Today, I’ll be reviewing an orange liquid lipstick. Every brand is coming up with their own version of liquid lipsticks these days. Even Coloressence has launched a few of them. I bought three shades- Berry pink, Siren Red and this one. Let’s see how it fares!
My Experience with Coloressence Candy Orange Intense Long Wear Liquid Lip Color:
Packaging: It comes in an outer cardboard covering. The back of it displays a lot of information. The actual liquid lipstick comes in a very innovative packaging. It’s a rectangular shape with the edges rounded. It reminds me of Marc Jacobs Nail Paints! I like how it looks. The screw cap is matte black in color and has the name ‘Coloressence’ written in shiny black. The back of the packaging also has some information, but the shade name isn’t present anywhere on the actual packaging. The wand of it is very delicate and a bit flimsy. It has a long doe foot applicator. Over all, I like the exterior packaging. It’s very sleek and classy. I’m not a fan of it’s wand though.
Color/Pigmentation: ‘Candy Orange’ is a very bright, in-your-face kind of orange shade. It’s a very bold, yellow based orange shade that not everyone can wear. It is intensely pigmented and any mistakes while applying it will show immediately after it dries. You can see my swatches for that matter! 😛 I’m sorry for such horrible application! I like the shade and the name of this liquid lipstick. But I’d rather reserve this for special occasions because it’s not an everyday shade.
Texture: The texture of this liquid lipstick is good. It settles to a matte finish within about a minute or so. It applies a little bit unevenly with that wand so you might have to use a brush for it. I also made a mistake of pursing my lips which made the whole thing worse. It is a little bit drying after it becomes matte.
Staying Power: It fades unevenly with meals. Otherwise, it has a good staying power of 5 hours or so.
Smell: The smell really irritates me. I don’t like the smell of it. It smells bitter and chemical-like. It lingers until you remove it. It is very mild, but I can’t bear it.
