Brand: ASAP
Range: Pure Mineral Lip Colour
Shades: One, Three, Six
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • ASAP Pure Mineral Lipcolours are a cosmeceutical mineral lipstick that conditions lips with Vitamin E, avocado, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid.
  • Available in six shades – One (pink rose), Two (rose brown), Three (bright candy pink), Four (deep rose brown), Five (subtle plum), Six (vibrant deep red)
  • Feels really moisturising, injecting my dry lips with a much needed boost of hydration making them instantly fuller, smoother and softer. No lip balm required.
  • The pigmentation is impressive, that can be worn both sheer and layered on in just a few sweeps for opaque coverage.  It fades gracefully throughout the day without looking patchy, which is how I like my lipsticks to last.
  • The scent is rosy bsdfut I can still taste the waxes & oils in the lipstick.
  • Verdict: It’s hard to imagine how such a great lipstick is not yet widely known.  I highly recommmend it to anyone that loves a boost of moisture in their creamy pigmented lipstick.  Google it and you’ll easily find the online stockists.  My favourite shade is Three which is described as a candy pink, but on my flushed lip tone it’s more a posy pink that fades into a pink MLBB.

Brand: Covergirl
Range: Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm
Shade: 235 Tru Luv
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm is a tinted lip balm that glides on really smoothly leaving lips with a sheen with a “barely there” tint.
  • Available in 12 shades (see screenshot below), 235 Tru Luv is a sheer nude and has a noticeably waxy taste.
  • It’s both moisturising and waxy, but doesn’t smooth any lip lines making it more suitable for those who don’t have concerns with lip lines.
  • Verdict: I can see this being a hit among under 18 year olds, but the high wax content doesn’t agree with my 30-something lips, making them look worse (due to the wax accentuating lip lines) once all the moisture has absorbed.  The “barely there” sheer does “nude” out my flushed lip tone really well without being streaky.

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Violet Fatale
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

Each Lip Color is Tom Ford’s modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

  • Katherine describes Violet Fatale as purple in the tube but fuschia on the lips.  It has medium-high pigmentation and a lot more opaque than Cherry Lush.
  • Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post to find out her verdict on this lipstick’s moisturising and long lasting properties.
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Ruby Woo & Russian Red
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

      Katherine describes

Ruby Woo

      as a slightly brighter and cool toned red than

Russian Red

      which is a deeper rich neutral red.   Texture wise,

Ruby Woo

      is a retro-matte finish whilst

Russian Red

    is a normal matte finish.

  • The similaries and differences between MAC Ruby and Russian Red extend beyond first appearances.  Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post for her detailed comparison of Ruby Woo vs. Russian Red, including which of the two has an easier texture to apply!
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!
