Lipstick of the week

I spent last week wearing mainly neutral glossy lips, but with occasional splashes of colour, it just felt right somehow ...

 Clockwise from top left here, we have:

Clinique Catwalk Coral
Chantecaille Lip Chic in Bourbon Rose
Chantecaille Lip Chic in Tea Rose
MakeBelieve Enhance Lipgloss
Lancome Juicy Tube in Crazy Raspberry
Clinique Chubby Stick in Plumped Up Pink
Guerlain L'Extrait Rouge G in Paresse

Here's the shades again, this time with flash:

And here are the swatches:

Catwalk Coral is a lovely full-coverage coral shade, with a slightly whitened base.  It's rather difficult to wear (occasionally I feel like it's wearing me) but I love it regardless.  The two Chantecaille Lip Chics are old favourites, of which I'm going to need a back up of both soon.  The Makebelieve is a lovely gloss for wearing alone, as it contains a tiny amount of shimmer, drawing attention to the lips without feeling gritty, or making it look like you've been snacking on fairy wings.  It's been ages since I wore a Lancome Juicy Tube, and their sticky fruitiness hasn't altered in the slightest in the intervening years.  This isn't a bad thing, btw ... The Clinique Chubby Stick is a limited edition sold in aid of Breast Cancer, it's a really lovely pink shade, and very cheering.  The Guerlain L'Extrait is one of my very favourite things a richly pigmented pink that lasts for hours.

And, here's the aftermath:

What've you been wearing?

  1. Red, I've been wearing lots of reds the past few weeks. Burberry Military Red, Bobbi Brown Red Carpet, Guerlain Colere and Lancome 102. The Burberry is yet to grow on me, I can't really see what the fuss is about so far.

  2. Loving the coral shade!

    I think Autumn has been getting to me, the brights have been squirrelled away and now I'm wearing nudes and berry glosses...hmm.

  3. Lipbalm, lipbalm, and more lipbalm for the past few days... but that would be because I have the flu and damn dry and cracked lips. I have a stash of Sephora lippies that I recently got, and can't even try them on my lips are so bad. Guess next week will be full on red and bright pink to make up for it!

  4. Some gorgeous picks :)) I was the same last week, neautral pinks with some colour thrown in towards the end of the week xx

  5. Loving your blog's header. This post has some very yummy swatches I must say. Revlon stuff looks insanely good :)


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
