A few Darling Girl swatches! Kiss You Off: Color Rich Lip Blams

Howdy, y’all! I’ve had a super busy weekend, so it’ll be a couple of days until the next instalment of my Labyrinth mini series is up. A certain brave little fellow is coming up next!

Today I just want to share with you the lippies from my latest Darling Girl haul. DG do my favourite indie lippies by far. The Holo Glosses are always adorable and the formula on the KYO:CRLBs (!) is awesome – really lightweight and comfortable to wear and still packing a pigmented punch.



DG Sanctuary

As soon as I saw the name, I had to have it! Sanctuary is described as a “ a rich blackened berry red with just a touch of shimmer.” Pretty perfect description! I really, really love this colour – berry shades are great on everyone and I actually find them a much easier dramatic lip to wear day-to-day than red.

Oh My Darling

Oh My Darling… clementines…oranges… geddit? No? Bollocks to you then. Never one to resist an orange lip, I’m very surprised I’d not snagged this for my collection sooner! OMD is described online as a “gorgeous bright ripe peachy orange with some fine coppery peach shimmer.” I think it leans more yellowy on me than the swatch picture online, but I really like it! Normally an orange with even the merest hint of yellow touches my lips, I hate it but I’ve been wearing this a lot.

Tan Lines

I was really excited to try this as I’d not had a nude lippy from DG. Susan, you are a legend. I love this colour! The website says “Tan Lines is a gorgeous sun kissed tan with peach undertones and lustre” and I think that’s bang on. I love a nude to have a little peach to it or I fear looking dead – this is a great nude-y nude that doesn’t give me the dreaded jizzlip! Big fan.


Have you tried Darling Girls lippies? What are your favourite indie lip products?


  1. Ah, these are gorgeous... Thanks for the swatches!

  2. I agree with Wendi, sanctuary looks amazing on you! Susan does make some really great lippies :)

  3. Tan Lines looks really pretty! Sanctuary suits you so well.

  4. I love Sanctuary and Oh my darling. Sanctuary realy looks great on you, it works best with your skintone and hair imo. So far I only tried planet X from darling girl, and I need a fullsize of that!
