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

L’OREAL Nutri Shine Lipstick

Brand: L’Oreal Paris
Range: Nutri Shine Lipstick
Shades: Strawberry Juice (B500) & Shiny Apricot (C401)

  • Nutri Shine has a unique formula of Royal Jelly (cellular regenerating) and Shea Butter (rich in Vitamins A, E & F) that melts onto lips, keeping it smooth and nourished.
  • The high shine finish is due to light reflecting fine crystal polymers  that creates a juicy finish like a lip balm.
  • Available in 10 shades with colour coded packaging  from intense to nearly nude shades.
  • It glides on really smoothly & melts immediately, leaving lips feeling like it’s wearing a moisturising lip balm – not at all like a lipstick.
  • Compared to Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters, this melts more on lips, is sheerer and more light reflecting with the crystal polymers. It also feels more like a lip balm, whereas Revlon Lip Butters do feel like lipstick (albeit a buttery one).
  • Verdict: A great choice for those that like to keep it sheer, and like the idea of a lipstick that feels like a lip balm that drenches lips with moisture.

Swatched over a thin layer of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm.

I used a lip brush to create fuller coverage. It’s a lot sheerer when applied directly from the bullet.

RRP: $22.95 AUD
