Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Sunny Rouge Sinner Lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/25/2015

Preliminary Review (More details to be added when I have more time on hand):

1. Pretty colour: a complex mix of red, pink, coral. A muted bright for everyday use (an oxymoronic description, I know, but that's what it is - check it out personally if you could!).
For easy reference, think of it as a super-saturated version of Lush's 'It Started With a Kiss' Lip …

Lipstick - Marc Jacobs - Le Marc Lip Creme

5.0

Sep/24/2015

Why does this line of lipsticks not have more reviews? This revamped line of lip colour offerings from MJ is phenomenal, to say the least!

I had tried the Lip Gel in Dorothy - I cannot remember the exact name and do not have it in my possession anymore but it is a warm red - it was a rather horrible formula, neither long-lasting nor does it fade evenly (it left a lipstick ring …

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Rouge Sinner Opaque Lipstick

Sep/18/2015

A short story:
When I was 17 years old, I decided to play around with my mother's makeup when she was out running errands one day. I have always known about her love for lipsticks, and saw three Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks in her makeup drawer: Sassy Mauve, Rosewine and Mauvy Night. The mauvy-pinks didn't catch my eye, but boy did Rosewine! It was a beautiful red tinged with a …

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/11/2014

Amore Pacific is the parent company of Aritaum. Aritaum is a brand that sells affordable, high quality Korean makeup. The World Glam Coating Tint is a lip gloss/lip tint hybrid. The shade which I own is 06 Seoul. The colors are named after various world cities like Shanghai, Tokyo, New York, London, and etc. There are 10 shades in total but I wish that Aritaum would expand the range to include …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Creme - Kiss Me Coral 750

5.0

KMC: Acronym for 'Kiss Me Coral'

Price: SGD $12-ish. I got it at 30% off during a sale.

Color: Wow. KMC is such a face-brightening orange-red. I'm not sure if I would call it coral because the red comes across rather strongly against my NC20 fair Asian skintone. Compared to the Revlon Lip Butter in 'Tutti Frutti', KMC is a lot more opaque, saturated …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Love That Red

5.0

Aug/11/2014

LTR: Acronym for 'Love That Red'

Price: SGD $12 - I got this on a sale at 30% off.

Color: A beautiful neutral red. LTR is neither too cool nor too warm. In fact, I think it is really interesting red because it seems to change a little with the lighting. Also, it comes across as a slightly pinky-red on me. Hmmm, intriguing. Judging from my personal experiences and …

*PITA: Acronym for 'Pink in the Afternoon'

Price: SGD $12 - I got this at 30% off during a sale.

Wow, I'm pretty sure I have found my perfect everyday lipstick! I was on the hunt for a 'Hepburn' pink and I zoomed into this lipstick. I would say that it is a touch darker than what Audrey Hepburn used on "Breakfast at Tiffany's" but the …

Polishes - REVLON - Colorstay Gel Envy Long Wear Nail Enamel - Pocket Aces

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2014

I bought this bottle of nail polish on a whim and I'm so glad that I did.

Color: A saturated mid-tone hybrid of red, pink and orange. Perfect for summer. It is such a pretty color even though it is very bright. 'Pocket Aces' comes across as a reddened pink-coral on me and complements my neutral-leaning-warm fair Asian skin tone perfectly (I'm around NC20) …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Fig

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2014

Beautiful MLBB neutral pink. Such a pretty colour that comes with a pretty price tag. However, there are quite a few cons to this lipstick:

(1) Absolutely horrible formulation. This lipstick applies smoothly and feels creamy but it dries out my lips?? Because of its creaminess, it is *extremely difficult* for it to have decent longevity on my lips. It lasts for only around 45 minutes …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Creme - Chatterbox

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2014

Chatterbox is a light pink that leans slightly blue on me. A little Barbie-esque but still pretty. I think it looks chic when I pair this lipstick with plain coral or navy blouses. What a fun colour for spring (and summer)!

However, I do have a problem with MAC lipsticks - they tend to really dry out my lips and make them peel (such as the cremesheens). With amplified crème lipsticks …
