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.

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.

PALMER’S Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Balm SPF 15 – Review, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Palmer’s
Range: Cocoa Butter Formula
Flavour: Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Balm SPF 15
Reviewed by yours truly: Yishan

  • A whiff of this lip balm & I’m instantly reminded of Cherry Ripe, Australia’s oldest chocolate bar that has cherries and coconut coated in dark chocolate.
  • It’s not only deliciously scented, but also contains anti-oxidants and SPF 15 for sun protection.
  • The silky texture is thanks to dimethicone (a silicone-based polymer) which leaves lips with a diffused finish, but it doesn’t smooth lip lines.
  • I did try to swatch this on my arm, but it only left a subtle dark cherry stain so I skipped photographing it.
  • Verdict:  The subtle “dark chocolate cherry” tint on the lips will appeal to those with darker lips, as there are not that many lip tints out there with such a shade. Despite the “ultra moisturising claims” it’s lightweight in moisture for my lip condition, making this product better suited to younger lips or those who live in more humid climates.
