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: Nars
Range: Pure Matte Lipstick
Shade: Amsterdam
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

Bright. Bold. Perfectly matte. This super-rich lipstick provides high-impact payoff: an ultra-pigmented, long-wearing formula that glides on effortlessly with comfortable wear. Contains wild mango butter, known to provide advanced moisturizing properties to repair dryness and scaling.  Long-wearing application.  Enriched with Vitamin E and açai oil for antioxidant benefits.

  • Katherine describes Amsterdam as a darker version of its official description of “garnet red”.  On her skin tone, the color is slightly more cool-toned, leaning towards plum or burgundy. It takes a couple of swipes to produce an opaque, even finish.

Shade: Ruby Woo & Russian Red

      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!

Katherine, LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC25 | by — January 8, 2014

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!
