Morning! It’s a cool, rainy morning over here and I’m already feeling excited because it’s almost the weekend. Can you smell it approaching already? 🙂
I’m in a cheery mood today and here’s my lipstick pick for this Thursday morning.
Name: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in shade 02 Red Door Red
Colour: A dark red
Texture, scent and finish: Goes on smoothly like a lip balm, highly moistursing and pigmented, smells yummy because it contains Shea Butter.
Lasting Power: I love this lipstick because it stays on your lips for a long time without drying it out! It’s not completely transferproof, but it stays on your lips for at least the next 4-5 hours 🙂 It works for me and that has to count for something because I drink lots of water at work each day!
Has anyone tried lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden? I’d love to hear what are some of your favourites 🙂
Hola, here’s my lip colour for the week! Introducing the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon!
Colour: A coral shade, similar to fruit punch and does indeed bear resemblance to watermelon juice, like its namesake.
Texture: Smooth, like a tinted lip balm. Goes on a bit sheer, and is moisturising. I apply two layers.
Scent: A peppermint scent that fades off quickly once you apply it.
Packaging: Cardboard tube with floral prints. Pretty!
Wear time: As this is a sheer lipstick, you would need to reapply after meals and after you drink from a mug. Doesn’t affect me too much because I tend to drink water through a straw now during the day.
Where: Purchased from Sephora, at SGD $26.
Pros: I like the fresh colour and balm-like sheer texture. It makes for easy wearing on casual days!
– It has a peppermint scent, but the scent goes away once you apply it.
– It is not long-lasting, because of its sheer texture.
Verdict: I enjoy using this lipstick because I love the fresh colour and the light texture. It is not long-wearing, but I still like it nonetheless!
Note: All items are purchased by me, unless stated otherwise.
Introducing Tarte’s LipSurgence, in the shade named Escape.
Colour: A rose-pink shimmer, subtle and sheer tint. This can be layered to build colour. Texture: Glides on smoothly, has hydrating oils to nourish lips. It feels like you’re wearing coloured lip balm. But it can feel a little oily if you apply more than one layer. Scent: A peppermint scent. Packaging: A twist stick lip tint. You twist the bottom part. Wear time: The colour wouldn’t last for a long time, especially if you drink from your mug. But the hydrating oils still remained on my lips after I drank some water. Where: Purchase it at Sephora Repurchase?: I don’t recall the price, but this is quite a pricey lip tint to me. This wouldn’t be a priority repurchase for me.
Note: All items are paid for by myself. No items in my blog are sponsored, unless stated otherwise.
I finally got down to using my Revlon lipstick, it’s code name and number is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon. What a cute name. I like this subtle and fresh shade of pink. I quite like the idea of a natural looking nude or pink lip. This is close to my natural lip colour, so I call it MLBB! It means ‘My lips, but better’. This lipstick has a creme texture and is moisturising. I am not a fan of lipgloss because they feel quite sticky to me, so this is a good creme texture lipstick that I would use!
Name: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon
Colour shade: A light pink, it is fresh and subtle. Good for those with fair skin.
Price: I bought this some time back, under a buy 1 get 1 free deal. Pretty sweet deal. But a usual retail price, this should cost around $17 or $18 SGD, if I remember correctly. I bought mine from Watsons.
Repurchase?: YES. Definitely. It’s an affordable lipstick which you can get from any drugstore or departmental store that carries Revlon.
