I have yet to try the latter and really want to as they are my faaaaav formula - matte! But on a recent trip to Boots in my quest to collect more 'drugstore' makeup options for my most recent youtube vid
(I severely lack in any kind of drugstore product as I tend to be a wee bit of a makeup snob) these caught my eye.
The first one I got was 301 Rouge Soprano
as the colour fit perfectly for the look I was trying to create. I fell in love with the formula so much I scooted back two days later and nabbed 204 Tangerine Sonate
. First thing I'd say, don't bother with the nudes, they're no different to a regular lipgloss or stick of your choice. Defo go for the brights though. I love the idea of liquid lipsticks as they dry down to more of a stain and are a real no hassle, no smudge option when you're going somewhere and don't want to be haunted by the half hourly, touch up/is it on my teeth/has it smeared/have I eaten half of it scenario. The formula of these are super glossy and this doesn't fade or bleed. They are also really comfortable to wear, feel pretty moisturising for a gloss and last really well. Due to the sheerer, gloss type formula, which can be ramped up to a more intense finish by adding a lip liner underneath, I think they are a great way to dip your toe in the bold lip pool if you're not usually too comfortable doing this.
All in all a definite thumbs up from me!
