Paul & Joe Lip Gloss in Lustre: Review and Lip Swatch

I’ve realized that I don’t post  that many information and reviews about Asian and Australian brands.  I will try to pay more attention to them and also to get more things for myself in the future.  And we will start today with Paul and Joe.  Although I came across a lot of reviews on the blogs that I read I’ve never been a fan of the brand for some reasons.

Sabrina has the best reviews about this brand on her blog The Beauty Look Book. She already has photos of summer collection so if you are a fan of  Paul & Joe – don’t miss it.

When I saw that Zuneta has a discount on these beautiful glosses I understood that it’s time to get some for myself. They were  only £ 8.18 instead of £ 14.30 so I had to get them. At first I wanted to get all of them but eventually got only one “just to try”

Look how beautiful they are

“When you spread this lip gloss onto your lips, you won’t notice a heaviness , as with other glosses. This plumping, thickening gloss glides on your lips with perfect smoothness. Once it’s on, it adheres firmly and adds an extra dimension that lasts and lasts.

001 Byzantine: A cool, sexy shade of brown and gold

002 Bullion: Bright yellow and gold with a luxurious shimmer

003 Lustre: Charming shades of pink and gold that project twinkling lights.”

So what is my opinion about the gloss?

Probably I am thinking stereotypes   but for me all (well almost all) makeup that is made in Japan = good quality.  But if to talk about this gloss

Illamasqua Lipstick in Over: Review and Lip Swatch

More Illamasqua reviews! This time it is lipstick! I am sure that now you all know that coral is the hottest colours this season. I already made a lip swatch of one of my favourite coral lipsticks and you can check it out here. That shade is a coral with orange tones and if you are looking for coral with pink tones – Illamasqua’s Over is a perfect shade for you to get!

So what is written about the liptick at the website?

Let your lips speak volumes. Indulge in colour-intense lipstick with a highly pigmented formula, available in a choice of flawless finishes, from matt to glossy. Illamasqua Lipstick glides on smoothly, for the perfect all-night pout.

Over is a bright coral pink with matt finish

I am sorry for the fingerprints

And this is how the lipstick looks like on the light skin
