Brand: Cargo
Range: Essential Lip Colour
Shades: Dubai, Napa, Paris
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Cargo cosmetics has finally reached Australia at Kit Cosmetics, and I’m pleased to report that their first ever lipstick collection is worth checking out.
  • It’s highly saturated with colour, with a high grip formula with lip moisturising plumping benefits.  So much so that I decided I would swatch them without any lip brush to show you how snug and pigmented it looks on lips.
  • Available in 12 shades with key ingredients such as olive oil, jojoba and shea butter and Maxi Lip (lip plumping ingredient).
  • Verdict: My favourite of the 3 shades definitely has to be Dubai for its amazing nude coverage without looking washed out or streaky.  The snug high grip formula gets two thumbs up from me, as it means the colour is feather-proof and makes my lips look more dimensional whilst keeping them moist. Highly recommend it!!

Brand: Revlon
Range: Super Lustrous Shine Lipsticks
Shades: 801 Pink Cloud, 805 Kissable, 810 Pink Sizzle, 815 Fuchsia Shock, 820 Pink Cognito, 825 Lovers Coral, 830 Rich Girl Red, 835 Berry Couture, 840 Honey Beige, 845 Terra Copper, 850 Plum Velour
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustruous Shine Lipsticks are the newest additions to the Revlon lipstick range, and come in a lightweight sheer formula with a silky finish that leaves lips with a moisturised sheen.
  • Available in 11 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • Most shades are quite natural looking with a MLBB shade for most skin tones.  For a more vibrant pop of colour, there’s Fuchsia Shock, Berry Couture, Plum Velour and Rich Girl Red that leans toward coral more than red.
  • Verdict: This lipstick range will appeal to those who love a natural lip with a sheer but noticeable wash of colour.  The moisturising silky texture revives lips leaving it with a healthy sheen, and I especially love how easy it is to apply without needing to be overly precise.

Brand: Natio
Range: Smoothie Lip Colour Crayons
Shade: Peony, Plum, Lollipop, Petal, Poppy
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Natio’s new Smoothie Lip Colour Crayons deliver a quick slick of sheer popsicle tinted colours, in a smooth moisturising formula that contains jojoba seed oil and shea butter.
  • Available in range of 8 shades: Peony (cool pink), Tea Rose (warm pink), Hazel (warm nude), Holly (scarlet), Plum (warm plum), Lollipop (candy pink), Petal (rose pink), Poppy (Warm red).
  • Lips are left feeling moisturised with a sheen, and the punchier colours (eg. Lollipop) do leaves lips with a stain afterwards.
  • In terms of packaging, the lids don’t stay on as securely as I’d like them to be, however I do like they are wind-up crayons so it doesn’t require any sharpening.
  • Verdict: Lollipop is my favourite as it’s more of a sheer pink fuchsia and brightens up my complexion.  Peony surprisingly turned out to be a pale pink despite the packaging looking like a MLBB shade.  Plum is a sheer take on the berry/wine lip trend, and Petal & Poppy will appeal to those that like a natural lip.  Natio is known for their range of wearable shades, and their Smoothie Lip Colour Crayon are a great choice if you like a sheer wearable colour that only takes seconds to slick on.
