I really wanted to try some metallic liquid lipsticks, so when I found some in Primark at £2.00 each, I couldn't resist. I picked up a gold, a sparkly burgundy and also a matte brown.
The formula of these is insanely pigmented and applies beautifully. The metallics dry super quick, so you don't have much time to play around with them. I needed two layers for a completely opaque finish. The dark brown takes much longer to dry, but I also needed two coats.
From left to right: Karla, Goddess, Queen. (before they dried, you can see them dry on the lips below)
Karla is a dark matte nude brown. It's such a nice shade. It is super pigmented and applies really nicely, but it never dries 100%, so I have to apply translucent powder on top to make it feel completely dry. It lasts pretty well (a good 5-6 hours), but it fades during eating etc.
Goddess is also a stunning shade. Deep burgundy with copper shimmer. I am in love! It is a bit drying though and crumbles after a while, but I love the colour and finish soooo much!
Last but not least., we have Queen - a proper metallic gold. I actually really like it. I might not wear it on it's own, but it looks nice applied in the centre of the lips, on top of Goddess. The formula is the same as the latter, a bit drying and slightly crumbly after a while.
Overall, I can't really complain about these. £2.00 for a liquid lipstick is just awesome, especially for such stunning shades! I don't mind reapplying it during the day.
Have you tried these?
