A Week in Lipstick – 04 September 2011

By Get Lippie

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?
