Brand: Clinique
Range: Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Jumbo (New packaging)
Shade: Goodness Grapecious
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Clinique have re-packaged their Vitamin C Lip Smoothies into a shorter jumbo sized applicator.
  • Vitamin C Lip Smoothies deliver a Vitamin C and antioxidant rich cocktail that moisturises and smoothes lips to look their best.
  • A little goes a long way & it applies really rich and luscious (texture is similar to but thicker than Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour)
  • Available in 12 shades, Goodness Grapecious is described as a soft dusty purple but it looks more like rhubarb to me.  The coverage is sheer and has fine shimmers.
  • Tip: When using it for the first time, twist several times to get the product out.  Subsequent application requires only 3-4 twists.  Start from the centre of the lips and use the brush to smooth outwards.
  • Verdict: If you like the idea of a daily dose of Vitamin C to your lips, you’ll also love how luscious this lip gloss feels on lips.  It makes them feel like soft lush cushions & is long lasting as well.  Goodness Grapecious is a great MLBB shade for pigmented lips or dark skin tones.

Bobbi believes that lipstick should be quick and easy – and Sheer Lip Color is exactly that.

  • Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color is a super lightweight lipstick that glides on smoothly and evenly, leaving a sheer glossy tint.
  • Rejuvenates and nourishes lips with a smooth buttery finish is thanks to Shea Butter, Murumuru Butter and Apricot Kernel oils
  • The coverage is semi-translucent and quite pigmented, giving your lips a wash of colour yet looking natural at the same time.
  • Available 14 shades ranging from neutral, bright to deep shades.
  • Carolina looks like a warm burnt red in the tube, but on my lips it becomes a warm rhubarb colour that’s a great natural shade for warm skin tones or an autumn look.
  • Long lasting and feather resistant.
  • Verdict: Unlike other sheer lipsticks out there that leave only a veil of colour, Bobbi Brown’s take on the sheer lipstick hasn’t compromised on pigment nor longevity, and the texture of this lipstick actually feels a creamy lipstick minus the weight.  It blends seamless into every crevice of your lips, making it almost believable that your lips naturally came in that colour.  Guaranteed to please those that like an easy-to-wear everyday colour.  Two thumbs up!

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.

Brand: Rimmel 芮谜
Range: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick
Shades: 3, 16, 19, 20, 22, 26
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Following the success of Kate Moss’s debut lipstick collection, 6 new shades of Lasting Finish Lipstick have been added to the range that’s lighter and fresher than the original collection.
  • The long-lasting creamy colour is infused with light-reflecting black diamond, adding depth and intensity to the pigmented finish.
  • Kate says, “Whilst I’ll always have my favourite timeless shades, I love to update my lipstick to reflect the new season’s style. I wanted to play with fresh and daring colour to create a look that’s fun and feminine but with an edge.”
  • In contrast to the debut shade range, the new collection features 4 neutral shades out of the 6.  I’m particularly pleased to see the addition of #20 and #22 to the shade range, as fuchsia and classic red were noticeably missing from the last collection.
  • The grip in the creamy texture hugs lips & lines very snugly, so be sure to wear over a smoothing and moisturising lip balm for best results.
  • The chic, matte black packaging with Kate’s signature & embossed Rimmel logo is one of the best packaged drugstore lipsticks I’ve seen to date.
  • Verdict:  Fuchsia and red were among the shades that swatched the smoothest, but the nudes (in particular #03 and #26) needed extra time to smooth out streaks. That said, the pigment and coverage is impressive for its price point & I also love the fact that you don’t need any lip liner for a flawless finish.
