Brand: Revlon
Range: Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Shades: Berry Allure, Sugar Violet, Fuchsia Finery, Pink Pop, Pango Peach, Snow Pink, Super Natural, Rosy Future, Kiss Me Coral, Fatal Apple, Raising Rouge
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are Revlon’s newest addition to their lip gloss range, and come in a silky formula that boosts hydration and subtly plumps lips.
  • Available in 12 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • I’m really impressed by the pigmentation of these lipgloss, in that even the sheerest formula gives a beautiful soft veil of colour that looks great even on its own.
  • Non-tacky and feels really smooth and moisturising with a high shine.
  • Verdict: These are really great quality for their price point, and can be worn on their own as a sheer MLBB gloss.  With wedding season at its peak at this time of year in Australia, these glosses are an affordable choice for the bridal party that’s easy to squeeze in an evening bag and touch up throughout the day.

Brand: NP Set
Range: Gloss and Go Duo
Shades: Palm Beach & Venice Beach
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • NP Set Gloss and Go Duo comes with a clear lip gloss and a long wearing lip stain available in 2 shades – Palm Beach (shimmery peach) and Venice Beach (pink coral)
  • The lip stain applies like a lip lacquer, and on its own it looks pretty average, but the moment the clear gloss is layered on top the colour immediately becomes more vibrant.
  • Although it contains Vitamin E to nourish lips, I wouldn’t say that the lip stain feels particularly moisturising, nor is it drying either.  The gloss however does adds a cushiony comfort to the lips.
  • Verdict: As testament to how budge proof it is, Venice Beach was really difficult to remove, requiring several rounds of heavy duty makeup remover like Biodemra or Clinique Take the Day Off to remove all traces of the vibrant pink colour.  This will appeal to those who love a fresh summer look with the “clean eye look” accentuated by a punchy lip colour.

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Violet Fatale
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

Each Lip Color is Tom Ford’s modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

  • Katherine describes Violet Fatale as purple in the tube but fuschia on the lips.  It has medium-high pigmentation and a lot more opaque than Cherry Lush.
  • Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post to find out her verdict on this lipstick’s moisturising and long lasting properties.
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte finish)
Swatched by the lovely: Vesna

  • Vesna describes Flat Out Fabulous as a lovely bold matte darker fuchsia in a retro matte finish. Her experience was that it wears more comfortably than Heaux despite both belonging in the same lipstick finish range.
  • Read the rest of Vesna’s blog post (also available in English) to find out how well this lipstick lasted throughout the day, and also which other MAC lipstick shades come in the Retro Matte finishes.
  • Thanks Vesna for the lovely swatch!

Brand: Revlon
Range: Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
Shades: Romantic, Smitten, Sweetheart, Cherish, Darling
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain’s are a lightweight lipstain with a pigmented flush of colour that’s long lasting and exceptional staining power that lasts for hours and hours.
  • No lip balm required beforehand – the smooth gel formula glides on smoothly & softens lips for a supple, conditioned and moistured finish that looks fuller.
  • Comes in a retractable chubby crayon applicator – no sharpening required.
  • Available in 10 shades – Honey, Darling, Cherish, Lovesick, Sweetheart, Smitten, Charm, Romantic, Precious and Adore.
  • Light peppermint fragrance.
  • Tip: Make sure your lips are well exfoliated beforehand, otherwise this balm will stain in uneven patches.
  • Verdict: As a testament to how amazing the staying power is, I had to photograph the lip swatches over 2 days (well spaced apart) and in a strategic sequence starting with the lightest to the darkest shade to make sure the stains from the previous swatch doesn’t interfere with the next shade.  I’m also amazed by how pigmented & moisturising they are without the need for any lip balm.   If you decide to change your lip colour just as soon as you applied it, the best makeup remover for taking off this stain is Clinique Take the Day Make Up Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips.

Swatched without any lip balm.

Darling & Cherish are better suited to pale lip tones as it contrasts against pigmented lips. That said, I liked the sweet pink stain that Cherish left on my lips as opposed to the red/fuchsia stains from the other shades.

The pink shades may look deceptively similar on my arm, but as you can see they are strikingly different on lips.

RRP: $17.95 AUD
