Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Ruby Woo & Russian Red
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

      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!
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!

Brand: Jane Iredale
Range: PureMoist Lipstick
Shade: Margi
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Jane Iredale’s new PureMoist Lipstick range are an incredibly moisturising lipstick that’s dresses lips in moist veil of rich pigment.
  • Formulated with organic pomegranate and blackberry fruit, and enriched with Orange Peel Wax, Avocado, Moringa oil and Sunflower Seed Oil to nourish and repair lips.  Also infused with Vitamins A & C and Cofee Seed Extract for antioxidant protection to retain moisture and elasticity.
  • The absence of lead, FD&C dyes, perfumes and all chemical synthetic ingredients means tit’s safe to use on any skin – even post laser, Restalyne or Collagen injections.
  • The slim bullet makes application a breeze on the go.
  • Available in 24 shades, Margi is  a cherry blue red that can be layered into a richer red.
  • Verdict: Red lipsticks are nearly always synonymous with the notion of being “high maintenance”, requiring a lip brush or even a lip liner.  But not Margi. What I love about this formula is that it’s super easy to apply without needing any lip prep whatsoever.  No lip balm required, no lip liner required with the intense pigmentation of Margi, and a lip brush is useful only if you want it seamlessly blended into lip lines.   Two thumbs up for those that want an easy-to-wear red lippie.

I used a lip brush to smooth it into the creases but it’s not really required.

Brand: Napoleon Perdis
RangeDéVine Goddess Lipstick
Shade: Aphrodite
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • It’s been 3 years since I last swatched NP’s DéVine Goddess Lipstick in “Andromeda”!  It’s a creamy lipstick that’s packed with pigment that you can layer on to build coverage.
  • It does take several layers to build coverage to achieve an rich opaque red, but by layering it on with a lip brush you get a transfer-resistant finish that’s long lasting and fades gracefully without any uneven patches.
  • Whilst it contains herbal extracts and antioxidants to care for your lips, it applies creamy but sets into a satin finish that’s non-drying.
  • Available in 20 shades, Aphrodite is a classic blue red that’s ultra glamorous and instantly whitens teeth.
  • Verdict: Thumbs up for a flattering shade of blue-red that suits most skin tones, and another thumbs up for being long lasting yet non-drying.  The only thing that doesn’t rock my boat is the packaging. Given that it costs almost the same as Clinique lipsticks in Australia ($1 difference), I expect more than the bulky case & see-through plastic.  That said, Aphrodite will appeal to those that love a rich blue-red in a satin finish that’s more forgiving than matte.
