This post is mostly for a friend of mine who is on a hunt for a perfect red lipstick! She is not really into makeup so I won’t tell her that sometimes it takes years to find your perfect red! Oh, wait, did I just tell her?!
She is looking for an affordable, matte and bright lipstick as she told me. So I thought of Rimmel’s Colour Show Off lipsticks which I love a lot.
There are 12 colours in the line and 2 of them are red. I had only Kiss Me so I got myself the Red Fever, too. (Now at least I can say that I got it to help a friend, not because I just wanted to get it 😉 )
I already wrote a review about this lipstick as I got a Pink Gossip quite a long time ago. So you can read my thoughts here.
So here are the swatches. Do you see how intense the colours look, these lipsticks are gorgeous! Red
I already made a review about my other Lip Tint by BECCA called Frappe which is a juicy coral. And today I want to tell you about theirt lip tint called Caipirinha.
It looks like a medium brown in the tube but the colour is very natural on the lips (see the swatch below). You can read a detailed review about BECCA’s lip tint here.
But let me say it one more time – this gloss is one of the best out there! It’s light, yet moisturizing, it has a nice little brush and the colour is buildable.
And this is how it looks like on the lips.
As we are talking about lipsticks today I will show you the one I’ve been loving a lot lately! And it’s a matte lipstick by Revlon. I have to say that these days I am all about matte makeup. Besides lip products, I love matte eye shadows and slightly 60’s inspired look.
So here is what they say about the lipstick “Revlon Matte Lipstick gives suede-like application and maximum colour with on trend shades, that glide effortlessly across lips depositing rich, beautiful, matte colour.”
This is how the lipstick looks like and it has this interesting design where you can see the colour without opening it, very handy if you have a lot of similar lipsticks.
The shade I’ve got is called Pink Pout and I got it for £7.29 at Boots. And this is how it looks like swatched on the skin
My impression and lip swatches
Every time I am wearing Guerlain’s KissKiss gloss I get a lot of compliments. All shades are very pretty but my absolute favourite is #800 Crystal Pearl which is described as shimmering iridescent pearl.
The design is beautiful and the shade looks amazing even in the tube, so imagine how gorgeous it looks on the lips!
This gloss has a convenient small brush which is easy to use. KissKiss makes your lips look shiny and sparkly. The product stays on for quite a long time and it feels great on the lips. Please keep in mind that it has quite a strong scent but I personally don’t mind.
You should get this gloss if you like:
It’s not a secret that I love BECCA. Unfortunately, I don’t see that many reviews about this brand. I have quite a few products from this Australian brand and will be reviewing them for you.
I got my first BECCA product because of Lisa Eldridge (she is my guru and I trust all her advice). I loved it so much that I had to buy more, and more, and even more. And guess what? There are still several products that will be mine!
And today I am going to tell you about their Glossy Lip Tint. Mine is called Frappe.
“Glossy Lip Tint from BECCA is a long lasting translucent gloss that delivers radiant shine with a splash of colour. Use over lipsticks, lip crèmes and lip liners for added colour and shine. Frappe is a fresh and vibrant melon shade.
Deliciously scented with a hint of strawberry parfait, BECCA Glossy Lip Tint in Frappe is a luxurious formulation that delivers a silky-smooth, completely non-sticky tint with long-lasting shine. With an easy to use wand style applicator this conditioning lip tint is the most comfortable gloss you will ever wear.”
