Tags: , , , , , ,

Brand: Avon
Range: Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss
Shades: Fiery Red, Mauve Movement, Pink Watermelon, Nude, Tangerine Gleam, Intense Plum, Nude Muse, Tickled Pink
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Glosses are a moisturising gloss that has a soft texture that doesn’t feel sticky or tacky.
  • Sculpts lips into a high shine lacquer finish won’t feather or bleed
  • Available in 9 shades – 8 of which are featured here, and the other shade is Clear (not pictured).
  • Very mild scent that reminds me of cupcakes.
  • Verdict: Some shades are sheerer than others, with the most pigmented ones being Intense Plum, Fiery Red and Tangerine Plum.  My favourites are Mauve Movement (a mauve MLBB shade) and Pink Watermelon (sheer pink with shimmers).  For just $14.99 these are very reasonably priced for their quality, and are versatile to be worn both on their own or layered over lipstick for a dimensional finish.

MAYBELLINE Color Whisper – Review, Photos, Swatches


Lips, LIPSTICK, MAYBELLINE, NC20, Yishan | by — September 25, 2013

Tags: , , , , , ,

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Color Whisper
Shades: Petal Rebel, Oh La Lilac, Pink Possibilities, Who Wore It Red-er, One Size Fits Pearl, Lust for Blush, Orange Attitude, Mad for Magenta
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Maybelline Color Whispers are a sheer lipstick with a translucent gel formula that doesn’t contain heavy waxes or oils.
  • They’re ultra lightweight and glide smoothly leaving a moist sheen.
  • Despite the moist gel formula, I didn’t find this moisturising enough for my dry lips and needed to prep lips with lip balm first for a smoother finish.  I also disagree with comparison that these are similar to Revlon Lip Butters as the latter is much more buttery with a smoother finish than Color Whisper.
  • On my flushed lip tone, the paler shades appeared streaky and accentuated my lip flaws.  Whereas the darker shades like Mad for Magenta and Who Wore It Red-er  gave my lips a punchy popsicle tint.  Orange Attitude is a wearable sheer orange, and Lust for Blush will appeal to those that love their MLBB’s.
  • Verdict: If I have to choose one shade to try from this range, it would be Mad for Magenta as it’s a really easy-to-wear magenta that looks good even when sheer & slightly “undone”.  The 8 shades featured in this post are the only shades available in Australia, but Berry Ready is another shade I recommend (available overseas) trying if magenta is not your thing.

KIT COSMETICS Lip Paint – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


KIT COSMETICS, Lips, LIPSTICK, NC20, Yishan | by — June 4, 2013

Tags: , ,

Brand: Kit Cosmetics
Range: Lip Paint
Shades: Paint It Pink, Paint It Orange, Paint It Melon
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Kit Cosmetics Lip Paint is a lip lacquer that’s super rich in pigment & very thick in consistency (thicker than OCC Lip Tar).
  • Combines in a squeeze tube packaging, and you’ll need your own lip brush to apply as it doesn’t come with one.
  • Available in 3 shades – Paint It Pink, Paint It Orange, Paint It Melon
  • Tip: When applying lip lacquers, start with a small dot on your brush & smooth out the colour on your lips.  Repeat using a small dot each time until you achieve the desired coverage / finish.
  • Verdict: Unlike OCC Lip Tars, you do need to layer it on until it becomes an opaque lacquer finish to achieve an even consistency.  Any less and it will look patchy.   Texture aside, the colours are definitely not for the faint hearted!  I recommend Paint It Orange if you like your lips to be no less than a hot neon orange, and it will give you a smoother finish than most orange lipsticks.  Paint It Pink didn’t work for me, so I didn’t swatch it – it was patchy and accentuated every little lip flaw.  I only recommend it if you have a pale lip tone & no issues with dryness.

RRP: $17.95 AUD Available in Australia at Mecca Maxima & Kit Cosmetics.
