Let me just open by saying that I love these matte liquid lipsticks!! They were trending on Instagram like crazy and everyone was raving about them. being the lipstick lover that I am, I could not help but order three:”Bloodline”, “Carina” and “Retro Coral”. In this review I will cover the “Bloodline” and will get to the other two in the next couple of days.
The color payoff of this lipstick is wonderful–what you see in the tube is what you get on your lips with just one swipe. In contrast to the other liquid lipsticks I tried, this one dries into a matte finish almost immediately and lasts very long with minimal transfer. I ate and drank and only needed to reapply it once, after 8 hours of wear. However, if you are planning on French kissing then beware that it will transfer. It is slightly drying and very very staining. I recommend removing it with my universal go-to makeup remover: olive oil. It removes all stains!!!
The color of the “Bloodline” is a bright red with beautiful warm undertones. This lipstick color will match many, many skin tones, no matter how dark or pale you are.
Best Matching lipliner: MAC “Redd” or Laura Mercier “Warm Poppy”.
