LANCOME Color Design Lipstick – Ooh La La! Reviews, Photos, Swatches


LANCOME, Lips, LIPSTICK, NC20, Yishan | by — September 22, 2013

Brand: Lancome
Range: Color Design Lipstick
Shade: Ooh La La! (Metallic)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Believe it or not, this is my first Lancome Color Design Lipstick and I’m really impressed by its moisturising full coverage formula that has great ‘grip’ and an emollient finish that revives a flat looking pout.
  • Infused with soothing ingredients, it feels soft, sits comfortably on lips and the rich pigments are transfer-resistant meaning it will last well throughout the day.
  • Ooh La La! is described as a “metallic raspberry golden rose”.
  • Available in cream, sheen, shimmer, metallic and matte.
  • Verdict: It only took one application to achieve full coverage, and the raspberry tones blended seamlessly with my flushed lip tone and faded gracefully through the day.  It looks bronze in the bullet, but the raspberry tones become more apparent once it sets on lips.  Normally I’m not a fan of metallic finishes, but this adds a lustruous dimension without making lips look aged. I recommend Ooh La La for very pigmented lips or medium/dark skin tones.

I got this as part of a Gift with Purchase, but it’s avaliable on Lancome counters.

NVEY ECO Hydrating Lip Lustre – Ruby

Range: Hydrating Lip Lustre
Shade: Ruby
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  •  NVEY ECO is an Australian organic makeup brand launched in 2005 that takes “green” cosmetics to the next level of perfection.
  • Free of parabens, petrochemicals or synthetic fragrances.  Not tested on animals & made in Australia.
  • Lip Lustres are lip lacquers that are rich in lustrous pigment and high in shine, and comes with an eco-friendly doe wand applicator (that’s unnecessarily long).
  • The texture glides incredibly smoothly & feels nourishing at the same time due to the organic beeswax.
  • There’s absolutely no stickiness, but there is a subtle organic taste which I’m ok with.
  • Available in 10 shades, Ruby is a metallic plum.
  • Verdict: Two thumbs up for a high performing organic lip gloss that manages to deliver on quality, comfort and a gorgeous shade all in one.  The metallic plum is simply divine & perfect for nights out or the festive season.

I’d be happier with the packaging if the lid wasn’t soooo loooong.

It’s not often I fall in love with plum or metallic shades, but there’s just something different about Ruby that screams appeal.

Swatches a little lumpy on my arm, but rest assured it goes on smoothly on lips.

RRP: $29.95 AUD
Available at the NVEY ECO website.

Brand: Illamasqua
Range: Lipstick (Toxic Nature Collection)
Shade: Atomic
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Released as part of Illamasqua’s Toxic Nature Collection, Atomic is described as a “fuchsia violet” with a pearl finish.  It’s deeper than other fucshia shades I own which makes it wearable without looking shockingly pink.
  • Link love: Also check out Lipglossiping & Fables in Fashion’s swatches of the same shade.
  • Verdict: Personally I prefer a brighter fuchsia shade against my skin tone, but I love how the pearl finish adds a twist to a matte bold pink look.
