berry Allure, Sugar Violet, Fuchsia Finery, Pink Pop, Pango Peach, Snow Pink, Super Natural, Rosy Future, Kiss Me Coral, Fatal Apple, Raising Rouge
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are Revlon’s newest addition to their lip gloss range, and come in a silky formula that boosts hydration and subtly plumps lips.
  • Available in 12 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • I’m really impressed by the pigmentation of these lipgloss, in that even the sheerest formula gives a beautiful soft veil of colour that looks great even on its own.
  • Non-tacky and feels really smooth and moisturising with a high shine.
  • Verdict: These are really great quality for their price point, and can be worn on their own as a sheer MLBB gloss.  With wedding season at its peak at this time of year in Australia, these glosses are an affordable choice for the bridal party that’s easy to squeeze in an evening bag and touch up throughout the day.

Brand: NP Set
Range: Gloss and Go Duo
Shades: Palm Beach & Venice Beach
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • NP Set Gloss and Go Duo comes with a clear lip gloss and a long wearing lip stain available in 2 shades – Palm Beach (shimmery peach) and Venice Beach (pink coral)
  • The lip stain applies like a lip lacquer, and on its own it looks pretty average, but the moment the clear gloss is layered on top the colour immediately becomes more vibrant.
  • Although it contains Vitamin E to nourish lips, I wouldn’t say that the lip stain feels particularly moisturising, nor is it drying either.  The gloss however does adds a cushiony comfort to the lips.
  • Verdict: As testament to how budge proof it is, Venice Beach was really difficult to remove, requiring several rounds of heavy duty makeup remover like Biodemra or Clinique Take the Day Off to remove all traces of the vibrant pink colour.  This will appeal to those who love a fresh summer look with the “clean eye look” accentuated by a punchy lip colour.

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.

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipglass
Shade: Clear
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

A unique lip gloss that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Clear Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips and a tiny bead of this highly concentrated product is all that’s needed to cover the lip area. Clear Lipglass can be mixed with other products, like Pigments, and can be applied anywhere on the body except for the eye area to create interesting effects.

  • Katherine describes this as an excellent gloss to apply over lipstick as it doesn’t cause the lip colour to sink into lines, instead it stays as a mirror-like layer over the original lipstick.  A small amount is all that’s needed to achieve a high impact glass-like finish.
  • Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post to find out how sticky this gloss is compared to other brands.
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!
