How to use:
Ensure lips are prepped, removing all dead skin for a smooth application. Then, apply evenly to your top lip, then to your bottom. Lastly, part your lips, and gently blot with tissue removing any excess.
The applicator itself is just a normal straight wand applicator with slightly curved on top. The point is curved so you can create a sharp line with this.
Color/ Pigmentation/ Texture:
I got in the shade Velvet slippers, which is a deep dusty plum/purple shade which looks a bit dark on my skin tone. The color is really pigmented and they are really smooth on my lips with a liquid consistency and dries down to a completely matte finish.
The consistency is not too thick, so it is very easy to apply. They dry down pretty fast so, we need to be quick in applying the lipstick. The lipstick doesn’t go patchy, however, the formula is too dry for my lips when it dries down and it creates like super weird wrinkles on my lips.
Another thing I noticed is, the texture can be a bit sticky and to remove the product can be hard sometimes. Also, I don’t feel myself feels comfortable when I wear this because I always keep checking my lips in front of mirror whenever I wear this.
If you are wearing these and not eating or drinking for long periods of time, lasting power is pretty good with these. However, for the inner part of the lips, these don’t stay well due to saliva, so you can clearly see that inner part is not cover. If you are eating, especially anything that is oily, these will fade around the inner part of the lips as well. Once these have set on the lips, they won’t move or transfer at all and the finish is super dry matte. If you apply more layer, it will feel kind of heavy and patchy so, one or two coat is enough.
These do have like a gummy scent to them but not overpowering. Your nose will not detect once you applied it. So, the fragrance not strong at all.
– Long lasting and not transfer
– Great pigmentation
– Liquid texture

– Can be tricky to remove the lipstick
– Sometimes a bit sticky
– Not comfortable on my lips
– Not suitable for chapped lips
I’m having love and hate about this product. I do like the pigmentation and the color and the lasting power but the formula is too dry for my lips, plus I feels very uncomfortable. I can still find matte liquid lipstick out there which a lot better than this with cheaper price too. Maybe this lipstick not work for me, but might work for you.
