Brand: Revlon
Range: ColorBurst Lip Butter
Shades: Fig Jam, Candy Apple, Cotton Candy, Berry Smoothie, Sugar Plum, Créme Brulee
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Say goodbye to dull, dry lips with Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters, the most highly raved lipstick on the internet, with bloggers & Youtubers in a craze over the buttery smooth, hydrating balmy texture of this sheer lipstick.
  • Available in 20 “mouth watering” shades, these contain a combination of Mango, Shea and Coconut Butters to soothe lips naturally
  • Sheer when applied directly from the tube, but buildable to medium(ish) coverage if applied with a lip brush.  Finish is juicy & high in shine.
  • Naturally scented with vanilla
  • Disguises dry and tired lips, transforming them into a juicy pout.
  • Verdict: A really versatile lipstick that can be worn sheer (by applying directly from the tube) or layered on for extra coverage by applying with a lip brush for a polished look. My lips stay moisturised for several hours & it fades into a natural tint.  I recommend going for the more vibrant shades in the collection seeing as they are so buildable.

I used a lip brush to apply a generous amount for a pigmented swatch.  No lip balm.

When applied directly from the tube, the finish is as per the arm swatch below.

RRP: $21.95 AUD

Brand: Rouge Bunny Rouge
Range: Colour Burst Lipstick (Hues of Enchantment)
Shade: Prey of Lust
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  •  Rouge Bunny Rouge cosmetics inspired by the romantic, opulent and whimsical, yet centered on wearable, blendable and adaptable formulas.
  • Easy to glide, hydrating and feels so soft and creamy.
  • No streaking, sits comfortably and evenly on the lip surface, with lip loving ingredients such as Vitamin E to nourish and protect from dryness and ageing.
  • The range consists of 3 separate formulas to give you slightly different texture, coverage and finish.  All are infused with Orchid Flower Extract, Meadowfoam, Manoi Butter or Inca Inch oil.
  • Prey of Lust is a light beige, a more natural alternative to ultra nude lips that won’t wash you out.
  • Verdict: This has got to be one of my favourite creamy lipsticks & also hits my soft spot for caramel hues!  I love the texture more than the hyped up Suqqu Creamy Glow lipsticks, as it is more moisturising & softens lips without streaking over lip lines. Highly recommended.

I purchased this product from Zuneta.com

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Color Sensational Lip Color
Shades: Beige Rose #602, Ice Tea #715, Luminous Cocoa #760
Swatched by yours truly: Akisa

  • Maybelline have added 10 new shades to the Color Sensational range, which I’ve spread over 3 posts starting with the “veil like” nudes.
  • The new shades are translucent & lightweight, but feature the signature nourishing feel.
  • Tastes fruity & juicy, reminds me of fruit chews like Starbursts candy.  One of the YUMMIEST lipsticks I’ve tasted to date.
  • Verdict: My favourite is “Beige Rose” – which looks like a nude translucent veil over lips.  It’s by no means comparable to Lancome in texture, but the effect reminds me of Lancome L’Absolu Nu in “Beige de Soie” #201.   Honourable mention goes to “Luminous Cocoa” which looks like a chocolate tint, great for those that like a neutral “my lips but better” finish.

All swatches applied over a slick of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm.

What’s your verdict on nude veil lipsticks & chocolate tints?

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Color Sensational Lip Color
Shades: Barely Brown, Rum Riche, Bronzed, Warm Latte, Mochachino
Swatched by yours truly: Akisa

  • Maybelline have added 5 new neutral (and very warm) shades to the Color Sensational range in a mix of satin and lustruous finishes.
  • To make room for these new shades, Maybelline have discontinued “Caramel Kiss” and “Toffee Tango”.
  • Glides smoothly and evenly with a creamy nourishing feel due to the key ingredient – honey nectar.
  • Lightweight yet pigmented, with a dessert-like taste & doesn’t sink into lip lines.
  • Verdict: My top picks are “Warm Latte” (pair this glimmering golden lip with smouldering eyes) and “Rum Riche” (a gorgeous plum shade that’s making me look forward to autumn already!)
