Gettin’ lippy with Prestige.

Good evening everyone! Any Aussie visitors watching “My Kitchen Rules”? I don’t know if this TV show exists overseas, but it’s a reality show in which teams of people (pairs) compete to see who has the best cooking skills. In the past I haven’t found it very interesting but I’m hooked on this season, due to the personalities of the contestants! LOL! (In a nutshell, some are quite nasty to each other and then the nasty people’s cooking usually turns out to be bad!) If interested here’s a clip from the show… featuring the contestants from my home town LOL! (I got a bit worried after seeing these contestants because when I say “yeah” my voice sounds just like that of “Princess”!! Maybe we just have similar accents, coming from the same town. ;-))

The wedding on Sunday was lovely. I will blog about it later this week! 🙂


I’m not a huge lipstick wearer. When I’m going out somewhere special or for a special occasion, I’ll wear it, but usually I am a lip gloss/lip balm girl! However, I’ve started wearing lipstick more often since I’ve discovered the following products from Prestige Cosmetics. I love Prestige’s Skin Loving Minerals loose mineral powder (which I haven’t reviewed yet, but I guess I should! It’s great! :)) and I received both of these products as promotional gifts when buying the powder on two different occasions. So here are my thoughts…

Prestige Lightshine Sheer Gloss Liner in Calla (GL-01)

yup this one's got a bit of wear... have been using it ~6 months! :-0

Price and Where can I get it? I got it as a bonus product at Priceline… but I can’t see it being in stock on Prestige‘s Aussie website ( 😦 So I can’t tell you what the exact RRP is. However their other lip pencils are retailing for $12.50 AUD.

This lip pencil is excellent. 🙂 Long wearing, long lasting (stays on for a full work day, as long as you reapply your lipstick as needed), and does not dry my lips out. It also has a nice fragrance… which kind of reminds me of vanilla but not quite. It’s interesting that it is called a “sheer” liner as the colour is quite strong on the lips, at least in my opinion!

Swatches of the liner + what it looks like on are to follow, as I swatched alongside the lipstick!

Beautiful rating: quality 5/5, value 5/5….so good but why is it no longer in stock?! *cries*


Prestige Classic Lipstick in Sophia (PL-20A)

Price: $4.95 AUD

Where can I get it? Priceline, selected Kmarts, and some chemists.

I love the colour of this lipstick, and Prestige has released 27 (yup, 27!!) different colours in this range. On their website they claim that the lipstick is “moisture enriched” and “long wearing”… I’d agree with the first point but unfortunately not the second. When wearing this one I have to reapply it repeatedly throughout the day or evening.

Having said that, as the lippie is inexpensive getting through it quickly is less of a big deal to me.The lipstick also has that nice vanilla-like-but-not-quite-vanilla fragrance (I just smelt the lipstick again haha 🙂 maybe it also has a hint of caramel?).

Packaging is good. Sturdy cylindrical design, no problems with scratching or breaking of the case or in being able to twist the lipstick up or down.

Beautiful rating: quality 3/5, value 4/5 (as it doesn’t do what it promises but it is quite cheap!)

Swatches!!!! (See captions under each photo which point out if you are looking at liner, lipstick or both! 🙂 The lipstick is actually the one that appears in my picture on the ABOUT : AUTHOR tab of the blog!)

top: liner, bottom: lipstick *no flash*

as per above with flash on

just liner

liner + lipstick

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post! 🙂 Bye bye for now!

How has everyone’s week been so far? Any Prestige Cosmetics fans out there? 🙂
