Hello lovelies! I'm back with part 2 of my Von Blair Series and this time we're talking liquid lipsticks. If you missed my first post on Von Blair's eye shadow trio you can read it here. But back to the lipsticks..
Currently Von Blair has 4 shades of liquid lipsticks to choose from. According to their website, they are highly pigmented and dry to a flat matte finish. They have a brush applicator with a twist bottom to get the lipstick up to the bristles. The website also lists that a little goes a long way, something that I quickly discovered after the first use (spoiler alert, I overdid it lol).
I received two shades, Danger (red) and Relevant (violet). Although they are from the same line, there are a few differences between them so I decided to do a mini review of each.
Danger is a timeless red and I absolutely love it! When it comes to red precision is everything and thanks to the brush tip it applies like a dream. The lipstick itself is very creamy and once it sets (which is very quickly) it is highly pigmented and flat. As far as wear goes, it stays on through eating, drinking and humidity. I got a good 5 hours out of this lipstick.
I must admit that I'm not usually one for purple. I love it on others however I feel much more comfortable/confidant in reds, pinks and nudes. Having said that, this lipstick has converted me! Relevant is a beautiful violet hue that isn't too light nor too dark and it matches the Untamed eye trio perfectly. It is very vibrant and unlike most mattes, it has some shimmer to it which is a nice change from the typical flat matte. Out of the two lipsticks, this one was a bit more of a challenge to apply. It is a bit thicker than Danger and as I mentioned earlier, I definitely over did it the first time. This led to an uneven finish with some streaking. Since realizing that less is more, I've had an easier time applying it. This is a shade that needs a few minutes to get perfect however once it's on, you're set for the day! It is very long-wearing and isn't overly 'drying'. I did notice that it clung to dry patches so I would recommend exfoliating and moisturising well before applying. On a side note, I've also worn this shade with gloss and it looks stunning!
