Brand: Revlon
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.

Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

  • 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.
  • Coverage is semi-translucent and quite pigmented, giving your lips a wash of colour yet looking natural at the same time.
  • Katherine describes “Carolina” as a medium brick with a hint of rose. The shade is a creamy semi-glossy finish with no shimmers.

Brand: Lipstick Queen
Range: Endless Summer Lipstick
Shades: Perfect Wave & Stoked
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Lipstick Queen’s Endless Summer Lipsticks come in sheer pops of surf-inspired shades that add a burst of colour to brighten your look for summer.
  • Packed with punchy pigment yet sheer in colour, they’re incredibly moisturising, leaving lips soft, glossy and feeling nourished thanks to natural oils, Vitamin E and Candelilla Wax for a smooth non-sticky texture.
  • I’m especially loving the vivid orange casing, a refreshing change from the signature Lipstick Queen packaging.
  • Available in 3 shades – Hang Ten (sheer nude), Perfect Wave (sheer pink), Stoked (sheer coral)
  • Verdict: After taking these out for a test drive on the weekend, I have decided that Perfect Wave is going to be “the summer lippie” for me this year.  It looks so fresh when paired with my typical weekend makeup of slick of eyeliner, mascara and a pop of blush.  I love that you don’t need a lip balm beforehand as it’s moisturising enough on its own leaving lips with a healthy moist sheen.  However as it doesn’t contain any SPF, I do recommend layering on a lightweight SPF lip balm such as Maybelline Baby Lips SPF 20 or Blistex 5 Way Lip Protection SPF 30 when wearing this lippie out in the sun. Two thumbs up!!

Brand: Chanel
Range: Rouge Coco Shine
Shade: Secret 85
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Chanel Rouge Coco Shine’s are renowned for their comfortable, translucent moisturising formula that’s available in both sheer and more recently pigmented shades that are packed with 30% more pigment.
  • The secret to the gentle moisturising formula is Chanel’s Hydratendre complex that softens and plumps lips for a healthier fuller appearance.
  • More sophisticated than a lip tint or sheer lipstick, Rouge Coco Shines stay on well considering it’s a sheer lipstick, gently dressing the lips with a veil of colour that has minimal slip.
  • Secret is from the sheer range and is a peachy beige that gives a translucent milky nude finish on my lips, an effect I often get with beige tones.
  • Verdict: I recommend Secret for pale lip tones, as it’s not so forgiving on pigmented lips especially if you also have lip lines like I do.  That said, no one really looks up close to my lips except for all you readers of Beauty Swatch.  At arms length, the overall nude effect is really alluring as it looks like a soft plush nude veil that glistens in light.

I photographed this the same day as the Rouge Allure Moiré lipsticks I posted earlier this week, which goes to show you can hide a multitude of lip flaws with the right shade of lipstick and formula.

Brand: Chanel
Range: Rouge Allure Moiré
Shade: Indécise 125
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Rouge Allure Moiré is Chanel’s newest addition to their signature lipstick range, featuring a refined mother-of-pearl effect for a sophisticated luminous lustre on lips.
  • Available in 6 permanent shades – Farouche, Ambigue, Indécise, Suprenante, Etonnante, Énigmatique, and 2 limited edition shades – Impulsive and Audacieuse.
  • Indécise is a sheer pearl nude that’s simply exquisite.  It somehow manages to deliver an ultra-nude effect thanks to the way the pearl finish glimmers in light, and yet it has a translucence that blends seamlessly with your own lip tone without it looking like a “mask” on your lips, nor a single streak in sight.
  • Rouge Allure’s are one of my all time favourite lipstick formulas as they’re plush and comfortable, apply smoothly both with and without lip balm,  don’t slip around and once the creaminess sets it becomes a soft satin finish.
  • Verdict: Indécise is the ultimate sophisticated pearl nude.  The pearl finish is so stunning that I can’t stop tilting my head in all sorts of angles in awe of how amazing it looks on my lips in all angles of lighting.

The packaging is the same as the signature Rouge Allure range, where you open/close it with a single click so that it stays in place in your bag.

The pearl finish is the most subtle when you look straight ahead, possibly due to my lip shape.
For me it really comes to life once you look sideways, or tilt your head at that “selfie” angle.
