MAC Lipglass – Good Times


LIP GLOSS, Lips, MAC, NC20, Yishan | by — September 22, 2011

Tags: , ,

Brand: MAC
Range: Tinted Lipglass
Shade: Good Times (MAC Me Over Collection – LE)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Good Times is a “pale mauve”  with a sheer milky high shine finish.
  • This shade was used in the MAC Me Over  “elegantly edgy” transformation for Xee & Sharon, featuring cool-toned smoky greys whites and beiges.
  • I love Xee’s androgynous look the most, pairing the pale lip with uber-bold brows and eyes.
  • As this lipglass is semi-sheer, recommend wearing this on top of lips prepped with a nude lip liner or lipstick.

MAYBELLINE Super Stay 24 Hour Lip Color

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Super Stay 24 Hour Lip Color
Shades: Everything except for Everlasting Wine
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Incredibly long lasting lip colour formulated with “lip gripping” polymers and waxy film formers to resist budging.
  • The shade range is split into four colour categories: Red/Coral, Pink, Nude/Brown and Plum.
  • Dual ended packaging, with the liquid lip tint in one end and a glossy stick balm in the other.
  • To test whether it truly lasted 24 hours, I applied a full coat in the afternoon, wiped lips after eating dinner and went to bed with whatever was left on my lips.  The next morning, the residue was STILL THERE.  I know it’s gross to sleep with a lipgloss, but it didn’t smear on the sheets and I really wanted to test its 24 hour claims.
  • Incredibly moisturising and comfortable without any awkward taste.
  • The formula grips lips very snugly, to the point that it doubled the number of my lip lines.
  • Verdict: After having disappointing experiences with long lasting lip glosses from Revlon and Max Factor, I have to say this deserves a whopping 9/10 and in my “highly recommended” list.  To get 10/10 from me, Maybelline needs to make the formula line-smoothing and not accentuating.

Timeless Toffee

Due to the lip lines being accentuated with this lip colour, I’d recommend it only to those with smaller lips with a smooth surface. I didn’t swatch them all as the formula is very hard to remove. I needed 2 rounds of cleansing oil plus 2 rounds of toner to remove these from my arm.

RRP: $21.95 AUD

LIPSTICK, MAX FACTOR, Yishan | by — June 10, 2010


Brand: Max Factor
Range: Colour Collections (Select by skintone Fair, Medium, Dark to browse all shades)
Shade: Maple (839), Midnight Mauve (711)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Max Factor’s Colour Collections is designed to let you easily choose the perfect shade for your skin tone. They have 25 shades spread across Fair / Medium / Dark skintones.
  • Maple: A coppery beige, recommended for medium skin tones.
  • Midnight Mauve: Deep pink mauve, recommended for dark skin tones
  • Hydrating, smoothing & applies evenly without sinking into lip lines.
  • Feels soft & comfortable on lips.
  • Downside: The packaging is unexciting & the taste needs to improved. It’s bearable but noticeable enough for lipstick snobs.
  • Other than that, the hues, texture and finish certainly won’t disappoint.

RRP: $19.95 AUD
Available in Australia at: Myer, Target, Kmart, Priceline, Big W and selected pharmacies.

REVLON Colorburst Lipstick – Mauve


LIPSTICK, PRIMPED, REVLON, Yishan | by — April 27, 2010

Tags: ,

Brand: Revlon
Range: Colorburst Lipstick
Shade: Mauve #005 (Comes in 20 shades)
Swatched by yours truly: Akisa (I received this as a PRIMPED VIP reviewer)

  • Highly pigmented. Covers uneven lip tones (if you have them)
  • Moisturising & glides smoothly
  • Looks pink/mauve in photos, but in natural light it’s a darker mauve like the product image.
  • Extra brownie points for not having the cheap taste/scent like some drugstore lipsticks.

The ‘Carnation‘ shade from the same range has been swatched by Jess.
