CK ONE shine lipstick – 120 rave, 400 rockin – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Brand: ck one
Range: shine lipstick
Shades: 400 rockin, 120, rave
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

ck one shine lipstick: glossy.  hydrating.  vivid.

  • ck one shine lipstick combines the benefit of a lipgloss, lip balm and a lipstick into one.  It’s pigmented yet has a mild translucence with a glossy finish,
  • Very moisturising & softens parched tired lips into a smooth and firm juicy pout.
  • Available in 12 shades – I got to try rockin (plum) and rave (tea rose).
  • Verdict: Although I do like the ck one lipsticks in general for their price range, the shine lipstick range particularly impressed me, as even the trickiest of colours sit smoothly on my lips without sinking into my lip lines.  Apart from nudes, I often have trouble with tea rose & plum shades as they either emphasise lip creases / flakes or the pigment settles into lip lines.  Despite wearing lip balm underneath, there was absolutely no slippage or pigment settling into lines whatsoever.  Coverage was smooth & even with a translucent and flawless finish. Two thumbs up!

JANE IREDALE PureGloss™ – Sugar Plum, Candied Rose, Iced Mocha – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Jane Iredale
Range: PureGloss™ (New formula)
Shades: Sugar Plum, Candied Rose, Iced Mocha
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Jane Iredale has revamped its lipgloss range with their new and improved PureGloss range,  with a refreshed formula and sleek new packaging that now contains 35% more product in each tube.
  • The texture feels tacky like a lacquer with a strong grip & sculpting properties that revive my tired lips into a voluminous sculpted & smooth pout.
  • It doesn’t glide as smoothly as other glosses, but the lacquer finish is nevertheless easy thanks to the curved doe wand that fits the curve of my lips perfectly.
  • Long-lasting high shine finish.
  • Petroleum free formula, with key ingredients such as Moringa Butter, Orange Peel (hydrating), and Blackberry and Pomegranate extracts that double as anti-oxidants as well as leaving a pleasant flavour.
  • Available in 18 shades, Sugar Plum is a sweet peony pink with sparse shimmers, Candied Rose is is a shimmery rose gold, and Iced Mocha is a shimmery gold brown.
  • The shimmers – particularly in Candied Rose & Iced Mocha really glimmer under lighting and give lips added dimension creating the illusion of a full pout combined with the sculpting properties of the lacquer.
  • Verdict: The lip swatches were taken towards the end of a swatching session & my lips were feeling worse for wear & looking rather withered.   It just took a slick of  Jane Iredale’s PureGloss to revive my tired lips into a voluminous & healthy sculpted pout that felt soothed as well.  This is definitely my favourite lip product out of all the Jane Iredale lip products I have reviewed to date, and I highly recommend it for anyone that wants a product that instantly sculpts their  lips into a voluminous pout without the need for any tingly ingredients.

Shades: Sugar Plum, Candied Rose, Iced Mocha

MAYBELLINE NY Color Sensational High Shine Gloss

Brand: Maybelline
Range: NY Color Sensational High Shine Gloss
Shades: Almond Crush, Electric Shock, Plum Lustre, Iced Chocolate, Glisten Up Pink, Captivating Coral, Mirrored Mauve, One Shine Day, Gleaming Grenadine, Luminous Latte
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Give your lips a luminous look with finishes that range from molten glazes through to juicy sheens.
  • Wax free formula that glides incredibly smoothly, melting into lips coating them evenly without sinking into lines or sliding.
  • Despite being infused with Maybelline’s signature honey nectar ingredient, I find this collection features a strong scent of fruit chews (like Starbursts).
  • Available in 10 shades from petal pinks to eye popping coral.
  • Verdict: It’s not everyday that I’m impressed by a high street lip gloss range, but the smooth “lip hugging” formula has captivated me.  My favourite shades are Plum Luster (which I’m saving for Autumn), Electric Shock (cool pink that sits amazingly well even on my pigmented lips) and Iced Chocolate (creamy nude).

MAYBELLINE Baby Lips Loves Color – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Tags: , , ,

Brand: Maybelline
Range: Baby Lips Loves Color
Shades: Cherry Kiss, Berry Crush, Rose Addict, Pink Lolita
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • For the longest time, I have been wishing that Maybelline would release tinted versions of their flavoured Baby Lips.   Finally they have released 4  new tinted shades – Cherry Kiss, Berry Crush, Rose Addict and Pink Lolita.
  • They are a sheerer than I hoped for, but is perfect for those who like to keep things subtle.
  • The reason I love Baby Lips so much is because it’s a great daily lip balm that’s light in texture, gives a healthy sheen, contains SPF20 and looks great under most lipsticks – all for only $3.95 AUD.
  • The only setback is that it’s not rich enough for severely dry lips, or as an overnight treatment.
  • Verdict: I keep one in my bag, one on my “swatch station” and my blogging desk, and have a few more in my drawer as backups.  Also perfect for girls that are a few years off from being allowed to wear lippies, and want to enhance their lips without looking too grown up.
