Let’s play a little quiz. There are two red lipsticks in the picture. Which one is deep red and which one is sheer?

Another closeup shot. Both lip colours look pretty intense, don’t they?

The Burberry Lip Cover in Brick Red (S$43) shade is a deep, slightly warm shade of red matte lipstick. It is a very wearable red shade, but slightly tilted to the warmer tone. This is a good red shade that I foresee that I would be using often, in addition to my Clarins Joli Rouge in Grenadine – which is more of a cooler berry red.

Burberry Beauty also has a natural sheer lipstick known as the Lip Mist, which is less intense and glossier, but comes in the same signature checks embossing and magnetic closure as the Lip Covers.

The cosmetics range is exclusively available at TANGS Orchard.

The Clinique Almost Lipstick (S$33) looked so intense in its Luscious Honey shade but in reality, it is considered more of a hybrid of lipstick and lipbalm. It is sheer, so my lips looked only slightly deeper than its natural colour, which is a lot milder than a typical deep red lipstick.

The Almost Lipstick also feels like a tinted moisturizing lipbalm because of its sheer colour, with a creamy as well as slightly glossy finish. You could pile on as many layers as you like to achieve the colour intensity you require. This is perfect for those who is looking for a rouge for every-day wear with a tinge of colour.

The Clinique Almost Lipstick will be available in 7 shades from February 2012 onwards.

最近手上有两支艳红唇膏,一支是深红色,另一支则较透薄。Burberry的19号砖红色唇膏,是多数亚洲女性能够衬托的艳红色。Clinique的Almost Lipstick则透薄柔滑,宛如润色的护唇膏-想要艳一点的色调,可多涂一些,平日想要淡一些也没问题,可以随心所欲。相信两支不同的艳红唇膏都各有拥护者,Burberry的唇膏现已在TANGS Orchard独家售卖。Clinique的Almost Lipstick则将在2月在新加坡发售。
