  • I used to think that having yellow skin-tones meant that I had to avoid blue-toned lip shades. That was until I came acrossChillin’.
  • On its own, it softens the look of pigmented lips, giving it a ‘baby milky pink’ finish. Unlike nude lipglosses (which doesn’t sit well on pigmented lips) this one will leave others wondering how you achieved a paler lip with such a sheer gloss.
  • Worn on top of nude lipstick, it adds a milky cool-tone to flat beiges.
  • Give it a go on counters & see it for yourself!!

Bare lips, which turned red after swatching 4 other shades before this shot!
And after appling ‘Chillin’…
While others want colour on their lips,
I get excited about products that tone my lips down a notch~

I was extremely lucky to get a personal lip consultation by Australia’s MAC senior make up artist, Nicole Thompson!! This is one of the shades I asked her to try on me, which I got to take home~

This is a dupe of Benefit’s new Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Diamond Rose, except that this one is super tingly to enhance your lip volume.

  • Mineral lipgloss infused with antioxidant Vitamins A and E
  • Ultra shiny, but not sticky or tacky
  • Tingly cooling sensation
  • Does not contain Parabens
, Sulfates
 or Phthalates

I got this from my lovely sis-in-law~

  • Awarded “Best Shimmery Gloss” from ‘Cosmo Girl’ 2007 Beauty Awards
  • Sheer colour, with light reflecting shimmers
  • Just the right amount of sweetness with a light almond scent
  • Smoothes lip lines
  • Non-sticky and feels very lightweight on lips
  • Don’t be alarmed when you find that the wand doesn’t swab much product. That’s the point – you don’t need much and it delivers on all its promises even when you apply a thin layer.

Unlike everyone else, I like glassy-lips and am willing to put up with uber-sticky glosses for its effect and staying power. But this is the best performing lightweight gloss I’ve ever tried – take a look for yourself~ This is going in my work makeup pouch.

This product was sent to me for my review.
