Lipstick of the Week – 28 August 2011

It’s that time of the week again!  A mixed bag this time around, though you might not think so when you look at the swatches.  Here’s what made my handbag this week:

Tom Ford Pure Colour – Pink Dusk 
Chanel Rouge Allure – Incognito
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine – Bel-Ami
Ilia Pure Lip Care – Arabian Knights (full review on this coming soon)
Chantecaille Lip Chic – China Rose (full review on this coming soon)
L’Oreal Studio Secrets – 460 

It’s been a bit of a themed week, I wore the Tom Ford lipsticks to the launch of the Tom Ford Full Colour Range, (well, you have to, don’t you?) and the Chanels have been in use with my stash of new Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadows.  The Ilia and Chantecaille both appeared in my collection this week, and I’ll be talking more about them soon, and the L’Oreal was a failed attempted at my perfect nude lip shade:

 You can see the L’Oreal is far too brown for a nude shade, and the Ilia is actually a nice red stain.

And one last shot for luck:

 Just for a laugh, I added up the cost of these lipsticks.  I shouldn’t have done …

The Fine Print: I bought four of these, and was sent a couple to review.  I like lipstick.  What can I say?

    Ha at adding up the cost – maybe you could do a cost per wear? Would that make it any better? These shades are great and I am definately off to investigate. Thanks for this. Jan x

    I once added up the cost of all my nail varnishes, and had to have a lie-down afterwards. Don't do it!
