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: Mirenesse
Range: Lip Bomb “Candy Collection”
Shades: 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Further to the lip bombs I swatched previously, Mirenesse have released have released 6 new shades as part of their Candy Collection.
  • Lip Bombs are a unique glossy lacquer stain that coat lips with amplified colour with a juicy high shine lacquer finish.
  • What I love about the unique applicator (close up pic here) is that you only need one coat for a high impact finish as the flat tip of the wand helps evenly smooth the lacquer over the lips.
  • You can also customise the colours by adding a touch of gold or white to lighten up the shades.
  • Verdict: Whilst my last set of swatches featured hot pinks and reds, this time there’s a cinammon red, coral and raspberry red and a shimmery fuschia – which in my opinion takes the cake from the Candy Collection.

Range: Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Shades: Berry Allure, Sugar Violet, Fuchsia Finery, Pink Pop, Pango Peach, Snow Pink, Super Natural, Rosy Future, Kiss Me Coral, Fatal Apple, Raising Rouge
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are Revlon’s newest addition to their lip gloss range, and come in a silky formula that boosts hydration and subtly plumps lips.
  • Available in 12 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • I’m really impressed by the pigmentation of these lipgloss, in that even the sheerest formula gives a beautiful soft veil of colour that looks great even on its own.
  • Non-tacky and feels really smooth and moisturising with a high shine.
  • Verdict: These are really great quality for their price point, and can be worn on their own as a sheer MLBB gloss.  With wedding season at its peak at this time of year in Australia, these glosses are an affordable choice for the bridal party that’s easy to squeeze in an evening bag and touch up throughout the day.

Brand: ASAP
Range: Pure Mineral Lip Colour
Shades: One, Three, Six
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • ASAP Pure Mineral Lipcolours are a cosmeceutical mineral lipstick that conditions lips with Vitamin E, avocado, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid.
  • Available in six shades - One (pink rose), Two (rose brown), Three (bright candy pink), Four (deep rose brown), Five (subtle plum), Six (vibrant deep red)
  • Feels really moisturising, injecting my dry lips with a much needed boost of hydration making them instantly fuller, smoother and softer. No lip balm required.
  • The pigmentation is impressive, that can be worn both sheer and layered on in just a few sweeps for opaque coverage.  It fades gracefully throughout the day without looking patchy, which is how I like my lipsticks to last.
  • The scent is rosy bsdfut I can still taste the waxes & oils in the lipstick.
  • Verdict: It’s hard to imagine how such a great lipstick is not yet widely known.  I highly recommmend it to anyone that loves a boost of moisture in their creamy pigmented lipstick.  Google it and you’ll easily find the online stockists.  My favourite shade is Three which is described as a candy pink, but on my flushed lip tone it’s more a posy pink that fades into a pink MLBB.

Brand: Bobbi Brown
Range: Lip Gloss
Shade: Siren Red
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

Shine and softness (with a hint of vanilla scent). We’ve infused our lip gloss formula with a soothing mix of aloe and botanical extracts including oils of avocado, jojoba and chamomile, to keep lips soft and supple. Plus the tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro.

  • Siren Red is a new shade added to the Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss range, and is a semi-translucent red that’s best accessorised over a red lipstick or lip pencil for added dimension.  It doesn’t feather or bleed into lip lines, which is a big plus particularly with shades like red.
  • What I love about Bobbi Brown glosses is how long lasting and moisturising they are, which does come part and parcel with moderate stickiness. The new tapered applicator is a welcome change from the brush applicator from the previous design, and makes it easier to apply precisely and spread the gloss evenly as a little goes a long way.
  • Verdict: Wearing red lipstick on a date can be high maintenance especially with eating and all.  A glossy red lip on the other hand makes it easy to touch up and also wipe down after meals without needing to worry about smudging on teeth or on your chin.  Siren Red will appeal to those that like the idea of an easy-to-wear red gloss that speaks quiet confidence without being over the top.
