Your guide to having luscious lips

ELES Cosmetics Australia Mineral Makeup Quote lipstick enchant the world with logo

“To instantly make a connection, charm him with your eyes.
To make a lasting connection, charm him with your lips.”

And although the latter could mean conversing well and saying the most interesting of things, we’d like to add that on romantic evenings, your words are muted and all a guy sees are your luscious and kissable lips.

Here’s how you could make your lips smooth and pretty, always…

  • Lip Scrub. The winter season could dry up your lips’ moisture so the first thing you should do is to get rid of the dry skin. Wet your lips with a gentle oil that’s good as a makeup remover, massage for a minute and when you see the skin soften, gently scrub with a soft makeup sponge in one direction.
  • Uneven lip colour? Not a problem! Look for a serum that has redefining qualities, one that has the power to brighten lips and define lip contour. We found this wonderful elixir with retinol called Youthful Lip Concentrate by Pevonia. Try it!
  • Plump it up. Get rid of the wrinkles surrounding your lips and iron those fine lines out with with the Pevonia Youthful Lip Cream and emerge with young, naturally plump lips.
  • Use quality lipstick. Invest in good quality lipstick in a bold shade you love and have more time to socialise, rather than retouching your pout so often you’re missing a huge chunk of party fun. Our Micro Bubble Lipsticks are superstars!
  • Pick lip products with long-wearing formula. Gone are the days when matte is the star. Who says gloss can’t go a long way? Try our New ELES Colour Balm in vivid earth colours.
  • Prime. Using a lip primer helps achieve a bold, even lip colour. Not only does it hydrate and protect your lips, a lip primer also helps keep your lipstick smooth and even for a longer time. Try the ELES Pro Lip Primer that makeup artists love.

Your Lip Shape Personality Guide + Our Recommendations

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour balm lipstick lip shape personalityApparently, it’s not just our eyes that say something about our personality. Our lips have something to tell too and Miami-based Makeup Artist Marissa Nemes names the different lip shape personalities she knows of. Here’s the list and recommendations from ELES:

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour lipstick full lips scarlett johansson angelina jolie megan fox
Full and Curvy – Confident, Agressive, Seductive

Having full lips means you do not need too much attention on your lips after all. To not take all the focus to your lips, lessen or skip the lip liner and stick to subtle pink or plain lip gloss like CELEBRATE. But if you want to look really, really sexy for a date, by all means, go full red in CLASSIQUE.

You are independent and would love to take charge. Any colour suits you and to match your personality, ELES recommends SIREN.

Thin lips are naturally sweet and neutral, pinky beige would be a perfect match. We recommend SOPHISTICATE.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour lipstick round lips amanda seyfried drew barrymore selena gomezRound – Adventurous, Rebellious, Flirty

Keep it glossy and charming with a bright shade like PARTY.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour lipstick wide lips Julia Roberts Anne HathawayWide – Successful, Talented, Perfectionist

It’s all or nothing for this lip shape. It’s either you go full lippie or just plain nude. Use a lip liner to define your lips, applying jus inside your natural lip line. For daytime look, use a light shade like NUDE and go CLASSIQUE in the evening.

Free Gift: Automatic Lip Liner with every lip product

Hi love, TGIF! ♥

Time flies by so fast. We just celebrated New Years and now we’re getting all perked up for another special day. Love is in the air this February and it’s raining hearts everywhere!
Do you think your man is up to something?


Which of these do you do to let your man know what you want for V-day?

  1. You share a photo of something you want with the caption: “Love this! I want!”
    Share this blog post on Facebook and he’ll know in an instant that you want these lovely lippies (*wink*) with an ELES Automatic Lip-liner for free.
  2. You pretend to have fallen asleep and left the laptop on. The page pulled up on your browser says, “Kiss me quick! Free gift.”
  3. You save your favorite pages with the items you want on your ipad homescreen.
  4. You leave a flier/brochure on your bedside table, on your dresser, or you pin them on the wall under the label “to buy.”
  5. Or do you just tell him straight because you know he’s not good with hints anyway?

Bloggers love ELES

We know we’re not alone in saying we’re quite partial to an afternoon with a hot cup of tea and a browser full of blogs. We can while away a good number of hours without noticing the clock tick once.
As it happens, there are a few bloggers out there who seem to love ELES as much as we love them so we wanted to give them a bit of a shout-out!

First of the bat is the gorgeous Nikki from Styling You has been coveting Offspring’s Nina Proudman character and featured our Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Melon in one of her outfit posts. We love the outfit just as much as we love the lippy! Check it out in full here.

Beauty Swatch has featured our Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Bronze, our Super Balm in Zesty and our Liptox in Starlet on her amazing lip product swatch library. This genius site is a must-bookmark for anyone who loves their lippy. Check out the posts here, here and here.

Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage, one of our favorite fashion blogs, recently told Yen magazine about her favourite beauty buys and our Retexture Creme Primer got a mention!

Beauty in the Sky recently featured our Winter Look, ‘Metallic Temptress’. Check out her post about ELES here. She’s swatched the whole collection so you can get a better sense of the shades.

That’s just a sampling of the bloggers who have featured ELES products recently. We love seeing how people make our makeup their own and incorporate it into their personal style. Nothing is more flattering or exciting!
