A Week in Lipstick - 04 September 2011

It's been a pale pink week this week for some reason (well, the reason being that I've been wearing very dark eyeshadow, I suppose).  This week's entrants to the hall of fame are:

Chantecaille Lip Chic - China Rose
Chantecaille Lip Chic - Tea Rose
Avon - Baby Lips
No7 Poppy King Lipstick - Glamour
Clarins Joli Rouge - Pink Blossom
Vapour Organics Elixir Plumping Gloss - Bitten
Tarina Tarantino - Cameo

Remarkably similar this bunch, if you take the Chantecaille Tea Rose and Vapour gloss out of the equation.  Very different textures, all of them, though.  I think the Chantecaille Lip Chics might currently be my favourite lipstick texture of all, soft and moisturising, and, whilst sheer, they're pigmented enough for a really polished look.  There will be a full review of both of these and the Vapour gloss soon though.

Here are the swatches:

Yup.  Very similar.  What can I say?  I get into a groove with shades sometimes ...

Oh, and a little sneaky preview for you of what I have coming up this week:

Why yes, that IS a wall of Tom Ford.  How did you guess?  It's incomplete though, I have discovered that True Coral is so disgusted with my total inability to wear it that it's gone walkabout.  Pfeh.

The Fine Print - This week a selection of purchases, PR samples and gifts.  Fear my overdraft fees this month!  Fear them! But then, who needs food anyway?

  1. I think I actually just wept at the Tom Ford wall. Should you ever find that pesky True Coral and fancy a little blog sale to cover those overdraft fees *nudge wink*

  2. I'm so sad they've discontinued Pure Pink :(

  3. I really enjoy your 'Week in Lipstick' posts. You have some really pretty shades. x

  4. Lip chic is my favorite formula :) Tea rose is my HG for a really polished look and it's so no fuss. I'll have to look into china rose. Don't have that one yet!

  5. a lovely week of lipsticks there. Super jel of your epic Tom Ford wall x

  6. What a lovely selection of lippies. I came over all strange at the sight of the Tom Ford wall. Lush! x


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
