As you all know I’m finally hopping on the liquid lipstick bandwagon.
My latest find is this La Femme Lip Stain, I purchased from Camera Ready Cosmetics. I’ve been a fan of La Femme’s super pigment blushes for a while but I just recently found out they made liquid lipstick so I just had to order one in my favorite shade, a blue based purple, to give it a try.
The La Femme Lip Stains are $9.50 for 5gm (0.18 oz) of product which is less expensive but with about the same amount of product as most other popular brands. The formula feels like a thin whipped mousse. I really like the consistency of the products it’s not so watery that it makes a mess but it’s not to thick that it’s hard to apply evenly on your lips. It dried down in about 1-2 minutes on my lips and wore for a good 8 hours with some fading in the center from eating and drinking. I didn’t find it to be particularly drying or uncomfortable on my lips but it is a matte lip stain so it wasn’t moisturizing either.
I’m not sure why these liquid lipsticks aren’t getting more hype in the beauty world because “Vamp Purple” is really great.
Now I’ve got my eye on “Blood”, “Choco Loco”, “Magenta Muse” and “Tomato” as well. I see another CRC order in my very near future. lol.
My lip swatch looks a little streaky but I think that’s more my fault for using my camera’s viewfinder instead of a mirror.
