After a LOOONG wait! Here comes the post on my stash of lip colors!!! Some of my favorites are listed tooo!! Man! Can’t wait to share with you!!!
Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint! ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ – #02 Cherry Pink
What I like: Natural and pinkish shade on my lips!
What I don’t like: If i have to say one, its probably gonna be the color is too light?
How it look: As you can see, the color is pretty sweet! Sweet pink! It’s quite runny (that’ how a lip tint suppose to be!) and sheer!
See how natural it blends and doesn’t looks drama! It feels like applying water on your lips, color water perhaps? Hahaha! I actually did a post on this lip tint before because it performed better than expected!
Next up is my first ever RED lip color!! Seriously RED!!
Shiseido Lacquer Rouge ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿
Type: Lacquer Rouge
What I like: Super sexy! I like how the red has that bit of gold shimmer that enhance the whole lip color.
What I don’t like: I don’t know.. perhaps the color is too opaque I have to be careful every min..??
How it look: SEXY!!!! hahahah!! I’m not touching details on this as you can read it from my previous post here
But I’m more than glad to show you how the color looks like on my lips!! 😉
Definitely a great color to use for party and prom!
Bobbi Brown ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿
Type: Lip gloss
What I like: Nude shade and it has shimmer!
What i don’t like: It gives my allergy!!!!
How it looks: This is a nude color and it’s glossy nude with a little shimmer. It looks much darker (browner) in the bottle. When applied, the color lightens.
Ok, here comes my favourite!! *excited*
M.A.C Lipstick ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿
What I like: I thought I will never understand why people will go crazy for M.A.C until my first application of this lip color! It’s smooth! It’s lasting! It’s simply worth every cents it cost! All it takes is just one stroke and you will fall in love with this precious darling and (yes!) it’s one of my favorite now!
This is a limited edition color – neutral beige of Naked Proof Cremesheen Lipstick – one of the lipstick from Illustrated by Rebecca Moses Collection (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)
What I don’t like: NOTHING!
How it look: Looks really natural yet not boring! The nude is slightly brown-peachy tone and it can cover the darkened area on my lips (due to chapping) without looking too gross! Girls who doesn’t like glossy look or pink shade probably will love this (at least I do..)! Though it’s not glossy, it is not matte finish either.. That’s another reason why I love it!!
On days when I’m on my casual style, this is definitely my must-wear!!
M.A.C Tinted Lipglass ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿
Type: Lip gloss
What I like: Smooth application and color is really cheery!!
A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinted Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It’s pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.
This is another limited edition color – Drawn To Chic from Illustrated by Rebecca Moses Collection (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)! Ehem!! Also another favorite of mine!!!
What I don’t like: It feels a lil sticky when applied but after a while, you’ll get used to it.
How it look: Obviously this is not nude!! It looks so HOT PINK in the tube but was lighter when applying on lips! This color brightens you up (kinda makes u look fairer, IMO), makes you look bold yet feminine!
If you are a glossy girl,. you will love how this lipglass shines on your lips!
Not that I wanna repeat this but it’s like I finally understand why M.A.C is so well-loved by girls of all age!! Like OPI, you will never understand why people love it so much until you try it once!! …..and get hooked on it. T_T
Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lipgloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ LR107 Veil Rose
Type: Lip gloss
What I like: Color is light and sweet. It is scented lip gloss and shimmers~!!
What I don’t like: Not as lasting as I thought..
How it look: It’s pretty sheer (more low profile) as compared to M.A.C’s color but they have this light fragrance that M.A.C doesn’t have. That explain why it was one of my favorite nude color before I receive my Christmas gift (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)!! 😉
If you want highly pigmented color, this is definitely not for you! However, if what you want is just a little shine on your lips then get this!
Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lipgloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ LR09 Cherry Pink
Type: Lip gloss
What I like: This is slightly more pigmented as compared to the previous color. SLIGHTLY only! LOL…
How it look: Pinkier lips as compared to Veil Rose and I think it looks sweet too! I prefer this color over Veil Rose because the color is more visible! I mean, that’s is why you put on a lipstick/lipcolor right?? Else a lip balm or lip gloss will just do the trick (this doesn’t include nude color)!
VDL Tintbar Triple Shot ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿
Type: Tint Bar
What I like: I totally love the idea of this triple shot tintbar!! It can create a gradient lip color in juz one lipstick!! Yesh, now there’s no need for me to bring around so many lip color to create those gradient lip look! And you don’t need special technique to put this color on!!! They are not only look amazing on your lips, they are very moisturizing too!! They feel like lip balm on your lips and it’s not sticky too!!!
What I don’t like: Not many color options
How it look: I’m gonna show you the first color I put in my shopping basket…. Btw, the price I got them during the sale was 1 for S$2X (can’t remember) and 2 for S$40! So of cuz, woman’s instinct (!!!), grab TWO!! I think the original price was $28 for one. Correct me if I’m wrong… Ok, back to the color that I wanna show u!
601 Triple Peach
This is more to an orange tone lip color. Natural yet not boring (because of the gradient effect!!)
Totally in love with it!! If you’re a light color person, I think you should keep one of this in your stash! It’s gonna enhance your lips sooo much!!
And the next color is ….
502 Triple Bergundy
Before I apply I thought I’m gonna have some brown dracula-like lips! Because the dark color look so brownish!!! However the sales person promised that it’s actually a pink tone then i tried it on my hand… True enough… It’s pink!!!
As compare to the Triple Peach, this color is more playful and feminine! The gradient is more visible too!
Side track a bit! I think another name for gradient lips is called ombre/bitten lips, some even call it Korean lips! Just google and you can see a list of tutorial teaching you how to create gradient lips! But now, with VDL’s Tintbar Triple Shots, all I need to do is apply this lipstick per normal! The only “technique” I need to know is how to hold the lipstick right so that you get the darker colors on your inner lips! Not too tough right?? LOLX!!
I’m so happy I found this!! I believe very soon other brands will come out with something similar (or even better)! Here’s one more pic to show you the difference in color between them, on my hand..
Update on 28 Jun 2014: Can’t resist this awesome concept, I bought a new COLOR on Qoo10!!! Yeahhh~!!
501 Triple Red
I thought it will be dramatic red.. But fortunately they’re pretty sheer hence won’t be too shocking to put them on..
They actually looks pretty natural right? It’s slightly lighter than Triple Burgundy yet color still visible and sweet.. 🙂
Well, no lips are not suitable for colors, you just have to take good care of them! How I do it? Easy!!
- Drink more water – it will make your lips supple.
- Do your weekly lip scrub – to exfoliate dead skin.
- Apply lip balm before sleep – it’s the BEST time to heal chapped lips. With a good lip balm, you can see improvement overnight!
- Don’t peel your chapped lips – you will make it worst!
- Do not use your tongue (saliva) to lick your lips just because your feel they are dry – your are making it even drier by doing that!!
Keep to this 5 points and very soon, your lips will look sexy and healthy!
