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 “Tickled Pink Cosmo”. Read on to know 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 Tickled Pink Cosmo Creamy Lip:
City Color Tickled Pink Cosmo 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.
The shade, “Tickled Pink Cosmo” is a super bright and vibrant pink color. I always wanted such a bold pink shade in my collection. Though I have some bright pink lipsticks in my stash still, nothing is as bright and shocking as this one. I totally love this shade, and initially, I was a bit sceptical about whether it will suit me or not as it looks like a blue-based pink or barbie pink. But, on application, it looks good and flatters my skin tone. It adds the boldest and brightest pop of colour, which is perfect for summer.
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.
