Some of you may already know this, but one of my favorite liquid lipstick companies out there right now is one by the name of Coloured Raine. I love their Matte Lip Paints so much that I’m always recommending them to friends, family, and random strangers who will bother to listen! Granted, that last one usually happens when someone compliments me on the color that I’m wearing. I want everyone to try it! I want everyone to win!!! 🙂
The two matte colors that I currently own are Cherry Blossom and Roulette:
Cherry Blossom is the blue-based red that I’ve been trying to find for years! It’s absolutely gorgeous, and if reds that are blue-based look good on you, I’d strongly suggest that you try this one out. It also applies easily, and I did not have any problems with streakiness in the color.
And while Cherry Blossom is one of my faves, it’s Roulette and its purple undertones that get all of the attention! People seem to really like this color, as I get compliments on it every time that I wear it. In fact, I keep a backup of this one, just so I won’t be without it when one runs out! 😀 The first time that I bought it, it was actually a little streaky. I would prefer to only wear one layer of the lipstick, but with that one, I would always have to wear two in order to cover up the streakiness. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad, but I’m a little funny about my lipstick. It just wasn’t covering to my liking. The second tube, however, was perfect. No streaks, and the color applied like butter.
As with other matte liquid lipsticks, neither of these lip colors budged, as long as nothing with even the tiniest bit of oil touched the lips. I learned quickly that eating while wearing these colors probably wasn’t the best of ideas. Drinking posed no issues, though. No lip color left on glasses or bottles, which was a plus. Removal of the color was pretty easy, as long as I used an oil-based remover, or actual oil (olive, coconut, argan, maracuja, they all worked). Another way to remove them would be with makeup remover wipes, but just remember that all makeup remover wipes are not created equally. The best one that I’ve found so far with regard to removing matte liquid lipstick would be either the Neutrogena makeup removal wipes, or the Walmart version of the Neutrogena wipes (the Equate brand is almost an exact dupe – save money!).
Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints run for $17.00, and can be found on colouredraine.com, on rickysnyc.com, and in Ricky’s NYC stores as well.
