Brand: Hourglass
Range: Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick
Shade: Nocturnal
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, Nocturnal is Hourglass’s best-selling shade, a deep berry shade
  • Verdict: The first thing that springs at you when applying, is how much grip there is in the creamy texture without accentuating dry bits. Stays comfortable and moisturised for hours & is long lasting.  Even after hours of wear, the “grip” makes it fade into a light stain that still looks polished (especially if you used a lip brush to define edges).  Forget must-try, this is a must-have for the lippie lover.   

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

RRP: £ 22.00 + shipping

I purchased this product from Zuneta.

Brand: Rimmel
Range: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick
Shades: 04, 05, 06, 07, 11, 12, 14
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Available in 9 shades, these lippies are creamy, highly pigmented with a light reflecting sheen for added dimension.
  • I’m loving the chic, matte black packaging with Kate’s signature & embossed Rimmel logo. It’s one of the best packaged drugstore lipsticks I’ve seen to date.
  • The grip in the creamy texture hugs lips & lines very snugly, so be sure to wear over a smoothing lip balm for a smoother finish & longer lasting moisture.
  • It’s not everyday that I am impressed with so many shades in the same collection, but all six shades swatched beautifully on my flushed lips with no streaks or variations in texture (as can be the case with different pigments). Even #04 didn’t show any signs of sinking into lines, a trait often found in deep purple / wine shades.
  • Verdict: Highly recommend the nudey shades in the range (7 & 14), and the mesmerizingly seductive deep red (11). 12 is also a great pick for channeling 2012’s Pantone Color of the Year – Tangerine Orange.

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

I swatched #04 on a different day to the other swatches, and my lips weren’t 100% that day – not the fault of the lipstick.

RRP: $11.95 AUD

Brand: Guerlain
Range: Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact
: Gabrielle #60
Swatched by the lovely: Bluebell

  • What they say: Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact contains a ruby-powder formula that interacts with the light and creates a jaw-dropping pout of perfection. At first glaze, lips will be left defined, smoothed, plumped, and hydrated.
  • Bluebell describes shade Gabrielle as “a warm rose but turns cool toned against her complexion.  Very creamy with medium coverage and slight shimmers, lips look plump and slightly glossy giving a beautiful glow.  It’s so moisturising that lips still feel comfortable even after removing it.”
  • Thanks Bluebell for the gorgeous swatch! Rouge G is next on my shopping list!

CLINIQUE Long Last Lipstick – Runway Coral – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Clinique
Range: Long Last Lipstick
Shade: Runway Coral
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Runway Coral is a limited edition online exclusive shade, which made its debut in New York Fashion Week on the runways at Karen Walker’s Spring 2012 Show.
  • Created by Clinique’s Global Color artist Jenna Mennard, the bold coral shade was paired with peachy cheeks and neutral eyes with flirty lashes.
  • It looks like a true coral in the tube, but transforms into a pink coral on my lip tone.
  • Texture is creamy-matte with moderate traction which requires exfoliation beforehand & lip balm for a smoother creamy finish.
  • Tip: Creamy-matte lip formulas are best applied with a natural fibre lip brush to make sure the lipstick grips onto every single crease on your lip.
  • Verdict: I love how this spring coral shade brightens up my face! Perfect pink coral shades don’t come by often, grab this limited edition shade before you regret it.


RRP: $36 AUD
