Brand: Nars
Range: Pure Matte Lipstick
Shade: La Paz (limited edition), Peloponnese
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Nars Fall 2013 Colour Collection features two shades in the Pure Matte Lipstick range, La Paz (limited edition lustrous purple) and Peloponnese (lustrous caramel) for a rich sultry statement.
  • The Pure Matte Lipstick formula is ultra matte with a high grip formula adheres to your lips like a glove with great lasting power.
  • Whilst it’s not drying while you wear it, I find that my lips need to be exfoliated soon after.
  • Link love: Also check out our earlier swatches of Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio and Bangkok
  • Verdict: Pelopennese took several layers to build up coverage against my flushed lip tone, but once it’s done you get a beautiful autumn caramel hue that will appeal to those that like a sepia finish to their look.   La Paz will appeal to those that like to go darker with their lip colour during fall, and purple pops really well against warm/dark skin tones. Instead of a wine or berry lip, why not try a purple lip this fall!

Brand: The Body Shop
Range:  Color Crush Lipsticks
Shades: 101 (Red Siren), 105 (Coral Cutie), 205 (Passionate Pink), 210 (Sweetheart Pink), 215 (Innocent Pink), 240 (Damson in Distress), 330 (Spice Things Up)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Body Shop Color Crush Lipsticks (which are replacing the Colourglide range) are 100% cruelty free and 100% vegetarian, formulated with nurturing cherry seed oil and Community Fair Trade marula oil.
  • Packed with pigment & moisture yet light in weight, they’re not only creamy and apply smoothly but the pigments also stain the lips. Also has a subtle rose scent
  • Available in 23 shades.  I swatched only 5 out of 7 shades as the last 2 pink shades on the right were too pale for my lip tone.
  • Verdict: Highly pigmented lipsticks often come with a “high grip” formula, but The Body Shop Color Crush Lipsticks are incredibly lightweight and a dream to apply, softening lips with moisture. I’m loving the colours and formula of this range more so than similar comparisons such as Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color, as they’re vibrant without looking took punchy and make my lips look smooth and moisturised. Give it a go if you’re in the mood for colour!

LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC20, SUNDAY RILEY, Yishan | by — May 28, 2013

Brand: Sunday Riley
Range: Creme Gloss Sheer Impact Lip Gloss
Shade: Blackberry Crush (Shimmer)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Sunday Riley products are highly sought after for their cutting edge formulas, breathable application, rich colour and high performance.
  • Creme Gloss Sheer Impact Lip Gloss certainly doesn’t disappoint – it’s super conditioning with Sunflower Seed Oil and Vitamin C to boost collagen, and is non-tacky with a long wearing high shine.
  • Available in 9 shades in a range of finishes from semi-translucent to shimmery to intense pops of vibrant colour.  From reading other reviews it seems the shade range is generally sheer tints of colour.
  • The scent is subtle but hard to describe – a cross between the standard scent of a gloss and what I imagine must be the seed oils.
  • The sheer purple in Blackberry Crush gives lips a cool tone finish that can be worn alone for a fresh youthful finish or layered on top of lipstick to give it a cool twist.
  • I like how the shimmers are just enough to give a high shine finish without going overboard into a sparkle finish.
  • Paraben free.
  • Verdict:  The first thing you notice when applying the gloss is how amazingly soft and smooth it makes your lips feels & gives them a pillowy high gloss finish.   Give it a try if you like your gloss to double as a lip moisturiser with a sheer glossy veil of colour.

Brand: Australis
Range: Go Long Longwear Lipsticks
Shades: Boho, Diva, Preppy, Easy Chic, Trendy, Ghetto, Uber Cool
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Go Long Longwear Lipsticks are a collection of semi matte, intense pigment, long wear lipsticks that promise up to 10 hours of wear
  • Enriched with anti-oxidants to nourish, repair and leave lips looking healthy.  Contains Vitamin E, white tea leaf extract, rosehip oil and mango butter.
  • Available in 8 shades: Boho, Glam, Diva, Preppy, Easy Chic, Trendy, Ghetto and Uber Cool.  The only shade I didn’t get to try was Glam.
  • They apply with a really great grip even with lip balm on, and provide even & densely pigmented coverage.
  • Lasts for hours and doesn’t dry out lips provided you apply it over moisturised lips.
  • Verdict: Despite the shades looking ordinarily similar in the tube, they come alive once on lips, especially Diva & Uber Cool which make my lips pop.  Diva is my favourite shade of them all, as it starts off as a poppy red when worn sheer and comes alive into a vibrant red when layered on.  Ghetto is my next favourite, great for warm skin tones and wintery palettes.
