Review & Swatch of Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick

I was sent a couple of new Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick range to try. As a lipstick hoarder, I am definitely excited because I have been trying out a couple of their products in the past and so far they are to my liking!

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick comes in black sturdy luxury looking packing.

I like the clear top window on the lipstick case making my life easier by looking at the shades at a snap rather than opening one by one to pick the colour, whether it’s in a cluttered handbag or makeup drawer. 

Although this is a gel semi shine lipstick, this product promises to deliver full-coverage to your lips by having gel microsphere technology which can offer rich, stay-true colour that delivers long-lasting wear – without leaving lips looking or feeling dry. 

What so unique about this Ultrafine silica microspheres technology is that it will lock in the lipstick colour on the lips making it more long lasting. Yet it’s in lightweight gel formula that glides on smoothly and cushions lips, leaving them feeling soft and supple with ingredients such as sunflower seed oil and jojoba butter, to help condition lips while. In essence this Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick delivers long-lasting wear without drying lips.
I was given 3 different Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick shades to try

Here are how the swatches look like with just 1 swipe, the colour payoff is highly pigmented. Here I will try out one by one the colour to show how it appear on my lip.

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick in Luminous Lilac shade is a very shimmery lilac pink purplish that leaves my lips pop with luminous shine. The lightweight gel formula lipstick glides on smoothly and cushions lips, leaving my lips feeling soft and supple.

And this shade is a sweet shade to brighten up my look!

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick in Mod Pink shade although the name has the word pink but the shade is more towards coral-ish pink colour.

This is a great subtle shade for everyday look and this is the shade that will suits for all skin tone for all occasions.

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick in Scarlet Red is my favourite shade of all. Although the red shade looks darker on tube, upon application this shade reveals a beautiful bloody red shade. What I like about this lipstick is that it gives a really intense colour payoff, the full coverage finishing has a long lasting effect that don’t dry up my lips.

Red is love! Red is bold!
This is the perfect must haves lip colour to steal the limelight at the event you are attending.

And I would highly recommend you to try Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick if you are:-

  • craving for an intense, long-lasting lip color. 
  • prefer full coverage lipstick that won’t leave your lips looking or feeling dry

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick is sold at RM 55 each and for more details contact Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant today 03-77117500.

Givenchy's Le Rouge a-Porter and Givenchy Le Rouge a-Porter Review, Photos and Swatch

Recently I received 2 Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick for review. Featuring in the picture is my favourite fragrance ; Givenchy Dahlia Noir.

It's love at first sight looking at the packaging of 2 Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick!

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick encased in an elegant silver and leather tube.

With me here are these 2 beautiful shades ; 302 Hibicius Exclusif and 202  Rose Dressing and love how the lipstick itself has the Givenchy logo embossed on it!

Texture : :Creamy, non-sticky texture glides smoothly. Rich & Very pigmented colour

Scent : Light rosey scent.

Le Rouge is a rich with luxe pigments that coat the lips with radiant, lasting color with a single stroke. Below are the swatch of 302 Hibicus Exclusif shade and 202 Rose Dressing shade.

Check out how the shades look on my lips 

302 Hibicus Exclusif shade on my lips. As mentioned above, it's really creamy and the colour is really pigmented even with 1 swipe.

Applied 202 Rose Dressing on my lips. Compared to 302 Hibicus Exclusif, this shade is more coral.

My look wearing Givenchy Le Rouge 202 Rose Dressing. 

Personally I preferred 302 Hibiscus Exclusif shade as it's more reddish and make my feature looks sharper!

Two years after its creation, Le Rouge Givenchy now comes in an easy-to-wear balm: Le Rouge-à-Porter. A unique, ultra sensorial formula that leaves a luminous colour and a naturally shiny finish on the lips. A palette of shades, each more appealing than the next. And with its case which is still sheathed in real leather, it is sure to be love at first sight... A lipstick with true style, Le Rouge-à-Porter is the ultimate fashion accessory that can make all the difference. Givenchy elegance in all its glory.

However I am not able to show us that as the one I'm holding is a mini sample! The original size of Givenchy Le Rouge-à-Porter is taller and more slender, which means it contains  a longer lipstick. But while its shape may differ from the original, its luxury case remains the same: Le Rouge-à-Porter is also presented in a genuine black leather case featuring a metallic stud inspired by the House’s fashion collections.

