Beginning of June 2016, I went to PHAMExpo LA 2016.

I took this picture from my Instagram. Here are the products I bought. I already reviewed Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Crush (bottom middle). For this post, I will review Dose of Colors right in the center.
This is Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in Truffle. Since I did a thorough review of Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in Brick, Sand, and Stone; Terra Collection (Limited Collection), I will base this on that.

Ingredients:
Isododecane Synthetic Beeswax VP/Hexadecene Copolymer Octyldodecanol Cyclopentasiloxane C18-36 Acid Triglyceride Disteardimonium Hectorite Phenoxyethanol Alcohol denatured Ethylhexylglycerin MAY CONTAIN: ± D&C Red No.28 Aluminum Lake (CI 45410) FD&C Red No.40 Aluminum Lake (CI 16035) Titanium dioxide (CI 77891) FD&C Yellow No 5 Lake (CI 19140) Aluminum Oxide Red 6 Lake (CI 15850) D&C Red 27 Lake (CI 45410) FD&C Red 7 Calcium Lake (CI 15850:1) Iron Oxides (CI 77499) FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090)
Here's a closer look at the color. The website describes it as "light brown with pink undertone." I agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the applicator. It's like most liquid lipsticks applicator but I find one thing interesting. It's not straight but gets wider at the bottom of the slanted tip.
Here's a swatch of Truffle on my hand.
Here's a comparison with my other Dose of Colors liquid lipsticks from left to right: Sand, Truffle, Stone, and Brick.
Here's how Truffle looks on me.
Here's an overall look. I have ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Nillionaire on the eyes.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while wearing the product. I just sniffed the liquid lipstick and it smells like vanilla with a slight chemical scent. The chemical smell is less compared to other liquid lipsticks I have tried. Secondly, the consistency is like all liquid lipsticks. It's liquidity, and in-between a liquid and a lipgloss. With that said, it goes on smoothly and does not tug on the lips. Third, it's easy to apply and you need to wait couple of minutes for it to dry. I highly recommend not pressing the lips together. If you do, you might feel slight stickiness as well as the movement of color. When you first apply the liquid lipstick, it'll look wet and shiny. Once it dries, it's matte and good for the whole day. It won't fade or wear off for the entire day unless you eat greasy food. The chemistry of the grease will make the liquid lipstick less a liquid lipstick. Also, I recommend applying a thin layer than thick. It'll dry faster. Fourth, the color is gorgeous and a great every day wear. I can see myself wear this all year round. Not only that, the color is pretty opaque. Lastly, it lasted all day on me. It didn't feel dry and did not dry out my lips. I did not see any white residue in the center of the lips.

Would repurchase: Yes.
