- "I am not the biggest fan of liquid lipstick because I think my lips are abnormally dry, but with this formula it dries so quickly without taking the moisture out. I bought mine at Sephora during the VIB Rouge sale so for the price you can't beat it! Overall the pigmentation is great and it still feels a little creamy when it dries down so it won't give you that dry looking lip, and the color is that perfect nude that you can rock all season long" in 1716 reviews
- "Really love this product. It is a long lasting matte lip paint that will not let you down! This is my first time purchasing this product & I have nothing bad to say about it! Would definitely buy again!" in 955 reviews
The texture is thin, like the tarte Tarteist lip paints and the stila all-day liquid lipsticks (although creamier than the latter, if that makes sense), so I can apply in thin layers. I do need at least 2 full layers for full opacity. It fully dries down unless I don't remove the lip balm underneath.
I'm not sure if there's a specific name for the shape of the applicator, but it's like half the size of a doe foot with a little groove in the middle (like a "C" shape) where product accumulates (tarte's tarteist lip glosses also have this applicator). I wipe the applicator on the edge of the bottle because I think too much comes out initially, but the applicator's size makes it versatile and easy to stay within your lip lines.
I have chronically dry lips, and most liquid lipsticks are very challenging for me to wear at all, much less all day (around 10 hours). This is, hands-down, the most comfortable I have found thus far, although it IS drying and requires extensive lip prep (exfoliation & moisturizing), as well as touch ups (for me, re-moisturizing every few hours). Transfer is minimal, but increases throughout the day as I re-moisturize, which is not due to this product, obviously. Also can't wear this back-to-back days, but I can actually wear this all day if I really want to. Typically I'll only wear it a half day since it fades well on me - I don't get crackly lips or patchiness. Unlike the stila all-day liquid lipstick, Colourpop's ultramatte, and smashbox's Alway's On, this can be layered with vaseline/aquaphor, which is what works best for my dry lips.
In conclusion, I am still interested in trying out some other liquid lipstick options that I hear good things about (mostly Julep's and Dose of Color's), but I would buy this in other colors. Overall, I still prefer other kind of lip products since matte ones can be so drying and my lips already struggle so much, but this review reflects my experience in relation to other matte liquid lip products only.
I really love this formula. I cannot say that these have the most outrageous longevity but they do surprisingly hold up very well through eating/drinking etc. & are transfer proof for the most part. the sharply angled doe foot applicator on this formula makes application extremely easy to achieve. The formula does not feather, does not bleed & the pigment is very rich & one swipe
Usually does the job. I’ve never found that I have to layer these. In terms of comfortability I find that these are one of the most comfortable formulas I’ve ever worn. They are not overly drying & I often times forget I’m even wearing them. The formula feels very soft & very similar to a powder finish on the lips. I highly recommend this formula.
Oh and for some reason the wand on this became disconnected from the cap? So now I can't even really use it. Anyway, here's a picture of what it looks like on.
They have come a long way from their first tartiest lip paints!
These are very long wearing, kiss proof and pretty much transfer proof when eating or drinking.
My favorite shade of all time is tarte Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in shade festival! It is such a gorgeous dusty rose color. It is one that I always carry with me, I am lost without it. This color compliments many eye looks but I typically wear it when I have a neutral eye.
The formula can be a little drying but with proper lip prep, these babies are comfortable and long lasting.
