Brand: Hourglass
Range: Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick
Shade: Ballet
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Decadence in a bullet: creamy yet silky, richly pigmented yet lightweight the formula is feels moisturising, luxurious and leaves lips with a subtle shine.
  • Contains a blend of skin-smoothing, moisture-enhancing and reparative ingredients such as Vitamin E.
  • It’s hard to see from the photos, but the packaging feels luxuriously heavy with a firm twist required to close & open the lipstick
  • Water-resistant and long lasting. Paraben free and phthalate free.
  • Available in 12 shades, Ballet is described as a “fun feminine pink shade” that looks like baby pink on my lips.
  • Verdict: As I mentioned in yesterday’s review of Nocturnal, these lipsticks are a must have for the lippie lover.  The high grip creamy texture means this lasts comfortably and moisturised for hours & stays looking polished at the same time. I’m so impressed with Ballet, as light blue pink tones rarely sit well on my flushed lip tone.  Ballet hugs my lips beautifully without any streaks, even without lip balm or a lip brush.  HOLY GRAIL.

Swatched over a thin layer of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm.

RRP: £ 22.00

SHU UEMURA Rouge Unlimited Lipstick – PK343

Brand: Shu Uemura
Range: Rouge Unlimited Lipstick
Shade: PK343
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • PK343 is a cool toned blue-pink available as part of the Spring 2011 Morphorium Collection.
  • Sheer & semi pigmented lipstick that blends into lips but lets your natural lip tone show through.
  • Semi moisturising & glides smoothly, but doesn’t disguise chapped lips 
  • Verdict: I love sheer lipsticks any time of year, but especially so during Spring/Summer as it’s more comfortable to wear and complements lighter makeup in the warmer months.  If you prefer more coverage, you could always line your lips first in a pink/flesh toned lip liner.
  • Tip: Sheer pink lipsticks are also useful as an ‘accent colour’ when layering lip colours.

This product was sent for consideration.

CLARINS Rouge Prodige Lipstick – Miami Pink #103

Brand: Clarins
Range: Rouge Prodige Lipstick
Shade: Miami Pink #103
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Click here to read yesterday’s rave review on this must-try lipstick range!
  • Miami Pink is a vibrant peony pink, commonly seen on Korean celebrities, and is similar to Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in “Make Me Pink”.
  • Recommend testing at the counters, since my skin vs. lip swatch gave such different results!
  • A lip brush is all you need to ensure the high coverage pigment is applied evenly to blend with your lip tone.
  • Available in 24 shades, of which Stef will be swatching some too!
The artificial lighting makes it look like a milky pink, but in real life it’s a slightly brighter version of my skin swatch (if that makes sense?).
