Skin Tone: Medium to Dusky
Recently, Zoeva Cosmetics launched a new set of liquid lipsticks called as the “Pure Matte Lips”. Being a lipstick junkie, I purchased three shades from the range. I already reviewed the shade “About Turn” and “Seeing Hearts” and today, I am going to review the final shade “Courtesy Call”. Read on to find more about this product.
$13.50 AUD for 6 ml
What it is:
A liquid lipstick that delivers supple, colour-rich lips that last all day.
What it does:
sd Leaving a fine, lightweight layer that sets to an extremely matte finish, these liquid lipsticks are comfortable to wear and deliver supple, colour-rich lips that last all day, thanks to a transfer-free, ultra-flexible and creamy formula.
My Experience with Zoeva Pure Matte Lips Courtesy Call:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a chic packaging. It has an outer black cardboard cover and the lipstick itself comes in a transparent tube with a black cap. The shade is visible from outside and also there is a sticker with the colour name at the bottom. Though it may seem like a normal liquid lipstick tube, I feel that there is some class in the packaging, mainly because, the applicator has a clear acrylic stem. It looks sophisticated. It has an interesting applicator which looks like a paddle brush. There is a slant at the center of the applicator and it becomes sharp and tapered towards the end. This is one of the best applicator I have tried as it makes application quite easy.
Shade: There are eight shades in this range and the shades in this collection are very different, not the usual pinks and reds. They have some unique shades like blue, grey, pumpkin orange etc. The shade “Courtesy Call” is a gorgeous brownish orange color. This is a beautiful neutral everyday kind of shade that will suit all skin tones.
Formula: It has a thin mousse-like texture that can be applied easily. It is very light on the lips and dries completely matte after around 5 minutes. The formula itself is so pigmented that one swipe is usually enough for full coverage and doesn’t dry out the lips. With the formula as pigmented as this and the unique brush applicator, struggling with a lip liner becomes unnecessary. The lipstick formulation is vegan, enriched with vitamin E and 100% free of parabens, mineral oils, perfume, and phthalates.
Wear Time: It lasts all day long for more than eight hours, which I think is really good. It does survive meals and I feel it transfers very little while having greasy food. The lipstick is transfer-proof which is really great.
Overall, I am impressed with this range of lipsticks and hope that Zoeva comes up with more wearable shades in this line.
