SPOTLIGHT: Favourite January 2020 LOTD's...

Time for another round of lip products that rang my bell a little bit louder last month. Just when I think I've found my ultimate favourite shade, I'm reminded that it's pointless because I adore so many, plus I reckon colour preference is very much related to mood, and that changes hourly for me. I've even tried choosing my top pink or red or purple of all time, but that's also a waste of brain cells as there'll always be another I've forgotten about...and another...and another. So let's just say here are my top 12 from last month lol ...





1. Revlon Super Lustrous - Mink. Sadly discontinued - a pity as this is such a pretty one. Still smells good and keep my lips lush and moist, so I'll hang onto it for another season ...
2. Maybelline Colorsensational Rebel Bloom - Rose Rush. This vibrant orange beauty has appeared many times and I'm still bamboozled as to the name. But who cares hey, and anyway MNY is saying it's going to be phased out. The story of my lip life sob ...
3. Colour by TBN - Teak-Alicious. Such a pretty deep nude,  with benefits - it's actually verging on a bricky red, but either way, I'm loving it and will continue to love it into Autumn when it will be even more perfect, particularly gorgeous with navy and olive. I'm literally hanging out till my local Price Attack store restocks this range so I can try some of the other shades ...



4. Nutrimetics Hydra Brilliance - Coral Silk. Still making regular appearances in my fave LOTD's for colour and comfort, I'll probably retire this after March, but only to the "save for Spring" box - it's just a wee bit too pale to make it through the seasonal wardrobe changeover ...
5. Maybelline Smoked Roses - Blushed Rose. My latest passion, and lovingly reviewed just a few weeks ago HERE. There are seven in the set, and I've bought one more (Dusk Rose) to add to my three, and that will UNDOUBTEDLY appear in the Feb LOTD collage - so in love with this range ...
6. Australis Colour Inject Moisturising Mineral Lipstick - Bolero.  Picked this up in one of the "everything $3" sales they had last year. Of course, now they only have the GRLBOSS range which I've yet to try. To be honest, when I'm in front of the stand I go into overload because there's just too many to look at, plus they all seem to be such similar shades. Oh well, I'll be wearing this tomato-ey red stunner for a few years yet - the mineral formula is a sure bet to keep my lips from drying out ...



7. Covergirl - Succulent Cherry. This one's good enough to eat hey? I just searched for this on my blog and found it first appeared in (wait for it) December 2015! Yes hard to believe this is still viable, but it is I can assure you, and kudos to Covergirl's manufacturing technique & formula that it has lasted for over 4 years. Still sweet and moisture-rich with shea butter to keep my pucker well greased - it's the lippie that keeps on keeping on ...
8. DB Cosmetics Moisturising Lipstick - Red Hot Red. Another blast from the past. New range, new packaging, but no red as hot and sassy as this one so I'll hang onto it for now. Great value lipsticks ($11.99) that are certified vegan and cruelty-free, super moist and wear very well ...
9. Maybelline Smoked Roses - Steamy Rose. I think I've already expressed my deep and profound sentiments for this luscious baby ...



10. Ulta3 - Lilac Glow. Another one with a confusing name, but it's certainly a straight-talking yummy pink. In general, I find Ulta3 lippies pretty awesome value - some are sheerer than others, but choose the right formulation for your needs and you'll be happy as a clam ...
11. Maybelline Smoked Roses - Frozen Rose.  Absolutely adore this greigey purple-pink, and who would have thought it would be so flattering. To me, it's the colour of a genuine (well, genetically modified) blue rose, not one that's been dyed. So beautiful...sigh ...
12. Sash Cosmetics Luminous Lipstick - Gypsy Child. The company disappeared around Christmas 2018, but the lipsticks are still fab. I search every few months in the hope they'll come back ...

Which ones do you like? Would they suit your skin tone?

Take care of you,

    1. Such a great formula - so sad when a good Aussie brand gets hit by the sagging economy ♥
