Brand: Cargo
Range: Essential Lip Colour
Shades: Dubai, Napa, Paris
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Cargo cosmetics has finally reached Australia at Kit Cosmetics, and I’m pleased to report that their first ever lipstick collection is worth checking out.
  • It’s highly saturated with colour, with a high grip formula with lip moisturising plumping benefits.  So much so that I decided I would swatch them without any lip brush to show you how snug and pigmented it looks on lips.
  • Available in 12 shades with key ingredients such as olive oil, jojoba and shea butter and Maxi Lip (lip plumping ingredient).
  • Verdict: My favourite of the 3 shades definitely has to be Dubai for its amazing nude coverage without looking washed out or streaky.  The snug high grip formula gets two thumbs up from me, as it means the colour is feather-proof and makes my lips look more dimensional whilst keeping them moist. Highly recommend it!!

Brand: Ellis Faas
Range: Hot Lips
Shades: Bright Orange L402 & Deep Pink L407
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Ellis Faas Hot Lips is unlike the original formulas (Creamy / Milky / Glaze) in that it’s densely pigmented with a creamy and slightly glossy finish that’s moisturising.
  • Only a small amount is needed for vibrant colour, and the sponge tip applicator helps to smooth the product out for an even finish.
  • Available in 9 shades, ranging from bright reds and fluo pinks to rose violets and  pink nudes.
  • Verdict: This liquid lipstick will appeal to those that like the idea of a hybrid between cream formula and a “balmy” sheen.  It gives lips a painted effect, making this more suitable for lips that are well sculpted with minimal lip lines.

Brand: Chanel
Range: Rouge Allure Velvet
Shade: La Diva 44
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Described as “luminous matte”, Rouge Allure Velvet is enriched with ultra-thin mother of pearls, and is possibly the most moisturising and comfortable matte lipstick out there.
  • Lips stay velvety matte and won’t dry out even after few hours.
  • Very impressed by the minimal kiss-off on coffee cups, and fades gracefully after a few hours without looking patchy.
  • Comes with a ”one click release” packaging so your lipstick is safe on the go.
  • Verdict: Hot pink is one of those shades that countless women tell me how much they could pull it off.  For a sophisticated take on an enviable lip trend, pair it with Chanel Precision Lip Definer in “Sonic Pink” for a statement lip that will guarantee heads turning with envy.  It does change colour once on lips (the violet hues came alive on my skintone) so I recommend trying it to see if it’s for you.

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Summer Collection

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Summer 1

Estee Lauder’s 2014 Bronze Goddess Summer Collection is inspired by the exotic Caribbean paradise embodied by golden sands and palm trees. The Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Batik Sun is a limited edition palette of brilliant green, gold and nude shades.

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Summer 3b

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Summer 6

My favourite product from the collection is the Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heat Wave, a highly pearlised golden illuminating powder with a creamy textuere that makes it easy to blend on the skin for a luxurious holiday glow.

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Summer 6b To intensify the eyes, the Pure Color Liquid Eyeliner Duo in Black Sands features a dual ended felt tip in black and bronze to add definition and add extra smoulder to the summer look.

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Summer 5

The felt tip is soft and moderate in flexibility, making it easy to draw clean lines and flicks.  The formula is very wet and takes around a minute to set and becomes budge proof.  I recommend tight lining with a eyeliner pencil first, so that the wet formula is focused on creating a precise edge.

Lastly, the Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in new limited edition shades – Solar Crush and Fuschia Fever - feature vibrant pink and tangerine tones.  The formula is long lasting with intense pigmentation that fades gracefully as the day wears on.

BOBBI BROWN Lip Color Shimmer Finish – 11 Pink Apricot Shimmer – Review, Photos, Swatches

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
