Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks are described as “infused with mega-moisturizers to seal in color and softness. Find your lip color amongst a dazzling array of 82 fabulous, fashionable shades!” Demure is a warm-toned neutral with gold shimmer in it.
Demure is a great, wearable everyday shade. It adds subtle colour and sheen to the lips without drawing attention. It’s perfect for work, or when you want to play up your eyes, since this will complete your look without pulling the attention away. The shimmer in the lipstick is really subtle when applied on lips, making it barely noticeable, but just giving the lips a nice shine. The pigmentation is just okay, but it is easily be built up. It does pool slightly in lip lines, but it’s not obvious, since the colour is so neutral. It glides on the lips easily, and has no taste or scent. It lasted ~3 hours on my lips.
The packaging is the regular round, classic Revlon black and gold lipstick tube. I love how the top of the tube is transparent so you can actually see the lipstick! Much better than trying to guess the shade by looking at those usually-extremely-inaccurate stickers!
Bottomline: If you are looking for a drugstore lipstick that is work-safe, and don’t mind reapplying throughout the day, you might want to check Demure out! Continue reading →
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Fairytale is described as a pink to rose colour. The Lip Perfection Lipstick line is said to be “Enriched with Silk Moisturizing Complex, our formula helps sustain levels of moisture and helps create soft, smoother, beautiful lips in just 7 days.”
To me, this is more of a coral-pink, instead of a pink. It’s more coral than MAC Crosswires (Review coming soon). The packaging is sleek, with a metallic cap and a coloured end showing the shade, and I really appreciate how the colour actually matches the shade. The pigmentation is excellent, one swipe on the lips yields opaque coverage. The formula also feels great on the lips, it glides on easily, no tug-o-war with the lips is needed. The lipstick is non drying, although after 6-8 hours of wear I do feel like I could use some lip balm. It also lasts a very long time on the lips, at least 8 hours for me, which is exceptional, since most lipsticks lasts only 3-5 hours on me (including MAC ones). I had breakfast after I put on the lipstick, and after breakfast it still looks like I just put it on (and I had a big breakfast at Cora!) I don’t know what makes it cling on my lips so much, but I am very impressed. I needed to remove it with make up remover at the end of the day, since it is not coming off with just water. It does have a slight “lipstick” scent and taste to it, but it is not so strong that it repels me, but if you are very sensitive to scents and tastes in lipsticks, you might not like this one.

Another haul post… this is what happens when I go to the mall two days in a row. Well I do have an explanation this time, London drugs (a drugstore that’s only in certain provinces in Canada) has a couple for $10 off any $25 purchase of makeup… how can I pass on that? Continue reading →
Yes… another Lush haul. It seems like Lush just manages to suck me into the store every time I walk past it. I’m always just like… “I wil just take a quick look”, and yet I always walk out with something! Continue reading →
I have always wanted to try the Beauty Blender, but cannot justify the price tag… and then I saw a video by a youtube guru named gossmakeupartist. He’s probably my favourite youtuber in terms of make up because he’s so honest and sincere, and has some fantastic tips! I have learnt so so much from him. Anyways back to beauty blender. Wayne mentioned in one video that there are a lot of “fake” beauty blender out there that does exactly the same thing as THE beauty blender, and cost a fraction of the price. Continue reading →
Now that I got my new camera, I have been taking pictures of my make up for the whole morning, since I can finally show the colours/shades more accurately than from the iPhone camera… so, expect a number of review/swatches posts coming up!
I bought MAC’s Star Violet shadow near the end of 2011, but I haven’t really dipped into it until recently. While I am rather adventurous with lip colours, I am pretty conservative with eyeshadow. I do love colour shadows, since they are so pretty, but I just can never convince myself to put them on my lids. Continue reading →
I got my first Julep box for 1 cent a while back, and I received the box sometime in April! I have not been able to review it since I did not see it until recently, when I got home. So as promised, here’s a quite look at my first Julep Introductory Box!
After doing the style profile when I signed up, the “style” I got was Classic with a Twist, so I just got the box in that style. I did not know at the time that I can change to another style if I want! But it’s okay, I didn’t dislike the colour in this set anyways. Continue reading →
