Shade Tested: Queen Bee, Lady Balls (pictured)
Prep: As with all matte lipsticks, it’s best to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to application.
Application: The sponge applicator on this lipstick is definitely a winner. I can get a fantastically defined line — although I do use a lip brush around the edges just to prevent feathering. The color goes on opaque in one swipe, and dries very quickly.
Wear: Here’s another fabulous liquid lipstick that doesn’t dry out the lips! When you wear a lipstick for 10 hours straight, it’s really, really nice to not feel like your lips are going to crumble off your face at the end of the day. It dries completely and wears for 10+ hours, only needing very minor touch-ups after eating. It also layers like a dream!
Removal: Regular makeup remover will take this off, no problem!
This is easily my second favorite liquid lipstick. Kat Von D is still queen, but Too Faced is definitely comparable. Also, Lady Balls never fails to gain me some stellar compliments. It’s the perfect red.
