Today’s review will be on a creamy lip stain or liquid lipstick. I love liquid lipsticks and, I bought a few from City Color. I like how each one is named after a drink. Today, I will be reviewing the shade “Blackberry Mojito”. Let’s see how it fared for me.
Price: 4.99 USD
With true opaque color, City Color Creamy Lips is a lip paint that just won’t quit! A little goes a long way with this ultra pigmented formula – only a light touch is needed for full coverage with only one layer. Sets to a lightweight, semi-matte finish that doesn’t dry out and keeps your lips natural moisture preserved. Available in 12 sweet and sultry shades. Pro-tip: Wipe excess product off wand before applying to ensure the best application and staying power.
My Experience with City Color Blackberry Mojito Creamy Lips:
City Color Blackberry Mojito Creamy Lip stain comes in a curvy plastic tube. The tube is short, stout and looks pretty cute. The tube is color-coded so, it is very easy to pick the shade you are looking for. The wand is a doe foot applicator that is very convenient to use. The applicator picks up a good amount of the lip cream and applies the product evenly. The tube doesn’t leak and can be tossed into your handbag.
“BlackBerry Mojito” is a bold purple shade. It is such a beautiful colour. It reminds me of MAC Heroine lipstick as it is a similar purple shade. This colour is dark and vampy and, I like it a lot. However, on my lips, the color doesn’t look as dark as it is in the tube. It looks more of an orchid shade in the tube, but on application, it just looks gorgeous on the lips.
The pigmentation on this one is good, and you can build it up. I usually layer on 2 coats, which I feel is enough. The formula is very creamy and mousse-like. It is a soft mousse-y form of a lipstick and feels very comfortable on the lips and doesn’t dry out my lips. The product is thick and smooth. It makes your lips look really nice, but the formula doesn’t completely dry out. Hence, it makes the lip stain very comfortable. It still gives a semi-matte finish though.
The lip stain is very lightweight, and even if u layer on a couple of times, you don’t feel the heaviness of the stain. It does transfer though. The staying power is around 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. It does transfer a lot and gets quite messy when you are eating/drinking something. Otherwise, I really like this product.
The product has a rosy scent to it, which doesn’t bother me. It is mild and noticeable only when you sniff closely or when you are applying the product. However, it fades away quickly.
