Category: A matte lip liquid is quite akin to a lipstick, with the difference lying in its texture and mode of application. So, compared to your regular bullet lipstick, it comes in a tube-like container with a cap on top, which can be screwed open. A wand is attached to the cap, with an applicator on the other end, which can be used to extract and apply the lip product on the lips.
Ingredients: Isohexadecane, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Dimethicone, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire Dabeille, Glyceryl Behenate/ Eicosadioate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Talc, Propylene Carbonate, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Silica, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Benzoate, Parfum/Fragrance, Aqua/Water/Eau, Benzyl Alcohol, Linalool, Geraniol, Limonene, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491/Iron Oxides, CI 77499/Iron Oxides, CI 77492/Iron Oxides, CI 15850/Red 6
Price: ₹ 745
Quantity: 7 ml
Shelf life: 3 year from the date of manufacturing
How to use it: Unscrew the cap on top of the lipstick to reveal the wand and applicator. Apply the liquid lipstick on your lips and dip the wand in the tube again, to extract more product. Make sure to close the cap tightly after every use.
Packaging: The matte lip liquid comes in a cylindrical tube with a cap on top. The applicator is in the shape of a doe foot, which offers precise and easy application. The body of the tube is very similar to the shade of the lipstick, making it easier to identify in a collection of lipsticks. Most of the information about the lipstick is printed on this tube.
My opinion about the product: What’s really amazing about this lip color is its texture. It is extremely soft and creamy, though not too thick. Due to this, it glides very effortlessly on the lips and settles into a beautiful matte finish within seconds. Depending on the state of your lips, the product may, at times, feel a bit drying. The best way to avoid that is to exfoliate the lips beforehand and apply a lip balm to smoothen the lips. Most liquid lipsticks are best applied this way.
The shade is a pretty rose pink which will suit most Indian skin tones. It is a very wearable colour that will easily go with numerous outfit colours. The shade is very pigmented, which is why there is a good chance that you will not need more than two swipes to get the desired result. In fact, even a single swipe gives a very opaque finish. Even with food and meals in between, the colour is most likely going to last for a good 6 to 7 hours.
What I like about this product…
- Non-drying gentle formula
- Opaque and pigmented finish
- Ergonomic application
- Universal shade
- Settles into a matte finish in no time
- Good staying power
- Lightweight formula
- Does not highlight dry patches
What I do not like about this product…
- Can feel a bit pricey
