Brand: Ellis Faas
Range: Hot Lips
Shades: Bright Orange L402 & Deep Pink L407
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Ellis Faas Hot Lips is unlike the original formulas (Creamy / Milky / Glaze) in that it’s densely pigmented with a creamy and slightly glossy finish that’s moisturising.
  • Only a small amount is needed for vibrant colour, and the sponge tip applicator helps to smooth the product out for an even finish.
  • Available in 9 shades, ranging from bright reds and fluo pinks to rose violets and  pink nudes.
  • Verdict: This liquid lipstick will appeal to those that like the idea of a hybrid between cream formula and a “balmy” sheen.  It gives lips a painted effect, making this more suitable for lips that are well sculpted with minimal lip lines.

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

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

BYS Lip Gloss & Lipstick Duo – Dusty Rose

Brand: BYS
Range: Lip Gloss & Lipstick Duo
Shade: Dusty Rose

  • Double-ended lipstick & gloss duo that’s cheaper than a small latte!
  • The lipstick is creamy & smooth with an even coverage, but has a tendency to accentuate lip flakes as it’s not moisturising.
  • But once the lipgloss is layered on top, the finish becomes creamy smooth.  Whilst the lipstick does crease with the gloss, it’s certainly not noticeable from a distance.
  • Available in 13 shades, Dusty Rose is a creamy pale nude with the slightest hint of rose.
  • Verdict: I wouldn’t wear either on their own, but I’m really impressed with the lipstick & gloss combined. In fact I think the overall finish looks comparable with my mid-priced creamy nude glosses.  This is as affordable as it gets! Two thumbs up!

Swatched over Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm.

Brand: Hourglass
Range: Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick
Shade: Ballet
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Decadence in a bullet: creamy yet silky, richly pigmented yet lightweight the formula is feels moisturising, luxurious and leaves lips with a subtle shine.
  • Contains a blend of skin-smoothing, moisture-enhancing and reparative ingredients such as Vitamin E.
  • It’s hard to see from the photos, but the packaging feels luxuriously heavy with a firm twist required to close & open the lipstick
  • Water-resistant and long lasting. Paraben free and phthalate free.
  • Available in 12 shades, Ballet is described as a “fun feminine pink shade” that looks like baby pink on my lips.
  • Verdict: As I mentioned in yesterday’s review of Nocturnal, these lipsticks are a must have for the lippie lover.  The high grip creamy texture means this lasts comfortably and moisturised for hours & stays looking polished at the same time. I’m so impressed with Ballet, as light blue pink tones rarely sit well on my flushed lip tone.  Ballet hugs my lips beautifully without any streaks, even without lip balm or a lip brush.  HOLY GRAIL.

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

RRP: £ 22.00