Givenchy Le Rouge a-Porter has a unique hybrid formula that strikes the perfect balance between the colour of a lipstick and a protective and skincare effect. The unique combination of spheres of hyaluronic acid natural microcrystalline waxes associated with the OleoCare complex helps to protect the lips while leaving a subtle, shiny finish.

Love the super light, Smooth and blendable texture. Le Rouge A Porter glides over my lips smoothing leaving them moisturised, supple and soft.

From the barest nude to the most intense, from the most natural to the most sophisticated, Le Rouge-à- Porter is available in 16 rich colours. I personally felt that Givenchy Rouge a-Porter is great for work and day look while Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick is perfect for your night out or candle light dinner because of the colour intensity and you will be able to create the impact you want. 

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick  is priced at RM121 while Givenchy Le Rouge a-Porter is selling at RM 130 in Sephora Malaysia.

Review & Swatch : Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque

Ah I received this products a while ago from Bourjois Malaysia. At first I thought this product is our usual lip gloss. However it's not what I expected to be! This Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque is a HYBRID LIPSTICK which breaks all the rules and writes its own lip story.

 Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque comes with 8 pure and intense colours.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque offers colours that are pure and glowing. They are practically butter and wax-free so as to not disrupt the quality of the colour. As these “filters” have been eliminated, the colours are perfectly pure, each one fully expressing its portion of the colour spectrum. 

• The fresh nudes give you a healthy glow, 
• the elegant pinks are to die for and so flattering, 
• the vibrant oranges instantly put you in a good mood 
• and the flamboyant reds are simply sensational!

 I have 3 beautiful shade of Rouge Edition Aqua Laque to review. They are 01 Appechissant, 02 Rose on the Rocks and  07 Fuchsia Perche to try.

From the outside, the tube is transparent to reveal the colour of the laque and it comes with  high-shine fully chrome cap. I always like transparent tube because it makes me easier to make my pick. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque consists high concentration of water and Nymphea extract which has great moisturising ability (10 hours), it contains all the elements necessary to achieve a light and extremely refreshing texture. 

A close up on their applicator.

I never really like these applicator and prefer to use lip brush. However this soft, dense flock applicator which features long fibres, it makes it easy that I can easily forgo my lip brsuh.

From the swatch, I see the colour is really pigmented and surprising the texture is really light like water and non-sticky at all! 

I read that Bourjois formula for hybrid lipsticks draws its inspiration from the technology used in foundations, with its emulsion-like properties. Bourjois has refined and enhanced the formula by reducing the presence of oil as much as possible. Once applied, the lipstick doesn’t budge. It doesn’t transfer onto the little cracks in the skin that it may encounter. 

This is my original lips colour is pale pink.

To use this Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque, you are advised to use it on cleansed & dry lips without any lip balm or lip liner. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Appechissant

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Appechissant shade comes in beautiful nude coral shade. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Appechissant shade on my lips. Managed to cover my lip colour nicely with  very fine shimmer effect.  Love the wet shine look, not sticky at all! 

One of my colour of the 3 tubes :) Looks instantly bright up and this shade is easy to match with any makeup look. This colours stay nicely with drinking, but with eating the shine is gone (yeh I ate them lol) and left very light stain on my lips.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Rose on the Rocks

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Rose on the Rocks comes in nude pinkish shade. 

I had high hope on this shade because from the name rosey shade usually suits me. Unfortunately this shade is too light & I can see lines on my lips. I found out this coverage seems to be a little be more sheer compare to the other two.

From far, the shade doesn't seems bad. But not my favourite colour to put, too sheer and light for my liking but if I would want to have natural lip colour I think this is the best choice. Texture wise they are very consistent, very light and watery feeling. After eating and drinking, I barely can see there is  any colour in my lips. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Fuchsia Perche

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in Fuchsia Perche comes in very beautiful red fuschia. This is love at the first sight, I always love bright colour and this totally caught my eyes.

Love love love! Super intense, bright and glossy that will make head turns!

After trying all these three tubes, I can safely said their texture is non sticky and in fact the texture is as light as water. Amazing texture for such intensity of colour and coverage ! 

Red shade always work to brighten up my m ready to rock & roll!

As you can see, after my lunch (eating & drinking) what's left on my lips is a beautiful red stain without the shine.

Looking at how long lasting the colour stay on my lips, please don't forget to use proper eye & lip makeup remover to remove any colour residue left on your lips.
