Brand: Estee Lauder
Range: Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipsticks
Shades: Demure, Rebel, Rock Candy, Naked
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Launched as part of Estee Lauder’s “Pretty Naughty” collection, the Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick are a refined lightweight matte formula that leaves a satin finish with light reflecting pearls.
  • They hug the lips snugly upon application, and in just a sweep you get an ultra matte pigmented finish that instantly transforms your lip texture into a matte fabric-like texture.
  • Infused with fruit extracts that add moisture, and highly pigmented.
  • Available in 4 shades – Demure, Rebel, Rock Candy & Naked.
  • Verdict: I must admit, when I first heard about the launch of the “sheer matte” formula I was intrigued to try it as Estee Lauder’s makeup are renowned for their sophisticated textures.  Despite looking pretty in the delicate slim packaging & swatching beautifully on my arm, this didn’t work at all for my lip condition – which has a lot of lip creases and looks unforgiving in dry formulas.  Except for Demure (a deep pink), all other shades were also too pale against my flushed lip tone.  The only lip condition that I can imagine this working for is smooth lip surfaces (ie. younger lips) with a pale lip tone.
  • I didn’t see any point in featuring unflattering lip swatches proving that it didn’t work, so I shall leave you with pretty picture instead of how much better it looks in the packaging and on my arms.

Brand: Dior
Range: Dior Rouge
Shade: Plissé Soleil 532
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Rouge Dior lipsticks a timeless classic that’s sure to please with their sophisticated and plush creamy formula that applies like a dream, thanks to the “marine crista” ingredient which smoothes and re-shapes the lips.
  • It’s rich in pigment & long lasting, only needing a few sweeps for full coverage. Lips feel like a creamy cushion that feels moisturised and comforted.
  • Plissé Soleil looks like a mandarin in the bullet, but applies like a pale peach with fine gold shimmers that can be worn sheer or layered on for a bolder effect.
  • Verdict: Plissé Soleil will appeal to those who love a delicate peachy lip colour.  This shade is most flattering on pale lip tones, but will also suit a slightly flushed lip tone.  Any darker & the streakiness will show up, as is the case with many coral/peach lipsticks out there. My favourite aspect of this shade is the way the finely milled gold shimmers glisten in light, making lips look more dimensional and seemingly moist.

I applied a sheer layer as it tends to streak on lip lines. The finish is closer to the arm swatch if you layer it on.

Brand: Rimmel 芮谜
Range: Apocalips Lip Lacquer
Shades: Star Gazer, Phenomenon, Nude Eclipse, Solstice, Celestial, Nova, Apocalips, Stellar
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Apocalips Lip Lacquer combines the intense colour of a lipstick with a smooth lacquer-like shine, with a luscious liquid packed with pure colour pigments.
  • Creamy, conditioning texture with full opaque coverage that sits comfortably and is long lasting.  Immediately transforms dry lips to a moist lacquer finish.
  • Available in 9 shades – Apocaliptic 303 is the shade worn by Kate Moss in the campaign.
  • The applicator features an in-built reservoir (similar to YSL Glossy Stain) helping the lip lacquer to glide on easily and coats lips evenly, so you won’t get any gloopy finish with accidental over-application.
  • Tendency to smear on teeth if you apply it too perfectly in inner sections of your lips.  I recommend applying a small amount & blotting with a tissue.
  • Verdict: Really impressed with this range for a number of reasons – firstly, the nude and gold shades completely concealed my lip tone without any streaks or patches.  With a flushed lip tone like mine this is a real treat!  Secondly, the texture is not only soft and comfortable but is also conditioning and adds volume to dry tired lips.  The only drawback is that the staying power didn’t last on me and the centre of the lips wears off while eating, leaving a ring of liquid lipstick.  For this reason (and the tendency to smudge on teeth), my favourite shades are the lowest maintenance ones – Celestial and Solstice.
