How To Apply Application is made easy with a feather-soft wand – simply apply colour in a single stroke.” (www.loreal-paris.co.uk)
A thin layer of the liquid lipstick blended into the lips gave me a sheer glossy look with a hint of colour, much like what I would expect from a regular lip gloss. A thicker layer gave me a more pigmented lipstick+gloss effect. The end result seemed similar to the YSL glossy stain, although without the stain. Nude ballet does not apply evenly for me as I have quite pigmented lips, it was necessary to blend the gloss into my lips and then apply a second coat to get a even application, although this tone of nude was not very flattering on my skin-tone (MAC NC30-35); to make it work as a lipstick I have been mixing the Fuchsia with the Nude in order to get a balance between the two. On the other hand, Fuschia Drama is very pigmented and I need less product to get a pigmented even finish. These liquid lipsticks feel very comfortable – not too gloopy-, hydrating, wore evenly and lasted a good 3 hours, which is fantastic for a gloss/lipstick.
Positives: The liquid lipstick did not dry out my lips at all, felt comfortable, wore evenly, lasted 3 hours (no eating/drinking), surprisingly left my lips hydrated and smells of peaches (normally don’t like scent but this is subtle)! The applicator holds just the right amount of product to get a pigmented finish – at first it did not seem enough at all, so this surprised me, a little really goes a long way. I really like these and will be trying very hard not to buy too many more… 🙂 The price is really good and they are on 3 for 2 in boots at the moment – help!
Negatives: Hmmm… Maybe the scent, as it might not be to everyones taste. Also, some shades contain shimmer and you can’t see this as the actual colour inside doesn’t show through the packaging – no clear window panel- , so you don’t see the product inside until you open it and try it out.
