Thoughts: When I was checking out these liquid lipsticks, several girls mentioned how wonderful the formulas were and how many they own. For this reason, I decided to purchase one. I first tried this particular color and fell in love. Then I tried a darker one and I couldn't decide which one. That's why I purchased two.
Here's a closer look at the color.
Here's a closer look at the applicator.
Here's a swatch on my hand.
Here's how the liquid lipstick looks on me.
Here's an overall look with Viseart Theory Eyeshadow Palette in Cashmere on the eyes.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent while applying. It smells like vanilla. I just sniffed the product and I do smell a musky vanilla. With that said, the scent doesn't last that long. Secondly, the packaging is nice. It's simple and comes with a metallic top. The top definitely stands out with the typical black in the market. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick plastic. The top is also sturdy. I can feel a tight seal when I open and close. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For this reason, it's travel-friendly. It's also small enough to throw in your purse, bag, and even your pocket. It comes with the typical doe foot applicator most liquid lipsticks come in. It's slanted on one side of the tip. It's easy to outline and fill in the remaining of the lips. Third, the consistency is liquidity. It's a typical liquid lipstick. It's easy to apply and does not tug on the lips. With that said, it dries quickly within a minute or two. Once it's dried, it's matte and does not transfer. When it comes to liquid lipsticks, you need to prepare before applying. I highly recommend exfoliating or else it will show your fine and thick lines. The liquid lipsticks adhere to your lip skin and in-between all the fine to thick lines. It depends on the liquid lipstick. Some only will fall in-between the fine lines. Some will adhere to both fine and thick lines. I don't like when it adheres to the thick lines. It just doesn't look good on me. Thankfully, I'm okay how this particular liquid lipstick adheres. It does adhere to the thick line but it's not that bad. Fourth, the color is pretty. It's a lot more pinker than I remember when I purchased the product. Either that or my taste change which is possible. It's a good everyday color, as well as, for all year round. Pigmentation-wise it's decent. I would say it's not the most pigmented but it is up there. One layer was good enough. Lastly, most liquid lipsticks last until I eat since I have a tendency to wipe my mouth while eating. This didn't even last until I ate. It actually started coming off couple hours after applying. I noticed most of the colors came off in the center of the lips. It's strange because I remember when I tried it the day I purchased, the color did not come off at all. I'm not too sure what happened. Then again it was a tester. Either I got a bad batch, the consistency loosen since I purchased, or my memory fades me. Anything is possible. With that said, it's light-weight and comfortable. It's also not drying. I did not see any white residue in the center of the lips. I'm glad I got to try this product. I'm always curious about all the liquid lipsticks out in the market.
