- Keep Crying For You – Carmine Pink
- What I Believe – Neutral Baby Pink
- Keep Flying For You – Soft Orange
I adore these. They’re cream based, which is slightly more forgiving than some liquid formulations. They’re all intensely pigmented and opaque. Of course, given that they are long stay and matte, they are a little drying on the lips.
For maximum wear, they do need to be applied on dry, oil and liner free lips. Doing this they have lasted upwards of 8 hours on my lips. However, if you’re going to eat anything oily you might need to reapply them. These don’t tend to come off on glasses or cups and unlike others, they don’t bleed.
If you’re unsure about being able to get a straight edge with the doe foot applicator you can use a lip brush for a perfect shape.
I’ve said above that I adore these, so it’s no surprise I’m going to give them five out of five. They’re cheap, they excellent quality and they work! How could I not!
