Ben Nye Creme Rouge Wheel

Do you love it when products serve a dual purpose?  Actually, there are a lot of things that can serve dual purposes.  For example, mascaras can be used as liquid eyeliner and vice versa, eyeshadows can be used as a contour, lipsticks can be used as blushes.  Well, today, I’ll be talking about Ben Nye Creme Rouge Wheel, a product that can be used as both a lip and cheek product.

Lip Nourish by Luk Beautifood

Winter is here!  Eeep!  The only thing I like about winter is the fact that I get to wear my coats.  What I don’t like about winter is dry skin, especially chapped lips!


My lips are very prone to being dry and chapped all the time, even in summer and more so with the acne medication that I’m on.  With all the medication I’m pumping into my body, I prefer products that are more natural.  Lip Nourish by Luk Beautifood is one of the lip products that is free from all that bad stuff and focuses on being as natural as possible.

Klara Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lips

I’ve always had problems with bright and dark lipsticks.  You gotta remember to bring it with you because you’ve got that problem of re-applying after eating or kissing your significant other.  One thing I so want to avoid is leaving a “kiss mark” on someone.  I always have to wipe it off whoever I kiss! Oh, the scandal!! (#firstworldproblems)


Now, here’s a product that claims to be kissproof and long lasting.  Klara Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lips claims to give 24 hour long lasting matte lips, full coverage and high pigmentation.  There are 11 colours in this range.  The colour I was gifted was 09, which is a pinky red colour called “Watermelon Kiss”.  The applicator is a fuzzy tip which is fairly flexible.  It was extremely hard for me to use because the tip bends too much, so it was difficult for me to apply a straight line on the lip.  Well, thank goodness it broke off in the bottle  Yes, the applicator broke off when I was opening it.  AND IT WAS ONLY THE 4TH OR 5TH TIME I opened it!!!!! Now..I’ll have to figure out how to get the most of the product by trying to tip it out.


On another note, let’s talk about the product itself.  The pigmentation is fantastic!  It really delivers the pop of colour that it claims.  It is smooth to apply on the lips and dried very quickly to a matte finish.  You will have to fix any mistakes quickly!  Once it’s dried, it definitely is kiss proof!  There was no transfer whatsoever.  However, the long lasting colour did not last past lunch.  Majority of the lip colour was still there but some of it was completely gone.  I did try to eat as carefully as possible.  It also lost its kiss-proof ability.  There was a little bit of transfer when I dabbed my lips (or kissed someone) and the colour started smudging on my lips.  It could be the oil from the food.


Picture time!

The product is fantastic, providing great colour and long lasting lips.  Just remember to remove any oil from your lips before re-applying.  Klara Cosmetics has mentioned that there was a default in the packaging, so hopefully, your applicator does not break off!

Okay, I know there has been a lack of posts lately but for some reason my social life decided to pick itself up!  Now, since I have been absent, I thought I would do 2 Antipodean Beauties posts in the next couple of days.

This post will be about summer.  If you are in Australia, I hope you survived the really hot heat lately!  (looks like summer decided to come around too!)  Here’s my summer look..
