REVIEW & SWATCHES: Ciccone Cosmetics Lipsticks


Today, I will be introducing our good ol' Aussie Brand, Ciccone Cosmetics


In celebrating 10 years in the industry,  Ciccone Cosmetic  release their high coverage, long lasting lipsticks that are inspired by femininity and womanhood, in its new fuchsia and diamante packaging "It's a Bling Thing". 


Ciccone Cosmetics lipsticks contain powerful active ingredients such as jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and calendula oil to help moisturise, condition and protect the lips from the elements while vitamin E helps soothe and repair. 


I was lucky enough to be sent 4 gorgeous Ciccone Cosmetics lipsticks from Fame PR to try out a couple of months ago. 

L-R Voluptas, Oceanus, Cupid, Hera
They are all pretty true to the actual colour except for Oceanus. It appears to be a bright orange in the photo, but it is actually coral IRL. 

VOLUPTAS

A poison apple red, which reminds me of Snow White. Definitely the colour to go for a statement lips. 

CUPID

A cool pink colour with a slight lilac undertone. This is definitely a colour for the colder days. 

OCEANUS

Peachy-coral tone which is also my absolute favourite of the lot! I have used them in my Spring Is In The Air FOTD and Lavender Smokey Eyes FOTD

HERA

A soft, cool pink colour, which I reckon is pretty similar to Cupid. 

SWATCHES:

With Flash

Without Flash

WHAT I THINK:

I am absolutely IN LOVE with these lippies, especially Oceanus! Definitely my spring/summer favourite! The formula is extremely creamy and glides on my lip like magic. Whilst the formula isn't super drying but lip scrubs and moisturising is advised prior to applying these babies. It is super pigmented too, as you can probably already tell from the swatches.

Each lippie costs $25, which is pretty reasonable in the Australian market (RRP for MAC lippie is $35 and RRP for Illamasqua lippie is $39), especially for the quality that you get. Definitely worth every penny! 

COMPARISON SWATCHES:

I have done a comparison swatches with the lipsticks from my collection, that I had in mind when I first open these pretty lipsticks. I hope it gives you guys a better idea of the colours! :)

I have included both without flash (top shot) and with flash (bottom shot) swatches. So enjoy!
