MAYBELLINE Baby Lips Loves Color – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


LIP TREATMENTS, Lips, MAYBELLINE, NC20, Yishan | by — February 26, 2013

Tags: , , ,

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Baby Lips Loves Color
Shades: Cherry Kiss, Berry Crush, Rose Addict, Pink Lolita
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • For the longest time, I have been wishing that Maybelline would release tinted versions of their flavoured Baby Lips.   Finally they have released 4  new tinted shades – Cherry Kiss, Berry Crush, Rose Addict and Pink Lolita.
  • They are a sheerer than I hoped for, but is perfect for those who like to keep things subtle.
  • The reason I love Baby Lips so much is because it’s a great daily lip balm that’s light in texture, gives a healthy sheen, contains SPF20 and looks great under most lipsticks – all for only $3.95 AUD.
  • The only setback is that it’s not rich enough for severely dry lips, or as an overnight treatment.
  • Verdict: I keep one in my bag, one on my “swatch station” and my blogging desk, and have a few more in my drawer as backups.  Also perfect for girls that are a few years off from being allowed to wear lippies, and want to enhance their lips without looking too grown up.

BOBBI BROWN Creamy Matte Lip Color – Jenna, Razzberry – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


BOBBI BROWN, Lips, LIPSTICK, NC20, Yishan | by — November 13, 2012

Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Creamy Matte Lip Color
Shades: Jenna, Razzbery
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

Creamy Matte Lip Color is a revolutionary matte lipstick formula that uniquely combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability.  Creamy, moisturising and highly pigmented, it glides comfortably onto lips, but feels extremely lightweight.   Not to mention, it’s got great staying power too.

  • Intense coverage in just one sweep, it’s surprisingly soft, comfortable and so moisturising that you don’t even need lip balm underneath  (provided your lips are flake free).
  • The lipstick softens with the warmth of the lips and releases film formers that create a soft & comfortable canvas for the highly concentrated pigments to work their mojo.
  • The moisturising properties are thanks to a blend of special emollients and soft waxes that form a conditioning barrier to lock in moisture.
  • While it promises to be transfer and feather proof for up to 8 hours, I find it’s best to blot and layer for smudge-proof results.
  • Available in 12 shades, Jenna is a vibrant tangerine orange and Razzberry is a gorgeous plummy berry shade.
  • As the lipstick shape has a round top & is so creamy and intense, I recommend applying this with a lip brush for both precision and a longer lasting finish.
  • Verdict: The bar has been raised with Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Matte Lip Colour.  It’s one of the most moisturising and comfortable creamy matte lipsticks that doesn’t crease or slip on lip lines or flakes.  In fact it makes lips look like they’re dressed in soft fabric.  A must-try for pigmented lippy lovers – you won’t be disappointed.

Swatched without lip balm, because this lippy doesn’t need any.
Jenna looks slightly more matte than Razzberry because it was swatched second & my lips lost some moisture when I removed Razzberry from my lips without applying any lip balm in between.  Even so I still think the results are awesome for a creamy matte formula.

RRP: $44 AUD

MAKEUP FOREVER Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick 35 – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


Lips, LIPSTICK, MAKEUP FOREVER, NC20, Yishan | by — September 30, 2012


Brand: Makeup Forever
Range: Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick
Shade: 35 (Satin Finish)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Densely pigmented & delivers rich true-to-colour in just a stroke (It’s 50% more pigmented than traditional lipstick)
  • Long lasting, moisturising and the creamy texture glides effortlessly and lips stay soft and comfortable throughout the day thanks to a blend of 3 natural waxes
  • Available in three finishes—matte, pearly, and satin—for varying effects.
  • 35 is a warm raspberry shade in a satin finish.
  • The taste is very subtle & hardly noticeable – a slightly sweeter version of the classic lipstick taste
  • Formulated without parabens
  • Verdict: This lippy will appeal to those who love a densely pigmented lipstick that gives lips a soft fabric look & feel.  Whilst I haven’t tried the other finishes (eg. matte, pearl) yet, I’m quite content with the Satin finish as it absorbs into a demi-matte finish anyway.  I’m also amazed by how comfortable it feels on lips, with minimal transfer there is once the lipstick is set – barely a trace of a lip print on tissues or cups.  Two thumbs up!

RRP: $19 USD
