Luscious Lip Love!

I wanted to share my current favourite lip products. Here we have a Lip Balm, Lip Shine, Lip Gloss and a Lipstick. Something for everyone! So here are some photos, including swatches, with a little explanation as to why I'm loving my selections.

The Body Shop Born Lippy Passionberry Lip Balm

I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to buy something I used in my school years. The first thing that came to mind was The Body Shop Lip Balm. My all girls college banned makeup, but my friends and I used to wear this everyday, I'm pretty sure in Strawberry (it was red). This stuff is just as good as I remember! Gorgeous fragrance and unbeatable formula. This is my ideal consistency for a lip balm. Slightly sticky, good amount of colour and completely wearable. I'm loving this long time.

Dermalogica Clean Start Smart Mouth Lip Shine

I won this as part of a Clean Start pack from Dermalogica a few months ago. I love the squeezy tube and the cocoa seed butter fragrance of this product is intense. My lips feel soft and moisturised after application and this really provides a great shine to my lips. This is also fabulous to use over a matte lipstick.

Bloom Lip Gloss in Melon

I love the subtle melony sheen this imparts on my lips. I also love the price I got it for. SCORE! Rummaging around the Reduced section of Myer is SO much fun. This is such a flattering shade and I just love the gorgeous Bloom packaging. How can I not smile?

Australis Moisture Intense Lipstick in Mystery

I was after a few nude type lipsticks and I scored big time at Big W as the Australis lipsticks were half price ($4.88 each from memory). After trying  them all out on my hand, I decided on Mystery (sheer light brown crème) and Sugar Plum (sheer beige plum shimmer, according to Australis). Mystery is just what I was after! I hadn't actually tried Australis lipsticks before, but I'm immediately converted! The formula is so creamy and luscious, and the shade is perfect. I will definitely be purchasing more Australis lipsticks in the future!

What lip products are you loving at the moment?


  1. I used to always have a tub of TBS Born Lippy in my school uniform pocket. Memories in a tub! (:

  2. I have to tell you it took me a little while to work out what you'd put the sample of Bloom on. It doesn't look like your hand I'm afraid. I'm thinking "what the?" Thanks for giving me a thrill of sorts before I scrolled down and saw what was definitely a hand. Might scoot down to my Big W and see if they've got some Australia marked down too.

  3. Michelle - OMG, snap! I carried mine around in my uniform pocket too :)
    Sandy - LOLOLOLOL!! What? I am frantically looking at my hand swatches and seeing if it looks like genitals! You've got me freaked out. I can't see anything! This is like one of those optical illusions. hahaha :oD
