My Experience with LA Colors Matte Liquid Lip Color Perfection:
LA Colors Matte Liquid Lip Color has about 18 shades in its range. The colour selection is really amazing and has shades ranging from n*de to dark burgundy hues. Let’s start with the packaging.
The lipstick comes in a long, cylindrical, transparent plastic tube with a black-colored cap. The applicator of the lipstick comes attached with the black cap. It has a very convenient doe-foot shaped flat applicator which is soft and has sharp edges for neat and precise application. The shape of the applicator is just perfect for liquid lipstick application. You will not face unwanted and uneven coverage with this type of wand. It is quite small in size yet it helps you to get more hold and grip on the product flow. The colour of the tube is transparent and you can see through the shade of the lipstick from outside which actually helps in the shade identification process quickly. The tube of the lipstick has a regular screw-on black cap on it that closes properly in place. There are no chances of unwanted leakage of the product which makes it suitable for travel purposes. The shade name is mentioned on the side of the tube in black fonts. Ingredient details are also clearly listed on the body. Overall, I find the packaging very basic, sleek and minimal.
Shade: LA Colors Matte Liquid Lip Color Perfection is a beautiful cool-toned pinkish mauve colour. The colour darker than shown in lip swatches. This is again a very unique shade and one of the reasons why I picked it up. It looks very wearable and you can rock it during daytime. This color would suit a lot of skin tones.
Pigmentation: Needless to say, the pigmentation of this liquid lipstick is bomb! You get an opaque coverage in a single swipe. For pigmented lips, it will need a maximum of two swipes for the full colour payoff. I apply a single coat of these lipsticks and they occupy my lips perfectly with maximum opacity. I avoid giving too many coats of colour on the lips to avoid unwanted crumbling. I am really happy with the intense pigmentation of these lipsticks and they also hide pigmentation smartly. Fragrance wise, it has a mild candy-like fragrance which is never too bothering. The fragrance lingers for some time after which it gradually fades away.
Texture and Finish: The texture is smooth, very creamy, and the product when applied spreads evenly without any tug or pull. It feels sticky initially, but settles to a dead matte finish and then the sticky feeling is gone. Once the lipstick sets, it doesn’t move or budge from its place, so you are pretty sorted with it. The formula is lightweight and feels comfortable to wear. The more you apply, the more time it takes to dry up. After you apply this lipstick, it takes about 10-15 seconds to dry down completely and then settles to a dry, matte finish. While applying coats, be quick because the color settles really fast and can give a patchy look if you don’t pay proper attention. The formula isn’t very hydrating and I started experiencing a dry feeling with it soon after application. This was because my lips were not prepped. It will highlight fine lines of your lips if you are prone to dryness. It also shows dry patches prominently. One good point about this lip colour is that it is smudge proof and waterproof. Once it dries down completely, it is completely transfer proof as well. The application ensures a flawless and even finish with zero streakiness.
Staying Power: From morning to night, it stays in place throughout if you do not consume any food or drinks. On my lips, it stayed for a good 7-8 hours. It does not crack or flake off. With normal meals, the colour intensity is not affected much. However, with oily foods, it gets right off from the center of the lips. In that case, you would require reapplication, but the reapplication is not messy at all since the texture is so soft and creamy. If you have primed lips, the staying power will definitely be more.
Coming to the removal process, it is not possible to remove this lipstick with a normal water-based remover or wet wipe as the colour is highly pigment packed. You would surely need an oil-based makeup remover for complete removal of the lipstick. I also used some almond oil as I really had hard time removing it off.
