Kleancolors Lipliner Review and Swatches

Recently I came across a Kleancolor display in a local pharmacy and thought I would try out a couple of the lip liners since I was in the market for some and these were readily available.

The packaging is pretty typical of any lip liners these days. Basic black sharpen-able pencils with the colour on the base. The colour displayed at the base is pretty much true to the colour of the product. What I dislike about it is that all the pencils are not the same height some are a lot shorter than other and I personally find this very annoying.

However, for the price I cannot complain too much (especially since I had just bought 2 MAC lip liners, one of which the tip melted and broke off). It cost me JA$75 (less than (US$1) so I thought it to be a bargain despite the variations in the amount of product.

When applying the liners I found them to be quite creamy which surprised me because of how reasonably priced they were and for that I am glad. The pigmentation is remarkable from the nudes to the brighter and deeper colours, the colour pay off is amazing. They are not however as long wearing as per say a MAC or NYX liner. But the smoothness of application is very comparable to those more popular brands (some of the names and corresponding colours reminds me of the NYX slim liners).

From Top to Bottom: Brown, Chocolate, Plush Red, Hot Red, Pinky, Barbie Pink, Rose
When making the swatches the lip of the Rose broke because it was so soft.

From L-R:  Brown, Chocolate, Plush Red, Hot Red, Pinky, Barbie Pink, Rose

I would rate these lip liners a 4 out of 5. If only they had a bit of a longer wear time it would have gotten full marks no hesitation.

Lipstick Swatches from

Hi guys! As promised here are the swatches of the lipsticks I got from as mentioned in my previous blog post.

Enjoy Sweeties!!!!!

Milani Color Statement lipsticks
From L to R:  Uptown Mauve, Plumrose, Fruit Punch

Milani Lipsticks in natural lightening

 Jordana Lipsticks 
From L to R: Scarlet Red, Mystery

Comparing the Scarlet Red to some other red lipsticks also from Jordana.
From L to R: Scarlet Red, Rouge, True Red
As you can see Rouge is darker and has a more matte finish than Scarlet Red even though both are considered matte lipsticks. The True Red is a lot more sheerer and gives a wash of red to the lips hence it is good for day time wear to just brighten up any look.

NYX Round Lipsticks
From L to R: Doll, Tea Rose, Frappuccino

NYX Matte Lipsticks
From L to R: Strawberry Daiquiri, Merlot, Sierra
How gorgeous, think Strawberry Daiwuiri is my favourite out of the entire collection

NYX Matte Lipcream
         L: Antwerp        R: Sao Paulo

NYX Eyeshadows 
From L to R: Copper, Rust, Cherry
These are considered dupes to Mac's Coppering, Cranberry and Passionate
