Any trip I take, I can’t seem to pass up a cosmetics store stop and Europe was no exception this past May. It also didn’t hurt that I had never been inside of (or heard of) @douglas_cosmetics and they were having a 25% off all lip product sale! It was obvious I was in vacation mode because I picked up the @yslbeauty Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain ($37 for .2 ounces at @sephora – https://shopstyle.it/l/5jCq).
What it claims:
🔘 Gives lips matte tattoo-like color that is lightweight and non-drying, making it ultra-comfortable to wear
🔘 High-pigment color dries instantly, stays fresh, and moves with your lips for up to eight hours of wear
🔘 Exclusive liner-like applicator allows for precision outlining and filling in—creating perfectly defined lips every time
🔘 I purchased shade 7 Nu Interdit and it’s described as a medium nude.
👍🏻 I really enjoy the scent – it’s like a fruity perfume. However, it is strong. Thankfully, it doesn’t linger, so if you have an issue with fragrance, you just have to get through the initial application.
👍🏻 It’s more pink than I expected, but still a beautiful shade that’s very flattering on the lips.
👍🏻 The applicator is pure genius. If you have issues applying liquid lipstick, this will solve all of your problems.
👍🏻👎🏻 I first applied it at 8am. After eating breakfast, I see a little bit of wear in the middle of my bottom lip, but it’s barely obvious because the shade is similar to my lip color.
👍🏻👎🏻 It is not transfer-proof, but it doesn’t come right out and claim that it is either.
👍🏻 Their claims of being lightweight and non-drying are 100% true. It is insanely comfortable and my lips don’t at all feel dry.
👎🏻 After eating lunch, I noticed a substantial amount of wear in the middle of my lips.
👍🏻 It layered effortlessly and looked just as good as the first coat did.
This is a very good lip product that I’m happy to have in my collection! If you are OK with having to occasionally reapply because the upsides are worth it, I would say you’d be really happy with this, too.
If you wear them, what’s your go-to matte liquid lipstick?
